The "Money Men" are more realistic than the journos. https://donsurber.blogspot.com/2019/10/they-dont-have-anybody-who-can-win.html John Coale, a major donor to both Bill and Hillary Clinton, was more blunt. 'They don’t have anybody who can win the general,' he said.

Quite a few of the officer class have joined with the Swamp. https://www.amgreatness.com/2019/10/19/who-the-hell-do-they-think-they-are/ Already linked but I'll give an additional recommendation "... thousands of Americans have been killed and maimed in Iraq and Afghanistan because senior officers did not object to the ruling class’s desire to use U.S. forces to settle foreign quarrels by operating in constantly replenished minefields. Living in minefields violates basic military common sense and ethics. But senior officers have prospered. Intertwined with the ruling class, they end their careers on defense contractors’ corporate boards and in villas on the golf course. .... This ex-draftee is inclined to salute them with the middle finger."

"Has anyone ever gone from the House to the White House?" Gerald Ford? Not directly, but he was never a Senator or Governor. Of course, he got in by succession not election.

Trump won't be dumped LOL "It is not how we do things in Ohio." Last time I checked, Buckeye lives in Ahia. :) :) Hey, I would vote for Ted and maybe for Lindsay. But they would lose because MSM would pollute the Low Info voters. Change my mind! Seriously, though, it's all hypothetical and personal opinion.

The accompanying GIF is a smiler .... https://donsurber.blogspot.com/2019/10/genocide-canceled-media-sad.html When President Donald John Trump said he was pulling U.S. troops from Syria, the media and the Washington Establishment predicted genocide. The blood was on his hands, they said. Once again, they were totally and completely wrong. Instead, peace broke out.

"I am prouder than ever of my vote." Me too. From a PowerLine comment: Given the threat of the “progressive” left, there is hardly any such thing as a former Trump supporter. There are, however, many, many former Romney supporters

mr/maryrose/d "Our bench is much deeper than the Democrats. Ted Cruz, Rand Paul , Crenshaw, Grassley andPence any former governor of a Red State. This belief that only Trump is the only answer or savior is terribly misguided in my opinion. Anyone can be replaced" Both of your statements are true. The reason I think Trump is central is his combative character (perhaps shared by some?) and more importantly The fact that he is well known outside politics. With GW, McCain and Mitt the media was able to throw slime. Educated voters knew better but many are not. With Trump, when accused of being racist or "literally" Hitler, low info voters could not take it to heart. He had been on their TV screens for years. The FL Gov (DeSantis?) is getting rave reviews (for example) but dishonest media attacks, in my opinion, are a wild card that might well skew the outcome. Simply because he is not a national figure. Ted and Lindsay face the same problem, plus they are Senators (talkers) not executives (doers).

JamesD 11:05 Let's include Bill's high paid speech in Moscow. And "donations" to the Clinton tax dodge. Also, don't Congressmen (and staff?) have some sort of protection from being charged with insider trading? Why?

I read somewhere recently that emoluments refers to foreign titles and one other thing that I forgot. It does not include cash money. I guess that's covered under "bribery"

Buckeye: If Trump, for whatever reason, decided he was no longer a candidate for 2020, could another "Republican" step in and win?? I'll vote a tentative "no". Which is disappointing and a bit scary ...

For TM and anyone else who missed it, the Trump org donates profits from foreign groups to the US Treasury. ABob: People are oh-so-concerned (optics or more) about the potential of Trump (who is donating his presidential salary) making a few pennies profit off the G-7? https://donsurber.blogspot.com/2019/10/trump-wont-profit-from-g-7.html The Associated Press (link) reported on February 25, 2019, "President Donald Trump’s company said on Monday that it donated nearly $200,000 to the U.S. Treasury to make good on its promise two years ago to hand over profits from foreign governments using its properties. "The Trump Organization said a check for $191,538 sent to Treasury represents profits from embassy parties, hotel stays and other foreign government spending at its Washington hotel and other properties last year. The voluntary donation is up from $151,470 sent a year ago to cover the president’s first calendar year in office. "Trump announced the donation plan before his inauguration two years ago in response to criticism that in refusing to sell off his business, people would suspect his decisions in office would be influenced by spending at his properties and not necessarily reflect the public interest."

An indication of returning sanity? Jeez, this choice shoulda been obvious months, even a couple years, ago. "We're on track for another sequel: Lesser of Two Evils II"

"But they're also thinking that the Warren/Sanders intended fracking ban would be a disaster." And the fracking ban is not all. Not by a long shot. How about spying on your political opponents using govt agencies? How about threatening businesses and forcing them to "donate" to approved "community" groups? This sh*t is real.

This is such a guilty, retro pleasure but ... David Plouffe, who is about 5 ft 3 inches tall describes in great detail why it is impossible (impossible not improbable not unlikely), impossible for Trump to win in 2016. https://youtu.be/5snOsfSv1O0 Commenter: it was on Bloomberg Politics so lucky for him no one saw it
