WHO for President?

IF Trump decided not to run, which is highly unlikely, or if people forced him not to run, which is almost as unlikely, I have a question for you:


I’m seeing a lot of Republicans who hold office now on CNN lately talking about how they can’t vote for Trump and postulating on someone else stepping in, etc.    I think that’s despicable.  Is there NO loyalty to the party at all?   They don’t have to vote for him once they’re in that private voting booth, but to go on CNN, which is sharpening its happy fangs every day as Trump gives them more and more fodder to find him ridiculous….?   Their news people are actually exchanging little smiles between each other when they have a Trump supporter on, as if “Isn’t this woman ridiculous?”  I started thinking the Republican congressmen and senators appearing on CNN are probably just going on for the free air time for their own reelections or popularity….awful.

SO…WHO would run instead of Trump….and do you think there’s a chance Trump won’t run?

  1. Well, Manafort made a cryptic reference to supporting Ryan for President. Not my choice for POTUS, but he’d be better than Trump.


  2. Funny, that mantra “anybody but Clinton” obviously did not indicate loyalty to Trump.
    My original pick, Scott Walker.
    Or Ryan (as CI mentioned), who would be well equipped from the start.
    Ryan gets slammed, and his record distorted, by all the Trump acolytes who attack anyone not engaged in Trump worship.

    If I was running for office, it might be in my best interest to distance myself from Trump, not wanting to get dragged down with him. At least in my district. All politics is local.

    Rick Perry/Carly Fiorina

    Deal wid DAT, ch’all.


  4. Bocopro; That’s it? Two lines of text? Who are you, and what did you do with the REAL Bocopro?


  5. The fact that we are talking about a replacement for Trump, or that so many people feel they need to give advice to Trump on how to win, indicates what a poor choice he was as candidate for the presidency.


  6. Imp says:

    It is almost impossible to imagine a more corrupt, mendacious, duplicitous, capricious and self-serving person being President than Obama – unless of course, you imagine Hillary being President.

    I’ll stick with DT.


  7. bocopro says:

    Jarheads: Semper Fidelis
    Coasties: Semper Paratus
    Clintons: Semper Mendacious
    Trump: Semper Bodacious

    I’ll stick with DT also, but for fun Allen West/Bobby Jindahl

    While I’m not yet ready to relegate Trump to the past tense; he still has time for redemption, I’ll address the interrogative(s) of this post. Although I was not so big on Carson I believe that we are still in dire need of an outsider and [he], in spite of not being selected, has steadfastly maintained adherence to the core of the positive attributes of Trump’s primary election success, without the bombastic delivery. His inexperience in politics, per se, could be buttressed with Newt as VP. OK, this won’t happen but that’s my 2 cents! The fact that Shrillary maintains her lead in the polls, no matter her solid record of misfeasance, indicates that America is very sick and, sadly, she may prevail over anyone the Republicans run! Finally, I pray for a miraculous epiphany on the part of Trump and the electorate, at large.


  10. geeez2014 says:

    CI, I hadn’t caught that! Not a big Manafort fan here, to say the least (it actually was one of the things that got me the most worried about Trump’s decision making when he chose him), but I’d love this.

    Ed….LOTS of Cons. slam Ryan and he doesn’t deserve it. I KNOW that he’s taken the other side of some issues in Congress, but he’s explained a lot of that pretty well.. I watched him on an Anderson COoper TownHall and he was amazing……He’s one smart guy. and loves the constitution, loves America, and has dignity and civility.

    He’d have made a great president to Scott Walker’s VP…Ryan/Walker.
    But I’m all over Ryan/Pence, too. Let them GET OUT THERE AND GIVE THE TRUE CONSERVATIVE MESSAGE ….OH, bliss!!

    bocopro..no, thanks. 🙂
    Ed, right!!!!

    Imp and Kid, even with the way Trump’s forcing his numbers to sink and saying such horrible things…acting a little like he’s ‘not all there’ , you’d support him even in this hypothetical question here? I’m surprised.

