The Real Trump Effect | October 30, 2015

Of the thousands of people who think they can run for president, I tend to favor the hundred or so who are or were governors. No one is a more effective Republican as a governor than Scott Walker. His presidential aspirations are over for 2016. Now we’re left with people who only achieve support by not having a history of crushing Democrats.

Donald Trump has forced Republicans into outrageous comments, making uncomfortably strict statements about immigration punishment and having to answer weird personal insults from the Donald himself. The silver lining is that Wednesday’s debate also encouraged the candidates to do something Trump has been doing all along, calling out the media.

The GOP is not lacking in the “tell it like it is” category. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz do it on a regular basis. Republican talking points are highly popular. Republican action (or lack of same) is what disconnects them from the votes they seek. The only reason why they don’t take action is the fear of losing future votes. At the very least, the GOP needs to leverage their power to schedule debates to leave out openly hostile entities. The Democrats already shut out Fox in 2008.

  1. O’Reilly let the cat out of the bag (not this feine lover’s favorite expression, but there you have it) on his Thur. shOw saying Bush, who was a good governor, will be the nominee, though he lacks fire in the belly. Having witnessed O’Gasbag and Rove, during two consecutive shows, destroy what the msm had left of Sarah Palin. So, I know who speaks foo the RNC good old boyz, and I believe him about Bush being the nominee.

    I think Rush is right. The RNC would rather have Hillary as Pres than a Conservative–to which I’ll add, or an “outsider.”

    • The establishment got brainwashed into this future where everyone is Mexican and the GOP can’t possibly win unless they sell out. If that were true, the party would have died in 2009. The reality is that when people succeed in a free market, they support it. It applies to the Hispanics as well as the Asians. That is how you win future voters, not by pandering.
