Trouble in TrumpLand? Kellyanne Conway’s War on Romney


Is Kellyanne Conway going rogue?

That’s the question on everyone’s minds after Donald Trump’s top adviser appeared on three different Sunday morning news shows to openly criticize Mitt Romney, who is reportedly being considered for secretary of state. On NBC’s Meet the Press, Conway said she had received an enormous amount of correspondence from Trump supporters who were not happy about Romney getting the plum job.

“People feel betrayed to think that Romney, who went out of his way to question the character and the intellect and the integrity of Donald Trump, would be given the most significant cabinet post of all,” Conway said.

Over on ABC’s This Week, Conway said Romney wasn’t your typical Republican Trump critic in the primaries.

“There was the ‘Never Trump’ movement and then there was Governor Mitt Romney,” Conway said. “He went out of his way to hurt Donald Trump.”

On CNN’s State of the Union, Conway continued her campaign against the former Massachusetts governor.

“We don’t even know if he voted for Donald Trump,” Conway said. “He and his consultants were nothing but awful to Donald Trump for a year. I’m all for party unity, but I’m not sure we have to pay for that with the secretary of state position. I think there are concerns that those of us that are loyal have, and we want a secretary of state who’s loyal to the president.”

On MSNBC’s Morning Joe program the next day, co-host Mika Brzezinski reported that two sources inside the Trump transition team said the president-elect was “furious” about Conway’s public dissension.

“Kellyanne went rogue at Donald Trump’s expense at the worst possible time,” Brzezinski said, quoting one of the sources. “Instead of driving Donald Trump’s message, she’s pushing her own agenda.”

Later, Conway herself responded to Brzezinski’s reporting through co-host Joe Scarborough.

“It is sexist,” Scarborough said, summing up Conway’s opinion on the story. “She says she can have any job she wants and is thinking about taking a role inside and outside the campaign.”

Because Conway has been fiercely loyal towards Trump, some are wondering if this is theater. Is Trump egging her on, trying to create the appearance of an internal rift for some unknown reason? If so, who is the intended audience? Supporters? Critics? Romney? Steve Bannon?

If it’s real, then what can explain Conway’s decision to take this fight to the airwaves?

Either Conway is in imminent danger of being ousted or this is a Trump-manufactured controversy with an uncertain endgame.

Something tells us there will a lot of this kind of speculation over the next four years.

  1. GKW says

    Trump knew he blew it in playing Romney along for sec of state, and now he’s trying to walk all the hype back using Kelley. Maybe trying to embarrass Romney to retaliate for his over the top vicious attacks. Kelley is too smart to directly cross Trump. Trump needs to stick with his original promises and ditch all the neocon warmongers sucking up and trying to keep the military/industrial complex thriving by setting Russia up as the aggressor in the world. Nobody is buying that line anymore.

    1. KenyaB says

      Russia is the aggressor and Trump is Putin’s pawn.

      1. Christina50 says

        Obama is the aggressor. You will never hear it from our MSM though.

        1. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says

          Obama is a jive talkin walkin disgrace worst President eva! Kenya here kiss him u luv him so much lol

      2. PatriotGal says

        Kenya, if anyone is Putin’s pawn it is KILLary who after her receiving $135 MILLION in her Clinton RICO Foundation and Slick Willy getting a high six-figure honorarium for one speech in Russia, SOS KILLary signed over 20% of our uranium to Russia. Now, there’s a pawn for you, Kenya, in person – KILLary the pawn of Russia!!!!.

      3. Ricky says

        And you’re the MORON asshole

        The Squirrels at looking for nuts like you.

      5. Edward Burns says


      6. Tuition + Intuition says

        Trump is much smarter than you give him credit for. US will never make progress with Russia if we jawbone at them insultingly. Trump gives ostensible respect to soothe the ego of an insecure Putin and a paranoid populace in Russia. Obama’s ego prevented him from ever making a clever approach — after he totally misjudged the evil Putin and mocked Romney for calling it correctly.

    2. Enchanted says

      Perhaps Trump thought that he could bring in those that were against him into the fold, and it didn’t work. Trump needs to surround himself with qualified people, and with people that are loyal to him. I do not see romney being loyal to anyone except himself.

      1. tatka150 says

        Romney is a dumb loser
        He wetted his pants in front of Candy Crowley and even “forgot” to slap Obozo with Bengazi bold lies
        He is a traitorous peace of shit
        Power thirsty

        1. tatka150 says

          It’s his damn fault we got Obozo for another 4 worst years

      2. Francine Ellen Carraher says

        He needs people who are loyal to the Nation, not loyal to him. Diversity from both sides needs to happen. Otherwise all you have are yes men with their own agendas.

  2. David Renaud says

    Romney is nothing but a sore looser. I would not trust him with anything.. Mr Trump better exile him…..
    He would be worse than that idiot Kerry……. He was terrible…… Pick a good well liked Republican that
    knows what he is doing……Please, Mr Trump……… You won, do not spoil it now………

    1. Sara Engelbert says

      I do not see how anyone would be worse than Kerry.

      1. Wildeagleone says

        You certainly mean as well as Clinton, I presume

        1. Sara Engelbert says

          Of course!

      2. rivahmitch says

        True… OTOH, that’s NOT a standard one would hope for;-(

        1. Sara Engelbert says

          You’re right.

      3. Alan w. says

        Remember Hillary Rodham Clinton !

        1. Sara Engelbert says

          I meant her as well. That goes without saying.

    2. Francine Ellen Carraher says

      Fact is Romney is well liked and would bring the Party back together.

      1. Milton W. Lowe says

        A back stabber once … will back stab again…Romney is a Rhino Backstabber & shouldn’t be anywhere on Trumps team…period!

      2. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says

        Romney is a traitor!!!!!!!!!

  3. PBHayes says

    I agree with Conway. Romney doesn’t have the necessary mettle to be Secretary of State at this juncture in history. The next SOS will have to repair the disastrous effect of Clinton and Kerry which is no easy task.

    1. KenyaB says

      God knows that senile Guiliani has not a clue.

      1. PatriotGal says

        Kenya, right…and Kerry does? LOL – Not in a bazillion years has Kerry anything near the quality of Mayor Giuliani.

        1. rocky49 says

          You forget the Kerry has the red (ketchup) marker for the sand 🙂

          1. Motorhead says

            I wonder if he puts it on his Weiner at the pizza party with President Obola and Nasty Hillary. Sick people they are. I pray they are punished . 82nd Airborne !

          2. kbmiller says

            Maybe Wiener’s weiner.

          3. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Stop already uncalled for.

          4. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Very childish and immature. Can’t you do anything else than offer put downs, or name calling? What would you do about improving things? How would you accomplish it without creating a worse divide in this country or getting us into WWIII?

          5. Motorhead says

            I would improve thing by arresting , trying, and convicting Weiner, Hillary, Huma, Bill, Podesta and the rest of Clinton Inc. Why are you defending criminals? Why are you defending perverts. What is childish about telling the truth. I am not as childish as you are ignorant. Do you not know that Weiner is a long known child molester? Do you not know that the Clintons are long time social friends of Weiner? It is they that introduced Huma and Weiner? Do you know about John Podesta and his Brother? Do you not know about Pizza Parties and Hot Dogs.. and what that really means? STFU…until you know something . It really pisses me off when a dumb ass interrupts when they are stupid and ignorant.

          6. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says

            Wow you are Liberally progressively ignorant Im so glad Real America crushed you progressive morons lol

          7. Motorhead says

            Why do you support Criminals? Why do you support pedophilia? Are you a pedophile? Do you not know that Hillary, Bill and Podesta are friends with the Pedophile Anthony Weiner? Do you not know that both Bill and Hillary introduced Huma to Weiner ? Do you not know that Bill and Hillary went to Epsteins Orgy Island and had sex with underage girls? DO you not know that Hillary is a Lesbian and pedophile…and Obama is Homosexual? Do you not know what the NYC police investigation revealed about Hillary, Podesta, and the ring of Pedophilia and what they mean as a PIZZA PARTY? If you don’t know you are STUPID…is you DO KNOW…You are just one of the….liberalism is a diseases. 82nd Airborne

            rockey49: Yeah “HEINZ”!!

          9. raledbetter says

            And when he ran for President he reminded us every half hour that he served in Vietnam

          10. J.B.Jacobs says

            How did I miss that? Ran it 48 times a day?

          11. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Oh my gosh, here it comes. You’re great at put downs, but I’ve yet to hear any actual plan or legitimate advice from you.

          12. rocky49 says

            Trump has the plan and the good lord willing we will once again be a strong nation. The working class will be far better off and our national debt will slowly decrease!!

          13. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says

            You get what you deserve Francine….I bet you watch the View and you luv whoopi the idiot please leave the country with her!! Heres a broom…hahahha

        2. Francine Ellen Carraher says

          Rudy is so unqualified and unfit for the position. if you want more violence to erupt in this nation, go for it, approve for Rudy. he’s the one that came up with the stop and frisk law, that was a total disaster. That’s what he wants to bring back. Talk about violating basic human rights. He’s all for that.

          1. Milton W. Lowe says

            Stop & frisk stopped more crime & took more illegal guns off the street in NYC than anything else they’ve done since…do your research…they should have stop & frisk everywhere. If you do the crime, you can do the time!

          2. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says

            Rudy was a mayor and a great prosecutor you liberal idiot what drug are you on?
            Stop & Frisk works you racist low life!!!!

          3. ABO says

            So you’re saying that getting armed criminals off the streets is a violation of human rights. Well that certainly fits right in with the rest of the liberal agenda. Oh and I’ve been wondering why it is that you demand documentation from those who disagree with you buy you refuse to back up your opinions with anything whatsoever. By the way, The definition of a bigot is one who is entirely intolerant of the beliefs and opinions of others. Seems to fit your agenda perfectly.

      2. kbmiller says

        Guiliani would be light years ahead of Lerch and “Wife of Chuckie”/ Hell LIAR y.

        1. mariethomson says

          Look, any of the three, Romney, Guiliani and Patreaus would best anything the D’s have to offer or any other R’s for State, but Romney stands head and shoulders above the other two for this particular position. I would hope all three are on the cabinet.

          1. William Gagliardi says

            Romney is a lightweight. He didn’t even confront Obama during debates. That same weakness will show up when he deals with real world leaders.

      3. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says
        1. grafra102 says


        2. Texascat says

          Sick disgusting fairy.

      4. mariethomson says

        He is far from senile. He is a elegant and brilliant man, but he has an edge that will not serve us well in dealing with the likes of Putin and the Iranian Mullahs. Romney much the better choice for that.

      5. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says

        You little low energy Democrackhead racist thug!

    2. grafra102 says

      PBHayes: I tweeted Mr. Trump and told him that Mitt Romney was a backstabber, and how he talked about him during the campaign.

      1. Francine Ellen Carraher says

        What makes you think he’s going to listen to you? You really don’t have a clue what he is, and he could care less who and what you are. He got your votes – now he’s done with you. Typical narcissist – you’re great till you give him what he wants – then he tells you to piss off. He manipulated all of you. His speeches were all based on lies, things made up or purposefully twisted to make his competition look bad. Step 1: Tell them what they want to hear. Step 2: Convince them I am the only one who can fix it. Step 3: Get what I want from them – their votes, thereby winning the election. Step 4: Laugh and crush the last ounce of hope they had left, destroy them all.

        Well guys, you get what you pay for. Problem is everyone is gonna pay for this one.

        1. Ted Crawford says

          In this case, the competition made themselves look bad! People were ready for something else. Whether it’s good “else” or bad remains to be seen. Lord Jesus, please take the wheel!!!

          1. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Ted, your absolutely correct. But Jesus already did his part long ago. It is now up to the rest of us. Be diligent regardless of who’s in charge. Hold their feet to the fire and make them work for us – not themselves or their party.

          2. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says
          3. Scrubjay says

            Jesus is STILL doing his part!

          4. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            ScrubJay, His part, according to your own beliefs, was to give his life so that all would be saved in his blood. He was, “crucified, died and buried. On the third day, he arose from the dead and ascended into Heaven to sit at the right hand of God from whence he would judge the quick and the dead, ….”

            Jesus’ work was done upon his ascension. You were given free will to accept salvation through him, and would be judged by him and by your “good” works. You will go before God, and he will ask Jesus, “do you know this man?”. Jesus will respond that he does, and present you to your Lord, the God Almighty, and your “good” works will be heralded; or Jesus will reply, “I do not know him, ” and your “bad works” will be presented as evidence to God, the Almighty.

            Jews do not believe in Hell. Instead, we believe that a person of true belief in Abrahamic Law, and given man’s free will, to do “good” works, that such a person will be welcomed into the Kingdom of Heaven at the appointed time. We believe that until that time, you will be sent to a place, often called the “Hall of Souls,” for respite, until the appointed time arrives, or your soul is needed on Earth. For those who are not known by Jesus, and have failed to do “good works,” they shall be sent back to Earth for a chance to redeem themselves. That will be repeated over and over, until the appointed time has arrived. If you still have not redeemed yourself, it is at that time that you will be thrown into the abyss. That is the final judgement.

          5. Scrubjay says

            Now I can’t read any more when you say, according to my beliefs.

            You have absolutely no idea what my beliefs are.

            I cannot abide someone so arrogant as to suggest she/he knows what my beliefs are and how I interpret them.

            It was fun playing with you, but it’s time for the adults to talk now. Off you go!

          6. albaby2 says

            I can’t believe you believers in mythology are for real. Hey, I had some alphabet soup that spelled Jesus. A Miracle!

          7. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Hey believe what you want. I am not the same religion as you, I respect your belief, please respect mine. I am spiritual, not an Atheist, as you called me.

            I do believe that Jesus lived, and that he was a great teacher, rabbi. one of our own, sent as a messenger to us, that’s what we call him. My father’s family is from the tribe of Levi, the priests of the Hebrew Nation. My great grandfather, Ephroim, for whom I was named (Phrima), was a cantor, he sang the prayers at the temple during the sabbath.

            Jesus was sent to us, and he was chosen – a human, of a human mother and father – he was not a God, nor was he Lord, he was a messenger, a great teacher, sent to the Jews, of which he was one, to tell us that the Lord wanted us to return to the Laws of Abraham, to keep the Sabbath and the Holy days, as were originally taught, and that the Almighty, Adonoi, would protect us in all things. But we were to be kind, treat each other with love and respect. We were not to judge others, but if one of us committed sin, we were to chastise the sin, not the sinner, so that the sinner could come back among us and be forgiven (Day of Atonement). But we were to turn away from false prophets and false kings, and not worship them.