    JMB: I pray for a Trump epiphany, too…not sure he’s got it in his character to STOP BEING TRUMP. I was thinking last night how spoiled he’s become by his enormous wealth…..I remember Kathy Lee Gifford once saying “You can get sucked in by your ‘fame’….suddenly, you’re getting tables in restaurants without calling, you have people throwing your door open, people staring at you…it’s heady and you have to fight that”
    I believe Trump just buys into it….he has no humility and people do like humility.


  11. fredd says:

    All of this nonsense about ‘interventions’ and such is just a pack of losers in the GOP who see Trump as a threat to their power, and a bunch of liberals in the press who hate anybody who threatens the liberal status quo.

    Trump will soldier on, and he will ignore those whom he has vanquished so far. And it’s early. The polls are seldom correct this far out. Nobody except me apparently remembers that Reagan was behind by around 15 points at this same time in 1980 to Jimmy Carter. He had no chance. And George H. W. Bush was behind by around the same margin to Michael Dukakis in 1988. Reagan didn’t have a prayer.

    And yet I don’t recall the second term of the Carter administration, nor do I recall anyone named ‘President Dukakis.’ What I recall was both of those liberal schlubbs got their butts kicked in landslides.

    All of this is just post Labor day crap.


  12. fredd says:

    Correction: “BUSH didn’t have a prayer.” Correction: All of this is just PRE Labor Day crap.

    Had to set the record straight, Z.


  13. geeez2014 says:

    fredd, that’s not ‘the record’ that’s your opinion.

    And how ANYBODY could believe the GOP is doing an intervention because it sees Trump more as a ‘threat to their power’ than a guy who’s desperately working to get Hillary elected through his hideous blusters and blunders is way beyond me.


  14. John M. Berger says:

    @ fredd,

    Thanks, I needed that!


  15. Sparky says:

    Trump will not concede or back down. However, should that happen or he is assassinated by the Big Government/Companies (which is predicted), I’m a Dr. Rand Paul girl. He’s the only one that put forth a proposal to lower taxes AND pay off the debt. Plus, Dr. Paul is for smaller government. It won’t happen because too many people like big government. They hate freedom, I’m convinced of that. But, I can dream of a free America again … 😉


  16. Sparky, +1!

    Paul was the GOP candidate I would have supported. And you’ve accurately assessed why he didn’t have a chance.


  17. Mal says:

    My vote, like most of us, would be any of the above, but it would need to be someone with the least “excess baggage” in their background because, boy! The left will surely find it and use it against them. That’s inevitable. Its a given they will seek and attempt to destroy/discredit whoever we select. Look at Sarah Palin and how the media all flew up to Alaska, looking for anything they could to use against her, and ended up frustrated because the only thing they found was fixing of a minor traffic ticket! That’s pretty clean, I’d say, so who among us is perfect? The Left is a well-organized, well-oiled ($$$) machine which is another reason I dislike them and want to defeat them.


  18. geeez2014 says:

    Sparky, I’ve worried about someone offing Trump, too….it’s a horrible thought. But I have also, I must admit, wished he’d just GO AWAY FOREVER…to Trump Island; surely he must own one. On, no…wait, if he did, he’d have told us about how huuuge and fabulous it is.

    Rand Paul…I don’t know…he’s never appealed to me, but I’ll admit some of what he’s said did.Now he’s just looking smug in every interview I see him in and maybe he has good reason to.

    Mal, the left is doing a FABULOUS job in insulting all Republicans on the off chance we all like Trump….it’s humiliating…to think people would think we’d all vote for someone like that. I just got questioned on Facebook by some Canadians…….I literally had no response; I was tongue tied at the questions and what they didn’t mean as insults, but sure sounded like them. And they were right…how could ANYBODY truly listen to Trump and respect him or think he’s prepared for the presidency? MY GOD.


  19. FB says:

    If that happens most people will stay out and not vote. Trust me on that one. So the result will be the same. If they do it it’s because they need big donors money to fill the coffers of the GOP.

    I am glad I ditched this party as far as affiliation.

    It’s time for a new party, one for the people, with a patriotic sentiment. And it’s time for the GOP to go to hell.


  20. do you think there’s a chance Trump won’t run?

    Nope. Not if he’s still alive.


  21. FB,
    I’ve always been an Independent. For a long time, no Party has represented me.


  22. Ed,
    The fact that we are talking about a replacement for Trump, or that so many people feel they need to give advice to Trump on how to win, indicates what a poor choice he was as candidate for the presidency.


    that we’re falling for the Enemedia’s propaganda


  23. FB says:

    I think the Dems are trying to discourage people to show up b/c they know the crowds are there to go see Trump. The numbers at primaries are no fluke. The only way to win is to discourage people while the GOP financiers are freaking out b/c the coffers are not filling up.


  24. Kid says:

    AOW, and what will it mean if there is election fraud again.


  25. FB,
    What you said at 11:21 am is exactly what’s going on.


  26. FB says:

    What the GOP has missed is that the people don’t want to be part of their game. When I’d get all the fake surveys and forms to raise money, I’d write back “fix it and you’ll get money.” In the meantime, the Dems are now the party of the rich fooling the Bernie type and other people who still believe they’re fighting for them.

    Either the GOP changes or it’s officially dead at the national level after this election.


  27. geeez2014 says:

    AOW “that we’re falling for the Enemedia’s propaganda” Just LISTEN to him speak. OMG

    FB “Either the GOP changes or it’s officially dead at the national level after this election.”
    Then it’ll be our fault there’s no conservative party anymore…you want that? No, I KNOW you don’t think they’re conservative now but they’re a darn sight better than the Dems…on a LOT of stances.
    Oh, I think the GOP totally gets that people don’t want to be part of their game, hence the reaction by Priebus, etc., to Trump’s primary victories! OH, yes, they know.


  28. geeez2014 says:

    I just want to say it’s time we work REALISTICALLY within this party to get the RIGHT CHANGES…..I believe Paul Ryan is trying hard to do that; Sure, he’d love everything we’d love; much smaller government, closer adherence to the Constitution, etc..he has kids, he wants an American future for them, not a Hillary future……but so many slam him because he’s ‘playing ball with the Dems”…sadly, that’s the way our gov’t was set up; to try to compromise, come up with the best solutions.

    Republicans needed a man who they could REALLY rally around….Trump, I thought, was going to be the one, frankly. I really did…but now he’s repeating himself several times in one sentence “We’re getting the biggest crowds EVER…we’re getting the biggest crowds…ever…ever …huge crowds…we’ve got the biggest crowds..” ALL the time (like that), and he’s insulting people without explaining WHY…he could have criticized the Muslim father if he had the real information of who that guy IS….he could have exposed him. Trump could INSIST that the mother of the SEAL killed in Libya, Smith, be respected, too…he could have opened each of the recent speeches with that comparison…how they treated Khan and Smith. Why isn’t he? THAT is fighting well and fighting hard….FACTS, just FACTS, no insults.

    I’m hoping this has been some big, weird personality put-on to attract certain voters …and that he’ll be like a real person soon. God help us all. I hope whatever ‘intervention’ happens this weekend is less about content and more about FORM.


  29. geeez2014 says:


    Sadly, I believe this is right…Hillary’s right on track;..I won’t be able to watch the debates…imagine if they ask Trump questions about some country he knows nothing about.
    I hope he’s studying like a FOOL right now…because he’s going to need to 😦


  30. FB says:

    I honestly don’t care if the GOP goes. There’ll be a replacement. They haven’t done squat for the past 8 years. Like Obama. All pretty much incompetent.


  31. geeez2014 says:

    FB…I disagree but don’t question your feelings about it…they haven’t thrilled anybody for a while.

    Wouldn’t it be interesting if, at some point during his Presidential campaign, Donald Trump asked, “Oh, by the way, has anyone in
    Washington DC ever heard of the McCarran-Walter Act Of 1952?

    I did not know of this Act until recently, but it has been a law for almost 65 years.

    Here are the historic facts that would seem to indicate that many, if not most, of the people we elect to work for us in Washington DC do
    NOT have the slightest idea of what laws already exist in OUR country.

    After several terrorist incidents were carried out in the United States , Donald Trump was severely, criticized for suggesting that the
    U.S. should limit or temporarily suspend the immigration of certain ethnic groups, nationalities, and even people of certain religions (Muslims). The criticisms condemned such a suggestion as, among other
    things, being Un-American, dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous and racist. Congressmen and Senators swore that they would never allow such legislation, and our illustrious President called such a prohibition on immigration unconstitutional.

    As Gomer Pyle would say, “Well, Surprise, Surprise!” It seems that the selective immigration ban is already law and has been applied on several occasions.

    Known as the McCarran-Walter Act, the Immigration and Nationality Act
    of 1952 allows for the “Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by the President, whenever the President finds that the
    entry of aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States . The President
    may, by proclamation, and for such a period as he shall deem necessary, may suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens
    as immigrants or non-immigrants or impose any restrictions on the entry of aliens he may deem to be appropriate.”

    And who do you suppose last utilized this process? Why it was Democrat
    President Jimmy Carter, no less than 37 years ago, in 1979, to keep Iranians out of the United States .

    But he actually did more. He made ALL Iranian students, already in the United States , check in with the government. And then he deported a
    bunch of them. Seven thousand were found in violation of their visas, and a total of 15,000 Iranians were forced to leave the USA in 1979.

    So, what say you about all of the criticism that Donald Trump received from the Democrat Senators, Representatives and the Obama

    Additionally, it is important to note that the McCarran-Walter Act also requires that an “applicant for immigration must be of good moral character and in agreement with the principles of our Constitution.”

    Therefore, one could surmise that since the Quran forbids Muslins to swear allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, technically, ALL Muslins
    should be refused immigration to OUR country.

    Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952

  32. Kid says:

    I’d say that would be great Z.


  33. Imp says:

    @Z…”Why it was Democrat President Jimmy Carter”

    There’s your answer. Like when I said a dem mocked McCain’s worthiness before too and not a peep about it. The Dems claim the R’s are the all white, old people party too….look who they have and had on their ticket…SanderClaus, Killary and what’s his face. Face it…the dems are repping all the ‘minorities’, illegals and anarchists….it reeks of PC. and rank hypocrisy. And they get away with it cause god knows…if you say anything off color….you’re doomed to media hell or purgatory.


  34. Imp says:

    Sheriff David Clarke….Doesn’t this bother those spineless Rats who would abandon the party for Killary?

    “But I will say this as well about Mrs. Bill Clinton: the woman has no soul. The woman would sell her firstborn to become President of the United States. And I think that’s pathetic,” he said. “I’m afraid of people who thirst for political power so bad that they would do anything for it.”

    “This woman’s a pathological liar, she’s a straight-up liar. She lied to the families who had loved ones killed in Benghazi,” he charged. “She stood over their caskets — I can’t think of a more morally bankrupt thing to do than something like that. She lied about the secret server. She lied to Congress about turning over these emails.”

    “James Comey confirmed, the director of the FBI, confirmed that she lied about the secret server and the destruction of emails. And she stood up, and looked Chris Wallace of Fox News in the eye, and said, ‘James Comey said I told the truth.’ He did not say that, and as a matter of fact, he said she was not truthful, which is a nice way in Washington of saying that somebody lied,” Clarke said.

    “This woman is, like I said, morally bankrupt,” he stressed. “Her ethical elevator has no bottom floor. This shows you how fast, and how far, we’ve fallen as a country, that someone with her lack of character and integrity is actually within reach of the White House. You have got to be kidding me.”


  35. FB says:

    Not only is she morally bankrupt but her brain is also starting to go it looks like (concussion.)


  36. Kid says:

    I think if someone could get her talking for a while she might just blow. As DT points out she hasn’t done a news conference in over 200 days. No doubt the strategy is hide, and only come out when absolutely necessary to friendly environments.

    Said Comey said she was truthful – today says She must have ‘short-circuited’ Someone important must have called her on it.
    Said she wants to tax the midle class, then begs that one off to a freudian slip. Get her in a non-teleprompter non-debate with pre-known questions situation and she might jst really out Trump Trump.


