    this reminds me of a situation........


    That worked out well for the GOP, didn't it?


    Who could be his "Stockdale" ? Ventura? Nugent? maybe Gene Simmons?

    I know, he could select them on the next season of "The Apprentice" ?
    Like Bernie Sanders, he's also opposed to TPP and other trade deals good for multinationals and bad for workers.

    The Democrats really, really need Trump to do well, capture as many headlines with his drama queen antics in order to scare the voters. The meaner, leaner, more insane they can paint the other guy, the better chance they have of winning. The Democratic party hasn't won an election since Carter, they simply demonize. Fear is the greatest motivator and the whole design of these guys is to terrify people at the alternative.

    The Donald is winning a name recognition contest fueled by the MSM, the Donal is a geek, a one man carnival side show, and like most side shows people will go out of their way to see it.

    But there are two draw backs to this false backing of him, one it makes the rest of the Republican candidates look very palatable in comparison and two, if they are really successful in propping him up, the US may just have President Donald Trump.

    What oh what will they do then?

    The truth is, the Donaldis in this for the Donald, and has about zero chance of winning. The dems are so terrified of this coming election they need this

In a State wide race where 500 votes was the difference, those two were significant factors in Gore losing Florida.

    Your less than gracious apology is noted and accepted.

    Thanks for admitting that (had you simply read the KOS article).... you aren't aware there were more than 3 candidates. Candidates like the WWP Moorehead cost Gore, just as much, if not more so than Nader.
    The KOS article broke down "defecters", but you know ... you can't be bothered.

    Your white flag is noted, a 2nd time.

    There are fringe candidates in every State - the two that turned Florida were Nader and Buchanan - you were wrong, period.

    Moorehead, according to your own link which you presumably failed to look at or you wouldn't be embarrassing yourself this way, received about 1800 votes to Nader's 97,500 and you're going to try to tell us that Moorehead cost Gore Florida? You're hilarious. In fact, Buchanan took away far more of Gore's vote than Moorehead received in total.

    But hey, like the Knight in Monty Python, I do appreciate your need to continue to claim victory as your legs are chopped out from under you.

    And since Donald Trump is good buds with Hillary and Bill, personally inviting them both to his most recent wedding, and since The Donald has lavished both of them with his money in support of her political ambitions and Bill's vanity projects, I suspect the little man will be linked to the Clintons far more than the GOP in the coming months.
    And yet his overwhelming political support comes from Republicans.

    Every time I am forced to yet witness another election process for the brain dead masses I can't help but think: an orchestrated B movie at its best.

    You are fired Mr. Trump

    The support he currently has. All of it coming from Republicans and the right-wing.
