One certainly cannot “fix stupid” so, in order to lend the appearance of some sort of intelligence to the RNC and Republican Party leadership, I shall term their current situation as simply desperation.
They are completely clueless that the reason Barack Obama sits in the White House for two terms is the RNC. The reason that Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid controlled Congress for so long is the RNC. And the reason Donald Trump is bowling over candidates and attracting ‘yuuge’ crowds (in Bernie Sanders Speak) is the RNC.
And now they are desperate; JEB! is gone; Christie is gone; Graham is gone; Kasich is on life-support… they hate Trump and detest Cruz more. There’s only Marco Rubio. (He isn’t afraid of compromising with the Democrats, so the Status Quo can still be preserved; booty and power shared.)
So the “desperation syndrome” the RNC has acquired sets in, where no stupid idea goes untried… or unexcused.
Enter Mitt Romney on the Fox News Channel last week, suggesting that there’s a “problem” with Donald Trump’s taxes… or, as Mitt described it, “back taxes.” (Doesn’t that imply taxes not paid, as in “owed”?) Anyway, according to Mitt, it’s a “bombshell.”
Isn’t this latest RNC ploy ironic? After Senator Harry Reid’s blanket assertions and unfounded questions concerning his taxes in the 2012 presidential elections, Mitt Romney now plays the Harry Reid card? Amazing.
Then, on Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace presses Donald Trump to give the viewers his gross income, effective tax rate, and how much he gave to charity?
Does the RNC not grasp that this type of desperation ploy will drive more voters toward Trump and NOT “take him out”?
The unbridled surrender of the GOP leadership to Obama’s agenda, wrecking the economy, killing fossil fuels, opening borders, outlawing First Amendment freedoms, Balkanizing the nation, shredding the law… that’s what people are worried about.
Pursuing side issues will not move voters from Trump to an “establishment” candidate.
The RNC still doesn’t get it and Fox pundits harassing Trump won’t help.
