why do Trump supporters feel the need to defend absolutely everything he does?

I think Trump is incompetent.

Fair enough, but if he is, that incompetence is a good thing. All that incompetence has led to a booming economy, lower taxes, negotiations with North Korea, increased funding for research, and the removal of the most heinous tax ever placed on American citizens: the individual mandate in Obamacare.


He does not make thought out plans -- you know the kind with a beginning - middle - and end.

That's a pretty subjective (and therefore emotional) attitude. His results would seem to show that he doesn't apparently need those components to succeed... or that your observation is inaccurate.

Prices at the gas pump have gone up

You just blew every ounce of credibility you have right there in one fell swoop.

I bought gas yesterday. It was up, yes, to $2.599 a gallon. That's up from around $2.00 a gallon last year. But it's still far down from the $3.60 a gallon, with people saying it was going up from there, that I was paying for most of Obama's terms.

Try again... no, nevermind. After a blunder like that, I'm not interested in you trying again.

Oh hush and stop being mean to me.
I was laughing at your post, actually because after accusing someone of being subjective in their assessment of this administration, your comments were subjective too!

Negotiations with NK? Really? How's that going?
"Individual mandate" was necessary for it to work. It was done away with cause failure.
The stock market is doing much better I agree. Mostly a tool for those who have money. Not so much for those like little ole me.
I haven't seen more money for research? What kind of research I wonder? Can you hook me up with a link?

Why don't "they" get that?

It's not "Me Right -- You Wrong"

It's "I Think -- You Think".

Are you hoping it will be unsustainable ?

I was a little confused on an earlier post of yours. Did you ask what the long term affects were for trumps economy ?

Trick question?

Hope would be an emotion.

It stands or falls.

Yep yet to be determined. So logically no one should take a hard stand either way." In my opinion" is fine, the problem is emotions are getting in people's way .

Myself I've never denounced anything until I seen it to completion .

I am a realist.

The office of POTUS has been shaken.

How it falls -- yet to be determined.

Oh hush and stop being mean to me.

I'm not being mean to you. I'm pointing out the truth, and how you are twisting it to try and manufacture a point that not only doesn't exist, exists as the opposite!


Negotiations with NK? Really? How's that going?

Not the best at the moment. But we do have the remains of our soldiers back, and Trump did manage to negotiate a cease-fire on missile testing that has held, without paying Kim Jong Un a boatload of money. So even with the recent concerns, still a heck of a lot better than any President in memory.


"Individual mandate" was necessary for it to work. It was done away with cause failure.

It was a tax on living, that was collected by the private insurance companies. If that was required to make something work, it should never have worked. I'm not sure it did anyway, unless the goal was to take healthcare away from those who wanted it and could afford it so we could give it to those who didn't or couldn't.


The stock market is doing much better I agree. Mostly a tool for those who have money. Not so much for those like little ole me.

You really should get some sort of retirement account set up then.


I haven't seen more money for research? What kind of research I wonder? Can you hook me up with a link?

Do you work in research?

If so, you don't need a link. If not, a link wouldn't do you any good.

Noting the price of gas is not subjective. That is objective.

Saying a 30% rise is higher than a 100% rise is not subjective either... it is just plain old, flat out wrong.

Agreed.

At what point will you admit it is a success? How much time do you think we need?

The price of gas.

Hmm, supply and demand - - strength of dollar - - contracts - - definitely causes for fluctuation.

House of Cards.

How long? Trump has been disruptive (not stating good or bad).

IMO - - most stuff will eventually go back to the way it was before Trump.

Question is: Will it take a war?

You forgot taxes (a major portion of the gas price). Supply can be affected by regulations. Cost of crude can be affected by international relations.

Trump was hired to be disruptive.

IMO. It was why I voted for him.

Define backwards.

My viewpoint is Trump has moved us backwards.
