Donald Trump continues to do what we suggest. He’s very smart.
On Friday, Trump turned down an invitation to a forum in South Carolina hosted by Heritage Action. Credit where credit is due – Lindsey Graham also turned down the invitation. Why was this so smart?
Some Trump supporters became concerned when Trump announced he was otherwise preoccupied and sent his regrets. Big Media tried to spin it as Trump cowardice. We thought the Trump supporters should have been elated. As with Lindsey Graham it was an everything to lose nothing to gain easy decision (even if Graham is polling so low the Heritage folks didn’t want him).
Lindsey, had nothing to gain by attendance at the Heritage event, even though it was held in Lindsay’s home state. The Heritage folks hate Graham more than Paris Hilton hates Lindsay Lohan, so why go? Lindsay skipped town.
As to Trump, he too had nothing to gain and something to lose. Consider, Trump is tops in South Carolina. Trump polls at more than 34% in South Carolina with Carson #2 at 19%. Trump attendance at the Heritage forum would only give attention and publicity to the losers. Trump made the smart decision with his ‘I’m too busy with my magnificent business deals to bother with your puny forum, losers.’
The result of the Trump turndown? Few watched or cared about the forum. Winner? Donald J. Trump.
Another big Trump win this week was the second GOP debate. We’ve already written about why Trump won the debate so we won’t repeat ourselves. In an ordinary campaign that would be triumph enough for one week.
Trump’s greatest triumph of the week however was on Thursday. Finally, a presidential candidate did what we suggested so many times. What is it that we have suggested that only Donald Trump has taken to heart? This from our September 11 article this year:
John McCain and Mitt Romney as presidential candidates said Barack Obama was “nice” even as Obama trashed them. This praise of Obama continues even though Obama calls Republicans in opposition to his policies “terrorists”.
It’s a running theme from us: Stop calling Obama “nice”. Call Obama what he is, a nasty bastard. We’ve written it over and over and over. Hillary2008 and now Hillary2016 refuses to listen and that is why that campaign is sinking faster than Obama’s presidency. That clod Mitt Romney never really learned our lesson even as we tried to beat him into it back in 2012:
“Make it explicit. Stop with the clever ads that the politically involved understand. Tell the truth clearly and without fear. Mitt Romney should run an ad that goes something like this:
“Do you like Barack Obama? Do you think Barack Obama is nice? Does a nice man call his political opponent a felon? Does a nice man call his political opponent a murderer? Barack Obama is not nice. Barack Obama is nasty.”
Mitt Romney is and was a loser. Mitt Romney never fully understood or had the cojones to do what had to be done. Donald Trump deep down understands. Donald Trump totally understands everything we wrote in this 2012 article:
Mitt Romney must not whine. Mitt Romney has to strike at Obama’s heart. Mitt Romney must expose Obama for the ugly person he is.
Any American who still thinks Barack Obama is a “nice person” must be shown what a creep Barack Obama is. [snip]
First, clearly and without equivocation make Barack Obama personally responsible for the lies. Don’t blame the Obama campaign, blame Obama himself. Ads should be produced which clearly state something along the lines of: “Barack Obama pretends he is a nice person. But Barack Obama is a dirty Chicago thug and liar. Barack Obama is lying about Mitt Romney. Barack Obama commands his campaign to call Mitt Romney a “felon”. Barack Obama pretends he is nice. But Barack Obama is a nasty thug.” [snip]
Why didn’t Mitt Romney simply say that Barack Obama personally is the source of these nasty attacks. That Barack Obama himself is in full control of his campaign and that Barack Obama is the nasty thug hurling lies and smears at Mitt Romney. Why all the weak language Mitt?
Donald Trump understands what we write. In 2012 we wrote that many of the Romney “attack” ads against Obama sounded more like pro-Obama ads. A few days ago in Dallas Trump attacked on Karl Rove and the money Rove wasted in 2012. Donald Trump made the exact same argument we made repeatedly and with all the examples from the ads of 2012. The “anti-Obama” ads appeared to be pro-Obama ads. Read our article in full and look at the ads we lambasted Read what we wrote and then watch Donald Trump say almost the exact same thing in almost the exact same words:
It’s is not that Trump saw what we saw with those counterproductive ads purportedly against Obama, it’s that Trump then said what needed to be said about Obama. In Dallas Trump attacked Obama directly. Directly. That was a shocker after so many losers like Mitt Romney and John McCain saying nice things about Obama.
Then on Thursday, while other alleged candidates for president rested from the travails of a debate, Donald Trump went to New Hampshire to hold a town hall debate. The first question was about Obama and Muslims. That led to a concerted Big Media outrage campaign alongside the anti-Trump losers on the political spectrum because, get this, Donald Trump did not defend nasty Barack Obama.
