I hear ya, I don't want ANOTHER Bush in power. Before the campaigning began I was sure we'll see a Clinton v Bush in 2016 because corruption.

No matter who we want to be president won't matter because money talks and citizens are silenced (or manipulated).

Uh, normal guys. You know, the kind of guys who viciously ridicule each other for literally everything. Not PC sissies who spend all their time crying about micro aggressions. Real men, who work, do tough stuff, kill animals and eat them. Do you know these type of men?



I know some men who are hunters. I know men who work. I know men who are tough. Most of those men are good men and would probably want to take a swing at Trump, but find it beneath them.

I don't expect any apologies from Trump, but if his handlers can persuade him to apologize then all is forgiven.

That's how it works. Eh?


Not for me. Making fun of disabled is evidence of CHARACTER. You can't apologize CHARACTER away.

It's astonishing how Trump supporters can rationalize anything their hero does, but if Obama did the same thing they would criticize him unmercifully.

Sadly they can't even recognize their own cognitive dissonance.

Yup. And military men. Truckers. Construction workers. Bikers. And none of them would stoop to picking on someone disabled. We would have been the first to slap a bastard around that did. You're not talking about hard men. You're talking about bullies and cowards.

I wish he wouldn't do crap like that.

He does this crap every week!

When is going to be enough?

Tired of hearing this "I don't care what he does I am going to vote for him'"

He hasn't said anything about what he is going to do!
He just rambles off right wing buzz phrases and complains about PC when people call him out for being ignorant.

Well what I have heard has all been unconstitutional, illegal or impossible.

Well, not for me either, but I'm sure we all remember Obama comparing his crappy bowling game to the Special Olympics, on Leno, and then apologizing after his handlers had a word with him. It took some serious PR damage control and he wound up getting a bowling lesson from a Special Olympian.

All was forgiven, but I personally would never stoop to make fun of the athletes that participate in the Special Olympics, in the first place. For me, it just exposed Obama's serious character flaws but he was elected a second term anyway.

Just a quick question..

What ever happened to Ron Paul? Last election he was quite represented here


Ron Paul is not running. His son is. His son is Rand Paul.

And friends do it to each other, not in front of a freaking camera that is being broadcast to an audience of thousands or possibly millions.

This isn't a guy being a guy, this is guy that can't take criticism without resorting to this kind of act.

Make all the offensive jokes you want with your friends, but don't be shocked when you broadcast it to millions that people might take issue with it.

True, the few things he has actually said are just plain not possible.

It was a dumb thing for Obama to say, but he wasn't purposefully mean. He was making fun of himself. An apology can fix that one. Not this one.

While there are some crazies within the GOP, I don't agree at all he sounds like every other candidate. Trump is in a category all of his own.


Word.

If this guy gets elected he'll make the US the laughing stock of the world. He already was before running for Preisdent but snce then he's got so bad he makes dubya seem intelligent and articulate.

The fact he even got this far is as terrifying as it is tarnishing to the image of US citizens/politics. This guy belongs on Jerry Springer/daytime entertainment TV at best, not world politics. How anyone would think he's the right person to be in charge of a country or the biggest 'red button' in the world completely baffles me.

I am really disappointed over that video.

I really don't care what his response is....It better be a apology.

Is it possible he thought the guy was trying to be funny ?

Not excusing it. Just trying to understand why he would do such a thing.

Well I think Trump did a good job of impersonating the guy. I mean if you were to discribe or impersonate the guy wouldn't that be a big part of your discription or impersonation?

I didn't hear Trump say anything durrogatory about the guys arms or his disability.

I think all of you that think Trump did something wrong here are just being one of those blown out of perportion PC people.

That may be true for an Obama supporter. It's not true to me as a nonpartisan. Obama wanted a laugh at the expense of Special Olympic athletes, on Leno. Trump wanted a laugh at the journalist's expense, during a speech.

There's no difference to people who have no partisan filter.

He didn't say it persay. He acted it out and added some type of speech impediment. There is no excuse, aand it is not being PC to say it is, it is being human.

Obama was being self deprecating and came off wrong. Trying to make a joke about himself. Trump was being cruel. BIG difference.

It was wrong. But there is a difference between a foot-in-mouth gaffe that stereotyped Special Olympics participants while making fun of one's own bowling score- and what Trump did. Obama apologized even before there was a backlash. Trump simply does not care.
