He needed to bring his best game, and I think he did. “Donald, you aren’t going to be able to insult your way to the presidency.” Bush was tough, clear and direct. He won, in part, because none of the other GOP candidates would take on the comb-over racist.
Trump also won, however, by remaining standing at the end. I therefore agree with CNN for the most part, here.
Should we be concerned about President Trump, then? I don’t think so. Not yet. By winning his party, Trump is losing his country.
But every terrorist incident strengthens his hand. (Had the Friday the Thirteenth Paris attacks happened during the election campaign, for example, Stephen Harper would have won again, hands down. I don’t think I’m alone in that view, either.)
Anyway, a key exchange here. Your views welcome, as always, in comments or in the below Highly-Scientific Poll™.
