In response to Jim Kempton’s column, “Playing the Trump Card” in last week’s paper, Kempton is a blind-eyed left-winger that Dana Point Times gives a lopsided, fully loaded soapbox opportunity to spew every cliché and personal attack he can contrive, to make up for his lack of intellectual arguments. George W. Bush was a draft dodger because he signed on with the National Guard and only someone stupid could fly a supersonic jet? Have I got that right? As far as the Clintons, I suppose it depends on what the definition of “is” is; and it’s perfectly fine that Hillary was running her own private government and self-policing an illegal, State Department server which she wiped clean with a do rag? It’s no big deal as long as you believe in totalitarianism, corrupt politicians and presidents that lie to the public (Obama Care, Benghazi, Ferguson) and to a Grand Jury (Monica).
Career politicians like McCain and Kerry have been hiding behind their prison camp and war history like Obama and his colorful cadre hide behind an affirmative action, invisible race shield. Don’t you dare call out incompetent politicians and inept policies for fear of being called a hero hater or a racist! Liberals are falling over themselves to give failure a chance.
We have a government in a financial tailspin orchestrated by a money-sucking, overregulated operation headed by Obama. We have anarchy in the streets passively endorsed by democrat leaders that selectively enforce laws, and riots fueled by race baiting presidential advisers like Al Sharpton. What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now! (Black lies matter.)
Kempton is a “master” at character assassination except when it comes to liberals—like when Joe Biden said Obama was the perfect presidential candidate being “black and (because) he is clean and speaks well” or when he said, “You can’t stop at a 7-Eleven without running into someone with an Indian accent.” I guess it’s OK to be a liberal bigot?
It is easy for a simpleminded zealot to call out Trump as a bad man and a sexist but we have a president that has never held a private sector job. Obama couldn’t manage a lemonade stand (if he could get through the permitting process) without a half a dozen czars (also known as similar college pinheads) but America has him running the entire United States economy and making decisions about who gets the bomb. Dah.
I would like a capitalist running capitalism and a president who understands peace through strength.
Maybe it’s time for Kempton to move to Cuba.
