Nice Guys Get Romneyed

In 2016 when they finally got around to asking Trump supporters why they supported Supported Trump, the number one answer was “Because he fights.”

Trump ain’t no nice guy. If Donald Trump was playing the protagonist in a Hollywood western, he wouldn’t be Gary Cooper’s laconic Will Kane. Trump would be Clint Eastwood’s character in The “Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.” Trump isn’t Marshal Dillon, he’s Rooster Cogburn.

Most major-party presidential candidates have been in politics for 10-20 years. They hire political consultants who teach them how to talk and dress. By the time they run for POTUS, they are usually quite polished. Trump’s not polished. Trump has rough edges on his rough edges. His critics say he doesn’t act presidential.

Most people would agree that Mitt Romney is a nice guy. Mitt Romney acted presidentially.

Candy Crowley ate Mitt Romney’s lunch.

That’s when I realized that Mitt Romney is a loser.

Four years ago we were warned that Donald Trump is rude, crude, and socially unacceptable. We voted for him anyway. The Left must be desperate because they keep recycling and reusing their lame, failed attacks.

(There is a reason they call him “Jake the Fake.”)

If Trump was a nice guy who always minded his manners, he would have been knocked out of the race back in June 2015 before he even reached the bottom of the escalator in Trump Tower.

Take last night’s debate. Chris Wallace tried mightily to keep some topics from being discussed and some questions by Trump from being answered by Biden. One of those topics is Hunter Biden.

Which makes me wonder: 99% of the news media agree that Hunter Biden is a taboo topic. They have less-than zero interest in why foreigners love to shower Hunter with money. How was this unity of thought and purpose achieved? Was it a cash purchase, or is it some religious cult thingie? Were any threats made?

It seems to me that those creative attorneys at the SDNY could come up with a RICO act violation if they put a little effort into it.

At the age of three, little “DonnyTwo-Scoops” started collecting rents for his father.

      Me too. I actually drove to Montana last week and quit watching TV and reading papers for that week. It was really refreshing. I saw about 3 Biden signs on the drive and a lot of Trump signs. Strangely two of the Biden signs were next door to houses that were decorated in total trump décor. I have to say there were zero “mostly peaceful demonstrations” and when I went in the Kalispell Cabela’s the gun displays were full. In Washington the gun and ammo stores are empty. They told me I could pick out a gun, order it on line and pick it up at the nearest Cabela’s but of course that is almost to Olympia. Still it’s better than nothing which is what is available in store.

    Well, that was an interesting night. After staying up past my bedtime, I decided to let the doggies outside so they’d sleep in later. It was raining hard. Like torrentially. Hank went outside reluctantly, but when he came back in, he expected his breakfast. Who says dogs don’t have schedules? He sleeps, he pees, he eats. So I put a little kibble in his bowl, and I attempted to get Miss Ellie back inside. It was tropically warm here last night for late September, and Miss Ellie does love to be outside in the rain. She went as far back from the house as she could get and stood and looked at me with a waggy tail. I eventually had to go out and get her so now we were both soaked. I got her dried off, and the two pups tucked into bed.
    But now I was wide awake so I decided to read Mollie Hemingway’s book about the Kavanaugh hearings for a bit. I finally drifted off to sleep about 3 am. Just before dawn when it was still dark, the power went off. Miss Ellie is afraid of the dark so she attempted to jump into bed with me. The problem was Mr. Hank had taken over the spot on the floor next to my bed. When it’s dark here, it’s really dark, and Ellie didn’t see him there. So she made her 85 lb launch into the bed from on top of Hank. That startled Hank, and he knocked over my table next to the bed. That sent my flashlight sailing across the room. I had fallen asleep with my Kindle next to my pillow, and that got me enough light to get into the bathroom where there was another flashlight. But now both dogs were awake, and it was only an hour or so before the sun came up.
    While Ellie and I were down at the lake watching the waves which look more like the ocean than a pond today, the mail lady shouted to me that the power was back on in the neighborhood. I now have to decide whether I’m going to just push through today and go to bed a little earlier, or if I’m going to take a nap. Maybe I’ll try to finish Mollie’s book. I’m at the point where Christine Blasey Ford is entering the scene. The book, “Justice on Trial” is really good. It reads like a novel. I have to remind myself I know how it ends.

