  • Re: Campaign 2016 Part XI: the Two Party Problem

    First the fellow RNC members fell in line in support of Trump. Next, the RNC's corporate partners are now falling in line. Looks like everyone is happy over at the RNC in getting behind Trump.

    All the hullabaloo about the RNC Convention being a dumpster fire have suddenly subsided.

      Which is perfect. I want to see the GOP all in on Trump. That way everybody goes down with the ship.

      FTB&G, it won't be Hillary (or even Bill) doing the dirty work. It'll be her people picking Trump apart. A lot of it will be legitimate, some of it not so much but hey, that's politics.

                I can't either. That's a really good question, though. I guess the first question is who ran a great campaign but lost? Maybe one of FDR's later opponents did; I just don't know the history well enough.

                Who ran the worst campaign but still won? (Nixon '72 committed impeachable offenses -- that's tough to top in an objective sense -- but let's talk about perception at the time.) Bush Sr's campaign in 88 was bad -- the SNL skit "I can't believe I'm losing to this guy" summed it up well. Not just in that it appealed nakedly to racism but that Bush himself came across as befuddled and incoherent. Dubya in '04 was mediocre at best. They both benefitted greatly from incompetent opponents (who are oddly alike in their unphotogenic technocratic awkwardness).

                This is truly terrifying because Trump is the definition of someone born to campaign but not govern, while Hillary is exactly the opposite. If America really just votes for the more entertaining persona, we are truly doomed.

                  Then I mea culpa cause he is absolutely right.

                    I've said (and still maintain) that Gore trounced Dubya in the first debate. That does not mean overall Dubya's campaign wasn't better. Gore took what should have been a walkover and made it close enough for Jeb to steal. Dubya was not as good a campaigner as his record said he was (sorry, Bill), however he was certainly better than Gore who was el stinko. The debate, which showed their relative level of intellect and knowledge, was the one time Gore was shown to be obviously the better choice to govern.

                      Gore may have been a horrible candidate but Nader drove the nails into the coffin and the country.
