    This is the best news since they started putting pockets on shirts... I hope they sell this to the lemmings with the all the gusto they can muster up... We all know what the definition of insanity is " Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results". Albert Einstein...

    I recall a member of USMB having the following as a sig when I first joined... The next Republican President has not been born yet... This individual jumped off the cliff...

    There's a void right now.

    "Right now" being the operative words.

    Just remember 2008: The Democrats thought they had pummeled the GOP into the ash heap of history. Then they went out and over-interpreted their perceived "mandate".

    Let's see how the GOP does.

    Void is the proper description, Mac1958... Success is the material that fills that void... IMHO, pbocare was the only success that he brought the Democratic Party in his first term... Possibly the worst healthcare bill that has ever been shoved down the people of the United States... But the party ate it up because he defied the legislative branch of the Government... This is how he won his second term... Promoting Socialism, Communism and Radical Islam was his downfall and was like spraying Roundup on the DNC in 2016...

    We will have to see how successful the New Administration will be in the future... I gave pbo an opportunity to do great things in 2009 and it did not take very long for him to blow things up for any kind of partisanship...

    The reality is, they are an establishment. The GOP was also until Trump used the protest vote to smash it, Sanders would have done the same had the Democrats believed in fair and honest primaries.

    My opinion is that Democrat supporters shouldn't be angry at this point, they should show some respect for Republicans for the fact that their party allowed a candidate like Trump to be involved and succeed. Not that many didn't try to undermine his chances, but at least he was free to run in the primaries without a great deal of subversive tactics. The will of the people spoke, that was the truest form of democracy we have seen in our lifetimes, as ugly as it was.

    If Biden really wanted to be a leader, he should have run for president, as Obama wanted. As far as I can see Obama rightfully believed Biden would be a better candidate and president than Hillary. I imagine Biden was stepping back for the parties sake and also due to his own personal family tragedy.

    Politics changes so quickly now, it's a different world. I would predict the chances of Biden ever running for president now is slim. The most likely outcome of this current election is that the next person running for Democrats will be an outright socialist. This is why Trump is so going to be so aggressive on jobs. If he fails here the next president will be a socialist and the great nation of America, that beacon of light; will be finished.

    Those who voted for Trump are still in celebratory mode, and that's perfectly understandable.

    But they'd better get past this pretty quickly - the ball is entirely in their court now, and Trump will have maybe two years. After that the next Dem candidate starts firing with both barrels and in earnest.

    Indeed. Here's a hint it will be different though, he is rolling back the system. Everyone realises that China is stabbing America in the back, all of their gains are coming from Americas losses. Yet, noone had the courage to confront it. Not Bush. not Obama. So when they sit for 8 years and wonder "how come I couldn't succeed as I wanted to?" they refuse to admit it's because they didnt't make the real tough choices.

    Trump is rolling back NAFTA, going to punish China and businesses who leave America just for the cheap labour. If he does these things alone, I am going to argue it puts him in a far better spot to address what ails America. As a hardcore laissez-faire economist, it was tough to accept Trumps premises, until he started to speak about details that opened my eyes. 11 Million illegal immigrants, 70,000 factories closed forever, anemic growth rate relative to American history etc. One can't just close their eyes and pretend there isn't an underlying problem.

    Globalization will still exist, but it requires some tweaking and evolution. Trump has seen this from the highest level as a billionaire, global investor. Regardless of how much I didn't like his rhetoric and tone during the election, he knows what is going on globally and he has friends and partners who express what is going on. Now he just has to act on what he knows, even if it shifts the system slightly.

    Whoa, holy crap, you're the only other person I've seen bring this up.

    Yes, I understand the concept and attraction of globalization, but are simply not ready for it yet. And by "we", I mean "humans". And we may not be for decades or generations. The Left has been pushing too hard on this -- which is what ideologies always do -- and it's just not yet time.

    We'll see. I've been wrong so many times about Trump at this point, I'll just watch and hope for the best. His most hopeful characteristic for me (and this is from someone who voted against him) is that he appears to be largely non-ideological, and that could be significant.

    Bernie did well, the Dems need to reject American freedoms and values and openly embrace Socialism and Communism

    Mac1958, what you say is absolutely correct... The DNC has to reorganize in the next 2 years if The Trump Administration has any success at all... Remember what happened to the House of Representatives in 2010... I think they called it a Tea Party... pbocare was rammed down the voters throat and then arrogance took up residence the Speaker of the House and Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid...

    It will take some strong Democratic leadership if the Trump Admin. has any success at all...
