Now I’m sure we’ve all done things, likely far more than any of us would care to admit, that if we were able to go back and undo them, we would jump at the chance. And as I’ve gotten older there are still those instances where I wish I had thought things through a little better, although these days it’s alcohol that is much less likely to have been a contributing factor. Although sometimes I wish it had been because at least then I’d have an excuse. These days some of my most regrettable actions come in the voting booth, after I’ve allowed myself to have been made a fool by someone who I had genuinely believed in, to the point where I was willing to vote for them
Which brings me to ex-president George W. Bush who is apparently throwing his fundraising support behind RINO/turncoat Liz Cheney in the race for Wyoming’s single U.S. House district. And it’s in so doing that W. has chosen to back one of the ten gutless RINO House members who sided with the Democrats in voting to impeach President Trump. And thus we have a perfect example of one RINO traitor defending another. Cheney is little more than a one-trick pony. She a Trump hater to the point where it’s ridiculous as she has demonstrated a willingness to go along with Pelosi on the subject of impeachment as well as the bogus claims of insurrection on January 6.
The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday one of Bush’s first campaign events of the 2022 midterms will be a fundraiser to support Cheney. Meanwhile, it was earlier this month, that President Trump endorsed Wyoming property rights attorney Harriet Hageman in her challenge to Cheney. Cheney is one of the most outspoken critics of Trump. In return, Trump has called her a “warmongering fool” and a “horrible human being.” Cheney voted to impeach President Trump for incitement of insurrection following the January 6 Capitol riot, ignoring the fact the former president did not call for violence or lawlessness. Rather, he continually called for peace.
Bush turned out to be such a disappointment on so many levels as president and has only continued to be even more of a disappointment since leaving office. He and the rest of the RINO crew are disgusting. We all need to step up and find viable replacements for all those RINOs still in office, including Cheney. While we can certainly all agree that Bush was clearly a better alternative than the two dweebs that he ran against, first Gore and then Kerry-Heinz, it’s worth mentioning that he also appointed John Roberts to the Supreme Court, and he has been an abysmal failure as it relates to conservative causes. Now we’re starting to see why.
And those running as “spoilers” in the Wyoming contest need to be forced to drop out to prevent Cheney from simply winning by default. If Republicans run a bunch of no-names against her to split the vote in the primary I hope this time the voters will not fall for the trap, having learned from their mistake in the past. Look, Republicans can do nothing anything about who the Democrats choose to run. However, they can do something about who the Republicans choose to run, by not voting for them. But sadly, there are always a great many Republicans who always drink the Kool-aid that the RINOs prepare for them at election time. It’s a Republican election principle.
Flooding the primaries is a time-tested tactic. After the primaries the selling point is always that ANY Republican is better than ANY Democrat. But any RINO is never better than any Democrat, if for no other reason than because they are one and the same. But too many in the Republican base never seem to figure that out. The more things change the more things stay the same. The replacements are there and always have been. But, at election time the RINOs always say those things that the base wants to hear. And they have lots of campaign money. The base always takes the bait and the RINOs keep getting elected. That formula has always seemed to work.
What we need, what the country needs, is a Republican Party of fighters. But we have instead, is a party of pussies who are afraid to stand up to the extremism of today’s Democrat Party. Moderate Republicans, aka RINOs, lack the gonads to stand up and fight for our values. They cave to the Democrats and are now more concerned with fighting Trump’s supporters than the Democrat opposition. And it’s these same RINOs who are completely useless. RINOs have had plenty of years to be in control, they’ve had their chance, and they f*cked it up, royally. We can not afford to return to the days of the milquetoast candidates like McCain, Willard, or Bush. Never EVER again.
I can’t be the only one to see how it was that George W. refrained from using criticism during ‘BO’s presidency but was quick to criticize a president from his own party practically out of the gate. I have no doubt that it still bothers him that Donald Trump made his little brother look like the wimp that he is while getting himself elected in the process. I realize there has never been a true presidential choice in my lifetime until Donald Trump. Every election our choices were either bad or worse. The ONLY presidents who actually stood up for our American values were Reagan and Trump. The Bushes, Romney, Dole and McCain had everyone fooled for years.
George W. is going out of his way to prove to any Republicans who are not already disgusted by him that he’s worthy of nothing but contempt. These RINOs stick together no matter what, and they all hate President Trump for exposing them. If George W. wants to double down on being the ‘Captain of the Titanic,’ that’s fine with me. And the entire premise that Cheney somehow deserves to be saved is ludicrous. She made her bed, and she deserves the removal the voters hopefully will deliver. The idea that prominent Trump hating elites can simply fundraise and buy her preservation is both an insult and a spit in the face of Wyoming Republican voters.
