If he isn't on board, and he PUBLICLY opposes the President - who's only doing what got him elected - I suppose, we'd be saying adios amigo to this guy pretty soon. 

 

Meh.  If this is true.....now I understand why looney John McCain was so enthusiastically in favor of this guy. McCain's reaction should've been a red flag.

 

 

McCain better hope the midterms go good for the democrats or any power he has is gone.  Make no bones about it, this is likely mccain's last term.

Sen McCain is part of the problem...he should have retired after a fine career years ago.   No wonder he resents a fat cat like Trump just swooping in and taking the presidency he never had.   Bitter ?

I agree with u, McCain should go and retire and spend all that money he and his wife made from the war in the M.E.

Ya, war was a very profitable experience for McCain. Unlike your draft avoiding hero, McCain was seriously wounded and spent six years in a North Vietnamese prison camp. If anyone does, he deserves a honourable retirement.

Let's check back on the confirmation hearings, with Education nominee who hates public schools, Betsy DeVos.  If Rex Tillerson's hearing was the Titanic, then DeVos might have been the Hindenburg!

Education Secretary Betsy deVos has joined in on the "alternative facts" craze with her own unique touch, "alternative history"!

Quote

 

After meeting with university leaders at the White House with President Donald Trump on Monday, Ms DeVos released a statement illustrating her administration’s proposals to help develop “underserved communities”. In it, she said Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) were “real pioneers when it comes to school choice."

“They are living proof that when more options are provided to students, they are afforded greater access and greater quality," she added. “Their success has shown that more options help students flourish."

 

In the real world, black colleges were established in segregation states because the federal government required that black students have access to higher education. Black colleges were established so that these states could meet that requirement without having to let black people onto white campuses.

But on Planet Betsy, the black colleges were "pioneers of school choice!" giving "more options!" to black students.  Trying to reimagine segregation-era establishment of segregated campuses as creating a vigorous, thriving competition for black scholars is absurd. It's like trying to spin separate "whites" and "coloreds" water fountains as giving "more options!" to thirsty people. It's moronic in a way that defies description.

In the real real world, HBCU's were also established in states without segregation.

He was a shitting pilot and a spoiled brat and his fellow pilots did not like him. That is from a guy I knew that was a F-14 pilot and a top gun trainer.

You also prefer war heroes that weren't captured?

I wonder where that plaque that Harry Truman had that said "The buck stops here"? Obviously it is not in the current Whitehouse.

 

It is in the Harry S. Truman presidential library at Independence MO, of course.    And it doesn't mean what most people think it means:

An empty promise of security and prosperity for all. Oh well,m it's not like the bar for yet another Trump speech was very high going in and Congress sounded like a typical crowd of cheering rubes.

The widows and orphans were a nice touch.

Trump never promised election reform like somebody else in North America.

Hillary tried to rig the election. The media then turned it around and voila...Hillary was off the hook.

Did you forget? Nah...you didn't forget.

.Trump's speech is for the PEOPLE and let's see how the Democrats are going to help the COUNTRY or be self-centered and only worry about  losing their jobs and Trump achieving his goals for the country. Now is the time for the Supporters of the Dems, to tell them to Try and work with Trump for the better of the country and  that will give back the respectability the USA lost.
