    When you're a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

    Aggression is the only form of strength that Trump understands, so it's understandable that he feels this way. Putin shows aggression, and has historically won what he's wanted. The rest of the world seeks non-violent deterrence strategies - and Trump equates that immediately with inaction because it isn't pure aggression. 

    Part of me wonders if this is still a long game, where Putin tries to negotiate that Ukraine will not seek membership to NATO if their forces withdraw. Withdrawal happens, the world forgets, then, wait a few more years, and invade without having that worry on his mind. 

    Does anyone who knows better know if this a possibility?

    Well, it would have been over already anyway when he sent American troops in to help the Russians.

    I watched that speech last night...I mean he's riding the lightning, but his timing is WAY off, his energy is low, and 3/4 of the crowd has him tuned the fuck OUT.

    He thinks he's a rock star.  Sad, really.

    Barr calls prospect of Trump running for president again ‘dismaying,’ says GOP should ‘look forward’ to others  https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/2022/02/27/barr-trump-2024/ 

    Barr calls prospect of Trump running for president again ‘dismaying,’ says GOP should ‘look forward’ to others By Matt Zapotosky and Josh Dawsey February 27 at 11:53 AM EST Former attorney general William P. Barr says in a new book that the prospect of Donald Trump running for president again is “dismaying” and urges the Republican Party to “look forward” to other candidates, concluding after a searing, behind-the-scenes account of his time in the president’s Cabinet that Trump is not the right man to lead the country. In the book, “One Damn Thing After Another,” Barr takes shot after shot at Trump, especially over his leadership during the coronavirus pandemic and his false claims that the election was stolen from him. Barr, who had a famous falling-out with Trump late in his presidency, writes that Trump’s “constant bellicosity diminishes him and the office,” and that in the final months of the administration, he came to realize that “Trump cared only about one thing: himself. Country and principle took second place.” “We need leaders not only capable of fighting and ‘punching,’ but also persuading and attracting — leaders who can frame, and advocate for, an uplifting vision of what it means to share in American citizenship,” Barr writes. “Donald Trump has shown he has neither the temperament nor persuasive powers to provide the kind of positive leadership that is needed.” Barr styles the book, to be published March 8, as a memoir of his life. He recounts events as far back as his childhood on the Upper West Side of New York City. He launches blistering attacks on liberals and the news media — whom he views even more dimly than the former president — while outlining his conservative views on crime, religion, gender and sexuality. He also defends his handling of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report, and details how the Justice Department navigated allegations that Trump had committed a crime in pressuring Ukraine’s president to investigate Joe Biden.

    that election saw a huge increase in voters period.
    its less a problem so many voted that way as voter apathy in general to begin with. still some 70-80 million that didnt vote who were eligible.

    It only occurred to him during the last few months that he was like that?  Anyone with any sense of awareness saw it before he was even elected.

    NACO, Arizona — Mexican smuggling gangs have sawed through new segments of border wall 3,272 times over the past three years, according to unpublished U.S. Customs and Border Protection maintenance records obtained by The Washington Post under the Freedom of Information Act.
    The government spent $2.6 million to repair the breaches during the 2019 to 2021 fiscal years, the CBP records show. While the agency has acknowledged that smugglers are able to hack through the new barriers built by the Trump administration, the maintenance records show damage has been more widespread than previously known, pointing to the structure’s limitations as an impediment to illegal crossings.
    Smuggling gangs typically cut the barrier with inexpensive power tools widely available at retail hardware stores, including angle grinders and demolition saws. Once the 18-to-30-foot-tall bollards are severed near the ground, their only remaining point of attachment is at the top of the structure, leaving the steel beam dangling in the air. It easily swings open with a push, creating a gap wide enough for people and narcotics to pass through.
    A spokesman for CBP, Luis Miranda, said effective border security “requires a variety of resources and efforts, infrastructure, technology, and personnel.”
    “No structure is impenetrable, so we will continue to work to focus resources on modern, effective border management measures to improve safety and security,” Miranda said in a statement.
    Along one 25-mile segment of new border wall between Naco and Douglas, Ariz., The Post recently counted 71 bollards with visible repairs and welds. In most instances, crews repaired the breaches using a sleeve-like steel coupler, referred to as a “boot,” to patch over the hole.

    Meanwhile trashbag GOP reps in congress were screaming at Biden to "Build The Wall" during his SOTU because that's what resonates w/ their base. 

    Grand Ol' Party indeed.
