´Piece of Garbage´: Michael Dukakis
Rips Tax Law, Blasts Wall Proposal

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/20/2018 1:53:19 PM

1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis ripped President Trump´s new tax law and offered optimism for Democrats ahead of the midterm elections. Dukakis, a former governor of the Bay State during the so-called economic "Massachusetts Miracle," said Republicans have lost their way when it comes to supporting fiscal responsibility. He questioned why they would champion a tax plan that may have costly ramifications for the national deficit. (Snip) "We just passed a tax bill, which I think is a piece of garbage," Dukakis, who lost his presidential bid to then-Vice President George Bush, said. "Look at these companies, though, that are

Comments:
Talk about a piece of garbage! I have no idea why in the world Neil would waste any valuable time with that worthless, pathetic, useless LOSER! I can´t think of anything positive he has ever done. Whenever I hear his name I still can see that idiot in the Army tank.Link below. He perfectly exemplifies the belligerance, incompetence and all that is wrong with the Democrats.

He was useless as a Governor, he was useless as a presidential candidate, and having heard and watched his interview with Neil Cavuto, I think it is safe to say that nothing has changed and he´s still useless.

I’m confused - is this the same National Deficit that the Democrats paid no attention to for eight years. I’m pretty sure most of that wasn’t Bush’s fault.

I note by the background behind Dukakis that he´s not speaking from Boston. Looks like he´s relocated to Phoenix, since he ruined Massachusetts.

Hey, Mikey - get a clue. The so-callede "Massachusetts Miracle" was a Republican phenomenon. You just happened to be there to steal credit for it.

I watched the interviews and poor Mike and Neil were asleep at the switch! The Oct before the election of 2000. The Cole was attacked, and from the time of the attack the investigation was flawed, the FBI were all but shut down by Yemen and the US Ambassador, this was followed by a contentious election, and our eyes where off the ball, within 11 months we were we had “911” which shocked the US system!

Clinton let, the Cole happen, North Korea march to nuclear weapons and the Graddady of them all Bin Laden continued his plot to attack America!

Clinton was handed a perfect hand, Cold War over, Saddam Hussein kick out of Kuwait, Hussein in a controlled environment. And Clintion on the strength balance the Republican led budget, until the as far as
the eye can see surpluses vanished because Clinton did nothing to contain Bin Laden even with sufficient warning


We are where we are today because of Clintion and his Security failure and letting Raines of Fannie Mae run the real estate fiinancing lier loans , no doc loans blow us up in 2008! Bush fought hard to contain the agency disregard for loan quality and the charge of Barney Fran and Sen Dodd! They planted the seeds of moral and financial destruction of the USA
Mike you can dream on but you are lying to yourself
Shame on Neal and his producers for not offering a challenge

PS. Cavuto leans left. Noticed that long ago - that an his incessant need to interrupt so that he can listen to his own voice. Pass.

Choosing a loser like Dukakis for his big opening show reveals a lot about Neil.

H.W. Bush´s 1988 Dukakis tank commercial was fiendishly effective. I remember laughing seeing the governor in that Snoopy hat, hearing the wheels inside the tread squeaking, and thinking to myself: This weak lefty will never be commander in chief. In a contemporaneous skit SNL had a Dukakis look alike saying, more or less, "I´m going to get beaten really badly. I´m going to get creamed." Squeak squeak squeak.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LyYD166ync

My then 8-year-old godson, after hearing my nickname for Dukakis, "Du-tax-us," repeated it to his horrified grammar school teacher and his classmates, most of whom were Greek-Americans, Democrats, and liberals. Hearing that really shook ´em up.

I didn´t want a kakistocracy, or government by the worst people.

The other killer moment of that campaign was at the presidential debate when Bernard Shaw asked liberal, anti-death penalty Dukakis, "Governor, if your wife Kitty Dukakis were raped and murdered, would you favor an irrevocable death penalty for the killer?"

Showing no emotion, passion, or even love for his wife, Mikey replied coldly, "No, I wouldn´t, Bernard. And I think you know that I´ve opposed the death penalty during all of my life."

