THIS makes me wonder IF

he can/will take the time to "listen" since it seems he doesn't take the time to "read".

I suppose it also applies to his "followers"

Trump touts a poll that's terrible for him

President Trump gave a Twitter shout this morning to one finding of a national poll released yesterday:

"In new Quinnipiac Poll, 66% of people feel the economy is 'Excellent or Good.' That is the highest number ever recorded by this poll."

"Trump's policies are helping the nation's economy, 37 percent of voters say, as 29 percent say his policies are hurting the economy and 30 percent say these policies are not making much difference," the Quinnipiac news release says.

"But 49 percent of voters say former President Barack Obama is more responsible for the state of the economy, while 40 percent say Trump is more responsible."

Even worse, an amazing 57 percent of respondents said Trump is "not fit for office" and 69 percent said he isn't "level-headed." His job approval rating is 36 percent.

That thinks Trump is a moron and should not be leading the country.

The repubs in congress need him to pass their agenda so they tolerate him.

One of our members will drag out her grudge list to point out how unfit BO was.

I won't argue about something that happened 2/4/8 yrs ago.

It's hard to have a discussion with someone who

In reply to: I'm with the group

can't or won't answer a simple question of "What POLICIES have Trump put into place or plans to that you DON'T agree with"....you don't have to like his METHODS, which you criticize often, but the POLICIES are all that matter, and you even refuse to discuss them.

As for the 'agenda that Reps want to pass so they tolerate him'........it's exactly the OPPOSITE. Those are TRUMP's agendas that they RAN on. Tolerance is actually having to come from HIM not from THEM. Please get it right for a change.

You and JP suffer from the same "derangement syndrome" because you both insist on insulting him with 'quotes' around them and parroting the liberal media name calling and 'assumption' type lies. "Jared and his bunkmates"????? "Trump doesn't read"????????

IF you are really interested in anything other than slurs, please let me know.

As for your finding your way into SE as 'coincidence'.........why would you, with hundreds of forums to pick from that you USED to go to by your own admission, come into one that only has FIVE members who post here? Three of us have been here since it started in 1996 which is why we are still here.....what's YOUR excuse? Were you chased out of the other ones because even THEY realized that you have NO interest in REAL debate regarding REAL issues?

Hundreds of forums that I used to go to?

In reply to: It's hard to have a discussion with someone who

Where did you get that?

Do you live the same place Trump does?.....fantasy island.

No other forum that I go to has righties with a grudge list.

So far the only thing that has passed is Ryan's tax plan.

It got sold as a middle class tax cut and it is but it's really a tax cut for the wealthy.

I don't think they could sell it as a upper class tax cut so they change the name.

Estimates are a trillion buck hole but righties don't want to hear that so it must be fake news.

You admitted to going to "many" forums

In reply to: Hundreds of forums that I used to go to?

and since there are HUNDREDS to choose from, I stated that as well. You still never answered, as usual, why you CHOOSE to stay in a forum with at least TWO Conservatives, ONE other far left radical, and ONE moderate when you have so many others you could be in? I already told you my suspicions.

As for the 'only' thing that's passed is the tax cut plan, you obviously have NO interest in actually seeing or acknowledging the complete list of Trump's ACTUAL accomplishments and bills that HAVE been passed already, of which there are many, but the LEFT doesn't want to and refuses to talk about them. Do some informative research for a change.

As for the 'trillion buck hole' you talk about........that is over a TEN YEAR PERIOD OF TIME, and ONLY if there are NO new jobs during that period of time. I'm surprised you could even parrot that liberal talking point with a straight face, considering that BO (again) ran OVER A TRILLION DOLLAR DEFICIT BUDGETS EVERY YEAR IN A ROW FOR FIVE YEARS. Hell, the Dems never even passed a budget in all those years because Harry Reid refused to put one up for a vote....hence the CR's over and over again.  Dispute that if you believe you can and provide proof that I'm lying or living in a fantasy world that I just made it up.  The only ones living in that fantasy land are the liberal Dems who ALWAYS make crap up and people like you swallow the bull every time.  You personally NEVER provide links to back up the garbage you spill out.  I DARE you to do it.........

