Boys Behaving Badly

I have never been so disgusted in all my life.  The campaigns, both of them, are a pretty sorry example of what this country is supposed to be about.  It's down right embarrassing.

Trump is one thing.  He seems to relish having his foot in his mouth.  But now, in desperation according to some sources, both Rubio the boy wonder and Cruz the crusader  have stooped to his level of invective.  What happened to their campaigns?  How long has it been since they actually laid out policy instead of throwing dirt at Trump and each other hoping something will stick and save their ambitions?

To me they're not making their point.  They're whining.  And Cruz had best be careful insinuating Trump has ties to the mob.  When you think about it you have to wonder if any of them are actually running because they want to help the country or is it merely to fulfill their ambitions?  There is a huge difference.  Look at Hillary!

Last go round I really hoped Romney would win but as difficult as its been, I'm glad he didn't.  I never thought he would stoop to Cruz's or Rubio's level with insinuation without grounds. There might be a bomb shell in Trump's tax returns.

Cruz again, I could care less if Trump is actually as rich as he says he is.  Trump, I could care less how much Rubio sweats.  Rubio strikes me as a kid swinging madly at a much larger opponent who is holding him off with a hand on his head yet unable to strike a damaging blow.

The media doesn't get a pass either.  You'd think the debate moderators could aim some questions at Carson and Kasich and elicit something useful for those listening rather than feeding the verbal brawl.

I can't even begin to go after the Democrats even though there is only two of them.  I do not like nor trust Hillary and think there is yet another shoe to fall, maybe two.  Benghazi and the e-mails.  I know my Democratic friends will tell me nothing has been proven but evidence is mounting.  Does it matter?  To me it does.  It goes to character and  unwarrented privilege.

Sanders?  If you want the government involved in every aspect of your life he's your man.  I don't.

I'll be glad when Super Tuesday is over and done with.  The direction of the races will be pretty predictable at that point.

For the moment I'm in a quandary.  With the exception of Carson and Kasich, there is not one who rates my vote.  It's too bad the circus has come to town.  With the world situation such as it is I don't understand why none of the headliners have anything concrete to offer.  Does it matter?  Well, we can see now what seven plus years of disengagement has done. So will the adults in the room, assuming there are any, please stand up?

I like Kasich.. at least what I see of him.. i don't know if he has feet of clay or not.. as he and Carson don't even get to talk.. even the cameras shy away from them.. when the debate is one, you would think there is only 3 guys in this race. And I wish the moderators, would turn off the mike when the person goes over the 3 minutes..or if they over speak the others.. They really need a mike person who can do just that.. wouldn't that be a marvelous thing. So far, what I see, scares the hell out of me.
