Morning Reads for Tuesday, May 10, 2016

Good morning! In the world of politics, there’s been a little bit of tension and maybe even an unkind word or two. For that reason, I’m going to start things off with Hamilton. One, listening to Hamilton has a knack for making one feel optimistic about our beautiful, great, glorious nation. And two, I submit Daveed Diggs, who plays the Marquis de Lafayette in Act I, and Thomas Jefferson in Act II. The man is joy personified – even his jumpsuit exudes joy. America already is great – and how lucky we are to be alive right now!

Carry on with your day! It’s going to be great.

Actual quote from Trump: “I was happy to see that,” Mr. Trump said of Mr. Khan’s election. “I think it’s a very good thing, and I hope he does a very good job because frankly that would be very, very good.” Asked why, Mr. Trump said, “Because I think if he does a great job, it will really — you lead by example, always lead by example. If he does a good job and frankly if he does a great job, that would be a terrific thing.” Does he speak on a 4th grade level because that’s how smart his… Read more »

Guess we have run out of substantive issue complaints on Trump on here from both sides from hump trump (business was misspelled) to this. If he said the new mayor is an unwanted Muslim you would rejoice. Lead by example should be acceptable to anyone.

The GOP voters choice isn’t my first choice either but it looks like here, we’d rather have an amoral career political looting her way to her first billion while sprinkling a little around on the way.

Ga. Supreme Court sends a case back to Fulton County Superior Court to rehear a lawsuit challenging the gun carry prohibition at Atlanta Botanical Garden.

Actually, a submarine is most definitely a boat.

I know this is the common vernacular for referring to them, however the non-nautical me standing near an Ohio-class “boat” couldn’t help but think “ship”.

As I said, Trump will change the map in the rust belt. Not saying he will win, this is far from over.

………Buckle up for the next six months: Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are effectively tied in the swing states of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, according to the results of a Quinnipiac University survey released Tuesday……

The math really isn’t in Trump’s favor, John. Realistically, the Democrats are starting with a 255-191 head start. Granted, I’m giving the Dems the “toss-ups” of NV, CO, VA, and WI. NV (6) and CO (9) due to their sizable Latino populations and the fact they broke for Obama in 2008 and 2012. Obama also won VA in ’08 and ’12 and I haven’t seen anything in state politics or population trends that would suggest to me that Republicans are magically on the ascendancy. Feingold is leading Johnson in the polling right now for the WI Senate race, latest WPR… Read more »

But Trump went to a military boarding school. That is the same as serving in the military. So your analysis is flawed.

Of course I am not serious. Everything you said is true. I think Hillary could win this election from a jail cell.

I would bet other rust belt places like Michigan, Illinois, Iowa……might be in play. I agree the Latino issue, could be an issue in some places in the west, but heavy union places like Nevada, I think puts them in play for Trump. My only point is this will not be a slam dunk, and polls are already tightening. The latest NBC monkey poll has down to 5 points…..It is a statistical tie, if the 83% support from GOP voters moves to 90% the same level Hillary is at with her party. The traditional number at election time is about… Read more »

Yeah but can he continue to talk out of both sides of his mouth regarding economics?

Of all the things people could like about him, it is the economic angle that is most baffling to me. He doesn’t really have a plan, he doesn’t seem to understand how things work, almost everything he says he later contradicts, and none of it makes any sense anyway.

Where are you pulling the info that Trump currently has the support of 83% of Republicans? Please don’t tell me someone on Morning Joe said that. I don’t think anyone here or anyone with a brain seriously believes the percentage is that high. Speaking of high, you’d have to be high to think that he can garner the support of 90% of Republican voters. The Bushes and Romneys of the world aren’t sitting out because their feelings are hurt, they’re sitting out because Trump represents a huge departure from Republican ideology. It’s going to take a stunning about face on… Read more »

The poll in question was the PPP. It also showed that Trump was more popular then hemorrhoids but did poll as high as lice or having a root canal.
