I don't think this forum has ever been so aptly named, US Politics has indeed descended into madness and while you guys bicker and argue over Trump and Biden, what does the world think? Well Senator Mitt Romney seems to have a fairly decent grasp on that.

He says it...

“has moved away from spirited debate to a vile, vituperative, hate-filled morass, that is unbecoming of any free nation”.
“The world is watching America with abject horror,” he added.


From my perspective, with friends in many countries around the world, this seems to be an accurate portrayal.

So many people sticking their fingers in their ears when Trump does, or says something unbecoming of a World Leader (almost a daily occurrence), then again, for some of you, that's the appeal. Then there's Biden, I mean surely after Hillary they should have found a less divisive person as their nominee?

Romney goes on to say

“The president calls the Democratic vice-presidential candidate ‘a monster’. He repeatedly labels the Speaker of the House ‘crazy’. He calls for the justice department to put the prior president in jail. He attacks the governor of Michigan on the very day a plot is discovered to kidnap her.

Democrats launch blistering attacks of their own, though their presidential nominee refuses to stoop as low as others.”
it seems he's even pleaded with Trump to turn down the rhetoric.

He also speaks about the things the Democrats have done, though Keith Olbermann isn't a politician.

But Romney also sought to blame both sides, saying: “Pelosi tears up the president’s State of the Union speech on national television. Keith Olbermann calls the president a terrorist.”


All in all this is a pretty damning statement on current affairs by the Juniour US Senator for Utah and I have to say, I wholeheartedly agree with him.

The world is watching!

The problem is that the US Presidential run is the biggest train wreck happening right now (unless you count Brexit of course but that isn't as big and loud as the US Presidential campaign), it's a good distraction from the pandemic.

Now do the list for your chancellor. Topping it should be the destruction of democracy in Germany. You guys ARE going to get around to imposing term limits on the chancellor's office, aren't you ?

We'll figure it out, we always do despite the Marxists and Communists who don't want us to. In the meantime, direct abject horror towards your own media for taking the easy way out and recycling news from another country instead of turning inward and reporting on policy and politics from your own country. That's the real horror--falling for the sleight of hand the media is pulling on you and your friends in other countries by beaming in discord intended solely for you to form 'their' opinion.

And, Trump 2020.

A term that's used by government and business in adherence to laws and regulations: least sophisticated consumer.

Back in the 80s, U.S. newspaper stories were written at the 4th grade level.

As business today complains that the emerging (lack of) talent pool from which to hire is void of critical thinking skills, your skewed list proves that.

Each and every line item you copied/pasted from another source has a true story behind it, a story that is missing and misrepresented just so you can prostitute an 'impression' to the least sophisticated consumer, still reading at the 4th grade level.

C'mon man, turn off the t.v. and stop worrying about the U.S. We're not coming to get you.

And, Trump 2020.

Exactly.
100% of the blame for the state of US Politics lies with the Democrat party.
They refused to peacefully hand over power after losing an election, have never accepted the result and have spent 4 years smearing, insulting, obstructing and abusing their power in govt to go after political opponents.

We even ended up in a position yesterday where that complete slime ball Cory Booker actually asked 'Do you denounce white supremacy?' in a f****** SC confirmation hearing and that utter moron Hirono actually asked Coney Barrat whether she had ever sexually assaulted anyone. It's total madness and ALL the fault of the Democrats.

Wow. The cult came out in full force to respond to you.

I can attest that in Canada, 99% of people I know think Trump is a trainwreck, and Biden is a creep, but the lesser of two evils.

No doubt someone will come and say, "This isn't true! Most Canadians/Brits/Japanese/etc. LOVE TRUMP MAGA 2020 DONT LISTEN TO CNN FAKE NEWS!!!" But it's true. abject horror. People outside of America are baffled at why U.S. citizens are fine with their system.

So, 'America first'..plus all the other American interests, all round the world...all going to America, is that what you want?
Not really, 'cos you already have it!

Of course if Trump says the world is bleeding America to death, you'd believe it.? So I guess if Trump pointed at shiite on the ground and told you it was Shinola, you'd believe that too.......
