I might also suggest they want someone to talk solutions and not just talk about how bad the other candidate is or harp on some social issue that won't be solved anyway.


Not sure what social issue you're referring to, but I hope we've all learned by now that social issues are where the game is being played - where Republicans were played like fools for the past 25 years.

We all like to say, "politics is downstream from culture," but we never realized that acceding to cultural liberalism is a big part of how we've let the politics also go so far left on us. We thought we could disregard private morality, and our progeny would still retain the public morality, civic virtue, etc. Men without chests...

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the scenario I consider likely:  Trump will lose the primary and run as an independent.  Then he will be as nasty to the R's as he is to anybody else that doesn't consider him 100 right about everything.  That would be bad, but I can see his ego driving him that way.

You beat me to it with your post.  That would guarantee another D in the White House no matter who it was. 

My state of Michigan went full D from the re electing Whitmer et al + a house and senate that is D for the first time in decades, and a supreme court which will wind up leftist Ds in the majority.  Heck even conservative W. Michigan where I live went D. 

Gotta hand it to the Marxists from the 60's and 70's.  They have been working overtime for 50+ years and have dumbed down a good deal of the population as they control the media, schools, industry, government and even churches.  Couple in some willful ignorance, apathy, and voting machinations I'd say America as a bastion of freedom is pretty much over.

Enter Hollyweird with some weirdness where DeSantis is accused of sexual assault in a show
How does this related to OP you may ask. Well......

Quote
The series finale of Paramount+ "The Good Fight" left social media users stunned on Thursday for featuring a plot in which a character claimed to be sexually assaulted by Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, only to confess he was lying later on in the show.

Quote
Diane immediately dismisses the accusation as politically motivated "bulls---" despite Staples claiming to have DNA proof. The lawyers spend the episode gathering evidence to expose Staples for lying. He eventually confesses to fabricating the allegations to tarnish the Florida governor's reputation, because it will put former President Trump "ahead in the polling" in 2024's presidential race.

Very very weird but not really all that shocking they would do something like this to get DeSantis and an association with sexual assault stuck in people minds and drag Trump into it as well :O
In some ways you got to admire their craftiness.

What the *expletive deleted*ck is Trump doing?

https://twitchy.com/sarahd-313035/2022/11/11/donald-trump-shifts-his-attention-to-attacking-glenn-youngkin-whose-last-name-sounds-chinese/

I've never liked his Junior High stuff, but when it was against the other side I could at least just dismiss it with a "grow up, man". These sudden attacks against successful Republicans who have been doing good things in their states is just mind blowing.

Same thing he's always done. He fights.
In the moral, catatonic stupor America finds itself in today it is only disagreement we seek, and the more virulent that disagreement, the better.

He's always treated his allies like garbage whenever the notion took him.

Remember him viscously insulting Sessions in public?

Remember him insulting Cruz's wife with an ugly meme?

He let all the Jan 6 defendants rot in jail and didn't do a thing to help them.

This sums it up for me:

Obviously, Liz Cheney won't be the nominee, but we could still get somebody worse than Trump, better than Liz.

Sadly, no one really suggested Cheney/Abrams as presidential running mates. They were talking about them being Biden's "czars" of election "reform."

Agree with this:

Quote
I supported Trump when and because he was a vehicle for achieving my ultimate goal: saving America and indeed Western Civilization from the creeping Marxism that is growing like a fungus over everything. Woke ideology, socialist/fascist economics, the Bond-villain Elite™, the administrative state–all these are enemies of all that is right and true and just.

Trump himself? He always struck me as a showman and a huckster without a heart of gold. But so what? He was fighting the right fights and doing the world a lot of good, so unlike many, I was indifferent to his tantrums, tweets, and hyperbole. All those things annoyed me, but it was also fun to watch the Left go postal every time he spoke. So there was some compensation for all the drama.


I also appreciate that the article didn't bother with any nonsense about "racism." Saying Youngkin sounds like a Chinese name is dumb, but racist? No, not at all. I'm beyond tired of people screeching RACISM!!! just because somebody mentioned non-whites with something less than reverent awe.

If he didn't say it sounded Chinese Joy Reid would be saying that's racist.

It's going to be Kevin McCarthy.  Almost as worthless as McConnell in the Senate.

Which is something I would hope Trump is prepared for.  To do it without the RNC. 

At this point, there is no guarantee DeSantic will run, and I can't think of anyone else on the R side that would be better than Trump.  Trump is still a guy who makes the left and the establishment types have fits and I still like that trait. 

Even the primary elections are a very long way away at this point.
