How the heck the republicans who *****ed and complained about the dems running up our deficit could turn around and spend even more is beyond me.

I'm in the 59%.

I wanted Obamacare repealed, the Wall built, and Jeff Sessions fired.

But you can be sure Trump would get my vote if the election were held today.

A true "Centrist" would applaud what good has become of this Presidency, instead of following the liberal agenda of attempting to find fault in everything said or done by Trump, but I digress. Again, I laugh and laugh.

TRUMP HAILS POLL THAT CREDITS OBAMA FOR BOOMING ECONOMY

http://www.newsweek.com/trump-tweets...s-obama-777940

Donald Trump hailed a new poll on the economy Thursday, despite the full results being a less than resounding endorsement of his presidency.

“In new Quinnipiac Poll, 66% of people feel the economy is “Excellent or Good.” That is the highest number ever recorded by this poll", Trump tweeted.

While Trump is right that these numbers are the highest positive rating in Quinnipiac poll on the economy since 2001, the survey also found that 49 percent of American voters believe former President Barack Obama is responsible for the economy’s current state. Only 40 percent of voters said Trump was responsible.

The Quinnipiac poll, which was published Wednesday, also asked about Trump’s intelligence, his level-headedness and his fitness to serve as president.

Asked to grade President Trump’s first year in office, 56 percent of those polled gave him a failing grade of F or D. Just 16 percent of respondents gave him an A.

As for Trump’s performance so far in office, only 36 percent said they approved, while 59 percent voiced disapproval.

“No one’s been this low at this point,” Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, told Newsweek, speaking of Trump's 36 percent approval rating...

I think I will like the tax cut, but quite honestly, any GOP president with a GOP House and Senate likely would have done something similar.

Foreign relations - some good, some fail
Trade - too early to tell
War on terror - good
Healthcare - fail
Supreme Court - good
Immigration - too early to tell
Environment - fail
Race relations - fail
Keeping Nancy Pelosi out of power - heading towards a fail
Keeping Chuck Schumer out of power - too early to tell
Not repeatedly saying moronic things - total fail

I could have done a much better job myself, I wouldn't be underwater by double digits in public opinion polling, and Nancy Pelosi wouldn't have a chance at the gavel.

And that's without help from virtually ANYONE in Washington, Hollywood or the media. Not bad, huh?

Default Trump speaks instead of tweeting - You like it better?

The last guy told the American people we didn’t earn what we have. I’d say thats much more anti American than calling a country that is a #%€*hole a #%^*hole. And before someone tells me that’s in the past and doesn’t matter, it does matter. It matters because the people outraged over Trumps comments applauded or ignored the last guy for his. This outrage is fake and is purely based on opposition.

Default Trump speaks instead of tweeting - You like it better?

Hillary calls women who credibly accuse her husband of rape sluts and liars - media “she’s a champion of women! Such a strong woman!”

Trump, in private says the very true fact that if you’re rich/powerful/ famous, some women will LET you touch them - media “OMG RAPIST!”

Hillary and obama in 2008 say they don’t believe in gay marriage - champions of inclusiveness!

Trumps in 2016 is the first candidate to wrap himself in a Lbgtq flag at a campaign event - monster! He wants to round up and execute gays!

Obama literally caught on tape colluding with Russia - silence

Trump, no evidence of colluding with Russia - he’s Putin puppet! He must be impeached!

IRS proven being used as political weapon. ATF/DOJ directly implicated in the deaths of Federal agents/American Citizens and hundreds of Mexican citizens, billions of dollars given to a country who’s leaders and citizens about death to America and promise destruction of Israel, Americans abandoned in Libya left to die. - what difference does it make?

Trump fires a guy for lying - this Presidency is a disaster!

Hillary takes money from foreign governments in return for favours , gets caught using racially derogatory terms, has secret email server - what a sweet old lady

Trump calls countries full of rape, genocide, incest, filth etc. S-holes - game over man, he’s an idiot and a racist, he must be impeached


The daily outrage over this Presidency is fake, ridiculous and shameful.

And yet the polls say------no wait. Polls are fake news also. Trump winning presidency pretty much proves that. MAGA! People are smarter than the media and a few select others give us credit for.

I have no idea. However, I was wrong to suggest tonight was the beginning. It appears the beginning was actually a few weeks ago. If this trend of Dems winning continues and Nancy gets the gavel, it’s all on Trump and Team Deplorable.

So you can directly attribute it to trumps tweeting? I would like to see the evidence.

I think it’s hilarious you’re using the deplorable brand when the side who used that term tried to use the power of the United States Justice system to rig the election of the most powerful seat in the world.

It’s still early in the election cycle. Give it time.

I would never suggest that one “side” has a monopoly on deplorability. However, if Nancy gets the gavel, it will be because of Trump.

If Nancy gets the gavel, it will be because the Dems got off their asses and came out to vote. Not necessarily because of Trump, but because of a Republican President.

It would be because the Republicans in Congress have continued with their spineless and cowardly way of doing things. The reason they are seemingly incapable of getting what should be simple things done, is because very few of them actually believe in the principles, people and ideology they claim to represent. It's the same reason Republicans lost the 2008 and 2012 Presidential elections. We ran two people that didn't actually believe what they preached. Romney seemed embarrassed to be successful.

There's absolute truth in this, but I don't see people voting democrat because of that. I don't like the nutless rino's either, but I'm not voting for a democrat.

Oh I don't think people will shift to vote democrat for that, I just meant it's easier to lose if you don't really believe in what you are doing.

I will say in being a centrist you make no attempt to hide your far left views on religion. Though I am unsure if its all religions or just Christianity?

You posted two comments regarding seats that have gone to Democrats. Why is this you think they flipped?
