For the 840,000th time I must remind the hardcore Trump supporters that I am not, nor will ever be, a #NeverTrump drone. I would support Mr. Trump over Hillary Clinton, because I would support a four day-old tuna sandwich over Hillary Clinton.
There's an important opinion piece by former U.S. prosecutor and staunch Constitutionalist Andrew C. McCarthy that every GOP primary voter should read. You say you want the key graphs? Boom.
...Take John Boehner, former House speaker, GOP establishment pillar . . . and longtime Trump golf pal. When last seen, in his Capitol Hill swan song, Boehner was courting Democrats and slamming through a budget that forfeited all Republican leverage against Obama. But with Trump kicking off his California campaign this week, there was Boehner, thrilling the campus Left at Stanford University with snipes at Ted Cruz. The Texas senator is “Lucifer in the flesh,” chortled the former speaker, and “a more miserable son of a bitch” than anyone with whom Boehner had worked in his entire life.
...To fight Obama on these and other progressive priorities would have required exploiting Congress’s constitutional authority, particularly the power of the purse. Boehner and other GOP leaders were given this power because voters believed their promises to fight. Empty promises...
While Boehner was surrendering, Donald Trump was backing him to the hilt: a staggering $100,000 contribution to the Congressional Leadership Fund — Boehner’s super PAC, formed largely to fend off conservative primary challenges against GOP establishment loyalists. It should be easy to remember that number, $100,000. It is the same amount Trump gave to the Clinton Foundation. That’s even more than the $60,000 Trump gave to Kentuckians for Strong Leadership, the super PAC of Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell...
As they say on the real blogs, read the whole thing. And then pass it on.
Especially to your pals in Indiana.
It's time to take a stand against John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and the rest of the GOPe. The time is now. Take action now.
