"Democrats' motto should be "We hate America and we're doing everything we can to destroy it!"."

"That's the republicans"

Funny how you people genuinely say that :p Don't you find that a bit... bold?

Trump's new director of communications, Scaramucci, is an...interesting fellow, to say the least.

He's going to be hugely popular with the Trump supporters. No doubt about his public speaking abilities. Spicer was like a pinwheel that you could tell which direction he was spinning. I fear mucci you'll know everything is being spun bit it's hard to tell which way, without the proper knowledge of the subject. He's gonna peddle a lot of bull****, I can see it now.

Sarah H. Sanders is going to be the WH Press Secretary though, not Scaramucci.

That's right, I keep forgetting there are two positions. Regardless he brings extra slime to the swamp...

Libertarian entry should be them whining about having their taxes go to something that doesn't directly concern them, well or beating off to how they made themselves with no outside help whatsoever, really.

That's the Republicans, not Democrats :p

No, the Republican motto is "We're dumb as rocks, and we do whatever our corporate masters tell us."

I like Kushner but my verdict is definitely uncertain on Scaramucci ....he is nauseatingly obsequious to Trump but that may be part of his strategy to generally rebuild a better relationship with the media. In other words he has to pay the constant public homage to Trump that is expected from all Trump supporters  but he will work behind the scenes to create a more robust and constructive working environment from the White House around communication strategy

Sharp_one whats wrong with your ruling party? Why do some members of your government think they should have the right to appoint members of the supreme court and judiciary....this was an unacceptable expectation that was set and would never be tolerated in a Democratic institution like the EU

 

Well your president has prudently vetoed, I dont think he  wanted to but he had no choice,  these proposed laws. I imagine you must be feeling very embarrassed by what your government tried to do?

EU cannot do jack, because to do anything they would need consensus of all the countries and Visegrad group would never allow to do anything to one of it's members.
Polish ruling party as all socialistic parties just want more power for themselves and less for everybody else.

President could of course just sign those, what do you mean he had no choice? He was widely criticizes for signing everything his party sent to him. That's why it was such a shocker home and abroad he did those two vetoes. 

Personally I think it was due to his private conversation with Donald Trump.

There were thousands of people who took to the street in protest, I imagine the signing of these new laws would have been very bad for the popularity of the ruling party in the next election. So Andrzej Duda’s decision was about political expediency and survival rather than he cares personally if these laws are reasonable 

 

 

I do think Trump influenced this decision in some ways but the concern about populism sweeping through the world in Democratic countries is not much of a worry to me anymore. We can see from the local elections in Austria, Netherlands and France that the majority of people in the EU dont support this
