As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama: Hillary More Qualified than Anyone, Ever to be President

Really? More qualifed that George Washington?

Hillary is prepared to be president in the way that most government employees in Washington are prepared for the job: They’ve shown up for work.

In Washington, what happens is, you occupy a post, you spend some time in it, and then people figure it’s time for you to move up to the next highest position. And you move along until pretty soon you find yourself in a senior position, and everyone invites you to parties and thinks you must be great. You might even get to be Secretary of Somethng, who knows?

Hillary Clinton was first lady, then a senator, then secretary of state. She did nothing impressive in any of those positions. But she showed up for work — as in, “she traveled more miles than any other secretary of state.”

And so now she must be ready for the White House! But she’s not ready at all. Although Obama is right, she is better qualified than he was, though that’s saying not-too-much because he wasn’t the least bit qualified at all.

Obama also bumped into another truth: “She never, ever quits,” he said of Clinton. That’s correct, and that’s been a big problem for the country.

Live Stream || Donald Trump and Mike Pence in Scranton, Pennsylvania

Thought you might want to check out the Don and Mike Show.

Yes, that was a national radio show, you may remember. Now it’s a syndicated campaign roadshow.

Trump and Pence are in Pennsylvania because, unlike other Republican presidential tickets, they can win it. Trump’s appeal to blue collar whites, among others, is such that Hillary will have to defend lots of territory Democrats don’t normally have to worry about.

I really don’t get these articles I’m seeing by people saying “Hey, wait a minute, Trump could actually win this election, Democrats take notice!”

Of course he can win. I think he’s favored to win. Nobody likes Hillary, and Trump is showing more discipline while still being Trump. Tuesday, he spoke to the Veterans of Foreign Wars, used a teleprompter, didn’t go off on a hundred tangents, and had actual, detailed proposals about how he’s going to fix the problems at the Veterans Affairs Administration.

Yeah, Hillary has a problem.

Scheduled to begin at 3 pm ET.

Update and Correction: DNC Officials Dismissive of Holocaust

The original story printed here suggests that DNC staffer Ryan Banfill poked fun at the Holocaust by stating ironically,  “This is about remembering the Holocaust. Never forget.” Ryan, who is married to a Jewish woman and raising his kids Jewish, has written me what appears to be a heartfelt note stating unquivocally and passionately that his… Continue Reading
