    "You may dislike President Trump but his track record is amazing! He gets it DONE!"

    Here's a couple data points showing what Trump has DONE...

    Dow average is flat for the past year, after the worst December since the Great Depression.
    Deficit (and debt) have spiked because he cut taxes without cutting spending.
    China trade deficit at all time high.
    Mexico trade deficit at all time high.
    More charges, indictments, convictions and guilty pleas in cabinet and staff in 2 years than the previous 3 presidents combined in 24 years.
    Nearly doubled Obama's rate of executive orders.
    Far exceeded Obama's rate of vacations and golfing.
    Took credit for the longest government shutdown in history.

    "Cory Booker admitted just last year in a news interview that he had sexually abused a woman while he was a college student. No speculation or mere allegation about it. This is not irrelevant information. He is unfit for public office."

    Yes, Booker admitted he had been improper while in High School -- NOT college.

    He ADMITTED it voluntarily. He was not forced to do so.

    He has grown up.

    Contrast that to a man who has boasted time and again about grabbing women "by the *****," on a raunchy radio show. The man who has threatened women who told what he had done to them with lawsuits. The man who has insulted women who disclosed his past actions. The man who even went so far as to say some awfully improper things about his own daughter. The man who claimed he was a veteran of the Vietnam era, except that his "combat" was trying to avoid sexually transmitted diseases. The man who had repeated sexual affairs while married to three other women. The man who may be trying desperately to hide sexual impropriety while visiting Russia. The man who obviously has no shame for his past behaviors and who, in fact, has repeatedly boasted about them.

    And you tell us Booker is unfit?

    @thid

    I am sure if those things were passed republicans would use them and complain about them but they wouldn’t give them up.

    It is the same thing with SS and Medicare, Medicaid, snap and so on.

    Outrage without substance is hypocritical.

    trump has not had much to tweet about other Dems who have announced, but he pounced on Booker immediately.

    That's a good sign that trump is seriously worried about Booker being able to appeal to reasonable Americans who would vote the tweeter out.

    Go, Cory ! Go !

    In my memory NO senator has ever possessed the qualifications required to be POTUS. Driven by inflated egos, most perceive themselves as highly talented. None have the least executive experience, having never been Chief executive of anything requiring decision-making.
    Barack Obama is the best example of my point. He possessed no skills remotely pertinent to being POTUS.
    Yet we have a swarm of U.S. senators clamoring for the oval office. Growing by the hour almost.
    You may dislike President Trump but his track record is amazing! He gets it DONE!
    His opposition includes the left, the MSM, academia, hollywood, socialist billionaires, and the SWAMP.

    Rational Americans are not going to vote for any Democrat candidate who promises "free healthcare", "free college", "free income for life" and "free everything" Rational Americans will not vote a 70% tax on themselves to pay for it all either. Nor will they buy into the Hugo Chavez theory that your "rich neighbor" will pay for all your free stuff. Forcing one group of people to work for that which they will not receive so another group can receive that for which they did not work used to be called slavery. Today, its called "progressivism" or the Democrat party playbook! Democrats like Cory Booker are guaranteeing Donald Trump will be re-elected!

    USA politics have gone from inane to insane. The Democrats are going to have to find a candidate as much, or more, out of his/her mind than Trump to have a chance to be heard and compete in the politics of crazy.

    The first argument against Booker is the same he tried against Kavanagh. Except Booker in an op-ed admitted to a sexual assault.
