CWAA: Can We All Agree – 1/9/16 edition

January 9, 2016

Can we all agree that the closer we get to actual voting the crazier the race for President gets?

For example:

Can we all agree that the ‘progressive’ media is just a bit too giddy that Ted Cruz has the same ‘birther’ problem that has haunted President Obama for 8 years?

Can we all agree that there has been way too much talk about Marco Rubio’s boots?

Can we all agree that despite what The Donald says, the amount of voter fraud in this country is minuscule?

Bill Clinton returns to the campaign trail

Bill Clinton returns to the campaign trail

Can we all agree that it is great to see former President Clinton back on the campaign trail explaining what’s really going on?

Can we all agree that Donald Trump’s attempts to attack Clinton over his past indiscretions will have no impact?

Can we all agree that the blizzard of GOP attack ads is hurting all the mainstream candidates?

But, enough politics:

Can we all agree that the self-styled militia that has taken over the small wildlife preserve in Oregon has virtually no support anywhere?

Can we all agree that the most vehement opponents are birders who point out the importance of the refuge to wild bird migration? If anyone has the patience to outlast the militia it’s birders.

Can we all agree that Mr. Obama has done a masterful job putting the NRA on the defensive over a relatively small change in gun registration regulations?

Can we all agree the last thing we needed in the Mideast was a increase in tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia?

Can we all agree that the President’s decision to roundup and deport hundreds of Central American women and children is a tragic betrayal of  one of the founding principles of this country? We can all agree that Donald Trump bears some of the responsibility.

Can we all agree that the addition of another 270,000 jobs signals continued strength in the economy despite what you might have heard from the GOP?

Can we all agree that the government’s new dietary guidelines may not be perfect, but are a step in the right direction?

Can we all agree that it’s probably just a matter of time before Mexican drug kingpin “El Chapo” is on the loose again unless he gets extradited to the United States?

Can we all agree that Alabama Judge Roy Moore just defies all logic is disputing the Supreme Court’s decision on gay marriage?

Can we all agree we are all better off now that Congress has wasted another few days repealing the Affordable Care Act and defunding Planned Parenthood? The bill was, of course, vetoed immediately.

Can we all agree that the Florida professor who claims the shooting at Sandy Hook elementary school and other violent acts were staged events, needs more punishment that just being fired?

Can we all agree that the leader of North Korea is creating a major headache, basically because he’s crazy?

Can we all agree, speaking of crazy, that the mayor of Cologne, Germany deserves a special  place in the Crazies Hall of Fame for his advice to women on how to avoid sexual assaults?

and finally:

Can we all agree that when a major metropolitan newspaper has to send its reporting staff out to deliver newspapers it has a real self-inflicted and inexcusable problem?
