Well, gentle readers, I’m back, talkin’ about next year’s Presidential election, which is 445 days away. A lot can happen in 445 days, but I’m still clear about a couple of things.
HILLARY CLINTON CANNOT WIN AND SHOULD NOT RUN
I have previously stated that Hillary Chillary cannot win the Presidency in 2016, and that Joe Biden should be the Democrat to lose the White House. It’s fitting and proper, and makes sense. Why suffer? In the latest Quinnipiac polls in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania – three key states in the presidential election – Joe Biden does well – particularly since he isn’t even a declared candidate in the race. Biden does very well in matchups against the Republican knucklehead du jour, Hairball Trump. But against Jeb in those three states, neither Joe nor Hillary beats Jeb. So unless Donald Trump runs as a third party candidate – which the Republican Party will pay him not to do – Jeb wins, as predicted.
TRUMP TOWERS TODAY BUT TANKS TOMORROW
It’s just a question of time before he’s a distant memory. I’ll give him another 60 days, maybe even 90, but then voters will begin to be a bit more serious. The interesting question will be: how much will it cost the Republican partyRepublican party to be rid of El Donaldo the Trumpeter? Gotta cost at least a cool mill – maybe two. It’ll be fun watching how they try to hide it. His ‘candidacy’ has been performance art all along, and he’ll expect to be paid for the performance. Eh?
THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR IN THE RACE WON’T BE WHAT YOU EXPECT
Yesterday’s issues: Obamacare, Bengazi and the IRS – won’t resurface since people have such short attention spans. Today’s issues: opening trade with embassy in Cuba, the nuclear deal with Iran and immigration – won’t be the key issues that will sway voters as we get closer to election time. What will be the key issue in the election? That varies according to the candidate. If it’s Hillary vs Jeb, for Hill there will be a plethora of issues regarding integrity, the Clinton Foundation and whether or not she’s a good grandmother. For Jeb it will be getting past his brother’s mission accomplished missteps and having to pledge not to repeat them. That shouldn’t be hard for Jeb. The Jeb as Satan devil will promise anything to get his way. And if I get my wish and it’s Joe Biden? Who cares? He’ll just be Biden the mouthfun to watch.
You heard it here first.
The only thing I’m sure of at this moment is that NOBODY knows what is going to happen next with this new government – I don’t even think they know. So there’ll be lots of ‘stay tuned’ messages for the next, oh say six to twelve months? Oh my Gawd…
Well, fodder for the mill..fodder for the mill.,.
