      Years ago it was a big thing to accuse a politician of flip flopping on an issue.

      If you give a totally different view of an issue with in a one week period that is flip flopping.

      If 20 years ago you had a view that changed that is being human.

      If your views change daily that is being a trump.

        And if you never had a view of your own in your entire life, that is being an Obama, while constantly lying about your views or denying them entirely makes you a Hilary.

          Yeah.... but he was "historic", wasn't he? (Gotta go with what really matters!)

              Lets see hear, nothing at all the refute the OP with so go with the standard:

              "OBAMA!"
              "Hillary!"

              That should cover it, yup....

                Hi

                Its a ploy to those who wouldn't naturally vote for him and yet another purely populist venture which would know doubt fail to pass muster if god forbid he gets into Pennsylvania Av.

                  I'd wait for the next one John....this isn't really a flop, he just said that he would consider raising it, no promises about raising it. Not really enough to say 'aha...got you.'

                  Rest assured, I have no doubt that his major flop will be the wall & immigration......from there on it will be a quick game of Dominos.

                    Flip flops mean nothing to the people that are supporting their (guy/gal) anymore. Our country is so divided politically all that matters is that your (guy/gal) wins at any cost. The more shameless the candidate is the more fervent support they receive. Sick country we are.

                      Something to think about;

                      Even if the minimum wage was $15 an hour what benefit would it be for the country?

                      Our welfare system is what needs reformed.

                      Why would someone on welfare to a pay cut to $15 dollars an hour?

                      Tanner and Hughes award the national welfare championship to Hawaii, which offers $60,590 in annual welfare benefits, once you account for the fact that welfare benefits are tax-free to the recipient, compared to work-related wages. That’s the equivalent of $29.13 an hour. Rounding out the top five were D.C. ($50,820 per year and $24.43 an hour), Massachusetts ($50,540 and $24.30), Connecticut ($44,370 and $21.33), and New York ($43,700 and $21.01).

                        The liberal dem in him already starting to come out, good job Republicans.

                        The only thing that would happen if minimum wage is raised is the cost of services and goods will go up. You'll speed inflation and negate the gain in salary.

                          I'm really curious to see who will claim responsibility for Trump's failure if he is elected. Will republicans take responsibility for electing a liberal who would fail a basic civics class? Or, would they try to pass him off to dems being that again, he is liberal at heart.

                          It is interesting how if Obama talks about minimum wage he's a crazy socialist. Trump talks about it, no big deal. Party politics gets us no where.

                            IMO the only thing that is important is that our country is Fd regardless of which of the two are elected. Consider this statement and who it is coming from. I would rather vote for GW again than for one of these two and I dislike GW to the nth degree.

                              I have no doubts about this as well, he supposedly even said so in an interview with the NYT editorial board which is why he is fighting so hard to prevent the transcripts from being released. He basically told them that his tough on immigration stance is basically just a ploy to dupe the rubes into voting for him.

                              http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2016...t-immigration/
                              Sources told BuzzFeed that the transcript of the audio tape had reached “mythical status at the Times” and contained a comment where Trump said something about the flexibility of his immigration stance.
                              It's amazing how so many people are falling for this con. It's going to be so funny when the mask comes off
