I say: "I hope you're right, for the good of the country."

No bet.



I agree. Trump as president is what this country needs.

I did not claim that, nor do I believe that to be true.

I did not vote for him.

However, we are stuck with the guy, at least for awhile, so all I can do is "hope for the best."

What this country "needs" is a unifier, a peace-maker, a person with keen political skills and abilities.

Electing Trump, an avowed "outsider" and a non-politician to head the US political system makes about as much sense as hiring a schizophrenic, homeless, roadside beggar to perform brain surgery.

"Unifier" and "Peace-maker" are buzzwords used by politicians for convenience. Our country hasn't had a real "unifier" since FDR, well Ok, maybe Reagan to a point. After 8 years of Obama, we are more divided than ever. Who would you suggest is a "unifier" that can help?

As for "Peace-maker", there are none. Dems say a peace-maker doesn't fight in the middle east, but it's OK to bomb civilians in Eastern Europe or Somalia. Repubs say don't fight in Europe or Somalia, but it's OK to bomb civilians in the rest of the middle east. It's all crap from both parties.

I don't know if he'll be impeached, but I could see a number of different scenarios where he doesn't fulfill his term.

As for what's going to happen in the next few years, I'm not too worried. I think that personally I'll do just fine, but I suspect that a lot of the people who have put their hope in Trump will be disappointed. We shall see what happens, but the first shot across the bow may be the dismantling of Medicare and I doubt that will go over very well.

As for me, I've developed an investment strategy for the immediate future;
1) watch for Trump to tweet something negative about a company
2) wait 5 days while the stop drops like a rock
3) buy
I figure I'll be able to buy a nice island in the south pacific within a few years.

I voted no, but it's definitely a possibility. Trump has a history of ignoring the rules, and could be gotten. It won't be as was as day 1, like some people try telling us. The Republicans need him for now, they wont be so quick to use some technicalities right away. He'll probably need to do something quite egregious.

Gary Hart was put out of the running for a single photo on a boat with the wrong woman on his lap. Trump grabs them by the genitals (by his own admission and testimony of a dozen victims), walks in on naked teenagers, married a porn model for his 3rd wife, publicly screwed around on the first 2, considers women pigs and objects. Meh, say the Trump voters.



Okay, my Liberal friends, feel free to jump in with your usual tried and untrue "false equivalencies" and "there goes RonC with another everybody does it"...those silly comments are just that. When you have nothing to say, say something silly, untrue, or nasty.

Gary Hart did indeed end up leaving the race because of an affair. Things changed a whole lot four years later when NOTHING Bill Clinton was accused of stopped him from being the Democrat nominee, and becoming the President. We can argue semantics of who is worse, how much Hillary aided Bill in his affairs, and how horrid Trump is...but the cat got out of the bag big time in 1992. It isn't that "stuff" didn't happen before that; it is just that we, as an electorate, decided in 1992 that we were sure we could ignore a whole lot of sexual misconduct.

I am not defending Trump; his conduct has not been anything to be proud of over the years. It is like many things, though...where is the line when the line is obliterated?

Will Trump be impeached before his 4 year term is up?



Of course he will be, history has a long
record of congress impeaching their
own party's president. Happens all
the time. And there's no chance of
the Dems taking the senate in 2018,
not with 25 Dem seats up for grabs,
and only 10 Repub. So likely Trump
will be impeached by his own party
and then Pence, and Sessions will
be president by 2020.

This makes as much sense as the title
of this thread.

Other people have to withdraw, not because of what they did, but because of the reactions of those who give money and unopposed criticism with money. For Trump, it didn't matter, because he had his own money to spend, independent of supporters.
