Want to know why Donald Trump is still high in the polls? Read this WJBC forum commentary to see what the “establishment” thinks. He’s not even close to the real reason, but it’s good for laughs. This is exactly what the GOP thinks too – and it’s why the Trump attacks are backfiring.
Bill Fike: Let me fill you in.
The GOP gained control of the House in 2010 to stop the Obama agenda. Even though the House controls the “purse” of the country, the GOP has not used it to stop anything.
The GOP gained control of the Senate in 2014. Before the new members were even seated, the GOP pushed through a massive spending bill that violated everything GOP candidates campaigned on to get elected.
John Boehner and Mitch McConnell are traitors in the eyes of the voters who put them in power.
Rush Limbaugh didn’t tell them. Ditto Mark Levin and Sean Hannity.
The people aren’t stupid.
$18 TRILLION in debt, Global Warming nonsense used to increase electricity prices, millions more people on Food Stamps, illegal immigrants flooding the country, ISIS allowed to murder Christians and anybody who isn’t Muslim enough, a REALLY bad deal with Iran, the Department of Justice dishing out anything but justice, more than 90 million people out of the work force, IRS targeting perceived enemies, should I go on Bill? I could, the list of fundamental transformations with the GOP blessing is practically endless.
We know the GOP are feckless clowns who bow to campaign contributors. We know they want open borders because their contributors want open borders. We know they secretly love Obamacare because they make lots of money off the corporations raking in healthcare bucks while destroying the whole system for everybody else. Again, I could go on.
Donald Trump and Ben Carson are leading in the polls because they aren’t establishment GOP!
Hey Bill – explain why ANYBODY would vote GOP please. 7 in 10 people now say the country is headed the wrong direction. I haven’t seen any polls praising the GOP for changing the direction. They appear to be marching straight toward our destruction with the other bozos.
Get it yet Bill? Probably not, the GOP isn’t learning a dang thing from Trump’s rise. I expect you won’t either.
(No I’m not a Trump voter. I just appreciate him shaking things up.)
