That was the phrase of a weight loss guru in the 90s or thereabouts.....it applies to this year's Presidential race. The facts are this is like no Presidential election seen in decades!
The problem for me is that I see obfuscation, ignoring-the-facts, and a lot more from the media and the political parties. They are refusing to "re-frame" this election in to what it is....still trying to make this the samo-samo we have been subjected to for those decades.
THIS IS NEW TERRITORY FOLKS.......AND IT IS REAL!
The stalwart so-called conservative party, the GOP, has suddenly been forced to come face-to-face with a new leader. A leader they can neither control, nor ignore. Their dilemma, as folks who have been in charge for lo these many elections, is profound! They seem to be stuck at this point in the mode of trying to make the new "Trumpism" fit the party mold......IT DOES NOT! The "Trumpism" is the NEW GOP.....voters completely revolting against the GOP which first could not win, and then when they did, projected a DEM-Lite image of action.
In addition, there are millions of DEMs who are finding the Trump approach of "bomb them" to be fine as long as he follows thru on removing the old political norms.....the REAL problem!
Trump is not a miracle-man....he is the anti-Christ of politics. He represents the majority view, in my opinion, of less government, and less Washington in EVERYTHING!!!!!
We shall see how this plays out....but, one thing I know for sure....the old line DEMs and GOPs will fight for their territory any way they can......and that may well include the most stringent of the GOP placing a 3rd party candidate to sabotage Trump, just to give the election to Hillary and maintain, for this election cycle, the old line pols.
Time will tell....but, for me, Trump is the answer, flawed as it may be!
