Yep, my thinking too.

It's going to be hard to prove Trump received favors from Putin, because the "favors" are debt forgiveness and Putin keeping his mouth shut about two decades of money laundering and consorting with oligarchs and organized criminals.

This is why Russia has been getting away with murder and constant provocations that Trump ignores.

"Vladimir, you want the Arctic Circle? It's yours!"

It's true.

Every American should read (or reread) Ian Kershaw's book The End: The Defiance and Destruction of Hitler's Germany. It is neither exaggeration nor hyperbole. The psychology of the Third Reich at the end of the war was very, very similar to what we're seeing, albeit on a much smaller scale. But it's dangerous as hell. Many people will die and the leader doesn't care--in fact he never cared.

It's about one man saving face and taking everything we cherish down with him.

When he's 'missing' he's usually not far from a TV screen

Also, the DJIA tanked today, and he's surely taking that very personally, and wondering what to do about his collapsing campaign and the economy that is about to crater all over again (just like so many of you predicted it would).

Well, we did learn how grateful and fortunate we should feel

if we "only" lose a quarter million Americans by autumn.



Meanwhile, I'll order another half dozen cases of canned tuna.

It must be "Tony", Danny's imaginary friend in The Shining.

Psychologist: And does Tony "tell you things"?
Danny: Tony is a little boy that lives in my mouth... and it's like he shows me things

This is how I see it too

It's also how he's rationalized allowing the pandemic to run amok. In his mind, we all deserve to be punished for not appreciating that he is a "great president, as great as or greater than Lincoln." It's part of a pattern of vengeance that is a core characteristic of his very being.

It's also an extension of his promised revenge against Impeachment.

He fails, and then he justifies his failures retroactively as "successes."

We'll I'm glad he's spending so much time fighting with Fox News

It's kind of like Hitler yelling at Goebbels while the Red Army marches on Berlin.

Top GOP senator fears Trump is 'soft' with independents, urges shift in strategy

The remarks by Sen. John Thune come amid sliding presidential poll numbers that have sparked concern among Republican leaders.

WASHINGTON ó Senate Majority Whip John Thune sounded the alarm Wednesday that President Donald Trump's support among independent voters was "soft," urging a change in strategy in light of a New York Times survey that showed the president trailing Democrat Joe Biden by double digits.

The Times/Siena national poll found Biden winning 50 percent of registered voters, with Trump winning 36 percent. Among independents, Biden led by a substantial 18 points.

"Right now, obviously Trump has a problem with the middle of the electorate, with independents, and they're the people who are undecided in national elections," Thune, R-S.D., told reporters in the Capitol. "I think he can win those back, but it'll probably require not only a message that deals with substance and policy but I think a message that conveys, perhaps, a different tone."

In 2016, Trump won independent voters by 6 points, according to exit polls compiled by NBC News.

An observation from a Twitter user:

Text: For him to say this kind of thing in public means they know their Senate majority is probably gone. Itís a heads-up to colleagues that the OK to distance from Trump is imminent.

Interesting. Wishful thinking? Or is he onto something? It goes without saying, Trump will be unable to "switch tone."

Thanks for the encouragement

I'm so tired of being lectured to ignore the polls, like I'm a little child incapable of both understanding and paying attention to polls, and working hard to get my candidates elected.


Thank you

Anyone who wants to ignore the polls is welcome to.

I'm not ignoring the polls.

I'm going to allow the polls to motivate me and continue to work like my life depends on it and continue to make donations to my candidates.

Paying attention to the polls and working hard are not opposite concepts. They are complimentary.

When Serena Williams steps onto a tennis court, she believes she's going to win. It doesn't make her play less hard.
