In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

  1. Work work work…love it. While I dont think the optics of heading off to Florida each weekend are the best, if the man gets his work done by 6pm on Friday, he earned some downtime, which may keep his engines roaring…


    1. Agree. It would be great to see him make use of Camp David too. Perhaps later in the spring? I realize Trump is not, and never will be, a “regular” politician, but it would be advantageous to take note of the optics in this instance and adjust accordingly from time to time, IMO.

      1. Trump in the woods at rustic Camp David…??? LMAO!!! Trump dose not do “rustic, or woods, or camps”.

        Thats going to be more awkward than seeing Obama up there

    2. I remember Nancy Pelosi flying home to San Francisco every weekend on her own AF jet which is provided for the House Leader. I also remember her racking up a pretty hefty bar bill (300k/yr?) also and we the people picked up her tab.

  2. Trump’s schedule is always interesting.

    God bless him for meeting with Cummings. Unfortunately Cummings will most likely just use it as fuel for the many fires he sets.

      1. Elijah Cummings and Maxine Waters, two of the Democrats prized offerings. That is a real pair to draw to. At least he doesn’t have to meet with them together.

  3. What’s very interesting in Trump’s schedules is who he is meeting with—today it’s Elijah Cummings, for example. Lindsey Graham yesterday, etc.

    He also met with the AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka very recently. (Trumka gave Trump the highest praise for his recent Address to the Congress speech).

    So we can see a pattern now. President Trump is inviting his worst critics to come in and have a chat. He’s reaching out, trying to build coalitions, trying to bring people over to his way of thinking. That’s a big part of what executives do, and he’s doing it, and doing it personally. He’s not sending out hatchet men to whisper in the ears of the media to try to destroy his critics, as Obama routinely did (and still does).

    Compare Trump’s approach to working with others to the hapless Obama’s habit of constantly vilifying, usurping, backstabbing his “enemies”, and trying to destroy their personal lives as well as that of their families. Obama never understood, and never will understand, the power of building coalitions with those who initially oppose you, something he should have learned in the 8th grade.

  4. Hopefully Cruz can persuade Trump to get off the RynoCare train. Trump signs off on this half measure and the Republicans own Obamacare. We will have been duped once again by the GOPe promising true Repeal and Reform and the Democrats walk away without a mark on them.

    Also it looks like Pence really believes the RynoCare plan is the waya to go. That is more than disappointing. We lose an advocate against the Rinos.

    1. The Heritage Foundation is advocating a complete, total repeal of ObamaCare:

      “Many Americans seeking health insurance on the individual market will notice no significant difference between the Affordable Care Act (i.e., Obamacare) and the American Health Care Act,” said Michael Needham, CEO of Heritage Action, the political arm of the conservative think tank Heritage Foundation. “That is bad politics and, more importantly, bad policy.”

      I agree with you and them. Kill the damn thing, lock stock and barrel and replace it in its entirety.

    2. This replacement bill is a mess. I hope Trump doesn’t sign it. It seems the RINOs are trying to get rid of Medicare. And I need medicare when I retire soon. Why are they doing this! This new bill is gonna make my insurance go up even higher since I’m in an older age bracket. Ryan has got to go.
