It's a shame that nobody can
convince HC to release her transcripts or videos of her speeches to her Wall Street buddies.....guess they don't want the public to hear what she has really promised them behind 'closed' doors like BO did with Russia on that open mic ("Tell Putin that when I'm re-elected I'll be more flexible")
Vote for Bernie...He's your man?
RE:Tell Putin that when I'm re-elected I'll be more flexible
Whatever you think HC offered...it wasn't enough
“[Donald Trump is] a really brilliant and talented person, without any doubt,” [Vladimir] Putin told reporters, according to a translation by Interfax. “It’s not our job to judge his qualities, that’s a job for American voters, but he’s the absolute leader in the presidential race.”
More "flexible " than TheRUMP?
Trump’s relationship with Putin and his warm views toward Russia, which began in the 1980s when the country was still part of the Soviet Union, have emerged as one of the more curious aspects of his presidential campaign.
As a businessman, not a poltician,
Trump has had to 'schmooze' leaders in USA government and other countries in order to get his projects done. As a politician, BO and HC have sucked up (huge difference) and caved to other foreign leaders in order to line their own pockets or push a world/global agenda.
Do you think BO would be willing to give back his cash and Nobel Peace Prize that he got in the first few months of being in office when he hadn't done anything yet or since to deserve it?
RE:BO would be willing to give back his Nobel Peace Prize
TheRUMP will NEVER have to make THAT decision. TheRUMP with the Nobel Peace Prize?...You are one funny individual.
Trump has had to 'schmooze' leaders
schmooze.....talk intimately and cozily; gossip.
suck up......behave obsequiously, especially for one's own advantage.
I guess you think he wasn't "schmoozing" for "his own advantage"
TheRUMP and Putin...Pillow Talk?
Where have you seen that Trump
has ever actually talked with Putin, even as a businessman?
How much suck up 'pillow talk' do you suppose BO and HC have done in the last 8 years with world leaders? Much of it has been done behind closed doors but some has been done on open mics.
Schmoozing? Isn't that another way of laying the groundwork
for negotiating something? Negotiation generally requires that all sides give up something in order to get something they want. A failed negotiation means all sides walk away and nothing is accomplished. We already have too much of that in our congress right now. In fact, too often the negotiation phase is never entered due to stubbornness on one side or both. I think we need to give up on the idea that it's OK to completely serve one side and leave the other out in the cold due to some PC or social engineering agenda. Such intransigence is killing our political system. We don't need people in Washington whose slogan contains the word "fight" or any of it's derivatives.
How does "Negotiating for You" sound[?
you would use the words "OUR CONGRESS", when it isn't YOUR congress at all.....but I would suggest that you switch that word Congress to "President" instead since every single negotiation he or his spokespersons have done in the last 8 years have resulted in NOTHING for the USA and EVERYTHING for the 'other side'. The only thing that has been accomplished has been for the leaders of the 'other side' countries have laughed their asses off at BO et al.
"nothing is accomplished. We already have too much of that in our congress right now"
There is a vast difference between 'schmoozing' in order to 'make a sale' and 'sucking up' in order to make the country you are supposed to be protecting weaker across the world, both economically and militarily. BTW, according to OUR Constitution, the ONLY job that the Federal Government has is to PROTECT THE USA.....not undermine it for a personal agenda or otherwise.
I messed up
My reply was meant for JP Bill. I do see "schmoozing" as a process used to open up more serious conversation. It's a way to feel people out in a more polite manner before getting into the ring with them. It's a goofy word. I'll grant that.
I messed up as well
and didn't bother to look at who posted....some of the wording was pretty familiar for the type of 'taunting' rhetoric that JP tosses around regularly which is why I responded the way I did. Sorry, Steven
No apology needed
I'm not a fan of either surviving candidate but I will defend a quality that I like. To Trump's credit, he's not out there bashing the Democrat party as an entity. He does go after people and their past performance instead. His opponent goes after all three: the person, their accomplishments and their party as a whole. How in the heck can she expect to find common ground in negotiating with members of the other party after constantly criticising it by name? It's going to take a lot of schmoozing to back away from that damage.
