Mitt Romney awoke a sleeping giant

Now the question is whether we, the “sleeping giant,” have awakened and how we will respond. Will we twiddle our thumbs and mumble, “oh well,” or will we do something(s) useful?

    I think anyone who seriously supports Trump should take a closer look at what he says he wants to do, then compare his statements with the few details he’s provided about how he will accomplish his goals. Most of the details aren’t there, and the ones he has offered are mostly nonsense.

    Beyond that, he’s dragged the level of political discourse into the gutter, and there’s no reason to think he would be any different in office.

    Trump’s behavior and way of thinking and the kind of appeals he makes to mass audiences, compared with a few historical figures, makes the word “fascist” unavoidable.

    • OK, who will you support? Rubio? Cruz? Hillary? Sanders? Romney”? Other?

      I will gladly support Trump, and would vote for Cruz while holding my nose.

      Trump has built gorgeous, quality, top-notch things in many countries around the world. He has dealt with heads of state, local contractors, banks (hedging against currency risk for the duration of the job), and done well in the most difficult place to do business, New York.

      I am not fooled by his bluster, his crassness, his hair. I overlook those. This is his external persona. Underneath all that is a master strategist and tactician. He plays his cards close to his vest, bringing them out when most advantageous. He is playing three-dimensional chess while his opponents are reading the instructions on the checkers box.

      He has reared five wonderful children, nurtured them through two divorces (although I don’t really count Marla Maples). He has executive experience, which i badly needed in the most important executive position in the world. In spite of all his wealth, he is Main Street, not Wall St.; teachable vs. intractable; Nationalist vs. globalist; and prine to using diplomacy and the levers of international finance to keep enemies at bay, rather than ramp up the war machine on a whim.

      Not perfect, but at least ELIGIBLE to be President (which Cruz and Rubio are not, imperiling the entire election), loves America, not politically correct, not in the pocket of Wall St., and an alpha male, which we need again. GO TRUMP.

    Sigh…… You know, Dan, I’m going to reframe the question for you, so you know where things are really at. We don’t give a rat’s ass whether you Americans are “behind Israel”. We don’t give a shit whether you “have our back” or not. After 8 years of that muzzie garbage, Obama, IT DOESN’T MATTER ANYMORE! AND NEITHER DOES YOUR YANKEE DOLLAR!

    I’ll tell you what matters.

    We will likely be attacked by Iran with nuclear weapons, hitting both Tel Aviv and Haifa. Millions of Jews WILL DIE! Now, the question is WILL THERE BE VENGEANCE? We are told by someone who apparently has seen the future that the IDF will disappear after two days of concentrated attacks on our land by an international force led by Barak Obama. But will those with their fingers on OUR NUKES disappear as well? The prime minister will probably die, as will a lot of his cabinet and the members of our parliament. But, our soldiers, in or out of uniform, may still have their fingers on the nuclear trigger.

    THE FIRST TARGET WILL BE THE QA’ABA – TO PROVE TO THE MUZZIES THAT NO GOD CARES ABOUT SAVAGE ASSHOLES. A SECOND TARGET MAY BE TEHRAN -SO THAT THE PERSIANS KNOW THEY CANNOT COMMIT MASS MURDER WITHOUT RETALIATION. WE ARE NOT THE HELPLESS JEWS OF EUROPE!

    WE HAVE LOTS OF NUKES – AND LOTS OF REASONS TO SEEK VENGEANCE ON YOU “GENTILES” WHO HAVE TRIED TO MURDER US OFF OVER SEVENTEEN CENTURIES! DON’T EVER FORGET THAT! PEOPLE LIKE ME WOULD LOVE TO POCK THE PLANET WITH OUR NUKES SO THAT YOU ALL LEARN THAT THERE IS VENGEANCE FOR HUMILIATION, RAPE AND MURDER!

    FINALLY IS THE REAL QUESTION THAT YOU AMERICANS NEED TO PONDER. DOES ISRAEL – AND OUR GOD, THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE, THE GOD OF ISRAEL – HAVE YOUR BACK?

    Now, don’t get the idea that I am angry at you, Dan. But, I really need to help you refocus on what really matters – even if you are an atheist.

      Ruvy, I am new to this blog, but I don’t see where Israel is the focus of this article. Did I miss something? BTW, I am a big supporter of Israel, just don’t see the connection here.
