Was it same election?
Jeez, Professor Gitz. Which election did you watch last year?
To assert that Donald Trump was the only one of the GOP candidates who wouldn’t have won in a walk takes imagination to new heights. Do you really think that Bobby Jindal or Rand Paul or Scott Walker or the Huckster could have won? And how about the empty suit twins Ben Carson (think Dan Quayle in the third grade) or Little Marco? Seriously? And lastly, Senator Cruz, the first coming of Tom Cotton but without the military chops, and the ever-scintillating Governor Kasich?
Each of these candidates in the general election would have had to defend policy positions that might not have been exactly appealing to the electorate at large. Only Trump could, and did, operate solely on personality.
No one including his current staff even today know his positions on many of the issues facing the United States. He doesn’t know either. That’s a very frightening reality but totally unsurprising.
We all need to remember that incompetence is not grounds for impeachment or removal under Amendment 25. Keep in mind too that there’s another election coming and changes can take place in Congress that will effectively neuter The Donald. But first the Democrats have to lose Ms. Pelosi and come up with solutions to issues that matter more in the grand scheme than who goes to which bathroom.
Good luck to us all. Only 42½ months to go, if we last that long. DENNIS BARRY
