The $64,000 Question

the-gop-establishment

Once in a while, Rush Limbaugh really ramps up his game. Yesterday’s last hour was brilliant, and addressed points I have brought up many times in the last few years. To wit:

I have a question for Republicans running for the House and the Senate: Why should people vote for you? It’s clear that you don’t want to stop Hillary Clinton.

It is clear that many of you do not want to keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House. So if it’s not important to keep her out of the White House, why is it important to elect you? The answers are, “Well, she’s gonna win because Trump is so bad, and we’re the people that are gonna stop her.” Yeah, but where’s the evidence you want to stop her? Where’s the evidence that you want to be around to put the brakes on?

So if you are a Republican and you just can’t abide Trump — which means you’re not serious about stopping Hillary; you’re not serious about keeping her out of the White House — then people should vote for you because?

In the House and the Senate and the governorship, that’s where you’re gonna stop Democrats???

Well, they cannot really stop Democrats with governorships, even if they wanted to do so, which they don’t. The can stop Democrats in the Senate, but in the years since we gave them control, the GOP has done nothing – literally nothing – to stop Barack Obama and his minions.

Every person’s answer to this question must be a personal one, but I know what I will be doing next month. I will be voting for Donald Trump – if for no other reason than to stop Hillary Clinton – and I will take every other candidate on a case-by-case basis. GOP incumbents who align themselves with the establishment will be skipped, and this GOP straight ticket nonsense ends now.

  1. Dittos to what you said.

    All the Republicans running for national office here in Colorado immediately denounced Trump last week when “Pussygate” started. What a bunch of cowards.

  2. RG – Any GOP cowards on my ballot will not receive my vote. The GOP establishment is sabotaging this election to assure Trump doesn’t win.I’m fairly certain I’ll change my voter registration after the general.

  3. I think many in the GOP are in agreement on not voting for those who are up for re-election who don’t support Trump. Scott County had their Reagan Dinner last night and both Iowa Senators, Grassley and Ernst, were in attendance along with our governor. Grassley is up for re-election this year. Was glad to see he attended since Pence was speaking.
