Animal’s Daily Comeback News

Well, he’s made it official now.  Not that this should come as a surprise to anyone.  Excerpt:

Trump took the stage at 9:00 Eastern, with his wife Melania in attendance, to the strains of Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA.” After thanking the audience, he told everyone watching that they were the heart and soul of a great movement in the greatest country in the world, adding that such a movement may never come again. “America’s comeback starts right now,” he said.

“I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States,” said Trump, to cheers from the audience. “This won’t be my campaign. This will be our campaign together…. We’re going to bring people together. We’re going to unify people.”

He noted that the country had been doing great and thriving like never before, and that there had never been a time like his presidency. The country had even turned the page on globalist policies. He added that all the Biden administration needed to do was sit back and watch as the U.S. enjoyed low taxes, a secure border, decreased drug trafficking, and energy independence that was verging on dominance.

I’m not sure what to think of this just yet.  We’re just beginning to see the results of the Red Trickle election of 2022, and as Kurt Schlichter has so aptly put it, the GOP has a ways to go to figure out what happened and how to take advantage of today’s election environment to keep it from happening again.  I happen to think the good Colonel is right on that score; as I’ve said repeatedly, never has an American political party been so adept at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, as we just saw last week.

Personally I’m on Team DeSantis.  If he decides to run, I’ll back him.  If he wins the nomination, I’ll vote for him.  If Donald Trump wins the nomination, I’ll vote for him.  I’m more concerned with keeping the levers of power away from the Democrats than I am in handling them to any particular Republicans; it has come to that.

But I gotta say, I’m suffering from a little election fatigue right now, and looked at this article and thought, “holy crap, can’t we wait a couple of months before diving back into this again?”

For the time being, I’m withholding any judgement as to the wisdom (or lack thereof) of another Trump candidacy.  I’ll see what is happening six months from now – maybe.
