  1. Check out this headline in the Boston Globe: Amid Trump surge, nearly 20,000 Mass. voters quit Democratic Party.

    How strange is that?

  2. Cruz will probably take Texas.

    Trump will take most of the rest.

  3. I noticed something yesterday….

    Lots of GOP voters who were going to go with Marco Rubio are now pulling away from him. The small-hands line Rubio started spouting has done him damage, IMO.

    Also, word has gotten out that Mitch McConnell said that the GOP has plans to throw the election to Hillary “to stop Donald Trump”.

    It seems to me that a lot of GOP voters are fed up to their eyeteeth with the leadership of the GOP.

  4. A GOP that supports Trump is a GOP I don’t need.
    All the crossover dems supporting Trump is a pollution of the party.
    Talk about RINO.
    But “throwing the election to Hillary” sounds ridiculous.
    Not being a subscriber, I can’t read AOW’s link in full.

  5. Ed,
    For some reason, the Boston Globe allowed me to read that article. I’m not a subscriber to the BG.

    I recently subscribed to the NYT. For this election cycle — and, truth be told, for the book reviews (work related).

  6. The last paragraph from Erick Erickson’s Time to Prepare the Exit Strategy:

    If Trump wins the GOP nomination, Hillary Clinton is going to win the Presidency. But the GOP still has the potential to build a firewall of support for Republicans nationwide through a third party. Planning needs to get underway immediately and the GOP needs to release that they waited too late on Trump, they should not wait so long that they cannot save themselves.

    Please read the essay in its entirety.

  7. bocopro says:

    Betcha if the ballot had a “None of the Above” block, it’d win the genelec.

    I have no intention of walking over to the polling place for the Florida primary. The ballot still has Jindal, Gilmore, Huckabee, Fiorina, et al. on it. If it’s a nice day and I’m in the mood, I might stroll over and vote for Christie . . . or Huckabee.

    Prob’ly not, tho. Line’s’ll be too long.

  8. jerrydablade says:

    If Trump really is inevitable, and ‘wins’ the nomination, my blogging topics will probably change from politics to “the best way to amass cans for the coming Trumpocalypse”. I don’t know if Hillary wins if Trump is her opponent or not. I don’t think I would much care either way. I’d be willing to entertain a third party run, provided it wasn’t an establishment guy. A third party candidate would not stand a chance, but if was someone I could proudly vote FOR, I would line up to do so. Maybe the birth of a successful conservative third party in 2016 would bear fruit in 30 years or so and give our children and grandchildren a way out from what is sure to be an ugly collapse.

  9. It sure has gone south, eh?

  10. Angel says:

    I can’t imagine ANY of them as pres frankly…argg!

  11. Silverfiddle says:

    Rubio really diminished himself with all the Obama-style trash-talking, and who hired the paid screamers in the audience at the last GOP debate?

    After all the crap the GOP has pulled (support for H1B visas, zero opposition to Obama flooding the nation with illegal immigrants and unverifiable ‘refugees’ from war-torn ME lands, etc) Erik Erikson, Mitch the Mole Rat and the rest of the pasty-faced pisants pick this to finally blow it all up over?

    Can you blame people of cheering on a man who they think has a chance of doing a little smashy-smashy to the Uni-Party DC Country Club?

  12. Silverfiddle says:

    I have no idea how it will turn out here in Colorado. I think Sanders could take it for the Dems and I just don’t know on the GOP side.

    A daughter is going to the Dem caucus tonight to support Sanders, wife and son going to GOP to support Trump, and I’m staying home and playing the banjo since I’m a registered Libertarian.

  13. FB says:

    Collapse of Rubio today because he is a fraud and absentee senator.

  14. geeez2014 says:

    AOW, that’s wild….and very hard to believe, but Trump is tapping into something primal.
    I literally have to change channels now if I hear his bragging, vulgar, vindictive talking…it’s become too much to me to consider this man could run the country.
    Because he can’t.

    Yes, I was more a Rubio fan until the small hands comment; it showed something so ugly in his personality that he’s probably lost me. Unless he’s the contender finally; I will vote for a ham sandwich versus hillary.
    Erickson’s wrong; no time for a Third Party…and not enough support for Trump. Period.

    Ed, I don’t subscribe, either, and could read the article.

    Bocopro….”None of the Above” would DEFINITELY be my vote.

    jerry, if Trump wins, MY blogs will be from an insane asylum 🙂

    SF: I’m a tad surprised that your daughter’s supporting Sanders :-)!! I’ll come over to sing…”Who’s gonna dance with Sally Ann?” 🙂

  15. FB says:

    Z, they’re all ugly except the 2 guys at the bottom. Rubio even more because he has done nothing in his life and doesn’t even show up to vote. It’s pretty sad. That’s why the founding fathers didn’t want those con artists and the likes to have too much power. They knew.

