Bi-Polarizing: Trump now attacks GOP – From the LEFT

by C. Edmund Wright on July 27, 2015

Without a doubt, Donald Trump instinctively understands the mood of the country on

Donald Trump and Barack Obama agree on what caused the economic crash.

Donald Trump and Barack Obama agree on what caused the economic crash.

key issues and is tapping into this anger at all of Washington – the Democrats, the Jurassic media, the Republican establishment politicians, consultants, lobbyists and donors, and of course the right leaning establishment media – as only Donald Trump can do. He is demonstrating that his instincts are superior to most politicians, and he certainly has all the right enemies at the moment.

As a direct result, his poll numbers are surging. There is correlation here.

This is very refreshing. Moreover, it’s extremely important. This blunt tone and accompanying fearlessness are exactly what these times call for. It should be a teachable moment to all who are seeking the nomination, although it seems only Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina – who are both predisposed to being blunt by the way – are enjoying it. These strong attacks on Washington are from the right, and they are rightly harsh.

And in predictable and formulaic fashion, the Washington-Manhattan establishment calls Trump polarizing. So what’s your point? The Republicans win elections when they are polarizing. They lose every time they run scared of polarizing.

Trump is not scared of that. and frankly I wish it were that simple with Trump. It is not. As he proved (again) this weekend, Donald Trump is more accurately described as bi-polarizing. In a period of a few days, he occupied both the right and left flanks while on attack. Specifically in his cross-hairs were George W. Bush and Scott Walker. He did a pretty good Debbie Sergeant Schultz impression in laying out his case against them.

Now if you want to attack Bush and Walker, that’s fine – but do so from the right! There is room there, especially with any Bush. Don’t channel Obama and Biden in campaign mode. This is very problematic in light of the fact that Trump was more of a liberal Democrat than a Republican for most of his adult life.

On Morning Joe he stated “when the economy crashed so horribly under George Bush, because of mistakes they (Republicans) made…with banking and a lot of other things… I don’t think the Democrats would have done that.” Uh Donald, I hate to quibble, but it was precisely the Democrats who DID do that, and Bush even tried to stop them as far back as 2003. Have you ever heard of Barney Frank and Chris Dodd? So much for equating personal wealth with being an economic genius.

To clarify further, I really do support his recent conversion, and he’s incredibly passionate and talented in expressing the conservative few on a number of issues. However, do we need the recent convert as our leader after 25 minutes?

No, because no recent convert can possibly show any long-term conservative intuition.

Listening to Trump on Scott Walker - sounds a lot like Richard Trumka

His Bush attack was based on the same misconception has given Barack Obama two straight wins. We know this because the percentage of people who voted for Obama was nearly identical to the percentage of people who still blamed Bush for the economy – even in 2012! This was aided by the fact that both the McCain and Romney Campaigns agreed with the liberals that Bush was to blame. Apparently, Donald thinks so too. Do we really need to try this again?

Now this is not to defend Bush. I’ve been very harsh on Bush (and Karl Rove) for many years. But it’s important that we shift the focus from “who” and think “why” for just a moment. The economy crashed while Bush was in the White House, but not because he was there. When you trace many years of the policies related to housing and mortgages, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac – in addition to stringent anti-energy EPA restrictions – what you understand that if Bush were to blame, it was only because he did too little to roll back 30 years of applied liberalism. And he was not President during most of that time.

And even the bankers nefarious actions – which were quintessential cronyism with all of those esoteric Wall Street derivatives – are the opposite of free enterprise and conservatism. That’s socialism.

So blame Bush? We can to a degree because he was too inarticulate and scared to speak the truth from the bully pulpit about anything, including the causes of the crash. But be careful. Understand blaming Bush means by association blaming conservatism, free enterprise and all Republicans. It was precisely the lack of freedom in enterprise and the abandonment of conservative principles that were the problem. I submit that as long as this is not understood, by at least another 2-3% of the population, Republicans cannot ever win the White House.

Trump is not helping on this count.

It’s axiomatic that when people blame a President, it means they want to try going in the other direction across the board. In 08 and 12, that meant someone like Obama. Among these confused people, as recently as this weekend, was Donald Trump. Trump clearly said in 2009 he identified more as a Democrat on the economic crash – and he doubled down on the sentiment this weekend.

