I've seen this cycle many times before. It ain't my first political rodeo. Voters typically want what they perceived to be lacking in the previous candidate.
After Richard Nixon...who resigned in disgrace...we got the ultra-clean peace loving Jimmy Carter. How did that work out for us? Not well according to most, although history may soften his legacy.
These days, most...if not all are exceptionally unhappy with any form of government, state or federal. So when an outsider comes in...especially a screaming anti-everything candidate who criticizes every present day movement and politician...he curries favor with the voters.
And Donald Trump certainly fits the bill. He screams at the top of lungs at what is wrong, and that he will certainly fix it...but he lacks a detailed plan, or remedy to fix anything. Just promises to fix everything.
But how, Donald? Give me one nuanced answer...just one detailed plan to fix anything. And stop insulting our...strike that...my intelligence by promising the moon without a space program to get us there.
"I'll build a fence and Mexico will pay for it." How?
"I'll wrangle up four million illegal aliens and deport them." What, are you kidding me? (He is decidedly not)
I understand the voting electorates desire for an outsider to come in on his white horse and save the town...but this ain't the movies, and this ain't my first rodeo.
Eventually the noise will quiet, the field will reduce, and the American people are going to demand more than a circus tent evangelical preacher.
We know what's wrong...what we don't know (and apparently you don't either)...is how you are going to "fix it."
We are waiting....but we won't wait for long.
In the words of Aaron Sorkin..."these are serious times, and we need a serious candidate---and your fifteen minutes are up."
We are waiting sir.
And that's the world...The "World According to Kimba."
Thanks for reading.
Extra credit? Here are some very un-presidential off the cuff remarks from Mr. Trump...
“You know, it really doesn’t matter what the media write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.”
"The U.S. will invite El Chapo, the Mexican drug lord who just escaped prison, to become a U.S. citizen because our "leaders" can't say no!"
"I will build a great wall-and nobody builds a wall like me, believe me...and I'll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall along our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words on that."
"Laziness is a trait in blacks...black guys counting my money...I hate it!!" "The only guys I want counting my money are little short guys that wear yamakas every day."
