so, the stranger is rooting for Rubio to get the nomination, then? as the "reasonable" one?
So long as it's not Trump, it really doesn't matter who gets the GOP nom, because if it's NOT Trump, chances are he'll take his toys, his money, his supporters, and his big, fat, racist mouth and spin-off into a third party bid, effectively carving out the craziest of the Republican voters (a relative term, to be sure), thus making it impossible for the vetted candidate to win the election.
@5: please provide a selection of unbiased polls to support your election assertion. your 2nd assertion is absurd. he'd make as good of a president as I would.
actually, worse, as he's a republican. I will concede that he'd be better than cruz.
Obama has, not one, but TWO qualifications as an American citizen. First and foremost, he was born here, so not much else matters. Secondarily, if he hadn't been born here, then his mother's American citizenship would carry the day anyway.
Cruz wasn't born here. He's 100% Canadian by birth, 50% Cuban by paternity, but yes, also American thanks to his mother.
Gee, thanks Mrs. Cruz, for nothing.
And beyond that, HRC is a very known commodity, pretty much everyone already has an opinion on her. Not a lot of minds will be changed one way or the other by the McFuckTon of ads that will be put out by all the RW suuuuper-PACs. Rubio on the other hand, has maaaaany skeletons in his closet (cough, cough: boat, absenteeism, yadda x 3), and once Joe Average Uninformedvoter gets a better look at him... Let's just say a lot of RW'ers will follow Dole's advice and not get out of bed that day.
That's why Trump is popular, because the bigots are tired of being dog-whistled. Or too stupid. Either way, they love a guy who will be open on what they're too chicken-shit to represent on their own.
ISIS...the Islamic State...is our enemy according to Obama who called them thugs.
If we were at war with the Nazi State, would we encourage Nazis to immigrate?
So what is wrong with what Trump is saying?
Hasn't Obama already opened Pandora's Box and Trump is merely following things to their logical conclusion?
Last time I checked, The Constitution grants Congress the power to declare war, not the Executive. Thus far, they haven't declared war on Daesh, presumably because they're not a diplomatically-recognized government of an existing country. President Obama calling them "thugs" =/= a request for a formal declaration of war in any case. And FWIW, the U.S. government actively brought thousands of Nazi's into the country - look up "Operation Paperclip" for some history on this.
You are missing the real effect of Trump.
Trump spat in the wind.
He tugged on Superman's cape.
He messed around with Is-lam.
Trump opened his mouth and said, hey guys, lookee-here.
He made himself a target for the bullets of terrorists.
No other leader has been doing that.
No leader or global superstar or elite has been a target of terror.
It's always a guy going shopping, or flying to a birthday party.
Only Trump has the balls to put himself in the line of fire.
Everyone else cowers.
Oh, and on the John McCain issue, I believe both of his parents were American citizens, living on a U.S. Military base in a (at the time) U.S. Territory.
How BRAVE of Trump to applaud his brown shirt followers when they beat up bystanders!
How BRAVE of Trump to make targets of millions of minority American citizens!
How BRAVE of Trump to ... yeah, what the fuck, the man is obviously a lily livered coward and bigot.
Anyone who sees otherwise is willfully blind and/or also a lily livered coward and bigot.
