Trump, apart from being crass and unfiltered, doesn't have the character required to be president. Additionally, he doesn't know what he's talking about and will be taken for a ride, the same way Bush was taken for a ride by Cheney. And what happened after 8 years of Bush? We got 8 years of Obama. And the Hillary we would've gotten 8 years ago would've been 100 times better, for the health of the country, than the Hillary we're getting today. I'm also hedging my bet on Trump losing because we're due for a recession soon and I would prefer not to have a Republican like Trump in office when it happens. If Cruz, Rubio, or really, any other Republican got nominated save for Trump, you'd be seeing a lot more focus on the issues, a fired up Republican base and Hillary and the media would be on the defensive, especially with Cruz. He has been preparing for the presidency from the day he was born, and none of these gaffes that Trump has would've been an issue with Cruz. He wouldn't even wear a cheese hat because he was worried it would sink his presidential chances like it did Dukkakis. Maybe Cruz has the wrong politics but to survive the MSM minefield, you need a person of strong character to make it through the gauntlet. Trump simply is not that person and a lot of people predicted this would happen months before Trump was nominated. Because we nominated Trump, we own him and his baggage and that puts us on the defensive. Even Podesta in leaked emails admitted that Hillary would struggle vs any other nominee save for Trump, and they were especially afraid of Rand Paul.
