NO! - You face it: he's never going to cure cancer, he's never going to enact a single payer health care system, he's never going to negotiate a peaceful solution to North Korea. He's a poser - a user - a con man and snake oil salesman. You've bought into the whole flim flam, and now you want to blame ME because I never did believe it? You want to tell me I wouldn't like it if he did any of those things? You're wrong. I would like it. He'd still be a horse's ass, but at least he'd be one who did something wonderful. Instead, he's just a horse's ass ... and I'll pay big odds he always will be.

Of course not. The voters did not elect him to do that. Why would you say such a silly thing?

It is a public relations axiom that:

"No publicity is bad publicity."

Since Trump declared his candidacy for the Republican party nomination, he's done what's necessary to dominate the media.

His tweet storm is non-stop.

And here we are, calling yet more attention to his antics.

And his "base" is ever more solidified.

His base is solidified because he is attempting to enact his platform. We recognize that the republicans in Congress are thwarting this.

Indeed.
The obvious contradiction is:
our Republican leaders, including Speaker Ryan and Majority Leader McConnell along with many if not most of our other high ranking Republican leaders are also often opposed to Trump.

Obama went public with his opposition to Trump:

"When I see people trying to undo that hard won progress for the 50th or 60th time, with bills that would raise costs or reduce coverage, will roll back protections for older Americans or people with pre-existing conditions, it is aggravating."
President Obama addressing "GOALKEEPERS" audience, Summer of 2017
Late Night TV talk host Steven Colbert in reply:
"Sir, I know you're famously even-keeled, but Americans are more than aggravated. I'm pouring bourbon on my breakfast, and my breakfast is scotch."


That's fine.
We might expect opposition from the opposite party.

But U.S. President Bush (at least as much a Republican as Trump), while at West Point reportedly accepting the Thayer Award, also spoke in opposition to Trump, even if not by name.

So the establishment opposition to Trump is bipartisan.

And the notable thing about that is, these national leaders of both parties are elected by the People. With the exception of Bush they all got a plurality of the votes to gain public office.

So to assert that opposing Trump is to oppose the will of the People is a pointless, conspicuous fiction.
It is Trump that has since before the start, literally since before his inauguration, not had majority support.

And what little I've read of it indicates Trump's support has mainly diminished rather than increased since January 20.

How can anyone defend an elitist believing he's helping those in need by throwing rolls of paper towels at them? But they do defend him.
Critical thinking skills never were the rights strong point.

Piffle.

William F. Buckley Jr. lead the charge on innovative political thought during the aft end of the 20th Century.

Since then George Will has been there for us, another AWESOME political conservative!

Harvard President Larry Summers (served as Tres. Sec. @ Clinton 2nd Term) raised deliberately provocative but un-PC questions about biological ( intellectual) differences between men & women. A minor fluff-up resulted. Summers has apologized 3 times so far. ABC-TV's George Will responds:
Quote:
"Summers simply forgot where he was. He thought he was at a place where there was free intellectual inquiry. He wasn't. He was at Harvard. He was on an American campus, where certain ideas simply can't be thought. The idea that there might be innate, which is to say genetically based cognitive differences between the sexes is not a radical thought. There's a huge body of science investigating it. By mentioning it, he induced in that poor woman [MIT Professor Nancy Hopkins] something like a clinical description of Freudian hysteria. She was going to fall down on the carpet and swoon with vapors and muss up her crinolines. This is what feminism has produced? This frail flower who can't stand to be in the presence of an idea like that."
"This major grovel's ridiculous. All he's done is dramatize that Harvard like most American campuses believes in diversity in everything but thought." Will
I LOVE that guy!

And not a public prayer shared between them. That is the kind of conservative I respect also.
