Neither choice was good, but to think the Trump is worthy of your vitriol, when you didn't do the same to prior, just as bad, people is laughable.

I do not agree with your opinion of "just as bad". I think I'm pretty clear on that matter. I consider this president elect to be the worst offender by a couple of orders of magnitude.

So laugh it up.

Re: Was this an anti-woman anti-foreigner vote?

Sure it was anti-everything. All of us deplorables are racists, homophobes, sexists, islamophobes, xenophobes. We're women haters, and anti-immigrant. Naturally we didn't vote for Obama because of his skin color, and now we didn't vote for Hillary because of her lady bits.

Really, we on the right are basically haters. Bitter clingers.

I would never take into consideration policies or consequences of who is elected in terms of Supreme Court etc. /sarcasm

That's what the media and leftists have been saying about me for years. They tell me I wouldn't vote for a candidate who wants to reduce the reach of government and reduce federal debt even though those are important to me. I'm just a hater, a deplorable, a bitter clinger.

And the left is sitting in stunned surprise by the outcome of the election.

BO is the man who basically calls all white people racists. Veiled, but that is the truth. And that is as bad as anything out of Trumps mouth.

I think he (Trump) is a pompous ass, but, he was a better choice than HRC and he is now the Pres, he deserves the support the office earns.

No he does not. He deserves the support he personally earns by what he does in the office. He's not the King, and I do not owe him fealty. It is my patriotic duty to not actively undermine him. But he is now just the president elect with no record. My support comes contingent upon his actions.

So you are a white man hater? That is exactly what the left says about anyone who does not fall in line the with Great BO.

No it wasn't. Nor was it a white-lash vote either. Such manufactured nonsense.

sorry you can't handle a simple analogy. You can't stand Trump, I get that and I get why. however, your accusations are exact moral equivalents of the BS the average working white guy has had to put up with for 8 years. Just shows me what your true character is...

Re: Was this an anti-woman anti-foreigner vote?

For those who feel Trump's win is a giant tragedy, place the blame right on the feet of the Democratic machine. The DNC conspired against Bernie (probably the only serious candidate on either side who might actually have a measurable level of integrity) so that they could force their lap dog on the ticket. Reason would suggest that Hillary owed the right people the right things and therefore could be trusted to be properly controllable as President.

The Republicans did not do much better, I'd say they won the race in spite of the party leaders. The RNC tried to engineer the nomination process just as the Dems did, they just were unable to execute. A significant portion of their party essentially flipped the GOP the bird and supported Trump, some simply because he was the guy the GOP leaders DIDN'T want.

If this election tells us anything, it's that there is a growing dissatisfaction with the bloated, corrupt, inefficient and incompetent system as it sits now. The US government stopped working for the people a long time ago, it now serves itself and its well-connected benefactors. This is party independent, they both suck. Just about everything one side accuses the other of they are guilty of themselves.

It's almost comical. The only way to get an in-electable candidate elected, is to run him/her against someone even less electable. Or, essentially give them two choices that are similarly distasteful. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FlcngdW2Ju4

Take heart, those of you who are hyperventilating. Life will go on. Some people thought the world would end when FDR won. It didn't. Nixon was the devil and would ruin the country. He didn't. Reagan was going to start the next world war. He didn't. Bill Clinton, GW, Obama...they were all going to destroy our nation and somehow we are still here. Perhaps to the most optimistic of us, this may be the time that the political machine starts to turn away from their big-money influences and those extreme portions of their party and start listening to the majority of us who have moderate values. Maybe one day we will actually have a candidate that represents us. Hey, I can dream...

But to further muddy these waters...more people voted for Hillary than Trump, so yes, she lost the presidency, but not because more people liked Trump.

And yet, virtually every incumbent establishment candidate won on both sides of the aisle, so there was no anti establishment wave, and added to that, Clinton got more votes than trump. If this was actually something broader than just Trump, the loudmouth, brash, outsider, he would have won the popular vote, and there would have been turnover in congress.

Unfortunately, by running a divisive campaign, he deserves no support right off the bat. If he manages not to screw things up more than they are now, he can earn some support.

But he set the table. He's responsible for the level of animus that we have now. He has to figure out how to pull things together if he wants a modicum of respect and support.

I'm reminded of how even highly placed republicans like Mitch McConnel treated BO when he became POTUS. It wasn't with respect or support. So following that precedent I see no reason why Trump deserves any either. What comes around goes around.