But there’s more. He took the liberal union thug talking points book and aimed many of those same arguments right at Scott Walker, saying that “Wisconsin is in turmoil.” He went on to clarify in Iowa – where Walker is polling very well – that the state’s “roads, schools and hospitals, which he said were all a disaster.” Let me translate Trummp: Scott Walker screwed up Wisconsin by going after the unions. CRINGE.

These notions are right out of the union hall. It’s going after Walker from the left. Yes, I know,  Trump was angry for some comments made by a Walker fund-raiser. That’s no excuse for firing from the liberal flank, and frankly, a bit thin skinned too. But my main concern is that liberal union thing, which has been exposed again.

So how will this play out? Will Trump’s legion of fans take note? Will the big radio talkers mention this in perspective? Most of them are singularly focused on Trumps good points. That’s a valid, but incomplete focus. It is not contradictory to support and enjoy his stabs at Washington – while also realizing in the sober moment that he may not the conservative answer. These dalliances this weekend are not just a violation of some kind of purity test. These were hard core leftists positions.

Donald Trump is gifted. He is passionate. He has a finger on the pulse at the moment. I am not convinced that conservatives need to nominate someone who has been pro Obama and pro Universal Care as recently as a few years ago – and to the left of George W. Bush and Scott Walker this weekend. Something to think about…..

Rush is missing his own standards for proportionality on Trump.

Rush is missing his own standards for proportionality on Trump.

Yes, in these pages, it was predicted. The inevitable decline of Donald Trump in the minds of conservatives. The polls may not be showing that now, but what’s transpired in the last 48 hours will have an impact – and soon.

In the last few days, Donald Trump has doubled down in attacking George W. Bush on the economy – which is fine in and of itself – but he’s attacking Bush from the left and using Obama/Reid/Pelosi talking points. In other words, the Donald has no idea what caused the economic crash.

Then yesterday, he starts slamming Scott Walker’s reforms in Wisconsin as a disaster. Again, an attack on a Republican from the LEFT.

Folks, told ya so….the dude is NOT the answer. He’s NO conservative.

Trump’s inevitable decline begins…..

July 17, 2015

So today Donald Trump has come out and insisted that he’s “a conservative with a heart.”  Let me translate: WE aren’t conservatives with a heart. Not you and I. Let me translate further: conservatism isn’t compassion, unless it’s run by a genius like me. Just saying….words mean things. This of course smacks of the George […]

The Banality of Planned Parenthood’s Evil…and other topics…

July 16, 2015

From the Nuremberg trials of the Nazi leaders after World War 2, we got the phrase “the banality of evil” – referring to the nonchalant non-emotional straight forward way these evil men justified their actions simply because they were “following orders.” This is the real cancer of totalitarian systems powered by fear, torture and death…..it […]

So Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney had a little chat the other day – about how to win a national election. How interesting.  After this little high level strategy session, Jeb proclaimed proudly “(that) yes, I got a lot of good advice from the last candidate who I wish was president right now, the last […]

Hillary, Lindsey think we’re all idiots…(or just their voters)

July 6, 2015

Both Hillary Clinton and Linsdey Graham have used obvious set up fabricated situations to allow themselves to swoop in with all kinds of compassion and insight. It’s their “Sistah Soulja” moment. First, Graham was in Iowa and a questioner asked him something over the top about promoting anti Muslim laws – whereby the womanish Graham […]

What the SF Murder tells us about politics (on right) of illegal immigration

July 6, 2015

So the murderer in San Francisco was not ONLY an illegal immigrant, but he was a veteran of FIVE deportations. That means he got into the country at least six times. Minimum. So what does this tell us? It tells us that any discussion on the Republican side about illegal immigration MUST focus on border […]

LIBERAL on LIBERAL CRIME: Jesse Jackson did what he’s done for years – which is to mumble incoherently and evasively – in an interview segment on Reddit called “Ask Me Anything” (AMA). It is Reddit’s most popular feature, and always includes a lot of questions from Reddit posters. Well, Jackson was asked about his use […]
