Jennifer Rubin: How Hillary Clinton and Paul Ryan could work together 30.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., implausibly — and contradictorily — insists that he agrees more than he disagrees with Donald Trump, and besides can stop the long list of nutty stuff Trump wants to do. In fact, the two differ on entitlement reform, trade, immigration, Russia, NATO and much more. The really nutty stuff Trump may do — disregarding treaties, wrecking alliances, cozying up to Vladimir Putin, ignoring court decisions, fueling bigotry, provoking a standoff with our military, ruining ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Democrats have always believed in family, faith, and country. Now everyone sees it. 30.7.2016 Daily Kos
For almost a century, Republicans have engaged in a sustained campaign of lies about the Democratic Party. The Democrats, claimed the GOP, hate the military. They’re hostile to religion. They support the dissolution of the family. They cravenly crave a weak nation without respect in the world and a nannying state at home that interferes in citizens’ lives daily. Malarkey, as someone we love would say—all of it. But so long and so effectively have Republicans peddled this nonsense that the traditional media and many Americans grew to accept it. It became an ugly and painful burden for us: We knew it wasn’t true, but no matter our protestations, no one seemed to believe us. Well, they believe us now. Donald Trump, in pursuing the nightmare vision that Hillary Clinton brilliantly excoriated as “Midnight in America,” has exposed the Republican Party as the true embodiment of the caricature conservatives drew of the Democrats. And that stark difference was showcased in extraordinary fashion throughout the two ...

The Trump Files: When Democrats Courted Donald 28.7.2016 Mother Jones
Until the election, we're bringing you "The Trump Files," a daily dose of telling episodes, strange-but-true stories, or curious scenes from the life of presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump. Democrats weren't always bashing Donald Trump. In fact, in 1987, they were seemingly desperate to get his star power on their side. Even though Trump was a registered Republican, House Speaker Jim Wright (D-Texas) and other high-ranking Democrats asked Trump to host their annual Democratic Congressional fundraising dinner the next year. Rank-and-file Democratic lawmakers cheered the effort on. Future presidential nominee John Kerry chimed in to invite Trump on behalf of the Senate Democrats. "He's young, dynamic, successful," gushed Rep. Beryl Anthony Jr., the head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, to the New York Times . He cited Trump's wish to help negotiate nuclear arms reduction treaties as evidence Trump was in the wrong party. "The message Trump has been preaching is a Democratic message," ...
