Having people with money, influence, and power on your side to get things done is not a bad idea.

Especially when your opponent will have people against you who will have money, influence, and power working against you. Better to vote for the power that is on your side than the power that is not.

So is Obama admin trying to help Trump get elected? Why the school bathroom announcement now?

This just gives Trump and the GOP another issue for the RW base to get hysterical over and pushes more of them to become more involved? Timing is everything, folks. This is bad timing.

Anybody else beside me think Paul Ryan should pack it up do a Boehner and go home and enjoy his

family? Otherwise I don't see a win for him no matter what he does regarding Trump. He would at least save his own credibility with those afraid to go against Trump.

they always go after the most vulnerable: GOP wins first round agains Obamacare subsidies

to low income people. How do you like them now, W.VA voters? Your subsidies are about to be eliminated by the GOP.

I'll be glad when they break up the big banks so we can see that nothing changes on issues that

really matter to people...like racism, discrimination in the workplace, low wages, tax breaks for the wealthy, loan sharks, poor education, too high rent and housing costs. Then maybe we can get on with useful changes in legislation and injustice.

Trump is lying through his teeth to his rabid supporters and they don't even care.

He will change on a dime and is already caving to the establishment. He will be paid back all his "loaned" money to his campaign and he will be using big money donors to finish his campaign in Nov. He will not release his tax returns that shows how he games the system and pays almost no taxes, he will not reverse Roe vs Wade, and he will continue to do trade deals with China where his brand is made and sold back int he US and he will continue to hire low paid immigrants in jobs across the nation.

But that is ok cause he ain't Obama and he sure ain't Hillary.

My fantasy thoughts for the evening on why the GOP will quickly unify behind Trump.

The Ryan-GOP group meeting with the Donald tomorrow morning will exit the meeting as one big loving family. Know why?

Because they are desperate to WIN the WH in November. It is a must or bust!

Why? Because the vulture capitalists and their colleagues are busting at the seems with all the money they have been hoarding for the past 7 years with Obama in the White House. They have been withholding investment in all kinds of things in fear of spurring the economy forward under Obama’s administration. Off-shore hiding places are becoming risky and they are losing valuable POWER by having to hold onto their obscene wealth. Their investments give them power and they have had to lay low for seven years and it is virtually killing them.

They are frantic to beat Hillary and put a GOPer in the WH…even Trump…so that they can open up the investment spigots, create jobs at a booming pace, so they can claim that Obama was a failure and only the GOP can save the country from economic ruin. This would insure their control of government for the next 16 years.

They cannot hold onto the dormant money much longer…it is driving them crazy. They certainly don’t Hillary in to get any credit but they may have to settle for that. To the GOP hard core that is better than having to turn the investments loose under Obama.

They will be united embarking from this meeting, make no mistake about it. And they will be doing everything within their power win in November including lie, cheat, and steal.
