This is one of those controversies I promised.
I started a s#!%storm on FB Friday when I responded to a poll that asked, “Who won the debate?” with the simple one word answer, “Hillary!”
Seriously, it was not well received at all!
But, you know, the Democrats DID win the Republican debate!
I watched in horror Thursday night as four “grown men” who want to be the leader of the free world “debated” one another. It.was.a.trainwreck.
Actually, it was a little like an 8th grade sock hop. Seems all the boys were trying to get to dance with the girl with the most Kleenex in her bra.
Everyone was posturing. Posing, preening, pathetic!
Now, I’m really not that political, but I do know common sense and decency when I see it, and quite frankly, I DIDN’T SEE ANY!!! While the world goes UP in flames, these asshats talk about “hand size”, con-men, and play the liar liar pants on fire game. They bloviated about what they would do if – Heaven forbid – they get elected.
Here’s a thought, they can’t do anything by themselves. Balance of powers, remember?
It takes a government to govern; executive, legislative, judicial, all that stuff. Claiming to build a wall, or fix this or that, doesn’t make it happen.
They have to work together.
And no one wants to.
And…what’s with Mitt Romney? Please put him back in the crypt.
He lost, he blew it, he screwed UP. What’s he doing? Posing for a re-run? Please say no!
Go away. Just go away.
And what about that pledge they all signed? Win or lose, I’ll support the party’s nominee? Was that real?
At the onset, when Trump announced, no one at the RNC HQ thought he had a snowball’s chance in hell of getting the nomination. So, they all, simply to avoid him pulling a Perot and making a third party run, signed on saying THEY would support the nominee.
As Trump gained momentum, rallied support, and started to garner delegates, they – the folks at the RNC – all started to freak out. Leaks about a brokered convention sprang out. The party faithful started working on a back door plan. Party leaders claimed they would not support him!
Well, here’s what’s gonna’ happen. If Trump shows UP in Cleveland without the 1200+ delegates he needs but is close and they take it away from him, it will destroy the Republican Party. And worse yet, it might destroy the two party system.
It would take decades to rebuild a party. We’d wind UP like Greece or Spain where there’s never a majority but a plurality and they can’t get anything done.
You think there’s gridlock in DC now?
Now, having rambled on and on, I’ll end with this. The men on the stage Thursday night embarrassed themselves, the party, and the nation.
Frankly, I fear for our nation.
This is not an endorsement of any candidate.
They all suck!
