Just for some historic perspective, I believe your choice at the time was AlGore, ... and possibly Ralph Nader. Nader probably wouldn't have invaded Iraq ... but recall at the time that virtually everyone in our intelligence services, the Germans, the French, the British and Hillary Clinton herself thought it was the right thing to do. Either way, "big government" would have run even further amok eight years earlier ... and/or we could have had John Kerry as our Chief Exec.. .... uuuuhhhh. I don't have anything personal against Jeb other than his firm grip on the 'establishment' standard, but I'd much prefer someone other than a Bush or a Clinton on the ticket. However, if I have to hold my nose again and pull the chain, I'll do it ... because that's the kinda gutless guy I am ... and because it's an imperfect world and the truth is that it could very well become far more imperfect in the near future.

I personally know politicos - and I assure you that they exist in a good ole boys network. About the only thing that holds them in check is the good ole boys network on the other side of the aisle. Without an honest media to keep track of them, you get Kennedys and Clintons running around with their trousers at their ankles, and machine politics ascendant.

We need people like Ben Carson, and leaders like Scott Walker who are able to take the battle to the parapets and knock over castles made of playing cards, union cards, and press credentials.

Here is the perfect example of why Dumbass politicians can be just as bad as their Jackass associates in the Big Government Party. This guy has the making of a great Washington DC addition to help out the "Small Government" DOP, and will probably be running for congress in the next election cycle. As the saying goes, "No Good Deed Ever Goes Unpunished". And when it is a bunch of them, acting for the good of the community, there has to be some way to Regulate their behavior.

Watch the Video at the top of the article.

Lawmaker wants Cajun Navy, other volunteers to get training, pay fee

Quote:Republican State Senator Jonathan Perry of the Vermillion, Lafayette area, is working on legislation that could require training, certificates and a permit fee to allow these Good Samaritans to get past law enforcement into devastated areas. He said some were turned away.

“At the end of the day, there are going to be two things that are going to be the hurdle when you approach it from the state’s standpoint,” said Sen. Perry in a radio interview. “Liability is going to be number one for them. They don’t want the liability of someone going out to rescue someone and then not being able to find them (the rescuers) and, secondly, there’s a cost.”

Members of the Cajun Navy don’t understand the regulations.

"How can you regulate people helping people? That doesn't make sense to me," said Clouatre.

"And we'll never know how many people got rescued, right? Because there were no bureaucrats with clipboards marking down how many. They just went and did it," said publisher Scott McKay. "The fact that John Perry is a Republican, right? It's like 'Hey, you ran on small government. Now you want to regulate the Cajun Navy.' What are you doing?"
 
Senator Perry did not return phone calls for a comment.

Members of the Cajun Navy said they know the flooded areas better than the official rescuers who came in from out of town. They said they did things officials would not have been allowed to do to save lives.

Some we talked to are not opposed to taking a rescue safety course but said it would be better through the private sector.

Here's a Classic Example of just how the Dumbasses are the Jackasses best friends.  Too bad it doesn't work the other way around, aye?

7 Weeks Before Election, Republicans Help Advance Another Obama Judicial Nominee

Quote:While the Senate has entered that part of the political calendar when confirmations traditionally halt, the Judiciary Committee on Thursday voted 13-7 to advance the nomination of U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh for the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.  

The cadence of judicial nominations customarily follows what’s known as the Thurmond-Leahy rule. The rule, a longstanding gentleman’s agreement among senators, prohibits confirmations of new judgeships in the months before a presidential election.  
------
But when a RepublicanDumbass was last in the White House, Democrats demanded observation of the Thurmond rule. Insisting the rule was apolitical, they pushed to apply it before both the 2004 and 2008 presidential elections.

“Not reflecting on any single judicial nominee or that person’s qualifications,” Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said in October of 2004, “it has been a practice and tradition in the Senate that in a presidential election year, we suspend the approval of federal judges after the nominating convention of a major party.”

This year’s Republican Dumbass National Convention ended July 21.

This is exactly why I call them Dumbasses, and why I rue the day I was ever a member of that sorry excuse of what they call a party.  Dumbasses are still Dumbasses, and exactly why we really need a REAL 2ND Party.

Evidently, you didn't read your own link, or else you read bad intent into everything. The article prompted the idea that the GOP wanted to diffuse the Dems strategy to call them obstructionists, even though the tradition is no confirmations at all duringthe election.

If there is any better way the Dumbasses enable the Jackasses, even when they are down and out, this is the perfect example. And isn't McConnell still the majority leader? Give me Strength! Gah

I have watched the Dumbasses shoot themselves in the foot, drop a piano on themselves, throw away their lead, and "fill in your own pet peeve", so many times I will see change when I actually see change. What a stupid bunch of Dumbasses. S24

Will Senate Republicans ONCE AGAIN screw America on Obamacare?

