Talk in G.O.P. Turns to a Stop Donald Trump Campaign
The chickens have come home to roost. The GOP, having built themselves a corporate money trough to wallow around in, wants to destroy Donald Trump, because he is audacious enough to suggest that America’s best interests should come before the party’s.
Now what do they do?
Pool all their resources into destroying him, of course.
In this article in the New York Times, the case is made that the GOP’s various factions are all uniting to try and crush Mr. Trump, but at every step they’re worried it will backfire. “But the mammoth big-money network assembled by Republicans in recent years is torn about how best to defuse the threat Mr. Trump holds for their party, and haunted by the worry that any concerted attack will backfire.”
That’s because the “base” they’re so worried about backs Trump. They want to get the Hispanic vote, and the big corporations have convinced them that that means “don’t touch illegals!” The big corporations have convinced them that conservatives would *never* vote for a tax increase, which is a lie: we’d vote for fair, intelligently thought-out taxes that are spent to meet vital national needs, like better roads, water and power grids, and electronic network expansions.
Well, what are they going to do? The guys calling all the shots are totally out of sync with their constituents, and every day, more of those constituents are siding with Donald Trump, who’s calling them on their BS. This article tells the dark story of a party’s attempt to destroy their one great chance at winning.
Many in the party have concluded that Donald J. Trump’s harsh manner and continued attacks are endangering efforts to compete in the general election.
