So…looks like that recording of Trump is the nail in his coffin.

AdLib2 hours ago

Well it looks like we dodged another bullet on the debt ceiling

It blows up all of his defenses.

AdLib2 hours ago

Yep, I was pretty sure there would be a deal, the billionaire plutocrats who own the GOP wouldn’t allow for a debt default. Wonder if that’s why McCarthy had so little bargaining power.

AdLib2 hours ago

Yeah that’s all they’re talking about on MSNBC but there is sense of concern in their voices because the supposed report can’t be found and the talking heads on MSNBC seem to feel that’s needed for the slam dunck.

And fearful of having the MAGAs turn on him, McCarthy then says he’s going to have a committee on cutting SS and Medicare…you know, the things they all called Biden a liar for saying they would.

AdLib2 hours ago

Now I heard that Jim Jordan wants to open another investigation into Hillary

Kevin is all hat and no cattle he isn’t going to touch SS and Medicare, he knows better not to mess with old people.

TW – I saw some of those pundits on MSNBC and have to say, they’re being drama queens. They don’t need to find the doc, I’m sure there’s proof it existed but what matters is Trump admitting they were still classified, blowing up his remaining defense that he automatically de-classified secrets.

AdLib2 hours ago

Ok….I am caught up.

Hey Murph how you been?

It’s so pathetic, Trump is going down for his crimes so the Repubs are grasping at lies to try and portray Dems as criminal, whether the bogus investigation into Biden, trying to re-open non-existent charges against Hillary, it’s just lame.

Ad they have forgotten how to govern all they want to do is host on Newsmax

I think we see in Biden the benefit of having a very experienced legislator at the national level in the WH….and I think he crafted things such that McCarthy was put into a position where all he had to do was to get moderate support from what passes as moderate on the right. Not- despite the threats…no move to have that “vote of confidence” that McCarthy was forced to accept….why? cannot get enough votes for him to lose the vote of confidence (maybe with some Dem help…..)

TW…doing ok….with the co-op behind me life is simpler.

S. Rule had Bobert on her show and said during break asked how she could get a gig like Rule has on MSNBC.

TW – Of course not, McCarthy knows Biden and the Senate would never agree to cutting SS and Medicare and that if Repubs vote to do so in The House, they will get crushed even more in 2024. Kevin is trying to reassure the MAGAs that he’s on their side. But only idiots would believe that after he caved to reality on the debt ceiling.

AdLib2 hours ago

I have planted large ornamental garden….and it looks very nice.

TW – All they can do is guest host on Newsmax and lie.

AdLib2 hours ago

Murph I know that was hard for you, but we’re all at the point were we need life to be simple.

TW….without having folks ready to take cup the reins, the co-op’s demise was only a matter of time. In my mid-70’s- robust but still….

Murph – Biden knows how to do the job of governing and has been one of the most successful Dem presidents in history. McCarthy is just a puppet and while MAGAs kick him around in The House, he bows to the plutocrats who own the GOP.

AdLib2 hours ago

Frankly…..it will be good not to be a lightning rod

Murph you deserve a break so enjoy your garden and free time. Do some reading writing and the sun rises and sunsets. And just for fun a little poltiicking.

twilson117

Ad….I agree with your assessment of Biden. I think Biden played McCarthy very skillfully offering him enough support to neuter any threat of a no confidence vote. McCarthy will continue to make noise but he seems to be a useful tool

TW – Boebert can’t even host her family, let alone a tv show.

AdLib2 hours ago

Murph just ask your friends simple logical questions you know they can’t ask and sit back and enjoy the bemuse look on their faces.
