Oh Good Lord! .....

When you talk about intellect, remember, Trump single handedly beat the Clinton political machine, and the entire Democrat party at their own game.

Think about that for a minute. It can only be one of 2 ways. either Trump is FAAAAR smarter than you give him credit for. Or Clintons and the Democrats are FAR stupider. One of the two, you decide.

clever in a satanic sort of way. if you don't expect the other contender to be despicable and play on people's worst fears and prejudices of course you're gonna lose.
but who wants a world such a leader would craft?

I agree, Hillary is one of the most despicable people in Politics. And we all know that Democrats have been playing on peoples worst fears for decades.
The list of Democrat fear mongering is staggering.

So yes, your right, that's why she lost.

Yeah, one......right.... good one! Believe me, a huge portion of the Democrat party would LOVE to see the North Korean agreement fall through, just so they could attack Trump. And those same people are praying for a down turn in the economy so they can use that also.

But you go ahead and believe your silly fantasies, that dems and the media want what is best for the country, even if Trump gets credit for it.

Many Liberals I encounter think he admires and wants to imitate dictators, is a communist sympathiser, and has destructive policies. His recent announcement of stopping war games w S Korea did nothing to allay those fears.

If I've said it once I've said it 100 times, there are many on the Left, especially the rich in Hollywood that put their hatred of Trump before the good of the Country. They don't give a fig, they're rich, a recession wouldn't hurt them a bit. They could care less how a recession affects middle and low income people because they don't care about us, except for votes.
This is the lowest of the low, keep talking Bill, you dumb a$$.
This is a very common sentiment right now, one the current TDS crowd used to accuse Obama critics of too. You are right Bill can afford to ride out a reccesion and at this point of course he and other like minded well healed individuals show their true colors. Things are tribal now.

Spectacular and classically on point demonstration of the true meaning of and the way to throw out a "straw man" at an opinion you don't agree with. Or can't come up with an intelligent reply to.

How Many Dems Agree With Bill Maher's Recession Wish?

Quote:
But what's a Democrat hoping to reclaim the House majority in November to do?

One is to ignore the economy altogether. So, Democrats are trying to turn attention to things like ObamaCare premiums or alleged corruption in the Trump administration.

Ignoring the economy will be tough, however, particularly if GDP growth comes in strong in Q2 and unemployment continues to fall.

The second option is to belittle it.

Nancy Pelosi, having dismissed the tax-cut-fueled raises and bonuses that millions of workers received as "crumbs," is now dismissing the good economic news as no big deal. Why? "Because of the wage stagnation."

"Our economy," she said, "will never fully reach its possibilities unless we increase the consumer confidence."

The army of media fact-checkers must have been asleep when she said this, since her claims are so easy to debunk.

...The third option is to admit openly what many Democrats no doubt feel privately: That a good recession is what the party needs to reclaim its former glory. After all, it did get Obama elected president.

Over the weekend, HBO talk show host Bill Maher spoke the words out load.

"I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point," he said, talking about the booming economy. "And by the way, I'm hoping for it because one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy.

"Sorry if that hurts people, but it's either root for a recession or you lose your democracy."

Let's leave aside the glaring logical fallacy Maher commits with his false dilemma, and ponder what he is saying.

Maher would, if he could, throw millions of people into unemployment and poverty, watch as hard-earned savings vanish, wages stagnate and hope gets crushed, if that might keep Trump from winning re-election.

Wow.

Of course, it's easy for Maher to wish that, since he's already made his millions attacking Republicans. But just how many of his fellow Trump-loathing Democrats secretly feel the same way?

Reporters love to force Republican politicians to answer for anything outrageous that a conservative says. Shouldn't these same reporters, to prove their lack of political bias, press every single Democrat running for office in November to condemn Maher's economic death wish?
