Election is not that hard to figure out




(I would rather look at her than at her father.)

In a dispatch about a mock student convention at Washington and Lee University, New York Times reporter Nicholas Fandos wrote:
Kevin Ortiz, one of the convention’s directors of political research and a senior from Charlotte, N.C., said on Thursday that no election cycle was easy to predict, but that this year had been particularly hard, largely thanks to one man: Mr. Trump.
The reality television star’s presence in the race has called into question some of the indicators that students here have traditionally relied on — and that might have traditionally led to the nomination of a more moderate politician like former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida or Gov. John Kasich of Ohio.
“It has made it a hundred times more difficult,” Mr. Ortiz said. “It is tough for us to kind of see, when does conventional wisdom, if ever, reset itself going forward, or is this cycle so crazy now that we are supposed to expect the unexpected?”
Actually, this election is pretty simple to figure out. The people are upset with Washington and want an outsider to clean things up. The conventional wisdom out of Washington has led to costly wars, high insurance premiums and a piss-poor economy. People now reject Washington's conventional wisdom because it is echo chamber dumb.

Democrats likely will chose the communist Bernie Sanders who has been in Washington most of the last quarter-century but has been ineffectual. Their grievance is that Obama compromised. They want full-throttled communism.

Republicans likely will chose Trump, a man who turned a million-dollar real estate company in Queens into a multi-national, multi-billion-dollar operation that employs 34,000 people. Elitists cannot figure out why the public is willing to go with a fellow with "no" experience. The fact is, at 69, Trump has more experience than all his rivals combined. He built stuff, they regulated it.

This is the simplest election to figure out when one gets out of Washington and looks at what a trainwreck the economy is -- and the rise of Mexican gangs, and Muslim terrorists is not making people any happier.

But you have to be outside the bubble to see this.

  1. In 2007 an illegal alien with 2 SS numbers obtained a 400G nothing down loan to buy my mother's house in SoCal.Were it not for the second SS number that loan would have been sold to Lehman Bros by the local bank within 24 hrs,an officer of said bank informed me,hoping to impress me with his employer's careful handling of its own money.. The house then fell in value by 50% in one month as the recession hit, people lost jobs ,and loans became impossible to get .To solve this problem, created by a kind of hog like greed that had afflicted the banker class,further incentivised to crime than ususal by a political class lusting for votes, the Republicans offered an angry old man and a clueless appearing ingenue, the Dems a smooth talking empty suit with an Ivy degree and zero experience, but,as a livery driver friend assured me "would get himself some good advisors", which he did not. Now this choice is regretted. But everything is regretted sooner or later,as the Roman satirist Juvenal wrote 2000 years ago. Yet choices have to be made, and for me no matter who is the R choice ,I'm taking it because I would rather regret him than HC or Bloomberg,who,living as I do in NY, I have both seen close up. Trump has revealed an alarming NYT like shallowness to hit GW for Iraq and I know from the experience of New York with Nelson Rockefeller, a liberal Republican like Trump, who created the welfare state here and spent the place broke, he,Trump,will be regretted. But better to regret your own mistakes than be subject to regretting those of your enemies.

  2. There is a lot of anger out here. Dems hate that BO did not go far enough. Repub hate that those they voted for went Dem. What a hell of a mess.

  3. "Elitists cannot figure"

    How in the bloody hell can you write Trump as an opponent of elitists? Here's a guy that inherited more money than most people ever see, cheated business partners, payed 10 cents on the dollar to creditors in bankruptcy, and was a liberal Clinton lover right up to the time he decided to run for President.

    How many of those 34,000 employees who prepare the food, wash the sheets, and make up the rooms in Trump's hotels are illegal aliens, Don?

    I swear, a glorified gambling house owner sure does know how to bring in the suckers.

    1. You say Trump cheated his business partners. Can you give me an example, or are you just repeating rumors or lies you heard somewhere? I honestly am interested in knowing if what you claim is true.

    2. Dennis - is there any way I could make you scream louder? Please tell me. I have been a Republican since 1980 when I was 14 (sympathizer, not voter) and right now I am at the point that if there is any way to make every fat-assed, sit on his ass, go along to get along, Republican who you seem to be to scream as his soul has been ripped from his flesh then I want to know how to make that happen.

      Because the "establishment" Republicans have been as much use as a canoe in a dirigible.

    3. That is I could not vote when I was 14. I have been voting Republican ever since. And I have not ever heard of so much Stockholm Syndrome than the national Republicans when it comes to the Democrats or the MSM saying how much they dislike the GOP.

      Criminey, the national GOP are a bunch of panty-weters. And then they wonder why people go elsewhere.

  4. The DC bubble and the Bos-Wash corridor have the power to cloud men's minds, and boy, howdy, it has. Big-time!

  5. The cited article from the NYT is about a mock convention of college students. The NYT reporter is perplexed at the results that these know nothing know-it-alls produced. Some of us could care less.
