Good. We need it. I think he represents why I've been so out of touch and nostalgic since I was a young kid. I started watching news when? 1993? 1994? That's right around the time of the "globalization" everyone talks about.

I used to wonder "What changed?" and I hear from older people how there used to be more freedoms, less rules, less policies, less restrictions. It seems like the world, for a guy like me, used to be a much better place. If he's the guy to rip the new butthole to all these globalist elites, that is a very good thing.

Teens in High School used to drive during lunch to get McDonalds. Try doing that now and it's like a school-lockdown policy. People used to smoke in waiting rooms, even into the early 90s. Now I'm told I can't (literally) cross a line in the waiting room with a CUP OF COFFEE. A cup of coffee.

Who makes these rules? Who are these freaks? It's time to find them and put them in their place. Trump terrifies them because they've tried to create this world, and people hate it and are rebelling and he's the ultimate threat to it.

It's the angry good guy outrage from films like Falling Down.

A few election night notes.

- Robby Mook had a feeling "something bad was about to happen".

- Her written concession speech was "tucked away".

- Trump's numbers in Florida weren't just big, they were unreal. In Polk County, Hillary received 3,000 votes more than Obama, but Trump received 25,000 votes more than Romney did in 2012.

"Florida and North Carolina don't look great, we need to see if this is a Southeast problem." Hillary was stone-faced and nodded and said "Okay" over and over calmly to Mook.

Bill Clinton said, "It's like Brexit. I guess it's real."

The White House phoned Robby Mook at 11pm and said, "The President doesn't think it's wise to drag this out."

It's quite telling how frantic Obama and other people in the Clinton camp were at wanting her to concede very quickly.

An accidental one-termer who set race relations back 70+ years.

Accidental? He lead a populist revolt and beat a Bush and a Clinton. Hardly an accident. Gerald Ford was an "accidental one termer".

Yeah but Trump is President, and we already got Gorsuch. Just wait, libfools.

I wanted her to pick Vilsack. He would have helped in the Midwest with rural whites and might not have embarassed himself against Mike Pence. It probably wouldn't have made a difference, but if I were her I'd have chosen Vilsack.

Does the book say if her speculated consideration of James Stavridis was ever serious?

No mention of him.

This book really shows the fractures in the Democratic Party.

After the DNC, someone came up to Robby Mook and complimented the large American flags in the arena. Mook later told two friends, "That was to hide the crazy people shouting things."

It also seems this election clearly showed a loss for meritocracy, atleast for 2016.

After her "win" in the second debate, her aides told her, "You did a really good job...but we don't know how it will be perceived."

A few notes from her VP selection process.

- She wasn't too impressed with Warren, and Elizabeth Warren wasn't a popular figure around the Obama White House.

- Bill Clinton favored Tom Vilsack

- Tom Perez was unimpressive and "didn't make the cut."

- Her final shortlist was Kaine, Vilsack, Warren and Booker.

The man really just builds his support around stupid white guys

He represents everything alot of men wish we were.

Famous, on TV shows, in films, cameo appearances from Wrestlemania to The Jeffersons. More gorgeous women then most men will ever make love to in our lives. Money beyond belief. A gorgeous wife, beautiful successful surprisingly down to Earth children. Wonderful grandchildren. Mansions and casinos and private jets. Now he's topped it off by being the President of the United States.

Who WOULDN'T want to be Donald Trump? I sure as hell would love to be in his shoes.

Your support for Trump is a consequence of your own insecurities? What a surprise.

Sure? Why not? If African Americans can have "emotional investment" in Barack Obama, why can't I have it in Donald Trump?

When he had a Christmas time victory tour rally, after he defeated Hillary Clinton in December, he went on a mini-rant about how Time's "PERSON OF THE YEAR" used to be called "MAN OF THE YEAR". I stared at the CNN screen and thought, "Oh my God, it's me." LOL

This is the most pathetic thing I've ever read in my life. I sh**t you not.

You should be proud to have a Republican President from your state of New York.

There are far better white males in which to have an 'emotional investment' than Donald Trump. I prefer political leaders who act 60 (like Barack Obama) than those who act 20 (like Trump).   

I tried that with George W. Bush and John McCain and Mitt Romney but you guys all treated them just as badly.

I'm interested in reading it, but my emotions about that night are still pretty raw. There were definitely problems with the candidate and her campaign, but that in no way a justifies electing an outright authoritarian and demagogue to the White House.

Eventually, Trump voters will see this beyond strict party ID and ideology: he is and always has been wrong for our country, and better suited for a dictatorship.

Jeez. Calm down. He's not THAT bad.

He got caught on a hot mic bragging about raping women

Well, not raping. Just sexually assaulting a married woman. As she was walking towards him. I can't believe that's a distinction that must be made and I also can't believe how quickly Republicans have forgiven it. Partisanship is a pretty sad thing.

Incorrect.

He was bragging about how being famous allowed him to get laid. 11 years ago. When he told Billy Bush "They let me do it because I'm famous", sure...it was uncouth, but letting him do it implies "consent".

If Trump walked on water, you liberals would say he couldn't swim.

Before he said that they let him do anything he also said "I don't even wait" which implies that he was not asking for consent.

I think the generalization of Trump is ridiculous coming from liberals who always say "Don't generalize". He attacks Rosie O'Donnell. That doesn't mean he attacks "women". He attacks the Khan father. That doesn't mean he attacks "Gold star families".

If he yelled at one crazy liberal employee of a Wal-Mart, would that mean "Donald Trump yells at Wal-Mart employee(S)?" plural? No. He yelled at one.

"I moved on her. I tried, and I failed." If he was a "rapist" he wouldn't be saying how he "failed". You guys are ridiculous. This is why you lose elections.

This is why feminists always scream about all the rapes that go unpunished. Because under the actual law, they are not actual rapes.

The White House was worried that Hillary might not concede. There was a divergence between Obama, who knew Trump had clearly won the election and wanted to begin a smooth transition, and Hillary Clinton, who was clinging to whatever hope that she might somehow win.

Obama then called John Podesta.

"It's done. Realize that. Deal with it with dignity and move on."

Podesta told Obama she wasn't ready to face the public and they were still hoping for a miracle. Obama didn't see any point in prolonging the inevitable.

As Trump gave his victory speech, Bill sat on a couch and chomped on a cigar.

I bought the book and read a good bit of it last night.

Election night section was rather...uneventful. It really seems like it was a shock in the most extreme sense of the word. No panic, just utter disbelief.

They knew Ohio was gone about a week to ten days prior to the election and Michigan was very dicey. They still just couldn't believe he could actually pull it out.

19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Most Democrats STILL Say Trump Didn't Win (from latest polls) on: April 16, 2017, 12:46:25 pm
Liberals thought they had this myth of the "permanent lock" of the electoral college. I was trying to warn them, I guess, many times during the year that white voters are very intermittent, and that many Obama voters I knew were voting for Trump.

I also noted the difference between suburban Ohio/Pennsylvania/Florida whites versus Colorado/Virginia/New Hampshire whites.

More college degrees, more money. (The number one reason many I know can't move to "Fairfax" or "Boulder" is because it would cost us a fortune.) Definitely more politically correct.

Trump seems to do well in the blue collar states (Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan) whereas I think more upscale whites in Virginia and Colorado will be a problem for him. Florida I have no clue.

This usually resulted in responses like eyerolls or "lol" as if I was the idiot.

Donald Trump.

He basically took all of my "Reaganfan nostalgia" threads and turned them into a national campaign to the White House.

I do like the idea of going green. Perhaps that's a compromise we can agree with our liberal friends on.
