An observation made during last night's GOP debate: Bush v. Trump

The incompetence of our Ruling Class was on full display last night. Jeb Bush, at the insistence of the GOPe and the Ruling/Donor class, and despite getting thoroughly spanked each time he did the same, again went in full attack mode at The Donald. And again, each time The Donald spanked him into embarrassment.

The Donald is one man. Moreover, The Donald is bluntly honest: he plainly telegraphs his intentions. Just about every candidate on the debate stage has figured out how to handle The Donald: when you disagree with him, do it respectfully - and The Donald will return the courtesy.

Yet, despite numerous embarrassing examples, our Ruling Class has not yet figured this out!

My point is this: Bush v. Trump is a telling illustration of why our country is in the dire condition it is - in death-spiraling economy, fading liberty, and failing foreign policy. Our Ruling Class can not figure out a strategy on how to deal with a problem as obvious as The Donald. Why the hell should we expect them do do any better with actual problems such as Cultural Marxism, the debt, or ISIS?

    The ruling class has been given a pass for so long they don't know how to handle any challenge.

    Of course if I was Papa, I may be able to write a poem about it. But I will stick to my day job. :)

    Those who attack the Donald must realize that they must expect a reaction force greater than in magnitude and opposite in direction of the force of their attacks on the Donald.
