I was listening to Mark Levin while driving around on Monday and heard him ranting on why conservatives feel betrayed by the GOPe. It was impressive and I see Sundance has posted much of the segment. Go see/hear for yourself and see if your pet peeve(s) is on Marks seemingly endless litany of betrayals:
Did the GOP secure the border with control of the White House and Congress? NO.
Did the GOP balance the budget with control of the White House and Congress? NO.
Who gave us the TSA? The GOP
Who gave us the Patriot Act? The GOP
Who expanded Medicare to include prescription drug coverage? The GOP

Who played the race card in Mississippi to re-elect Thad Cochran? The GOP

Who said I think we are going to crush [the Tea Party] everywhere.? The GOP (Mitch McConnell) and who else said recently the Tea Party needs to be eliminated/destroyed? Tom Donohue, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
And while were talking GOPe betrayal, I see the powers that be finally produced the polls they need to show a Trump Slump so they can get on with the Chamber of Congress plan for America. They only had to chose their sample wisely, rework the phrasing of the questions a dozen times to shape the leading questions correctly, drop the level of confidence to +/- 6%, and stop the survey as soon as they reached the desired result.
For future reference here are a few tips on how to evaluate/interpret survey/poll results:
Here, let me fix that last slide for them:
And there it is: because political science and science science now apply the same stringent rules to their research.
MMMMMM - Bacon!

Kinda like this...
The following account of how the GOPe is corrupt and leadership needs to be flushed down the toilet is given by Ted Cruz. This is why the Republican establishment is in DEEP trouble, and needs to be flushed.
That Tuesday lunch began with our leadership saying, Were asking every Republican senator here, to affirmatively consent to lower the threshold for Harry Reid to take up the debt ceiling, from 60 votes to 50 votes. And we were told, everyone of you should agree for two reasons.
Number one, if we do this, it will happen, and hallelujah, hallelujah, thats what we want. We want trillions more in debt with no spending reforms, because were scared of this issue. We dont want to have a political fight on this.
But number two, if we do this, the Democrats will have the votes to do it on their own, which means all of us Republicans can vote no. And we can go home and tell our constituents, we opposed the thing we just consented to allow happen.
Now, I was sitting there to be honest, I hadnt gone to lunch intending to pick a fight, but as I listened to that, I was astonished and I raised my hand, and I said, Theres no universe in which I can consent to doing that. I spent two years campaigning across Texas, telling Texas, if you elect me, Ill fight with every breath in my body to stop the out of control spending and debt that are bankrupting our kids and grandkids.
If were to do that, I think it would be both dishonest and unfaithful to the men and women who elected me.
The truth of the matter is Republican leadership are the most effective Democrat leaders we have ever seen, Cruz said. Theyve passed more Democratic priorities than Harry Reid ever could.
