Fuck Steve Schmidt

Yes, he's eloquent and he's doing his best to bring Trump down. But Schmidt, and many like him, made Trump possible.

Schmidt was on Dick Cheney's staff and helped Bush/Cheney come to power. Where was his conscience when Bush/Cheney "won" through a stolen election? Where was his eloquence when we were lied into Iraq? Where was his outrage when Bush/Cheney let New Orleans drown?

Then he worked on John McCain's campaign and was a major force responsible for making Sarah Palin McCain's running mate. Mindless, utter stupidity didn't seem to bother him then.

And even today, he speaks fondly of "Saint" Ronald Reagan, a man who was an amiable imbecile who was almost as dumb as Trump, and was too dense or demented to understand he was surrounded by criminals who were using him.

Put plainly, Schmidt helped make the Republican Party the sadistic thugs they are today, and he helped lay the groundwork for the election of Donald Trump.

Now, seeing where his career helped bring us, he's outraged and shocked. Shocked I tell you. How could anyone not see, decades ago, where the Republican Party was headed? Especially someone like Scmidt who is damn smart. I guess we're now supposed to thank him for bringing his eloquent voice to bear in opposition to Trump.

But he doesn't get to escape the fact that he, and many anti-Trumpers like him, contributed to making Trump's reign of terror possible.
