Yup, there you go again. Avoid all the valid points and come up with a childish reply.

As someone once put it ..."Arguing with you is like playing chess with a pidgeon. It'll just knock over all the pieces, shit on the board, and strut about like it's won anyway."

Listen to you Cwericb - blah, blah, blah.

I told you what I thought of the Trump/McCain fiasco. End of story.

Tell me how much you love Bill Maher and what he said about the death of David Koch?

I guess you must approve!

I find it appalling - but even more so given the lack of outrage from your lefty heroes and fake news organizations.

Maher is a doofus...and not that funny either!  He probably hung around Trump in the old days as much as anyone, and probably Epstein too!

Yeah, he deserves scorn for saying such things.  But remember when Dunning said that RBG would be dead in six months?  Or Trump's feud with a dying McCain?  A comedian saying something is bad, but when Senators/Congressmen/President say it...maybe your outcry should be just as scornful and maybe stop supporting them.  Cheers!

Talk about childish - keep sticking up for the indefensible instead of condemning it - makes you look like a total fool.

Why are you guys even arguing with cubs in good faith?  The Right hasn't been civil since most of us have been alive.  What they are doing to McCain is no different than what they did to Kerry.  This is intentional.  In fact, the author of the book that attempted to "Swiftboat" Kerry on his war record during the Presidential election was Jerome Corsi.  Jerome Corsi is actually a witness to the Roger Stone indictment for acting as a cutout for Wikileaks (an organization proven to be a front for Russian Intelligence) in the hacked/stolen Hilary/Podesta emails.   The Right has always lied, stolen, cheated and attacked individuals in bad faith to advance their cause.   McCain was indeed a war hero.  John Kerry was indeed a war hero.

This is a person defending Trump whose presidential campaign: (a) asked for the help of a enemy state (fact established by Mueller), (b) received help from an enemy state (fact established by Mueller) (c) purposefully disseminated stolen information to have the largest effect on his opponent, the former Secretary of State (fact established by Mueller), (d) has since lied about Russia's involvement in the federal crime (fact established by US intelligence agencies and the FBI), and (e) blocked efforts to protect the US from this happening again (fact established by McConnell). 

You guys think he is going to come onto the internet and make good faith arguments?  Wouldn't waste my time if I were you.  In any thread.  Ever.

You got a good point Parsad - but it's a world of alternatives, which the Dems are blowing big time.

Trump is far from perfect - but look at the looney alternatives: Socialism and the party leaders running to the left as fast as they can.

If they wanted to remake the Democratic Party - these guys are so radical it's scary. I think they're in big trouble unless they reverse direction.

Like I said: Green New Deal anyone?   I think not, I'll stick with Make America Great - so far, so good.

Boy, oh boy, JSA - I think it's gonna be a bad day for you when the Michael Horowitz report comes out. We can revisit in the next month or two, as
you'll likely be in for an unpleasant surprise - when you see the Mueller report demolished.

Yeah, you're right there.  Other than Buttigieg, I really don't like any Democratic candidates, and the Dem's aren't going to vote for him.  I would be inclined to vote for Trump if that's the case as well. 

Nobody rational really wants to be a politician..there are very few out there who can actually be good at it without compromising themselves.  It's why Trump will probably beat out Biden or Bernie.  Trump has no problem compromising himself, his family, his friends, his team or every American out there.  He's truly the luckiest snake-oil salesman alive in World history! 

Cheers!

JSArbitrage you are absolutely right.

I forgot about the character assassination job done on Kerry - another war hero that Trump hates.

I wonder why Trump goes so far out of his way to attack his own country’s war heroes - Oh wait, in what branch of the service did “The Commander in Chief” serve?    

Cubs said: “Trump is far from perfect - but look at the looney alternatives...”

Well at least he used the words “Trump” and “looney” in the same sentence. Maybe there is hopes for him yet.

Holy shit Parsad - now you are really making me nervous!   You feeling ok??!!

But along that line.... I'd be terrified for Trump if Michael Bloomberg or some "rational" really ran!

Damn! - Is this what "meeting of the minds" feels like on CoBF???

I gotta quit while I'm ahead!

The problem is Bloomberg, Schultz, etc would run as independent and it would just split the vote...so they may get close, but they definitely would not win.  If they ran as a Democratic or Republican candidate, then they could get the Republicans to turn against Trump or get a lot of the rational right-wing vote to vote Democrat.  But not as an independent.

The right-wing is correct that the fringe on the Democrat side is too powerful to even allow a centrist Democrat to be selected as their nominee.  Instead they would rather vote for the crazies and extremists to get revenge.  But this is only in exchange for what everyone saw happen during Dubya's administration, which lead to more extreme politics during Obama's administration and then finally nothing short of a right-wing satire coming to life in Trump's administration. 

Cheers!