In your agitated state/fantasy world you came up with 100's.....no.

Why stay in SE?
Righties add humor to the day with their rants about something that happened in the past.

Provide links for you.....waste of time.
If you did not like what it said you would call it fake news.

No, Bob

In reply to: Many....yes

You provide links to show that you aren't parroting what some other liberal or media commentator said in order to back up what you repeat. Otherwise there is no credibility to it. That's what snowflakes do...they take what someone TOLD them as gospel and repeat it over and over again and swear it's the truth without being able to prove it. Providing links to me isn't a waste of time, except for yours because you CAN'T find proof to your claims so you don't even try to. You just throw out all kinds of garbage statements and name calling and hope to hell something sticks. If you want to be taken seriously, bring your game to the table.

In reply to: No, Bob

I've already explained why I don't provide links.
You would just reject them as fake news...that's the repub mind set.
That's what Trump does.

Your thing is to carp about something that BO did.

Why not JFK or Nixon or Ford?
You must have many things on your grudge list.

Since you are relatively new here (sure)

In reply to: Links

You aren't aware that I HAVE ranted about other Presidents AND candidates who ran....ask anybody here. And if you actually paid attention to my posts you would see that I have actually criticized them even recently, especially as comparisons. Nixon should have been put on trial and convicted instead of being allowed to resign and become a national 'hero' by being pardoned by Ford and bringing China to the table....and BOTH were Republicans. I've been highly critical of Johnson, Coolidge, Wilson, Carter, Clinton, and BO. It's not my fault that all of THEM were/are Dems with agendas that hurt the country, with BO at the top of the list regarding destruction being done deliberately. Clinton was the ONLY one who was willing to work with Republicans, but not until his second term.....and I mainly blame his wife for having such strong influence over him for his first term trying to push HER agenda and not HIS. Even in this last run, she refused to listen to him regarding reaching the 'fly over' States. The LIAR and BO are the biggest dirt bags we've had in office.

You ASSUME I would reject your links as fake news....I beg to differ with that, Bob. I agree that I would probably debate it with the other side of the coin point of view, but by not providing links, you are nothing more than a propaganda puppet with the liberal media and Dems as your ventriloquists, and like their dummies, they have no minds or the ability to reason on their own. That is the very definition of a 'snowflake'.....don't bother to inform yourself and do your own research to know what you're talking about....just 'shout down the opposition' and remove their ability to speak.

Every pol that runs for prez has an agenda.

If enough voters like that agenda they get elected.

I may not like the agenda but I don't carp about it.

With Trump I comment about how he acts like a clueless vain child.

I don't have a problem with the repub/Trump agenda.
I understand where they are trying to go.
I have to wonder about some things but I'll wait and see how it plays out.

Jared Kushner, Whose Father Was Jailed, Has a Plan to Overhaul America's Prison System

Kushner has apparently taken a special interest in the issue because his father, Charles Kushner, served 14 months in an Alabama prison after then-U.S. Attorney Chris Christie prosecuted him for illegal campaign contributions, tax evasion and witness tampering in 2005. The elder Kushner served the rest of his two-year sentence in a halfway house in Newark, New Jersey.

tsk, tsk, tsk....

Old news...Conservatives knew this four days ago

In reply to: OK...this may be why he has a bee in his bonnet...

It just took you a while to catch up, as usual, in your never ending rant against Trump et al.  Where were you when BO was giving 'amnesty' via EO's to illegals, which included his own aunt and uncle living here who were scheduled for deportation twice and never happened?  Oh, yeah, totally silent even to this day.  And where were you when BO was releasing thousands of criminals back onto the street while touting how he was serving up 'fairness' in the judicial system, and that he was 'only' releasing drug users, but it turned out that he was releasing hundreds of violent offenders as well.  Oh yeah, total silence again.  At least Kushner's father actually SERVED his sentence.......
