Today’s GOP: Burned Bridges & Broken Promises
Reed Galen

“Rarely does there appear to be a time when so much of the American population is looking for a new direction, new leadership and new options in their politics. Let’s not waste this chance. Let’s get to work.”

We already have that new direction, leadership and new options in a candidate…Donald Trump! Who won the GOP nomination fair and square.

How easily Reed and the “nevertrumpers” dismiss these millions of GOP voters who have already cast votes for Trump. It is as if they are either invisible to him or, being racist misogynists and nationalist nativists (sarc), are of no consequence.

Tens of millions of voters are making their voices heard with just this message of wanting new leadership, direction and options that is embodied in the Trump candidacy.

Since I tuned to this blog because of the (lad) link from the Mullings blog (a blog I have read since the 90s) I have been sorely disappointed with Reed’s analysis. He can’t seem to see the forest for the trees, meaning he can’t get beyond Trump’s personality and style to see the bigger issues at stake for the country in this election. He is blinded by how Trump assulted his “sensibilities” as a gentleman who could never support a cad like Trump.

There have been countless posts by leading commentators from Victor Davis Hansen to Lloyd Marcus to even the codgy old Ben Stein who would argue a Trump victory would be better for the country (and conservatives) than another Clinton White House.

And to further prove my point that Trump’s support is widespread, here are the comments from two GAY Trump supporters interviewed by the WSJ….”Lainhart said he works in the steel industry, and is “tired of the bullsh*t government. Time for a change. Trump’s the man for it.” Moore added he believes Trump “would bring more jobs to the country.”

In light of the new FBI re-opened email investigation resulting in Clinton’s falling poll numbers, Trump’s chances have never looked better.

I will post a comment only once more to this blog….when Trump is elected president. I expect then for Reed to drop his GOP affiliation and become an Independent, where he belongs.
