2020 and beyond is now less about Donald J. Trump, Sr. and Bernie Sanders than about the days of the building of the Brooklyn Bridge. Queens Protestant New York Presbyterian Trump and Jewish Sanders have competition.
John F. Kennedy is dead, let the Kennedys rest. This is more about Theodore Roosevelt and a Catholic American.
A rising from the ashes, to Americans, is supposed to not be of a partisan political convenient crisis used yet to rise more lawless & even unconstitutional.
The mark on these days that try our consciences in courts of public opinion such as elections are is a deja’ vu - a been there done that yet of generations before and a little time altered.
Brooklyn Jewish Bernie Sanders is not now the biggest threat to New Yorker Donald Trump POTUS.
The real historical character now in these modern times is one who grew up quite underneath the building of a great bridge - actually grew up a New Yorker poor Irish American and of family residence quite beneath the building of the Brooklyn Bridge.
Republicans & Democrats risk irrelevance now if try to make the great battle ahead between 2 New Yorkers - Trump vs Sanders - as at all about any Kennedys! These are the times again fit for questioning Theodore Roosevelt real history.
It may not seem natural to historically now compare Al Smith to Theodore Roosevelt more than and over Franklin D. Roosevelt but such is the nature of real unfolding drama - and how we Americans already have characters cast quite historically now to haunt any political narcissism of today’s needs.
Besides there is they have a common enemy in the Clintons due their reckless & unnecessary $2Trillion cut for $1Trillion in surpluses and in Hillary Clinton history of maladministration and campaign bullying Trump vs. Sanders is to be much of Al Smith bridge builder vs Teddy Roosevelt & a bully pulpit.
We can let the Kennedys rest - the Clintons & Obama politics have perverted a real understanding of Catholic American John F. Kennedy too much for such to be intelligently mashed about before election day in November. We have 2 “un-Clintons” now squaring off as if in old Greek amphitheater as if Al Smith’s story had to be compared and contrasted with Teddy Roosevelt’s.
The Clintons are not out of this - not yet! The aren’t offensive - well not in that way - there story is offensive, but they are now the ammunition Trump & Sander need in Trump vs. Sanders Republicans vs Democrats. Independently both sides owe a dissection of the mistakes of the 1990s and a thorough deconstruction of the Clintons cuts for $1Trillion in surplus in lieu of caring and as for peace dividends before their time. Ashes to ashes line items to line items the guilt of the Clintons is real, and, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is condemnable for party to such & worse still for having defended surpluses after 911 attacks even over helping President George W. Bush needs for policies for economic growth for recoveries. Speaker Pelosi, in defense of Clintons, did during the Bush years actively block any policies that would have suggested the Clintons were less than 100% perfect in their past administrating. It was not even half Bush’s fault.
Ahh but these deplorable Democrats played their tunes and keyed wrongly to Kennedy legacy sentiments while yet marching mislead souls to diabolical partisan politics unbecoming Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, and John Kennedy, for starters.
It seems Theodore Roosevelt grew up not just with a silver spoon by to New Yorkers & establishment life styles a maybe the 5th most highly polished silver spoon of the city. Al Smith grew up poor with a father running a trucking enterprise with horse drawn carts while living under the mysteries and wonder of the construction of a great bridge.
Trump & Sanders can’t honestly debate their sides of the philosophical without the historical of these days problems were much solved already over a century ago by a Catholic of Tammany Hall an Irish American who both was New York’s first Catholic Governor and American’s first Catholic nominee to be President.
Trump vs. Sanders is now about if Teddy Roosevelt as President got it right!
Trump vs. Sanders is now about the rise and success of Al Smith and how much he did get right - not just for his times!
Trump vs. Sanders Republicans vs Democrats is much those mashable on the question of vanity and narcissism of if the Theodore “Bull Moose” Roosevelt after 1910 was a different animal politically and one, after his long safari of so many kills in Sudan towards Egypt that most natural history museums across our country are still stocked for displays of his kills as artifacts. From what I read years ago they actually tied a big chair to the front of the locomotive for his grand safari and he sat there in front of it all with rifle(s) and ammunition at the ready.
Tammany Hall Catholic Al Smith must be historically seen as a feminist? His employment & support of issues cannot deny him such an honor?
Bernie Sanders vs Teddy Roosevelt is a tease to the real bridge building necessary forward vs Trump Republicans!
It seems Bernie is for the Teddy that developed after his safari and to then the hosted of the European parlors then of new fascism the pop thing. Bernie Sanders must be able to intelligently differentiate the “Teddy” of “two terms only” volunteered though only elected to one to whom then came back after the toast of the new fascists all across Europe who then around 1910 forward was more breaking from William H. Taft and towards a narcissism of wanting a 3rd term even if he then had to bring the “new fascism” to America.
Donald J. Trump, Sr. does now, even if it seems odd and hard to believe, as he more the real bridge builder and whom is and will continue to carry the mantle of Irish American Tammany Hall Catholic Al Smith.
We really due have the tales of truth forward of 2 un-Clintons squaring off against each other.
New York Saint Patrick’s Cathedral was still newish when Al Smith laid to rest - but by then he was managing the near still empty new Empire State Building and the Catholic Cathedral was no longer the tallest building in New York - (in America?).
Democrats must be able to intelligently now mash out the essences of Roosevelts - not Kennedys - due it seems Al Smith, Catholic, must come first - he much made Frank - Franklin D. - while it seems the story of “Teddy” born with sets of silver spoons and maybe the 5th most polished in New York City only worked due there were others like Al Smith dealing with the politics of keeping it real. Was it more who grew up rich or more who grew up under the construction of a great bridge (an enterprise yet made possible by established society?)?
To Republicans vs Democrats Bernie Sanders accomplishments are still of he of rise from Brooklyn but the lessons to be learned are already in our books? - the bridges over these times are already established?
