Roger L Simon:
Republicans Should Take a Time Out
When I read this afternoon that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan announced (on CNN!) his reluctance to support Donald Trump, his party’s assumed presidential nominee, I knew it was time for the Republicans to take a time out, to shut up for, say, a week and let things cool off. Furthermore, hard as it may be, they should not for that period give any press interviews and they should refrain from making any public pronouncements.
Seriously. Just shut your damn mouth for a little bit. Spend some time before hitching your wagon or talking about not hitching your wagon or describing how you’d like to one day hitch your wagon but you cannot, at this time, hitch your wagon.
Shut up. Shut up. Shut up.
You sound like teenagers angsting on Facebook.
Ryan said he hopes to eventually back Trump and “to be a part of this unifying process.” The first moves, though, must come from Trump, he said.
Ryan said he wants Trump to unify “all wings of the Republican Party and the conservative movement” and then run a campaign that will allow Americans to “have something that they’re proud to support and proud to be a part of.”
This demonstrated to Murdoc that Mr. Ryan still has no idea what’s going on here.
Trump isn’t getting the support he’s getting because conservative voters want a “unifying process.” He didn’t wipe the floor with every single challenger despite a strongly organized GOP effort to stop him because voters want to bring together “all wings of the Republican Party.”
All wings of the Republican Party just got their asses handed to them.
The support of Trump is an outright REJECTION of the Republican Party. It is a huge middle finger at those running the GOP. It is the conservatives in America blowing their noses in Paul Ryan’s general direction.
Just shut up. For a few days or even a week. Shut up and get a hold of yourself before you say more stupid things that will be hard to explain away when you want people to vote for you in the future.
Calm down. There is time to fight later if you really think that fighting Donald Trump is more important than fighting Obama and Hillary and what is being done to America. But Murdoc hopes that you’ll realize that fighting your presidential nominee shouldn’t be the number one priority on your list.
