If it’s political leadership you want I have just the man for you

As soon as I saw the title – The West is in strife — and looking for leaders – I went looking for what I knew would be there:

Since Trump’s elevation to the most powerful position in the world, his supporters are finding it difficult to point out his achievements.

This is written like a typical leftist nonce – Graham Richardson in this case – as he tiptoes past the graveyard of dead socialist ideas. And dead though they be, they live on in the putrid and decaying minds of those who believe that though they have ruined everything they touch, next time will be better. As for PDT, two items from just today:

Rand Paul: “Biggest Free Market Reform of Healthcare in a Generation”

U.S. to withdraw from Jewish-history-denying Islamic-supremacist-promoting UNESCO

As it happens, just yesterday pretty well everyone who had supported Trump publicly during the election met up together for dinner [that is, those of us who live here in Australia]. It wasn’t a dinner about Trump, just a get together but the President did get mentioned and all of us were still ecstatic that he won. But you do have to wonder what Graham is looking for if he can write this:

It may seem hard to believe but I am horrified at the thought of ­Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn becoming Britain’s prime minister.

His brand of magic pudding economics will send the country broke, yet his appeal to younger voters is growing rather than ­diminishing. His vows to end austerity and start spending have a ready-made audience as many Brits consider they have been squeezed too often and for too long. Brexit will be difficult to negotiate and the power vacuum at the top in Britain is a real worry.

You know, if that really is the kind of thing on his mind, then PDT ought to be just the political leader he should want.

    I dunno, he might be able to convince the Corleones to offer their services.
    I believe something of the kind is on the minds of the Libs in Victoria.

  2. That’s a decent way to celebrate Simchat Torah.

    Your last sentence sums it up very well indeed!

    What a lightweight muppet.

    Graham Richardson may be a nonce, but he’s no leftist.

    The extent of Trump’s idiocy is exceded only by that of his supporters.
    Kates, of course, chooses to ignore his PDT’s myriad and obvious failings and, like The Black Knight, just doubles down on the bluster and bravado.
    Just as Tony Abbott has poisoned any chance forthe good policies he advocates (and he did advocate some), so PDT silk make the good policies be has stumbled upon unsalable longer term. If the world survives that long.

    There must be something of an intellectual hobble that goes with being christened ‘Malcolm”, eh Malcolm?

    Politicians shouldn’t have “supporters”. They should have sceptical ,cynical ,watchful voters ready to hold them to account .Therefore I don’t “support” Trump in any way whatsoever. But here’s the thing , IF he is able to get through his tax plan nothing else will matter. The US economy will fly as capital flows back in and the regeneration of decades old industry decay occurs. Germany illustrates how industry can flourish in high cost markets. The US has been asleep for 30 years. Like Aus , it’s become shallow service based consumption economy. Only DT can change that. I don’t care if he’s a creepy narcissistic bore who has bragged about grabbing pussy. In the scheme of things that crap is a sideshow .

    And anyway, if the last few days have taught us anything, it’s that powerful lefty liberals are far and away the most dangerous sexual creeps on the market .

    Corbyn appeals to the youngsters, promising all, delivering nothing but chaos. Remember another person called Rudd who did exactly the same. The younger generation couldn’t get enough of him so he was elected and look what has happened to this country since.

  11. struth

    Corbyn only appeals to youngsters brainwashed to do so .
    Without the help of Marxists in education, he’d be just the silly old dole bludger down the street.

    And Gillard, and Whitlam, and Shorten!

  13. Kneel

    The extent of Trump’s Shorten’s idiocy is exceded only by that of his supporters.

    There – fixed it for you.

    You’re welcome.

    “I don’t care if he’s a creepy narcissistic bore who has bragged about grabbing pussy.”

    For a moment there, I thought you were referring to Bill Clinton. Then I realised you said “grabbing” not “molesting”.

    “In the scheme of things that crap is a sideshow”
    Of course – Howard was a sniveling, pretentious, whining windbag but I voted for him anyway because he did the job that needed to be done.

    Ricoh and Trump are well suited to each other. Both are creeps who can’t be trusted.
