    This. So much this. republicans get every vote they should and probably attract about a third of the votes democrats should get. republicans know how to speak to their voters. If democratic party candidates learned how to campaign and speak to voters they could occasionally have a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate (while routinely maintaining at least a 51-49 majority) and always have a majority in the House. If the democratic party powers that be were really smart, they'd read the USCHO political forums and glean plenty of good ideas to run on. I am not speaking facetiously either. I mean that.

    It's tricky, though. The GOP has succeeded not by campaigning for what people want but by campaigning for what they have convinced people to vote against. That fear approach doesn't work well with the core Dems, but I'm not sure we know what works best with those closer to the middle who will tip the balance. We know that someone with the charisma of BO can do it, but until that person comes along dems are going to have to figure out how to play this game.
    If we're using loose metaphors, they are going to have to spend more time in the corners and not be afraid to take a few penalties.

    If body language and positioning mean anything, trump was getting absolutely schooled when this photo was taken. 60+ million people are living in the Bizarro World if they believe there is anything authentically tough about trump or he is even a mediocre businessman or negotiator. His abilities in business were fueled only by his access to the cash he inherited, credit from gullible lenders and -- his one true skill -- a well learned understanding of the bankruptcy laws.

    So much of what this administration does or doesn't do is very disturbing, but this particularly hits a nerve. So, who profits/wins when science is marginalized?

    So if I understand the GOP these days...North Korea and Russia are people to deal with and Europe and Canada are awful and screwing is? Reagan would be so pleased...

    What the hell have the conservatives done? And yes all of you are responsible for this.

    I don't understand the Euro/Canada stance, I do understand (in a twisted way) about NK/Russia: keep your enemies closer. Of course, it's Trump and he f*s up anything he touches......

    He isn't keeping his enemies closer he is actually befriending them.

    We hate our allies. We separate children from parents. We remove scientists and introduce gobblygook religion into policies. We remove all standards to keep people safe, like our drinking water. We want women powerless and without control over their bodies. Now we want anyone with a pre existing condition to again be denied coverage. All while cupping the balls of Russia.
    This isn’t the place I want to live.

    Yeah they seem to really want Justin to react and start a war. Justin isn’t a child, though

    Meanwhile Trump is going to fellate the Italian Prime Minister (who is Trump Lite) cause he agreed on Russia. Be proud conservatives!

    I forget which senator posted that picture and made a comment on Twitter about it, but it somehow found its way into my timeline yesterday.

    So I read some of the replies to it. Whoooahboy were the Trumpeters in full Kool-Aid mode replying. They were all "look how strong our president is, defying the pleas of these other countries."

    "Conservatives" need a war. They need something to jerk off to, as separating brown kids from their parents, erasing health care for poor folk (including whites), eroding social programs, tax cuts for the rich, and fascist speeches just aren't getting their d*cks hard like it used to. They demand blood! And none of this "Iraq War" bull****, needs to be some mud on the boots conflicts.

    It's pretty simple. Destroy all the long-term strategic, economic, political and military alliances the US has with its allies around the world, especially those with the European Union. Thereby leaving the US isolated, and those other countries fragmented and weakened. Ultimate goal would be the dissolution of NATO.


    Nothing Putin and the Russians would like better. And Trumpy is enabling that. But, he has no ties to Putin and Russia. None at all.

    And a lot of you idjits voted for him to do it. Burn the whole thing down and all. Happy you got your wish?
