Donald Trump: You Should Vote For Me Because, Unlike Cruz, I Can Make Deals With the Democrats; "You've Got to Be a Little Bit Establishment"

Donald Trump is that guy on Survivor who has made mutually-conflicting promises of alliances with everyone in the game.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Thursday there's nothing wrong with a little deal-making to get things done.

"You know what? There's a point at which: Let's get to be a little establishment," Trump told about 1,500 people at a rally at the Las Vegas South Point Resort and Casino. "We've got to get things done folks, OK? Believe me, don't worry. We're going to make such great deals."

...

"Guys like Ted Cruz will never make a deal because he's a strident guy," Trump said.

Trump, who has been all over the map on every issue, is now all over the map on the central argument of his candidacy.

Cruz is too strident? We have to make deals with Democrats?

Hey asshole, we have eight other candidates who agree and they're not crazy.

Incidentally, the establishment really is cottoning to Trump -- because they see him as a better alternative than the real threat to the Establishment, Ted Cruz.

22 I don't find this that shocking. Ted Cruz does tend to paint himself into corners, and has to make it understood that he will govern--although from his last clause in that statement, he intends to not give away the store, as Jebio certainly would, should they win.

Why wouldn't you? What does it harm him to do so?

He doesn't care about conservatism or America or the Constitution. Donald Trump cares about Donald Trump and he isn't going to be bothered by little things like these stupid deals about stupid things.

And if by some heart attack miracle, Trump becomes president, there's no way there's a GOP Congress. It'll go Dem. No question.

And he'll let them have whatever the hell they want.

We know Trump is is an asshole, we just don't care.

I'd happily vote for Cruz if given the chance to, but otherwise it's Trump or the Democrat - and my only fervent hope for a Trump presidency would be that it is equally as painful for the Democrats as it is for the GOPe.

That would be better than the status quo.

50 Actually.... it think he is right...

You START negotiating with a ridiculous position, and then get what you really want when you negotiate down.

Progressives are masters of this.... they have chipped away at the Constitution for generations now... chipped away at what a Right is... until we no longer really have one...

The GOPe starts negotiations with the status quo... and with TELEGRAPHING what they will NOT do (no government shut down... .)... so ANY deal moves the bar towards the Progressive side.

Trump won't do that.... he will tilt the balance by starting with the ridiculous...

'we must deport every stinking illegal in the country... NOW... and make Mexico pay for building a wall... and it'll be 1000 ft tall!!!!

What we can't do that... OK... we'll start a program to prosecute Visa overstays, and built the wall ourselves.... and you can call it a win!"


Its the F'n ART OF THE DEAL!

52 Trump is playing to win. I'm not defending him. We know what he is. I know what he is, and he is still my #1 by a long shot.

We need someone who is going upset the apple cart. He's already done that.

I do believe Trump loves America and he's the only chance we've got to have someone in the WH that does. The Dems are prepared to scorch the earth to beat every (R) and it will work on everyone but Trump - who rains thunder on them with their own stupid, slimy (but effective) tactics.

53 The GOPe is anti-Cruz even to the point of choosing Trump. Lindsey Graham said it's like choosing between "death by knife or death by gun" and choosing either one of them is bad idea because they are "both crazy".

The GOPe would like to vote Democrat this year, but I just cannot see them be willing to vote for Bernie. I predict all 535 of the Uniparty, plus their hangers-on (Steve Schmidt, Stuart Stevens, and assorted Friends Of The Blog) will be so conflicted they won't vote at all.

55 I keep saying this. Jay Cost says Mike Murphy, Bushes chief strategist, is telling Jeb and his surrogates to not attack Trump

Lott, Dole, and Hatch have all said they prefer Trump to Cruz. They dont really want Trump. The want Bush. They think if they destroy all the other candidates it forces a head to head choice between Trump and Bush. The Bushies think Bush will beat Trump.

Not. It more or less ensures Trump will prevail. Mike Murphy has enraged Cost and the NRO and John Podhoritz of the NYPost who all prefer Rubio.

They want to make Jeb stop attacking Rubio because they think Rubio can beat Trump, Cruz and Clinton

so these "endorsements" are theater. They are playing a game

The one thing he's been consistent on is NOT giving specifics. He is going to have to do that at some point.

75 Trump/Cruz can undo some of what Obama wrought without help from Congress, but our next President is going to have to "hondle" Congress to get the US back on course. Veto anything that's omnibus to force manageable spending bills that can be cut. Ryan may be an ally.

The real challenge is McConnell who, if you don't stop him,will use the excuse of not having a filibuster proof 60 Senate majority to let Chuck Schumer run things the way that Harry Reid has.

I don't see Cruz as being as effective at this as Trump will, but Your Mileage May Vary.

Your thinking checkers... they are playing chess.
To they extent they're suddenly hugging him it's because they think it'll hurt him. Notice the nearly simultaneous attacks\hugs on both of them from different wings. One has to go after march 1, they don't care which, and they'll been largely unsuccessful with trump up till now.

I don't think he is a bad man. He seems to be a really good father. He is devoted to his children and they all seem to love their father. They all seem to be hard workers and responsible adults. Not the Paris Hilton or Kardashian types you'd expect to see from kids that grew up with a lot of money

***************************

I really don't understand the hate for a guy whose mere presence in the race assured us that we wouldn't get another Bush nominee and has been the rising tide that lifted Cruz's own campaign, despite the smackdowns he's giving him now.

A lot of the negative reactions to Trump seems to be the result of quotes taken out of context or not reading between the lines. It doesn't bother me that Trump stated he would have to make deals. That's just a fact of life in politics. He's pointing out that Cruz wasn't able to get much traction going for conservative policies in Congress because he pisses everyone off, and he has a valid point.

Trump also said these deals would be GREAT deals, as in, they would favor the conservative side. Whether we believe him or not is another story, but I don't see why his statements here should be construed as un-conservative or conflicting.

