I wish it were not so because I want Republicans to win in 2024 with a president who can hold office for eight straight years. That is what it is going to take to reverse the economic and woke morass that Obama, Biden and the Democrats have created.
Some Republicans respond, “No problem! Trump can serve four more years, and then someone else (usually DeSantis) can serve eight years.” This ignores recent history. There has been only one 12-year run (Reagan-H.W. Bush) by any political party since Truman. Today, voters simply tire of one-party rule beyond eight years at the presidential level, and they’ve proved this time and again.
Then there’s the issue of what another Trump candidacy would look like. The enemy is the MSM. We know the MSM would attack any Republican candidate, but they’ll go after Trump with a vengeance, just as soon as they help him secure the nomination. Then the MSM will attempt to scare all independent voters.
And there lies the rub. Neither major political party can win without majority support of independent voters, which is now the largest voting bloc and still growing. Trump runs the risk of losing independents and the 2024 election, which I believe would be a shoo-in for DeSantis or Pompeo.
“But what if Trump wins?” That’s easy to predict. We’ll have a four-year circus with Trump waking at 3 a.m. to argue with some no-name reporter or Congresscritter. We’ll have a president who already professes problems with Republicans in Congress. We’ll have dysfunction, especially if the Republicans lose either house in 2026. And, then, we’ll have a lame duck for two years.
Why would anyone want to encourage this nonsense? Just so Trump can have another four years? I readily recognize that Trump was treated despicably by the MSM. That won’t change. I recognize that his own executive branch turned on him. That won’t change. I recognize that the 2020 election was fraught with the potential for fraud, which has never been proved only because it has never been properly investigated. That could repeat itself. I recognize that Trump was undone by China’s release of COVID on the world and advice from Dr. Fauci and others. That won’t happen again.
Regardless, even if Trump could win in 2024, another four-year Trump circus could cause independents to change horses once again in 2028. Independents are fickle creatures. You have to get them while the getting is good, and the getting couldn’t be better right now. We’ll have an opportunity to start fresh and go for a candidate who can serve eight years. That can’t be Trump.
