    Zero story here. Trump's a businessman, starting businesses. Some businesses make it, some don't. Unlike all of Obama's failures giving deals to cronies in the green sector, most green businesses of whom flatlined on the public's dime.

    As usual, failing to address the accusations.

    The try and fail to deflect to Obama because...whatever the latest gibberish is.

    You Trumpettes really are a sad and pathetic bunch. I hope you're able to find a "safe space" in November to lick your collective wounds and try to come to terms with a female president.

    Once again you fail to comprehend and resort to the mumble, mumble...but Obama...mumble.

    It is really tiresome and pathetic.

    This thread is about supposed business genius Trump buying a company that he KNEW was a pyramid scheme, slapping his name on it and continuing to sell it as a pyramid scheme.

    Do you have anything to say or is it Trumprtte business as usual. If so, just don't bother wasting your or my (probably others as well) time.

    If you want to discuss Obama's support of green energy, then start your own thread.

    If you'd like to act like an adult and address the issues raised here without trying to deflect, then that would be a very welcome change. Somehow I doubt you're able to put your blinkers down and do so.

    I think it quite significant that that article cited in the OP was from National Review, which describes itself as:

    As noted previously, this is not an election choice between liberal and conservative; between Republican and Democrat. This is an election choice between truth and lies. Between decency and outright fraud. Between good and evil.

    People of goodwill can disagree on any number of issues: taxes; spending; gun rights; the environment. But I think we can all agree we simply cannot hand the running of the Executive Branch of our Government over to somebody like Donald Trump.

    I understand the inconvenient comparison that you wish to shoo away.

    Yet again you prove my point for me, it's like shooting fish in a barrel.

    You're simply not able to argue a point with out deception, deflection or out right lies.

    Thank you for highlighting my point better than I ever could have.

    Please let us know when you decide to act like a grown up, I for one will be eagerly awaiting it if it ever happens.

    Indeed, the only reason to be against Hillary Clinton is sexism.

    Much like the only reason to be against Barack Obama is racism.

    Same as the only reason to be against Islam is bigotry.

    Donald lacks the street cred of his opponent. Trumps failure to leave behind a trail of bodies, a litany of devastated family's of the deceased, makes him look rather inexperienced.

    Well I think Hillary lacks charisma and charm. She's more of a policy wonk candidate -- like Gore was. That being said, you can't hand they keys of the executive branch to someone totally unqualified like Trump. So, by default, Hillary it is.

    Most successful business people fail, we can't all live out our lives on the public dole like HRC.

    It's not a comparison at all.

    Obama did not personally have anything to do with these companies. The companies likely applied for an available grant and received it, much like thousands of companies receive taxpayer grants every year.

    Trump, on the other hand, started or managed most of his businesses, and many of them failed, thus showing that he, himself, is a failure in many ways.

    If they fail, how are they successful?

    Oh, just you wait...there will be some sort of word-vomit response about how this is just liberal propaganda from the super-biased NPR.

    true

    Now look up how much more in deal$ go to Big Oil, which is by no means struggling, and how many more dime$ they get by comparison. If you loathe welfare going to tiny solar then you must be far more enraged over big oil, yes?

    In fact, we'll help start the searching for ya:

    So you're openly admitting you hate stupid people? That dumb people shouldn't be allowed to be president? How progressive of you!

    ...am I doing this right?

    He's not dumb. Trump lacks the emotional intelligence and stability necessary to be President.

    Honestly, I think Trump is far from stupid. If I had to sum up his demeanor as of late in a neat little package, I'd say he's acting like someone who's had his way on just about everything his entire life, has suddenly found himself in a situation where he's on the lower end of the totem pole, and isn't handling the experience with much grace or poise.
