Trump doesn't need ideas. He makes deals. Watching this mess unfold, one wishes it was a filmed/video comedy. Watch as the newly elected/coronated POTUS; THE Donald just walks away from any and all US debts. Yes folks, just as he has done numerous times when previous business ventures went belly up. Just walk away from the debts he ran up and go off to start over someplace else, with a new product. Oh sure that will work just great. Why, it is so easy, how come previous POTUS haven't done so? Oh, now I suppose you'll bring up stuff like honor, fair play, paying off your debts. Well, that just proves what a miserable anti-'Merikkkan you are. That was supposed to be sarcastic. I have never walked away from any debt I got myself into, paid off all of them, so far. Just was trying to be mildly comical or something.Hope your week is a good one.
Krugman and others note that...well, what DOES make Trump that different, at least in his rhetoric, from Junior Bush and all the other wingnut clowns? Oh, maybe that he at least publicly won't commit to destroying Social Security, but everything else...right out of the standard winger playbook since the sainted Reagan himself. Reap what you sow, bastards. But still, some 40 percent of the country will vote for him automatically. Unbelievable. Saw on another blog a hate note to Paul Ryan, accusing him of being a RINO squish...well, if you want to look for yourselfhttp://digbysblog.blogspot.com/2016/05/they-really-hate-paul-ryan.htmlNo tears, by the way, for Ryan. Couldn't happen to a more deserving panderer. But damn...there are some genuinely delusional people out there. And enough live in this state that Trump carries it in a walk. Take it easy.
