Minding Their Own

No, the EU referendum is none of Barack Obama's business.

Nor is it any of Rupert Murdoch's.

  1. Do you genuinely think there's any politician who really believes the internal affairs of other countries are none of his business?

    1. No President of the United States, no.

  2. Wrong. Donald Trump supports EU exit for Britain, as he told Piers Morgan on ITV, in line with his opposition to mass immigration at home.

    No wonder more people have voted in these Republican primaries than at any time in history. He's reinvigorated the national debate.

  3. Well, he's the first Presidential candidate to give the right advice.

    1. I expect that he is the only one to have been asked. And the others are all politically seasoned enough to know that the correct answer would be, "That's none of my business." Hence, no doubt, why no journalist has asked any of them the question.

    2. Of the five remaining candidates, Trump is the least likely to become President. On the Convention floor, even Kasich stands more chance of being the nominee, he also stands more chance than Cruz. Cruz and Trump are both going out in the first round. Even Palin is positioning in the hope of being drafted to appease their supporters, but it is not going to be about appeasing the supporters of Trump or Cruz.

    3. Indeed, it will not. Notice that the GOP now openly doesn't care whether the eventual nominee is even a registered Republican, just so long as he is neither Ted Cruz nor Donald Trump.

      If the supporters of either or both rioted, then that would only prove their general unfitness to be trusted with the running of anything.

      And even if they didn't, then the non-nomination of their respective candidates would still make its own point: "If you couldn't get a candidate like that nominated as a Republican, then you're sure as hell never going to get one nominated as a Democrat, so you are never going to get a candidate like that nominated at all."
