At one point at least, the majority of republicans felt like they represented them the best.
Not really. They were both pretty unpopular candidates and were both being called RINOs before Trump was in the picture.

Getting the nomination involves many factors, "majority of [party] felt like they represented them the best" is pretty low on the list.

General Discussion / Re: Marc Lore leaving Walmart
« on: Today at 11:49:30 AM »
Marc Lore founder of jet.com will be leaving Walmart in September.
Here’s hoping he goes on to start a real Amazon competitor....
I think he did a pretty good job turning walmart.com around.
I'm not saying it's perfect, but it's light years ahead of where it was when he got there.

Over the past year I've found their shipping to be generally faster than Amazon, (especially now that Prime shipping just  means free shipping, no longer next/two day.)

Even with selection, where Amazon always had a huge advantage, in recent months I'm seeing that gap narrowing. (especially since the started 3rd party fulfillment)

What's the difference if you earn 1 point per flight and require 50 for a free flight, or if you earn 500 per flight and require 2500 for a redemption.
I can think of a few differences.
45 differences in fact ;)

How many DDFers can you spot?
I think I may have spotted one in the first 5 seconds ;)

what is the legitimate explanation for Rudy Guliani's call for 'Trial By Combat'? I just listened to the speech...
You're probably the only one here who listened

Trump never said Joe Biden will be the next president, you are simply fabricating that. He many times said Biden won't take office. He made an ambiguous statement saying there will be a 'new administration'. AFAIK every president in history attended his successors inauguration. Just today Trump released a video informing his supporters of future rallies, which the FBI is saying are going to be armed and dangerous. I don't know if his oath absolutely requires him to do it or not, but if he would say unequivically that there is no chance, nothing to rally for, and people can voice their opinion when it safer after Jan 20, it would make an absolutely huge difference.
Good point. They should impeach him a 3rd time. That'll surely help lower the temperature.

In fact it'll finally convince his supporters that he hasn't actually been the victim of a four-year attempt to overturn the 2020 election and remove him from office rather he really is an imminent threat and must be removed from office immediately.

Oh come on. Conceding an election and saying Biden will take office on Jan 20 isn't 'rolling over and dying'. Plenty of democrats have done the same.

And I know you're trying not to notice, but he did serious damage to the Republican Party. Like at their donors and infighting.
Oh, I forgot that US politics first started when Trump lost the election. Never mind then.

The tweet I posted points out how Trump calling in a statement for all Americans to help ease tension and calm tempers is beyond ridiculous when he is the one who can do more than anybody else to calm them.
If only he would just roll over and die like all the Republicans before him things would get back to normal already...

Gee, I wonder how we got here...

A move every single professional, including the Israeli defense establishment acknowledges only caused the Iranians to increase their rate of nuclear development, and are closer now than ever before. Obama's deal wasn't perfect, but you can't co-opt Iran, the most you can do is give them enough incentive to slow down. In the meantime Iran aggression in the Mideast has skyrocketed, and as we speak they are holding a S Korean ship hostage.
A baby move which was very possibly illegal, accomplished absolutely nothing positive, and was destined from the beginning to flop when the next admin was obviously rejoin
You mean he conned you into buying his rhetoric?
Most Republicans lowers taxes. Under Trump tax went up for most NY residents.
Again, something he conned you into thinking by adding 30 miles of new wall
Like what?
Like what?
There's a lot of policy we disagree on what's good and bad, that's ok.

But we can argue about it all tomorrow, now I'm too tired :)

This forum is full of people who think Trump is a saint. When have you pointed out that "Trump is not perfection personified and he does have his fair share of problems"?
1. I don't know what I'm doing here now, but I've mostly avoided the Trump/politics threads. when I said that I was referring to IRL discussions.

2. I believe he is correct.
I'm not sure which DDF you frequent, but the one I see share primarily these sentiments;

Sure. I appreciate the Conservative judge appointments, Israeli peace deals, the pardons to a few community members, and like the recognition of Israeli territorial claims. What else do you respect him for?
1. I'm pretty sure I never used the word respect.

2. Maybe I'm misremembering, but I think you argued against a lot of those things at the time

3. Other things I liked off the top of my head: Ditching the Iran deal, ditching the Paris Accords, overall his "America First" outlook, tax cuts,  at least trying to secure the borders, deregulation, support for military and law enforcement (yes I'm judging based on his actions, not allegations of things he said)

In fact I think it's impressive that he got anything done, considering I believe he faced level of hostility, opposition and resistance not seen by any President since at least the early days of the Republic. (Except perhaps arguably Abraham Lincoln.)

I would say my biggest complaint with his governing is that he spends like a Democrat :P

I understand very clearly why that would be possible, I just think it isn't the case.
oh well, in that case things are totally different  ::)

To be clear, there definitely are TDSers on both ends of the spectrum, the difference is that when I'm I'm with these people I'll argue that  no, Trump is not perfection personified and he does have his fair share of problems. Have you ever once argued one thing in favor Trump (or ever even been able to view anything he's done in a positive light?)

But I'm the biased one here...

Being human and thus shaped by your surroundings, which, like mine and this forum are probably mostly hard core Trumpsters
I've posted this sentiment before, I thought on DDF but I can't find it, I definitely posted it on whatsapp (most likely at least once responding to you )

One thing you TDSers just don't understand, is that it's possible for people to dislike DJT as person and dislike his rhetoric, yet at the same time overall approve of how he's actually governed, and believe that he's been treated unfairly by the media and Democrats (but I repeat myself) and most of the accusations against him are bull

Are you admiting that you were wrong when you said that Congress can remove any president they don't like?
Yes.
So with that settled, should we resume this argument?
I'm not educated on topic. It is very wrong but the damage done is much greater when one side of the debate is attempting in the literal sense to stay in office illegally. 
Maybe now educate us on the damages done by spending four years trying to undo the 2016 election and remove Trump...
Nothing illegitimate about impeachment, it is just as constitutional as elections.
Nothing illegal about objecting to the electors, it is just as constitutional as elections.
So in your opinion, every 4 years Congress can decide which electors they like, which they don't, and appoint the President accordingly?
So in your opinion, whenever they want, Congress can decide which presidents they like, which they don't, and remove the President accordingly?

Or maybe
But regardless, all this is completely irrelevant to my OP:
Maybe now educate us on the damages done by spending four years trying to undo the 2016 election and remove Trump...

I think my bias is actually far lower than your bias
LOL
What exactly do you think my bias is?

So when you can't prove your point
Lol.

Last I checked the constitution said a president can be removed for "Treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors."

You can argue what constitutes "high crimes and misdemeanors," but the idea that "100%" "Congress can decide which presidents they like, which they don't, and remove the President accordingly" is ridiculous.  (and the 2/3 is a safeguard against exactly this.)


you resort to attacking my competency.
Are you denying that? Do you really think you're capable of looking at anything DJT related with any semblance of objectivity?