    My older brother cannot stomach Trump. He is too unpolished for Jim. I love my big bro, but he is all about appearances. He lives in Georgia now. He got hired with a yuuge signing bonus forone of those silly named southern companies. He pulls in six figures with no degree. He refuses to look at why he was hunted down because of Trump economy. He makes twice the average salary for a VP with a discount store. He is my brother. He needs to compensate for our childhood even at late 50’s. We were brutally poor. We never did welfare or got free lunches. My father had too much pride.
    We struggled. Jim has never paid a bill late. He irons his jeans. I spun out of control. Nothing for me to look out the window and see a bridge that spans a bay. I do stupid shit like wake up in San Fransiisco. Jim monitors his every action. He has to be in control. We spoke for two hours last night. He has this rule book about life. He never expresses extreme emotions. All things are contained. We are not at odds. We are close. I mentioned this before. Abu (boo) was dying. My brother could not put his dog down. I did it. I take the good, I take the bad. My skin can be thicker. We are Family. I know where I stand. I am called more sensitive cause I emote. I actually have the fortitude to show up when the going gets tough. I had to pull my mom away from my dad. My siblings could not tear my mom away and hold her. I did. I was it — I had to tell her he was gone.
    I fought with Jim and Steve about education. Thier kids were getting a half assed education. It was impolite to say this massive feel good school sucked ass. I am asshole. I called it out. I do not bite my tongue. I gladly take a stand for my. Alexis and Jimmy are my. I will scream and you will hear me. They could barely get into state schools. I said hold my beer. Lex is on a full scholarshipto be a physician assistant. She is smart. I had to say fuck you. Polite only you gets you so far. I love President Donald J. Trump. I fight. My kid who is not my child has the word strive in her vocabulary. I love the word begin. My not my child has started her life. She begins with her belief in herself. She knows she begins right now. Rachel madcow makes me want to puke. No one gets to define me and mine. I have been with my dearest friend since birth in 2006. My buddy I have contributed faith. I stand by/with my girl. I believe in her. I am a very real asshole. I got my kids back.

    Mark Levin

    Here’s the bottom line: Joe Biden is a hustler. He’s been hanging around politics for half a century. He has accomplished nothing significant. He lies incessantly about his past and his future plans should he become president. Biden and the DC media have worked together for decades, and it shows. He did not come to the debate last night with a positive case to make for a Biden presidency. He attacked, attacked, attacked. Despite what the media are saying today, and the endless spin, a neighbor of mine who is not very political or committed to any candidate said to me this morning that Biden gave him absolutely no reason to vote for him. He said he has no idea what he stands for after all these years. Yes, he’s a hustler.

    • 1539days says:

      Biden decided at 66 he could not become president and ran for Vice President in 2008. He got to be president for 8 years and feed his ego. Then he saw how weak and defeated the Democrats were in 2020 and the old urge to be president came back. The theory now is that the party chose his running mate and he makes Kamala more palatable to the supposedly dumb white voters.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Joe dropped out of the 2008 primary before the first primary, he was barely registering at 1%. Ended up VP pick. Boy, does this sound familiar.

    When Trump Won the Debate

    The president stood tough in defense of his supporters

    The crucial moment in Tuesday night’s debate was near the end when Joe Biden invited President Trump to throw the Proud Boys under the bus, and the president refused to do it. The president was asked by moderator Chris Wallace “to condemn white supremacists and militia groups and to say that they need to stand down and not add to the violence in a number of these cities as we saw in Kenosha and as we’ve seen in Portland.” Trump replied, “Sure, I’m willing to do that,” but then added that “almost everything I see” in terms of violence “is from the left-wing, not from the right-wing. I’m willing to do anything.… I want to see peace.”