  16. bunkerville says:

    Just like the Titantic, pick the music you wish to sink by. The orchestra plays on and on…… Why not Trump? Go out with some fire in the belly of the ship.

  17. Bob says:

    First I have a doctor’s appointment about thirty miles from home. When I get back, I will go to the poll and vote for Marco Rubio. It sounds like a foregone conclusion that Georgia will go for Trump, and I will never understand it, just like I could never understand why the Democrats went for Barack Obama.

    Oh, well. I will cast my vote and settle down for the inevitable, but I will not quit the system because I don’t like the candidates. That’s foolish.

  18. Silverfiddle says:

    Z: My daughter is a feminist and an independent thinker and I’m very proud of her. She does not fit neatly into any category and she has her reasons for going with Sanders. I may not agree, but I support her.

  19. FB says:

    I’m glad you support your daughter but god thinking about Bernie being elected makes me seriously ill.

  20. geeez2014 says:

    SF, well, I can’t respect her opinion but I respect her right to it, SF. I have my own views on feminism, but she’s entitled to hers. ’nuff said! And I’m sure you should be proud of her, if she’s anything like her dad 🙂

    Bob…that’s what I’d do…vote for Rubio, holding my nose, and NEVER quit the system. Though I do believe it’s quit us.

    bocopro: I’d pick GOD BLESS AMERICA….

  21. geeez2014 says:

    FB, that makes me seriously ill, too. Thankfully, it doesn’t seem he has a chance; Democrats don’t seem to care when their candidate’s put our country in serious jeopardy through stupidity regarding emails, etc. And keeping with classified clearance assistants we know did terrible stuff; probably fraud.

  22. FB says:

    Z, this election is something I’ve never seen on both sides of the aisle. It’s quite a show. Tells a lot about our society. All I want is go live in the woods.

  23. Baysider says:

    I’m with FB. Want to go live in the woods. 😅
    AOW I saw the article with the Trump signs. Tend to think there’s some of that. Wonder how many are crossover spoilers though.

  24. John M. Berger says:

    This guy explains what we are likely to see at the end of today’s primaries; like it or not.

  25. geeez2014 says:

    I think we all want to go live in the woods …. I LITERALLY change the channel the second I see Trump talking…it’s so disheartening it’s doing me in a little.
    It’s not even so much HIM but it’s now considered the NORM somehow, and that two otherwise good people who I might not have agreed with on everything but thought they were good men, Cruz and Rubio, have sunken to almost the same AWFUL level of vulgarity and cheating.

    Yes, FB, it’s QUITE a show on both sides, but the Republicans have sunken to a level I never thought possible in America. We’ve seen nutty Japanese senators wrestling on the floor, we’ve seen other ridiculous exposees, but we haven’t seen a TRUMP say the kinds of things he does and survive. Very sad.

    JUST IMAGINE, EVERYBODY: If Trump talked about what he talks about CHINA, MEXICO, FREE TRADE, A GOOD WALL, IMMIGRATION CHECKS, JOBS COMING BACK, etc etc., and did it with POWER and CIVILITY and KINDNESS ….REALLY ramming home what we need to BRING BACK AMERICA …and leaving out the vulgarities.
    A personality like his COULD and WOULD be listened to without the HORRID blowhard incivility…
    What a candidate that WOULD have made.
    Actually, it’d be Romney if he’d shown the kind of backbone he has shown since two seconds after HE LOST our country for us.

  26. geeez2014 says:

    John, I have to admit that I’ve been SAYING that here for months….have been trying to figure out how my messages are clearly being missed recently. ODD, just plain odd.
    Anyway….some friends think I ought to start a video thing like his. I will NOT but it’s tempting.
    Maybe those two Conservative black gals will invite me in to do one; we can be “the new look of the Speaking Supremes?” Very diverse 🙂

    Yes, I’ve never heard this guy NOT echo how most of us feel…Trump is here because we’ve all learned SO MUCH not to trust Obama. So, not much we can do about that, sadly.

  27. geeez2014 says:

    http://www.newyorker.com/humor/borowitz-report/trump-derailed-by-obamas-endorsement

    Hilarious. What do you think WOULD happen if Obama supported Trump? (other than the earth would come to a quick end?)!!!

  28. Baysider says:

    Yes imagine we had all that and civility too — well…. We’d have Reagan! This lack of public decorum just mirrors the culture. It’s been bad in the past (to wit Andrew jackson’s supporters among many). But not being able to articulate opprobrium with decency on this scale is a black mark on our society.

