      Thanks – love Sarah and Michael – have the album.

      • DeniseVB says:

        My other video choice was We Didn’t Start The Fire, but thought to go with something more upbeat like a classic Broadway “rapey” scene. 😉

        • piper says:

          Like that one too – post that one tomorrow and let Klown sleep in another day – Hope he’s enjoying his VACATion.

          • DeniseVB says:

            I’m leaving for Atlanta in the early a.m. BUT am taking my laptop. If I can figure out air/hotel/event WiFi, I hope to be checking in from #RSG15 ! <—- the hashtag is starting to crank up on twitter. It's like ComiCon for political junkies, so glad I decided to go.

      • cynic says:

        Aaah, Sarah Brightman, one of my favorites. Saw her in her La Luna tour. Thanks for the reminder, as I haven’t listened to her for awhile. Spent waaaay too much time watching MSNBC and FOX, and not listening to enough music!

        • DeniseVB says:

          I last saw her on her La Luna tour too ! Trivia: when Phantom first opened on Broadway in the mid-80’s she was married to Andrew Lloyd Webber, some say the play was biographical of their relationship. I see and hear it in the scene above. ALW discovered her….

    Obama issues marching orders to watch the GOP debate to his special snowflakes “The Republicans want to destroy my legacy!” <—- ok, that was paraphrased.

    • Lulu says:

      That is very dangerous. That is the first step to reversing brain washing. Listening to entire sentences or paragraphs instead of carefully selected and edited sound bites is not the way to control the masses. And most people are sick of him and think he should have no say in his successor. Go away Bronco. Besides the Dems won’t even appear together much less debate.

    • piper says:

      Destroy the legacy of incompetency, tyranny and stupidity. BFD

      • lizzy says:

        Legacy, what legacy? Corruption, crony capitalism. domestic spying, gun running foreign more foreign. Foreign policy that makes citizens less safe. Let’s tally the true legacy of the POS and hope we survive to curse him out of office.

    In case you missed it, this is Ted Cruz trolling liberals ….

    • piper says:

      It’s a fluff piece – she has 4 degrees – really
      “She isn’t quite a celebrity. Or a philanthropist. Or a politician, though let’s not rule that out. Now serving as vice chair of her family’s foundation, she has reinvented herself as a champion of uncontroversial causes, her life an endless string of grand entrances, polite speeches, photo-ops — after which she retreats to her eight-figure Manhattan condominium, expecting the media and the public to preserve the boundaries she has cherished since childhood. Polished, practiced and private, Chelsea Clinton is the closest thing America has to a princess.” UGH, UGH

      • DeniseVB says:

        Chelsea’s 35 and you’d think if she was interested in politics she would have jumped in at some level by now. I’m sure any congressional district in the NYC area would elect her in a heartbeat, but I just don’t see that kind of passion in her.

        • Lulu says:

          She is not a do’er. She has no particular talent. She isn’t stupid but she isn’t her father. Nor does she have her mother’s ambition. She is a beloved daughter and that is all.

          • leslie says:

            I wanted to respond in similar fashion this morning, but had to catch a train and needed to get out of here. Chelsea has probably had enough of politics and is smart enough to know when to say “no”. Her talent is limited and it seems her ambition is even less obvious.But that’s okay. We are not being bombarded with prompts, cues photos, and stories from MSM to pay attention to her and she may be just fine with that. At least she had the good sense (and taste) to stay away from people of Lena Dunham’s ilk.

  4. DeniseVB says:

    Undeclared Uncle Joe’s polling higher than Uncle Bernie now. I think he is going to run.

  5. Lulu says:

    “But it may be too late to change impressions of an NSC bureaucracy whose size has come to symbolize an overbearing and paranoid White House that insists on controlling even the smallest policy details, often at the expense of timely and effective decisions.”
    This reminds me of the Baltimore city government exposed by their emails obtained by a FOIA. Rank incompetence. No one is responsible and the decision tree looks like a bed of ivy. Overbearing and paranoid. Choking off everything.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Wow. Paranoid White House indeed. Too bad WaPo’s about 7 years too late noticing that.

      • Lulu says:

        They have every reason to be paranoid. If they can be yanked out of there the mess they have made will be exposed. Everything will have to be redone. And that is just in the NSC. Cronies, lick-spittles, idiots, and yes people are all that are there. When Bronco is gone the entire professional class of the US government will turn on them and rat their stupid asses out. Then they have to root out the ones who will try to stay on a civil servants. You transfer them to rural Kentucky or Idaho or overseas to worst dump you can find so they quit. That is what the Clinton’s did to the hangers on from Reagan and Bush I. It worked.

  6. Dora says:

    Very interesting look behind the scenes.

    “Nothing in the Democrat Party happens by accident, especially when the big dog Obama is sitting in the White House directing every scene”

    No Keys to the White House for You!

