No Sympathy for the Hillbilly

Hillbilly: anyone who lives 100 miles outside an urban toilet.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid Rants: Trump Supporters Racist, Want ‘All Brown People’ Off Obamacare

MSNBC’s Joy Reid blessed the airwaves with two anti-Republican rants in less than 24 hours. She really wanted to make sure everyone was aware that Donald Trump supporters are racist and don’t want black people to be healthy.
“What I think is stunning, Chris, about today is that the Republican party learned absolutely nothing from the election of Donald Trump, including Donald Trump. Donald Trump won in the Rust Belt in those states saying he was going to repeal and replace Obamacare because at the time, we thought he understood that his voters hated the ‘Obama’ but they liked the ‘care.’
Reid continued saying Trump failed to keep up his anti-establishment persona by getting into bed with Paul Ryan and his “life-long dream” of tearing down social safety nets. She said Trump ran on, “I alone can fix this.”
And then, still high from being on her high horse, Reid continued rambling on her morning show on Saturday, AM Joy, and welcomed New York magazine columnist Frank Rich to talk about his article, “No Sympathy for the Hillbilly.” (See the connection?)
“After the election, the Democratic party self-diagnosis produced a number of conclusions to explain what went wrong,” Reid began the segment. “The one you probably hear the most often focuses on Democrats’ lack of empathy and appeal to the white working class voters who propelled Donald Trump to victory in unlikely Rust Belt states like Wisconsin and Michigan and Pennsylvania. And Democratic leaders have been trying to answer the question of how to turn those Republican voters back into Democrats.”

One disability all liberals are afflicted with is the inability to accept reality. From the pseudo-intellectuals fresh from their Ivy League indoctrination center with bachelor’s degree in Women’s Studies, to the multimillionaire high school dropouts in Beverly Hills who get millions from saying lines someone else wrote, they all share the same flawed view of the people who make this country work.
We are taught to obey the law, be good role models for our kids, and never depend on the government for your success.
They tell us we must accept our wives and granddaughters sharing a bathroom with a bearded man with body odor.
Christians student are not allowed to have prayer groups in school, but the two Muslim students get their own prayer room. They whine about us being intolerant.
We watch blacks murder police officers and when one of these jackals pays the price, there are riots, looting, and burning. And we are called racists.
We object to hordes of mostly men flooding across our porous borders to live off taxpayer money, raping, murdering Muslim terrorists among them, others taking jobs to send money back to Spanish-speaking shitholes. And we are called xenophobes.
Their presidential candidate was so arrogant she never bothered visiting ‘safe buffer states’ like Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. When November 8 came around we expressed how WE felt about THEM the only effective way we could. And we did. About 65 million of us.

Makes sense to me

Good read below.  I am not savvy enough to have actually predicted it, but after watching Lincoln (2012),  it was more or less what I was expecting.  If you haven’t seen this wonderful movie, I highly recommend you do.

Obamacare by Terrell

From Joel B. Pollak, Senior Editor-at-Large at Breitbart News and author of How Trump Won: The Inside Story of a Revolution —

Exactly two weeks ago, this author predicted the defeat of the American Health Care Act — and explained that it was a step towards the final, actual deal that will repeal and replace Obamacare.

President Donald Trump faces three irreconcilable factions: the GOP establishment, conservatives, and Democrats. He must bring them together — to “deliver the goods,” a key rule in The Art of the Deal. But first he must show them “the downside” — and convince them they will fail on their own.

[CtH: This is what I saw in Lincoln … a Republican president determined to get his bill passed through a Congress divided into a hostile Democrat minority, and a two-faction Republican majority.]

The most difficult faction to deal with is the Republican establishment — not because they are politically strong, but because on policy issues like health care, they are convinced that they have all the answers and that Trump just does not understand.

So he let them make the first move …

Let the Budget Battle Begin

The president will reveal his budget today. Much of what he is proposing is already known. The democrat objections are pre-written and Kermit and Big Bird are ready to go on TV and whine about having their funding cut. From all quarters of the liberal world will come a hue and cry not heard by anybody who has not thrown boiling water on a cat or been in close proximity to a slaughterhouse. It is predictable as the sunrise.

Trump budget expected to seek historic contraction of federal workforce
President Trump’s budget proposal this week would shake the federal government to its core if enacted, culling back numerous programs and expediting a historic contraction of the federal workforce.
This would be the first time the government has executed cuts of this magnitude — and all at once — since the drawdown following World War II, economists and budget analysts said.


