I was wondering what post I would make today. Honestly, I had ruled out a “Trump” post. I was thinking about doing a crop production vs global warming post. But, then, I saw this.
I don’t recall if I stated this in a post or in the comment section, but, I did state that the establishment will coalesce around Trump. How did I know this? ….. I mean other than the obvious such as embracing socialized medicine and whatnot ……
Because he’s a “negotiator”, because he’s a “deal maker”, or as Jimmy Carter stated, he’s malleable.
Look, I’m not talking trash, I’m showing what’s real. Chris Christie just endorsed Donald Trump. Jimmy Carter told the Brits that Trump would be preferable to Cruz because he’s “malleable”.
Super Tuesday is just 4 days away. Trump supporters are getting played from two different directions, but, they’re blowing the same way.
Care to know why Trump seems impervious to the press? Because they don’t hound him on the same issues. People see this as a strength of Trump. Trump, most likely, believes he has this strength. It’s a façade. It’s built by the press. Day one, after the Repub nomination, the gloves come off. Then, all of the sudden his taxes will be a big deal. Best case scenario, his will look similar to Romney’s. All of the sudden his hypocrisy about bad language will be played, over and over, again. All of the sudden, his lack of policy specifics will be a big deal. Suddenly, he’s going to have to know the names of all the tiny little countries and what they are and who they are and how it relates to our foreign policy. He’s going to have to know what the leftist Kurds call themselves and the difference between the rest of the Kurds are. Then, he’s going to have to distinguish his vision of healthcare between Hillary’s. Then, he’s going to have to explain why he outsources jobs to Mexico. Then, he’s going to have to explain why he hired illegals. …… BTW, I’m not making any of this up. …… The problem is, unlike today, he’ll have to answer these questions. No, it won’t be fair. We all know the media is a bunch of leftarded bastages. But, these are questions he’ll have to answer. The problem is, he can’t answer any of them, and a lot more ….. with the exception of the “Kurds” (with a lot of future coaching).
The fact is, Trump doesn’t know anything of any pertinence. Well, sure, I’m certain he knows real estate ….. finally. He’s against illegal immigration because …. why? I mean, specifically, what is it that Trump has stated that affirms that he knows why it is so harmful to our society? Were it me, I would hound on the security issue. It’s a huge issue and doesn’t play into the “xenophobic” meme of the left. He could even play up the 9/11 “I was there” bs and win some on that! But, I would also stress the continuous downward pressure on wages it causes. <——– That rings home to millions of Americans. But, none of this is about policy ….. yet. Later, it will be about policy, it will be about the past, it will be about vision. It won’t be being able to just call someone stupid or a liar and going home the next day. Once the nomination is over, we’ll know what Trump ate for breakfast in 1999.
Were I a Trump supporter, all of what I stated above would be fine, if I believed the amount of Trump supporters were enough to carry the election. But, they’re not even close. That said, I believe there’s a fair chance, fair…… that is to say about a 30% chance, right now, that Trump will be our next president. The Repub nomination is his to lose. I pray for a 3rd party next election.
Don’t blame me, or the people like me. I stated long ago that I could not support someone like Trump. The Repubs are going to nominate him anyway, and be mad, once again, because conservatives couldn’t be bothered to get out of bed to support someone who has no interest in supporting our ideas. He can’t even be bothered to provide lip service in the Repub nomination process, he’s damned sure not going to be bothered if he’s president.
From the polls, he’s going to win big on Tuesday. I see only Texas and New Mexico in play. Rubio is far behind in Florida, and Kasich is behind in Ohio. It could change, but, I doubt it. Because Cruz will probably win Texas, he’s going to stay in the race. The rest will stay in the race because ….. well, they can and their egos prevent them from gracefully exiting. Even if Kasich wins Ohio, he has zero chance of winning. Why is Carson still in it? He has less than zero chance of winning ….. anything. He’s the only candidate less knowledgeable on policy than Trump.
Today, with Christie supporting Trump, it’s the end for Rubio. The establishment is going with Trump. Even if Rubio were to win Florida, it’s too much to overcome. But, he’ll stay in it.
And, then, the US will get the negotiating, deal making, malleable president they deserve, be it from the left, or the imaginary right.
