Is Trump ahead by a point? Or is it Carson?

Or have we gone obsessively compulsively nuts handicapping a race that still has months to go before we reach the finish line. 

Or are we so desperate to be rid of Obama that we’re counting the days…when actually we’re looking at more than a YEAR!

That’s plenty of time to do mucho damage because guess what…Obama is still president.

I know this sounds strange because tune to the cable networks and it’s as if tomorrow is another day. No. Tomorrow will be the same.

Iran is in. Israel is out. Our enemies laugh. Our friends weep. Obamacare is in ruins. Our borders are wide open to people we don’t know.
Obama will still be president.

They give you the latest polls on the hour as if nothing else is happening and even the mainstream networks now lead with who’s on top.

Nothing else going on, like people being stabbed for being Jewish and still another “Death to America” gathering over there in Tehran? Guess not.

Because it’s the same thing over and over again and even Fox News, the best there is, is getting monotonous and boring. One hour is the same as another.

Nothing has changed and nothing will change for quite some time.

Iran is in. Israel is out. Our enemies laugh. Our friends weep. Obamacare is in ruins. Our borders are wide open to people we don’t know.

Racial animosity is worse than it’s ever been in modern times. Groups like “Black Lives Matter” feel justified calling for the murder of our law enforcement officers.

Jewish kids on campus are being harassed and beaten by Arab imports who feel empowered and entitled to “express” themselves.

The same (SJP) bullies heckle, jeer and disrupt pro-Israel scholars who have been invited to provide clarity and reason – but given no chance. See this.

Orthodox Jews are being stabbed, cursed and beaten in Crown Heights Brooklyn.

This should be enough to prove that while Republican candidates take the stage and grab the headlines – Obama is still president.

He can still do whatever the hell he wants and if that is not enough, Hillary is waiting to finish us off.

On the airwaves, from one hour to the next we’re talking Republicans, but meanwhile it’s the Democrats who run the White House and our world.

The owner of a huge Atlantic City casino, Revel, is ready to use thousands of empty rooms to house Syrian deserters called migrants.

What does this mean?

This means that Obama is still president.

He’s bringing them in.

Trump says he wants to keep them out and he may well be true to his word but come on, aren’t we getting ahead of ourselves?

I think he’s the real deal. No morning glory. 

Either way, I have never seen a horse race get handicapped for the Kentucky Derby even before the horses have been foaled.

The other candidates, all have different slogans, different plans, different dreams, good, wonderful, but Obama is still president.

It’s way too early and this makes no sense, going on about who’s ahead by a point when even the primaries are still miles away before they vote.

Desperate Jeb’s new campaign slogan is that he can fix things but meantime Obama is fixing things, fixing us good. That’s the only sure bet.

The rest of it is guessing or maybe the rest of it is ratings.  

The debates keep providing lively entertainment but neither Obama nor Hillary has been touched. 

The Republicans (our only hope) must be careful lest they turn themselves into a travelling circus. We need any one of them to prevail.

As for the news channels – where’s the news?
