    A baseball player once said to his teammate, "where I come from we only talk for a little while and then we fight."

To me leaders are tough, stick to what they think is right and fight with all they have. Obama was good at reading a teleprompter, and that was about it.

    It is like comparing Joe Montana to Terry Bradshaw. Sure, on paper Montana looks like a much better QB, but in truth, Montana would not even last one year in the NFL if he were playing under the same rules that Bradshaw did.
    ok I'm a Steeler fan (who isn't?), born and bred in Pittsburgh, relocated to the west coast on the witness relocation program so you hooked me on that comment.

    I've attended games during the Bradshaw years, but yeah - the O'bama years were a disaster, especially foreign policy. The Iran nuke deal was a clusterfuck beyond comprehension and NK?

    Trump has no filter and I do find that refreshing in a lot of ways but I don't equate that to leadership. He's ultra-paranoid, childish, divisive and a total dirtbag. Considering the options during the election 3 years ago yeah, best player available but that goes to my earlier comment on why I don't vote anymore, elections in this nation in our era are a dog and pony show.

    Politically and culturally polarized, this nation needs leadership badly. Don't see that happening soon.

    Go watch Idiocracy, the parallels are chilling.

    I have watched Idiocracy a few times, and it is more in line with what the left is pushing. I guess if you buy into the "Trump is a moron" ideology then ok. But, he has proven over and over that he is not. Look at his life, his career, and what he has accomplished. If that is what a moron is, then we need a lot more of them.

    For a lot of reasons, I know you don't like that term but I'm kind of guessing you're not going to understand either way and I don't want to put a lot of effort into this response for that reason.
    Total "dirt bag" huh?
    You have and demand "integrity!"

    Let me know when Jesus Christ returns will you?

    Trump may be, as you say a "total dirt bag" but this "Dirt Bag" is the first politician in my lifetime that has actually done ... and tried to do everything that he promised ... even with all the opposition on Both sides of the political 'spectrum'!

    Like I alluded to .. you want perfection?

    Pray for Christ's return!

    I never said he was a moron, feel free to correct me if you can. He's brilliant, I think his campaign was spot on, he knew exactly who his voting base was and he hooked them. Like what, 3m short of the popular vote and still won? I have no doubt he'll win this re-election unless the impeachment thing digs up a smoking gun because he gets it, he gets the math behind the process. He knows how to work his strengths and work against his opponents weaknesses. And I hope he wins for the record, 4 years of Bernie or Chief Warren would be a disaster right now. Biden, as schmucky as he is has leadership qualities but I don't want to go down that road right now, I'd be happy with 4 more years of Trump.

    It's entertaining at the least and I generally (not wholly) think he's doing good things.

    But here's what kind of baffles me with Trumpsters, he's a complete dirtbag. Liar, cheat, opportunist - and I get that it served him well, it has but he paid a fucking porn star $200k in hush money. That Trumpsters just look the other way on this and I could go on and on about the dirtbaggery he's been into, that it's like "whatever" again baffles me.

    That tells me people, voters are cheerleaders, with little or no integrity. I know that, I've been around long enough to realize that and I can't but not discount it. There isn't enough discrimination with the average voter, it's a football game. You have your team, you're stuck with it and you're cheering like hell for them regardless.

    That's why I reject democracy, the average voter is a moron. Shamelessly too.

    Winston Churchill nailed it, "the strongest argument against democracy is a 5 minute conversation with the average voter". I'm not saying democracy is the worst system compared to other systems, I just don't think people really want to understand it's weaknesses.

    The inherent problem with it if you think about it.

    People can have integrity and still vote and support what is beast for the country. I recognize that Trump is a narcissist, almost all very successful people are. Yes, he says what he thinks which is why so many like him.

    He is an alpha-male (or super-toxic male if you prefer) and it is alpha males that have shaped our world. That is how it is.

    I do not have team, I do not label myself a conservative or a liberal. I make a decision on an issue without having to consult a checklist to see if I am supposed to agree or disagree.

    I also would guess that most of the heroes of today like Winston Churchill or Martin Luther King were also dirt bags, womanizers and adulterers.

    Like this @Retiredat50 - this guy clearly is a blow-up doll, has nothing to bring to the table other than his insecurities. This guy votes too, not based on intelligence but on cheerleading talking points.

    It's why I don't vote anymore, why bother?

    Watch Idiocracy, it's here. We all live in it.

    i'm watching idiocracy in real time, it seems.

    you might want to refrain from projecting your homoerotic inflatable fantasies on another poster, by the way.

    it does nothing to further your argument.

    have a nice day.
