Regarding the insufferable Never Trump crowd of Wisconsin, I just want to put this out there.
Overall, I have chosen to disregard the Never Trump people since the election. They lost. They're irrelevant. They're not worth my time. But, this needs to be addressed. Although I'm pointing out the obvious, sometimes that needs to be done.
Today, Right Wisconsin, the self-identified conservative outlet, is singing the praises of President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch.
[I]f he is confirmed Gorsuch will do more than fulfill a campaign promise by President Donald Trump. He will provide the swing vote on the court to stop a Progressive erosion of the meaning of the Constitution.
Perhaps the Democrats will drop their objections to Gorsuch when they realize that many of them failed to object to his appointment to the Appeals court. Probably not. At one time that would have been enough for the opposition party to approve such a qualified nominee. But Democratic base politics will mean Republicans will have a hard time getting the necessary Democrats to defect to end a filibuster.
We could really use Margaret Thatcher right now to caution Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that now is definitely not the time to go wobbly.
A few deep breaths first. OK.
During the election of 2016, Right Wisconsin was leading the troops against Trump, doing all they could to defeat the Republican nominee for president, which would have assured a Hillary Clinton victory.
Supreme Court be damned. It didn't matter because Trump was going to blow up the country, literally, according to a Right Wisconsin leader.
Now, Right Wisconsin has the audacity to evoke Margaret Thatcher. Right Wisconsin has the audacity to warn Mitch McConnell about going wobbly.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME???
First and foremost, Neil Gorsuch is why I voted for Donald Trump.
Wisconsin Trump voters, however reluctant, were incessantly chastised by the condescending Never Trump Wisconsin voices for our unconscionable support of this "fundamentally more repellent, dishonest figure" than Hillary Clinton. That was their stance and they never let up. They were principled. They behaved honorably.
GIVE ME A BREAK!
(Writing in caps, that's yelling.)
HELL YEAH, I'M YELLING!
The Right Wisconsin crew and allies warned potential Trump voters that Trump couldn't be trusted to nominate an originalist to the Supreme Court. WRONG!
As Trump noted in his brief address to the American people last night, he knows that Supreme Court nominees were critical in the decision process of many in the 2016 presidential election. He said, "Millions of voters said this was the single most important issue to them when they voted for me for president."
Trump delivered on his promise.
When I watched Judge Gorsuch speak last night, I kept thinking that it could have been Hillary and her radical Leftist nominee up there.
Because of a campaign strategy that worked and because of millions of people that voted like me, we have bolstered the Constitution for future generations.
Right Wisconsin and the Never Trump crowd tried to prevent that. They were willing to surrender the Supreme Court to the radical Leftists.
And they think they can lecture Republicans about going wobbly?
No, you can't, at least not without acknowledging that YOU actively sought the defeat of Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for president.
YOU can thank US for not going wobbly when it comes to principles and conservatism.
