I'm not sure how we got this far with all the morons.

I call BS.

Trumpers are perfectly happy with Trump. The only thing they're worried about is they will soon have Biden as president.

"He blew it," Dudley said, not mincing words as he assessed Trump's first term. "We were so excited in the beginning. A businessman to run our country like a business and it hasn't happened."

Actually that's EXACTLY what happened, Do-right. He ran it looks he runs all of his businesses.

Maybe the US Gov't SHOULDN'T be run like a business...?

I can't wait to hear all the people that are shocked that Trump is behaving this way. Who could have seen this coming?

Everyone paying attention, of course.

Despite a lot of derp from both pro-Trump and anti-Trump morans, he had nothing to do with the rise in the stock market.

Trump didn't run America like a business. He ran the country like one of his failed businesses. Nobody saw that coming.

Right. This guy wanted a corporate state, and he's only upset because it's failing.

I'd argue that he did run it like a business.  A penny stock "pump and dump" business.  Sure, it's terrible and will cause financial ruin for many.  But a few got filthy rich and have no regerts.

You wanted a businessman.  You got a businessman.

I think some businessmen would make for a decent president if they aren't trustfund kids that bankrupted multiple businesses and have to depend on foreign governments for securing loans.
 
2020-07-03 11:01:39 AM  
The stock market was doing just fine without Trump's help.  Yeah his tax breaks juiced it a bit but imagine what it would have done if he just left it alone and didn't throw in a few trade wars and pick fights with some of the titans of industry and left it to its own devices.

This drives me up the wall, because no one ever says this in response to this statement.

Ummmm...businesses aren't democracies, so why would you want a democratic government run like a business. Same thing with wanting a military leader, the military is a straight up dictatorship so no, I don't want a general in charge of civilian government.

Anyone saying any of these things doesn't know how the government, a business, or the military is actually run.

Trump is running the country like a business. The only problem is, he's running it like how ran all of his previous ones.

John Dudley, a retired banker, proudly cast his ballot for Donald Trump in 2016, excited at the prospect of sending an entrepreneur to the White House on a pledge to change Washington.

"Entrepreneur?"

The only major reason why businesses appear to be as successful as they are is because in America businesses have successfully privatized profits and socialized risk.

Having a self-described businessman as most powerful public servant in the nation is an absolutely terrible idea. A public servant needs to be able to think of others before themselves and by definition a self-described leader of business is incapable of that.

Well, he did give the market a sugar rush with tax cuts and the way the Coronavirus relief bill was structured. The $4T money shot for Wall Street made sure that people knew, no matter how bad it got, they would be bailed out by big government.

Running a government is also 1000x times more complicated than running a business.  There is little to nothing other than public speaking that would prepare an executive to run the federal government of the United States.

And don't you forget it.

You're just a few Biden-isms away from that happening.

Also, Biden has some tough questions he had better get ready to answer. Like, "Democrats have run the cities where the 'Defund the Police' movements have sprung up for 5 or more decades. Are you in favor of 'defunding the police'?" He can't answer that with some weird rambling gaff. He needs a coherent on point answer. Or, he'll just drive those guys right back into the arms of Mr. LAW & ORDER.

Actually, democratic republic governments use Robert's Rules, which can be a slow and painful process. A lot of corporations are run using Robert's Rules as well, as they need to follow a protocol and have a record of proceedings.
Trump tries to run government like he runs his businesses, which is autocratically, which is why he likes other fascists.

/ Hopefully, this can  put the nail in the coffin with this old chestnut. I remember that at least in my lifetime that they pushed that idea in 1996 with Steve Forbes. I due think that if  they had ran Jon Huntsman in 2012 in would have  been a tighter race than Binder's of women Romney. Yet, it would interesting who he would chose as a veep. I mean the credentials would be  better than with  Romney with his hedge fund background.
/ The nail in the coffin should be with Trump having multiple failures in  business and  the stench of  being a  nouveau riche vulgarian . Yet, we Americans truly don't have a strong learning curve for awhile now

You're right. Hoover was a self-made businessman and nothing bad happened to the economy on his watch.

If I recall correctly, 90% of businesses fail so saying the government should be run like a business is pretty silly.  Moreover, this worship of businessmen is foolish and dangerous.  Businessmen are not gods deserving of adoration.

I've had discussions with some people who think that he won't make it to the inauguration. I'm on the fence.

If he makes it to the election and loses...he will resign and then Pence will pardon him like Ford did Nixon. A key will be afterward if Trump and others (maybe others receive the pardon too) stay in the US since there is no hiding from some state charges.

The other scenario- he resigns before the election so someone else can be the nominee and Pence pardons him then.

There is more and more 'chatter' out of the White House about his mental state and health. One of my co-workers thinks this is how they grease the skids and use that as the reasoning going forward.

I find guys like this frustrating. He is educated, probably well read on current events for the entirety of his life. He has evaluated talent and character all his life in his hiring/firing decisions, not to mention lending and investment. This man is a critical thinking person (as demonstrated in his recent musings).

How on earth did he NOT come to this conclusion immediately in 2016? How much better was any POTUS going to do with the economy than where it was in Summer 2016?? Its not like it was begging for a new direction.

I just don't get it.

No, YOU blew it.  There was ample evidence that the person you were voting for was an idiot that couldn't run a banana stand.  Fark you and your regret.  I mean, I'm glad you realized it, but good lord you must have been as dumb as a crate of anvils to not know it in 2016.

Except that it not.

It's not even where it was in February. And that meager move is now threatened by a CV19 that is resurgent.

But if a seasoned government legislator was around, the pandemic wouldve been handled better and the economic prospects for The Markets could undergo a proper recovery based on some realistic scenarios.

The misconception here is that trump* was a businessman to begin with. His own father picked his older beatnik son over him and settled on donnie* when his firstborn couldn't hack it.

trump* failed in nearly every venture of his own, relying on his lack of conscience and moral bankruptcy to swindle money from his father and lenders until he achieved national notoriety as a pretend businessman on a reality TV show. 

So when people believed trump* was a success in any of his endeavors back in 2016, and all Hilldog Hate found purchase, the hustler begged, borrowed, and stole the election, which might have been interfered with by a foreign government.

Most of the country did not vote for this idiot. And those who fell to the right from the fence won't do so again.

Unless they want to see him finish the job.