    • DeniseVB says:

      This part is so very true and I do believe BO wants Biden in, he’s been a very loyal soldier to Teh Won and won’t undo his legacy……….

      Is it too late for Biden to enter the race? Not if you are given the most complete database ever developed by a political campaign that resulted in two presidential wins. The same database Hillary has asked him to share with her for years but has never relinquished.

      “The women’s health organization has vehemently denied that it sell fetal tissue for profit.”

      But have they denied selling fetal tissue? I don’t think so and that is what has sickened me. Well, that and the harvesting of “fetal tissue” to sell.

  8. Dora says:

    Neither one!

    • DeniseVB says:

      No wonder Trump is soaring. He’s a threat to the duopoly one-party system. And the media corps AND Obama’s New World Order of punish success, reward failure.

    • blowme0bama says:

      OF COURSE they don’t sell body parts for “profit” – PP is a “non-profit” corporation! All money will go into increased salaries and bonuses. Another lying leftist telling leftist lies.

  11. Myiq2xu says:

    American conservatism is profoundly tied up with the old-fashioned gender paradigm in which husbands are active providers and women are passive nurturers. In that paradigm, a woman’s job—the core of her femininity—is to make herself as pretty as possible and then sit back and wait to be picked. That is a deeply conservative idea. You could argue that the conservative path is much friendlier to conventionally attractive women than it is to those with less “mainstream” looks. So is it any surprise that Republican women tend to read “pretty”? It’s a much tougher path for the women who don’t.

  12. Myiq2xu says:

    Kira Davis:

    Generally speaking, I do believe the Jezebel article hit on an important truth that the feminist movement rarely takes into account.

    Conservative women are prettier because they aren’t afraid of their femininity. The liberal women that Jezebel tries so hard to defend have decided that “gender equality” doesn’t mean being equally considered alongside men, it means being THE SAME AS men. They think women and men to be endowed with the same qualities and not be recognized as different in any way. They think the differences between men and women come down to the false construct of societal norms.

    Conservative women believe that women are equally as important as men, but they are not the SAME AS MEN and don’t want to be. They recognize the uniqueness of femininity. This isn’t to say that femininity is limited to heels and red lipstick. It comes in many forms. The point is that whether they’re tomboys or closet Ms.Americas all those women have an understanding that being a woman is fundamentally different from being a man…and they like that.

    Conservative women understand that they’ve been given certain gifts as a woman and to throw those gifts away in the name of “equality” is to throw their power away.

    This past weekend we took our 13-year-old son and his cousin of the same age (who is a girl) on vacation. The whole weekend when our son would rush to be the first through the door or the first to receive an ice cream cone or to take the last available seat on a bus my husband and I would gently remind him, “Ladies first.” And every time we said it he would respond with, “No! Gender equality! I support gender equality!” (thank you, public school).

    Some feminist scolds might read that and say “Good for him! We don’t need men holding doors for us. This isn’t 1948. We can hold our own doors!”

    Well, of course we can. But that isn’t the point. I can’t for the life of me understand why any woman would scoff at the thought of a man PUTTING HER FIRST. First through the door, first to be served, first to be offered a seat after a long day of standing. First in his life. It’s a privilege. Feminists want women to be given first consideration for scholarships and employment and benefits in order to level what they consider an uneven playing field, but the idea of letting a woman go through the door first is offensive?

    They talk themselves right out of every advantage they have as women, then complain when men seem to have all the advantages. The liberal female’s fear of femininity leads them to do silly things like insist men stop noticing they’re women. They want men to change who they are and stop pretending that women are special creations deserving of extra care, respect and love. Women do just fine on their own. A real man is no man at all without an important woman somewhere in his life. That’s pretty damned special.

    Conservative women like the fact that men and women are different. They recognize that the aspects of the feminine nature are actually advantageous. They aren’t so wrapped up in the lie that men and women are essentially the same that they forfeit their womanly advantages. They recognize that being a woman is its own type of power, and when wielded correctly can yield much better results than marching on the lawns of state capitals with signs about governments and vaginas.

      Fair enough, will the Foxapalooza Team Debate Moderators ask him that question? And when did Hot Air start sourcing WaPo ? I’d like to know ! 😀

      • Lulu says:

        That is hilarious. Why not? Hillary is sinking like a rock and may not be well. Bill knows where the bodies are buried. Release the Kracken! Sweet, sweet revenge. And they are both too old to go to jail.

    Big Donors Warn Candidates On Eve Of Debate: “Take Trump Out”

    • DandyTIger says:

      Of course. They would be irrelevant if he wins.

      • Lulu says:

        That is very stupid. Attacking him has made him go up in the polls and this debate’s rules are if anyone attacks anyone by name they get 30 seconds to respond. Can you imagine The Donald with 30 extra seconds to rip their head off on live television.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I’m thinking Forbes and Perot financed their own campaigns way back when, neither were as scary as The Donald is today for the status quo.
