Great commentary Ralph! Thank you for your insight into the shifting political landscape.
I too, knew Trump was going to blow up. His shoot-from-the-hip style works good in fictitious Hollywood, but not in serious discussions of nuclear foreign policy or domestic pro-choice issues. I suspected Trump was on stage just to make the insurance-scamming Jeb Bush look moderate by comparison. I'm still worried that the Bush crime family will resurrect Jeb "Exclamation Mark" back into the race. After all, Jeb never really quit. He just "suspended" his campaign until his first cousin, Gov Scott Walker of Wisconsin, could tear Trump apart like he did the Union workers in that state. (according to ex-NSA Wayne Madsen Reports, they are cousins.)
This is the payback for Trump humiliating bush in the debates, saying "maybe she should run" after Jeb started sobbing that his mother was a good woman!
Say what you will about Donald Mouth-Dump, but one thing was for sure. His attack on the bush crime family was epic! It included exposing to the wider public the lies GWB used to force the country into the biggest quagmire since Vietnam and an insinuation about revealing just who the real culprits were behind 911 (one in the same.)
Trump reminded me some of Ted Turner, "The Mouth from the South". It was just a matter of time before these kind of spoiled billionaires inserted their foot so far down their throats that no morning surgery could save them! They are so used to having the last word and being surrounded by toadies, that they just don't know when to shut up!
Trump is really a case in point why the very concept of a Billionaire, a man worshiped for manipulating others out of a fair share of the Earth's finite resources and wealth, should not even exist in our day and age. Does wealth automatically confer wisdom? Should being super-rich be the only measure of leadership?
Makes me want Nader. What a country and world this could have been if we had kept control of these Robber Barons who we now merely exist under...
