“I can’t imagine a more transparent and open process than put it on the internet, invite people’s comments and discussion, and then have an open amendment process following debate, and then vote.”
Sen. John Cornyn (TP-Texas).
Senator – How about the process where you don’t negotiate a bill in secret closed-door meetings excluding opposition members and even most members of your party, and where you actually hold committee hearings, get input from experts and the public on both sides, have an open debate and not keep it under wraps until days before a supposed vote? How about that process – would that be more transparent and open?
“Donald Trump is the kind of guy who would tell you he is ambidextrous because he picks his nose with his left hand.”
Red from Texas
As usual, Red has it right.
“We don’t want other leaders and other countries laughing at us anymore.”
President Donald Trump explaining why he is joining Syria and Nicaragua as the only countries to reject the Paris Climate Accords.
Red has a simple way to keep other leaders and countries from laughing at us – remove the golden-haired clown from the Oval Office.
“If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
Ted Nugent in 2012.
Ted is still alive and not in prison. Sad!
“No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly,”
Poor, poor pitiful President Donald Trump.
The Donald knows about unfair treatment of a sitting president. After all, when you question the very eligibility of a person to be president and accuse him of criminal acts without a shred of evidence, some might call that unfair. Here are just of few of the things he said about his predecessor.
“I want him to show his birth certificate. … There’s something on that birth certificate that he doesn’t like.”
“An ‘extremely credible source’ has called my office and told me that @BarackObama’s birth certificate is a fraud.”
“I think he’s a threat to our country.”
“Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”
“I think he’s the worst president maybe in the history of our country.”
Red really likes that last one.
“He’s nothing but a bullshitter.”
Attributed to Barack Obama speaking of President Donald Trump.
How could any self-respecting real estate developer credibly deny that. It’s in the job description – “Must have line of excellent bullshit from here until next Tuesday.” A real estate developer without bullshit is like an artist without a canvas, a hitter without a bat, a taxi driver without a steering wheel, a teacher without a blackboard, a . . . well you get the picture.
Since 1946, when presidents are above 50% approval, their party loses an average of 14 seats in the U.S. House in the midterm elections, compared with an average loss of 36 seats when presidents are below that mark.”
Jeffrey Jones – Gallup
What about when they are below 40%? Oh wait a minute, no president has polled that pathetically in the weeks before a mid-term election.
