Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Tuesday said he’s no more liberal than former President Ronald Reagan.
“Ronald Reagan was a Democrat and he was sort of liberal,” Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “He was a Democrat with a liberal bent and he became a great conservative. … He had something very special. … If you think of it, he was a little bit less conservative than people think, but he had a great heart and I have a great heart.”
Will every other candidate get equal time to what Fox is giving Trump?
He got 1/2 hour last nigh.
He is getting another 1/2 hour tonight.
When he gets to define the conversation Trump sounds far more like a serious candidate.
But how he performs under fire is the test of how he would act as president.
Presidents do not get do-overs.
If some world leader makes our president blow his top we all see it and we all suffer for his lack of maturity.
Example? Obama sending the dali lahma out in the snow by the trash exist. Obama offending the Brits over and over by sending back the Churchill bust, giving the queen tapes of his own speeches, giving the PM a cheap gift from the WH gift shop. Obama leaving a PM to cool his heels while he ate dinner. Obama inviting a fasting leader to a meal. Obama treating the Kurds like a JV team.
@Nanny G: Trump comparing himself to Reagan—-who buys that?
” kurds like JV” did you mean ISIS?
Trump supporters—-primarily Tea Party. watch for switch to Cruz as this process moves into 2016. Huck holds Evangelicals–Rubio and Kasich compete for establishment Repubs. Dr. Carson there to pick up pieces if need be.
Fiorina will compete for Veep and will replace Christie or Paul in next debate..
I meant Obama treats the Kurds like a JV team.
He had, up until now, been running by any aid to the Kurds through the anti-Kurd government in Baghdad or thought the anti-Kurd government in Turkey.
OTOH, he has allowed ISIS to get its hands on (then USE in battle!) more than $1 billion worth of US equipment, weapons and vehicles.
Why aren’t we putting GPS on all our stuff in war zones?
A self-destruct device would be even better.
At least we could blow up our own stuff once ISIS takes it. perhaps even killing a few of those ISIS fighters with it.
At the very least we would know exactly where ISIS is taking our stuff.
We’re babysitting the wrong guys.
And giving the keys to the cars to the other wrong guys.
