Wikipedia defines a "trump" as "a playing card which is elevated above its normal rank in trick-taking games." The "trump card" is a players decisive advantage. So is Donald "The Deal Man" Trump just living up to his name?
The Trump Card
In a recent interview with Meridith Vieira on The Today Show, Trump refers to himself as the "Deal Man" and openly states that the best thing Obama accomplished was "getting elected." You have to admit--he was good at that!. Trump also stated, "This country is going to hell" and openly admits that "it's all about money". When it comes to foreign affairs, he says that we should be putting ourselves first and raised a valid question--WHY should we build schools and roads in other countries where they just get blown up? Shouldn't we put that money into our own schools? What about America?
Asshole or Ace in the Hole?
Though I have never been a Trump fan, I do believe as a country we have tried the diplomatic presidential approach enough that we should have learned something by now. In fact, I'm not even seeing "diplomacy" in our current president. I think it's high time for a real "ace in the hole."
When companies are struggling, what do they do? They get rid of their top management who is totally inept and bring in a deal man. How is this country any differnet than a big business? It's not. It is BIG Business and needs to be run as such. Big businesses employ many people, generate revenue, work in the best interest of their customers or are held accountable in the form of dwinding sales. Finanical responsibilty is pinacle.
Texas Hold 'Em
Texas Hold "Em is a poker game of stategy. The object is to win "the pot" no matter how much is in it. Trump IS NOT an attorney. He is a business man. I personally find this refreshing and encouracing to have our country run as a business. In Hold 'Em, you can check, bet, raise or fold at the end of each deal. The object is to control the amount of money in "the pot" based on "your hand" while predicting what your opponent may be holding. Of course it can always end in a "show down." What we don't want is for it to end up in a SHUT DOWN.
A Spade's a Spade
Obama swept the polls because people said he was "charismaic," a great "orator" but MOSTLY they wanted "CHANGE." The "change" has turned into a more of a "buddy can you spare a dime" sort of change as we are all raiding our "change" jars just to get a few groceries for our familes and gas for our vehicles. How did a black man who is supposed to understand the underdog further drive this country to its knees?
DONALD IS HARD TO TRUMP. And really, with that hair, I guess, he has no worries with his poker face.
