    ...why you just double down on it !

    Waters has been a laughing stock for decades but the delusional left has decided to embrace her.

    Politics has just gotten too easy.

    When Camille Paglia declares DJT has essentially already won reelection you have to wonder why the fringe doesnt get it. But I guess thats what makes them the fringe.

    No, I think the "fringe" gets it, and people like you are delusional. Here are a few examples of things Trump will take credit for, and yet they began under Obama:

    "President Obama and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang pledged in a meeting Monday to cooperate more fully to pressure North Korea to cease its nuclear weapons activity.

    The White House said the two leaders condemned North Korea’s nuclear test on Sept. 9 and “resolved to strengthen coordination” to halt Pyongyang’s nuclear work."

    This one is new, and again shows how little Republicans care for Veterans

    "Perhaps the most significant change has been the quadrupling of funding for the European Reassurance Initiative. The increase will provide for the constant rotation of an American armored brigade in the European theater, the propositioning of new equipment on the territory of NATO’s central and eastern European member states, improvements in regional infrastructure, more exercises and capacity building for the smaller allies bordering Russia.

    The administration has backtracked on other aspects of its original budget-cutting plans. Not only has it redeployed forces to Iraq, and delayed its withdrawal of “boots on the ground” in Afghanistan, it has also deployed small numbers of special operators to Syria, with the likelihood of more to come. Special forces have even been reported to be operating in Libya, a marked change from the administration’s “lead from behind” policy that the White House articulated as it precipitated the fall of Muammar el-Qaddafi.

    The administration is pursuing a massive modernization of its strategic nuclear forces, with initial funding for upgraded weapons and for both a new long-range bomber and a follow-on to the Trident submarine. It has reversed its plan to retire A-10 close air support attack aircraft, which have proved useful in striking against ISIS forces. It has dropped its efforts to end production of the Navy’s F-18 E/F fighter/attack aircraft. And it has increased its planned purchases of Tomahawk cruise missiles, instead of reducing them, as originally intended. Secretary Carter has made it clear that all these reversals have been driven by the demands of fighting ISIS and deterring Russia and China. That the White House acceded to these reversals is a clear indication that after years of living in a national security dream world, the Obama administration, like the Carter administration before it, has been forced to confront the reality that pious pronouncements have little impact on America’s actual or potential adversaries."

    "A proposal in Congress would impose a new $2,400 fee on troops who want to sign up to get the GI Bill after discharge.

    The idea is being considered by the House Veterans Affairs Committee next Wednesday at a hearing.

    The nation’s veterans groups appear to be steaming about the proposed change.

    “We are still a nation at war. We have troops actively engaged in Iraq, in Afghanistan, and now in Syria,” said leader of Veterans of Foreign Wars, Brian Duffy, in an issued statement."
