Today is a rather large day in American politics. As many of us predicted, Hillary Clinton’s email troubles, her as-yet unexplained role in the Benghazi massacre, and her nearly unparalleled history of sometimes-video-recorded prevarication will in no way impede her obtaining the Democratic Party’s nomination for the office once held by her husband.
She doesn’t need to be any kind of truth-teller. Like the forged computer-generated Obama birth certificate and the befuddling Connecticut Social Security number that the current President has used both with impunity, and without the slightest media interest in examination, it just doesn’t matter that Mrs. Clinton has been caught in a few whoppers. Forget bona fides and truth. You know the razzamatazz. This is politics. It doesn’t matter.
I guarantee you that if someone could get a credible rumor started that there’s something really strange about Donald Trump’s birth certificate and Social Security number, the entire press corps would pick it up and run with it to the end of the Earth. But, I digress.
Fine. Nominate Mrs. Clinton. Let’s vote.
On the other side of the aisle, the GOP is in an absolute white-faced, sweaty-brow frenzy to find a way to stop its current front-runner, Mr. Donald Trump. He has managed to stay atop the polls for months on end as conservative America’s favorite to save the country from the extreme left, from our own migrant invasion from the south, and from the jihad. This phenomenon of trying to take out the GOP leader is nothing new. The establishment GOP did not want Ronald Reagan – ever. He was too extreme in his pro-American views and would surely lead us into a nuclear war.
Now the former head of the national GOP, Mel Martinez (a Bush man), joins the pile of Trump attackers. Over at WND.com, Cheryl Chumley has published a story wherein good old Mel says he’d pick Joe Biden before he’d vote for Donald Trump:
Former Republican National Committee chairman Mel Martinez, the first Hispanic to serve in that capacity, said he’d vote for pretty much anybody other than front-runner Donald Trump for president, even if that meant crossing party lines and picking a Democrat.
“I would not vote for Trump, clearly,” he said, in a Wall Street Journal piece. “If there is any, any, any other choice, a living, breathing person with a pulse, I would be there.”…
…Martinez threw his weight behind Sen. Marco Rubio shortly after former governor Jeb Bush dropped his bid. To the Wall Street Journal, he accused Trump of running a race to the Republican nomination that was “kind of crooked,” he said…
Imagine that. Mel Martinez threw his support behind Marco Rubio. The same Marco Rubio who has repeatedly tried to pass an amnesty for illegal aliens disguised under the nice comfy rhetoric of “comprehensive immigration reform”, and then reversed course to tell us how his Gang of Eight bill would never pass – after the American public set the D.C. telephone lines afire and stopped that bill dead in its tracks. If you can listen to Marco Rubio defend his shifting stances on amnesty and not get dizzy, you’re smarter than I am.
Read all of Chumley’s report.
And we shall calmly await the Super Tuesday voting results to see where Mr. Trump stands after the smoke clears.
