    Yes, as is politically expedient...

    It is really sad that some in our country have more trust & respect for foreign adversarial leaders than our own loyal opposition.

    Yeah. Generally speaking if you're the Speaker of the House and you don't vote for a member of your own party to be President there's going to be problems.

    There's a reason terms such as "lessor of two evils" and "i held my nose when I voted for so and so" are so popular.

    Why do I always feel that way? It shouldn’t be. The last time I voted for a president that I was happy to mark on my ballot was George W. Bush the first time around. Then I became “pretty dadburned disillusioned” (to quote Ray Stevens) and couldn’t vote for him a second time. The last president I was proud of was Ronald Reagan. I know I’ll get castigated for this but there’s a mediocre actor who found his calling.

    I had never had been so excited to vote as I was in 2000 for George W. I just knew he was going to learn from his father’s mistakes and he was going to be Reagan 2.0...

    As a result I’ve never gotten excited about a politician since. As W said, “fool me once...”

    His calling was writing love letters to Nancy. He was still an actor, he just did speeches better than movie scripts.

    So you are using twisted logic to think someone is racist, even they didn't mention race.

    If someone told Schumer and Sanders that they belong in a German oven, would you assume that person is being anti-semitic?

    RINO is the term for that rare Republican who puts country above party.

    Right wing = lie, lie, and lie some more.


    "When I am president I'm going to be working for you. I'm not going to have time to play golf" Donald J. Trump, world class snake oil salesman and compulsive golfer August 2016

    The definition of "racist" as "anyone who is white" is itself racist.
