Alfred Doblin sees similarities between a certain two loud-mouthed substance-less bullies. Here’s a bit from the opening of the article; follow the link for the rest.
. . . I clearly recall a conversation we had when Christie was making his first run for governor of New Jersey in 2009. I expressed my frustration over the lack of details from candidate Christie; he was not giving specifics about what he would do if elected. That was intentional, I was told. While Jon Corzine, the not-popular Democratic incumbent, had to defend his record, all Christie had to offer was a promise of change.
The campaign message was: “Trust me. Details to come.”
Christie bested Corzine.
Rock beat paper.
Now Donald Trump is soaring in the polls, while Christie, a politician with a record to defend, is in a free fall. Trump is running Christie’s 2009 campaign. No details. Just loud assurances that if elected, he will fix things.
Rock still beats paper.
