This Is the Problem Right Here, Cont.

 

Rich Lowry is, again, out to lecture on just how different Trump is, with the implication it is a bad thing.

It’s not normal for politicians to be greeted rapturously by sports fans unless they just adroitly handled some crisis or won a major war

This is in response to how Trump was received in SC at the Football game.

He goes on to say

He continues to be less a politician than a political and cultural phenomenon

This is both right and wrong. Trump is most certainly a politician. He is not a career politician, but a citizen-politician as envisioned by the Founders. Trump is clearly a cultural phenomenon, as much, or even more so, than Obama, or Kennedy or FDR. Or dare I say it, Ronald Reagan.

As to why Trump is a cultural phenomenon, this is old news. This is what has happened because Conservatism, Inc. and the GOP are losers. They have not one transformational idea even in the pipeline. Indeed, Ron DeSantis and the Florida Legislature ended Disney’s special status, and much of Conservatism, Inc. could not even cheer it. And most other GOP-controlled states would have just never done it.

Here we are because Conservatism, Inc. and the GOPe don’t offer any real change to the trajectory of the nation. Trump, on the other hand, calls the state of the nation as it is and promises to do something about it. Conservatism, Inc. and the GOPe are more concerned with decorum and the status quo.

    Rich is for removing statues.

    Is this so? WFB must be doing cartwheels in his grave. Erase our history? Yeah, that’s conservative.

    Oh, he wanted to take them all down and put them in museums. Not out where people can, you know see them daily. Just sometimes.

    Which is what the people who took down Robert E. Lee said they were going to do.

    But then they melted down his statue instead.

    Because Democrats do not keep their promises. And Republicans only do it rarely.

    He (and they) still refuse(s) to understand that it’s not him they cheer for,  but the return of the American spirit and the American dream. We have/had a country. Now we have a police state and 24/7 propaganda telling stupid people what to think. That includes Rich Lowry.

    It’s him, too.  You can groove over a fine torque wrench or a particularly good pair of binoculars.  You can also cheer a once or twice in a lifetime politician.

    The problem is that people like Rich think the alternative is better. This has been demonstrably false in the White House, as well as several deep blue states. Never-Trumpers talk about sticking to their principles, but I refuse to die by their principles . . .

    What principles? Endless wars? Marginal tax cuts?

    Rich is for removing statues.

    Is this so? WFB must be doing cartwheels in his grave. Erase our history? Yeah, that’s conservative.

    Oh, he wanted to take them all down and put them in museums. Not out where people can, you know see them daily. Just sometimes.

    Maybe by appointment.

    And with an entrance fee.

    And a social credit machine.

    Ricochet is center-right in the sense that we hash out a tenable position. 

    National Review is (n0w) center-center-right and has calcified its position. 

    And this falcon isn’t listening to that falconer because the center-center-right cannot hold.

    I get your point but these labels are ultimately meaningless. Everyone defines ‘right’ differently. Honestly, i myself can’t define it. 

    Where does nationalism and globalism fall on the left/right spectrum? It can apply to either ideology.

    At some point arguing with socialists about lowering taxes and  why it’s better for society and wonder why their simple truths aren’t being consumed or processed by these rabid activists should register as futile.

    NR thinks they can argue and then somehow elect ourselves out of this without a political  ‘shot’.

    They signaled this by assembling essays and labeled them Never Trump as a cover special edition. 

    It is these people the Never Trumpers who are obsessed with personality. They think his supporters are enthralled. They’re not. They just have different priorities. Those who claim cult are simply and are projecting their orientation.

     


    It’s not normal for politicians to be greeted rapturously by sports fans unless they just adroitly handled some crisis or won a major war

    I could write an essay on how ridiculous this sentence is.

    And Jebbang is the real political messiah.

    Lowry is a Haley fan. But since she’s just a stalking horse for the Bushies, I suppose it’s the same thing.

    I think one of the Koch brothers just donated 70 million to Haley’s campaign.

    Will buy ads that will piss off Trump supporters. It is telling he won’t spend his money defeating democrats.

    He wants “George Bush in a dress” as Mark Levin describes her. IOW, a RINO who prefers to work with Demo-rats. This won’t end well, but 2024 will be entertaining  . . . for a while.

    I mean, if the Kochs want to throw away 70 million, maybe they could throw some my way? I can put it to better use.

    I’m pretty much confused by what I hear/read. Checked with Clay & Buck for a half-hour or so. Heard both say that Haley would easily defeat Biden. Personally, I doubt it because I don’t think Trump voters will support her. They’ll probably vote a straight Repub ticket and leave the top slot blank. Or just stay home and drink heavily.

    Although I assume that’s wishcasting, there’s another election she would have to win first. A primary. And that ain’t happening.

    Ricochet is center-right in the sense that we hash out a tenable position.

    I thought Ricochet was “center-right” because it’s run by RINO Squishes?

    It is these people the Never Trumpers who are obsessed with personality. They think his supporters are enthralled. They’re not. They just have different priorities. Those who claim cult are simply and are projecting their orientation.

    Ayup.


    It’s not normal for politicians to be greeted rapturously by sports fans unless they just adroitly handled some crisis or won a major war

    I could write an essay on how ridiculous this sentence is.

    I thought that sentence was perfectly pitched to say “Bush good, Trump bad.”

    And Jebbang is the real political messiah.

    There’s just one left, isn’t there?

    Until they can age up the clone.

    How did Vivek describe her?  Dick Cheney in 3-inch heels?