153 We are so not used to seeing someone on our side who has one goal in mind - winning - that it seems strange to us.

All we've had for too long are backstabbing losers. We know they're lying to us, or we at least feel it. Like Romney being a "severe conservative". We take the lies and we hope against hope they won't make us look too bad and maybe will overcome the media and win. Then if they win, we hope they won't screw us, and they do. No matter their bonafides before we voted.

The Republican brand has been damaged by both sides and the media uses this to take down anyone associated with it. They do not have this advantage with Trump. He is untarnished by the brand and it's killing them.

He also fights dirty just like them. He is a scrapper and media master on par with Breitbart. You only have to watch him to see it. Even our "conservatives" are way way too nice, and only leave us wondering in the end about their allegiances.

154 Am listening to Rush, based on advice in lower thread.

He quoted a 28 yr old guy who said (at least how I interpreted it) that the Dems are fringe (LBGT, weirdos, socialists), and the GOP...old white guys (?). Ok. So he feels that Trump is offering a new trajectory for country. Ok.

The thing I like about Trump is his financing his own campaign, not beholding to the lobby's, not scratching the backs of K street. He owes no donors for favors. So he is free to say we need a wall and we need to stop moose limbs right now. He is free to discuss the extermination of Christians in the Middle East. He is free, which makes him not on guard for making a yuge mistake by being "raciss" or whatever.

This said, knowing that no man is perfect, no President is going to make everyone happy.

I do want a President who scares our enemies, home and abroad. Panic (as Rush is discussing now). Why? Welp, I am blonde but think it is they are afraid of their own jobs on K street, their sudden lack of importance with their puppet strings.

On the flip side: I think Trump is not going to want to fail. I think he will choose his cabinet wisely. If he scares people, good. xoxo

Plus, for whatever reason, moderate voters like hearing about bipartisanship, and I think Trump is starting to look ahead to the general election.

The problem is, our current Republican leadership are not negotiating effectively. I trust Trump more than anyone else to once again shift the"overton window", and perhaps have Dems conceding ground (and browbeating RINOs as well).

Liberalism is an aesthetic identity based on conformity to a certain type of speech, dress, and anti-consumptive consumption based on being self-abasing and thinking of others first. It was developed by socialists to trick Americans into rejecting capitalism. It's memetic. It's obvious just by looking at a person and talking to them for (say it with me, sickos) seven seconds whether they're liberal or not.

Donald Trump is not a member of that church, friend. He's just not. So you can attack him on all of his perfectly obvious flaws, but you can't call him a socialist.

Trump is going all out to KO Cruz in Iowa. Nothing personal, it's business. If Cruz doesn't win in Iowa, his chances drop. If Cruz doesn't win any of the early primaries, he'll fade and Trump's poll numbers will go up.

Cruz won't be as effective as Trump in winning critical swing states.

175 55 I keep saying this. Jay Cost says Mike Murphy, Bushes chief strategist, is telling Jeb and his surrogates to not attack Trump

Lott, Dole, and Hatch have all said they prefer Trump to Cruz. They dont really want Trump. The want Bush. They think if they destroy all the other candidates it forces a head to head choice between Trump and Bush. The Bushies think Bush will beat Trump.

Not. It more or less ensures Trump will prevail. Mike Murphy has enraged Cost and the NRO and John Podhoritz of the NYPost who all prefer Rubio.

They want to make Jeb stop attacking Rubio because they think Rubio can beat Trump, Cruz and Clinton

so these "endorsements" are theater. They are playing a game

Exactly. In the 1990s we had a lot of compromise and things. Neither side was 100% satisfied but both sides were at least somewhat content. Same in the 80s.

In the 2010s though it's been Dems getting everything and Reps (or better yet conservatives) getting nothing.

If Trump can take us bak to the 80s or 90s version of compromise, I say fantastic.

guy who made his millions doing deals with the government is a part of
the K Street crowd, I know it. Trump has been excusing his donations to
various liberal pols over the years including Hillary as just doing
deals. What do you think K Street is exactly? It's buying influence.
That's what Trump does.

The whole point of his campaign is that the "serious thinkers" of US politics don't fucking get it, and he's reaching out to the majority of the non-voting population and saying "vote for me and you won't just be wasting your vote."

200 I'm old enough to remember when Ronald Reagan and Tip O'Neill cut deals over drinks. Trump isn't trying to impress the DC donor class, he's hunting for votes. Reagan was effective because he had the ability to bypass the MSM and GOPe and make his pitch directly to the people. It didn't hurt that he spent his entire working life in front of a camera.

I'm not worried about Trump. He's a solid private-sector guy. If you're a top-tier real-estate developer in the Northeast, then cutting deals with local, state, and federal bureaucrats is part of the daily routine. That's the system. That's how things get done. It doesn't mean he -likes- the system. Dems love that money pipeline. Trump has the experience and possibly the will to break it down to the point where people throughout the country can enjoy life without the government's regulatory iron boot on their necks.

212 Cruz was "for" everything on the globalist checklist until he decided to adopt Trump's platform about a month ago. We are talking about a guy who defended Chinese companies that were sued for stealing intellectual property from US companies. He wanted massive increases in legal immigration and basically still does. He pushed TPA for years, until he saw it was hurting his campaign. He proposed granting work permits to all illegals and then later lied when he said it was a "poison pill" amendment. The video tells us otherwise.

It's an attempt at humor. You see "Trump isn't a conservative" is a frequent argument used against him. My joke was "the proof is he is willing to make deals with the Republicans." This implies that the Republican establishment isn't conservative either.

As to LIB, no, not really. I think there is a good chance of it though because the establishment types have been forgetting some things - they get the "noblesse" part down real well, they just have forgotten there is an "oblige" as well.

247 I don't support or like Trump, but I hold out this hope: The Establishment assures themselves they can coopt him, when maybe he'll coopt the establishment - just as he has shifted the bounds of national conversation for months. If only a small-government conservative had that power.

