I could speculate on any conditions she might have, but bottom line it was a poorly created speech, and poorly delivered, with not much of a message. The old guy (business partner) that was about the same time as her was really bad too.


I realize we all have bias, but what was your impression of the woman that spoke that runs the Eric Trump Charity Foundation?

I'd be curious to see if any pro-Trumpers could debate the points raised in this article without referencing Hillary.

This is Michelle Van Etten, pill peddler, with a prime time speech slot at the RNC.

I should have stayed home last night and watched that.
Riveting.

I tend to agree. Even if Trump gets McGoverned by Hillary, I think Cruz burned far too many bridges and was a shitty candidate to begin with.



Oh and Fuck Ted Cruz.

You're assuming the Republican party operates under the guise of logic.

Eh, Trump wanting to pull back from NATO unless we get paid isn't morally right, but pulling back from military interventionism is always right. There is no doubt in my mind that he'd be less of a war hawk than Clinton and if he actually means what he says on trade, that's the other plus. Everything else he "supports" is absolute garbage, mind you.

The man has principles, one has to admire that.

Quote:



Hawk Newsome cares deeply about America's presidential election.

He and other activists in the Black Lives Matter movement have this week driven all the way from New York to Cleveland to demonstrate outside the Republican National Convention, couch-surfing with friends along the way. Next week, they'll be doing the same in Philadelphia at the Democratic National Convention.

But one thing that Newsome and his friends say they won't be doing in November is voting. For anyone.

"Neither party has stepped to the front and made Black Lives Matter a priority," he says. "Hillary Clinton has the votes of millions of African Americans in her hands. But she's promoting herself. And the problem is that we are settling [for that]!"

Newsome is leading a new campaign to get African Americans to do something that few civil rights leaders have recommended: stop voting. He believes that only by withdrawing support from the major parties can black communities force politicians to address their concerns about police brutality.

He calls it "I Ain’t Voting" — and he says he’s aware that it could be seen as a rejection of the struggle that a previous generation went through.

I would argue you can see some of same traits in our current President

Vindictive

- Held a bi-partisan panel discussion on health care with Paul Ryan taking the policy lead. Came out to a press conference and dressed him down while he sat in the front row. So much for reaching across the aisle

- Didn't like Citizens United decision. Put SCOTUS on blast in front of the nation during the State of the Union.

Sycophants and yes people in his inner circle. Seems to ignore CIA and defense officials public warnings that ISIS is trying to embed itself in the refugee stream.

That's not vindictive? That's calling people out for bad decision-making? Citizens United was a horrible decision. And the Republicans had no interest in trying to be bipartisan on health care. The moment Obama came on board as being willing to embrace some, if not all, of the tenets of Romneycare, suddenly the Republicans didn't support it anymore. They were the petty, uncompromising ones here, not Obama. That's why the bill we finally got was so watered down.

1, yes, because Trump doesn't have ANY sycophants or yes men in his inner circle, right? No other politician has ever had those.

2a, is it that he's ignoring them, or more that he's trying to find ways to take down ISIS without having to endanger refugees in the process?

2b, I fail to see what that has to do with a discussion about comparisons between him and Trump.

The suggestion was to try and respond to the complaints about Trump specifically. How do those of you who support Trump here respond to the allegations and accusations about HIM that were made in that article. Don't go off on a, "Well, Obama/Hilary does it, too!" rant. This is about Trump and Trump alone.

Please, do share your thoughts. I'd be very interested to hear them, too.

A liberal publication publishes an article critical of Trump citing a disaffected Republican.

Not going to spend time on it, just as I would expect others in the forum to brush off a Breibart article critical of Hillary citing a disaffected Democrat.

I did however want to put up a mirror to Obama's behavior.
