Re: State of the Union: Feb 5 2019

Why February 5? What is her strategy? Somewhere between bridge mending and getting it out of the way. That was my guess too. Pelosi has won the first fight and it's best to bank that and mkve on. Arranging the SotU speech now has taken away Trump's option to whine that those nasty Democrats – loser...

Re: House Oversight - Feb 7 2019 -POSTPONED: Michael Cohen Public Testimony

Cohen is alleging Trump and Giuliani have made ongoing threats against his family members. If you're Trump and Guliani, and you know Cohen is cooperating with the SCO and SDNY attorneys, wouldn't there be a concern that phone calls or other communications to Cohen (and possibly with their consent, h...

Re: State of the Union: 2019

This is the Nancy Pelosi that's been ready and able for decades. Pelosi's image has suffered in past years due to incessant right-wing demonizing. People are now getting to see her in action (many of whom didn't pay much attention to the workings of the House in past years). She got a lot of favora...

Re: Back To Politics In January 2019 With Speaker Pelosi & a Democratic House!

Well, we're gonna see setbacks and progress this year. Which is better than just setbacks like we've had for the past two years. But there will still be setbacks, so we'll have to be ready for them. One concern is that the Dems develop a faction like the Tea party/FreedomCaucus wing of the R's -- a...

Re: Mueller's investigation

Anybody else get the impression that SC Mueller and/or DAG Rosenstein gave the young Mr. Whittaker a lesson (warning?) about obstruction of justice? For an 'acting' AG, he sure seems impotent and irrelevant. That's been one of my theories. (The other being Whittaker would take care to protect his l...

Trump needs someone who is tough, who dislikes the Justice Department, and who is strict on immigration and border security: Joe Arpaio.

Re: Mueller's investigation

I had an optimistic thought strike me today. I don't have those very often, and I don't think it's at all likely, but hear me out: Suppose Whitaker really did come in as Trump's guy in the DOJ, ready to defend his boss to the hilt. He's still a lawyer who has been a prosecutor before - albeit a shi...

Another woman begged me not to judge trump by my emotions because something very important was about to be released that would explain his behavior this weekend. I assume it's this so-called assassination plot.

Trump is being mercilessly trolled and savaged on social media over his skipping out of the memorial visit. And I haven't seen the MAGAts this quiet since Cesar Sayoc.

Re: 2018 Wisconsin Governor - (D) Win

I went to bed when Walker was slightly ahead and Brown County looked to have a number of votes likely to go his way, but as talk of thousands uncounted in Milwaukee County arose. This was pleasant wake up news. The Unholy Trinity from my childhood state of Walker, Ryan and Priebus is at last history.

Re: MAGA BOMBS

Trump's staff actually got him to use the words "terroristic acts" in his remarks a moment ago. Though he then sounded like he knew nothing about the person. I suspect a tweet rollback later.
