  • Is America ready for President Graham?

    Jewish World review ^ | April 26, 2015 | George Will
    In 1994, Lindsey Graham, then a 39-year-old South Carolina legislator, ran for Congress in a district that he said had not elected a Republican since Union guns made it do so during Reconstruction. He promised that in Washington he would be "one less vote for an agenda that makes you want to throw up." He was elected to the Senate in 2002 and soon almost certainly will join the Republican presidential scramble, enlivening it with his quick intelligence, policy fluency, mordant wit and provocative agenda. He has the normal senatorial tendency to see a president in the mirror and an...

    Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee for president. As harrowing a prospect as that might be for some of us, the reality is that Trump can't be stopped. He needs a mere 43% of the remaining delegates up for grabs to get to 1237 and a first ballot victory. Given that he is far ahead in California, a state that awards the winner of their primary all 170 of its delegates, The Golden State will almost certainly put Trump over the top if he wins there. So what is George Will talking about here? Will penned a column with...

    Donald Trumps damage to the Republican Party, although already extensive, has barely begun. Republican quislings will multiply, slinking into support of the most anti-conservative presidential aspirant in their partys history. These collaborationists will render themselves ineligible to participate in the partys reconstruction. Ted Cruzs announcement of his preferred running mate has enhanced the nomination process by giving voters pertinent information. They already know the only important thing about Trumps choice: His running mate will be unqualified for high office because he or she will think Trump is qualified. Hillary Clintons optimal running mate might be Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio,...

    On this weekends broadcast of Fox News Sunday, Washington Post columnist George Will questioned Republican presidential candidate Donald Trumps pro-life stance. Will said, Well, theres a policy dimension and a process dimension to running for president. On the policy side, on abortion, he was asked a question that every novice Republican candidate knows hes going to be asked. And he didnt have an answer. Now, thats partly because hes only been pro-life for about 15 minutes.

    In his latest column, George Will charges that Senate Republicans have had an incoherent response to the Supreme Court vacancy that is a partisan reflex in search of a justifying principle. But its Wills attack on Senate Republicans that lacks coherence: 1. Will purports to present five reasons that Senate Republicans have provided for their determination to keep the vacancy open until after the election. But his presentation of those supposed reasons isnt at all fair. For starters, Will entirely omits what I understand to be the predominant reason: that filling the Scalia vacancy with an Obama pick would drive...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) told CNN’s Dana Bash today that the Senate would not confirm Judge Merrick Garland, who was nominated by President Obama earlier this week, in the lame duck session. Senate Republicans have been adamant that the next president, whoever that may be, should decide this nomination. This has drawn the ire of Democrats who feel that Republicans are skirting their constitutional obligation to advise and consent on judicial nominations, despite the fact that the Constitution doesn’t say the Senate must consider a nominee upon recommendation by the president. Yes, Senate Republicans can sit on their...

For example, last week, during a long stream of semi-consciousness in Fort Worth, this man who as president would nominate members of the federal judiciary vowed to open up libel laws to make it easier to sue to intimidate and punish people who write negative things.

Ted Cruz (R-TX) , an establishment bugaboo. The establishment’s favorite candidate, Senator Sen.

    Levin might cry and whine about Trump's tactics but here's the thing, there are no rules in politics. The only rule is winning. Trump is making that clear this cycle by breaking all the rules and winning so far. If Cruz can't beat Trump, he doesn't deserve to be the nominee. Hillary and the democrats would use the same "tactics" and more to pulverize him. This is what primaries are about. They are tests for the strongest nominee. They make the eventual nominee stronger. Cry baby whining about Trump does not make Cruz stronger. It's what losers do when they...

    What boxer Sonny Liston's manager said of him (Sonny had his good points, the trouble was his bad points) is true of Marco Rubio. His strengths include intelligence, articulateness and, usually, cheerfulness. His misjudgments involve, in ascending order of importance, the Senate immigration bill of 2013, sugar, Libya and S-590. Together these reveal a recurring penchant for ill-considered undertakings. Rubio's retreat, under withering political heat, from the immigration bill was undignified but not reprehensible. The bill had 1,197 pages because the 906-page Affordable Care Act had not slaked the congressional appetite for "comprehensive" solutions to complex problems. The immigration bill...

