Nancy Pelosi in all likelihood will be Speaker again. Good and bad.
I admire her governmental skills. She knows how to run her shop. Democrats generally stay in line, follow her direction.
Her shortcoming is one most Democrats seem to have. They are lousy fighters. Lack the killer instinct. Though she and her party may know legislative success is the goal, they are ineffective in getting there.
Democrats want to be “Congresspersons.” Gentlemanly and lady like. Republicans on the other hand, want to “win.” That means playing down and dirty.
The Democrats have to learn how to play down and dirty. The end in this instance does justify the means. Democrats must learn to hit the opposition where it hurts. In the balls to use a common refrain. Clobber the Republicans. Go for the jugular.
I take the time to write this today because Pelosi has already said she will not go after Republicans the way they went after Democrats.
I think it was the famous football coach Vince Lombardi who said…..Winning is everything!
The American people deserve no less.
Key West has a lesbian Mayor. First ever. In fact, first lesbian ever elected Mayor in Florida.
Terri Johnston the lady. I know her. She is experienced government wise. A head on her shoulders. She will do extremely well.
A lesbian Mayor is no big deal in Key West. Many residents gay and lesbian. Terri’s gender preference not even an item of conversation. Whatever a person’s lifestyle an accepted fact in Key West. One human family!
Ladies beware! Watch how you bend over to put groceries in your car. A 32 year old man was arrested for reaching up a woman’s skirt and touching her butt in a Publix parking lot as she was placing her groceries in the car.
The man has been arrested.
Not a first offender. Arrested in 2015 on a somewhat similar charge. He pinched he butt of a girl as she boarded a school bus.
The best thing that may have happened to Beto O’Rourke was losing. Now he is free to consider running for President in 2020. The man is Presidential timber.
Democratic activists in Iowa and New Hampshire have asked him to visit.
Keep in mind, Abraham Lincoln ran for the U.S. Senate from Illinois in 1858. He lost. Two years later, he ran for President and won.
Water and oil do not mix. Nor does Trump and truth.
Trump held a press conference yesterday. A big one. He would have been better off staying in bed.
He was totally discombobulated. Strung out and strained. His composure and demeanor not one reflecting a President of the United States.
An embarrassing situation has evidenced itself concerning Melania and her African trip. Not her fault. I would like to know whose and why.
The Semiramis Intercontinental Hotel is in Cairo. Melania did not stay overnight. However, it appears she used the hotel room during the day for whatever.
The hotel’s regular room is $119 a night. The best accommodation, the Presidential Suite, $699 a night. Melania’s bill $95,050.
Something amiss. The U.S. government paid the bill never the less.
The bill was labeled for an overnight stay. The hotel said the cost was high because the staff spent 6 days preparing for her visit and the hotel also had to deal with Secret Service personnel prior to her arrival.
U.S. official spending records recorded the payment as “[First Lady] visit hotel rooms.”
My suspicious mind makes me wonder if more than her visit was involved.
A lovely time of the year! Syracuse football and basketball at the same time.