Debate over. Campaign over.

A Republican running for the U.S. House of Representatives in Oklahoma said he would "use" his Second Amendment if anyone treated his daughter the way President Trump treats women. Danny Stockstill, a Republican running for the vacant seat in Oklahoma’s 1st Congressional District, admitted that, while he approves of Trump’s job in office, he doesn’t want him to be a role model for his children. “So why are we so afraid to say, ‘There’s no way I want my son to act like [Trump]?´" Stockstill said during a Tuesday night forum, according to the Tulsa World. “If my daughter ever

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., and he was finally fired just after he was arrested trying to fly to Pakistan last summer. Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, were charged last summer with bank fraud. They now appear poised to strike a plea deal with the Department of Justice. (Snip) Sources tell me that the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force has been looking into this matter since well before Awan and his crew of Pakistani

Melinda Gates has decided to enter the venture capital world by sending her money to people based at least partly on their sex and skin color, she said in a recent Fortune interview. “It’s been incredibly disappointing to watch how few women-led businesses are getting funded,” Gates said. “Ultimately, if we want more innovation and better products, we’ve got to put more money behind women and minorities. That wasn’t happening, so I decided to step in and see what I could do to help a little bit.” Here are other portions of her interview where Gates specifically says some criteria

The rhetorical attacks on incoming National Security Council Executive Secretary Fred Fleitz (the author’s former colleague) have been shrill and ineffective. Conservatives have rallied to Fleitz’ defense, bolstered in part by Fleitz’s long history of work as a Central Intelligence Agency analyst, State Department official, and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence staffer, along with his solid reputation working on Iran and nonproliferation-related issues. According to Trump administration insiders, the White House blames Obama allies and Iran deal advocates for ginning up the non-controversy, and there’s no indication of a willingness to surrender the scalp of a long-time national security

Peter Strzok, who was pulled off Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s investigative team last year, played a more central role than previously known in both the Russia and Hillary Clinton email probes, a lawmaker familiar with the matter told Fox News Tuesday. The lawmaker´s assessment of Strzok´s role in both investigations was based on the most recent records and testimony, including a closed-door interview with FBI espionage chief Bill Priestap. Priestap was interviewed Tuesday as part of an ongoing joint investigation by the House Judiciary and Oversight committees. Priestap was Strzok´s supervisor and oversaw both the Russia and Clinton investigations.

"Under the terms of such a grant of use immunity, no testimony or other information provided by Mr. McCabe could be used against him in a criminal case," wrote Michael Bromwich, a lawyer for McCabe, to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, who has requested McCabe testify

The Department of Justice and the FBI are deliberately attempting to slow roll and redact significant portions of DOJ Inspector General, Michael Horowitz’s report on the bureau’s handling of the Hillary Clinton investigation, according to numerous congressional officials and investigators. The 400-page report, which was completed several weeks ago and addresses Clinton’s use of her private server for government business, is currently being reviewed by the DOJ and FBI. According to sources, individuals mentioned in the reports are also allowed to review the document. It is expected to be “long and thorough” and will criticize the handling of the investigation by

Trump held the event in place of the Eagles Super Bowl celebration, which was hastily canceled after only a handful of Eagles players decided to attend.

A man wanted on an attempted murder charge was arrested Tuesday morning outside the White House, where he was working as a contractor and had a White House pass, law enforcement officials said. Officers arrested 29-year-old Martese Maurice Edwards of Suitland, Maryland, when he reported for work, according to a Secret Service statement. Two federal law enforcement agencies identified Edwards. Edwards was taken to a Metropolitan Police Department station for processing, the statement said. Edwards was "the subject of a warrant issued out of Prince Georges County, MD," the statement said. A federal official said the warrant was for attempted first-degree murder. The

Ohio Gov. John Kasich on Sunday said the GOP needs to find a unifying message to tamp down the “chaotic environment” that seems to dominate political discourse today, citing a narrow victory for Republican Troy Balderson in a special congressional election that should have been a slam dunk for his party. Mr. Balderson appears to have squeaked out a win in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District, where Republicans previously won with “overwhelming numbers,” as the governor put it. That’s raising fears among Republicans about their prospects in swing districts this November. “What you had is a, I think, a message from

