“My opposition to Donald Trump was wrong,” said Dennis Prager, describing Donald Trump as a “great president” whose political successes are connected to a disregard for the left-wing and partisan Democrat news media narratives.Prager’s comments came during Thursday’s episode of his eponymous radio show. While Prager has said that Trump was his last choice during the Republican primaries, he supported him vigorously in the general election against Hillary Clinton.“The only way to govern [while advancing] the principles of conservatism,” said Prager, was to disregard left-wing and partisan Democrat agitation pushed across the news media landscape. Prager said: I was wrong. My opposition to Donald Trump was wrong, in retrospect. I was wrong. I had friends who supported him, and I didn’t understand them. I said, “Are you not aware of what he said about John McCain? Isn’t that enough to disqualify the guy?” They perceived in him what I did not perceive in him, that these over-the-top statements – as objectionable as the statements themselves may be, and none of them defended the statements – nevertheless, what they perceived was accurate: a man who doesn’t give a damn about what the press says about him. That is the only way to govern. It is the only way to advance the principles of conservatism in the United States is to not give a damn.“[Donald Trump] is so much better a president than Mitt Romney would’ve made,” said Prager, describing Romney as “tepid” and concerned with appealing to news media outlets such as The New York Times.A president’s actions are a more important metric of presidential success than a president’s demeanor, said Prager: Would I like Donald Trump to have Mitt Romney’s temperament, or for that matter Barack Obama’s temperament? Yeah. So what? I would like a whole host of things. People are packages. What a president does is more important to me than a president’s demeanor. He is so much better a president than Mitt Romney would’ve made. Mitt Romney would’ve awakened every day to read The New York Times editorial page to see how he’s covered. Mitt Romney gave us Romneycare in Massachusetts. I campaigned for Mitt Romney, he would’ve been a better president [than Barack Obama]. Any Republican is better than any Democrat, that’s just the way it is. Having said that, Romney would’ve been a tepid president. Nothing comparably conservative compared to Donald Trump.Concerns with a president’s demeanor should be secondary to broader analyses of a president’s impact, said Prager.“He has turned out to be a great president with big communication flaws, in the way he tweets and some of the things he says and his temperament,” said Prager. “My temperament is the opposite. I love dignity. I love understatement. Okay, so be it. So what? I’m not sure I’d be as good a president as he. How do you like that? That’s how good he’s been.”

traditional values became traditional exactly because they helped us survive into the next generation.
is a modern invention.
I’m just gonna propose a possibility.
I will note that Patrick has evolved politically partially as a result of the unreasonableness of the left.
feminism, homosexuality, Islam, relentless division by race, promotion of grievance studies, open borders.
THe massive decrease in world standing, royally messed up institutions, extreme political polarization (far more than with Obama), and racial tensions, were all just icing on the cake for the Trumpeters.
And Leftists have messed up our institutions of higher learning to a degree where they may not recover without a massive purge of perhaps 75% of all faculty and administration
And Leftists have messed up our institutions of higher learning to a degree where they may not recover without a massive purge of perhaps 75% of all faculty and administration. Certainly all the “studies” courses need to be scrapped as they are just causing division and teaching people that they are victims for life which is no service to anyone.
worldview isn't taught other than a racist, sexist, etc. caricature.
The idea that homosexuality is somehow innate and exclusive is a modern invention.
Caricature like the stupid Green Frog that is chasing Hillary ?
Eliminate the intellectuals and anyone capable or willing to have intelligent thought and not willing to blindly follow the leadership.

The Democrats are so self righteous and ANGRY! Loosen up and have some fun. The Country is doing well!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 11, 2019

There’s no thought on the Left, just mindless spewing of the doctrine spouted by their leadership.
People like you just blindly believe in the Leftist dogma
NEVER TRUST ANYONE 100% EVER, FOR ANYTHING FOR ANY REASON
Quigley saysThere’s no thought on the Left, just mindless spewing of the doctrine spouted by their leadership. Obviously not bothered to check the contents of the forum now.
Check the posters, the sources - "say from the last 3 months of 2018 and January up to about the 15th or so".Moi did not come back here until after the 15th of January.
As for those lovely messages you are trying to send to me from here - the mailbox you are trying to send to has been configured to automatically send everything to the trash that originates from here so I never see them unless I read the posting on line.
Yep, no doubt there is definitely a pattern the last few months. Thanks for pointing it out!
