Trump,how did he become the standard bearer of the GOP? I have been following American politics for 40 years from my home in Canada.My Mother was the one who followed it from the McGlauglin group and Washinton week.I started to find it captivating for the drama and comedy,it had both.I stopped laughing on 9-11.What came afterword changed our world for ever,in ways we won’t fully put into context for decades.GWB changed the course of history in a series of policy decisions that changed the balance of power in the middle east,to benifit America’s biggest foe,Iran.Now they want to blame Barack Obama for the whole mess because he honored a deal made my Dick,oops,I mean George,on the status of force agreement.They don’t bring that part up.And the R’s want us to believe that despite Donald Trump’s racist views(aired daily) can handle these tough problems by force of will.If only he would stop those darn petty attacks! I could go on,Thoughts guys and girl

Beatlex – Really appreciate your thoughts posted above, about your introduction to US politics, your fascination and how it’s turned to disappointment…mirroring that of most Americans. Watching the Repubs try (and fail) to blame Obama for all of their Presidents’ mistakes is annoying but unsurprising. I must say that it is surprising though that they have disintegrated into the dregs of a party by Trump being able to win their nomination and now be the head of the GOP. They had to hit rock bottom to ever have a prayer of being a via ble party again but they’ve c rashed right through rock bottom!

PPO – The Red States have no idea what deep shite they are sinking into with Trump as the figurehead of their party. Many of them may be panicking now because of Trump’s racist attacks on the judge but come on, he’s been spewing racism since the day he announced his run. They’re just fine with having racists as leaders as long as they’re not too obvious about being racist.
AdLib 7 days ago
Right enough, Ad. Looking forward to the carnage when these nongs lose in the GE. Of course, it will be Obama’s fault, but they can’t make that one last long after year’s end.

PPO – I’ve called this from the beginning, if Trump won the Repubs will lose big. He was never genuinely attacked in the primary and the MSM propped him up, never calling him on his lies and con man ways. Now…when people really have to consider making him one of the most powerful men in the world? Now, he’ll be really examined and in that hot spotlight, a piece of “muck” like him will melt.

Can’t wait, Ad! Imagine the panic at Romney’s little retreat. their heads must be exploding already.

They’re trying to draft Romney as a 3rd party indie? How crazy and hilarious would that be?

Trump,Trump! Trump? He is incapable of changing his message,He IS what he is.A self promoting buffoon.All he has is juvenile retorts”Crooked Hillary” “Pocahontas” blah blah.Can’t he at least get a sentence constuctor? LOL

Good evening all. Ad, I think the recipe must be at least 47% Valium. They’re going to need it!

Beatlex – I’m imagining that Trump is bursting blood vessels having to hold back from “counterpunching” against Hillary, Bernie, Elizabeth, Joe and Obama who have all been hammering him this week. SO funny, his handlers are trying to keep him from blowing up!

Well, another opportunity to clobber Don the Con is here! Actually, the meeting at Romney’s pile is well named – a RETREAT!

Beatle and PPO….Trump is both a creator and a creation. He has created a movement that is made for a narcissist because it attracts narcissists….those who believe they are the world and all that counts. And he was created by a cynical GOP strategy that want to make supply economics, neocon foreign policy, fundamentalist social policy and a corporate based oligarchy acceptable, and indeed embraced by the base….thus was born the Tea Party movement and mindset….which in turn created the likes of Palin….and Trump.

Beatlex–a thoughtful message at the beginning of VOX tonight. You hit the nail on the head; speaking of heads, mine is shaking lately at all of the antics of the repubs. “I think he is a racist” from Ryan; “He doesn’t know anything about the issues” from the turtle; yet both of them will vote for him. I don’t get it.
glenn

Murph – I don’t know that Trump’s followers are narcissists or they wouldn’t be such blind followers, they seem more like the fearful and ignorant who need to believe that the 1950’s can be brought back by force of will and repitition. They need a tyrant to force the badness in their lives to stop and as in history, blaming all those who aren’t the “pure” ones racially as the main threat, makes hating for them easy.

On Monday, Trump (with the RNC in the wings) will launch is full assault on the Clintons.

Medusa’s hair has nothing on the tangles the GOP is squirming through to try and justify – somehow – trumps existence right now.

Ad, what you describe is the underlying motives for these narcissists….their core position is that only they matter, only they count.

Murph – Yep, Trump looks like he’s about to blow a gasket, he wants to shout hatefully so badly. It’s funny!

Murph. yes, all th dirt like the YUUUUGE revelations about POTUS’ Birth Cert.! Oh, just discovered who Don the Con is noominating as VP – none other than Sheriff Joe Arpaio!

PPO–Rubio too. They are all so stupid. That’s the best word I can come up with. It’s pure stupidity to say you’re going to vote for an ignorant racist whom you wouldn’t trust with the nuclear codes. Yet, you’re going to vote to make him in charge of the nuclear codes.

Elizabeth Warren is destroying Trump! His response is the “Pocahontas” meam.He can’t form a cogent resopse

PPO…I think he will focus on insider business deals, favor trading, and the globalist Clinton Foundation with a bit of Benghazi, and the E mail server tossed in.

glenn – I think we can look back to this week as the real moment the GOP self-destructed. Trump winning was swirling the drain but once the estab Repubs endorsed Trump then watched his racism and fascist talk about the judge and said, “We oppose his racism but we support him to spread his racism as President,” The GOP deased to be a viable party.

That was awesome, Beatlex. Hope there will be more from her. She’s a great attack animal ( PC!)

When McConnell makes a public statement that their nominee really does not much about the issues and therefore needs a VP who does…he is laying it out there as escape clause if all else fails…….and as warning, a public warning, to Trump to get in line or lose big.
MurphTheSurf3

Ad–exactly. I just can’t wrap my mind around those contradictory statements.
glenn

Murph – But I’m thinking that Trump’s nasty playground bully style now will boomerang back on enforcing what a horrible person he is. It may hurt Hillary to a degree but I think it will cement him in as distasteful and unpresidential. What do you think?
AdLib 7 days ago
Murph, they can respond with trump Vodka, Trump Games, Trump Charity for vets, Trump U, and the litany of failed resorts with the Trump name used to con people out of their heard-earned.

Ad–I know you asked Murph this question, but someone needs to remind the gop that there is no “etch-a-sketch” and trump cannot now pivot to being “presidential.”
