I want to live in a country where the man who washes dishes sends his freedom-loving son to Princeton, Harvard law school & the White House.

@dpinsen it shouldn’t have been an issue then.

I want to live in a country where who your father or husband is doesn’t make you presidential contender. No thanks, Romney, Hillary or Bush.

When Peter Thiel endorses his longtime friend Ted Cruz something really weird will happen in the Silicon Valley zeitgeist.

Ted Cruz coalition = blue collar + conservative base + upwardly mobile Asians, Mexicans + business community + bored by Hillary + millenials

.@artistofideas I was raised by hippies, read all the books the GenXers did, but grew up a digital native. In short, I’m the terminator.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to artistofideas

@dpinsen Nixon was a champion. He always had the mean streak. It was always there. And he won in 1960.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dpinsen

The question for Ted Cruz is can he transcend the conservative ghetto & build a coalition that includes historically left-wing factions?

via Twitter Web Client

@artistofideas I’m a millennial. I bet I would surprise you. We weren’t all raised by single mothers & the TV. Some of us sweated.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to artistofideas

I will never forgive Mitt Romney not fighting to win against Barack Obama. The economy isn’t the only issue, you fool.

via Twitter Web Client

@TroyRiser You mean when the Establishment was. They wanted to hug Obama.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TroyRiser

@dpinsen Sure but he doesn’t have the skillset to get there so he’s not a champion.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dpinsen

I wish Mitt Romney were as much of a villain as people say. I know a killer when I see one. We wanted Bain; we got America’s Dad. It sucked.

via Twitter Web Client

.@dpinsen @JuliaTillou We’re not electing a Pope. We’re electing a president. I’m not looking for moral; I’m looking for killer instinct.

treesaree @ChuckCJohnson Rand Paul on @HowieCarrShow today could not withstand a bit of criticism, caved like a smores in a fatty’s mouth

via Mobile Web (M5) (retweeted on 11:34 PM, Jan 9th, 2015 via Twitter Web Client)

To be a great politician you need to enjoy the curb stomp of an opponent. Reagan did. Nixon did. Bush did. Mitt Romney does not. He’ll lose

via Twitter Web Client

@JuliaTillou @dpinsen I do, too, and I remember how he cheated James Rappoport in 2002.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JuliaTillou

@JuliaTillou @dpinsen On the contrary. I do not seek worldly possessions. I’m a journalist.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JuliaTillou

There’s nothing worse than a politician who doesn’t understand when their moment has passed.

via Twitter Web Client

@JuliaTillou @dpinsen It’s great that Romney’s rich but I see no evidence that he’s moral.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JuliaTillou

@JohnRiversToo Not in the way I’ve envisioned it. They built the news first, rather than analyzed the conversation and built the news.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JohnRiversToo

I know! Mitt Romney can run on the economy again & talk about none of the other issues. It’ll go just swell, guys.

via Twitter Web Client

@JohnRiversToo perhaps, but there’s riches in the niches. You crack local reporting and you get good ad value…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JohnRiversToo

I’ve met and talked to Mitt Romney on multiple occasions. He does not have the mean streak, the joy in seeing an opponent crushed, needed.

via Twitter Web Client

Don’t worry about electability. Worry about conviction. I’ll take care of Hillary.

via Twitter Web Client

Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush, & Chris Christie candidacies are really last hurrah of Baby Boomers not exiting stage left. GenX, presidency please.

via Twitter Web Client

Why should Mitt Romney be president & why should we care? There are a lot of rich men in this country, many much richer than he.

via Twitter Web Client

I lived in Massachusetts when Mitt Romney was governor. I was decidedly unimpressed. Please spare us the Reagan comparisons.

via Twitter Web Client

Sorry, Mitt Romney, but we need to cut weak players to build championship teams. Surely you understand. You ran the Olympics.

via Twitter Web Client

@JohnRiversToo but they don’t really cover Texas at all.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JohnRiversToo

If Mitt Romney were evaluating Mitt Romney as a Bain consultant he’d conclude he was a two-time loser, unlikely to perform, & fire himself.

via Twitter Web Client

I’m really bored by news that is focused exclusively on DC, NYC & LA. The country is moving South & Southwest, guys. Get with the times.

via Twitter Web Client

In the future I think investment companies, opposition research companies, news companies… will all become just information companies.
