Reince Priebus Oblivious To Reality

The head of the Republican National Committee was not happy with the debate last night and said:

While I was proud of our candidates and the way they handled tonight’s debate, the performance by the CNBC moderators was extremely disappointing and did a disservice to their network, our candidates, and voters. Our diverse field of talented and exceptionally qualified candidates did their best to share ideas for how to reinvigorate the economy and put Americans back to work despite deeply unfortunate questioning from CNBC.

One of the great things about our party is that we are able to have a dynamic exchange about which solutions will secure a prosperous future, and I will fight to ensure future debates allow for a more robust exchange. CNBC should be ashamed of how this debate was handled.

Reince Priebus must be living in an alternate universe to have expected anything else. The NBC brand (NBC, MSNBC, and CNBC) is crawling with lefties. There is no objectivity. There is no intellectual honesty.

Before the debate I was already asking myself why the Republicans were subjecting themselves to another debate hosted by wacko reporters who have obvious disdain for the conservative's point of view. I was not to be disappointed. I got exactly what I expected. The head of the RNC should have known better.

Perhaps the time has come for Mr. Priebus to re-evaluate his position as the head of the Republican National Committee.

Hillary On Benghazi

President Truman was famously known for having a sign on his desk that said, "The Buck Stops Here."

Dismissing an email sent to her from her assistant, Huma Mahmood Abedin, which indicated she felt that Ambassador Chris Stevens may resign his post because of security concerns, Hillary said over and over that she was never contacted about the security requests from Stevens.

Hillary denied that a stand-down order had even been given to the people at the CIA annex when they requested permission to go to the aid of the Ambassador. I have watched and listened to the people who survived the attack swear that a stand-down order was given and that they ultimately decided to ignore the order and went to the state department's compound but were to late to rescue Ambassador Stevens .

Hillary also indicated that she took responsibility for the debacle in Benghazi, yet when questioned she was unable to say exactly what that meant. Did she fire the person supposedly responsible for the security of the Ambassador in Libya? No. Did she resign? No. In Hillary's world taking responsibility is meaningless.

Hillary was seemingly unaware that there were no representatives from any countries still in Libya, except for the USA, at the time of the attack on the consulate because of the increase in violence. Even the Red Cross had pulled out.

Hillary also made the point several times that she had traveled to Libya. Rest assured that she had adequate security on her visits.

Ambassador Stevens was sent to Libya to prove that American foreign policy had been a success there and to being him home would have admitted another foreign policy failure.Hillary and HRH Obama were willing to risk Ambassador Steven's life and the lives of the CIA personnel at the annex in Benghazi to prove that point.

If you took only one thing away from Hillary's testimony today it would be that it was apparent that no sign like Truman's sign will ever grace her desk if she becomes President.

OMG!

If you ever had any questions about the dangers of inbreeding, all you had to do was watch the Democratic debate tonight to see at least two textbook examples of the deleterious results of said inbreeding.

Democratic Debate - Don't You Dare Pick On Hillary

In the first Republican debate Fox News tried to embarrass Donald Trump from the very first question and much of the questions after that followed in the same vein.

CNN tried to get the participants to attack one another in the second Republican debate.

We know that CNN is in tank for Hillary so don't expect them to ask her anything too tough lest they get accused of a war on women.

We know she was for the war on Iraq before she was against it.

We know she was against gay marriage before she was for it.

We know she was for the for the Trans-Pacific Trade Partnership (a.k.a. the TPP) before she was against it.

We know she doesn't think Obama went far enough with his illegal executive orders regarding illegal immigrants.

We know that she has lied about her emails and personal sever and attempted to destroy emails when she had been served with at least one subpoena and other requests under the freedom of information act.

And finally, we know that the phone rang at '3 A.M.' when the American ambassador and three others were attacked and ultimately killed in Benghazi and neither she or the President even bothered to 'answer the phone.'

Bernie Sanders is a communist.

The other 3 candidates are riding in the trunk of the Democratic clown car.

Debate over.
