McCain Trump Term of Endearment

John McCain called Trump’s supporters “crazies”. He now says it was a term of endearment. At least he didn’t call them “whacko birds“.

The Donald stepped in it when he hit back with his own term of endearment questioning McCain’s war heroism. He said McCain was a hero for getting captured. “I like people who weren’t captured.”

Now everybody hates him. Except the poll voters.

Trump Top

Trump has moved to the top of one poll for the Republican nomination. Establishment Republicans are not happy with The Donald. Peggy Noonan’s approach is that “sometimes an ill wind feels like a breath of fresh air”.

Hillary News Roundup

150708-news-roundupHillary told CNN she’s not running for president of the press. She’s running for president of the American People. Hopefully that means she won’t roundup the rest of us with ropes when she speaks.

She says people should and do trust me despite a June 2 CNN poll in which 57% said Hillary is not “honest and trustworthy”.

Greek Credit Swagger

Greece is in default. On Tuesday the government missed a payment deadline on its IMF debt. On Sunday Greeks will vote in a referendum to accept terms from the IMF for more loans. The terms include tax increases and pension cuts.

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras says he’ll step down if the referendum passes. Holman Jenkins in the WSJ says Greece has put a gun to its head saying, “Pay us ransom or the idiot gets it.”

The Greek economy is only 1.8 percent of the Eurozone. At 18 trillion in the hole, nobody has a credit swagger like Uncle Sam.

When I was in high school I was told I could be whatever I wanted to be. I had no idea.
