WASHINGTON DC – Democratic strategist James Carville said on Wednesday that GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is enjoying unprecedented momentum on the 2016 campaign trail.

“He is dominating this conversation unlike anything I’ve ever seen, I guarantee you.”

    Donald J. Trump is like Secretariat in the 1973 Belmont Stakes. Pulling away and extending his lead like the other horses were cheap claimers.

        As far as that race went, Secretariat shaved 2 3/5 seconds off previous track record.

        He said Secretariat wasn’t that good as a sire of racehorses which was true, HOWEVER, Secretariat is renowned as being one of racing’s superior Broodmare sires, which means his daughters outproduced their father, foaling many grade 1 stakes winners. Not sure how this would correspond to Trump though. Secretariat’s record in the Belmont has never been broken, and statistically, even American Pharoah would not beat him today.

          That broodmare link is called the X factor among breeders. The trick is to get an X factor baby from his line. If the sire is an X factor sire as well, you might have your horse. Unless you get that hugely over-sized heart of Secretariat’s, though, I just don’t think his record will ever be beaten. My $.02 FWIW. (I had a line to buy a Secretariat granddaughter, but the guy backed out at the time. I wanted to see if somebody like me who has followed racing’s bloodlines for years could breed the X factor horse.)

        I heard him say that….but I think he misspoke and meant to say that Secretariat didn’t sire thoroughbreds that came close to him. At least, I think that’s what he might have meant. If he didn’t, he’s truly uneducated about Big Red. The necropsy on Secretariat showed why he absolutely left the other horses in the dust.

        — from Wiki

        “A necropsy revealed his heart was significantly larger than that of an ordinary horse.[37] An extremely large heart is a trait that occasionally occurs in Thoroughbreds, linked to a genetic condition passed down via the dam line, known as the “x-factor”.[37][39][40][41] The x-factor can be traced to the historic racehorse Eclipse, which was necropsied after his death in 1789. Because Eclipse’s heart appeared to be much larger than other horses, it was weighed, and found to be 14 pounds (6.4 kg), almost twice the normal weight. Eclipse is believed to have passed the trait on via his daughters, and pedigree research verified that Secretariat traces in his dam line to a daughter of Eclipse.[37] In the 20th century, the heart of Phar Lap was weighed and also documented to be 6.35 kilograms (14.0 lb),[42] or essentially the same size as that of Eclipse.
        At the time of Secretariat’s death, the veterinarian who performed the necropsy, Dr. Thomas Swerczek, head pathologist at the University of Kentucky, did not weigh Secretariat’s heart, but stated, “We just stood there in stunned silence. We couldn’t believe it. The heart was perfect. There were no problems with it. It was just this huge engine.”[38] Later, Swerczek also performed a necropsy on Sham, who died in 1993. Swerczek did weigh Sham’s heart, and it was 18 pounds (8.2 kg). Based on Sham’s measurement, and having necropsied both horses, he estimated Secretariat’s heart probably weighed 22 pounds (10.0 kg),[37] or about two-and-three-quarters times as large as that of the average horse.”

          Another thing Trump should do – although he should save it for the general election – is that he should announce as soon as he’s secured the nomination that he wants to end any special tax breaks for oil companies. They should get any/all deductions that any industry gets, but no more. Supposedly these only amount to about $4 billion / year. It makes no sense for conservatives to have to continually defend indefensible tax credits, especially when they are inconsequential. Get ahead of the Democrat candidate on this, and then ask why he/she didn’t stake out the same position already. Make the Democrat defend “special tax favors for their big oil campaign contributors”.

          We can’t let this election be a one-issue decision. Social Security Disability costs about twice each year of what illegal immigrants are costing us. Many people are receiving this benefit for life because they are alcoholics, drug addicts, obese, illiterate, or just plain faking. Less than half of the people receiving benefits should be entitled to them. Most people cause their own disability or are such horrible parents they cause stupidity in their own children (less than 20% of intellectual disabilities are organic/genetic, most is familial, or caused by the family).

          What are we going to do about this? We took these people on for LIFE. Should we pay people who ate, drank, or drugged themselves into such a state they won’t/can’t contribute?

            We will start with deporting illegals first, thank you very much. And yes, unless illegal immigration is the single issue, period. Nothing else will matter if it is not stopped immediately, because the entire nation will become one giant mess like California if it isn’t, but I think really more just like communist Brazil. Do you want to go there?

              We should never vote based on just one issue. That is so unbelievably short-sighted to me. You know who is worse than illegal immigrants? The militants we raised here. The BLM crowd is WAY more dangerous and costs us WAY more than the illegals. How much do non-working thugs cost our country? A good half of Hispanics work, probably much more than that. Education and health expenses for illegal Hispanics do cost us, along with imprisoning and holding illegals instead of deporting immediately, BUT how much do THUGS cost us?

