Invulnerable

AN EDITED VERSION OF THIS POST IS SCHEDULED TO APPEAR IN THE RECORD,  A BERGEN COUNTY NEWSPAPER

Mr. Trump appears invulnerable to attack. The 2008 party nominee, Mr. McCain, is deemed no hero, but a loser for being captured.  Mr. Romney, the 2012 standard-bearer, blew the chance to dethrone a reviled President. Even the Pope should just mind his own business.

The slings and arrows of Mr. Cruz and Mr. Rubio are swatted away by Mr. Trump as if they were petty annoyances. The size of his hands. "Really", Mr. Trump seems to be saying, "is that the best you've got?" 

In this the year of the implosion of the political process, where the Republican party is in open defiance against the President, unwilling to concede his authority to even place before them a nominee for the Supreme Court, all our understood conventions have been cast asunder.

So while the elder statesmen of the party, like Mr. Romney may castigate Mr. Trump and warn of the pending apocalypse, their voices are drowned out by the sounds of the cheering throngs welcoming the man who will save them from those who have tried and failed. The weak, like Mr. Bush. The incapable, like Mr. Rubio. The vile, like Mr. Cruz. 

And the losers like Mr. McCain, and yes, Mr. Romney.

Trump has invoked the most disgusting and disgraceful attempts to introduce fascism to the United States by asking his minions to raise their hands, like Mussolini did, and pledge their undying support. Any those who engage, have no clue of what they're doing. This is my main argument for common-core. We obviously have done a terrible job at educating our youth.

The sad thing is that I would rather have Trump than Cruz
