The question needs to be asked, what is the GOP establishment thinking? The outright refusal of the establishment to acknowledge what the masses have been screaming against since the McCain and Romney-gate disaster. Voters skin are cringing having to listen to the media rattle off a long line of potential losers give frightening interviews on whether they are going to run in 2016.
The first delusional soul to come forward with a pledge to “explore” a Presidential bid is Jeb Bush. It’s hard to believe, I know, that Americans would ever have to deal with that name ever cropping up again, let alone for a Presidential run. Conservatives and the base nationwide have taken to Facebook and Twitter with their less than savory comments as the idea of Bush and Hillary running was described by Brent Dossell as “vomit”.
The latest name being thrown around by mainly himself, is Marco Rubio. He claims he’s “moving closer” to a decision, but “isn’t there yet”. At least he’s already set himself up with Jeb if he “suddenly decides” against a run saying that he has “tremendous respect” for Bush and that if he continues on to take a stab at running “he’ll be a very credible candidate”.
Many other names have reared their ugly heads in recent months, such as Chris Christie, John Kasich and even Mitt Romney and John McCain again. Insane, I know. So it comes back to the question, what is the GOP thinking? Have they not learned from the complete and utter failures that forced roughly 93 million registered voters to sit home and chose not to exercise their God given right? Do they not read social media? Nobody wants these guys to run! If they do, the party may be finished.
It’s no secret that Conservatives and the establishment have been divided for some time. Parting ways on just about every issue and principal. Some in the GOP are actually attacking Conservatives and seeking to destroy them. The party has been hijacked by many moderates and frankly, left leaning sympathizers. Being in bed with the left, really makes it hard to break up with them when policy goes horribly wrong. Most politicians have forgotten who they work for and that the people are the ones who hold the power.
The ends do not justify the means under any circumstances especially when it comes to fiscal matters, illegal immigration, education, terrorists, healthcare and basically all matters of our country. The wounds are deep and it will take a lot of proving themselves on the part of the establishment to get Conservatives on board again. Acting as if everything is just peachy, is only prolonging the agonizing death of the party.
The masses want to get rid of John Boehner, the Speaker of the House. Is it because he cries and there is no crying in politics, or is it because a man with a tan can’t be trusted? The various intentional blunders he has made have burned Conservatives and the base time and time again, from immigration to the federal budget. Boehner has become the poster boy for the butt of the joke and must be replaced. The time has come for strong leadership, where those elected start acting more like Reagan instead of just adding his name to their empty speeches.
