When the world stopped listening to America

Scott Gilmore: It’s become increasingly clear that U.S. power is not only absent under Trump, but unneeded. It is unlikely anyone will unlearn this lesson.

Presidential legacies are slippery things. Occupants of the Oval Office always try to frame their administration in the best light possible, hoping that history will remember their accomplishments and not their failures. History is a horrible gossip, however. We remember that William Howard Taft was so obese he needed a custom bathtub and not how he stood up to powerful monopolies. Likewise, Monica Lewinsky’s blue dress will still be talked long after we’ve forgotten Bill Clinton’s economic policies.
There is no doubt Donald Trump has high expectations for his legacy. He began to talk up his accomplishments almost before he had even moved in to the White House. By his own account Trump has done more than any previous president, and ranks himself as the best since Lincoln.
Public opinion currently disagrees. In spite of a growing economy, the majority of voters do not believe Trump has been doing a good job. In fact, according to a new USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll, less than 30 per cent of Americans would be happy if he was re-elected in 2020.
So, if the Trump presidency does come to an end next year, what will be his legacy? The president’s supporters would likely point to the booming economy. It is true the markets have never been higher, but they grew at a much faster rate under his predecessor. What’s more, the consensus among economists is the few interventions made by Trump (tariffs, tax cuts, and the dismantling of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reforms) have hurt growth.

Reagan proved long ago that it made no difference who was president or even if nobody was.

A friend was talking about who or what would make a better president than Trump. I said, "my dog and he's dead".

Trump is the very apex of stupid American, the highest denomination of the currency, the stuff of perfect collapse. I can,t wait to witness thier collapse, I will enjoy every bite they swallow of comeupanse . Fuk America. We are indeed blessed to witness Imperial decline of this sort. The burning cities the ragged mobs eating each other, crumbling infrascructure , disease mob rule, complete collapse, I will enjoy every second of it.

Go for the part where there is no connection between being President while being in the grave, there is one to the dog being smarter than the current one when the dog was alive.
It only seems deep because you are so shallow.

I can see why the left would hate a strong economy and a leader that has the citizens best interests at heart.

Trump or any republican for that matter could run balanced budgets , pay off the debt and have full employment and the left would still hate .

They'd have to have another attempted Russiagate coup or something to cheer themselves up by failing some more.

It's the victim mentality I guess, even if it's just being victims of themselves.

Many of those posters that have a hard-on for the USA are more upset that a capitalist system is succeeding despite their unending rants for extreme socialism and the resulting utopia

More was collected from the farmers than given out so they were loans that were repaid.

Here's another from "Business Insider" ...another liberal, prog rag, eh?

http://www.businessinsider.com/trump...nalysis-2019-8

The G-7 is supposed to be a meeting of like-minded liberal Democracies.

Maybe, the next one will be a G-6 as the United States no longer qualifies.

Because it totally depends on people having jobs to pay. For it. And deliver the services.By Medicare I am assuming we are talking about US healthcare., Even Canada's system is run on a capitalist structure with most drs being self employed even though its inception is usually attributed to a socialist.
