Via Facebook, I read several vile lib reactions – but I repeat myself.
Sen. Reid wants Rep Grayson to drop out of FL senate race. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/02/12/sen-harry-reid-calls-on-grayson-to-drop-out-senate-race.html?intcmp=hplnws. Extraordinary. The dirt on Grayson must be really thick.
The Federalist notes (http://thefederalist.com/2016/02/11/times-barack-obama-rhetoric-made-politics-more-civil/) 14 times the President made politics less civil. 14 does not seem like it would cover all of the instances.
I really do not believe that supporters of reparations can expect some kind of cash deal. Others have explained the complications better than me; what if you are an immigrant after date X; should descendants of Union soldiers get discount, etc. Unworkable. The real goal is a pile of money ($500 million should do) and control of the board of directors to dispense the money as they see fit, eg, support education, employment training, *influencing power*, etc.
Early returns showing people extrapolating wildly from wins by Sanders and Trump. But they have been favorites there for weeks. What is the surprise?
He has got a point about immigration, but is a menace re property rights for unpowerful citizens. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2016/02/06/donald-trumps-lightweight-defense-of-taking-property-for-private-projects/
I do not think this is the flexibility that the President was looking for. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/feb/5/obama-depicted-as-murderous-devil-downtown-moscow/
