The race for the Presidency has only begun and many of the republican candidates are taking the white gloves off and showing a side that voters have not seen in some time. What is it? Balls! For the first time in years voters are witnessing pissed off and mad as hell republicans. While I must admit I am happy to see that my party has fight I just wish my party would direct their anger and fight in the right direction. In the past two elections I wondered what was wrong with the GOP, as in did the chosen candidates want to win the elections? It didn't appear so, as both John McCain and Mitt Romney allowed Obama to literally just run over them. Both candidates did nothing in my opinion to defeat Obama. My understanding was that republicans played nice and did not care to stoop down to the dem's level. While I disagree with the liberals and their ways of playing dirty I felt the republicans played way too nice. In the last two elections the republicans appeared to be more concerned with looking classy, sportsmanlike, and nice than wanting to win, but apparently as of recent that has all changed. The right has had it ,and let the games begin, but wait who's the enemy?
Ask Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Lindsey Graham, and Rick Perry, and they might say the enemy is Mr. Donald Trump. GOP, Trump is NOT the enemy. As ridiculous as it sounds some republicans are looking at "the Donald", as their enemy. Excuse me but aren't we republicans suppose to be in this together? I get it that those republicans in the race for the GOP nominee bid want to win, but come on, fighting tooth and nail within your own party? Really? Yes, really, and as every other republican from here to Timbuktu is running, it's a cat fight and one that's getting more and more entertaining by the day.
The war of words began with Jeb Bush after Trump commented on Mexicans being criminals. Of course Trump's comment was again taken out of context as he was speaking of the illegal immigrant Mexicans that came into this country, not the legal Mexicans. Jeb stated that Donald Trump doesn't represent the views of most Republicans, "This is a guy who was a Democrat for most of the last decade. I don't think he represents the Republican Party, and his views are way out of the mainstream of what most Republicans think," is what Bush told reporters after an Independence Day parade in Merrimack, New Hampshire. While I understand Bush's being upset as he has a Mexican wife, I was surprised at Bush's fight at Trump. Frankly I didn't know Bush had it in him. While I have always been a fan of Bush I have thought that he needed a firecracker to be lit off beneath him to give him life and fight. Trouble is I think the fight is headed in the wrong direction.
As the Bush spat was yesterday's news last week's cat fight was a spat that Mr. John McCain started as he made a comment referring to Trump followers as "crazies". Trump then fought back in saying that he liked the war heroes that weren't captured inciting an unwanted rival in John McCain. While republicans were sure Trump's comment on McCain would send him down in the ratings, Trump remained at the top. Then we have Presidential nominee Rick Perry."He offers a barking carnival act that can be best described as Trumpism: a toxic mix of demagoguery, mean-spiritedness and nonsense that will lead the Republican Party to perdition if pursued," Perry told the crowd at Washington, D.C.'s Willard Hotel, . "Let no one be mistaken: Donald Trump's candidacy is a cancer on conservatism, and it must be clearly diagnosed, excised and discarded. While Perry's comment was quite eloquent I find it laughable as Perry like McCain has been a man of a lot of talk and little action. As if McCain, Perry and Bush weren't enough Marco Rubio made the following comment in a "Fox & Friends" interview, referring to Trump's lack of class. "I don't think that the way that he's behaved over the last few weeks is either dignified or worthy of the office that he seeks. We already have a president now that has no class". I wish I could say the ridiculous attacks on Trump stopped there but there was more drama to come with John McCain's good friend Lindsey Graham. Yes like a school boy sticking up for his friend Graham came out after Trump as well by referring to Trump as a jackass. Funny enough Trump told reporters that he really didn't know Lindsey Graham but had a brief recollection. Awhile back Graham had asked Trump to put a good word in for him at FOX, and I guess he also wanted money as well and with that he gave Trump his phone number which Trump gave the press and told them to see if it worked. As luck would or not have it, the number worked and Graham followed up by coming out with a video on various ways to destroy one's cell phone after Trump gives your number out. Now I have to ask doesn't Lindsey Graham have better things to do then to make a video on destroying one's mobile phone?
While the whole Republicans versus Trump has been albeit amusing, I find it rather nauseating. Trump is NOT the enemy. Trump may well be the Republican nominee for President, and Trump may well be the only hope that this country has for being the super power it once was. I've had it with these grown men behaving in this light. Where has this behavior been in regards to fighting Obama and Obama care? Where has this fight been in going after Obama and Hillary regarding Benghazi? Where is this fight against Obama and his Iran deal? Thankfully Marco Rubio is leading a fight against the Iran deal, so at least we've got one of these jokers directing their anger in the right direction. Seriously, what are republicans doing? These republicans need to be talking Hillary, Iran, the IRS targeting enemies, watching the AP phone records, closing our borders, arming our military at US facilities, and going after ISIS! The enemy is not Mr. Donald Trump republicans, the enemy is Obama, Hillary, and the Democrats. While it's nice to see the right take their white gloves off, and show their ability to fight, I and many Americans would like to see the energy going against Hillary and important issues at hand. This country is going to hell in a hand basket in many ways, and the republicans need to come together. We need to elect the best man for the job and rebuild this country. Obama and the democrats have had seven years to get his country on track and have failed.Love him or hate him Trump is the man for the job, and the only man for the job.Trump is the man that will create jobs, rebuild the middle class,secure our borders, have the balls to stand up to ISIS, Iran, and Russia ,make this country great again!
