Dick Morris says hold on for the ride!

January 19, 2018

With his petulant tweetstorms and seemingly capricious changes of mind, President Trump makes his political foes suspect that he’s crazy. Even his political allies are kept perpetually off-balance by a leader who can seem not just mercurial but perplexingly incapable of maintaining a “presidential” approach to the most important job in the world.

But according to Dick Morris, this wild roller coaster ride is a good thing.

He makes a good case, even if those early-morning tweets detract from what Morris calls a “sterling record of accomplishment”: a booming economy, less illegal immigration, the Islamic State largely overwhelmed, and regulations slashed to a degree few thought possible. Even the North Koreans may be rethinking their self-annihilating strategy of aggression. One concern not expressed by Morris, though: the very personality traits that have helped Trump achieve success are getting in the way of his receiving credit.

Morris maintains that Trump’s unpredictability is key to his victories. Kim Jong-Un knew he could count on Obama’s wimpy appeasement strategy but doesn’t know what to expect from Trump. Neither do most in the media or even many in the Republican Party. The same strategy that kept him ahead of the game when he was a New York real estate mogul is, according to Morris, working for him now.

Well, if Morris is right, that would certainly explain the successes Trump has enjoyed when so many are pulling out all the stops to bring him down. As for me, I admit I’d at least like to see fewer of the more cringeworthy, out-there tweets. Perhaps then Trump could more effectively keep the focus on the successes he’s had so far and guarantee even more in the coming year.

    IF THE DEMS DON'T LIKE TRUMP'S TWEETS THAT IS A GOOD ENOUGH REASON FOR HIM TO KEEP THEM COMING. THEY WOULDN'T COMPLAIN SO MUCH ABOUT THEM IF HE WASNT' GETTING TO THEM. HIS TWEETS ARE NOT NEARLY AS OBNOXIOUS AS WHAT COMES OUT OF SCHUMER'S MOUTH EVERYTIME HE OPENS IT.

    Your insight and observations are always appreciated. Keep going. BTW - in trying to read comments, "next" brings me back to the beginning.

    I have to disagree about the tweets. He should keep it up..whem the leftists lose their minds over style (not substance), it exposes them for the intellectual lightweights they are.

    What I saw in Trump some time ago - he is a 'pugilist'. He is like a professional boxer. You have to know when to throw a punch. It may not be pretty, but it keeps his opponents off balance, and keeps the initiative on his side.
