Trump hit a home run.


Yeah he did.  This one really put Pelosi and company on their heels.

Not a good week for the Democrats.  The Iowa caucus debacle, Trump’s very strong SOTU speech where Nancy Pelosi totally embarrassed herself and today the Senate will end the witch hunt and the 2020 race for the White House begins.

Trumps Speech was one of accomplishments and American Greatness.  A big emphasis on African American needs.  He also let the Democrats know that that he’s not going to allow them to have the sole voice on health care as he’s going to make a pitch to the nation on a system that is not a socialist take over.

The optics for the Democrats and Pelosi was a really bad look.  They are coming across as a hateful vindictive block of people and if they keep this projection up Trump will cruise to reelection and even the House control could be in jeopardy.

Lol…you two definitely were the target audience. Glad it worked for you.

Trump protecting preexisting conditions when Republicans are literally trying to undo the only thing protecting preexisting conditions through activist judges cause they can’t do it by legislation. Remember when you hated that? Lol. So stupid even for you to fall for.

Rush Limbaugh? Bawhahahahah. Talk about degrading an award…I was embarrassed for that dropout…
Not surprised a birther awarded another birther though.

I thought it was a great week for Democrats proving they are the only thing holding the line from a complete takeover of a once proud nation by a cult of conformism to one man.

It would be sad if it wasn’t so obvious and cheesy.

The fact is there will be a lot of spots up for reelection in November. I fully expect a move back to the right here in NC. Nationally, I do not keep up with other states, but if it’s true (I know it is) that unemployment is low, wages are climbing… most folks worry about the bottom line, and when it’s looking good.. they want morel

Do you watch a lot of reality tv? If not, sounds like you would enjoy it.

I bet you love those Run Forest Run signs too. Dan is your man.

Actually, when I was in Pharmacy School at UNC, my wife was expecting a child. Cell phones were not common then. She called the school to tell them to get me. My friend came running across the street to get me. She found me, and I started running to call her back. A couple of my buddies said “run Forest run”, as that movie wasn’t too old then. Those signs remind me of that exciting time in my life. Otherwise, political signs are little more than litter. I’ll add, you have no idea who I am or what I like. I’d appreciate you making no guesses in the future.

What I liked most about the speech was the recognition of the Tuskegee air man, who fought in WW2, Korea, and Vietnam. Trump giving him General’s rank I felt was quite touching to the man in what will obviously be the setting of the 100 year old man’s life.

Like I said, you were the target audience. I don’t have to make any assumptions. You tell us.

I think Dan Forrest is the perfect candidate for you. Good analysis on the rightward turn too…where have you been for the past decade?

Got any more predictions?

Unless you were a socialist, an illegal alien, a terrorist or an elitist liberal snob the speech seem to target everyone else.

The last decade worked fine for me. The thing about the bathroom was stupid. The present governor wants to expand medicaid, which I oppose. States that expanded it previously now have to pay it back. NC cut taxes, but now has budget surplus to restore the rainy day fund Purdue raided it. Her and Easley were so tied up in coastal development pocket lining she had to decline to run for a second term. That’s where I was. Forrest was all about that bathroom bill. If he chooses that cross to die on, it’s his choice. Otherwise, I’ve enjoyed paying less tax. I live in Wake County, which is raising property taxes with a democratic county board. I bet that will change, too.

Well we know you aren’t elite, so like I said you were the target audience.

That and the honored guest…Mr “Barack the Magic Negro” and “Take the Bone out of your Nose”.

So definitely it wasn’t aimed at the elite, or the good.

Lol, good analysis as always. Like I said…you were the target audience. Good luck with that red wave. I think that is why your boy Holding is quitting. As is Mark Walker. Cause you know, trending red. Lol

So what you are saying is that you are admitting to being a Liberal Elitist Snob..Gotcha

Duh. I know. I already said that.

I just find it so weird that the President wanted to take credit for all the achievements of the “Magic Negro”
I thought y’all hated that Kenyan Muslim?

Holding does not live in what would be his new district. He is now my representative, but I understand he’s going back into the private (banking) sector. Got fill those coffers for retirement.  In the general assembly of NC, the districts will be radically different also.
