2024: Neither Trump nor Biden, Please

November 25th, 2022

By Bob Gaydos
It may be a knives-and-daggers battle among Republicans for the nomination, but there’s no way they can offer Trump as their candidate again without giving up their last chance of rescuing their party from the pit of shame into which he has dragged it.

In my opinion, no Republican candidate for office even deserved consideration for my vote if he or she had failed to publicly voice any kind of criticism of the Trump disaster despite having six years and countless opportunities to do so.

French is the universal language of ballet. A pirouette is a pirouette in every country. Easy to understand. Alas, not so with Donald Trump. Yes is no, yours is mine and top secret applies only to his golf handicap,
