    They are not journalists. People also, quite often confuse a media outlets reporting of the news with its editorial position. They are not the same. Going back to this thread, Habberman of the NYT was dissed. Show me an example where her reporting has been shown to be false or even innaccurate.

    I have not defended Trump at every opportunity. I have spoken up a few times on the policies that I disagree with, the most recent being raising the age to buy long arms to 21. Things like the steel tarrifs, where I don't like it, but know very little about economics, I leave it to those who do to debate and just sit back, watch and learn.

    Maybe your thinking that I defend him at every turn is really an indication of just how ridiculous the claims from your side have been and continue to be? I do like to call out BS...

    The most partisan of us all are the ones that complain the loudest that everyone else is.
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    GROUCHO MARX,

    Gee, which on do you think is more likely to have lied?

    I mean just based on past history and record of honesty.

    Can you be honest about it?

    No named source. The usual Crepitus fake crap.

Woodward himself thinks the media is going with too much story and no proof. He and Bernstein always had to have two named sources before printing a story. Too bad you kids didn't pay attention.

    He is supposed to follow through on his promises to those who voted for him.

    I'm a Trump supporter and I'm not embarrassed at all. You, on the other hand,have embarrassments coming from everything you say.

    There once was a time when that was true. Not so much any more.

    I like much of what Trump is doing. I just wish that he would keep many of his comments in his head instead of basically thinking out loud so often. He has made some comments which no consistent conservative type can support.

    President Donald Trump is echoing my thoughts and he is actually doing what I want him to do. He speaks for me. You don't know what to do until someone on PBS tells you how you should "feel"

    BTW, do you think it makes you more credible and wise if you misspell the Presidents name? Do two wrongs make a right or are you just as lower class as those that called Former President Barrack Hussein Obama names?

    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.
