The coalition against: NRO spells NO

Now that we have NRO and the misfit coalition “against Trump,” it tells us a lot more about their views than it does about Donald’s.

They lined up far and wide to add their names to a hit list to denounce Trump as the Republican/conservative candidate. Fine, if that is your thing. Seems to me that we have been lectured for about a decade now that it is not enough to be against something. What is important is to be “for” something, they say. So this piece just tells you about who they are against, not who they are supporting.

NROAgainst Trump” | January 21, 2016

But he is not deserving of conservative support in the caucuses and primaries. Trump is a philosophically unmoored political opportunist who would trash the broad conservative ideological consensus within the GOP in favor of a free-floating populism with strong-man overtones. – Read more>

But therein is the rub. To include who they support would shatter their coalition into pieces. And there likely is not a big consensus on who they do support. Some of those names in there would be Jeb supporters. There are RINOs in the mix who probably would support Christie. But at least they can all agree on who they don’t support.

I like many of the pundits and conservatives in the No coalition. However, how much have they done for us in their influential capacity over the years? Not much and that is the reason we are in the spot we’re in. They can’t show you a recent record of success. That is one of the charges they levy against Trump.

Which all brings us to the next point. When you dissect this so-called conservative circle, you find that there are establishment conservatives. Surprise, what a timely reminder. Here we are with everyone against the establishment (staus quo) even on both sides. Along come these gurus of politics to out one person for not being a pure enough conservative. Skillet meet the kettle. But what do they mean by not pure enough? That’s the question.

Many of them live and breathe the beltway politics. They are interconnected to the RNC and establishment. Some are staunch supporters of amnesty. Some attack conservatives on a regular basis. Many think Cruz is too far right or extreme for them. But for the time, they all get on board to oppose the Donald. Some back big-government spending.

Then there is the net effect. Who gets hurt in the mix, members of the coalition of “No” or the Trumpster? My money is on Trump weathering the storm. If bringing people together to oppose something was their goal, then mission accomplished. Can they core an apple?

Here is one disgruntled viewer of the Kelly File which debuted the sultans of No. In her own words she has a message for them.

    When NRO included nut job Glen Beck on their list of prominent conservatives I knew before reading it that it was nothing but a hit piece, and therefore bullshit.

    Now we learn that Trump’s polling numbers rose even higher. Bwhahahahahaha.

    This same bunch is scared to death of Cruz for his want of returning to the Constitution.

    I am really tired of these so-called conservatives telling us real conservatives what to think. They can go pound sand. They have proved themselves nothing but establishment hacks and wannabes. Notice how everyone blurts out their conservative credentials while at the same time abandoning the core principles. I’m sick of the whole lot. Disappointed with some who lent their name to the hit piece too, namely Thomas Sowell.

    This was a despicable act by NRO and those who joined with them. I will not be swayed by their arguments against Donald and will vote for him if he is the nominee.

    If they think Cruz is the man they need to do a lot more homework to find out who Cruz really is. He is not the epitome of conservative values they may think he is such as Glen Beck who lost all cred once he was kicked off of Fox and went over the rainbow somewhere into la la land.

    In case any of your readers want to find out more about who Cruz really is I suggest they read this article:

    Cruz is completely off my list of those to vote for and I’d hate to think of him being president after reading this article.

    If these people are for one of the other RINOs they have no shame. I resent these people attempting to tell me who to vote for. Just who are they anyway to do this? I also resent them for thinking we, the people, cant decide on our own who we want as president. They know nothing about us at all.

      Pepp, thanks for the link. That letter is a much better read than NRO’s crap sandwich article. I don’t think they are looking past the nose on their face. Some of the things Beck said all along with Obama pissed me off. He flushed his credibility so many times telling us who we can support and who we can’t. We didn’t elect him, or these others, as gatekeepers.

        That’s right Bull. These NRO people must think their advice and what they say should be held in esteem. This only made me angrier and filled with defiance against them. I will never read any NRO articles again.

        Beck has been off his rocker for a long time now.
