Will Says…Mr. Trump is ‘Beating a Dead Horse’ Again


Now, you folks that read my column may notice that I don’t get too much into the policy parts of politics – you know; the exact facts. Mostly ’cause it’s too easy for someone smarter than this cowboy to call me on a fact that I either overlooked or I got from a news source that just minutes ago, was discredited for putting the ‘ifs’, ‘ands’ and ‘buts’ in the wrong places. These days, the fine print is what will get you into deep trouble, I leave all the real facts to the pundits, the economists and the politicians… The boys that can afford the law suits, and pay enough money to make it look like it was the other guy’s fault.

Now, if you want to throw facts around about how to rope a steer or ride a bull, I’ll go head to head with you, but not the Washington bull. I will stick to the ridiculous part of politics, ’cause there’s plenty of that you can spout about without ever being wrong.


So, with what I said above, I feel obligated to give you all something substantially absurd to chew on today… And I found it.

“Trump again questions Obama’s birthplace.”

In the cowboy world we call this one “beating a dead horse,” only it’s beating a dead horse that has been dead and buried for quite some time. Like since our President started running for the office of President in 07. That’s when they ask for the important docs that prove you are who you say you are. As far as I can see; that’s when Mr. Obama’s birth certificate was produced.

To me, this is like the movie that James Stewart starred in with the rabbit, “Harvey.” The story is about a man that sees a seven foot rabbit; but no one else sees it.

Mr. Trump and all the other folks drinking the same TEA… Are seeing things that all the other Americans don’t see, and that is that their President is not from the USA. They think our President is hiding something, namely his real birth certificate.

The statement, Obama is hiding something is definitely funny, seeing that regardless of what party he is in, he’s a politician. I mean, isn’t every politician hiding something? If they weren’t they’d be a priest! Wait, scratch that.

I kinda feel stupid even hashing and rehashing this subject. When moments like this happen, it reminds me of my father; rest his soul. I would say, “That car is white”, and he would say, “No, it’s OFF white”. Point is, he just had it in his head he was always right, even if you showed him the proof. Some folks will go to their grave believing what they want to.

The thing that really gets me is, isn’t it a little too late for this conversation. It’s not like we bought a new Toyota, and we got it home and found out it was a Yugo. There is no cooling off period. He is the President and even if we did find out he was born outside the USA. There’s no “take backs” or ” do-overs”. Now, it MIGHT affect the 2012 elections…Wait a minute, I get it, 2012 elections …Trump is thinking of running. This is no more than just political dirty pool.

Mr. Trump, maybe in land deals you can use shady tricks to advance your business. However, we like our political figures to have a somewhat clean past. Donald Trump: married 3 times & divorced. Can’t find an American wife, (what’s wrong with woman from the US?) and talk about hiding something; …the hair. I have a feeling you might have more to uncover than you want us to uncover. Please run in 2012, it will make this extra silly season that much more fun to UN Cover. By the way, I think Michele Bachman might be a good VP.

Your friend, Will