I'm right there with Cruz on most issues, and I think the squishes' dislike for him is a sign of his doing something right - but he has a very poor record of convincing even fellow Republicans to stand with him. Is that because they suck? Yes, in part, but a better leader might rally some of them. When has Cruz persuaded anyone who wasn't already on his side?

248 Limbaugh was right, establishment is attacking the two front runners.

The GOP has reached Stage 5 of the grieving process with Trump. They are at Stage 2 with Cruz.

Odd that mean, "Satanic" Ted Cruz is the only candidate whose campaign hasn't devolved to insults and name-calling.

Trump says he wants to "expand" ObamaCare to include "the companies", by which I think he means making ObamaCare something like Medicare Part D, and he says he will readily make deals with the Uniparty socialists in Congress and in the Donor Class.

Cruz says he won't make those deals, and that's what the GOPE says about him, which is why they hate him with a burning fire.

266 All we've had for too long are backstabbing losers. We know they're lying to us, or we at least feel it. Like Romney being a "severe conservative". We take the lies and we hope against hope they won't make us look too bad and maybe will overcome the media and win. Then if they win, we hope they won't screw us, and they do. No matter their bonafides before we voted.

I'm dealing with a very similar situation at work. It's very dysfunctional here. A prominent software development manager made a BS promise that everyone knew they couldn't keep. And, here's the frustrating part, everyone went along with it.

"Now that we know X is going to happen by Y date, let's make plans A, B, and C which all hinge on X." When I spoke up during planning and pointed out everyone in the room knew X wouldn't happen by Y date, or even Y date + a month, everyone looked at me as I'd just taken a dump on the conference table, then proceeded with the plans.

Also, it's not just me imagining things when I say everyone knew this manager couldn't keep her promise. In private conversations multiple people laughed about her promise and acknowledged it was beyond ridiculous.

330 "This is just confirmation that conservatives have failed miserably in teaching conservatism."

My variant thesis is that the GOP establishment have promiscuously and inaccurately applied the label of "conservatism" for so long that the word is now semantically meaningless. It has ceased to have any actual connotation of, or connection to, classical conservative thought.

I give you three examples drawn from life:

(a) Mitt Romney, who banned scary black rifles with shoulder things that go up, who enacted the Obamacare prototype into law, and who ran for the Senate against Ted Kennedy _from Kennedy's left_, referring to himself as "severely conservative".

(b) George W. Bush pushing "compassionate conservatism", the agenda of which was indistinguishable in practice from the agenda of his fellow Texan, Lyndon Baines Johnson. (Bush even threw in starting a poorly conceptualized war in Asia to make the LBJ parallel exact. Remember when conservatives argued for staying _out_ of wars except with clear attainable goals in mind?)

(c) Lyin' Ryan saying it was a "conservative victory" that his latest omnibus budget got rid of the Cadillac taxes which Obamacare was about to levy on Big Labor health plans. Uh, reducing the self-inflicted pain of Obamacare for a key Democratic constituency is now somehow conservative? Riiiiiiiiiight.

336 ***"I'm right there with Cruz on most issues, and I think the squishes'
dislike for him is a sign of his doing something right - but he has a
very poor record of convincing even fellow Republicans to stand with
him. Is that because they suck? Yes, in part, but a better leader might
rally some of them. When has Cruz persuaded anyone who wasn't already on
his side?"***


This is a damn fine critique of Cruz. If he had a bit more of Rubio's rhetorical style, he'd be gold. He may not be perfect, but I really do like that Cruz fights. Right now though, I just don't see good leadership qualities or ability to manipulate opinion. Expressing conservative doctrine isn't hard and Cruz can do it fairly well, but he's just not strong enough in persuasive ability right now.

If Yeb! is effectively gone after IA/NH/SC, and Rubio's numbers are kept very low, then Trump will have made his contribution. Yeb! probably cannot drop out before a humiliation in FL. Rubio will certainly hang on almost forever since the desperation of the "establishment" is empowered with vast resources. And with Yeb! out, the desperation will resemble Germany in March 1945.

If it's just Teh Donald and Cruz after Super Tuesday (effectively, anyway), then we have made one tiny immensely difficult step. Like daily stock price changes, almost impossible to attribute specific outcomes to specific causes, but Trump will almost certainly have helped side-line Yeb! and Rubio.

After the tiny step, the fantasy for rational, intelligent voters would be a nasty bidding war between Trump and Cruz over restoring the rule of law in immigration, in all respects. Probably just a fantasy. But without Trump/Cruz as the two last standing, there's no possibility of such a beneficial bidding war on any policy area.

IMO this is one of the things the NR types are missing. They are thinkers and writers and theorists. The American people don't care much about thinkers; on the contrary, they value doers. Trump, for all his faults, has a long track record of getting things done and I think that's one of the reasons that his base doesn't give a crap about Trump's flips and flops.

The other issue that I think NR is missing is that you can't reason someone out of a position that he didn't reason himself into and a lot of Trump's support is emotionally based.

I think that while there is a germ of truth here, the GOP in DC is not as conservative as many would like and hasn't delivered, it is also largely a situation of circumstances. The makeup of Congress and the people matter whether we like it or not. When Obama had veto proof majorities in Congress and the overwhelming support of the public, what did people think was going to happen? Some new conservative renaissance?

For the last few years it has been fighting on defense, not always very well (bye Boehner) but the idea that Obama has gotten everything he wants lately is just not true.

No matter who wins if it is a Republican this time they will likely be working with a Republican Congress. They damn well better get things done. If you can't win with a stacked deck you really suck.

Lots of Republicans in DC didn't support Reagan. He got quite a bit done with their support as I recall. If Cruz wins, they will also do his bidding.

408 An interesting thing about "conservatism" is that to me it is a misleading label. I think most of us are more what G.K. Chesterton described as Traditionalist.

Conserving just means you kind of want to preserve the status quo. The status quo at this point is a hot mess. Most of us want to roll back a lot of the crap that is the status quo these days.

Traditionalist, as described by Chesterton at least, always fit my outlook better. Going with the things that are proven over the years and using them, while not hesitating to go for something new, while still being aware of unintended consequences.

