    Michael Bennet continues his tour of Iowa diners — Colorado US Senator Michael Bennet Campaigns for President in QCs  [QC is Quad Cities]. Article is continuing a whine about winning elections and not being nationally famous and "I don't raise money as well as some of these other people do on the internet because I'm not going to make empty promises to the American people."

    Picture on the article is pretty grim — Bennet alone in front of two plates of breakfast, with empty tables and a person exiting the door in the background.

      Wow, another "picture worth a thousand words." That is NOT the kind of photo a candidate wants or needs. Here I am, eating breakfast all alone. The diner was full when I walked in . . .

    Our president is the laughing stock of the free world. 😒

    Well it’s done! You have the Trumpster now. Three pointed head attorneys said so.


    • RepealAndReplace says:

      Once again, Roger, you are demonstrating your lack of proficiency with the English language.

      Are you talking about three pointed-head attorneys, or three-pointed head attorneys?

      It is no wonder that you and the other morons on the hard right have such a phobia of people learning and speaking foreign languages. You're still trying to master your first.

      Yeah, but all the cool kids in NATO laughed at him!

      • Powerful Pear says:

        You made my point. The cool kids can’t even defend themselves, serial underachievers.

          Well, the french came in mighty handy at Yorktown, where there were more French soldiers than Continentals — if you don't count the often unsteady militia.  And the Brits beat back Hitler while the Americans were still neutral.

          It's nice to have allies, especially when your own president is a draft-dodging coward.

          The Lithuanian motorcycle troops in Afghanistan are some of our most effective allies and the Estonians are doughty f
          ighters there as well. Latvia is training local forces in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
          Trump may not know where the Baltic states are, but they fight well above their weight class in the global struggle for freedom.

    He’s two-faced,” Mr. Trump said of Mr. Trudeau, when asked about the viral video.

    Trump was wrong to call Trudeau two-faced. It should have been three-faced, if you include the black face. Maybe it’s 4 face.

    • RepealAndReplace says:

      It's curious seeing a Trump Lover criticizing someone who appeared in blackface. Aren't you afraid you are going to alienate any of the GOP base?

      Get over yourself, PP. How many people in theworld the Orange Destruction lives in tells him what they actually think of him?

      My understanding is, you tell him what he wants to hear or you get a pink slip…

      There may be no one on the planet who gets more smoke blown up their ass. Your "President Snowflake" is so fucking insecure he needs to be constantly re-inflated…

      But the end is near. Have you enlisted in the T***pian army? You have your guns all ready? Are you gonna get out there and fight for your king?

      Hail Victory!

        Now Duke. You know you have been told to stop watching those televangelist. You know how it triggers psychotic episodes. The Pol Cats need you to be well. Pols need your well reasoned coherent analysis of the current events. If you can’t do it for the Pols, do it for the children.
