Donald Trump has been unable to say anything wrong — until now

Donald Trump is the front-runner for the republican nomination for President of the United States.  I have taken some heat from my conservative listeners and followers.  I truly think he’s been a breath of fresh air in this process and has energized the voices of those of us who oppose the direction in which our country is going.  As far as his success so far, the big media is in disbelief.  The democrats are scared to death.  The old guard of the republican party aren’t showing him any love.  But, everyday Americans are hearing his words and they are resonating with them.  He has sparred with many of the other candidates.  Called them names.  He has little to no filter.  Again, that’s a huge part of why so many are supporting him.

He said John McCain wasn’t a war hero — then said he was.  His numbers went up.  He said Rick Perry put on glasses to look smart.  His numbers went up.  He said Megyn Kelly had blood coming out of her “wherever.”  His numbers went up.  But, in his attacks on Jeb Bush he’s doing something I believe will show a chink in his filter-less verbal armor.  He’s going after former president George W. Bush.

The last candidate who did that was the current president.  Trump is selling himself as a candidate who is the anti-Obama.  He calls this administration “stupid.”  Yet, he’s employing the same tactic Obama used.  Some might think it’s brilliant.  Heck, Obama won big time — twice by aligning the republicans running to the former White House holder.  But, center-right, moderate-right, right-right and far-right voters have a great affinity for “W.”

McCain was just flat beaten in 2008.  He was a horrible candidate who made some huge mistakes on the trail.  But, Romney’s loss was more about conservatives staying home and sitting on their hands on election day.  We the electorate have shown Trump, Carson and Fiorina we are very ready for an outsider to come in and clean up Washington and get this country back on track after what will be eight years of a president whose horrendous decisions and policies have us in a very bad place domestically and beyond.  The one thing that will force us to disengage is any of them — as Trump seems to be lately — as the anti-Bush.  We want the antithesis of Obama to energize us.

Those of us who felt G.W. Bush was head-and-shoulders above the current resident at 1600 Pennsylvania are not amused nor are we in agreement with this tactic.  I’d suggest you keep the focus on what we really care about and what affects us.  You’ve done a nice job up ’til now on the economy, illegal immigration, Iran, Russia, China et al.  If you think this is just one viewpoint from one guy, I would suggest you read the comments on your own Facebook thread.

    There is much written on the corruption of the Bush's. If the 28 pages of evidence in the 9/11 incident were declassified, would it reveal negative findings about the Bush's? Many believe that he lied and started war in Iraq that has had multiple bad consequences. Is Donald Trump just stating truths that need to be exposed? One reason Democrats/Liberals do not like the Republicans is Bush and if we (Conservatives) need to convince previous Liberal voters to our side, and I believe we need to so we don't have the same results as the last two elections, expressing a concern about the bush's would not do US any harm on that account. Just sayin...

        Diane DeMiro has a great point and I agree with her . I have family in Texas who live near the Bush's and they despise the old man. The whole family is pro-amnesty, open borders with Mexico and will lie to us the little people.

      Writing "Just sayin..." adds nothing of value to your post.

    There is nothing anywhere at anytime that has been able to prove any if these outrageous allegations. It is considered that what us being held back is the complete utter lack of serious efforts to prepare and combat attacks such as 9/11. And that many career politicians and government officials would be shown in a bad light. 7 years of Obama, in 2006 Democrats took control of House and Senate and quickly dismantled everything Bush attempted to achieve. So that's truly 10 years of Democratic hell for the American people and you still point your finger at Bush. 10 years of Obama, Reid, Pelosi pulling the strings and who fault is it. Americans are bunch of IDIOTS.

    I did not see Trump's comment as "going after" GW---he simply said it happened on GW's watch. If our immigration policies were in order and being followed---it would not have happened.

    The 9/11 attack did NOT happen with a snap of the fingers. It required plenty of planning and training. Those Saudi men entered the U.S. on student visas or whatever visas, and quickly disappeared. Then they went into training mode. They went to flying schools and learned how to fly planes and refused to learn how to land. Some Red Flags went up but the FBI refused to do anything about the calls they were getting about these strange men. Who was President while these men were here planning & training for this attack? BILL CLINTON, that's who. It REALLY was on his watch that all this went on. The timing of the actual date was only because George Bush had been sworn in shortly before. This attack on our soil was truly BILL CLINTON's FAULT because #1. he didn't think Bin Laden was a threat, so he didn't go after him. There IS a statement where he actually says this. #2. Bill was too busy chasing "SKIRT". 'nuff said

      You are correct, but some people, like Joe Pags, are confusing "fault" with "responsibility. 9-11 was mainly Clinton's fault, but since it happened on Bush's watch, he was responsible (but also responsive).

    Fact. Trump warned about a terrorist attack that would make the world trade center look like kids playing with fire works IN FEBRUARY 2010, IN HIS BOOK. Fact. The terrorist that were involved in 9/11 overstayed their VISAs. If we had a greater hold on our borders and held sanctuary states accountable for BREAKING THE LAW, this may have been avoided. This is what Trump was speaking to, and he is 100% correct.
