I am glad Trump is bowing out as a presidential candidate. He would probably only hurt the election by drawing people away from other “more real candidates”.* He has said some worthwhile things but he has also said some really foolish things. He did show he could taken on the president in a war of words. But after the way he was attacked at the press club gathering a few weeks ago, he seemed really quiet. Maybe he couldn’t take the heat.
More likely he saw that they would go to great lengths, both the media and the Democrats, to try to destroy his name and he wisely chose not to let that happen.
Politics is a nasty, ugly business. We get crappy choices because of the sick carnival it has turned into. I suspect Romney will do very well now as he is a strong contender. But I find him too slick. What happens in the rest of this year should be interesting, but it won’t be till next year til we know who the candidate will be. All talk right now is pure speculation.
* I don’t think most candidates are very real in the long run since they become so compromised by special interests supporters. That’s politics.
