"As more and more Americans are waking up to the realization that Donald Trump could actually be the Republican nominee, some are excited and others are filled with fear and loathing."
Last night there was a celebration at the Rubio headquarters that looked like someone had just won the power-ball. It was a raucous and joyous affair. Nicky Haley was there. Tim Scott was there. Trey Gowdy was there. All to help Marco Rubio celebrate. Help him celebrate not winning a single delegate. Since South Carolina is kind of a winner take all state, Mr. Trump walked out of the casino with all (or at least most of) the chips.
So now it is on to Nevada. Jeb is out (mercifully) to go back to Florida and do something else. I don't think he will be asked to be in President Trump's cabinet. Too much blood spilled on the debate floor. The two Cubans are nipping at Mr. Trump's heals (sort of - they are not really that close) and Dr. Carson and John Kasich are still hanging tough (don't ask me why).
As more and more Americans are waking up to the realization that Donald Trump could actually be the Republican nominee, some are excited and others are filled with fear and loathing. What in the world would a Trump presidency look like in America? I think from an economic standpoint we might be okay (maybe I should underline might). Can't be any worse than what BHO has done to us. But other than a varied business background, Donald Trump's resume to run this country is as thin as Barack Obama's was.
Somebody I was talking to a week or two ago said something sobering. He asked why he should be excited about this election. The three people in this nation who are the fast track to be our next President are a elderly socialist, an un-indicted felon, and a blow hard who is a recent convert to the Republican Party. I could not argue with him - that is a sobering thought.
President Trump would be similar to Governor Ventura (in my opinion). Trump would be more like an Independent in the White House (like Ventura was in the Governor's House). I don't know if Trump could get along with most Republicans nor most Democrats (similar to Jesse). It might offer a new dimension to gridlock that we have not seen on a national level. Most Presidents who are a bit shy on experience, tend to surround themselves with very competent advisers. That is, if a President has an ego which allows him to take advice.
I don't know if the nation is ready for this. I know that I am not. As Admiral Ackbar said in a Star Wars movie, "It's a trap!" And it might be. We have seen a dysfunctional circus unfold in front of our eyes for the past 7+ years. The problem is with either Hillary, "The Bern", or the Trumpster, we will get more of the same - possibly worse. Maybe life in Canada might not that bad after all.
