Interesting CCGPV, very interesting.
In another thread you stated that you hope Trump "gets nailed, too," but you wish people would stop criticizing Trump because we may very well "be embarrassed."
You then say the Democrats don't have a strategy and are doomed to fail. You are presented with at least some evidence to the contrary, which you dismiss. You are invited to share your own perspective as to how things can be done differently. You decline.
BUT you continue posting stuff of this ilk? You're so sensitive about the prospect of "being embarrassed," and hoping he "gets nailed" that you go out of your way to defend his behavior as meaning "nothing." Once again, you profess that you're concerned about the Democrats' prospects in the 2018 elections, saying they're "doing it all wrong," yet spend any of your energy engaging on that topic.
Very, very strange.
The point in saying it is to pivot the news away from him.
Yes, riling his base up. It works.
The base that who you said before "doesn't believe it"?
So if we took a poll (hell, I'm sure there are plenty out there) of self-identified Trump supporters, and we ask them whether they think that Hillary is guilty of a crime, in fact "the real criminal," what would you expect the response to be? If you say that the majority of them would say "Yes" (and I think we can agree that's an understatement if there ever were one), why would they not believe Trump when he questions the AG over Twitter as to why she is not being investigated? You're saying that they just shrug him off, i.e., "Ha, ha, ha, that just Trump being Trump"?

He has the power and authority to do so but he has not.
What other indications do you want?
Well one standard--albeit an old one--would be not to say anything, no? Is your contention that Trump is just throwing red meat at his rabid base--"inciting" them, which you agree that he does--and they're not going to demand actual blood one day? That Trump is, at heart, a responsible leader who is putting on all of this for show because he knows that at the end of the day said rabid base wouldn't be happy with his policies?
I think the litmus test is when the FBI or other government agency makes a political arrest or something similar, which hasn't and wont happen. Do you really think that's possible?
It isn't possible until it is, now is it? And history has plenty of examples of that.
Do you really believe he has aspirations to be a dictator? I mean do you really think that?
Well, let's think about what he says repeatedly and whether or not we can trace such behavior to prior dictators that weren't "dictators" once.
-Implying that if he loses the election is "rigged"
-Spreading a narrative of voter fraud
-Spreading a narrative that the media is lying
-Illogically blaming failures on political opponents (e.g., "Why didn't Obama do anything about election meddling?" thereby implying it's wrong
, but by the same token, not taking any personal responsibility)
-Lying day after day after day
And for the umpteenth time I'll say I don't support Trump or his agenda. I'm not even a republican. It just annoys me when people make claims like we are in a dictatorship or Trump is acting like one- because its rediculous.
Strange thing to focus one's energy on getting annoyed about.
I see you joined a month ago and, on cursory glance, can see you've only posted in this Non-Aviation forum.
Did you join to spread your belief that if Democrats are going to win in 2018, they should stop being critical of Trump?
Very, very, very
