If any cabinet position can use new blood, it’s Secretary of State

Of all of Donald Trump's cabinet decisions, Secretary of State has been the most contentious. All of the four or five remaining candidates have been attacked to some degree, including a barrage of attacks on Mitt Romney from within the Trump camp itself.

Trump does right thing by addressing urban issues in acceptance speech

By John Ruberry The mainstream media, which of course is no fan of the Republican Party and its nominee Donald Trump, in what must have been an act of collusion, almost immediately dismissed what I thought was an A- acceptance address as a "dark speech." Oh, why just an A- from me? I thought Trump's … Continue reading Trump does right thing by addressing urban issues in acceptance speech

Ronald Reagan clearly loved America

By John Ruberry The poet called Miss Liberty's torch "the lamp beside the golden door." Well, that was the entrance to America, and it still is. And now you really know why we're here tonight. The glistening hope of that lamp is still ours. Every promise, every opportunity, is still golden in this land. And … Continue reading Ronald Reagan clearly loved America

Giuliani is “mostly” right

By Steve Eggleston By now, you probably have heard about former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani's statement at a private fundraiser that he believes that President Barack Obama loves America.

Rudy Channels Joe Wilson

So off went the Emperor in procession under his splendid canopy. Everyone in the streets and the windows said, "Oh, how fine are the Emperor's new clothes! Don't they fit him to perfection?

Bridgegate = IRS The GOP is over the target

How horrible that in view of the ongoing IRS scandal where a government agency was … Continue reading Bridgegate = IRS The GOP is over the target

Did Rudy just deak the Democratic Senate?

One of the principles in any kind of game or warfare is to, whenever possible, convince your opponents of something that isn't true. A few days ago Rudy Giuliani (who has as much chance of getting the GOP nomination as I have) advised the GOP to avoid the topic of "Gay" Marriage "I think it's … Continue reading Did Rudy just deak the Democratic Senate?

This is why I love Rudy

He calls out Morning Joe over covering for Obama and isn't shy about it. You have 3-4 to one going after him, Joe is sitting back, but Mika, Barnicle, Ratigan, and Cramer are all going after him and they aren't laying a glove on him. In fact Ratigan seems to be conceding points! Money quote … Continue reading This is why I love Rudy

I think i just saw what will be an iconic image on Morning Joe

After enduring attacks by Arianna "I get invited to the right parties" Huffington for his failing as Mayor during what was supposed to be a segment about his endorsement of Marco Rubio in Florida.

It’s not every day you get to ask Rudolph Giuliani…

...questions concerning a political race but if you are a Sicilian in the north end you fit in like a glove. Even a small(?) blogger can get some questions in. Once Stacy and I got on the ground we separated a bit. I tended to notice the Italians who actually live in these narrow streets. … Continue reading It’s not every day you get to ask Rudolph Giuliani…
