All presidents fail at something sooner or later, but I don’t remember a time when we were so determined to make it happen. Our expectations for fixing the problems dumped in Trump’s lap should be pretty low. There is a very long history of failed presidential leadership and unsolved problems before him.
What could President Trump’s payoff possibly be for getting rid of his attorney general? So far that question has no answer. An attorney general doesn’t have to be a president’s best friend, but the dirty work they do is a critical asset.
I don’t recall Barack Obama making many speeches to the NRA. Maybe he did, but somehow I doubt it. He liked talking to the press and rubbing elbows with celebrities at White House bashes. Obama hung around people who helped him look good.
Too bad America’s left isn’t more militaristic. Missiles and uniforms would add some impact to this year’s May Day rallies. Russia is way ahead of our liberals on this one. How can you celebrate May Day without a show of force?
There are some things you can’t do if your job is talking to the press, especially if your audience and the surrounding real estate are filled with hostiles. For starters, you can’t talk about Hitler. It’s like trying to explain away the “N” word.
Now that everyone is rejecting fake news whether or not it is real, why are we still so obsessed with words that mean even less? Whether we are talking about inappropriate remarks at a Hollywood awards show or Trump’s latest Twittering, Americans hang on the words of prominent people as if they mean something.
American families know what they need to worry about. Zika is not on the list. What families don’t need is to be faced with a public health emergency that is just a cleverly disguised political crisis.
Families don’t need Capitol Hill’s Zika threat
Congress is selling Zika to the public for reasons that don’t have a lot to do with protecting our health.
