What is it about the GOP establishment in Congress? They simply do not understand that ordinary Americans have rejected their decades-long weak capitulations to Democrats. The people did this by electing President Donald J. Trump, a Republican nationalist.
“It’s great that he’s coming and I think he feels a sense of civic duty,” said outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan regarding Mitt Romney’s election to the U.S. Senate. “I think with John McCain passing, for example, Mitt believes that there’s a role for him in our party in being you know a statesman and a standard-bearer in our party.”
Ryan and Romney ran together on a losing presidential ticket against former president Barack H. Obama and vice president Joseph R. Biden in 2012. The pair literally stopped campaigning during the last two weeks of the election cycle, handing the race to the Democrats. Romney was recently elected to the Senate in Utah.
Ryan has become known as a do-nothing during his time in Congress, and Romney’s biggest win in politics was bringing universal healthcare to the state of Massachusetts when he was Governor there.
“I would look to him as a leader who will be a standard-bearer of our principles,” Ryan repeated in the interview.
What exactly are “our” principles? Calling ourselves conservatives whilst failing to conserve anything? Pretending that we oppose leftist ideals but caving to them anyway and playing golf with them in the Hamptons on the weekends? Or do we believe in closed borders, small and honest government, the rule of law, the right to life and American exceptionalism?
One faction of the Republican party – Trump’s GOP – is working to bring us the latter. Ryan and Romney’s faction will only ever deliver the former. But by all means, let’s let Mitt be the “standard-bearer.”
Spineless Ryan criticized Republicans for “tribalism,” which, to ordinary Americans, is simply fighting for what we believe in instead of rolling over to liberals at every turn.
“It’s a little bit of a two-way street,” Ryan said. “The tribalism is just getting out of control and I see…the 21st century business model of getting hits and clicks and eyeballs on cable news, on websites has created this incentive structure and marketplace where polarization sells.”
Dan Crenshaw White Knights for Liz Cheney After Republicans Blast Her Support for Trump’s Second Impeachment
Birds of a feather flock together.
Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.
“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”
“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added.

Crenshaw himself was then roundly criticized in the replies to his tweet.
The people of Wyoming can do better than Liz Cheney, like the people of Texas can do better than you

I wish SNL never mocked you, because then you'd just be some un-known RINO, but unfortunately they made you a star.

Really thought you were the man. Much respect for your service and sacrifice, but if you are part of the GOP trying to purge the party of Trumpism. Count me out. I can’t handle more Romney n McCain candidates

So sad. Turns out your just another politician. You’re right about disagreeing. You’ll see it at the ballot box next election how we can peacefully disagree.

Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”

As the old saying goes, “birds of a feather flock together.” Dan Crenshaw and Liz Cheney most certainly do not represent the future of the GOP.
