Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
Join Jim and Greg as they discuss the FBI searching Biden’s Delaware beach house for classified documents today and reports that the Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee are getting increasingly frustrated at the lack of information coming from the Justice Department. They also shake their heads as the HHS inspector general concludes the National Institutes of Health failed to keep close tabs on the gain of function research done in Wuhan and elsewhere that was paid for with taxpayer-funded grants. And they sigh as former Maryland Governor Larry Hogan strongly hints that he will run for president in 2024, even though there’s very little chance he will make any ripples in the campaign at all.

Happy Tuesday? Is it still Tuesday where Jim is?
Feel the Hog-mentum!!!
Jim doing his part to maintain the “Gehaghty is always wrong” label. He said that what should have happened in 2016, was for a lot of people to get out early so only one person was going against Trump in the primary. This is the same 2016 where Trump defeated Hillary and had the most successful presidency for conservative goals since Reagan. The 2016 where a Republican won the general election. Jim wants to fix the 2016 election.
Delicious! No doubt, Jim Geraghty wishes the Republicans had run somebody more simpatico, like Mitt Romney, or John McCain, or Bob Dole or, for that matter, Harold Stassen. A respectable, polite loser, in other words. (As a conservative pundit, Geraghty may see his income actually rise when Democrats are in power.)
Prior to 2016, of course, the last time the Republicans won the Presidency was in 2004; mostly because of 1) the takedown of John Kerry by the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, and 2) folks on the net who debunked the CBS/Dan Rather hoax about George W. Bush’s service during the Vietnam War.
