  • Re: Mr. Trump, I mean Mr. President, which State would You Like To Round Them Up In?

    Since I mentioned it, my Uncle has often told a much greater version of this LBJ story:

    In the 60's everybody was getting offed so protecting Johnson was no fun anyway, but whenever he was going somewhere via Marine One, they usually landed 5 or 6 helicopters on the lawn to pick him up. The idea was that the anarchists and commies wouldn't know exactly which chopper LBJ was in, so they wouldn't waste a stinger trying to nail him. (Even though the CIA handed stingers out like candy around the world, they apparently weren't all that easy to get in-country in the old days.) At any rate, the Marines land and LBJ in his usual ten gallon hat, starts heading off to one. Only it's not the one he's scheduled to be on, so my uncle comes up, touches Johnson's arm and says, "Excuse me Mr. President, but that's not your helicopter."

    LBJ jerks his arm away, wheels back around, and eyes blazing down incredulously from high atop his cowboy boots, snarls,

        It's fine as long as you add, "I say, I say, I say there son ...", at the start.

              Ever see "The Right Stuff?" The portrayal of Johnson is pretty much Foghorn Leghorn. (especially the last twenty seconds of that)

              Actually though, the last bit is the only part that is for sure a direct quote from my uncle's telling.

                mookie will miss BHO too. mookie could see being buds with him. golfing, playing basketball, hanging in general. he appears to be a really good guy. bud all the presidents in mookie's lifetime were probably good guys sans nixon. on the face of it you can't get elected if one is an arse. even dog catcher. getting that high up on the chain would highlight the decent personality.

                Trump does seem like a very likeable guy. His staff under consideration couldn't have had one friend among them in high school.

                  You know its bad when there's a coup in the US...among the president's immediate aides...a week after the election.

                  Out with Mike Rogers. WSJ says of Rogers: The departure of Mr. Rogers removes one of the most experienced national security and foreign policy hands from the transition team. He was a special agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation before being elected to Congress, and he has extensive contacts in law enforcement, intelligence, and foreign-policy circles. He also has worked closely with Democrats during his congressional tenure.

                      Rogers is out because he didn't toe the line on Trump's lies about Benghazi.

                            They don't really have to. They are, after all, entitled to their own reality. Something the Democrats have never been able to achieve.
