  • Trump, Finally Explained (Trump, A Dunce Like Reagan)

    New York Times ^ | 12/03/2016 | Gail Collins
    Some of you may find it disturbing that one of Trump’s chief apologists was basically saying that he talks policy like a drunk at happy hour. Some of you may hear Trump constantly contradicting today what he said yesterday and decide he’s an idiot. From now on I’m going to try to think of him as a little bit like my dog, Frieda. Frieda is extremely intelligent, but her memory is only good for about 90 seconds. When you listen to Trump’s Inaugural Address, or his first State of the Union, keep reminding yourself that he’s reserving the right to...

    The author told Breitbart News Executive Chairman and host Stephen K. Bannon that the idea of “positive thinking” has been a crucial but misunderstood concept in America. Bannon agreed and pointed out early in the program that from President Reagan’s outlook that “Nothing is Impossible”... He cites that Norman Vincent Peale, who was widely derided in the intellectual culture, revealed that scripture is laden with ideas that the mind has “positive powers.” Horowitz defends Peale as someone who worked very hard laboring over scripture and was not mistaken in believing that it embodied a “Theology of Self Affirmation. It didn’t...

    When his eldest child, Maureen, got into West Point, Mr. Bannon was thrilled and joked about switching his allegiance to Army from Navy. He never missed her volleyball games, and he was at Fort Campbell, Ky., in 2011 when she returned from a deployment to Iraq. “That was one of the greatest feelings I’ve had, seeing my dad when I walked off the plane,” she said. But through his daughter’s service, he saw an inequity that fueled his anger at the privileged Americans among whom he had long worked. At West Point, “he saw a complete, utter lack of people...

    Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama is about to face a wave of intense scrutiny as he seeks confirmation to become attorney general and head the Justice Department in President-elect Donald Trump's upcoming administration. Trump said Friday that it was an "honor to nominate" a "world-class legal mind" to the position. Sessions said, should he be confirmed, that he will give "all my strength to advance" its "highest ideals" and will be dedicated to "fairness and impartiality." But Sessions is likely to face heavy examination over his overall record, as well as decades-old allegations of racism that are now certain to...

    Conservative Review ^ | November 18, 2016 | Paul Kengor
    Beginning last summer, I wrote a series of articles for Conservative Review comparing Donald Trump and Ronald Reagan. The series was inspired by Trump enthusiasts insisting that their man was the closest thing to America’s next Ronald Reagan. Donald Trump was no less than “another Reagan.” Most central to the Trump-Reagan thesis was the curious insistence that the underestimated Trump, just like the once-underestimated Reagan, would rise up and crush Hillary Clinton in Reaganesque fashion. It would be a landslide. Don't Miss A Tweet Profile Picture Conservative Review @CR Follow Well, with the historic vote of Tuesday, November 8, 2016,...

    Libertarian Republic ^ | Nov. 10, 2016 | Josh Guckert
    Conservative columnist George Will is often keen on saying that Barry Goldwater, the man who suffered one of the most catastrophic defeats in American political history, was actually the victor. Will often states that, “We — 27,178,188 of us — who voted for him in 1964 believe he won, it just took 16 years to count the votes.” Will is of course referring to the massive landslide which Ronald Reagan won in 1980, thus leading to a phenomenon known as the “Reagan Revolution.” Un-coincidentally, Goldwater gave Reagan his start in politics with the former’s failed presidential campaign. Reagan famously made...

    Even more than in 1980, the media this year was in the tank for the Democrats. That crazy, racist and fringe tea party movement had been put in its place, dismissed as consisting of little more than a bunch of elderly ignoramuses not even worth mentioning as everyone prepared to coronate Mrs. Clinton. Less idealistic about how long it would take to change the country, tea party activists had gone to work, joining with others who distrusted pollsters and do not answer surveys.

    Many of the people announcing an intention to vote for Donald Trump are adding a disclaimer to distance themselves from his unsavory comments or actions of the past. I’m not going to do that. In my view Donald Trump is today a far different and better man than the one who threw his hat in the ring at the start of this election cycle. I credit that to the unprecedented level of public vilification – the “borking” of Donald Trump – he has endured and appears to have been transformed by. Whatever his worldview and the context of his past...

    Pollsters and the news media keep trying to dispirit Mitt Romney’s supporters and to show that Barack Obama will be the inevitable victor. Even after the polling has been packed with Democrats, Obama cannot show a convincing lead that would take him to victory.

One of the most dramatic was a Gallup Poll result 2 weeks before the 1980 General Election that showed Jimmy Carter to be far ahead of Ronald Reagan.

The older the voter, the more they remember the "90"s and who the Clintons are. Plus younger voters are turned off by Hillary and thus less apt to even vote this year.

A candidate lacking the right background to keep the nation out of protracted wars or even nuclear confrontation.

We all know, in hindsight, what a magnificent job was done by the last man they said these things about.
