What qualities and characteristics do you think the President of the United States should have? As far as this poster is concerned, our current leader has none, nor did any of those who ran against him.

It is just an indication how far the dumbing down of America has succeeded. Like George Carlin said, "the government does not want well educated people capable of critical thought."

its about LESS evil
the left has not made its case this time around

they did when they whacked JFK (and family) though
...so, what we have is the deep state running things - and they are evil

It may be. A long time ago the robber barons put their man in the White House. So who knows.

I Think the only qualifications a President needs (1) is the sincere wish to do what is best for the whole country. NOT for special groups: NOT for lobbyists: NOT for financial gain; NOT for ***-kissing other nations. (2) the ability and connections to surround himself with capable people who he can delegate and trust to get the jobs done.
I think Trump is the right man if only his detractors would get the hell off his back and stop throwing road blocks in front of everything he tries to do.
The best thing Trump has done so far is break from tradition and introduce new ways of doing things. The 'old school' crowd needed a good shaking up. The 'old school' cronies are now running scared and doing whatever they can to hang onto their power and positions.

Maybe your hero will introduce term limits for congress. We'll see how sincere he is about breaking the status quo.

Yeah!!!
Do like Clinton and bomb a country every time you get caught screwing around on the wife

Bill Clinton ordered bombing of Iraq to distract from Lewinsky scandal
...Additionally, his actions, all illegal, led to a decrease in respect for the Oval Office and officeholders.
thehilltalk.com/2016/08/29/bi...nica-lewinsky/ (external - login to view)

here is a BIG list of clinton scandal bombings everywhere
etc etc etc
"But it soon came out that one of his supposed terrorist targets was the Sudan’s only medicinal factory, ..." etc etc etc

...By showing toughness, he could further his reelection after being called wishy-washy and antimilitary. One writer believed that Clinton, in expectation of cheap oil and huge aircraft sales, intentionally advanced Saudis’ desire for an Islamic country in Europe.

I think describing a politician as "presidential" isn't necessarily a compliment. It's a kind of charisma that awes people into subservience. It's the ability to command authority and have people like you for it.

Get real. Trump's bull**** is intentional and open, and constant. Look at the wiretappinging. Just goes on and on knowing that idiots will believe him if he just lies enough about it. It's too bad. He could be a damn good President. His legacy will be very different.

It's a matter of whose lies you choose to believe.
Re the wiretapping; not necessarily 'wiretapping' but 'surveillance'. The authorities are all saying, "No, it couldn't happen. Its against the law. If it happened we would know about it".
Actually it can be done illegally. There are enough people in high places who would know how to do it. If that were the case one would hardly expect that person(s) to come forward and say publicly, 'Yeah, I/we did it!"
Obama was known to have wiretapped before. Why not again?
Too many people are claiming to know the facts when they actually don't know.

He says he didn't say wiretapped then he says wiretapped (as does his right hand clown Spicer). It's ridiculous to listen to these idiots

You are being "wiretapped" right now.

Me too.

It's how that information is disseminated that crosses the line.

Now if you say you never said that (they repeat it) you will sound like the liar in chief.

If you say you didn't refer to this then you would be like Trump.

Did you read it?

Everybody is already monitored. Everybody.

I don't care that they listen in and collect information on me but I do care about how it is used beyond national/international security.

If data collected from Trump Tower was released to his opponents in the election then that is some serious sh-t.

I think perhaps Trump gives us a clue to a few, a short list of which would include


1. less impetuosity
2. more consideration and slower to react. (similar to "1")
3. quieter in his deportment
4. sometimes better to remain silent than voicing unpopular views
5. not displaying everything on one's mind.
