Forgetting the Buckley Rule

While our border is a joke and Muslim Extremists threaten the civilized world, America is threatened in a more personal way by a coming identity change that will effectively eliminate the Constitution and render the House and Senate a lesser branch of the Federal Government.  That means that we the people lose our ability to choose the kind of country we want as the Supreme Court substitutes liberal politics for the Constitution. 

With the Supreme Court up for grabs this was a bad year to forget the Buckley Rule:  “Nominate the most conservative candidate who is electable.”

We can argue about whether Donald Trump is a Conservative, but it really doesn't matter.  He isn't going to win. 

Trump has one third of the Republican voters behind him and a longstanding 60% disapproval rating against him.  Too bad.  With the Democrats nominating the most unattractive candidate it could find, this was an election a Conservative could have won.

The average Trump Zombie has never heard of William F Buckley Jr... He's not a TV star.

This Endorsement Should Surprise No One

Chris Christie wants to be president... He wants to be the first really big president since Howard Taft... And early in his campaign he could see that it wasn't going to happen... At least not in 2016.

He can't run against a sitting Republican president in 2020 and he doesn't want to wait eight years.

So when the candidate most likely to beat Hillary Clinton (Marco Rubio) ascends in Iowa, Christie savagely attacks him in the next debate.  When Rubio receives attention for attacking and rattling Trump in the February 25th debate, Christie jumps in the next day and endorses Trump, the candidate most likely to lose to Clinton.

Not likely, my theory?  We could ask Mitt Romney if he thinks Christie is capable of sabotaging another Republican's candidacy to enable his own future run.

For Chris Christie, it's all about Chris Christie.

Mitt Romney's Speech

I don't know Mr. Romney, but I'm guessing that he may be a guy that loves to say I told you so... Come next November that is exactly what he will be saying. 

Romney performed a humanitarian service for those poor gullible people who think that in Donald Trump they have latched on to a bold and brilliant savior and sure thing. 

As soon as The Donald secures the nomination, FOX News and unenthusiastic Republican politicians will be the only positive voices supporting Trump... And it won't be nearly enough.  Every foreign policy expert, every economist, every newspaper, every celebrity, every pundit, late night host and comedian will be calling Trump out as an extremely dangerous empty suit and they will have ample video to prove it.   By the time they're done, even the low information Trump Zombies will stay home on election day and the rest of us who see the disaster looming... The landslide for Hillary and the loss of our majorities in both houses... We will be expected to dutifully go to the polls and try to save something... Anything.

With the loss of the Supreme Court and the Conservatives in Congress, nothing will stop the Democrat Congress from  gun legislation, Book of Romans Hate Speech legislation, and immigration legislation that allows Illegals to vote. 

So thank you Mr. Romney for softening the blow and preparing us for the end of those things we hold most dear.
