What did we learn from the New Hampshire primary? Nothing really.
1 – How does an immensely bland character like Kasich take second? Kasich may get a bump but he will never beat the big three the rest of the way, so his silver medal in New Hampshire accounts for…..nothing really.
2 – How does political bench warmer Bush tie with Cruz and Rubio? He got smoked in Iowa, spent millions in New Hampshire, his and Kasich’s delegate count combined doesn’t top Cruz or come close to Trump. So what to make of the three way tie in NH…nothing really.
3 – How does the old socialist wax Shillary and still get less delegates? Bernie took the witch to the wood shed and the landslide should have given him a lead in the delegate count but due to DNC rules super delegates get to choose their own candidate regardless of the popular vote, so Hillary gets 15, Bernie gets 13. What did his landslide mean…nothing really.
I don’t know the politics in New Hampshire but they seem to be a confused lot.
I don’t want to get too deep into the anthropological weeds, but there are a class of men with varying degrees of economic and cultural success, rooted in what we used to call working class values. These are men who get married to one biological women, have kids and do what was necessary to make sure the wife and kids have a good life. They may have been in the service, some went to college, while others went into the trades. These are the Dirt People.
Not the most flattering of terms but I get it…..I is a Dirt People.
The GOP concluded, amazingly, that the reason Romney lost was he did not embrace amnesty. Trump, for all his defects, was smart enough to see that the future is not now and America is not yet the vibrant multi-culti paradise. This revolt of the Dirt People is based on the obvious fact that a growing majority of people are thinking it is time to put the brakes on the madcap dash to the vibrant future.
Cruz is a bastard, of that I have no doubt. But he’s our bastard. He fights the fights I want fought. Has he won many of these fights? No. Does that matter to me? No. He’s a single freshman Senator swimming against the tide of his party. How exactly was he supposed to win? What he has spent his time in the Senate doing is preparing the battlefield. He’s laid down markers forcing people to take sides and identifying the terms of the battle. Keep Reading….
Cam Newton started this. His superman act, his dancing, his arrogant persona, and his claim that he is the best QB evah, then he got humbled.
There are two ways you can go in defeat, show class and answer media questions with dignity or…….face the media with disdain then storm out without answering questions. If you can’t handle success with humility, then the chances of being humble in defeat are slim to none.
It’s a shame that a kid with this much talent was never taught the basics in life. Be thankful for what you have been given and be humble in victory or defeat. A mans character is judged by these things and when Cam’s character was tested he failed. Maybe he will learn from this, maybe he won’t, only time will tell.
