Whatever you are, be a good one. Abraham Lincoln
At some point throughout this presidential campaign commentary has ended with "Fiorina for president," "Carson for president," or "Trump for president."
From the beginning, preference being for an "outsider."
Mrs. Fiorina self-destructed.
Dr. Carson did not self-destruct.
Mr. Trump not only survives but thrives.
At this writing, pure disgust.
Because of the desperate and despicable accusations Mr. Trump's enemies - GOP and Democrat opponents, their campaigns and supporters, and media - are now leveling at the bold, brash, and plain-speaking frontrunner.
The trump card of all trump cards - racist - now in play to slay Mr. Trump.
It's nonsense, absolutely.
For if truth, why not played 3, 6, 9, 12 months ago?
If Mr. Trump's enemies running for the high office invested the creativity, time, money, and passion into selling themselves as best for the presidency then Mr. Trump would not be in play.
But they did not and they cannot.
There's a fundamental and disturbing problem when the opposition's campaigns morph into campaigns focused on another.
Mr. Trump remains on offense. And is playing defense, too. A championship team, whatever the sport, must have balance to be good, to win.
Mr. Trump recently cited Abraham Lincoln as his pick for best president ever. Considering President Lincoln's opening thought, clearly Mr. Trump took the 16th president's advice to heart.
He's pretty good at whatever he does. And wins a lot.
Better get used to it...
Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States.
