Apparently there are more of us who are willing to *be* cornered (by the GOP-E) than to corner.
The GOP-E is clearly moving Left and there are plenty of trembling, useful idiots willing to shuffle along and board that train, believing a socialist will bring them peace and safety.
If it weren’t so pathetic, it would be laughable, but it’s alarming that Americans won’t fight fire with fire anymore.
While I agree with your sentiments, we should remember the choice Reagan had in 1968 and 1972.
He was also ‘cornered’ into supporting Nixon, who gave us wage/price freeze, the EPA and a liberal SCOTUS justice.
Reagan supported Nixon and ‘lived to fight another day.’ But I can’t say that he sacrificed his principles. If he did not do that he never would have become president.
