While my personal distaste for Trump is palpable, both are media wh*res.

Thank you President Barack Obama. I wish you could give us 8 more years.

Has anyone informed Obama and his magical executive orders are not what the voting populous want?

Not what people like you want, but he got re-elected, didn't he? Is Trump and his magical whatever what Republicans want? A lot of them seem distinctly cool about the idea of supporting him.

"Obama you're fired." Donald Trump, November 8, 2016

-15 ( +4 / -19 )

A lot of them seem distinctly cool about the idea of supporting him.

The drop outs are pissed cause they lost. Cruz must be reeling big time. The other republicans are prob just too pc too support him outright. Trumps got some work to do among those distant in the party.

This is not a reality show. This is a contest for the presidency of the United States,” he said.

Says a guy who does the wave at the ball game in Cuba while Brussels (the heart of Europe) was attacked. He should watch more "reality shows" yep- there such a thing -Radical Islam.

Speaking of reality, was obama being realistic when he got on his knees to blow Iran? While snubbing our only true ally (Isreal) & democracy in thhe ME.

That's funny since the Obama freak show started at least seven and-a-half years ago.

-23 ( +4 / -27 )

Obama is the last person to say that. The past 7 years was an entire bumbling laughable "Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus." Please November come! This guy is such a joke!

Hillary is a slam dunk in November's election. 1st a black president and now the first woman. Well done

The thing I struggle the most with is that the us will soon switch from a president of substance (Obama) to someone who may be more pragmatic (either hc or trump) but just doesnt talk nor think the same way we outsiders do.

I have the impression we have lost someone from the family with fairly similar values and who think you don't necessarily need to be the loudest to be right.

No question I would have voted for obama in 08 and 12. In 16? Def not Hillary.

On this I disagree with President Obama. I've come to the conclusion Trump's only purpose running for president is to create a reality show which will air in 2017. Seriously.

Isn't the term "reality show" oxymoronic (accent on the "moron")?

“Paul Ryan said that I inherited something very special, the Republican Party,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Wrong, I didn’t inherit it, I won it with millions of voters.” - article

Donald J. Trump, plantation owner of the Republican Party.

No American will stand for the idea that anyone inherits them or owns them.

This is the reality of the GOP/Tea. They don't own Americans and only a fool thinks they own the Republican Party. Trump proves again he is as stupid as the rest of the entitled class of millionaire bigots. Trump is no different. He just has more ignorant bigots.

Most Republicans are insulted by Trump thinking he owns them.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

It's as if Obama has nothing else to talk about but entertainment T.V. He does not realize that he is an utterly failed president and needs to be reminded that this is not BET for him to entertain us with his comments.

-9 ( +1 / -10 )

Trump chanted: "We have to take OUR country back!"

It isn't Trump's country or his racists.

Never Again.

Obama should have considered the world not being a game or show himself. He caused the great recession affecting the world, he started 8 wars, turned Iran into a nuclear power and cleared the way for his friends in Africa and the middle east to openly run a rape slave and labor slave industry. So no Obama,the world isn't a reality show, Obama and his,Democrats have destroyed the lives of real people.

-17 ( +2 / -19 )

That's funny since the Obama freak show started at least seven and-a-half years ago.

You mean economic prosperity, no stupid wars and the national debt rate reduced by nearly half? You ridiculously blind and deaf neocon types could not find reality if it hit you over the head. Next realty check however for you ditto heads, President Clinton or Sanders Nov. 8th and a Democratic Senate and perhaps House. Hatred and racism, saying no to everything is not a successful strategy in the real world. Perhaps at some point you will all grow up and put the big boy pants on.

"He ( Obama ) caused the great recession affecting the world, he started 8 wars, turned Iran into a nuclear power and cleared the way for his friends in Africa and the middle east to openly run a rape slave and labor slave industry."

My head started spinning and I found it hard to refocus after reading Obama caused the worldwide recession. Please explain this one before dealing with the other assertions.

5 ( +6 / -1 )

It's not a business deal, either. Seriously, the man is deranged - and I mean that in a clinical sense. (He is a year older than Clinton, and men tend to age faster.) For example, yesterday, there was this:

I’ve borrowed knowing that you can pay back with discounts. I’ve done very well with debt....Now we’re in a different situation with the country, but I would borrow knowing that if the economy crashed, you could make a deal. And if the economy was good it was good, so therefore, you can’t lose.