I realize that some of you will argue that labels do not matter, but I think words and how we frame our ideas do matter.

If Cruz were to get the nomination, his negatives will go up a lot in the general. I don't see him winning swig states unless the Dems pick someone unelectable, which they might,

Conserving just means you kind of want to preserve the status quo. The status quo at this point is a hot mess. Most of us want to roll back a lot of the crap that is the status quo these days.

I also trust him to kick hillary and bernie's ass up and down the stage in a debate.

483 The Dems have reached their evolutionary dead end, the Venezuela solution so desired by Bernie and mostly parroted by Me Too Hillary.

The GOPe has similarly reached their end point, which is a cradle to grave nanny state, wisely run by them and their cronies. This is very similar in nature to the Dem ideal and can never be admitted, so they throw up some smoke and mirrors occasionally to act like they are resisting.

I'll believe there is a change in DC when fisticuffs in Congress are a common event and a bloody nose is a badge of commitment.

484 Right or wrong ( I think wrong but I understand) that you don't see the amount of conservative legislation we would like is that they won't even make an attempt if they know it will just be vetoed. It's my opinion you should make the President veto his ass off because it will eventually give you leverage. With a Republican president that dynamic will change and you will see cooperation. For as long as we retain Congress. I don't think it will be long though since the next President and his party will be blamed for Obama's stinky underwear covered in crap that he leaves behind.

If the next President is able to turn us around in their first term, they would have to go down as one of the best ever.

Cruz can't be trusted either. He's the best candidate the establishment has ever produced, but he's still establishment. The standard big money donors, and flip-flop on my key issues.

Just because he wears nice looking sweaters and has a calmer public demeanor than Trump doesn't make him more trustworthy.

For the record, I would gladly vote for him if Trump doesn't win it, every candidate has their warts.

Which led to Reagan getting repeatedly rolled by O'Neill, in debacles such as the 1983 TEFRA bill (leftists still bleat to this very day that "Reagan raised taxes eleventy!") and the 1986 Simpson-Mazzoli amnesty package.

A whole lot of the failure of the purported "Reagan Revolution" to roll back Fedzilla was because Reagan was a gentleman whose word was his bond, and Reagan negotiated in that good-faith spirit with O'Neill, who was a cynical Bowelston ward-heeler whose personal promises were meaningless.

This is what I've been saying for a while now: Trump is the reality show candidate. He knows how to play that game better than any of the others. This is a reality show culture, so its working. It appeals to voters today in a way that it would not even 8 years ago.

And at this point, who is in that office is really only significant in how fast it all falls apart, now whether or how.

ot, here's a good piece over at legal insurrection

National Review Special Issue against phony conservative ... Newt Gingrich

http://ow.ly/XpGR0

excerpt

The issue I have with the Special Issue is it smacks of top-down condescension, of an intellectual elite telling people what they must believe to be true conservatives.

It's the opposite of the method I adhered to when I was in private law practice and I teach my students. People don't like being told what to think; it often creates the opposite result. More important is to provide the facts and reasoning that lead people to the conclusion you want. That way they own the decision and embrace it.

I agree with this assessment by Ben Shapiro:


Now, I have my own biases on this issue - this week alone, I've characterized Trump as the establishment pick over Ted Cruz, slammed Trump for his establishment-style attacks on Cruz, and stated that he has "no central guiding values other than his own glorification." And I agree with virtually everything written about Trump in this National Review special edition.

But I still think the National Review issue does Trump more good than harm.

Here's the reason: instead of allowing the building groundswell of anti-Trump commentary to consolidate organically, National Review forced the issue to "get on the record." They made the resistance to Trump look astroturfed by an intellectual elite. They gave Trump cannon fodder for his disenchanted base, which rightly feels disrespected by conservative thinkers.

559 This is why Trump bothers the hell out of me. Who here honestly thinks
he won't just legalize 10 million illegal immigrants 'to make america
great again' so that we could complete 'a great deal'?


This is also my greatest worry. Nixon to China. He knows he'll be lauded by the press and lionized by historians like Beschloss if he does it, so for him it's a great deal. For the rest of the country.....

Ace is an apostate liberal who left because he can't stand their BS. A lot of the bedrock conservative principles are foreign to him. For example, ask him where rights come from. Most conservatives and the founders would say rights come from the divine and are inherent as part of your humanity. Ace would say rights are granted by government.

Yeah. And because Trump has gotten through to the great non-voting LIV huddled masses, he doesn't even need us. He'd love to have us, but he can tack to the center and pick off 20% of the demo contingent while attracting new voters.

I found out the other day my roommate's parents have never voted (I quickly explained to him that he was a cancer on our society, saying "that behavior makes you a cancer on our society") and he and his dad love Trump.

653 In the never-ending uphill battle to bring sophistication to the horde, and in light of my east coast location, and, the lateness of the thread, here is an excerpt from Majorie Rawling's 'The Sojurner':

"The earth was thirsty for snow. The winter wheat, in peril of its life, shrank in need to be covered with the soft white blanket. The snow began falling at dusk from a still and milky sky. The flakes at first were large and loose. They slapped against walls, against the boughs and trunks of trees, with the wet impact of a child's kiss. They clung, slipped, melted, and the earth for an hour or more drank them in like rain. With the sudden dark, the air turned cold, the ground stiffened, the snow gathered itself together in compact crystals and fell hard and fast, as though the elements had had enough of softness. The sharp particles hissed against the window-panes, then settled down to a steady pelting."
------
"...with the wet impact of a child's kiss." Nice metaphor, that.

It's sort of like when our side wants to pretend we don't have to get Independent and Democrat voters in order to actually win elections. We just need grassroots conservatives to turn out.

it's a bedtime story activists tell other idiot activists.
Posted by: Carson at January 22, 2016 01:32 PM (nq/J2)

Yeah. And because Trump has gotten through to the great non-voting LIV huddled masses, he doesn't even need us. He'd love to have us, but he can tack to the center and pick off 20% of the demo contingent while attracting new voters.

