Louisiana News & politics focus on Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards and Louisiana legislature

McCainby Jim Brown

There is no politically correct way to explain it. Donald Trump blew his chance in a big way.  He seemed to be on a roll, rising in the presidential preference polls and talking about issues other Republican candidates were ducking.  Here in Louisiana, he hit a responsive cord when few other presidential wanabes had the gumption to show any backbone, particularly on curtailing illegal immigration.  But then, his mouth got in the way.

DUMP-TRUMP 6Donald Trump has been the talk of the town, the discussion on TV, the concern of the Republican Party, the target of Democratic attacks and ridicule.  Yet, the candidate is sitting on top of the polls of 16 Republican candidates.  When Trump makes an inflammatory remark, he gets inundated with criticism from the media and others, but then the media pursue him as the go-to-guy on the breaking issues.

McCainTo no one’s surprise, U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) announced his intention to run for re-election. After a distinguished military career and 5 ½ years as a POW in Vietnam, McCain retired from the military and entered politics. McCain was initially elected to the House of Representatives in 1982, followed by his first Senate election in 1986. Since his initial election to the Senate, McCain has won re-election four times.   

For John McCain, 34 years in Congress will not be enough, so he wants another six years as U.S. Senator. In fact, he told one reporter that his Senate career was “just getting started.” If elected again, McCain will be 86 at the end of his next term.

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
