Skip to comments.PJ: Trump ‘Double Agent,’ Cruz ‘Dragging’ ‘Social Issues,’ ‘Hate Immigration Stuff’
Posted on 12/26/2015 5:02:29 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Author and political satirist P.J. OâRourke stated Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump âwill finally be exposed as a double agent,â criticized GOP presidential candidate Texas Senator Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for âdragging in all these tired, sick, old social issuesâ and said of Cruz and Trump, âI really do hate it with this immigration stuffâ on Tuesdayâs broadcast of âCNN Tonight.â
OâRourke said, âCruz could actually getâ¦nominated. Iâm assuming that Trump will finally be exposed as a double agent, and will have to be stuck in a Chappaqua safe house, or wherever Hillary has got Bill stashed. But Cruz could actually get the nomination, and that would just be a disaster for the Republican Party. Heâs dragging in all these tired, sick, old social issues, get out of here. Stop it with the stuff about the gay marriage, stop it with the â Iâm a 68-year-old guy with three kids, Iâm supposed to raise my own children? Come on, I need immigration.â
He added, âbring in a boring guy. Okay, Republican candidates are supposed to be boring. Weâve got several thatâll do just fine, thereâs Jeb. Kasich is a perfect example, a good boring governor of a purple state, very popular governor of a purple state, lots of experience in the House of Representatives, and heâs polling at like no percent.â(continued)

Well, I Was talking about Cruz. But I will let you know what I think after I watch it later.
my better half is conservative but hates politics. shame.
when she goes to bed, i’m watching it.
but just seeing them sitting there seemed so different!
we became a TV show of a country.
So much for PJ.
Shame. Used to like him.
Yeah, cuz Trump has 5 kids
If he's a double agent, what's that make the Human Tortoise in the senate and the Bearded Clam in congress?
Never a word of explanation or hope, really bugs me.
Here is a good attempt at an explanation:
Jim Robinson has posted that he is aware of the problem, and that John is working on it. However, FR has been having character set problems since at least last October.
As for hope, I hope John hasn't given up.
I am with you ... can’t read a lot of the articles posted due the weird symbol stuff. Really keeps my FR time down. sigh
A pity to learn that PJ O’Rourke is becoming senile.
“and to see the Supreme Court taken over by clones of Sonya Sotomayor, Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Elena Kagan.”
None of whom would be on the Court without the collaboration of the GOPe Senators who voted for them.
No, he was never funny.
How remarkable is that?/sarc
Bad, the mental illness in this one, is.....
We're not babies, and we understand that some bad you-know-what happens from time to time, but just a word or two once in a while from the PTB would be useful and reassuring.
>> The liberals consistently choose âstyleâ over âsubstance.â <<
But I think it’s not only the liberals, because a substantial percentage of so-called conservatives are now supporting a TV “reality show” actor — with support that seems mostly based upon the candidate’s well-honed style of firing people on a fictional TV show and upon his actor’s ability to feign outrage when anybody asks him tough questions. I say the guy is about 90% style and maybe about 10% substance.
>> I understand Nixon didnât fare well under studio lights <<
Yep, the people who heard the JFK-Nixon debate on radio thought that Nixon won!
You’re being generous with that 10%.
