Trump

11/16/22 07:40 AM

This story is about Trump. I missed the big announcement yesterday, but my wife filled me in and apparently he's making another run for the presidency. Really?

I honestly thought that with a Senate controlled by the Democrats, Trump would not be able to deal with the resistance and would pass on the opportunity. It appears that his family has already seen the wisdom in one term only.

I'm also not sure that Trump has a strong base left. In other words, I'm not real sure he is electable. Despite his childish and narcissistic behavior, I think he accomplished a lot of positives. But without control of both the House and the Senate, if he were to be elected I fear he would be at best a lame duck.

Trump's bid may bring with it some real problems for the Republican party. If they don't get behind him, we may be looking at a split ticket that serves to provide us all with Biden or another left leaning president. And if they do get behind him again, there's still the ever looming question of his electability.

So despite its appearance, the title of this post was not meant to proclaim disbelief. It was meant to present a potential statement of fact. I have serious doubts that he can do it all again.

Had Republicans taken control of the House and the Senate, then I believe electing Trump could and would make a difference. But that opportunity doesn't exist anymore.

In my humble opinion, Trump should step aside and let DeSantis take a swing at it.
