NH Union Leader Doesn't Endorse GOP Nominee For First Time In A Century

Original post made by Erik, Woodside: other, on Sep 16, 2016

Ultra conservative paper: Trump is not “qualified to competently lead this nation"

“The man is a liar, a bully, a buffoon,” McQuaid wrote. “He denigrates any individual or group that displeases him. He has dishonored military veterans and their families, made fun of the physically frail, and changed political views almost as often as he has changed wives.”

We'll, there's that.

100 years of endorsing the Conservative.

I completely agree with all the foreign policy professionals and the editorial boards that decline to endorse Trump. One only needs to listen to Trump to make that easy decision:

This is the response of a fool severely out of touch, and in over his head:

Doocy: Change the playbook. OK, change the playbook how?

Trump: Well we’re going to have to do something extremely tough over there.

Doocy: Like what?

Trump: Over there. Like, knock the hell out of them. And we have to get everybody together and we have to lead for a change because we’re not knocking them, we’re hitting them every once in a while, we’re hitting them in certain places, we’re being very gentle about it, we’re going to have to be very tough.

Donald Trump’s director of African-American outreach has an ominous warning for all who dared to criticize the Republican presidential nominee:

"Soon, they will have to bow down to “the most powerful man in the universe.”" Omarosa Manigault told PBS in an upcoming “Frontline” special.

"Every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down to President Trump. It’s everyone who’s ever doubted Donald, who ever disagreed, who ever challenged him. It is the ultimate revenge to become the most powerful man in the universe."

Tell me, doesn't that doesn't sound exactly like the guy who tracks every person who has said he has small hands?

The Washington Post has published an article in today's newspaper about Allan Lichtman, an American University professor of history who has correctly predicted 8 consecutive presidential election winners going back to the Reagan era. He says Trump will win. This is mostly due to Flyover Country where common sense prevails. Of course Menlo Park liberals will go apoplectic. The rest of the country will breathe a huge sigh of relief that the great failed Socialist experiment is over. Of course Obama will have to get that pardon ready for Hillary because she will need it. Come November American will begin its journey back to greatness.

Read it. Good for Lichtman. When this is over, we won't have to hear about him ever again.

Trump is polling (aggregate) below 40% in these states:

Colorado (38 percent)
Michigan (37 percent)
New Hampshire (37 percent)
Pennsylvania (39.8 percent)
Virginia (38 percent)
Wisconsin (37 percent)

If he wins EVERY OTHER battleground state (ie.. FL and OH, etc..) he still has to win one of these. While polling under 40%.

Without a game changer that nets him every other battleground state and one of the above, he's toast. 270 is awfully tricky for the GOP these days, especially when you call for Stop and Frisk, refuse to appeal to Hispanics, etc..

Litchtman: "So very, very narrowly, the keys point to a Trump victory. But I would say, more to the point, they point to a generic Republican victory, because I believe that given the unprecedented nature of the Trump candidacy and Trump himself, he could defy all odds and lose even though the verdict of history is in his favor. So this would also suggest, you know, the possibility this election could go either way."

Way to firmly call this one solidly for the orange mop-top.

Sayonara, Prof Litchman. This election will be awesome in that afterwards there are so many we can summarily dismiss for what they've said and done in print and on tape.

And now we can include Cruz, who I thought was going to show real guts and stick to his guns. Could have come out s,elling like a rose, but now he caved.

Too bad. See ya!

By tonight, about 100 Republicans will have turned on Trump. How's Allan's prediction looking?

Trump admits molesting women so he slings mud. About right for a 2nd grader.

They're all doing the careful dance of disowning the crazy Trump without ticking off his crazy followers.

Well well, Walter W.

Where have you gone?

Hiding along with:

Hamp, MacArthur, Cubs! in the air!, R Vega, Seth Thomas, kkk, Baked Johnson!, Fountain of Youth, Clara, Miguel, Windy City Tres Cubs, Shaun, 2nd story, Fox News Rocks, terry terrace, Evil Exhaust, Polls showing landslide, its over, Erica, Joanne, Brooke, Bobbe Dylan, lancet grounding, Secretary of defense, no air to breathe, use your brain, pipelines r gud, farm life, petey, morgan, diddy, dirty driver, Liz Barr, worse than an intern Erik ......

Lotsa names, mostly trolls still hoping to get their last check from a Soros PAC. Or maybe migrated to Canada? or sticking around and starting to get the snowflakes to protest and to support attacks on people.... such hypocrites. To bad your candidate was not likeable, not believable enough for 6M democrats that voted in 2012 to bother to vote this time.

Yes. Too bad. All those papers that said Trump was dangerous must have been on the Soros payroll also. Along with all those Republicans that said Trump was a danger.

Let's see if Trump can keep private sector job growth going - currently at over 70 consecutive months. 14 million jobs created after the Bush recession.

I looked back for @in reality's posts. Couldn't find them. Who's the troll?

George - "in reality" posted on a Trump tax return thread.

Trump promised to show his returns. Now we'll never know if his policies are patriotic or if there is severe conflict of interest, like the million dollar investment in the company building DAPL.

Oh well. I'm sure he's honest. A straight shooter. Never lies.
