Republican leaders caught in crossfire of Haley-Trump feud
BALTIMORE – Congressional Republican leaders found themselves caught Thursday in the middle of a mounting feud over South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley’s criticism of Donald Trump, complicating their efforts to ease party divisions and craft a legislative agenda for the year.
Hill Republicans are meeting at a retreat in Baltimore to hammer out their 2016 priorities, including on health care and national security. But they’ve also had to weigh in after Haley, during the official GOP response to the State of the Union address, cautioned Americans about following “the angriest voices” on immigration, a reference to Trump’s hardline views on the issue.
Haley later made clear she indeed was referring to Trump — spurring rhetorical reprisals from the Republican front-runner and leading conservative figures. SOURCE
In all the years I have been involved in political commentary, in all of that time I have come to one conclusion; the Democrats became Socialists, the GOP became the Party of Reagan and then, not long after Reagan was gone, they too took a hard LEFT turn and started down the road to becoming the party of Dem Lite before they accelerated themselves into being nothing more than a mirror image of the Democrats and all the things Conservative American hate.
Now here’s the one thing about Conservatism I just don’t understand; how is it that when it’s convenient nearly ALL of the GOP calls Conservatism the way to go and claims to be a group of solid Conservatives and then, as soon as the election is over, damned near ALL of them revert right back to being Dem Lite, Socialists, go along to get along panderers that haven’t got the guts to fight for what is RIGHT in this country?
And WHY do We The People keep on electing these slugs of humanity?
The GOP is the enemy of Conservatism just as much as the Dems are, and I say this with a clear conscience, BOTH Parties seem to be united in efforts to take America into the abyss of Communism, Socialism or Marxism and the fall into that abyss is picking up speed.
“During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. We must resist that temptation,” Haley said in her Tuesday response. “Some people think that you have to be the loudest voice in the room to make a difference … Often, the best thing we can do is turn down the volume.”
Trump and conservative pundits fired back.
The GOP does NOT want Trump to become their candidate, they want to see him go in favor of an idiot like Jeb Bush or a wimp like Ben Carson.
Donald Trump is too bold, too brash and too plain spoken for the GOP and especially for those wimpy-assed RINOs and the Democrats that are always crying about HOW people like Trump, and YOU and me, are always so angry and are always blubbering about us being RACISTS and BIGOTS simply because it fits the commentary of the Left and the ignorance it encompasses.
The GOP is going to cost this nation everything that we have and everything we can ever hope to be unless we stop them dead in their tracks and elect a man of substance and courage, Donald J. Trump.
And for what it’s worth; Trump can’t do it alone. We have to give him a Congress and Senate stocked with Conservatives, not RINOs and Dem Lite.
We need to vote out every Senator, Congressman and RINO state governor holding office, place NEW and Conservative people in their place and give Donald Trump all the support we possibly can, then, if Trump fails, it’s on him, but only if WE do our part.
