Teh Squeaky Wheel
Caturday salutations, Wheelizens!
Nice squirrel playground, Mac. 👿
We’ve still got six months until the election, my outrage-o-meter is already pegged…and it’s going to get even worse. Gaaaaaaaaah!
It’s good to know who we are:
“It is not the “conservative base”, the grassroots or the average Joe or Jane from Main Street USA who are currently digging in their opposition to Donald Trump. The base, the middle class, is entirely behind Trump.”
“The oppositional forces are the entrenched political class, the establishment, the elites and those who financially benefit from the DC status quo. This group includes the professional punditry and chattering class who associate with the DC confabs.”
Happy Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa and Sven!
Sven -- I agree with the second paragraph and I think the opposition to Cruz may have partly been due to his position as a senator, even though he is widely despised on Capitol Hill.
Cruz just didnt have the personality needed to connect with people. The right positions and philosophy, but a dull and for the most part boring presentation.
It’s interesting that anti-Trump now equals Establishment. Let the demonization continue!
Hai, Sven and Paddy!
“The base, the middle class, is entirely behind Trump.”
My personal objections to Cruz are based on policy; I am not a social conservative. I have a hard time understanding folks who are (allegedly) for small government, yet it’s somehow acceptable to use government to enforce their particular mores.
I didnt have many issues with his policies, but he wasnt my first choice: we’d already had one POTUS from the Senate and that didnt work out so good. I was hoping for a governor: Perry, Jindal, or Walker.
So it goes.
Stephen Hayes--another elitist saying nasty things about Trump and CLinton…but mostly about Trump.
“If nothing changes, this will be the choice presented to Americans in November. An ignorant, unstable conspiracy theorist with no core principles versus an inveterate liar dedicated to ever-expanding government. Clinton and Trump are the least popular major-party candidates in the history of polling. Hillary Clinton is viewed “very unfavorably” by 37 percent of Americans; Trump is viewed “very unfavorably” by a staggering 53 percent.”
