“Look, the political history is clear. No Republican president opposed for re-nomination has ever won re-election,” RNC committeeman Jevon O.A. Williams said in an email obtained by the Washington Examiner. “Unfortunately, loopholes in the rules governing the 2020 re-nomination campaign are enabling these so-called Republicans to flirt with the possibility of contested primaries and caucuses.”
Poor little donnie.
They are all picking on him again.
And it’s all Obama’s fault.
He has called his good friend Mitt Romney and put him up to running for president.
And what an – almost treasonous – thing to do.
Suggest that donnie is nuts and America can do better?
From an additional source, known only to me, an additional RNC email has surfaced:
“That sort of thinking MUST BE ELIMINATED AND THE PURITY OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY MUST BE ESTABLISHED: THE BASE – THE RACISTS, THE WHITE SUPREMACISTS, THE SUCCESSIONISTS, THE MILITIAS, ESPECIALLY THOSE EMBEDDED IN THE ARMY AND THE MARINES, THE ANTI SEMITES, IN SHORT, ALL THE GOOD PEOPLE – WILL HAVE ITS WAY.”
Apparently he can’t think at a Twitter level of donnie-like brevity and clarity and has needed to resort to an older digital form of distribution.
He’s got the caps, though.
From outside the inner circle of the deplorables this all looks to me to be a good thing.
Concentrating evil in one assailable package should cause, one would hope and expect, a massive abandonment of evil on the part of whatever rational group still think they are republicans.
And I can’t think of a better bearer of the banner under which they will exit than Mitt Romney.
Whether he is allowed to exercise his rights within the party, or is forced into the outer darkness, his knowledge, qualifications and decency will stand as a beacon for the lost legions desiring to fight their way out of the slime of trumpland.
Third parties never have won.
But they have elected presidents.
