Trump a go-go

Whether you like Trump or not, there are a few things that are hard to deny about him. I just wish the other candidates could learn and use some of the same stuff Trump uses. I don’t have a lot of confidence in that happening but it would be a good place to start.

Trump is not politically correct, and in a good way. They could all take a page from that book. He is not beholden to special interests. Well, few might be able to finance their own election but they could start with not pandering to the politically correct crowd. America has some respect for not getting bogged down. Run like the anti-politician or insurgent.

But then there is the final point or lesson from Trump. One needs to play to win. That seems like a moot point, but is it? After John McCain, and after Mitt Romney. We certainly know the Clintons, and Hillary particularly, play to win. Haven’t we come a long way to have to remind the candidate to play to win? It seems funny to have to say it.

Sure Trump has an ego, so what? Hillary doesn’t? It is not enough to run to place. No, I am not asking the candidates to turn themselves into a bombastic Lance Armstrong hybrid. But can’t they really want to win and defeat the opponent?

Not like we don’t have enough ammunition to use against Hillary, or Democrats for that matter. Why not run like you mean it? If they don’t believe in themselves, how is the rest of the country going to get behind them? It’s fundraising, cha ching.

The arguments are: ‘let’s not turn this into a sideshow.’ You mean it isn’t already? After Obama disgraced the office and after our pols let all this happen under their watch. ‘Let’s be serious and smart about this election.’ Let’s be smart enough to know what doesn’t work. And stop listening to Dems in choosing a candidate.

‘You cannot go out and offend people.’ No, that is not the objective. But this is the presidency, and under the circumstances we are strapped in. Face it, you are going to offend some people. Get over it. Some people are naturally offended… particularly the establishment type RNC or DNC and their kingmakers. Who among us is not offended by everything hoisted on us in the last 6-8 years, especially by Obama? The truth can be offensive.

    I like “stand for election” instead of running.

    Bull,

    I would really like to see our candidates get as obnoxious as the left. It works for them, why not us?

    Today just about everything is considered “offensive” and it’s time to stop playing the left’s game to shut us up including repugs.

    Hell’s Bells I get offended by the left but I don’t start a riot or burn things down or sue over it. Being offended is part of life. Grow up all you losers.

    Donald is good at bringing up topics that I think is going to force the others out in the open about exactly where they stand and wth they plan to do about it. So I think he serves a purpose in this race.

      Pepp, the polite nice way hasn’t been working in years. Like they want to have a polite competition, then an apology convention. So if they don’t care, then get out.

      No one advocates destroying anything except this defeatist attitude. Ha no riots and there is nothing left to loot. Yep, if not offending anyone is the golden rule, they really need to check themselves.

      I agree, he brings in a lot of color. I saw a few internet surveys on who do you want to see on the debate stage? But Trump wasn’t on them. Ha ha here are all your choices…. as long as you choose Jeb. When did having gonads become a disadvantage?

    No nice isn’t working and never will with these fools. So they need to get some balls like Trump. I don’t know about those polls not wanting to see Trump in debates since he’s running right behind the lead Jeb. Sounds kind of screwy to me.

    Bull, I just heard Rubio on Fox saying Trump has taken away a chance for them to have a serious debate about Illegal immigration. (Paraphrased.)

    HUH? Trump brought it up. So hey RubyShoes start a debate then one you jackass!

      Huh? yep. oh there’s no agenda there is there? And he’s the one to have it I suppose. That smell of elitism is wafting out of my screen again.

      Right, LOL Rubyshoes LOL Trump beat him to the punch bringing it up. Like someone had to, no? What a jerk he is sounding like. I guess he is afraid of debating the issue.

        Yes the honorable “elite RubyShoes”. Quite the air about his precious toes. There is nothing to stop this blob from having a discussion over illegals flocking in here and destroying us. So why doesn’t RubyShoes have one?

        I can’t say what is wrong with Rubyshoes but I think he’s a bit jealous that Trump beat him to the shoe factory.

          Pepp, ooh that’s funny. I used to kind of like him but seeing him weave in an out on illegals was big stop sign. The more he talks the more I think it all is talk. And a good deal establishment. Too many favorite sons in this horse race.

          I will say one thing for Ruby, he staked something on this race like Trump did. He gave up running in the Senate, so it is costing him personally. The rest are squawking but the more I see of what Trump has on the line, and what it is costing him, the more respect I have for him.

    40 years ago, our second worst president, Jimmy Carter, talked of the need for austerity measures to deal with what we were facing in terms of a shortfall. Most of our presidents have been either great presidents and bad men or good men and bad presidents. Clinton representing the former and Ford, the latter. Carter was a bad president and merely irritating as a man, but he was horribly right about the economic debacle we are facing, with a debt now approaching 3 times all the money in the world. Ain’t no way everyone is going to be paid.
    The truth offends people. We need someone offensive to pull us back from the brink.

      Ha, you are spot on, again. Don’t you hate when that happens? Ol’ Jimmy rears his ugly head again, always at the worst of times.

      I guess someone offensive would almost be a pleasant change after Mr. Itchy Ears. But then few concerns — problems or threats — are anywhere on O’s mind. I think he checked out the day he checked in.

    For those too young, he called it “the moral equivalent of war.” And he was spot on.
