Twitter and the race for the Presidency

In Presidential Campaign on July 28, 2015 at 10:03 pm

Twitter and the race for the Presidency is an insight to how each candidate see’s themselves and more than just a glimmer as to how they think.

Scott Walker: Seems to like food the most.  He has eaten at Geno’s steaks & Pats King of Steaks, Ribs in Olivette,  Ice Cream was planned with the Romney’s, McDonalds with a pin, Blizzard Double Cheese burgers & a Beer at the Billy Goat in  Chicago.  He’s got a Coffee cup for sale which they promote endlessly which he suggests drinking coffee from at various stops.  He will need a new belt soon. He’s got a Book which he is hyping!  He’s excited to be in every state he visit, which is rather boring without a photo or info.  He wants everyone to follow his wife #TonetteWalker which the more it’s pushed the less likely anyone is to sign up.   In case you missed it, not only is he trying to run for the Presidency of the United States, but he is hawking a book which you can buy directly through his web Site.  So far his Twitter Score is a solid C-

Hillary Clinton claims to be a wife, mom (small caps were her idea), Grandma, Women + Kids Advocate, FLOTUS (a job she was really horrible at), Senator and Secretary of State (another Job she didn’t do very well), Hair Icon, (another Bad Job) Pantsuit Aficiono, and 2016 Presidential Candidate.  (Lets hope she stays only a Candidate). Her Site however makes it look like she cares.  The Tweeting Committee gets it, lots of positive tweets, showing her looking like she cares.  (Hard to do)  Overall all Twitter Score B+.

TRUMP aka the Donald.  Very fast Learner!  Hard for him to keep any subject under 140 characters, so lots of Twitter Bombs where multiple tweets end up in a string.  However, he has a lot to say.  Plenty of followers and people showing their support.  Maybe the BEST of all. He doesn’t have to stage the photo opp, he is a Photo Opp.  People who hate him re-tweet him so he’s more popular.  Those who already love him, are happy to spread his message.  What would the other Republican Candidates give for so much press?  (Hello Mike Huckaby, Rick Santorum or who ever else is running).   He seems to be getting better with his overstatements, but best off all he is expressing what many Americans wish to talk about.  He seems to have his finger on the pulse.  We are all angry, with both sides.  (Elect a Billionaire going in, Not one coming out) a great line.  #makeAmericaGreatAgain reminds us all what we have lost.  Lots of re-tweeting Reagan Quotes, smart really smart. So the #realDonaldTrump is a A++

Twitter and the race for the Presidency show the (Not Ready for Prime time Players like no Other)  Hello Marco Rubio:  Seems like the same old Mitt Romeny Republican staffers who don’t get it, all got jobs prompting Marco.   (Buy a Marco Polo) is cute but not Presidential Material.  Help Marco Lead the Fight, to stop Iran.  What will happen when his own party turns against him and Senater Majorty Leader McConnell tells him how to vote.  He’s just not ready and his twitter postings show that every day.  Maybe years from now, when his message is more than (my Father was a bartender who came from Cuba, so I could be your President).  Twitter Score C+.

Jeb Bush or as it’s says on the sign  JEB!  Lots of reasons why he’d like to be President.  Honestly his twitter, facebook, and entire social media campaign worked to well.  Learning alot about JEB! turns out to be a problem.  No Bush hater here, ready to hear ole  JEB! the message.  But so far everywhere you turn JEB! is turning on his brother and Fathers legacy.  I don’t want a president with Heart, I want one with Balls to defend this Country.  So twitter score of an A, but because of the message, a no vote from this house.

Ben Carson: Love his feed,  Calm, predictable, smart and seems very real.  Probably won’t get him elected President but maks followers like him even more.  Twitter Score A.

