Skip to comments.Pride before the fall: Too many Republican candidates do not honor their pledge
Posted on 07/21/2016 3:37:03 AM PDT by detective
The third night of the Republican National Convention provided observers with that moment of true ethics and honor. Governor Kasich has not attended the convention and will not endorse Donald Trump. He claims to be a man of conviction, but what conviction? Or is he a sore loser? What about Governor Jeb Bush, who will not attend? Is he still upset because he was called a loser or low energy? Did he think the $100 million raised by his campaign should ensure his victory?
Could they be willing to elect Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump? Would they saddle us with Supreme Court judges and federal judges appointed by Hillary Clinton? Their ethics are less conservative and constitutional than personal. Their pride will certainly help Clinton in this election.

Too many professional GOPers are all and only about personal power and position. Nothing else matters. The country doesn’t matter. The constituency doesn’t matter. All that matters is saying whatever it takes to get the proles to keep you in office, then do whatever it takes to hoard power and position while in that office with an aim to make it a life time seat hold.
He is so pathetic in so many ways. What makes him think he even had a chance? It certainly wasn’t his mother.
You’ve said it well!
This post is the only moment I’m wasting on their RINO
GOPe hides! - Wishing HITLER-Y on us is ignorant.
Trump has done us all a favor for calling these people out and exposing them for what they are...self important liars who care about their own careers and their own power, not the our country.
None of them will have a future in national politics and we can all be thankful for that.
“Trump has done us all a favor for calling these people out and exposing them for what they are...self important liars who care about their own careers and their own power, not the our country.”
I agree. Trump has not only beaten them. He has exposed them for what they really are.
They don’t honor their promises to the American people either-it’s all about getting elected. GO TRUMP!!
One lesson learned from this election cycle is;
Honor and Integrity have entirely different meanings for politicians than it does for us folks out here in Flyover Country.
There are others, but these are the two we are dealing with right now.
I’d like to know what all those donors to Jeb! expected him to do?
Are they happy watching their millions evaporate? Wasted on a guy they were convinced to support? Who might have succeeded if not for Trump?
Do donors want to back a winner? If the winner loses, do they expect him to back his competitor?
IDK. Would love to hear from them!
These people have been playing the base for money and power for years.
They have all been playing off of each other in order to give the appearance of “effort” as if they were actually in opposition to the Democrats.
Doesn’t matter if it was the GOPe, Cruz, Levin, Beck, supposed evangelical leaders.
It took a total outsider to blow their whole game.
Anyone who expects a POLITICIAN to keep his word is a fool.
If the shoe fits, wear it..... as I have in the past.
“. . Kasich has not attended the convention and will not endorse Donald Trump. “
Kasich gets his marching orders from his camping donor George Soros,
Look for Kasich to smile approvingly at the Democratic convention.
Trump sure did. Kasich and Cruz cannot be trusted, their word is meaningless. Now one can justifiably question every statement they make: Is it self-serving or just a lie?
***It took a total outsider to blow their whole game.***
You said it! I haven’t read The Art of the Deal yet, but after all this, I’m going to.
Trump shines the light of truth on a lot of cockroaches.
