Posted on 03/05/14 at 03:59 pm in response to Michele Bachmann endorses tolerance

Bachmann, the Rep without any accomplishments, all of a sudden knows how to get things done in Washington. Based on her philosophy of working with those who agree with her 80% of the time proves she couldn't find anyone who agreed with her 80% of the time, thus no accomplishments. My suspicion is others agreeing with her is much closer to ZERO. Ever since she became a lame duck it has been a breath of fresh air not having to listen to her fiction.

It is the Republicans regressive ways to vote against everything. You can be proud of her if you want but I prefer to have someone who will work for all the people, not just the special few. I suspect she even voted against things she was once for because it was far more important to her to be an obstructionist than to work for the entire country. She has a very sad legacy. My indelible impression of Michelle is her hanging on the neck of George W. Bush at his State of the Union. We all...

Posted on 03/03/14 at 04:32 pm in response to Poll: Dayton with double-digit lead

The Republicans are in big trouble. They don't have a candidate that can be called a credible challenger to Governor Dayton, fiscal problems within the party, no leadership, and the tea party continues to destroy the party from the inside. They will put some very weak candidates to go against Governor Dayton stirring the pot, most likely with fiction, every which way in hopes of getting something to stick rather than making meaningful changes to their party to make it something voter could...

What race did George W. Bush's performance eliminate from being president? Maybe you have forgotten about him already.

Posted on 02/27/14 at 06:13 pm in response to Minnesotans at Obama's speech speak of hope and dreams

For those who race matters what race did George W. Bush eliminate from the possibility of being President? It is going to be hard to forget George for a very long time. Luckily not presidents, but Tim Pawlenty nor Michelle Bachmann have done us any favors either. I guess political philosophy matters.

he is just reflecting the Republican's long history of being against everything. Without any positive Republican leadership all the Republican's can do is say "no" because they can't come up with any viable ideas of their own. They are too busy working on their social engineering projects in Minnesota and across the country. Every ten Republicans feel they are the Republican party. That is why the public got 4 different responses to the President's State of the Union speech. It was a...

Posted on 02/21/14 at 09:04 am in response to Bachmann: Obama election due to 'guilt'

As usual Bachmann has it wrong. No pent up desire for a woman president was the feeling she got after her very brief ineffective presidential run. Her presidential run wasn't a vote against a woman it was specifically a vote against her nonsense. Bachmann should look around and she will notice there isn't a republican party anymore. No one can tell you who their leader is, what they are for, or even what they are against. State of the Union response required four different people with...

Posted on 02/16/14 at 06:41 pm in response to Five dead in Minneapolis fire

The leadership of the Minneapolis/St. Paul archdiocese is not helping the damaged image of the Catholic Church. Not quite what the public expects of them. After they were ordered to testify under oath they fight the order stating transparency is the issue. If it were one or two priests maybe handling in a non-transparent manner would work providing they made meaningful changes so it wouldn’t happen again. The problem is much larger than one or two priests. If they are going to give the...

Posted on 02/13/14 at 05:32 pm in response to Archdiocese reveals it has spent $8.8 million on priest misconduct

The very institution, which above all, is be expected to keep children safe, can't keep them safe. The church is so cloaked in secrecy that when abuse does happen the church can't deal with it in an ethical manner. How does the church preach the word of God and yet it is so weak it can't keep children safe. It takes a court of law to get them to reveal their very sad handling of abuse and expose the cost associated with the abuse. I can't help but wonder what else the church is hiding....

Posted on 02/13/14 at 06:37 pm in response to Marty Seifert: ‘Minnesota government costs too much’

George W. Bush - disaster, Tim Pawlenty - disaster, Scott Walker - disaster, Chris Christie - disaster, Michelle Bachmann - disaster, Mitch McConnell - disaster, Sarah Palin - disaster, Ted Cruz - disaster, Rand Paul - disaster and the list goes on. What they all have in common is they are hardliner political zealots. What the Republican's really need is their political moderates to return. They are the ones able to work with others. They weren't against ideas that were once their own....
