The thought of this "man" potentially being elected President makes my stomach turn.

Well, I don't know about Trump hiding anything, but clinton definitely is. She deleted thousands of emails that were not hers to delete because she kept a private server in one of many bathrooms; presumably for the express reason of hiding information from the general public that could very well land her in prison for the rest of her life; a very frail life by the looks of things. She can hardly move, has no balance, has coughing fits, and still faces a lot of legal and ethics questions.

She hasn't given a press conference in almost a year. What is she hiding? Her medical info is obviously way out of date. Why won't she release a current and up to date medical record to let her supporters know she will be around longer than a couple of months? What is she hiding?

It is interesting that posting the direct quotes of Mr Trump can result in my being labeled as a “hater.” I actually feel that people who make up “stuff” about others are the actual haters. However I fully understand that the truth is difficult for conservative/obstructionists to deal with, so if calling me a “hater” makes them feel better so be it.

As to Mrs Clint’s emails and the obsession over them, I am far more concerned with the more than 22 million e-mails destroyed by the Bush kids cabal that demand the answer to what were they hiding. And why no umbrage regarding Rice and Powell using private servers?

As to Mrs Clinton’s health, her doctors report is fully up to date and matches in details those provided by Obama, Romney, Bush, et al. However Trumps medical report is truly a joke obviously put together by a whacked out drug addict who used he father’s name on the letterhead, provided a fake website, and is full of so many inaccuracies as to be a complete joke.

So now we have two important questions – Why won’t Trump release his tax returns? Why won’t Trump release his medical record? What is he hiding?

Poor poor liberals... just don't know how to answer honest questions without lying. So sad so typical. Clinton's health report is over a year old and most definitely not up to date.

Get back to us when you can answer honestly; then we will have something to discuss. Till then; your rhetoric is nothing more than the old and tired rhetoric we have been hearing for years from the left. Doesn't it ever get old lying and making excuses for the fully corrupt? Really!! I would really like to know!!

PS: Please try to keep up; there is no one named Bush in this race for President or haven't you noticed? I do realize it's difficult when one's mind has been indoctrinated and brainwashed but surely you know this!!

You still have not answered the most important questions about what clinton was hiding when she deleted all those government, non personal emails, so what is she hiding?

Your questions about Trump are completely irrelevant until you can answer the much more important questions about a public servant who has swindled us for years. Mr. Trump is a private citizen whereas ms. clinton is not, or rather, was not while she swindled us all. A lie for an answer like you have done so far is simply not acceptable. You must accept the responsibility for the lies of clinton before we can move forward.

You cannot slither out of this. It must be answered before moving forward.

The contention that somehow responding to concerns regarding Trump is “slithering” away from the issues is, at best, disingenuous. Conservative/obstructionists keep insisting Mrs Clinton is a criminal who “swindled” the American people while never offering an iota of proof. That proof would include indictments, arrests, trials, convictions and punishment. Until such information can be provided all that is left are hyperbolic nonsense and innuendo – the typical actions of conservative/obstructionists.

Claiming that the idiot Bush kid is not running for office conveniently ignores that he and his cabal deleted over 22 million e-mails – which MUST be important since e-mails have consumed the conservative/obstructionists - while SOS’s Rice and Powell used private servers. To anyone with a modicum of common sense these actions rate as much attention as the paltry number of personal e-mails supposedly deleted by Mrs Clinton.

As to Mr Trump, he is seeking the highest office in our nation and as such must answer to the American people when it comes to such basic information as his tax returns and a medical report that rises above the level of a joke. Those questions are not “irrelevant” they are important to the measure of the man to serve his nation – something he has dodged his entire life.

So, as always, the two questions remain – Why won’t Trump release his tax returns? Why won’t Trump release a complete medical dossier? What is he hiding?

And until these questions cannot be properly addressed any “slithering” rests in the bailiwick of the conservative/obstructionists and we cannot move forward until they are answered.

It looks like Trump has that incurable disease called "foot in mouth disease", he is incurable, the only good thing is only the blindly partisan will not be able to see he is a lame horse in a race he cannot win!!

RH: Really? Then why is he ahead in the most significant polls? I think the clinton's corruption is finally catching up to them. It won't be complete though until they answer for their crimes in a court of law.

Maybe you can tell us why the left so easily dismisses her crimes. It's a real puzzle for those of us who are honest.


HwyRover 4 months, 2 weeks ago

Maybe someone can tell us why the conservative/obstructionists keep making comments about Mrs Clinton's "crimes" when she has yet to be indicted, arrested, tried, convicted or punished for any "crime?" Until all of the above blanks can be filled in making statements regrading "crimes" is just hyperbolic trash.

As to Trump I know of no "significant" polls that indicate he is "ahead" except for the ones where he came out slightly ahead of bed-bugs, lice and used car salesmen.

And of course there is still no answer to the questions - Why won't Trump release his tax returns? Why won't Trump release an actual medical report instead of a joke letter from an idiot? What is he hiding?

Bob Moore: Thank you for confirming beyond even the slightest doubt that liberalism truly is a mental illness. A national problem that needs to be dealt with in the most expedient and compassionate way as possible. The mental institutions the left forced to be closed because they knew they belonged in them as patients need to be brought back to help and treat the 20% of the population with this heinous illness that affects the brain at the most basic level.

At the very least these people with this unfortunate disease need to be treated under supervised care; of that there is absolutely no question.


HwyRover 4 months, 2 weeks ago

Bob Morrow - Actually a true mental disease can be seen in the conservative/obstructionists who insist upon supporting an insane school-yard bully, coward who, as an expert con-man, has hoodwinked the intellectually challenged with a non-stop litany of irrational and idiotic statements that fly in the face of conventional wisdom. Anyone who believes there will be a Wall, least of all one "paid for by Mexico"; that 11million people will be deported; and that our nation will demand a religious test for anyone wishing to enter our nation is indeed operating with less than a full load of common sense.

What we see are ridiculous comments casting aspersions on those who have identified Trump as a truly insane person, in place of any actual substance regarding why conservative/obstructionists keep supporting such a person.

And why the conservative/obstructionists keep avoiding two of the most important questions regarding their loser is disturbing - Why won't Trump release his tax returns? Why won't trump release an actual medical report instead of a joke letter written by a fool? What is Trump hiding?

Trumps leading in what polls? 1% to 2% African American support some say now dropped to less than 1%, 14% to 19% Hispanic American support, hate to bust anyone's bubble but Romney lost with 4% African vote, 27% Hispanic American votes not a poll but post election results. I think many do not realize actual vote count will not decide this election as it does not in all national presidential elections but the all important "electoral college vote", which is not looking good for the Trump fellow, but hey let his fans believe he is winning in some mythical land slide with these invisible but ashamed voters who will magically appear on election day, about as likely as the land slide victory of Romney with his Mormon magical underwear!
