I think we all agree on that.

Maybe Jeff Sessions will be brave enough to do it.

I prefer Rudy for mostly one reason.......

He's just very public.......He likes the spotlight and he'll keep the revolution motivated.........

The really big danger we still have in our country is the crooked media - CNN and MSNBC, especially.........Keeping the spotlight on the crooked media is a biggie..........Rudy will mount a constant attack on 'em......... 

The best fighters I ever saw, loved the fight........So does Rudy..........

Well, we'll see........

Rudy could be approved........Not too sure Sessions will be.........

Secretary of State is wasting Guiliani's talent, IMO.......

He needs to be AG.......And, may be before all is said and done.......

But then, I gotta admit, so are you........Pabar is too, but, don't tell him........


Maybe Dewey is back after all.

So you are hoping Trump's pick, Sessions, does not get confirmed?

Tom Price is a big gov't RINO.  He does hate Obamacare though.

I'm not hoping anything........

To think Trump's nominees will, all, get confirmed, well, maybe, maybe not........Remains to be seen........There will be some push-back, for sure.......

The list could get re-arranged..........

I do find it odd how everybody seems to readily accept the nominations as being the final deal.......

If Congress is that capitulated, the Democratic party really is toast.......

Would say a lot about the job Ryan and McConnell's been doing, now wouldn't it?

So Trump appoints another insider to a cabinet position. The drain must be plugged because the swamp is still full.

On the note Spaz brought up.......

The effect of Trump's presidency on the stock market is gonna be interesting........

There definitely is a "bubble" in the markets that will have to be dealt with........Some warn that heating up the economy too fast will have an adverse effect..........And, some are concerned that infrastructure spending will increase the bubble because of the source of the capital needed to do it........Where will that money come from?........

There no doubt will be some conflict when Trump attempts to influence the Fed.......Yellen isn't Trump's favorite chairman........The markets could get fickle over all this stuff........Can Trump head this off?.........We'll see.......

caught that.  rudy is under consideration now for SOS - which would be a mistake, IMHO.

IMO Rudy would have a rough confirmation as SOS because of some of his financial dealings, especially after they hammered Clinton on her taking money from foreign governments.  I would guess there are some republican senators that would not vote to confirm.

There are a couple of people here who are always wrong........

And, they think Sessions will be confirmed for AG and Rudy will have trouble being confirmed for SOS.......

The opposite is the truth........


I was waiting for Durden to pounce while I was chumming before bringing up the "confirmed" part on Sessions vs. Rudy......... 

Had Mike thinking about pouncing, too, I see.......I should have waited.......Maybe Rudy will be submitted if Sessions gets denied.......That's more than the never-Trumpers could handle.........

Rudy is a shoe-in for whatever position he wants.......How can anyone not know that?

Trump has a plan that Rudy will fit like a glove........Does that include SOS?.......I think not.........But, using Rudy like he's doing is smart........Probably Rudy's plan to begin with.......

These two guys are smarter than even Durden, Pabar and Mike.......

For me, personally.  I would rather see Rudy be AG and Sessions be SOS.  I just think those roles suit their personalities better.

Rudy being SOS could definitely work.  You could certainly expect him to be direct unlike Kerry or Clinton.

I think heating up of economy is easy to deal with.  just pull back on the QE lever.  Obama has been printing so much damn money, the high numbers in the stock market are truly deceiving.  When a dollar is worth 60% of what it was before Obama's QE whackiness, the 19k does not really mean all that much.

They used to have a term, 'adjusting for inflation'.  While that is not exactly the right term currently, we have not really seen classic inflation because the other policies from this president have capped any growth the that money printing was trying to drive.  It would be more adjusting for the value of the dollar.

Rudy has said he won't be AG, I guess it could all be a smokescreen and Sessions was set up to not be confirmed.

Rudy would have been great for AG, there are already republicans on record saying they will not confirm him for SOS.

Tightening may cause a smooth pull-back........Problem may be that QE has been the order of the day for so long that the "falling knife" scenario might happen.......There's a lot of "dumb" money in the markets.....

There's a whole lot of smart money just waiting to get out of the markets with a rising interest rate........Falling knives can be deadly.........

UWA, what I'm interested in watching is how much short money goes into the market if the Fed raises in December......

It's been so long since they've raised, the short-sellers haven't had this kind of opportunity in a long time.......

Sessions will be confirmed after Dems make him repeatedly answer questions from 30 years ago. Their real issue with him is http://www.politico.com/story/2016/11/jeff-sessions-immigration-crackdown-231800.

Rudy is probably better suited for DHS than State.

This would be fitting for Mitt at tonight's dinner meeting:

Romney has no one to kick but himself.  Trump appeared genuine to want to bring Romney on board.  Only after pretty much everyone else said 'hell no' did it all get hung up.

Outside of Sessions, who in the Republican party, or the Democratic party would make a great Secretary of State.  I am not talking a Kerry or Clinton, that bar is below zero.  

I am talking a Kissenger level type person.  While I did not necessarily agree with Kissenger's politics, you had to agree he understood what made the world tick, and was able to communicate that effectively to the American people.   It does not have to be a Kissenger level guy, but at least someone that has written about foriegn affairs, or demonstrated some understanding of the world.  

Confused Clinton and Sleepy Kerry SOS were disasters, and put us in a situation where it seems like the US does not really understand the world.  We need to stop treating SOS as a political football to be handed out. Someone that can partner with Mad Dog to get the middle east on a better track would be great.

Pattreus is really the only name I can come up with.

John Bolton. Trump can keep him muzzled until it's time to let that dog hunt.

I just have never been a fan.  He seems dull.  I just hear this wonk wonk wonk noise when he is talking.  

He actually thought there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.  That we somehow missed them.  I was for the Iraq war at the time, but cringed immediately when Bush started floating the weapons of mass destruction story, and all the Neocons jumped on board.  So dumb.  I said at the time the better f--kin well be weapons of mass destruction and they had better find them or he has just de-legitimatized the whole effort.  

That whole thing was a knee jerk to dems defending the war effort, and blaming it all on oil.   Of course it was about oil.  A little about terrorism getting exported to the US.  But way more about oil.  The middle east is a sh1tpile full of sand without oil.  Even the terrorism thing only really happens because of the oil riches provides them enough money they can get flights and plans to attack us.   Even now that US has enough energy independence that we could tell the middle east to f-off, it would still be devastating to the overall oil market.   

Bolton to me is about as close to the rights version of John Kerry as you can get.  Better on the politics side than Kerry, but overall low energy, go with the political flow of his party BS, that somehow often ends up in our foreign affairs positions.
