   Gram77  I try to be open minded and not judge too harshly even though I am getting older and more impatient. However, why does President Elect Trump spend so much time on Twitter?

   Fireball27  Because he wants to be exactly the opposite of George W. Bush. Mr. Bush let the left and media get away with lying about him, and never did anything about it. Mr. Trump is not going to allow them to do it to him. I for one will try in any way to help Mr. Trump accomplish this. I was railing against Mr. Bush for not speaking up. The media just kept lying and lying. Ask any liberal, they know so much that is not true. But to them it is fact. Fact because the media said it, and no one called them on it. Just look at the "Mission Accomplished" banner on the ship. Liberals claimed Mr. Bush declared our fighting in Iraq done and over. The banner however was a banner for the crew as they had completed their tour and were headed home. Even after it was pointed out as such, the media kept up with the, Bush declared Mission Accomplished story. This is also what Mr. Trump meant when he was talking about going after the media for the stories they publish, after they know the truth, have been advised of the truth, and then keep publishing the false story as if it were the truth. Media malpractice.

   StormCnter  Respectfully, I differ with Fireball27's take. Mr. Trump's Twitter obsession has nothing to do with George W Bush. Trump enjoys the ability to tweet his thoughts and opinions and there's nothing wrong with that. I would like to see him be a little more discreet, however. Maybe that will come with the pressures of running the country.

   GO3  I for one, do agree with Fireball's take. It's not only defending your position, it's going directly to the people and bypassing the media, which was Trump's enemy just as much as Hillary. Reagan did TV and radio; Trump does Tweets ( I personally don't use Fakebook or Twitter ) because he can get his views out to every single account holder without having to use CNN. I can't think of a more effective way to counter loony celeb Tweets than by using the technology to your advantage. It's not an obsession, it's a damn good tactic.

   GO3  Thank you.

   Pete Stone  Now that Mr. Trump is going to be President (No matter what Mizz Stein causes in the Wisconsin and Michigan recounts, he has the electoral votes. ), it's time he started acting more presidential. That includes putting his brain in gear before he tweets. Or, better yet, he should quit tweeting. Twitter is for lamebrains anyway.

   Namma  Problem is that reading a text and hearing someone speak can be totally different while saying the same thing. I don't mind Trump tweeting. it is a way for him to by pass the press. Like hussien bypasses congress. But he should very careful his tweets are not taken the wrong way. Not an easy thing to do

   Fireball27  Pete Stone, don't you see what I am trying to point out? Mr. Bush acted "Presidential". I don't want that! Most people I know, don't want that. You have to break some eggs to make an omelette. The media will still twist whatever Mr. Trump says, but he can get the truth out right away by tweeting. I don't have a Twitter account but I am very glad Mr. Trump does. He is giving the media fits! They would be controlling everything he says if he weren't able to correct them and show just how corrupt they are.

Remember the Fast and Furious gun running? Ask people if they know about it. Even staunch conservatives don't know what happened. Ask about Brian Terry. The media keeps those stories as quiet as they can, but they can't anymore. We can't allow this to continue. Look what it has done to our country. I say Tweet and Facebook and post on your favorite web site, but make sure we are heard. If Mr. Trump or someone with some guts would have Tweeted about the Michael Brown shooting in Mo. perhaps the BLM movement wouldn't have grown to what it is. It's Hammer Time!!! Hey media, we are coming for you!

   GO3  Politics is a contact sport. The dems understand this and the pubs historically haven't. We have to lower our Miss Manners pinkie and get into the fight if we want to succeed. Trump wouldn't be where he is business-wise if he took things thrown at him in a "dignified" manner, and he sure wouldn't be headed to the WH against the likes of Hillary and the Clinton machine.

   Suejeanne  Saw on the Drudge Report that Google Maps has "Trump Tower" as "Dump Tower" - so, went on Google Maps and entered the correction (if you have not done that before, find the location you want to correct on the map, click it and then enter the name/location ("Trump Tower" ) then down below, indicate what the mistake was ("Dump Tower" ). If anyone else would like to do that as well, go to Google Maps for Midtown Manhattan - Trump Tower is on 5th between 56th and 57th Streets )

   Alice  There is evidence from mediums that there is a review of one's life after physical death, and the review includes experiencing the effects of one's actions during life on others. If so, Fidel Castro has a long time to spend suffering before he is greeted at the entrance to the fiery pits.

   Lonestar Jack  I just was reading where some GOP'ers want Romney to apologize to Trump for the disparaging things he said during the debates. I ask -- why would any sincere respectable man have to be told/asked to apologize for his actions?
To me it wouldn't be heartfelt. Something like say anything to get the Secy of State job.
Trump does not need this type of snake on his team.

   GO3  I agree. For what Romney did I would let him apologize, then later in the day I'd name someone else as SoS. If Romney's apology was sincere, he's be magnanimous about the appointment and not whine about it.

   Gram77  Just some silliness this morning. We had a low in the Bradenton FL area of 48 and it seems that this is news. Apparently there is still some north left in me because I am loving it. And another plus is that even with a low the sun is as bright as ever! Every one have a good day!

   StormCnter  Gram, in our early married days, we lived three years in Southern California. The weather, of course, was glorious. However, Texas-born as we were, we became really homesick for a change in the weather; a blue norther would have been welcome. So I understand why you are enjoying your lower temperatures.

   Tulsa  FYI. Two Trump specials on Fox. One is 'Objectified' by TMZ's Levin (s ) with Trump explaining objects, ie., trophies, letters and well objects and how he obtained them. That was on last night. (Fri. ) If you have DirecTV, there is 72 hr rewind. I'm certain it's available to line or will be at Fox News again.

The 2nd special is with Bret Baier and is to be shown Sun. at 9 or 10 p. on Fox News. ...something like 'How Trump won the Presidency.'. Sorry I'm not more accurate. I was fast forwarding thru a commercial on a recorded show...spotted the special and rewound to obtain the info and have it set to record Sun.

   MeiDei  Saw the TMZ special. It was previewed before the election by HRC and DJT - both agreed it shouldn't be aired prior to voting - can see why she would object, not sure why he agreed.

   Tulsa  I watched it tonight. I thought it was well done. I first heard about it Fri. on Special Report with Bret B. He announced it would be on and I recorded it.

Didn't know it was previewed before the election, but could tell it was filmed during the campaign. I'm with you Mei, it was flattering to Trump.

   Richdet  Let's clarify. Harvey Levin invited both Hillary and Trump back in September to do an "Objectified" interview with him, based on the concept that one learns a lot about a person by simply discussing the things he/she displays at home, such as photographs. Trump agreed to do it, Hillary (no surprise there ) wanted no part of it. Since Hillary wouldn't cooperate (again, no surprise ), Levin and Fox decided not to air the piece until after the election. Trump won, so that worked out nicely all around, and the special has been shown two or three times this weekend.

I thought Trump came off very well, as did Levin, and I would watch any "Objectified" special conducted by Levin. Interesting concept.

   MeiDei  Thanks for the clarification, the [ene]media report I read was obviously someone's talking points, picked up and carried. Trump's candor (and demeanor ) was refreshing.
