Bush was so much more fun than Trump:

Hard to understand Trump's Iran strategy on sanctions
Quote:
The United States on Monday re-imposed sanctions against Iran's oil exports to punish Tehran for its involvement in several Middle Eastern conflicts.

Washington had been pushing governments to cut imports of Iranian oil to zero.
But, fearing a price spike, it granted Iran's biggest buyers - China, India, South Korea, Japan, Italy, Greece, Taiwan and Turkey - sanctions waivers.

That will allow the eight, which account for about 75 percent of all Iran's oil exports, to import at least some oil for another 180 days.
Source

So Trump seems to be destroying his own sanctions?

In response, Saudi Arabia will reduce oil supply next month in response to lower demand, and more cuts could follow next year. This is after SA recently increased oil output at Trump's request to fill the gap that would be caused by Iran sanctions.

Looks like Donald Trump will have a second term as president (not sure which emoticon to use):

The Florida Election should be called in favor of Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in that large numbers of new ballots showed up out of nowhere, and many ballots are missing or forged.
An honest vote count is no longer possible-ballots massively infected.
Must go with Election Night!

People forget that Hillary won the popular vote; she would not have to change much to improve her electoral college results. Not that I am a Hillary fan but facts is facts!
It is also clear from the mid terms that there ever more voters who are not Trump supporters

Khalid al-Falih’s comments sparked a recovery in the price of international benchmark Brent crude, which rose to $70.83 a barrel and is on course for its biggest increase in a month.

Hopefully, Saudi Arabia and OPEC will not be cutting oil production.
Oil prices should be much lower based on supply!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

After Donald Trump failed to make it to the American war cemetery at Belleau in France at the weekend, the US president has been gently mocked by the official Twitter account of the French army.

Using the hashtag #MondayMotivation, they posted a picture of a soldier training, with the caption: “Il y a de la pluie, mais c’est pas grave”, meaning “It is raining, but it’s not serious”.

Yeah, right, it's fact, everyone knows it, no need to keep repeating it. Fact is also she did not become president. Did Gore come back after "failing" in 2000?!
There is a time for everything. But not everything is actually meant to happen.

If she runs again all it proves is that it was good she wasn't elected last time.
<<‘She will not allow this humiliating loss at the hands of an amateur to end the story of her career’>> The next humiliating loss at her own hands will be more glorious then? ROFL, I'm also very much the DIY type but she got it wrong here.

Bush beat Gore due to the Florida Supreme Court stopping the recount in Florida (sound familiar?) and awarded Bush, nobody knows what the result of the recount would have been.

Anyway Gore did not try again in 2004, so far as I know no candidate who won the 'popular vote but lost the college ever tried again?

Nah. Only one I remember who tried again and won was Nixon, and we all know how that turned out.

I don’t think she’s the best choice, but neither do I think it’s a lot of hubris, or not any more than any male candidate, which would garner far less laughter.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

US stock market was rising nicely after the mid terms; investors like a split Parliament because this means there will be no major changes.
But today the Dow fell 600 points, so now below where it was on election day.

I thought after the mid terms were finished we would see some stability!

If you follow the link in this tweet from today it takes you to a newspaper story dated 2012 which states that when this claim was checked only 85 non citizens were found out of 12 million voters.

Trump on mid term elections
Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

Tremendous success tonight. Thank you to all!

5:14 AM - 7 Nov 2018
Although the final results are not yet in, the "success" looks like this

Dems flipped 37 House seats, 7 Governerships, 7 State legislative chambers, over 370 State legislative seats and despite not winning a Senate majority flipped Arizona for the first Dem Senator since 1988 and also flipped Nevada despite the incumbent Dean Heller embracing Trump.