    My mom claims she got her 8th mail in ballot today. I got my first.iam registered Republican she is dimocrat, but a yuuuge Trumper. I counted 4 signs on a 20 minute walk. 2 biden 2 Trump. It is a democratic stronghold. My congress critter often runs unopposed. I have Negron signs in my yard. He has no chance. Trump didn’t even mention him when he was here. He went on about Parnell. Luke Negron came to my house to drop off signs in person. He is a cutie. Black, hispanic, and white. It is just not a Rethug area.Dims will always win here. The universities and the hospitals control politics. They get what they want and cloak it in feel good. Pitt pays no taxes. They give two years free tuition to city residents. It does not extend to the whole county just the city. I live 20 minutes walking. Shaypup does not get 2 free years even though there are two medical centers in my borough that pay no taxes. University of Pittsburgh Medical Center is a beast. Largest employer in the county. They control all things political. It is not even a public university. It is private as are Penn State, Temple, and Lincoln. They get mad cash- more than actual state schools. Because they get to pretend they are state schools. They are private with state reps sitting on the board. It is a scam. Pitt has one of the largest endowments but they cry poor. They cash a fat check year after year. It is a lie. They are clever. Pittsburgh is a small big city dependent on education and medicine for livlihood. My mother is a psychiatric nurse. She rather was. She is retired 19 years my senior. I at 53 is be a tad bit older than Shaypup’s friends parents. Nearly every mom is a nurse here. We chose not to stop living. Girls/boys stay here. Ya think nurse moms would put their kids in jeopardy? They knew. We did not buy horse shit. We got up and lived for our kids. I gots me kidney and liver issues. Like I should be dead. I got all this covid fear. Fuck the fuck off. I will stand by my child. Shayla Rayne is my greatest event. I will choose death before I let her fall. There was a song in history. I will break your fall. My pathetic body is for my kid. I is gonna be there for my kid. No one else is singing this song. She is my crud. I am standing up. It is U2 . The Sweetest Thing.

    • elliesmom says:

      Is your mom getting ballots, or is she getting applications for absentee ballots? RI sends out applications for absentee ballots to every registered voter. But you have to fill it out and send it it back to get sent a ballot. Anyone can go online and print out an application so other than sending out extra forms is an expense the taxpayers don’t need to spend money on, it’s not fraud if the state sends me an extra one. . If I’m going to ask for an absentee ballot, which I’ve done everytime I’ve voted here because I never knew whether election day would be a day I could take Elliesdad out of the house, I always get an application online because I can fill out it before I print it out. But they still mail me one so I technically have an extra ballot application. I wait for them to send a form because it will come with a prepaid envelope that has a tracking number on it so I can track my application, but I could put it in my own envelope and put a stamp on it.

      • Mothy67 says:

        You are correct. I barely looked at it. It is an application for a mail in ballot not a ballot. Requires state ID. You do not need ID to vote in person. I am voting in person. They moved the locale for primary after postponing election. My guv is making noise about when ballots have to be rec’d. Bullshit about up to 9 days after election. The application for ballot reads that the ballot has to be rec’d the Tuesday before election. You can drop it off on Nov. 3. I kinda like voting in person. It is like a holiday. I plan on going shortly after 9 am.

      • foxyladi14 says:

        I sent in my request for a ballot, And I have received two in the mail.

