The best line from President Obama’s farewell speech

“Michelle – for the past twenty-five years, you’ve been not only my wife and mother of my children, but my best friend. You took on a role you didn’t ask for and made it your own with grace and grit and style and good humor. You made the White House a place that belongs to everybody. And a new generation sets its sights higher because it has you as a role model. You’ve made me proud. You’ve made the country proud.”

      1. Here’s a good summary from the New York TImes titled “What We Know and Don’t Know About the Trump-Russia Dossier”:

  1. Just “some” of what is missed in all this is—- Who the hell would have wanted to be President in 2008? After Bush, Cheney crapped on good intelligence, lied us into war, outed CIA agents for contradicting them (Cheney directed Novack by pulling his strings like a violin) , ran the economy into the tank so tax payers would bail out Wall Street, fire every US Attorney in the country who wasn’t on their “side” ( Carol Lamb in San Diego for prosecuting Randy Duke Cunningham for being a treasonous bastard) , and then the “Justice Department” prosecutes Martha Stewart to put their priorities in order? And today? The Republicans won’t even say the word Bush as if he were written out of history— at least in their book.
    Trumps not fit to be Obama’s butler.