            Women were to be revered, not looked down upon by any man, not even her husband. It was through the woman that the Jewish faith was passed down from one generation to the next, not the man. It was the woman of a household, who signified the start of each Sabbath by lighting the candles (liknar el Shabbot – the Sabbath Lights).

            Christians have consistently violated the Abrahamic Law, the Laws of Ashem (Yahweh). I am not blaming you personally, it is unfortunately how you have been taught over the years, and the changes and misinterpretation of the old Testament by “religious scholars” But both of our faiths are based on Abrahamic beliefs, as is Islam.

            Isaac was the second son of Abram and Sari (Abraham and Sara), and Abram’s 1st born son was Ishmael, whose mother was Hagar, Sarai’s handmaiden, given to Abram so he would have a son, since Sarai believed she was baron. When Sarai (Sara) became pregnant with her own son, Hagar and Ishmael were cast out, but Abram was told by Ashem not to worry, that they would be blessed, and that Ishmael would be the father of many nations. He indeed was, Ishmael became the father of the Arab Nations, and through his descendants, came the religion known as Islam (Muslim).

            So you see, the Jews, Christians, and Muslims (Islam) are actually all blood related and related through their religions as well. These are your brothers and sisters that your Mr. Trump, and Republican Conservatives want to cast out and/or kill. This is not a myth, this is truth.

            I have not provided links so that you may do the research for yourself, and so it is not presented to you with any preconceived bias on my part. It is not presented to you to offend, that is not my purpose. Only to perhaps aid in your understanding of why It grieves me so much to witness members of my family, you and others like you, believing in a false king that will only betray and hurt you and all of us. I am not trying to dissuade you away from your Christian beliefs, only to point out all the similarities between the 3 very closely related ideologies.

          8. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says

            Francine ru ignorant or just plain stupid? Why are you so arrogant, Ghett O, Phony and a fraudulent liar and hater…is Soros the devil paying you???

        2. William Gagliardi says

          Sounds like you are talking about Obama. You are correct, we as a nation have paid for it and will continue to pay for a long time.

          1. mrpoohead says

            Why blame the person not in charge? Stoooopid!

          2. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Nope,wasn’t talking about President Obama – talking about Mr. Trump. Not everything P.Obama did was bad. If the Repubs hadn’t sat on their butts doing nothing but refusing to act on anything placed before them, Obama would have been able to accomplish much more. Blame the repubs for the nothing they did for your problems. Blame them for the $700 mil plus of the taxpayers money trying to find something to pin on Clinton, and still failed to do or accept the conclusions. Now they want to do it again. I don’t want to see fake news, and I’m sure you don’t either. But this election has been filled with that from both sides and outside as well. Neither candidate deserves that. Truth may not be pretty, but if it is truth, that’s what should matter.

            Though I will give you it was not all them. But it wasn’t all Dems or Clinton either. You didn’t answer any of the questions I put forth to you. Please answer them, give me your thoughts so that I might respond appropriately, albeit a different view. Thanks though for your response. Promise no name calling or cursing though. That has no value to a civilized discourse. I promise the same to you.

          3. Wayne Allies says

            Stop being butt hurt, That is all your are doing is spewing your butt hurt shit. Trump is going to Make America Great Again. Look at his choices for his cabinet, he is selecting the best people for the job. So go back into your libtard hole. Hillary was a criminal, and a disaster, so get over it.

          4. Pigdog says

            You are both not worth my time or consideration. That does not make me feel hopeful at all.

          7. Pigdog says

            I think Wayne and I are both “Hopeful” Hopeful that the new AG finds enough evidence to nail Mrs. Clinton and keep her from ever appearing in public again. I don’t anticipate prison but I am hopeful that it will destroy Mrs. Clinton and keep her from showing her face in public for a long time. She is a compulsive liar and God only knows what else.

          16. Wayne Allies says

            He is already saving job in America, look at the jobs he saved for workers at Carrier. What did Obama do? Millions spent on Solendra that went bankrupt. Millions spent on Fiscar to produce a car, went bankrupt. Both at taxpayers expense. Obama was a failure.

          17. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            No sir, the repubs were the failures. They did not do any real work for 8 years, just the opposite. Yet, I hear no complaint from you about them voting themselves a $174,00 + raise (that they surely did not deserve). Or maybe you didn’t hear about that. As for your comments about Solendra and FisCar: Anytime a new business or program is started, there are always some losses and failures. Obama’s program anticipated that very real possibility and as a responsible person would do, had a contingency budget put in place for just that. But after those failures, the new program actually began to make large profits. You probably didn’t see or hear about that either. So I have given you a link, from NPR (stands for Nonpartisan Reporting). So, contrary to what you were told, Obama’s plan is actually making more money than was ever intended – an actual profit. How can that be a negative thing??In reality, the taxpayers lost nothing, but gained.

          18. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says

            The Liberal Democrackhead party has failed and now we enter PRESIDENT DONALD J TRUMP and make America great again!!!!!!!!!!!!!


          19. Wayne Allies says

   Taxpayer lost 139 million on Obama failure with Fisker Automotive get your facts straight.

          20. rdells says

            Hmm. Wonder what General Motors would have to say about the (lack of) truth in that comment! The Orange Shitgibbon IS AWESOME alright – the most awesomely slimy scumbag POS on the planet.

          21. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            “…Overall, the agency has loaned $34.2 billion to a variety of businesses, under a program designed to speed up development of clean-energy technology. Companies have defaulted on $780 million of that — a loss rate of 2.28 percent. The agency also has collected $810 million in interest payments, putting the program $30 million in the black….”

            Try reading the entire article – your don’t have your facts straight.

          22. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            On the contrary sir, I am not hurt, merely disappointed,especially in people like you. America has always been great, but Trump will change that – unfortunately, for the bad, for all of us. if you truly believe that the people of his cabinet are the best people for the job, I can only conclude that you are racist and bigoted, and believe you are superior simply because of the color of your skin – that being white, as you appear to be a white Supremacist, perhaps you belong to the KKK, definitely to the alt-right. His cabinet choices are all of those types. They are the criminals sir, not Obama nor Hillary, nor me. But you are presenting yourself as one. If that is not the case or your intent, perhaps you should look again at the facts and history of who these people are.

            FYI, I am not a liberal, but a progressive. I do believe in progress, change, and science, not going back in time to a place that was stagnant, and against change, and riddled with racism, bigotry, inequality, and injustice, by a mainstream group of people who used their religious beliefs and feelings of superiority and privilege to do evil to and upon others.

          23. Wayne Allies says

            Congress is still investigating the criminal behavior of Hillary. Donald J. Trump just saved 1000 jobs for Carrier employees. What did Obama do, he spent millions of taxpayers money on Solendra who went bankrupt. Then he spent millions of taxpayer money on Fiscar to develop a supposed electric car , which also went bankrupt. Look at the mess in the middle east Obama and Hillary left that Donald J. Trump is going to have to fix. You are one ignorant person if you think Hillary and Obama did a good job. Obama is the worst president in the history of the United States and Hillary is a criminal.

            Name one good thing that Obama has done.

          30. Francine Ellen Carraher says

   His energy loan program is actually a profitable success. Making a profit is a good thing, and creating new, innovative energy technologies is great for all of us and our planet.

   I’ll give you Obamacare (ACA) is not all good, and it does need a revamping, but not a total repeal. Any new program, especially a healthcare program, is bound to hit some bumpy areas that really just don’t work. I’m totally against penalizing or fining people who simply cannot afford to pay for health insurance (making them pay with more money they don’t already have – that’s just plain nonsense and should be pulled). Rising insurance premiums, prescription costs, etc. are definite problems, These are not good things for sure. But, and it’s a big but, Obama did not cause that or have anything to do with that. That is the lone responsibility of the insurance companies greed for way higher profit margins. Add to that the Congress, primarily the Republicans, literally doing nothing to help change that, is also greatly to blame. Let’s not forget that the States, totally refused to expand Medicaid, some even eliminating it altogether, and most of those states are Republican run. For example: The insurance industry needs a complete overhaul. Limits/caps, etc. need to be put in place; regulations and guidelines limiting for example, how high premiums can or cannot be raised, and perhaps a greater percentage of profits must be put back in research and development of new medications and treatment. I personally believe that all insurance companies should not be allowed to be a for profit organizations. They should be only non-profit, forcing them to reinvest any and all profits back into research and development. Certainly not to “shareholders”. Same for the healthcare industry. Many already are non-profit, but more should be forced into that status. Especially when it involves receiving any government funding. I know you only asked me name one good thing Obama has done. But there are actually many more. I thought I’d focus on the two I’ve already mentioned. The link above about Obamacare, lists 10 good things about Obamacare that I hope you’ll agree are indeed good. But I must stress to you that I don’t think Obamacare is perfect, far from it. It is not necessarily broken, but more “cracked” and repairable. I sincerely hope that DJT will keep what is good, and fix rather than repeal, what is not good.

            Just so you know, I am not a liberal. I am, however, a progressive. I do believe we need drastic changes to the democratic process, including the electoral college. I do believe in science and climate change, primarily because there is just too much evidence to deny it. I am “spiritual”, but not a Christian as most of DJT’s supporters appear to be. I am a Patriot, and an American, and dearly love my country and all its people, including DJT supporters. I started working at the age of 16, and continued working (even when in college) my entire adult life. I had even reached the status of working middle class. Even though I am disabled, I still work part time to earn enough to pay my Medicare premiums. I paid into SS my entire working life, even when I worked for NIH, in Bethesda, MD, along with contributing to the Federal Employees Retirement program. So I respectfully ask of you – do not call me horrible names or innuendos, just agree that we can disagree. We won’t see eye to eye on everything. Just respect those differnces. I will do the same for you. Thank you for your time.

          31. mac12sam12 says

            Hands down, Obama is the worst president in history. The past eight years the middle class has been destroyed, and there’s also record poverty. More companies have gone bankrupt than have started. We have a record low workforce because of all the bankrupt and over regulated businesses so there are no jobs. He also owns the worst GDP numbers out of all the presidents. His average is under 1 1/2% which means there’s been no growth. In comparison Reagan’s GDP averaged 6%-8%. That’s real growth. The ACA is collapsing under it’s own weight because more people are subsidized than paying customers. Watch the economy come back under Trump. We need a strong Capitalist in the WH. Have a good day. I don’t always consider those who disagree with me to be my enemy. 😎

            Women could lose health insurance protections under new administration

            NOVEMBER 30, 2016

            Under the new administration, women could lose health insurance protections established under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) (PL 111-148) and face higher costs for care, Kaiser Health News/NPR’s “Shots” reports (Andrews, “Shots,” Kaiser Health News/NPR, 11/29).

            President-elect Donald Trump during his campaign said he would repeal the ACA (Women’s Health Policy Report, 11/14). Further, Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), Trump’s pick for Health and Human Services secretary, has in the past introduced legislation to repeal the law.

            Moreover, KHN/”Shots” reports that the new administration could circumvent ACA policies by choosing not to enforce them or by writing new rules.

            Benefits at risk

            An ACA repeal could compromise the guarantee of maternity care coverage on the individual insurance market, KHN/”Shots” reports.

            Under the ACA, maternity care is classified as one of 10 essential health benefits, meaning it must be covered. Prior to the law’s implementation, it was uncommon for individual plans to cover prenatal care and delivery. According to an analysis by the National Women’s Law Center, only 13 percent of individual market plans available to a 30-year-old woman living in a state capital offered maternity care in 2009, the year before Congress passed the ACA. Without such coverage, women could face high costs for maternal care, KHN/”Shots” reports: A 2010 study found that payment for a vaginal birth totaled more than $18,000.

            In addition, preventive health services for women could also be at risk under the new administration. The ACA requires preventive services recommended by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force to be covered without copayments or deductibles. Such services include screening for breast and cervical cancer and testing for the BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 genetic mutations, which increase a woman’s chance of developing breast cancer.

            Further, coverage of preventive services endorsed by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), including contraceptive coverage, could be endangered without directly changing or repealing the ACA. In 2011, the then-Institute of Medicine proposed a list of eight preventive services that it said insurers should cover without cost sharing. HRSA later adopted the list, which also includes requirements to cover annual well-woman visits; breast feeding support, counseling and supplies; counseling and screening for sexually transmitted infections; counseling and screening for domestic violence; and gestational diabetes screening.

            According to KHN/”Shots,” repealing or revising the ACA also could allow insurers to again charge women higher rates than men. According to the National Women’s Law Center, 60 percent of the best-selling individual plans in 2009 charged a 40-year-old nonsmoking woman more than her male counterpart, even in plans that did not cover maternity care. The ACA eliminated this disparity by barring insurers from charging women more than men for the same services.


            Gretchen Borchelt, vice president for reproductive rights and health at the National Women’s Law Center, said, “Our concern is going back to a world where insurance companies are writing their own rules again, and returning women to those bad old days in health care and losing all the progress we’ve made.”

            Separately, Dania Palanker, an assistant research professor at Georgetown University’s Center on Health Insurance Reforms, expressed concerns about how the new administration could substantively cut back coverage without changing or repealing the ACA directly. “A lot of the pieces of the preventive services benefits that clarify and make the coverage real and strong have been through (federal officials’) guidance, and there is fear that could be changed,” she said (“Shots,” Kaiser Health News/NPR, 11/29).

            You talkin about the disgraceful lying phony Obama ..Obama is not cool.
            He will go down in history as the worst President eva….faile obamacare, trillions in debt, weaken Americas power worldwide, disrespected our Nation, police, military..and much much more!!!.Obama doesn’t even salute our Military hes a fool!!!! Im so happy he is gone PRESIDENT TRUMP is the man and he will make America Great again whether you Francine like it or not you lost and America won!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          73. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            No sir, you have been fooled by your false king and prophet, Trump. Obama is a good man, and your brother. You have simply failed to see the truth because you have been blinded by the lies given you by Trump. Such is the case of someone who has felt so betrayed and hurt, and are desperate to believe that anyone cares at all, that they are blindly manipulated by false prophets and kings. Trump is one of them. Your own bible tells you to beware of those like him.

