Neither Trump nor Cruz would make a decent president.
Trump has been caught countless times on either side of the fence,
depending on the audience.
Though Cruz is not guilty of that sin, his inability to get along with
his peers would make him an ineffective president. Ironically, since his
agenda is a bad one, I'd be fine without him not having the ability to
promote it...but the consequence would be deadlock. Important issues
would go unresolved.

than "most hated man in Washington"
Here is the first one:

That would seem to be a relatively minor problem compared to the long
list of Trump defects. Trumps defects include not being able to get
along with anyone, whether they are in Congress or not.
And clearly a lot of voters in both parties want
someone who won't just go along to get along. An example of that kind
of skunk is Mitch McConnell. Look at what he just did. The GOP
had a bill, Kate's Law, that would provide for a mandatory 5 year
prison sentence for any illegal aliens who have violent felony
convictions and have been deported at least once before. That is a
very reasonable bill, one that it's hard to imagine any rational
American, looking out for the American people, would oppose. Instead
of bringing it up for a straight vote, McConnell tacked it on to
a bill that would have defunded sanctuary cities. He knew the latter
would not pass. Why did he tack it on? He won't say, he won't
even show up on Fox News to answer questions. But the logical
reason is that he wanted to protect his Democrat buddies, by giving
them cover so they could vote both down together, instead of having
to go on record against Kate's Law by itself. THAT is the "get along"
crowd that so many Americans are fed up with. And it also shows
you how despicable the modern Democratic Party has become. They
are actually on the side of violent illegal alien felons, instead
of the American people.
Ironically, since his
Cruz's overall agenda is perfectly reasonable.
And you say that like it's a bad thing? Who are the most admired
and by who exactly? All of Congress has an approval rating of
what? 15%? So, who's admiring who?
Career politicians who protect each other, like Bitch McConnell,
instead of protecting the American people with Kate's Law. The
Republicans and Cruz would quickly learn how to get along with

The other day I mentioned that because Kurt V. Ullman , from his
comments demonstrated that he knows more about the Constitution than
everyone else here combined, I decided to shut up.
That was a few days ago, then I realized that a discussion of the
Constitution on a Home Repair group is not so far off topic because lets
face it, "something is broken in our country (the US)"
Since most here are the "fixit" types most should be familiar with the
(engineering) modular or "black box" approach.
For a large project, teams of engineers are given specific problems and
the solution must fit within a "black box" of given proportions.
They are given the input, they are told specifically what the output
No one cares what goes on inside the box.
Now, look at the Constitution as that black box.
The framework is a given and the "engineers" do not have the ability to
change it. In this country we know what is being fed into the "black
box" and I'll tell you one thing: something good is supposed to come
out. If shit comes out (which seems to be happening a lot) the
"engineers" have fucked up.
If the best minds cannot ascertain how to get the desired output within
the parameters of the unalterable "black box" then the project manager
must be consulted to see how the box could be modified to allow the
engineers to "fit in" the solution.
The pundits I have heard say that, if one were a Dem, Cruz would be the
preferred candidate - less likely to win than Trump.
Based on that, I guess a Dem would choose Cruz and a Repub would choose
As an Independent, I'm just grateful for the massive spike in
argue about their respective ideas on how to save YOUR life! :<
Sad that in a country of some 300 millions -- probably at least a
third of them "legally qualified" to hold the office -- this clown
circus is the BEST we can come up with!
I'm open to running on the Republican ticket. My
slogan will be a baby seal under every club. Never
mind the chicken in every pot. Muggles can be my
social director, and Uncle Monster my secretary of
defense. My first act will be to nominate Ed
Pawlowski as supreme court justice. Robert Bowman
as secretary of transportation.