The America First budget: Trump wants $1.5 BILLION for the wall and cash for the military but will slash foreign aid and eliminate funding for PBS and NPR
Trump will release a budget blueprint today that makes cuts to discretionary spending to fund his border wall and the military build-up he’s been promising
State Department is cut deepest with a 28% reduction to its foreign aid division
The Environmental Protection Agency and the Housing and Urban Development Department are also expected to suffer
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which provides support to NPR and PBS, will see its funding phased out
Trump’s budget may not make it past the House and Senate – a top Republican has said it’s ‘dead on arrival’
Dramatic cuts make way room for $1.5B for his wall with Mexico in 2018 and $54 billion for defense without adding to the federal deficit


VICTIMS ON PARADE

Trump’s First Budget Promises To Beef Up National Security, Dramatically Cut Domestic Spending
If you find a $54 billion addition, you will find a $54 billion reduction,” he said. “We have simply not added to the deficit in order to accomplish these policies. You’ll see reductions in the State Department, the Environmental Protection Agency, and in many agencies, as he tries to shrink the role of the federal government.”

The way this works is Trump proposes his budget to actually bring some sanity to federal spending.This,of course,will never fly.Taxpayer giveaways are the mothers’ milk of politics,especially in the democrat party.There will be argument over cuts,the left will threaten to shut down the government and with the help of the media whores republicans will be blamed.It’s happened before and the GOP has always backed down.it will be interesting to see how this president handles it.

Winning

So who’s winning? Barack Obama.
Yesterday Gutfeld described him as the hero at the end of the action movie who’s walking away, the bad guys’ fortress ablaze in the background. That’s how he left the White House. In shambles, full of land mines, with an army of dedicated agents ready to leak vital or damaging information at every turn to a media slavishly devoted to bringing the new president down. He sits in a mansion less than 2 miles away commanding a trained force of agitators, anarchists, and paid protesters ready to assail any republican who dares make a public appearance.

Report: Economy Adds 300,000 Jobs In President Trump’s First Month In Office
Great news, right? I mentioned this to my friend Willie the political idolater today. His answer was it was the result of Obama’s genius economic plan. For just as he used the “mess Bush left him” for his 8 long years of misery and economic stagnation he will now get credit from the media whores for any positive sign of economic growth. Can’t very well give Trump credit for knowing anything, now can they?
The CBO made their report on the AHCA yesterday. While it saves almost a half trillion dollars over 10 years the focus from the left was on the estimated 14 million who will lose coverage this year and the 26 million over 10 years that they claim will be left out. Of course, the first one with his ugly puss in front of the cameras was Schmuckie Schumer. That’s nothing new. The ‘non-partisan” office (there’s not a damn thing non-partisan in this town) is only as accurate as the information it’s given. The Obama crime family blatantly lied about the numbers so the estimate was off by at least $115 billion.

Same CBO That Praised Obamacare and Was Off by $115 Billion Pans GOP Healthcare Bill Today
In March 2010 leading democrats and their lackeys in the state-run media were “just giddy” to report that the CBO crunched some numbers and found the nationalized health care bill they were pushing would reduce the deficit by $138 billion.
It was a lie. Democrats knew it was a lie.
But, after several backroom deals, they rammed the bill through Congress anyway.
Then in May of 2010 the CBO corrected the numbers and said Obamacare will cost taxpayers at least $115 billion more than promised. Democrats pulled a fast one on the American public.
Republican Senators pointed out the deceit in a 2010 video:

Democrats promised that Obamacare would cost $940 billion when they rammed it through Congress. The actual cost has gone up with each revision.
A recent report says Obamacare will cost $2.6 trillion – nearly three times as much as Democrats predicted.
Today the far left CBO panned the Republican healthcare bill.
The Trump White House slammed the CBO’s report.

The plan is already facing resistance from conservatives who say the bill doesn’t go far enough, while more moderate Republicans have expressed concern about the bill’s defunding of Planned Parenthood and the rollback of expanded access to Medicaid.

THE MAIN DIFFERENCE IS THAT THE REPUBLICANS WANT TO PASS HEALTHCARE THAT ACTUALLY WORKS.
As I said yesterday, the democrats shoved a monstrosity through without debate so they could avoid the reconciliation process. They knew once they got it in, it would be almost impossible to remove, as are all government giveaway programs.

