Trump refusing to do the debates is him whining while calling it 'being tough'.
It was over a news article by a writer which said some pretty unprofessional stuff to be honest. But Trump stomped out and took his ball home with him.

But I say the entire GOP field should boycott Fox because apparently they plan on having a YouTube famous Illegal Immigrant featured to ask a question to the candidates as a "gotcha".

Nope



They lined up a muslim, Sanders supporter, Illegal immigrant all the while never never disclosing daughter of VP in charge debate coverage holds high position in Rubio campaign.

Nope, PASS

I haven't watched a single debate that has aired, because I've made up my mind and no debate will change it at this point or before. I'm going to OWN my decision instead of feigning interest in a debate that really just boils down to entertaining yourself for a few hours since nothing said will change your mind. I have better things to entertain myself with rather than watch a bunch of windbags argue with each other. Especially Republican windbags.

Debates weren't even important to the election process until they were made popular with the JFK/Nixon debate anyways.

What? Your answer to me is a picture of Donald using a veteran as a photo op? I'm not impressed. He's been using these guys as political pawns all along...

Albeit attempting to straw from the slippery slope fallacy, I can't help but ask how Trump would respond in high-stress situations, and in particular ones involving topics and/or people who doesn't agree with?

Would you simply cease any diplomacy and do as he's done here? Again - slippery slope fallacy, I'm not playing coy, and this is hypothetical - although I find it to be a reasonable assumption to make.

But then again, I don't see this as walking away from a bad deal - I see it as walking away, which is something I would aspire a POTUS to not do. Stand fast and strong, despite opposition and always attempt to transcend differences in order to alleviate issues, therefore allowing diplomacy to take form.

I hardly see Trump as a diplomatic man, I see him as an egotist who has a view of "my high or the highway," in which simply does not work in politics.


I'm not arguing for or against Trump and his leadership/diplomacy abilities. I am saying if the voters accept his premise that this is about business and walking away from a bad deal then it will work for him. If they do not, it will work against him.

In the business world, what he is doing works well. If you perceive a business deal is bad and you gain nothing from the deal, you walk away. Do the voters want the country to be run as a business? That is the question that will answer if this decision works in his favor or not.

If the Iran deal is used as the example...yes, walking away from that would be a masterstroke. Being responsible for accepting that deal is an abomination. Or is that Obama-nation ?

Kinda like hugging and slobbering all over the defector's parents in the rose garden ? Too bad that just made every military member who was not a defector hate obama even more.

Every military member who was not a defector? That's a strong claim you are making. I happen to be a veteran and not a defector and I don't hate Obama. I don't love him, but I certainly don't hate him like most conservatives seem to think the country does.

Yes, I totally expected you to take the word "every" absolutely, unquestionably, 100% literal.

Doesn't your butt still hurt from doing that in the other thread about the militia ?

There are several veterans that adore Obama, I'm sure. Bowe Bergdahl, John Kerry, Weaseley Clark, Colon Powe. Nobody I'd want to associate with.

I'm a vet, 22 years USAF to be exact.

As a Christian I attempt to not "hate"....but I really despise any president that cleans house of many great leaders, to install and promote his own butt-kissers and sycophants.

Doesn't anyone ever wonder why the RNC sells these debates to hyper-liberal socialist-loving outlets, who hate republicans and conservatives ?

Somebody expects anything but gotcha questions, deliberately instigated brawls among the participants, and direct hate for individuals such Kelley shows for Trump ?

FOX is the only non-100% progressive leftist outlet, and even they trot out Kelley to get Trump.

I wasn't so angry at Kelly. BUT then......her thumb to Trump...was Michael Moore...that's when she lost my respect, as before that I was siding with her because Trump proved her correct when he acted out...

I have now withdrawn any support of FOX for the revelation that they are doing 'gotcha' journalism with their 'guests' they have lined up.

In fact I'm at the point where I believe an International shadow Cabal is encouraging Islam spreading to western nations PLUS Illegal Immigration...as some sort of grand experiment or chess game.

And FOX is looking like a bad actor part of the chess game.

Call me paranoid...screw it

Yeah.

People stopped having faith in corporate-owned media LONG ago.

It still absolutely baffles me at how some people consider scripted programming to be anything but scripted programming.

You are just now withdrawing all support from Fox? I stopped taking my television seriously YEARS ago.

Veteran's Group Won't Take Trump Fundraiser Donations



he head of an Iraq and Afghanistan veterans group says they will decline donations from the fundraising event Donald Trump plans to hold Thursday night as he sits out the Republican primary debate.
...
If offered, @IAVA will decline donations from Trump's event. We need strong policies from candidates, not to be used for political stunts.
...
Now it's Cruz yanking vets into the nastiness of the presidential fights before Iowa. This is not what vets need.

I wonder what all the other vets and their families, especially the ones that donate to this bunch, think about the head honcho turning down contributions that their fellow Americans rallied to raise for them. Some of them are probably thinking their head guy is awfully partisan politically.

LOL to be honest I've watched FOX maybe 3 times in 3 years.

Like I really 'supported" them before. I actually laughed reading what I wrote.

Not entirely 'accurate'...

That's brilliant. Some guy refusing money that will make a wounded vet's life better, because of his personal political bias.

Reminds me of unions making things worse for their members just to make political points. Or teachers unions making things worse for the kids, for a few coins.

One-hundred percent of Americans need to turn the damn television off for a couple of days.

ALL of the debates are scripted and filled with loaded questions, it doesn't matter what color you've picked for your team.