  29. Mal says:

    You know, after all that’s said and done, if Trump succeeds in his quest, he may just surprise us by actually becoming presidential and do all the things exactly like he said he would. Reagan surprised everyone after he became Gov. of Calif. then Pres. of the U.S. And if he did, it could start another dynasty, like the Kennedy’s and the Bushes because he has two sons and a daughter who could follow suit……………. if he was successful.
    Just sayin’…………………………A lotta ifs.

  30. Sparky says:

    I can say about the rest of the country, but here in Southeast Georgia, it seems to be Cruz country. Hubby and I voted early last week. There was a huge turn out even then. Well, all I, or we, can do is pray. Ask our merciful LORD Jesus to please guide us and our country back to being that shining beacon of hope for the rest of the world.
    I’m also gobsmacked that it’s March already! Time flies when you’re having fun, I gues … *roflol* 😉

  31. FB says:

    If Trump would talk normally, he would’ve not been heard. He understood how to get the media talk about him and not the rest. Totally manipulated them. And he’s leveraging how pissed we are with the GOP (so pissed I registered as independent.) It’s just the end of the GOP. It already was moving left anyway, like the rest of the country. Reminds me a bit of French conservative parties that had to move to the left, or at least be more statist, to be palatable in the 80s.

  32. geeez2014 says:

    FB, I don’t agree; Trump would make news just because it’s TRUMP talking…I’ve thought a lot about that and I understand your thinking but I personally believe that if he’d said what he’s saying now except not SO vulgar, people would have listened…he’d have had ME on his side, I assure you. ..if he’d also backed up his outrageous promises with some facts and ways HOW he was going to pull these things off.
    The whole world is going left………Communists infiltrated our schools, insulted our churches, and we were sleeping.

  33. Bob says:

    Darn! At7:05PM, just five minutes after the polls closed in Georgia, Fox called Trump the winner. With less than one present of the vote in, Trump had 48%, and Rubio had something in the 20% range.

  34. Bob says:

    OOPS. Rubio had 31% and Cruz 17% in Georgia.

  35. Baysider says:

    Mal, Reagan was a gentleman. Trump is a pugilist and never a gentleman.

    Look at the bright side: the dems’ choices are horrible, even for them.

  36. Bob says:

    Sorry. I got Cruz and Rubio numbers reversed.

  37. geeez2014 says:

    Baysider, “the dems’ choices are horrible..” It has to perplex Dems, yes….Hillary, dishonest, dynastic, shrill, haggard, possibly indicted……yuck. But then they turn to Sanders and many Dems do not want the ol’ socialist hippie, that’s for sure. Not good choices.
    Still, when faced with our bunch, they’ll be eager to choose one of theirs, I imagine.
    I’m hoping many Republicans won’t when faced with OUR guys!!
    They say Dems don’t stay home in frustration and that Reps do.
    bad.

  38. Mal says:

    Baysider, you’re absolutely correct. My comparison was meant only to point out how much our opinion changed after Reagan got elected, that’s all. After all the “B” movies Reagan made, like Breakfast with Bongo, one didn’t believe he could become one of our country’s greatest leaders. Otherwise, they are polar opposites.

  39. geeez2014 says:

    I wonder if this “press conference” by Trump tonight won’t be the announcement of his VP candidate?

  40. Mustang says:

    If you want to know who the next VP will be, ask Hillary.

  41. FB says:

    I love it. Rubio will vin VA b/c of all the people who work for the gov and the contractors. That says it all to me.

  42. FB says:

    Well, retracting. Trump wins VA. Rubio gets NoVA where all the rich employees and contractors are.

  43. geeez2014 says:

    FB>..we get it! You don’t like Rubio! A lot of us feel differently, but your sentiment is clear.

    Mustang; you are probably right…sadly

  44. FB says:

    No I don’t. I actually despise him. Another who hasn’t done much. If you can’t do your senator job and are an absentee, you can’t do anything right. You’re just a car salesman.

  45. geeez2014 says:

    FB….that was a rhetorical ‘joke’….I meant ‘WE GET IT!! WE GET IT!”>>>you’ve mentioned this several times and I’m not sure many agree….
    http://www.cnn.com/2016/02/29/politics/marco-rubio-endorsed-tom-coburn-oklahoma/index.html?eref=rss_politics
    This endorsement, by someone I greatly admire, is just another good one….totally NOT an establishment senator, 100% on Rubio’s side….
    https://marcorubio.com/news/florida-elected-officials-endorsing-rubio/
    I’m thinking these endorsements are pretty compelling.

    Don’t get me wrong; I’d vote for Kid or Mustang over Rubio….or Mal, or AOW, or Silverfiddle, or Baysider, or Ed or John, or any of my wonderful readers/commenters.;…but they’re NOT RUNNING :-(…

  46. Mal says:

    Thanks, Z. I can run on the “Old Farts” party! ;o)
