Regarding Sec. of State, I guess we'll all know soon enough. 

Romney was proven right on some things as compared with Obama.  I think his appointment would be a good thing, but tough for Pat-types to swallow after all the negativity both ways.

Rand Paul is to the left or non-interventionist side of Obama, Hillary and Trump on foreign policy.  Extremist in his passivity, IMHO.  Great on some domestic issues but that is another matter. 

Bolton is to the right or hawk side of Trump.  Would send a different signal, but not a very compatible voice nor a fight worth taking up with the senate unless Trump was endorsing Bolton's foreign policy and he isn't.

Petreus turned a war around, single-handedly in terms of leadership.  How that translates into diplomacy I don't know.  He admitted his mistake (eventually) when caught, plead guilty, paid the price.  I forgive him, but also don't know if that is worth the price of a fight for confirmation.

Sen. Corker I believe to be the wrong choice.

Giuliani, I am skeptical.  Would support him if nominated.

Newt Gingrich should be press secretary.

Where does that leave us, Trump's choice.  Maybe I pull for Romney IF they both do it for the right reasons, not to undermine each other.

Sec of State is on the short list in succession to be President.  (Ask Al Haig about that!)  It should be someone well respected, prominent and already vetted.  It also needs to be someone with real organizational skills.  That department needs to be turned upside down for a thorough cleaning and rebuilding.

"He will finally get the recovery he has been predicting the last years. It must be very exciting for him!"

And we will be very glad the apocalypse we have been predicting the last 8 years has not come to be.  evil

I am glad that Rand Paul is back in the Senate.  His perspective is an important part of our overall mix, but , , , I would be quite happy with Petraeus as Sec. State.


FP is very much a Democrat publication, and the whining of the cookie pushers at Foggy Bottom in the article impresses me not a bit.

With my bias toward supply side policies, I also think the economy will boom - once good policies are fully enacted.

If there is certainty or at least consensus that much better policies are imminent, the market will anticipate that, in the reverse way that investors pulled back decisively when Pelosi-Reid-Obama-Clinton took control of Washington in 2007-2008.

The Reagan boom was preceded by the Volcker tightening that should have happened simultaneous with the tax rate cut stimulus.  A horrible recession filled the interim.

On Dec 13-14 the Fed will raise rates again, though only by 1/4 point and to levels that are still far too low.  That hike alone won't tank investment or the economy but a delay or roadblock in the 52-48 Senate of the tax and regulatory reforms we were promised perhaps will.

Any thoughts from others as to whether or not this market can continue to go up and up ahead of real growth even if we start doing things right?

Disclosure:  My money is not in the stock market.  My money was lost in a previous stock market.  Maybe it is still there, but it isn't mine anymore!

Wesbury has been more accurate than us - on the up markets.  He generally misses the crashes and corrections.

"NFL is corrupt for marketing its product like big tobacco.  Football is now labelled an addiction.

Football is hazardous to body and brain?  Who knew or would have guessed that a 200 to 300 pound person crashing into you at full speed knocking you off your feet and smashing you to the gournd could cause serious injury?"



While the left works to ban it, they continue to subsidize it, building stadiums for billionaire owners, millionaire players and mostly rich people who buy tickets, hence the thread name cognitive dissonance!


"If someone likes to play tennis and watch that all the time why would that not be called an addiction?"

Actually they do, but at least we don't subsidize it.  Or treat it or cure it.  Tennis addiction causes you to live longer, costing the country billions...

[Tennis trivia for ccp, what do we call a 90 mile an hour fastball in tennis?  A soft second serve.  )
