Yup, that’s just what the country needs, a time share salesman in the Oval Office
Some here of a certain age may recall the name “Kidder, Peabody.” The 125 year old investment firm was bought by GE in 1986. Shortly after, the firm was caught up several large Wall Street scandals. A year later, GE chairman Jack Welch cleaned out the management at the firm, and appointed a GE board member, Silas Cathcart, the former chairman of Illinois Tool Works, | Read More »
Will Donald Trump send John McCain packing? (GOP soap-opera, short version)
There’s a fascinating undercurrent to this week’s Arizona GOP primaries that hasn’t gotten too much attention in the MSM, primarily because the MSM is focused on Trump 24/7; but it may tell us something about the effect a Trump candidacy could have on Republicans in down ballot contests. Here’s what we know so far: Trump leads by about 10% in most Arizona polls, according to | Read More »
Dear Ted: Every day, five…. no ten times a day, demand Trump’s tax returns; and ask what he is doing about his blind trust?
Well, it looks like we pretty much have a two person race, which is what Cruz has wanted for some time. There are two things that Ted must do every day, continuously, non-stop, to pin Trump down. 1. Demand that he release his tax returns. Trump’s “argument”..that he can’t do so because he’s supposedly being audit, is full of crap. It has more holes than | Read More »
Only megalomaniacal, narcissistic, fascist wannabes believe that they are making a “sacrifice” by running for President. Only Trump is stupid enough to come out and say so.
Trump has a new ad out. It’s a different tone….deeper, heavier, more ominous. But what is most striking is the first ten seconds. Watch for yourself. Yup, that’s right folks. “Der Donald” actually deigns to tell us that he’s making a “sacrifice” in order to run for President and save all us poor folks from whatever. It’s hard to believe that nobody in Trump’s campaign | Read More »
Everyone says Hillary will clobber Trump, but what happens if the Dem nominee is Sanders? (Dumb and Dumber run for President)
I’ve been an avid supporter of Ted Cruz since he first announced, and continue to hope that he can find a pathway to the nomination. However, if Trump wins Florida and Ohio, it’s going to be difficult, at best. We continue to get polls showing that both Cruz and Rubio would beat Hillary, but she’d clobber Trump. (Though one would think that pollsters, after their | Read More »
Rubio must drop out now AND endorse Ted Cruz. The first step is useless without the second
Watching the returns tonight, we hear the pundits tell us that Marco Rubio, in light of his gawd-awful showing in today’s races, faces a really difficult decision. Not true. In fact, he doesn’t. It’s over. The fat lady has already sung. Loudly, clearly, and convincingly. So now, Rubio must exit the race, and hopefully will do so tomorrow. We’re told this will sharpen the focus | Read More »
It’s less than 11 months to the inauguration. Hey, Donald…exactly how long does it take to put a $ ten billion company into a blind trust?
It’s time for Republicans opposed to Trump to start putting the screws to him hard over this question…………….pin him down, don’t let him escape Trump claims that he’s worth some $ ten billion. I, and many others, think the actual number is far less…a great deal less…more like ONE whole zero less. But for purposes of this discussion (since the bigger number works for us) | Read More »
Whatever Trump’s hiding in his tax returns, it’s gotta be pretty bad for him (THIS WILL NOT STAND!)
Trump was on several of the Sunday shows this morning. By my count, when the subject of his tax returns came up, THREE TIMES he was asked if he would release a brief summary for each of the last few years, providing the following information: 1. Total income 2. Effective tax rate, and/or total income taxes paid 3. Amount of charitable donations. Now, this is | Read More »
The Kim Kardashian Kandidate
Tens of millions of Americans are fascinated each day by people whose sole claim is that they are “famous for being famous.” The tabloids feature on their front page the latest comings and goings, crack-ups, and crack use, who is doing what to whom. There’s TMZ, Access Hollywood, People, zillions of blogs, thousands of paparazzi…..all devoted to providing us the latest 411 on Kim, Khloe, | Read More »
What, in the name of God, is wrong with evangelicals?
One of the lesser reported stories of the Obama era, by the MSM, is the tremendous growth in support for the pro-life movement. Polling data is near unanimous in showing that public opinion is changing. The crowds at rallies get larger each year. Abortion clinics around the country are closing their doors. Many states have enacted laws to protect the unborn. While there is still | Read More »
