George Will Misses His Mark With An Arrow Aimed At Donald Trump

Trump struggles with unfavorable numbers

I’m generally a fan of columnist George Will, but in his December 23rd Washington Post opinion piece and attack on Donald Trump he misses his mark by a wide margin, which is unusual for this skilled writer.

If you are listening to the mainstream media, the GOP nomination is all but sewn-up and the establishment Republican apparatus has agita. What’s got the inside-the-beltway crowd so nervous and frustrated? Well, Donald Trump is up 13.1 points in the RealClearPolitics average of polls that survey ...

Time To Ram Rahm In The Rear And Let The Roosters Return Home To Roost


Rahm Emanuel is the wise-acre Obama staffer who conceived of the political policy of allowing no crisis to go to waste.  Under this philosophy the Obama administration used the Clinton-caused real estate melt-down and the resulting stock market crash to convince the idiots in Washington to give Obama a trillion dollars and unlimited credit in order to save the nation ...
