Jeb Bush endorses Cruz as a ‘consistent, principled conservative.’ This may get Trump even more votes.

Marco Rubio drops out of presidential race. OK, Rubio couldn’t carry his own state of Florida, so Rubiowe’re down to Trump, Cruz and Kasich.

Romney joins Kasich on campaign trail in bid to stop Trump. Look! Two douchebags for the price of one! The GOPe know how to make a deal.

Pat Caddell: When Trump Finds Out Kasich Voted for NAFTA, Kasich Will Lose Ohio. That should make all the UAW members in Ohio think twice about who they’ll vote for.

The 1968 Chicago Democrat National Convention – Police vs. Protesters. Look familiar? We had special snowflakes back then too, only they protested the Democrats, which in Democrat controlled Chicago is beyond bizarre.

Trump postpones Chicago rally over security concerns. Now Trump is polarizing people without even showing up. Nice to see the lovely left again refusing to let anyone with a different opinion speak.

Four Out of Five of Obama’s Supreme Court Finalists Are Obama Donors. Not massive donations but there’s one real big problem they all share – Obama wants them. Remember Senators Mitch McConnell and Chuck Grassley – NO! NO! NO! a thousand times NO! NO hearings and NO votes.

Facebook’s Zuckerberg calls on Supreme Court to let illegal immigrants work. This guy and his billionaire buddies who want cheap labor and bring in people on H1B visas who work for half-price are yet another reason we have Trump. They throw American workers under the bus every chance they get. Wait a bit and they’ll be advocating illegal aliens should be allowed to vote to ensure him and his buddies get a President who will bend over for them.

HuffPo’s Grim: 54 Private Jets at Meeting to Stop Trump. There’s a lot of butt puckering going on about Trump. Their goal is the status quo and they don’t care who gets elected at this point as long as it’s not Trump. This is another big reason for Trump’s popularity. The people are angry at their President and the do-nothing Congress. Something that still hasn’t penetrated the GOPe’s thick skulls.

Former Mexican President wants to see US and Mexico merge into one entity, not a wall. Here’s the real reason Obama is letting hordes of illegal aliens cross the border into the United States. Part of the One World Order plans. Same reason the Muslims are running rampant in Europe. The more they get regions to merge the easier to eventually take over with one supreme government. Fox should be called ex-President Pendejo. This also seems to make sense when you think about the GOPe wanting Mexican Mitt for POTUS.

THE DEMOCRATS’ FILTHY FLINT WATER. The Democrat mayor loved it, the Democrat city council voted for it, but somehow the Republicans get the blame for it.

Flint’s city council had voted in favor of the move 7-1. Despite claims about the power of the emergency manager, the switch could not have gone forward without that vote.

We saw the below Tweet and had to put it up. Moore must have OD’ed on Twinkies this morning or his account was hacked.

The GOPe has screwed the pooch. This has to be the strangest election in United States history.  Forget Hillary and Bernie, let’s focus on the Republican Party.

The GOPe have turned the 2016 election into a gigantic quagmire that’s degenerating daily. They resemble the Keystone Cops, running amok and clueless about what to do next.

We don’t’ know what GOPe leadership thinks about, but it’s obvious they’ve been pretty much wrong since at least 2008, desperation and chaos now prevail. The only thing they’ve accomplished is aiding and abetting the creation of an elephantine (pun intended) rift in the party.

The GOPe keeps trying to revisit their success of two wins with Bush 43 and they’re not having any luck. They pushed McCain in 2008 and Romney in 2012 (who both lost to Obama) and they’re now sputtering and stammering after JEB suspended his campaign and Super Tuesday’s seeming anointment of Trump by the Republican masses they refuse to acknowledge.

JEB Bush was their designated driver, the guy who was going to save the GOPe’s ass. They wasted a lot of time and over $100 million dollars until they finally slammed on the brakes in the realization JEB isn’t the golden boy.

To this we say duh! JEB comes off like Mr. Rogers and doesn’t even begin to orate like POTUS material. Moreover, there are plenty of Republicans and independent voters who feel two Bush’s in the White House were more than enough and never want to see a Bush in there again. This appears bad juju the GOPe should have been well aware of long ago but chose to ignore.

The GOPe are now terrified because they’re looking at the high probability that Donald Trump will be our next POTUS. Like Frankenstein’s Monster, they created the conditions that brought him to life and now they can’t control him.

