Inexplicable. Birds of a feather.

You can almost hear the clicks of the votes going over to whomever the Democrats nominate.

Basically, his stated reason for the pardon is that they didn't do anything he wouldn't have done in the same circumstances, so they did nothing wrong. Which is precisely why he needs to NOT be our President. Among other reasons. At least Bloomberg is trying to buy the Presidency with his "own" money, instead of financing his campaign with donations people thought were going to a veterans' charity. The whole thing is pathetic.

I am just tired of this campaign. Trump started his the day after the last election. Rather than building a record of accomplishments on which to run, he has held endless rallies where some of the crowd was hired, given signs, hats, and t-shirts, and stirred to a frenzy. The Democrats have run a campaign that should have generated much enthusiasm but has ended by nit-picking one another to death. I don't see anything good headed our way unless there are changes. Frankly. I like the Canadian system where national campaigns can only last for one month. The prices paid for campaigns are even more obscene than the salaries of baseball players.

I agree with that 100%. There should be a dollar limit placed on campaigns depending on the office and that's all they get. No PACs, which are just bank accounts with a few rules designed to get around the maximum contribution rules. And the sitting President would not be allowed to travel at government expense on Air Force One to campaign rallies or events, his campaign budget would have to bear that expense.

Although, tongue-in-cheek, it almost seems a shame to take the Trump rallies away from the Democrats that they appear to be helping out in red states with close elections. Trump shows up and the boost pushes the Democrat over the top.

I realize that watching a series of debates moving from state to state is for the benefit of the voters in those states, though by now anyone paying attention and planning to vote in the primaries can probably state the positions of each candidate by heart.
