CPAC Video Clip

The Trumpian lap dogs of course cheered the lie that Trump won. Even the WSJ openly calls out Trump's lies on the matter.

Donald Trump is Missed

If We Idolize One Person, We Lose

GOP Senator Bill Cassidy summed things with this brave comment: 'If we idolize one person, we will lose'

"If we idolize one person, we will lose," Cassidy told CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union." "And that's kind of clear from the last election."

Cassidy, a moderate, was one of seven GOP senators who joined all Senate Democrats in voting to convict Trump in his second impeachment trial, but the 57 guilty votes fell well-short of the 67 needed to convict the former President, resulting in his acquittal on the charge of inciting the January 6 insurrection.

"If we plan to win in 2022 and 2024, we have to listen to the voters. Not just those who really like President Trump, but perhaps those who are less sure," he said. "If we speak to the voters who are less sure that went from President Trump to President Biden, we win. If we don't, we lose. That is a reality that we have to confront."

I believe Cassidy nailed it, but I am a bit biased. I said the same things myself long before he did.

Flashback February 9

Here's an Impeachment Trial flashback as I saw things on February 9.  

Trump Dominance is Over

The Trump era is over. As noted Liz Cheney Marks a Welcome New Chapter in the Trump Era

Also, Senator Ben Sasse has me cheering. He delivered a scathing attack on the Nebraska GOP Central Committee.

For discussion and a must play video that went viral, please see Senator Ben Sasse Has Me Cheering. Please Listen Why.

While many Republicans want to hide behind a rock, some are willing to speak out.

And Trump's legal nightmare over tax fraud is about to begin. He pledged to "return in some way" and will, but it will be a lesser way.

All he can do now is make a mess of the party and a fool of himself if he tries a 2024 comeback.

Trump Won't Run

I highly doubt Trump will run. He couldn't take losing a second time. 

Instead, he says he "may" run and will go on saying that for years to stay in the limelight. 

"May run" will keep the media salivating for some time and that is Trump's intent. 

However, the discussion will soon turn from running for president to serious legal issues.

This post is sure to bring TDS charges from Trumpian cultists so I will respond in advance.

Not Liking Trump Does Not Mean Liking Biden

Poor Assumptions

As a Libertarian I could no longer take his tariffs, sanctions, belittling people, massive budget proposals, military spending, weapons to Saudi Arabia, and warmongering against Iran.

My complaints against Trump are about actions and policies.

I voted for him in 2016 but could not take it in 2020. 

Clowns to the Left and Right

Libertarians are disgusted with the clowns on the Left and the clowns on the Right.

I will mostly be bashing Biden for the next 4 years but perhaps he works out a deal with Iran that I will praise. I praised Trump for some things too.

It's about policy, not party, not person.
