Republican Party Concern About Trump Simmers

As the old saying goes, "Where there's smoke, there's fire."  And there definitely is smoke, at least in the form of smoke signals, coming from Republican Party circles.

Is Trump campaign "wigging out?"
For the first time, power seems to be shifting away from Trump and his antique road show to Republican stalwarts such as Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney.  While long-time Republican politicians such as these have long been warning about Trump, their warnings are taking on new importance as an organized effort by delegates to stop Trump at the Convention continues to congeal.

Clearly the situation is quite fluid.  Those who have said otherwise are obviously not on the inside of the Party and in no position to speak for it.  Those who are on the inside, while perhaps not yet gaining the upper hand, are at least finding their hands.

What we are seeing is old time politics, not the media circus which we have had ever since Trump descended those stairs in Trump Tower a year ago.  It is a welcome change.  As I have said before, if Trump is sufficiently pressed, his weakness will be ever more apparent.  And as Lincoln said, "Let the thing be pressed."