Now...as for Trump, I don't know if he can be a team player. That's a must. A president cannot do everything but a president should be able to inspire others to do great things and that includes all of us and not just a select few. It's the American people that need to feel confidence in themselves and not just confidence that government will take care of them no matter what.
Anxiously awaiting Toni H to respond to

And Hillary's slogan
"Fighting for us" Well...who is "us" and who is "them"? And what's the fight about anyway? Fighting and negotiating are not the same concepts. If she wants to unite, she should be change the word "Fighting" to something else...wouldn't ya' think? Enough fighting, already.
I think anxiety pills or attacks
affects Alz.....be careful. I don't necessarily believe that a President has to be a team player. Look at BO's record.....he got his way by bullying, threatening, bribing, and lying to his own team of Dems. At least Trump actually has a record of getting both parties to make deals with him over the past years.....that's somebody who knows how to negotiate, and you can't say anything even close to that with this administration, nor can you say it about hilLIARy based on HER past record.
RE: I don't necessarily believe
I don't necessarily believe that a President has to be a team player. Look at BO's record
So you're finally admitting you agree with Obamas actions.
Even a team captain is a member of the team
The whole idea is to know and capture the strengths of each player. All have weaknesses...even the captain. A captain that thinks he/she can do any and everything is not a good player. In my lifetime, I saw Reagan as having the best idea of what his role was as president. I won't get into his choice of people for playing positions as that would only be hindsight. Hindsight is only useful for making excuses and for media spin.
RE:I messed up as well
The Donald has a term for that....He used it when referring to Megyn Kelly
RE:didn't bother to look at who posted.
IF I did the same thing...YOU would mention Alzheimer.
Thankfully I'm not like you.
The difference is
that I made a choice to not bother......you, on the other hand, have compulsive babbling issues.
RE:that I made a choice to not bother..
some of the wording was pretty familiar for the type of 'taunting' rhetoric that JP tosses around regularly which is why I responded the way I did. Sorry, Steven
I suggest you READ your post and read all posts you respond to at least twice.....You don't attack the post....You attack whoever you think is posting.
Steven has now felt your wrath......
Perhaps you do read all the posts 2 or 3 times...Alz?
Remember this response I made to one of your "babbling" comments?
Toni H & JP Bill...2 babblers.
I DID attack the post
BECAUSE of the wording being so familiar to what YOU normally post.
You attacked the post?
The poster made the post...not the post.
some of the wording was pretty familiar for the type of 'taunting' rhetoric that JP tosses around regularly which is why I responded the way I did.
Familiar? tosses around regularly?
We already have too much of that in our congress
Use We & our when posing a question to you?
I don't think so.
RE:Negotiation generally requires
Negotiation generally requires that all sides give up something in order to get something they want.
SShhhh! Don't tell Toni OR The Donald.
Evidently BO and HC don't understand
negotiations at all since he gives away everything he might have on his side and allows the other side to have everything they want.
That's only his foreign policy. He's a bit weak
His domestic policy is stronger. He won't budge.
Re: the other side everything they want
That's great news for you.
Just like BO gave the Republican majority in the Congress everything they wanted, HC will do the same. I've yet to see Donald Trump to be as bad a negociator as you claim them both to be.
So my advice. if you believe what you wrote (and why shouldn't you) vote HC for president and the Republican candidate in your state for Congress and Senate, and you'll get all you want.
You must have different news sources.
Most of what Republicans presented never even made it to Obama's desk.
Re: never made it
If he didn't know about it, he can't have negociated about it either. So those points - no doubt minor points - are outside the scope of Toni's statement.
for the most part pocketed every bill that Reps presented which is why they never made it to BO's desk....they were never allowed to be voted on in the first place which is the ONLY way a bill makes it, once passed, to BO's 'pen' to veto or sign. He didn't HAVE to negotiate in Congress with Reps when he had a junk yard dog stopping them in their tracks. BO never 'negotiated' even with his own Congress....he used Chicago tactics to get them in line to 'cooperate' and give him what he wanted. When he or his subordinates 'negotiate' deals outside of this country with foreign leaders, we always end up losing but he publicly calls them all 'victories'. That's not negotiating.....that's the world doing to him what he has done in Congress.
So do YOU agree with Steven?
