Repealing ObamaCare
Round One
An Astonishing Lack of Preparation and Congressional Leadership
26 March, 2017
Steven Lemon
I'll say one thing for the Democrats. They had control of the White House and the congress at the same time and BOOM! Months after Obama takes office, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi had the Obamacare bill on Barack Obama's desk (It was "a big f*****g deal", said Joe Biden.
Incidentally, when's the last time Mitch McConnell said something in public?
The way the leadership of the GOP is playing hide and seek you would think THEY lost the election instead of the Democrats.

Although it was the worst piece of legislation to come down the pike in decades (it took some creative license and judicial activism on the part of Chief Justice John Roberts to make it happen), the fact remains that they obviously were working on Obamacare in some fashion even before they had total control of the process. The election of Barack Obama and the arm twisting, vote buying, horse trading and legislative skills of the Democrat leadership combined with morons like Michigan Congressman Bart "I won't support a bill that finances abortions "Stupak and Nebraska Senator Ben "I didn't trade my vote for bonus Medicare funding for my state" Nelson.

The GOP has only had total control for a couple of months, but it is just as obvious that they only began working on their bill just last week.

The high minded "Freedom Caucus", made up of right wing conservatives in the congress, helped kill the current bill for reasons such as "It does not go far enough " and "It is nothing more than 'Obamacare light', so they prefer to get no loaf rather than half a loaf.

The caucus claims they were not elected to create something that looks like Obamacare with a different name.
They would do well to remember, they were not elected t leave Obamacare in place either, and the GOP leadership, as well as rank and file members including alleged conservatives Ted Cruz, Libertarian/Isolationist Rand Paul AND RINOS like Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, etc should consider, if we can't win these legislative battles WITH you, maybe we should try winning without you.
So what if we lose that too?
What's the difference?

Do I hear the sounds of third party rumbling in the distance?
Maybe its time for another TEA party revolution

Scott Pelley Out At CBS Evening News?
13 July, 2017
Steven Lemon
So, Scott Pelley, after six years is leaving his job as host of CBS Evening News.
The initial report is that the move is the result of his chronic third place ratings finish among the big three network newscasts.

Of course, the skeptic/cynic (and the realist) in ME can't help but look to the incendiary comments Pelley made a couple of weeks ago, when he intimated that perhaps the shooting of GOP legislators, including Rep Steve Scalise at a baseball field was somehow predictable and "self inflicted".

I think those comments were a direct and misguided effort to bolster ratings for his flagging show by attracting the alt-LEFT element that is basically flooding over the Democrat party in recent years and especially since the election of Donald J Trump as president of the United States.

 I think I'll go over to Twitter and ask him how that worked out.
I wouldn't usually kick a man (even a fake news reporter) when he's down, but in this case I'll make an exception.
