The FreeRepublic Sunday Talk Show Thread

Fox News Sunday-Chris Christie Pleads-

First, why does George Will still have a job? He’s boring, pedestrian, pompous and considers himself a political elite. Will did his punditry on Fox News Sunday but he was….boring, pedestrian and pompous.

Donald Trump did not appear on Fox News Sunday but do not believe that Trump and Fox are having a feud, never mind Megan Kelly. It’s all smoke and mirrors.

Trump has a contract with Fox, or HAD one. Fox knew that to create a flap between Trump and a Fox hostess would garner attention.

This is my take on the alleged Trump/Fox rift, for what it is worth.

At any rate, NJ Governor Chris Christie is out making his plea for consideration for the Republican presidential nominee. Christie did a good job but folks, I don’t see it.

First, Christie’s from New Jersey. Right there most Americans won’t like him. Beyond that he’s fat and there’s pictures all over the place of him hugging Obama.

I just don’t think so.

ABC’s This Week-Bobby Jindal Gives It a Spin

delritepolitalkshow8.30.15jindalWith the ten year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina it’s logical that Jindal would take advantage of the timing to also plea for a Republican presidential nod. Jindal did a good job although he waffled on a question that had me thinking less of him, not more.

“What do you think President Dubya Bush should have done differently as regards his handling of Hurricane Katrina?” the host asked. Jindal did that political thing where he said everyone made mistakes during that storm but it’s the future that matters.

I say that’s NOT what Jindal should have said. Want me to type it?

President Bush did everything he could have done to help with that storm. He stayed out of the way but paid attention every step of the way. He worked with state officials and understand that it is STATE officials who control things in a hurricane, not the federal government. It was Governor Blanco who did not call for evacuation even though President Bush begged her. Mayor Nagin is now in jail for corruption so I remind America who failed during Hurricane Katrina.

Face the Nation-Democrat Guest Makes Most Shocking Revelation of the Day.

Well if it wasn’t Mitch Landrieu, current Mayor of New Orleans and didn’t the truth slip out of his mouth slicker than snot on a door knob. And he’s a Democrat!

“Hurricane Katrina was an infrastructure failure,” Landrieu said, “not a natural disaster.”

There I am cheering and hooting. Indeed Katrina was a category three when it made landfall in New Orleans. Now a category three is a big storm, no doubt, but a city with even minimal building standards should survive a storm like that. Much less a city BELOW sea level, as New Orleans is.

The levees failed, the big pumps just stopped, boom, the waters of the lake filled in the basin of New Orleans all around the 9th ward.

Millions in federal money spent to shore up those levees and first big storm, boom, it all fails. Democrats been in charge of New Orleans for decades, I remind.

delritesundaypoli8.30.15ramosthisweekNow Landrieu, brother of Senator Landrieu, has to emphasize the infrastructure failure because he seeks endless federal money. But when the infrastructure was actually failing….IT WAS ALL BUSH’S FAULT!

Had a visit from Trump’s reporter nemesis from a recent press conference, Jose Ramos. Ramos was asked did he do wrong by Donald Trump to earn Trump’s wrath. Ramos said he only wanted an answer.

Not that waiting to be called on mattered or proper manners. Ramos said that NO ONE….NO ONE HE SWEARS…can win the American presidency without the Hispanic vote.

I’m not sure I buy that.

Political Pic of the Week


CNN’s State of the Union-Donna Brazille Lies About Planned Parenthood

Democrat mouthpiece Donna Brazile got into a verbal spat with another round table pundit on this Sunday political talk show.

“94% of Planned Parenthood’s business is mammograms,” Brazile said.

A blatant lie. Planned Parenthood does NO mammograms. None. Zip, Zero, Nada.

When all else fails….lie like a rug.

My Take-

Below is a link to all my Blog posts about Hurricane Katrina. I even created a special Blog and called it “Katrina for Kaitlyn” so my granddaughter could someday read about how stupid people can be awaiting the gubmint to come save them.

And let’s not forget the very honest Brian Williams who lied about dead bodies floating by the window. Heh. Brian Williams no longer has a job, I would add.

Ray Nagin is in jail.

Hmmmmm….let’s see…..Blanco is gone, the Democrat Governor replaced by a Republican.

Hurricane Katrina…what happens when the Democrats are in charge.