          74. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says

            Obama is a Moron, low energy, a traitor a divider in chief, hates Real America…Obama is a disgrace like you! The bible tells us of false prophets like Obama and Crooked lying Hillary who both were exposed as frauds!!!!!!!!!! PRESIDENT TRUMP & REAL AMERICA IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          We have paid with the last eight years! I want you to know that he was voted in because he had all it takes to revise and appoint the proper team to assist. Your comment is just anger over the loss of the election. We did all we could with your choices and still stayed steadfast and loyal to the president try doing the same for it’s not all about you my friend, it’s about we the people! So help me God

          1. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            I never said it was about me or you. It is about us, all of us. I wish he did have the skill, which he does not, to fix all the issues. Bringing in racists to his group, will just exacerbate the problems. No one is perfect especially politicians. But neither am I or you. For me, it’s not about who’s party I belong to or who’s party won. I have never voted a straight party ticket, probably never will. Two of my very best friends are Republicans, and one of them voted for Trump. Neither of them (my friends) are racist or bigots or would ever think about abusing women sexually or otherwise. Sure, Trump is an outsider. Yes this country definitely needs a change, I’m all for that. But Trump is not a good man, and you will never convince me that he is good for this country. I hope he proves me wrong. I doubt that he will. As far as God goes, I respect your right to believe in whatever religion you want to. I want the same respect as well. Trump is not a “Godly” man. He wants to force me to believe as he does,but I won’t. If there is a God, I hope that he or she or it is watching and will intervene for all of us. To help us get through these trying times. As for you paying for the last 8 years. please enlighten me. Did you lose your job? Did you lose everything you owned because of outrageous health insurance costs and medical costs? Do you really think only you and people you know were affected? Do you think Congress refusing to do anything because they had such a deep seated hatred for Obama for no other reason than he was black (he is also part white) was the best for this country? Do they not own a good deal of blame for what happened to you? Do you really think building a wall is going to change things for the better? That is not what this country is about, and never has been. That is what I am fighting for. I would hope that is part of what you want as well.

          2. celiayounger says

            ???? THANK YOU. you said it RIGHT. agree with you 100%. Mr. Obama has done everything he could for the good of all of us (even with the racist congress.. who refuse and stopped him everytime he tried to do some good for all of us. TO ME, MR. OBAMA HAD BEEN THE BEST PRESIDENT IN THE LAST 60 OR 70 YEARS. and some of you who think otherwise because you are republicans and you think the worse of him, He HAS DONE MORE FOR YOU and the people THAN ANY OTHER PRESIDENT. GOD BLESS AMERICA AND MR. OBAMA.

          7. Gary D Flatt says

            Obama is low IQ fool, and a Marxist jihadists, who TRIED to destroy America, but was unable because our core values based on the Constution were too strong. Under President Trump OUR America will snap back so fast that all of you haters better stand back.

          8. Motorhead says

            President Obola is a Homosexual, Kenyan, and Muslim in that order..

          9. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            You are obviously not a graphic designer, or you would discover upon closer examination, that the photo posted as proof, is a fake, and badly PhotoShopped to boot. You are clinging to fake news and misinformation , that has repeatedly been debunked, and accepted as fake, even by your own Trump, who started the birther question to begin with.

            Obama is was not born in Kenya, as you are obviously implying, but is in fact, his ancestors were of very diverse ethnicity, including English, Dutch, Irish,German (like Trump), African, just to name a few. Here’s a link that gives in pretty complete detail, Obama’s ancestry & ethnicity.

            You claim Obama is Muslim. That too has been debunked repeatedly. But he does know all about Islam & Muslim, since his father was indeed a Muslim, as well as his stepfather.

            So do us all a favor – get off your high horse that you developed by believing fake news and articles – and try to answer this question: Have you ever had a DNA test that would prove you are only one race? Bet you didn’t. I bet if you do, you will find out like the rest of us and like President Obama has joked even about himself, that you are in fact a “mutt” – but, an American mutt, something this America of ours was built on.

          10. Motorhead says

            Was it fake news that” Hillary would win the Election” yes t was !..You are just another leftist moron. Go away with your BS…IDIOT! 82nd Airborne…ps YOU LOST STUPID! 82nd Airborne

          11. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            No, Obama is not low IQ as you state, nor is he a Marxist or jihadist. He didn’t try to destroy America, nor did he go against the core values of the Constitution, which are not based on any religion. Here’s the proof.

            Because I do not agree with your point of view – or with Trumps – does not mean that I do not love MY COUNTRY, or hate those with opposing views. Sad to say, you have placed your trust in a man that will let you down consistently, just as he already has done. I too am a Patriot, an American. I hope that your T will do as he promised, but doubt that he will. If he proves me wrong, and that what he plans will be good for our country, then so be it. But I am extremely skeptical, as we all should be.

            Thank God for him playin me! I’ll be played for a real long time. God is good and only Jesus saves. He don’t play

            Determination 2 remain victimized by these BS artists really ain’t all that smart, and won’t save U or anyone else from perdition, ‘cuz salvation is a given.

            So I also thank Jesus, for pointing that out.

          24. albaby2 says

            You just keep on hoping and praying if you think that helps. I gave up on believing in God right after I found out that Santa Claus and the Easter bunny weren’t real either.

          25. Dale says

            I was kinda upset about the Easter bunny and santa ? Claus myself. Then I realized who told me about them and understood what childhood fables are. Then I found out the real truth and my faith carried me to the truth! If it weren’t real and truth I wouldn’t say so. I hope you find the truth as well. So help me God

          26. Artemis says

            Go Dale!!!

          27. Artemis says

            Sounds like the good ‘ol Atheist/Communist mentality…I feel sorry for you, it’s your choice, either God or a Disciple of Satan, that’s the choice we all have!

          28. albaby2 says

            Nope. Satan is one of the threats religion uses to keep people terrifed and under its control. Read Thomas Paines The Age of Reason. The first ten pages explain my position. Satan won’t eat your children if you do. I believe in the POSSIBILITY of a supreme being but because I don’t share your beliefs doesn’t make me an atheist.

          29. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            I think Jimmy is trying to play both ends against the middle. It doesn’t matter. I know your heart, and so does the I am. Blessings.

          30. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Sorry, but not really sure what you’re trying to say here. Please explain.

          31. johnmorrison says


          32. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            I believe that you believe that is true. I simply don’t share that view. I was raised to ask questions, not to accept in blind faith. I was a Christian by choice for a while. Baptized and everything. I had accepted Christ as my personal Savior. But when I began to find contradictions in the Bible, and dared to ask how that could be, I was reviled by the church. Simply because I asked a question, for an explanation and real clarification of contradictions within the book that I was supposed to be learning from. I have tried several times to go back to the church, only to be reviled over and over again when I ask a question. Can you explain to me why my question won’t or can’t be answered?

          33. Dale says

            The bible is not a kind of book that just can be explained straight out. I can only apologize that when you were truly searching and trying to understand that you were treated like that! It happens allot. It even happened to our savior himself. That’s a big reason that faith is so important in acceptance of Christ. You sound so very intelligent and I can only hope that you find a way back to home. Ttyl8r I pray. P.s. I still have a lot of those questions myself. I have been shown that he is for real and the word is true

          34. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Oh, I do believe Jesus existed, but that he was human, of human parents, and chosen by Adonoi (the Almighty, the I am), to bring the people of Abraham, the Jews, back to the Laws of Abraham, not for the gentile (of whom he was not a member). He was a rabbi (which means “teacher”), and sent to the Jews to guide them back into the fold. Jesus welcomed questions, in fact encouraged them, because that was exactly what Jews always did to greater understand the Laws and to keep those laws in all things they did. When Joseph and Mary found him at the temple, and asked what he was doing there, he responded, “…I am doing the Lords work,,,” he did not say his Father’s work, a misnomer. Jews did not call the Almighty “Father”, he was always referred to as “Lord, Almighty, Ashem, Adonoi, the I am”. The temple was where Jews went, not just to pray, but more than that – to participate in the great debates that took place by the rabbis “teachers of the Laws”. This is to explain why I asked, and continue to ask questions, and was encouraged to not accept simply because someone tells you “because it is so.”

          35. Dale says

            You just said it in your own comment Francine. The Jews called the father Lord almighty. Jesus replied I’m doing the Lord’s work. I’m not going by all that I have read because I’m not that well educated. I’m telling you from what I have been through and have had revealed to me. Please for your sake and all those around you know that his word is indeed truth. You need not be a biblical scholar to have faith to believe. So help me God

          36. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Dale, I truly believe that you believe what you have been taught. One’s level of education has nothing to do with what’s in one’s heart. Your’s is a good heart, I can tell that by your comments. The Almighty would surely be pleased with you come Judgement day. I would stand by your side as witness for you, & when Adonoi asks if I know you, I would proudly say yes, and offer up evidence of your acts, which are good.

            It is not your education, or your riches that Adonoi judges you, the poorest of the poor, and the richest of the rich, have failed when it comes to their “acts.” Your’s will not fail you, I promise you that. We have the same God, but view him from different perspectives. I am not a biblical scholar, far from it. I just try to do what I know in my heart is the right thing to do. I do not always succeed, I know I have made mistakes in my life, have made bad decisions. There is no one on this Earth, past, present or future, who beats me up more than I do myself. I pray for forgiveness, & he smiles and tells me lovingly, “…go, try again…”, as many times as I must until I get it right. When I do, I will know,because he will tell me then, “…go rest for awhile.. be at peace and sleep…until it is time to call you home.”

            I am going to give you a few links to some sites, that may help you to understand the Almighty from my perspective. I found it to be quite enlightening. If there is anything that you do not understand, please do not hesitate to ask me. I will explain as best I can.


          37. Dale says

            Francine, thank you for making my heart and soul smile! I’ll see you there when the time comes. God bless you and have a merry merry Christmas. So help me God

          38. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Bless you too, dear man, and have a joyous Holiday Season. Please do keep in touch.

          39. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            I’m sorry Dale, but I am still not convinced, especially since “St. Paul” did what the Almighty through his messenger, Jesus, told him not to do. Really, I do appreciate your faith in your God. We all need something to believe in, that is true. I just don’t believe in the same God as you.

          40. Dale says

            You have faith and knowledge. Just remember the name of Jesus Christ and all will be fine. Take care

          41. albaby2 says

            Oh gawd. Here comes the race card again. That all you got? BTW, Obama dismissed his white heritage. Wasn’t that racist?

          42. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Prove that one to me, please.I have never heard him say that. Is there a video of him saying that? Can you provide me with a link? I’m serious, provide me with a link to an actual video of him saying that.

          43. albaby2 says

            Have you ever heard him mention his white heritage in a positive manner? Did he write a book called dreams from my mother or dreams from my grandparents. I’m not going to do your work for you. Have one of your employees look it up.

          44. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            As I thought, you cannot produce any proof, and you won’t even try. Afraid of being rebuffed? Oddly enough, of the over 10,000+ comments you have posted to this site, not a single one has been accompanied by any evidence to support what you post. Not once, even when requested from you, to you provide a link, or anything else. You do respond frequently with vulgarity, insults, name calling and more accusations that you refuse to back up with evidence.

            Actually the book was called “Dreams From My Father”, well received and rated very highly. Written before he was even thinking about running for President, long before. I bet you didn’t even read it, did you? I think you don’t know how to research anything that would justify your comments. SMH

          45. albaby2 says

            It would be a waste of time to provide you with links as you wouldn’t read them. Now where are your fact based evidence links. His book was well received by who? Liberals? No I didn’t read it. I don’t waste my time of fiction written by politicians.

          46. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Okay, that’s fair. So I won’t waste my time with fiction that people like you think is fact.

          47. albaby2 says

            So you admit you have preconcieved opinions and are not open to others opinions, even when you are presented with facts. Thanks for clarifying that.

          48. donS2 says

            Go back to bed Hillary, the reason Congress fought him, what little they actually did, is because his progressive policies are bad for the Country.

          49. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            I respectfully disagree. In fact, history has shown that when it comes to the economy and jobs, Vote Democratic. The economy has consistently been much better for the Country and its people under Democratic governments than under Republican controlled Government. you cannot argue with the math, and historically that math is backed with actual historical facts.

          50. Artemis says

            He was hated, despised, or whatever you choose to call it, but Democrats they are NOT! It is a tragedy that some Americans simply don’t know the difference between Democrats and Communists. What we have been dealing with for the past year are Communists, proof of that is the fact that the “American Communist Party”, or whatever it chooses to call itself came out as a sponsor for Hillary’s Election. So, that being said, educate yourself! I strongly suggest that you have some serious discussions with someone that lived under Communist Rule. I have done that myself, and it ain’t pretty! The “feelings” toward Obama don’t have anything yo do with SKIN COLOR, but because of his treasonous policies, PERIOD….you simply Don’t get it!

          51. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            I beg to differ with you. Here is a link, that I think you would approve of as to it’s source, that pretty much backs up my feelings. Please do keep in mind that the surveys represented in the article are for people who voted, not the total populations of the country or those who simply registered to vote and then didn’t.

            As to the American Communist Party, endorsing HRC, sorry but NO they did not, nor would they have endorsed any candidate that was not their own party. BTW, nor are they in any way, shape, or form to be confused with the KKK. The ACP’s beliefs and policies, and mission, more closely resemble those of a Democratic Socialistic party.

            Contrary to your statement and alleged belief, Obama committed no act of treason. That view is only perpetuated by Trump and his personal view/opinion. Obama violated no law that indicates any act of treason. Congress on the other hand….

          52. Artemis says

            Lady…you still don’t get it, do you? Aiding and abetting the enemy in time of war is TREASON, PERIOD. He also had full knowledge that Hillary was using an unauthorized server,and that passing any one of many types of Classified information (readily available to our enemies),
            is illegal, and knowingly doing so makes it TREASON, and having worked on Government Contracts for many years, I can safely state that you’re talking over your head!!!!

          53. Artemis says

            The American Communist Party DID Endorse Hillary Clinton, And it Was even on the news, just a few weeks ago!

          54. Kol says

            The way you constantly blither like an idiot about “Communists” really makes you look foolish. I have extended family in Russia and I’ve lived there a few times for extended periods just to be close to certain ones who are very special. One thing I get a real kick out of is that Russia’s Communist Party nowadays is so small that it makes up barely One Percent (1%) of the total votes in Russia’s national elections… and, unlike the U.S., 85% of Russians VOTE! And one really interesting thing these days, which I’ve seen when I’ve been there, is that their Communist Party proudly boasts that today it is Russia’s “republican political faction” Isn’t that neat!!

          55. donS2 says

            There is a large difference between a liberal democrat and a progressive. The first real progressive we have as President was Mr. Obama and he didn’t do the Country very well. I am really surprised the leftists lost though, you had the Blacks, the Gays, the Illegals (well they aren’t suppose to vote) the women (except for the 51% that you lost) the only ones you didn’t get were the White working class and your Party decided 8 years ago that you did not need them.