    Brat has been assigned To Kill a Mockingbird. She hates it. Thinks it is insulting. I guess her teacher who is the union rep has a race obsession. It doesn’t really sell here. Shay is not focused on color. I don’t even think she even knew Age, her almost cousin, is black. They have been bickering since they learned to speak. He is family. The same teacher gave the girls a chat about da gheys. It was apparently very insulting. Like we deserve some extra consideration. The kids have known me most of their lives. I sit on the deck with the boys and shoot the shit sometimes until wee hours. I have had parents thank me for getting sons to take school seriously. I simply ask them to envision their future. How ya gonna get there. Take the now and own it. I was waiting for a lyft. The driver refused me because of my hat (MAGA) . i had walked to the shopping center as I live on a side street. The 8th grade boys were on bikes. Driver told me I was a threat because of my gay gay gay hat. It was the Richard Grenell hat. The kids ran the driver out. It was absurd to them.
    I did a pizza movie night. Brats were amazed that you can watch Hitchcock without sound and understand. He learned to make movies with no speech. I talk with the kids about things their parents cannot. I was given quite a bit that working class people don’t often get. I had to find myself. My history means nothing if I do not discover a way to share it.
    I read Shay every word out loud of Harry Potter. We would stay up all night reading and then i would buy the movie. I gave her riches. She had an adult that cared about her mind. I informed her that that was magic. Love is not defined only by DNA. She got the shaft. Her bio parents were unfit. That didn’t mean they dictated her story. We can build something else. I could not be prouder. I owe a debt to JK Rowling. My urchin learned of friendship. Sometimes I catch the boys watching Potter in the middle of the night. The works did touch some kids. Ethan is funny as hell. He told everyone he was gay so he could hang out in winter months in girls rooms that had better game consoles. Ethan is not gay.
    Anywho this obscenely skinny union nazi bitch decided to give my kid and her classmates a lecture on da gheys. It was painted as if the only aspect to my existence was being some sad victim. I have nothing but how some overpaid lib sees me. She thinks she can define me. My Shay said my uncle ( i am her great uncle) is an asshole. Teach thought it was an insult. Everyone in the class agreed with my Pup. Tim is an asshole. I is a asshole. Not the way the bleeding heart liberal teacher thought. I got here. Here is a place where I decide who and what I am. I say what I think.

    • elliesmom says:

      I hope Shay gives “To Kill a Mockingbird” a chance. It’s probably the most universally loved book by kids her age. It’s that kind of book that bridges the gap between young adult literature and books with adult themes. A lot of really bright kids aren’t quite ready to make the leap from books like “The Hunger Games”, “Harry Potter”, the Twilight series, and other books written with black and white, good and evil clearly defined. “To Kill a Mockingbird” takes them over the bridge. The popularity of YA lit with a lot of adults has grown recently. My friends say it’s because YA lit has improved so much, but it really hasn’t. There’s just a lot more of it because adults are reading it, too, so there’s a bigger market. She might like “In an Instant” by Suzanne Redfearn. It’s another book where the storyteller is a young person who is observing the adults around her in a crisis situation. Not destined to be a classic like Mockingbird, but a good story and more to think about than most YA lit. It’s cheap on Kindle. 🙂

      • Mothy67 says:

        I think it is the racist teacher that has turned her off. She is a bigot. Her lens is nasty. She sells herself as equalizer, but she is putting people in her slots. She strikes me as common. I consider common like pity to be insults. I think she has no value. Dull. I don’t want my pup getting lectured by everything under the sun by a zealot. I don’t think
        kid needs lecturing. I realize literature can/will evoke all sorts of thoughts/concepts. From what I gather this woman is riding an agenda. Kiera, whose mother is my nemesis, is also very unhappy with the teach. Kier is half black. She has her own page. Smart and able. She feels the teach belittles who Kiera is by focusing on her race and not her person. Kier and Shay have it seems always been friends. Gina, her mom, and I bat heads. It’s our thing. We fight but she always drives me home. I cherish Kiera and she watches out for Shay. I assume Kiera has keys. Everyone has keys, but apparently me. I get locked out and get stabbed by yard tools.
        Have you read A Confederacy of Dunces? You might hate it. Reaction is hot or cold. I know you put it on your list. I think you will get the humor. It is a farce.
        I got sucked into YA novels for a second. Easy reads on a bus. They all seem to be the same. I liked Twilight but thought the follow ups were at best opportunistic. How many books can you ride Wuthering Heights? I bought one of those romance novels once at a train station. It was a blast. Syrupy fun. I don’t need to ever go there again.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Wait til she’s assigned Diary of Anne Frank. Now there was a crisis situation….. 😉

        • elliesmom says:

          When my grandson came to stay with me to get his summer assignments done, I got to see his summer reading list. A lot of the books were “movie books”. That’s not unusual when you’re trying to get non-readers to read. The summer list was a nice mix of young adult books and adult books with appropriate themes for kids who would be reading without an adult in the room. Lots of chick-lit which surprised me. Teenage love stories like “The Fault in Our Stars”. For examples from the list, “The Princess Bride” is considered young adult lit, and the “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” is not. But the stories in both are age appropriate. Ninth grade is the year the curriculum does the transition. “Anne Frank” usually shows up there while “Night” by Elie Wiesel would come in 10th, and “The Book Thief” in 8th. As the 8th grade team leader, I sat in on the curriculum planning meetings with the school superintendent for all of the subjects, and I was relieved to learn things are not as random as they sometimes seem.