Ah, so the sovereign debt and good name of the United States of America - the linchpin of the entire global economy - would under Trump be roughly equivalent to Puerto Rico. There is no way to overemphasize how bad of an idea this is. Statements like this coming from a "normal" candidate of either party would immediately disqualify them as dangerously reckless or incurably clueless - or both - but from Trump, it is par for the course. Would any Trump supporters on this site care to explain, defend, or bat away this stunning display of stupidity and/or naivety?

It is truly astounding the ignorance or wilful lying of some posters here wrt to Obama, the guy has done GREAT for the US...........PERIOD!!

If the repubs hadn't been so anti-Obama & anti-US during his two terms he could have done a LOT more!

And I aint a yank.

Paul Manafort, a top Trump advisor, told MSNBC that Republicans will rally behind the businessman because he has strengthened the party by attracting new supporters

Manafort is clearly stupid beyond belief, strengthened the party...WTF, the only thing trump has done is bring the repubs, down, perhaps even destroy them, not good & I DONT LIKE repubs .......

I totally get why so many in the US despise politicians there, ALL ROUND, but to try to get trump elected.........well who knows how much damage this guy can cause, scary stuff for sure.

Here's hoping the majority of yanks have enough sense to make sure trumps crashes & burns.

Perhaps he can do one thing GOOD for the US & that's show ALL politicians that they had better start doing more for the PEOPLE & less for big biz & the filthy rich!!! Without getting elected of course!

"she’s going to be so bad on jobs that wages are going to go down for workers,”

"I would borrow knowing that if the economy crashed, you could make a deal. And if the economy was good it was good, so therefore, you can’t lose."

Just when you think the level of debate and the proud stupidity can't go any further, he outdoes himself. Truly disturbing. How much lower can it go by the time the election comes?

I saw the comments about the debt. The vast majority is owned by Americans, so just how much would he like to stiff us?

This one is too good to pass. Meghan McCain, daughter of failed presidential candidate John who unleashed upon us Sarah Palin, had this to say about Trump supporters:

I hope history remembers those who gave up their conservative principles for the cult of personality and celebrity. And those who didn't.

Hmm. Seeing as her father's VP choice - not only her, but her daughter as well - ended up earning big bucks as reality show performers, placing her father in the rubric she offered would be difficult. As this article notes, Palin may have been a prerequisite for Trump.

I didn't know 46 million people are food stamps amounts to economic prosperity and the war surging in Syria and Afghanistan is something to jump for joy.

You ridiculously blind and deaf neocon types could not find reality if it hit you over the head.

Maybe they realized that for the last 7 years they were sold a bottle of fictitious moonshine from looney libs and this Tyrant president that at least had his las WH dinner, enough taking advantage of the people.

Next realty check however for you ditto heads, President Clinton or Sanders Nov. 8th and a Democratic Senate and perhaps House.

For the most part, the House thankfully won't fall into the clutches of the Democrats, so now reason to panic. Even if the Dems were to take all three branches, they just can't help themselves with the spending and the same thing would happen as it did in 2010. Remember, math is not a strong suit for Democrats.

Hatred and racism, saying no to everything is not a successful strategy in the real world.

This president is the biggest joke since comedy was invented. Obama is the last one to talk about hatred, racism (especially) the GOP were right to at least in part, NOT go with the president on issues they know could be disastrous for the party as well as their own constituents.

Perhaps at some point you will all grow up and put the big boy pants on

I still really don't get why some Republicans are supporting Trump when they obviously don't. What is the need? You can even duck out the back door and say you aren't supporting anyone. You don't have to go after the guy if you don't want to.

Even if he wins, what have you lost? You can still say you stuck to your principals and people would understand. You don't have to stop being a Republican or vote for Clinton.

"Remember, math is not a strong suit for Democrats."

You keep posting this along with liberals are poor at mathematics. Where do you get this from? Can it be said that Republicans and conservatives are illiterate based on the likes of Bush? Can it be said that Republicans and conservatives are ignorant of Geography and pretty much everything else based on Palin? Can it be said that Republicans and conservatives are ignorant of science based on crackpot notions of a 6,000 year-old planet, women being unable to conceive through rape and the Big Bang being "a lie from the pit of hell"?

I wouldn't sink to silly generalizations by claiming this is all Republicans but these examples are pretty shocking.

I'm just wondering where this poor mathematics skills idea comes from. Do you have any similar examples?

6 ( +6 / -0 )

You keep posting this along with liberals are poor at mathematics. Where do you get this from?

