The Republican party, Fox News and the Rigid Right created
and has empowered the Trump phenomena. Due to their intransigence, it appears
he may arrive at the Republican convention with most delegates and most votes. This
former Democrat and liberal appears to be the worst nightmare of the mainstream
GOP. They will face a nightmare at their convention: If they do not
nominate Trump, he is likely to run as
an Independent and channel the enormous resentment against professional politicians of both parties, helped by Congressional
grid-lock begun by Republicans. Partisan politics of the Republicans have
created their own worst nightmare. Supreme Irony.
The GOP decided to undermine President Obama before his
first day in office, with McConnell declaring their prime mission being to deny
him a second term. Even now, they refuse
to vote on candidates for judicial positions already approved. Washington grid-lock is due primarily to the Republicans in
Fox News, supported and helped create the radical right we
now known as the Team Party. Fox News gave Trump much TV publicity on his claim
that the President was not an American by birth, now called the birthing issue.
A percentage of Republicans today believe President Obama is not legitimate.
Therefore the vast fear and distrust that the candidacy of
Trump is capitalizing on was created in fact manly by two sources: GOP planning
to undermine President Obama and Fox News. Both of these energies also
energized a more radical form of republicanism.
Now that the candidacy of Donald Trump threatens, buy its
energy, to blow apart not only the Republican Convention, but the party itself,
what an irony. I say to all my Republican friends: "for shame, you brought
Trump on yourselves by your animosity toward President Obama, by seven years of
mean foot-dragging in Congress.
Unfortunately, if we end up electing him, many other will be
hurt. The bullying that has become part of his brand is dangerous in the most
powerful office in the world. .
