He isn't.

But the Democrats, liberals and leftists are because they support Muslims who oppress women.

He doesn't.

But Obama proved he did when he announced that the oceans stopped rising because he won the election.

A silly claim, that.

Being nice hasn't worked with Democrats, liberals and leftists.

Time to play hardball.

Examples of three lies, please.

Obviously not true.

Again, not true.

What good does anyone see in Hillary?

Name three great accomplishments of hers that have benefited this country.
Good job. Have a cookie.

It turned out pretty well? Which part?

Tripling the national debt?

Supporting death squads in El Salvador while importing cocaine into the US?

299 dead in the Beirut bombing?

Selling weapons to Iran?

The S&L crisis?

The explosion of homelessness in the 80s?

The crack epidemic?

Ignoring AIDS?

138 members of his administration convicted, indicted or investigated for corruption?

Consulting an astrologer to make national policy decisions?

What was your favorite part of the Reagan administration?

Top 10 Reagan Achievements | Human Events (p.s. Dems won't see this list the same way conservatives will, keep that in mind)

Every president has done good and bad, I could easily post Obama's rap sheet. I never said he was perfect but he wasn't a horrible president either.
He accomplished a lot, and his prior acting didn't prevent that. A lot of what he did was improve social moral and stimulate the economy.

Besides, why would you, as a democrat I'm assuming by this post, be on here discussing this? You won't like any of the republican candidates, I'm not surprised you don't like Trump. I know, you love Obama. Why not just leave it at that and just post I love Obama after everything we say.

Trump is in line with the skills to lead a capitalist country. If we have jobs and money we will be happy, that's what we need. Social welfare in the form of handouts to illegals, and legal citizens hasn't, and doesn't work in a capitalist system. We won't ever get a non profit healthcare system, nor will our universities start letting people in for free. We aren't a social government. We run this country like a business, so his skills should be in line.

His mantra is "we will be happy when we are leaders again, financially well off, making good deals for our country. Even if he gets half or a third of what he's running on it will help us make more money. That is what will make a capitalist country happy. M-O-N-E-Y

Trump is also running with his own money, and taking a hit I'm sure on his businesses and TV shows to run this campaign. He is running because he thinks he can help America, it's a sincere run. He isn't a political junkie, he isn't gaining anything by showing up as a candidate. This run will put him negative, but it's worth it.

I must admit he is like a bull in a china shop but maybe that's what we need. If he fails then I'm thinking we've run out of ideas and should just sit back and watch while we slowly morph into South America. Putting a businessman into the White House is my last hope.

Aw c`mon, give the guy credit for knowing exactly what to do when the Marine barracks were bombed. He invaded Granada 2 days later.

Agreed. I think he is our last hope and if it doesn't work then we may as well just watch the destruction or our country while we descend into third world status.

Yeah, most of those are nonsense.

2. Reaganomics: Tripled the national debt. Anyone who complains about the size of the debt today has to acknowledge Reagan as the father of the giant national debt.

6. Star Wars: Spent a lot of money on zero results. This project is still not even close to being technologically feasible.

9: Tax Reform: See #2.

10. Taking on PATCO: Beginning of the destruction of the Middle Class.

3, 5 and 8 are just slogans, with no meaningful objective accomplishments behind them.

So, yeah, still mostly a disaster for America.

He has experience with economics, and heading a company. We have a capitalist government, he should do well. We aren't socialist, no need for politicians. You can't mix the two and have success in both, as we've seen. Plenty of proof has shown us if we have capitalism as a base we need a businessman, not a father.
Did you miss the part where Reagan has political experience while Trump doesn't? I'm not defending Reagan policy BUT he did have a track record with California. What is Trump's experience, bankrupting his casinos and claiming Obama isn't American? Even though I don't think Carly is right at least she ran for office before...

We dont need a bull in a China shop, we need a ladder that realizes the issue in America is the middle class. America's economic system isn't built around the rich, it's on the back of the middle class who has been getting crushed since Nixon's second term even though it came to a head during Bush 43 and Obama. I am fine with a businesses man who understands that, Trump don't.

I don't hate Trump.

I think many dislike him because he's rich. Speaks what's on his mind and that bothers the PC crowds.
