    Her question was Cheesy and deliberately crafted by her and the the panel who wrote and approved the questions. It was sorta a "Gotcha" question. Journalist thrive on such things. Her ratings soared after that.

    I won't say it was unfair because after H. Ross Perot, folks were wondering if he would pull the same thing if he didn't get the nomination. Looks like a state made him sign a pledge too.

    At least he was honest about what he felt about Carly, what man on here or anywhere doesn't have an opinion about her/looks?

    Pantsuit's face and politics scares me a whole lot more :yikes::yikes::yikes:

    I have both my kids in active duty both of them are NCOs. About 50% of my close family and a butt load of my friends are active or retired. One of my best buddies is a recently retired AF full bird Col with some spectacular achievements in his career. I was talking to him about this very subject and he agreed with me. I'm rather cozily acquainted with military life. Comparing wearing a band uniform with attending a prestigious Military Academy that is usually a front door to West Point sounds silly to me. I'm guessing we'll just have to agree to disagree.

    I wholly agree. I never was in the Military either, but I bet I came a lot closer to it than a lot of people. I at least went for Physical. But, I, like you am surrounded by Military family. My dad's dad was in the Infantry during WWI. His grandfather road with Nathan B Forrest all through the War of Northern Aggression. My dad was a fighter Pilot -in WWII. My oldest son served 4 years in the U.S. Navy aboard U.S.S. Independence. My youngest son is still in the 82 Airborne and has been in the Army since 2006, serving in Iraq twice. And I have two nephews who are still in the 82nd. The oldest is a Sargent Major(E-9) and the youngest is a Lieutenant Col. There dad was an infantry grunt between Korea and Vietnam. So yes, I'm surrounded.

    But all this BS has nothing to do with Trumps abilty. Hey, his mouth pisses me off! He can't keep it shut. But I think I have a lot more faith in the man running this country than ANY dummycrat out there. And if his name is on the Republican ballot in the General Election, he DEFINITELY will get my vote.

    Trump is "the next shiny thing," all bling and not substance. He's entertainment. I thought the question was valid and Trump's thin-skinned response was a failure. Yesterday, he called Dr. Carson an "OK doctor." And criticized Carlie Fiorina for her face.

    How immature is that? Is this the personality we want running the nation?

    Yeah, I agree, if he's the Republican nominee how bout we all stay home and let the Dems elect "Hillary?"

    That may be your choice. I don't know about you, but I'll take somebody with the ability to make billions over the Pant Suit Witch any day.

    No one has advocated we stay at home, but Trump's canditdacy will pretty much ensure Clinton's election. Not everyone who criticizes Trump is your enemy. There are plenty of other candidates out there. Trump is rich and has made billions, to his credit. I don't like him or his criticism of others in the race. Thin skinned. I don't think he can stand the pressure if he reacts the way he does to minor criticism; how will he react to major pressure from our enemies.

    While it's a complex issue--military service or not--of all the things a president can do, getting our nation into a war is to me the most significant. And for that, I want the person who makes the decision to have some "hands-on" knowledge of what he will be asking American military personnel to do. If you look at modern presidents, there is some proof that real war experience is desirable.

    Eisenhower is an example of a president who knew the down side of war. He refused to go into Vietnam (and bail out the French...again), and he favored tactical nuclear weapons over large numbers of troops. Indeed, he avoided war while still scaring the bleep out of the Russians.

    Democrat Kennedy certainly had war experience. We don't really know if he would have escalated Vietnam like Johnson did. (Pay no attention to 'history according to Oliver Stone'!) Johnson's war experience is minimal and somewhat controversial, since he was essentially just a shipyard inspector, with his Silver Star having the same kind of cloud over it as Kerry's Purple Heart. Johnson was on one mission in the south pacific and was in a B-26 that had to turn back with generator trouble before even reaching the battle area. No one else on that plane got a medal of any kind.

