|It's gotten ugly in the race. Trump goes on the third rail.|
Donald Trump is still the front runner. It's a shocking to the establishment that a reality television star is trouncing the favorite sons. Jeb Bush, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio and even Ted Cruz are taking nosedives while Trump, Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina continue to soar.
Republicans are feuding with one another. The fights are ugly and the possible nomination of Trump may spark a boycott within the party.
Trump is never apologizing for anything. He's went after a lot of people. But one person, Republicans seem to still respect is 43.
Trump went into sensitive territory. He managed to tell the truth about the handling of terrorism.
The Politico reports that Trump gave an interview to Bloomberg. The clown went right into it.
“I think I have a bigger heart than all of them," Trump responded. "I think I’m much more competent then all of them. I mean, say what you want, the World Trade Center came down during [George W. Bush's] time.”
Ruhle interjected: “Hold on, you can’t blame George Bush for that."
“He was president, OK? Don’t blame him or don’t blame him, but he was president," Trump continued. "The World Trade Center came down during his reign. If you look at Sandy Hook, those people are still begging for help."
That was aimed Jeb Bush. Bush is struggling in the polls. He was the "favorite son" of many in the establishment. But since Trump joined the race, the establishment candidates took a nosedive.
This feud between Bush and Trump has gotten the junk food media's attention.
According to the Republicans, you can't blame Bush for 9/11. It wasn't his fault. Of course, you can't blame him for missing the urgent memos about foreign terrorists plotting an attack on the United States.
9/11 was Bill Clinton's fault. He failed to understand terrorism. He was busy messing around with interns at the White House. He let our embassies and USS Cole get attacked.
Clinton ignored Osama bin Laden.
When the first attack on the World Trade Center happened, Clinton was not doing his job.
After the tragedy, the president and Congress mounted war. We soon went into war with Afghanistan and later into Iraq. We were under the impression that Bush "kept us safe".
When Bush won his second term, a horrible hurricane struck the Gulf coast. Hurricane Katrina came to shore and destroyed New Orleans. We were under the impression that Bush "kept us safe".
Those events are examples of Bush keeping us safe. Of course, Republicans will always resort to finding fault in Benghazi over 9/11. For Republicans and their conservative allies, Benghazi was a bigger disaster than 9/11.
Former president George W. Bush decided to stay out of the race. He's "endorsed" Jeb. But in reality, he's painting and keeping his distance from the political theater.
