Open Thread for July 12, 2015…Donald Trumps dissing Mexicans sends him to the head of the GOP 2016 primary polls…

Day by day with the release of every poll of the 15 or so people running for the Republican 2016

Presidential nomination we feed into one thing….

Donald  Trump is now either in the second spot or LEADING

The reason for his meteoric rise is two fold

First…. his constant giving access to the media

Second….. his constant imploring that Mexicans are surging over the U.S.  Southern border

They aren’t….

The actual numbers of illegals coming across the border has DROPPED DRAMATICALLY

But that isn’t. Stopping the guy who peddled the bullshit about President Obama’s birth certificate

(he’s already mentioned that)

That SO MANY Republican could buy into his media grabbing comments is , well, scary

But I’m NOT surprised

As the reality hat America IS  in the 21st Century sinks in

Some people have grown more worried

They can’t deal with the fact that country elected this black looking guy (he’s actually mixed)

with Hussein as a middle name….

On top of that  people have lost their minds and want to get rid of the Confederate flag?

Oh, and the Obamacare thing won’t go away!

So all this…..and More…. Seems to have made a Rich New York media hound

The Pied Piper for the Republican ‘s right now

and he is keeping the media feed with more and more bullshit falsehood ‘s  about


Undocumented people don’t vote right?


The other Latino’s and Hispanic’s

Who CAN vote?

I don’t think they are gonna forget the Republicans  has supported this guy….

  1. If your question is “Why are we talking about the meltdown?”, the answer is because it is much more interesting than discussing whether Trump’s lead is in the margin of error.

  2. Sorry DSD your trying to be “fair” about this C matter doesn’t cut it with me.

    If you think digging into the personal lives of posters here to make some kind of rebuttal to some innocuous remarks is equal to the back and forth banter here,well you and I aren’t on the same wavelength.

    I don’t know you,likely never will,except for our occasional exchanges here,but NOTHING you could do or say about me would EVER cause me to go to the lengths that C did.Thats simply WEIRD.

    Indeed, It’s really worse that the banned guy from the Lone Star state did here.He was just some goofball blowing his mouth off.Here we have someone going to great lengths and spending much time to disparage the character of someone not in the public sphere because he allegedly called him a name and is “unfair” to his saintly Republicans.

    Quite bluntly,that is

    BULLSHIT of the highest order.

    Indeed the more I have thought about this the more distasteful I find his behavior.I don’t for ONE minute think he was “defending” himself.He was angrily trying to personally destroy a poster here because he didn’t like him.Thats contemptible.

    What was he “defending” himself from?

    The fact that he was caught with his you know what out by trying to play silly ass name game and was being ribbed about it?

    Think about that.

  3. I am struck by several of the comments in Corey’s 2:45:

    “In addition to offering false broad negative generalities about Republicans” – no punishment can be too great for that crime

    “Offered many posts which talk about how important he is” – funny – I can’t recall one. I always appreciated Keith’s insights on public figures where he often had inside scoop, like how they treated their staff. I thought his insights added substantially to the value of this blog; you can’t get that insight elsewhere. I never felt that Keith was bragging, even though his analysis was as good or better than anyone else here.

  5. Trump is now at 57% favorable 40 unfavorable among Republicans in a new ABC/Washington Post poll.

    In May the same poll had Trump at only 23% favorable in the GOP and 65% unfavorable.

    I’ve never seen such a swing. Trump ain’t going away anytime soon.

  6. No Trump NEEDS to keep at it….

    Everyday he crowds out the other’s helps Democrats (Hillary)…

    A piece coming up on him and another guy who hit as hard as he is doing and fell flat on his face…

  7. Good morning from California – lots of activity the last few days regarding something in my past – didn’t get to read all of the comments, but I can tell you there were inaccuracies.

    Right now I have a house full of guests, so I can’t spend more time – but will be back next week. Have a good weekend.

  8. Hey Mac?
    If you’re around?
    I WILL have a post later on the Greek settlement fallout for Merkel and Germany….

  9. Yep.

    From BI: “Greece needs to leave the euro right now”

    “Even Germany’s finance minister, Wolfgang Schaeuble, confirmed this thought on German radio Thursday morning, saying unequivocally that debt forgiveness was “not possible” for a country still inside the euro. In the same breath, Schaeuble acknowledged that it was unclear whether Greece would be able to restore the country’s finances without an exit. He went on to say that a temporary Grexit, therefore, “would perhaps be the better way for Greece.”

  10. We might have to take back our Criticism of James Headline Writing .hes got nothing on this one

    From Political Wite,

    “Trump has apparently lost Hispanic vote”

    NO? WOW!

  11. I saw that. In other news I “apparently” won’t be marrying Charlize Theron.

    Both are severe understatement!

  12. Yes Jack, “Trump has apparently lost Hispanic vote” is more obvious than “Hillary IS Human”.

    Although I did hear Trump say that Mexicans love him.

  13. … if that Mexican-American abrazo around the neck of el Donaldo gets too warm, close and cuddly, think of the dangers to Trump’s new-found base ! ;–)

    No doubt his new-found amigo, the Meanest Sheriff in America (whom Mexican-Arizonans also love so dearly), is just waiting for that moment to jump in from the sidelines to seize his base.

  14. PPP Virginia poll 7/16/15….

    PPP’s newest Virginia poll finds Jeb Bush leading the Republican primary field in the state with 18%, followed by Donald Trump and Scott Walker at 14%, and Ben Carson also in double digits at 10%. Rounding out the top ten that’s become important in the context of the upcoming debates are Mike Huckabee at 8%, Marco Rubio at 7%, and Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, and Rand Paul at 5%. Missing the cut for the top ten are Bobby Jindal at 3%, Rick Perry at 2%, Jim Gilmore, Lindsey Graham, John Kasich, and Rick Santorum at 1%, and George Pataki at less than 1%.
    On the Democratic side Hillary Clinton is dominant. She gets 64% to 14% for Bernie Sanders, 8% for Jim Webb, 5% for Lincoln Chafee, and 2% for Martin O’Malley. Clinton has 79% support from African Americans, is over 60% with liberals, moderates, men, women, younger voters, and seniors, and is over 50% with whites, Hispanics, and middle aged voters..
