Re: “Danehy

But you need to remember that politics is a money business and these whiners have no money. Corporations do. And sometimes it benefits everybody. Sometimes it doesn't.

Re: “Danehy

*standing up and applauding Rick Spanier's post*

When I consider "what forces propel two presidents who could not be more different in style and demeanor from pursuing the same destructive objectives" -- all I come up with is "follow the money."

Who is being enriched? Who is being impoverished? Mainstream Democrats are bought and paid for by big corporations and untraceable campaign donations (dark money). Mainstream Republicans are bought and paid for by big corporations and untraceable campaign donations (dark money).

The whole system is corrupt, and us regular folks are suffering in so many ways.

Right Joel. Whatever that meant.
Try listening to AZ/DC. He'll show you how to disagree making intelligent points without being a moron. If that's possible.

Re: “Danehy

Obama was a good, not great, president. Given the nature of the disloyal opposition's obstructionism and thinly veiled contempt, he did a decent job and left office with higher approval ratings than Trump will ever enjoy. That said, I notice similarities in the policies of both these presidential polar opposites. If you (on both sides) can cast aside your selective outrage, consider:

Both Obama and Trump set out to deport millions of undocumented with the assurance "only the criminals will be targeted." Both lied, and to date Obama holds the records for deporting the most undocumented without criminal histories - a number in the high hundreds of thousands if not millions.

Both Obama and Trump administrations brokered arms deals to our enemy in Saudi Arabia to the tune of over $100 billion. Remember 9/11 and the Saudi export of virulent radical terrorist ideology through an expanding network of madrases.

Both the Obama and Trump administrations actively engaged in an assault on US public schools under the premise of school improvement with funding going largely to private sector leeches. Remember Arne Duncan? I do. Like Betsy DeVos? I don't.

So if we take a moment to set aside our partisan-based disgust with either the former or present president, it might be a good idea to begin considering what forces propel two presidents who could not be more different in style and demeanor from pursuing the same destructive objectives.

CW13, you have been quiet since you moved to Krupets from Dubna.
You will never get the much wanted Order of Lenin with silence. Your young man - servant David W. will be a shoo in for the Order of Disinformation.

Re: “Danehy

The existence of God has resurfaced as many people wonder how the Twitterer-in-Chief could visit the wall in Jerusalem without the All Mighty dropping it on him, or how he could visit the Vatican without being instantly struck down by lightening.

On a side note, did the "prayer" he slipped into the Wailing Wall whine about how he is the worst treated president ever?

"Donald Trump has looked like the world leader we have been waiting for."

Well, I wouldn't call you a racist as CW13 predicted. I will say that the last paragraph of your comment has to be the stupidest thing that I've read on this site in a while though. Quite the opposite of "Brilliant, simply brilliant!" in fact.

Re: “Danehy

Yeah that's what the ultra left does, and once again it wouldn't be true. But at this point, when confronted with facts, it is all they have.

Re: “Danehy

Is it possible that rather than attempting to judge "unspoken" thoughts, that you entertain the possibility that you are a flawed low information voter?

After 8 years of Obama one could list all the failures that were so ignored by you, because of his skin color. This thing cuts both ways. Why not adhere to MLK's "I have a dream" where you judge people on the content of their character?"

Here is a great place to start your rehab, from 2014.

By now, nearly five and a half years into the Obama presidency, objective people can draw reasonable conclusions, among which are these: Barack Obama was among the least prepared men to ever serve as presidency. It shows. He has been overmatched by events right from the start. He is an excellent campaigner but unusually inept when it comes to governing.

By temperament and experience, based on skill set and ability, Mr. Obama is much better equipped to be a community organizer than to be president of the United States.

For the sake of our nation and much of the world, I wish he had stayed on Chicagos South Side.

And then you must admit, this past week Donald Trump has looked like the world leader we have been waiting for. Brilliant, simply brilliant!

Don't count on it. However, I'll give Tom this much. Putney Swope was a great movie. One of the best satires ever. " How many syllables, Mario? How many syllables?"

Thanks for another liberal rant, maybe next time we can have a non political, tired, Trump bashing column.

Re: “Danehy

If they were it wouldn't match the hate and ignorance portrayed in the article. Is it not enough to realize Clinton is a flawed candidate? That's why they torpedoed Sanders.

Too bad Lent doesn't last longer.

Re: “Danehy

Unfreaking believable comments about the least important thing Danehy had to say... and yeah his point was made without the gratuitous reference to the orange haired buffoon as the sex offender in chief.

"I thought that there was a chance that she would stand up for her constituents, but when the House leaders decided that it was time to pass crap legislationany legislation, really--just so the heat would be shifted to the Senate, Martha McSally caved...."

McSally has the courage to fly a military fighter in harm' s way but lacks the fortitude to stand up to her colleagues and BLOTUS and vote for her constituents basic rights. She's a disgrace and will be a short-timer in the congress. She can look back to her vote in favor this piece of shit "legislation" while she's out job hunting in '18. Fooled me once...

Re: “Danehy

I didn't say there was no proof. I said Trump hadn't been convicted yet and that if he denies something, he's probably lying.

I gave you links to lawsuits and to numerous statements from women who don't know each other --including one of Trump's wives -- who all say the same thing about him. He assaults adult women and teenagers, sexually touches them without consent, and rapes violently. He is utterly untrustworthy and apparently has little sense of morality. He even has expressed sexual interest in his own daughter. I wouldn't choose to be alone with him, and I'd never let any woman or girl I cared about be put in a position where she's vulnerable to him.

As for the list of women you provided -- from the little I know, I believe them too. We should be able to hold more than one thought at a time. It is very possible that both Donald Trump and Bill Clinton do not respect women or marriage vows. But deflecting criticism about Trump by saying "other people do it too" is not helpful. If we want to have any credibility beyond partisan bs, we have to acknowledge when "their" side does it -- and when "our" side does it too.

(btw, I'm not a Democrat or a Republican, so neither of these sides is "my" side.)

Re: “Danehy

I have no children by choice ( I'll bet a lot of you are relieved to hear that !!) but yes I would. Thank you for taking the time to point out where you feel I'm in error. And without being a sarcastic idiot. You said there's no proof yet. but you believe those women. Fine, I believe these women.

I guess it works both ways. Does it mean Trump is innocent? Wasn't there. Don't know. Thanks again for disagreeing with me without all the insults.

Re: “Danehy

CW13 -- If you really want to know "how is Trump a sex offender?" you can read some of these articles. Do I need to supply you with the definitions of "sexual assault," "rape," and "nonconsensual groping"?

http://www.snopes.com/2016/06/23/donald-tr…

http://people.com/politics/every-sexual-as…

http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/featu…

http://time.com/4572925/megyn-kelly-donald…

You will probably argue that he hasn't been convicted (yet), and you will probably quote his denials. But since Trump lies almost every time he opens his mouth, and since there is no proof that any of these women lie, I believe the women. Would you trust him with your daughter?