Yeah, Big Media and Jeb Bush wanted Donald Trump to be like this loser:
That’s why McCain is a loser and why he lost. Loser, Loser, Loser.
Donald Trump is not a loser. That’s why Donald Trump understands exactly what to say:
Trump defend Obama? ‘I don’t think so!’
Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump said on Saturday it was not his job to stand up for U.S. President Barack Obama after a man at one of his campaign events said he was a Muslim and “not even an American.”
“Am I morally obligated to defend the president every time somebody says something bad or controversial about him? I don’t think so!” Trump said on Twitter.
Trump drew criticism on Friday from Republican and Democratic rivals in the 2016 race for the presidency when he failed to challenge a man at a New Hampshire town hall Thursday night who said Muslims were a problem in the United States.
“We know our current president is one. You know he’s not even an American,” the man said.
Trump, the billionaire television personality who leads the pack of Republicans seeking the presidential nomination, has cast doubt on whether Obama was born in the United States and therefore qualified to stand as president.
“This is the first time in my life that I have caused controversy by NOT saying something,” Trump tweeted. “If someone made a nasty or controversial statement about me to the president, do you really think he would come to my rescue? No chance!”
That’s a pretty good response right there. But Trump added to the Trumpelishissness with this:
Far from trying to tamp down the controversy, Trump appeared to reach for more in his tweets Saturday morning, implying that Christians have suffered under Obama.
“Christians need support in our country (and around the world), their religious liberty is at stake! Obama has been horrible, I will be great,” Trump said.
That’s how you win. Trump knows how to win. Jeb Bush? Jeb Bush is on the McCain/Romney road to ruin:
MACKINAC ISLAND – Jeb Bush took a swipe at Donald Trump on Friday evening for refusing to shut down a supporter who called President Barack Obama a Muslim.
“By the way, he’s an American, he’s a Christian,” the former Florida governor said in a speech here at the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference, a gathering of party activists and officials in Michigan.
That’s the ticket you loser. Do what McCain did. Defend Obama. then when Obama trashes you think about how morally superior you are as you set yourself up to lose you loser.
Jeb Bush proved himself a loser in Mackinac Island with his weakness and defense of Obama – in yet another crapfest meeting with all the other losers in attendance. Count Trump out of this loserfest! Jeb Bush can be content among the other losers reading about the White House attack on Trump and the latest stupidity from Hillary Clinton in her attack on Trump. Hillary, Jeb, these other losers in Mackinac Island have not learned a thing about nasty Obama.
Donald J. Trump is not a loser. That’s why Trump won’t associate with the other losers today in Mackinac Island. Instead, on Saturday night Trump will campaign in Iowa. Expect Trump, Trump, Trump, with no apologies, no craven bow, no fear. Just happy students happy to be with a winner on Saturday night.
Now that Trump has survived yet another, and biggest of all assaults, on him – it’s time for the GOP establishment to do whatever to Stop Trump. Before the debate we predicted that pawn Carson would be replaced with pawn Fiorina who will flame out as soon as her history is exposed, who will then be replaced with another pawn – all to try to knock out Trump so that JeBush can be the nominee.
The probable next pawn will be John Kasich, we surmised, but Kasich is such a loser he’s spending millions on ads in New Hampshire and barely holding on. So Kasich is a problem pawn. Most all the other candidates have failed as pawns against Trump already. So now there is a new old pawn called to duty:
Can Romney Save Us From Trump?
In a tastefully furnished conference room somewhere in the nation’s capital, leaders of the GOP establishment are popping antacids and shaking their heads. Donald Trump is the face of their party now — and there’s no stopping him.
In the latest CNN poll, his lead has grown, due to increased support among two groups they assumed would grow to hate him: Republican women and college graduates. Every candidate challenging The Donald has seen his numbers drop. Ben Carson may be next over his rather dubious decision to attack Trump on illegal immigration — the issue that propelled Trump to first place in the first place.
If only there were someone out there who could appeal to establishment voters, but also engender support from the rank and file. An outsider who has never worked in Washington. Someone with some “high energy,” without the need for caffeine.
The “outsider” in this bit of foolishness is none other than Mitt Romney. Yup, Mitt Romney. A former governor who ran for president and lost who is the son of a former governor who ran for president and lost is now declared an “outsider” by those who want to stop Trump.
Mitt Romney 2016!!! That’s just about as funny, ok, funnier than Joe Biden 2016. What’s the equivalent to this? Imagine you fell into the ocean and are drowning. A dimwitted sailor hands you a decorative life preserver made of concrete. You put the cement life preserver on. You sink, you drown, you die, you stupid.
That’s what Big Media wanted Donald Trump to do this week. Big Media and the GOP establishment wanted Donald Trump to put on some cement shoes and go jump in a deep lake. But Donald Trump is too smart to don cement shoes like a murder victim in a Mafia hit movie. Donald Trump is too smart. He proved it this week.
