Unprincipled

Now that Donald Trump, with a little help from Marco Rubio, has seriously undermined the reputation of Ted Cruz, he’s going after Rubio. The first line of attack–that somehow Marco isn’t eligible to run for president, either! Trump obviously will do or say anything to get the nomination. I’m still waiting for his threatened lawsuit against Cruz. His willingness to play nasty makes Cruz’s sharp elbows look genteel by comparison. To say that Trump is unprincipled is like saying Hillary is a liar. Tell us something we don’t know.

Think of the all-star lineup of conservative governors, senators, and others we had for the nomination, who one by one are falling by the wayside thanks to The Donald. We seem to be throwing away this once-in-a-generation chance to do something we’ve talked about for years–electing a real conservative. Apparently we’d rather slobber over a vulgar and mercurial reality-TV star than elect a principled conservative. If conservatives support Trump over Cruz or Rubio, then we will have nothing to say once Trump takes over, because we will be known as sell-outs.
