  • Love Him or Hate Him

    If you think the swamp needs to be drained, here's an example of how it will be done:

    Ken Vogel and Ben Schreckinger write in Politico of reports that the Trump campaign’s aides and allies want the consultants and vendors behind the “Never Trump” movement barred from lucrative general-election contracts.

    Donald Trump’s campaign is considering hitting his Republican enemies where it hurts: Their wallets.
    As Trump moves to work in closer concert with the Republican National Committee apparatus, some campaign aides and allies are pushing him to block lucrative party contracts from consultants who worked to keep him from winning the nomination, according to four sources familiar with the discussions.
    “The Never Trump vendors and supporters shouldn’t be in striking distance of the RNC, any of its committees or anyone working on behalf of Donald Trump,” said a Trump campaign official.
    The blacklist talk — which sources say mostly targets operatives who worked for Never Trump groups, but also some who worked for Trump’s GOP presidential rivals or their supportive super PACs — strikes against a Republican consulting class that Trump has assailed as a pillar of a corrupt political establishment. It’s a sweet bit of turnabout for Trump aides and consultants who in recent months were warned that their work for the anti-establishment billionaire real estate showman could diminish their own career prospects.

    You think that's draining the swamp? That's just petulance. His election will be run using the same staff and people as always, there's plenty of them to choose from. Punishing ones who opposed him doesn't change anything, it just shows the kind of leader he'd be.

      That's a winning recipe. The Republicans will be so thrilled to have the Trump name off their backs come November. That party is so fucked.

        It puts the apparatchiks on notice. Yes, it's a start.

          Nonsense, it's just a new and slightly larger set of apparatchiks who were previously threatening the set that are now threatening them. All of them are professional campaign workers, because that is what is needed to run a professional campaign. The only change is a vindictive petulant immature fuckwit at the top.

            No, the change is that those who made the threat that you'll never work in this town again if you support an outsider are now on the outside, looking in. Did you even read the post?

            Look how far Trump got, without the consultant class. He made them irrelevant. I'm afraid if he listens to them in the general election, he'll screw the pooch.

              Yes, I read the post and I'm a little puzzled why you are drawing the distinction. They were the part of the established operatives that went to work for trump that's all. He was hiring, they don't work for the same campaign each cycle for obvious reasons. The ones he's threatening to blacklist will go to work on congressional campaigns and be hired by presidential candidates next cycle. Association with the trump disaster is not going to look great on a resumé anyway. They work the system you have, they aren't the problem. Trump hired the consultant class at the start, he just doesn't take advice well which is part of why he won the primaries in the self destructing gop, but also why he's going to lose the general under an avalanche of ads merely pointing out what he said so far. There's only so much you can walk back while retaining any credibility at all.

                    yeah, the man who has been buying politicians for 30 years and who is part of the 1% is sure to shake things up and change politics as usual. Which is only believable if you are a complete and utter moron.

                    All that is happening is that we are cutting out the middle man. Now, instead of politicians that are bought and do the bidding of the corporate overlords, we are just putting those corporate overlords right into office. Great job, that is certain to make things better - for our corporate overlords.

                    My god you are fucking retarded.

                      Trump cares about the poor.
                      Thats why he created Trump University to educate the poor to become rich.

                        Perhaps, but you take the cake for bitter cuntery. I doubt you see much good in anything.

                        Cheers

                          With Trump as President it wouldn't be politics as usual, it would be politics as entertainment. The guy cut his teeth with Miss Universe, the USFL and The Apprentice and now he's ready to make Washington a mockery of itself.

                          If you thought obstruction was an appropriate action with Obama in office, think about the looting, hypocrisy and corruption that will take place with Trump rubber stamping anything huge or tremendous Congress throws his way. Trump isn't a stalwart defender of budgets, he's a developer with a penchant for taking on wildly expensive operations and putting losses in bankruptcy court. Congress is still just as bad as ever but with Trump and an (r) in the Oval Office they've got cover to conduct any crooked operation they want without being accused of cooperating with the other side.

                            Obstructionism is the way congress, the executive and judicial branches are supposed to work. Passing laws should be almost impossible, without cooperation and endorsement from a majority in the house, a supermajority in the senate, and a signature from the president. Everything short of that is supposed to die in committee.

                            And the budgetary process used to run quite differently. It's a sham now.

                            Obamacare never should have passed. The nation never wanted it. Had our constitutional system of government been upheld, that shit would have never hit the fan.

                              Obamacare is not the problem. It's the scapegoat.
