#Monsanto in the #corn creates issues in the brain? #Trump #GOP."

Trump actually makes a good point there. And it is also very good to hear a politician being so vocal like this about it for once instead of trying sell , allow it and trying to prevent the labeling of it.


That's true, but he's denying that he even said it, blaming a "young intern" for the tweet. So, do we really know how he feels about Monsanto?

Well, that whole Obama thing is a little more complicated.

What I still don't get is how the.... Tea Party..... is allowing themselves to be fooled into thinking Trump is some savior of free market economics. I've always remembered him as being a big government socialist.

He's playing off of the voter bases anger and it's finally starting to wear off as people are starting to see his whole platform is Obama 2.0 in a way... "Make America Great Again" being the mantra instead of "Hope and Change" with no actual policy plan.



I've met a few of the Tea Party crowd and listened to them talk, basically playing the "fly on the wall". Some are genuinely focused and interested only on economic issues. A few are mildly well informed on those issues and moderately articulate. The rest..............not so much and are pretty much all over the place on issues. They don't come across as the sharpest knives in the drawer.


Yes, and the low-information voter that makes up a majority of the democratic party, they're pretty sharp! Lol.

Actually, studies have been conducted that show that the Right get their information from a very few select sources and are more misinformed. The Left gets their information from a wide variety as have been shown to be more informed on the issues.

Fox News viewers have been noted as being the most misinformed of all. Isn't it sad that they are the number one "news" channel?

Trumps a Chump, lol seriously how can anyone take this guy seriously

Its his standard MO, he does this every time he doesnt get his way, or is threatened......

Insult and make it personal, the guy emotionally never developed passed 5th grade

Id almost feel sorry for him if he wasnt such a jerk


trump is a jerk...he talks over people, if someone doesn't interest him, he's a nobody, he insults people as if it's second nature, he thinks he great , even though he got his ass bailed out 3 times from going bankrupt, he thinks running the country is just like running his company, which to me is highly ignorant. to think he has a more favorable rating than the rest of the field, proves that there are a lot of ignorant people currently voting republican....so, no wonder the republican house members come across as being so bizarre.

Great way to bring the standing of a nation down even further in the eyes of the global community -- a clinically retarded presidency candidate.

Rick "frothy" Santorum also won Iowa so it means diddly squat. Trump needs to get rid of the twiter, I don't agree with him on some stuff but I am voting for him because he pisses everyone off that needs to be pissed off.

The others are the same, Hilary treated a female fan like crap and told her to get back in line and Fiorina also commented on another womans hairstyle so there are others besides Trump talking the wrong kind of junk. As of now it is going to be Trump or Hilary, they wont let Berni win and Trump is going to dwaf Hilary in the polls soon so its Trump that is going to be the next president so everyone needs to cool out,,, lol

Trump's campaign is running out of Steam. Obama's professionally well crafted 2008 primary campaign which held back reserves of coal for when they were needed at the height of the battle. In contrast Trump's campaign will likely fizzle out as people do their Christmas shopping. I would like to be wrong because short of Hillary getting elected , Trump is the only person who could give the GOP the wake up call they so desperately need.

I agree with everything you said.

AND, after the 2012 election, the GOP did an autopsy and concluded that they need to draw in more minorities (gays, women, blacks and Latinos). So, now, when Trump falls, they're going to be left with someone who supports "religious freedom" (anti-gay) laws, thinks "gay marriage" is a joke, wants to further impose on women's reproductive rights, wants to deny poor blacks their vote and thinks immigrants are dirty rapists and criminals.

How'd that work for you last time, GOP?

Trump is actually more of coward then the image he wants to present of not being concerned about political correctness.

He's constantly backtracking on stupid statements he's made--not by apologizing but with lame lies.

The latest being his attempt to take back his attack on Carson's religious affiliation.

Carson actually needs to be confronted about his religious beliefs and no one else is going to do it. If Trump isn't going to stand behind that then what's the point of having this blowhard running? He made a truthful statement about religious extremism and then backtracked as fast as he could because he doesn't want to offend the big chunk of the religious right who are supporting him. He's pandering just as much as any other politician.

ETA: If he's such an iconoclast why didn't he double down with something like "Carson's a Seventh Day Adventist. They don't believe in eating meat. There are a lot of farmers in Iowa who won't be very happy if everyone starts believing that." But it looks like he's pulling his punches after all when it comes to certain topics.

I used to be convinced that the Republicans were going to win the Presidency based on the concept of the Six Year Itch alone. Then Trump threw his hat into the ring and screwed everything up, making all the other candidates change their campaign strategies to mimic Trump's so that they could regain their lost polling numbers. Now, I'm pretty much convinced that the Republicans are handing the Democrats the Presidency on a silver platter.

Why? (By the way, 7th Day Adventists are CHRISTIANS.) And what's wrong with being a vegetarian? Should we check the diet of every candidate?

That's very true. He's pandering to the religious right (evangelicals) who think people of other Christian sects are NOT Christian, and going to hell.

If Donald is a Presbyterian, then so am I. LOL!

Absolutely true!

And I'm fairly certain, that for the first time in my life, I'll be registering as a Democrat, so I can vote in the primary... It leaves a terrible taste in my mouth, but I'm willing to do it to keep Hillary out.
