The LuLac Edition #3029, September 19th, 2015


Although it really pains me to say this, in many ways we are an ignorant country. As a matter of fact we are an extremely stupid country of oafs that believe just because they say it lid enough, they are right.
If Donald Trump needs to broaden his base and reach voters that will take him seriously, he needs to not pander to the baser instincts of this nation. The day after the debate, Trump took questions at a Town Hall Meeting in New Hampshire which is worse than taking them in Iowa. An idiot, (he was one of ours, an “Amurikan” idiot went on a rant about the President being a Muslim, whether he was born in this country and when will this country start wiping out terrorist training camps.
Here is the video of this encounter:

For a guy who took off on a Hispanic reporter who wasn’t waiting his turn, Trump shrunk like a violet when this “Amurikan” did his thing. Trump needed to state it this way:
“The President says he’s not a Muslim, I take him at his word. As far as being born in the United States, we’ve had that debate. Less than a year on his term, who cares? But what matters is how I can fix the damage he’s done, whether you think he’s a Muslim, Christian or Martian, that’s what we need to talk about today”.
But instead Trump gave legitimacy to this fool. I’m sorry “Amurikan” fool. Trump needs to go outside the base in order to win the nomination and participate in a General Election. Here’s how John McCain handled a similar situation.

Bottom line here is this, Trump has proven himself adept at skirting issues of sexism, and prejudice that would have doomed any other candidate. But reasonable voters who like a part of his agenda, will not support him if he is associated with the fringe element of this country.
The scary part though is that 54% of Republicans think Mr. Obama is a Muslim. Even though there has been no proof they think that. Trump may win their hearts and minds but there are Christians, Jews, Catholics , Agnostics, Atheists and other denominations that may nod noncommittally. But in the end those people will enter the voting booth and vote for anyone but a Republican.

For the first time in twenty years, I have PASSION to vote again. I ran for State Representative in 2006, but I have more passion to vote in 2016 than when I ran myself against Phyllis Mundy. I believe DONALD TRUMP is the best thing that has happened to America since Barry Goldwater in 1964. Only this time, he's going to win. We need a big mouth to get tings done. Oh Yeah, just like mine ! JOHN C. CORDORA

Trump is doing good in the polls because he is not the typical politician. Whether that will convert to votes is completely unknown.
Trump's answer to this was spot on.
McCain's high road was the road to defeat.
Politics is verbal and PR bloodsport, and those willing to play it that way will win.
McCain wasn't.
Elections, on either side, aren't won by intellect, reasoning, and rational thought --- they are won by rhetoric that plays to emotion and fear and yes even veiled hatred. It is sad, but it is the truth.

Trump deflected a stupid question WITHOUT belittling the person and yet still treated him with respect.
Guess I've had it with elitist attitudes looking down their nose at us.

Obama can fend for himself the man had a point.

How can you expect the STUPID to repudiate the STUPID. Mr. Cordora's comment just proves the point!

Unnecessarily harsh. Must be nice up on Mount Petard. Bet you support IQ based voting standards.
