Post GOP Debate Commentaries

I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record when it comes to Trump:  That I don't care for the guy personally, but he's the only one in the Pachyderm Parade going for the Immigration Jugular.  Whereas, everyone else is quibbling about how they'd "...make the trains run on time" better than a Queen Hillary, or Premier Bernie would.

 The Diplomad points out that "...Trump is setting the parameters for discussion in this election."

Mark Steyn's made similar observations, especially about "Jeb!" being the $100 million Bush Leaguer.

Firebrand Ann Coulter thinks it's time for the other [GOP] candidates to drop out.

I would like to disagree with Miss Coulter, especially if any of the other "more palatable" candidates decides to stiffen their Immigration Vertebrae.  But since this hasn't happened yet--and doesn't appear that it's going to happen--like it or not...

...we may see Trump being the "last elephant standing" in the GOP Primary Stampede.


  1. if any candidate did stiffen his anti-immigrant position at this point, I would have to suspect he wasn't serious about it and was just saying anything to get elected. By this time, they are all on record. Any change should be regarded as "positioning" to better stab us all in the back later.

    1. Good point. Now that you mention it, I'd be leery of any candidate's "change of heart" this late in the game.
