Apropos the shooting in Germany, Europe sure does seem to be having a lot of gun violence lately, doesn’t it?
Apropos everyone from Obama to the #NeverTrumpers complaining how gloomy Trump’s speech was, what do they expect? He’s running as the opposition to the controlling political party. Is he supposed to say, “Things are great, but vote for me, not the candidate appaering on behalf of the same great political party currently in power?” Of course not. What Trump is saying — and what resonates with people — is “Things are lousy in ways you know are deeply, deeply wrong, and I can fix them.”
Hillary’s problem as a candidate is that she too knows that everything is lousy — from our soggy economy to our scary national security situation to the seas that never receded despite Obama’s promises — but she’s too tied to the political party currently in power, so she can’t distinguish herself by promising a big new (and different) fix. All that she’s got Left is a vaguely senile appearing Bill Clinton talking about “the awful legacy of the last eight years.” Well, that’s subtle.
