Bobo has just made an important discovery:  “Republicans Can’t Pass Bills.”  From his fainting couch, clutching his pearls, he tells us that the G.O.P. used to be willing to govern. Not now.  No shit, Sherlock.  “Gemli” from Boston will have a response.  Prof. Krugman, in “Health Care in a Time of Sabotage,” says Republicans are working hard […](image)

Mr. Blow says “Trump Is His Own Worst Enemy,” and there is a profound but predictable obstacle blocking Trump’s legislative agenda: His own incompetence.  In “If Dr. Trump Were Your Surgeon…” Mr. Kristof has come up with a nightmare scenario:  Imagine Republican leaders were in charge of your medical care.  Well, Nick, if you’re a woman […](image)

There was one post yesterday, “The Healthcare Debacle: The Roles of Ignorance and Evil:” The important things to understand about the Republican health care bill are that it is (a) a cruel assault on the health and financial security of tens of millions of Americans (b) being sold via a campaign of lies that is […](image)

Today Bobo’s decided to wring his hands over inequality.  In “Getting Radical About Inequality” he babbles that a French philosopher looked at power struggles, and understanding his thinking might also provide some insight into President Trump.  “Socrates” from Verona, NJ will have something to say.  Here’s Bobo: I’m not in the habit of recommending left-wing French […](image)

Mr. Blow says “Trump Savagely Mauls the Language,” and that listening to the president speak is a dizzying experience for anyone interested in candor, clarity or concision.  Prof. Krugman, in “Republicans Leap Into the Awful Known,” says the terrible truth about their health plans isn’t debatable.  Here’s Mr. Blow: I know that there are things of […](image)

There was one post yesterday, “Ted Cruz’s Giant Leap Into the Known:” When it comes to health care, there are lies, damned lies, and CBO-bashing. Republicans are deploying all three strategies, with Mike Pence’s vile lie about the disabled – the utterly false claim that Medicaid expansion has actually hurt those most in need of […](image)

Bruni, solomgpaquin

Sun, 16 Jul 2017 12:31:37 +0000

In “Six Long Months of President Trump” Mr. Bruni says he’s right. He has been plenty busy — doing damage that won’t fade soon.  Here he is: From the beginning, people around me talked nonstop about the end. How long could Donald Trump’s presidency possibly last? Would impeachment or the 25th Amendment undo him? Before Trump, […](image)

There was one post yesterday, “The New Climate Of Treason:” The title of this post comes from a once-famous book about the senior British officials who, it turned out, spied for Stalin. I found myself thinking about that book’s title while watching the conservative movement react to news that yes, the Trump campaign was in […](image)

Bobo has decided to ponder the “Moral Vacuum in the House of Trump” and tells us that it took generations to evolve to Donald Jr.’s lack of ethics.  “Socrates” from Verona, NJ will have something to say.  Ms. Collins plaintively asks “Couldn’t We Just Trade Presidents?”  She says American citizens watching Trump’s visit to Paris must have […](image)

There was one post yesterday, “Takers and Fakers:” While we wait to see exactly what’s in the latest version of the Senate health bill, a reminder: throughout the whole campaign against Obamacare, Republicans have been lying about their intentions. Believe it or not, conservatives actually do have a more or less coherent vision of health […](image)
