Comments on: Trump’s ready to deal, and a lot of uncompromising conservatives agree http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/08/24/trumps-ready-to-deal-and-a-lot-of-uncompromising-conservatives-agree/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Ralphooo http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/08/24/trumps-ready-to-deal-and-a-lot-of-uncompromising-conservatives-agree/#comment-1102876 Tue, 08 Sep 2015 03:19:44 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=42990#comment-1102876 Republican ideology is a bad joke that did not even exist as a meaningful force until around 1970. William F Buckley Jr. flirted with John Birchers and other relatively small sects of the right wing, and managed to synthesize a sort of compromise nastiness he called “conservatism.” Today the term has no specific meaning except a kind of cranky no-ism and hatred of “liberals” — another indefinable group. For Republicans to attack Trump for not being a conservative is sad and pathetic. Though not a Republican, I am glad Trump is shaking up the R party. If they ever put out a decent slate of candidate, I might just consider voting for one. But that has not happened in decades. Such a pity.

That would be a good thing.”

Yes. Outlaw large cups of soda, outlaw calories, outlaw fun. Good plan. Vote for Trump.

That would be a good thing. Perhaps an era of billionaire government chief executives has come.

Yes, the winning general of the biggest War in American History? He was as qualified as Ike or Roosevelt, and did a good job of keeping the dirty south in its post-war place. Consider Grant a comprise. We wanted President Sherman.

People can bash Trump because he doesn’t offer specifics but if you look at most politicians all they do is make promises to get votes knowing they cannot deliver. Hilary talking about forgiving student debt is nothing more than a ploy to get their votes. Personally I am intrigued by a guy who says “I’m not buying anyone’s vote. Here’s what I think and if you agree, then vote for me. If not, then get out of my face.” As for his ability to be President, we’ve certainly elected a number of people who were not qualified and we managed to muddle through. Does then name Grant ring a bell?

This is the guy whose companies filed for bankruptcy four times in the last 15 years. So much for the exaggerated claims of his “business skills”.

Just imagine him throwing personal insults at foreign leaders should be become President. Might as well just elect a petulant teenager who has a problem controlling his loud mouth.

Frontrunner. 16 GOP candidates and the top one (by double digits) is the guy who mexicans the most. Tells you something about that party.

He’s a blowhard, plain and simple.
