Yeah, but here's the thing: INTELLIGENT politicians, with university, CIA and Pentagon backgrounds are saying the same thing.

Latest news: Now John McCain has joined on in a signed open-letter expressing Trump's danger to domestic and international policy:
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/04/us/politics/gop-foreign-policy-figures-denounce-donald-trumps-worldview.html?src=twr

Of course, that plays right into Trump-fans Henry VI "First thing we do is kill all the lawyers" view that "Yeah, all those fatcat politicians WOULD say that about him, because they know they're scared of him!", which is severely, frighteningly, and willfully missing the point.
One of the things Trump does not understand about politics, is that the very word means persuading people on your side to work with you, or nothing ever gets done. And he's rapidly using up that potential goodwill from his own party by the minute, putting his very ability to be nominated at the conventions in jeopardy. Don, there's more to a campaign than "win-win-win at the polls".

(And we can almost forgive McCain for his stinging condemnation of the Tea Party's obstinacy and Congressional budget-shutdowns, although, as Jon Stewart pointed out, who started it all by picking the crazy-lady as his running mate in the first place?: "You don't get to complain that there are gremlins in the Republican party, when you're the one who gave them the After-Midnight All-You-Can-Eat Buffet.")

I am really enjoying these weekly political soap operas from the candidates. Btw, my favorite character is Trump. Hope he wins in the next episode of this series. Oh, wait this is real life..fuck it..still voting for him.

And besides, so we vote for a crazy paranoid with a GoodFellas personality and too much of a sense of his own political "destiny" toward our enemies, who knows how to bully the press and play the cheap-patriotism populist card into runaway phenomenon popularity...What's the worst that could happen?

The thing about foreign policy is that I don't like ANY candidate's policy on the matter, and the ones that seem to have it right are looking more and more like they are out of the race. His domestic policy seems worrisome, but as people have pointed out, he hasn't been clear and has avoided discussing that yet. When the time comes to unveil his plans in detail, that's when his campaign could be in danger. I think that's what has the party worried.

Mitt Romney is one of the worst candidates they ever put forth. Why does anyone care about his opinion?

At least Trump is honest. He might be an asshole but hes an honest asshole.

Well, even the "honesty"'s a bit in question when we still haven't resolved the Heard-of-KKK issue, whether the government is "keeping" his tax records secret (Fat Tony who?), and...I mean, at least Romney was Mitt's real name!

something to read up on??

>Avoiding bankruptcy wasn’t the goal when 37-year-old Romney established Bain Capital in 1984. With the encouragement of Bill Bain himself, Romney and two other Bain & Co. consultants set out to apply his mentor’s philosophy to private equity, making companies more valuable by increasing efficiency and finding new markets. Until his departure, Romney reportedly held all of Bain Capital’s stock and made a fortune by participating in the firm’s deals.

anyone remember about Romney's stock in Bain?

It's a scary day when Donald Trump can make even Mitt Romney sound sane.

Romney makes valid points but did everyone forget 4 years ago Romney sought and received endorsement from Trump. They were BFFs back then. What changed? lol

The Republican party fears Trump, not because he's an ass, but because he's threatening to rock the comfy, cushy money lined boat that the Republican politicians have enjoyed riding in for decades. Frankly, I hope he capsizes their boat, so that the dirty money these politicians have been accepting from lobbyists from giant corporations and their lobbyists, will float around them in the water, exposing how dirty Mitt Romney and his Republican political cronies really are.

The point is, Mitt Romney and his Republican hypocrites can act all dignified and act like they have morals, but they don't. They're just as crooked and deceptive as Trump. It's just that Trump is not in their club, and he's rocking their boat. A vote for Trump is a vote to capsize their money boat.


This is the Reader's Digest version of what I wrote earlier. Sorry for that wall of text from before... I kind of got carried away... Heh...
