Paris + GOP Primary Electorate = ??
We are going to learn a lot about the GOP electorate in the coming weeks.
Once the events of the last couple of days settles into the American consciousness, we will have a very interesting opportunity to see the degree to which the GOP electorate is truly willing to elect an amateur to the White House. Or, more accurately, whether roughly a half of said electorate really is willing to continue to consider Donald Trump and Ben Carson serious contenders to be the most important executive officer in the world.
Has the party truly evolved to the point that they truly believe a no-nothing is the appropriate person to serve as POTUS? (And when it comes to foreign policy, Ben Carson has demonstrated a profound lack of knowledge and understanding). Or, has the party decided that unbridled belligerence and vague declarations of will and leadership is all it takes to deal with complex foreign policy issues, a la Trump?
Another question: will Jeb Bush finally have formulated a means to address his brother’s mistakes in the region?
Stay tuned to find out!
