Watch the Donald Trump Also Blow New Hampshire
Donald Trump lost Iowa by 4 points to Senator Ted Cruz. The celebrity candidate gave a gracious concession speech and later conceded he was out-organized by the Senator and should have participated in the last debate. But then the petulant Donald trump emerged from his shell. No more Mr. Nice Guy – just another sore loser. American loves likable losers, such as Marv Throneberry and the Marvelous Mets of 1962, Rudy, Eddie the Eagle, and the Jamaican Bobsled Team. Donald trump blew his lead in the polls in Iowa by puling out of the debate. He is now blowing his lead in the polls in New Hampshire by pulling a petulant Richard Nixon who, after losing the 1962 California gubernatorial election, told the media “You won’t have Dick Nixon to kick around anymore.” The Donald is accusing the Canadian anchor baby of voter fraud, and demanding not a recount, but a redo of the election. Donald Trump is delusional. Maybe the Cruz Campaign deliberately spread a misstatement about Dr. Ben Carson pulling out of the race right before the caucus votes. Maybe it was intentional. Maybe it was a miscommunication. Maybe it was an innocent mistake. This is the Presidential Election. It is not conducted by Marquis of Queensberry Rules. It is hard nosed, bare knuckle politics. Americans want a fighter to be President – not a whiny loser. Donald Trump made his fortune in New York real estate development. He understands ruthless competition. Or does he? He knows how to court politicians. He doesn’t know how to be elected. The Donald is a blustering, bluffing bully. Voters have caught up to the entertainer’s schtict. All for the show. The polls show him still in the lead in New Hampshire. They also show him slipping with Senators Rubio and Cruz, and Governors Kasich and Bush gaining. The trump Curve is on the way down. He ducked the Iowa Debate and now the New Hampshire snowstorm. He once again lacks a ground game in the state. Donald Trump is once again snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. He will soon be a footnote in the history books. It’s tough being a political apprentice in the Presidential election. It’s even tougher when your personality gets in the way. Atlantic City casinos should give him the same odds they had when he led them into bankruptcy. Iowa and New Hampshire are performing their role in the Presidential Election. This election is literally for the future of America. The Donald is not the one. America knows it. He knows it. When I'm wrong, I'm wrong.