"The dirty war on the free press must end." That´s the idea behind an unusual editorial-writing initiative that has enlisted scores of newspapers across America. The Boston Globe has been contacting newspaper editorial boards and proposing a "coordinated response" to President Trump´s escalating "enemy of the people" rhetoric. "We propose to publish an editorial on August 16 on the dangers of the administration´s assault on the press and ask others to commit to publishing their own editorials on the same date," The Globe said in its pitch to fellow papers. The effort began just a few days ago.

Tennessee has carried out its first execution in nearly a decade using a controversial cocktail of drugs including a lethal ingredient described by the Supreme Court as "chemically burning at the stake". Billy Ray Irick, an inmate convicted of the 1985 rape and murder of seven-year-old Paula Dyer, received a three-drug injection on Thursday night after the US Supreme Court denied a final request to stay his execution. The lethal injection consisted of midazolam, used as sedative during an execution, a muscle-relaxer called vecuronium bromide, and compounded potassium chloride, the agent that stops the heart.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said Sunday that it´s in President Trump´s best interest to let special counsel Robert Mueller complete his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Rubio, appearing on "Fox News Sunday," echoed a number of his Republican colleagues in defending the special counsel in the face of Trump´s call last week for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end the Mueller investigation. Rubio said the "best thing that can happen" for Trump and the country is for the investigation to "run the course and for all the truth to come out."

In an op-ed for the Boston Globe, Dani Rodrik, professor of international political economy at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, calls for what is effectively an academic blacklisting of members of the Trump administration, who, Rodrik contends, should be prohibited from receiving "even a semblance of honor or recognition" from the gatekeepers of higher learning. "Universities should uphold both free inquiry and the values of liberal democracy," writes Rodrik. "The first calls for unhindered exchange and interaction with Trumpist views. The second requires that the engagement be carefully calibrated, with not even a semblance of honor or recognition bestowed

A Gallup poll released Monday finds that – for the first time in the poll company’s data collection over the past decade – Democrats view socialism more positively than capitalism. The current survey demonstrates only 47 percent of Democrats view capitalism positively, a drop from 56 percent in 2016. Democrats’ view of socialism, however, has remained positive since 2010, with 57 percent having a positive perspective. Meanwhile, Republicans have remained positive about capitalism, with 71 percent taking that perspective and only 16 percent stating they have a positive view of socialism. The poll finds younger Americans have shown the greatest

I hate to break it to parents who just sent their college-admission-minded progeny to the Tibetan Plateau to churn yak butter, but the smartest summer I ever spent was in secretarial school. This was back when I was 17, and it wasn’t grist for an essay about a transformative communion with people outside my clique. I wasn’t ripping the blinders from my eyes. I was typing — hour upon hour, day after day, with my shoulders back and my spine straight and my hands just so. My mother had decided that she could no longer bear the tortured stutter of my peck-peck-pecking

Last year, when the kneeling controversy erupted like a California wildfire and the president launched a series of attacks on the NFL and Colin Kaepernick, I argued that cooler heads should prevail and a middle ground could be reached by both sides. Like the recovering alcoholic I am, I must have been in denial, hoping like a chronic gambler that Roger Goodell would do the right thing, or even just do his job. Obviously, I was wrong, because here we are again, my friends: another year, another round of protests. And all because the NFL and Roger Goodell have been

Omarosa Manigault Newman made headlines on Monday morning following her contentious Today show interview, but it was her bright yellow dress that baffled style critics and left them wondering what she was thinking. The 44-year-old former assistant to the president looked ready for a cocktail reception in a $550 one-shoulder lace dress featuring a sweetheart neckline and scalloped hem when she sat down with Savannah Guthrie in Studio 1A. Omarosa was promoting her tell-all White House memoir, ´Unhinged,´ but her Karen Millen outfit choice prompted swift backlash from those who felt it was ´incredibly inappropriate´ for the morning show and
