Acting Presidential, Whatever That Means 🇺🇸 "One of the things most people assumed had some truth to it, up until now, was that it was very important for a president to “act presidential”, or to conduct himself with “presidential comportment.” That presumably meant that the president needed to be very careful in what he said, to operate above the fray, to avoid inflammatory or divisive language and to maintain a statesmanlike demeanor at all times." "I don’t think it’s a controversial statement to say that Donald Trump does not carry himself with the traditional comportment that’s come to be seen as presidential. He calls people names on Twitter. He goes off on foreign leaders. He casts aspersions on his critics and even attacks his own cabinet members publicly if he doesn’t like the job they’re doing." Good. Glad to see him fight back. It's another code word for political correctness. #MAGA https://hermancain.com/apparently-no-one-much-cares-if-the-president-acts-presidential-whatever-that-means/

Word Games at High Levels 🇺🇸 "It’s becoming undeniable that the left really does live in a place that has little connection to reality." "The data are out there, the reality stares them in the face, yet the left simply refuses to countenance it." "The ensuing mindlessness is the ultimate enemy of liberty. Right here in America, people gave up their own powers of discernment in the face of decades of leftist miseducation and indoctrination in the universities, from which the poison seeped into the media and the government on down to kids in grade school." #WalkAway https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2018/08/word_games_at_high_levels.html

The Case For Jim Jordan to be the Next House Speaker 🇺🇸 "Why are most politicians seemingly allergic to keeping their promises? It’s almost as if we as a society are surprised when something good happens in Washington. In fact, the stereotypical politician is seen as a sly liar who can easily be swayed by big donors and lobbyists while leaving his or her constituents out in the cold." "And yet, we still send the same people back to DC over and over. In fact, according to Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball, over 90% of incumbents were sent back to Washington in 2016. It’s almost as if we don’t care if they lie to us, we just keep hoping they’ll turn a new leaf." The swamp has never drained him. #DrainTheSwamp #JimJordan https://spectator.org/the-case-for-jim-jordan-to-be-the-next-house-speaker/