Mr. Will tells us that Trump will destroy conservatism -- which doesn't seem likely, because about a third of Americans strongly and consistently lean right. George Will also calls Trump "insecure," "needy" and does "compulsive boasting." George Will has discovered “insecure boasting” after two terms of Obama, the most insecure, self-promoting, pro-jihad, anti-American president in history. Every time Obama attacks this country he is also boasting about his own superior wisdom and morality. Obama is a true narcissist, Trump is a humorous boaster -- it's part...

    Will doesn't like Trump. I saw where he was Pumping Scott Walker up, then I found out his wife works as a consultant for Walker. Will never states this conflict of interest as he should in disclosure. I find this a breach of ethics and professionalism. Fox is getting known for lack of objectivity. Karl Rove is a Bush insider so is Perino. Univision has Ramos who's daughter works for Hillary going after Trump the leading Republican and he doesn't disclose this either. These news sources are just paid henchmen propagandists without any principles.

    Donald Trump, White House hopeful and Republican leader of the pack for president, said in a telephone interview on Fridays edition of Morning Joe on MSNBC that his success with poll numbers shows the country is going through a massive change, the magnitude of which some say has never before been seen. He made the remarks in answer to a question from one of the panelists who spoke of Trumps unpopularity with many of the so-called establishment Republicans, like pundits George Will and Charles Krauthammer, and whether he could win the nomination without such support. And Trumps response? First, he...

    Every sulfurous belch from the molten interior of the volcanic Trump phenomenon injures the chances of a Republican presidency. After Donald Trump finishes plastering a snarling face on conservatism, any Republican nominee will face a dauntingly steep climb to reach even the paltry numbers that doomed Mitt Romney.

    Every sulfurous belch from the molten interior of the volcanic Trump phenomenon injures the chances of a Republican presidency. After Donald Trump finishes plastering a snarling face on conservatism, any Republican nominee will face a dauntingly steep climb to reach even the paltry numbers that doomed Mitt Romney. It is perhaps quixotic to try to distract Trumps supporters with facts, which their leader, who is no stickler for dignity, considers beneath him. Still, consider these: The white percentage of the electorate has been shrinking for decades and will be about two points smaller in 2016 than in 2012. In 2008,...

    WASHINGTON -- Every sulfurous belch from the molten interior of the volcanic Trump phenomenon injures the chances of a Republican presidency. After Donald Trump finishes plastering a snarling face on conservatism, any Republican nominee will face a dauntingly steep climb to reach even the paltry numbers that doomed Mitt Romney.

  • George Will: Guardian of The GOP Establishment

    It is difficult to determine wither George Will has remained within the confines of the GOP Establishment for so long that he actually believes what he writes, or if hes so steeped in conceit and self-absorption that hes convinced he can alter reality by the sheer power of his baseless assertions. In either case, it is glaringly apparent that he and his kind have completely lost touch with the nation that surrounds them. And in the face of a Tsunami of grassroots rejection of the D.C status quo (as epitomized by the meteoric political rise of Donald Trump), they flail...
  • Conservatives provide a reality check on Donald Trump's mass deportation plan

    Ever since Donald Trump, the mercurial businessman, media personality, and presidential candidate, proposed his immigration policy, centering on the mass deportation of up to 11 million human beings, reaction among conservatives has been decidedly mixed. Ann Coulter, for whom illegal immigration is the alpha and the omega of public policy, exalted that Trump could perform abortions in the White House, and she would not care. But Charles Krauthammer, writing in the National Review on Thursday, and George Will, in his latest column published Saturday, provided reality checks. Krauthammer wondered what the practical political effects would be of reenacting the Trail...
  • George Will: Trumps immigration plan could spell doom for the GOP

    It has come to this: The GOP, formerly the party of Lincoln and ostensibly the party of liberty and limited government, is being defined by clamors for a mass roundup and deportation of millions of human beings. To will an end is to will the means for the end, so the Republican clamors are also for the requisite expansion of governments size and coercive powers. Most of Donald Trumps normally loquacious rivals are swaggeringly eager to confront Vladimir Putin but are too invertebrate Lindsey Graham is an honorable exception to voice robust disgust with Trump and the spirit...

    When Donald Trump first burst on the political scene two months ago as a presidential candidate, many of the analysts, commentators and pollsters who populate cable news programs, the so called experts, claimed it was all a publicity stunt. Then, they said he would never release his financial statements. Then, they said his controversial comments about Mexican illegal immigration, Senator John McCain and Fox News Host Megyn Kelly would doom his campaign. Now, they are saying his lead cannot continue for his support has a ceiling and his campaign is a flash in the pan. Unfortunately for the experts, they...
