Helping ‘ol Saint Nick

adriana-cohen-boston-herald-cover-23dec2015Santa Claus is making a list of who’s been naughty and who’s been nice. The sleigh is being loaded with candy canes for pols who made us proud and coal for those who didn’t:

COAL

President Obama: ISIS isn’t a “JV” team that’s “contained.” Please stay in Hawaii.

Hillary Clinton: Lied — again — when she said she didn’t send or receive classified information on her home-brew email server.

Speaker Paul Ryan: Passed the $1.1 trillion omnibus bill financing Obama’s lefty agenda. Like the GOP needs another John Boehner.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry: Orchestrated the disastrous Iran nuclear deal.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: His spine went missing — like Clinton’s emails — on Kate’s Law, a much-needed immigration law that would’ve protected Americans by keeping criminal illegals out of our country.

U.S. Rep Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.): Calling the Benghazi probe a partisan hack job against Hillary Clinton discredited a worthwhile investigation.

Democrats in Congress: Memo to the Iran deal backers — Iran’s already launching ballistic missiles amid chants of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel.”

IRS head John Koskinen: For stonewalling Congress during the Lois Lerner Tea Party scandal.

CANDY CANES

helping-old-st-nickU.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.): Refused to play politics with our security. She broke ranks with Obama and told the American people the truth — ISIS is not contained. Feinstein also warned that our power grid, air traffic control and dams are vulnerable to a terror attack. More Democrats like this, please.

Donald Trump: Single-handedly destroyed political correctness. He turned the left’s biggest strength into a weakness, making a lot of Republicans look like amateurs. Like him or not, he’s impressive and could be our next president. Candy canes coming for protecting free speech like nobody’s business.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders: Hate the socialism, love the authenticity. Voters know Bernie’s freebies won’t be free. But we also know Sanders isn’t a phony. With a Beltway full of them, we heart Bernie for that.

FBI Director James Comey: Up front with the American people. He doesn’t downplay threats we face … or blame a video.

Dr. Ben Carson: This brain surgeon is intelligent, diplomatic and has enough charm to melt an iceberg.

Carly Fiorina: She’s held her own with a very competitive, highly qualified presidential field, showing she has what it takes to be commander in chief.

Gov. Charlie Baker: One year in office, this Blue State Republican is ranked the best governor in 50 states. How? By being competent, trustworthy and a good manager.

U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch: He broke with his fellow Democrats and voted against Obamacare. With skyrocketing costs, insurers dropping out and costly taxpayer bailouts, 2015 proved he was right.

Merry Christmas all!
