On Monday, Weekly Standard editor-in-chief Bill Kristol tweeted out what the rest of the Republican establishment is thinking: better Hillary than Donald. Here’s the tweet:

Crowd-sourcing: Name of the new party we’ll have to start if Trump wins the GOP nomination? Suggestions welcome at editor@weeklystandard.com

Kristol isn’t alone. As I wrote at Daily Wire today, Politico’s Jeff Greenfield says, “If the operatives I talked with are right, Trump running as a Republican could well face a third-party run – from the Republicans themselves.” That follows last Thursday’s Politico column from former New Jersey governor Christine Todd Whitman, who compared Trump to Hitler and called him “evil,” and last Wednesday’s Politico column reporting that Jeb Bush’s aides “began looking into the possibility of making a clear break with Trump – potentially with the candidate stating that, if Trump were the nominee, Bush would not support him.”

Last week, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said that former Mississippi governor Haley Barbour “and a lot of the Republican leaders would much rather Hillary Clinton be President of the United States than have Donald Trump represent them as a Republican.” And in November, The Hill reported that “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.”

I’m old enough to remember when it was scandalous for Trump not to pledge his allegiance to the eventual Republican nominee. Now, day after day, reports from party leaders leak, stating that should Trump gain control over the party apparatus, they will simply smash the machinery.

Today’s establishment Republican “saviors” of the Party like to think of themselves as fighting not Reagan or Goldwater, but David Duke – they color Trump a racist and a xenophobe. The truth, however, is that it wouldn’t matter at all whether Trump were the establishment’s enemy or whether it was Senator Sen. Ted Cruz, currently the second-place finisher in national polls. So long as the frontrunner remains an outsider, the establishment will use all of its power to stop them, including the threat of a third-party run.

Which shows, as always, that they care more about maintaining control of the party apparatus than about beating Hillary Clinton. After all, they said the same about Trump when he was threatening a third-party run.

Another turncoat... Wow the GOP-E is so flummoxed. TM

Jeb: I'm Considering Breaking My GOP Loyalty Pledge if Trump's the Nominee

These rumors started brewing last week, when Bush aides began whispering to reporters about the possibility that their candidate might publicly foreswear supporting Donald Trump as the GOP nominee. Then Jeb himself confirmed that his campaign had looked into the potential ramifications of trying to wriggle out of the party loyalty pledge he signed -- which he publicly affirmed in response to the very first question of the very first Republican debate in Cleveland. Remember this?

If Trump were to make a similar statement the PTB would be screaming their heads off about his disloyalty, his lack of honor, and so on and so forth.

The GOPe attacks on Trump remind me of nothing so much as the usual attacks by Leftists on any Conservative, a page from the same book. Amusingly enough, the more they attack him, the more I like him.

Yes, I think this phenomenon is happening across the Country.

I've got a couple:

How about "The Know Nothing" party? (but that one was used previously)

Or this - with apologies to Teddy Roosevelt (Who started the "Bull Moose" party): How about "The Bull S**t Party"

That sickly smile on Kristol's face is the definition of smarm.

Did anyone see Eric Cantor on Fox this morning with Bill Hemmer, still pushing Jeb! for all he's worth? SO glad that guy was primaried...

And now there is a similar move to do the same to that sob Ryan.

Anger has turned to action against Ryan. A Facebook campaign that just started called, “Primary Challenge Ryan,” already has over 24,000 followers. The Tea Party is calling for someone to run against Ryan in the primaries.

We need to primary all of them.

Unfortunately for us, as soon as one gets primaried, another weasel comes out of the woodwork and takes their place.

It's like roaches.
