Sigh …… What Our Politics Have Devolved To

 

 

 

Well, tomorrow, many fellow Americans get to choose who they want as the Republican nominee for President of the United States.   Perhaps neither of these two ass-clowning failed Don Rickles impersonators?

  1. Trump is having an interesting “flap” about David Duke. That should destroy his chances with Catholics and Blacks or anyone who has a problem with Nazis and the K.K.K. His 90% disapproval among Latinos will doom him in Texas and the General.

      Mussolini, Jim. You forgot one.

      • I try to forget Mussolini on general principle.

        Leftin, regardless, Trump blew the Duke thing. The same guy he repudiated in 2000 ….. now he needs to research him? Didn’t know who he was? Had an audio problem and couldn’t hear the question, but, answered it by saying he has to do some research before he would repudiate him? ….. What?

        Well, at this point ………. what difference does it make?

        It’s a sound bite which will play itself over and over and over again. Of course, I’ve been wrong about Trump, so far, but, I don’t see him being able to adequately deflect that one.

        The Mussolini thing is easy, his dumbassness seems to be endearing for many. And, not many people have Mussolini quotes memorized. The Duke thing, though, that’s going to be messy.

          you do realize he went up 2 percentage points right after that….

          ….and then you have headlines like this

          Amid Trump surge, nearly 20,000 Mass. voters quit Democratic party

          “Nearly 20,000 Bay State Democrats have fled the party this winter, with thousands doing so to join the Republican ranks, according to the state’s top elections official. The primary reason? “The Trump phenomenon,”

        • suyts says:

          Yeh, I saw both of those, though, the polls can’t reflect the “Duke” idiocy because there’s no polling in real time. None of it will hurt Trump during his Repub run. It’s after the Repub run that that stuff will get played, over, and over, and over again.

          As to the Mass stuff, you realize there would have to be a couple million defections before any Repub, Trump or otherwise would possibly win Mass in the general election, right?

          oh yeah…I was just pointing out that was the headline at the Boston Herald..front page

        • The people childish enough to put any stock in it, weren’t going to vote for him anyway.

        • Latitude says:

          ==
          well actually…..Mussolini was quoting it too…..it was originally Alexander the Great…and quoted in the Quran

          however, it is a great quote

        • They’ll latch on to anything to reinforce their opinion of him. He’s been their favorite racist and bigot since Day 1, for the wall, and Muslim ban.

        • >>

          <<

          This is better How? Mussolini was a twentieth century brutal fascist dictator whose claim to fame was keeping the trains on time. Alexander the Great was a fourth century BC ruthless conquer. I don’t see any improvement in the source. You do know the term “Great” doesn’t mean he was a nice guy? But in his defense, some of the people he conquered weren’t all that nice either.

          Sigh….Now let’s argue if he’s more like Mussolini or Alexander.

          If anything, maybe Trump has at least awakened us to the fact that we’re beyond ever overcoming our immaturity, the first requirement in solving any of our problems. Let’s give up the pretense.

          LOL!
          Hey, to Mussolini’s credit, he eradicated Malaria in Italy by having the swamps drained by his make-work projects!

        • Not to mention to give up our disingenuous claims that we had the Will it would take to secure our border.

        • How about quoting Milton in Paradise Lost: “Better to reign in Hell, than serve in Heaven.”

          Jim

        • Did you know Alexander the Great had an infinite number of arms?

          Proof:
          1. Alexander the Great was a great general.
          2. Great generals are forewarned.
          3. Forewarned is forearmed.
          4. Four is an even number.
          5. Four is certainly an odd number of arms for a man to have.
          6. The only number that is both even and odd is infinity.
          Therefore, Alexander the Great had an infinite number of arms.

    • Latitude says:

      JIm…you do realize people have been saying that about him since day one

      …and his numbers keep going up

  2. Latitude says:

    Well it devolved to that a long time ago..it’s just politics in general

    Hillary with her fake negro accent, Bill’s watermelon jokes, Biden “at least he’s clean”, Obama clinging…..

    To me Trump was hysterical…..Rubio looked like some kid trying desperately to get even
    …I thought it’s was a tad over the line

    • suyts says:

      I think it’s a lot over the line. I believe the office should command more decorum than that. They both remind me of that congressman from Florida …. Grayson.

    • suyts says:

      I thought it was two ass-clowns exchanging middle school insults while trying to convince voters they were the best person for the weightiest office in the world.

    Some news about the migrants from Austria: “if Merkel & Germany really want the migrants, then please start ‘an airbridge of hearts’ and take them directly from the source, do not force the other to play the role of the bad doorman” (free translation)
    With 5 planes per day one can get 1 million in 1 year much more comfortable – see google translate for the article. Austria seems to be more then fully occupied with the 90.000 already in

    There is a lot of bad blood in Austria already about the existing muslims and the redirection of government support money for children day care for instance:

      That is exactly what the Pan-Europeans SPD and CDU want to replenish Germany’s aging population. They don’t care WHO, they only care about the number. After the local elections in 3 German states in March, this is what they will try to push through, or alternatively, restart the flooding with Muslims via the open borders. German border is still wide open for anyone who screams “Asyl”.

      SPD and CDU are both fully NWO and want to destroy ALL nation states and merge them into a superstate, preferably globally.

      SPDCDU constantly talk about “contingents”, meaning they want to establish a constant incoming stream of warm bodies.

    Breaking news from Super Tuesday.

    Here in Alabama, we’re having our party primaries (there is an amendment on the ballot, too). For the first time in quite some time, I have to vote for the state delegation as well as the primary candidates. Shelby, the squishier of our two Senators is up this year. Talk about Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. I held my nose. My local Congresscritter is worse than either Shelby or Sessions, from a personal liberty standpoint. Funny thing, though, he’s about the median for our 7 Congresscritters. There’s three better and three worse than he is. He had some opposition this time, and, like last time, I voted for the opposition. I voted No to the amendment, which is typical for me.

    A side note. You do not register for a party here as a part of your voter registration. What you do is pick the primary you want to vote in, if there is a party you want to have some influence over. Doing this commits you to the nominated slate, but there is no way to enforce it. That is a flaw here, but there isn’t a better one that has been presented. Our legislature is a part-time one. Oh yeah, they’ve tried to change that, without success so far. Pesky things, voters, when they’re independent.

    People voting for Donald Trump in today’s Super Tuesday Texas Primary are seeing their ballots changed to show a vote for Marco Rubio.

    Numerous callers flooded Austin-based radio station KLBJ this morning with reports of mistakes after they tried to vote for Trump.

      Latitude.
      Nothing surprises me, the American voting system is suspect at best and outright crooked at worst.

    • Big deal. There’s been certifiable voter fraud in the People’s Republic of Washington State for decades. However, if Trump wins Texas (even with voter fraud), I think it’s over for the other Republicans.

      • suyts says:

        All of the polls I’ve read say Cruz takes Texas …… maybe Arkansas. Minnesota is in play. The rest are Trumps. ……. Well, you never know about Alaska, but, then, who cares about Alaska?

  6. TedG says:

    Whenever I hear the pundits condemning Trump I smile and feel good, knowing he will go higher and higher. The more they pile up on him the higher he goes, he is not a racist and most people know it.
    Go Trump go!!!!!!
