    Exactly. Never understood this romanticizing of Reagan. Now they want to give Bill Clinton’s accomplishments to Bush41. Then, I guess we should also give credit for the economic mess that Bush41 had to Reagan? We should give credit to Clinton for Bush43s economy before he messed it up. We should give credit to Bush43 for the beginning mess that Obama had. And, we should give credit for Trump’s economy to Obama. Republicans should learn that they can’t pick a scenario only when it benefits them. It’s not what POTUS inherited but what he passed along. Reagan and Bush43 passed along messes. Bush41 didn’t have time to fully correct Reagan’s mess. So he passed it along. Clinton and Obama passed along positive economies. And if Congress don’t rein in Trump, he’s going to pass along a mess too.

    I consider the people you named as having an aptitude. They had the natural ability or aptitude for dance. I don’t see Bobby as having either—natural ability or experience. It took almost 15 years before we got a winner like that but I guess it should be no surprise. People vote for various reasons. It just took almost 15 years before we (as the total) decided that “dance” was not important for a winner.

    Isn't this the first time that there was a winner with no dance aptitude/experience? I think that's why people are still replying. It's hard to believe that there were that many people who supported him. I guess we feel if we keep replying, we'll come back to reality where Bobby really didn't win :)

    I didn't really mean 100% but you are correct. But I really don't think that many of his supporters swallowed his story about working endless hours rehearsing. I think "Nashville" had more of an affect on who they would support.

    Wish Bobby hadn’t won but really not surprised. He is identified with country music. Don’t “country music” celebs always end up going further than their dance abilities? This is just the first time one of the “dance challenged” country celebs actually won. Country music fans are staunch supporters and they are avid DWTS viewers. Bobby’s brashness and insensitivity just endear him more to this group. They know other people didn’t like Bobby. That just made them double down and support him more. Kinda like sticking it to those they have deemed non-country/rural.

    I really have a different word for it. Why are TV producers still harping on this Monica-thing? I don't feel sorry for her. Most interns come from money or connections. So, I don't believe she wanted to kill herself. Or, she was flipped before this occurred. I don't believe she was misused. She didn't act like a virgin so she knew what she was doing. Didn't she and her friend preserve the dress? Cunning!! I don't think Bill Clinton should go around groveling so that the women TV analysts can have something else to talk about. Mika should be happy with Al Franken leaving. She should just cry over Trump's transgressions. He's the one who is affecting people's lives.

    No doubt this was true. It sounds like he idolized Reagan who pushed "trickle down" (which never happened). He was probably one of the republicans who didn't support Daddy Bush who had to raise taxes because the Reagan years had left us in such an economic state.

    The studio audience, judges and hosts normally act stunned and regretful when one of the best celebs is voted off. This isn't a first and probably won't be the last. I doubt if Cheryl or JP did anything except to make the viewers think that they are so good that there's no need to vote for them. I think voter-complacency doomed them.

    I agree with Joe about the deficit and the tax breaks. Obviously the other republicans aren’t thinking like him. Why else would you give a tax break when the economy is strong? Then throw out hints about the out-of-hand social programs? Besides wasn’t it Cheney who said if we learned anything from the Reagan years, it’s that deficits don’t matter? Was a little surprised that Joe didn’t give Reagan credit for the current ballooning deficit. But then he would’ve had to give Clinton the opposite credit. He even worked Obama into the picture even though he inherited the worse economic disaster.

    Well I had milo and JP as my final 2. Not bad but I do prefer JP. After so many seasons, I’m not surprised that Bobby made it. You had to figure someone undeserving would get there. Gotta bow down to showmance. Congrats Alexis. For me, milo and evanna made the finals the right way—good routines for good judges scores plus pleasing personalities for viewer votes. Either is deserving but I have to go with Evanna because Whitney has already won. Plus I enjoyed their contemporary routine. JPs AT was my favorite. He must’ve had a lot of training. He was too good.

    Democrats will not be over redistricting? America voted for republicans at that level as well. Why would they change things? They'll never win anything. They need gerrymandering and the electoral college. Wish they'd stop talking about Trump not talking about the economy. Most sane people know Trump is riding on Obama's coattails. Obama was on "Ws" coattails after his first two years. Thus, Obama got shellac as Joe put it. And, people evidently looked the other way on Trump's transgressions because he's really on Obama's. It takes a while to turn an economy where the citizens can feel it. Trump knows his supporters. Just like Eddie said, they're selfish, racist or greedy. We just didn't know there were that many people in America like that. Obviously, we only care about fairness, decency, righteousness, etc when it applies to women or POC. How else can you explain people voting for white men under indictment (Hunter and Collins)?

    I've always been amazed by how much the GOP (and some democrats) worship Reagan. They've been rewriting/cherry picking his history since he left.

    General Gabbery: DWTS

    I’m sure Mark wanted to win more; not just because Derek won so many times but because he probably felt he had celebs who had performed the best. I’ve always preferred Mark’s dancing over Derek’s and I prefer Mark’s choreography as well. But Derek is better for DWTS. The main thing he has over Mark is height which makes him look better on TV with the celebs and extensions. Derek was the only blonde male pro. Everyone loved his sister when she was a pro and it naturally filtered to him. Derek presented his celeb better, both dance wise and personality wise. So I can see why he won so many times.

    Really hadn't thought about this. They really should target ole Mitch. What normal thinking person wouldn't be disgusted by him? But the democrats suck at disparaging people. And they don't have the will to stay with negativity long enough to matter. Even the ministers of the right stick with their negative actions.

    Agree. Greedy wants more.
