Well we’ve had quite a time since the Republican Convention.
We’ve had the Democratic Convention which was a rousing, yay America whoopla filled with excellent speeches. Michelle Obama’s stood out for me. Many people held out Barack Obama’s as the most noteworthy.
There were many which soared including Joe Biden’s ” that’s a bunch of malarkey” speech.
Also earning a mention was Michael Bloomberg, an erstwhile Republican who tore down Donald Trump’s credibility as a businessman as well as a billionaire.
Hillary and Bill gave speeches which were hoped to be more inspirational, but worked positively just the same. She got a bigger bump 7-9% than Trump did which was about 4 points.
But he took the bait and for about 5 days after the Democrats convention he picked a verbal fight with the muslim family of a Gold Star soldier who challenged him on the constitution.
More recently Donald Trump suggested that if Hillary wins, there goes the supreme court, unless maybe the “2nd amendment” people have something to say about it. It was a suggestion of assassination, and finally CNN and Twitter and other sources began to hold him to account for outrageous words.
He of course denied that he suggested she be assassinated.
Next he stated, repeatedly and over a couple of days, that President Obama “founded” ISIS. When challenged on it. He repeated it, and yet again. Later he said he was being sarcastic.
Its not sarcasm. Its outrageous.
He has a way, when he is speaking spontaneously, of packing a lot of phrases, into a paragraph, that suggest evil things, but are hard to pin down because he doesn’t make sentences.
Its evil. Its dangerous.
He’s also suggested that the election is rigged which opens the possiblity of armed revolt if he doesn’t win.
I don’t think he really wants to win. He won’t, according to reports from shows such as Morning Joe, follow advice and goes off script unless he has a caretaker from his small campaign right there with him.
50 (I believe I heard it was up to 70) Republican national security policy officials have written a letter suggesting that people should not vote for the standard bearer of their party. Trump is too dangerous.
She is gaining in the polls in states that have typically gone Republican in recent years.
We could have a landslide election. There are many people that are going to Trump rallies and they are passionate. We could have a revolution.
We’re ready for it to all be over.
We need to keep our election processes under a year in function. After all a House member’s term is only 2 years.
Now we have The Olympics. Next we’ll have the debates.
Later … we’ll have a revolution?