      • Mothy67 says:

        I bought ” In an Instant” for me. I loved to read, but my education kinda ruined the joy of reading. I hate that I can’t just allow words to fall all over me. I had to study written shite too hard. I lost the joy. I do not want to dissect everything. I fell madly in love with novels because my poor mom forgot to return stickers from Doubleday Book Club. Thick volumes were just on the porch wrapped in brown paper. I had no friends. I was a scared skinny sickly gay boy. The Thorn Birds and The Stand changed my life. I saw more than where I was. I was infused with life. Drogheda and a dress the color of ashes of roses. Ashes of roses? Who puts words together like that. It or rather Colleen Mcollough gave me new sight. I was so lonely trapped in my little world – a sweeping saga about love lost and squandered catulpted me into the real world. Fiction made me decide to actually live my real life.

        • elliesmom says:

          My mom was an avid reader. She couldn’t drive so she enrolled in lots of book clubs. My older brothers weren’t readers so when I came along and loved books, she finally had the kid who thought it was a privilege to stop at the library and pick up books for her on my way home from school. She enrolled me in a children’s classics book club even before I started school. I read them, my kids read them, and now my grandkids have them. When I got old enough to read books off my mom’s shelves, the first book she handed me was “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn”. I loved mysteries, and she had an entire Agatha Christie collection. My mom and I didn’t always get along all that well, but we shared a love of books.

        • swanspirit says:

          I am a compulsive reader. I read almost every book in the mobile library ( remember them?) by the fifth grade. Especially books about horses🏇🐴🐎. I just reread Black Beauty for nostalgia. I read The Rise and Fall of The Third Reich when I was seventeen.
          I do confess that I was book smart and people stupid.
          I love Shakespeare, and Tom Robbins, and ancient Chinese poetry.
          Given how bright Shay is, and how broad her interests, its hard to say where her interests may take her.
          Sometimes I have to let a book jump off the shelf at me. Starmaker, by Olaf Stapledon did that.

          But To Kill A Mockingbird is such a treasure, the teacher who turns a kid off of that book should be strangled.

          • Mothy67 says:

            It is me she detests, but she takes it out on da pup. I dared to question last year them forcing kids to watch cnn 10. How dare I.I should actually thank them. Kids really resent the brainwashing. They took away the 20 minutes after lunch for that noise.
            I am curious to see how they go back to in class instruction. Naomi and Shaypup are the only kids in Algebra 2. Nay is prodigy. She has a math brain. Shay is more verbal. They spur each other on. The teacher has requested they get geometry in January as they will be done with Algebra. Neither needs the snails pace.
            I think I previously noted my niece in nursing school has finished her bullshit sociology type classes. I think her tuition is about 20 grand – that means she is paying almost 3 for something she can breeze through in a long weekend. I think the well rounded education had significance in 1950. Today everything is available at fingertips. You do not need to spend three days a week for a semester and go into debt to read theories about suicide. I think we need to look at the cost. Does Lexi need 5 years to be a nurse. She lives on campus. It will run close to 200 thousand. Financial Aid strikes me as a scam. Does studying Othello make one a better nurse? My mom went to community and finished first on state exams. Do we need to evaluate the higher education model? Especially when it is strapping kids with extreme debt.

I sometimes give her perspective. I am one of six with an older brother. We found Magnum condoms. The world was supposed to fall apart. They must have bought the largest box ever because they all had them. Like several girls had them. Shay did not hide them. I put treats in her bags – she has thousands of bags. One for vball, one for cheer, one for school. She was not hiding them. I speak with my brat. She told me they wanted to see what they looked like. I texted Kate. We laughed so hard. I opened one. I said to Kate when I was a kid we got boots from kmart and then shoved our feet into bread bags. This yuuuge condom could afford both my feet. Her husband thought that was hilarious. I get libs telling me all the time how the blue collar workers hate me for being gay. It is fiction. I love how the clueless think they understand anything. Igrew up with my cousin Johnny.

