Skip to comments.Trump Should Widen — Not Heal — Breech Within GOP

But the fact is that the attacks by Romney and others not only do not harm Trumps chances of winning. They enhance them. Rather than seek to heal the split, he should try to widen it. A political leader is particularly credible when he speaks ill of members of his own party, particularly after the primary season has ended. While we treat as boiler plate criticism of Democrats by Republicans and vice versa, we take seriously derogatory comments about members of ones own party (hence the medias interest in intraparty criticism of Trump). If Trump can criticize the Romney wing of the party as elitist, out of touch, pro-Wall Street, and insensitive to the problems of the average American, he can make empathetic common cause with millions of Independent and Democratic voters who have rejected the GOP for precisely these reasons.

Remember when Cruz’ filibuster was going to splinter the party and DESTROY their chances a few years ago?
Well, not that it really did us any good, but we had a landslide.
People aren’t worried over “Fractured” parties.
Just the guy who’s running.
“Rather than seek to heal the split, he should try to widen it.”
Bingo. The last thing we need is Ryan, McConnell (and Cruz) acting as Trump surrogates. Everyone hates them.
This is scary. I agree with Dick Morris. Dick Morris is always wrong.
Trump can run against 0bama, Romney AND Hillary. Win / Win / Win!
Listen, and understand. The left-scum are out there. They cant be bargained with. They cant be reasoned with. They dont feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And they absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.
Well Dick, you’re on the payroll now- out with the strategical advice. Dump Paul Ryan now?
I think he has a point. There shouldn’t even be a “Romney Wing” of the GOP.
Might as well have a Hillary Wing and an 0bama Wing of the GOP.
Mortis is right: Triangulate.
Dick’s right. Psychotic, but absolutely right.
If it means breaking off that parasitical, useless layer of well-fed fools who have been leeching off the public as our “leaders” for so long, then hell yes he ought to widen it. He ought to saw off the entire Beltway and set it adrift in the arctic and let the starving polar bears take care of it for us. And I consider myself a moderate on the issue.
I believe it was Dick Morris who invented, and/or named, Political Triangulation.
Every time I see the name Dick Morris or see him on Fox I think “Toe sucking prostitute, $400 hotel.” From then on I just can’t take seriously anything he says.
Yeah, me too.
But I still have a longing for trials and hangings on the Capitol steps.
This is either the first time that I’ve agreed with Morris, or the second.
You know what they say about blind squirrels.
Trump should not take advice from Dick Morris.
