Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

From The New York Times:

‘I Keep My Promises,’ Trump Said. Let’s Check.

Here’s a report card on whether the president met his 2016 campaign pledges.

This link should get you behind the paywall. If not I’m happy to pist a summary.

BOOM! I love this guy. I would vote for him no matter what side he was on, and many independent moderates agree. People may think that the Republican party is morphing into Trumps image. It is not. THIS guy, Mr. Crenshaw, is already a political rockstar. He will be the nominee in 2024. He would beat Trump even now if he wanted too. He's a good facts spitter without ever being insulting, degrading, shows respect but can kill you in an argument or an actual fight. Alpha MFing Male.
Yes I have a man crush on him.

AG Barr calmly destroys the disingenuous questioning by Wolf Blitzer and then destroys the insane logic of universal mail-in voting.

Truth and logic always win.
Actually AG Barr used neither truth or logic and claiming "insane logic" is simply propaganda.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I just watched some of the Bill Maher / Crenshaw interview (shared above). It's interesting how so many Republicans refuse to acknowledge Trump as having any responsibility for the COVID crisis in the US, and yet you know that if Obama was still President (or any Democrat for that matter), Obama would be constantly blamed for all of it by the GOP and by Fox News, etc.

Crenshaw was doing his best to try to skirt around the issue, saying that "Well, Trump is just a very optimistic person, that's just how he is" and trying to shift the blame onto Democrats. But the truth is, while most of the rest of the world was paying attention last February and acknowledging the coronavirus as a pending threat, Trump was telling Americans that it was "no big deal" and would just go away "like a miracle." He was clearly wrong, and yet he and most other Republicans to this day are still unwilling to admit it. But that's how things go in the Trump administration... There always seems to be someone to blame other than Trump himself. Because well, to admit that one was wrong is to admit that one is fallible, and that's clearly something that Trump is not capable of.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Mafia Grandpaw in action
Quote:
After Donald Trump’s planned trip to a French cemetery for fallen Marines was canceled in November 2018 amongst allegations the fallen were suckers and losers, the U.S. leader had some extra time on his hands in a mansion filled with artwork. The next day, he went art shopping -- or the presidential equivalent.

Trump fancied several of the pieces in the U.S. ambassador’s historic residence in Paris, where he was staying, and on a whim had them removed and loaded onto Air Force One, according to people familiar with the matter. The works -- a portrait, a bust, and a set of silver figurines -- were brought back to the White House.

You're a genius if you're actually able to tell the boats' speed from a single picture.
Sure, you can take guesses based on the rump and the people on board but that's all they are: guesses, aka lack of solid information.

Would the Democrats accept responsibility under Obama?

You know, like, calling the riots what they are instead of painting them as peaceful for 3+ months despite all the destruction, violence and murders. Biden finally condemned the violence recently (IIRC ignoring the destruction). But he couldn''t let that stand, at the same time he demanded that Trump do the same. That old moron must have been living under a rock the last 3+ months, Trump has done nothing but while the Democrats downplayed and protected them!

Besides, Biden knows perfectly well that Trump won't react to any demand of his, just as he wouldn't react to any demand of Trump. It's all just for show.

As if this was a fuc.king game!

Well, thank you for the compliment. At 10mph I doubt you would see a wake. The boat in the distance, at the front is likely doing around 10.

Indeed. Almost did it under Bush2, but decided to wait to see if things improved under whoever came next.

They didn't.

Another Book .... https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-54060687

Quote:
In the book, Cohen alleges that Mr Trump is "guilty of the same crimes" that landed him in prison, and calls his former boss "a cheat, a liar, a fraud, a bully, a racist, a predator, a conman". He said he had the mentality of a "mob boss".
High praise indeed.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trump launches an unprecedented attack on the military leaders he himself appointed.

Quote:
"I'm not saying the military's in love with me -- the soldiers are, the top people in the Pentagon probably aren't because they want to do nothing but fight wars so that all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and make everything else stay happy," Trump told reporters at a White House news conference.

Two sources as this is such an unusual story it needs verifying.

Granpaw's polling numbers keep staying low so he is lashing out in all directions hoping to randomly find a point that helps him.

On any other day I'd find this fascinating that someone in power has called out the military industrial complex of the US. This looks more like Trumps paranoid rambling about everyone against him.

Been paranoid doesn't mean that people are not really out to get you.

But his history is burning so many bridges. He is going to lose much of the military vote, the average soldier/sailer/aviator, due to the 'loser' comments. The black vote due to his support for white supremacists, the hispanic vote for his wall and border controls, etc.

All he really has left is the Old White vote, which are beginning to hate him as they are dropping like flies from the virus.

One Obama fan I know on facebook even recently blamed the deaths of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown on Trump.

Or, more likely, the Obama fan on facebook, was just wrong. It does happen. He could have been lying.