              If you do the math, you will see you have much more to be concerned about. We are killing ourselves from within and using Hispanics as the number 1 scapegoat.

              Living in Texas, I see this problem with different eyes. Yes, there are bad Hispanics, but not as many as you would think. There are more bad people of different colors that cause a huge strain on the system and endanger citizens.

              Crime isn’t owned by just Hispanics, and I’m saying that from close to the border. As far as the drug dealing cartels, who is buying their product? What money are they using to purchase the product? Hispanics fill a need we have, that’s why they come here. If we remove the need (get rid of system-robbing drug addicts and lazy people who won’t work, and uneducated people who aren’t worth hiring) we will remove the illegals.

            That’s a great issue for Trump to raise, since obviously no one else would have the stones to talk about cutting/policing SSDI. The liberals’ headlines would write themselves, which is why “big heart Jeb” wouldn’t touch it. Trump could handle it, though, because he’s attuned to popular opinion. Most people have figured out that many SSDI recipients are flat-out fakers.

            I’ve also suggested Trump attack medical providers issuing fake bills to consumers when they let insurers settle the same bill for 30 cents on the dollar. There are a raft of good, anti-establishment issues for Trump to run with. I suspect he’ll do so in the fullness of time.

        Bob, I don’t understand what you find troubling in that Bloomberg article. The last GOP nominee – Thurston Howell The Third – had his “47%” comment hung around his neck. He wasn’t wrong, but it was a self-inflicted wound. The Democrat Party routinely runs rich guys and they don’t get the same scrutiny because they claim to be for the little guy. Republican rich guys are often perceived as just wanting low tax rates for themselves. Trump subjecting hedge fund managers to ordinary income tax rates is a smart idea. Just like with special tax credits to oil companies, “carried interest” capital gains treatment is inconsequential in the grand scheme of things and stupid for Republicans to defend. Romney should have been able to win the 2012 election in his sleep, but he didn’t know how. Jeb Bush sticks his foot in his mouth on a daily basis (Iraq War a “great deal”). There’s no way Jeb could win if he defends special tax credits to “big oil” or defends capital gains treatment for carried interest. Trump’s call to cut corporate tax rates is a no-brainer. Even Obama pretended to want to do that.

      I hope people will read your post and start to understand. I think some people equate Hispanic to illegal and it isn’t true in all cases. I just looked up the ration or native to immigrant Hispanics in America, about 35% are immigrants. MOST Hispanics are US citizens.

      Where our illegals originated:
      http://immigration.procon.org/view.resource.php?resourceID=000845

      This fact bothered me: The US population is currently 13% immigrants. Do we need these people to be here working? How many in the US are unemployed or underemployed?

      I agree with Donald, send them ALL back to their country of origin and only import them when we actually have a need for them. America is full.

        • I think that Carville is a mostly-non-ideological political operative. I read the book he and his wife, the Republican operative, wrote, and it was a total handbook on how to run a campaign. He was totally focused at all times. He was thinking 24/7 about what was happening, what could happen, and what to do about it when it did. Compared to him, his wife was a total wimp – more concerned about feelings, and tactics rather than strategy. Very, very educational. I actually used his strategic attitude in my own highly-successful issue campaigns.

As Chait puts it: “Politics does not work like business. You can get rich being loved by a quarter of the country and hated by the rest, but you can’t get elected president that way.””

    Trump is dominating. He’s showing us to close, how to never stop attacking. This is how it’s done.

      Please don’t anyone shoot the messenger! This site has Hillary in the name, and would still love her if she hadn’t decided to be Obama the 3rd term, but for awhile now they’ve been supporting Trump – and this article talks about why Trump needs to keep fighting Fox, and has an interesting idea for Trump.

      Here in simple terms, so that even stupid losers can understand, is why, exactly why, Donald Trump must continue his attacks on Megyn Kelly and Fox News: The January 6, 2016 GOP debate from Iowa will be hosted by Fox News and feature Megyn Kelly, Bret Baier, and Chris Wallace. The March 2016 debate will also feature the same Fox News miscreants.

      Yeah, the same team of Trump trashers will host the Iowa debate as Iowa is about to caucus (and the March debate too). Donald Trump has to prep the battlefield for January 6, 2016 and March 2016. That is why Trump must continue to attack Megyn Kelly and Fox News. At the end of this article we’ll post in detail exactly how Donald Trump can trump Fox News and win the war.

    This poll is YUGE. Amazing, really. Not to mention that Ben Carson’s – with all due respect – are soft, transferable votes…. guess to whom? Likely to Donald The Man.

    (Stella explained Rick Perry has an eye condition so no more jokes about the glasses.)

    Will Trump go further in outing the GOPe/CoC election strategy/conspiracy? Will he actually have to go as far as drawing a map of the deception? Or will the veiled arrows he has shot at Wall Street be enough to back them down?

