    Fake News @CNN & MSDNC keep talking about “Lt. Col.” Vindman as though I should think only how wonderful he was. Actually, I don’t know him, never spoke to him, or met him (I don’t believe!) but, he was very insubordinate, reported contents of my “perfect” calls incorrectly, &...

    ....

    Bill Kristol responded:

    He’s not “Lt. Col.” Vindman. He’s Lt. Col. Vindman. It’s his real rank in a real military, in which he earlier saw combat and was wounded. It’s hard for you to grasp,@realDonaldTrump, but he’s not some guy dressed up as a soldier for reality TV or as entertainment at Mar-a-Lago.

    The Speaker of the House tore up a speech on the house floor so I suppose we can call it a draw.

    By the way, it's not Lt. Col. Vindman. It's LTC Vindman.

    Many great businessmen were petty and vindictive. Take Edison for example. But they were business men and financiers, not Presidents or diplomatic. Perhaps corporate takeovers have extended to governments.

    Pelosi tears up papers, and Trump retaliates against a war hero for speaking up. [sarcasm]Yeah, that should balance out...[/sarcasm]

    Learn about it here.

    Both are acceptable contractions, according to the Army.

    Yes it is in the Army LTC. However in the Joint environment Lt. Col. is acceptable as that is the way the Marines and Air Force depict the rank.

    Bill Kristol may just be the last remaining Neo Con left in the Republican Party.

    Most of them have left the party, but Kristol continues to hope.

    On the other hand, George Westinghouse was also a successful businessman who was loved and admired by his employees.

    And some people love other people earlier in their political careers then all of a sudden don’t like them. Like Chuck Schumer used the name Trump to get elected.

    Vindman showed himself to be quite vindictive - against Russia, which was his reason for testifying. Russia hawks always seem to lose at the ballot box, yet they seem to keep getting their way politically, and the reason for that is people him.

    Kind of strange how just a few years ago Bill Kristol was considered by the left to be a little lower than anti-christ junior over the Iraq war and now he's been rehabilitated.

    There doesn't seem to be much evidence for that, although one might draw that impression from his testimony concerning Putin's most prominent backer in the government.

    I think of several that haven't left the party they just couldn't vote for Trump. That doesn't mean that they aren't voting for Republican Congress members in both the federal and state election, Republican governors, etc.

    No, but I'm pretty sure one could find a few in that long list.

    If Bill Kristol, the chief of the "NeverTrumpers," said it...it doesn't mean anything except that he still is hoping Trump won't win the 2016 election.
