Come uppance

TeachingKarl Rove and his myrmidons at the RNCC are behaving like fools with their hair on fire. The dilemma is of their own making of course. They touted the likes of McConnell and Boehner, told the electorate that Romney was the solution and lied before the election.
Now they have to deal with the revolt by the Conservatives and Republicans who are rejecting any establishment critters with a GOP label.

GOP donors wrestle with possibility of Trump nomination

When asked who he would vote for if the presidential race comes down to Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, the former mayor of Los Angeles and a longtime Republican establishment figure, Dick Riordan, says: “I would probably go find a deserted island.”

“I think Hillary is disgusting,” said Riordan, a wealthy investor who has exceeded $500,000 in political donations throughout his career.

And I think Trump is crazy,” Riordan added in a telephone interview Monday.

Riordan is not alone. In conversations over the past month, GOP establishment donors have confided to The Hill that for the first time in recent memory, they find themselves contemplating not supporting a Republican nominee for president. [snip]

The four Republican donors sitting at that lunch table — Schnabel, Freeman, Spogli and Riordan — have between them contributed more than $2.7 million to candidates and political action committees over their careers.

All have donated to former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign, and Freeman and Spogli have given $1 million and $50,000, respectively, to the pro-Bush super-PAC Right to Rise. [snip]

This gives a particularly nice collection of warm fuzzies seeing Bush augur into the low ratings. Seeing him crash and burn will be the crotch kick to the GOP bigwigs.

On one hand, Trump benefits from the distrust and insults that many establishment figures direct toward him. He says he does not want their money and, with a personal wealth of at least $3 billion, he does not need it.

But from another angle, such resistance could also signal danger. The business wing still carries significant clout in the GOP and traditionally the nominee is approved by — or at least tolerated by — the party establishment.

The quiet deliberations about Trump among these circles — and the recent decision to use super-PAC money to attack Trump, most notably by Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s supporters — may pose difficulties for the front-runner as the field narrows and electability becomes a higher priority than hot rhetoric.

Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski says he is not surprised that establishment GOP donors are sour on Trump.

“The GOP establishment will do anything they can to stop Mr. Trump from being the GOP nominee,” Lewandowski said in a telephone interview Tuesday.

“Mr. Trump is the only one who is not controlled by the special interests. … They want a puppet that they can control, and Donald Trump will never be that person.” [snip]

Hope n’ Change

Shoots and Leaders

shoots and Lenders

Let’s get a few things out of the way first: the mass shooting at the Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic is an awful tragedy which should never have happened. Whatever the gunman’s twisted motives (which remain unclear, although he mentioned “no more baby parts” in a rambling, disjointed conversation with police) he is nothing more, and nothing less, than a psycho killer who deserves capital punishment as quickly as the system will allow.

Clearly, the world would have been better off if this lunatic didn’t have a gun. But Hope n’ Change is struck by the hypocrisy of the president declaring “enough is enough” over this shooting of 12 people (3 killed, 9 wounded) while showing less interest in the holiday weekend’s body count in Chicago (15 killed, 67 wounded) than he shows in sports scores.

And the reason is simple: Mr. Obama’s goal remains to take guns out of the hands of the law abiding while doing nothing to curb the endemic inner city gun violence which takes so many black lives (which apparently don’t #Matter to him much.) So his selective outrage is clearly political rather than moral.

Make no mistake, Hope n’ Change is all for keeping guns out of the hands of homicidal lunatics. But how? What are the telltale signs which clearly signal that someone has gone around the bend?

According to voter records, which Democrats assure us are always 100% accurate, the bearded, formerly-married shooter was listed as a female. Was this a governmental error (unthinkable!) or a case of Caitlyn Jenner-itis? If it’s the latter, the Left assures us that this is proof of rock solid mental stability.

The shooter also lived in tiny dwellings (sometimes a shack with neither running water nor electricity) which once might have seemed the mark of a spooky loner, but now is laudable for producing only a small, environmentally-sound carbon footprint.

Might his college records have provided a tip-off? Unlikely, since even those who spent their college days actively seeking out radicals (and later consorting with bomb-making terrorists) – as Obama boasts about in his autobiography – are clearly on the side of the angels. Still, the fact that the shooter got his degree in “public administration” suggests that he’s harbored antisocial tendencies for quite awhile.

Sadly, there’s no absolutely certain way to make sure that the insane (or people who have become insane over time) don’t get access to guns – although Hope n’ Change is genuinely open to hearing realistic ideas.

Until then, we suggest that the president drop his “weapons of war” rhetoric when talking about sane people who carry guns to help ensure public safety, and instead finally get serious about the actual wars and staggering death tolls in his Democrat-ruled inner cities.


A national political campaign is better than the best circus ever heard of, with a mass baptism and a couple of hangings thrown in.

The phone rings and 80 year old Victor answers it.

“Hello,” says Victor.

“Can I speak to Moshe please,” says the woman caller.

“I’m sorry,” says Victor, “but you’ve got the wrong number.”

“Are you sure?” asks the caller.

“Listen lady,” says Victor, “have I ever lied to you before?”
