put down the ko aid and think for two seconds. just two seconds. i know how smart you are, i know how informed you are, and i can make a good guess that you’re a damn good guy, you should expect way more if yourself. you could contribute a lot to these posts.

not just him, all of them. it’s something, it really is. i got to the point where i literally couldn’t watch obama speak, it made me sick to my stomach. but he did some really good things. it never occurred to me to deny the good things he did, i assume people would think i was crazy if i denied that he did good things. no one is nearly as one dimensional as they desperately try to make trump out to be. and i hate trump as a person, he’s disgusting. but he’s doing some productive things.

i will never forget, as long as i live, at trumps state of the union, the gop cheering the low black unemployment, and all of the democrats sitting on their hands, miserable that blacks are going back to work unless they can get credit for it. that says it all, it really does.

they were miserable. low black unemployment gave them absolutely no reason to cheer. and they are the ones who never stop calling my side racist.

you cannot make somehing like that up. i dare you to try. i don’t get it, and it’s sad.

Either you didn't watch the video, or you're an idiot.

The very use of the word libtard speaks volumes.

how about you criticize him when he deserves it, and give him credit when he deserves it? what are you afraid would happen, if you gave him credit for somehing? reading your posts, or pete, or wdmso, you’d think he was a cartoon villain.

So the EU signed trade deals with China and Japan and now they are negotiating with no tariffs with the USA
Sounds like they are good negotiators
Keep in mind that they had acknowledged prior to this their internal trade imbalances

Perhaps the Republicans should have cheered because Obama is half black

In life, it's important to know when to stop arguing with people and simply let them be wrong.

So then, we don't have to keep hyperventilating about the horror of Trumps tariffs?

Tough year for the intelligence community, it must take incredible resolve to continue to do your job to protect this country, when the guy you work for will throw you under the buss in a heartbeat.

Seems like the farther down the road the Mueller prob gets the thinner his skin gets.
The irony of Trump complaining that people are “monetize their public service” is that he and his family have been doing exactly that since he got elected.
