Trump Campaign is Dead
"Are you people so foolish as to believe that Trump has a shot at the GOP nomination? Snap out of it! His campaign is practically dead."
My reply is as follows:
I don't care if a Trump nomination is a very long, long shot, or if his campaign is practically dead as you say. Trump is willing to go where other pols fear going, that is his strength. And that's where the issue of Obama's dilly dallying for seven months on the bin Ladin raid comes in. This is the kind of stuff Trump loves and is good at. Trump is a killer businessman and politician who goes after the jugular and takes no prisoners. When confronting Obama Trump's been applying Vladimir Lenin's well known maxim: "When probing with a dagger plunge in when finding mush, withdraw when hitting bone." Indeed, Trump can turn Obama's childish dithering in getting bin Ladin into a much bigger and more damaging issue than the birth certificate. The public isn't rallying behind Obama or buying into his newfound image of tough and decisive leadership. They feel instinctively that something is very wrong, that they're not geting the true story from the disembler in chief, and Trump can clarify for them what that is. Besides, Trump deserves credit for forcing Obama to make up his slow, brooding, over cautious mind on striking bin Ladin; and he should go out and claim it.
Postscript: The 3 AM Call
Is this tough, decisive leadership we can believe in and trust? It took Obama seven months to answer the 3 am call.
