HELP!.... Oxygen!..... I canít breathe!

If media attention is the oxygen of the Presidential candidates, then Donald Trumpís Republican opponents must be hoping that their staffs remembered to bring along a few tanks of the stuff they can use to survive until the air becomes breathable again on the campaign trail. Donald Trump is not only sucking up all of the media attention in the room, he is sucking up all of the political oxygen in the country. The other Republican candidates are starving for media attention and the Republican establishment must be deeply troubled.

3. Everyone is entiled to their opinion, but...

...the most common phrase used in the media to describe the Donald's affect on his fellow Republican candidates is "he sucks all of the oxygen out of the room". The title is simply an attempt to play off of that phrase. Sorry if you were somehow offended.

4. I diagree

The Republican party elite wish that Trump had never entered the race and that he would disappear tomorrow. The whole point of the article can be summed up in these sentences, "This is the time in the Presidential election cycle when the ďrespectableĒ Republican candidates should be introducing themselves to the American public, publishing their policy statements, and trying to differentiate themselves from their opponents. With 16 major Republican candidates vying for the ultimate prize, this would be difficult on the best of circumstances. However, with Trump dominating the cable news channels the other Republican candidates are struggling to even get minimum media coverage."

Trump is stealing everyone thunder and you can bet they don't like it. The only thing worst for a Presidential candidate than being criticized by the national media is being totally ignored.