Liberals have always been bad about math. Dunno, looking at the overall economy, people taking themselves out of the job market, baby boomers retiring, people still sitting on their money, spending down, low wage jobs and pay stagnant, No high paying skilled jobs around, 0.2 laughable GDP, businesses leaving the country to avoid paying 40% corporate tax rate (and rightfully so) businesses closing in many cities such as Seattle over the price increase of $15 driving businesses to lay off people or to completely shut their doors, Obamacare supposedly was to cut costs, but it's done quite the opposite, thousands of people can't even afford to pay their premiums and more and more hospitals are canceling their contracts because the system is a complete joke. So yes, Democrats are very bad when it comes to math.

Remember, math is not a strong suit for Democrats.

Remember that as you watch the embers of the "We can stop both Trump and Clinton by running a third-party candidate, thus preventing anyone from reaching the threshold of 270 electoral votes and throwing the election to the House of Representatives!" die down as those who so vocally enthuse about it now slowly realize that, mathematically, the gambit is such a non-starter that it would be sure to increase Clinton's victory margin. It's actually not so difficult: pluralities differ from majorities, and the former is all that's needed to claim a state's electorates. But then, math is not a strong suit for (desperate) Republicans.

Yesterday's number....over 96 million NOT participating in the job market. And we have a good president and good economy? Imagine if 40% would gain employment other than beeing store clerks or fast food. From liability to asset instantly.

What number is acceptable? 25m, 50m? Some don't need to work like housewives, most collect a federal check. Just imagine if instead of collecting a check they paid taxes to pay down the pending $20T debt. And some want 8 more years of that! The nation would go Greece like.

@Bass

Let's be honest here. You've been covering politics for 30 years and we can throw numbers at each other all day. Remember the last group of mathematical geniuses who told people Iraqi oil would pay for the war and then after seeing that piece of genius rocket round the u-bend with the surplus watched the economy drop off the cliff. Plenty of numbers to be thrown around here and it seems a little partisan of you to blame only one side for poor mathematics.

Incidentally, have you managed to find the names of the non-partisan historians who've reappraised the Bush presidency and concluded he wasn't the second-worst postwar president? I still can't find them.

Ok, that's one, so what's the excuse of the Democrats inability to do math and guide the country into an economic quagmire over the last 7 years?

the gambit is such a non-starter that it would be sure to increase Clinton's victory margin. It's actually not so difficult: pluralities differ from majorities, and the former is all that's needed to claim a state's electorates. But then, math is not a strong suit for (desperate) Republicans.

Nice try, but sadly, conservatives don't have the math problem, theoretically, more like they are banking on higher voter turnout, but we don't know how Hillary will fair in her next FBI interview. Either way, it'll be a close one, unlike liberals, the election can go either way, the GOP thought they could destroy and silence Trump, they had the money, the numbers, clout and it all failed. Again, as in 2010 and 2014 be careful what you wish for.

Not at all, because Bush is not on trial and is NOT president, nor is he relevant, but Obama is (soon to be gone, thankfully) and Trump And Hillary are the next candidates battling it out, that's relevant. That's not partisan, that's staying and keeping on topic and current.

Obama should of been more of leader instead of acting like a cabinet member. I like him in his first term, but he came across as a push over latter, and putin and others took full advantage. I also think his china pivot to asia move was a mistake. Obama is responsible for the Trumps etc filling the vaccum. He also tried to hard to get all his socialist ideals passed, but it was too fast and upset allot of institutions. The U.S. is not exactly a progressive country, no matter what people may say, and change takes time and acceptance. I find myself agreeing with progressive ideals, but understand that some things are best left up to the states. Now, all that he worked to do will most likely be erased if Trump gets in office, so I dont get the logic. Clinton made the same mistake, and was unable to field a candidate to replace him, (goofball gore was the wrong choice) so we ended up with GWB and all that followed.

You have a massive growing debt that cannot be repaid now (Federal Reserve Bank is private). Another 2-4 years and you will be bankrupt (unable to pay debt). If the interest rates go up you may be unable to pay debt. -What has the average American gotten for this money --little to nothing and most say it is worse than 8yrs ago.

Bill Clinton had a surplus at one time. =Zero debt.

Agreed. Especially the 'anti-US' attitude from the conservatives. Evidence of a divided nation. Evidence of politics that do not benefit the nation, but only interests of groups that wish to benefit themselves and ignore the nation, the people that make up the nation. Shame.

Another 2-4 years and you will be bankrupt (unable to pay debt). If the interest rates go up you may be unable to pay debt.

badsie, check out statistics on the American deficit vs GDP - really, the only statistic that matters - and you'll see that 2016 is projected to be slightly under the average runup since the 1970s. Remember that this figure includes servicing the debt, i.e., interest payments, which are fixed so will not change whatever happens to interest rates. Also note that interest rates on long-term T-bills have dropped so low that many are, in effect, paying the government to park their money. Finally, the United States cannot go bankrupt. The US issues debt in their own currency and, in a worse-case scenario, can simply create new currency to pay it off.

