Could Marine General James (Mad Dog) Mattis be Trump’s Secret Running Mate?


Yeah, it’s a dream of mine.

Apparently he has categorically stated that he’s NOT interested in running AGAINST Trump, but no word on if he would run WITH him. Earlier he stated that he was too “politically incorrect” to run for higher office, but Trump seems to have turned that into an advantage.

    His quotes are legendary and the enlisted and NCO ranks of the Marine Corps consider him a living God of battle, and they would know about such things.

    • Works for me.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Me too!
        Just imagining the heads on the left exploding would make it all worthwhile.
        He also “gets” the counter jihad movement.

          Now that would motivate me to dance in the streets and who knows, maybe even pass out sweets.

          As you know, I have no faith at all in Trump.

          But this guy….

          This guy could be all kinds of fun.

    no… Sec. of Defence

    Mia Love ..first black female Republican in Congress, for VP

    • jack burns

      Jim Webb

  • ontario john

    Yes, but we have a feminist as prime minister who attends gay parades. Top that!

    • mauser 98

      Sunny Ways!!

    • Alain

      Not really. We have an empty-headed puppet occupying the position of PM.

  • Clink9

    Maybe Trump should be this guy’s running mate.

  • Michael Lonie

    I’d vote Mattis for Prez, but as VP he would not make up for the Donald’s ignorance, bluster, gigantically inflated self-esteem, tendencies to retreat to Dem conventional (un)wisdom whenever he is pressed to say what actual policies he would follow to solve the nation’s problems, and his failure to realize that you can’t master a subject like, say, foreign policy in a couple of weeks. Trump will hire the best people? How will he know who they are? Trump would be putty in the hands of his advisors, especially the pro civil servants, the Sir Humphrey Applebys of the US.

      you mean like turdo la doo is?

    The best time for a brawler to have been in the White House was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.

  • jack burns

    He might be better purposed for the civil war that will come after the bogus elections.

  • You’re talkin a major Hollywood motion picture here. Followed by a regular TV series, at least during Trump’s tenure as President.

    The bravado doesn’t do it for me, Hollywood fiction. I think I’ve seen “Mad Dog” in a movie before.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      He was fired by Obama and loved by his own men, so that tells me I’ll probably like Mattis in any job he does.

      • You’re probably right (I honestly know nothing about the guy). But I think you have to admit the montage is rather cheesy — sorta like a movie poster.

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          No, that’s the actual guy.
          He’s the real deal, but wasn’t well known outside of the U.S. Marine Corps until he was fired, but Mattis has always talked that way.
          He’s really is a pretty fascinating guy, and a huge student of history if you start looking into him.
          His other nickname is “The Warrior Monk”.

          • Wow, I can’t believe he would be fired for something like that (to Clausewitz comment). Sounds like he’s the real deal. “Warrior Munk” — tough guy, but not a bad guy.

          • Btw, so what’s the verdict on Petraeus these days in your neck of the woods? I pick up snippets, but that’s about it.

            And I wish Colin Powell hadn’t defected to the Dems — there has to be more behind that story.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            They wanted Petraeus gone, and when you want someone gone, there are always ways to engineer their “goning”.
            Sure, he mishandled confidential information, but it was pretty low level stuff, and the person he shared it with, and was banging at the time, did have a secret clearance.
            It all come to light in an investigation about some crazy stalker women that was sending death threats to Petraeus’ “secret squeeze”.
            I don’t think he was horrible, or particularly good, but Obama wanted him gone and his own misconduct handed him what they wanted on a silver platter.

            Colin Powell was an affirmative action hire who was just a political hack and a snake in the grass. He’s not well regarded within most military circles.
            He’s a worthless POS that eventually outed himself as a member of the entitled black supremacy crowd.
            He’s insignificant these days unless you need a speaker at a Democrat black cause fundraiser dinner.

          • Thanks for that. Although surprising to hear that about Powell — he struck me as an intelligent guy not an affirmative action type (although he did look like a dummy in the UN with his “WMD evidence” on Saddam, which I assumed he did in an “uncle Tom” role for the Bush admin).

            Anyway, goes to show that perception can be different north/south of the 49th.

      • Clausewitz

        Yep, he answered “No” to the question asking him if he would fire on American civilians if so ordered by the government. All of those officers where immediately shit canned by the Kenyan conspirator.

    People who are both meditative and combative are very rare finds. I’d never heard of this guy before, so thanks for the posting.
