The Left is having a party over this:

I have felt that way about the GOP for 10 years if not longer.
Problem is we don't have 4 to 8 years to "grit our teeth" and wait for 2020 or 2024 as he reasons.

Strangely, on the issues where I disagree with George Will, he tends to agree more with Trump.

We've been in general election mode for nearly two months.  What kind of conservative party nominee, campaign or election does Trump hope to win that doesn't include having George Will at least lukewarm on your side?  Good grief.

The idea that Sanders supporters are going Trump or Republican in large numbers to cover for conservative votes lost is a joke. 

The question is presented for conservatives, are you better off seeing your country get 65% more screwed up by a Republican (in name only) or 80% more screwed up by a Democrat?

A Trump failure as President, especially if he consolidates Republican support to win which he must, will not be followed by a political correction to the right.  A Trump failure as a candidate only leaves his supporters even more bitter toward conservatives who didn't back him, never to join them again.  A Hillary victory and failure will not leave us time to fix the country in our lifetimes no matter what follows.

Screwed and screwed are our two choices.  Choose wisely (gallows sarcasm).

A funny quote I came across trying to read the market reaction to Brexit:

"Many companies in the FTSE 100 (the Dow of the UK) dig stuff up in Africa, price it in dollars and sell it in China" [and then take the global market value of that to tell us how the economy is doing in Britain in this case].

To me it reinforces my point that the nominal dollar value index of giant, crony, entrenched companies, Dow, S&P, etc., after QE-10, ZIRP, NIRP, CRAp, doesn't tell us squat about how the economy is doing.

Brave. I hope he has an armed protection detail.

Fair points all.  I simply found it interesting the consciousness of Ted reached her to conclusions similar to those of Glenn Beck.

My prediction, John Kasich, is failing because he still hates Trump and because his own star really fizzled after his only win in Ohio.  He really won Ohio as the anti-Trump, not a pitch he can use as VP pick.

This story goes over the names:

The only name they add of note to what has already been dissected is Mike Pence who I like.  Maybe he can help Trump carry Indiana and not lose in 50 states.

Friends of mine, mostly sane, say they will vote Hillary to stop Trump.  Friends of mine on the left are receiving cell calls by the hour from Hillary and Hillary,PAC and GOTV groups while Trump is floundering.  Washington Post has him down now by double digits.  Brexit vote should have helped him immensely.  Orlando shooting should have sealed the deal.  He was vacationing when he should have been pouncing.  Master of the media message??  Where are you?

Lesson to my side who already lost, you can't wait for every four years to put out a message, then fall off-message and hope to win.  Do Olympic champions take the four years off before the main event?

The Guardian =  The Left.  More positive stories at the Telegraph:
Wimbledon gearing up, soccer news, Kate Middleton's dresses, life goes on.

The vote is to bring back sovereignty, to decide these issues as a nation, not solve all problems automatically.  It is still a divided nation. 

This was their independence day, only half of them including all of the elites didn't want it.

Panic in the UK, OMG, we don't have rule from afar anymore.  How will we possibly survive?

I hate to comment on markets because they will move a different direction as soon as I say anything, but it looks to me like the markets have stabilized in a day and that the German, French and Euro markets dropped further than the British market.

EU wanted free trade with Britain in the EU, why wouldn't they want that now?  Or is all the panic and doom-saying intentional? 

Why hasn't our own Bozo in Chief signed a free trade agreement with Britain yet?  Obama promised retaliation and he delivers.  Where was all that integrity on healthcare and selling the Iran deal?

Breitbart and "Conservative Tribune"??

Unless I'm missing something here, this is another sickening commentary on our media, you have to read right wing sites to get news, not just opinion.

In a Google News search for stories about Hillary's email issues, the first, non-right wing story to come up is a USA Today opinion calling Hillary's email situation a "pseudo-scandal", written by a Clinton surrogate.

NOTHING about the story I learned here on the forum via links in Crafty's posts.