          56. Mark Lahti says

            No use what so ever in trying to argue any point with a liberal progressive. They are incapable of seeing anything that doesn’t match their socialist perspective. It is totally beyond their mental capacity to digest anything they don’t agree with. My recommendation is to ignore them. They will eventually just go away. Go away mad but go away they will.

          57. donS2 says

            You are right.

          58. Robin Loveless says

            Your question makes no sense. Can you try to rephrase that for me. Thank you.

          62. albaby2 says

            It would fall on blind eyes..

            Francine, from what I’ve heard and read on various sites, Pres-Elect Trump knew that Kellyanne was going public with her disapproval of Gov. Romney (perhaps he was not aware of how ‘strongly” she would make her objections known) In my generation (I am 88) the word rogue referred to a person who worked apart from the rest, tricky or mischievous– even dishonest. This word does not apply to Kellyanne. She told the Pres-Elect what she planned to do. Only they know what they discussed. I think perhaps in a subtle way you referred to Congress as being racist. I hate to think our “do-nothing Congress” hated Obama because he is black, rather they hated his policies – as do I. Pres. Obama’s reign has been one of civil unrest, lawlessness, arrogance. His administration is guilty of inciting racism. He has set race relations back (which were on the upswing before his election) to the lowest level ever. Indeed, I, too trust that my Pres-Elect, Trump, proves himself to be the forthright, capable leader he has shown himself to be thus far. So far as judging the ‘goodness” of the Pres.-Elect, only God can judge the heart. Yes, Francine, there is a God.

            Wow, you “knocked that one out of the Park!

          65. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            No, actually she kept it in the park, and she and I had a wonderful conversation. A dear person, a gentle soul, and has been gratefully given my enduring respect. She and I have different persectives, and don’t agree on everything. But we “played” very nicely together, and I very much hope to do the same with her again very, very soon. She is someone I would definitely introduce as my dear friend. You on the other hand need a bit more work. You really should take a cue from Luisa, on the process of participating in “civilized discourse” with those who don’t necessarily see things eye to eye, but walk away feeling enriched by the experience.

          66. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            I’m sure you did read those things. I did also, but I also heard otherwise, and that DJT was “…furious…” about what she did. I don’t like DJT, don’t trust him didn’t vote for him. But what she did was just so wrong on so many levels, and only made him look foolish, something even I wouldn’t do if I worked for him. I have been an executive assistant, for many years, to important people in the organizations I worked for. Even when I didn’t agree with their decisions or policies, I never would have disrespected them so in such a public way. I would have, and in fact did, discuss my concerns in a very private conversation with my employer. I never would have dreamed to do what she did.

            I have met DJT, and truly believe he is not what he tries to convince all of us that he is. I personally witnessed his racist and bigoted beliefs, I personally witnessed his abuse towards an employee, a Mexican woman, legally in this county, over a lost piece of chocolate, totally uncalled for. She lost everything – her home, her self-respect, her safety. Over a little tiny piece of candy – worth nothing in comparison to her, a human being, a kind, decent, hard working human being, and you’d be pleased to know, a “good, and Godly woman.” He is not what you think, truly. He is evil, and will not keep his promised to any of us. He is unfit for the job of President. That is not just my opinion for of over 1/2 the people of this Nation feel the same way. I hope that we are proven wrong, but I doubt that will happen. He is already proving us correct with his choices for his cabinet. I truly believe our Country is doomed.

            But, I want you to know I do believe in something greater than myself, you could even call that “God.” I just don’t believe in the same “God” as you do. I believe in a God that is kind and loving and forgiving, and willing to be asked any questions I might ask, who is willing to discuss my concerns. My god does answer my questions, and allows me to freely ponder his/her answers and draw my own conclusions. My God allow me to make mistakes, and gives me second, and third and more chances to try again to get things right. and smiles when I succeed, and encourages me to keep trying when I don’t get it quite right, and always loves me and comforts me and has never reviled me as the so called church has. My God lis always there for me because I keep trying to get it right. That is all I will ever need.

          67. Luisa Matta says

            Daniel Patrick Moynihan, the late “chirpy” Irish NY Senator sad something that went like this: “you are entitled to your own opinions, you are not entitled to your own facts”…from reading your response to me comment, you have some facts to which you are entitled. Time alone will prove and/or disprove the kind of leader and person our PEPOTUS will be. I based my opinions on the Kellyanne’s actions on 2 instances of how I acted after having discussed with my boss how I thought the potential applicants he was considering to be either my assistant and/or someone to join us in an open slot on staff were not qualified for the posts. I thought my critique of these applicants include all those who would be affected by their choice. He had his ‘say’ ending with: “if you insist”. In situations that have far-reaching results that could and do affect whole departments, there is need of openness. I did not lose my job…the new finalist hirees proved themselves to be excellent. Whew!
            Referring back to your comments on Gov. Romney. I perceive him to be a gentleman in his mannerisms. Someone just this evening made the comparison of Jim “Mad Dog Mattis to Gov. “lap dog Romney. (not meant to contribute to the rhetoric of the day). The precedent was made when a Republican Senator described a Democratic Senator as “The Truman administration’s ‘a whimpering lap dog” If Romney is the nominee and approved, I will wait for him to prove himself to the trust invested in him. Check with me in June 2017

            That I will. We both should hold all their feet to the fire, so to put it and make sure they do as the people expect, not any party they are “loyal” to. They are supposed to work for us, not themselves, and certainly not any party.

            None of us are perfect, we all hold misconceptions that later prove to be inaccurate. Though they seem true on paper, and I think we both know through each of our own personal experience, that a 15 minute in person interview is so not enough time to gain any real insight of the appropriateness of a person to a particular job (or appointment in t

            Thankfully for you, you didn’t lose your job, and your preconceived notions were just that – preconceived. Instead the applicant, was appointed and proved to be a most valuable addition to your staff.

            For me, not so much. I didn’t lose my job, not until a few years later (long story – organization I was working for shut down and everyone lost their jobs), but I had recommended a particular individual I felt “fit the bill” perfectly, she was hired, and turned out to be the worst possible person for the position – a total nightmare for us all.

            The director of our division came into my office one morning, closed the door, sat down and said, “I need your help regarding so and so. Since you know the job better than anyone in this office, I am relying on you to fix this….” I didn’t get fired, but I had to straighten out the mess this person continuously created. I took over 3/4 of her responsibilities, without a pay increase, and her hours were cut to part time. Not fun, but I took on the task and made it all work. Like you, a “whew” was definitely in order when all was said and done.

            In a way, I feel sort of sorry for them all. They made promises to do A, B, C, etc. With both of us on board to make sure they do, and both of us willing to “call them out” when they don’t, they’ve got one heck of a lot of work to do, and it won’t be as easy as they thought.

            Well, dear Luisa, we have a tough battle ahead of us, but maybe when the smoke clears, we will have a leader(s) that do as all the people want and need, and if they don’t, well together we can tell them, as T would put it “… YOUR FIRED…”

            Don’t wait until June 2017 to contact me. This conversation has been just delightful. Thank you so much for the “civilized discourse” I was able to have with you. So very much appreciated. Please do keep in touch.

            Well Spoken!

          70. J.B.Jacobs says

            I don’t understand why some people think Obama did such a good job and Trump wont. Obama was making fun of Trump for saying he was going to bring back jobs and Obama said the jobs were gone and there was no way they would be coming back. Look at Carrier Air Conditioning, They were moving to Mexico and 1400 people were going to lose their jobs. Pence said Trump picked up the phone and called the Carrier CEO and told him about lowering taxes and doing away with a lot of the regulations that was causing them to move from the USA and guess what, Carrier says 1100 jobs are staying here in this country. Trump did this even before he has taken the oath of office. Obama couldn’t do with 8 years in office. If it worked with Carrier, it will work with other company’s also. We need to give Trump the chance and support he needs to get the things done that he wants to do.

            I didn’t say I don’t know there is a God,I said I don’t believe in your God. Big difference. You listen to what others have to say to understand and recognize the differences, not to validate that one opinion is right or wrong. That conclusion could go in either direction. We won’t know for sure until then. Heck, we could both be wrong and discover that we were the result of some far away alien experiment. It isn’t fact – it is unknown. For now, what it is are simply opposing views. You have yours – I have mine. Where religion is involved, I respect those differences, & welcome opposing views, it provides a different perspective. But, I don’t try to force with threats or violence, my religion or beliefs onto others. Why is that so difficult for you to understand?

            Looked you up on Facebook. Very interesting. You claim to be from Houston TX, but you haven’t lived in the US for some time. In fact, you say you live in Oxford, UK. Your interest seems to be looking at seductive pictures of women, of whom you list as your friends, that’s all the friends you list. Went to Marion High School in Belaire TX, although you were’t there for very long, nor did you graduate from there. You fail to mention you were an immigrant, Latino (Mexican or Cuban possibly). So who are you really, not very well educated, sorry about that, everyone deserves a good education. If you became a citizen when would that have been? You live in UK, did you even vote in this election? You don’t appear to be very credible.

            Not all are, but unfortunately many already were. His campaign and his words gave them permission to express their true feelings. I understand their disappointment in our government. I understand their feelings of abandonment. I understand their need to feel they are part of this Nation and that they too deserve to be heard.

            But your own words, and comments to even just me, to exclude me from being a True American, or suggest that slapping me or inflicting some sort of violence upon me, won’t change my opinion of you or get me to hear what your real issues are.

            Do you really believe that Traditional Real Americans are only white, and that they only believe In Jesus? Do you believe that only your kind of person should be entitled to a presence in this Nation? Because if you do, that is the very definition of being racist and bigoted.

            I am not either a bigot or a racist, and by the way, I’m not a Liberal lunatic (as so many Trump supporters like to call me). I believe that we were created equally with the same prospects for a successful life as everyone else. No one is born a racist or a bigot, or feeling that white is better than black or vise versa, or that one religion is better than another. That has to be taught, very carefully taught.

          82. bill sexton says

            Francine, you said a mouth full and a lot of it is just ok. But, honestly Francine, you lost me the minute you said congress refused to do anything (what does anything mean) because they (Who exactly are they, many are democrats) had such a deep seated hatred for Obama (that cannot be proved and is really bonkers) for no other reason than he was black (OMG Francine your a racist too?) Come on, Because he is BLACK? You just lost my respect. Now i know you really are talking out of pure jealously because your girl Hillary lost. Get over it Francine, Trump won and he IS now your president for the next 4 and maybe 8 years. Please, your smart, stop speaking from your loss of the presidency, Senate, House, and state governments and use some common sense. Honestly, it is not the end of the world.

          83. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Well, since the Republicans run the House, and they are the members of Congress who must put forth consideration of proposals by the President, before the Senate can even consider said proposals, and chose instead to refuse to let anything Obama put forth progress, and since there were not sufficient democrats in the House to force the Republican to let the measures proceed, then I must be talking about the Republicans, of whom Paul Ryan, the House speaker is one.

            No sir, I am not a racist. Oh my, if I was one, I would be a racist against myself, since I am of a very mixed race myself. That would be awkward wouldn’t it.

            Nor am I “jealous” – that in itself is the funniest thing I’ve read all day – because a disgusting person like Trump won. Hopefully it won’t be the end of the world, but if things remain as they are, and Trump does what he wants to do, then yes, it will very likely lead to WWIII, and the end for us all.

            Look, Hillary wasn’t my first choice either. Honestly, I was hoping for Bernie. But never Trump. He will fail, and likely be impeached, or assassinated – not that I wish that on anybody – before he even completes his first term. I don’t believe there will be a second term. Not with the mid-term elections coming in just 2 years. He has already broken promises to his base when he promised to drain the swamp. Do you not see that he is not draining the swamp, but adding his own personal sewage into it? He promised to get rid of lobbyists, yet that is exactly who is in his cabinet appointments.

            I’m not totally against his “idea” though. Our Nation’s infrastructure sucks!! It’s literally crumbling. I truly believe that that project cannot be dismissed any longer. And talk about that project’s ability to increase employment, expand jobs, and reduce unemployment – that would be unbelievably amazing.

            But I ask this: Where is the money for the project and all those jobs going to come from? How are we going to pay for it? How is the Government going to come up with the revenue to cover the cost? Obviously taxes are going to increased substantially, but can the American people absorb that cost? I don’t think so.

            Sure, we could charge excise taxes and other fees on products coming into the country from other Nations, right. But Trump wants to “wall” us in, isolate us from the rest of the globe (and like it or not we live in a globalized world both economically and politically) and that will affect our success or failure as a Nation.

            Do you think for one second that if we were attacked, any of our current allies would rush to our aid, when we abandoned them in the first place? I seriously doubt it, at least not without a pretty serious cost to us.

          84. bill sexton says

            Hello again Francine. Just a comment about racism. You mentioned that you could not be racist because you have mixed blood in your veins. I worked as a principle in the inner city for many years. Most of my staff were African American. A lot of my time was spent listening to women bickering about racial issues. For instance, one lady came into my office actually crying and obviously very upset. The reason floored me. She stated that another teacher, also African American, had said, “your blacker than I am, so that makes you less and me more”. The offended teacher wanted me to fire the other teacher for insulting her. She called the other teacher a “racist”.I reminded her that her pastor could probably help her more than I could. Hum. Blacks can’t be racist? I believe anyone can have racist views. Just because you have mixed blood does not make you immune to stupidity.

          85. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            I understand what you’re saying. I am not, I assure you, a racist or a bigot. It would truly feel very awkward for me to try to do that. What happened between those two teachers is something I have seen too many times, and to this day I cannot understand why so many act that way. To me it is completely illogical.

            My family, my friends comprise such a wonderful variety of races, cultures, intellects, and religious backgrounds and beliefs. I have always felt truly fortunate to have them all as a part of my life.

            Maybe with all the horrible things going on in the world, witnessing what people are doing to other people, this taking of sides, one against the other, to me that is stupid. Perhaps I am naive. Because I believe we are one family, one race, and not so different to each other as many seem to think or feel.

            What you did in that situation I think was probably for the best. Neither should have been fired, it would not have resolved their underlying issues. Perhaps her pastor could help, perhaps not. Perhaps putting them in a situation where they would have no one else to depend on but each other would have helped more. But given the position you were in, I think you did just the right thing.

            No one, even of mixed blood, is immune to stupidity. That is why I try to fight it every step of the way. Maybe as an example, I might help them build up those anti-stupidity anti-bodies they need to fight against it too.

