Re: For President: Ted Cruz

I wasn't fond of some of Ted's campaign tactics, but he did ultimately fire the mastermind behind some of the nastier stuff. And at least on stage and on TV, he kept true to Reagan's 11th commandment. The fact of the matter is Trump treated Cruz like absolute horseshit until such time Cruz left the ...

Re: For President: Ted Cruz

What Ted just did took chutzpah. I thought his speech was excellent, and he was clearly positioning himself for a future run by trying to strike a mass appeal tone. If the primary aim of this convention was party unity, the GOP has failed. John Kasich? No show for the convention of his political par...

It's happened again... :( [Officers murdered]

Reportedly, three police officers in the city of Baton Rouge were murdered ambush-style this morning while responding to a 911 call that appears to have been a setup. The shooter is still at large. I've watched four media outlets over the past 30 minutes; none have provided a description of the shoo...

Re: Trump Picks Mike Pence As VP Nominee

The optics look bad given her employment background; I'll certainly grant you that. I am not going to automatically dismiss her as unqualified or unfit -- at least not yet. Unlike her predecessor, at least she has a collegiate education in an environment-related field of study: http://www.espp.msu.e...

Re: Trump Picks Mike Pence As VP Nominee

You are 100% correct re: Kasich. You almost have to wonder if Pence's support of Cruz lowered Cruz's performance in the Primary. I've been wondering that myself. My conclusion is the (negative) impact to Cruz from strictly the endorsement was low. Cruz's on the ground campaign strategy in Indiana wa...

Re: Trump Picks Mike Pence As VP Nominee

For as much as Trump is talking up Pence, many Indiana citizens seem to have a different opinion of Mr. Pence's job performance and political views. Some interesting articles on Pence's background and popularity (or lack thereof) in the Hoosier State: http://www.politico.com/story/2016/07/trump-mike...

Re: Trump Picks Mike Pence As VP Nominee

I'm not a big Pence fan (because of his social stances and history of supporting TPP), but I will say he's a considerably better pick than Fiorina. :blink

A creepy logo for a creepy ticket. Makes sense to me! Loved John Dingell's tweet about it.

Re: Running mate possibilities for Trump

Pence is a career politician who has said (and written) some ignorant things during his political career. I am not a big fan of his. He didn't even crack the 50 percent threshold in his 2012 election in Indiana. Finally, he was (is?) a big supporter of the TPP. Now, all that being said, the tea part...

Re: No Indictment For Hillary...

I am not surprised in the least that Hillary was not indicted. Still would love to know what's hiding in Donald's tax returns. This decision will pave the way to overturn many convictions. It's called equal protection under the law. General Petraeus, Scooter Libby, G. Gordon Liddy, Charles Colson an...

Re: JIM PRICE STINKS!!!

Speaking of joyless, nobody ever mentions the situation where Larry Osterman mysteriously vanished from Tigers broadcasts after nearly 25 solid years with the team, to make room for Mister Eye's buddy, who was at the time an enormous downgrade. Agreed!!! I could not STAND Jim Price as the main play...

Re: Prediction: Trump will win the general election.

I'm not quite in the "Never Trump" crowd, but I gotta say, it won't take much for me to move there.

90 days ago - I would've never voted for Hillary. Today - I am actually not ruling out that possibility.

LMFAO at Kmart!!!!

Gotta love Kmart - a great example of Detroit's history of failure in most aspects of society. The web site linked below is GREAT. The author has visited a handful of Kmart stores in the Inland Empire area of California and has documented numerous - let's say, interesting - findings with regard to p...

Re: Trump University - detailed reporting

I suspect the media is waiting and sitting on stories until he receives the nomination in Cleveland.
I agree completely.
