How the GOP establishment loses the battle of wits… always
Remember Michael Steele? Used to be Republican National Committee chairman, a few years ago. Now a Never Trumper.
He’s mad at evangelicals who support President Trump ( https://ijr.com/the-response/2018/01/1054669-former-rnc-chair-trumps-evangelicals-backers-should-shut-the-hell-up/) . To them he says, “Just shut the hell up and don’t ever preach to me about anything ever again…After telling me how to live my life, who to love…[emphasis added]” And then he goes off on a rant against Donald Trump’s alleged immoralities, yatta-yatta.
Meanwhile–whoa! What does he mean, “telling me… who to love”? When did the Republican establishment hop aboard the homosexual phony marriage bandwagon? Was it like when you’re playing chess and your opponent points and shouts, “Look at that!” and you turn for a moment and of course there’s nothing there, but while you were distracted for that second or two, he snatched your rook? Did our attention flag for just a moment–and that was all it needed for the bow tie and country club crowd to desert us on the issue of marriage?
Dude, it’s not us evangelicals telling you that you can’t have another guy as your sex partner. Imagine how easy it’d be for us, if all we ever had to do was go with the flow, whatever the trend, that’s how we bend. But it’s not our call. It’s God’s.
I don’t understand Never Trumpers. The alternative was Hillary Clinton, and that’s inexcusable. I’m a fantasy writer, I get paid to imagine weird things–but I can’t bear to spend much time imagining a Hillary presidency. Is that what Never Trumpers would’ve been willing to settle for?
We didn’t vote for Donald Trump because we thought he was a saint. We voted for him because he is not Hillary Clinton. His actual performance as president has been a glorious surprise to me–far, far better than I’d ever dared to hope.
The GOP establishment: the guys who spend seven years swearing they’re gonna repeal Obamacare as soon as they get the chance; and when at last they have a president who’s eager to sign a bill repealing Obamacare–they don’t bloody do it!
That’s another reason to be for Trump. Because he isn’t them.
