This doesn't make sense.
He either didn't know OSU had one or OU said yes quickly.
I do recall now one conversation about the difference between a D.O. and

I now remember vaguely a conversation about the difference between a D.O. and M.D. He chose the latter.

Should we be on the lookout for a Presidential meltdown? When you consider the fragile mental condition of our President, do the current and upcoming conditions signal a meltdown in the making? Consider this:
1. Despite his denial, he suffered a significant defeat at the polls in the mid-term elections. He lost the House and faces huge defeats in the 2020 congressional elections, given the makeup of the election map. Look it up.
2. Having lost the House this year, he is facing an onslaught of indictments, regardless of how much validity one places on those attacks.
3. His White House is in crisis. His wife just got a member of his inner circle fired and others are rumored to follow .
4. Next (and possibly most important) the election season is over, removing the opportunity to conduct his ego-stroking rallies, which are obviously a requirement to preserve his fragile self-image.
5. And finally...was the no-show in France to the single most important event he went to attend a pre-cursor for what we should expect from him in the future ?


It's going to me an interesting 2 years, to say the least.
I love how you give an intelligent, nuanced assessment of the current situation...and the only responses are "HUR HUR THIS POST IS MELTDOWN" and "TROLL HARDER DUUURRRRRR".

The sole fact that this motherf----- got rid of Jeff Sessions (let's be realistic, he was fired), and installed a loyalist toadie who is already on record saying Robert Mueller has gone too far in the Russia investigation, is enough. He knows his son is probably going to be indicted. Roger Stone (and one of his conspiracy theory-peddling idiot accomplices) will be indicted. It's like you said, it's going to be interesting and people should buckle up.

And given Trump has no respect for the Constitution or executive precedent, he isn't going to leave office quietly when he loses in 2020. I'm willing to bet money on that. He'll say the elections were "rigged" or some other dog-whistle call to his mouthbreathing base who is just thirsty for a reason to start a civil war.

People have been predicting a Trump meltdown for 3.5 years. It’s not going to happen. Just because you are in constant meltdown mode over an election loss that is over 2 years old now doesn’t mean Trump is on the verge of being like you. He is wired very different from most people. Trump is your typical head of a conglomerate billionaire. He throws little tantrums to get the frustration of not getting his way out of his system and moves on to the next thing. Guys like him don’t let it build up and then completely lose it. It’s just not how they’re wired. They have thin skin but oddly can bounce back really quickly from disappointment. It’s part of being a narcissist.

The mid-terms were a very mild loss compared to what happens in modern history and keeping the senate is something he can hang his hat on. I honestly think in his mind he came out a winner and all that matters to guys like him is what he thinks. I realize the unhinged left badly wants Trump to mope around feel like a loser but he will never do that. He will always be convinced he won. And to those saying Trump will declare himself dictator and declare martial law, you are 1000x the whack job that you think Trump is. That’s like the far right whack jobs that said Obama was going to find a way to get a third term and beyond. Please join the rest of us in reality.
- Over 330 state government seats flipped to blue
- 7 governor's seats flipped
- Potentially 36ish House seats flipped (some races are still being decided)
- Senate will probably remain unchanged, depending on the Florida recount
- Trump's policies were *hammered* in the Midwest
- Medicaid expansion voted for in those VERY BLUE STATES of Idaho, Nebraska, and Utah
- Felons having voting rights restored in Florida
- Marijuana made legal in Michigan

I don't really think you understand how badly Trump and Republicans lost.

Also, please keep calling us the "unhinged left". It's comedic, to say the least.

FDR single-handedly, more or less, brought the country back from the deepest place it could go, economically. Cut the crap. And it's because of him that you get a social security check, old fart.
actually, no... that is not true.

so learn your damned history if you intend to post on the this board.

Frankly, I would prefer NOT to have "that social security check", and have privatized retirement... and FDR amended the widow's and orphans fund. FDR wanted social insurance, which was created in socialist Germany by Otto Bismark.

everything that FDR did PROLONGED the depression... it did not help. Only the war brou,ght us back, but FDR did have a big hand in making sure that we got dragged into that.... then he "interned" US citizens, ILLEGALLY.

He also tried to "pack" the supreme court to pull and end around on constitutional rule.

I certainly do not need a lecture from the like of you on history - but apparently you could use a healthy refresher.

Socialist UnSecurity is not a good program.... it is a ponzi scheme. A lie. Bait and switch.

LMAO, there you go with the Republican buzzwords. It's that way ONLY BECAUSE THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO WANT IT TO DIE. And trust me, if you were destitute, oh, you'd want your check.

And you don't think the New Deal programs (TVA for example) didn't help to get us out of the recession? Don't be a disingenuous boob.
