Smarmy or full of confidence because he has Trump by the balls?

Before all this trump stuff he was riding horseback shirtless and scoring hat tricks playing with professional hockey players. Heís been like this for a long time pre-trump with that little untouchable smirk

The unending gaslighting from Republicans is really a sight to behold. I honestly wonder how they can keep it up. Iím watching election coverage on BBC, and even a very independent, international news org canít find an honest Republican. Every conversation sounds like:

Newsperson: people have criticized that Trump is sending 15000 active soldiers to the border and spending billions of unbudgeted dollars to do so in order to deal with a couple thousand unarmed Hondurans who would like to legally seek asylum. This is especially troubling since he has accused the Hondurans of harbouring criminals or terrorists with no evidence whatsoever, and despite that their goal of legal asylum would require thorough background checks.

Republican: well, lots of people might not like his tone. I wish heíd be more presidential too! But heís just protecting us, and look at the economy!

Newsperson, easy distracted from the unanswered question: the economy is going great, though many of the gains are empty as they could be the result of hugely inflationary policy in an already strong environment.

Republican: cites record numbers while ignoring that 90% of the gains happened under Obama, and that Trumpís cuts and changes have had negative effects on net revenue despite perfect conditions.


Itís like they are speaking different languages, and Republicans seem to have noticed that so long as they keep calling everyone else a liar, theyíll keep being believed by people whoís worst slur would be being called a liberal. I donít know where things go from here, but it is going to get worse before it gets better, and every single person who votes Republican needs to be aware that theyíre supporting people who would literally prefer people not vote than vote Democrat, and would happily have people vote Republican based on lies even if those same people would not have if they were accurately informed.

It's interesting to me that Pete Ricketts is going to win by a huge margin, but that is basically the same margin that the Initiative 427 about Medicaid expansion passed by, an Initiative that would have been unnecessary if Ricketts had opted into Medicaid expansion in the first place. I would love to pick the brains of the people who voted to re-elected Pete, but voted yes on 427. I believe there is a large gap in the policy beliefs of people, and the way they actually vote

all the polling shows that people vote against their policy beliefs often. Things like gun control for example poll against the standard Republican position even among Republicans.

I was reading a bit on this from Craig Calcaterra and some other Ohioans today. I think often people vote for comfortable/familiar names without much knowledge for their policy, or do so while purposely ignoring the policies that person will be ďforcedĒ to vote for because their party will put it through.

I have a cousin who's first name is Mike.

There's no point in that, I just felt like posting in the politics thread and being absolutely Switzerland about it all, neutral and boring.

Thatís pretty solid. I saw in Mississauga they had a guy running named Butt and I really applaud anyone with that name deciding to do something that involves plastering your name all over town.

I think that Sheldon dude missed an opportunity though. You canít tell me in a primary of 17 Republicans in 2016, a guy frigging named Whitehouse who was actually an elected Republican wouldnít have gotten enough jokey support to get pretty damn far.

Sudbury just had an election. Brian Bigger defeated Tay Butt.

I'm not good at posting pics/links, but that Bush letter to Clinton is a clear cut example of how things should be, and what it meant before to have civility and gravitas shown by our leaders, and hopefully exercised by the masses in society.

I can't believe that was 25years ago, I guess I sound like an old guy talking about 'kids today', but its really sad how leaders/people act today compared to what it used to be like. Democrat-Republican, Liberaal-Conservative didnt mean mortal enemies, it was just a difference of opinion. Now we have this moron, and I dont even know what came first, the moron or his sheep.
