Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Bush Didn't Keep Us Safe

The current contretemps between Jeb! and the Donald over whether George Bush kept us safe is a great example of why Trump is winning and Jeb is an also-ran.  As long as we are talking about Dubya, Jeb will lose.  Trump knows how to keep the focus on an opponent's weaknesses and he is completely alpha-dogging Bush.

The "Bush kept us safe" lie is easily enough to expose.  Over 4,000 dead in Iraq, the Twin Towers and Katrina.  I mean he was a complete disaster.  Half the people running for the Democratic nomination are Democrats because Dubya was president.

Well played Donald.
