Donald Trump, 8/02/15

Meet The Press Transcript - August 2, 2015 - NBC News
Yep, hes a pathetic fraud. First Dishonest Donald bragged about self funding as he slammed mega donors and other candidates for having them, he now has mega donors. Then Dishonest Donald slammed SuperPacs and other candidates for having them, he now has a SuperPac. Then Dishonest Donald slams pollsters saying he doesn't want or need one, he now has a pollster....and the flip-flopping fraud continues....

Matt Bevin in Kentucky and Rick Scott in Florida, two non-political, business experience only candidates for Governor in their respective states used Fabrizio. Both won, coming from far back. May be something to the candidate profile.

Yes, it was. That kind of dog whistle racism is always effective at swaying people who are racist at their core. It's nothing to be proud of, though.

But that seems to be the kind of voter Trump is attracting.

And remember Scott Walker? Apparently we were terrified of him.
Democrats are Terrified of Scott Walker. They Should Be.

And Rick Perry. He had us all wetting our pants in fear. Why? Well... because of a graph.

Of course this is nothing new. We were afraid of Mitt Romney. Don't believe that? Well, just ask... Mitt Romney.
Romney: Democrats Are 'Afraid Of Facing Me'

And who isn't afraid of Caribou Barbie?
Sarah Palin scared Democrats | Las Vegas Review-Journal

That's it! I definitely need a spreadsheet to keep track of all these losers who have us Democrats quaking in our political boots!
You speak of "fear", being "afraid", etc.

If I were a dem/wanted hillary, §1924 is what I think you should indeed "fear" be "afraid" of. This is no "fantasy".


"§1924. Unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents or material

(a) Whoever, being an officer, employee, contractor, or consultant of the United States, and, by virtue of his office, employment, position, or contract, becomes possessed of documents or materials containing classified information of the United States, knowingly removes such documents or materials without authority and with the intent to retain such documents or materials at an unauthorized location shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for not more than one year, or both."

If you feel no fear exists for dems/her on the matter by her actions in regards to the law, then you are saying she's above the law as stated/the law doesn't apply to her as is so clearly stated by §1924?

Fabrizio, Manafort, Christie....Trump's line-up is really resembling the cast of Goodfellas.

And I'm not sure why in god's name anyone would boast about Rick's Scott 2010 anemic 1% win. Scott won by 1% because Sink was as horrible as he was. It was a toss up between two really horrible people. Scott has pretty much sucked as a very unpopular governor and Perry lost. He was Romney's guy also. Romney lost. Never heard of this famous 'kingmaker' before.

Trump's 'authenticity' is no longer enough to get him elected? Apparently he needs the mafia, as well.

How do you explain Scott's win in 2014 ?

Oddly enough, I do not recall Bob Dole, Pat Buchanan, Rick Perry or Ron Paul winning their respective presidential elections.
Yep. The list has a long string of losers.

Anybody remotely connected with the Bushes is kryptonite to me
