One caucus or primary does not make a nomination or win an election but on this day it can truly be said Donald Trump is what he has labelled so many others, and that is a LOSER.
Narcissus inspite of those infallible and wisdom laden prestigious pollsters lost in Iowa.
I have suspected that at some point Trump could not maintain his dominance, that as the campaign wore on at least some number of his supporters would tire of the loud mouthed strutting peacock and he would begin dropping if not in the polls, which should now be highly suspect, but where it counts most, securing state nominations and delegates.
That even his most rabid supporters would in time have to become as weary of the bluster, ego, and non specific “policies” that contain little more than words like “Great”, “Winning”, and “they love me” as they would if being waterboarded.
Trump didn’t have to shoot anyone to test his theory that he could and it would make no difference – a second place finish would for many candidates be encouraging just as Rubio’s third place one perentage point behind Trump was and Sanders statistical tie with the superpac and DNC abetted Clinton machine, but for Trump his brand has been tarnished and if any justice exists in the world the slide begins.
Trump may well win additional delegates, maybe even states, but the nomination?
Despite the collusion of the DNC and long time Clinton ally Debbie Wasserman
Schultz who heads the DNC ( convenient isn’t it?) with the Clinton campaign to hinder the Sanders campaign it failed to blunt his gathering momentum – next is New Hampshire which Sanders should win and then onto to South Carolina where Hillary seems to think she has a lock on the results, but Sanders message resonates across the very ethnic boundaries the Clinton’s have always relied upon and considered personal property.
Hillary’s desperation is showing as she attempts to paint herself as a progressive, a reformer, and one of the common people when nothing could be farther from the truth.
Her sudden claims to being a progressive and reformer are a direct result of the threat Sanders poses and led her to adopt several of his talking points with a tweak or two as though to make them appear she actually is a progressive rather than a corporate crony.
The gloves will be coming off now, especially if Sanders takes New Hampshire.
Hillary will revert to the standard Clinton modus operandi and go Leona Helms or Cruella DeVille dipping even further into the bag of Clinton dirty tricks, everything will be characterized as a right wing conspiracy from her email fiasco to losing delegates.
Feel the Bern – Bernie Sanders the candidate without a superpac, the candidate who has funded his entire campaign with donations from actual people, donations that average $27 per – that’s campaign reform, that’s integrity and not owing a damn thing to corporations, Wall Street, oil, banking, or pharmaceutical interests – something neither Hillary nor husband Bill can ever truthfully lay claim to.
A simple question? If a corporate entity like Goldman Sachs pays someone six hundred thousand dollars in “speaking fees” during a year as they did Hillary do you really believe they do so without expectations, that it doesn’t lead to influence?
If so then perhaps you should take a real look not only at the Clinton Foundation but Hillary’s history during elected and appointed tenures.
