No need or reason to even get into his fault/their fault, legislation, exec orders, bully pulpit choices, senate obstruction, fact Dems controlled floor for first term, leadership failings or blah blah blah. No need to even discuss any of the multi-party stuff, at all.

One need only look exclusively at plethora of The President's own individual actions, words, decisions & directives to see an inarguable disaster. It would take forever to list all the outrageous stuff. Just insanity. Inexplicable.

TRUMP IN St. Louis @ Noon Today!

Doors will open at the Peabody at 9 a.m. Friday, there was already a slight police presence for Trump and his supporters on Thursday night. Protesters are expected to also attend the event. 3,000 seats, which is a tiny rally by Trump standards.

Really strange how the GOP is piling on against him. They don't like Cruz either. Wouldn't it be odd if Kasich came out of nowhere and gained the nomination? Just an odd, yet interesting, election season this time.

I think that's what much of the GOP is hoping for. A brokered convention where either Kasich or Paul Ryan takes the nomination. Polling says Kasich actually fairs the best in the general by far. Unfortunately for the GOP, if Kasich gets the nomination and Trump runs third party, Kasich won't be much more than a sacrificial land in November.

Trump won't run 3rd party. He'd have ZERO chance & have to spend a fortune of his own money. IMO.


BTW - the Ben Carson endorsement & it's committed depth of long-term association is huge. By far biggest endorsement of the race.

32 arrested at the Trump rally in STL. Chicago event was cancelled.

I'm going to early vote tomorrow morning. Still totally undecided who will get my primary vote.

I don't think the Carson endorsement was really that big. Ben didn't do anything in any of the primaries, I think he came in last in all but one. Add the fact that Rubio and Kasich really don't have a path to the White House and Cruz tried to screw him over in Iowa, he was pretty much left without much of an option if he chose to stick with the party line.

It's gonna be really interesting to see what happens Tuesday. Unfortunately I think the events in Chicago may have only helped Trump.

Randy Kendrick, whose husband, Ken, owns the Arizona Diamondbacks baseball team, knows that her very public opposition to Donald Trump might alienate some fans. Ken told her he's OK with that.
“He said, ‘Randy, if we stand up for what we know to be moral and correct—if 100,000 people decide they will not go to a Diamondbacks game, we've stood up for the right thing,’” Kendrick said by phone from her home in a Phoenix suburb Wednesday. “I hope he keeps feeling that way!”
Kendrick is part of a group of conservative donors across the country who have poured tens of millions of dollars into a last-ditch advertising campaign to halt Trump’s march to the Republican presidential nomination. The primary battle moves to Kendrick’s home state this week, with Trump planning a major rally there Saturday, three days before the primary.
At least three major political groups are funding the ad campaign: Club for Growth, American Future Fund, and Our Principles PAC. In all, these outside groups have disclosed spending $28 million on anti-Trump advertising, most of it in just the last couple of weeks, according to Federal Election Commission data.
Kendrick is one of the few donors who have been willing to publicly discuss their participation in the campaign; she said others have been concerned that Trump would try to intimidate them. Last month, Marlene Ricketts, a member of the Omaha family that founded TD Ameritrade and owns the Chicago Cubs, was revealed in FEC filings to have given $3 million to one of the groups.
