    More Bad News for Donald Trump

    "Since you are convinced that Hillary will win, and are probably correct, does she have a platform for stemming the gowth of the deficit? Does she even think it's a problem?"

    People have said, and some still do, that Social Security is the third rail of politics. Not anymore - it's the debt. Nobody wants to touch it because, as they have correctly surmised, the American people don't care.

    Bad tasting medicine will have to be taken and there is no political "leader", Republican or Democrat, prepared to prescribe it.

    "I totally and absolutely agree."

    With whom do you agree? About what? There are already 32 replies here, do you agree with everybody?

    "I hate Hillary too. I kind of even like Trump. But he's a buffoon and, well, I think we deserve better."

    I don't know if we deserve better or not, but I won't argue the point. While I understand that many, myself included, would like a realistic alternative to these two, the plain truth is that one of them is going to be our next president.

    If Hillary does win, four years from now we'll have the most liberal Supreme Court in history. I can only hope the Congress remains Republican and the legislative side of her agenda will be blocked.

    "9 thumbs down?"

    Sorry, Mr. Day, I was remiss! Make it 10!

    Look, there are only two choices here. "I hate Hillary" is a perfectly rational reason to vote for Trump.

    As is the reverse, for that matter.

    Wow, you think this "brexecution" is quite clever, eh? How many boards did you post this on?

    Proving once again that lunatics have lots of energy.

    Gee, Lar, do you think you might be taking this a bit out of context?

    Manafort was responding to a question about campaign organization. Manafort said that he and the RNC are working together and have organized both nationally and within the states. So, clearly the meaning was that "Trump doesn't have to figure out what's going on" (with the campaign organization) "to say what he's going to do."

    But, you already knew that, did you not?

  • by leaving the Republican party. I'm guessing that losing this blowhard will only help.

    I'm operating under the assumption that this is a short term, general market overreaction. So, rather than trying to figure out which stocks might bounce back first, I took the lazy way out and bought some VTI.

    Hopefully this is not the beginning of a bigger, long lasting downturn. But, if it is I've still got some cash reserves to invest.

    "How many law degrees do the Obama's have between them?"

    That's your best example of Barack Obama's presidential qualifications? That he and his wife have law degrees? Does this mean that every ambulance chasing lawyer in the country is qualified to be president?

    I don't even much like the guy and I could have come up with better than that!

    "Seems you overlooked this link from that article, just search: "donald-trumps-4-biggest-failures".
    I'm sure it was unintentional."

    It was neither intentional or unintentional. I know these threads get hard to follow sometimes, but the topic is "5 Greatest Successes."

    Had there been a link for his "5 Worst Haircuts" or his "5 Hottest Girlfriends" I would have overlooked those as well.

    Great looking car, but 71 grand? I think I'll hang on to my STS a while longer. Based on past history, I'll probably be able to get one in three years for maybe 25.

    "Please list them here instead of asking folks to go to Motley Fool. Should be an easy cut and paste..."

    Well, I'd like to, especially since you did say "please" (sorry, been spending a lot of time with the grandkids lately), but there's an explanation of each of the five and it's too long to cut & paste. I suppose I could separately cut & paste each header, but that's just too much work.

    Just search "Donald Trump's 5 Biggest Successes", it'll be the first result.

    Wait a minute, I'm confused.

    Is this a joke or a true story? Who's Donald and where did he come from? Is he like Cain's wife?

    Don't make no kinda sense.

    "Jeye, you need to get new internet friends."

    The Valerie Jarrett stuff is nonsense too.

    In fairness to Jeye, we should probably concede that Imam Mohamed Magid, of the Islamic Society of North America IS, in fact, a Muslim. So, he's not 100% wrong.

    "OK, Trump supporters, you're next."

    Well, I'm voting for him so I guess that makes me a supporter - if a less than enthusiastic one. Read "Donald Trump's 5 Biggest Successes" on Motley Fool.

    According to Greatday, Hillary's best (only?) accomplishment is winning the Democratic nomination. For Trump, winning the Republican nomination is number 5. I would contend that Trump winning his race is far more impressive than Hillary winning hers.

    "I usually thought your posts were very sensible, but when you started on politics it's like arrgh!"

    Sorry you feel that way, I obviously think my position is very sensible.

    One of these two, barring an indictment, is going to be the next President. I know what Hillary is going to do. I don't like it. I think that there is a very real chance, with a Republican Congress, that Trump can do some good.

    "I answered that question several days ago."

    Oh, man, I should have kept reading.

    Geez, Mr. Day, I think maybe you were right in not answering.

    Her greatest accomplishment is that she was able to successfully con a block of idiots to vote for her? Holy cow! Donald Trump was able to do that!

    Oh, I get it. You're just kidding around, aren't you? You're such a good kidder!

    Now, for real, what are her accomplishments that so impress you?

    "I answered a question from Jeye earlier this week."

    Ahh, I see! You only answer one question a week. OK, put Wngr down for next week, will ya?

    "Rather than attempting to bait me with such questions - YOU tell me what Donald Trump's accomplishments might be. Because, frankly speaking that's vastly more important - as he has NO accomplishments to list."

    Baiting you? By asking you to list some accomplishments of the candidate for President of the United States of America that you so ardently support? One would think you'd jump at the opportunity! Unless, of course, YOU CAN'T THINK OF ANY!

    Sorry, I shouldn't yell. We'll just wait 'til next week then.

    Dunno. Move to the UK?

    You gonna answer Wngr's question? Surely you can list a few of Hillary's accomplishments, can't you?

    "Anyone that is a great supporter of either candidate should be able to make this list as fast as he/she can type."

    Absolutely.

    For me, this is a race between a known and an unknown. I feel pretty confident that I know what Hillary will do (and won't do) and I want no part of it. My hope is that, if Trump is elected, a Republican Congress will send some decent bills up for him to sign. As I've said before, I don't think he's as crazy as he sometimes (frequently?) sounds. Hopefully, he'll surround himself with good people.