    Jessica Hertz, a former Associate General Counsel for regulatory matters at Facebook, has joined the transition team of Democratic Presidential campaign Joe Biden.

    The hire speaks to the close relationship between the Biden camp and big tech platforms such as Facebook which frequently weaponizes its service to censor and suppress conservative users and content.

    I remember this debate, Biden laughing through the whole thing. And he thought he could do this to Trump? They still don’t understand anything about him or us.

      I know, Trump’s economic numbers have been astounding. What is more, the largest gains were in the lower quartile of earners.

      When Wallace asked why should people vote for you, I wish POTUS had mentioned this.

    Mark Dice went there. Chrissy Teigen lost the baby at 20 weeks, and I’m sad for their loss, but the drama she added was bizzare. Unfortunately even the miracles of modern neo-natal premie survival are rare under 24 weeks, some news outlets are calling it a newborn.

    These are the photos she shared on her Instagram, we’re not laughing, we’re concerned. (Actually, I don’t care in that “sh*t happens” sort of way, but she is getting the attention she craves and her Trump hating fans can blame him 😛 )

      I feel bad for any woman who loses her baby at any point along the way. But if you live your life on Instagram, you’ve invited the public into your private life. Not everyone who comes through the door is going to be nice. It’s kind of like asking a complete stranger, “Do these pants make my butt look big?” Your best friend and the stranger are both capable of being brutally honest with you, but only one of them will have good intentions. And if you insult people on a regular basis, you’ve set the bar. Personally, I wish Teigan an easy physical recovery. I hope being insulted publicly at a difficult time will make becoming more kind herself part of her emotional growth from this personal tragedy.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Comments in Mark’s thread crossed the aisle, there were a lot of “blue waves” expressing concern, Chrissy’s been a little coo-coo for awhile now. No “righties” were grave dancing, just acknowledging their pro-life positions now have a face on them at 20 weeks. “How Dare You!” haters ! You know the left, never let a crisis go to waste, attack everything. 😉

        I kept my gallows humor in check, “Well, there’s a Gender Reveal Party gone wrong”. My heart breaks for anyone suffering a loss, but I gave myself a giggle.

          I love teaching teens to cook, and several of my friends have taken advantage of that and sent me their kids. ❤ One of kids is in her 20s now, and she's part of my recipe swap circle. She recently bought Teigen's cookbook, and she's been gushing over it. I don't buy a lot of new cookbooks for myself. I have too many already. So I choose carefully when I do. I asked my young friend if Tiegen's book is written like it's by a celebrity who cooks or someone who is a celebrity because she cooks? That was apparently an unfair question to ask.

      I have lost 3 babies and the last thing I thought about was politics when the miscarriages happened. It was a very sad time and I had other things on my mind

      • DeniseVB says:

        ❤ helen. I had massive bleeding with Special Greg at 20 weeks, doc just said go to bed and elevate your legs for a few days, if the bleeding doesn't stop, go to the ER for a D&C. It stopped, he went full term, but I do think that was a warning sign. He'll be 47 in Feb.

      The best and the brightest – Hirono, Schumer, Romney, Portman – would be on the panel.

      Pippa Somerville @cheesewame

      I have this theory that Mazie Hirono wasn’t elected to be a representative of the people so much as that she was voted off the island.

    I finshed Mollie Hemmingway’s book about the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings this morning. If you watched the hearings when they were happening, there are no bombshells, but it’s interesting to see it all laid out in a timeline like that. There were a lot things going on in the background that seemed to just burst out, but it turns out they were simmering from before he was nominated. I decided to read the book after seeing a very recent back and forth between Jeralyn at Talkleft and one of the regulars those of us who used to hang out there would instantly recognize. It was about whether Kavanaugh would be impeached if the Democrats win the Senate. I thought Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court is a done deal, and the left has moved on, but apparently not. Jeralyn seems to think so, too, but apparently that’s not the case. If they can’t stack the court, there are other ways to change the dynamic.

    Ann Althouse has a link up to her live blog of the Biden’s debate against Paul Ryan. The suggestion is Trump used videos of that debate to prep.
