It was just like Christmas morning on cable TV news networks today. All the news anchors and reporters were like over-anxious children waiting to see what a “newsworthy” gift Donald Trump had in store for them.
MSNBC even played along on “Now with Alex Wagner” by including a countdown clock to inform their viewers how many hours it was before The Donald made his endorsement for president.
Every cable TV news networks led with the Big Tease. But like most news stories that are over-promoted, it was anti-climatic. The Donald endorsed The Mitt.
There they were, side by side at a press conference. A media circus moment worthy of these two clowns separated at birth.
The Greatest Show on Worth.
Bain and Bad Mane.
The Buffoon Tycoon endorsing Mr. “Corporations are people.” In the center ring, “You’re Fired!” and “I like being able to fire people” telling America what was wrong with America. They were completely oblivious to the fact that they were both perfect examples of just what is wrong with America.
If Trump was called upon to make the endorsement in order to gloss over the “poor” comment Romney made Wednesday, it’s not going to sell.
Mitt’s now infamous comment was “I’m not concerned about the very poor.” He said he was taken out of context (but found it necessary to clarify the statement later.)
What he meant to say was probably something like, “I’m not concerned about the very poor. They don’t vote and they smell funny.”
This from the same man who wants to be president of some of the people and who makes $57K a day by not working, tells a group of jobless people that he can identify with them because he too is unemployed, has offshore accounts in the Cayman Islands and money in Swiss bank accounts.
This is the same man whose slogan is “Believe in America” —- but protect yourself from paying higher taxes by putting money anywhere but America.
To his credit, at least his slogan isn’t “Invest in America.”
It’s no coincidence that the Buffoon Tycoon’s endorsement was made on Groundhog Day. His shadow overshadowed the guy he was endorsing.
Trump came out of his lavish lair like some PunxsaDonny Phil. He could’ve predicted six more weeks of Romney winning primaries until he clinches the GOP nod for president. Or six more weeks of spending millions of dollars on negative ads destroying any candidate who stands in his path.
Millionaires and billionaires and Super PACS, oh my.
Naturally, The Donald trumps every other news story of the day, no matter the politics of the cable TV news networks.
Taking a back seat to Bad Hair Day’s day was the fact that President Obama gave a moving speech at the National Prayer Breakfast. A lot of his focus was about the poor, and he used Scripture to get his message across. It was all about “caring for the least of these” and to “speak for those who can’t speak for themselves.”
Obama was talking faith while Mitt Romney coddled with the money-changers.
Right wing-nuts will say it was President Jesus Hater trying to pull the wool over the eyes of us lost lambs.
Newt Gingrich will say Obama is a double-agent spy in his own “war on Christianity.”
The more cerebral conservatives might remind people to remember their Shakespeare, especially a line from “The Merchant of Venice”: “The devil can cite scripture for his purpose.”
Would it have made a difference had Obama done a “Tebow” on one knee at the end of his speech?
Don’t bet on it.
Obama does have a poker face, and Romney may find that to his disadvantage if he ever does debate him.
His Trump card will be of no use to him then.