I found out the other day my roommate's parents have never voted (I quickly explained to him that he was a cancer on our society, saying "that behavior makes you a cancer on our society") and he and his dad love Trump.

The flipside, I see a lot of Utah/Mormon voters that absolutely hate Trump. They disliked the muslim thing, and the mormon culture puts a premium on meekness in their leaders.

I see this as a good thing, as UT will vote red no matter what. No point in appealing to a group that are fine with Romney, Huntsman, Rubio. Though many this cycle are on board with Ted.

I love all these genius strategists.

Dumbass, let me lay this out for you:
(1) The LIV HATE Trump. His disapproval ratings are off the charts. Disapproval does not go down. Once people hate you, they hate you forever.
(2) Trump is a stalking horse for Hillary. Once his numbers are compared to the Democrat, he won't do squat to bring them up. He'll just whine and complain and give up.
(3) You say you hate being lied to but you think that Trump's on your side. He is not. He hates you. You're a mark. He's not going to be lying to the LIV, he's already lying to you.

Don't believe me? Look at his speeches: poll numbers, people who have dissed him and the emptiest of platitudes.

Posted by: troyriser at January 22, 2016 01:37 PM (Hz/9Y)

This is patently false. Jeb Bush is part of a political dynasty whose members passed no child left behind, signed off on the housing loan bill that led to the crisis, never fought cultural liberalism, and turned a blind eye to illegal immigration. You'll have to pardon me on not going back to Bush 1's presidency: I was a wee babe.

Jeb Bush has on some deep crimson robes and is waving a deep crimson flag with a gold R on it, but that does not make him a conservative. We know what we're getting with him, and it's more of the same. Marco is worse. Christie got Obama reelected. John Kasich is a lizard person.

Half, or at this point probably more than half, of Trump's appeal is the giddy feeling of falling and not knowing what you're going to land on. But he's still a better bet than any GOPe stooge. Period.

Just my opinion. But I doubt I'm alone.

715 Trump smells establishment (begrudging) support, and (it would seem) is trying to reel them in. His "tough with China" talk was already leaning toward Democrat union voters. And it is just a continuation of the "Cruz does worthless/damaging filibusters for attention" kind of attack.

It would sure be nice to know what deals he would cut. But he sees Cruz (and NR) trying to corner the conservative voter, so maybe sees that as a chance to be the hero to some of the Rubio/Jeb sad sacks.

A president leads and "bullies", but does in the end deal. Campaigning on dealing maybe works for an art of the deal guy. But doesn't sound strong to those portraying him as King Kong.

This doesn't change much for me ... I keep hoping he'll be specific on the big door in the wall, or other things. I can only go by guys like O'Reilly and Giuliani and even Jack Welch, and his kids. So I'm still with him or Cruz. Cruz also has "issues". (wanted 5 times the H1Bs, has one foot in the Goldman Sachs door, whom I consider the boss of establishment)

732 @689 - all the conservative talkers have food and gold as sponsors. I don't see why this is supposed to be a hit on Beck.

But he is against Trump and for Cruz. My read on that is he still thinks that the US is worth saving, and that it CAN be saved, and he thinks Letting it Burn is a bad thing.

A lot of us here think of Trump as a wrecking ball. That's a feature, not a bug.

Empty platitudes are at least positive ones - we are going to win, make America great, whatever.


Sure, but let me remind you Obama said the same stuff. Sure, he meant different things by those words but in 2008 he was saying make America great and we're going to win, too.

I'm not saying Trump = Obama, I'm saying empty sophistry means nothing but pleases people on an emotional level and I hate to see anyone fall for it.

Dumbass, let me lay this out for you:

(1) The LIV HATE Trump. His disapproval ratings are off the charts.
Disapproval does not go down. Once people hate you, they hate you
forever.

(2) Trump is a stalking horse for Hillary. Once his numbers are
compared to the Democrat, he won't do squat to bring them up. He'll just
whine and complain and give up.

(3) You say you hate being lied to but you think that Trump's on
your side. He is not. He hates you. You're a mark. He's not going to be
lying to the LIV, he's already lying to you.



Don't believe me? Look at his speeches: poll numbers, people who have dissed him and the emptiest of platitudes.



You are nothing more than an Obama voter. That's it. Pure white columns.

777 Cruz has sponsored and co-sponsored a large number of bills and had few made into law. First two years he was in the minority and Reid prevented a slew of bills to be voted on.

Still don't understand why you and your fellow supporters can't see through the guy--and we've seen his like before.Trump's just another in a long line of greasy, meglomaniacaldemagogues who have plagued our country since its inception.

And yet you and your fellow supporters keep ascribing to the guy qualities he doesn't possess, motives that aren't in evidence, policy positions he has never clearly ennunciated. The man's personal philosophy and guiding ideology are a mystery, but thankfully he's got you and yours to plug in the details for him.

Posted by: troyriser at January 22, 2016 01:58 PM (Hz/9Y)

798 And all you who are calling people names and being nasty have some other motive than just a difference of opinion. You're being too vehement and outright insulting for this to be about that.

This is showing an utter contempt for your fellow commenters than was partially hidden before this.

I guarantee you it will be remembered.

It makes me think of the same kind of attacks and arguments we get from the rabid elitist left like Daily Kos or Media Matters and others.

You think you're smarter, better, wiser than the rest of us and you feel entitled to preach to us to talk down to us to sermonize and lecture us.

826 I don't quite get the anger. Politicians need to do deals. Trump has a number of positions that are not orthodox conservative. His stating that he'll make deals, doesn't mean he'll fold on his central issue (as his ego is quite tied up in it), but what he can do in exchange for votes is offer some Democrats (like the black caucus) money for projects in exchange for help with something like immigration restriction, which THEIR votes already want. I don't think a Ted Cruz could do that. I don't like the bribes, and I wish we didn't need them, but choices have to be made.

