Trump's MO

as he's been able to skate on everything his entire life- lie, threaten, bring in the lawyers and lie, threaten, stall. If the other guy has deep enough pockets and a good enough case, settle eventually. (Roy Cohn).

Now he has the benefit of the entire DOJ as his personal lawyers, on the taxpayers' dime.

I think he actually was naive enough when he came into the office to believe that's the way it already worked. But lo and behold, he got there- thanks to a lot of people who will probably never bother to give any consideration to what they've wrought.

You can take that strawman out to the burning man gathering in the Nevada desert. They have never seen anything like it.

Still, in 2016 the choice was Trump or Hillary.  In 2020, we'll have a new choice, Democrats need to concentrate on finding a reasonable/acceptable choice to put on the ticket.  I doubt if Republicans, at least at this point, will offer up any alternatives to Trump.

Lol. That's funny- there is no Republican Party left, only a Trump Cult.

There is no person in the universe- R or D- who won't immediately be the personification of evil in the minds of the Trump Cult. Think of the tiny sliver of the GOP who have been defenestrated for even the slightest deviation from orthodoxy.

The only way Trump will lose to anyone is if somehow some "swing voters" come to realize that he is as evil as it gets. Tough to do, particularly if you regularly rub shoulders with a lot of people who otherwise appear normal but have been captured by the cult.

I've been about as persistent a critic of "the Clintons" as anybody and have come to the conclusion that somewhere between 25 and 50% of their "crimes" have some basis. And it was an extremely painful to have to go into the voting booth and pull the lever for her because her opponent was more evil.

The most fascinating thing about the Trump Cult is that, to this day, their singular achievement (and not a lot else that truly unifies them) is that they slew the wicked witch.

Weird stuff. And not like I didn't warn the Ds about their folly, at the top of my lungs.

If the dems put up a candidate that will secure the border, propose a fiscally responsible budget that balances, runs on policies that protect the American worker from no regulation foreign competition, and protects the second amendment form the gun grabbers he/she beats Trump in a landslide.

If all they do is play the race card and promise socialism Trump wins in a landslide.

Offer nothing but hate and Trump wins in a landslide.

Re: Trump's MO

The 2nd Amendment is very well "protected" for decades to come, at least, owing to the 2 SCOTUS decisions where Scalia authored the majority opinion. The NRA just makes money telling you it isn't (or they're going to take your bumpstocks and suppressors). Have you been reading the news about the NRA?

"The Border" is a phony issue. That's not where most of our illegal residents came from. But in the "bug not a feature" category, when Trump started bragging about his wall a whole bunch of people in terrible places in Central America mad their move while they still had a shot at asylum (in my view there's a general case for it and we helped create those circumstances).

Maybe you're wavering from Trump on the balanced budget?

Suit yourself. It's a free country.  Convince the populace the border is secure. Win big.