Obamacare Victims Tell Their Horror Stories at The White House
TRUMP, UNLIKE HIS PREDECESSOR, DOESN’T DELUDE HIMSELF THINKING HE KNOWS MORE THAN ANYBODY ABOUT ANYTHING. HE WANTS INPUT TO MAKE THE MOST INFORMED DECISIONS POSSIBLE.
“Our rates are three times what they were before Obamacare started. We have one provider in the county,” Carrie Couey of Colorado said. “We have very little options for what we can and cannot do. We are a small business, but we aren’t brick and mortar we are cattle ranchers. We can’t afford our equipment anymore if we’re paying these rates year after year after year. Our food source is in jeapardy because of this heath care law.”

NATURALLY, THE MEDIA WERE THERE TO PISS IN THE PUNCHBOWL
CNN Cuts Trump’s Feed During Obamacare Victims Meeting

NOT THE FIRST TIME — THEY MAKE A PRACTICE OF CUTTING OFF OPINIONS THEY DON’T AGREE WITH
Compilation of CNN Cutting Off Feeds Of People Who Go Against The Narrative

All the while, Obama sits back, smiles, and contemplates how to spend the $60 million he’ll rake in to write a bunch of lies (or have Bill Ayers do it for him) and watch his minions do his dirty work.

Peters: Obama Admin’s ‘Cowardice’ Blew Chance to Get Rid of Bashar al-Assad
HE COULD NOT DO THAT TO A BROTHER MUSLIM

HE NEVER CARED ABOUT THE COMMON PEOPLE. THAT’S WHY HIS PARTY GOT CRUSHED

The GOP’s ObamaCare replacement will boost jobs and cut taxes
Ignore the grandstanding on Capitol Hill and the noise coming from townhall protests around the nation. The Republican bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare will boost your chances of getting a job and cut your tax bill, not to mention your insurance costs.
The repeal bill — called the American Health Care Act — also will stave off a tidal wave of future Medicaid spending that threatens to drown the states and Uncle Sam in red ink.

Was Obama simply a hoax?
We have The New York Post and we have Fox News, but after that we are in a wilderness of deception. No one knows where the truth lies.
The revelation making the rounds again about Obama, how he sneaked through $221 million to his terrorist friends the Palestinian Authority during the last hours of his presidency, makes it elaborately clear that he was always in it for himself and for his pals.
For eight years Israel was betrayed and America was duped by a charmer.
He armed Iran to the teeth. The mullahs grow bolder and now Obama’s generosity is President Trump’s problem. Where did Obama get the money to enrich all those terrorists? Came from our pockets – the Constitution be damned, according to Obama and the news media that babied him every single day for eight years.
All by himself Obama proclaimed that he did not even need Congress. He said, “I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone” – so forget the rules.
So much, then, for the claim that Obama did not have the Constitutional right to wiretap Trump….which is the hot news of the day.
That assumes that Obama as President cared about the Constitution, taught the Constitution, or ever learned the Constitution.

A Post of No Import

Let’s make something perfectly clear: Obamacare is a disaster. It was designed to be. When for-profit healthcare providers are forced to compete with the government juggernaut the outcome is predetermined. All the democrats cared about was getting something in place because they knew full well that once a government program is instituted it never, ever goes away. They did not anticipate the republicans taking over all three branches of government as soon as they did, but they were only too happy to hand this convoluted mess over and let the GOP worry about doing something with it while they sit back, obstruct, and criticize every move that the republicans make to try to fulfill their promise to their voters.

MILLIONS OF AMERICANS FELL ASLEEP CHRISTMAS EVE 2010, DREAMING OF A VISIT FROM SANTA CLAUS, ATTENDING CHURCH SERVICES, AND ANTICIPATING FAMILY GET-TOGETHERS. WHAT THEY FOUND WHEN THEY WOKE UP WAS THAT THEIR HEALTH CARE PLANS, MANY THAT COVERED THE MEDICATION AND TREATMENT THEY NEEDED TO STAY ALIVE, HAD BEEN RIPPED AWAY FROM THEM AND GOVERNMENT CARE HAD BEEN SHOVED DOWN THEIR THROATS, BECAUSE IT SUITED ONE MISERABLE BASTARD’S DREAM OF CONTROLLING EVERYONE’S LIVES.