Ahh, this is more like the Dumbasses as I now envision when they are on the verge of doing something.  Tinker around the edges and then proclaim victory.   And no matter what they promise, they always find a way to step on their Johnson, and then advance to the rear.

Republicans Rebrand Obamacare Strategy From ‘Repeal’ to ‘Repair’

The Republicans appear to be self-correcting themselves BEFORE they approve something,

which is in stark contrast to the Democrat's method of approving something first and then seeing what is in it that needs correcting.

Clinton (either or both) said there are problems with "Obamacare" that need fixing. I'm not sure the ACA has been fully implemented, meaning it is taking many years so to repeal it without an immediate replacement would be impossible. "Repaigr"/fixing it, keeping what are agreed upon good parts, makes sense to me.
I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

The ObamaCare law cannot be simply replaced. What Trump has done so far is great. He's revoked the penalty clause. It was stupid Justice Roberts who turned the whole thing into a tax, and taxes must originate on the Hill, not the Oval office. Taking the ACA apart piece-by-piece is almost impossible., because it was designed that way on purpose.. a single line in the multi-thousand page law often changed twenty or more seperate outside documents that control other things. Fixing those things is a nightmare.

The best thing is to allow the industry to submit their own plans with just a few pages of regs. Put in no pre-conditions, the ability to stay on a family contract until a certain age, and get rid of monopoly-inducing prohibitions to crossing county and state lines. Maybe a few other things and let the Insurance companies compete.

Here's a great example of how some Dumbasses, Dumbass cartoonists in this case, are shooting their party in the foot, while aiding and abetting the Jackasses.

John Nolte expresses my very thoughts on the Republican DC leadership, and just how totally worthless they really are. Here the Jackasses are in total disarray, and they are cowering in the corner, afraid to take action and actually get things done.

Useless Cowards: Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell Blow Historic Opportunity

Mr. Nolte Concludes:

Quote:Republicans are in possession of an almost unheard of historic opportunity, a brief moment in time when the planets have aligned and everything we ever wanted is within our grasp. The evil media is as weakened and as impotent as it's ever been. The chances of us getting another opportunity like this are almost zero. And those of us old enough to remember the Gingrich Revolution of 1995, know what is possible, for even with a Democrat president, Gingrich seized the moment and flooded the zone with our wish list.

Right now, there is nothing stopping Paul Ryan from fulfilling his promises -- other than his own unforgivable cowardice.

Right now, there is nothing stopping Mitch McConnell -- other than his own pathetic fecklessness.

Even if you are a NeverTrumper who disagrees with Trump's populist proposals and are more closely aligned with Establishment Republican ideas, riddle me this…

What good is your precious establishment if they refuse to implement those ideas -- if they are too cowardly to move, to act, to be bold, to seize history?

Why should all of us not expect the POTUS to explain such an extraordinary charge? I don't get the disagreement on this issue with McCain?

I think it is pretty well established that Trump indeed had his residence tapped during the campaign and before being sworn in. We have discussed it to some extend several weeks ago, and a lot of experts seem to agree with him.

McDoofus is grandstanding, in order to gain attention.

That is not an article about POTUS Obama unlawfully ordering wiretaps on the Trump campaign, I suspect you know that. That's why your hero said it was akin to Watergate.

That article is about the campaign being IDd by the USA security apparatus under lawful auspices which you avidly support due to Flynn and other operatives who may have a conflict of interest in serving the USA and their private interests. It's what their job is.

Obama had dick to do with it. You'd want it done for a candidate not of your persuasion and everyone here knows it.

You support all these intrusive laws allowing all this surveillance, so you should not complain when someone you like is surveilled. Maybe your toaster is surveilling you, ask Kellyanne.

No. What happened was that Podesta clicked on some phishing link from a hacker in his underwear and allowed access to Hillary's more embarrassing exploits. To mitigate that, the Dems manufactured the idea that Russia stole the election Since the Dems project more than anyone else, it is easy to look at reality and see how they were trying to steal the election - giving questions to Hillary before debates, and sabotaging Bernie at every step. Once Trump beat Hillary, in spite of the criminality, They went to plan B, to delegitimize Trump.

The Flynn travesty was not legal. Obama had his fingerprints all over the monitoring of the Trump staff. The Deep State is not a bunch of whistle blowers - it is Obama apologists and henchmen willing to lie, cheat, and fall on their swords, when necessary. The most incriminating act was Obama telling his people inside the Intel community to spread everything to all 17 agencies, which helped camouflage the leaks

Totally inaccurate. You don't know sh.it.

I posted an article earlier, Roger Stone said he assumes Trump may have been eyeballed when the FBI caught him meeting with Guccifer. Which is likely factual and perfectly legal and perfectly good to keep track of men who want to run our nation while they are possibly associating with foreign criminals.

Flynn was not a travesty, the jerk was on Turkey's pay roll and lied about it earlier. He should be charged with contempt like several other liars ought to be before him, including some of Obama's guys.
