"Trump has, thus far, made casual phone calls to the leaders of Taiwan and Pakistan, two significant countries on the world stage involved in fraught issues.

He has also casually suggested that flag burners be not merely tried as criminals, but deprived of their citizenship. He has done these things, and others, without the slightest introspection, consultation with others, knowledge of the issues, or even acknowledgment of institutional structure or constraint. And all this as president-elect, before he is even inaugurated.

These, my friends, are not the actions of a president, but those of a caudillo, asserting his power to actuate major policies on his whim, and his alone, without constraint or consideration. This is the man whose most famous line prior to his political campaign was, 'You're fired!' Or, worse than a caudillo. He is demonstrating, over and over again, that in his mind he conflates the state, and the country, with himself, and himself alone. He then hosts victory rallies and claims an overwhelming electoral victory in a country which voted by more than 2.5 million votes for his opponent over himself.

Do not trivialize this." -- Michael K.

The GOP's Radical, Far Right Conservative Presumptive Nominee

During this coming presidential campaign, all President Obama's team has to do is run ads like the one below, in Rmoney's own words, to remind Americans of how radical and severe rightwing candidate Rmoney admits he is.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY ROMNEYCARE!

Ha! Excellent! I love the emphasis on "unforgettable". Knowing Romney, he'll soon be resetting his etch-a-sketch for his pivot to the center, but in the age of YouTube, a candidate can't just erase his earlier statements so easily.

The Ryan budget (and Romney's support for it) is an area we need to focus on particularly. Republicans have this weird idea that Ryan is some sort of rock-star politician with universal appeal, but when people hear what his budget plan actually does, it has about the same favorability rating as cold sores.

Let the flip flopping begin anew as Romney swings back,towards the center.

There is so much footage of Romney flip-flopping/saying the wrong thing that the Obama 2012 campaign could put out a "deluxe director's cut" DVD set!

Mittens, if elected will govern precisely as he did in MA. Especially so if the Senate Dems retain their majority.
