Picking a winner: Part 3 of the case for a Donald Trump Presidency

It is often wise to judge a man by those who hate him, and Donald H. Trump is hated by all of the right people. The nauseating spectacle of Barry the boy tyrant, and a previously unknown sexually-confused hospital radio broadcaster, basement bedroom dweller, and latterly 'comedian' mocking Trump at the White House Correspondents' Dinner only serves to confirm that Trump may be worth a serious look. The left is scared of him. Poll after poll shows that Mittens Romney, chat show Mike, and the pleasant-but-pointless Sarah Palin's positions as GOP front-runners are under threat, and it is easy to see why.

As observed previously on Sinking Spring , Donald Trump's appeal - and the source of his threat to the verminous buffoons at the White House tingly-legged love-fest tonight - is that, unlike the alternatives, he is not: a politician, a socialist, a double-talker, a partisan hack, a Washington insider, or a moron. Mittens is all of the above. Sure, chat show Mike may only be a partial moron, Palin may be only a partial Washington insider, and Pawlenty may only be a partial socialist, but Trump is not and these characteristics play pretty well at a time of double-digit unemployment, impending hyper-inflation, and a pompous Kenyan Marxist dictator occupying the White House.

It remains to be seen whether Trump is truly conservative enough, but don't be fooled by talk radio's scepticism: Levin, Rush, Hannity, and the odious Glenn Beck are as cynical and self-serving as any of the scum at the White House dinner; they fear the commercial ramifications of the emergence of a Republican leader who is not at their beck and call and cannot be summoned to the airwaves at a moment's notice.

Anyone who is despised simultaneously by the lame-stream leftwing media, the freakish Beltway hack , life-long Democrat, and somehow-Fox News' anointed GOP king-maker Charles Krauthammer, and the despicable Glenn Beck deserves a certain amount of respect. Step forward candidate Trump.

The No List: Mike Huckabee is not the right type of jerk

Barack Hussein Obama is not a nice person. He is a smarmy, petulant, self-righteous little boy who cannot form appropriate relationships with men and engages in horrid, submissive relationships with hideous, dominating women. The roots of Obama's lack of niceness are well documented, here as well as anywhere.

Being nice is not a prerequisite for the Presidency, but not being a cretin should be. A Presidential candidate can be a jerk, but he needs to be our kind of jerk. And so we arrive at Michael Call-me-Mike Huckabee, who is not a cretin, but is certainly not very nice.

Don't be fooled by Call Me Mike's shiny suit, his missing 200 pounds of midriff, or his Fox News issue flat top guitar. Chat Show Mikabee is a brutally opportunistic career politician, a tool, and a liberal. You do not become one of the left's least-hated Fox News Channel anchors without a certain amount of cynical strategizing, or without being a raging liberal. Bill O'Smarmy, Sean Hannity, and the crazed lunatic with the chalk board excite the medicated basement bedroom-dwelling Cheeto-munching degenerates known as the liberal blogosphere to orgasmic proportions every day, but Chat Show Mikabee does not.

This is in part because of the "nice" factor; how could this performing ape, this happy-clappy pastor-with-a-Martin be anything but a harmless old hack, right? Three years ago, Chat Show Mikabee handed the Presidency to the Boy Tyrant by fracturing and demoralizing the Republican Party such that John McCain emerged as the only man capable of fending off a 50 State socialist sweep. Long after his own path to the nomination had evaporated into a cloud of sing-songy compassionate-conservative big-government, big-smile, big-guitar crap, Chat Show Mikabee stayed around purely to block Mitt Romney's path to the ticket. Pastor Mike was entitled to have reservations about Romney's Mormonism, but was not entitled to sabotage a viable and competitive candidate from emerging from his party's nominating process. Whether he did so more out of a personal dislike of Romney, or in order to ensure that a Republican defeat would position him well for 2012, is not of particular importance.

Although he is not a cretin, Huck is not very nice, and the singy-songy self-serving nonsense that he pulled last time he ran - coupled with a remarkably Clintonesque record as Arkansas Governor - means that although he is a jerk, he is not my kind of jerk. Put him on the No List.

Picking a winner: Part 2 of the case for a Donald Trump Presidency

"Our weak President, who kisses everybody's ass, is in more wars than we've ever seen...and no-one respects us and nobody respects our leadership...can I do worse?"- so asked Donald Trump of Fox News' Bill O'Smarmy. O'Smarmy, the smug hack, didn't have an answer, but everyone else who has suffered through two relentless years of B. Hussein Obama's socialist revolution does. The putz Obambi has racked up more debt and a bigger deficit in two years than all 43 more worthy men to hold the Presidential office before him. Add to that Federal government death panels for the elderly, deliberate sabotage of the job market in the guise of healthcare policy and stimulus spending, the continued assault on the state of Israel, and a banana-republic style unauthorized declaration of war from the boy tyrant, and it is fairly clear that no-one could do worse.

The question is, could Trump be the man to simultaneously repair the damage that this clown, this loser, has wrought and regain this nation's rightful place in the world economy and geopolitical stage? Here he is in a clip from O'Smarmy's show; I lack the requisite skills to edit out the sanctimonious moron O'Smarmy, but here it is:

What is absolutely clear is that President Donald Trump would not be the laughing stock of the world, a man who emboldens our enemies and terrifies our friends. He would not overthrow friendly, stable regimes to allow the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda to threaten Israel in grave new ways. He would not bow down before the Saudi Royal family, host state dinners for the red Chinese dictatorship, or ban American companies from making our nation energy independent.

Trump may or may not be serious about running, and he may or may not have the credentials to win over social conservatives in a GOP primary. I am a long way, and many unanswered questions away, from an endorsement, but he is a strong man, a leader, and a winner.
