From Rush Limbaugh's commentary in the first segment of his third hour on 12/20/17

He simply exposed the utter folly of what she had written. And Jim Geraghty, who writes The Morning Jolt at National Review characterized it quite well. I can’t do any better than this. He writes, “A quick point on the allegedly ‘savagely personal’ attack on Jen Rubin, which consisted mostly of quoting her views on the Paris Climate Accords, moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, the Iran Deal, tax cuts, welfare, energy, and gun control and noticing that as soon as Trump signed on to Rubin’s policy preferences, she suddenly became a critic of those same positions.”

This is my point. Jennifer Rubin’s piece didn’t make any sense because it was at odds with everything she had previously written on these subjects. But her post contradicted everything she had ever believed, or previous posts, only because she was aghast, she was appalled that everything she agreed with, so did Trump. She was embarrassed because she’s a Never Trumper, Trump’s a pig, Trump’s unacceptable, Trump’s unfit, Trump’s whatever.

And so she was embarrassed, and so she wrote a piece that contradicted everything she believed only because she was embarrassed Trump also believes it. And this is what passes for our intellectual wing. And then there’s a follow-up to this. Another blogger wrote, quote — and this is the nub of it — “For some of us, it’s not that we changed our position, it’s that we don’t want this administration trying to do important and complicated things it doesn’t understand.” <------- Translation: They're butthurt :crackup:

Folks, this is it! That little two-line sentence explains 90% of the conservative intellectual Never Trumper movement. They simply cannot accept the notion that the things they believe in are in the hands of somebody so incompetent and rude and barbarian as Donald Trump. “We don’t want this administration trying to do important, complicated things it doesn’t understand.” In other words, “We’re the smart people, we are the experts, and this guy Trump and his mad cabinet and his bunch of no competent fools, they got no business implementing what we believe.”



A tyrant of the mind

Afraid to call it broflake because you're afraid that would label you racist?

You just voted for Obama because you wanted to tell your friends that you voted for the black guy, hunh?

That makes you a token voter. And a racist to boot. :wave:
