I'm shocked, shocked, that politicians didn't speak openly about issues that were not self-serving. How could America have elected anyone who wouldn't speak completely openly?
The only talent Priebus has is covering his a$$. And he'ls looking weaker and weaker at that. Time for BIG change.
He's just another opportunist politician. His problem is that the wind is blowing in multiple directions and he wants a push from every gust.
TH is missing the whole story. Try this one from the local paper quoting the CFO: http://www.elkharttruth.com/article/20131015/NEWS01/710159928. Their restaurant had no business for a long time due to road construction. In the last two years, they have gotten lousy Yelp review complaining of poor service. (http://www.yelp.com/biz/bonnie-doon-ice-cream-corp-mishawaka). And they have been closing locations for years. Obamacare played a significant role. But, it was already a company in trouble. It was heading down. Obamacare was just the last straw. I don't not like what Obamacare is doing to my insurance rates. But, this article reads to me like spin. And I like that even less.
What's the news in this, that Krauthammer just figured out what everybody else already knew?
You guys are missing the whole story. Try this one from the local paper quoting the CFO (who should know better than TH): http://www.elkharttruth.com/article/20131015/NEWS01/710159928. Their restaurant had no business for a long time due to road construction. The get mediocre Yelp reviews with the most recent ones complaining about declining service (http://www.yelp.com/biz/bonnie-doon-ice-cream-corp-mishawaka). And they have been closing locations for years. Obamacare played a role, a big one. But, it was already a company in trouble. You guys just took the bait. I may not like what Obamacare is doing to my insurance rates. But, I'm not going to let any media -- mainstream or not -- make me a sucker.
Calmon: You make sense to me. It's sad they are closing (although, I read elsewhere that their ice cream distributorship and some of the restaurants will reopen). But, with the mandate over a year away, I don't see how Obamacare is the reason. I wish Town Hall would leave out spin articles like this. It hurts our credibility.
There's something dicey here. They are closing 1.2 years before the employer mandate kicks in? No matter what you think about Obamacare, you have to question whether that's the real reason these guys are closing. Is there some special component of it that is going into play separate from the employer mandate? If not, this sounds like spin to me, both political and a business having other problems.
The headline blames Reid. The article blames Reid for his not blocking things in 2010. This is like blaming someone who left their door unlocked for getting robbed. Sure, they should have locked the door. But, someone else chose to walk in the door and take stuff. The MSM isn't even in the article. Saying it's about the MSM is reading too much into the article. No, I'm sad to say that this is spin and it makes us look bad when we should be making our case clearly and strongly.
Huh? Because Harry Reid didn't force through a debt limit increase in 2010 it's his fault that we're in this crisis now? Sorry. That logic is a little dicey. Let's stand up and take pride in what happened. Republicans (or many of them) stood up for something we believe in. We got multiple issues back in front of the American people. Why write an article hiding behind what Harry Reid didn't do three years ago? That's plain wimpy.
This is what Lonegan is running on, Twitter exchanges, girlfriends, and semantics? It's not exactly news that crime is a problem in Newark. Can't we do better?
