Would you believe we are more than a year out from the next Presidential election? With all the press, you would think we were only a month away.
What the Dem’s have provided us with an absolute campaign snoozefest, the GOP has made up for in a Kardashian-like reality show. It’s hotter than Kansas City in July. I’ve been wanting to write about it for weeks, but I haven’t been able to shoot the gap and begin typing between outrageous statements.
First, there are more candidate in GOP race for the White House than kids in the Duggar family. Here they are in no particular order:
Trump, Cruz, Bush, Huckabee, Walker, Carson, Rubio, Perry, Snoopy, Santorum, Kasich, Fiorina, Graham, Ziggy, Paul, Pluto, Patton…
Maybe I made some of those up to see if you were still awake.
With a candidate pool like this, what’s the best strategy for standing out?
Dazzling Americans with your amazing foreign policy plan?
Wow us with your plan for economic prosperity?
Not a chance.
Hurl insults at groups of people and make Holocaust references whenever possible? Cue the confetti, drop the American Flag and send in the bald Eagles – we have a winner!
First you have “The Donald” who we all know insulted a group of people with absolutely no fact behind what he was saying.
Quick reminder – Donald hasn’t outlined anything substantial he will actually DO as President. Every time he says something outrageous his poll numbers go up. In fact, he’s leading right now. Screw actual details about what he would bring to the table as President – just keep ranting about all the people you think are bringing down the country Donald. If you run out, just resort to “your mama” insults. It’s working like a song.
We have one year left. I think his campaign manager is coming up with a list of minorities for him to insult on a weekly basis- it should have him skating right into the nomination.
Let’s just assume his economic plan for America is more golf courses and colorful ties.
Then we have Mike Huckabee who decided he HAD to do something in order to get noticed.
Gee…what to do? What to do?
I know! Donald I will see your insults and I’ll raise you an inappropriate Holocaust reference.
Sure enough that’s what the very Christian Mike Huckabee did when discussing the Iran deal that the Obama Administration worked out. I’ll quote this one, because it’s just too disgusting to pass up,
“This president’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history. It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven. This is the most idiotic thing, this Iran deal. It should be rejected by both Democrats and Republicans in Congress and by the American people. I read the whole deal. We gave away the whole store. It’s got to be stopped.”
Wow Mike. You really went for it there. We will just have to wait and see if your poll numbers got a boost on that one.
Watching this reminds me of the Will Farrell movie “The Campaign” – at least no one has punched a baby yet. But then again – the campaign still has a year to go.
