Opinion: Republicans: Such kidders!
We were semi-amused by a remarks last week that indicated Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) shouldn’t feel overly troubled by the FBI having her computer server, because among the fervent Democrats nationally, she has “extreme enthusiasm” on her side from 33 percent. Oh, and 58 percent of Republican respondents indicated that the GOP would have a better shot at the White House were Donald Trump (R-Billions) not a candidate. Keep in mind, we wrote “Republicans,” the party of the spineless.

Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) is campaigning for the presidency on a number of points, including last week’s declaration that he will repeal ObamaCare (all of it), ensuring affordable and accessible health insurance for everyone; making health care more efficient, effective and accountable by empowering the states; increasing quality and choice through innovation; and providing financial stability for families and taxpayers. Of course, he will. There is zero percent chance of that happening with the liberal-dominated GOP. They fritter away such opportunity at every turn. Broken record.

One of us traveled to and from coastal Virginia in the last week, and, as one might do when venturing forth from the homestead, there were comparisons made and noted. First of all, the folks encountered in Virginia were as genial as they come. That, unfortunately, was contrasted by a number of rude and inwardly focused locals at LaGuardia International Airport in New York City; they’d as soon run you down with too-large-for-carryon luggage as answer an inquiry. Reminds us of the old line: “Excuse me, sir, would you please tell me the time, or should I just go pound sand?” Never did the traveling party feel happier to walk through the nation’s No. 1 airport, Indianapolis International, on the way to the car for the ride home.
