Everybody's completely exhausted from pointing out the flaws in the Democratic nominee...that's pretty much a full time job

Not many people genuinely admire the guy, Spence.

He could lose 49 states, it could be that bad. Unless, you know, that pesky FBI decides to recommend an indictment against a certain witch who recently wore a $12,000 jacket to a speech where she talked about, of all things, the horrors of income inequality.

I don't start too many political posts. It's enough work pointing out the obvious lack of fact checking with Jim's...

If you are following the BS the GOP is doing now to Trump , there should be little doubt in your mind that the Dems and the GOP are both pulling for Hillary . The tax payers are the slaves . Wake up people .

You read the same article that I did. It had some other interesting points.

True, he's let millions know it's ok to be racist and a pig.

He's going to get crushed in the general and the GOP will just heal back up.

I cannot fathom, given the field that the GOP started with, that we ended up with this guy. I just can't. Every time I hear Obama talk, what he says, makes me sick. Every time I hear Trump talk, even when I agree with the point he is trying to make, I cannot believe what a simpleminded, thin-skinned, egomaniacal, horse's ass he is.

That being said...if Hilary governs the way she says she will govern, there will be little to differentiate her from Weird Harold.

With Trump, I guess there is a chance that he would have better policy vision (in the opinion of anyone to the right of Mao Tse Tung) than Hilary.

(1) If I was an unborn baby, I'd certainly rather see Trump in there.
(2) If I'm a jihadist, I am pretty sure that I'd rather see Hilary in there.
(3) If I own a business or I'm looking for a white-collar job, I'd rather see Trump in there.

Those are the things that matter to me personally. So while it's a distasteful choice, it's an easy choice. I will plug my nose and vote for Trump.

There is a real chance he loses 49 states, and hands the Senate to Hilary as a going away gift.

Unless she gets indicted, in which case who the hell knows what will happen. That is still unlikely, but probably not as unlikely as I thought 6 months ago. 10 percent chance.

"True, he's let millions know it's ok to be racist and a pig."

At the least, he's saying it's OK to be amazingly crass.

Based on the way your side is behaving everywhere he shows up, I'm not sure they are learning any better lessons. Are Trump's fans rioting at Hilary speeches? If not, why is that, exactly? Even when the GOP is being led by the biggest jerk ever to get the nomination, his fans still aren't rioting.

"He's going to get crushed in the general "

I think that's the most likely outcome. She probably has higher unfavorable than anyone either party has ever nominated. Beating her was low-hanging fruit. And my side somehow managed to find someone who manages to turn even more people off. Amazing.

What they need to do is pull out the report they commissed after losing 8 years ago which gave them a blue print for winning back the Presidency. Instead they have a candidate who doubled down on the things that study said they shouldn't do.

Hey, if she handles the economy the way her husband did (who cut taxes and spending and kicked people off welfare, right out of the Tea Party playbook, and it WORKED), I'd vote for her. Anyone who espoused what Bill Clinton did, could never get the Democratic nomination today - unless it was Bill Clinton. That party is WAAAAY to the left of where it was, at least at the national level.

We're just about done with this 8 year failed social experiment so I'm ready for anything whether it be a pompous Trump or a smart but very weak woman.

There is no .com boom to make the Clinton's look like wizards this time around . Actually quite the opposite .

The only important distinction between Trump and Clinton is what the Supreme Court will be for the next twenty or more years. Everything else is fixable. Twenty years of Progressive rulings may be an irrevocable destruction of the U.S. Constitution. All that may remain of it is the name.

As for that overused, misused, and rather meaningless word "RACISM," there's this:

Be advised you "white conservatives," only you are the racists.

Definitely true. But the way she campaigned in the primary, would lead one to believe that she is way to the left of where Bill was. Hell, if the 1992 version of Bill Clinton were running against Trump, I would possibly vote for him (I voted for Clinton once, and think we was a decent president).

That's a good point. But he slashed (and I mean SLASHED) capital gains taxes, which made investing in the dot-com companies, more attractive. Maybe the next wave is green energy (or some other kind of technology) that would benefit from having someone in there who doesn't hate the idea of success.

Agreed on SCOTUS. And my biggest fear is that Trump single-handedly loses the Senate too. Of the 33 (or so) seats that are up for re-election this year, there are twice as many GOP seats as Democratic seats, and several GOP incumbents are in purple states, which thanks to Trump, may go blue.

Hilary was SO EASILY beatable, and we had a lot riding on the Senate elections. It was the worst possible time to nominate someone so polarizing.
