Hewlett Packard Enterprise CEO Meg Whitman said Donald Trump's policies could cause a U.S. recession and would increase the national debt.

Who's next?  Can only imagine the list of names coming out against will only increase.

This is an area where men typically exaggerate

I think it's time the short-fingered vulgarian produced his "long form". Not in a debate, necessarily, but show it to the media.

Megan Kelly needs a good laugh, I nominate her as part of the Drumpf endowment media pool. 

 
The only people who decide what is fair or not are the voters, he can do whatever he wants.  If people still vote for him, fine if they don't fine.  There is no fair in politics and elections.  Personally I didn't give a crap about Obama's citizenship nor do I care about Trump's tax return, I was not going to vote for Obama anyway nor Trump this time no matter what and the Trump and Obama supporters were and are going to vote for their candidates either way.  It is all a crock o' poopay.

Yeah, I agree with you. I keep hearing how Trump or Cruz getting the nomination would be the end of the Republican party. Things don't work that way. Our two major parties each represent coalitions of demographic groups and interest groups, coalitions that change in composition and strength of ties over time. The leaders off the GOP may get booted out or lose influence (like the Bushes), but the coalitions will largely survive because they make economic and political sense. The Democratic party was a mess after McGovern lost in '72 and again when Carter's four years went so badly. But it re-invented itself by moving away from Big Government and reliance on unions. 

It may be that the Republican working class and the rich part ways for a while, only to find common ground again. But these days it sure feels like Republicans have hit the end of the era of Reagan, despite all their invocation of him, and don't know how to move forward.

I can't stand the Republican party but the rise of Trump is frightening as is the voters' apparent willingness to take Rubio and Cruz seriously. Unless the Democrats get veto-proof majorities in Congress and a majority of Supreme Court justices on their side, they'll have to deal with the GOP.  The Republicans are driving their klown kar over a cliff and taking the country with them.

As for Trump: seriously? This guy is all hat and no cattle. Four bankruptcies, a long-standing habit of relying on government aid for his projects, a sham "university" and an obsessive-compulsion to boast and insult. He has zero credible policy plans. He says he's going to help working-class Americans but his tax "plan" is heavily tilted to the rich. He lies and contradicts himself All. The. Time. 

Donald Trump is a freak show who makes money by slapping his name on a project and avoiding any further comment.  I know some people are desperate but his supporters are getting suckered so badly.

No one left standing, that's for sure.  There's a few I could get behind, but they are not willing to go for it.  

For me, one thing is for sure, no more one term Senators, even though Rand Paul violated that rule.  But he left the stage long ago.

In 2012, my dream ticket would have been Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich of everyone running then.

Which people? Certainly not you, but you aren't in the target audience.

The crowd Trump has brought into his fold mostly weren't Republicans before his candidacy, and likely won't stay Republicans if he drops out. I think the Republican party made a tactical mistake in not wanting to alienate them up to now.

They should have picked one of two paths:

2) the radio/TV talking heads that are still aligned with the party and spreading its propaganda. 
But trotting out Romney, almost unheard from since the Kenyan Socialist beat him fair and square, is a pathetic move. 

1) Like, say, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan? If not him, who would you suggest?

2) Believe it or not they don't work for the party, and have their own interests and audiences to pander to.

I have no way of knowing of course, but it's possible that Romney was speaking for himself and that no one put him up to it. He's not an officeholder, he's not subject to party discipline in any meaningful way.

And I'm glad he did it. Hopefully that shames more Republicans into denouncing Trump. I also hope douchebags like Chris Christie and Jeff Sessions pay a price for their pandering.