          86. bill sexton says

            Francine, I have lived a long time. I grew up poor. Father, 6th grade education, cant read or write, mother poor farm girl whose father had 3rd grade education. No running water in our house and a 55 gallon metal drum with make shift vent for smoke out of the house.
            over my life I have looked as you do about different races. How I wish all people saw the world as you and I do. No color. No differences. just people trying to survive. Unfortunately, that is not the way the world is. It does not appear that it will change in the near future. In fact, I see the separation between races getting further apart. Blacks have different music and customs that are widening from whites. Both groups live in different areas and have become more separated rather than blending in. As a teacher, I heard their thoughts, whites and blacks. I learned what most are being taught from an early age that reinforces the division of two peoples.
            Trump being elected is further proof to me that our two peoples are separating more and more. Obama had a perfect chance to change the direction our nation is heading. He blew it. We are a more divided nation now than before he was elected. That is sorely unfortunate.
            I have chickens in my back yard. They are different looking. It is amazing how they mimic American society. My 40 day old chickens are all white, fat, and slow. The Philippine native chickens are multi colored, smaller, and fast. Birds of a feather flock together.
            In prison, in school, in sports, in religion, and just about every where else Hispanics stay with their kind, blacks with their kind, and whites stay with their kind. Maybe It is never going to change no matter how much we may want it to.
            I have come to believe we need to let nature take its course and let people do what they will. If we need separate everything, then so be it. Let society find its own level and help each group rise individually without pushing against nature.
            Liberal vs conservative, black vs white, Christian vs muslim. Attempts should be made to understand each side and while allowing nature to function as intended.
            I don’t really know what the answer is, but we had better figure it out soon because America is dividing into groups. History teaches us once a country splinters into groups it can no longer live in total peace.
            Trump was not elected because of who he is or what he did. He was elected because as a nation we are dividing and one side voted against the other side.
            Civil war is coming and in some ways it is already here. It won’t be government against the people. It will be groups against groups. Fighting in the streets such as blacks shooting white cops. Whites walking into a black church and gunning down innocent people. And hate grows and expands with out any reason.
            I am more hopeful today because Hillary has been stopped, not because Trump has been elected. I do not want to see more Muslims come into this country. I do not want our national identity to be watered down. It just causes bigger groups of division. People will flock to their own kind. Hillary and the Democrats want a more blended populace and cannot see that birds of a feather (people) are separating and flocking together. Trump will stop populism, and in the process, just maybe, give America another 50 years of relative peace. Many Blacks have stated they as a people cannot live with whites. After millions of dollars have been spent by the government in an attempt to give them a chance to become middle class citizens, they still don’t get it.
            So maybe we should give Trump a chance. What the hell do we have to lose?

          87. Artemis says

            Simply put, Obama makes Mr. Trump look like a Saint by comparison!

          88. J.B.Jacobs says

            I have heard that saying “that is not what this country is all about” until I’m sick of it. That is no excuse for all the illegals coming into this country with their crime and drugs. What this country is about is helping the American people first, not last. Building a wall, or fence, is not only something that must be done, it should have been done years ago. The Border patrol needs to be reinforced with enough manpower and equipment to keep out all illegals. No one should be allowed to come to this country, except legally. That’s what this country is all about.

          89. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            I agree with you, immigrants should be here legally. But building a wall is not going to stop that, and is way to costly to Americans. Now if Mr. Trump wants to pay for it in its entirety, maybe.

            If you think what we already have is not working, look up the statistics. Right now the % of illegals being prosecuted for non-violent Federal crimes, (illegals immigrants) is at 54%. For violent criminal charges, it is actually down considerably, so the vetting process, which is actually one of the most stringent policies in the world, is indeed working.

            The new problems that we are facing regarding immigration actually isn’t coming from Mexico, as most people think and Trump has professed, but from Central America, immigrants seeking asylum, and unaccompanied children.

            I do feel we need more border patrol officers in place to help protect the borders. and for those who do vetting of immigrants.

            Please try to remember, all the Founding Fathers who came to this country, and decided to create a new country, were themselves immigrants. The people that followed, also immigrants. This wonderful Nation were built and became strong because of these immigrants.

            There is a beautiful poem, “Colossus”, also know as the Statue of Liberty Poem, that for a very long time, every immigrant coming to this country saw and were inspired by.

            So if you abandon the foundation of what this country was indeed built on, and what this country is and always was about, because you are sick of hearing it, that would be so very sad. Your now American family were immigrants too. I think they would be crying to know that’s how you feel.

          90. J.B.Jacobs says

            You forget, this country was founded on legal immigration, not illegal. My grandparents came here from Germany, LEGALLY!!! This nation became strong because of legal immigrants. The people coming here illegally are not immigrants, they are illegal aliens. Immigrants come here legally. We have a process for legal immigration. If they want to be a part of this country, let them go through the legal process or stay home. When we allow millions of illegal aliens into this country, we have no record of who they are, why they are here and where they are, you are asking for real trouble and we are seeing it every day.
            Without the wall, when you deport someone, maybe someone that has committed a terrible crime as we have seen before, they will walk back across the border and as we have seen before, and do the same thing again or worse. Look at what happened to the girl in San Francisco killed by an illegal alien who had been deported 5 times and he came right back.

            I hope Trump can build the wall, deport all illegals and we can get rid of some of the crime and drugs coming to this country and make America Great Again.
            If something happens and he can’t, we are going to lose our country.

            You talk about the vetting process, There is non for illegals, only people who come here legally. You act like 54% crime rate and something less for violent crimes committed by the illegals is O.K. It’s not for me.

            By the way, if Mexico doesn’t pay for the wall, it would still be cheaper for us to pay for it than to take care of 11 million illegals and getting more every day.

          91. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Most importantly THIS COUNTRY HAS ALWAYS BEEN GREAT. While it is not perfect, and certainly many things about it needs attention (as our history shows in our past), DJT won’t be able to do that if he continues to cause division among its citizens. That will either (1) spark a civil war, that will destroy our country; or, (2) wil spark a nuclear war that will destroy the world. Change cannot be rushed, it takes time, a lot of time. That change must be very carefully planned and worked out to have the most positive effect for the majority of the people and cultures involved. That most often cannot be done from the top down, but rather from the bottom up. Although his methodology has worked for the short term in the past, it has never worked for the long term.

            When this country was first founded there were no laws about who was legal or illegal. That came much later, and has experienced constant change over the years. for reasons that were as diverse as the people they affected.

            Attached is a link, from an extremely reliable source – The Statue of Liberty – Ellis Island Foundation, Inc. – that you can read and count on it to be completely factual, and based on historical records. It is meant to inform, not to take sides one way or the other.It can show you that the conflicts arising from the immigration issue are not anything new, albeit for different reasons throughout our history. What is does confirm is that this Great Nation of ours (yes, yours and mine) has always been a Nation of immigrants.

            The question still left unanswered – does America still have a duty to keep its doors open to the world? Can immigrants keep their own culture and language, and still be called Americans? Is continued economic growth in America dependent upon a liberal immigration policy? I believe the answer to all those questions is yes. Others say it is no. Either answer is not right or wrong – just opposing views on the same concerns – and should always be open for civilized discussion, hopefully resulting in an answer that is best for the people and Nation as a whole, and an understanding that at some point in our future, those answers will change according to what is best for the people and the Nations needs as a whole. We should never let that divide us as people, race or species.

            You are making the mistaken assumption that only legal immigrants go through a vetting process. In fact, many immigrants are here because they “over-stayed” their visa. The following link explains how much more complicated the issue is, what has been said by both candidates, and what is fact, fiction, or misleading.

            One, I’m not supporting illegal immigration, I’m only pointing out that 54% of illegal immigration accounts for those who are being held for non-violent Federal prosecution, and that those being held for violent Federal prosecution is substantially smaller, very substantially smaller.

            Many illegal immigrants are here seeking asylum from other countries, and will go through vetting to determine if their asylum claims are valid or not. Those that are valid claims, should be granted at least a temporary 5 yr asylum, and should be registered, and need to report in at least monthly, with confirmation as to where they live, jobs, etc. Providing they do not commit any criminal activity (I’m not talking traffic tickets) should be permitted to apply for citizenship at the end of those 5 yrs. Those whose vetting proves otherwise, should be imprisoned for a period, must work on say Federal or state projects for their upkeep, food, housing, medical care, and then sent back from whence they came.

            What happened to that young woman was tragic indeed, but could have just as easily have happened by a legal immigrant, a native born American, or a tourist from another country. I’m saying do not condemn an entire race or religion or ideology based on the alleged crimes of an extremely low percentage, frequently less than .010% of of total population of said race, religion or ideology. Don’t throw away the entire bushel of apples based on one bad apple that can be removed.

            Mexico will not pay for the wall, and no it will not be cheaper to build than paying for the care of illegal immigrants, but quite the opposite and costing between $15 – 25 billion to complete – with taxpayers footing the bill. Time estimates for completion are anywhere from 4 – 15 years.

          92. J.B.Jacobs says

            You are right, when this country was founded there were no immigration laws about who was legal or not. There are now but are not being enforced. The people who have work visa’s that have expired do not notify anyone where they are or what they are doing, why? because they are here illegally. What would you do to make them report in monthly.

            As far as them applying for citizenship, there are people that have been here illegally for 10 of 15 years and haven’t applied for citizenship. What would make them apply after 5 years?

            Yes, what happened to the woman could have been done by someone else, but wasn’t. Nobody is condemning a race for anything. We are talking about illegal aliens which is not a race.We are not throwing away an entire bushel of apples because of one bad apple. You said yourself the crime rate was 54% for illegals.

            Mexico is already paying for the wall. Carrier has decided 1100 good paying jobs will stay here instead of going to Mexico. Carrier jobs are paying about $30 an hour, That’s about $63,000 a year per employee. That’s what Mexico will be losing and we will be gaining. When Trump changes the tax codes for businesses and do away with the unnecessary regulations that is hurting companys, they may decide not to leave also, and some may be coming back.

            If people want to come to this country, there are legal ways to do it, but if you do you will be an American citizen, subject to the laws of this country. You won’t be able to run to a sanctuary city when you break the law.

          93. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            You are still misquoting me. ” You said yourself the crime rate was 54% for illegals….” What I stated was the 54% of illegals facing Federal prosecution were for NON-VIOLENT crimes, (BTW that includes all illegals, not just Mexicans, or people from Syria or other Arab countries). Immigration laws are being enforced on the Federal level. Where we are running into the problems with enforcement is on the State and often Local government levels. It’s at those levels that Sanctuary Cities are created; it is at those levels, that State laws prohibit the Federal government from removing known illegals. That is where the focus should be. Unfortunately, our Constitution prohibits the Federal government from interfering with the States in those respects. Over the decades, the Supreme Court has pretty much upheld the Constitution in that respect.

            You may not be aware, but even legal immigrants, must keep those Federal agencies in charge of the Immigration process, notified of where they live, if they move, jobs they have, etc. Homeland Security as well as other departments and agencies, maintains databases for just that purpose. Legal immigrants also must carry with them at all times, an ID card indicating they are legal immigrants awaiting citizenship. When a Census is taken, they must show that ID as well. The systems in place may not be 100% perfect, but it is far more accurate than you might expect it to be.

            So those precautions and systems are already in place. When and if an immigrant doesn’t follow the process/rules, a warrant is issued. Getting some states to comply to those warrants, has been at times difficult. Such was the case with the young woman that was murdered. Google or Bing the case, and you will see what I mean.

            Yes Carrier agreed to keep 1 of 2 factories in Indiana open. But the jobs at the Indianapolis plant saved only 1000 jobs, not the 1300 they planned on originally sending to Mexico. The Huntington facility is still going to Mexico, about 850 jobs with it. 850 + 300 = 1150 jobs to Mexico. Not a win at all, a loss of 50 jobs, a wash at best. But the tax breaks – $700 million – that Trump has promised them – where is that revenue going to come from. I guarantee you it will not be from Mexico. it will be from our pockets, not even Trumps nor the 1% elite. He may promise to change tax codes and such, but it is not as easily done as promised. It is also very unlikely that it will even happen – as he is not in charge of doing that. Even if it’s proposed by him, it could still take years before it’s even put to a vote by the House, let alone get to the Senate. There are bills still sitting in the House that haven’t even come up for a hearing some for many years. The process is so much more complicated than Trump even knew.

            But say the Congress didn’t agree with everything he wanted and changed things to provide less of an economic impact than Trumps plan. He likely would veto it, then it goes back to Congress and they could override his veto, putting into law something way less than he promised. That happening is a lot less common than you think. Many election promises by many presidential candidates were left unfulfilled. His “deal” and promises to Carrier for example, are not even close to what he has tried to claim. Here is a link that verifies that fact, and let’s you know what is really happening and the effect it will have both good and bad.

            Look, I don’t have all the answers. But at least I’m trying to come up with ideas that could maybe work. That is why I do welcome opposing views and thoughts, and am willing to participate in constructive conversations. I just don’t think that vulgarity, name-calling, etc., as we both have seen on this site and others, will do anything for any of us, and have no value whatsoever to helping to get this Nation on the right path. Not to make it great again, but to make it even greater. That will take all of us working together in a common goal.

            PS: Totally unrelated to anything we have discussed.

            With the Holiday Season upon us, I wanted to give you this website as a kind of holiday gift, from me to you. I promise with all my heart, you will love these guys. They are amazing. Hope you enjoy.


          94. J.B.Jacobs says

            I guess you have a different understanding of illegal. If there are 11 million illegals in this country, and nobody knows how many since they have no record of who they are or where they are, and there may be 20 million, I’m sure the Border Patrol didn’t set there and count them as they crossed the border. Illegal means they are breaking the law, so 100% of the illegals are law breakers. Legal means you are not breaking the law. Illegal means you are breaking the law and there are consequences or supposed to be.

            You talk about legals have ID’s but the illegals have not or legally anyway. Some have fake so they can get welfare, housing assistance and food stamps, which by the way, the legals and us are paying for them.

            I don’t know what you are talking about the jobs staying in this country. Carrier is keeping 1100 jobs here in the states, so that a gain of 1100 jobs. Instead of losing 2250 jobs to Mexico, 1150 are going according to your numbers.

            The $700 million you quoted is $7 million and is given by the state of Indiana in tax breaks over a period of 10 years. Trump did not offer them that, the state did.

            Trump has a lot of good ideas but he will need our help to get them done. If you don’t want to, that’s your prerogative. This is still a free country.

          95. Artemis says

            Illegals are also Criminals!

