from the phone of DJT:
The ABC/Washington Post Poll, even though almost 40% is not bad at this time, was just about the most inaccurate poll around election time!

Cry baby: 1) Trump's current 36% in the ABC/WaPo poll is not "almost 40%" - it is almost 35% however, 2) anything less than 55% 6 months in is terrible (IIRC Clinton had low approval - 50% - at 6 months but not as low as Trump - is Clinton now Trump's standard?, Ford sucked too but that's a special case), 3) Trump's fave poll, Rasmussen, has Trump under water by 14pts (43-57), 4) the Real Clear Politics average of 10 polls shows Trump under water 14.5pts (40.2-54.7), and 5) regardless of the ABC/WaPo poll's election-time performance, their results are only slightly worse than the RCP average AND the trend is what's significant - in the ABC/WaPo polling, Trump's positives have declined and his negatives increased, as with other polls.

Like so:

Paul Krugman had an opinion piece in the NY Times yesterday on Cruz's healthcare "fix" called "Ted Cruz's Giant Leap into the Known." It concluded with a bit of a mea culpa when Krugman wrote that he should have been saying all along that the Republican plan is all about going back to pre-Obamacare days:
Which brings me to a point I haven’t seen emphasized: whereas the creation of the ACA was a leap into the unknown, Trumpcare – or maybe we should call it Cruzcare – is a leap into the known. Before the ACA, most states allowed insurers to discriminate based on medical history. Many also restricted access to Medicaid as much as they could. So we have a very good idea what health care in America would look like if the BCRA passes: it would look like health care in unregulated, low-aid states pre-ACA.

Hyperbole?

HHS Secretary Tom Price, today, on insurance company opposition to Trumpcare:
It’s really perplexing, especially from the insurance companies, because all they have to do is dust off how they did business before Obamacare.

Jesus wept, they not only do it, they not only admit it, they brag about it!

Besides not getting that they and their way of thinking are a minority, he also sounds surprised that Obama(Care) taught even insurance companies how insurance works best? :-P (Sure, they also don't mind the gubmental infusions...)

Meanwhile, the disgusting orange fatbody flies AF-1 from DC to NJ for a {!#%@} golf tourney this weekend.

If I had been Dolfy, I would have shot any pretentious {!#%@} that either golfs or smokes cigars.... do both, and the entire family starts filling potholes on the interstate system. Sounds tough? Well then imagine Christie out there toting and lifting next Wednesday when it's supposed to be 94*. He'll either be in fighting trim or on a slab... either way, who cares?

Looks like he's parked in front of the teevee - therefore tweet nothings:

"Most politicians would have gone to a meeting like the one Don jr attended in order to get info on an opponent. That's politics!"


:hmm: He must be talking about his Repugnians friends. Besides, Jr is not a politician. Is that pointing at other participants?

Who Will Protect Them? - Where was Obama to help them!?

Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow now says the Secret Service, in addition to ensuring the physical security of candidates, should protect the candidate, the candidate’s advisors and even the candidate’s family from their own potential criminal wrongdoing...


Good thing Jr and Jared had the experienced Manafort and Priebus at their side way back when. Who knows what kind of trouble those kids* could have gotten themselves into.


* (Jr is 39 and Kushner is 36. Much too young to be burdened with any kind of experience, even tho they have been cheating leading businesses since their My Little Pony days...)

Thanks to Bill Moyers for the complete timeline back to 1979, with some gaps yet to be filled in.

Not the worst thing Trump does, which is damning with faint praise.

For the record, this is Trump, verbatim, attempting to explain Chinese currency manipulation.

“No. 1, he’s not, since my time. You know, very specific formula. You would think it’s like generalities, it’s not. They have—they’ve actually—their currency’s gone up. So it’s a very, very specific formula.”

And, on the same subject, McConnell always looks hunched, sallow and dyspeptic... like he's always trying to talk over a mild belch... Or maybe it was more notable today during his arse-licking of McCain...

Many news organizations are reporting that with the defections of Lee and Moran Trumpcare is dead. McConnell is returning to repeal now, replace later as the route forward: "Regretfully, it is now apparent that the effort to repeal and immediately replace the failure of Obamacare will not be successful. . . . In the coming days, the Senate will vote to take up the House bill with the first amendment in order being what a majority of the Senate has already supported in 2015 and that was vetoed by then-President Obama: a repeal of Obamacare with a two-year delay to provide for a stable transition period."

Great leadership throughout from Orange Anus.

Interestingly Lee is a far right loon and Moran is close to McConnell and gave right-wing talking points for his opposing the healthcare bill - along with Paul, they add up to enough votes to sink the bill, meaning: with the exception of Collins, Republican "moderates" keep their reputation for craven cowardice and ineffectuality intact.

Thank you. On top of the healthcare news, which surprised me greatly, this is another comforting piece. As with healthcare, I expect the Republicans will pass SOMETHING, unless their Right Wing is completely looney. It's only when Democrats have some power that Republicans feel enabled to do completely irresponsible things, for which they can blame the Democrats.

This is a typical Trump supporter. No one doubts that he can read a script off a teleprompter, as he was doing here. Anyone who thinks he wrote those words, or that he has the slightest inkling of their vacuity, is beyond the reach of reason. Can't these people ever learn to tell when he's reading someone else's propaganda for political effect and when he's attempting to grapple with policy problems in his own inept way? The difference is immediately recognizable.

That's the part of all this that eases and soothes me the most. McConnell simply DOES NOT DARE do the things he would have to do to get the Right Wing on board.

So, does he now ACTUALLY realize that he needs to get some Democrat votes? Will he be willing to do what is necessary to get them? Will that cost him yet more Right-wing votes? (Yes, certainly.) Does that mean he can't govern at all? (Seems so.) But it's an ill wind that blows nobody good. McConnell is now making Paul Ryan look like a political genius.

Apparently Trump was meeting with some Republican senators for dinner at the White House to shame and cajole them into passing Trumpcare ( “He basically said, if we don’t do this, we’re in trouble. That we have the Senate, House and White House and we have to do it or we’re going to look terrible") when news came through that it was dead.

The House budget proposal, just released, calls for $200bn of cuts including reductions in safety net programs (Medicare, Social Security) Trump promised not to touch; additional Medicare cuts long championed by Paul Ryan; a bigger increase in military spending than Trump's draft budget; repeal of financial protections passed after 2008's crash; tax reform; and, er, savings from Trumpcare. The budget assumes an unrealistic 2.6% growth rate of the economy. The legislation is to be moved via "reconciliation" so that the budget can be passed on simply majority votes in both houses of Congress.

"World peace is certainly an ideal worth striving for; in Hitler's opinion it will be realizable only when one power, the racially best one, has attained complete and uncontested supremacy. That can then provide a sort of world police, seeing to it at the same time that the most valuable race is guaranteed the necessary living space. And if no other way is open to them, the lower races will have to restrict themselves accordingly."

He and Trump have said that the plan is to repeal Obamacare with a 2-year time-delay fuse and later pass something in its place. You know, the approach they abandoned in the winter because they couldn't find votes for it. (Because of reconciliation rules, straight repeal would probably need 60 votes in the Senate.)

The Swamp Creature, Trump on corrupt deals and political BS (that is, Junior's infamous meeting): "Most politicians would have gone to a meeting like the one Don jr attended in order to get info on an opponent. That's politics!"

Er, no, most politicians wouldn't have attended but what happened to big, brave, bold swamp draining?
