  1. Mrs. Landingham has been the President's secretary for a long time. In fact, he first met her when he was in high school and she was his father's secretary

  2. What is your opinion of Josh & Donna's relationship?

    ReplyDelete
  3. What do you think of this conversation between the President and the retiring Supreme Court justice?

    ReplyDelete
  4. Danny (a reporter) has been asking C.J. (the Press Secretary) out for the past several months

  5. I think he is very cranky and bitter

  6. It seems the Supreme Court justice feels he has a lot more authority than the president.

  7. they seem like they really trust eachother and get work done. - Colten

    ReplyDelete
  8. I feel like the Court justice is trying to warn the president to change his ways. He wants the president to become more gutsy.-Tyler Szy.

  9. I feel like several conversations are happening here at once.

  10. Danny needs to pursue a different woman.

  11. I'm not sure what to think of Josh and Donna. He seems somewhat wimpy, and she complains a lot. ~ Adam

    ReplyDelete
  12. It seems that Josh is a little mean to her and argues with her constantly, but overall they have a good relationship. Otherwise she would have quit by now.

  13. Their relationship is very close. They work together and trust what each other has to say.

  14. Danny should avoid work relationships... and he can do much better
    Dylan

  15. I think that Josh takes advantage of Donna and doesn't appreciate the things she does for him.

  16. While Josh and Donna may seem to argue a lot, they have a very unique relationship where they can get along well and get the job done.

  17. How does Josh take advantage of Donna that makes no sense

  18. Most politicians tend to become more moderate than their campaign promises once they become elected, whether they campaigned as highly liberal or highly conservative. that's what the Supreme court justice was pointing out. -Jordan M

  19. Josh is cocky. -Matthew (Fil)

  20. am i the only one that noticed all the girls are worried about how josh treats donna , but all the guys don't even mention it or seem to care about the treatment?

  21. I thought the President and the Judge are both very stubborn and set in what they want. They both might have good reasons for what they want, but the conflict between the person leaving and the person appointing the replacement is interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Josh and Donna work well together. She worries a lot and he is always there to calm her down. Also I think the Supreme Court Justice feels he has more power than the president because he has been around longer.

  23. Both Donna and Josh use Josh and Donna, so they have a perfect work relationship and get a lot of work don

    ReplyDelete
  24. He takes advantage of her because when she warns him about the banging that something is going to go wrong he doesn't believe her and then the section on the ceiling comes down. She gives him warnings and he never looks at them. He complains about her.
    -Amber N.

  25. A mixture of significant reactions from laughter to fear are being shown within the core staff of the White House.

    ~~Brecken V.V.~~

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think the relationship between two White House staffers would quickly turn too political and interfere with their common goals as cabinet members for the president
    -Dylan

    ReplyDelete
  27. I think Josh treats Donna like his secretary, someone who should help him to be organized, he's not taking advantage of her in any way. That's her job. -Alli

    ReplyDelete
  28. Since the justice feels like he has more experience, he feels like he has the authority to tell the president what to do despite the fact it is the president's responsibility to appoint the new justice. The justice is trying prove superiority and authority to appoint his replacement. - Amy

    ReplyDelete
  29. what I find interesting is that the President never admitted that the nominee was Harrison, but the conversation progressed as if they both already knew. Not surprising, but several conversations have happened this way.
    Adam M.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Amber, I agree, but I do think that without her Josh would be lost - example: loosing memos. He needs her, even if he does complain.

    ReplyDelete
  31. The Supreme Court Justice must have been pretty convincing because now the President is second-guessing himself.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I understand how the Justice feels. He has waited all of those years to retire at the best possible opportunity, but now the President is not responding how the Justice felt he would. That would be frustrating.
    Adam

    ReplyDelete
  33. All the girls? Are you sure? Because i'm pretty sure some boys have said things about how Josh treats Donna and i also read some girl comments that don't complain about how Josh treats Donna.

    ReplyDelete
  34. this episode seems to be heating up real fast.
    -Colten (jimbo)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I don't necessarily disagree with the Justice wanting to help pick his replacement. After spending 30 years on the bench he should have some sort of say.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Harrison is a moderate Democrat and is an easy confirmation.

    Mendoza more closely reflects the Presidents views but will be a difficult (if not impossible) confirmation.

    What would you do as President?

    ReplyDelete
  37. we have to turn evidence over about ourselves with our drug testing.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I find it interesting the drug "thing" can just casually come up in conversation with the president but he just drops it like its no big deal when Toby tells him not to worry about it. He literaly only cares about his nominee... -Matthew (Fil)

    ReplyDelete
  39. If the justice is not fond of how the president may pick, as he implied during the conversation, why wouldnt he pick a different administration to retire under
    -Dylan

    ReplyDelete
  40. I would choose Mendoza, because I am more of a maverick and believe strongly in my convictions.

    ~~Brecken~~

    ReplyDelete
  41. Granted Donna does deserves more respect, I think Josh has a few bigger problems to deal with before thinking of how he's treating his assistant.

