The most surprising thing about the coverage of last night’s debate came when I saw a breaking news alert from CNN saying that “Trump performed better than expected…” How is that possible? Was someone expecting the orange man-child to develop seizures or pull out a gun and fire at Clinton? The
It is difficult to address all of the issues that make Donald Trump unfit for the presidency, but after the last long post, which you can find here, I realized quickly that I hadn’t done much more than scratch the surface. There will be a few other parts to this coming
I have been watching these debates for a long time. I remember sitting in my living room with my mom and hearing Gerald Ford tell Jimmy Carter that Eastern Europe wasn’t under Soviet Union influence. That was a single gap and it quite likely cost Ford the 1976 election. My,
You know what’s going to happen tonight. We all do, if we really think about it and think about it hard. There will be a debate tonight. Hillary Clinton will show up and offer a huge helping of competence and she will demonstrate that she knows what she’s doing. She
Can you claim to be a Christian and also plan to vote for Donald Trump? Sure. It’s a free country; if you want to call yourself a dog and bark to communicate, you can do that if you wish. It all depends on how accurate you perceive yourself as being.
See, here’s the thing… I write a blog. Actually, to be truthful, I write a lot of blogs. You don’t know where a lot of them are because I ghostwrite them, but that’s another story. The point is, I write a blog. I use journalistic standards and I even use
The “false equivalence” stuff between the two parties has never been more inappropriate than it is this year. I don’t just mean Trump vs. Hillary. It’s about Republican vs. Democrat. It’s about what the far right believes vs. what every other decent human believes. So, when you say something as
I wasn’t sure how I felt about the suddenly-popular term “alt-right” at first, but now I flat-out reject it. Given that the Republican Party made a conscious decision to recruit racists and bigots into their fold way back in 1964 because they were tired of losing, how “alt” can the
We really can’t afford to be complacent. I mean that more literally than I have ever meant it. Yes, I know – every election in the last 20 years has been “the most important in our lifetime.” You’re tired of hearing it. That’s just too damn bad, to be honest.
First of all, let’s get this out of the way… Donald Trump does not want to be elected president. You can tell, if you look closely enough. Ever since it was apparent he was going to outlast the rest of the Republican Klown Kar and walk away with the Republican
Donald Trump seems to be confused, but he’s not. When it comes to talking about ISIL/Daesh, Trump is doing what he’s done all along; his people are listening to and reading the professional right wing and he’s mimicking whatever they hear. This is because that is the only way he
I am not usually one of those who worries easily. Most of the time, when a Republican says something stupid or somewhat threatening, I find it hard to take them seriously. For example, when some GOP idiot gets on the floor of the House and suggests that President Obama not
As all of you know, I think – no, I’m actually certain – that George W. Bush was the worst president in history. The main reason his presidency was so bad was because he simply wasn’t up for the job. Listening to his speeches made my skin crawl because I
I have been saying all along that Donald Trump is not running for president because he wants to be president. All of us thought he would have a snowball’s chance in hell because we figured the GOP and the RNC had the means to stop him. I am convinced that
Why are so many people acting as if Trump is something new from the GOP? It’s almost as if the media is bending over backward to insinuate that Trump is some sort of anomaly. They are trying really hard to separate his actions from the actions of their beloved Republican
by @SueinRockville – Originally posted at Daily Kos Most people have no idea who Trump’s Campaign Manager Paul Manafort (aka “Paulie Walnuts”) really is. Wikipedia states that he has been involved in Republican political campaigns since 1976. Besides helping candidates win offices, he has been a vigorous lobbyist. His client
