  1. Danny Davis (D-Ill.).
    “I would jump off the Willis Tower, which is the tallest building in Chicago, to support Hillary Clinton,” Davis told The Hill.

    If only the other 55 would join him!

    • My mom would say to me, “If everyone else jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge would you do it?”

      I guess Danny Davis would. and purposely belly flop.

    • like Judith implied I didnt know that some people able to get paid $5090 in a few weeks on the internet . look at this web-site>>> TEC80.COM

  2. I like Rand Paul. He seems to be smart, thoughtful, prudent. Any chances for him ?
    I guess probably not. Too good for politics. No media circus horse.

    • Many conservatives like him here. I could vote for him, Mike Lee, Ted Cruz or several others. The prevailing thought right now is that Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin would be a candidate acceptable to both conservatives and the establishment. He has proven himself fiscally smart and successful, and he has shown that he can weather attacks from the left.

      Unlike Hillary Clinton he is principled. He’s not a glamor puss, but neither is she. He would not have as much international experience as she, but all she has for her ‘legacy’ as SoS is Benghazi and getting into the Guinness Book of Records for clocking more flight hours than any other SoS.

      • P.S. The tightest spot for Walker right now with conservatives is how he responds to the amnesty, aka immigration, issue. He needs to come out for American workers.

  3. Obama Hikes Minimum Wage for Contractors:

    Ed Henry night want to ask Carney to explain his remarks from last December at tomorrow’s daily briefing:


    In December, Reps. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., and Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., co-chairmen of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, wrote the president urging him to take the “bold step” of signing an executive order to increase wages for federal contractors, reported.

    At the time, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney issued a lukewarm response when asked about the lawmakers’ request, according to the report.

    “This has always been done legislatively. And it has been done with support from Republicans and not just Democrats in the past,” Carney said.

    • Scottso, today I heard one of the most popular radiohosts on our public talk radio ( Thomas Nordegren, even known as Tiger Woods formerly father in law ) say that he would not stay up and listen to the speech. TN is known as a big Obama fan. He thought it was too sad that his hero had failed so badly.
      So even here, audiences are lost.

    • I do want to watch the GOP response though. It’ll be interesting to watch the left go bonkers over a woman, a successful woman, a mother of three, first in her family to graduate college, and wow, she’s a Republican. Wendy Davis must be forming her Twitter feed already. Mark my words, the left will call her every name in the book.

  4. Not only do we have to hear about the SOTU over and over again, but he’s going out on the road so he can read it again and again. What a putz. Why don’t you stay in Washington and actually work with Congress on something?
