Almost too many links and thoughts to discuss today. A few thoughts and a couple things to look at and, if you are like me at least, laugh and laugh and laugh.
--I did not watch the speech, as I rarely do, as it's easier to read the recap and bullet points (hopefully, no one was offended by that firearms reference) the next day. However, the near unanimous kudos of it leaves only the extreme partisan hacks trying desperately to find fault with it (and leaves us with proof on who to ignore, as they are lying liars who today are asking noted communist Van Jones why he was honest instead of being critical of a lauded speech; who openly root against the USA).
--The one point I saw over and over today...how glum and depressed the Dems looked. Particularly, they were so caught up with their negative nellie attitudes, they failed to realize how incredibly unpatriotic and anti law enforcement they appeared when they failed to join the GOP in standing for the widow of the slain police officer, as well as the widow of an American hero who gave his life for the country many of us love. Can you imagine the old media today had Obama saluted a cop's widow and fallen special forces sailor and the Republicans sat on their hands? It was, to be blunt, one of the most embarrassing moments in a 4 month span of incredibly embarrassing moments.
Bill Maher was quoted as saying, "Who wouldn't stand for a war widow?" The answer...many Dems. How out of touch and selfish can members of a party be?
Former Hillary staffer mocks widow of SEAL. If you are surprised by anti military rhetoric from the left, you have not been paying attention.
--Much talk about how weak the bench is for the Dems, but it certainly will not be quieted by the response, who was a retired governor from Kentucky, older than Trump, and where only a third of all voters supported Hillary. Meghan McCain said it sounded like a South Park parody, and the fact no one with a political future wanted to go on record pretty much says it all.
--First mention of radical Islamic terrorism by a sitting president, even though it has been the main source of terror for a couple decades, at least. I've lived through it, but in 50-100 years, when the history books tell the story, it will be mindnumbingly ignorant. As others have said, it's like being afraid to say Nazis for fear of offending the Third Reich.
