Posted on 05/11/2016 5:10:30 PM PDT by Cyberman
The best hope for what's left of a serious conservative movement in America is the election in November of a Democratic president, held in check by a Republican Congress. Conservatives can survive liberal administrations, especially those whose predictable failures lead to healthy restorations--think Carter, then Reagan. What isn't survivable is a Republican president who is part Know Nothing, part Smoot-Hawley and part John Birch. The stain of a Trump administration would cripple the conservative cause for a generation....
For conservatives, a Democratic victory in November means the loss of another election, with all the policy reversals that entails. That may be dispiriting, but elections will come again. A Trump presidency means losing the Republican Party. Conservatives need to accept that most conservative of wisdoms--sometimes, losing is winning, especially when it offers an education in the importance of political hygiene.

Gee, the author seems to be unconcerned about the Supreme Court. Fool.
cuz we've been doing so well so far...
GREAT LINE: The Farce is strong with this one....
To the modern conservative, and for the last 24 years, losing has been considered winning.
“Losing is winning”
ThT has been the GOP motto for Way too long.
I didn't used to think this way but now I think that ANYONE who goes into politics is a lunatic.
The WSJ has lost its collective mind!
Really strong stuff the author is imbibing....
Bret thinks losing is winning. How F’ed up is that?
He’s got a point. The Republicans will fight tooth and nail against a liberal president, just as they have with Obama. It’s been so beautiful to watch Obamacare defeated, gay marriage denied, illegal immigration stopped dead in it’s tracks, the marginalization of Islam . . . the victories just go on and on.
Yeah, that's working SO well with Barry. WTFFFFFF?!?!?!
That happened when Newt was forced out of the Speaker's chair because he actually did what conservatives always say that they want to do. No GOP leader in the White House or either branch of Congress has been willing to stand for conservative principles since.
If Trump does what he says he will do, he will pull out a renewed GOP like a phoenix from the ashes of the post-Reagan era. Hillary will simply pee on the ashes and put them out forever.
No, the Wall Street Journal is a mouthpiece of The Cheap Labor Express.
They simply cannot allow Americans to elect a President who enforces the laws and borders.
The people pipeline is paramount.
Everyone! Give yourself a treat and watch Lou Dobbs on Fox Business News 7:00PM Monday-Friday. Tonight will re replayed at 11:00 Pm.
He went all out on Ryan. It was music to our ears. A must see!
This is such crap. These people almost destroyed this country. Name a single element of Trump’s campaign that is NOT conservative? These “one world”, globalist, anti sovereignty sell outs can’t pour piss out of a boot!
This has got to be one of the biggest wet dreams I’ve read from the Washington Compost.
