Murph – FYI, I didn’t realize we had a setting on Vox that didn’t allow guests to read along if they didn’t register and sign on. That’s fixed so you can spread the word to folks who just want to read along as guests that they can now.

Doesn’t Christie look like a big fat sellout?
AdLib 7 days ago
I will do that at Yabberz…this may explain why several said they had a hard time getting on.

Loved the video where the KKK supports Trump demonstrator got trump to revert to ’50s intimidation

Maybe Christie’s made a deal to endorse Trump if he gets a Presidential pardon!

Did everyone hear about trump’s newest idea? He’s going to do away with the first amendment so he can sue everyone in the media. I think he should take it one step further and ask Congress to overturn it now. After all, they aren’t doing anything else. Or better yet, he should ask President Obama to pass an executive order to overturn it. Then President Obama can take advantage of it now and sue Fox, Glenn Beck, etc. and it will be in place when trump becomes president and he can begin using it from “day one”. (NOT)

Christie had no political future along the usual routes so he is rolling the dice

So isn’t it pretty plain now that all you have to do is cut a commercial with the inspirational speeches of Lincoln, FDR, Kennedy and Obama…then cut in clips of Trump calling Cruz a “pussy”, calling everyone “Liar!” and calling Mexicans rapists and criminals…bye-bye Trump. I mean, how hard would it be for Dems to tag him as too much of an embarassment to be President?

Murph–I’m from the “liberal media” dontcha know?

glenn – I thought Trump was going to use Emminent Domain to take away all the news stations from their owners and just have them all broadcast pro-Trump propaganda if he became President.
AdLib 7 days ago
You know, just like his hero Putin?
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–hell, Dems to tag him as an embarassment? I think the repubs are doing a pretty good job of it already. I like your idea, though. I don’t think Hillary or Bernie should do it; the Democratic National Committee should be running those ads! Now!

those Trump rallies are starting to look very like Germany in the ’30s

Ad–that, too. That’s why businessmen should never run for office. They’re not used to people questioning them, or if people do question them, they just fire them. Can’t do that with the media, although that’s what trump wants to do.

Looking at the big picture, Trump will be decimated in a GE as strongly as he’s been elevated in the GOP primary by the MSM. Apparently, Dem research firms have been digging up lots of dirt on Trump and claim only a small fraction has even been out in the public yet. The Trump University fraud and illegal workers fine are just the small tip of the iceberg and it’s a yuuge iceberg!
AdLib 7 days ago
PPO–Aren’t they, though? Sure, let’s just punch people who don’t agree with us. Let’s just get rid of our “free” press and sue the hell out of them for repeating what you say. That’s the ticket!
glenn

Ad, better get that iceberg front and center so it doesn’t melt away.
pinkpantheroz

Ad–I don’t think any of those things will change the minds of the true trump supporters. Hopefully, those independents who are “on the fence” will jump over to the Dem side, or at least quit straddling!
glenn

PPO – It’s tooo yuuge to melt. Trump has a loong and slimy history as a greedy elitist. All his misdeads aren’t going anywhere, he will he flailing around helplessly in the GE.
AdLib 7 days ago
Here’s hoping, Ad. Could America as it is, sort of, today, be the same if that cretin got the nod? I don’t think so, Tim

PPO–it was interesting to watch the clips of marco ridiculing him. I didn’t watch the debate, but I did watch the clips of the meltdown. Trump was rattled whether or not he wants to admit it. So rattled that he sent out three tweets with the words misspelled!

glenn – Exactly, the Trump Drones have pledged their undying loyalty to Herr Trump but in a GE, indies and conservative Dems…AND moderate Repubs will be too alarmed to vote for anyone but the Dem nominee.
AdLib 7 days ago
Insiders with the Dems say the research on Trump has revealed a treasure trove of negative info that is an opposition research bonanza and that to date only about 1/5 of it has even been alluded to in the campaign.

I love that Lindsey Graham is kicking sand in Trump’s face.

PPO – Always keep in mind that even if Trump is winning 50% of the GOP, that’s only 14% of the voting public. Too much for a lunatic like him to get but way far away from anything resembling a majority in a GE. And Latinos, women, blacks and Muslims will be among the energized turnout to keep Trump out.
AdLib 7 days ago
PPO–Miss Lindsey was on a roll last night. The sad part though, is that most repubs will buckle down and accept trump as their nominee, if that’s what happens in the convention. The Dem candidate should just run all the clips of other repubs bashing trump and then ask, “Now they want you to vote for him?”
glenn

7 days ago
Murph – Yes, that’s the info I was talking about. If last night proved anything, it’s that Trump has a g;ass chin and falls easily when smacked with negative attacks. Not a goood trait foor someone building his whole appeal on being a strong man dictator type.
AdLib 7 days ago
Mussolini and Hitler did not handle critique well either…..
MurphTheSurf3

Ad–and there’s the rub. For seven years, we’ve heard all about President Obama acting like a dictator and taking away “freedom”; yet trump actually IS a dictator, and wants to destroy the Constitution, and nary a peep from his supporters!
glenn

glenn – They’ve been running clips today oof Christie dissing Trump as not equipped to be President aloingside his absolute endorsement of Trump. They all do look like such frauds and liars, it’s obvious to all but the core GOP Borg.
AdLib 7 days ago
Murph–No dictator handles criticism well. That’s why one of the first things they do is have the government take over or shut down the media.
glenn

Murph – Do you think Trump has a good chance of winning a GE?
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad…I do not UNLESS we are hit by a major terrorist attack
MurphTheSurf3

glenn – Because the racist RW attacks on Obama are always cloaked in some “higher principle” like standing up for the Constitution. When really, they embraced Putin and Trump, they crave authoritarianism. Saw a study that linked all the different types of voters supporting Trump, the one thing they had in common was being authoritarians and wanting that in a President.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad and Murph–with all of the negativity about trump by republicans, how are they going to align this current negativity with the “vote for the repub candidate” if trump becomes president? Talk about turning yourself into a pretzel to justify something!

Barney Frank ” Ted Cruz is universally considered one of the meanest sons of bitches who’s ever served in Congress”. Pity he’s no longer around

Ad–I get that authoritarian thing that the repubs have going. But…how come they’ve been screaming for seven years about what a dicator President Obama is? Does. Not. Compute. And, again, how are they going to promote trump as their candidate when for seven years all we’ve heard about is President Obama’s “abuse of power”?
glenn

Murph – I don’t know, look what happened to Ben Carson when the Paris and San Bernadino attacks happened. If it’s Trump vs. Clinton or Sanders, I think support will flood behind the Dem because they will be the only one with experience in government. Trump would seem like a bigger risk, as someone with no experience.
AdLib 7 days ago
correction….if trump becomes the nominee. Heaven help us all if he becomes president!
glenn

I’d propose that the public would floock to the more establishment candidate for security if there was an attack, not the inexperienced outsider.
