Thread is slow so I'll continue jacking it.

So now the captain is saying his crew said things were flying at the ship.
What kind of things?
The blast is near water level.

Something stinky.

"A national Quinnipiac University poll released this week, for example, showed Joe Biden with a 53-40 lead against President Trump. But it wasn't just Biden — all the Democratic contenders Quinnipiac included in matchups with Trump were significantly ahead of the president: Bernie Sanders 51-42, Kamala Harris 49-41, Elizabeth Warren 49-42, Cory Booker 47-42 and Pete Buttigieg 47-42. Meanwhile, in an interview with ABC News's George Stephanopoulos, Trump dismissed any polls that showed him trailing the Democrats. 1 "No, my polls show that I'm winning everywhere," Trump said."

Trailing Cory Booker??????

Aren't these the same polls that showed Hillary was slaughtering Trump? They don't mean anything.

I see you're still putting a lot of faith in polls, thought you guys would have learned from 2016.

What has happened? Nothing.
Could something have been done by now? Probably.

Bolton isn't liked by our enemies and that's why he was hired. Has Bolton wanted to light up Iran? Yep.
Has he? Nope.

Again, imo, I think death is the last thing on Trump's to-do list. He talks tough but I don't think he ever wants war under his watch.
If things get too sketchy in that straight with millions relying on the oil, Japan alone, then it's anyone's guess.

Why would UAE or ourselves bomb those vessels? To spike prices? To instigate war?
What am I missing?

There is something to that of course,it could get worse with someone new but I doubt it. Seems unlikely that the country or the world will continue to accept the way things are currently going.
We may be exactly correct that it was Iran sponsored forces that caused the damage to the oil tankers, but it was the US that pulled out of the nuclear treaty unilaterally without consulting our European allies.And we placed additional sanctions against Iran. It seems unlikely our European allies will support any efforts to escalate events against Iran-they don't trust us because of Trump's behavior. Europeans generally see him as a trouble maker. It seems we are just bouncing from conflict to conflict without much of a strategy.

Strategy? That may be the first time somebody used that word in a sentence with Trump

While I know this is just another example of you talking shit, I'll play along.

Are you professing that Trump had no strategy to win the Presidency? That would make his win all the more impressive!

Again I wonder why you haters have to resort to bullshit and hyperbole? We both know there's legitimate things to criticize; yet people are still somehow driven to go further and just start making things up and exaggerating. This losing grip on facts and reality is a clear symptom of TDS.

I hope every poll come October shows any democrat 90%+ to Trump. It will just mean their voters are going to stay home cause it's an "easy win".

I want conservatives to feel the desperation like they are on the brink of extinction, that is the motivation to get them to take the time off work (something the majority of the left doesn't do...) and get out and vote.

2020 will only come down to voter turn out, doesn't matter what the polls say. That is where Trump I think has the edge. I don't know any liberal "excited" for Biden, who I believe is their best chance... which is hysterical that their social justice warrior campaign will end up being two old white hetero biological males.

Good point.
Biden will have to completely redo his philosophy in a few months. Took 78 years to learn it. On the other hand what he says will have no impact on how liberals vote. Like you said..turnout, turnout, turnout

We are so far away from the next election and the way trump keeps fucking things up, along with impeachment inquiries soon to spout, it just seems unlikely that he'll be reelected. The conservatards should look to another candidate more likeable like Kasich.

things are going from bad to worse for the DNC: now all hopes for a successful Democrat Convention evaporate as TDS combines with withdrawal symptoms after the DEA announces the seizure of 16 tons of cocaine in Philly.

speaking at a fundraiser in Santa Cruz Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif, announced that he has SEEN EVIDENCE that Donald Trump was driving the truck.

We shall see if you two self-proclaimed soothsayers are correct. Meanwhile, your posts are saved for other's posterity and gloating.

At the rate of one fuckup a week, how many does that work out for trump until election day? I think maybe 60. With each fup, he loses voters.

The 'Dumbest Thing You'll Read All Day' award goes to...

MSNBC pundit Chris Hayes declared he has a “fear” that President Trump will launch a military strike to distract from the upcoming NBC News Democratic debates on June 26-27 in Miami.
