Peggy Noonan is tired of Trump winning

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 6/24/2019 12:01:05 PM

Peggy Noonan trotted out the latest Democrat talking point. President Donald John Trump is winning too much. She and her buddies and her employer want the public to believe there is an overload of winning. (Snip) remember on the Ed Sullivan show when we were little children? There was a guy who came and balanced plates. There would be a stick, put a plate up, get it going, get another and then he would run back and forth just trying to keep them all up. Balancing plates is part of the tone of this administration and of this president.”

Comments:

Surber takes Noonan’s nonsense and runs with it. Too funny! Read it...

Peggy is just tired. Americans are coming to realize that when the president wins they win along with him. Peggy and friends can boohoo all they want. Cry me a river.

Just as with the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers, people hate them because they hog all of the Super Bowl rings.

I really do NOT understand why the Wall Street Journal pays Peggy Noonan to waste valuable space on the editorial page every Saturday. She’s tired and trite. If an intelligent thought popped up in her brain, it would die of loneliness. She’s way past her sell-by date. I wish they’d get rid of her.

Peggy is a solid member of the RINO school that turns the other cheek to Democrat lies and insults, and then turns and savages fellow Republicans. She's quite good at larding her columns with sentimental pablum in an attempt to be profound. I read just enough each week in the WSJ to see if someone has knocked some sense into her. Once I establish that she's still clueless, I quit.

Do you remember that old stage act where this guy came out with the dog he kept coaxing to do tricks, and the dog wouldn’t do anything? One of the tricks was to hold a hoop close to the floor for the dog to jump through. The dog just sat there and did nothing. The guy said, “A little higher.“ The audience laughed uproariously. Well, the Democrats are that guy and the dog is in their agenda. Democrats keep trying to sell this dog and its tricks (liberalism) and the audience (we the people) keeps laughing.

I ISED to read Peggy Noonan in the Wall Street Journal every week. I didn't always agree with he---sometines did, but found her interesting and her points often salient. No more. I stopped just about the time Trump took the Presidency: her arguments have been so biased and silly that she isn't worth my time. For the first time in years, however, I did read last Saturday's column..........nothing will change this woman's mind. Even relatives, who she obviously feels superior to. She is so caught up in Trump's bafoonery that she can't see the forrest for the trees.

So utterly predictable. The Dims and their eager enablers (= NeverTrump) will increasingly be forced to to denounce The Good, whether it be: a strong economy, energy independence, security overseas, the rule of law, an effective military, border enforcement, or even a positive outlook on the future - because President Trump has exposed them as representing and rooting for: The Bad. Peggy used to be very smart, it must be something about the crease in Lightbringer's trousers that has her brain all fogged up now.

Peggy Noonan peaked long ago and for a very brief time. This President is just hitting his stride and will go down in history as one of the greatest Presidents warts and all. If the media had concentrated their jaundiced eyes on former Presidents like they have this one, I bet that Donald J. Trump would come out looking like a choir boy compared to some of them. The media made it personal and have stayed on attack mode. It is astounding what he has accomplished through hard work and determination. Noonan beclowns herself when she writes these condescending rants. Grow up, Peggy. The man is accomplishing great things for the American people. Your pearl clutching diatribes are wearisome.

Never-Trumper Peggy Noonon's political philosophy comes down to being sick of winning, and Democrat Nancy Pelosi's political philosophy - regarding illegal immigration and I would suggest a score of other weighty problems our country face, comes down to "What's the point?" I think the Never-Trumpers and the Democrat political philosophies come down to "The rich get rich and the poor get poorer."

Back in the 80's Peggy wrote a couple of excellent speeches for President Reagan and then helped get Bill Clinton elected with her speech for George H W Bush with her "Read my lips speech, no new taxes." Now she's an uppity elitist from Manhattan who hangs with the low-brows on NBC and writes for the WSJ. Peggy Noonan is not a deplorable or one of the forgotten men and women of this country and basically has no insight into anything related to President Trump.

Peggy Noonan is one of those people who live in the political past when the Democrats were somewhat civil. She never understood that, since Reagan, the dems have essentially declared war on Republicans and conservatives. Thus, she pines for the "Tip O'Neill days" when Renaldus Magnus could sit down in good ole boy sessions and cut deals with the dems. But the reality is that the dems want to literally DESTROY any opposition to their quest for political power, and nothing is taboo to them in pursuit of this goal. Given Peggy's obvious civility and moral background, one would think that she would get the fact that the dems are more evil than Donald Trump could ever imagine being. She reminds me of those misguided individuals (i.e., scientists and preachers) common to the fifties' Sci Fi movies, who always pronounced all we needed to do was offer a welcoming hand to the alien invaders, only to be vaporized by their beam weapons.

And I am tired of Peggy Noonan. Actually tired of her long ago. For me the last straw came during Ronald Reagan's funeral, which she besmirched by belittling her fellow workers in the Reagan speechwriters stable. You would think that at funerals for great men, former staffers would restrain themselves from making vicious personal comments in public. Not our Peggy!

Amen. I agree with every word. I acknowledge that the Donald is a churner; that's his MO. At the same time he's a 4-star winner. What Peggy and her ilk have forgotten is the number of things which Obama and company nearly or completely destroyed. Our POTUS has to balance a lot of dishes because Obama broke so many. Sorry about the mixed metaphor. Try this: DJT is cleaning the Augean stables. Do you want to admire the work and say good bye to the stench or wring your hands, say that you'd rather be on the beach at Montecito and let the stench continue and destroy us all? We are at war. Repeat: we are at war. Not just with the Russians, Chinese, Iranians, et al. but with the Washington establishment that doesn't care about the country, only about its self-aggrandizement and Chardonnay pours. DJT doesn't drink. He cleans house. Thank God.

President Trump struck a patriotic, nonpartisan and unifying note during his address at Fourth of July celebrations in Washington, D.C., as the massive crowd of attendees avoided clashes despite provocations from protesters. The event defied the critics who said the celebration on Thursday would be a partisan political spectacle that would not even attract a significant crowd. (Snip) Yet a massive crowd gathered on the Lincoln Memorial despite the rain, with Trump later tweeting an aerial photo showing an audience that filled both sides of the memorial’s Reflecting Pool and stretched to the Washington Monument.

The article asked the question: “Will Hunter Biden Jeopardize His Father’s Campaign?” The answer is fairly obvious: No. (Snip)Deep within the article lies a section about Hunter’s dealings with Chinese energy tycoon Ye Jianming. As the New Yorker’s Adam Entous wrote, “a large diamond” was referenced in one of Kathleen Biden’s (Hunter’s ex-wife) motions during their divorce.

Posted by earlybird 7/4/2019 8:55:30 AM Post Reply
Protesting Nike used to be a go-to event for various far-left groups in America. A massive company using slave-labor conditions to produce low-cost products that are then resold at 1000% mark-ups was representative of what was, in their minds, so wrong with globalized capitalism. Then, suddenly, all that protest vanished. Why? The answer is simple. Nike’s marketing machine turned its attention to controversial anti-police, anti-America, former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The company paid Kaepernick millions to divert attention away from its deplorable overseas operations and instead convince consumers how horrible American was—except for those who wore Nike products apparently.