Again, deficits tend to rise under Republican presidents (as they did under Reagan and GWB) and fall under Democratic presidents (Clinton, Obama). Go ahead and thumb me down, Republican partisans - you've never been good at math.

I have to think about Obama's resume. As an career academic, Obama had no professional experience in the real world, he never punched a time clock, or was paid on commission. Those who earn law degrees from good schools, but who are not capable of actually practicing law usually become law teachers (following the old maxim, "those that can't do, teach"). Obama had no military experience, no economic experience, and no leadership experience before becoming a senator. During his two years as a senator, he didn't sponsor a single piece of legislation. Diplomatic experience? When Obama ran for president, he applied for his first US passport (the application is public record). Trump still has more stamps in his passport than Obama has.

When it comes to qualifications and experience, Obama is the last person to be criticizing anyone else. Obama is the least qualified and least experienced president in recent memory.

It is truly astounding the ignorance or wilful lying of some posters here wrt to Obama, the guy has done GREAT for the US...........PERIOD!!

Obama managed to get one-third of America on welfare. Is that GREAT?

Obama doubled the US debt, earning the distinction of deficit spending more than all of his predecessors combined, is that GREAT?

Obama has seen US labor workforce participation fall to 62%, the worst since the bad old Carter days, is that GREAT?

Obama has seen racial tension and divide increase during his presidency, opposite of what he promised, is that GREAT?

Obama (most of all) has managed the country so poorly that Trump has managed to get nominated to be a candidate for president, is that GREAT?

It is not Trump who has caused himself to become a viable candidate for president, Obama gets 100% credit for that. Isn't that GREAT?

Trump should. switch from name calling to learn to talk like the future Leader of GOoP. He lost to smear Cruz now that he picked up Elizabeth Warren as his new target of insult beside other GOP officials. ! Young people in Calif. are using Mexican flags to show they are against Hillary who had been working for helping any Hispanic cause since she became first lady. Calif primary is close now.

It's just your assertion that Dens are bad at mathematics.

Actually, No. it's a record of how the economy has been sluggishly flopping along at a pathetic rate. Sorry, but that's not going to fly with most economists.

From that I assumed you regard Republicans as superior.

When it comes to math, there is a reason why they control the purse, EVEN if they lose the Senate, they will still probably hold on to the purse.

I'm just trying to find evidence of that. Am I wrong in my assumption or can you point to evidence of this? Do you have 'current' evidence?

There you go and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

You might as well say that the Pentagon is a private military - they get the vast majority of their stuff from the private sector, after all, even if the Joint Chiefs of Staff are appointed by the president - as are the seven members of the Federal Reserve, except that they are limited to one 14-year term, whereas generals have it for life.

He’s trying, and honestly, he’s trying and I will tell you what, I honestly think he understands that building and unifying and growing the party is the only way we’re going to win. And I think he gets that.

The blueprnt for the GOP getting the White House back is right in front of you: appeal to a broader base to get the majority of the votes. Obama isn't stopping that, people like you are.

Hey! No one is saying that the GOP isn't a disaster, but that has nothing to do with what the people want or choose and that goes for either party. You guys can focus on the chaos all you want, that's irrelevant, what the people their interests are in the candidates.

Probably for people who weren't going to vote for her anyway. My guess is they will find nothing they can charge her with, or at worst a slap on the wrist. It's not like they are going to set a precedent that can be used against Bush, Rice, and Powell.

Nice one, but not even close. Hillary has done a bang up of a job all by her selfish self, has nothing to do with the previous admin. Heck, even lapdog Eric Holder tried so, so very hard to prosecute and bring charges on Bush, but in the end didn't see ANY wrongdoing or malice on their part. Hillary might get a slap and she might be indicted (hopefully) but we just don't know. I give her credit, slippery than an eel, the most dishonest and pathetic politician out there. But then, how can anyone trust a woman that would stand by her husband knowing all the deceitful things he did towards women, tells you a lot about the soul of this woman.

bass4funk: "You guys can focus on the chaos all you want, that's irrelevant, what the people their interests are in the candidates."

Yeah, it's "irrelevant" when the people you adore are involved, but hey, if it's a non-issue like Benghazi you have no problem focussing on what doesn't even qualify as chaos for more than three years, millions of dollars, and several failed panels and hours of grilling, because, hey, "what the people are interested in are the candidates", right? That's not even hypocrisy, bass, just plain stupidity, because I'm not the one saying the chaos has 'nothing to do with the candidates' while focusing SOLELY on unrelated events to suggest they have everything to do with the candidates. But, need more examples of how you undermine your own arguments?

