    Who is they? Have you read the Mueller report? Do you know what happened to Roger Stone? But then again I am talking to a person that voted for Trump and thinks Obama was bad when it came to the economy.

    That is because the Dems are trying to do things from a reasonable and respected position, whereas the GOP is all about **** IT, we need to win, no matter what we say.

    I think the Dems should take off the gloves too......

    Thanks for posting this -- I would not have seen it otherwise. Her descriptions of being the target of his tweets is kind of sickening. I'd never really thought about it at any depth. We joke about the dude's tweets all the time, but more than half (statistically) are attacking someone. And it's good to just stop and consider what it would be like to be attacked and demeaned (and in some cases lied about) by the most powerful person on the planet, supported by legions of dedicated and angry followers. It would be terrifying. And I guess he well knows this.

    u need to open up ur history book, or at lease wiki search

    all POTUS use the tools in the economic tool chest, in good econ times as well as bad

    Eisenhower had generated an ok economy; he used the tools

    JFK, Reagan and Clinton had generated impressive economic performances; they all use tools in the tool chest.

    as did Carter, as well as both Bushes, who F'ed up the economy​

    Yes I am not arguing about the actual tools. I am stating it is less effective. Also speaking of Reagan the tax cuts Reagan rolled out he then had to later increase because of the income short fall and the raising deficit at the time.

    I think what he is saying is if you have interest rates at zero to booster what was an economy on the rise, what are you going to do when it crashes and they're already at 0? Do you go negative interest rate? Etc

    Wikipedia is so technical -- perhaps you could explain it in simple laymen's terms.

    Also when the deficit is at a trillion dollars. How do you propose additional tax cuts?

    You are wrong on so many levels. There is nothing funny about Vladimir Putin. Nothing at all. The last thing Putin has done is "sit back and watch." Russia, under the direction of Putin, actively interfered in the 2016 election, the Brexit vote, and other elections across Europe. I'm repeating myself, because you seem to be incapable of the simplest research, which shows that every intelligence agency this country possesses has said that trump's best friend, Putin, was responsible for those actions and so much more. Your nonsense about the Democratic Party merely adds to your display of ignorance, with all respect due, which is not much, based on your posts.

    Old Tuck doubles down on Putin ball scrubbing

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/tucke...e-america-as-much-as-chuck-todd-does?ref=home

    the U.S. “should probably take the side of Russia if we have to choose between Russia and Ukraine.”


    Russia didn’t hack our democracy” and that Russian election interference wasn’t “really a story.”


    The whole thing was a talking point—a ludicrous talking point—invented by the Hillary Clinton campaign on or around November 9, 2016, to explain their unexpected defeat in the last presidential election

    "What makes Vladimir Putin worse than, I don't know, a whole long list of American allies?”


    What a cuck.

    I don't know what Putin has on him to merit that kind of a wash, but I hope he doesn't get cancer, or die in an acid attack, or polonium poisoning, or get shot down with 300 tourists in a civilian airliner, asphyxiate from a gas attack, or get bombed deliberately in a Syrian hospital.

    That would make me no better than him!
