Was George W. Bush president on September 11, 2001? It’s time to settle this once and for all.

This is Genius



On Friday, Donald Trump generated substantial controversy when he asserted that George W. Bush was president at the time of the 9/11 attacks.

Jeb Bush immediately pushed back, calling Trump’s comments “pathetic” and insisting “my brother kept us safe.”

The media jumped on to the burgeoning controversy. According to The New York Times the idea that Bush was president on 9/11 and failed to stop the attack is a “break from the GOP.”

It’s true that, in the presidential election held on November 7, 2000, George W. Bush received fewer votes than Al Gore.

But according to the Associated Press, this is a photo of George W. Bush being sworn in as president on January 20, 2001.

Me Gusta: Buena Vista Social Club Orquesta at the White House

RNC chief: GOP is ‘cooked’ without White House win in 2016



The GOP will be "cooked" as a party if it doesn't win the White House in 2016, says Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus.

“We’re seeing more and more that if you don’t hold the White House, it’s very difficult to govern in this country — especially in Washington, D.C.,” Priebus said, according to The Washington Examiner.

“However, I think that we have become, unfortunately, a midterm party that doesn’t lose and presidential party that’s had a really hard time winning."

“I do think we’re cooked as a party for quite a while as a party if we don’t win in 2016,” Priebus added. "I do think it’s going to be hard to dig out of something like that.”

(On the trial of coal baron Donald Blankenship)

The tapes offer a peek into the mind of a man seemingly consumed with his own wealth and frustrated with federal regulators and company officials who pushed for more attention to safety. The prosecution hopes to offer three more recordings, but on Thursday, defense lawyers asked Judge Irene C. Berger, who is presiding over the case, to block them.

-- In one conversation, Mr. Blankenship complains that Massey’s top safety official is too concerned with “the social aspects” of her job: “You’ve got to have someone who actually understands that this game is about money.” In another, he frets over a confidential internal safety memo — central to the prosecution’s case — that warned, among other things, of poor ventilation at mines and said Massey was “plainly cheating” in sampling coal dust, a health hazard and a fire accelerant. -

If you're stupid enough to think activists are pissed at guns, you're too stupid to own one.
