Donald Trump and Paul Ryan Could Not Be Further Apart – NBCNews

When talks, but any kind, don’t go well the talking points are that it is going positively. And that’s all you heard today from the Republicans that met with Donald Trump. It was positive. Over and over again it was positive. You are saying positive way too much.
Paul Ryan actually brought charts into the meeting to try to explain to Trump how things work. I don’t think he got through. Trump did make a point that he is won more votes than anyone before and that his poll numbers are really high. That is very hard to disagree with but I think Paul Ryan is playing the long game. Paul Ryan wants to be president. The main reason he did not want to be speaker of the house and was The Reluctant Bride for so long is that rarely do speakers of the house become president. And he really is power hungry. His misstep in 2012 being the vice presidential candidate to Mitt Romney’s failure is forgivable in terms of the electorate. But jumping on board with Donald Trump and Donald Trump bringing everything down around him is not forgivable.
There’s a Chinese curse that says may you live in interesting times. I guess we are all cursed.

What Saturday’s Wins for Sanders Mean & Don’t Mean-NBCNews

The numbers don’t lie. Bernie Sanders must-win 66% of remaining delegates while Hillary Clinton only needs to win 34%. If that’s not clear to Bernie supporters perhaps they are using new math. In the remaining big States Hillary is leading him in some cases by double digits. This would have to turn around in a manner that would be akin to a disaster on Hillary Clinton’s side. I believe the more the electorate here is about what is happening in Europe the more they’ll want someone who is commander-in-chief who has had foreign policy experience and does not give it to Wall Street each time he is asked about it.
