Let's talk about Trump.... No matter what, Donald Trump has surged to a real lead in the polls for the GOP race for the presidential nomination


Let's talk about Trump....   He is as critical of most Republicans as he is of Democrats, like Obama and Hillary Clinton

Let's talk about Trump....  He has hit a chord with some group of Americans, mostly Republican men  ---  however big or small that group might be

Let's talk about Trump....  Even when he trips over his own negative  remarks about  John McCain's war record,  Trump is the biggest story in the news  ---   Like,  getting on the front page of the Sunday NY Times



According to a report in CNN's blog   "Laconia, New Hampshire  --  (CNN)Donald Trump, surging in the polls, arrived at this lakeside enclave and trained his ire on perhaps the only target that aggravates his supporters as much as the Obama Administration: Republicans....   'They're all talk, they're no action,' Trump said, revving up his fiery takedown of politicians....  'I'm more disappointed in many ways with the Republicans,' Trump said.  'They have this great indignation, whether it's Benghazi or the emails... nothing ever happens.'..."   ( See "Why Donald Trump is surging in the polls"  by Sara Murray, 7/18/15, CNN [http://www.cnn.com/2015/07/17/politics/donald-trump-summer-surge/]).

CNN's reporting also indicated,  "Trump is enjoying a summer surge as he takes the lead in a poll of Republican presidential contenders released on Friday. The billionaire businessman is offending Hispanics and irking his GOP competitors but it's clear that his in-your-face demeanor and willingness to take on President Barack Obama -- then just as quickly turn his sharp tongue toward members of his own party -- is winning over Republican voters...."


TRUMP'S MC CAIN REMARKS WILL BE THE AT LEAST ONE OF THE BIG NEWS STORIES THIS SUNDAY  ---   MAYBE EVEN THE BIGGEST

The latest news is that the NY Times will be doing a few articles about Donald Trump in tomorrow's editions of the paper.  At least one of those stories will on the front page  ---  unless I'm wrong about what day it is, that means Trump will have another big story on page one of the Sunday Times....   There are many in politics that say there is no such thing as bad publicity (Right now, I'm pretty sure that Hillary Clinton would disagree, but we'll discuss that some other time).  You can also be sure that the Donald Trump -- John McCain story will probably be on most, if not all, of the Sunday network and cable news programs.

No matter what  gets done or said this Sunday vis a vis Donald Trump will necessarily end his "Campaign" for the presidency.

Donald Trump and only Donald Trump will decide if he wants to dig out of this.  However, only Trump, himself, will decide if that's the course that he will pursue.  If the past is any guide, Trump might well decide to own this episode -- and then, to double-down against McCain somehow.

One of my favorite phrases here at "Galewyn Massey... Fountainhead" is completely appropriate for "THE DONALD" and these circumstances  --  LET'S SEE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT . . . .

No Galey. Donald Trump will not decide if he can dig his way out. Draft dodgers should not attack war heros.

RESPONSE: THE "HAPPY TALK, KEEP TALKIN' HAPPY TALK, TALK ABOUT THINGS YOU LIKE..." EDITION

FORGET ABOUT HEROES IN OUR PAST LOST WARS --- WE NEED HEROES FOR OUR "NEXT" WAR

SINCE VE DAY 1945, WHEN SOVIET RUSSIA WAS OUR ALLY, WE HAVE NOT WON A WAR WITHOUT DROPPING NUCLEAR WEAPONS -- YES, THAT'S SEVENTY YEARS [LESS A MONTH] WITHOUT A WIN [VJ DAY WAS IN 1945 TOO]

BUT THANKS TO OBAMA, WE MAY HAVE TO GO BACK TO OUR WINNING GAME PLAN IN THE NOW-INEVITABLE IRAN ATOMIC WAR

Instead of being a "war hero" in the war he helped Johnson and Nixon to lose, John McCain can provide vocal accompaniment singing "Bomb, bomb, bomb --- bomb, bomb Iran..." [to the Beach Boys' "Barbra-Ann"; instead of Vera Lynn singing, "We'll Meet Again" like she did to "Dr. Strangelove"]. That way he can be one of the heroes we need in our next war.

AH, Happy Days are here again....

At least draft dodging bill Clinton was smart enough to keep his mouth shut about war hero Bob Dole.

BTW: THE "FOR THOSE WHO THINK THEY HAVE AN EDUCATED OPINION ABOUT POWS AND VETERANS ALL BEING 'HEROES'" EDITION

MAYBE YOU NEED TO ROUND-OUT YOUR READING -- JUST A BIT

If you haven't read "NOT ALL VIETNAM POWS WERE CREATED EQUAL -- HEROES or HUCKSTERS?" by Gordon Duff, Senior Editor, 9/18/09, Veterans Today [http://www.veteranstoday.com/2009/09/18/not-all-vietnam-pows-were-created-equal/]; then you need to read it ASAP.

Also, for the record, there are plenty of good people who view John McCain as anything but a "hero" ( See "John Mccain Exposed By Vietnam Vets And Pow's" [with video link] 7/23/13 [https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=B3JbyNmpZZE]).
