Ad–just a question. There was no VOX last week? I checked in about 10:30, and there was no VOX. Thought I was too late! (which is the story of my life).

Right glenn, that was my bad! I had planned on hosting Vox last Friday night but got tied up!

I still think Trump is going to run into an iceberg.

Ad–no problem.You deserve a break! Just glad to know I wasn’t losing my mind, which is always a possibility!

Maybe Trump can get away with his bully crap with the cretins who come to his events but I don’t see how he can function in a real election

Did you all see the Financial Times interview today in which Charles Koch condemns both Trump and Cruz for their stance on Muslims.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Yeah, I saw that Murph. Koch is disappointed that he can’t control Trump or Cruz, is how I took it.
escribacat

Murph–no, missed that. The Kochs like Muslims?

escrib – Trump is like a Titanic running into another Titanic.

Trump is like an alcoholic — drunk on power right now. He’s not entirely in control of himself.

Scat–From the headline I read (and I only read the headline), the Kochs are disappointed that they can’t seem to buy the primary even with the obscene amount of money they’re spending.
glenn

The Kochs have embarked on an all out ongoing PR campaign to say “Evil is the new black”. Trying to soften their truly evil image.
AdLib 7 days ago
Whereas Sleezy Cruz is in control of himself…if only he weren’t such a repulsive dork, which he can’t hide.
escribacat

Glenn–yes that was the gist of the article.
escribacat

The Kochs regard the Trump/Cruz approach as counter-productive making the war on Islamic terrorism more difficult.

It’s scary when two candidates make the Koch’s look rational.

Escrib – I like your description of Trump as like an alcoholic. He gets drunk though on his own homemade moonshine and surrounds himself with idiots who laugh at the horrible things he does. He has no awareness of how the majority of Americans see him and his horrible statements.

Scat–Trump is so drunk on power that he’s willing to take protesters’ coats away from them. What an awful human being he is, and his supporters are even worse. I was appalled to see those trump supporters literally rip that sign out of two protesters’ hands when they were just sitting there. And then the incident with the coat when trump’s supporters cheered! These people are so out of control, it’s beyond redemption!

They are a classic pitchfork mob, a rabble, roused up by this demagogue. I’ve never seen anything like it.

There is more and more about Trump that reeks of fascism.
MurphTheSurf3

And how funny is it that Ted Cruz could genuinely be ineligible to be President because he may not be a natural born citizen! All of his supporters were on blogs for the past two elections attacking Obama for not being American!
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad, do you think Trump really lives in a bubble and can’t see how vile he is? A lot of journalists are starting to call him on it finally.
escribacat

It’s true that someone who is “drunk” really doesn’t realize how they come off. I wonder if he has experienced a mental break or something….
escribacat

Scat–I agree. I’ve never seen anything like it and I’ve been around a while. It reminds me of the Vietnam war protests; the way our country is being torn apart by people who won’t even try to listen to reason. They are “right” and everyone else is wrong; it just absolutely astounds me!

Everyone makes fun of “political correctness” but what it means is that you should behave in a civilized manner, even if you aren’t civilized. These people are not civilized and have been given permission by Trump to behave like barbarians.

escrib – The wealthy live in a bubble. Celebrities live in a bubble. Combine the two with a Presidential candidate? Trump doesn’t even know how to eat pizza, he uses a knife and fork. He says “The blacks love me.” All politicians are in a bubble of some kind but Trump is so oblivious to reality, he doesn’t know what the majority of Americans think of him or what the blowback of an all out racist and sexist campaign in a primary will do to him in a general election.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–I read another headline (I try not to read too much about Cruz because he just creeps me out), that says that Cruz’s mother was registered to vote in Canada; thereby making her a Canadian citizen at the time Cruz was born. I guess she could have had dual citizenship; but I didn’t think that was possible. Wasn’t that the “glitch” with the “swiss miss” when she tried to become a Swiss citizen?
glenn

Good point Ad. When he says The blacks love me or the Hispanics love me, do you suppose he actually believes it?

Trump spent the night last night in this pattern. Sprinkle statements of disdain for various policies, and ideas with chatty mutual admiration between himself and the crowd and personal attacks on his foes in either party, with responses to protestors that further egg on the crowd….that is his stump speech.

Murph — and no substance whatsoever. And the mob is fine with that.
