Zell’s address was the speech of a statesman who realized the positions of his own party were pathetic and sick with weakness. We need him today. Especially today.

Amen! It’s high time the grown-ups in the GOP speak up about Trump’s dangerous and divisive campaign.

The liberal H Post disagrees with you! …………Clinton’s war-mongering is a matter of public record. Just today, the New York Times published a devastating policy analysis of Clinton’s role in the overthrow of Libyan president Muammar el-Qaddafi and the subsequent descent of Libya into chaos and civil war. “We came, we saw, he died!” Clinton exclaimed after Qaddafi was captured, tortured, and summarily executed. Afterwards, Hillary’s aides developed a “brag sheet” to showcase her role in Qaddafi’s overthrow. Then, Clinton and other Obama officials stepped back and let the nation disintegrate. As the Times reporters recount, “Mrs. Clinton would be… Read more »

How does your post relate to my sarcastic quip? Like, do you even read what people say before posting a wall of text?

……….dangerous and divisive campaign………..

Did you not post the above? The theme of the Hillary campaign, and supporters like you, is vote for Hillary because Trump is dangerous. My point is Hillary has her own issues, even on the left about being dangerous. I did not think I had to connect dots for a very smart lawyer like you.

I appreciate you have a very full clipboard, but it’s possible to sarcastically mention Trump’s policies in relation to Noway’s comment on Zell Miller without triggering your treatise on Hill-dawg’s approach to Lybia.

Face it, you got caught, using the talking points from the Hillary campaign about being “dangerous”. My main point is we are facing real issues, and supporters of both campaigns would rather play talking point games, rather than solve problems. Rather sad, after what is happening with the all the unrest.

LOL….You are way smarter than that. It is her campaign theme just watch the news use google…… She is even running the daisy LBJ add used against Goldwater, now updated against Trump. Ironic since Hillary worked on the Goldwater campaign, No matter what I post, you attack it, even something this obvious.

Hillary Clinton brands Donald Trump a dangerous ‘demagogue’

I seem to have misplaced my handbook from the Clinton campaign, do you mind letting me know the buzzwords I should avoid lest I trigger another copy + paste apocalypse?

I stand by my original comment on this topic. I will add the lack of dealing with real issues on both sides, is creating this toxic environment. 70 percent of people in the western world are feeling economic decline, via ill thought out trade policy, and technology. Add on a broken criminal justice system, ie War on Drugs/94 crime bill, Neocon foreign policy that has made the world less safe and we cannot afford, crumbling infrastructure, healthcare system we cannot afford and a broken retirement options that has many choosing between medicine and food, you have a very toxic environment.… Read more »

So, I hope the others were labeled “red” and “blue”, not “black” and “yellow”… Still, c’mon guys, that’s really stupid.

What the hell is wrong with these people? No one thought…hmmm… maybe putting a sign up that says “White Elevators” may not be the best idea. Let’s pick another color.

To be fair, aren’t all the elevators at the RNC “white” elevators? It’s especially true now that Trump has scared off Sandoval, Haley, Martinez and pretty much every other Republican whose skin tone isn’t pale white or spray-tan orange.

The End Of A Republican Party Racial and cultural resentment have replaced the party’s small government ethos http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-end-of-a-republican-party/ Busy next couple of weeks for GeorgiaPol and ‘conservative’ pundits. Week one will see a nonstop campaign of turd polishing; week two will vacillate between perpetual outrage and victimhood. Probably be a good time to start thinking about what happens when this finally ends. How do you get the stain of Trump off you? Is it going to be another 4-8 years of obstructionism or will the GOP actually follow the will of the voters to do something? I guess this requires… Read more »
