The Three-Fifths President

By PatD, a Trail Mix Contributor

A few threads back our fearless leader floated a theory that just might explain the unprecedented disrespect shown the President by the Republican Senate. They view him as 3/5 of a president keeping to their vaunted “constitutional originalism” … for indeed, back in those days a black man was considered only 3/5 a person. So that answers why his administration was only valid in their eyes for 57.6 months. After that they could care less.

r72813obamaAs usual Craig was spot on. Too bad he wasted this insight on us instead of on the air with the Iman so that it could have been heard by a larger audience. But perhaps there’s a book in it or at least a full fledged thread devoted to the outrageous disregard the Senators have for the 65,455,010 voters of 2012.

“There are moments, Jeeves, when one asks oneself, ‘Do trousers matter?'”

“The mood will pass, sir.”
P.G. Wodehouse, The Code of the Woosters

Although the thought had been nascent for several years, it once again arises – Obama really is a Blue Dog Dem. Those early years of giving the cookie jar and a few muffins to the Republicans for budget and other lesser things were taken that he was very naïve and trying to compromise, but it is now apparent that was incorrect. When every year he gave the Republicans the piggy bank and a few extra cupcakes to pass something or other, it seemed he was trying to compromise.

obamaBut, nay. He really has been running the White House on the edge of Republican left or center right of the Democratic platform.

To even float a Republican for Supreme Court is beyond comprehension of this Democrat. It is beyond any scify scribblings I could come up with. The Republicans have treated him like a door mat. They have treated him as they would scum on a pond. The Republicans do not like him, or anything about him.

And, yet he is still trying to play nice with the as*(&les.   He has the opportunity to finally turn the Supremes toward Americans and away from corporations. But, he comes up with a Republican. He can finally turn the Supremes to the left of right. His answer to the question of who should be on the bench is a Republican?

obama_stetsonOne hundred million Dems or Near Dems in fifty states, a district and many territories and protectorates. And he could not find one Democrat qualified to be a Supreme Court Justice? His true colors are now revealed. (Fifty very nasty swear word sentences removed.)

He could not find a Democrat; he could not find a liberal or progressive in our country? He had to go with a Republican. Horse apples.

Game Changer?

A Bill Clinton appointed federal judge ruled that State Department officials and top aides to Hillary Clinton should be questioned under oath about whether they intentionally thwarted federal open records laws by using or allowing the use of a private email server throughout Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.

“How on earth can the court conclude there is not at minimum a reasonable suspicion of bad faith,” Judge Sullivan said.

There’s No Denying Trump

By Rebellious Renee, Trail Mix Contributor

2015-12-08-1449591417-170352-DonaldTrump-thumbSeems like we want to talk about Trump. Well, I refused to comment about him only a few months ago.  I believed we all were giving the man too much attention.  But now…  there’s no denying him.  He is the front runner for the Republican nominee for presidential candidate 2016.  IMO, what that fact says about the state of the Republican Party and our country speaks volumes…  and it ain’t good.  We are a nation obsessed with celebrity.  And it seems like for this election, we are also obsessed with political “outsiders”.  All any of us can do is give our one little vote…. then sit back and watch what happens.  Bring on the popcorn!
