After Mitt Romney lost in 2012, Republicans met and held an autopsy on their record of losses in the presidential elections. At the end of the autopsy they concluded that to succeed they must work with Democrats. We can all see how that’s worked out – not well. The Democrat party got rid of their Blue Dogs and moved very far left to become the Democrat-Socialist party which they no longer see as radical.
Socialism demands overturning Capitalism though crony capitalism aka crony corporatism aka crony socialism is fine.
The point is there is no working with Democrats who see themselves as far left. In order to win our country back, we need a strong opposition which the established Republicans have refused to present.
They tried to force Jeb Bush on us and Stephen Hayes of The Weekly Standard made a good point on that issue this week. He said that Bush is a constant reminder of what established Republicans stand for and what the public has rejected. It’s time for Bush to leave the race and let the party reconstitute. Bush is part of the reason we have Trump and he’s a constant reminder of why people believe we need a Trump.
Obama has had seven years to infiltrate every government agency, politicize them, fill them up with leftist employees, empower leftist union leaders, and it will take a very strong person to turn these rogue executive agencies back to what they were meant to be.
Many see Trump as the savior, however, something he just said Tuesday raises alarm especially given the large number of liberal Republicans who are warming up to him or downright endorsing him. The Sentinel does not come out for or against any Republican candidate prior to the primary but it’s important for all the facts to be out and we would like to know your opinion on this.
On Morning Joe this morning, Trump said that he could and would work with the far-left Democrats. He cited his good relationships with Pelosi, Schumer, and Reid as evidence of this.
Do we want someone who will deal with the Democrats? We are trying to save our country.
Trump made the point that you have to go along to get along. That is what Republicans have been doing.
“It’s wonderful to say you’re a maverick, and you’re going to stand up and close up the country, but you have to get somebody to go along with you,” the front-runner for the GOP presidential nomination told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program, taking a dig at his nearest rival, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
“You have a lot of people,” Trump continued. “We have a system. The Founders created the system that actually is a very good system. It does work, but it can’t work if you can’t get nobody to go along with you,” continuing that the inability for Cruz to get along with them is a problem.
Not getting along with a liar like Mitch McConnell and compromising liberal Republicans is not a negative in the eyes of many.
Is Trump going to make deals or compromise with these leftists as Republicans have done for seven years?
“If I weren’t running for office I would be able to deal with her or anybody,” said Trump of Pelosi. “I think I could get along very well with Nancy Pelosi and just about everybody. I think I’ll get along well with Chuck Schumer. I was close to Schumer in many ways.”
Every deal that Republicans have made have been bad deals and ideologically left – far-left.
Don’t forget that Trump is not ideological and changes his mind dramatically and has done so recently on key issues. A number of other things Trump said this morning are not true. Cruz is not weak on illegal immigration and his strength in supporting the Constitution is very important to those of us who are constitutionalists.
Many of Trump’s stances are conservative but he is not a conservative. Conservatives don’t need a conservative, they need someone to move us away from this path of Marxist ideology.
So what do you think? What are we looking at here?
Ted Cruz made a good point this week. He said if Donald Trump wins in Iowa and New Hampshire, he could be unstoppable. The only candidate who is close to Trump is Cruz. He is the one who could stop Trump.
The only thing that will stop Trump is another candidate and Cruz is in the lead. Some say that Cruz is self-promoting but every candidate has to do that to win.
Joy Behar, socialist maven, is starting to warm up to Trump. That doesn’t warm the cockles of my heart.
