Oh, I know it was just an expressive statement, not a reality, but to think that the stumblers and bumblers in the Establishment think they have figured out how to end the Trump campaign is laughable. Their favorite, Jeb Bush, is looking weak and indecisive and can't even clearly express himself while The Donald is riding high, drawing huge and excited crowds as he takes the oxygen out of the room from all of the other candidates. And they are also too stupid to realize that their own actions have created the Trump candidacy, for Trump didn't decide to enter the fray until he realized that the Republicans would never have the "guts" to take on the real issues and support the people who put them there. It's truly amazing that after two successive losses in Presidential elections with mediocre candidates they can't figure out what the problem is.
Sadly, they know, but they put their own self interests as candidate brokers and slaves to the Chamber of Commerce for money first, because as we saw in 2012, Karl Rove's campaign raked in some thirty million dollars while Romney lost and they were able to laugh all the way to the bank despite the defeat. And Alex Castellanos is just another one of those long term consultants whose allegiance has no relationship to the average American that his party is supposed to serve.
And that bring me back to Trump, an energetic, brash but also brilliant man who loves his country and wants to make her great again. And since he is financially independent to the highest degree and has no need to pander to the Republican pundits, they can't stand the fact that he is his own man. And that, folks, is what America loves about him, plus his glee at breaking the chains of political correctness. And while there are other qualified candidates to consider, no one else has the combination of independence and passion of his own confidence in tackling the monumental task ahead. He knows that should his goal be attained, he will be inheriting the helm of a government that is dysfunctional with an employee base that is demoralized on the one hand with other portions of it clearly out of control. Trump, a no nonsense taskmaster, is just the one to take it on and, in the process, cut the operation down to size.
So Alex Castellanos, I think you might want to put a gag on your mouth, because if you bring a shiv to a street brawl with Trump, he's likely to bring a .357 with a back-up combat patrol. Oh, this upcoming political season is surely gonna' be fun. Put your seatbelts on and stand by.
