Nomination Excitations: Trump The Hump, Bachmann – Slam Her Overdrive

17 May 2011 @ 09:11

-Over at the Frugal Cafe, Vicki McClure Davidson has an excellent round-up of the reaction to Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the race for the GOP Presidential Nomination.

She sums-up my reaction to The Donald’s annoucement:

So long, farewell — time to move on.

But, so does Michelle Malkin:

Good riddance…

Now, if only Trump could fire Newt…

Donald Trump is an entertaining guy to watch – in small doses. He plays the role of bloviating, know-it-all businessman very well. But philosophically he was a throwback to the days when the Rockefellers had influence in the GOP – that is the kind of Republican he is: a New York version, which is a creature always more liberal [not libertarian], more ‘sophisticated’, and, most importantly, more concerned with taking existing systems and making them more efficient than questioning their existence. As a major force in the Party, the RR’s were vanquished several decades ago, but a few still wander into the village now and again to upset things.

-Vicki also quotes this interesting bit from Rush Limbaugh:

Michele Bachmann, I don’t know if you noticed, but the Republican punditry trained their gun sites on her this weekend. She’s the latest target. They’ve started opposition research on her. Our side has started opposition research on Michele Bachmann. Yes, they have. In fact, if you want I’ll open the next hour with it. The opposition research against Michele Bachmann has begun. Oh, yeah, that’s why I say there’s all kinds of stuff happening out there this weekend, a lot of it’s subtle, behind the scenes, you gotta know how to read between the lines, stitches on the fastball, but, yeah, she’s now a target.

I’m surprised that the GOP pundits aren’t hospitalized more since they seem to spend most of their time having panic attacks over true conservatives like Mrs. Bachmann and Mrs. Palin. These are the times when you still wish they manufactured Quaaludes [actually, anytime is, but that's a different story], so the George Wills, Charlie Krauthammers, and Peggy Noonans could be properly medicated, put in the rec room at the Nursing Grievence Home to play Bingo, as Musack wafts liltingly through the air.

    The very same ones who picked the loser last time think that we should let them pick this time. They were losers then and if we let them pick now, we would be losers too!

    In a way, this is good news Bob. The Noonans, Wills, Krauthammers and the RINOcracy ilk have been so wrong on so much for so long that the Republican base no longer depends upon them. They do not matter, not any more.

    What matters going forward is the Tea effect on the electoral process. That process is corrupt. If the center-right majority of the country fails to correct the weaknesses that Surprise! gave us McCain, we shall be sunk.

    Yos/ Si Vi Pacem; the Stupublican Establishment Elite is aware of the loss of support among the conservative base. That is why the elite is trying to remove any truly conservative alternatives.
    While they tread more carefully when talking about Bachmann, Palin and Cain they feel safe in bashing Ron Paul or Trump. As far as the Elite is concerned Trump and Bachmann and the rest are all the same IE: not one of them. They fear Ron Paul the least as they’re confident he can’t win the nomination. Note how when asked about those who are running, Huntsman who hasn’t even formed an official exploratory committee, is on the list but Herman Cain if mentioned at all it’s only as an after thought. Who in the Hell is this clown Huntsmen? Until a couple months ago I’d never heard of him. Based on what I have heard, in my opinion at best he’s a squishy RINO at worst he’s some kind of plant from the Bolsheviks.
    Is our Chinese Embassy in Manchuria?

    Thank you for the link, Bob. And for the record, as much as I like and often agree with George Wills, he predicted years back during the 1980 elections that Ronald Reagan had no chance in Hades of winning. Just sayin’…

    How many thought Scott Brown had no chance of winning? Or Rand Paul? Or Pat Toomey? Or Lt. Col. Allen West? Or Marco Rubio? Or Daniel Webster? Or Tim Scott? Predictions this far in advance are just like belly buttons… they all have limited depth and have unwanted lint in them.

    The republican party always finds a way to pull defeat from the jaws of victory.
