Compared to 10%. The deficit is almost gone. Uninsured rates have plummeted.

What more do people want? For Obama to be Christian as well?

Why is that a good thing? America's - nay, most of the world's - state is extremely grim.

It's like neither campaign is acknowledging that the leader is leading because he can get away with ANYTHING since he won't apologize. That's like, the fundamental of Trump's campaign. And here you have two dimwits doing exactly that, within the last hour or so.
I'd rather a man admit something he did was wrong than waltz through life like nothing matters.

so ... some musings i'm hearing from some of my more political friends.

Trump may well win the nomination. the establishment will nod and applaud and then not lift a finger to help him in the general. all that will be left to the PACs, who are free to bankrupt themselves. there is worry about particularly vulnerable GOP senators (Ayotte, Kirk, Portman), so all the RNC funding and muscle will go towards defending their seats. retaining control of the Senate is more important than 4-8 years of a Trump presidency, which is an unlikely prospect anyway, no matter Bernie or Hillary. it will also allow those in charge of the party to remain in power. a Trump presidency would likely involve a leadership purge of the GOP.

essentially, if Trump is the nominee, the RNC wants to intentionally lose this go-around in order to give the party 4 years to obstruct and lay out plans to defeat Hillary in 2020.

I don't think it's nonsense at all. The GOP knows they really don't have a good shot at the WH. Rubio is maybe their best shot as he's "establishment" which is a stupid synonym for "electable".

Honestly I wish the Dems would focus more on congress/senate versus so much on the Presidency. While it's so important (for us progressives) to have the executive power, think of what this country could have done without so much obstruction.

And I am all for checks and balances, but we're not at that. It's strictly NO NO NO NO NO
