    I think it's partly that. I think it's also because Trump has this irrational desire to be at the center of everything just to put his name on it.

    If they repealed Obamacare tomorrow and passed the exact same legislation with Trump's name on it, Trump would be out there proclaiming that it is the "best healthcare plan ever." Substance doesn't matter with Trump; it's all about appearance. And given the large swaths of American public that cannot critically think for themselves, those swaths gobble it up without ever thinking for themselves.

    I think it had a lot to do with the public roasting Obama gave him at the correspondent's dinner.

    Trump is all ego. Tearing up a bad plan or a plan that has any short comings is a no lose endeavor. No matter what anybody says his rebuttal is always ”That was a bad plan.”

    This is why he has not presented any plans of his own. If he does people will point out the shortcomings and he will look bad.

    Individual One claims to be the ultimate boss and deal-maker, but shows an awful lot of deference.

    So here we are in Baghdad... What, almost two decades from when we first entered the country and initiated the war. This is our embassy being swarmed by Iraqi’s (supposedly supported by Iran), who are pissed off because of our Sunday attack which killed 25 or so. It just never ends...

    That's huge.

    The Iranians will retaliate. This could get ugly quick. I wouldn't be surprised if the militias tried to storm the US Embassy again, soon. Nor would I be surprised if a few missiles or suicide boats were launched against the 5th Fleet.

    If we did this.

    It could get much worse than that.

    Can’t wait for the “support the President” orders from the right.

    The most frustrating thing is that we had the Iranians contained, and then President Orange Blob blew it all up because it didn't have his name on it.

    Honestly, he's a three year old who's going to get a lot of people killed.

    Who's running CENTCOM now a days?

    Gen. McKenzie, USMC; former J-5 to the JCS. So at least we have the right guy running the area.

    I wonder if anyone will take credit. It can only be a handful of actors, and the US is at the top of this list.

    US
    Israel
    Saudi Arabia.

    Anyone else?

    Looks like one more horrid thing that can be laid in the laps of the people who thought voting for Trump was a good idea.
