    Take the hit!!

    I just finished watching the Ted Cruz interview on Meet the Press with David Gregory. Gregory grilled Ted Cruz and did everything short of saying he was flatout wrong. I commend Ted Cruz for standing solid and making his case. Everything he said was unchallengeable and should have ended the discussion. But, Gregory  said the facts were bunk. He basically told us what is happening | Read More »

    The Water Cooler~ Harry Reid

    This is just piggybacking on a comment on my previous diary. I asked in my own comment what Harry Reid does for the state of Nevada. Another poster (and let me apologize for killing the messenger) told me in a very detailed and concise comment what he did for the state.

    The last post about Ted Cruz

To see what I am talking about go read them yourself. Is it just me or does anyone else smell a rat?  Personally, I have not liked this poster because a lot of times he just wants | Read More »

    The Water Cooler ~ McCain Staffer: My boss F!@ng hates Ted Cruz

    said a McCain advisor to GQ’s Jason Zengrele. “He is just offended by his style.” I don’t know about you but I think the moral high ground to be offended by anything is lost when you, a person in a very prominent position lacks the dignity to comport yourself better to the press. Who is this foul mouth scumbag? And why are we paying his | Read More »

It is about our trust and credibility problem with the Establishement Republicans. 1. They don’t want o fight this thing. They are cowards 2.

    What should have happened in Syria.

    OK, now I am no diplomat, foriegn policy whiz, or military strategist– Although, I do play a lot of Risk on the computer.

This is how we should have responded | Read More »
