Democrats hoping for disaster

By not confirming President Trump’s national security team the first day in office, Democrats are signaling that their resistance, aka their political stunt, takes precedence over national security. That’s a disgusting signal to send. It’s one thing to not confirm Rex Tillerson immediately. There were legitimate questions about him. It’s quite another to not confirm […]

Democrats overplay CBO report

It’s apparent that Democrats are overplaying the CBO’s report on repealing the ACA. It’s apparent after reading this Washington Post article. That’s apparent based on the opening paragraph of their article, which says “At least 18 million people would lose health insurance in the first year if Republicans move ahead with plans to repeal major portions […]

Democrats’ disheartening dishonesty

If there’s anything more disheartening than the Democrats’ dishonesty about the Anything But Affordable Care Act, I can’t find it. Elizabeth Warren’s op-ed is the latest in a lengthy list of dishonest anti-Republican diatribes. In the opening paragraph of her diatribe, Sen. Warren, aka Pocahontas (according to President-Elect Trump), she said “For eight years, Republicans […]

About that Trump-Lewis feud

This Washington Post article didn’t highlight what’s actually happening. Abby Phillip’s article starts by saying “A public feud between Donald Trump and Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) seemed to jettison any lingering hopes that the inauguration would temporarily ease partisanship in Washington and instead threatened to widen the rift between the two parties.” What’s actually happening […]

Dishonest Democratic centrists

Prior to this op-ed, I thought that the Democrats most prone to delusion lived in fever swamps with Keith Ellison, Nancy Pelosi and Babs Boxer as neighbors. Thanks to Stan Greenberg’s op-ed, I have to consider the possibility that the entire Democratic Party is nuts. Greenberg’s op-ed starts by saying “President Obama will be remembered […]

Moving on to 2018 already

Josh Kraushaar’s article for the National Journal contains some early observations on the 2018 elections for the House and Senate. I agree with Kraushaar when he said “If Trump struggles in of­fice and Demo­crats be­ne­fit as the op­pos­i­tion party, their odds of win­ning a Sen­ate ma­jor­ity would still be nearly im­possible. A mere eight Sen­ate […]

DAPL fundamentals

Kevin Cramer’s WSJ op-ed on the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) is must reading if you want the truth about what’s happening in North Dakota. Predictably, what’s happening isn’t getting reported by the so-called MSM. In the opening paragraph of his op-ed, Rep. Cramer said “[a] little more than two weeks ago, during a confrontation between […]

Moveon.org still is influential

Saturday afternoon, Ben Wikler, the Washington director of MoveOn.org, appeared on Fox News to talk about the incoming Trump administration. Saying that his presentation was nothing but the typical litany of progressive chanting points is understatement. After the interview, I visited MoveOn.org’s website. What I found was what I expected to find. One interesting thing […]

Democrats re-elect a loser

If I got paid $10 for each article I’ve read throughout the years that talked about Nancy Pelosi’s fundraising abilities, I’d be rich. This article mentions it again by saying “Few can match Pelosi as a fundraiser. She is herself the ninth wealthiest member of Congress, a resident of ‘billionaires’ row,’ and is tapped into […]

Pelosi’s leadership challenge

Rep. Tim Ryan, (D-OH), has run an aggressive campaign against Nancy Pelosi. Whether he wins (odds are against him winning) or not, Rep. Ryan has highlighted what political analysts have known for eight years: that the Democratic Party isn’t a healthy, thriving national party. Thanks to the Democrats’ humiliating defeats in 2010, 2014 and 2016, […]

Trust Robert Reich’s blueprint?

Democrats should follow Robert Reich’s blueprint to revitalize the Democratic Party. One of the parts of the article that’s interesting reading the part when Reich starts talking about insiders. Specifically, he said “the Democratic party apparatus is ingrown and entrenched. Like any old bureaucracy, it only knows how to do what it has done for […]

The Democratic civil war starts

This article in The Hill points to the Democrats’ uncivil war within the ranks. What’s important to highlight is the fact that both sides are right. For instance, The Hill reports that Robert Reich, Bill Clinton’s former Labor Secretary, said “This has been a huge refutation of establishment politics and the political organization has got […]

President Obama’s state of denial

This NY Times article highlights the fact that liberals haven’t come to grips with the fact that the nation rejected President Obama’s agenda this past Tuesday night. Dan Pfeiffer, a senior advisor to President Obama, said “It was not a rejection of Obama or Obama-ism. It was probably more about the two candidates running in […]

NRCC criticizes Angie Craig on ACA

The NRCC’s latest ad against Angie Craig doesn’t hold anything back. The transcript of the ad starts with a narrator saying “More attacks from Angie Craig, twisting Jason Lewis’ words out of context. Splice and dice enough, you can make anyone sound bad. Angie Craig will say and do anything to get elected.” Then it […]

Nolan votes against VA accountability

According to this roll call vote, Rick Nolan voted against a bill that a) had broad bipartisan support and that b) would have held VA officials accountable. Why Nolan voted against accountability is inexplicable, especially in light of the fact that Nolan’s congressional website issues page on veterans insists that “America’s obligation to our veterans […]

Angie Craig’s predictable play

I’m shocked, shocked I tell you, that Angie Craig is attempting to tie Jason Lewis to Donald Trump. It’s what a hardline lefty like Craig has to do. When I wrote this post, I highlighted Ms. Craig’s issues page. Ms. Craig’s issue page identifies her quickly as part Pelosi lefty, part Bernie Sanders lefty. For […]

Stupidity, ignorance, personified

Comments sections of newspapers frequently look like a bad stretch of Twitter. Still, they’re often instructive of what people think on issues. In some instances, they’re proof that people don’t think. The comment section of this thoughtful LTE is quite instructive. One commenter said “If a gun is just a tool, why do some people […]

Nolan joins Pelosi’s sit-in

Rick Nolan isn’t the brightest bulb in the chandelier. I recall thinking that when he was my congressman back in the mid-1970s. Back then, constituents knew that he’d vote the way Democratic leadership told him to vote. Nothing’s changed in 40+ years. Yesterday, Nolan joined the Democrats’ gun control sit-in. When it was his time […]
