Trump's Speech!

For those of us who despise Donald J. Trump, we think his acceptance speech was terrific.  He did nothing to widen his appeal and reinforced the many negatives that swirl around him.

He spent well over an hour huffing and puffing in a bombastic harangue that served up red meat hot button issues for the converted and was nothing more than a tired litany of talking points for others:

Immigration – Law and Order – Bad Hillary – Trade – More Law and Order – More Bad Hillary – America First – We are Losing – More Immigration – Kill the Bad Guys – More Bad Hillary – More Law and Order, etc., etc., ad nauseum.

Fortunately, his egomaniacal self couldn’t bring itself to express even a modicum of humility.  Go Donald!

Fortunately, his slogans weren’t backed up with substantive solutions.  Go Donald!

Fortunately, his fear mongering and dystopian view of today’s America weren’t leavened with a positive vision for the future.  Go Donald!

Fortunately, he did nothing to improve his likeability numbers  Go Donald!

A missed opportunity.  We can only hope there will be many more in the coming months.  Go Donald
