In defense of Trump’s Tweeting

Looks like I’m no longer the Lone Ranger on this.

(U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard) Grenell said, “It makes my job so much easier. We as diplomats have to be at the forefront of trying to solve problems. You don’t want to have a war. You want to avoid war, which means diplomats need to be able to talk. If you want to really solve problems, you better have diplomats who are really tough, diplomats who know how to push and know how to cajole. Because the alternative is to transfer the file over to the DOD. So, I like having a president who’s willing to be very tough. Look, we can also talk about whether or not the style of the president works. I think $400 billion in new defense promises for NATO members is one surefire way to point to the fact that the president’s style has worked.”

Well, yeah. For some, style trumps results; for some, the other way ’round. And then there are those of us who realize that, quite often, the style is what gets results. It’s certainly so in Trump’s case; his brashness, his bluntness, his cantankerousness are in no way obstacles or handicaps. They’re the very legs on which the race is run…and won.

  1. The only people that seem to really have a problem with Trump’s tweets are those getting skewered by them.

    Oh, and the ‘Don’t fight because fighting and standing up for yourself is wrong’ crowd amongst the conservatives.  Because not fighting and not standing up for yourself has worked so well for those same conservatives.

  2. Actually, it HAS worked fairly well for them, Beans. It’s those of us they falsely claim to represent that it hasn’t worked for. Nice thing is, now we all know for sure that their goals were never the same as ours, or even compatible with them.
