So what do you think it is, exactly, that drives RINO Jeff Flake? And who is it that he thinks he’s really fooling here? If nothing else Flake will be forever known as the perfect poster-boy for that cadre of liars that we routinely identify as RINOs. He’s proven himself to be worse even than his mentor, ‘The Maverick’. The only other one who even comes close is Romney. I still can’t believe that Utah actually put that snake in the Senate. But that’s a discussion for another day. In getting back to Flake, he continues to be suffering from what can only be delusions of grandeur as he apparently hasn’t yet ruled out making a run at President Trump come 2020.
I seriously doubt he thinks he can beat the president. Instead I think his true objective would only be to make it easier for any Democrat candidate to win. That said, it was this past Friday evening during an interview over there at ‘fake news’ headquarters, aka the Communist News Network (CNN), that Flake said he hasn’t yet ruled out running against President Trump in 2020. It was none other than that ‘King of Fake News’, faux journalist Jim Acosta who asked, “Let me ask you this. As you’re leaving Congress, as you’re leaving Washington, you’ve said a Republican needs to challenge Donald Trump in 2020. Is that going to be you on the Republican side, Senator?”
Flake responded, “There are others that seem more willing than I am. I’ve been doing this for 18 years now. It’s – it’s nice to look forward to a little break. But somebody does need to challenge the President.” Which prompted Acosta to ask, “Will you think about it, do you think? Will you consider it?” Flake said, “Like I said, I haven’t ruled it out, I’m a long way from there. But somebody needs to. I think that the country needs to be reminded what it means to be conservative, certainly on the Republican side, and what it means to be decent as well because we need a lot more of that in our politics.” I still find it odd that Flake views himself as a conservative.
Flake has long had a rather adversarial relationship with the president. Flake has denounced him repeatedly as deviating from ‘his’ vision for the Republican Party. As if HIS vision of the party is somehow the right one. And since he didn’t have enough support to be elected dogcatcher, Flake opted to ‘retire’ instead of running for reelection last November. Back in August, when asked if he thought he could win a Republican primary for his seat, he said, “Not a chance today. That won’t always be the case, but it is today. This is the president’s party much to my consternation and I think the long-term detriment to the party. I hope that’s not always the case.”
At the end of the day I’m thinking that no one really cares what Flake does. And my advice to him would be to just get over himself and move on, that horse is now officially dead! But seriously, what possible career path might he have in mind? Perhaps a lobbyist? Doubtful, because I just don’t think he’s that smart, and who is it, anywhere in Washington, that would want to be seen in the company of this dirt bag? The people at MSNBC have sucked up to him for years, but they’re not going to hire him for anything other than an occasional comment, or when in need of someone to attack President Trump. He has little credibility on any important topic.
Frankly, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him run as a Democrat or, at the very least, an Independent. He strikes me as being another Charlie Crist of Florida or Arlen Spector of Pennsylvania. These guys were scumbag opportunists willing to change sides whenever convenient because, after all, it was not really about standing on principle, or even about their constituents, it was only about themselves, and what it might take to keep them in power. Arlen was a Democrat from 1951 to 1965, then a Republican from 1965 until 2009, then he switched back to Democrat under ex-president Obummer. Unprincipled turncoats, every damn one of them.
Flake accuses the president of deviating from HIS vision of the Republican Party and yet I think it’s safe to say that it’s Flake who stands at complete odds with over 90 percent of all Republicans. Flake is a petty, petulant, adolescent, backstabbing little coward of a man, a progressive Democrat, really, claiming to be a conservative Republican. We all watched as he chose to cave on Judge Kavanaugh after being confronted by a bunch political activists in an elevator and who also happened to be on the payroll of Democrat Sugar-Daddy, George Soros. The man has no integrity, no spine, no leadership potential, and should now at this point just get out of the way.
