Like Slim Pickens in “Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb” the Republicans might as well hold on, enjoy the ride and act excited about what their doing.
Hillary may be finally honing in on just the right language to appease the remote left. Bernie has certainly aided her with his free stuff message, but she’s also done well vilifying the right. The bad, racist, misogynist, and greedy right. Stay tuned for her to make hay with the Senate’s refusal to consider Judge Garland’s nomination. Absent in that discussion will be the play book on judicial nominee stonewalling written by Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Ted Kennedy, Dick Durbin and Chuck Schumer. We even have a new verb coined by democrats to summarize the process, to “bork.”
Absent in her message is anything on national security. She and her supporters would disagree with that though. After all the greatest threat, according to that distant left thinking mindset, is climate change.
Quite a contrast between Iraq elections of a decade ago and those today in America.
Donald Trump is storming through the Republican primary to the surprise of just about everyone. It seems as though the worse the behavior, the bigger the following. We discussed this in an earlier post so we won’t replay that here.
But who’s to blame for Trump’s rise?
If you look at recent editorial cartoons, Frankenstein’s monster is the latest metaphor used to explain it. Just check out the examples below. The Republican establishment and Fox News appear to be popular. But we think there’s a simpler explanation.
The best explanation is to look no further than Obama. A huge segment of the population isn’t pleased with the direction this country has been taken. It’s not just the policies, it’s Obama’s childlike qualities, and we don’t mean an honest, doe-eyed innocence. We’re speaking of his callow actions as he attempts to build a legacy. A legacy that has more in common with a petulant toddler than the leader of the free world. Check out this ever expanding list:
Voter’s want something the opposite of what we currently have. Unfortunately with the pendulum having swung so far in one direction, the kinetic energy during it’s reverse course will swing us too far along an about-faced bearing. Trump is the anti-Obama, but not in a good way.
