Some conservatives and Republicans out there are perplexed if not flummoxed by the candidacy of Donald Trump. More than a few have probably developed heartburn.
At this point, after correctly talking about the crimes that illegal immigrants are perpetrating, to his remarks about [mc_name name=’Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’M000303′ ], and his debate presence and post debate feud with Megyn Kelly, you either love The Donald, hate him(as a possible POTUS), or is enjoying the show like I am.
To understand The Donald you have to understand what he is as a political animal. He is the 5-6 best debate moments of Newt Gingrich, with a side of Ross Perot, combined with Ronda Rousey elbows, added to Donald Trump’s ego and reality TV apparatus, plus a rabid wolverine, mix all in blender, and you have The Donald.
Many are openly wondering if Trump, whose given money to the Clinton’s, and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, isn’t some kind of chaos merchant meant to somehow enable to Hillary coronation to proceed uninterrupted. Others think of Trump as some kind of circus act that will get old and boring and go away soon.
What no one can deny or should doubt, and absolutely not underestimate, is the anger and raw emotion that Trump has tapped into especially at his start when it was all about illegal immigration. That seething anger and boiling discontent was there long before Donald Trump entered the Republican primary race. That raw emotional power stirring beneath the surface of the Republican Parties base will long out live Trumps time in the spot light.
Donald Trump isn’t a phenomenon to be feared, it is one to be put to useful purposes.
With the ascendancy of Trump, who has been hurt the most in the polls, and by that stinker of a debate performance? Jeb Bush.
Who is constantly up there at or near the top of the polls nationally and of the early states behind Jeb and Trump? Scott Walker, [mc_name name=’Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’C001098′ ], Dr. Ben Carson, Mike Huckabee. Combine that with the debate results which have further weakened on Jeb and gained on Cruz, Carson and Carly Fiorinia and the results of Trump’s candidacy start to crystallize.
Jeb Bush, being the establishment candidate, should have 30% support even in a crowded field, following the Fox debate he’s going to be lucky to crack 10%, to Trumps 20-25%. This leaves a huge opening for the cream of the conservative crop to raise up and knock him out or at least farther down. There is still a month of campaigning ahead but don’t be surprise if after the next debate Jeb loses half or more of his support and the GOP establishment makes a serious turn towards backing John Kasich. If that implosion of the chosen moderate establishment candidate happens we can and should thank Donald Trump for that.
In time someone will turn off the blender and let the wolverine out and the shooting star of Donald Trump will fade into the political winds like Hillary Clinton’s dream of being President(yeah Biden is so getting the nomination).
Fear not The Donald or the indigestion his entertaining form of political theatre brings.
The end result will be a President Scott Walker, or President [mc_name name=’Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’C001098′ ], Or President Ben Carson, and someone seriously thinking of Carly for VP.
Enjoy that my friends.
The Donald will ultimately give us a conservative President.
