Does The Donald Have An Ulterior Motive? Or Is He Just A Gasbag?

5070I think I am getting quite fond of Donald Trump. Yes, I am. I was reading an article in The Guardian about Trump today. The article was great, but I really liked this comment that I came across.

I think he’s conning the rubes. He doesn’t have a ‘plan’ for anything regarding policy, he’s just an unfettered ego who can’t stop running his mouth. Probably the single biggest problem he has is that there is no one – NO ONE – who can tell him that he really needs to start acting like a grownup. But then, this may actually all be part of ‘the plan’.

In all honesty, though, I think he’s a liberal at heart who is destroying the GOP by bringing out the very worst it has to offer, and allowing the rest of the country to see it for what it is. In the process, he’s driving a wedge not only between the GOP and the rest of the sane parts of the country, but a wedge between the bagro base and the few remaining rational mainstream republicans. He knows he’s not going to get the nomination; I rather doubt that’s his goal.

What he is doing, though, is forcing the candidates to come down on one side or the other of the crazy fence. Either you agree with him, and alienate the sane portions of the party, or you disagree with him, in which case the zanies will rage against you. What he’s doing is splitting the GOP in half. Sooner or later, the party leadership is going to have to make a choice, and neither one is good. By going after McCain, once again, he’s driving that wedge between the crazies and the RINOs ever deeper. If you look at the threads on the conservative blogs, they’re cheering him on. He’s not losing support in the least, the crazier he talks, the more crazies will flock to him.

If he doesn’t get the nomination (and he won’t), I can see him making a third party bid, which will guarantee a Democratic supermajority in the Senate, a Democratic House, and a Democrat in the White House. With the obstruction of the GOP removed, the country will experience a business boom which will more than recoup all of the costs and losses that Trump has had thus far. It may just be that he’s taking the long view . . . That if he can force the GOP to jettison the zanies, they might be able to return to sanity, or if they can’t, to finally just die and put itself out of our misery.

My guess is that Trump has simply decided that the GOP is REALLY bad for business, and that he’s going to do something about it. If so, this is brilliant on his part. And the beautiful thing is that he’s going to destroy it by simply allowing it free rein to be itself in its most hateful form.

What do you think? 😉

    I don’t think that he is that smart, but I could be wrong. If I am wrong, he is doing the country a great service.

    “My guess is that Trump has simply decided that the GOP is REALLY bad for business….”

    Yeah, right. The party who helps the rich rather than the middle class or the poor. They cut taxes for the wealthiest and businesses; deregulate everything they can get their hands on; increase military spending and start wars, thus providing more income for the profiteers etc, etc.

    The fact they don’t give a flying feck for the welfare of the people who earn their money by working for it, lowers the morale, slows down productivity and means fewer people have any money to spend to boost the economy, which is part of the reason the economy has historically done better under Democrats.

    Donald has no understanding of anything of any depth except: “I am the most amazing person who has ever walked on w̶a̶t̶e̶r̶ earth.” If he really thought the Dems were better for business he’d run as a Dem!

    They did a good segment on Trump on the news here tonight. They showed the McCain/not a hero clip, the Mexican fiasco and the “I am really, really rich” clip. They noted that Trump was stealing the oxygen from all of the other GOP candidates… It was very funny.

    I would call him a bloviating bullfrog.
    Except bullfrogs are smarter and better looking.

    Hello Irish! I have reserved making any comments in regards to The Donald, on any blog, until I got the facts right. The person who commented on The Guardian’s story may just be onto something; I am on a similar wavelength. He could be the one person who will make the GOP implode and destroy itself, and watch it rise from the dead. Perhaps he has had enough of this sad feckin’ soap opera, and he will be the white knight to save them. On the other hand, he just might play spoiler and switch allegiance. Besides, a businessman like The Donald can only declare Chapter 11 so many times before it becomes too embarrassing!

  6. I agree with Tumbleweed’s one word depiction . . . pretty much covers his manner in any and every interaction with folks. Is there really anyone he doesn’t treat with contempt? His he a younger version of the LA Clippers owner ?
