No, he doesn't get it. Also in that speech, he said, "Celebrate your heritage. Embrace your blackness!" WTF? So any of the non blacks in that graduating class just got shut out and totally disrespected by the prez. His comment meant that only blacks matter in this world. He's really letting his true colors show in this last bit of time before his second unnecessary and harmful term is over. He's a racist of epic proportions. .

I won’t vote for Trump – he is not a conservative – I don’t know what the hell he is…he supports democrats…and himself…

CNN has gotten 24&7 non stop coverage on Donald trump. I am in the Baja and only get CNN on Dish network. I suppose they canvased their listeners…, Ted Cruz is only mentioned sporadically, and usually in a negative way. They give full air time to Trump’s “press conferences” and then spend hours talking about it …etc.
it's the same on all networks.
Trump made himself "the news" from the git-go by saying absolutely outrageous things.
once the networks figured out he was a ratings juggernaut- they were hooked.
Trump gets them viewers- which translates to $$.
Mr. infection is correct Mr. artist. As I mentioned to someone else there is only one dem god right now...Obama.
This time around they made a calculation that survival is better. They HATE themselves. But they love being able to afford something more than Ramen Noodles for lunch for a change.
Normally the love would extend only through the primaries but I can't see them killing their cash cow. They are greedy.
Of course, this could change, I suppose. A new idol could come along if Grandmother is put in the pokey.
but what they say is all negative.
It's hours of attack
If you believe it "doesn't make a difference what they say as long as they spell the name right" then your argument makes sense.
The size and the scope of the protests against Trump is evidence that people are listening to the hours of negatives and taking the negative message to heart.

Cruz handled him as well as anyone could. Chuck Todd didn’t ask one policy question of Cruz. You are all correct that the media will go after Trump relentlessly if he is the nominee against Hillary. I only get CNN on Dish down here in the Baja. It is 24/7 about Donald Trump. They broadcast his hour long press conferences, and then spend hours discussing Trump. Barely a word is said about Ted Cruz on CNN, except in a negative way. Cruz gets no free time on CNN or other networks.
Todd only asked one question during the whole interview, but at least Cruz was smart enough to get some of his main policy points across. You have to use what limited time the media gives you to get your point across, if you are not Donald Trump.
I'm sure if Cruzifer answered the question at the beginning, Todd would have asked different questions. The fact that lusTED stuck to his talking points, Todd keep pushing for an answer.

I hope he gets 1236 votes, Then we can have a Cruz/Fiorina vote at the convention…

“…But the plane doesn’t make noise and doesn’t pollute,” Piccard said a live video feed on the website documenting the journey….”
But it’s support group sure does “pollute” if you count emitting CO2 as a pollutant, which I don’t. But they most likely emitted other pollutants – will they publicize that?

Sorry, I only know one song from Prince – Purple Rain” – I guess he did other stuff, but I don;t know any of them.
Now if you name some Bob Dylan tunes I can probably name a hundred…
You know really this guy was basically irrelevant outside of the fact that he wrote quite a few songs that were hits for others. "Manic Monday" probably his best effort. But compared to Dylan or others, he is not a big deal. Even Dylan had his own hits that were far more relevant than this guy. McCartney and Lennon, even Donovan, far better...
Yes, songwriting and musical genius - actually two different types of genius are very rare. Yet today, with the rise of fandom, celebrity worship and the willingness to be followers many musicians/songwriters are declared as great and geniuses. You go to Youtube and you hear these will so many comments on various artists. Dylan was a genius and even though his lyrics were always good, a lot of his songs were mediocre - same with Lennon. But that large body of great songs and songs that were so different melodically from the previous generations, yet were still formed in the soil and soul of past musical traditions - they truly were those RARE geniuses. Not every generation gets a Dylan or a Van Gogh though the music industry sure wants to create that idea with its consuming customers and its artists they are promoting.
And Bob Dylan states openly he sold his soul to the devil and he keeps on because he's "holding up my side of the bargain".
Nah, I think that Tubman's a much better choice because she was important for what she did, not just the fact that she was a woman doing it. Amelia was the first woman to do something that men were already doing, but Tubman's work was intrinsically important regardless of the gender of who did it.

Trump never heard of a state called Wyoming, just like he never heard of a state called Colorado…
Obama is doing the same thing: treating cops like criminals and treating criminals like “freedom fighters”. Hillary and Bernie will do the same.

Good one. I hope CNN asks him about this tonight at the townhall (9pm EST). And I hope he can point out the details about the mayor treating cops like criminals and treating criminals like “freedom fighters”.

He should have said again that Mitch McConnell lied to him.

On 2nd thought, you people are probably right. At one point right before or after the ball hits the “mirror” you would see 2 balls. There is no mirror.
April 5, 2016 at 1:22pm
I see the mirror. Where is the smoke?
After reading the headline my first thought actually was that he must be throwing a ball at a mirror. Very clever!