"But then, how can anyone trust a woman that would stand by her husband knowing all the deceitful things he did towards women, tells you a lot about the soul of this woman."

Well done, bass.

Now the bush's, all upset because the loser jeb was so soundly crushed by Trump, is pouting and saying he won't vote for either Clinton or Trump. Hahahaha.... You must be pretty angry the Dems are in again in 2016, because even if the GOP shatters more than it has and runs a third party candidate, they can't clinch a win; the vote would be divided between Trump and that person, while Hilary will get all the Dems plus a bunch of GOP votes.

@Lizz: My friends explained she probably will not be arrested as she will have experienced attorney. As she said she will fully cooperate, FBI will issue subpoena. They think she will use fifth amendment to refuse answer. Reminded me one mafia who used fifth amendment almost one hundred times and not guilty. Then later a movie Casino was produced this guy played himself and bragged he was the one who killed another mafia into pool. Once judged not guilty, no more trial. So she will use experienced attorneys. They also remind me years ago, FBI used to skip you can remain silence... to Al Capone so IRS arrested Capone for bookkeeping error.

I don't care particularly if Hillary is arrested or not but if investigators can align the stories of Guccifer and Pagliano and there is evidence of her server being hacked that alone is going to make it nearly impossible for her not to be indicted. Whether facing Sanders or Trump politically she is cooked either way.

Yeah, it's "irrelevant" when the people you adore are involved, but hey, if it's a non-issue like Benghazi you have no problem focussing on what doesn't even qualify as chaos for more than three years, millions of dollars, and several failed panels and hours of grilling, because, hey, "what the people are interested in are the candidates", right?

It's like this, I don't know how old you are, but I know (not personally) Hillary Clinton for about 30 years and Hillary has a lot of baggage and lies and more controversies than any other politician that I have known except for Nixon. Given her lies, coverups, deceptions, lack of trust, deflections, flip flops, her being equally as partisan as the other nut job we have in office, you bet I don't feel bad with the money that was shelled out to investigate her, I support it 100%! Also, I wouldn't expect the average person to care about it, I am talking more about the seasoned and well read up voter.

That's not even hypocrisy, bass, just plain stupidity, because I'm not the one saying the chaos has 'nothing to do with the candidates' while focusing SOLELY on unrelated events to suggest they have everything to do with the candidates. But, need more examples of how you undermine your own arguments?

Now the bush's, all upset because the loser jeb was so soundly crushed by Trump, is pouting and saying he won't vote for either Clinton or Trump.

WT....seriously, No one is thinking about Bush, No one.

Hahahaha.... You must be pretty angry the Dems are in again in 2016, because even if the GOP shatters more than it has and runs a third party candidate, they can't clinch a win; the vote would be divided between Trump and that person, while Hilary will get all the Dems plus a bunch of GOP votes.

No, I'm not angry because unlike liberals that NEVER learn from the past that you should always be cautious before adventuring in the forest and getting bit by snakes. Given Hillary's political history since we do have something to go by, I would rather see Trump serve terms than have Hillary serve ONE! Hillary wouldn't get even 1% of Hillary votes, sure, some may sit it out instead of voting for Trump, but the GOP is not that desperate to sell their souls out and to vote for the pantsuits lady.

Ah, nice to see the man who described Trump supporters as "fringe" giving lectures on selling out our souls, so soon after becomng a Trump supporter.

But that fringe became a very large majority and realized, the establishment are the real sell outs.

Are you sure you aren't just supporting the last Republican standing?

No, I just would never vote for any liberal progressive.

It is hilarious the Dems think they are somehow the ones hurting Trump by comparing his campaign to a "game show."

It is hilarious. The seriousness of the investigation on Hillary is more paramount (as she campaigns for the presidency) than Trumps so-called "game show" gimmick the Dems are trying to pin on Trump's campaign.

It doesn't take rocket science to fig that 1 out.

When the doors blow completely off these FBI and FIOA investigations Hillary is going to be in very deep trouble

Nuther good point here. Too bad the Catholics, LGBT, Black / Hispanic voters cannot see that coming. They'd rather attempt to incite riots and bash police car windshields and sirens if Hillary was taken out of the campaign to be arraigned or formally indicted.

...the reality of Democracy, is Amerika mandating trans-gender restrooms in schools. What happened to your by-the-people for the-people thing? Democracy is a facade and Amerikans are too ignorant to see beyond it.
