2016 Presidential Campaign

Recommended Posts

I'm still OK with paying 2-4% more in taxes so I can have single payer healthcare and public college education. Time to get with the rest of the entire modern world

During the 51st Republican town hall Tuesday, CNN's Anderson Cooper pressed GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump on a spat with rival Ted Cruz centered on the two men's wives. The CNN correspondent cornered Trump at one point and said he argues like a 5-year-old.

(Note: There's a 99 percent chance there have been fewer than 50 town halls before this, but can anyone really keep track of these things anymore?)

It all started when an anti-Trump super PAC used a nude photo of the (maybe) billionaire's wife, Melania, in an attack ad meant to appeal to Utah's Mormon voters. Trump fired at Cruz on Twitter — GOP frontrunner suggested that he had dirt on the Texas senator's wife. Cruz shot back and told Trump that he wasn't behind the ad.

Of course, as Trump is wont to do, he ignored Cruz entirely and launched into a campaign comparing the two potential first ladies, which brings us to Cooper's line of questioning on Tuesday.

"C'mon," Cooper said as he pressed Trump about the feud. "You're running for president of the United States."

To which Trump says: "Excuse me — I didn't start it."

And in comes Cooper with a line that's lit the internet on fire.

"Sir, with all due respect, that's the argument of a 5-year old," he said.

Who would vote for a POTUS that argue like a toddler.  Wait, another adult toddler?

I know somebody gave you that entire coherent thought because the English was excellent. Trump train. Woooooot. Woooooot.

Actually, Trump started it, but not against Cruz.  He tweeted out a comment last summer about Jeb Bush's wife and why he likes illegal immigrants.  

 

 

Now that was a reach. Lol

You'll pay a hell of a lot more than that in order to get those benefits Kevin.  In Denmark it's close to 60% and that's on the low end if we're adding marginal to all of the VAT and other taxes.  And if you want to buy a car expect to pay double thanks to taxes.

Never mind.

I had the same thought and started typing last night and then deleted it and went on with my evening.

Kevin, you remind me of the Oklahoma University cheerleading squad with 4 minutes to go in the semi-final game against Villanova after Jordan Woodard (OU) made a trey to make the score 47-86. Excited about futility. :wink:

What we learned last night is that Trump's hatred of women is catching up with him.  Interesting read on how he has Roger Ailes by the short hairs though:

interestingly enough, all of the polls coming into WI showed Sanders winning by about 5 points. He won by 13 points.

 

I still firmly believe that Clinton's support will fade with Bernie's rising, especially given that someone in her campaign is linked to the Panama fiasco. Bernie was a huge opponent to the whole thing whereas Hillary supported it. I just don't understand how people can, in a good conscience, vote for Hillary. She is showing that she will say anything to get votes whereas Bernie has literally been saying and doing the same things for years. Hillary can be bought, Bernie cannot

Blind people will vote for Hillary for trump. They doesn't care or acknowledge the truth. Bernie still behind Clinton about 200 delegates so unless he start wining at least 60% the rest of the way, Clinton will win the nomination

Trump's achilles heel? Lack of organization on the ground:

Given the increasing probability he won't get to 1,237 during the Primaries he sure isn't working the angles the way you would expect a good negotiator to do. Maybe he needs to tag in Captain Kirk:

Alain I am legitimately surprised that you're supporting Ted (unless you just voted for him to beat Trump?)

 

you're a relatively progressive guy, Cruz ain't all that progressive :glare:
