Super Tuesday: Six Things I Know And Share

If you don't like Trump, this one here is your only choice.

If you don’t like Trump, this one here is your only choice.



  • The GOP Softies need to man up.  

Crying like little girls angry at something that should have never, ever be allowed to happen, our not-so-brave pundits, politicians and assorted losers are now hysterically telling us what a catastrophe it will be if Trump wins the nomination. Unfortunately, these are the same people who kept telling us he would never win the nomination, thus reducing their credibility to Comical Ali levels. I find the whining tone even worse that the lame arguments used. But most offensive I find that people who clearly did not understand jack of anything these past six/seven months now ask us to believe in their infallible wisdom… again.   

  • The GOP Softies Prefer Hillary To Cruz

All this talk of not voting Trump instead of telling Rubio and Kasich to see the light (and withdraw already) means only one thing: they’d rather lose to Hillary (or so they think) than help Cruz to win. It does not make sense. Trump is certainly not the best candidate, and I have my doubts about his credentials. But compared to Clinton, give me Trump every day. I am sure there is an awful lot of people out there who think exactly the same as me. And I am sure there is an awful lot of GOP apparatchiks who root for Hillary already. 

  • Either Cruz is now left alone against Trump, or Trump has all but won. 

This isn’t really difficult. Cruz is the only one consistently able to defeat Trump. He is the (more) presentable face of Conservatism. He is tested, and extremely reliable. Given the choice between Trump and Cruz, millions would still pick Cruz, and there might still be time (not much, though). Cruz would reduce Hillary to ashes come November (hey, even Bernie got fairly near). Cruz should, at this point, be the card of choice of all those who:  1) are conservative, and 2) don’t like Trump.

Do we see this happening? Not as I write this. Don’t hold your breath. Even Kasich still thinks he has chances. Go figure. If nothing changes, Trump is it, then. I note here that even so it would be difficult, because Trump is firmly installed in the hearts and mind of those against globalisation, and of those strongly set against illegal immigration. Cruz will never speak to them as Trump does. 

  • Horror scenarios are not credible

This is less intuitive, but let me explain. I do not believe in the least the scenario of the party fracture, and of either a brokered convention going against the clear winner, or of a third candidate launched just to make Trump lose. Not going to happen. It would mean the complete annihilation of the GOP and – more importantly – the end of thousands of political and administrative careers in the second, third and fourth rank of the political personnel in Washington as well as everywhere else. Nuclear scenarios are only credible if you want to die. Countless GOP pussies may whine like little girls now, but they do not want to die. When Trump gets the nomination they will deny him a useful support and most certainly hope he loses, but they will not destroy the party (and themselves) just for the sake of destroying Trump. Besides, in my not so short life I have heard such threats many times, in many Countries. Sorry, I don’t buy it. Ah, I forgot: Trump has enough money to do it again in four or eight years’ time, if he so chooses. The man seems vindictive.  

If you ask me, the nuclear scenario is not going to happen. Rather, there will soon be a small army of people ready to support the new man; power attracts, and this kind of power attracts an awful lot. Chris Christie got it faster. Many others will get to the same conclusion later.   

  • Trump has no “ceiling”

It is funny to still read, in the liberal press, of the supposed ceiling that Trump would have, and the fact that outside of his fedelissimi the Country hates him. It’s not happening. The field has now clearly thinned out compared to the Christie and Bush days, and Trump still gets more than the votes (and of the delegates) of Cruz and Rubio together. Actually, he gets Chris Christie’s vote, too! As soon as he gets the nomination, the Country will begin to reflect that the alternative is Hillary. Trump will tear her to little pieces for months on end. The woman who is trembling because of Sanders will have nowhere to hide against Trump. Forget the hypothetical polls of hypothetical scenarios. When Trump has the nomination he will be very real, and Hillary will feel the heat from day one. More supposed “ceilings” will fall then, as they have been falling up to now. The talk of “ceilings” only hides the inability of too many to understand what is happening.

Polls don’t make history. Polls don’t change Countries. Men do. It is a typical GOP mistake to go for what they think the people will choose, rather than pick a man that will change the way people choose. Strong men change Countries. Trump gets it, Jeb Bush never did.  

  • Rubio still doesn’t get it  

Poor man has become so accustomed to persuade himself that defeats are victories, that he seems now utterly unable to see a defeat of Grand Canyon proportions staring at him in the face. A doctor might be in order. Seen from the other side of the pond, one who could win only one state out of fifteen (and this one bringing him so few delegates, that he would have been better off scraping 20% of the vote in Texas) and still talks of momentum and very bright days just about to come is in a state of denial of, actually, very funny proportions.

There. I though I would share. It helps me not to think about Francis.

  1. I, too, think about politics as a diversion from thinking about the pope. At least there’s some hope in politics. My choice for president would be Cruz, but, if not him, then Trump. Rubio was the RNC’s golden boy, but now they are stuck with the two candidates they hate. But this is how democracy is supposed to work; with the people deciding, not the party bosses. Everything you wrote is correct about the current situation with the Republican Party and the candidates. Mr. M, how does a European understand American politics so well?

    • Thanks! A lot of people in Europe understand American politics well. Not only it concerns us directly in many ways, but it is far more interesting than in many European countries. In my office Trump is more talked about than the EU vote in June. However, this is a kind of sport for the better educated or curious of politics. Most people only receive the echoes of the Buggers Broadcasting Communism (BBC).

