Reset Checklist....Endorsements, Check

    Now that Paul Ryan, Kelly Ayotte and John McCain are endorsed the WaPo and Wolf Blitzer can rest easy, although I am unsure what difference it makes.
    What is more important is Mr. Trump is outlining his jobs policy on Monday in Detroit.  More meat on the bone and campaign appearances different from his rallies would help, but make no mistake, the left has very effectively portrayed Mr. Trump as ill prepared, unstable and dangerous.
     Not since Goldwater has there been so much talk of "the button".

I rarely hear about the button. I mostly hear about him being racist, misogynistic, zino something or other, vulgar, dumb, and unfit. Then there is orange comb over and pervert with his daughter. Oh yes and dictator Nazi.

You watch too much cable that no one else watches. No one goes to Scarborough Fair.

So, to summarize, the Clinton related body count so far this election cycle: Five in just under six weeks - four convenient deaths plus one suicide...

1) Shawn Lucas, Sanders supporter who served papers to DNC on the Fraud Case (DOD August 2, 2016)

2) Victor Thorn, Clinton author (and Holocaust denier, probably the least credible on this list) shot himself in an apparent suicide. Conspiracy theorists at Mystery Writers of America said some guys will do anything to sell books. (DOD August, 2016)

3) Seth Conrad Rich, Democratic staffer, aged 27, apparently on his way to speak to the FBI about a case possibly involving the Clintons. The D.C. murder was not a robbery. (DOD July 8, 2016)

4) John Ashe, UN official who allegedly crushed his own throat while lifting weights, because he watched too many James Bond films and wanted to try the move where the bad guy tries to…oh, never mind. “He was scheduled to testify against the Clintons and the Democrat Party.” (DOD June 22, 2016)

5) Mike Flynn, the Big Government Editor for Breitbart News. Mike Flynn’s final article was published the day he died, “Clinton Cash: Bill, Hillary Created Their Own Chinese Foundation in 2014.” (DOD June 23, 2016)
It must be coincidence, right?

Yes. And the reason the left has so easily and "very effectively portrayed Mr.Trump as ill prepared, unstable and dangerous" is because he so obviously and thoroughly is. Oh, and I'm no liberal. This will not be the first election that I pinch my nose and vote for someone I do not like.

Unfortunately, as it stands now, one of only two candidates will be elected President. A tough choice for sure. Despite the Trump supporters spouting off about the MSM attacking poor Mr. Trump, there has been much information unfavorable to Mrs. Clinton out there. Almost continually for 20 years or more. Much of it brought to us by the MSM. So drop that conspiracy theory. As for Mr. Trumps lack of support among Republicans (myself among them), it is almost hilarious to hear them referred to as RINOs by Trump supporters. Do they even comprehend what the letters stand for? Mr. Trump has changed party registration 7 times, has no core values, talks out of both sides off his mouth (yet it all could be mistaken for coming from another orifice) and has a long and rich history of comments and positions contradictory to Republican ideals. He is the very definition of RINO.

Work, pray (to whom, or whatever, you choose. Or not.)and vote to elect as many Republicans as possible to the the House and Senate.

The only finger on the button we need to worry about is not in America. It's in Korea, China, and Russia. Maybe some of the terror creeps? Our system is not based on first strike. Never has been. It's about responding. I have seen many here post over the last few years they are sick of the no response nature of our current government. You can not have it both ways. We need a responder.

10:06, your crap doesn't sell here. Trump was elected by the republican voters, as the one who most closely represents the republicans. You don't get to choose who that is unilaterally, the party members do and they have spoken. If you choose not to support him, then you are a RINO by definition. We don't select him as our dictator, nor do we agree with him on everything, anymore than we agree with any candidate on everything. We select him to work with congress and particularly the Republican portion of congress. There is no doubt that he is better than the other choice. there is no doubt that he will push the party away from the RINO republicans that dominate congress currently.

Trump is not unstable, dangerous or unprepared. He is only guilty of going out in public and saying things you don't like or can't overlook as bluster.

Meanwhile our current president and the womyn who is running against him, are very dangerous and unstable. From Iran to ransoms to letting GITMO terrorists go back to fighting, to letting terrorists bring their wives in from terrorist nations. To calling terrorist acts, "workplace violence" to letting illegal immigrant spread their ZIKA disease here.

