Comments on: A campaign that makes the political turmoil of 1968 look good http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2016/03/08/a-campaign-that-makes-the-political-turmoil-of-1968-look-good/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Rhyse http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2016/03/08/a-campaign-that-makes-the-political-turmoil-of-1968-look-good/#comment-1129115 Tue, 15 Mar 2016 17:54:11 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=46851#comment-1129115 The author makes some errors regarding the Democrats of 1968. Robert Kennedy had absolutely no influence on the convention in late August as he was assasinated on 05 June immediately after winning the California primary. To suggest that Eugene McCarthy would have been acceptable to the Democratic establishment shows the author does not remember the extreme division caused by the war, divisions deeper than the current GOP . Four years later, many of these establishment Dems quietly voted for Nixon in his landslide defeat of the anti-war McGovern.

This isn’t even close to debatable.

I commented, you posted my comments, then you deleted them. I guess your cleaners didn’t like any debates against the author’s point of view.

1) The convention won’t be “brokered” by cigar smoking hoods in a back room. If any candidate doesn’t have the required majority, the convention will be contested, and, subsequent votes required of the delegates. The process is quite simple and transparent, not the soap-opera you want (sorry)
2) The contest isn’t being compared to 1968 by the G.O.P. voters at all. It is being compared to the 1980 recovery from Jimmy Carter’s disastrous presidency by Ronald Reagan’s election for freedom and prosperity. The author’s posturing is trying to appeal to a half generation “off” reality.
3)His premise that Cruz and Rubio have no distinctions in their short terms as Senators is laughable. Cruz, with his poison pill, stopped the Gang of 8 amnesty bill. Rubio, with his poison pill, stopped Obamacare’s bailouts to unsustainable healthcare offers. When Obama is gone, either one of these good Senators, representatives of the people, will bring Spring and Prosperity back to the U.S.A., the home of the brave and the free.