      As to the matter, it is pathetic to hear those people who should, erm, celebrate democracy treat the entire Republican people as if they were bunch of morons, because they don’t want a man only able to repeat a couple of lines by heart, and in even in that doesn’t know when to stop.

      Santorum was asked to mention what was in his mind the best achievement of Rubio. He couldn’t name one. And he was endorsing him. It goes to show the utter incompetence of the average candidate (bar Cruz). Then they are surprised Trump, who is highly intelligent, is destroying everyone (bar Cruz, again; at least for now)



  2. Already Trunp is going after Hillary. He’s going to in a verbal sense destroy her

    • Yep.
      Hillary complained about Sanders.
      Go figure.
      She will be completed flattened by Trump’s steamroller, and will never know what happened.

  3. Excellent analysis, agree completely. One thing is certain. The complaints about Trump destroying the Republican Party by the other candidates and others are completely insincere. The truth is they put themselves ahead of the party. What should be done now, if they were sincere, is all but Cruz should withdraw in order to defeat Trump. Here we have another case where selfishness trumps loyalty.

  4. Yes, all of this. Why oh why can you see it so clearly? Does one need to be outside the country to have such clarity? Not that I’m happy about it; I would much rather see Cruz. The rest of the losers need to get out, so we see how Cruz does head to head on March 15. Alas, I still don’t think it will be enough. It will be Trump, and give me Trump any day against Hillary.

  5. Hah! Great post, Mundabor, and I couldn’t agree more. A clear perspective “from across the pond”, for sure. Go Cruz!

  6. I’ve recently found out some repugnant things about the man. He has funded big abortion and hobnobbed with the Clintons. It’s a bleak landscape out there.

    • He was a donor of Hillary Clinton. I think he paid for her “appearance” at one of his marriages. He is on record for praising Planned Parenthood. He said his (abortionist) sister would be an excellent Supreme Court judge.

      But I doubt he would do anything of this again if elected. Too smart for that.


  7. I would like to think you are correct and that either Trump or Cruz could win against Hilary. I think it is unlikely though. If Trump gets the nomination the race card will be out and running. Hilary’s hope will be a large Afr-Amer turnout ( and soccer moms, scared of Trump’s style). If Cruz is nominated all the Democrats need to do is play Rev Kevin Swanson’s “should we execute gays?” speech/rant st a religious liberty conference at which Cruz appeared and was greeted/endorsed by Swanson. Only 2% of the population is gay, but many more are relatives and friends of gays. Again soccer moms and independents do not like the appearance of intemperance and Rachel Maddow has the video of the Swanson-Cruz meeting along with some mordant comment on it.

    I think Rubio is a much safer candidate to run against Hilary. He may not be the person most popular with Republican primary voters, but the latter are not the electorate. Also he has the same “minority” advantage Hilary. She would’ve billed as the first woman President. Unfortunately her opponent would be implicitly put down as the usual “white male”–even Cruz. It would be harder to do this to Rubio.

    • No where near 2% of the population is perverted (not “gay”). But I do not think what you say will happen. I have written about this, no time now.

  8. We should be grateful for Donald Trump even if he does not become President, for the cleaning of the air. People seems to breathe a little better now. They were suffocating because they were hopeless. Trump attracts people of all kinds to vote for him, so he could unite the country.

  9. Tonight we will get more data points for analysis. With Carson finally out, Cruz should be further strengthened. Demographically, Kansas very much resembles Oklahoma and Iowa. It is a caucus, which has favored Cruz so far. A must win state for Cruz.

    Kentucky and Louisiana should in theory be good states for Cruz, too. But they are more similar to the type of Southern state that has preferred Trump so far. KY is a caucus state, so that should favor Cruz at least. A good night for Cruz would be winning Kansas handily, finishing a close second in Kentucky and closer to Trump than to Rubio in Louisiana. Maine will not be kind to Cruz, but given the split between Kasich and Rubio he could stay close to them or even ahead as he did in NH.

    If Trump wins all four, Cruz will not be the nominee. If Cruz loses Kansas, where are his delegates going to come from?

    Rubio will win the Puerto Rico primary with at least 75 percent of the vote (Romney got 83 last time) – enough for the fake-conservative media to portray him as a winner. Given that the other contests are proportional and Puerto Rico is winner-take-all if someone gets over 50%, Rubio might even win the most delegates tonight. The nomination process is set up so that a pro-amnesty establishment darling like Rubio has a huge advantage.

    Contrary to popular perception, it’s still early. We are still in the first third of the primary season. At and after March 15, most contests will be winner-take-all, so that even a large delegate lead can evaporate quickly. I still stand by my prediction that Rubio will be the nominee, however, though I would give him maybe 60% now instead of the 75% I gave him two weeks ago. Trump gets a 15% chance, Cruz is upgraded to about 10, with the rest for a contested convention with unknown results.

    • I don’t bet my pint on Rubio. It astonishes me how he can still be seen by anyone as having a chance. He’ll be raped in Florida, and pretty much everywhere else.
      If it’s a brokered convention, I see someone from the outside (and a nuclear mess). If not (as we know in the meantime) it’s going to be Cruz or Rubio.

  10. Go Trump 2016 ! This is the most exciting election I have ever witnessed. And we have seen the ugly face of the Black Lives Matter movement tonight. Mindless thugs against free speech and the right to assembly. Way to go…

    • When I heard it I immediately thought “this will be good for Trump”.
      I am so disappointed Cruz chose to side with the wrong people.
      Trump is very, very good for American politics.
