So a lot of dem bigshots are figuring Plughead Biden to run for preezy. First, I think this is largely generated by media types who just want to stir the pot of political intrigue. You would be hard pressed to convince me that Killary would ever consider dropping out of the race because she has no expectation of being held accountable for her criminality. Just won’t believe it until I actually see it.
Secondly, the media frenzy over The Donald is completely understandable. He’s a walking highlight machine for the talking heads. Whether he can put together the grassroots effort to go out and knock on doors and organize the troops in every state remains to be seen. My feeling is that, although he’s like another Perot, playing on peoples’ frustrations, he offers no solutions that would actually work. If he were elected and tried to remove illegals and their children it would be a PR disaster. Every network would have cameras there to film the distraught parents and the screaming kids being forced into the ICE van. So far, immigration is the only issue he’s had a definitive opinion about. He has long advocated a 20% tariff on foreign goods, which would crush the economy. Bush tried it with foreign steel, remember? It seems to me he’s a little like poor Mikey Bloomberg who ran as a republican for mayor of NYC because there was less competition for the nomination. He never was and never would be any kind of republican. In much the same way Trump seems to be tacking right for the attention that he feeds on.
Still, a debate between The Donald and Plugs would be must-see TV. The brain would drown in hair jokes. I just remain unconvinced that either of them will make the final cut once the circus gets boring.