          96. Artemis says

            J.B I personally agree with EVERY word you said PERFECT. You can’t explain that to a Liberal, the “Illegals” vote (and the fraudulent votes) are the reason they’ve been “in Power” as long as they have, at long last, they’re finished, Thank God!

          97. J.B.Jacobs says

            They had better start packing their bags, Jan 20th will be here before you know it.

          98. susmart3 says

            “We did all we could with your choices and still stayed steadfast and loyal to the president try doing the same for Mr.Trump.” *You* personally may have done so, but the Republican party higher-ups *openly* worked to make Obama a “one-term President” and to block his every action.

            As to the President-elect, I’m waiting to see who’s really going to be running the country.

          99. Dale says

            I’m am waiting with anticipation as well. I serve Christ and know and pray that who has been put in office is just as it should be. It may not be what all want but it is what it is. Pray for your president no matter what. Your America and your God given freedoms in this land. If you take an oath mean it. So help me God

          100. susmart3 says

            I certainly hope he does well, for everybody’s sake. I appreciate your optimism.

          101. Mark Lahti says

            What you choose to call optimism we all call faith.

          102. susmart3 says

            Either works for me.

          103. linda says

            Dale, I am with you. During the long and ugly election period I prayed that God’s will be done. He and on He is in charge and knew the outcome. So we have Trump to lead us and I believe with everything in me he is the right man, we are already seeing him keeping his word and doing things before he even takes office. I pray that this country can become “Great Again” and we know who is in charge. I would have been devastated if Hillary had won, but I would have accepted it as I prayed for God’s will and gladly with open arms accept Donald Trump.

          110. susmart3 says

            America has always been a nation of immigrants, and big agriculture *caused* the immigration problem, as they’d rather hire illegals for less and who can be threatened with deportation. Win/win for them. But you know that…

          111. Mark Lahti says

            A nation of legal immigrants. That appears to be the problem with these leftist, progressives. That can’t seem to discern between legal and illegal when it comes to the immigration issue. It appears to me that that is the problem with all lefty concerns. It doesn’t matter what the law is. It just matters what they “feel”. No brain power there just touchy feely response in all matters. They keep claiming to be the intelligent and educated part of society. Yet they can’t quite get it that they feel their motives and can’t to the part where it all needs to be thought out to reach the intelligent answers to the problems that face us as a nation.

          112. susmart3 says

            I would love to get to “the part where it all needs to be thought out…” We didn’t get there through the Bush years either. Having no actual discernable policy hurts *everyone*.

          116. Mark Lahti says

            Exactly right. His legacy will be that of the first “black” (in appearance only) president to totally divide, corrupt, and attempt to destroy the greatest nation to have ever existed in the history of mankind.

          117. Artemis says

            While the rest of our “so-called” Government literally sat on their duffs and “enabled” all of it!

          118. proffordisab says

            Dear Dale, Unless you are capable of foreseeing the future, how can you be so sure of yourself? People are building impressions of Mr. Trump everyday, which change as his decisions change with him. Biting at Ms. Carraher isn’t going to make every decision Mr. Trump makes a great decision. Why be so narrow minded? In fact, how can you be so sure about how his term will work out? Most of us take a wait and see perspective before jumping to conclusions. There is a huge range of failure or success any president can arrive at by the end of their term, from engaging the country in an unwanted and undeserved war to building the economy strongly and successfully while maintaining the infrastructure, strengthening employment, sustaining a strong health care system, and keeping education competitive and higher education affordable for all economic classes. Being so sure at this point in his President Elect position sounds to me like herrings following the crowd. I think we all have time to “wait and see” how things work out, after all he isn’t even president yet…what do you say?

          119. Dale says

            God questions and analogy. My perspective comes from hope and wanting things to be in order. I trust in the one who puts people in place all for a purpose and reason. It’s not a matter of what any one person wants, it’s for the good of all no matter what. You can argue and raze hell till the cows come home but all things have been foreseen for some time. I’m no prophet but I do know that our God has things under control no matter what anyone or anything else has to say about it. We are not capable to understand or to handle it. Please be part of a solution and help as best we can. God please bless America so help me God

          120. Gary D Flatt says

            Who ties your shoes?

          121. Dale says

            The Lord Jesus Christ! God the father son and holy spirit. Same one that ties yours. You just I guess don’t know yet. By the way, what kind of fishing comment is that?

        5. MoeY says

          Just like you got what you paid for in Obama, and now we have to fix what you bought and paid for with a President that will include ALL Americans, including you. When he gave his acceptance speech, he said the Clinton campaign called and congratulated him, then he changed “him” to us. That is not ego speaking. That is leadership speaking. But then, you wouldn’t recognize leadership, after the disastrous last 8 years.

          1. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            The last 8 years were disastrous because the Repubs sat on their butts and did nothing. Not because of Obama, Clinton or anyone else. You want respect from us, from me – then earn it, be civilized please.

          2. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says

            The last 8 years were disastrous because of Obama Trying to transform America!!! Obama, Clinton and the Globalist are traitors!! That’s why Clinton lost she is not trust worthy like Obama…Real America woke up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You want respect from me – then earn it, and be civilized and stop with your liberal nonsense Moron…y ou POS!!!.

            Sorry, should have read your reply first.

          5. MoeY says

            That is an absolute lie straight out of the lying main stream left leaning media. The house Republicans sent over 250 bills to the senate for their discussion and approval, but that idiot from Utah,(good riddance to him), Harry Reid refused to even let them come up for debate, let alone pass them. They sat on his stinkin’ desk, and were never looked at again. So, no, the Repubs did not sit on their butts, but they should have kicked his. Learn your facts before you accuse.

          6. Scrubjay says

            Facts matter not to the Progressives/Democrats.

          This is hilarious coming from someone who supported that pathological liar Hillary Klintoon!

          1. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Please show actual documentation that she lied. A civilized discourse would be appreciated and welcomed. At least by me. Only rule is no name calling. Okay, deal?

          2. Jeffrey Cahoon says

            We can;t shoe you any, because she destroyed all the documentation! Hillary is a criminal plain and simple!

          5. Pigdog says

            Francine! Don’t you watch the news? Comey came right out and confirmed she lied several times. She claimed she only used one device, they discovered she used SEVERAL devices, she claimed she only deleted personal e-mail regarding her yoga and the wedding…..none were found pertaining to those two topics out of the 30,000 + deleted email. she claimed she did not send any classified email. Hundreds of classified e-mail were discovered. She claimed the Benghazi attack was based on a move protest yet sent her daughter an e-mail stating it was a terrorist attack!! I can go on but my fingers are getting tired typing.

          7. ABO says

            FBI director James Comey having completed the bureau’s initial investigation told Congress (house of representatives) that Clinton was extremely careless with classified information and indeed lied under questioning. If that’s not good enough for you, he also stated that she hid and/or destroyed evidence. The reason she was not indicted was that she was smart enough to hide and /or destroy critical evidence pertinent to bringing an indictment and prosecution. HRC makes John Gotti look like a rank amateur!

          8. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            He never said she lied fool. Careless, yup, but not illegal. Try again.
            He didn’t say she hid or destroyed evidence, which she didn’t. Shall I get you the transcripts or do you think you manage that on your own. Just cause Trump said it was so, doesn’t mean it was true. You honestly don’t know who you’re putting your faith into, do you?

          9. ABO says

            Watch the video of the Congressional Hearing and stop posting your opinion as proof. Gowdy asked Comey on several occasions if HRC had told the truth about various incidents and Comey answered that she had not. Last time I checked that meant she lied about it. Now maybe you are not bright enough to understand that but if you had actually read the transcripts you could not have missed it. While we’re at it I’ve noticed that you have repeatedly told others to stop the name calling and and insults, but it appears that you think it is OK for you to insult and call names. To finish up, when exactly did I say that I have put my faith in Trump?
            Let’s see if you can come up with one of your little stories to cover that lie, fool.

          10. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says

            TRUMP was right about Crooked lying evil Hillary!!! She lost hahahahhahahahahhahahahhahahhaha

          11. Pigdog says

            WOW!! Kool-Aid addiction! We don’t need the transcripts! I along with thousands of others heard Comey loud and clear on national TV contradict everything she said. Read my other posting to your statement.

          12. Skippy says

            You need to read the Espionage Act. I had to sign papers on the Espionage Act, because I handled classified material when I was in the military. If I did 1/10 of what she had done I would still be in prison. All you have to do is be careless with classified material for it to be illegal.

          Shut the hell up with your cry baby sore loser hating dumbass self. He will come more so doing what he said than that sorry piece of shit clinton.

          1. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Hey we know he won, but we don’t need to be called names or cursed at. Why do you assume all the Dems and Libs hate you? I don’t hate you, I disagree with you, but I don’t hate you. Is there a reason I should? It’s differing opinions that bring about progress, and change. Maybe we do need to go to a one person one vote system, majority rules kind of system. Then none of us can place blame on any party or politician, since we as the people would have truly made the decision. Please, lets not feed the hurt, hate or anger. Please let’s just try to help each other get through this as best as possible.

            So you want a New World Order. In my page you won’t get one.

          4. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Really? That is exactly what you want – why shouldn’t I. All you can come up with are insults, and name-calling. I am so not a racist either – in fact I am mixed race, including Native American, with quite a diverse heritage and diverse religious background. Want a smack down – you just got one. And I didn’t even call you any foul names. I didn’t vote for DJT. I don’t trust him. He is a racist and a bigot. I don’t believe he is good for you, me or this country. Just as you are entitled to your opinion, so am I. I will continue to be vocal, as is my right. I just won’t do it using foul and vulgar language. I do agree to disagree – in fact I welcome differing views. Why can’t you??

          5. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says

            You keep attacking our great President Trump you get a smack down!!!
            You are sooooooo ignorant, pathetic and a phony its you who’s attacking people and coming on these boards attacking Trump you Liberal progressive jackass fool… We don’t want your progressive ignorant low energy America!!!
            We rejected You liberal progressives, The Liberal lying media, The Globalist,
            The racist liberal thugs, etc…

            Help you get thru it AMERICA IS BACK we don’

          6. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says

            You’re very uneducated I don’t blame you I blame your Parents for raising your progressive ignorant ass !!!

          7. Pigdog says

            Don’t worry Francine! I am putting my bet down that Moo-shell Obama is going to run for President in 4 years. You will have your chance again to put a liberal socialist FEMALE into office. I hate to say it but she will be a tough one for Trump to beat.
            Obamaville may be rebuilt…..God help us!!

        9. rdells says

          SO true!! Amazing how many Blind and Stupid rubes fell for this master con.

          1. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            I agree but let’s not call names. Stupidity really has nothing to do with their decision. They are fearful, hurt, felt abandoned and they wanted someone they thought they could trust.They have been manipulated by a master con. Very smart people can be so manipulated and not realizing it is happening. Add desperation to that equation, and he, T, had several million easy targets. Let’s both hope that we are wrong, and that T will be the best thing that happened in a long time. But if it does turn out like you and I think, the rest of these people are going to need us and we them to pick up the pieces if and when it all falls apart.

          2. Pigdog says

            Francine, you seem like a very nice person, unlike the rest of your party that is burning the flag of our country I fought for or tearing up the streets, smashing windows, looting stores, beating up Trump supporters. These are the people supporting Clinton the woman who lied on national television several times!! I know how badly women wanted a female president but it didn’t happen this time. Thank God that woman didn’t get elected!!

          3. rdells says

            “Distasteful common people” – yup, and all in that basket of “proud to be deplorables”.

            Yes so true that Obama and his Racist liberal thugs who hate Real America got Koe’d …..we crushed these bastards!!!!!

        10. Rick2101 says

          You can always tell a Trump supporter, you just cannot tell them much.

        11. celiayounger says

          he used psychological manipulation during the campain. he insulted anyone who he thought will not vote for him, while everyone was ”looking” and listening at that, he was secretly talking and getting $$$$$$ from Russia. Talking to gobernment and businesses China, India etc… to make deals… talking & sending his own children, Ivanka etc… to these countries to make business in a very favorable situation since he was spected to win the election. they recibe him and children with open arms. .

          1. J.B.Jacobs says

            Got any proof of what you said, or you just repeating lies from the lying media?

          2. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            You are absolutely correct.

        12. celiayounger says

          agree with you. ”They” still don’t understand what they voted for/whom.

          You haven’t got a clue in your useful idiot head. You lost, we won, now disappear.

        15. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says

          Francine ru smokin Democrack again…lay off dat shi* it shows how pathetic, ignorant, low energy and liberal you are! Now open your dirty liberal mouth and eat some Crooked evil lying crap…enjoy Im sure you will…..

          1. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            SMH, you poor child. You will learn what you have done soon enough. BTW, no reason for vulgarity or childish outbursts or name calling. Do you know what civilized discourse is? Look it up and then please use it. Never said I was a Democrat.

          2. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says

            Francine Ellen Carraher …you responded Im so glad you did because you are an original liberal lunatic. I know the truth hurts that Donald J Trump is your President whether you like it or not. You have 3 choices…

            1. Go protest and wav dat liberal fist on high

            2. Go cry on Tv like all the Liberal media news babies hahahahahaha

            3. Leave the Country

            Now, Trump is a great business man man for you to attack a man of success a Patriot, a great man a man of respect and honor hwne he receives it. You should be ashamed of your Liberal self….You are ignorant, Liberal and low energy…

            Now stop hating on Trump you couldn’t shine his shoes …you disgrace!!!


          3. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            You’ve never met the man you idolize, I did. He is not what he claims to be, he will not save you. You are the disgrace, not me. I am not a liberal either. An American, yes. A progressive yes. Learn the difference – if you were a true American as you claim, you would not behave as you do. Trump will never be my president until he earns that right – which he hasn’t done yet. BTW, I don’t believe in your god either. Deal with it.

          4. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says

            Your a progressive Moron and a disgrace! Leave the country like the rest of you Progressive liberal racist thugs! I respond to your ignorance and attacks against our GREAT PRESIDENT DONALD J TRUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!

            Well President Trump is the President so get use to it!!!! lost loser….

            TRUMP is President whether your Liberal progressive ignorant ass like sit or not …too bad keep spreading those lies, hate and propaganda against PRESIDENT TRUMP!!!

          Well, another CRY-BABY DemNOcrat. Happy yo see you have it already figured out. Well, he just saved 1,000 jobs in Indiana before he is even in office. He kept his word about an inclusive team. He has so-far 4 women or is it 5 including KellyAnn and 3 of the women are not “WHITE-BREAD” . mORE WOMEN & MINORITIES to come.

        20. albaby2 says

          You mean like we paid for Obama? Your plan sounds like the Democrats agenda.

