Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Re-redefining RINO in the Trump Era – A Response to Old Bathos

 

In a post you should read, Old Bathos offered a new definition of RINO for the age of Trump. Ol’ Bathos is making an important point: never accept the premise of the Left’s loaded questions. I submit that RINO is being redefined in a more significant way.

Before the election, Trump seemed like the one who was Republican in Name Only. After all, he was a newcomer to the party and had donated money to left-wing Democrats. In the past year, though, Trump has developed some serious conservative Republican credentials.

Honest question. I’m seeing several places where it’s assumed that most Trump supporters are Ryan haters, and vice-versa. My general impression is that while a few Trump supporters are both vocal and informed, most are neither, and tend to be blue-collar voters who probably aren’t paying much attention to the race or politics generally. Anti-house-leadership […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. The Purity-for-Profit GOP Leading a Reign of Error

 

Marie Antoinette's execution in 1793 at the Place de la Révolution.The French Revolution began with disaffected aristocrats wanting to reform their stodgy, inflexible political system. If only King Louis XVI would accept a more liberal Constitutional Monarchy, France could enter into a bright new future.

Once the revolution was underway, a group of the bourgeoisie decided these modest goals weren’t progressive enough, so they formed the Jacobin Club to steer the reforms further to the Left.

I do not fear becoming Speaker of the House. My only fear is that the House GOP lacks the cojones to elect me. The current House leadership is dysfunctional and helpless. Sure, I know the limp-wristed excuses: non-discretionary / veto / wait ’til 2017 / give us a bigger majority / Senate traditions / can’t […]

I got a promotion at work; now I’ve got a subordinate! Only, the company has some funny rules about how exactly he does his job. See, I just set goals, and he figures out how to accomplish them. If he screws something up, I can’t fix it myself, I gotta let him fix it. And […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. A Crash of RINOs

 

A group of rhinoceros (rhinoceroses? rhinocerii?) is called a “crash.” We might be hearing that term quite a bit during the 2016 GOP primaries:

Mitt Romney held meetings with donors in New York this week that left one attendee convinced he is running for president again in 2016.

Thad Cochran may not be with us forever. Two months ago there was some buzz about a primary challenge to Mitch McConnell. I was afraid that this was Democrats, MSM and the old guard trying to “Memento” Us. More
