re: FOX News Commentators loved his speech too - N.O. via West-Cal
"I mean if you were completely ignorant to the history of the Clintons it was a solid speech." A fair point. I was commenting on the speech itself. But Hillary is such a known commodity that a "get to know the candidate" speech, even a very good one, isn't likely to help much. I loved the speech ...

re: Nancy Pelosi: Clinton struggling with white men because of gods, gays, and guns - N.O. via West-Cal
Even worse than the standard liberal arrogance! This is the first time I have seen religion reduced so efficiently into abortion rights. This doesn't make much sense if polling is to believed, as it shows only a "modest gender gap" with 54% of women being pro-choice compared to 46% of men. But Nancy...

re: Michelle Obama's line: "Don't let anyone ever tell you this country isn't great" - N.O. via West-Cal
"how arrogant" this is precisely how Mrs. Obama's comment struck me in 2008. I went on to vote for Obama that year - a mistake I readily admit - but this comment bugged me. I remember discussing how irked I was by her comment with a very liberal friend and he thoughtfully but surprisingly to me d...

re: USC/LA Times tracking poll shows Hillary Clinton getting negative bounce - N.O. via West-Cal
"Doubt he did last night too." I know you are joking but as one who thought Bill's speech was very good, bordering on outstanding, I am really interested in the numbers that might reflect a bump or the absence of one in the wake of it. Here's my thinking: it almost doesn't matter what anyone say...

re: People voting 3rd party are living in an alternate universe....wasting your vote - N.O. via West-Cal
I generally agree with you, but it is difficult to do so when it is brutally hard to tell which of the candidates would be better for the country. As one who simply has no reason to vote for Hillary and who disagrees with Trump on a number of issues - and has concerns about that his temperament isn'...

re: I'm baffled by the appeal of Elizabeth Warren - N.O. via West-Cal
I think with her you truly have to be a leftist to get it. With many pols, say Obama, you can get the appeal even if you don't agree with him. With Warren, agreeing with her is a prereq....

re: Michelle Obama crushed it last night - N.O. via West-Cal
I did not get to see the speech but heard it was very good and well received. I also heard that, fortunately, she has been proud of America for approximately the last eight years of her adult life and that the US is now the greatest country on earth, presumably thanks to her husband's presidency....

re: Duke's entry in Senate race helps democrats - N.O. via West-Cal
I would have agreed with CT some years ago but I hope that Duke has been so discredited over the years that he won't pull enough support to matter. SFP's comment is intriguing; Duke could give Repubs someone to use as a foil. Of course, what I wish most is that Duke would disappear from the politica...

re: Scott Walker Says Paul Ryan is in real trouble - N.O. via West-Cal
"Well, one thing is for sure, if Trump wins...Ryan won't be Speaker for long. Ryan's Globalism in on the wane; Nationalism on the rise. Seems like I remember something about Newt being able to assume Speakership. That would be ideal for Trump." What the heck? ...

re: Ben Carson with the win re: Melania Trump - N.O. via West-Cal
"The demonization of Hillary using a quote from Saul Alinsky about mythology was pitiful too, especially with him knowing he has the ears of a bunch of right-wing literalists." I cringed a little on this, as well. Hillary should be made to account for her radical influences, but the Alinsky refer...

re: Part of Junior Trump's speech lifted from an article - N.O. via West-Cal
"I don't see anything wrong with it. He used an idea that was previously used. If we didn't do this, there would be no speeches." Agreed. We all use metaphors, ideas, and figures of speech that we appropriated from elsewhere. In real time last night, I wondered if the elevator portion of the spee...

"There is a difference between immigrants that wanted to come here and those that families were raised in poverty during Jim Crow. I am 26, my dad went to a segregated high school. This isn't a far away past. The attitudes that created those laws didn't end in the 1960s." Those of us who beli...
