"Give him enough rope . . .

. . . and he'll hang himself."

I'm referring to a guy I've nicknamed "The Dumpling."

Being proud of oneself for insulting and imputing someone else's reputation and intregity seems to be a way of life for The D-man. He feels utterly entitled to express his opinions whenever and wherever he wants without regard to truth or context.

Taking credit for the work of others is also in his personal arsenal. He uses people like paper towels. Conscience and empathy don't seem to exist in his mind. If something is not to his liking or advantage, he has the means and chutzpa to attempt to alter whatever it is to the way he feels it should be.

A recent example of his gaucheness resulted from his distaste over a tent the White House used for a large formal event. It was tastefully decorated, lit and heated, and was budgetarily fitting. However, this uninvited guest decided it was completely unseemly. He tried to offer to construct a $100 million ball room to be connected to the White House for future events. At HIS expense, of course.

Is this a case of royal fever. That seems a kinder way of describing his self-centered-self-righteousness. He is toying with the idea of being King President of the United States. If it wasn't such a dreadfully stupid idea, it might be fun to watch him dangle in the winds of Washington.

What he seems to conveniently forget is that the FedGov has three, distinct branches: legislative, judicial, and executive. No one person or branch rules. This man would be frustrated out of his mind if he ever had to deal with Congress, Constitutional laws, lobbyists and international diplomacy.

The FedGov is a collection of agencies trying to protect and enhance life for every American from every imaginable angle. Any U.S. President has a huge juggling act that few are suited for. Negotiating business deals is not the same as negotiating the welfare of one group at the expense of another. Government by committee and negotiated consensus isn't at all the same as making an executive decision and sending it on down the line of command to be carried out.

I'd be interested to hear what makes some Americans think The Dumpling could or should be president. He loves to bluster and brag which seems to appeal to certain types, but he is in no way up to the task he mocks.

This whole act, in my humble opinion, is to regain the limelight he was out of for quite a while. Even he will get tired of seeing his face and quotes everywhere and return to his gold-leafed tower. The sooner the better.