Carly Fiorina: Twitter suits her, she is smart, quick and probably a very nice person.  She seems to be the candidate most available for an interview. (unlike Clinton).  Don’t see a path to the Presidency, but I do see a future Cabinet Post for which ever candidate she helps get elected.  Twitter Score B+

John Kasich @JohnKasich.  So far he uses Twitter just like he speaks, softly and deliberately.  Unfortunately that isn’t the way to catch on.  Great Message inside the message.  He understands politics, People and voters.  Needs a new Social Media Crew, (maybe Clinton’s when she gets arrested for destroying E-mails) who can make him look Presidential rather than the friend next door.  Twitter Score B- Candidate Score A+

Rand Paul: Yes we all hate the Tax Code.  But campy Videos about how to destroy it are hard to make as you now know.  Ouch.  Good Senator, probably would make an excellent President and uses his Wife well in the feeds.   Unlike candidates from Wisconsin.  Hope he starts putting some info and broader messages into the feeds.  Twitter Score B- Candidate Score A

Rick Perry:  Here is an extremely successful Governor.  It’s almost as if he never read a Twitter Feeds, mostly his own. Boring, Dull and written to not offend.  Donald Trump has already proven that offending people is almost a Twitter bonus.  Perry should hire some kids to work on his feed.  Twitter Score C

Senator Ted Cruz @SenTedCruz : The Twitter Feed alone should tell anyone looking that this guy is a Senator first.  Bright, smart, conservative and would probably be the closest president to a Calvin Coolidge we will ever get.  Looks like ole Ted is running for Vice President on the Trump Ticket.  That’s okay because someone is going to have to explain to Donald Trump that he would be living in Government Housing.  Twitter Feeds are kind of over the heads of Voters, he gets mired in the points and not onto the #makeAmericaGreatAgain which is more about him as a person and Candidate than Twitter user.  Just remember Senator people are as tired of Senator, and Government Officials running their lives as they are of Harvard grads telling us what to do!  Twitter Score B

Twitter or for that matter all of social media works best when you can be honest.  This is why the Donald is doing so well here.  Not a Single Vote has been Cast, yet every pundit is scared.  Why?  Because the America Public doesn’t need Pundits with Twitter and Social Media.  We can decide for ourselves.

Twitter and the Race for the Presidency makes 2016 a new dawn, no matter who wins.



Will the Next William Borah Please stand up

In Executive order, Government Reforms, Obama, Terrorists on July 23, 2015 at 3:31 pm

Will the Next William Borah please stand up, known as the “Lion of Idaho” during his 33 years in the United States Senate. Elected as a Republican in 1907, Borah established himself as a prominent progressive with a fiercely independent spirit. This superb orator who had a knack for courting publicity was once named by Time magazine as the “most famed senator of the century.” Despite his leading role in the creation of two constitutional amendments–establishing the graduated income tax and the 17th amendment – Borah is best remembered for his impact on American foreign policy. In 1917, he was instrumental in the Senate’s rejection of American entry into the League of Nations.

The League of Nations was considered Woodrow Wilson’s singular achievement and the entire world watched as Wilson attempted to get the treaty through the US Senate.

Alice Roosevelt Longworth who was married to Nick Longworth the Speaker of the House started informal gatherings which became outright meetings of destruction of the Treaty.

The League of Nations treaty was considered a bad deal for America by the Senate giving the League a virtual vote over the soverity of the Untied States.  Wilson who was basically a socialist loved the idea of the world council voting on world affairs.  Today the United Nations fills this void, which was pushed into being by Eleanor Roosevelt who was in agreement with Wilson. Ironically Eleanor was a cousin of Alice Roosevelt Longworth who was the daughter of Theodore Roosevelt.

In January 1940, Borah suffered a brain hemorrhage and died. His funeral service was held in the U.S. Senate Chamber.  

It was Borah who stood in the Senate Chamber and lobbied his fellow Senators to veto the bad treaty.  Much like the Iran Deal that Secretary of State Kerry has put forward.  President Obama has threatened a Veto, but when does the Administration get to tell the Congress how things are going to be.

We need a Senator Borah to take the lead.  Are there any Senators who are Statesman left in the United States Senate?  We will soon find out.

Will the Next William Borah Please Stand up: if there is one!

How much US money for Greece?

In Dollar Crisis on July 9, 2015 at 6:24 pm

Why is Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew pressuring Europe about a deal for Greece? How much United States Taxpayer money has he promised to another European Socialist Country?  Last time the US bailed out the IMF we had to borrow the funds.

A Grexit will be hard for Greece, painful for the Greek People and the European taxpayers.  But why should be be expensive for the American Taxpayers?  We already have a elite class of non working people to pay for.

Jack Lew is in the Process of removing Alexander Hamilton from the Ten Dollar Bill and putting an unknown at this time women on the front.  Perhaps we could send these new notes.

