SOPHOMORIC AND IMMATURE, THAT’S ME
After seeing a pic of Rachel Maddow from high school years back, I provided some brief commentary. A Maddow fan did not find it amusing.
“Maddow has more intelligence and class than you could ever fathom. Your immature, sophomoric comments tell us all we care to know about you.”
“They’re only worried about
winning this news cycle
& winning on election day”
On Tuesday’s Morning Joe the crew talks with Ron Fournier about Hillary Clinton’s pathological lying.
WILLIE GEIST, MSNBC : Do you think part of it, Ron, is she has assessed in this race that she’s up against someone that she can safely hold the ball and not go into detail and not talk about what exactly she did because she’s getting away with it against Donald Trump?
RON FOURNIER, NATIONAL JOURNAL: I literally have had senior officials . . . saying that trust doesn’t matter, that Bill Clinton won even though he was trusted less than the two people he ran against. What they don’t realize is that the world has changed.
Now we understand that trust does matter. She could still win, even by continuing this parsing and this lying, but then she’s going to be leading a country where two-thirds of the people don’t trust her. And you can’t transform our politics, or do half the things she wants to do if people don’t trust her.
They’re only worried about winning this news cycle and winning on election day. They are not thinking about what she is doing to undermine, not only her credibility, but the credibility of the whole political system and the Democratic Party.
Falling for a drive-by media meme? I thought Senator Sasse was smarter than that. Gave him way more credit than he deserves, sadly.
Who is talking about embracing David Duke, anyway? No one, that’s who. Trying to smear by accusation is just wrong, Senator Sasse. Repeating DNC talking points ain’t a good way of furthering your career or defending the party.
I left the Republican Party a long time ago, or rather the Republicans left me behind, abandoning common sense conservatism and embracing big government liberalism.
I am not a fan of Donald Trump, generally. But if it’s a choice between him and Hillary, that’s a no-brainer.
After watching the clip of him on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, I just have this to say:
I agree a lot with his points on Trump, Putin, China, and the Republican Party et al, but . . .
What a weasel.
We cannot afford Hillary as president.
Madness is an interesting word choice.
The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward attacked President Barack Obama on Wednesday, saying the commander-in-chief’s decision not to deploy an aircraft carrier because of budget cuts is “a kind of madness.”
Most in the media are clearly uncomfortable with Woodward challenging Obama. Attacking their own, one of the Old Guard and a bona fide Nixon enemy, is truly a sign of strange days. Woodward is merely telling the truth, which is dangerous for your career and reputation in these times, particularly for the younger, less experienced reporters who don’t have emeritus status.
Was Woodward referring back to Nixon and Watergate?
