Did Trump Jump The Shark in South Carolina?


Trump Shark Jump?
Ace of Spades HQ: The Ego Has Landed

From supporting Planned Parenthood and to saying he is for tariffs on free trade, Donald Trump took some less than conservative positions last night.  But blaming George W. Bush for the World Trade Towers and the 9/11 attack?  I am not easily shocked by Donald Trump, but I was shocked by that argument.  I am not a fan of Jeb Bush.  I have considered Jeb! a disaster for the GOP from the beginning and a big part of the reason Donald Trump is on that stage in the first place... But, I am with Marco Rubio, I have thanked God on more than one occasion that George W. Bush was president when 9/11 occurred.

While I was depressed seeing that train wreck of a debate last night (and why would the GOP agree, for example, to a moderator who in the past suggested that Obama should destroy the Republicans), is this the beginning of the end for Trump?  How do you win the GOP nomination going left of Hillary Clinton on 9/11?  If it happens it means the GOP is completely dysfunctional and is already destroyed.

With the death of Antonin Scalia, the stakes are too high to mess around anymore.  Jonah Goldberg is predicting that resisting an Obama appointee for Scalia will fail, because the GOP leadership does not have the will to fight.  I hope Jonah is wrong about that, but we all recognize that is a real risk.  What is the point of even trying to win the general election if that is the attitude of our own side?  We need to narrow this race down to Cruz and Rubio and focus on winning the general election.

Politico: If this does not stop Trump, really what can?
Trooper York: Never go full retard...
Wombat: Michelle Malkin: So the RNC approved John Dickerson as debate moderator? Don Surber: Fire Reince
DaTechGuy: Ace is wrong, Trump did not damage himself

Rush Limbaugh: Trump not hurt by debate?  I do not know what to think anymore, other than maybe it is time a bunch of the candidates drop out and let Cruz and Rubio take on Trump.

  1. Not the first time Trump went 9/11 Truther on us. He thinks he gets mileage from Bush saying of W "He kept us safe (after 9/11)" and not saying "He kept us safe after 9/11".
    It's the same reason that when we talk about 9/11, we don't say, "9/11/2001 when the World Trade Center was attacked". Some things are just freaking obvious. Trump's tone deafness (and Trutherism) will probably not advance and most likely hurt his cause in South Carolina.

    1. Trump will still win SC, but I do not see him winning the nomination with this sort of behavior.

  2. I don't think he will be hurt at all. In fact it might help him in the general election.

    I thought Bush was inept not criminal. Trump just got pissed and went after the Bushes. He hates them the way the Arabs hate the Jews. So he went full retard. It will blow over.

    1. I knew Trump would shift left in the general, but it is too soon for this. He will win South Carolina, but it is a long road to the nomination and he might have just lost it.

  3. The Bush's don't have many fans. Just lots of parasites who feed off their carcass. That will end soon. Then they are going to be very lonely.

    1. I would choose Trump over Jeb any day. I want to see Jeb go down asap. But Trump is unstable and we saw a bit of that last night.

  4. Trump jumped the shark long before he ran for President.

  5. Bush was a terrible President, but gets respect from conservatives because the thought of Gore being President on 9/11 is terrifying.
