...I´m sure most people just turn off just to see my penname here....but how can anyone still lay any credence to the political system watching these antics?
Why aren´t people not yet buried in cynicism talking about real solutions? Or is it just that we are programmed from birth? Reminds me  of the clip from Brave New World, where the babies, scattering for the roses and books are zapped with painkilling electricity....

I don't turn off but it would help if I understood it? We all understood it? 

Rest assured that some of us see it as not only cynical but also disgusting garbage.

At an appropriate time. Can't be bothered to spend too much time reading a link on bashing Rubio to find out who she's trying to promote. But there's little doubt that Trump and Cruz are starting the long-awaited fall from glory. Please hurry because some R's are going to pick up on Bernie Sanders' anti-establishment agenda. Angry poor and middle class that they are.

Only history will tell if this was Trump's hidden ace, or his Achilles' heel, but he's probably the first Republican candidate I can think of who spent almost as much time dismissing "Republican" dogma as "Democrat" dogma. 

I'll never root for him to actually win the Presidency, but let's just say I wouldn't trade him for Ross Perot again, or Ben Carson, or the reanimated cadaver of Ronald Reagan.  It's all kind of crass, and unbecoming, but I can't deny it's kind of interesting to see a viable candidate who's willing to tell both the left and the right what part of their anatomy they can kiss.

Specifically what? Perot and Reagan tell us nothing about what you think Trump said that was so great. Anything I can think of was pure politicing and not anything that could match his extreme rightist ideology. 

Amazing that anyone on the left would be taken in by his nonsense. Make America great again Magoo?

Or maybe it's just me and I've missed his sincerity?

Rubio is more perfect than Bush2 for president. He has the good looks that are so important in the land of the gun and he's probably at least as stupid and easily led as Bush2. Maybe even moreso! This is a guy who could go all the way. Definitely no Obama here. Now he needs to get himself a good Cheney.

He's vulgar but I admire Trump's direct honesty as he said today if you are not going to vote for him don't vote.  Laughing

Fox already has the NH results and Trump won Laughing

Fox News accidentally reports Donald Trump as the winner in New Hampshire

Donald Trump won the New Hampshire primary Tuesday — according to a premature Fox News report.

Citing every precinct reporting, Fox News' website accidentally published election results declaring Trump the winner with 28 percent support and 14 delegates.

“During routine testing in preparation for the New Hampshire primary a malfunction occurred which briefly showed errant data on our website,” Fox News Chief Digital Officer Jeff Misenti said in a statement. “This error has been rectified. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.”

 

New Hampshire Presidential Primaries Results

Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and John Kasich each shared three delegates, according to the errant Fox results. Rubio garnered 15 percent support, followed by Cruz at 12 percent and Kasich at 11 percent. Chris Christie received 9 percent support and Jeb Bush got 8 percent, while Carly Fiorina finished at 4 percent and Ben Carson at 2 percent. None of them, however, received a single delegate.

Jim Gilmore got 574 votes in the mistaken Fox data but registered at zero percent.

Unfortunately Trump now looks unstoppable for the GOP. Even thought he is a dick unfortunately Tump is a very effective campaigner and could win the Presidency.

I don't think he's unstoppable by any means. It's wide open

Both Sanders and Trump have been seriously underestimated by the respective party establishments. Voters are very angry and want major change.

Now Trump is responding to Obama's presser

Interesting setting: Trump and buddy sitting on upholstered chairs, US flags, trying to act like he is being interviewed by a journalist  

Trump: Obama was lucky that Rmney ran otherwise Obama would have been a one term President

Trump: Borders are like swiss cheese (must include the Northern one with Canada) Illegal immigration

Trump: Bill Clinton had a chance to take down Osama and didn't and has never explained why. If Clinton had acted the World Trade Centres would not have come down.

Is Donald Trump nearing a victory tipping point?

If Donald Trump reaches March 15 with a substantial lead in the polls, it will be difficult for any other Republican candidate to catch him.

Trump Exposing Political Decay in US: Analyst Eric Draitser (audio)

http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2016/02/20/451258/Trump-GOP-Draitser/

"US Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is bringing to light the political decay in America, despite adopting a fascistic rhetoric, says an American geopolitical analyst.

'I have to sit back and laugh and really enjoy the political theater that Trump is putting forward for the American people because, in fact, Trump has made a number of absolutely correct claims..."

The scuttlebut is after he loses Florida Marco is going to join Cruz's campaign. I thought Marco might pull the plug before Florida but after all he is not the brightest tool in the crib.

My hunch is that Romney or even Paul Ryan is actually seeking the presidential nomination, and if Trump does not have a majority of delegates on 1st ballot, one of these 2 clowns will organize a draft to draft themselves as saviour of the GOP.

An independent run by Perry or Coburn would sink any chance that Trump would have to win in November.

NorthReport

I used to think the only way to stop Trump getting the GOP nomination is to prevent him from geting 50% of the delegates. But after reviewing some of the recent GOP state delegate selection processes in previous elections, screw the GOP voters, as the GOP will steal it away from Trump if they can. Apparently some of these delegates that Trump supposedly has under his belt ccould be taken away at GOP state conventions.
