Summing Up Week In Politics: Dems Looking Good, GOP Wondering How Bad Can It Get
After this past week on the national political stage there are two things that are for sure.
The presidential race has taken two very different tracks for the political parties.
In a stunning performance Hillary Clinton made congressional Republicans look small and nothing more than partisan trolls. With Vice-President Joe Biden no longer a possible contender the Democrats now know the field of candidates and also know the best path to victory.
Meanwhile one can almost smell the tension and fear emanating from the Repubclain Party. Some officials are even considering what could turn into a GOP civil war to stop Donald Trump. There is talk a of a super PAC to stop Trump. Any politico, even one with only tinfoil for an antenna, can easily determine Trump is doing lasting damage to the party. One can not continue to disrespect immigrants and then hope for Hispanics votes. Period. Those who care about the party and think about it’s future know the gravity of this situation.
The news this week from the Bush campaign was rather stunning. They will cut payroll costs by 40 percent, downsize its Miami headquarters by more than 50 percent, reduce travel costs by 20 percent and cut 45 percent of spending on things other than media and voter contact.
But with Bush downsizing his campaign with salary cutbacks one has to truly ask what is the long-term game-plan for the party? Ben Carson?
The madness continues from this party that is now proving they are no longer able to be considered a national governing party. From this blogger’s perspective there are no really good fallback options for the GOP now that Trump is center stage.
All know the GOP is in serious trouble. Might it not have been smarter years ago to shut down Trump at the time he started his birther nonsense and not allowed him to create a fan base in the shallow end of the Republican Party? That did not happen.
And look at the result.
