Business, economics, the media, persuasion. Most of the things that are important in a president, especially in the current environment.


#423

You got any link where he discusses any of these and comes off as he knows his shit? Perhaps some interview while he was running for president, or some interview after being elected


#424

Haha I love this. I’m going to start using it.

Yeah, I’ve read the Strauss–Howe generational theory and they probably have the best views on all that stuff. That’s a good point.

So, I provided you some examples to make my point but you haven’t really provided any examples more than just tell me to google it myself. It doesn’t come off very convincing. But, we can leave it at this.

I dont teach.

A lot of words now. Then you try the usual…‘but you don’t understand blah blah…’.

But taking YOUR original words at face value.

You compared Democrats politicians as being equivalent to nutjobs shooting up schools etc.

Thems your words.

His single most important qualification is that he won the 2016 Presidential election.

Winning a US election, especially a national election, is (outside Constitutional requirements) literally the only qualification necessary to hold many Federal offices in the USA, including the US Presidency. It’s both sufficient and necessary to holding the office of POTUS.

The vast majority of Europeans (and many Americans) are horrified by it. For them it’s a bug. For most Americans, though, it’s a feature. It’s one of the things that makes America exceptional.

Did you try googling that article in WSJ i gave a few threads earlier, or is that too hard to do?

just remember, Americans don’t care nor lose sleep over this.

But to humor you, from the article:

“the leftists hate Mr. Trump’s vulgarity, his unwillingness to walk away from a fight, his bluntness, his certainty that America is exceptional, his mistrust of intellectuals, his love of simple ideas that work, and his refusal to believe that men and women are interchangeable. WORST OF ALL, HE HAS NO IDEALOGY EXCEPT GETTING THE JOB DONE. His goals are to do the task in front of him, not be pushed around, and otherwise enjoy himself. In short, he is a typical American - except exaggerated, because he has no constraints to cramp his style except the ones he himself invents.”

++++++

You keep hitting your head against the wall, asking WHY WHY WHY?
Sometimes the answers are so simple and right HERE in front of you.

I thought it makes America great. :grin:

Typical American?
Billionaire Donald Trump born into life as a multi millionaire and life of luxury?

Except for that TYPICAL AMERICAN the typical American didn’t vote for him.
He didn’t win the popular vote of the people that bothered to vote.

IDEALOGY…Is that a Trumpism or typical of a Typical American spelling :). I like it though. Idealogy…


#437

And yet “Joe blow beer belly country folk” would rather vote for a billionaire who lives in a gold house with his name literally written on the side then a democrat.

Yikes!


#438

stop whining about the result , he WON now put the tissues away and move on boy


#439

Hehe good Idealogy.
