First big victory in 2016… Party on

The first major victory in 2016 is complete: Jeb is out of the running.

Congratulations people for a hard fought race. It wasn’t easy. There was the presumptuous front-runner status. There was the endless fundraising campaign and the “Right to Rise” Pac — who could go wrong with that name?

Then there was the endless spending campaign for Jeb started right after his inevitable announcement. There were the celebrity endorsements, complete with family patriarchs with more pomp than a season of Dynasty.

I mean what could go wrong? Oh, you mean that little thing like no one wanted him? Like that ever mattered. It’s about the spending, stupid! That is to say the Citizens United case that made it all this possible. So we were told.

Turned out Citizens United was not the be all end all. Well, seems all that Right to Rise spending could not join Jeb with the White House. Wedding plans fell apart and invitations were rescinded. All the money in the world couldn’t put Jeb’s house back together again.

So what of the famous Right to Rise pac? Its illustrious leader was stymied. Mike Murphy may still be counting(or denying) his salary but the mission was a bust. Jeb suspended his campaign the night of the South Carolina defeat.

Scorched earth politics is an expensive proposition, and so is losing. Murphy denied leaked reports on his lucrative compensation package. Whatever it was, it did not pay off.

I suppose it depends on the definition of “our corner”.
Right to Rise to the gutter rose to the challenge.
Party on!

    Rah Rah, we the people actually had a say. Proves all the money, all the PACS you got can’t get you the presidency if the people are willing to reject a candidate.

  2. Like the way you are describing your Political stage, down to earth and spot on, wonder what your thinking is on Hillary Clinton, personally like Jeb Bush, I think too many Politicians think they are already elected, just by having a name associated with past Presidents or Governors.

      Thanks so much, as you say so much politics is the same wherever. I’d say Clinton is the ultimate opportunist and no rules apply to her. Lie, cheat, whatever it takes. Her perception is supposed to be our reality. But comparing Jeb to her, so much the same though more dishonesty with Hillary. Both products of and connected to the past. Well, IMHO. Hoping this will be the un-anointing of both Dynasties.

      Thanks, enjoy your writing. 🙂
