Forget the nonsense from President Obama’s State of The Union diatribe of same/same left-wing nonsense cloaked in claims of incivility from his opposition. Forget that nonsense, it was predictable. Most of the electorate were more interested in whether the DC Republicans had received the message within a six-month-leading Donald Trump candidacy.
And…. the answer is a resounding NO !
There is only one party in DC and that is the UniParty run by Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. There’s not a hairs difference between them, and Nikki Haley just affirmed the GOPe commitment in that regard.
[…] “We need to be honest with each other, and with ourselves: while Democrats in Washington bear much responsibility for the problems facing America today, they do not bear it alone. There is more than enough blame to go around.
“We as Republicans need to own that truth. We need to recognize our contributions to the erosion of the public trust in America’s leadership. We need to accept that we’ve played a role in how and why our government is broken. (link)
….And then Haley went on to outline exactly the same lines of horsepucky spouted by the same White House who got everything they wanted in the recent and ridiculous Omnibus spending bill. Notable in almost every word she uttered including the continual demand for comprehensive immigration reform and open borders:
[…] “Today, we live in a time of threats like few others in recent memory. During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. We must resist that temptation.
“No one who is willing to work hard, abide by our laws, and love our traditions should ever feel unwelcome in this country.
“At the same time, that does not mean we just flat out open our borders. We can’t do that. We cannot continue to allow immigrants to come here illegally. And in this age of terrorism, we must not let in refugees whose intentions cannot be determined.
“We must fix our broken immigration system. That means stopping illegal immigration. And it means welcoming properly vetted legal immigrants, regardless of their race or religion. Just like we have for centuries. (link)
….“During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. We must resist that temptation“….
a transparently obvious statement targeted directly at candidate Donald Trump and his supporters. But what the GOPe is really doing here is targeting 50% of their own party. Trump holds the vast majority of support as the frontrunner for the past six months, and the insufferable elites can’t stand it – so they target their own base of supporters with scorn and abject disdain.
Hate for their own base of support wrapped up in GOPe talking points so entrenched in the cucumber triangle sandwich tour even the pontificating Charles Krauthammer was seen jumping out of his chair and clapping with applause. Fox News George Will and Stephen Hayes high-fiving in the background. YESSSS !!
The Weekly Standard will quickly opine all manner of praise and accolades for Nikki Haley. Staggering how far this wretched soul has dropped from the necessary support delivered by Sarah Palin and the Tea Party in 2010.
Quick put in the Trans-Pacific Trade Deal part:…. “We would encourage American innovation and success instead of demonizing them, so our economy would truly soar and good jobs would be available across our country”.
Bill Kristol says: “Attagirl” !!
America says: “B**ch” !!
Now sneak in the Common Core bit we’ve been lobbying for:… “We would reform education so it worked best for students, parents, and teachers, not Washington bureaucrats and union bosses“.
Tom Donohue and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce couldn’t have written a better script. However, it is remarkably understandable considering the GOPe have put all their chips on Marco Rubio and it’s now crystal clear that Haley would be the chosen VP pick for Romney to try and create a firewall in South Carolina. It would have been Jeb, but, well, you know what happened there… Everyone who will praise Haley will directly come from the Marco Rubio MSM and political camp, watch.
It would appear the right side of the UniParty is doubling down on disconnect and will continue their own objectives regardless of how much the America-first base demands they change.
So fellow Vulgarians, it would appear Nikki Haley and Paul Ryan are in full alignment. GOPe lives matter, and the rest of you, you, unwashed masses, slope-heads, and whack-o-birds can just go spit.
