    Well, when you dismiss an entire voting block as stupid, unrefined and deplorable and publicly make those feelings known...you might just fire up a base. You are incapable of introspection if you simply dismiss your rivals as dumber than you. "Bold strategy, Cotton"

    Which is even more amazing when you consider Mitt Romney made a very similar error back in 2012.

    The thing that worries me, is that people at least used try to hide that shit. Open graft and corruption that is tolerated by the people is a significant step in the deterioration of the Presidency in my opinion. Openly corrupt governments rarely lead to functional nations.

    It feels like we are basically becoming Italy. We know our leaders are corrupt grifters but we don't care, and they don't even really try to hide it anymore. Also we don't seem to give a flying fuck about the deficit (although we haven't for decades, to be fair).

    can we all agree on one thing...it's time to keep America great! The only way to do that is to re-elect the Trumpster and not any one of these Socialists, err Democrats.

    When Comrade Sanders, Comrade Biden and Pocahantas are your party's preferred leaders...God help us all.

    I grew up in a Democratic family and have pretty much always identified with the Left.

    I liked John McCain and said so. I liked Mitt Romney and said so. I didn't vote for them, but I said that I wasn't concerned at all about having either one of them as president. I know that there isn't anything particularly unusual about this, but both those people were painted as such villains that simply saying that you liked them and didn't think they were villains made your own side turn against you.

    Well, to all of you on the Left, WHAT DO YOU THINK OF MITT ROMNEY NOW??

    TRUTH: Had Romney beaten Obama, the nation would currently be much healthier because Trump, who probably actually is as bad as the Democrats falsely made Romney out to be, would have never become president.