Let the Euro take care of themselves and the American dollar be ruined by our own politicians we don’t need to join the fight for another Socialist country to get another bail out.

President Donald Trump

In Hillary Clinton, Presidential Campaign, Terrorists on July 1, 2015 at 6:17 pm

The twitter inquisition is a new phenomenon in the social media world and one that allows instant feed back from the public and candidates themselves.  While Candidates like Marco Rubio seem to be using twitter as a garage sale more than media presence twitter and for that matter all of social media have helped the Candidates.  Hilary Clinton seems to be hoping by changing her logo to the Rainbow flag will help voters forget that before she was promoting gay rights she was Against gay marriage.  So the last twitter feed wins. dt-101

Each Candidate has their own style of social media.  Carly Fiorina seems to enjoy using it as a promotional device to suggest how voters might find her.  Jeb! hopes that it makes him more likable but always feels like pleading or begging.  Jim Webb who I don’t think has announced, must be working on his presence but will become likeable as voters can discover him.   Ben Carson always seems surprised and genuinely happy that people are listening, and for a guy that has a lot to say he could say a lot more using social media about his message rather than on Voter Counts at events. Chris Christie obviously likes seeing himself and will use social media to promote more of Christie. As to the bottom of the rest of the pack they will figure it out.

Scott Walker’s campaign is like Herpes, once they find you, they never leave. Walker is dangerous to the Trump Campaign because he is so connected to the Republican Party Leadership.  All Candidates will face this issue but a Trump Campaign must scare them most of all.

Now that leads us to the King of self Promotion: Donald Trump.  Talk about the first time in the game with rookie mistakes.  He is best at getting his message out, but he also is taking the bait.  He is fighting in front of others utilizing social media while doing so. Fighting with Macy’s, NBC, Reporters, and Univision will not gain any voters.  But people are watching how he will defend himself and anyone who disagrees with him.  Andrew Jackson took on anyone who disagreed with him and shot a few along the way, and lets hope The Donald doesn’t do the same.   Lincoln had his followers simply print fake tickets to take over the Convention and Reagan had to scold a reporter to get his voice.


The Donald who wishes to become President Trump needs to tone down the hostility towards his enemies and people who are not fans.  (Not being a Fan does not make you an enemy and if elected President they would be the same people he has to govern).  So here are some suggestions for the Donald.

You announced you where a Rich man and defended the American dream.  George Washington was also rich and only took a single dollar per year.  Add that to your platform.  $1.00 per year salary!  Run like George Washington and except one dollar.

Polk ran to accomplish 4 things- you offered a Wall to secure the boarder, Make America Great again- Honor the military which I assume means taking care of those kids who served and restore our economy.  Keep it simple and offer to do it in 4 years.  If those things are not accomplished offer to only serve the ONE TERM. Don’t over promise. Be like Polk and Finish what you started in one term.

Learn to poke a little fun at yourself.  AKA Ronald Reagan could tell and take a joke.  Be A little Reagan-Esq.

Kill the enemy that is trying to kill us!

Honor the lessons of Reagan and keep the eleventh Commandment.    Don’t beat up your fellow Republicans.  Stand on your own ground- you have already proven this.

Don’t take the bait:  Lets some fights go nu-fought and ignore them.  Especially on Social Media.

Remind Americans every day how much you love this country and keep the message simple and clean.  Most don’t understand the economy like you do:  Doesn’t make them stupid, makes them the people you are running for President to help.

Don’t take any Money to Run.  No Lobbyist Money, no Political Money.  Use your own fortune to become President.  Then you can stay your own Man.

People don’t have to like you or hate you: they need to VOTE for you.  Every day tag a reminder why!  Donald Trump #securingfreedomforAmerica #TrumpforSoundMoney #TrumpUSAPRIDE

Reagan and Madison gave us hope: Show us the way President Trump. America needs leadership.

The National debates will be better simply because Donald Trump is there and unlike the field of Politicians will bring the questions back to what All Americans want to hear.  How will we Save the American Dream?  If the Donald can become President lets make him Promise to Fix the Inside of the White House and not build a Better Trump Tower over it.  Just kidding, He is a great candidate and will make a honest President.  How long has it been since we could find that.
