Trump is a leader!See how the others are following his style?
How refreshing!Trump is not part of the political norm.Remember four years ago when Obama stated taxes won't go up a single dime
in any form, and the budget will be balanced in three years?Sorry
Mitt, but who's the phony?
The picture of Trump and the baby that accompanies the article sums up
Trump's campaign perfectly: Trump, smiling broadly, while those he comes in
contact with are anything but happy.Come on, America. LOOK at Trump
in his entirety. He "says" many of the right things (when he's not
busy being arrogant / uncouth / angry / vulgar / light on actual policy
positions) but the guy is crass and clueless. Being "Presidential"
doesn't mean being a wuus, but it doesn't mean being a bully, either.
Having lived in Germany 24 years after WWII, there was still sentiment carried
over from the rise and fall of the third Reich, it is sort of appalling to see
the same type of zeal coming from a campaign that arouses peoples unkind
emotions that rend the heart and soul to angry people. To go by the town
meetings people had in the 1970s and to see the posters of people from the
United States with negative comments about our country, was sad to see and feel.
I lived in countries where dictators ruled without balance in those
countries. It now appears that some candidates believe they can go in and
become this type of leader and force department heads and military leaders to do
things that are contrary to law and order. We are a political country, not a
nation of forced military rule. We have a legislative, court and executive
system. Even Germany had a system that was eroded to give them a sole ruler
able to force his system upon his elite citizens at the ruin of ethnic and
unaccepted people in his country and soon to be conquered nations. The nation
was under his absolute control.
Shouldn't the parents of that terrified toddler in the picture be charged
with child abuse?Hey Tumbleweed -"It's called
charisma, something every leader needs to be successful."Who
said?If you're talking about the leader of clown troupe, yes
that's true.Otherwise, NO . . . It's not true at all.COMPETENCE and ABILITY take precedence over charisma any day of the
week.Except in the eyes of Republicans, being a charismatic fool
qualifies NO ONE to be President of the United States.
@tumbleweed Yes, also for every villain or a demagogue! Trump is unleashing
some dark primitive emotions in many Americans and soon he wont be able to
control them. Then the real fun will start...if you can call that fun! :(
It's probably charisma to him, but I sure hope that his supporters are wise
enough not to take chaos to the extreme.
Donald Trump is the face of the Republican Party. The people who support the
Trump campaign are angry with the Republican Party as it begins to give lip
service to their needs. But that is all talk. Once establishment Republicans get
elected to office, it's business as usual and they will be told to go home
and keep quiet. One of the things being given minimum exposure on
the debate stage is "income inequality." Four years ago when Mitt Romney
was the Republican candidate, income inequality was ignored. It was a Democratic
issue and the Republican establishment disparagingly called it "class
warfare" as the top one percent continued to enjoy increasing wealth.The only thing that keeps these Trump people from jumping ship is Donald
Trump. Also, they continue to maintain a conservative political view with
significant nativist, racial, anti-foreign/anti-immigrant bias. Also, they are
extremely conservative in their religious and social views. These attitudes
don't fit with the opposing Party.The Republican Party ceased
being the Party of Lincoln more than 135 years ago. It stopped being the Party
of Reagan 25 years ago. Now it is the Party of Trump.
It's called charisma, something every leader needs to be successful.
