As I've said before, Donald Trump makes all the right enemies! He's already done a great service to the Republican party in identifying and isolating these behind-the-scenes turncoats. These are the Uniparty leaders who call themselves R's. They have made life difficult for conservatives for many, many years and as a courtesy now, they have self-identified. Add Paul Ryan to the list as he's about to get demoted and primaried out of office. TM

Reminder – The 2016 Trump Conservative Critics Were 2009 Obama Fan Boys…

By now almost everyone has acknowledged that Donald Trump ripped the masks from most of the modern professional punditry who espoused to be conservative yet showed their hidden ideological colors as elite globalists.

Most notably evidenced in June ’15 as millions of Fox News viewers saw the entire line-up of professional pundits proclaim: borders shouldn’t matter; border walls won’t work; illegal alien amnesty was the only viable solution to decades of unenforced immigration law; ObamaCare is not really all that bad, and the federal government doesn’t really need a budget.

Heck, to think, this was only in week #1 of Donald Trump’s campaign.

Since June ’15, on almost every issue those same pundits have now openly aligned themselves with GOPe agenda items like global trade, tax policy, big government spending, and advocacy to including advancement of Speaker Paul ‘Omnibus’ Ryan.

However, as sharp reader DrudgeAddict smartly pointed out last year, these voices were the exact group who gathered together in an exclusive meeting with President Obama in 2009 to sing his praises after the ’08 election. Including :

George Will
Michael Barone
David Brooks
Charles Krauthammer
Bill Kristol
Lawrence Kudlow
Rich Lowry
Peggy Noonan
All in attendance for a dinner meeting with president Obama before he took office. The post-meeting/dinner report in The New Yorker Magazine holds the following quotes told by the glowing participants of their time with President Obama:

Richard Lowry:“the only presidential candidate from either party about whom there is a palpable excitement”.

Charles Krauthammer: “Obama would be a president with the political intelligence of a Bill Clinton harnessed to the steely self-discipline of a Vladimir Putin”, who would “bestride the political stage as largely as did Reagan.”

Bill Kristol:“I look forward to Obama’s inauguration with a surprising degree of hope and good cheer.”

Larry Kudlow: “ loves to deal with both sides of the issue.” “He revels in the back and forth. And he wants to keep the dialogue going with conservatives.”

Indeed, it sounds like a joyful political love-fest amid the smitten beltway punditry in 2009.

So is it really a surprise to read or hear their current, and collective, opinion of the horribly unwashed pro-America vulgarian Trump?

Let’s review. Starting with the pundit who coined the term “vulgarian”, George Will:

George Will 2015: “Donald Trump Supporters Need To Come Into The Republican Party On Our Terms, Not Theirs” (link with video)

Rich Lowry 2015: “Look Trump attacks everyone but she’s become a much bigger target. And I think part of what’s going on here is that last debate. Let’s be honest, Carly cut his balls off with the precision of a surgeon“. (link with video)

Charles Krauthammer 2015: …”[…] And the pity is this: this is the strongest field of Republican candidates in 35 years. You could pick a dozen of them at random and have the strongest cabinet America has had in our lifetime, and instead, all of our time is spent discussing this rodeo clown.” (link)

Bill Kristol 2015: […] “I doubt I’d support Donald. I doubt I’d support the Democrat. I think I’d support getting someone good on the ballot as a third party candidate.” (link)

****************

When someone investigates the truth about Rich Lowry, George Will, Bill Kristol and Charles Krauthammer for starters, they aren't conservatives!



They are the Uniparty elites. They are the shills for the establishment!!! TM

If they don't attend they cannot speak or vote.

Oh well, so remind me, what's the down side again?
