As hard as Jeb Bush tries to be significant in this Nomination Campaign, HE JUST DOESN’T GET IT.
In one of Bush’s most recent speeches since the Moslem attack on Paris, it was filled with ideas and suggestions for how to deal with the Islamist threat to our Secular Societies.
BUT AMONGST THE PLETHORA OF HIS WORDS . . . all I came away with from Bush’s speech – was how Bush would lead the world by forming a COALITION to take on the Islamists. BUT THAT’S NOT HOW A LEADER LEADS – Certainly not an American leader.
Even George W Bush, who was hardly a great American President, showed leadership when he said from the site of 9/11, while the embers were still warm . . .
“I can hear you! I can hear you! The rest of the world hears you! And the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon.”
On September 20, 2001 . . . George W Bush made it clear in his Statement to the world, in a speech to a Joint Session of Congress . . .
“Either you are with us . . . or you’re with the TERRORISTS”.
REAL LEADERS LEAD . . . they don’t wait to see how the winds blow, before taking action, much less than waiting for the rest of the world to give them approbation.
AND FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM AND WORLD SECURITY has nothing to do with building committees. BUT HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH DOING WHAT MUST BE DONE . . . PERIOD!
And what would Jeb Bush do if the rest of the world gave him the SHORT-SHRIFT, after politely asking with cap-in-hand for the world to help him form a coalition, leaving him and America to hold the BAG all by themselves?
TRUMP IS NOT MY FAVORITE CANDIDATE . . . BUT:
The reason why Trump is resonating so well with the American People, and not just with Republicans, is that he really says what he thinks, and REFUSES to place the future of his country at the whim of the United Nations or anyone else.
HE LEADS . . . and never suggests that America’s future and the FREEDOMS America stands for, should be decided by anyone but Americans.
TRUMP IS GIVING THE FINGER TO EVERYONE WHO BASHES AND ABUSES THE USA:
Not only is Trump telling all Americans what they can expect if he becomes the President of the USA, he is putting the entire world on NOTICE – that if he wins the Oval Office . . . America will be coming back with a vengeance, and the rest of the world better play nice or find another game.
That says an awful lot about why people support Trump, and as hard as it is for me to support him with enthusiasm, HE MAKES A VERY COMPELLING CASE FOR HIS NOMINATION.
And as the Nomination Campaign Continues, and we see and hear MORE from all the Candidates, our preferences change as well, as we VET the people we want, and the people we do not want.
HERE IS WHERE I STAND TODAY:
CRUZ . . . is a Patriot, a man of Integrity, a man of Courage, and a true Constitutionalist who can verbalize the greatness of America better than anyone else. He is also not a man frightened to say what he thinks, like it or not.
TRUMP . . . Bombastic, In Your Face, a Narcissist, and a man who also says what he thinks, but says far too much for his own good. But as it stands – Trump has earned his place in the POLLS.
RUBIO . . . Smart, Articulate . . . But too cool for school. That said; I would support him as my third choice.
AS FOR THE REST . . .
Ben Carson is a nice guy with great intentions, but he’s far too low key, too slow to respond on his feet, and far too much all-over-the board, which has nothing to do with how the media has attacked him.
Carly Fiorina is my biggest disappointment. It seems to me, that as smart as she really is, she is too contrived, too glib, and lacking in real sincerity.
Jeb Bush is learning that there are no presumptive Presidents, regardless of family connections. He seems to be a decent man who would make a great policy wonk in some one else’s Cabinet. But, if he won the nomination, I assume he would be an adequate President when America needs a BARN BURNER.
John Kasich is a great Liberal with some Conservative leanings.
Chris Christie belongs on the Jersey Shore.
And then there are the other players making noise, all of whom bring something to the table, but not nearly enough to give them a second look.
PS . . . As America, with a population of well more than 300-Million, is tearing itself apart about bringing in 10,000-Syrian Immigrants over a period of time, because of a lack of proper screening, while Canada, because of the recently elected Quebec Dilettante Prime Minister (Justin Trudeau) is RUSHING to bring into Canada, with a population of slightly more than just 30-Million people . . . 25,000-THOUSAND UN-VETTED Moslem SYRIANS, (that’s even if they are even Syrians) within the next SIX WEEKS.
AS AMERICANS . . . HOW DOES THIS MAKE YOU FEEL?
AND WHAT WAS JUST MADE PUBLIC . . . the bulk of these 25-THOUSAND Moslem Syrians will be accommodated in Cornwall Ontario, situated less than 5-MINUTES from the USA, literally a 5-Minute Motorboat Ride across the narrows of the St Lawrence River, that divides Canada and the USA.
AND TO ADD A CHERRY UPON THIS CRAP SUNDAE . . .
Between Canada and the USA, across from Cornwall Ontario and the USA, is a huge Network of Mohawk Reservations, where there is no distinction amongst the Natives between borders, which makes a great deal of money on Gambling, Illegal Cigarettes, Illegal Liquor, AND SMUGGLING OF ALL KINDS.
I KNOW THIS FOR A FACT . . . because that’s near where Anne and I have lived for many years, that the River Highway between our two countries has no bounds, and the Natives have literally no restrictions on their travels throughout their Reservations, and between the borders.
I think because of our newly elected Dilettante Prime Minister . . . America better start worrying as much about her Northern Border with Canada, as much as America worries about the Southern Border with Mexico.