With JEB gone the now panicked GOPe started pushing Marco Rubio as the Plan B guy who was going to save the GOP, an idea that didn’t last very long. Due to Trump’s wins on Super Tuesday it quickly materialized that Marco Rubio is not the savior guy as he only won Minnesota. Today he won Puerto Rico but that’s too little too late.

The GOPe have no choice now but Plan C. Plan C may be Ted Cruz as we see some, including Lindsay Graham, are now talking about the GOPe backing him, something they probably should have done at the very beginning instead of placing all their bets on JEB.

One website is claiming Romney has secretly registered to run in the election with Paul Ryan has his Vice President. This could be an indication that Plan C may be to run Romney again, but without further confirmation who knows? Thus far Romney maintains he’s not running.

While a successful businessman in his own right, Romney doesn’t garner much political respect in many circles after losing the 2012 election.  He puked out and wouldn’t get agressive. He apparently figured he’d get elected because he’s such a nice guy something – something. Then he about disappeared off the map before the election, handing the win to Obama.

Now it’s 2016 Mitt has seemingly found his political balls. So what does he do when he finds them? He attacks Trump, calls him all sorts of things, alleges his income tax returns may have problems and gives a left-handed endorsement of Cruz and Rubio and even (gasp!) Kasich. AKA the new GOPe chant of ‘anybody but Trump!’

His speech is seen by many and us (Trump fans or not) as sour grapes and one can smell the GOPe’s desperation. The result is the speech has only served to further alienate Trump fans and others and has probably increased Trump’s popularity. Violating Reagan’s 11th Commandment can obviously have painful consequences.

The GOPe may still have a very short window to throw everything including the kitchen sink into a Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio campaign and beat Trump fair and square (in a sleazy kind of political way). Again, we don’t think Marco can pull it off with the voters as he’s too far behind on delegates. Cruz at 300 delegates, is not that far behind Trump’s 384 and there’s that thing called time.

If they can’t get Cruz in with the voters it appears their only choice is to have a brokered convention and attempt to knock Trump out of the ballpark by getting Cruz or Rubio in. The longshot would be they somehow gerrymander Romney in, if he runs. If they do knock Trump out, we expect he will burn the pledge he signed and run 3rd party taking a lot of votes with him.

Regardless who ends up being the candidate, the GOPe will have problems. They’ve created a situation where no one seems willing to vote for anyone but their own guy and if their guy isn’t the GOP candidate they’ll either stay home or write in their guy’s name, probably resulting in Hillary as POTUS. They also need to come to the realization that just about the entire Republican Party has little or no respect for them and start grovelling for forgiveness.

If they’re going to go after Trump, the Romney-type speeches and specious attack ads aren’t going to make it. We all see that every time someone disses Trump it turns into a positive for him. They need to stop slinging mud at Trump and start putting out positives about their Plan C candidate, not to mention throwing every dollar they can into the election of their Plan C guy. If they can’t unite enough people then the Republican Party could end up going extinct. Or perhaps they should back Trump and bet he’ll be better than Hillary.

Like President Abraham Lincoln said “A house divided cannot stand,” which is paramount advice to the entire GOP in this election year.

Mitt Romney Recently Filed Papers with the FEC to Run for President. Files on January 31,, 2016 names Paul Ryan as Vice President running mate. Interesting considering Mitt maintains he’s not running. This certainly adds to everyone’s suspicions the GOP will try and run a brokered convention. We wonder if Karl Rove is behind this?

Cruz wins Kansas in GOP battle for delegates. 50.9% to 24.4% as of now, Rubbio 14%, Kasich 8.7%. Per Fox News, Maine is now 48.0% Cruz to 35.0% for Trump but no one’s called it yet, Rubio’s at 8.6% and Kasich at 8.7%. (Note these are not the final figures and could change).

Open Warfare: Romney calls Trump ‘a phony, a fraud’; Trump calls Romney ‘failed candidate.’ Way to go GOP and Romney! Let’s give Hillary plenty of ad content for the election if Trump runs. We have little doubt we’re witnessing the end of the Republican Party. They’re committing suicide by stupidity. The Democrats must be rolling on the floor laughing at this whiny speech.

The Super Tuesday election results are in. Trump didn’t take them all. Should Kasich and Carson should quit embarrassing themselves and drop out? Or are they perhaps being told to stay in by the GOPe in an effort to ensure Trump doesn’t get enough delegates so they can have a brokered convention?
