On the fifth day of Shutdown

...my true love sent to me:
Five Gloating Libs!
Once again, chickens are being counted before they hatch.

Via Power Line, Thomas Friedman of the New York Times wrote, "I believe that the only responsible choice for the Republican Party today is an intervention with the president that makes clear that if there is not a radical change in how he conducts himself — and I think that is unlikely — the party’s leadership will have no choice but to press for his resignation or join calls for his impeachment."

This is another reminder that Friedman's reaction to 9/11 was to park our cars and hurt the oil oligarchs.

The idea that we could frack our way to energy independence never occurred to him. What a feckless man.

Next Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post wrote, "The chaos all around us is what happens when the nation elects an incompetent, narcissistic, impulsive and amoral man as president.  This Christmas, heaven help us all."

Lost in all this is that Congress has not passed a budget resolution to keep the government open. Without money, President Trump has to close offices. You cannot blame him for vetoing a bill before it passes. Sorry.

Jonah Goldberg wrote in the Los Angeles Times, "As we celebrate Christmastime amid an unnecessary and indefinite government shutdown and the worst December for the stock market since 1931, I'm reminded once again of my longstanding prediction: The Trump presidency will end poorly because character is destiny."

And I am reminded of his comment on Fox News on January 25, 2015, "Donald Trump has a long record of clownishly pretending he’s going to run for president, and people take him seriously — including a lot of people at this network, which drives me crazy. I think Donald Trump is a bane of humanity."

Six months later, after Donald John Trump returned fire, Goldberg wrote, "I guess Trump’s Olympian self-regard can lead him to never forget a slight, harbor grudges against critics for a very long time, and drive him to engage in childish name-calling late into the night, which are obviously some of the attributes we all look for in a presidential candidate. A huge ego and a penchant for spite is totally the kind of guy we should entrust the nuclear football to."

Yes, holding grudges is only for pundits, not presidents. Say, has Obama gotten over Fox News yet?

Via News Busters, Joe Scarborough said, "What does everybody do, working together, to make sure that this administration, which is terminal, does not behave in a way that creates not only a governing crisis but a pandemic, not only across this country, but across the world?"

Yes, let's let the whole world decide who our president is.

And finally, via Breitbart News, Stephen King the novelist tweeted, "Tell your legislators and friends who are Trump supporters that it's time to put partisanship aside. Trump is a train wreck, and the train he's pulling is our country. He has to be removed from office."

I get it. We must remove our duly elected president because electing presidents is not who we are now in the eyes of liberals.

    Hey Gene, why don't you bail out of that Democrat-run cesspool you live in and come out here where we have law and order?

  2. What a bunch of self-absorbed, sanctimonious, sons of bitches. "An incompetent, narcissistic, impulsive and amoral man," is the perfect description of Obama.

    President Trump has done more to help our economy and foreign policy than Obama could have dreamed of. Then again, Obama was actively working against the best interests of the U.S. And the stock market tanking is exactly what we should expect as we jettison the global investment and hedge fund outfits that have had a parasitic effect on our economy. Main Street is coming back strong, as evidenced in retail sales for Christmas.

    I am optimistic. Sooner or later the dam will burst and the Left's sedition and hypocrisy will be exposed for all to see. - Elric

    1. I too hope for your last paragraph to come true. I wait, sometimes impatiently for that day.

  3. Friedman is painful to read, even I. The small dose you quoted.

    I saw that we discovered over 46 Billion barrels of oil in West Texas and New Mexico. Plus 280 trillion cubic feet of natural gas!! Published November 28 by the USGS.
    Friedman wring again. Goldberg wrong again. Scarborough wrong again. King wrong again. Robinson wrong again. MAGA.

    2. Texas and New Mexico need Don Surber.

      The man's just demonstrated his ability to sink five bores at once.

    3. I was going to ask if Tom F was related to Milton F, but the only possible answer could be 'Yeah - he was adopted'.

    4. Dave, the whole freakin COUNTRY needs Don Surber. Seriously, name someone else in the media who has been as early and strong of a Mr. T supporter as Big D. The answer is NOBODY. He is this present moment’s John the Baptist (Don the Baptist?), proclaiming daily the message, “Prepare ye the way of the Trump.”

  4. Tom Friedman is also a guy who idolizes Red China.

  5. NeverTrump and former conservative pundit Jonah Goldberg has parrotted the Lefty media's claim that this December's stock market is the worst since Dec 1931. Let's look at some history: DJIA close in Dec 1931 was 77; this month's close was 22,400+. Also the losses for the year are a rounding error against the current value.

    Facts are stubborn things, as John Adams observed.

  6. The entire concocted menageries of pompous primping putz pukes is roiling madly in the muck of their own suck.

    Media both inhabits the pot and stirs it.

    Like a big pot of turdlings, all bumping and humping each other, they feel the pot heating up, and wail.

    The sweet sournesses in their songs of sorrow have the same effect as the bleatings of the goat have upon the stalking tiger.

    The tiger smiles.
