What you are saying is we need to limit free speech and be PC. That incorporates and translates into being criticized for telling the plane truth. If minorities are offended by the truth it's up to them to be tolerant. Politicians are pushing a oneway street on tolerance. No better example of that than Christians around the world who are told to change while Muslims are not ask to change anything. I say Muslims need to be tolerant and need to be schooled on tolerance. Christians shouldn't be ask to remove a neckless with a cross on it to appease any other group. I reject your statement that - "that is just the way it is" I want to see someone elected who rejects it also.
Trump is not an entertainer, he is a moron trying to buy and polarize himself into the White House. He should remember that the President is not just the president of a fan club, but of the entire population.

Entertainers in politics are not a good idea, anyway. Just look at Reagan or Schwarzenegger. People should stick with what they are good at.

Sorry, Ed, but in your posts #22 and #34 you attacked the individual poster immediately preceding you - not the ideas or the group. This accords with your usual method of adopting some puerile catchphrase and then attempting to intimidate any response by continually reposting it ad nauseum. How tedious. And if you presume to lump me in with the "lefties" as a riposte, I can assure you that I am not one.

Yes. We clearly need more community organizers.

Says the guy with this in his status bar: "The leftwing crazy train has left the station." This is the poster who earlier today told all left wing posters to "shut the hell up." You may think that's a clever way around the 'personal insults' rule but you're not fooling anyone but yourself.

People continue to list all of Trump's transgressions, but no matter what Trump says, all it does is accent what our current president doesn't do.

He doesn't mock reporters with handicaps? True, I guess. I would have thought that a good thing.

Impersonating someone used to be thought as entertaining also. I mean what is a John Wayne impersonation with out the walk ? Rather flat in reality.

Trump fans do you find yourselves continually having to make excuses or provide rationale for Trumps bad behavior? Aren't you getting tired of having to do so?

Oh for crying out loud. I'm talking about the fake outrage right here on CD from liberals.

I hate to keep repeating myself, but I will. Trump will fall away, and so will Dr. Carson, for opposite reasons. One is too brash, and one is too passive. All of we Republicans need to circle the wagons soon and decide who the most viable candidate really is.
