Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – gruesome grab bag edition

OK folks, you know the drill – one new thread, and a crapload (literally) of older ones.

New thread has been assigned the First Draft designation:


We had the chance, and we blew it.

It’s appearing obvious that Trump will win South Carolina, and logic would tend to indicate that that makes him the odds-on favorite to win the Republican nomination (baring any GOPe dirty tricks at the convention).

While I will gladly vote for Trump over Clinton or Sanders, I’m still disheartened.

Ever since the last day of Reagan’s administration, America has been in need of conservative leadership.

GHW Bush’s squishiness gave us Clinton.

GW Bush barely won election. I’m glad he was in office after 9/11 instead of Gore, but he loaded us up with tons of debt and a lot of government growth.

Cognitive dissonance alert!!

He also gave us Obama.

McCain was a squish and got his ass handed to him in Obama’s first term.

Romney was a squish and got his ass handed to him in Obama’s second term. Even Obama was surprised he won that one after the destruction he wrought in his first term.

Now, our chance has come.

On the democrat side, we have a nasty, entitled, corrupt, untrustworthy, unlikable, old hag and a grungy, mooching, old, socialist running for office.

On the republican side, we have a solidly conservative, well spoken, highly informed candidate that isn’t afraid to stand up to the GOPe and fight for conservative causes. It’s what we ALL have been waiting for.

We’ve ALL thought that we could win the presidency and right the wrongs of the past few decades of creeping socialism if we would just put a true conservative up as our nominee in the general.

Well, this is our chance. But, we’re about to piss it away.

I think I understand the appeal of Trump. People are pissed and Trump has tapped into that. But this is a time for thinking, not feeling. Trump is a demagogue. People want to be on “Team Trump” because he’s loud, proud, and unapologetic. But, Trump is also practicing a scorched Earth campaign of character assassination against Cruz in order to win the nomination for himself, and his whipped up supporters are dog-piling on anyone who dares to point out the emperor’s lack of clothes.

Two years from now, when we discover that all of the red flags and warnings being blared by Trump’s past positions and statements really are an accurate representation of Trump, and we find that “campaign” Trump was just that, we will kick ourselves when we realize that we had our chance, perhaps our last, to nominate the true conservative we had all been waiting for, and we screwed it up.

Turning a blind eye to Trump’s liberal leanings just because he says the things we want to hear, and helps us express our dissatisfaction with the status-quo, doesn’t make his leanings any less liberal.

We’ve said that electing a conservative could set us back on the right track.

We have, right now, a chance that we won’t have again for a very, very long time. A chance to prove we were right.

But we’re about to blow it.

Well, that was depressing (if you’re a Republican).

Trump-humpers – attack!!

To: Washi

The problems with America cannot be solved by nuance and finesse. Things have been neglected for so long we need a hammer.

Hulk smash.

You know – sometimes I’m tempted to terminate a thread after the first selected reply.

This is one of those times.  Hulk smash, indeed.

Mommy has been in charge for so long we all can’t wait for daddy to get home. Asses will sting.

When one plays the Jesus sent me card, then it was absolutely immoral. Some of US will not fall for deception… Bearing false witness is still one of the 10 Commandments…. Christ said you break one you break them all..

What would Jesus say about a man who publishes books with passages where he gloats about engaging in sex with married women while he is also married?

Is your moral outrage selective based upon the target of your outrage?

Bingo! He may be a bastard, but he’s out bastard. And if Trump doesn’t deliver, then he’s out too! It’s time for the voters to take charge rather than the uniparty.

Well said. I cannot believe how many people have decided that Trump’s words don’t matter, his character doesn’t matter, his contradictions don’t matter, his previous positions don’t matter, his history of donations doesn’t matter, his betrayal of spouses and business partners doesn’t’ matter, his hubris doesn’t matter, his ignorance of government and foreign policy doesn’t matter, his mean-spirited approach to non believers in him doesn’t matter, his megalomania doesn’t matter, his liberalism doesn’t matter (youthful indiscretion, after all, he was only 65 then), and his disdain for his own putative party doesn’t matter.

Trump Is the Democrats’ Dream Nominee
Wall Street Journal ^ | 12/9/15 | Karl Rove

Posted on ‎12‎/‎10‎/‎2015‎ ‎10‎:‎19‎:‎33‎ ‎AM by jimbo123

Donald Trump’s call on Monday for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States” is unlikely to blow up his campaign. No matter how outrageous his statement seems to most Americans, his supporters apparently eat up stuff like that.

Forty-six percent of Mr. Trump’s backers say that their minds are made up and won’t change before the primaries, according to a Dec. 2 Quinnipiac poll. Only 33% of Ted Cruz’s supporters, and 23% of Marco Rubio’s, say that they are sure of their choice.

Apparently no matter what Mr. Trump does, he continues to poll generally in the mid- to high-20s, with an occasional survey putting him in the 30s. In mid-August he dipped to 22% in the Real Clear Politics average, but he hasn’t fallen below that mark since. This high floor, however, is matched by a low ceiling.

His antics-calling his GOP competitors “losers” and “clowns,” insulting Sen. John McCain for having been captured in Vietnam, mocking a reporter with a disability, crudely attacking Fox News’s Megyn Kelly-have made it difficult for him to grow his base.

Will this be the kiss of death for Donald Trump? Vladimir Putin praisesDaily Mail UK ^ | December 17, 2015 | By Corey Charlton Posted on ‎12‎/‎17‎/‎2015‎ ‎8‎:‎36‎:‎40‎ ‎AM by COUNTrecount

Will this be the kiss of death for Donald Trump? Vladimir Putin praises the White House candidate as an ‘outstanding man’

Russian president Vladimir Putin has endorsed the controversial candidate He described Donald Trump as ‘outstanding’ and ‘unquestionably talented’ Putin was holding an annual press conference from the Kremlin in Moscow The Russian strongman also accused Turkey of currying U.S. favour After staring down months of opposition and criticism, U.S. Presidential hopeful Donald Trump has finally received a rare piece of ringing, unequivocal support.

Unfortunately, it comes from the provocative and confrontational Russian president Vladimir Putin.

Today Putin offered his thoughts on the Republican party nomination for the White House, and offered nothing but praise for the billionaire businessman. He said: ‘He is a very outstanding man, unquestionably talented. He is the absolute leader of the presidential race.’

Putin went on to describe him as ‘flamboyant’, and claiming Trump wants to move to a ‘deeper level’ of relations with Russia, added: ‘How can we not welcome it? Of course we welcome it.’

So – Freepers – Putin wants The Darnold in the driver’s seat.

Putin finds talking with traitors and girly men to be distasteful.He’s looking forward to negotiating with a real man.

Well… I think Putin got kind of tired of toying around with the stuffed mouse that is our dear Barack Obama. Victories over paper tigers are scarcely satisfying.

I think he actually wants someone respectable at the helm in the USA. This is a smaller world than we think, and the USA matters to Russia.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see him say something nice about Cruz, too.

Wanting a Putin here is scary and stupid. Conservatives rooting for a far more dominant government than we already have is utterly bizarre.

Trump is not Putin, for better and worse.

  1. We’re rapidly approaching the point where, if the GOPe wants to stop The Donald, it will require stinger missiles to be used on Trump Force One.

    I’m sure that the Koch Bros can get a really good deal on Ebay, you betcha.

  2. In a couple months, when Trump is their nominee (shudder..), all these commenters will change their tune and say how wonderful he is.
