- During interview at Stanford U., Boehner announces he will not vote for Cruz if he is the nominee
- Calls Cruz “Lucifer” and a “miserable son of a bitch”
- Says he “Tweets” and golfs with Trump and will support him
- In their alternate universe Trump supporters will say this is more evidence that Cruz is really Mr. Establishment.
There is so much in this story that can make one’s blood boil and inspire a conservative to just say “to hell with the GOP”.
Very telling is the way Boehner talks about Republican conservatives vs. the way he describes his relationships with Democrats, including the most leftist of them.(ie. he “disagrees” with Bernie on “all issues”, but Sanders is a “nice guy”. At the same time he seems to “disagree” with conservatives on virtually “all issues” and he calls them “knuckleheads”, “goofballs”, and “sons of bitches”.)
Following his interview, the Stanford students probably joined a woozy Boehner in a rousing rendition of “99 bottles of beer on the wall”, and other ‘ballads’ favored by drunken has-beens, as a fitting end to a joyous tribute to the ‘modern’ Republican Party’.
John Boehner’s endorsement should be “problematic” to what supposedly motivates conservative support (if there really is any, any longer) for Trump. We hear from them how the establishment of the Republican party deserves to be repudiated but the only one that can do that is Donald Trump, a real-estate tycoon, reality TV star, establishment funder (mostly Democrat) who has rarely demonstrated an ability to formulate a coherent sentence or stick to what has been spewed as his solemn policy guarantees. But they know what he means. And somebody who has actually fought the good fight in the face of establishment opposition of the likes of Boehner, is a “liar”, “Lucifer” and a “miserable son of a bitch.” We are living in an alternate universe.
So as Don calls for, read the Stanford interview and reflect on what we had as leadership against the Obamanation, and the campaign Trump surrogates are running with their accusations of Cruz being an establishment politician.
