Bill Weld to Primary Trump

Unread postby Cid_Yama » Sat 16 Feb 2019, 19:53:44

Bill Weld has announced his run for President as a Republican. That should make Carinke happy.

And a lot of Moderate and former Republicans. Trump may not be the Republican nominee in 2020.

He is an open borders, gun banning idiot. I'm sure he can get his 1% of Republican support. Another northeastern liberal. LOL

Cid will be voting for Kamala Harris just like he voted for Hillary in 2016.

What a lazy mind. just accuse anyone you don't agree with, with being a Clinton supporter, even though you have been corrected by others on here repeatedly.

There was no way I was going to support that crap.

I am a Progressive. Think Jimmy Stewart in It's a Wonderful Life, and Mr. Smith goes to Washington and Gary Cooper in Meet John Doe and Mr. Deeds Goes to Town. Real Republican. Who we were before. All by Frank Capra, lifelong Republican. Those movies show what a real Republican is, before the Corporate Fascists stole the party. Seek your roots, find out what a real Republican is.

Banana Republicans like Cog deserve nothing but loathing.


CID thanks for your response. I followed you right up to H W Bush, then I discovered the Libertarian Party and voted for them up until the 2016 election. In 2016 the Libertarian party put up a Republican to run for President. After studying all Presidential candidates for 2016, I decided none were qualified, so I did not vote for President.


Same here. Clinton is a corporatist, there is no way in Hell I would vote for her. And Trump is a Hitler wannabe, but his 5th grade vocabulary and profound ignorance of nearly everything, ensured total incompetence in the office. But he has really, really tried to pull off the fascist dictator thing. All he ended up doing was put himself inextricably under Putin's thumb.

The only reason Trump might make it to 2020, is because the Democrats want HIM to be the Republican candidate. I expect both parties to be fighting against him being deposed before then.

Not that they won't be poking him with sticks until then. :lol:

If you are going to vote for a democratic socialist you might as well vote for whoever the Democrat party produces. Weld has zero chance to beat Trump and all real Republicans know that.

Blah, blah, blah. I think you are actually scared of a challenge from the middle. I guess you ought to be since the Banana Republicans only have a core 28% of full supporters, among all voters across the spectrum, which can easily be overwhelmed by the shear numbers of moderate and former Republicans who have been waiting for this opportunity. And even Libertarians and moderate Democrats might go with Weld.

I think people are really tired of your crap, and the pendulum now swings the other way.
Once regular Republicans in Congress realize being primaried from the right is no longer a threat, Trump will lose the support of most of them. And your 28% will go back in the closet where you belong. Reviled by most and powerless.

The American people have now woke up and smelled the burnt coffee of the far right and the Trumpists, and they aren't having any. Especially now that most of them ended up owing the IRS instead of getting a refund as a result of your tax cuts for the corporations and the wealthy. Thank you for that. Like shooting yourself in the foot.

So go back and crawl under your rock.

VT, Trump is 72, and Weld is in better shape.

LOL There will be two choices in 2020. Trump and whatever flavor of socialist survive the Democrat nomination process. Maybe Bill Weld can find a tank to ride around in. That worked so well last time a northeastern liberal tried it.

If you are going to vote for an open borders gun banning commie might as well vote for the real thing. Warren, Booker, and Harris all fit that bill quite nicely.

Among Republicans Trump has 89% approval rating according to Gallup and a 44% support among all voters. Not bad since he hardly gets any positive press from the MSM.

Weld would be 74 by the time he took office and 82 at the end of a second term. We do not need any senior moments in the oval office. We need to look for younger people still in their prime to tackle this very stressful job.
If you watched Reagan in his second term after he was shot you could see the decline and I think his staff were pretty much running the show.

Democrats are always trying to foist off Republicans onto us that they think we should vote for. In the end the Democrats won't vote for them but want us Republicans stuck with them. No thanks. Our horse, for ill or good is Donald J. Trump.

You've had your head up that horse's ass right from the start. :P

VT, you currently have senior moments in the WH.

"We're thinking about doing, on the 4th of July or thereabouts, a parade, a 'Salute to America' parade. Perhaps at the Lincoln Memorial. We're looking at sites. But we're thinking about doing something that would, perhaps, become a tradition," Trump said.


The first 4th of July Parade in Washington D.C. was in 1824. The first fireworks in 1828.

Come now Cid, six more years will pass before you know it. You will forget a time when Trump wasn't your president. Get your MAGA hat now. They are flying off the shelves.

Right... He'll be lucky if he isn't impeached and in jail before THIS terms over. There is currently an indictment waiting for him in the southern district of New York. No pardon will get him out of that.

They have a cell waiting for him right next to Michael Cohen.

You can not indict a president due to long-standing DOJ policy and you don't have 67 Senators to vote to remove him.

Turns out the Muh Russian collusion was nothing nothing more than a cover for a McCabe and Rosenstein coup attempt using the 25th Amendment. There is your indictment.

In your dreams. SDNY has evidence to convict on fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud, money-laundering, Illegal use of a charity for criminal purposes, etc.

I'm sure by the time this is over, the District of Columbia, and the state of Virginia will also want to get their hands on him. And then there is Mueller. Trump will be spending the rest of his life in court and in jail.

Also, unwritten DOJ policy is not law. Most constitutional scholars say you CAN indict a President while he is in office. But due to all the state charges waiting on him, there may be no reason to.

They State of New York said they saw no reason NOT to Indict him while in office. He is just another criminal.

Soon the Trump supporters in Congress will realize that Trump is a big concrete block chained to their legs, and they are on a boat headed for the middle of the lake.

The Democrat leadership will have to choose between prosecuting now or waiting for the election. If they drive him out of office now Pence takes over and the Republican primaries will heat up possibly producing a viable candidate that would beat the hard left socialist candidates they now have in the lead. They could win the battle and lose the war. Or they can hold their fire until the days before the election in 2020 and let their evidence put the Dem candidate in office.
I think option two is the wiser choice but I don't see much wisdom in the Democrat leadership. 8)

Could someone remind what we are prosecuting Trump for again. I must have missed some key evidence that he is guilty of something.

Why defeating Hillary obviously.
What actual charges they file are unimportant and perhaps the evidence to support them is still being fabricated.
Of course anybody that has dealt in NY city real estate and construction for any length of time has a parking ticket or bribe or two in the closet so whatever they can dig up in Trumps past will do nicely.

That's not parking tickets, and it definitely is not fabrication.

You guys need to try to jump start your brains.

I suspect that the President is salivating about a liberal primary challenger, fresh meat to warm up on before the real campaign.
