I have been struggling to see the appeal of Donald Trump, but he sure seems to have it. He is obviously unqualified; his knowledge about important things is very thin; he doesn't have the temperament to govern; he has a temper, etc., etc.
His answer to difficult questions is, "I'll find someone who knows something about that." He is not electable cause he hates blacks, gays, women and minorities, but I don't think the other candidates have much chance either, especially given the content of the debates. Sort of like junior high school. Nah, nah, nah, nah.
However, it occurred to me today why the leaders of the Republican Party are in such a panic. Trump is moving the party to the left philosophically and is leaving the dysfunctional Tea Party behind.
While his other liabilities are too great to get elected, he may, in the end, prove to be more attractive to mainstream voters that the far right. This is what caucuses are proving.
In addition, he wants to work with the Democrats, a radical idea. Real Republicans don't do that. What a dilemma!
If the party repudiates him for a more conservative last-minute candidate, they will lose the election by splitting the vote and making a third party.
Interesting. Will have to wait to see what the circus does next. Bring on more clowns and jugglers.
