    "Sadly Trump is winning"

    Interesting article. Thoughts?

    This is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to write and admit: Trump is winning. In the brief space of a week, he won a brief court fight to shove Mick Mulvaney to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Mulvaney wasted no time in unhinging a spate of consumer protection rulings, regulations, and personnel hires made during the Obama years.

    His SCOTUS pick, Neil Gorsuch, eagerly cast a vote to impose the Muslim travel ban. His EPA head, Scott Pruitt, delivered a couple million acres of public monument land in the West to oil, gas, and coal industry developers. Trump busily continues to pack the federal judiciary with a parade of ultra-conservative, strict, constructionist Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia clones. He switched gears and backed alleged pedophile Alabama judge Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race, who almost certainly will win. The Republican National Committee, which had practically declared Moore a pariah, quickly jumped in and said it would back him. He got another sweet perk when Senate Democrats turned with a vengeance on Minnesota Senator Al Franken and virtually ordered him out of office. His subsequent resignation got rid of a pesky thorn for Trump.

    Trump’s biggest win, though, has come on three fronts. One is the GOP. It can rail and curse at him publicly and privately, but it needs Trump. The second front he’s winning on is the continuing love fest that his devout base has with him. While polls show that his overall approval ratings consistently wallow under forty percent, buried in the polling fine print is the overwhelming majority of whom back him. The third winning front for Trump is his perennial ace in the hole: the media. He remains a ratings cash cow for the networks and makes stunning copy for the print media. He knew that from day one of his presidential bid and he knows it even more now. This has been his patent ploy, distract and deflect. The public and networks take the bait every time.

    Hard for me to say this as well.
    But if the people of America are stupid enough to accept this then we pretty much deserve what follows.
    The only thing to do is to crush any and all trump supporters in the mid-terms next year.

    Trump will win in many areas, much to the disgust of many anti-Trump Americans. He's the type of guy that needed to sort America out from it's pussy leadership over the last several Presidents. The problem is, you've breed too many snowflakes that views Trump as unpopular but he's saving your ass.

    Communist? Name one Communist or Socialist program implemented by a Democrat? Ya can't. You're all talk.

    I haven't seen any great victories. There was the celebration in the Rose Garden when they thought they had repealed and replaced Obamacare, but didn't.

    Trump's job creations in his first 10 months hasn't matched the last 10 months of Obama's job creation. When is it going to be great? I mean Trump claims we are going to create more jobs than ever, coming out of our ears job creation.

    Nothing. Obama tripled the stock market. That's 300%. So far the stock market is up about 25% under Trump.

    Trump has a 32% approval rating. Lowest of any President in modern history in his first year.

    Hell, Trump loves Russia more than America. It sounds like Trump was trying to Make Russia Great Again.

    MRGA.

    So much winning.

    Are you joining some of your GOP brethren in Moscow for "Christmas with Putin" again this year?

    "saving your ass" from what and exactly HOW is he doing that?
    Problem is you RW boys are afraid of everything; immigrants, Muslims, women, minorities, gay people, the list is almost endless.
