Koch puppet, Governor Sam Brownback is so hated in Kansas that even his hand-picked conservative Republicans are trying to distance themselves from him.

Last headline I saw in the grocery store before the ice storm was that he's trying to loot KPERS, the State Pension Fund, to make up for the deficits.

To give you an idea of how bad it is for Brownback in his own Republican state of Kansas--

Brownback has a 5% satisfaction rating compared to a 21% satisfaction rating for Obama from an academic in- state poll, the Docking Institute Poll.

 

How did moderate GOP candidates that took a stance against Brownback and his handling of the budget \ taxes do in the 2016 state elections?   

 

I read that this was key to stopping the clown from causing more and more harm.

Princess: Christina Cassidy, AP, had an interesting article in paper I got today. "States can offer GOP a lesson about deep tax cuts." She used Indiana, Oklahoma and Kansas as examples of how they failed. As you know, Kansas was the worst failure of the tax cut programs.
Interestingly, the Republicans in those states are now advocating for tax increases.

In Kansas we had our first female governor in the 1990s and her name was Joan Finney.

Joan was originally a Republican for many years - - and she was glad to tell anyone who would listen that she became a Democrat because the Republican power Brokers in the state of Kansas were made up of men who kept her locked out.

As a Democrat she was able to be Secretary of State and then to become our first female governor.

After that we had a second female governor - - Kathleen Sebelius, who became the Secretary of Health and Human Services under Obama and was responsible for launching Obamacare.

What other reasons for her overwhelming lack of support from the GOP????   Uh,  last time I checked Hillary was a member of the Democratic party.

 

Really I don't think it was sexism for most members of the GOP,  but instead because she was a Dem,  a Clinton and appeared to want to carry on with the Obama agenda.   

 

Again,  I assume if someone didn't want a women President they wouldn't want a black President;  I.e. they would want the President to be like ALL other Presidents were before Obama;  A white male of European ancestry.

 

Also, why did you avoid the point that Clinton would have won if those that voted for Obama in 2008 or 2012 had voted in 2016 for her?   What is your theory on why these people did NOT support Hillary?     

 

He was talking about Elizabeth Dole. You two got your wires crossed.

"Evidence", Mr. Mason?

 

I'd think the overwhelming lack of support from the GOP in spite of her federal experience under pres. Reagan and H.W.Bush as Secretary of Labor and Secretary of Transportation and her years of work in the FTC under Nixon would have given her the experience to handle the job of POTUS with even handed levelheadedness.  She had FAR more knowledge of how the whole system worked, and knew how to deal with the various departments than either Bush or McCain.  But THOSE two wound up sparring for the nomination.. So, what other reason COULD there be?

 

I mean, wasn't it mostly republicans that worked so hard to quash the ERA?  And Dole's support of women's rights too, probably helped freeze her out.  I mean, nobody ever accused PHILLIS SCHLAFLY and MARTHA MITCHELL of being "liberal".  They didn't call Dole that either.  At least, not to her face.

 

She's a smart woman in politics.  And that scares the "old boy" network to death!

I know this is a bit "off thread", but a thought occured to me:

 

It wan't  the e-Mails, Bengazhi, or being Bill Clinton's wife why many Trump Supporters and even some democrats moved over to his side that defeated HILLARY CLINTON..

 

If she had won, she'd have made history as the nation's first WOMAN PRESIDENT.  And it was the WOMAN PRESIDENT possibility that  many just couldn't bring themselves to accept.  Mostly republicans.  It would have been an historical  achievement, and THEY didn't make it!  They blew THEIR chance for it when they muscled ELIZABETH DOLE out of the 2000 primaries.  And I would have chosen HER over AL GORE anytime!

 

Instead, we wound up with Shrub.  :(

What actual evidence (e.g. polling data), do you have to make the assumption that 'mostly republicans' wouldn't vote for a women as President? 

 

Of course SOME sexist morons believe that but I would hope it was few.     Instead I see other reasons like Hillary Clinton was just not likeable.      In addition a key reason she lost was that people that voted for Obama in either 2008  or 2012 did NOT vote for Clinton.  Many of these folks didn't vote at all.      I find it hard to believe many people that voted for Obama are not racist but are sexist.

Your comment belongs over with the rest of the discussion on Donald Trump--

In response to you I could say that Trump had so much racism in his campaign that often it's forgotten how much hatred of women he displayed.

Seeing women as sex objects and seeing women simply as not on the same level as men was obvious in his comments about the Hispanic beauty queen and in his comments in the van about his sexual assaults on women.

The Dual opportunity for people who voted for Trump was they had not only the opportunity to display their racism, but also their hatred of women. You gotta say that's truly deplorable.

Sep- - if you think anybody's interested in the subject you can certainly start a thread on misogyny in the Donald Trump campaign and in Donald Trump's own life.

Before I knew anything about him really or had any interest in him, I was well aware of his poor treatment of his wives. But to hear him bragging about sexually assaulting absolutely strange women in public places that even shocked me. He's no role model for anybody.

Thanks to LornaHansonForbes for pointing the way to this web site ...

 

http://www.areyousorryyet.com

 

It contains pre election tweets from hopeful Trump supporters juxtaposed with post election tweets from the same but now regretful supporters.

 

A collection of regretful Trump voters.

 

Here is one little taste ...

The Scottish newspaper, Sunday Herald, just brutally made fun of president-elect Donald Trump in their TV listing section of the publication.

Here’s how they describe the event:

“President Trump: The Inauguration (4pm, BBC One/STV)

After a long absence, The Twilight Zone returns.....

 

Today’s feature-length opener concentrates on the gaudy inauguration of President Trump, and the stirrings of protest and despair surrounding the ceremony, while pundits speculate gravely on what lies ahead. It’s a flawed piece, but a disturbing glimpse of the horrors we could stumble into, if we’re not careful.”

Trump could say the same thing about John Lewis with his Twitter attack: "He started it!"

"...Yet as I watched Donald Trump’s press conference on Wednesday morning, a performance reminiscent of PT Barnum — if Barnum suffered from Attention Deficit Disorder, congenital petulance and anger management issues — I was reminded of a different Dr. Seuss masterwork:

Yertle the Turtle.

Yertle, you see, is the king of the pond “on the faraway island of Sala-ma-Sond.” But not content with the size of his smallish but prosperous domain, he orders nine other turtles to climb on one another’s backs to create a new throne much higher than before so he can have a more expansive view and rule over it all.

 

“All mine!” Yertle cried. “Oh, the things I now rule!

I’m the king of a cow! And I’m the king of a mule!

I’m the king of a house! And, what’s more, beyond that

I’m the king of a blueberry bush and a cat!

I’m Yertle the Turtle! Oh, marvelous me!....

Nip--

I want to remind you that This Thread is for quotes about Donald Trump.

If you want to respond to another poster's comment that's okay.

Responding to a quote which has been posted is not a viable or germane post.

If you want to discuss the merits-- the pros and cons-- of each and every quote, then I would suggest that you start your own thread to do that.

yes, ma'am. :)