    George H W Bush. Youngest pilot in the Navy. 58 combat missions. His bomber shot down in an area where the Japs were executing and EATING American prisoners, and was picked up by a U.S. submarine. As a congressman (Texas 7th district...where I live), he showed his lack of respect for the Vietnam war by getting his son (George W. Bush) a spot in an Air National Guard unit flying obsolete aircraft, so he could never get sent to Vietnam. He showed restraint in the Gulf War...restraint which his son, lacking any war experience, failed to demonstrate later.

    Clinton. Glorified draft dodger. Natl Guard but never reported for duty, thanks to political connections.

    George W. Bush. Responsible, more than any other single person in America, for the terrible state of affairs in the middle east. Make no mistake. I am a conservative and have no question that Obama is the worst president in U.S., and maybe world, history. However, Bush screwed up beyond what I would have thought possible, and created the vacuum that has been filled by ISIS and other muslim extremists. Getting rid of middle east dictators is always a bad idea, which he should have recognized from the disaster in Iran. Only a brutal dictator can keep muslim extremists under control and maintain order in a muslim country. (I have a friend from Syria who has been telling me stories for 15 years and still has friends, business associates, and relatives there.)

    Obama. Here we have hit rock bottom. Community organizer and puppet. No experience in anything of value or productivity. Hates the military. Hates police. Hates white people. His goal is simple: Punish the rich and white people by taking their money and giving it to poor blacks, while destroying the longest-lasting democracy in the history of the world.

    And now we have Trump, who equates military school to actual military service. Trump has had no chance from the beginning, but I had hoped he would last long enough to keep the GOP from making Planned Parenthood the only issue of the next election. Looks like in spite of his lack of military experience, he's going down in flames. I wonder if he'll bail out in time.


    Ah, you must have read "Fly Boys", written by James Bradley, son of Iwo Flag Raiser Navy Corpsman John "Doc" Bradley. That Island he got shot down close to was called Ici Jima or something like that. It contained all the communications the Japanese had in the Pacific and was a daily target of U.S. Navy flyers, many of whom were shot down and captured and was ruled by a radical commanding officer that would eat the liver of a pilot after he beheaded them. If that Sub hadn't come along when it did, there would have been no President Bush. There were no prisoners who survived being captured there.

    Gene, I didn't say Trump was my favorite candidate, because he's not. There are others I favor. I would choose Dr. Carson over him any day. Cruz would be my first choice if I thought he had a prayer of getting elected. Actually, you and I aren't too far apart here. Like I say, Trump won't get my vote in the Primary. But if he somehow makes it onto the ballot as the Republican nominee, he will get my vote. I just think too many people are throwing him aside for unsubstantial reasons.

    As far as Megan Kelley goes, I don't think she's a bimbo at all. In fact, Fox doesn't have any working there. Yeah they have their share of good looking blondes, but all of them are accomplished professionals, even the democrat ones.

    I think Trump's attack on Megan during the first debate was totally uncalled for. But we all know now that that is just the Donald. Even Megan realizes that. I'd bet money that if it comes down to Trump or Hillary, Megan will vote for Trump. She is conservative, AND Hillary is NOT her favorite person.

    Ok so maybe I was a little too hard on Megan. Her leading question to Trump was dumb and I'm shocked it passed by the producers. It's scandal "journalism" and beneath her and Fox. With all the important topics to be discussed a stupid public spat between celebrities is worthy of a MAYBE one paragraph on People Magazine at most, NOT a candidate debate and it goes right to the core of what is wrong in this country right now. Complete lack of focus on real problems. Maybe the whole country should be on Ritalin so we don't go chasing after the next shinny thing every time...

    Oh, BULLSQUEEZE! Megyn Kelley is a lot further left of center than anyone is giving her credit for regarding politics. Seems to be way too much emphasis on speaking of her assets and too little of what she actually says on air. There's much more Progressive about her than Conservative. Stop looking at her 'goods' so much and actually listen to what she says. She's actually Nancy Grace 'Lite' in politics and attitude.

