    My fist pumping at Luke Thompson’s anti-Rubio rant was inappropriate for my cubicle, but it happened

    Very nice podcast. Missed on the Trump legal discussion was what I call the “Kracken” option. In this, Trump declassifies lots of things that are embarrassing to Comey, Mueller, Clapper, Clinton, … Those hacks are a target rich environment. Release the Kracken and spill the info on HSBC, Uranium One, Clinton Global Foundation, Podesta Group, … There is nothing the Swamp fears more than sunlight.

    Wow why all the hate for Rubio? They are all politicians and Rubio is, surely, a better man than most of them. He at least has a good grasp of geo politics and the ability to communicate, which is more than can be said for many Republicans. I don’t understand attacking our own unless it is a disgusting man like Trump.

    Mistake! You said that Rubio did not win a state. Wrong! Rubio won Minnesota on March 1, 2016. 

    Marco also won the Puerto Rico primary with 70% of the vote on March 6, 2016. As noted in the pod-cast, Rubio also won the District of Columbia on March 12, 2016.

    It is really hard to take seriously any complaints that Luke Thompson has about the current state of our political landscape, since it is axiomatic that a major reason we are stuck with the president we have is that Jeb Bush, a very fine man (what is not to like at all about this interview) who would have been a great president at any other time and an excellent candidate at any other time, chose to run in 2016 in an utterly quixotic, egocentric, and hopeless campaign that any sane observer knew had no chance to even be competitive in 2016. 

    Why? Because of the unfair reactions and blame associated with GWB’s administration. There was no way that anyone named or associated with Bush (or, also unfairly after 2012, Romney) would win any kind of Republican primary anywhere. 

    Mike Murphy screwed us all- because he surely understood this since I did (and I said so on a lot of Ricochet posts before we were eternally tarred by the Trump pitch brush).
