    Ha! Poor Kasich was trying to eat some pancakes then all of the sudden he had all these cameras and microphones shoved in his face. Geez! You can't even eat in peace. :smile:

    People are sick & tired of carefully scripted talking points from career politicians, and it shows in the election results.

    And Kasich supplied presidential hopeful an opportunity to display just some more of his (Trump’s) general character level and diplomatic acumen.

    This is true. He has been the adult in the room and has not engaged in school yard antics.

    Trump’s a populist AND loose cannon opportunist with no core value set that I’ve seen to date. In addition, he’s quite juvenile in my view; and his overall temperament demonstrates he lacks wisdom as well. A dangerous combination for the office of POTUS...

    That's not the point and you know it. Milibank's opinion isn't the issue; it's the yet-another hypocrisy tossed up by Trump, criticizing others for using teleprompters and then using them himself to deliver a scripted speech. How did you miss that with your assessment about Trump and scripted talking points?

    You're missing my point; when I say "talking points", I mean very carefully researched, market-tested issues that professional politicians spend a holy fortune on focus groups, trying to guarantee that they'll say the right thing.

    Does that sound like Trump to you? Trump is either someone who says outrageous things, unrehearsed and off-the-cuff, or he's reliant on a teleprompter.

    You can't have it both ways.

    He's trying to. That's why his rehearsed, TelePrompTer speech was newsworthy. He can't even avoid insincerity about being sincere.

    All politicians tell lies. But Trump IS a lie. He's showing it everyday now. There will be a time when he lies about something that matters to you and you find out about it. It's already happening of course, but you're not willing to look. No problem. Have at it. It won't matter anyway.

    I’ve definitely been wrong before on national election outcomes; yet I do believe Trump will NOT be the Republican nominee. He’s a divisive candidate (could be his mission), who can’t even unite Republican voters (a third have an unfavorable opinion of him). His polling negative numbers are in fact even higher (Can you believe that?) than Hillary’s. And both front-runners (Trump and Clinton) have the highest negative ratings than any front-runner for either party since 1984, when CBS began polling voters on the question Poll: Trump, Clinton score historic unfavorable ratings - CNNPolitics.com.

    It’s my contention that Trump would be a general election disaster-in-the-making due to his high unfavorable ratings among all voters—which includes (single-handedly) 70 per cent among women.

    Like lying about abandoning Americans to die overseas?

    Something like that?

    Keep telling yourself that. It's all you have to hang your hopes upon.

    To the Hillary Clinton minions, neither that nor anything else as to her disasters just DO NOT matter whatsoever Bruce. Neither do her clear absence of qualification and trustworthiness. Her term as SECSTATE just further exposed her incompetence (the job was always just too big for her). Regrettably, this is what we end up with when it comes to political appointees who were not reliably vetted…

    P.S. As I've mentioned before … HRC could never have been granted either a TS (Top Secret), and most certainly not a TS/SCI (Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented information) security clearance via conducting a legitimate background investigative process. Absolutely no way …

    As usual, you have no basis for this. I'm no fan of Clinton, but this is just silly. Please state the disqualifying factor or factors, backed up by evidence. Alternatively, we'll chalk this up to another episode of Clinton Derangement Syndrome.

    Are you delusional or just daft? Does her rampant mishandling of sensitive /even highest level classified documents remotely register with you? Oh never mind…

    Except that hasn't been shown.

    There's a certain element in this country who will, just like with Obama, try to make her out to be an illegitimate President. Fortunately, the majority of Americans know better.

    Hillary Clinton is as weak a candidate as anyone the Democrats could have. Yet she'll still win. That would bug me, too.

    It's quite obvious that all of you are delusional and daft. Each and every one of you.

    In fact, I'm the only one around here who is not delusional and daft. Indeed, not one of you has ever been able to refute any of my political positions whatsoever.

    (Of course, I haven't expressed any political positions, but the principle still holds.)

    So keep nipping at each other . . . you still won't be able to refute me. Um, so there.
