Now is almost the Winter of our Discontent

Summer turns into fall. Every year it seems it does anyway.

Politically, Trump still amazes everyone by leaving all other GOP candidates for the nomination in the dust. Regardless of what verbal gaffe's Trump throws out or how much manure he steps in, he continues leading in all polls, and in fact has increased his lead in some. Walker is out, Perry is out, and Biden today said he wouldn't jump into the race.

Clinton appears to stay on course for the socialist nomination. After watching the CNN debate, it is apparent that the Democratic Party has gone far left. Bernie Sands has done the impossible and has made Clinton look almost conservative. Jim Webb said fuck this and has walked out of that cesspool and appears to be considering going GOP.

Again my loyal reader(s) it still appears Trump has tapped into that gigantic spring of hatred the run of the mill GOP voter holds toward our elected officials and the leaders of the GOP. Mainstream politicians cannot grasp the fact that Trump has seized the mantle of outsider. Three years after congratulating Obama on winning reelection, Trump has support of all spectrums of the GOP. Who'd have thunk it.

Discontent. Anger. Rage. Fury at being betrayed. These are the emotions that drive people to the polls. If Trump can continue to channel these emotions, he will be the GOP nominee, and he will have a good chance to become POTUS.

Fear and Loathing in the GOP: We can't maintain a Boehner

Well, highly ineffective Speaker of the House John Boehner decided to call it a day and resign. Color Nixon over fucking whelmed. Boehner was a limp, flacid Speaker, without any redeeming qualities. While Nixon is glad to see him gone, don't get your hopes up for a conservative Speaker. It ain't gonna happen.

Trump is still trumping the competition, almost at immune to verbal gaffe level 20. Literally none of his non conservative statements or verbal gaffes have impacted his poll standing. Speculation on the GOP side is mainly confined to which of the 20 candidates will be dropping out next. Rand Paul hopefully is the next, as Nixon has never liked him and feels he is over rated. 

More to come, rapidly approaching 5 months til someone can be voted for.

Trump Trump Trump but not a drop to Trump

That Donald Trump continues to be the frontrunner, six months out from the first voting, for the GOP nomination. Six months in politics is forever, or at least long enough for Barak Obama and Hillary Clinton to change their views on same sex marriage. Lots of campaigning, public speaking events, etc to be done before any votes are cast.

I think a lot, and I mean a shit load of people are underestimating is the tremendous level of political discontent amongst conservatives and moderates with the way their elected officials have drastically underperformed once they are elected. The right side of the GOP is approaching stoning level of hatred for the Congressional leadership that WE put into office and power. Trump has tapped into that anger.

Maybe he wins, maybe he doesn't. But ignoring legions of pissed off voters is not a great idea. Then again, when has the GOP leadership shown any intelligence, spine, or guts lately?

POTUS Trump. Can't be worse than Obama.

Hi again. Been living on twitter a lot, thought I'd visit the old homestead.

Like most, Nixon has been shocked at the meteoric rise and continuing rise of Donald Trump in the hunt for GOP Presidential nomination. Face it kids, he isn't your dad's Republican. Or pretty much anyone's idea of a conservative.

However, what Trump has done is tap into the gigantic amount of discontent with the political structure and inept governing of both political parties that is widespread in the US. Can he ride this discontent to the White House? I'm not sure of that. But anyone counting Trump out this early in the race is making a gigantic mistake.

Hell, Obama won twice. Anything can happen.
