Trump Speech on CNN after Super Tuesday

From The Last English Prince:
Donald Trump provided a magnificent display of conceptual leadership during his remarks tonight. 
He stated he is a “Truth Teller”. His ability to identify and speak strongly regarding weaknesses in our governance is astounding. 
The Middle Class: We have been forgotten 
Corporate Inversion: He will work to reverse it 
Trade deficits: He will call to account. 
Illegal immigrants: “Either we have a country or we don’t. Either we have borders or we don’t.” 
Planned Parenthood: Yes, fund for women’s health. Defund for abortions. 
Islamic radicalism: A disaster everywhere you look – he will negotiate with the Gulf States to fund safe zones inside Syria for Syrian refugees. He noted that strong and powerful young adult Muslim (refugee) males do indeed present as a problem within Europe. 
Our aging infrastructure: We look like a third world country 
U.S. Military: It will be strengthened. No one will threaten us. Period. 
Common Core: He will get rid of it. Our children deserve smart education. 
Hillary Clinton: Other individuals have paid a high price for lesser offences than her own. He also noted that the problems she complained about are the ones she had an opportunity to work on in the prior decade. 
I think this is a very good summation of the CONTENT of a Donald Trump speech.

Trump appearances are so much about spectacle that the content gets lost.

When you break down what he says, it is clear why he is resonating with so many Americans who rightly feel their political leaders have betrayed them.


Oh, and by the way, for my part, I'm getting awfully sick of the libel against Trump about supporting David Duke. It's a steaming pile:

The Worst Thing About The Trump/David Duke Setup

Knowing fill well the history of Trump refusing to run in the Reform Party because of Duke's presence in 2000.

But that Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz never thought twice about joining with the media in the latest political attack. Since the Nevada Caucus the NetRoots on the left have been pushing, building a Trump KKK internet straw man.

Cruz and Rubio had no problem joining the party.

I thought this speech/press conference was very presidential. Well done Trump.

And you're absolutely right about the David Duke thing.

Something, lost in the Duke story, and where was Tapper on this..

Hopefully regarding the Duke thing this will kill it and why Trump has not TRUMPETED it is beyond me -

Trump's DAUGHTER is an orthodox JEW.

Calling Mr DUKE - you in for an orthodox jew calling dad to change policies? I mean that's your MEME, right?

Trump's daughter is an Orthodox Jew? I did not know that.

Now, imagine if you were Donald Trump, and that was your family, and then you start getting asked by various snot-dripping journalists, "Are you a racists, are you a racist, are you a racist?"

I'd get sick of it too.

In fact, this happens in my life. My family is the United Nations personified. And yet, here at IBA, and some other times, when I express my political opinions, I get the racist word thrown at me.

My reaction, internally, is alway, "Are you fucking kidding me/"

I've learned not to react much at all anymore, however.

I'm so sick of it, I pretty much just won't acknowledge such bullshit at this point.

Pasto, did you see this? Sounds like a threat to me. This was the caption on a video that I couldn't figure out how to to put in these comments. Hayden was talking with Bill Mahr.

The former head of the NSA & CIA says Donald J. Trump's campaign promises could cause a military revolt.

Marco Rubio is a typical politician who is just an opportunist. I've been surprised and disgusted with Cruz's behavior though. That dude acts like Obama in terms of opportunist behavior.
