Exactly, and now it's up to 2 senators, with a few more yet to say anything about DJT. Unified?? Really?
Yep. Unified - except for at least one Republican senator, 3 Republican governors or ex-governors, a bunch of Republican representatives, and a list of conservative radio commentators and hosts. And just about every evangelical conservative in the country.
And that will have any effect, compared with what happens when the Dems (and Repubs who don't like him) start hammering on Trump?
Yep. you've got to look at all the polls! Including the right wing slanted polls that all said that Romney would and had won the 2012 election.
I agree with much of what you say, Uncle. Europe now has a about a 35 hour work week, and 4 or 5 week vacations for everyone. Japan has different problems: No immigration, and a less than replacement birthrate. The Japanese problems are ones that we are beginning to see here. Our US birthrate is already less than a replacement rate, at 1.88 children per American woman.. Like Japan we, too, are now seeing fewer workers supporting a growing number of retirees. Unless we make some changes, we will be in exactly the same situation as Japan.
If "the gutless Republican wonders had worried more about American jobs", they would have outlawed computers, robots, and the internet years ago. Almost no one paints a fender, or tightens a bolt on an assembly line anymore. Very few sell books or work as a travel agent, telephone operator, or secretary anymore. All because of computers, robots, and the internet. That's tens of millions of jobs lost over the past 2 or 3 decades.
The conservative's conservative, George Will, has written that true conservatives must now make sure that Trump loses all 50 states in order to wash Trumpisms out of the conservative Republican party.
"In 2016, a Trump nomination would not just mean another Democratic presidency. It would also mean the loss of what Taft and then Goldwater made possible — a conservative party as a constant presence in U.S. politics. "
"One hundred and four years of history is in the balance. If Trump is the Republican nominee in 2016, there might not be a conservative party in 2020"
"in some respects" - but only when we consider the national debt, international relations, war & peace, jobs, and the economy.
It will be a very strange campaign this year (already has been, actually...). If Trump an d Clinton end up being the nominated R and D candidates, Hillary Clinton will be the most conservative of the two. Will Republicans vote for the conservative candidate, or for Trump? Will Democrats vote for the liberal candidate, or for Clinton?
And Trump's guy spoke to the RNC in Florida this week to tell them that what Trump has been saying at his campaign stops is all an act to keep himself in the news, and that he will let us all know what he really stands for after he is nominated. I suspect that many, including Roler, may be a bit surprised by the turn of events..
Exactly how we all learn what is true and what is not - and easy to do, too. simply assume what Springer believes is true!
Why didn't we think of that solution sooner!!
Be careful. don't forget that you are talking about many people for whom facts don't matter, and the only thing that matters is what they happen to believe.
So what you going to do? Force companies and the government to hire millions of people to stand outside restrooms and require everyone to pull down their pants, or lift their skirt, before they enter?
Hint: There's already a perfect solution that has been working just fine in every airport I've visited recently, and in nearly every restaurant and other public place that I've entered, nationwide.
Wait? So now you are defending Obama, you are saying that he did not increase the national debt as much as I said he did? Springer, your logic is getting harder and harder to follow!
So, Springer, do you actually let little children in the bathrooms in your house, the same rooms used by adult men (as Ted Cruz said)?
Quite a pirouette, springer.
So, the recent presidents you most approve of are LBJ, Nixon, Carter, and Clinton, who all reduced the national debt as a percent of the GDP, an dour ability to pay it off. And you must absolutely hate the guys who increased the debt, many by huge amounts, Reagan, Bush 41, Bush 43, and Obama.
Pirouettes must be getting harder to do now at your age!! ;)
That may be a little too simple, Uncle! It's not just that the has been no armageddon over the past 7 years. What has actually happened is that the armadeddon that was in progress when he took office has been reversed, with many of the changes that you list. The armageddon that he was given has been overcome. There is still a lot more to do, but we are now well out of armageddon territory, and well into advance and continue the progress territory.
Yes, it looks like a Hillary/Trump race is what we will see. Clearly if the race ends up being Hillary against Donald, the most conservative candidate will be Hillary. It'll make for a very weird election!! Will Republicans vote for the liberal Trump? Will Democrats vote for the conservative Hillary? We may find out...
