The Republican establishment is having an anxiety attack because Donald Trump leads the pack in this presidential race. Here is why: While Jeb Bush blew $35 million of other people's money on TV ads that turn off voters, Trump has not done one ad. Instead, he speaks for the American people. Last night he issued a press release.
"If anyone needed more evidence of why the American people are suffering at the hands of their own government, look no further than the budget deal announced by Speaker Ryan. In order to avoid a government shutdown, a cowardly threat from an incompetent President, the elected Republicans in Congress threw in the towel and showed absolutely no budget discipline.
"The American people will have to absorb higher deficits, greater debt, less economic liberty and more corporate welfare. Congress cannot seem to help itself in bending to every whim of special interests. How can they face their constituents when they continue to burden our children and grandchildren with debts they will never be able to repay? Our government is failing us, so we must do something about it. Who knows how bad things will be when the next administration comes in and has to pick up the pieces?
"The only special interest not being served by our government is the American people. It is time we imposed budget discipline by holding the line on spending, getting rid of waste, fraud and abuse, and by taking on our debt. To do these things, we need a President who can lead the fight to hold Congress and the rest of government accountable. Together, we can Make America Great Again."If Trump is nominated, we might lose the Senate and -- gasp -- the House?
Paul Ryan just gave the House away. Democrats control it.
Trump leads the Republican race because he leads.
