This is not the President you thought...

Trump just reached a deal with Congress to pass his first major piece of legislation. Specifically, he reached a deal with Democrats, against the wishes of the leadership of his own party!
Trump has been signaling since the beginning that he is willing to work with Democrats to craft legislation that will benefit Americans. This is just the first time the Congressional Democrats pulled their heads out of their donkeys long enough to see what has been obvious all along. They have, if not a friend, then at least a possible co-conspirator in the White House, who is eager to sign bills the moderate middle wants anyway.

I said this from the beginning! Trump's biggest obstacles are going to come from his own party and the entrenched globalist oligarchy.

All of you liberals who've been giving hand-wringing Jeremiads about how the Trump Presidency was going to usher in the end of America have got it all wrong. There has never been a more amenable POTUS to passing liberal bills which benefit the common people.

This is how we MAGA.

Have you seen his tax plan? There is nothing liberal or beneficial to the common man in it.

Trump didn't negotiate jack shit.

Donald Trump en total agreed to everything the Democrats wanted. The Republicans are literally saying there's nothing for them in this deal.

Do you have any idea how asinine it is for you right wing lunatics to rip on Obama and liberal policies for 8 years and then praise Trump when he rubber stamps them???

Tell me again how much you love Nancy Pelosi's budget and how glad you are that Trump is endorsing it?

I just want you to type the whole thing out. See if you can do it.

He has been pushing turtleneck Mcconnel to remove the 60 filibuster rule. Mcconnel is stubbornly refusing and saying that not doing anything is democracy in action. trump gave him a giant FU-if repubs don't do anything, midterms will be bad. This is how you negotiate-deal with what is given and play chess and see where it falls.

I mean even low level office politicians know this. but carry on-it is becoming comical.

He's the president America deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he's not our president. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight.

Debt ceiling? "What can't continue won't continue."

Fucking idiots all!

Well....Climate shifts aren’t limited to the weather.

We are in the middle of not one but three climate changes at once to which government must help citizens respond — and Donald Trump doesn’t have a clue and China does.

We are in the middle of a change in the climate of the climate. We are going from “later” to “now.” Later is officially over. Later will be too late. At some point, the deforestation of the Amazon is not reversible.

We are the middle of a change in the “climate” of globalization. We are going from an interconnected world to an interdependent one, and in such a world your friends can hurt you faster than your enemies: Think what happens if Mexico’s economy fails. And your rivals’ falling becomes more dangerous than your rivals’ rising: We will be hurt a lot more by China’s economy tanking than by its putting tanks on islands in the South China Sea.

And lastly, we’re in the middle of a change in the “climate” of technology. We’re moving into a world where machines and software can analyze (see patterns that were hidden before); optimize (tell a plane which altitude to fly each mile to get the best fuel efficiency); prophesize (tell you when your elevator will break and fix it before it does); customize (tailor any product or service for you alone) and digitize and automate just about any job. This is transforming every industry.

Governing today is all about how you prepare your society to get the most out of these three climate changes and cushion the worst. Sadly, that’s not our society’s priority right now. In the age of Trump, we are treating governing as entertainment.

China takes governing seriously.

They have formulated a strategy — “Made in China 2025.” It’s a plan for building the infrastructure, investments, education and regulations that will enable Chinese companies to lead in supercomputing, new materials, computer-controlled machine tools, industrial robotics, space and aviation equipment — including drones — clean cars, clean energy, biomedicine and next-gen medical devices.

Only time will tell how much what China has wrong about governing will undermine what it has right.

By contrast, Trump hasn’t even named a science adviser. He pulled out of the Paris climate accord, and he proposed a budget for fiscal 2018 that eliminated the Department of Energy’s innovation lab and slashed funding for all of our key national science and medical labs, which provide the basic research for the very next-gen technologies in which China is now massively investing.

He’s spending the money on a wall. Is there anything more stupid?

And then you watch the health care debate.

And then you look at all the knife fights between Trump aides and you realize that none was over how to thrive in a world challenged by these three climate changes. They were all about who could get closest to and flatter our Dear Leader most. But our Dear Leader — as we saw in the health care debate — has done no homework on the future, either. He’s been too busy promising to restore the past.

This is so dangerous. When the pace of change accelerates in climate, technology and globalization all at once, small errors in leadership navigation can have huge consequences. It’s like a 747 pilot who enters the wrong coordinates. You can find yourself so far off course that the pain of getting back will be staggering.

We have such a pilot. It is time for the adult Republicans and Democrats in Congress to come together and take the helm.

Extending the debt ceiling for 3 months and a storm aid package is a major piece of legislation? Are you kidding me? It's a very minor piece of legislation that under any other president would have been a nothingburger.

You do know that presidents don't pass bills? Congress passes bills. Presidents can only approve bills by signing them or disapprove bills by vetoing them. There aren't going to be any liberal bills passed by this congress for trump to be amenable to approving even if that remote possibility existed. So this statement is utterly meaningless.

Since actions speak louder than words do you want to comment on how amenable to liberals to benefit the common people the executive orders and cabinet actions so far have been? I didn't think so.

I can't believe no one has called this out yet. It has to be one of the most out there thing's I've read on this board in a week (I have 10pdbass on ignore). Trump spent the first 8 months trying to encourage Rs to band together and ram partisan legislation through. His reach out to Shumer/Pelosi is probably an F U to Rs as much as it was a signal of more to come. He's still trying to threaten Republicans into action. The whip is his best friend, but with his ever shrinking popularity, his whip is getting as impotent as his 70 yr old schlong.

I agree completely. This counts as a win lately, because of the complete absence of winning these days. But you cannot call it a major win. Kicking the debt ceiling fiasco down the road 3 months is definitely the very least of what is expected. Harvey relief at some level is expected. Legislatively, it's an easy win for three reasons: (1) because with Irma bearing down, another swath of the country is in need (2) the typical opponents (e.g. Cruz-cakes) and their people are the ones effected (3) Rs are in power, so they can't each try to vote against D spending without actually stopping it.

Too funny that the lead on harvey relief package is cruz who voted down sandy relief and his followers applaud it.
