Documenting the locals' anti-Clinton agenda 4
Mike Myer mails it in on a column that is essentially a collection of old Hillary Clinton quotes. Not much analysis and nothing that is new; it's mostly a "greatest hits" collection including the overplayed "we're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business."
The column also has a . . .

Wanted: Republican who can stand up to liberal legislators and bureaucrats
Today's Mike Myer' column in the Intelligencer laments that while a budget was finally passed by the legislature, it contained only a few budget cuts.

Balancing the state budget?

A good question: "What's it going to take?"
What are the real threats to our children?
Our local keyboard commando is back today urging us to do more against IS. Like most of the Republicans in Congress, Mike Myer blames the president but he's a bit short on specifics beyond "doing more." Instead, he concentrates on amping up the fear, concluding:
What's it going to take? A bunch of kids on their . . .
