Trump is #2 in GOP Field - Page 128

post #1906 of 8748
It's funny that they put Putin in there after Trump's comments praising him earlier this year.

Not that Trump supporters are expecting or even care about consistency.

Ignoring its lack of substance, it will probably be an extremely effective ad. You'll remember it, so will everyone else who sees it. Some of those people are persuaded by this stuff.

As far as I can tell, Trump's claims to being a badass tough guy amount to: having gone to military boarding school and talking a big talk. And, as we all know, he's whiny as fuck when he think people have insulted him. It's obvious that this is exactly the kind of fake badassery that his supporters want--acting tough but mostly so they can whine and mewl about how they're persecuted and unhappy. But it is genuinely fascinating how his supporters deny such self-evident facts--in this case, how someone like Putin would effortlessly unmask Trump as the clown he is.

In a more honest world, HRC would release a rebuttal ad that says: "Hey Donald, how many people have you ordered to be killed? Because I've killed a pretty good number."

I think you are a woman. Am I correct?

I think you are an imbecile, and you're leaving ample evidence of that throughout this thread.

BTW, I hope your campaign for presidential term limits is going well. We really need those in the U.S.

It's funny because one of the big complaints from the left is that Hillary is too much of a hawk.


It's never been clear what exactly people want from Obama when they demand that he be "tougher," so I guess we can expect more of the same for the next batch of Democrats.

This election cycle is making it clear that for some Americans, having a tough foreign policy amounts to making puerile, inflammatory declarations. As one would in, say, a professional wrestling spectacle.

His administration has been scrutinized for implementing questionable rules of engagement. Also, simply acknowledging the threat would be a nice start, even it it's just symbolic, though one could argue that someone who can't utter the words is not the person you want as commander in chief.

Oh great just what this country needed the last eight years was more paranoia and fear mongering. Are people really that afraid because I assure you it is way less scary than it was 50 years ago

People never seem to believe me when I tell them that America is the safest it's been since the '60's. Not to mention not having to worry about the Soviets lobbing ICBM's at us anymore.

Especially in light of the double standard in how the media treats it when Trump acts like a buffoon -- there's no shortage of clips of Clinton doing or saying stupid things, if they wanted to play them.

People get on the internet and act like children hiding under the covers telling each other scary stories . They worry about being killed by terrorists and great white sharks then they jump in their cars and blast around on the freeways like madmen. Yeah just what we need is a POTUS telling everybody to be afraid

It's to the advantage of no one in the halls of power for the general populace to feel safe.

Trumps a plot by msm to get Hills elected didn't you know that? At least thats what Ted Cruz told me last night on my radio. It would really behoove conserves to to get their" who's out to get you today" stories together. I'm starting to have a lot of trouble keeping up