    She's a lawyer and they mostly tend to sound leftist, but I've heard her too many times express solid conservative views. Remember she's a journalist now and they can't be perceived to be biased. She says what she has to to keep her viewers.

    Can you cite examples of her making leftist comments or is this more of your typically wild inaccuracy? What is progressive about her? I'm not saying she's William F. Buckley, but I've never heard her make a leftist statement and I've been watching her for years. She's the second most popular personality on Fox news, which is in no way "progressive." I disagree with any sort of Purity Test for conservatives, which in your case apparently means they must agree with each of your twisted views.

    Ummmm................NO!............I won't provide links to articles and videos you will neither read nor watch. Neither will I spend one second doing a cut and paste here that you WILL NOT read. If you're genuinely curious, look up her views on healthcare, women's issues (specifically paid maternity leave), ad nauseum. And just for the record, you said you've been 'watching her for years' which is a lot different to 'listening to what she says for years'. Sayin'.

    I didn't think you'd be able to publish any links. Are those the only things you can think of?

    Who could be against paid maternity leave? Are you anti-motherhood? Pro abortion to eliminate maternity? She's a woman, and why would she NOT be interested in women's issue? Sounds like you don't like women.

    Holy crap, Batman! You were a police investigator with the town/county you live in. You called me a liar, and in the legal system in the U.S of A. you SHOULD be aware that since you made the accusation that it is up to you to prove it. We don't have the Italian system where you are guilty until proven innocent and can be retried multiple times. YOU called me a liar. Prove it. PUT UP OR SHUT UP! :rotflmao:

    I didn't say you're a liar, I just said you were wrong. You see, that's the problem with zealots like you. Any deviation from your weak dogma makes your opponent a liar in your imagination. That's not the way it works with grown-ups. No one reading this believes I called you a liar...except you. And I doubt you believe it, really. You're just saying that to try to bolster a weak position.

    Not only was I investigator, I was an excellent investigator. And you're the one who made the accusations against Kelly. Extraordinary claims like you made require extraordinary proof, and you have offered none. Pretty bad there.

    Those are typical of your responses.
    And I'm not going to search several hundreds of hours of YouTube videos to post links that you will ignore, just like you ignore links to printed material. Not........gonna..........happen. It's there if you care to look, but you won't.
    And if you know so much about her, then you are probably aware that she's considering moving to CNN. Hardly a bastion of conservatism over there.

    I might.

    His history is such that I am truly torn on which would be worse for the country. He is a ego maniac progressive that has always been a Clinton Democrat. He has trampled the rights of other people with no apology any time it would benefit him. 4 bankruptcys under his command that he takes zero responsibility for, a 30 year + track record of eminent domain abuse, fooled around on 2 wives, and throws insults like a 5 year old targeting mostly women. His platform is vacant of any fact, but piled high in platitudes made to feed anyone who is to lazy to look past this reality show. He cant take criticism and balls like a {female dog} when told no. Can you imagine a Trump Putin conference? If he doesnt sell us out, he would end up insulting the Russians at a grade school level and make us a larger laughing stock than we are now. I couldnt care less about the self promotion. That is just him being him and I am fairly sure its at least 85% tongue in cheek. He is of low character and abuses any power he has or can get control of. I might even vote for the other team if he gets the nomination. Even the Hildebeast would at least try to govern.

    Its a prep school that has a military theme which means that they get up to a bugle instead of a announcement, and they were a french looking uniform instead of white shirts and pleated skirts. That is the extent of the military part of the academy in question, I posted the link to the schools website. There is no military training unless the student volunteers for JROTC and that is the only way that there is a front door to West point.

    I was in the Corps, my cousins son is a Ranger, my father was Army in Korea, the uncle who didnt have polio or sugar was a XO of a tank platoon in first armor after screwing up his knees on the last jump in Ranger training and before he learned Russian, both grandfathers and great aunt Mary were in, relations were involved both times the south invaded the north, the first civil war where Lees dad affirmed the power of the national govt over states rights, and the second when his kid failed to take out the Norths infrastructure, when we kicked the British out, and when Washington started the French and Indian war William Penn basically conscripted a relation as motor T. I honestly dont know about WW1 but I will guess with the track record, there were a few there.