848 Repost in answer to 845:
Trump/Cruz can undo some of what Obama wrought without help from Congress, but our next President is going to have to "hondle" Congress to get the US back on course. Veto anything that's omnibus to force manageable spending bills that can be cut. Ryan may be an ally.

The real challenge is McConnell who, if you don't stop him,will use the excuse of not having a filibuster proof 60 Senate majority to let Chuck Schumer run things the way that Harry Reid has.

I don't see Cruz as being as effective at this as Trump will, but Your Mileage May Vary.

884 what has Trump given us?

...words.

I'm fine with voting for Trump as a big F you to the GOPe. I'm fine with voting for him because who wins won't turn this ship around and at least he's entertaining. I'm even fine with voting for him because you figure it stops the Democrats from getting the White House again.

But I do have a problem with actually believing anything he says and falling for the cult of personality. That's just something nobody here should be dumb enough to do.

That's why I argue both sides of the issue: I always oppose the mindless cheerleading and blind worship of a politician, particularly one as soulless and venal as Trump. He's not there for you, for America, or for the future, he's there for one guy: Donald Trump.

MY preference is Cruz for President but I don't see him win the nom and the general both. He could make for a terrific ticket and administration and set him up as the favorite next time.

With Trump I know the wall will be built, there will be mass firings in the civil service and the VA will get substantially better.

The choice isn't Trump or Cruz. If Nat Review gets Trump out it will be an establishment candidate like Rubio and the wall won't get built and the VA won't be fixed and the civil service will grow.

If Cruz gets out its Trump not Jeb, Christie or Rubio.

I would take them all instead of Hillary.

Beck: Trump Has 'Makings of Adolf Hitler'

breitbart

According to Beck, if Limbaugh's analysis is accurate it spells doom for the "republic."

"I want you to listen carefully to what he is saying," Beck said. "I hope he is wrong on this because this is the biggest warning about the end of the republic I think I have ever heard coming from Rush Limbaugh."

Beck argued that those components of nationalism and populism were "the makings of Adolf Hitler," which he called "a dangerous combination."

Sure they do. Democrat negotiation and compromise:

Republicans: No. We'd love to, too, but we wouldn't be re-elected.
Democrat: How about we ban all guns that go boom?
Republicans: Um, sure, that sounds like a reasonable compromise.

Republican negotiation and compromise:

Republicans: Our constituents want us to open full faith and credit to concealed carry licenses. So let's talk about that.
Democrats: How about we ban all guns?

Posted by: troyriser at January 22, 2016 01:37 PM (Hz/9Y)"

"This is patently false. Jeb Bush is part of a political dynasty whose members passed no child left behind, signed off on the housing loan bill that led to the crisis, never fought cultural liberalism, and turned a blind eye to illegal immigration. You'll have to pardon me on not going back to Bush 1's presidency: I was a wee babe."

Bush I also was a despicable cocksucker. He signed into law such progressive bullshit as the Americans with Disability Act. He raised taxes and never slashed spending. He was pro-choice most of his life, just as Trump was, and convinced the Big Bible cretins otherwise. Bush I gave us the Clintons just as Bush II gave us Obama.

"Jeb Bush has on some deep crimson robes and is waving a deep crimson flag with a gold R on it, but that does not make him a conservative. We know what we're getting with him, and it's more of the same. Marco is worse. Christie got Obama reelected. John Kasich is a lizard person."

Jeb primarily has a white flag to wave. His investors didn't know even that simple task was above his pay grade. Marco is a lifelong hustler with a knack for selling favors, taking bribes and associating with criminals. Christie is a big fat idiot. Kasich is what everyone on stage is without the Sy Fy network make up.

"Half, or at this point probably more than half, of Trump's appeal is the giddy feeling of falling and not knowing what you're going to land on. But he's still a better bet than any GOPe stooge. Period."

Truer words. Someone has to be either retarded or insane to think any of the others, including even Cruz, isn't more of the same.

Just my opinion. But I doubt I'm alone.

I do give him credit for extending the Overton window except not the traditional definition of that window. Normally this is taken to mean the range of ideas that the PUBLIC is willing to accept in public discourse.
He extended the range of ideas that pundits and politicians were willing to talk about (even if it was just to say how terrible they were) but the public was already there.
He still deserves credit for this and for telling the PC police to fuck off.

No. You don't have a right to talk down to people.

You do have a right to disagree and I never said that.

Disagreeing doesn't mean you demean the other person because of the opinion they hold.

You yourself just labeled us as gullible and said you hope we come to our senses. That isn't talking down to someone?

I don't believe some of you all realize what you're saying. You're so shocked that we don't agree with you and you thought we would that you dial it up to eleven and forget what you're saying.

And you, troy, aren't the worst by far.

And if you noted that I posted a National zogby poll (and this guy is not a right winger by any means)

Trump is at 45% (which means he's still climbing)

And Cruz is at 13%

And that should tell the tale. We can't all be that stupid. Not in a primary. Sure popularity doesn't mean it's a good thing but it does mean you've got a tough row to hoe to change all those minds before the primaries.

Will he do things as President that will make me want to pull my hair out?....almost certainly, but, I do think that he likes being one of the major players in the world's big dog country, and wants us to remain the big dog. All the others but for Cruz? not so much. Therefore, if Cruz is still on the ballot when the primaries get to my state, I'll pull the lever for him, other than that, there is no option but Trump.

1044 And much of the conservative "elite" have joined in over the years with the "Opportunity Society for the Entire World" loaf with a dash of "proposition nation" leavening. Just one reason many fewer care what they think anymore.

I suppose there's some reason why no other country wants to free up their society to compete with us. Oh yeah, most of them are run by control freaks too and would rather die than give up their power.

And the idiots we have in DC have given them just about all of our stable economic sectors, so all we're left with is Insert Studies Majors Barristas.

1047 We have at last landed on the real irony of the Trump candidacy: he's popular because he's ostensibly anti-establishment, but he is in fact more liberal and two-faced than either McCain or Romney.

1138 Best safety is your trigger finger.

Keep the damn thing off the trigger.

