Don’t see a helluvalot of difference between the ‘politicians’ running..
Most obviously are politicians and I am at the point where I do not trust anyone of them…
Cruz of all the politicians shows some promise..
Now there are 3 ‘non-politicians’ in the group…
Trump and Fiorina have a bit of business experience, maybe that is what we need…
Politicians have not shown any aptitude for handling our tax dollars.
Carson? A neurosurgeon…Not sure how that would work..
So maybe, just maybe is time for a non political person to have a shot..
I’m rambling now…
But damn pissed off at pretty much everything that comes out of Washington DC these days…
They can all take a long walk off a short plank for all I care!!

The Civil War was not fought over the issue of slavery, it was fought over the same issue as the American Revolution. The American people won their freedom as a result of the American Revolution, but lost it as a result of the Civil War.
A cranky Lawrence O’Donnell on Monday lashed out at the "terrible" Antonin Scalia, deriding the Supreme Court justice for his "wacky," bad writing. O’Donnell wondered if the conservative is "now the Donald Trump of the Supreme Court?" O’Donnell hosted a panel discussion on Scalia’s dissents over ObamaCare and gay marriage. The liberal host complained, "…These are just terrible bits that he is sticking into these opinions and terrible thinker. And they are combined, you know, in that wacky reference he made the other day."
Appearing on Tuesday’s New Day, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin renewed his lambasting of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, as he asserted that Scalia’s dissent on the Court’s gay marriage ruling was "unprecedented in its vitriol." The CNN analyst saw the conservative justice showing "abuse and contempt" for his fellow justices. Toobin also repeated his characterization of Justice Scalia as the "’get off my lawn’ justice."
On Monday, Fusion senior editor Felix Salmon echoed New York Times writer Mark Oppenheimer’s call for the end of the tax exemption of religious institutions, but took it one step further: he called for the specific targeting of churches that "remain steadfastly bigoted on the subject" of same-sex "marriage." Salmon contended on Fusion.net that "if your organization does not support the right of gay men and women to marry, then the government should be very clear that you’re in the wrong. And it should certainly not bend over backwards to give you the privilege of tax exemption."
MSNBC host Chris Hayes devoted a segment during Monday’s All In to commenting on the financial crisis in Greece and chose not to attack the left-wing government or any of the previous governments for their spending habits, but rather laid blame at the feet of “morally monstrous” European banks and others in the Eurozone for grinding “Greece into misery” in “a sadistic exercise in sheer will to power.”
On Tuesday, CNN’s Jim Acosta asked President Obama about "what some people are calling ‘your best week ever.’" Acosta played up that "you had two Supreme Court decisions supportive of the Affordable Care Act and of gay rights. You also delivered a speech down in Charleston that was pretty warmly received." The correspondent then underlined that ‘it seems that you’ve built up some political capital for the remaining months of your presidency." He asked, "I’m curious, how you want to use it? What hard things do you want to tackle at this point?"
ABC’s Good Morning America on Tuesday used Chris Christie’s presidential announcement as an opportunity to remind viewers just how unpopular the Republican looks. Yet, co-anchor George Stephanopoulos and guest Matt Dowd ignored the fact that Christie was ultimately cleared for Bridgegate, the main reason for his faltering polling. CBS and NBC mentioned the scandal, but not the clearing of the governor.
Introducing a segment on Tuesday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer proclaimed: “The tragic mass shooting in Charleston has renewed questions about gun control and the gun culture in this country.” He then led into a report by left-wing MSNBC correspondent Ronan Farrow, who the network “sent out to meet the new face of gun ownership.”
