Today’s Good News And Bad News
From Our Local Political Junkie We’ll Call “Cincy Dave”
BAD NEWS FOR TRUMP
According to an article in Politico, almost half of Republican insiders think Trump has already lost, as opposed to only 28% of Democrats. Clearly, the Democrats are not getting too overconfident. They know it’s still a long way to the end and more email dumps are coming from Putin and the KGB.
TRUMP ADMITS DEFEAT
Well, not exactly, but he did come closer than any other presidential candidate ever has. He admitted to the possibility of defeat, and even discussed what he would do after the election if he loses (take a long vacation). Usually, even when candidates know that they are going to get slaughtered, they try to keep up appearances right to the last minute, never publicly even considering the possibility of losing, while saying upbeat things such as “I believe we will win,” blah, blah, blah. Although his comments go against basic election strategy, Trump continues to do things his own way, and against all advice.
TRUMP SAYS CLINTON CAN ONLY WIN PENNSYLVANIA BY CHEATING
Pennsylvania has voted for the Democratic candidate in the last 6 presidential elections and Hillary is way ahead in polls in the Keystone State, so this sounds like another excuse for losing.
HILLARY RELEASES 2015 TAX RETURN
This would normally be no news at all, and it really isn’t this time either. The only purpose of her announcement is to again draw attention to the fact that The Donald refuses to release any of his tax returns. No one this side of Rush Limbaugh expects to find anything incriminating in Hillary’s taxes, even though a lot of people will probably try. Tim Kaine also released about 10 years worth of his taxes. Muckrakers will be digging through these too, but you can bet that the Clinton campaign covered that well before he was selected as a running mate.
TRUMP OK WITH TRYING U.S. CITIZENS IN MILITARY COURTS
In an interview, Trump said that he is fine with trying U.S. citizens in military courts and sending them to Guantanamo. It sounds like The Donald needs some help understanding the U.S. constitution and citizens’ constitutional rights. We know the address of a former Professor of Constitutional Law who lives in Washington, D.C. that might be willing to help him on this. He may have some free time after Jan. 20.
TRUMP’S “COME TO JESUS” MEETING WITH THE RNC
WILL PRESIDENT CLINTON STICK WITH MERRICK GARLAND?
Harry Reid thinks so. Although Liberals would like someone much younger (so he or she would last longer) poor Mr. Garland has waited longer than any Supreme Court nominee in history, without even getting a Senate hearing, thanks to Mitch McConnell. It would be even more unfair to him for Madam President to name someone else after so long. McConnell and the Senate Republicans have no real objection to Garland himself (other than the fact that he is not Justice Scalia’s identical twin); it’s just that they don’t want the president to accomplish anything at all. McConnell said recently: “One of my proudest moments was when I looked Barack Obama in the eye and I said, ‘Mr. President, you will not fill the Supreme Court vacancy,’ ” McConnell apparently doesn’t have a lot to be proud of in his life if more obstruction is his proudest moment. His second proudest moment was apparently making sure that Obama was a one-term president. The only other thing he is proud of is when he was a kid and locked his mother out of the house.
TODAY’S MEANINGLESS POLLS
All of today’s polls are in swing states except Texas which is reliably Republican. Polls for all of the swing states show Hillary leading. There comes a time when meaningless polls aren’t so meaningless anymore. When all the different polls are consistently showing the same candidate ahead, they eventually become a self-fulfilling prophecy. For the one who is behind, donors stop donating, money dries up, volunteers stop volunteering, enthusiasm vanishes and people stay home on election day. Although it is early, this seems to already be occurring. Maybe something will happen to turn it around, but it would have to be something really big. Something like proof that Hillary did co-found ISIS when she was first lady or that she really did kill Vince Foster to conceal their love affair. Manufactured scandals haven’t worked so far, so muckrakers need to get lucky soon.
