GOP & The Trump Problem
But obviously Donald Trump has made me make an exception.
Here's the reality about Trump. Right now, he is the Republican Party. I know its pretty shitty that after all the real leaders that party has had over the years, the Party of Lincoln has been hijacked by Trump.
The real problem with Trump isn't just that he says such stupid things and gets all kinds of negative attention for the GOP brand that will not likely rinse off before next November.
Its not even that he may decide to take his ball and run as an independent in November either, although I acknowledge that is a major concern for the GOP leadership.
The real problem for the GOP with Trump is that so many people right now actually LIKE him in their party. That is a scary thing for the GOP when you think about it because it exposes all the idiots and racists in the GOP. Basically everything we liberal members of the Democratic Party like to point and laugh at every chance we get.
I know, its kinda messed up of us that we do that, but hell its your fault. Clean your house and we won't think that.
And so many in the GOP are partially at fault for the Trump Factor. So many people say "well he'll never be the nominee anyway, so why worry?" Well aside from the fact that he exposes all the nutcases in your party, the problem is Iowa is just around the corner and he's still the front-runner in a crowded field. This guy could win Iowa for the mere fact that you still have a ton of other candidates running.
So the name with the most ID wins in a big field unless someone really organized can go in and win the caucuses. Except the only candidate that has the organizational experience to pull something like hat off is well, Rand Paul. The Pauls do really well in caucuses. Well I should say, his dad did.
Rand is running in the low single digits right now. Somewhere behind a basket of fruit and a pee-stained mattress.
Only now, this late in the game, has the GOP establishment started any kind of push-back and it took Trump saying some really stupid shit that would make Hitler proud in order to make things happen. Seriously, the establishment had NOTHING to say when he basically said the same thing about Mexicans. Your silence actually spoke volumes about your party.
Because Trump speaks for a larger part of the Republican Party than they are comfortable admitting.
And that is the real Trump problem for the GOP.