Don't let anything ELSE get on the trigger. (you wouldn't believe some of the pics I've seen of hosters and belts and other shit hitting the trigger while drawing or reholstering.

It's just stupid.

and that's the other safety the nut behind the wheel.

When they say "act like every gun you pick up is loaded"

They aren't kidding. That means EVERY. DAMN. TIME. you pick one up. Even though you just put it down.

Then it will become a habit.

next is don't aim at anything you don't want a bullet to tear apart. This is a back up measure.

There are very few 'accidental' discharges and they mostly have to do with improper cleaning and/or design.

All the rest are Negligent discharges.

Keep it separate. Put the 'ready ammo' in in a special place. Sure you keep your stock separate cause it takes up too much room. but do you leave a box on your bench where you're working on your gun?

Unload it. Unload the magazines THEN work on it.

It's a ritual that helps remind you to empty the gun.

Plus there's been incidents where someone wasn't paying attention and LOADED THE GUN and immediately forgot they loaded it. (I'm not kidding)

they then let off a round checking the trigger. Bang.

by having no ammo, that unconscious loading would have been less likely to have occurred.

Besides it's not that hard to put it in a shelf nearby or in a box. Just get it out of the area where you're working.

go to a gunsmith's I will bet money you won't find ammo on their bench. Unless that's what they're working with.

Well. The Dog Problem.

per Scott Adams, a dog doesn't know he's stupid. He's a dog.

The issue is, super-geniuses are actually quite rare in society and those are really the only ones who can legitimately say anybody is stupid because they're at least 2 standard deviations above and can thus see the difference and diagnose it correctly.

Most of us are just in the middle somewhere. Which means the ones calling everybody stupid are the dogs what don't know it.

I realized after posting that, that there are some on the blog who would be offended, and I would take it back if there was a delete button.

But, at the time, there were diplomats who remarked on the effect those speeches had on the people that heard them.

I've always been suspicious of people who manipulate my emotions.

Cruz has a history to judge from and that history indicates we can trust him not to sell out. Joni Ernst had her military service and rhetoric that was more conservative than her opponent's.

1230 Since 2006 there has been no one to make a deal with that passed Congress. That made a Mexican stand off as the best deal the GOP could get done.

With a Leader who wants the best for America, the Congress can finally respond to a leadership and deal making. That goes for many of the sane Dems too. They were hamstrung by Obama, Reid and Pelosi as bad as the GOP.

You and your fellow Trump true believers support a phony baloney demagogue--a man who is so blatantly, obviously a phony baloney demagogue. He's a shameful man, a guy who witheld inheritance monies from his father's estate from his brother and denied his toddler nephew life-saving medical care, a guy whoused eminent domain to force people from their homes to build a limousine garage, a guy whomade remarks laden with sexual innuendo about his own daughter, a guy who happily admits to voting for both Hillary and Obama, a guy who equates a rich kid military prep school to real militaryservice, shitting on all of those who have worn the uniform for real.

1240 Wow. One small paragraph, from yahoonews.com of all places and so many making seemingly absolute conclusions on candidate Trump. Not like this place. I guess nerves are running pretty tight these days.

Like others said, "deals" aren't necessary a bad thing. Trump's attraction is that he talks from the heart and pulls no punches in speaking , sometimes ineloquently but his numbers go up. He speaks for many of all stripes. He knows the press is dishonest, says it all the time and goes over them to communicate to the people. He knows who his supporters are, who is giving him this chance (not the left or RINOs or GOPe) and will not stab them in the back for money (doesn't need it) or principle (less assured but worth the risk imho). NRO is Rubio is Bush alternative (JEB! sucking wind despite $100M spent or some such) and GOPe trying to make nice nice and Trump saying this is a big nothingburger.

Sheesh.

1243 What all the silly tribes of "conservatives" seem to not get, at all, is that Trump is attracting democrat voters as well as republicans and normally non-voting people.

The audience so many are so keen on dismissing includes a genuine broad church.

What he says is not just to pander to some mythical conservative base, it's to reach out to the maximum number of customers for his brand.

He is the Disney candidate. Offend no one who matters, rope in anyone you can.

Once elected, everything changes.

Posted by: Flying Tiger Comics at January 22, 2016 05:08 PM (MSlEr)

1244 I agree with Trump on this. Like it or not, the liberals are here to stay. The problem with the GOPe is that they make bad deals. They are the suckers who keep buying the Brooklyn bridge from smooth-talking hucksters. Trump knows the art of t6

1247 Oh come on, as if we didn't already know that Trump will make deals with everyone and anyone. He'll invent groups to make deals with -- that's not me kidding, I predict he will actually do this. Deal making is his "thing." Who in DC can he make deals with? THE PEOPLE IN DC. We all know who that is, and guess what? If we elect Cruz, he will either make deals with the devil or get zip, zero, zilch, nada. Why is it that we think Reagan was a hero for making deals with Tip O'Neil, but Donald Trump is a jackhole for saying, "yeah, I'll make deals with the establishment, you betcha"?

1248 Cruz doing the Freemasonry "Hidden Hand" during the last debate...it's not very comforting. Trump is probably a Freemason too though. My solution is to force Bernie into office so we can finally get it on, and start the depopulating this country. At least my age group would have a chance at freedom and prosperity when we get to retirement age. Sounds a lot better than a slow painful death we will go thru once we get Hillary-Trump-Cruz-Rubio.

1254 I expect to see more establishment figures talking up Trump in the near future, and probably bad-mouthing Cruz while they're at it. And I don't think it has anything to do with pants-shitting terror at the thought of a Cruz presidency, either.

See, they've been attacking Trump for months now, and it's backfired every time. He just gets stronger. I suspect what's really happening is, they're trying some reverse psychology, a little bit of rhetorical jujutsu.

A lot of Trump's strength as a candidate derives from the fact that establishment-types clearly hate him because he's not "one of them"; he's not "their kind of people". Surely they know by now how much their own voting base has grown to loathe them. I think they're learning from all those failed attacks, and they figure they can instead become more supportive of him and thus tie themselves to him and become an albatross around his neck, dragging him down that way.

