nick b: Magical thinking is very seductive. If you can convince a plurality of Americans that you can change America merely by making some other people change--but not your voters--you can go a long way.

Mr. Ramos obtained US Citizenship in 2008 and still hold his Mexican Citizenship. He is a self-avowed "incendiarist". The press have not reminded us that he called the President, to his face, the "deporter-in-chief," nor that his daughter works for the HRC campaign. Most folks out in fly-over land believe Mr. Trump handled the incident very professionally and give Trump Kudos, as "a a" has pointed out, s for bringing Ramos back at the end of the presser to make his points and engage in debate.

I get an xml parsing error, not well formed.

Perhaps the problem is that the "ISW SITREP Iraq 14-17 August 2015" article where the description element starts off with a quote character and then ISIS launched a large complex attack. That initial quote character is never ended with an ending quote and that may confuse the RSS parsers. The article itself has an ending quote much later but it is too far away from the start and it gets chopped.

Other than that, I don't see what could be causing the problem.

Matthew,

I heartily agree, but to that I also believe that Trump adds the aura of total certainty. His confidence is absolute and in uncertain and rapidly changing times, this too is seductive.

I am most impressed with his media skills/savvy. Perhaps it comes from decades of dealing with the NYC press and his time on TV. He has a far greater grasp of the power of twitter and exactly what media outlets are most willing to cover/discuss than his opponents do. He has managed to pull all eyes upon himself, to his own benefit and the detriment of the other candidates.

I can only imagine the kind of money being paid to Bush, Walker and Rubio's media consultants, and they can't even get their guys on the air. It's an amazing thing to witness.

"as an organization Univision ..."

who owns Univision???

AEL

I think we solved this one. try it and let me know. pl

Fred

jerseycityjoan,

Univision is owned by a long time Hilary supporter. Cutting the sponsorship the beauty pageant Trump owns was a financial attack on him for not towing the intellectual line being pushed by the left.

Tyler

A a,

Keep on wishing really hard. I'm sure it'll be true. Yelling rhetoric at Trump isn't the hard hitting questioning you're desperately wishing it was.

( Ramos status? Deported.)

AEL

Fixed!

Thanks kindly, sir.

AEL

Yes, indeed.

Thanks kindly sir.

Some have analogized Donald Trump to Huey Long! I disagree. Thoughts?

It has been fun reading Scott Adams' blog. It is like having a magician explaining how the tricks are done. After all these years of political and media groups establishing conditioned responses to phrases and topics it is entertaining to watch someone come in and steal all their toys. Cue the image of stamping of widdle feet with bawling.

This is late, but my RSS feed is back too. Thing is SST is about the only site that I actually will load directly when the feed fails.

Haim Saban, to be specific. He's like the Democratic Party's answer to Sheldon Adelson. Saban's with Hillary, of course.