    None of that matters. Trump still went to a military themed prep school because his mummy wanted to straighten him out, NOT a Military academy like West Point, the AF academy, or the naval academy, a college prep high school with less military looking uniforms than some HS bands. He equates that with military service because in his egocentric existence, he has decided it is the same. No more, no less.

    Yes he will. And he wont be able to understand how someone can tell him "NO", or deal with people who are not real impressed with him. In the meantime, he will run roughshod over anyone who he thinks needs to give up rights in this country, as per his history.

    I disagree, he will put the modern missile defense back in Poland, attack ISIS with intent to destroy them and quit pussyfooting around and do something about Syria............look at the mess Obammy's withdrawals and do nothing policy or little caused, the vacuum and instability it created for Islamofacist to fill the void.

    If I believed him about anything, I would feel better about his candidacy. But he is a salesman. He chooses the people he wants to sell to, and then tells them what he thinks they want to hear. He doesn't really know if he can deliver or not. He just assumes that he can apply all he has learned, to be a successful president, and he's probably wrong.
  • Big ChiefBig Chief Senior Member Posts: 32,995 Senior Member
    Lot of voters are resonating with him for now............time will tell if he gets the nomination and then elected. It should be obvious to the rest of the Dipsticks in the race folks are sick of most of them and their same ole status quo politics.

    Couple exceptions, but do they offer anything better or are they electable?

    Are you saying what Trump would do or what you WISH he would do? "Do something about Syria?" What would he do about Syria? I don't know what can be done about Syria, what maybe should have been done should have been done a couple of years ago. Russia is pouring troops into Syria, but is that our concern/ That ship has sailed.

    And personally, I don't care about Poland and the missile defense program...maybe I should, but it seems we've gotten along since WW 2 without Poland just fine, except for a few years ago. I don't trust Poland to not start a war with Russia, personally. They may be run by people with the best interests of the US in mind, but I don't know that.

    Fact is, this country is screwed up and it won't take a bunch of unsubstantiated promises to un-screw it. It's a process that can't be done overnight and it's unrealistic to think it can be. While I agree he's defined the problems, but hell, you and I both know what the problems are, but if you or I knew the solutions we should be running for president.

    He is IMO A Face In the Crowd (movie) who is all talk. Maybe he's the answer, but the US is NOT Trump Tower to be run in a vacuum. He's not isolated from bad decisions where the result of bad decisions costs him a billion or two.

    We need leadership, but the problem is, I'm not sure his kind of leadership is anything more than bluster and empty promises. If I thought otherwise I'd be working for him on the campaign trail.

    Ont thing to remember is that Trump is used to running a boardroom, not a government. The two are quite different. He can't do things just because he wants to: Congress has to agree to pay for it, the Constitution needs to say he has the authority to implement the plan, and appropriate transparency and consultation guidelines need to be met. He won't be able to act by rule of will alone.
    I'm just here for snark.

    I think he would do a whole lot more to reassert our place in the world as a Super Power, more than our idiot in chief we have now who wants us to be like every other piss ant country in the world because we don't deserve greatness.

    I'll vote for Trump if he wins the Rep nomination. I think he will pull more votes in from the so called "On the fence/undecided voters" and minorities too. More than they predict.

    They predicted he would just be a flash in the pan and they were wrong.

    A Trump/Carson ticket will be a good combination.

    He wouldn't turn his back to our allies either. Obammy does practically what he wants and circumvents the constitution all the time, a president can do a lot with his veto power even when his party is a minority in congress. That should be obvious.

    Poland doesn't matter? Lets see, what event in history involved Poland in 1939 and was the beginning of a World War in Europe..................................
