"Trump kidnaps 3 Americans from the paradise of North Korea and drags them back to the USA"

Agreed.




NO MATTER WHAT POSITIVE DEEDS TRUMP ACCOMPLISHES, his critics, the Democratic party, will crap all over it. The only thing they support is party over country. Truly pathetic...........

Naturally. You're not surprised, are you?

That's the way we do things here in the USA. Surely you haven't forgotten Obama, Bush, Clinton......? They all went thru the same thing....but things have gotten even worse in the last 10-12-14 years with the internet and social media. This hyper-adversarial political discourse goes back to the early 1990s.

Besides, Trump promised us he would be entirely different than any other politician and any other president. He *promised* us he would be controversial. And he is. Anti-establishment. Break all the furniture. That's a large part of his winning the election. But, being wayyyyyy different doesn't usually make a person much loved.

I think it's great the the prisoners were released and I'll gladly give Trump credit. It happened on his watch...and that's the standard we go by with any POTUS. Sometimes fairly, sometimes not.

Cheers

Trump is doing exactly what the voters that got him elected wanted him to do and he will be reelected for doing what he said he would do.

I agree !

and he will be reelected for doing what he said he would do.
I'm taking a "Let's see how this all plays out" stance on that

This thread is a good example of why politics and religion are banned (discouraged) from most automotive forums.

If the predecessor does all the work and you get the credit, heck, why not?

As Jimmy Carter was fighting on the phone for getting the hostages out of Iran. Literally on his last day he was still doing that. Reagan was in office a few "weeks" and the crisis was over. Nobody thanked Carter. Reagan got all credit.

Obama got credit for getting Bin Laden, finishing that what Bush Jr. started. Credit awarded...ISIS get's credit for bombings and claiming they did it - sure, who is to say they didn't after the sucidal bomber is ripped to pieces by the bomb... Just saying

Politics doesn't belong on a car forum. It belongs in campaigns, the news, in the parliamental buildings... But not in a car forum. What would we all do if some people started asking about how long an errection should last and if a Viagra pill would maybe help keep it up a little longer

But,but,but nobody complained about the Obama in need thread so why the Trump thread, oh, I get it, Trump is not a liberal. You don't have to read or reply to this thread. I stopped reading the Obama thread a long time ago.

How did Obama have anything to do with the NK hostages getting released?

Really? Aren't politics just as big, if not a bigger a concern of yours, as you cars are? Do you think that your cars and politics are not interrelated? How many mechanical engineers do you see holding political office? From where I sit, I see very few. BUT, how many politicians are passing laws involving the design/functionality of your car? Again, from where I sit, I see quite a few. So it appears that you think the two subjects should be completely separated, even though the politicians, as unqualified at automotive matters as they are, are exerting control over your life.


To each his own, I guess.....

I agree......and along that line, due to his lame foreign policies, Obama, indirectly, probably had something to do with the hostages being taken in the first place.

Most car forums wisely view political and religious topics as divisive, and acknowledge that those subjects totally get in the way of the main reason for the car forum in the first place. Which is, a place where one can take breather from the putrid world of partisan divisions and angry discourse, and immerse ones self in important and pressing matters of synthetic vs. conventional oils and other such automotive conundrums, maintenance issues, and the universal follys of previous owners.

I have no objection to *discussing* politics. Arguing about politics and throwing bombs at "the other side" (whichever it might be) isn't the same as discussion, though.

And, *in the grand scheme of things*, we've benefited. But I'm sure we could agree on certain instances where we haven't.

even though the politicians, as unqualified at automotive matters as they are, are exerting control over your life.

Since the mid-60s we seen tons of regulation regarding automotive safety and emissions. Again, mostly good, IMO....but some some failures (and measures taken to an extreme) as well. But I don't see it as "....exerting control ...." over my life. That is, I don't feel that my life is controlled by automotive regulations. I reckon some California residents might disagree....and I don't blame them.

To each his own, I guess...…..

Naturally

Maybe. I dunno. I haven't researched the exact history and circumstances of their captures.....and I'm betting you haven't, either. But, if you're pre-disposed to reflexively blaming Obama then it wouldn't make any difference, I reckon.

In any case you should have a certain empathy towards those who reflexively blame Trump for things, right?

Good question, I think Trump deserves the credit for that one.

I have no idea how they finished up there but I'm betting it wasn't Obama's fault.