    ReplyDelete
  42. "we have to turn evidence over about ourselves with our drug testing. "

    True. Check out Vernonia vs. Acton (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vernonia_School_District_47J_v._Acton) to find out why.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Danny needs to give up on C.J.

    ReplyDelete
  44. If I were president I would push for the man/woman that I thought would most represent my views in the supreme court. I would feel more obligated to fight for somebody I beleived in rather than someone I just partially liked.-Tyler Szy.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Harrison seems a little fruity, i would go with Mendoza. i also feel people need to put their names down.
    -colten (jimbo)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I agree with tyler's comment about the nominee.

  47. Go for the pick that you feel best reflects your views, at worst it will not go through and you can go with your backup that will go through easily
    -Dylan

    ReplyDelete
  48. Mendoza becuase you have to go with what you believe in even if it is going to challenge you.

    ReplyDelete
  49. How big of an issue is the right to privacy going to be in the near future.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I think that the more he questions his decision the more likel he is to choose the wrong candidate. He should just stick with his first choice if that's who he thinks will do the best job.

    ReplyDelete
  51. No matter how high the challenge is, if you want the one you believe in to have the seat, then you gotta fight for it. Why choose one that doesn't go with your beliefs?
    ~Stacey McMorrow

    ReplyDelete
  52. never second guess yourself, he must go with his original candidate and trust his first instinct. if not, you usually go back and regret your decicsion in the near future.

  53. Privacy should be a right in a typical corporate job, but when you are essentially making up the executive branch of the United States, there is no right to privacy when it comes to drug testing
    -Dylan

    ReplyDelete
  54. With the growing phenomenon of completely uncensored anonimity on the internet, security of the aforementioned anonimity will be incredibly significant in the coming years.

    ~~Brecken~~

    ReplyDelete
  55. Pick the person who more closely follows your beliefs. It might be harder to get a confirmation, but that nominee will potentially be influencing extremely important decisions for centuries.

  56. I think the right for privacy is going to be a big issue in the future. It will bring up issues such as search warrents or schools searching students lockers. People will want the right for privacy but not think of everything that will exclude for officials to search for evidence and keep a handle on citizens. - marissa

  57. The explosion of internet and technology will prove to be a growing issue for privacy. Regardless of firewalls, we are all at risk of our privacy being violated. - Amy

    ReplyDelete
  58. I think privacy will be a big issue and it already is in some ways. Anybody can find out information about you if you put it on the internet, like socical security numbers and credit cards.

    ReplyDelete
  59. sometimes privacy is a privilage. For example with the drug testing, because you are part of the white house and you are in question you should have nothing to hide and your job can overcome what level of privacy you have.
    -Amber N.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Privacy is a very important issue for the future. Everyone wants privacy, which is a right guaranteed to us all. However, when it comes to such a topic as drug testing in the White House or other important problems in the White House, I believe those issues shouldn't remain completely private.

  61. I would go with the challenging canidate. If nothing else, he doesn't go through and you go back to the guy who will pass.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Privacy is one of the most important things today and will be a huge issue in the future. Everybody has a right to privacy. Choosing what things and situations they may have privacy for will be a different issue.

    -Michelle

  63. i think when it comes to something illegal drugs then a simple drug test is needed.

  64. that reporter guy hitting on CJ is a fruitcake.

  65. wow... goldfish.

  66. Who knew a goldfish could bring thgem closer together?

  67. Everybody likes a little privacy. How far the government is able to get into that privacy is for politicians and civilians to debate.-Tyler Szy.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Civillians should have the same amount of privacy that politicians have.
    -Amber

    ReplyDelete
  69. I think we should have MORE privacy than politicians.

    ReplyDelete
  70. If there isn't a line drawn between privacy and where the government can go, then eventually everything will be regulated and reviewed by the government like in V for Vendetta.

  71. Privacy on the internet can't get much higher. People know the little privacy they have on the internet and yet they choose to post things they shouldn't post. Why should we have more privacy than politician?
    -Amber

    ReplyDelete
  72. Politicians are elected to represent the people. Consequentially the people should have the right to know what narcotics are or are not affecting the decisions made to represent them in government
    -Dylan

    ReplyDelete
  73. No matter what, there needs to be a line that the government can not cross in the case of privacy. If there is no line, everyone will tend to feel violated by the gov't and anyone else who they feel is getting in on their private life. In all situations, we need privacy.

    -cody

    ReplyDelete
  74. I agree Amber. People are informed about their privacy on the internet yet they still say, do, and put whatever they want on them.

    Michelle

  75. Privacy. It's a right.

    ReplyDelete
  76. The issue of privacy can be debated because of different situations. For example the drug situation. Or is it ok to wave privacy when someones safety is at risk?
    -Colten (jimbo)

    ReplyDelete
  77. like Sam said, privacy is not a right.

  78. Good conversation...byah
