LOL:RNC

That is all.

The Republicans waged a 3-decade war on government. They got Trump.

FOUR YEARS AGO, WE IDENTIFIED THE DEEP DYSFUNCTION OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. THE RISE OF TRUMP COMPLETES THE SCRIPT, CONFIRMING OUR THESIS IN EXPLICIT FASHION.

............

Consider the ironies: A tribal party ended up nominating a man who has a very loose connection to the party and has had as many party affiliations in the past as he has had wives. A party moving toward more strident right-wing ideology, reflected in the candidacy of Ted Cruz, chose a nominee who is against free trade, has a long history of pro-choice sentiment, boosts Social Security, Medicare, and Planned Parenthood, and can sound like a neo-isolationist.

.......................

Trump’s bombastic rhetoric aimed at minorities, including Hispanics, African Americans, and Muslims, among others, including his pledge to build that wall on the southern border, will make it even more difficult than it was after the 2012 loss for Republican leaders to make any gesture on immigration that might broader the party appeal beyond white working-class voters.

A Trump victory, unlikely but far from impossible, would not create a new GOP: The old problems we identified would remain, along with new ones. There is no way to predict how Trump, who has no discernible knowledge of public policy or the governing process but who has made stark pledges on a range of issues, would handle his presidency, but the differences between his stated policy preferences and those of party leaders in Congress are substantial. In any case, Democrats will have enough members in the Senate to filibuster his initiatives.

On some issues, like immigration and trade, Freedom Caucus Republicans will be with Trump. On others, including his support for Social Security and Medicare, neither they nor the leaders will back him. Most likely, when it comes to things like torture and trade, Trump would bypass Congress and use executive action in ways that would potentially create constitutional crises and divide Republicans in profound ways.

Karma...

So on January 20, 2009
the GOP met with the objective of making newly inaugurated President Barack Obama a one termer..


Today is July 18, 2016 and…
President Obama has a 56℅ job approval rate..
John McCain’s in danger of losing his Senate seat..
The GOP Convention has descended into chaos…and it’s only the first day…
The architect of Fox News is on his way out in disgrace
And…. Donald Trump is the GOP nominee..
Karma…it may not come when you want it to but it will come.

"Christie was livid, right? the man said at one point. "Yeah," Manafort replied.
