Dick Cheney: Conscience of the GOP






Unreconstructed Iraq War pimp, torture advocate and Weekly Standard goon, Stephen Hayes, bringing the full weight of his moral heft to bear on this makes it awesome.

But Dick Cheney ... going on Hugh Hewitt... to call out Donald Trump for going too far is what makes it fucking art.

Once Trump is doesn't need these primary voters,
he is going to fire them like apprentices.

As far as the Dick comment of Trump. Dick is being paid to slap Trump.
By whom?

I have been rolling around my marbles trying to predict a Trump VP>

How would the great art of the deal go between Donald and Nugent for VP?
Would there be a VP prenuptial?

The Donald continues to make promises everyone (that is not at his rally) is aware is not possible follow thru.

It is astounding how all these FreeDumb patriots, true believers in the Constitution. Gobble up all of Trumps dictatorial messaging..

We've heard that Ike would be not far enough right for today's GOP, we've heard that Nixon would be not far enough right for today's GOP, and we've heard that Reagan would be not far enough right for today's GOP, but now it turns out Dick Cheney would be not far enough right for today's GOP,

Paul Ryan said the same. They're sticking to the same script, maybe this is the establishment pushing back against Trump.

The GOP isn't angry and afraid because of what Trump is saying; it's what they all believe, what Faux Noise broadcasts 24/7, what vile bigots like Rush and Beck and Hannity and O'Reilly fill the endless hours of hate radio with; it's the poison they've been pouring into the heads of religious fundamentalists and nationalist xenophobes and stupid, hateful, frightened imbeciles for more than 40 years.

They're angry and afraid because Trump is giving it out undistilled, unmasked by pretensions of religiosity and patriotism--raw, pure, white male hatred. They're angry and afraid because he's showing the world who the GOP has been courting from Dick Nixon through Dick Cheney...the worst scum from the bottom of the Confederate barrel.

They're angry and afraid because they can't lie about what they believe anymore. Trump's poll numbers have rendered that argument obsolete.

TRUMP IS THE GOP BASE.
