    it's interesting this idea seems to bother HRC supporters so much. I think it's a credit to the clintons and the democrats to think they could come up with something so clever.
    Doesn't bother me, it was brilliant. They not only win the election but make fools of the entire republican party. Hell, how many republicans on this site have said they are no longer republican? Millions of republicans have left the party because of this dumbshit, that's the first step in getting them to vote for democrats.

    i do think the Pied Piper email speaks volumes, though. and i do know clinton encouraged trump to get back into politics. I doubt they sat there and went, hey, don, go ahead and win the republican nomination and then throw the election. but i think the circumstantial case that the democratic party manipulated the republicans into nominating a weak candidate is pretty strong. they were 80 percent there anyway. the culture of the republican party is such that it's seemingly almost impossible for them to nominate an electable ticket anyway. all the dems would need to do is give them a nudge to nominate a clown candidate in the mold of sarah palin. Trump fits that bill perfectly.

    hey if it's true you should be happy about it. it's quite a clever strategy.

    i would have preferred to have both parties think more in terms of being the loyal opposition, rather than encouraging the other party to promote a scorched-earth candidate, since if Clinton's campaign had somehow failed even despite its establishment support we'd have been stuck with trump instead of someone like rubio or jeb bush. but as a tactic it's gold, presuming the dems don't care about that sort of thing.

    Trump ran his campaign like a reality show. Saying whatever he felt like saying was more important than actually winning the election. It was nothing less than a performance. In his mind he did it his way...

    that was sorta my impression too. I never really got a sense of there being a there there. it was like the truman show or something.

    i mean they're both like that in their own way. but they both would just double back on themselves on a dime. john kerry couldn't get away with it, he got called a flip-flopper. but HRC and Trump were in a competition to see who could flip flop more. trump was always very much, hey, i'm pro-choice, nah, i mean i'm pro-life, i mean i'll throw women who get abortions in prison, nah, i mean i've got exceptions for the life of the mother. HRC does the same crap, but she at least pretends she thought about it. trump just kinda hopes you forget what he said a couple months ago.

    UGH.
    Thanks from Jets

    think trump knows he going to lose?

    Back on topic... I don't know if he even cares, but if he does, then anyone on his campaign staff can assure him that he will lose the election. They know.