Smart Americans want illegal immigration to be reduced. They want immigration of Terrorists to be restricted. They want college costs to come down instead of having the taxpayers write a check for it. They want everything that Hillary stands against.

So after all the talk about Trump being a political outsider, in the end he bowed down and kissed the ring of the GOP establishment. He is now in league with the same folks that gave Obama everything he asked for year after year. I haven't seen such a sellout since Bernie bowed down before Hillary.

If you want real change, you won't find it in either of the major political parties.

Vote Johnson/Weld 2016. #NeverTrump

“Mr. Trump has changed party registration 7 times, has no core values, talks out of both sides off his mouth…”

Hmmm…. Sounds a lot like a certain former mayor.

Sure 10:48, if you say so. "Trump is not unstable, dangerous or unprepared" On what basis do you come to that conclusion? The facts, a preponderance of evidence, suggests otherwise. That makes this your opinion. You not only have the right to this opinion but you also have the right to express it. Now, as for your statement that he was elected by a majority of Republicans... How so? The majority of republicans voted for someone else. Its right there in the math. Try not to parrot what you hear others say and think these things through for yourself.

Reach hard and long enough and you may grasp it.

“….but make no mistake, the left has very effectively portrayed Mr. Trump as ill prepared, unstable and dangerous.”

The left?

You mean people like long time conservative Max Boot and countless others from the right? Or a conservative blog as in Redstate?

You really need to get out more Jeff.

A policy expert explains how anti-intellectualism gave rise to Donald Trump:

“For decades, the Republican Party has worn a "know-nothing" facade to appeal to ordinary Americans, but it’s no longer just talk — they have truly created a “know-nothing” candidate with Donald Trump…”
-----------------------------
“…Uneducated voters are a core base for Trump, but Boot says that this group is being “taken for a ride” by the GOP nominee.
They’re not necessarily stupid, but they’re not very knowledgeable,” he says.

“[Trump] claims that he can solve all their problems when he can’t. He can’t even begin to solve their problems, and in fact he’ll make their problems a lot worse with his policies on protectionism, isolationism, nativism and xenophobia. All of these things will make America much poorer and much less safe, but I think he’s gulled a lot of people into thinking that ‘I alone can solve’ — his mantra.”
-------------------------------
“It would be such a catastrophe [if he was elected],” Boot says. “I truly believe Donald Trump is the most dangerous and ignorant major party political candidate that we’ve ever seen in American history, and I really regard him right now as the number one national security threat to the United States. If he were to actually try to implement these policies — to expel 11 million undocumented immigrants and start trade wars with Mexico and China, to pull out of NATO — the United States will become much less safe and much less prosperous. Our economy will go into a tail spin and our security will be endangered.”

I would be very, very worried about what Donald Trump would do,” he says. “I’ve never been worried about this, but I’m actually worried about this now.”

So trump is going to roll out his economic package now. The guy has all ready has shown is colors. to late. The left has not portrayed him as a nut. He can take full credit for that.

1:16 Try not to be so idiotic. I am sure you could stop if you only set your mind to it.
So Trump only got 45% of the vote against nine other major candidates running against him, and you are going to key in on the definition of majority instead of plurality or relative majority. You know what that makes you? A dolt. A pedantic dolt but a dolt nonetheless.

It is an undeniable fact that Trump is not unstable, dangerous or unprepared. As measured against all previous presidents. The current sitting president having set the bar to the lowest standard ever. Try hard and long enough and you may grasp it.

"As measured against all previous presidents." ???? One does not now whether to laugh or cry. You cannot possibly be serious. Are you new to this country or just new to politics in general? Trump would not have made a pimple on Ronald Reagan's ass. Period.

Trump would have squashed RR like a bug. The Reagan that caved in to spending more money than any president, other than Obama.

If stable safe and prepared means to you, one who looks the part, has the voice and the measured cadence of a car salesman, then yes Regan and Obama are prepared stable and safe. If you want someone that is competent and able to make intelligent decisions quickly as well as put the best people in important positions, than Trump is the man. If you want someone who knows how to bring deals together and gain consensus then Trump is the man. If you want someone who has not been a drug user then Trump is the man.

The only one who made the ME worse than Obama was Reagan. The only one who took away more state rights than Obama , was Reagan.

Trump is unstable and dangerous. But the skank who sat back and allowed our people to be murdered, built a foundation on bribes, purposely erased emails, and attacked all the women who did her husband, is not. She be a benign skank. No wonder 10:06 has to hold his nose.
