I dont think a self centered man, can bring back the american dream or make america great again. Not even for himself.
I have heard so many times in recent years that if we just had a business man running the country, run the country like a business. The problem is, Trump is in the business of self-promotion and real estate, not areas we normally associate with "business". And, he has excelled at self-promotion but has failed at real estate (as was pointed out, it's like he doesn't understand economics or accounting).
in negotiations, he can approach with an attitude of wanting fairness in economics rather than an attitude of superiority
Given the choice between someone who feels a sense of superiority and someone who feels a sense of mediocrity as a leader, I actually prefer the sense of superiority. And given the choice between the two previous examples, I prefer someone to build themselves up rather than tear me down.
He is not only convinced that Trump will be worse than Nixon in virtually every way—he thinks he’ll probably get away with it.
...In Trump, Dean says he has observed many of his former boss’s most dangerous traits—obsessive vengefulness, reflexive dishonesty, all-consuming ambition—but none of Nixon’s redeeming qualities.
“I used to have one-on-one conversations with [Nixon] where I’d see him checking his more authoritarian tendencies,” Dean recalled. “He’d say, ‘This is something I can’t say out loud...’ or, ‘That is something the president can’t do.’” To Dean, these moments suggested a functioning sense of shame in Nixon, something he was forced to wrestle with in his quest for power. Trump, by contrast, appears to Dean unmolested by any such struggle.
“I don’t think Richard Nixon even comes close to the level of corruption we already know about Trump.”
In the four decades since Nixon resigned, Dean says, the institutions that are meant to keep a president’s power in check—the press, Congress, even the courts—have been rendered increasingly weak and ineffectual by a sort of creeping partisan paralysis. (Imagine, if you dare, the Breitbart headlines that would follow Woodward and Bernstein’s first scoop if they were breaking their story today.)
I am thinking now that, give her a riding crop, and she may be dressed for another occasion, as someone who might also discipline Nigel Farage, who Breitbart says will be a "close but unofficial advisor" to President Trump.
Buzzy, this is the craziest damn world we live in!! Here you have people filled in their heads about a NWO conspiracy and "sovereignty", and they seem to be all over a Pres who Russia leaders love and who will be "advised by" a citizen by another country. I don't get it!