    Yesterday at lunch, I was sitting at a table with 7 co-workers and the conversation soon turned to Donald Trump and I was left speechless. Not one single person had a nice word to say about him, rather, they said he is an idiot, a jerk, a disgrace, a fool and about twenty other names. One guy (32 yrs old) said “You’re not gonna vote for him, are you?” and when I said “I cannot wait to vote for him” everyone started laughing at me and a woman (51 yrs old) jumped in a said “OMG If he wins, I’m moving to Canada”, another woman (28 yrs old) said ” Trump? Yuck, I cannot wait to vote for Bernie Sanders”. I seriously could not believe what was happening. They all just kinda got up and walked away – they weren’t even done eating, but cleared their trays at the trash can and went outside for their smoke. I found myself sitting there alone, asking ” What the H3LL just happened?”. I realize I live in Minnesota, but doesn’t anybody here (beside myself and my husband) support Donald Trump? This has me really concerned.

      He is fighting an uphill battle. I seriously doubt those people read political blogs of any kind or follow inside politics. To them, Trump is a reality tv mogu, a braggart who is either acting a part as did Steven Colbert or a bragging, gauche billionaire who has a huge ego and takes himself much too seriously.

      Remember too that these people voted for Obama and so don’t see anything wrong with the country as is, right? They will never vote GOP, much less Trump.

        It’s hard to find anybody willing to admit that they voted for Obama, yet they are so vocal with their negative opinions about Trump. I thought Minnesota was more purple than blue, but that may have changed when Tim Pawlenty left office. I hope we’re not doomed!

          I’m here, too. Most people aren’t political junkies. They’re just starting to pay attention. You were probably among 7 people who have never voted for a Republican for president. 45% of Minnesotans voted for Romney in 2012 and he’s a robot who’d never even been programmed to use contractions when he speaks.

      I don’t think Minnesota feels many of the same crises of other states right now. The adult Minnesota that I’ve seen is still mostly Northern European extraction with some hard working immigrants, and some hard working liberals. The school kids, hmmmm, maybe not so much Western and hard working. Their excessive government still works reasonably well. They are not over run with illegals, but they are getting a noticeable dose of Somali refugees. The muslim terrorists are still small blip. MN nice, zzzzzz; many of them probably don’t feel any existential crisis, yet.

      I’ve known a few Carls and Ollies.

      Minnesota says it all. There is a reason the state bird is the loon. They have yet to come to grips with Carter not getting a second term.

      There is the reality. Not one solidly blue state has a chance of not going Democrat … unless maybe if Bernie is the nominee (won’t happen). Trump (or anyone else) has to keep all the red states plus win FL, OH, VA & either CO or NV. All the rest are lost causes & is the reason the country is in such sad shape. At this point, I really don’t see anything but another Democrat cakewalk as VA has become a lost cause & NC may be soon to follow. OH & FL could go red if the stars align. If Trump goes third party it will be an electoral avalanche that will bury the GOP (GOPe too). The country will then become a one party nation as far as Presidential elections. Sad, but it’s the reality of the sorry situation.

    You know what Barbi?

    Those people were very rude IMO, and their behavior exemplifies the liberal mindset.

    They say they’re all about inclusion, and letting people “do their own thing,” but their idea of inclusion means you have to agree with them. Liberals are without a doubt the most closed minded people.

    Honest Abbey—I’m with you and I’m in Minnesota! Sadly though, this is a crazy state with so many, many liberals, it’s hard to find anyone in my friends or family who are for Trump or even following what’s going on. Sigh.

    I do not understand why everyone is so shocked that Trump is doing so well. What is so hard to understand that the hard working American people are sick of getting lied to, hard earned money being stolen to pay for the illegals flowing across our border, a jacka$$ in the WH who despises us and our Country and insults, mocks and terrorizes us every chance he gets. The whole establishment in Washington lying to us, both Dems and Rep, and our own Party deceiving and calling us names. We have spent 6 1/2 years calling them, signing petitions and trying to get some decent candidates elected to office and the Rhinos fought us every step of the way. Our so called party has punished our Representatives if they did not go along with the Party vs what their constituents wanted. They have given Barry everything he wanted while we the people are out here suffering with health care that is breaking us, supporting illegals and an ever growing society on the dole along with Whites getting beaten, killed and threatened by blacks and thug illegal alien gang members. We have had no peace for years. Our society is broken and WE ARE FED UP.

    If Trump is smart, the next religious question about “what do you ask forgiveness for?” should be answered this way.

    “For you people in the media who spend a great deal of time championing the separation of Church and State and undermining the power of faith in our nation, I’m surprised this is even a question that remotely interests you- if you are being honest. Further, what you are asking is not a sincere question about my faith with God, but a gotcha question where the follow up is the question ‘What did you do wrong to ask forgiveness?’ What is so tiring about all of this is it is the same thing over and over every election cycle aimed at Republicans. It only highlights your lack of imagination and sincerity. So to answer your question- it is none of your business.”
