  1. I’m too lazy to edit, but click on the hot links…to Doug or Keith/WHD sites and you have the best sourced list in the worrrrrrrld to every bullet point.

  2. Denise, this is just fantastic, but can you keep up with it! I think there will be several hundred first’ which don’t enchance his electability.
    I think the GOP’s candidate should take a list like this and swear to reverse what can be reversed, put it on a website where people can comment. And monitor comments to weed out the DIM idiots crying RAACIST!!

    • You are my inspiration Birdie as well as your fabulous, snarkilicious community. I’ll try. The new book that just came out has been endorsed by Huffpo and Daily Beast as credible.
