North Carolina Was A Win

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTE,BER 13, 2019

         THERE WAS A SPECIAL ELECTION IN NORTH CAROLINA LAST TUESDAY. BOTH REPUBLICANS WERE SUPPOSED TO LOSE ACCORDING TO POLLS AND THE MAJOR MEDIA WERE WAITING – EAGER – TO CLAIM THE LOSSES WOULD DEMONSTRATE THE WEAKNESS OF PRESIDENT TRUMP AND SIGNAL HIS DEFEAT IN NEXT YEAR’S ELECTION.

         EXCEPT THEY BOTH WON. ONE OF THEM BY A DOUBLE DIGIT MARGIN OVER HIS DEMOCRAT OPPONENT AND THE OTHER BY A SINGLE DIGIT MARGIN OVER HIS DEMOCRAT OPPONENT. THE PRESIDENT CAMPAIGN FOR BOTH MEN.

         THIS IS HOW THE WASHINGTON POST REPORTED IT: “DEMOCRATS DIDN’T WIN IN NORTH CAROLINA’S SPECIAL ELECTION, BUT HERE’S WHY THEY’RE STILL CELEBRATING.”

         DO YOU SEE HOW THIS WORKS? THE MEDIA ARE SO ANXIOUS TO SEE PRESIDENT TRUMP DEFEATED THEY WILL SAY AND DO ANYTHING – EVEN INVENT THINGS – IN PURSUIT OF THAT GOAL. IT WAS A LITMUS TEST, A REFERENDUM, A BAROMETER. SO NOW WHAT IS IT? NOTHING. NOW THEY SAY THESE MEN DIDN’T WIN BY A BIG ENOUGH MARGIN. THEY HAVE NO SHAME. I’M CAL THOMAS.