          1. R DoCdoWedo! says

            Yes check it out you might learn something. No it is true and it has noting to with
            Democrats agenda.

        21. Pigdog says

          Were not talking about Obama!!!

        22. Gary D Flatt says

          Trump has been saying the same things about the American goverment for over twenty years. Check him out on the Oprah show talking twenty two years ago on YouTube for yourself IF your bright enough? Trump is a great manager, he sees ANY project from begging to end. If anyone can straighten out the mess that Obama and Bush’s have left America in, it is President Donald J Trump, you can count on it.

          1. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Oh please, he has flip flopped back and forth more frequently than people change their underwear. He’ll say something and 5 minutes later, denied he ever said it, even when he’s made to watch himself saying it. Still you believe all the bs he tells you. Open your eyes and ears. Better yet, open that closed minded brain of yours.

          2. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says

            Still hating on Trump are you obsessed Liberal Moronic progressive idiot!!!!
            You don’t liek Trump that’s your opinion but your going to Get Real Americans against you that will Crush Liberalism!!!!!

          3. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says

            Oh please all that bshit out of your Liberal trashy racist hateful mouth you should swallow it back ur so Ignorant and hateful…you should be thrown in jail or deported you Liberal pos!

          4. Francine Ellen Carraher says

          Ha Ha Ha, sounds like your a very sore loser mam. thanks for the great laugh. Trump won and he won without your vote. your the one he told to piss off. Your the one he is done with. His speeches were all lies? Only in your wildest dreams LOL. I believe Trump is right when he says he IS the only one that can fix the mess this political system is in. He actually LISTENS to the people. He listened to your kind and figured out how to beat you. LOL. actually, i am sorry for laughing, but honestly, i just can’t help it LOL.Hee hee you lost! bye Hillary, have a great life.

        24. Scrubjay says

          Gets what he wants and then he’s done with you?? You mean like the Democrats have done with blacks, union members, other minorities and, basically, all of their voters for the past 50-60 years?

          1. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            You can’t argue with facts. Read the linked article – It’s history reality, facts – not myth.

        26. Robin Loveless says

          Please don’t talk about things you are not informed to do so. It’s pointless to spew your cancer infecting others who are not immune to such mouth germs.

          1. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Really? Better look at your own mouth first. I am far more informed and educated than you think. SMH So close minded. I don’t think you are capable of recognizing the truth if it came up and grabbed you by the pussy

          2. GODBlessRealAmerica#1 says

            You are ignorant, low energy, pathetic and spiteful. You are a progressive idiot!!!
            TRUTH is PRESIDENT trump and you can’t do shi* hahahhahahahhahahhahahhahahahhaha now leave the country, go cry and protest you Moron!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        31. Artemis says

          Sorry Lady, but anytime that you get Communists out of the Government, it IS a GOOD thing! That is the most unsuccessful and hated “political” system the world over….you need to have some serious discussions with people that “lived” in the former Soviet Union….they were PRISONERS of their own Government for over 50 years, and the same could be said for Cuba! THIS Country does not need that kind of “change”, and for those that think it does, go live in a Communist Country, and find out the truth!!!

        32. Ann Broadhead says

        33. tarheel61 says

          So you had rather Hillary put Agenda 21 into full force more abortions,more toxic vaccines, helping the elderly meet an earlier demise. Sounds great to me !

        34. linda says

          Francine, and you know all this because?

        35. Mark Lahti says

          I think you may be talking about our current occupier of the WH. It really sounds exactly like what has happened over the last eight years. Out current PEOTUS hasn’t even had the opportunity to be sworn into office. But then again it is typical of the left to ignore all appearance of civility. I think that you may be harboring some of what I like to call the “cry baby, we lost, but we won’t go away without pitching a hissy fit” syndrome. Oh well, we are big enough to let the children have their little tantrum. We still have about six weeks or so until Trump actually assumes the post he was elected to. Plenty of time for the losers to go through the grieving process and eventually get over it. Hope you enjoy your wasted efforts.

        36. Artemis says

          IMHO the Liberals are the ones that should and will pay for their web of deceit and lies imposed on the American People. I would not like to be in “your shoes”, legalization of Homosexuality, and the very thought of them “adopting” children makes me sick…..I am in total agreement with the Holy Bible on that one! The legalization of drugs and Immoral “sex changes”, and the list of evil they’ve done goes on and on! Those of you who choose to oppose Donald Trump for doing the “right” things will answer to “We the People” one way or the other, but MORE importantly will have to answer to the God that they do not believe in….Poetic Justice at it’s very best! I can sleep nights, but I’ll never understand how you can?

          1. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Look, you can believe, and obviously do, anything you want to believe. Just have something to back those beliefs up. I don’t believe in God the same way you do. But I’m certainly not going to use threats to get you to do that. I do believe in the idea of “separation of church and state”. I believe in “All the People” not just in your idea of “We the People”. I believe in “…hate the sin not the sinner…” and in “…judge not lest ye be judged…” I believe in something greater than myself. You seem to believe in yourself being greater and more deserving than anyone else. Mr. Trump and Mr. Pence believe there is no one better than they are (individually, of course). I believe, that when the time comes, we will be judged by our acts, how we have treated others. “…treat others as you would have others treat you…” You don’t need to understand how I sleep at night. I sleep just fine. Poetic justice to me would be that when all is said and done, and we pass from this world to the next, all that I will find is neverending peace. And that people like you will not be there with me. Perhaps you would have been sent back to the world for a second try at getting it right.

          2. Artemis says

            It was reported that Obama “stole” 700 BILLION from medicare at the outset of Obamacare! Also there was a front page story done by an investigative reporter in the late 1970’s about how Social Security was an “open-ended” account and,
            went on to list 32 “programs” that were being funded with Social Security money.
            There have been comments made from time to time that Social Security money was being used to fund various WAR efforts that we were involved in, and Viet Nam has been mentioned several times. On a more recent note, it came to light
            that General Motors had “paid back” all but 19 BILLION dollars of the “bailout” money that had been given to them by the Obama “administration”, and the Government calmly told GM ” It’s ok, you don’t have to bother paying the rest back”….I’d give a nickel to know who “authorized” that! No wonder we’re going broke! If any of you has any knowledge about this, feel free to jump in here and comment on it……..

          3. The Redhawk says

            Well it is my opinion that all those Underhanded FUBAR policies were “BAKED IN THE CAKE” by Pelosi, Reid and the Then Majority of the FORMER (D) party under the “directives’ of BHO ZO …..But to me the BEST NEWS since 8 Nov 2016 when We Rejected the BHOVOMIT/Clinton Fubar Party REGIME was that Party Re Electing Pelosi as their “LEADER” to Finish her Successful run to may be Totally Lose remaining SEATS held by the FUBAR PARTY in the HOUSE!!!

            You are so uninformed. You should be ashamed. The chickens came home to roost okay, using the inside of your head – where there is obviously no brain, to nest in. The Republicans passed the ACA and made the ill into law.

          7. The Redhawk says

            Good question…I hadn’t even thought about that!

          13. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Why doesn’t that suprise me, you don’t think much, period.

          14. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            You know I have paid my tax into OASDI and Medicare since I started working at the age of 16. I still pay tax into it, even though I now only work part time. Yes people, it is a tax that everyone is required to pay from employment income into the system. What you don’t seem to know is that the government has been subsidising it for decades.

          15. billyrb1 says

            Agree. Social Security is government’s slush fund. Government is always said it’s borrowing from Social Security, but you never here of it getting paid back. Social Security is pocket slush money for government to spend freely as it chooses.

          16. J.B.Jacobs says

            Social Security is not an entitlement. I started paying into SS when I was 16 years old. I worked and payed into SS until 2 years ago. If I was still working, I’d still be paying into SS and Medicare. I pay over $100 a month to Medicare and still have to pay 20% of my doctor and hospital bills. These programs are not free and government needs to keep their sticky fingers out of them. The amount of SS I receive is based on the amount I have paid in. The Medicare payment comes out of my SS check each month. It’s been so long I can’t remember when the last raise we received in SS. Every once in a while the story will be passed around that SS will be broke in 30 years so they can go up on your SS deduction from your pay check. I’ve been hearing this for about 50 years. If it does it will not be because of the money the people receive. It will be because the government can’t keep their hands out of the till. I hear about illegals drawing SS and Medicare. Why?. The American citizen cannot draw either one unless they have paid into it. Someone needs to fix this and I hope Trump will

          17. Noni says

            Exactly. Been working sine I divorced age 17, now 69 and working more than full time. Will probably work til 75. So, I’ve done my part.

          20. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            yup. Sure did. Obviously you didn’t.

          21. JZAMACONA says

            They didn’t have to pay it back because its another gift from Obama ti the union to whom he already had given 50% ownership whike screwing the secured debt and the stock holders. Communist pricks thats what they are.

            Heck there are TWO fukoffs that must be done away….Pelosi and Fubar SCHUMER….and their voting BLOCK HEADS……They Raped Medicare for BHOZOCARE and now are Blaming Turump for wanting to make it RIGHT….

          26. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Weird, I get the same benefits from Medicare that my parents were getting. They actually haven’t changed much at all.

          27. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Actually, no it won’t. Trump already agreed there are things in it he wants to keep. he never knew, because it didn’t ever affect him. He’s rich enough to pay for his own personal insurance. The ACA didn’t say you had to buy into Obamacare, only that you must have insurance from somewhere. If you can afford it on your own, you can go that route.

          28. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Name calling again. That seems all you people know how to do.

      Romney is the only one who has the diplomatic ability to mend fences. I like Guiliani and have met both he and Petraeus (who should be disqualified immediately for his indiscretion with our national security–which showed weakness of character). Like both men but Romney has the presence, the gravitas and the knowledge of all foreign affairs (read “No Apologies”). Trump is a big boy and can take are of himself. He has said he likes that Romney was a fighter and pushed back against him. He should go with the best and not let little Kellyanne (who?) tamper with his best CEO judgment style.

      1. PBHayes says

        Haven’t met Patraeus but I have met Romney and many other high level politicians including Presidents as well as high ranking military. I just don’t know if Romney is tough enough to deal with the expanding threats of Islamic terror, Putin, China and North Korea. Time will answer this question. With all the President’s I’ve met I wouldn’t walk across the street to meet Obama, who clearly owns the title of Worst President Ever.

        1. Francine Ellen Carraher says

          Don’t let Romney’s gentle demeanor fool you, don’t need to be a blow hard to be tough.

          1. PBHayes says

            The entire nation watched Romney cave in the second debate when he had the failed neighborhood organizer on the ropes. Allowing the clearly biases debate moderator to lie about Obama’s response to Benghazi was crucial to Romney’s defeat. Being a blowhard or not being one has nothing to do with Romney’s failure. Having the balls to stand up and call a liar a liar and simply tell the truth is what is needed.Romney failed to do that and the world had to suffer four more years of leftist insanity.

      2. cutterguy says

        Romney is an idiot rino

        1. Francine Ellen Carraher says

          Actually that title is already held by Woodrow Wilson.

          1. ABO says

            Apparently you are unaware of the meaning of the term RINO. Yes Woodrow Wilson was an idiot, no doubt about it but he was no Republican. He was an extremely weak Democratic President with absolutely no leadership skills whatsoever. He was thoroughly convinced that Hitler was not a major threat and should be dealt with through diplomacy rather than from a position of power.
            By the way the site you provide to back up your statement is one I have not previously encountered and I thought I was familiar with most, if not all of its ilk. The author of the article, Robert Merry’s assessment of Richard Nixon as President is sadly lacking and entirely one sided. Completely ignoring Nixon’s entirely successful and in fact amazing diplomatic endeavors with China and his success in ending the ridiculously drawn out conflict in Viet Nam, which Democrats were unable to deal with for fifteen years. I would suggest you might research your sources more carefully in the future.

        Kellyanne Conway, a bright, extremely capable, nice person who wants the best for her boss…that’s what we “secretaries” used to do, look out for the bosses interest,

        1. Francine Ellen Carraher says

          Yes, but she over stepped the bounds and her level of authority, and went completely rogue. Anywhere else in business and she would have been severely reprimanded and likely fired on the spot without a recommendation. She should not get a cabinet post, and should be removed entirely from any kind of public appearance schedule. I don’t like Trump, but she was just plain wrong on so many levels. I would definitely support him in saying his infamous, “YOU’RE FIRED”.

      5. Francine Ellen Carraher says

        I agree with you about Romney, out all the choices Trump has, he should go with Romney. As for Rudy, charming yes, qualified not so much, best choice, not even close. Kellyanne, she has her own agenda, and it hasn’t got anything to do with what’s best for the country. I do have one question for you though, and I mean no disrespect to you. Why is it when a Republican, a former general, a disgraced general, who admitted to placing our national security at risk the way he did, his actions you describe as “… a weakness of character…”, but when the same is discussed about Hillary Clinton, a democrat, her actions are described as “…corrupt, criminal…lock her up…kill her….”?? Not that you said that in your post, but that’s what I keep reading in posts and hearing. I feel like I’m kinda hearing a bit of a double standard going on here. Please tell me it ain’t so Marie, please tell me.

        1. Francine Ellen Carraher says

          Oh yeah, ignore cutterguy’s comment. He’s completely wrong there.

        2. bernie says

          Anyone may make a mistake or do something wrong in their life, but when you live your whole life in that manner ; that is a completely different thing.

    4. William Gagliardi says

      I think this is a calculated open ‘rift”. When Romney is rejected the Republicans can feel good that he was considered. Romney is incapable of representing Trump Administration or the USA. Rudy is the best candidate, but to put him there without other considerations will embolden the “never trumpets” to work against Trump governing for 4 years. We have the liberals ,Hollywood elite, and media for that.

      1. Francine Ellen Carraher says

        I believe Romney is Trumps best choice. Rudy has a weak character and no experience in foreign policy. He is not the person to help bring the country together. I would rather have someone on my team that has the guts to push back when I might be straying of the path. I wouldn’t want only people that agree or with me or are “yes” men/women. I would want people to make me stop and think where I’m moving, who will make me see the trees for the forest, so to put it. Nor would I want people who will be so divisive as to push the Nation as a whole into a greater divide.

        Trump has some basically good ideas, it’s his methodology that I find fault with. I agree with him that the ACA needs some really drastic changes, but don’t think trashing the entire thing is the way to go, especially when there is nothing to replace it. I feel that there is a more important underlying cause that needs to be addressed, and that is the insurance industry as a whole. We need to get that under control – or trashed – before anything else will work.

