Trump’s Presidential Re-Run for 2020

Don  your track shoes to run alongside Trump ….

Thinking back on my first run at jogging as a young mother, son Jeff, nine at the time, ran alongside me on my trial loop around the block. I was proudly huffing and puffing and in my mind jogging at great speeds. Suddenly, my son flipped around so that he was jogging backwards, smiling. He outpaced me, running backwards. I gave it my best, but my son ran circles around me. That flashback is how I see Trump, smiling and outdistancing candidates while running backwards.

Whereas our 44th President was more professorial, dipped in gold as he took office, awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in anticipation of greatness, our 45th President launched into orbit from an elevator, into the great unknown, with us onboard.

Talk about jet lag

Google tracks my phone and I can view the data tracking where I have been. It’s not that impressive. I smile to imagine the Google Map of Prez Trump’s journey of  his four trips around the sun on Air Force 1, Marine 1, and the countless Presidential Motorcades.

2020, Entering the Unknown

We find ourselves in the middle of another campaign season. Feeling civic, I made my first political contribution ever  in response to one of those mailers. It was Melania’s birthday contribution request. Signed a whopping  $15 check for birthday wishes and to thank our amazing First Lady.

Your candidate needs your support to win the race.

Our Best Days Still Lie Ahead – Joe Biden

Together we are rebuilding America – Trump

Cross the Finish Line

I think back on what Trump said as he took office in 2016. He will lead us but it is we who must dream the dreams and work for what we want. Every President needs the trust and spirit of the American people.

Well, it’s running season for the 2020 election. Lace up and cheer on your candidate. Run to the finish line. Vote to realize your ideals and a better America.

Pres. George HW Bush from the Greatest Generation

George Herbert Walker Bush shakes hands with crowd at Springfield, Missouri, Airport
It was a pleasure shaking your hand, Mr. President

Kindness passed from Bush 41 to Me in Happenstance

In 1992, I shook the hand of President Herbert Walker Bush when he landed at the airport in Springfield, Missouri, on a campaign stop.

I was one of a crowd who wanted to connect with our President that day, and I was three rows back. Mindful of no one in the crowd but me, I was pushing my arm as close to the President as possible when a complete stranger in front, grabbed me by the wrist and pulled my hand forward, into the hand of President George Walker Bush.

I have no idea who this stranger was, but he gave his opportunity to shake the President’s hand to me.

I never got to say “Thank-You!” to that stranger.

In that way, a stranger passed the kind ways of President Bush to me, in happenstance.