And if it doesn't work, well, not a big deal, really; at worst, they'll have made peace with their unwanted front-runner right before the voting starts, and thus maintain at least some small measure of relevance.

It's a smart move for them, whether it works or not.

1256 Prothonotary Warbler, I rather suspect that it has occurred to the GOPe at long last, that the best thing they can do to take down Trump is embrace him. Then NRO pulled that stunt, lol. Forget about it now, Trump's anti-establishment creds are now cemented.

By the way, I want to apologize for being so harsh and abrasive with you the last time we were talking here. Looking back on it, I'm sure I could've come up with a better rebuttal than "eat a balls".

And, I'm also not so sure it was really worth my time to argue with you on behalf of a kinda-sorta conservative and her gay BFF. I see where you were coming from, and it makes sense. I still don't dislike MKH or anything, but in this time of establishment vs. the grassroots, I have to side with the grassroots, and MKH is definitely establishment.

1258 "We've got to get things done folks, OK? Believe me, don't worry. We're going to make such great deals."

Believe you? Is this deal as good as Trump University? As good as the Taj Mahal? Trump Airlines?

Note Trump's MO is to make bold empty claims that will end up being as worthless as stock in Trump's casinos.... they MEAN NOTHING. so 'great deal'... is that a deal where we spend MORE or LESS?

I guess insisting on spending less is 'strident' and that's bad.

I don't want a president to 'cut deals' I want a President to:
1. Repeal Obamacare
2. Cut the spending, regulation and taxes.
3. Kill the terrorists and keep us safe.
4. Undo Obama's agenda and put decent judges on the courts and decent administrators in the exec branch.

CRUZ WILL DO ALL FOUR.

Trump will 'cut deals' that will be the same old sheeite sandwiches of yore ... AND HE JUST TOLD US.

Thanks Donald.

1259 465 "I don't know how many times I've seen Trump supporters back up their opinions with rational, non-emotional arguments and still those who won't take off their 'emotional' blinders persist in biased characterizations and ad homenins. "

I have yet to see a single Trump supporter make a case for Trump that actually a) made sense and b) matched with reality.

The stuff like how he will crush the establishment just sticks in my craw, knowing how Trump was a Chump for Hillary and bill, giving them money, helping Harry Reid and Pelosi, and in 2014 helping McConnell fend off a tea party challenger.

Trump's a lifelong crony capitalist, but Trump supporters want to make the arsonist the fire chief and think he will stop cronyism ... even though Trump is for the ethanol boondoggle.

Trump is 'honest' I've been told, from people who just let Trump's massive flipflops, contradictions and even outright lies in debates on several issues. Its like any words from before yesterday dont count, and total trust in an unrproven guy.

Posted by: formwiz at January 23, 2016 11:42 AM (3rwvI)

1263 IMHO, seems Trump (or someone advising him), has been drinking a slow acting mug of RINO coolaid.

What many beltway "advisors" don't seem to get is the RINOsaurs are pretty much toxic to many who have been supporting Trump to this point. Putting on the a clown RINOsaur suit won't detoxify Trump's desire to replace Obamacare with single payer health care. If this isn't enough RINO stench to turn folks off of Trump, there's also Trump's apparent support for stuffing more cornohol into gas tanks, just to buy a few votes in Iowa.

It is a trifecta of missteps that could well finally start to cut away at Trump's invincibility. However, common sense doesn't always apply in politics.

The crony-packed CoC and PRESSSident are generally happy with all these new positions and they'll be just jumping with joy to be in the driver's seat helping Trump across the finish line for the GOP nomination, if not also into the White House. Politics, from this perspective, may pretty much returning to 'normal' crony management. Oh goody goody...

Posted by: Seipherd at January 23, 2016 05:45 PM (6LzYN)

1264 Least we NOT forget Reagan never compromised, sarcasm "OFF"

Reagan got what he wanted by compromising with Tipp, this is a FACT JACK.

Reagan = Popular support among the people. A rebelis nature, mixed with a sarcastic wit. Yet humbled by being in the Peoples House, The GOP and the RNC went after Reagan with a vengeance, he wasn't one of them.

So the question becomes whats drawing so many people to Trump, what qualities does he have that is pissing so many people off. Whats the relationship to Trump and Reagan. Simple. Popular support, and those on the right and left hate him. Only two qualities that apparent at this time. Maybe a humbled nature for the peoples house if he makes that far, only time will tell with that one?

There is no middle ground with trump you hate him or love him, period.

The way i see it at this point is he will have to counter balance his loud mouth with someone that's outside the beltway. I will say this the only polls that matter at this point is the day the votes are counted, the rest are just Bull Crap.

The funny thing about this is that those that despise him the most are those that are closely tied to the government or those that see things in black in white. Or those that watch and listen to every movement of press releases from the RNC AND GOP MACHINE.

I like Cruz very much, but hell bells im real and been around along time and know he has a snowballs chance in hell of winning. The guy looks like Grandpa from " The "Munster show" to bad looks has something to do with our choices about who we elect. Kinda like the fine lady's Fox New has on their shows. Sad but true.

When your on top of the hill every one wants to kick you off, if your not pissing off someone off more than likely your not doing your job. So i take it that you never heard the story that Trumps limo broke down and a couple stopped to help him and he paid off their mortgage, or the behind the scenes story's that never make to the press. I think not.

People are pissed and they are going to stick it in the eye of the Beltway one way or the other, by electing and outsider or staying home, Because their is no perfect candidate for 2016 that we all will love and enjoy. Times have changed,people have changed and their choices on those who we elect have changed.

So stay home and let the Trump train run you over so you can complain i never voted for that guy because im a conservative and he wasn't conservative enough for me. Or here is my favorite "Let it burn down" Well i don't where you have been but its burnt down already my friend.

Iowa is going down for Trump, and the crap will hit the fan then.