  37. Kid says:

    IMP, I alos noticed David Clarke was calling his brothers to stop voting democrat since they don’t do * for them but make things worse.


  38. Mal says:

    Z, your best response to your Canadian friends is although you might prefer someone else, we have to go with the best of the two, regardless of how we may feel about them……IF ITS ANY OF THEIR BUSINESS WHAT YOU DO.


  39. I have an acquaintance who is rabid Trump and rabid anti-Ryan.
    He also rails against the Koch Brothers since they are not supporting Trump, after years of singing their praises.
    With Trump endorsing Ryan tonight, I wonder if his head is going to explode.


  40. geeez2014 says:

    Ed, move over….you’re not alone. And I hear Ryan’s not going to be there. He’s got his election sewn up, anyway…
    it’s Ayotte and others that Trump is being HORRIBLE not supporting….it’s clear he’s more interested in his getting the presidency than Republicans keeping Congress (see my blog tomorrow…it’s another case of “Z writes a post and FOX covers the story 2 hours later”)

    Mal, I told them we have two flawed candidates…

    Imp; that the media doesn’t put the dots together on these murders blows my mind. I’m starting to believe what I and his family thought was ridiculous: that Andrew Breitbart was killed.
    I LOVE “SanderClaus!” HILARIOUS and SO TRUE! ONly Santa doesn’t charge US for others’ freebies!

    Kid, I have always admired David Clarke SO MUCH. And yes, it WOULD BE GREAT!!


  41. Imp says:

    “House Speaker Paul Ryan’s primary opponent, who has gotten support from Donald Trump, suggested Monday that the United States have a “discussion” about deporting all Muslims from the United States.

    “The question is, why do we have Muslims in the country?” conservative businessman Paul Nehlen said in a Monday radio interview with Chicago’s AM 560 “The Answer.”

    Nehlen said that Muslims who believe in Sharia law are in “direct conflict” with the U.S. Constitution.

    “If someone is supporting Sharia, that is doing something wrong,” he said.

    “Are you suggesting that we deport all of the Muslims in this country?” asked radio host Dan Proft.

    “I’m suggesting we have a discussion about it, that’s for sure,” Nehlen replied.

    Referencing Newt Gingrich’s call for a religious test on all Muslims after the terror attacks on Nice, Nehlen also called for law enforcement to monitor “every mosque” in the United States.”

    Fine with me and about 80% of the rest of us. Sooner or later…it’s going to come down to it anyway.
    One more attack like Orlando…..just one more. We’re not like the French or Germans.


  42. Kid says:

    islam has nothing in common with a free society focusd on human rights. Seems simple. And Kahs wife could not speak because of her ‘religion’.

    What’s worse, offending some moslem or telling some American loved one of a victim of terrorism – geee sorry.


  43. Imp says:

    @Kid…look at it…it’s the ring around the toilet of ‘human’ ignorance.


  44. Kid says:

    democrats have been doing this at least since the 70’s. Appeasement as a strategy. It amounts to telling the Black Mamba that you wanht to be friends so please don’t bite me.

    libtardism is a lethal mental disease and they all need to find this out the hard way.


  45. Kid says:

    Let’s convince them that if they go to the ME and offer the IS vermin jobs at new fast food restaurants that they will settle right in and stop their evil as the state department recently suggested. But it’s going to take oodles and oodles of libtards to get the job done – maybe every steenkin one of them.


  46. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, Khan’s wife gave interviews after that night; they’d just decided he was speaking that night.
    He’s a scumbag who apparently sells VISAS….I’m hoping that information gets more widely out there and somebody boots him out of the country, hero son or NOT.

    “libtardism is a lethal mental disease and they all need to find this out the hard way.” The problem is WE are living with this the hard way, right? @($&@#($*&@#($*&@#

    Imp and Kid…ANYBODY pushing for SHaria law in THIS country has to leave YESTERDAY…

    We have to get RID of political correct crap and move on….as Kid says , it’s WE who need protection, not THEM.


  47. Kid says:

    Not going to happen Z. Not until a real majority realizes what a cancer islam is. Going to be a while and not in my lifetime.
