Another One Bites The Dust

Another one's gone, another one's gone, another one bites the dust - always did like that song; but this isn't about the song, it's about another GOP Presidential candidate and mores, the rest of the GOP field of them.

"5 GOP candidates who should follow Jindal out the door," Web Link

We knew it had to happen and we also know many more are to come, but when it actually happens, some give pause.

From this piece: "A young, good looking Indian-American governor decides to run for president. He's a Rhodes scholar. He’s the first Indian-American ever to run for the nation's highest office. If he'd been a Democrat, they'd have cancelled the primaries and declared him the nominee. He'd have had so much press coverage that the national news media would have gone into full TMZ mode and the average person on the street would know that his given name is Piyush."

"But, alas, Jindal was a Republican, which really sucked all the magic out of the whole First-Indian-American-to-run lede." Yeah, what a shame. Those republicans have "sucked all the magic out of the whole" election process.

More from the piece: "One of the great ironies of this unprecedented GOP primary is that candidates are constantly lecturing voters on the dangers of electing Donald Trump while — at the same time — they unnecessarily stay in the race, accomplishing nothing beyond slivering off their own tiny portion of the anti-Trump vote. In the end, if Trump gets the nomination, it won't be the fault of GOP primary voters; it will be the fault of those who put their presidential ambitions above the fate of the country." Amen and +1.

More: "Here are five Republican candidates who should withdraw for the greater good." I have a higher number in mind, but 5 more is a start. Read the piece to see who might/should be next.

What an election cycle, huh?


That's amazing!

JIndal's supporter has agreed to move over to Marco Rubio, yet another pious pompadour POTUS pipsqueak.

"Lindsey Graham drops out of 2016 presidential race", Web Link

Another substantial blow - huge loss> A real surprise!!

And another one's gone, another one's gone, another one bites the dust.

Question now is; when will the rest of the fools quit? I'd bet that 95% or more of American voters couldn't name all the current GOP candidates left. That tells you something right there.

Funny thing; if all the GOP candidates that are self-promotional bigots were to quit the GOP wouldn't have Any offerings for this Presidential election.

This, of course, comes as no surprise, but the silver lining here? - “I’m not going to suspend my desire to help the country." Whew, for a minute there I thought he was just giving up altogether!

As we say goodbye to Graham, let's give credit where do: "Lindsey Graham’s best one-liners from the 2016 campaign", Web Link

The guy has a sense of humor. That's more than I can say for almost all the rest of the GOP leadership and offerings.

The GOP has lost three (4) candidates so far; Perry, Jindal, Walker and Graham. No big deal; no leaders in that bunch.

It appears we can add another to the list of quitters: "Former Gov. George Pataki Says He Plans To Drop Out Of Presidential Race", Web Link

Some think that out of the bunch Pataki was the best, but like any other GOP candidate not named Trump, Pataki just couldn't get his oars and rudder in the water ... no traction and no vision.

So, another one bites the dust! There are currently 3 Democrats and 12 Republicans still in the presidential race.

I'm on the edge of my seat to see who's next. It would make everyones' life simpler if those polling below say 5% take a hike, and the sooner the better. That would narrow the field to a realistic and manageable bunch.

In the end, however, I doubt that it really matters who stays and continues to spend others money in self-promotion. It appears to be Hillary's race to lose at this point.

Time will tell.

Yeah, I just caught that; "The GOP has lost three (4) candidates so far;" Obviously I am having a moment. It should read: "The GOP has lost four (4) candidates so far;"

Just a stupid attack on my part. Sorry.
