I'd bet Trump considers his male organ his number one job qualification.
Rubio was the one to bring up the "male organ" stuff. Let me guess the left wing media left that part out.

Not so fast. First, one can't just do a 180 degree turn on a matter of torture and following the Geneva Convention and expect that to get a pass. We expect anyone who is running for president to abide by the law as a minimum and we also expect candidates to be knowledgeable enough about national matters like torture to know that it violates U.S. and international laws and conventions. Since he had to reverse himself after learning of this, it means Mr. Trump is woefully ignorant on many fundamentals needed to be president.

Thanks for letting us know. I was under the impression that we had an election in 2008 and again in 2012 and Mr. Obama won handily. Thanks for setting me straight that he's really a dictator. Who knew?

First, there is a difference between political correctness and vile, filter-free, gutter speech that's unbecoming the leader of this nation. We should all note the difference.

Second, If you are going to accuse the Obama Administration of lawlessness you have an obligation to cite the lawlessness you are referring. I don't know of any.

Third, we don't have open boarders. See the definition. EU countries have open boarders, where persons can move from one EU country to another without border checks. The U.S. doesn't have that.

Trump is popular among a particular segment, people who feel afraid of outsiders and want someone who seems strong to fix their problems. He's their f'you candidate. The fact remains that while Mr. Trump talks tough on everything, he hasn't demonstrated details on how he will accomplish those goals. The two plans that he did release, his tax-plan and his health plan are a complete disconnect from what he said he wants to do. The tax-plan bestows yuge tax-cuts on the wealthy and blows up the deficit. His health plan throws millions off of their current plan and forces them to save money to afford medical care, which most people can't do.

I wasn't exactly thrilled with that either. Trump did not have to respond. He chose to bring it up on national TV.

If Trump wants to talk about his penis.....he should see a urologist.

Maybe so but Trump has mentioned it at his rallies every since. Over and over again because he want everyone in America to know he thinks he's got a big one. He's like a little boy who can't let go of anything. No pun intended.

"gutter speech"?

Apparently Hillary frequently uses the "f bomb" in conversation and is very vulgar. http://selwynduke.typepad.com/selwyn...-vulgar-m.html


This is the funny thing about those who support Hillary- they cannot assume "the higher ground" on any issue, as Hillary and Bill are as corrupt and vile as they come. Hilllary has a very lurid past which has been effectively concealed by the media, but will be revealed in complete clarity in the general election- and it will be very ugly. Imagine the debates and all of the political ads, which will replay Hillary's own words and show how cold and corrupt she actually is. It's hard to hide from your past in a political campaign when you are facing an opponant that has no reservations about revealing such issues and has very deep pockets.

I'll bet the "what difference does it make" line, coupled with tear jerking accounts of the Benghazi victim's families will be great. The "who do you want to answer the 3am phone call" 2008 ad, coupled with all the disasters in the Middle East will be great. Put in a few pro-NAFTA, pro-China, fake "war on women" lines coupled with Bill's assaults, and pro Wall Street lines Hillary has stated, as well as her love for Saul Allinsky, and you have a set of very entertaining ads.

This issue is a non-sequiteur. Trump adjusted his stance for public
consumption because in reality the Geneva Convention guidelines
are violated consistently when there is a need to do so, and often
when there is not. War crimes and clandestine operations are a
fact of life.

"I, (name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States,
and I will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States."

As THE ONLY Commander In Chief of the military agencies, the President commands those
who are sworn to defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
and to direct their actions in the fulfillment of this responsibility.

These duties supercede international treaties. His responsibility is to the
people of the United States.

I shouldn't have to inform anyone that the Geneva Convention guidelines have
been violated by numerous Presidents, world leaders, world militaries, weapons
manufacturers, and thousands of mercenary soldiers and contracted assets
who are paid by the US government and other governments.
I can assure you that many people were tortured by those employed by the
Pentagon and others. There are secret "unofficial" prisons in places like
the Balkans and in Poland and even the Ukraine, and even on islands where
under-the-radar interrogation techniques involving a whole lot more than
pouring water on someone's face take place.

Do you really thing I give a flying fig what is being posted here. Trump 2016.

So what's the plan with Trump, move to China and work in one of his sweat shops?

And this treatise is related to Trump and the Geneva Convention how?

Interesting logic !!! To go along with it Americans have regular appointments with the proctologist. If you want to keep your proctologist you can ? Please clap !!!