Cory Booker: Republicans Cannot Just Force GOP Healthcare Bill Down Our Throats
THIS RACE-BAITING MORON IS BEING TOUTED AS THE DEMS’ CANDIDATE FOR 2020

I don’t know everything about the competing versions of the American Health Care Act, as it’s being called, But there are two competing versions being considered. One is the brainchild of Paul Ryan. I’ve stated before and likely will again that his district is just north of me and is heavily democratic. Once he’s gone that district will never elect another republican. His family has been there for many, many years so he’s like the neighborhood kid everybody knows. His only risk is becoming too conservative, so never be fooled into thinking he’s anything but a moderate democrat posing as a republican.

Obamacare Creators Tell GOP: We Told You So
“Maybe I should just say karma is a serious thing,” said Neera Tanden, who was a top health official in the Obama administration. “Health care is hard. Governing is hard. And Republicans are now living with the fruits of never putting forward a plan and making promises they can’t keep.”

It’s a strange place to be for the Democratic operatives and elected officials who saw their party devastated in part by Obamacare. And some can’t help but feel a bit of cosmic justice as they watch Republicans, who passed their plan Friday in the House Ways and Means Committee, stuck in a policy quagmire they know all too well.

Jonathan Gruber, an MIT economist who helped design the Affordable Care Act, said health care policy is both extremely complicated and extraordinarily personal.

“It’s healthcare, it should be easy. Everyone goes to the doctor. But it’s super hard,” Gruber said. “As a result, it’s easy to demonize everything.”

Ryan Warns: If We Don’t Pass My Bill, ‘The System Is Going to Collapse’
Look, when you are a governing party getting consensus among your wide, big-tent party, not — everybody doesn’t get what they want, but we are getting much better policy here,” the Speaker of the House said of his conservative critics. “Let me put it this way: Obamacare is collapsing. If we just did nothing, washed our hands of the situation, we would see a further collapse of the health insurance markets. So we feel an obligation to step in front of that collapse and replace this law with one that works, that has more freedom.”

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) is another Republican critic of Ryan’s handling of ObamaCare’s repeal. He says Ryan’s bill makes the current problems in ObamaCare even worse, and is calling to slow down the process.

Cotton: AHCA will end the GOP House majority, cannot pass in Senate

UNDERSTAND, ANY ACTION THAT REQUIRES AS MUCH AS A SINGLE DEMOCRAT VOTE HAS NO CHANCE OF PASSING. THEY WILL GIVE TRUMP NOTHING. NOT AN INCH. NO HEARING, NO COMPROMISE, JUST ATTACK, ATTACK, ATTACK.
“I would say to my friends in the House of Representatives with whom I serve, ‘Do not walk the plank and vote for a bill that cannot pass the Senate and then have to face the consequences of that vote,” Cotton told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos. …

On “This Week,” Cotton said, “I just do not think that this bill can pass the Senate, and therefore I think the House should take a pause and try to get as close as we can to a good result before we send it to the Senate.”

Paul Ryan Confronts Healthcare Bill Critics: “Everybody Doesn’t Get What They Want”

Exclusive–Rep. Dave Brat: RyanCare a Perverse Economic System
Brat said the speaker is worried about the insurance companies, who backed the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, because the system they created cannot be sustained because of its perverse incentives, regulations, and costs.

In addition to the flaws in the Obamacare legislation and buildout, the congressman said it is foolish to attempt a political solution to an economic problem that forces you to accommodate the needs and values of 300 million Americans — such as people in both California and Texas — at the same time.

Obama admin spent $77M to hype ObamaCare in 2016
They show the federal government contracted with Democratic-leaning p.r. firm Weber Shandwick to spend $74.15 million on July 28, 2016, and another $3.69 million on Sept. 9, 2016, promoting the plan.

Of that, $64 million funded an advertising blitz — including TV, digital and radio — $4 million went to creative development and production, $5 million to direct response marketing, $2 million to campaign strategy, $1 million to branding and $1.5 million to encourage small business enrollment.

An official of the current White House dismissed the Obama administration’s last-ditch efforts to try to swell enrollment numbers.
Tens of millions in hard-earned taxpayer funds spent on TV ads won’t sell a fundamentally flawed approach to health care,” the official told The Post.

