    I love seeing so many people be wrong.

    Honestly it seems a good move, he only got 7% so by swiftly exiting he looks pretty good and is set for another run. He got a lot of spotlight and didn't really have the massive scrutiny that dregs up dirt.
    He's a sharp guy, and not finished yet.

    Russia is not an American (citizen) ally because the American Government needs Russia to blame things on and spend money hating. Remember the Axis Of Evil speech by the second shittiest president we've ever had? And now these jackasses just won't let it go. And the Cold War was VERY profitable. We have been played for decades.

    Here's an interesting question: Who is the better President of his country, Putin or Biden? Really, not even interesting since the answer is so glaringly obvious.

    Yes. He said too many ugly things to the media, and that's just not right.

    I mean since VR has dropped out does that make Trump the republican nominee or is there more to come?

    Trump has always been the nominee. Note that all 99 counties in Iowa were won by Trump.

    Don’t forget all the money and infrastructure and industrial support and business resources that were going from the West in general and the United States in particular for all those decades. How are you “at war” with someone you actively subsidize?

    Forgot to mention, when I went out this morning to plow the road, the old snow plow truck didn't move when I put it drive and stepped on the gas. Then I realized the tires were frozen into the snow and just gave it more throttle to break it free!

    Glad the old Beast isn't electric, it's difficult enough just to keep the 12v battery charged in this weather!

    Excuse my ignorance, but is that significant? Does he not have to get the New Hampshire primary to get the nod for GOP nominee?

    I agree with this. People need to let go of their objections, look at the bigger picture. Trump is your last chance.

    Candidates with little support can afford to be candid as they have nothing to lose. Saying shocking "truths" gains them publicity as they attempt to become a shiny new object. His efforts to draft off of Trump were pathetic. He was smooth, but pathetic.

    Putin made an effort to become America's ally after 9-11, but was more or less told to go fuck himself. Clearly Russia is not "our ally" if the "our" you speak of is the United States Government. But it is undeniable that Russia would make an excellent natural ally to the American people, especially if we had the humility to pack up our bags and unravel the empire. Trump tried to go this route, and likewise, was thwarted by the American deep state.

    He decried the isolation from world developments that had been a consequence of Soviet ideology and criticized all remnants of Cold War thinking that divided the world into two camps. Accepting the legitimacy of the American-European security relationship via NATO, he denied that NATO was a threat to Russia and implied that Russia itself might one day apply for membership.18 Dramatically outlining his vision of Russia’s international relations in the aftermath of September 11, Putin depicted a world in which Russia, Europe, and the United States faced common threats from radical Islamic terror and appealed for collaborative security measures in defense of civilizational and cultural values that Europeans, Americans, and Russians held in common.

    It seems that he did indeed die. Here is what I consider to be the most informative and interesting stream he ever did:

    I'd agree that that is part of what he is going for, but let's also not pretend that we are just a fly on the wall watching that exchange. He wanted us to see it, which still makes my point.

    Also: that is a great film.

    I think I hated every character in it too though, which is odd.

    He has made his billion $$$ fortune by being the finance guy for an mRNA company with 0 products that is losing $1,000,000,000 per year.
    How is he in any way qualified for the job of president or VP or any high level position?
    Isn't that a prerequisite for federal office?

    I mean, he sounds like he's Nancy Pelosi already.
