Have always thought Trump would bail on debates. Now thinking he may simply bail altogether, w/draw from the race. He sounds weak and looks bored.

"If Trump came to power, there is a decent chance that the American experiment would be over. This is not a hyperbolic prediction; it is not a hysterical prediction; it is simply a candid reading of what history tells us happens in countries with leaders like Trump. Countries don’t really recover from being taken over by unstable authoritarian nationalists of any political bent, left or right—not by Peróns or Castros or Putins or Francos or Lenins or fill in the blanks. The nation may survive, but the wound to hope and order will never fully heal. Ask Argentinians or Chileans or Venezuelans or Russians or Italians—or Germans. The national psyche never gets over learning that its institutions are that fragile and their ability to resist a dictator that weak. If he can rout the Republican Party in a week by having effectively secured the nomination, ask yourself what Trump could do with the American government if he had a mandate. Before those famous schoolroom lines, Pope made another observation, which was that even as you recognize that the world is a mixed-up place, you still can’t fool yourself about the difference between the acceptable and the unacceptable: “Fools! who from hence into the notion fall / That vice or virtue there is none at all,” he wrote. “Is there no black or white? / Ask your own heart, and nothing is so plain; / ’Tis to mistake them, costs the time and pain.” The pain of not seeing that black is black soon enough will be ours, and the time to recognize this is now."

The True Trump. Establishment Republicans are pleading desperately with Mr. Trump to “get on message” and “stop going down rabbit trails.” Translated, that means stop sounding ignorant, bigoted and hateful and start looking presidential. Surely they have forgotten something. The reason Mr. Trump became so popular in the first place was precise because he sounded ignorant, hateful and bigoted. And he knows that, the showman that he is. He also knows that if he risks getting “back on message” he might very well lose his base, the true believers who relish his hatefulness, bigotry, and ignorance because they are hateful, ignorant and bigoted.

Never admits it's your fault, never apologize, and never say never, is what a loser must learn the hard way. The worst part is that it was the media who brought his star power. NBC, to be precise. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.

A sore loser always looks for a quick scapegoat, instead of reflecting on mistakes. This camp pain has gotten really trashy. How low can it go?