        Just like I believe Bernie had some really good ideas, like a National Healthcare system, and free education for everyone. Did you know that with all the horrible things and all the human rights violations that Castro did, he actually did some really good things for his country? They have a free National Healthcare system that actually works. Their literacy rate is way higher than anything this Nation has ever had, because of free and equal education and for the people. They produce more qualified doctors, even better than ours, and have leased them to third world countries to help improve their healthcare – on average 900 per year of new, highly qualified and educated physicians.

        1. Milton W. Lowe says

          You can go on & on all you want…Romney is a backstabber & if he did it once, he will do it again. I voted for Romney & saw him lose his own election in about the 2nd debate…no Romney is not a good candidate for anything…a back stabbing, hypocritical person is not what Trump needs in his cabinet or anywhere else in the government…

          1. bernie says

            The fact that he teamed up with the Never Trumpers, which included Billy Cristol, showed what Romney really is. If anyone is worse than Romney, Cristol would be the one. They never let up on Trump, just kept slinging mud and lies. Also, after Trump gave Cruz a segment to speak at the convention, Cruz showed the kind of man he really is. These three guys literally tried to destroy Trump. I hope Trump picks some others, but he can pick who he wants. I’m with him all the way and most of those he is picking are good choices.

      I guess my family and I are some of the “grass roots” that have been texting and telephoning Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway about Romney. I would much rather Romney be with his family and enjoy life, I wish him no harm, but he does not deserve, nor would he be an asset, in any major position in the Trump Administration.

    6. celiayounger says

      worse was the Bush’ and Mr. Obama had to deal with that for several years….so don’t say ”disastrous effect” when it was BUSH THE ONE WITH a DISASTROUS presidency.

      1. PBHayes says

        When George W. Bush entered office he was faced with the destructive effect of 8 years of Clinton ignoring Islamic terrorism. I was there as an FBI Agent and can attest to this fact. Case after case and opportunity after opportunity was ignored by Bill Clinton because as we now know tens of millions of dollars was being paid by state sponsors of Islamic terror to the Clinton’s to buy their cooperation. Bush was not a successful President when it came to many of our nations problems but I personally know of countless terror attacks that were thwarted under the Bush Presidency. Under Obama nothing but disaster after disaster. Once again a Republican is going to be called upon to clean up the massive cesspool created by the Democrats. All Americans should be praying for Trump’s success.

    7. SouthernPatriot says

      Kellyanne is just voicing the thoughts of the grassroots of the Trump voters. She has received a huge amount of tweets, and emails from Trump voters who really do not want this RINO and backstabber in any prominent position in the Trump Administration.

        really? so the deviant , treasonous criminal hilliary is a better choice? she sold out our country for millions for her personal foundation (which BTW only gives about 6% to help others (they consider if they speak to another foundation or organization to be ‘giving’ to that foundation)); she has aided and abetted the enemy (which is treason) including spouting highly classified information at the last debate; she sold US secrets to fatten her personal foundation, which BTW she and her husband transferred 1.8 BILLION of that money to Qatar two days before the election (thank you wikileaks); she would sell your soul (and I am speaking about YOUR soul) to get to her goal. She is a racist of the highest stating that blacks were dumb and worthless and only good for a vote; that the young are fu**ing dumb; that hispanics were needy and yet these people fall at her feet. she wants an open border, no an open hemisphere that would destroy the working American citizen. her goal is to be queen of the hemisphere. Read those wikileaks and you will find she has a public facade and hides her true feelings toward the American citizen which BTW she HATES and doesn’t think is compliant enough. she cares NOTHING for you and I, and it is all about her. Yet again people fall at her feet. Wake up.

        2. Francine Ellen Carraher says

          Is that the best you can do? Name calling, immature and childish behavior? Playground bullying? Fact, Trump didn’t win the popular vote, lost that big time. So the majority of the Nation’s people are not for Trump. Offer something better, explaining how exactly he is going to represent us all, or offer some plans of your own. Like what would you do to replace ACA, what would your solution be?

          1. tim says

            Cry me a hand full Francine. your so damn dumb that you can’t see past your own nose. all you Hillary & Odumber supporters do nothing butt run your fat mouth calling people names. And childish ha ha. your one to be talking. Here let me help you to the “Cry Room” and you can get your favorite color play doe to play with, along with your coloring book. everything going to be fine. ok Now to your question about the ACA. My personal opinion is to shit can the whole thing. When your party cramped this down our throat 88 % of Americans had insurance and who they choose to have it with. That Nigger yall put in the white house lied and millions of people who worked and could afford there coverage lost it. And why ? because the 12% who never paid into the system, the ones who just lay around and fuck all day get drunk and do drugs they needed it more than the people who worked and paid into the system and did the right thing so they could have have good coverage got fuck !! Health insurance is a benefit you work for not a give me like you people on the left , like every thing else thinks it should be free. you already get free food free housing, free cars, free utility’s free phones, and it goes on and on. So I hope TRUMP takes it all away from you fee loading cry baby’s. If you don’t work and pay into the system you shouldn’t be allowed to draw out of it. As for a the two million popular votes your talking about. The electoral vote did what it was designed to do and that to protect the county from a uneducated mob of people who don’t understand the difference between a thieving, lying corrupt , no good piece of shit of a human & a pill of shit. Thank GOD 306 people did and that’s all that counts. This country has now become more populated with free loading sorry people than the working common sense people. Get use to seeing the electoral decide the elections. Were not going to stand by and watch people like take over and destroy our country. don’t like it leave Tim

          2. Francine Ellen Carraher says

            Like I said before, you are so ignorant you can do nothing but act like a playground bully. You can’t come up with a plan about ACA, because you don’t have one. You only know how to berate people that you don’t agree with, for no other reason than that you are white and they are not. However, Trump is a lying piece of garbage, more corrupt than anything in the history of this country. He could care less about anyone but himself. My people were here on this land in this country long before you or your ancesters ever came here. Over 2.5 million people voted against Trump. He didn’t get the popular vote, you can’t change that. So if you don’t like the way America was, go back to where you came from. The rest of us aren’t going anywhere. AMERICAN WAS ALWAYS GREAT.

          3. tim says

            your a fucking dumb lying ignorant person that don’t know there ass from there face & your breath smells of shit i know because thats all you talk is shit. my family and ancestors go back to the mid 1800’s if you should know & my grand daddy had over 20 slaves. And didn’t lose not one to Abe’s presidential war on the south. So shut your pie hole up.!! Like I said you and your 2.5 million & plus just need to sit back and watch how a educated man run this country will gain the USA back there respect that you kind of people thrown away. Your cowards, your pussies, you have no morals, you live off others, and were tired of your kind so get the hell outta our country or be prepared to be hated on, disrespected & policy’s crammed down your throat that you hate so bad you puke and shit at the same time your gonna hate it so bad. YOU LOST that’s the fact’s so crawl back under your rock and hide yourself or be crushed like the cock roach you are. Ha Ha ha. Face it your a loser, you and your 2.5

      I agree, so does the rest of my family 6+. Please do not appoint neither Romney nor any of the insiders who never stood up against obama….Boehner, Ryan, McCarthy, McConnell, McCain, et al, they are part of the mess we are in!

      1. mariethomson says

        Actually Trump wins when he is big enough to include the best of the best in his cabinet. That means Romney for State and the other two must be somewhere near on military or domestic policy. He has shown he knows how to mend fences with his picks already and Romney at state will bring back many Republicans that even sat out the election and did not vote for anyone because of dislike for Trump. Trump is a smart man and a CEO who knows he needs an A lister in this position.

        1. Luisa Matta says

          Marie, as a former MA resident most of my life, I was not impressed with Gov. Romney’s leadership in my “over-the-edge” liberal State. I saw him as a good business man, a very weak leader and politician..not an “A lister” The SOS does not need a business man (we have one, Pres-Elect, Trump) SOS needs a strong, decisive leader with different added qualifications. I do not see Gov. Romney as that kind of leader. Also the possibility of a Gov. Romney nomination has already become a divisive issue which issue we certainly do not need at this time, Personally, “bringing back many Republicans who sat out the election” is not a good thingl Since they declare themselves to be Republicans (I am an independent), their betrayal of their party is a serious flaw. (I vote the person who best will serve all the people) I know who these “Republicans” are and so do millions of Americans…these “Republicans” need to be “voted out” . In light of this, I doubt Gov. Romney can be loyal and true to promote the policies the Pres-Elect has said he wants to pursue. If such a nomination occurs, I will leave it to time to prove it to be good/bad/, etc.
          Lastly, having been in the restaurant business for over 35 years and with my strong Italian roots, I’m for Machiavelli’s thoughts on business “get rid of the “old” and put in your “new” ….something like “draining the swamp”

        2. Francine Ellen Carraher says

          General P placed our national security in jeopardy – for sex with his mistress. First he commits adultery and then treason. This is someone you want near the military?? I think not. As for Rudy, unfit, unqualified, too old for politics. He doesn’t need the job, has successful businesses, needs to go away. Oh and he’s an adulterer as well. Doesn’t that bother any of you?? Or are you saying it’s okay for a man to cheat on his wife??

          1. DCaldwell says

            What bothers me the most, Francine, is your accusation of treason by General P. He was convicted on a misdemeanor count of mishandling classified documents. Far from a treasonous act – research and truth shall set you free, try it.

          2. hangem'high says

  6. Skippy says

    So much for Trump being an outsider. Most of his cabinet picks have been establishment Republicans.

    1. PatriotGal says

      Skippy, how else do you think he’s going to get things through – with people who haven’t the contacts and knowledge? He never said he would would have outsiders; rather, he said he would get the job done! That’s a fabulous CEO – one who surrounds himself with capable, qualified, knowledgeable people.

      1. Skippy says

        You guys pushed Trump as an outsider, and someone that would go against the establishment. Stop making excuses for him. There are plenty of conservative he could put in his cabinet, but he chooses to put in rhino Republicans. Trump has already started walking back on his campaign promises. As I said before SO MUCH FOR HIM BEING AN OUTSIDER!!!!

    2. Francine Ellen Carraher says

      And lobbyists too. Some of the people he said he wanted to get rid of. Good job of keeping his promises? Romney is at least a moderate. Petraus was a traitor, disgraced General who shared National security secrets with his mistress., O’Bannon may be a good businessman, but not a good man , alt-right (neonazi). Does not belong in T cabinet. He should stay just a friend to T. Rudy is not qualified, unfit, and too old, and he’s old school. He’s the one that came up with stop and frisk, a disaster of a program, made things worse than better. Since it was stopped and new mayor elected, crime in NYC has dropped substantially. Like to see it stay that way. Kellyanne needs to hear the words, “You’re Fired” from Mr. Trump. Can’t have your people going rogue like she did. Made him look foolish, she needs to go bye bye.

    1. tatka150 says

      Romney is the representative of the establishment
      As soon as he will get this high position, he and the rest of the old rusty GOP senile thugs will start to ruin Trump’s presidency and finally will kick him out.

      He can’t nominate a backstabber
      If Trump isn’t not smart enough to see further then his nose, he should listen to the Conway who sealed his election.
      Trump is acting ridiculously

      1. mariethomson says

        Trump called everyone names but they will all work with him now–even Cruz who was the last hold out. He was much more vociferous in his denouncement of Trump than Romney.

        1. hangem'high says

          Crow is pretty hard to swallow even if Trump knows how to prepare it? Trump Crow won’t be the talk of his administration, but it might be on the menu at the last supper?

    Romney is a back stabber, I personally would not trust him on anything!

    1. mariethomson says

      Turmp stabbed a lot of backs– He knows how to play act to get votes then he knows now he has to govern he needs the A team at his side–the best of his opponents and the best of his allies.

  11. Jon says

    I for one support Kellyanne on this….Since day one I have been a avid, outspoken Trump supporter and still am. However in this case I strongly disagree with Trump to consider the Backstabbing Romney for SOS. Romney did everything he could to derail the Trump movement during the campaign and showed by his action that he can not be trusted with such a high level position. I have a lot of respect for Trump and understand his desire to promote Romney to “help heal wounds” but I can assure you Romney is not one to instill this trust in….I believe Trump will do everything possible to “Make America Great Again”….but it will not happen with Romney as SOS…

    Mr/President Elect Trump: “We, the people” listened to you and now it is your turn to listen to “We, the people” when “we’ say don’t do this but do this instead, It is time to stop talking and listen and go by what the majority want. This is what democracy is about – act on the majority not on a “pay for play” agenda. COMPRENDE. I am one of the deplorable Latinos who voted for you.

    You lefties only hope there is a problem. The only problem this country had at this moment is Democrats failure to honor America and that is a fatal disease.

  17. Jim Samaras says

    Romney will not be the choice! What’s wrong with keeping friends close and enemies closer?

      Makes one wonder who if not Mitt could be worse? I think we’re being Trolled. They defiantly need to take away Trumps Tweeter account!

    Well, if we are being inclusive, let’s nominate Jill Stein as crone of state and Hillary Clinton as mud hen of state. Bill Clinton could be the Banty rooster.

    Then we could let Trump be Trump.

    Romney is all for himself, There are many well qualified Trump supporters!! why reward with such high honor a person who betrayed him?

    1. Francine Ellen Carraher says

      Because it would cast a very positive light on Trump as being a person willing to forgive and forget, and work with others to solve all our issues and problems.

    The SOS is definitely a position which should be held by someone who is strong and not be willing to sell favors ! Let’s not fudge this position up by putting someone there without the cojones to get the job done Negotiating from a position of Strength is always best !!

    And, of course, we all know how concerned little Mika is about President-elect trumps well-being and we all know how likely it is that anyone “inside” the Trump team would give the b%$^h any time or info.

  22. Askjrsk says

    That’s trouble? That’s a team working for what’s best for America. Trump is considering ROMNEY. Many are wary of ROMNEY. Trump will make a decision in his time. Kelly Ann is superb with the dumb shit questions she gets from stupid people employed by networks. Most like Anderson Vanderbilt Cooper are a household joke, certainly not taken seriously. Cuomo oh God
    for real? TRUMP is so fat ahead of the game , its as if these people want to interrupt Trump. Disgusting!

  23. jackhy says

    Romney has not come out for Trump since the verdict and he was very vocal in the year before the election, so I don’t see him as a loyalist at all! Newt Gingrich would be a smarter and more logical choice for this vital position and Rudy would be a back up choice before Mitt!

  24. Spunky says

    Mitt needs to stay out of the WH – needs to go away

      Well I believe not everybody in Washington is a pedophile, and finding someone who is America first is few and far in-between, or so it seems?
