Obviously the establishment GOP doesn’t realize “you go to war with the army you have”, or you surrendure. Over these last 20 or more years that I have been a student of our politics I have heard each POTUS election cycle people in the republican party, and its vocal pundits, not supporting GOP candidates, of any stripe, and making the foolish assertion to let democrat ‘so-and-so’ candidate win and it’ll show the American people how bad they are … and then they’ll vote republican next time. Well, how’s that working out for us, huh?
(American Thinker) – I like and respect George Will, and over the years I’ve been one of his fans. With the rise of Donald Trump, Will has decided to resign from the GOP, along with Mitt Romney and the other folks we might call “decorative conservatives” — the people who look good on the outside, but who have none of the fire in the belly that marked Teddy Roosevelt or Lincoln — not to mention the Founders, who were pretty robust and argumentative.
I believe Mr. Will has a genuine distaste for what may become Trump Conservatism. Trump represents a kind of happy warrior style of American politician, similar to Harry Truman and Rough Rider Teddy Roosevelt. It’s obviously too low-class for Will, Romney and Jeb Bush, who are all too delicate for the political blood sport that the Left has imposed on our politics. Nothing is too low for the Left. Literally nothing.
The national GOP has been in decline for years, running decrepit candidates like Bob Dole, John McCain, and Mitt Romney — who actually did flinch in the last debate with Obama, as Trump points out. Candidates like Dole and McCain were picked for their seniority, which is what made them weak and doddering candidates.
On the other side, the hard Left is back in charge of the Democrats, and they are killers. Their purpose is to destroy their opponents. In response, the GOP has run certain losers.
But then we see the killer thugs of the Washington Post and New York Times hiring a decorative conservative like George Will for “balance.” Balance, my foot. George Will is protective coloration for the WaPo’s inner mafia. The WaPo doesn’t play by any rules except its own. You may not see the glint of the daggers they all carry into the fight, but come election time, every honest conservative gets the shaft.
This is going to be a nasty, vicious election, and winners have to give as good as they get. I’m sorry. Reality.
But Mr. Will and his fellow pundits can’t see the obvious.
The Clinton-Obama years have turned DC politics into piracy, but for the first time in years there is a convincing alternative. Nobody knows whether Trump will justify those glowing embers of hope, or whether he will turn out to be a big disappointed. Nobody knows. But Trump looks like the real thing.
Well, Will, Romney and Paul Ryan can’t stand it. Trump drives them nuts, and you can see it on their faces. Their hollowness has been exposed, which is already a win as far as I’m concerned. The convenient back-scratching game between the GOP-e and Marxist-e has been exposed, and no sane American will ever believe them again. They are the enemy.
We need a good purge, and I’m not choosy about the label on the box.
Let the exodus begin.
