Comments on: Why America could (probably) survive a President Trump http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2016/03/09/why-america-could-probably-survive-a-president-trump/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Solidar http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2016/03/09/why-america-could-probably-survive-a-president-trump/#comment-1129110 Tue, 15 Mar 2016 16:26:19 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=46875#comment-1129110 Trump can not handle criticism. He gets too butt-hurt. He is a thin-skinned weenie, unfit for national leadership. If you think people taunt him now…. just wait. It’s too entertaining to watch him cry and get all puffy and pink.

I don’t support him, but the media has everything to blame for his rise. Now you guys are trying to blame him for the violence at his rallies? It’s sadly ironic that people holding signs saying “Trump = Hate” act themselves with utter hate!
Our nation is barely hanging on economically. We don’t look too bad because most other nations are already socialist or communist and fighting to survive. And what are we doing? Trying our hardest to be like them! Obama has made the greatest “strides” in regulation and government control of every facet of our lives. Unfortunately, any candidate that truly could have restored our nation to one of individual responsibility, smaller government, entrepreneurship, and prosperity doesn’t receive the time of day. So, as a nation, we’re getting exactly what we deserve!

And, just like the current incumbent of the White House, would probably leave largely frustrated by what he had failed to do.”

Having had a negotiator on my staff in a previous job, I can attest that Trump will never be able to conclude useful business because he will negotiate far past the sale, in order to keep the negotiations going and appear useful. Negotiators are almost junkies in my experience.

Really? Have you ever heard of a little thing called 9/11 under Bush? Nice try.

Maybe you like recessions, crashing markets, sky high gas prices, unnecessary wars, and your neighbors losing their homes, if so, vote republican because that’s what they’re good for. Get a clue.

Trump does not stand a chance in the general election.

Incorrect. They laughed at Bush wasting 3 trillion taxpayer dollars and 4,000 U.S. service lives…. to build democracy in Iraq. How did that work out?

You seem to forget Putin’s invasion of Georgia during Bush’s presidency (April 2008).

“We’ve lost all credibility in the eyes of the world the last 8 years.”
Your “world” seems to include Putin and no one else. You aren’t one of his notorious paid minions are you?

Or from 2008 to the present. At least with the preceding President, the world didn’t laugh in our face. We’ve lost all credibility in the eyes of the world the last 8 years. Would Putin attempted an invasion of Ukraine/Crimea under any president prior to Obama? Very doubtful, except maybe Carter.

I only clicked to see how bad the click bait would be relative to the trite title. Title says nothing about what the article will be about, and article is all fluff, so my predictions were confirmed.
