Are Republicans and the Trump Administration Taking on Water?...



By a 20-point margin, more Americans blame President Trump and Republicans rather than Democrats for a potential government shutdown, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

2018 mid terms could prove to be VERY Exciting. As in a sea wave displacing insanity with some common sense. Please keep on being a jacka*s president Trump.

  1. Democrats make a mistake if they blame everything on the crooked, mentally deranged Trump. Americans need to vote the Republican party out of majority, not just get rid of one of their nut jobs.

  2. Democrats, finally grow a set. As tRump, the self proclaimed "Deal Maker, fails to make a deal.

    With all branches of the government in iron control of the Republicants, tRump and the Republicants couldn't, wouldn't, get it done. Choosing instead to shut the government down.

    In 2013 Republicants shutdown the government and at that time citizen tRump shot off his mouth that a shutdown feel on President Obama. Well "Mr. Art of the Deal president, eat your words, this one falls squarely on your shoulders. But, true to your self absorbed hypocritical way, even with Congress firmly in YOUR parties hands you no blame the Democrats.

    Bring on 2018 midterms!

  3. Republicans shut down the government in 2013 and are now criticizing Democrats for doing the same thing THEY did. Except the Democrats decision this year is based in sound principles, the Republican shutdown was a cynical ploy, an attempt to damage President Obama, a man they hated.

    Republicans are cynical hypocrites and liars, just like their party "leader".

    Bring on 2018 mid terms!

  4. It's the first time the government has been shut down with the same party in control of the House, Senate, and the White House.

    1. Yes, thanks for reinforcing my comment above Anonymous. Trump may have a strong ego, but, he is a weak leader. As well as a less than impressive businessman, with what, 4 bankruptcies to his list of well publicized failures.

    2. "As well as a less than impressive businessman, with what, 4 bankruptcies to his list of well publicized failures."

      IF Trump were a jockey, he would have ridden 4 horses to death, and wonder why an owner would be reluctant to let him ride a 5th.

    3. That's funny, dmarks. Did you come up with that bit?

  5. Republicans passed their oligarchic tax cut bill with zero votes from Democrats, so HOW is this shutdown the Democrat's fault? And Trump blew up the deal that was on the table with his racist "shithole" comment. BTW, 5 Democrats voted for the bill that would have kept the government funded, whereas zero Democrats voted for the oligarchic tax cut bill.

    1. Indeed, the 2018 government shutdown is most definitely a #TrumpShutDown.

    2. If Americans are paying attention, and, using their good old fashioned American common sense,they will sink the GOP majority in 2018 and Dump Trump in 2020.

      The current GOP has outlived any legitimacy it once had. It has morphed into an evil pox on American government and society.

    3. Don't get your hopes up. The American voter did not show their common sense when they elected Trump.

    One reason to #ShutDownTrump

  7. The American voter did not show their common sense when they elected Trump.

    The American voter did not elect Trump. Russian meddling, vote-suppression laws, and the Electoral College did that.

    That being said, a new poll out today shows the margin by which the public blames the Republicans to be considerably smaller. A majority of Americans want to protect DREAMers, but attach a higher priority to keeping the government open.

    If this shutdown isn't ended quickly -- hopefully by a clean CR without all these other issues attached to it, which make an agreement among all the necessary groups almost impossible -- the public is likely to revert to plague-on-both-your-houses mode. That's especially likely if everyone is seen as talking about who's to blame instead of focusing on ending the shutdown.

    This episode will probably be forgotten by November, but Democrats shouldn't count on whatever impact it does have being beneficial.

    1. The Electoral College is the Constitutional way to legally elect a president. I haven't read of Russians committing, or being arrested for voting, or ballot box violations. If Americans are dumb enough to believe Russian propaganda, or any other lies and propaganda that's their idiocy. It's not illegal to use free speech to sway a voters thinking. The courts ARE taking care of the biased gerrymandering of voting districts.

