Greetings everyone, from the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. I’m here to address the International Society for the Advancement of Spinal Surgery this morning. What a great country — a fella born and raised in the inner city gets to address some 800 of the most incredible medical minds in the world. Well, Tuesday evening, yep, you know what I was paying attention to, so let’s have that discussion.
Once again, keep your emotions to yourself! This is an objective assessment…not a cheerleading section for anyone.
First of all, the contest between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders reminds me of the old vampire movies — not the “Twilight” genre where vampires are young, sexy, and sparkle in the daylight. Hillary Clinton just cannot seem to find the stake to drive into the heart of Sanders’ campaign. What is this, six of the last seven primary/caucus contests won by Senator Sanders? This is a reflection that the current Democrat Party is truly full bore embracing a socialist philosophy of governance. And they’re off to Wyoming where, well, he’ll probably win there too. Now, you still have the big challenge of New York coming — Sanders can claim being born there. Hillary Clinton can claim being a carpet-bagging Senator from the Empire State.
You just have to ask yourself, when will this fiasco on the Democrat side come to a head? I mean, at some point in time will the pledged “Super Delegates” — a Democrat phenomenon — scratch their heads and shift to Sanders? And there is the dark specter hanging over Hillary Clinton’s head of an FBI investigation. Say what you wish, but if this were a GOP presidential frontrunner candidate with an ongoing FBI investigation plaguing his endeavor, you know it would be front page news every day and night.
Now, onto the real main event: the GOP presidential primary contest. And let me be very clear: stop bellyaching about the 1,237 number. Every one of the candidates went into this contest knowing it took 1,237 delegates to win the GOP nomination for president.
Let me explain this in a simple southern manner and metaphor. In football, you don’t get a touchdown just because you made it to the 2-yard line. It doesn’t matter that you got close, you have to get the ball into the end zone. If you don’t, you’re not just “given” anything. Heck, you may have to kick a field goal and risk missing or having it blocked. So let’s all end this ranting about “fairness.” Either make the number or make your case at the GOP convention in Cleveland, Ohio.
With that being said, the tough question at this point has to be can Trump or Cruz make the 1,237 standard? At this point, Trump still leads with 740 delegates and Cruz has closed the mark with 514 delegates. There are some pretty big contests coming up in New York, Pennsylvania, and California. You have to mathematically look at the possibility of not having someone who can achieve that goal. We know Senator Marco Rubio has decided to hold onto his earned delegates. The issue will be precision and organization. Precision relates to the messaging and the reduction of unforced errors — which is what severely hurt the Trump campaign in Wisconsin. Going into the Badger State and …..
