...They haven't been challenged by a POTUS because its a waste of political capital and it serves no useful purpose. The scammers will just keep scamming long after Trump is gone. ...


And that is part of the problem. That "political capital" is worth more to them than the lives of the PEOPLE they are supposed to represent. From Trump's perspective, political capital is worthless, he wants to EXPOSE that and get the light shone on the corruption.

And to you, that makes him an "idiot"? Really?

I guess you are one of those swamp rats then?

LOL Obama is not responsible for Trump's HVAC woes,

What did Trump actually say? AP has the exact quote:


“The Obama administration worked out a brand new air conditioning system for the West Wing. It was so good before they did the system. Now that they did this system, it’s freezing or hot.”


Trump claims Obama "worked out" the system. Which is true:


The renovation, approved during the Obama administration, included updating a 27-year-old H.V.A.C. system, upgrading I.T. systems, and repairing the South Portico steps for the first time since the Eisenhower administration.


The design and money were approved by Obama. Could Trump have changed it? I'm not sure he could. Your point that Trump lied, is wrong.

Besides which this is all a straw man argument. Your saying he lied about receiving a lot of calls, emails and letters about Baltimore. There are no statistics to refute or support his claim. He tends to be bombastic and hyperbolic so even if they are not the exact number more than any other subject is relatively moot. There were a lot.

One newscaster, i disremember who put it more or less this way:

"The Right take Trump figuratively not literally and understand his point."

"The left take Trump literally, not figuratively, to their detriment."

You're illustrating that well in this case about Trump's Baltimore statements. The more you nit pick this the more people are going to say the left is just wrong because on the bigger issue, Trump is right. The Democrat controlled city is in horrible condition and billions have been mis-spent and ended up in politicians pockets.

The General Service Administration and its contractors typically take advantage of presidents’ vacations in August to race through construction and maintenance at the White House, the report said.


Not the Obama Admonstrtion.


The General Service Administration assessed and priced at $1.97 million the installation of a new system in the West Wing in 2014, but only presented a plan to change it in the fall of 2016. The Obama administration approved the project but left its realization to the next president.


www.politifact.com...

The Obama administration left "the realization" to the Trump adminstration.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but job growth isn't a lone indicator of a growing economy. Economic success comes from production that has proven to be efficient. There's nothing efficient about Democrat platforms.


That why I posted both charts. Job growth and ecumenic growth.

But you should advise President Trump to that fact, that one person working 3 jobs isn't the same as job growth.

BS. They haven't been challenged by a POTUS because all the previous ones were politicians just like them. Trump isn't a career politician and he's willing to shake up the system to point out the flaws in electing life long career politicians. This is a wake up call to the American people. If you want government to change, you have to change the players, including the ones in administrative offices and intelligence offices, which is something most presidents don't do either.

There is so much wrong here.

1) How would Trump know how good the AC worked before he was president?
2) Blaming Obama for Trump's inability to regulate his own body temperature.
3) The Trump administration oversaw the installation of a new, not repaired, HVAC system. Your source keeps contradicting itself, and quotes a Trump spokesperson, so it's not necessarily factual.


1) The HVAC system that was planned in 2016 and installed in 2017, wasn't installed until August 2017. That's how Trump knows. Did you look at the date of the article?

2) Your comment about Trump regulating his own body temperature takes the cake on ignorance.

3) Once again, the plans were all made in 2016. It's obvious that you have no idea how the GSA works and how work gets done inside our federal government.

Well, first of all, the position of POTUS isn't a representative position. Presidents are elected to represent anyone. Its the executive branch of the government. Typically they gather up and expend their political capital on trying to garner legislative support in Congress for their national agenda; Presidents are supposed to be "leaders", not representatives. LBJ was probably the "best" at managing his political capital and manipulating Congress to get things done in furtherance of his national agenda.

In trying to do all that, 99% of US Presidents have tried and mostly succeeded in avoiding getting down in the dirty fights with individual Representatives in Congress. They rise above such messes and trust the House Ethics Committee will take care of such things. And, since WWII, US Presidents have been considered "Leaders of the Free World of Western Democracies".

Viewed from this historical perspective, Trump getting down into the weeds of corrupt Democrat politicians from urban pits of despair is rather unbecoming of the high office of POTUS.

Well, its obvious you are "determined"; but at the end of the day...........the corruption will remain and life will go on as before, one ponzi scheme after another.

While GDP is used to measure economic growth, it has been proven time and time again why it's a flawed measuring system. While GDP measures productivity, it DOES NOT measure productivity efficiency.

Fever and chills are well known side effects of Adderall and dementia.

LOL, like you do! HAHA. But, I don't have to, because you linked that article that explained The General Service Administration work and that the Obama administration left the realization of the project to the Trump Administration. So, the buck stops with Trump. No way around it.

Maybe Trump should blame the manufacture that built the lousy HVAC system, or contact the makers of the thermostats that don't work for him?

Or, maybe Obama has West Wing HVAC and thermostat control on his iPhone and is deliberately punking Trump by manipulating the HVAC from his library?

Or maybe, it's Kellyanne who keeps re-adjusting the thermostat!

You can label it as "rise above such messes" all you want, but we've all witnessed how ineffective past presidents have been in changing the system. The House Ethics Committee doesn't mean squat when it's presided over by corrupt politicians who have been there for too long.

Whatever.

Democrats have, time and time again. come in and repaired economies that were ruined by Republican presidents, who inherited good and stable economies from Democratic presidents. That's just a fact.

Check it out for yourself

Amazing, you guys are talking about the West Wing HVAC system.


Wait till they dive deep into the Electrical and Plumbing systems of the Executive Branch. That's where the real scandals lay.

Many skeletons hidden in those plans........

Alright, we get that you have decided to wallow in your ignorance, so there's no point in derailing this thread any more with it. It's only dumbing down the entire thread.

Well, no one is talking about the billions wasted in Baltimore, instead everyone's talking about HVAC in DC.


Sookie succeeded in avoiding the topic, blaming Trump, and not addressing any of the pertinent issues.

It's like watching Congress in action!

So you're an online doctor that diagnoses people you have never met, based on things he never said?

Btw, he never said he gets fevers and chills. He said it's either hot or freezing. Oh and another thing is you missed the hyphen between well and known. Figured a doctor would be educated and precise enough to not miss that considering your superpower for diagnosing people.

Guilty.
I just saw yet another ridiculous sookie strawman that needed set fire...so I did it.
It's just so easy.

I'm really ashamed...commence my spanking, everyone.

We really should see it for what it is.

Be cries of racism, air conditioning there is no excuse for what’s happening in Baltimore.

There’s no defense for the rank corruption and it’s actually supported and defended by the leftists.

The Left knows how successful Trumps attacks are...and how vulnerable leftists are on this.
Clumsy, ham-fisted, distractions and wild-eyed, spittle-spraying, screams of racism are their only remaining options...and those appear to be coming from desperation.