    2. Ummm. Anonymous, inform yourself:

      "2017 Lie of the Year: Russian election interference is a 'made-up story'"

      "....Once you say, we don’t mind foreign governments interfering with your elections, then you’re on your way to yielding up significant aspects of sovereignty," he added. "It’s an important line to defend."

      Anon, you might be willing, for one, to welcome you new Russian overlords... you and Willis Hart, actually. But I'm not!

    3. Also, I know there is a difference of opinion here, but just because the Electoral College is Constitutional, that doesn't mean that Infidel can't criticize it.

      I for one know it is Constitutional, but I would like to see it abolished. I don't think the Founding Fathers intended the electoral college to mean that the candidates totally ignore California, Alabama, and Massachusetts, and spend most of their time in Ohio time after time....

  8. I don’t understand why the democrats didn’t let the stop gap bill go to a vote. They became part of the problem when they required 60 votes to move forward.

    1. Political Junky does not like your anti-Trump comments, dmarks. If you're against Trump you must be a Marxist. Further "proof" being that "dmarks" is very close to "marxist".

    2. And Dervish Sanders, I'd rather be a Marxist than be a trumpfoon. Heck, I'd rather vote for Bernie Sanders, too.

    1. Why thank you for your insightful comment The Real Deal. Exposing your lack of knowledge as well as supporting evidence, other than your opinion which is not evidence at all, you have made your point quite well.

      Feel free go return when you have a thought relevant to the post topic, and, something value to say.

  14. As the left continues to bash Trump Starbucks,Apple,Comcast,Chrysler and Boeing give their employees raises and bonuses because of Trumps business tax cuts, Nice to have a businessman in the oval office who understands how America's economic engine actually works

    1. Understand this, the bonuses are a one time "corporate gift". and the raises, no guarantee there will be another next year. But, the Trump GOP corporate tax breaks, they're PERMANENT, they are the gift to the plutocracy that keep on giving, and giving, and giving.

    1. Bitter? Not at all! I'm retired, well okay, semi retired. I could NOT be happier.

      I put my time in with my nose to the ole grindstone and was rewarded adequately for my efforts.

      So, your point is again?

      On second thought, nevermind.

    2. The funny thing is, chances are the "anonymous" troll didn't get a bonus or raise either.

  16. As a working man you should understand my point. A raise is forever an unexpected bonus is a new washing machine,tires for the car or braces for the ten year old. All thanks to DJT

    3. Changed my mind Rusty, can't let irritation with you get in the way of truth.

      Yes, the companies and corporations giving bonuses are to be commended for that. As you say any bonus in unplanned for money in someone's pocket or bank account. When it's gone its gone but appreciated when received.

      Raises have the same effect, althogh, at least theoretically, they last forever, albeit diminished each year by inflation. Still a help.

      Of course the big winners are, as I said corporations as the reduction in corporate tax rates was made permanent. The individual tax rates expire, they will no doubt be increaesed. With that said, it is clear the cuts will increase the federal debt substantially.

      But hey, it's only debt, and, republicans are among the biggest Keynesians now.

    just make sure that you give back your tax breaks to the government, because if you spend any of it, you will help President Trumps economy ROAR along like a Ferrari. And like good commies that you are, you sure as hell don't want President Trump to look that good, right?

  18. Tonight is DJT's really big night. His maiden SOTU address is tonight. Being billed as a speech emphasizing unity and bipartisanship following a year of engineered divisiveness and extreme partisanship from the "president" it should be a hoot.

    Be sure to tune into his Twitter feed in the days following his scripted teleprompter address to get back in touch with the REAL Donald J. Trump.

      We would be most gratified if Trump were to simply and sincerely display the qualities becoming of the leader of this nation and the free world.

      You see character matters. So far Trump has shown none. But hey, he bagged Stormy Daniels. Something many of the God fearing Evangelicals are apparently down with.
