“Yesterday, New Hampshire held the first primary in the nation. Whoever wins will be easy pickings for Donald Trump come November” by Chef Charles Smithenstein
WINTER SESSION 2020
BLOG POST #3,391 AT THE AICP-END
268 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020
I ask you, who has withstood more anal exams than Donald J. Trump and emerged smelling like a rose from each one?
Delano, CA 93216, 02-12-2020 Wednesday: Yesterday, the Dems were duking it out in the Granite State, fighting over every last crumb of a vote and man, did the folks there run a primary the way that Iowa wishes it could have run its laughable caucuses. I would hope that by the time the next election cycle rolls around that the caucus format will be buried underneath six feet of cold hard earth. It truly sucks and anyone who lives in a non-caucus state views such lunacy with a high degree of disdain. It is archaic, ripe for swindling, and a load of dog crap on the bottom of one’s crocs.
At the time I sat down and began writing this post, NO one was sure as to who was going to walk away with the victory. It appears that Senator Bernie Sanders and Mayor Pete Buttigieg are battling it out for the first and second spot while Senator Amy Klobuchar could come in third.
Clinging to the peripheries were Senator Elizabeth Warren and possibly Senator Michael Bennett who apparently has dumped loads of resources into the state in the hope that if he can come in somewhere within the top three, that maybe it might springboard him to victory in other states.
As for Joe Biden, the former vice president and senator, he demonstrated his faith in the voters of the Granite State by announcing he was already pulling up stakes and heading down to South Carolina where he hopes to undergo a resurrection that will push him on to victory. Sadly, I think his hopes are extremely forlorn as his time to run should have been back in 2016 but President Obama told him, “No, it was not his turn.”
Many believe that Obama made a devil’s deal with Hillary Clinton, his fiercest opponent in 2008 who then became his secretary of state. Both of them were aware where the skeletons the others had buried were and so for her loyalty about not disclosing HIS skeletons, he would support her to be his successor.
At the time NO one thought Hillary could not win the presidency and so she looked unstoppable, especially when someone everyone considered a buffoon, Donald J. Trump, won the GOP nomination.
Woefully for her, she took the entire process for granted and much like Sen. John McCain back in 2008, did not run in a number of places, believing they were either in the bag or that they were unwinnable and so left them for the Donald to travel to, hold rallies, and push his ideas for making America great again.
No matter what the Democrats claim or what sad sacks every cable news channel rounds up and puts on TV, there are far more of us who LIKE what President Trump is doing than are turned off by what he says or does. I mean, look at the guy- under assault for the past three years with daily anal exams and other probing looks into every orifice the man and his family possesses; who the hell would not be flipping angry?
Currently, we are enjoying the best economy any of us has seen in several decades, especially nothing over the past 18-20 years. This means that the economic gains we saw under Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton were nothing compared to what we are now seeing so enough already. Give the man credit.
I know who the heck I am voting for as does my wife, kids, many of my friends, neighbors, hell, my employees. We like what we are seeing and anyone who says the economy is not good or that they can do better is full of way too much fecal matter and in need of a good physic. Castor oil, anyone?
Yet, we know we have loads of work to do before November which means we are down in the trenches ready to repel the enemy back to whence they came. It is not going to be easy, no one is deluding themselves, we know it is going to be one of the ugliest campaign seasons we have seen in our lifetimes but so what? If we are not willing to fight, then we deserve to walk beneath the yoke.
Join me tomorrow and I should have more news on the election results. You won’t want to miss my spin on them, that I can tell you. Oh, wait, did I sound like Trump? LOL. Yeah, maybe so.
See you tomorrow.
