You don’t need to be 6’3″ tall and weigh 250 lbs. to be President of the United States. Being big, strong and physically fit like Arnold can have an intimidating advantage, but it certainly isn’t a qualifying requirement. Other characteristics are more vital, like brains, ability to think logically, sincerity, knowledgeable of domestic and world matters go along way. HOWEVER!
Does appearance matter, yes even size? Last evening while occasionally dropping in on the Democratic debate, one thing stood out to me. Elizabeth Warren with her tiny physic despite her speaking and debating experience looks meek compared to all the others. While Warren may have fared better than the rest on stage with the tongue, her ability to speak may be her greatest asset. Lots of people can speak, ramble on for hours but have little to no substance. Even I can speak (and write) and say absolutely nothing. Elizabeth comes out with a new policy nearly everyday, makes it brief but as most candidates NEVER SAY HOW!
Backing off from interruptions and multiple people speaking at once comes from being an experienced well trained debater. Let the other people shoot themselves in the foot. When it comes down to one-on-one, it will be more difficult even for Warren. Eventually, she’ll need more substance……some substance.
On the big stage, an international stage…… will meekness matter? While Warren may not be meek vocally, that physical appearance (tiny and meek) may be taken advantage of by others. We will see if her own co-candidates learn to take advantage. It appeared she came on strong but then faded (gee I actually agree with something from MSNBC) when others on stage got louder.
This was my impression of Warren, okay she can talk……..but wow she looks small, very, very small. Does size matter?
It doesn’t matter what Trump says, the MSM call him a racist for it. He said he was a Nationalist not a White Nationalist, and there is a huge difference. Even the media, knows that or they are dumber than I thought.
nationalism. noun. Devotion, especially excessive or undiscriminating devotion, to the interests or culture of a particular nation-state. The belief that nations will benefit from acting independently rather than collectively, emphasizing national rather than international goals.
Nationalist. a person who advocates political independence for a country. And the liberal media (CNN, MSNBC) believe there is something wrong with that. Obvious GLOBALISTS!
White nationalism is a type of nationalism or pan-nationalism which espouses the belief that white people are a race and seeks to develop and maintain a white national identity. Its proponents identify with and are attached to the concept of a white nation. Wikipedia
CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta asked Trump what he meant by calling himself a Nationalist, if he meant “White Nationalist”, that they wanted an explanation for Nationalist. He, Trump, never said White Nationalist. He said NATIONALIST! Jim, I have a difficult time believing a WH correspondent doesn’t know the definition of Nationalist. I get it Jim, you are just trying to get Trump to stumble. Keep trying Jim. The more you try the dumber you look.
If Trump had said he was a White Nationalist or Nazi Nationalist or Black Nationalist, then yes he’d be a racist. Nationalist = putting your country FIRST!
I went over a week without watching or listening to the news, local and national. These news medias and that includes Fox, aren’t about reporting as much as commentating. I know they have their multiple hour long programs like Hannity and the CNN, MSNBC crap, I only seldom listen to for comic relief. But, you come back after a leave, and we are listening to the same stuff! Mostly Trump bashing and trashing, as the MSM’s agenda is to remove Trump from office. But, I am not lost on the fact that Fox is defending the Trump administration night after night, with the same logic, evidence or just plain old opinion.
After over a year of this (closer to two years) who needs this? Even the chemical attacks (alleged) are repeat stories. I understand new, current attacks allegedly! We don’t have to watch night after night to know what is on the nightly agendas. They all have the same arguments as well. Nothing new in the news!
