    June 2016: "Obama referenced Trump's promise to bring back jobs to the United States when talking about manufacturing. 'What magic wand do you have?'"

    March 2018: US Steel CEO on calling back 500 workers idled in Illinois. "This feels like the beginning of a renaissance for us."

    What magic wand does he have? The magic wand of not believing in the primacy of federal governments and the regulatory state.

    This is what is called a white-washing of Trump's intended use of "Mexican" in reference to Judge Curiel. Well done.

    SoKo Natl Sec adviser:
    "I explained to President Trump that his leadership and maximum pressure policy together w/international solidarity brought us to this juncture...Kim Jong un said he is committed to denuclearization & will refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests."

    Sounds like BHO may have a bad case of wand envy

    If this turns out to be anything more than more stalling, only to return to the old ways after 2 years, I will be very surprised....BUT also very impressed.

    Great news on the economy. All those folks that quit looking for work over the last decade are coming back to work. Those declining unemployment numbers were very misleading.

    The Rexit is upon us

    Today, the NYT and other lefties are grabbing their peepees and freaking out over Trump firing Tillerson (Muh Tillerson!)

    Back in the day, they were freaking out when he hired him (RUSSIA! RUSSIA! RUSSIA!)(yet they had little interest when a previous SOS sold her office to the highest bidder)

    How are we supposed to account for how our easily our media goes from claiming Tillerson’s appointment was proof of their Russia conspiracy to claiming his dismissal is proof of their Russia conspiracy theory?

    Dems originally called the Tillerson pick 'OUTRAGEOUS!"
    Today, they mourn his loss

    So which is it?
    Is Tillerson is a "Putin stooge" who has no business being America’s top diplomat?
    or
    Is it that Trump fired Tillerson because Tillerson hates Putin and was too tough on Russia?
    Make up your minds

    I suggest, "The First 2919 Days". I did not account for Leap Years.

    I was mostly joking, but in that case, I believe context mattered. In the case of the school shooter at Parkland, the President was saying that based on all the tips given about his mental state, there should have been mechanisms to allow law enforcement to, yes, take the guns, and then evaluate him. That is what I believe was meant by that statement.

    Who'd have expected that Tillerson was actually advocating for a tougher stance against Russia compared to DJT? It's almost as if DJT has a soft spot for Putin. Someone might want to investigate that.

    Tillerson was in over his head, nearly half as much as his boss.

    Sometimes I wonder if you really believe the nonsense you spout or just love trolling.
