Why not? Being loose cannons hasn't hurt the whack jobs in N Korea over the years.

Well I think you have a point but I think thats even more true of Cruz.IF Trump can tone it down a bit after the election I think he would work ok with congressional republicans while i'm not sure thats true of Cruz.

If government was really to be run as a business we wouldn't throw so much $$$ into unnecessary wars of choice that provide virtually no ROI.

Another poster stated this in a different way, and my first thought to myself was 'well, Trump might just think of masses who felt dissatisfied as 'losers'. However, the way you phrased this thought pushes me to examine this in a different way, one that I hadn't thought about before. The phrase "remembered as a total failure" primarily comes to mind, as I see one belief that Trump has held consistently in public, and likely truly believes, is that Obama has been that total failure.

If you have a problem with the policies Obama failed to enact, direct your anger to the GOP-house and their obstructionist policies.
Pretty typical blind-eye leftist propaganda! Why blame the GOP-house? Did Bush die? ... Surely, Obama couldn't possibly ever have any responsibility ... for his own shortcomings and failures.

Substitute "Hillary" or "Obama" for "Trump" and answer your own question.

meanwhile... the clinton foundation was served with a subpoena by the justice department today. Everyone know it is always good to vote for a politician that is part of a federal investigation. They must be the truthful ones.

Of course the GOP always has their favorite "Well, I don't remember" to fall back on.

You're joking, right? If you think successful & rich = rational & well balanced, you apparently never heard of Howard Hughes.
