If anybody remembers the show Family Ties, one character was a conservative teenager named Alex Keaton who idolized Richard Nixon.
I suspect that in two decades, in response to their snowflake parents, there will be a wave of youthful conservative clubs where kids will celebrate Donald Trump.
Assuming there is an America, of course.

You're lying. Stop lying.
"He said nothing about it at the moment when people were begging him to stand down. Then he called them patriots and he said he loved them. He's on the record. That's on camera. In his statements. Those are his own words." John King

To defend a liar by calling someone else a liar is sad, but I am not surprised.

This is neither pro or anti Trump, just a question about something I've been curious about.

Why the animosity from Trump supporters for the Republicans they call RINOs? Same conservative beliefs and principles, just without the blind devotion to Trump to follow his lead regardless of the situation. I know the so-called RINOs occasionally support bipartisan initiatives, but that's hardly new. It's called putting nation and/or constituents ahead of Party. And that's the true spirit of America. Heck, Reagan would be called a RINO by most Trump supporters. He was great for the Republican Party, but he sure as heck put nation first and bipartisanship was not scarce as hen's teeth when he was President..

Actually those Republicans are patriots. Those who refuse to stand up to Trump and his lies are the cowards.

I will agree that he has done the worst since Nixon. Joe Biden could have been easily dispatched but Trump could not shut up. He lost the election himself.


Please let us know how W did better for the country...this should be interesting
W won 2 terms.

The question was regarding how Trump affected the support for the Republican Party.

Read better.


So, because W won twice he was better for the party? Do you not see that Trump has changed the party forever going forward in a positive way (Latinos, blacks, etc)?

And...don't chastise someone for being pedantic earlier if you're going to tell me to "read better", dumbass

Trump ruined everything he accomplished in 3 1/2 years in the past six weeks. And he did so because he is a narcissistic megalomaniac who really cares nothing for the country and only for himself. He is a bad man and there is no legitimate defense for his actions. And for those wanting to compare or contrast to W, at least recognize W is a good man who had the nations best interest at heart. Was he our best president? No...but he is and was thoughtful, well read, and focused on what he believed was best for this great nation.

Have you already got your Biden button, Kamala's Next ribbon and Pelosi pin? Do you not think the Democrats are going to run roughshod over the Constitution and laugh about it? But you've put that mean man in the corner; congratulations.

Thy did actually recognize and charge one liberal extremist inflator who got into the Capitol and was egging it on. Has claimed he was there as a journalist to document the events but no one is buying it. Guy's name is Sullivan, not remembering off the top of my head where he's from. Wouldn't be surprising if they ID a few more. 'Other Side' infiltration of events like that is nothing new.

I addressed this lie in another thread. But since you've tried it again here:

Flat out lie. Period. "In the moment", Trump did give a speech. On Twitter. And he did call his supporters patriots and said he loved them.

He also told them to disperse and go home in peace.

That's in the record as well. Or it was. Remember, Twitter cancelled the speech "in the moment".

You and King are playing revisionist history. Rather badly, I might add. In the future, if you're going to try distort a narrative and rewrite history, you might wish to wait more than a week before making the attempt.

New York Times compiled list of insults he hurled on Twitter in his presidential Term. Only shows part of the text, but "fake news" is listed 789 times, "fake" is 1035 (fake msn news, fake cnn, etc)

Pathetic 48
Weak 143
Crazy 166.
dummy 22
Fail 314

CNN, New York Times, MSN have a stunning amount of insults hurled their way.

No other President (including both Bush' and Reagan) fought so publicly and directly with the press. Is it any wonder that there wasn't bias in the reporting? That they weren't happy about writing horrible articles about him? He reveled in it.

the republican party has been worse than useless. They pretend to oppose the democrats but don't really. They are the Washington Generals to the Democrat Globetrotters.

Good riddance to the old GOP party.

How about Bush I and Bush II? Took the conservative momentum we had in the 80s and sqaundered it. They created Trump. Trump leading the assault on the GOP elite and establishment quite well. It's not over by a long shot.

Events have transpired so that the GOP wont win if it can't duplicate Trump populist appeal. The establishment creatures in the party will begin to shift to the democrats and younger up and coming politically ambitious but rudderless people will gravitate to the democrats. Much like it did in the 80s and early 90s when the GOP was ascendant. The working class people long taken for granted by the democrats will migrate away to a new home.

This is all part of the party realignment that has been gathering steam for some time.

Bush showed far more leadership in the days after 9/11 than Trump showed in four years.

Depends on what fight you want him to fight.

Yes, I'll give you Bush after 9/11 and on Afganistan. But not on Iraq. And not on his inability to roll back government size or power.

It's almost as if he didn't care about big government, he just thought that he could run it better than the democrats.

If we had our usual response to 9/11, we would have had hearings, made a few announcements, and maybe lobbed a few bombs at al Qaeda. President Bush led us into taking them on directly and wiping them out. Whether or not one agrees with everything Bush did, he clearly taught the Arabs not to mess with the US. He also led the US into ramping up our anti-terrorist actions within this country.

Agreed. He was great after 9/11. Afghanistan was necessary. Iraq, not so much. The latter was, I think, motivated more by the neo-con arrogance and naivete to use US power to remake the world into a western style democracy rather than the conservative desire to use US power to protect ourselves and make the world have a healthy respect for our power.

We most certainly have the most inept and pathetic president ever now occupying the WH. Trump is a relative super president comparatively.
