When talks, but any kind, don’t go well the talking points are that it is going positively. And that’s all you heard today from the Republicans that met with Donald Trump. It was positive. Over and over again it was positive. You are saying positive way too much.
Paul Ryan actually brought charts into the meeting to try to explain to Trump how things work. I don’t think he got through. Trump did make a point that he is won more votes than anyone before and that his poll numbers are really high. That is very hard to disagree with but I think Paul Ryan is playing the long game. Paul Ryan wants to be president. The main reason he did not want to be speaker of the house and was The Reluctant Bride for so long is that rarely do speakers of the house become president. And he really is power hungry. His misstep in 2012 being the vice presidential candidate to Mitt Romney’s failure is forgivable in terms of the electorate. But jumping on board with Donald Trump and Donald Trump bringing everything down around him is not forgivable.
There’s a Chinese curse that says may you live in interesting times. I guess we are all cursed.
