    That's like throwing out Oklahomans like DKR because you didn't like what Switzer did.

    I voted for Romney, W twice, McCain. I regret all of those votes. All Rino’s. Both sides are corrupt! Only Reagan and Trump truly fought the good fight against corruption in Government! I know Trump stepped on some toes! Look what he had to put up with!

    Reagan. LOL. He couldn't make the main debate stage in 2021. He was tough on Israel. He tucked and ran from Lebanon. He supported common sense gun laws. He facilitated amnesty to illegals. He SOLD ARMS to IRAN. IRAN!!! Hell, he would be a Democrat in our current times.

    PS: Raised taxes three times.

    What if the fake knowledge is emanating from the office of the President?

    This goes to the core of the problem. I personally believe they are all lying, just like all the famous actresses used to sleep their way to the lead part. We just don't want to believe it, except if it's the other guy.

    So, for instance, if you CHOOSE to be a politician and you know FOR A FACT that the other side is lying and it's working, what do you do? Well, if you're a ruthlessly ambitious narcissist, then you lie too.

    This is not to take up for Trump. It's a comment on the saying, "Don't hate the player, hate the game."

    So what do you hate?

    What if the POTUS's son is caught on tape repeatedly using the N word? Should the media cover it? Let's see Bubba et al spin it.

    They will cover it but only nominally. It'll get the obligatory mention but get quickly pushed aside. If it had been the son or daughter of a Republican, we'd never hear the end of it. And of course, we'd hear, "children only say what they hear at home from their parents." (By the way, anyone with kids or has a good memory of being a kid knows that's BS.)

    We have only had 5 months of Biden the Insane, so I have to think the jury is still out regarding your question.

    People don't trust the MSM anymore. Haven't for a long time, they've lost ALL credibility

    That's why I pay little attn to tweets or links SH and bubba posts up. Days, weeks, months later many are proven to be false

    It's also called lying through your teeth

    Go ahead and fall for the BS. I don't stop fools from jumping off cliffs.

    Yet another story and narrative you guys jumped on has been proven false. That's the story now

    The US Media is exactly what libs think Fox News is and no matter how many times you point out the numerous errors/lies they'll ignore you. You know why? Because the media tells them what they want to hear.

    What a Tool that idiot is. The best line was when he said to Camerota, "help yourself". How she let that slide without the obvious comeback is a comedic tragedy.

    A few things about this. First, I'm surprised they actually gave a big on-the-air explanation and rehashed everything. They have so many talking heads on these stupid shows that if they had just acted normally when he came back on, I doubt most of their viewers would have thought, "wait, isn't that the dude who beat-off in front of his coworkers back in October?" We would have thought that, but most CNN viewers don't follow this crap that closely. To them, he's just another dorky, self-important commentator spouting off about politics with some legal spin attached to it. They're a dime-a-dozen on CNN. He's not even that good at it.

    Second, I think this thing is being handled stupidly and was from the beginning. Nobody wants to see a dude doing what he was doing. I understand that. However, the idea that he needs therapy and should have to self-flagellate (more than he already has) is kinda absurd. What part of this was really offensive? It's not that he was not "master of his domain." These are outlets that celebrate far more perverse and f'ed up things, and he didn't do anything that everyone in that meeting hasn't done themselves. It's that they could see him. Well, I think it's clear that that was an accident - sloppiness with technology, not evil or deranged. Some punishment and better training with the technology? Sure. Demonization or getting canned? No. Let's put it this way. I don't want to see Nikole Hannah Jones play with herself (SE Cupp? Maybe.), but that would offend me less and has greater merit and usefulness than the 1619 Project does.

    The most dangerous threat to America is the liberal media which have become propaganda for the liberal left.

    And when it was pointed out the Left shrieked that Republicans (Re: Trump) was trying to suppress the truth when we all know they were lying and displaying extreme bias in their daily mission to attack Trump and not see the merits of any of his policies. They found even the most sub-atomic objectional word or act and blew it up as if that was huge, similar to taking a relatively flat line chart trend and narrowing the scale to one small movement an making it appear to be a high %.

    I don't buy that story whatsoever. My theory is that they were going to expand the perimeter so that area would need to be cleared. Makes sense. Especially if you're a President hiding in the basement. If they were smart bureaucrats they would have said, "hey, just spitballing here, but, let's do that after the curfew and before protesters get out the next day, you know, save on the tear gas budget and let the Bureau of Prisons folks hammer on folks and free them to randomly kidnap people off the street in their Grand Caravans. They're really good at that". Barr or someone in power said, "no we need it done today during the day" fully knowing that they wanted to clear out the park for the photo op prior to the new fence going up. The commanders of the various police units had no need to know why they were clearing the park. Then, in walks bad orange man to hold a Bible that likely burned his wee little hands.

    I mean this is far less fanciful that the "stop the steal" BS and Bill Barr was involved in using a federal subpoena to get the phone records of political opponent's AND their family's and then putting a gag order on Apple.

    Meth is fun!

    Also, the kidnapping of protesters really seemed to just happen in Portland. I was just riffing. :)

    Romney beat Obama by a bigger margin in Texas than Bone Spur beat Hillary or Biden

    Texas is Romney Country!!!

    the media has not given that a lot of play, have they? Neither have the slobbering lemmings who worship Bone Spur.

    This interruption in our normal discourse brought to you by Huisache

    Please resume your normal slobbering

    Romney is no different than McCain, Biden, Sanders, Boener, Pelosi or Clinton. They are politicians there solely to pad the pockets of themselves and their cronies. The sooner all Americans realize that the better. How else does someone as poor as Bernie Sanders become a multi millionaire on his government salary?

    All you can say in Romney's favor versus the others is he was pretty rich before running for office

    Bubba you have usually come across, in my opinion only of course, to me as reasonable but perhaps a bit dissoluted. Now I think you are more like my wife in that no way will you hear her giving Obama nor Biden any positive commentary. In fact she, as do you with “orange man”, goes above and beyond to find criticism. I do think it’s funny how you criticize his nicknames but you have numerous nicknames for him.

    Thanks.

    Slight difference. I'm not the leader of the free world (although that position now may reside elsewhere). I'm also not the first president to be impeached twice with "yeah" votes from my own party or the first one term president to lose the White House, the House and the Senate. I'm just a dude with "Bubba" in my handle, with a quasi-disgraced octogenarian football coach as my Avatar, admitting in public that I might be a closeted lesbian. I've also never grabbed a woman by her genitals against her will or used tic-tacs as part of my MO when assaulting women. So, just a smidge different. :)
