You’re listening to The Smiths. October 4, 2017 10:22 AM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope Anyone catch Tillerson’s press conference this morning? Would not deny the report that he called President Trump a “f—- moron” but did deny that Pence had to beg him into staying on as SecState.

That would be mean.

You need to be more current on your outrage. October 4, 2017 4:28 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Don’t get your boxers in a bunch, Sis. Interesting that you bust my chops for a “delayed” post. Your response speaks volumes. “Nothing to see here, move along, people…” A tad disappointing. October 4, 2017 5:19 PM Log in to Reply Ellynn What part of “FIRED (as she should be) ” leads you to being disappointed. It’s not like CBS suspended her in order to have a long investigation, “buy out’ her contact and put out a press release a week later they came to a mutual agreement to part ways. Her behavior was inexcusable and she was fired in a few hours. It’s not even a front page link on Fox anymore. Here, let me give you a current almost at the top of page “Republicans are bad “link. http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/10/04/michelle-obama-people-dont-trust-politics-because-republican-party-all-men-all-white October 4, 2017 8:37 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Send more like this. I’ll forward them to Republican consultants for their commercials next year! The CBS lady will be a perfect companion piece to the Bernie supporter who shot up the Republican softball game with a list of future victims/targets in his pocket. The Deplorables are emboldened now and everyone who doesn’t support American traditions will be out on their a$$es. Judge Moore done proved that!! MAGA! October 4, 2017 8:45 PM Ellynn You know I’m rolling my eyes, right? October 4, 2017 9:10 PM Ellynn Question, Why is Saxby Chambliss siting behind Former Equifax CEO Richard Smith at the Senate hearing? Is he his lawyer? October 4, 2017 4:33 PM Log in to Reply xdog I don’t know if he’s a lawyer but he’s a lobbyist now and my guess is Smith and firm are clients. The Monopoly Man was there too. http://mashable.com/2017/10/04/monopoly-mascot-photobombs-equifax-senate-hearing/#0_b5c7aVAqqq October 4, 2017 8:05 PM Log in to Reply evergreentree Few things are more self-indulgent than talking about peace with respect to people who clearly have no interest in it. It makes you look all high-minded, principled and noble and hangs the people who have the responsibility of dealing with the threat and protecting the populace from it out to dry as the warmonger bad guys. Take the disarmament movement: like the Soviets were ever going to give up their nukes, or their ideology that spreading Soviet communism across the globe would make the world a better place (chiefly for the Soviet communists of course, but yes, the rest of the globe too, but secondarily). Since Carter actually was president and did have to deal with recalcitrant and aggressive regimes like the Soviet Union, Iran, Hamas and the rest he knows this perfectly. But you don’t get Nobel Prizes or feted by the NGOs for being willing to face reality. October 5, 2017 8:50 AM Log in to Reply Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
