I will give Trump credit for pulling his aides back from the brink of war with Iran (though he was they guy who brought in these idiots.  Like he didn't know who Bolton is...) and trust that it isn't only a matter of timing, as in not close enough to elections.

I'll also hope that reports that Trump's ultimate goal of repackaging a "renegotiated" Iran deal as "New and Improved!" and taking credit for it are true.  That was a good deal, for the US, Iran, the world.  We should be keeping it, one way or another.

Or how to make a hellscape out of Idaho, republican style.

A hellscape for Idahoans but an absolutely heavenly playland for industry lobbyists.

No use.  Anything I bring up through research ... not my knowledge of the subject - you will refute.

Aww.  So unfair.

Try posting more links to Far Right Racist twitter.  That will be sure to convince us.

Re:  "Republican screw ups"

Well... we got the important one right in 2016.

McCain couldnt get it done.  Mitt (who should have been nominated in '08) fell short in '12.

Got it right this time.  Nominated a guy/gal who could win.

Let's see if you guys can match.

No, Kiiid, you got it wrong.

This is what I mean about being unable to admit mistakes.

You will burn for your sins. Unfortunately, so will the rest of us.

I happen to think this presidency is going just fine.

You don't - because you think he is a loud mouth prick.

Open your mind to the state of the nation.

No, Kiiid, open your mind to what I am saying.

He is a loud mouthed prick. It's not why I think this presidency is going poorly. I thought Bill Clinton was a loud mouthed prick, too, if more cogent.

I think the refusal of this president to address Russian interference with our elections is terrible.

I think the failure of this president to even begin to the address global warming is criminal.

I think the active efforts of this president to unravel environmental protections is unconscionable.

I think the decisions of this president to undo decades of civil rights protections is evil.

I think the embrace of dictators and "strong men" leaders by this president is irresponsible.

I think the repeated undermining of our intelligence services, the FBI, and the news sources are revolting, uncalled for, and destructive of this country.

I think the verbiage and actions of this president that are tantamount to endorsement of white nationalism are hateful and incite violence against minorities, including (but not restricted to) Muslims and Jews.



Is that clear and specific enough for you, Kiiid?

Can you hear me now?!

To paraphrase you, "Open your mind to the state of the country and the world."

I respect the effort.  And could add considerably to your list.  But the fact is, we post substantive critiques of this "President" on this forum every day.  kiidcarter8, because he likes the racism, the homophobia, and the anti-abortion judges, has decided that those critiques have no merit.  Not because he can disqualify them with facts.  Just because.

And I have no issue, for the record, with Presidents being loud-mouthed pricks if they can back it up (ie. Teddy Roosevelt) when their words are ones of conviction, and when people address them with respect because they come from a person they respect.

Trump's loud words are hot air and lies, which not only our international opponents but even his own people ignore.  As David Frum wrote recently on NK:

North Korea has resumed missile testing, disregarding both Trump’s wooing and his threats of “fire and fury.” It has taken the U.S. president’s measure—and found him weak and empty.

Participants at a meeting between Republican senators and White House senior advisers Jared Kushner and Stephen Miller found the President's advisers' proposal to revamp the US legal immigration system to be lacking in substance, according to a senior GOP official familiar with the presentation.

Lacking in substance?  Maybe Kushner really is the leader of the GOP.

Here is Putin, who Trump's Attorney General lawyer claims is out to get him, endorsing his own view that the Mueller Report proved no collusion.

Meanwhile, The Trump Administration is building a case for war with Iran based on falsehoods in order to distract from their own incompetence and corruption (is this going to be a thing that every Republican Administration has to do now?) the Attorney General is fully gearing up to abuse his office for Trump's political gain, and its been confirmed that the planets carbon dioxide levels are higher now than at any point in human history...so there are other things we should be talking about.

We are at war already



Wait....we're not?  But i thought Trump - if elected - would have us at war with North Korea.  No, Russia.  No, it was China.

Saying Trump hasn't yet gotten us into a major war is not the most compelling endorsement of a 2020 candidate I've heard.

I havent endorsed anyone

LOL.

More that kiidcarter8 thinks he can toot his horn that concerns that Trump was erratic and susceptible to Right Wing-nut arguments for war have been proven unjustified even as his administration is now seeking any pretext it can find to justify armed conflict with Iran.

Intelligence and military officials in Europe as well as in the United States said that over the past year, most aggressive moves have originated not in Tehran, but in Washington — where John R. Bolton, the national security adviser, has prodded President Trump into backing Iran into a corner.

One American official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss confidential internal planning, said the new intelligence of an increased Iranian threat was “small stuff” and did not merit the military planning being driven by Mr. Bolton. The official also said the ultimate goal of the yearlong economic sanctions campaign by the Trump administration was to draw Iran into an armed conflict with the United States.

I think she misspoke.

I have no opinion on the Republican response.  She opened the door to critique.  Seems fair game in this current political world.

When Kid eats crow, he always leaves a trail of guts and feathers from his weak chin all the way down the front of his shirt.

Followed by a West Wing reference that he somehow thinks has some relevance to the real world.

But he did provide a link!

I always tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust and the tragedy of the Holocaust in the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways had been wiped out, and some people’s passports — I mean, just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right?, in many ways. But they did it in a way that took their human dignity away, right, and it was forced on them.



Sounds proud to me.

Question for you kiidcarter8:

Do you think the honorable Representative from Michigan was saying that thoughts of the Holocaust calm her?

No

Great. So naturally you think the Republicans, including Trump, who have misrepresented her words in order to paint her as Anti-Semitic should apologize.
