Can Donald Trump win the GOP nomination? Will he?
As the Iowa caucuses approach, more people are saying yes, while, of course, others are scratching their heads, wondering what hit them, and exclaiming, “NO”.
I have called Donald Trump a number different things these past few months--ranging from a demagogue to dangerous. But, let me now add to the growing list--a coward and hypocrite.
Today, Trump made his appearances on various talk-shows trying to defend his new controversial position regarding keeping Muslims out of America.
Louisiana’s feisty absentee Governor Bobby Jindal sure knows now to ignite a political firestorm half way around the world. He sent out advance warnings of his lighting rod litany when he admonished: “I will warn you in advance that I’m going to say some things that are not politically correct, so brace yourselves.” So naturally, I held onto my desk, took a deep breath, assumed the worst, and braced myself.
According to a six month Gallup survey, President Obama is very popular with only one group of Americans, Muslims, registering an astounding 72% approval rating. It is a much different story among all Americans as the President scores a weak 43% approval rating.