Ted Cruz uses brilliant legal mind to help solve Obamacare ‘repeal and replace’ dilemma
Conservatives such as the Texas Republican believe that the House’s three-tier approach to the bill doesn’t go nearly far enough to address the concerns of Americans seeking an affordable choice for medical insurance.
And it all hinges on neither Congress nor even the White House — but rather Vice President Mike Pence, a person often overlooked.
House Republicans chose the three-tier approach, knowing that Senate rules dispense with filibuster on matters concerning taxation or the budget under a procedure called reconciliation.

It normally takes 60 votes in the Senate to override a filibuster; reconciliation requires a mere simple majority of 51. Republicans hold 52 seats in the Senate.

With that in mind, the first tier of the House bill deals only with financial matters and is silent on those issues popular with conservatives — including tort reform and the ability to purchase insurance across state lines.

Cruz argued that as president of the Senate, Pence has the authority to overrule the Senate parliamentarian and permit what are normally thought as non-budgetary issues to be addressed.

Stilton’s take on RINOcare

CtH: Having been disabled lo these many decades, I have been on Medicare since forever.  IOW, I’ve got no skin in this game and zero knowledge worth imparting.  However, I did really appreciate reading something that made some kind of sense AND that wasn’t all hair-on-fire hate about the proposed plan.

2017_03 10 Details by Stilton

Stilton:  Donald Trump and the Republicans have rolled out their initial plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, but for many Trump voters the plan (the first of three steps intended to address all aspects of reforming the ACA) isn’t finding acceptance.

Why? Because they know (correctly) that Obamacare is riddled with serious problems and is harming our healthcare system and they voted to get rid of Obamacare in its entirety. And that’s by God what they want!

Unfortunately, the reality of the situation is very much akin to the scenario depicted above: if you simply cut out the problems all at once with no replacement ready, the patient will die. And in this case, the bloodsoaked, flailing patient happens to be your health insurance.

We can’t simply return to “the way things used to be” because Obamacare destroyed that system. It’s gone. Kaput. It is not simply pining for the fjords, but has joined the choir eternal. Which is why doing an immediate and total fix is practically and politically impossible.

Rather, we need to accept (unhappily, and perhaps with an adult beverage in hand) that the Republicans only have two choices right now: a series of slow and messy patches to Obamacare that will gradually push the insurance industry back toward free market solutions, or a quick amputation of Obamacare in its entirety which will accelerate the industry’s crash and make single-payer care inevitable.

We don’t have to like those choices, but to deny that those are the choices can only lead to disaster.

The Most Amazing Speech — A Synopsis

Apologies in advance for the probable mess this is going to be. In full disclosure I’d managed to miss every presidential speech over the past eight years. This was due in large part to the fact his voice made me sick to my stomach and the lies that poured out of his skull gave me constipation.

THE ENTIRE EVENING WRAPPED UP IN TWO IMAGES:

I WATCHED THE ENTIRE SPEECH. TEARS WERE ROLLING DOWN MY FACE WHEN HE RECOGNIZED THIS BEAUTIFUL WIFE OF A SLAIN WARRIOR

Widow of Navy SEAL killed in Yemen hailed by Trump

Of all the moments from President Trump’s first address to Congress, the most riveting piece of political theater was his tribute to the widow of fallen Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens. The president’s critics and supporters alike admired it.

Midway through his speech, the president gestured to Owens‘ widow, Carryn, who was a guest in the balcony seated with presidential daughter Ivanka Trump.

“We are blessed to be joined tonight by Carryn Owens,” Mr. Trump said. “Ryan died as he lived: a warrior, and a hero –- battling against terrorism and securing our nation. Ryan’s legacy is etched into eternity. For as the Bible teaches us, there is no greater act of love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. Ryan laid down his life for his friends, for his country, and for our freedom –- we will never forget him.”

Pelosi and House Dems to Wear White in Protest of Trump

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell asked Pelosi, who was wearing white and purple, about how Democrats would behave during Trump’s speech and if her wearing white was a form of silent protest.
Pelosi however, used a different term to refer to her decision to wear white and purple.
“It’s not even a protest. It’s a statement of values,” Pelosi said. “It associates ourselves with our suffragette mothers, the color of white, the color purple.”

She explained that, after a while, the friend will put two and two together and leave the “jerk” boyfriend.
“You can’t tell her that,” Pelosi said. “She has to find out for herself. You can give her clues and then eventually one thing will lead to another, she’ll come to her conclusion.”

