Sure. You're saying this now, but I'll wait until you have your resident Trump Whisperers downplaying shiat again. Probably will be within a day or so.

Short of a recession, he'll win 2020. Nothing has changed. Amehricans are too comfortable and seem to dislike all of the Democrats on the teevee because they're pussies. Same shiat, different year. If we had a rodeo clown up there on stage that would whip his penis out in the middle of a question about the Afghan war and just "tell it like it is", we'd probably have a chance. The only thing you can count on Americans to do is fail over and over again.

No farking shiat New York Times. Why don't you publish another shiatty Bret Stevens article about it

It's like, as soon as the US put a wannabe despot in charge, the authoritarians became emboldened.

What a weird coincidence.

This is one of the main reasons that I am supporting Pete Buttigieg so strongly. He's the only candidate who has assembled a brain trust of over 100 foreign policy experts (source). He's the only candidate with an entire foriegn policy doctrine. Watch it here! That's what I want my next president to sound like.

I apologize to anyone that I am annoying by pushing Pete so hard. I'm doing it because I think we are at a critical point in history, and I believe he is the most capable of dealing with the coming challenges. The fact that he'll actually be alive in 2055 to see the results of his work doesn't hurt, either.

Hillary won by 5 million votes. Maybe this time Warren will win by 10. Eventually Trump will piss off so many people the electoral college won't even save him.

You are right, nothing has changed.  No upgrades whatsoever to our voting security.  You have the experts on capitol hill saying Chinese hackers are the largest threat.  So you have to ask yourself: in the middle of a trade war with China, who do the Chinese want to see win the US election the most ?

Maybe they can start putting stuff like this on page A4 or A2. Of course, it wouldn't go on the front page, that is reserved for wall-to-wall coverage of Hillary indictments over email servers.

I hate going on learning journeys with morons. Gee, maybe listen to others ahead of time and don't make the entire country wait while you slowly learn the lesson obvious to thinking people on day 1. So frustrating.

Think of all the books and articles to come in the future explaining how trump supporters / politicians had a slow awakening to the reality of Donald Trump, just like Joe Walsh the other day.

Great, glad you're no longer following Trump.... so can we talk about the root of the issue that led your supreme self-righteousness? And the fact you still think all of these policies a lying man like Trump pushed are still valid policies?

In the end you'll see the repentant Trumpers learned nothing of value, they only learned it hurts them to associate with someone as obviously bad as Trump. That'll be their take-away - find a different fascist to follow.

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.  You better believe there will be a shoring up of institutions as if an armed terrorist had invaded the place and killed and raped and burned.  Never again.

It will not be pretty and it will not be quick.  And worse, for Farkers, feelings will be hurt.  The power of the president will not consist of ucases, bulls, or decrees.   There will be limits on the Senate majority leader.  There will be a de-nazification program.

Kick the SOB out and change all the locks.

That would be great. A lot of my liberal friend's initial reactions to Warren were along the lines of "I don't like her personality", so I think she's farked. Biden is ahead in the polls by 10-15 points pretty consistently (https://www.realclearpolitics.com/ep​ol​ls/latest_polls/democratic_nomination_​polls/) and we don't know that Warren gets Sander's votes if Sanders drops or vice versa. Biden is Hillary Redux, and she won the presidency in 2016, so I guess we're okay after all.

Trump: Why is our job to maintain peace in the world? Other countries should chip in. They've been taking advantage of us bigly.

Reality: America ... will never again play the same leadership role internationally that it did before Trump.

"No U.S. leadership is leaving a vacuum," said Thornton. We'll see what gets sucked into it.

Basicly the US election will be decided by whether China or Russia has better hackers.

FML.

Sorry.  I revise my original statement.  Something has changed.  China is potentially more interested than Russia in the outcome of the upcoming elections.

China will interfere and Trumpers will dig up the Maddow clip where Hillary "asked China to hack Trump's tax returns", and they'll suddenly be super concerned with statements like that made by politicians and label it a crime.

But trump will still have been joking when he said it to Russia. Because at the end of the day, Republicans are generally dishonest cretins.

At this point, what difference does it make? China has the upper hand; and Russia did all the heavy lifting.

I really thought Jill could win it.  We needed someone to challenge the establishment.  Both sides are exactly the same anyway.  Other countries can look after themselves.  Look, they're just going to waste the money, so lower taxes means they can do less damage.  People build private libraries and charity hospitals all the time.

Happens.  In the "Janet Jackson" soup bowl, all I heard from the middle of the first quarter until the Pats roared back and Vinatieri finally gave them the win was a seriously drunk and shrill fellow party guest screaming to anyone who'd listen, and all of us who wouldn't listen as well:

"Vinatieri was /PAID/"  "Vinatieri was bought and paid for, he threw the goddamn game"

Yack yack yack for like an hour.  At least she was fun to wind up.  Every few minutes someone would say within earshot:

"Hey did you see that missed field goal in the first quarter?   Jeez how did he even miss that"
....
"HE WAS PAID OFF, HE THREW IT ON PURPOSE".

Hillary got 3 million more votes than Trump, but she didn't "win" anything. Because the people don't vote for President, the states do.

Trump could be gone tomorrow if these stubborn old dudes would stop thinking of themselves for once.  Yes, they might lose the dumbass bigot redneck ammosexual sub-60 IQ evangelical vote, but, hey, they could retire well on their own millions.
