Who is John Boehner? He’s a republican and was the 53rd Speaker of the United States House of Representatives from 2011 to 2015. Pretty powerful dude. Today, he threw Ted Cruz under the bus, backed up and ran over him again.
We quote: “I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.” Yikes. Ya think he doesn’t like him?
In case that wasn’t enough, Boehner went on to say the following: Don’t be surprised if two weeks before the convention here comes Joe Biden parachuting in and Barack Obama fanning the flames to make it all happen. Boehner is certainly giving the media much fodder. If you like juicy tidbits, we’ve got one for you. Blanche, stop drooling. Publisher HarperCollins put out an investigative book about the Clintons by conservative author Peter Schweizer. It quickly became a best seller. Ready for the name? Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.
As if that wasn’t enough it’s being screened in Cannes this week and will debut in the US a week before the democratic convention which is supposedly going to crown Hillary as queen. Somebody out there really, really doesn’t like Hillary. As for The Donald, he’s riding a big wave. Get this: Donald Trump will likely wind up winning the most primary votes of any GOP presidential candidate in modern history. Trump has roughly 10.1 million votes, about 200,000 more than Mitt Romney got during the entire 2012 primary campaign.
Don’t get excited yet if you want Trump to be president. Here’s the result of a very interesting poll recently conducted: Nearly one-in-four voters say they will stay home or vote third party if Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are the major party presidential candidates.
In a national telephone survey of likely U.S. voters Trump and Clinton tied at 38% each. Now that’s something.
After many people somehow got onto the White House grounds, the Secret Service is taking action. They will raise the height of the White House security fence by five feet and add a new concrete foundation.
Blanche, we have been writing about people who can’t wait to jump over that fence only to be met by some vicious dogs. No shortage of nutballs south of the border.
By now every ant has heard about the $5.6 billion Bombardier-Delta deal. Of course it’s not really worth $5.6 billion. That’s the price tag. It’s kind of like going to a factory where they say that’s the suggested price. It’s worth probably half of that.
While we think this is wonderful and the star of Quebec finally made a sale, we have some reservations. It seems from what we have read that Bombardier is one of the most inefficiently run businesses this side of the moon. There are deadlines which must be met in this deal, something Bombardier can’t seem to figure out.
Toronto got majorly screwed when Bombardier could not deliver their subway trains on time and were forced to buy them elsewhere. Time will tell if they can actually ship the goods on time. No doubt there are late penalties.
Shortened version of Blanche today due to the onset of the second days of Passover tonight.
Good Shabbos, We’ll talk…
