If his immoral words and deeds are not enough, now also his financial house of cards is coming tumbling down, now Obama’s economic reforms are running out of steam and his erratic policies, like his trade wars, are backfiring. He winged it. It shows.
For those Republicans who’ve had it with the liar in chief, it matters little if Trump is going to be impeach or if an alternative good Republican candidate for the 2020 elections will be found.
But whom, is not such an easy question. “Good” here means, someone who could beat the best Democratic candidate. I think that the current VP doesn’t stand a chance. Any Democratic contender will run circles around him. (It would be hilarious to see Gay Mayor Pete debate the VP with his cure-the-gays-away track record, but we’ve had enough reality show regarding the White House, so that should not qualify.)
A serious, respectful Republican candidate? The only one I know would be Nikki Haley. The only person who worked for Trump and was not fired like dozens of others but quietly, without upheaval, quit herself?
Wouldn’t it be ironic if conservatives brought the first female president to the White House? Or refreshing if she had to face a female Democratic contender?
It would be the best ‘revenge’ on Trump’s xenophobia, racism, and sexism. Something like Moses coming to defeat Pharaoh but emerging from his own household.
The former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations might turn out to be as conservative as the current Pope. (He was elected with the expectation to be conservative but he wasn’t.)
But in any case, chances for a voice of reason and moderation, historically and statistically are just more likely to come from a woman. And it would be high time for reason and moderation.
At this rate, the RC Pope would be female before the US president.
Haley would be the best president for Israel ever, of course.
