It seems insane to me that there are still people out there that don't understand why Trump is in the White House. So lets make it completely simple:
1). Democrats abandoned rules / cilvility / decorum / decency / etc at essentially Watergate. The "Rules for Radicals" took over.
2). Republicans have been and remain pretty much "The Stupid Party" -- Yes, Reagan was brilliant and made it seem that "decency could win", and yes, W was an extremely decent guy that BARELY squeaked out 2 victories, but those are the exceptions rather than the rule.
The linked article is well worth a read. It documents the destruction of Palin and McCain's surprise that his "friends" in the media were NOT his friends.
In Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, “the fourth rule is: Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.” This is the book that “Reset” Rodham (what ever happened to her?) and BHO II grew up reading and continue to live by. If you don’t understand that that’s the way we see you — as the enemy — then you’re too dumb to survive. Remember that for us politics is not just an avocation, or even just a job, but our life. We literally stay awake nights thinking up ways to screw you. And one of the ways we do that is by religiously observing Alinsky’s Rule No. 4.Sure it is ancient news -- hell, back then BOTH BO and Hildebeast were totally on record as AGAINST gay "marriage". (wink wink, nod, nod), but amazingly, some "Republicans" still don't get it.
For Example little Jebbie Bush has been "calling out" Republicans for not piling on Trump over "Russia"!
"If your opponent does things that you, your head explodes on, if Barack Obama did something as it's related to Russia, you say 'this is outrageous,' all this stuff, then when your guy does the same thing, have the same passion to be critical," Bush said.It's hard to imagine Jebbie "calling out" anyone except maybe the "bad girls" from the glee club, but let's humor him. Back in 1776, our side took some real abuse from the Brits for not lining up in bright colored uniforms and getting mowed down in ranks. Our guys (THE HORROR!) hid behind trees and shot their officers -- bummer.
**IF** all sides -- media, "The Party" (TP-D) but I repeat myself, are playing by the SAME rules of engagement, then Bushy the younger's advice should be considered. As it is, he is cheering for R's to attack TP's Panzers with horse and lance -- heroic, sure, but effective? well, no. (see McCain and Mittens Romney).
As I've said before, since certainly the Slick Willie era (and well before in my book), we have been operating in a political system with NO RULES.
Is this a very dangerous state to be in? ABSOLUTLEY. However it is WAY more dangerous when you don't realize where you are and mount up your charger, brandish your lance, and attack the tank!
