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.

Too Late

Apparently, the Trump campaign has realized that its deportation scheme is unworkable and politically toxic.  Apparently, Trump is also trying to link he plan to Obama's aggressive deportation practices, which were part of an effort to get immigration reform passed a few years back.

The idea that Trump can moderate his positions is predicated on the idea that his positions are important to his followers and opponents.  Trump HAS no positions, not really.  He has an attitude. That attitude can't change, because Trump can't change.

Most importantly, Trump has shown his ass for a year now - actually over several decades.  We know who this guy is.  You can't redefine him two and a half months before the election.
