I also read this:”but I did actually think Trump might be different.He started strong-ish, cutting some fluff from our plethora of alphabet agencies, but after the first increase in military spending anyone could have seen this new budget coming.”

He was not going to veto this bill, that would require a firm position as to the rejection in addition to the hard work required. Even under the best of circumstances this was going to be a $1T budget, there are no potential significant cuts.

Well, I heard numerous people say they were voting for Trump because he was going to "shake up Washington" (their words, not mine). They truly believed Trump's outsider gimmick.

We have BIG problems.
Would a hybrid candidate have worked better ?

Sometimes I do believe Trump might do much better with just a drink or two . It can works wonders for anxiety and untightness. He might even tweet less and less.

The question now becomes, given what we know about Trump in recent days , would many of his fans still vote for him. Throughout the internet, the number of disgruntled and unhappy Trump base fans is quite staggering.

[quote=desertdetroiter;51405795]Strange how Trump won, yet none of you right wingers voted for him.

Ain’t that something? Funny how that works.

Well I didn't vote for him and I said back before the election that I was not going to vote for either of them. What's funny to me is the fact that you talk a lot about things you know nothing about. Perfect example of Reagans saying about It is not that our liberals friends are ignorant but that they know so much that isn't so. LOL! You are proof of that