Voters say Democrats hurting party, nation with scorched-earth anti-Trump tactics: Poll

trumpThe Democratic Party’s never-ending anti-Trump siege isn’t just bad for the country, it’s also hurting Democrats with the voters.
A Rasmussen Reports poll released Tuesday found that 63 percent of those surveyed said it was better for the country as well as the Democratic Party for Democrats to work with President Trump instead of countering him at every turn.
Just 29 percent agreed that it’s better for the party and the nation for Democrats to oppose Mr. Trump “in every way possible.”

Trump just delivered the best speech of his political career
Donald Trump gave the best speech of his short political life last night, and it had nothing to do with grand oratory. He was thoroughly presidential, speaking plainly and yet masterfully in projecting an optimistic vision of the America he aims to build.
It is a vision so optimistic and encompassing that even steaming Democrats had to join boisterous Republicans in the applause at times.

In an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal in October of 2014, Denisha said Florida’s tax-credit scholarship program “saved” her.
“Today, she is the first in her family to graduate, not just from high school, but from college,” Trump continued. “Later this year she will get her masters degree in social work.”

President Trump orders federal agency for ‘American victims’ of crimes committed by ‘illegal’ immigrants
A chorus of boos arose after President Trump announced during his Tuesday speech before Congress that he will install an office specifically serving victims of “illegal” immigrants.
“I have ordered the Department of Homeland Security to create an office to serve American victims,” Trump said, prompting groans and boos from assembled Democrats. “The office is called VOICE — Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement. We are providing a voice to those who have been ignored by our media, and silenced by special interests.”
The President didn’t deliberate on what exact role the “VOICE” office would play, but instead turned the attention to four audience members: Jamiel Shaw, Susan Oliver, Jenna Oliver and Jessica Davis.

Pelosi Doesn’t Clap After Trump Talks About American Job Creation

Trump’s speech and our infantile left
Like spoiled children who had not gotten their way, they refused to applaud at the most obvious good-for-the-country lines. In fact, they were like a clique of mean girls in middle school who have decided to target one of their own.
They knew what they were hearing was monumental and good for the nation. But consumed in schoolyard jealousy, they got angry, not glad. In doing so, they showed no intention of working “with” President Trump. They are still scrambling for, and planning to sabotage him any way they can.
They proved one thing: They do not have America’s best interests at heart.

Trump: ‘My Job is Not to Represent the World; My Job is to Represent the United States of America’
And, in a line that drew strong applause – although only from the Republican side of the chamber – he added, “My job is not to represent the world; my job is to represent the United States of America.”
While Democratic lawmakers gave a tepid response to that part of Tuesday night’s speech, they did join in a standing ovation when Trump endorsed the historic alliance with NATO, though tempered with a nudge for allies to pay more.
“We expect our partners,” the president continued, “whether in NATO, in the Middle East, or the Pacific, to take a direct and meaningful role in both strategic and military operations, and pay their fair share of the cost. Have to do that.”

The Democratic Party members watching that speech looked like a party of the living dead. They didn’t know how to react. They didn’t know if they were Americans. They didn’t know who they were.
Every time Trump called for bipartisanship for the good of our country, they winced. They couldn’t stand it and didn’t know how to react because they are the least bipartisan people in the world and they scarcely know what cooperating is.

Hilarious: Trump’s Speech So Powerful, Person Who Delivered Dem Response Now Calls Himself A Republican

The Democratic Rebuttal To Trump’s Speech Is Everything Wrong With The Democratic Party
Beshear giving the speech is in itself an admission of failure. You know who’s not giving the speech? The young, promising, telegenic former Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway, who was the presumptive heir to Beshear’s office until he was defeated by double digits by Tea Party candidate Matt Bevin.
Polling for Medicaid expansion and KYnect (the Kentucky exchange) is not as terrible as it is elsewhere, which is not saying much. But it also can’t be ignored that the state elected Bevin, who ran on dismantling the whole thing.
The Republican Party still faces political landmines in its tricky repeal-and-replace plan. But on Tuesday, a septuagenarian former Kentucky governor with a folksy demeanor was simultaneously a laudable recognition by the Democratic Party of who it needs to reach and a devastating admission of how ill-equipped they are to do so. The future’s so bright, they gotta wear bifocals.
