In his latest New York Times op-ed entitled "The Democrats Win the Summer," David Brooks blames Donald Trump for allowing the Democrats to conduct a more successful presidential convention. Brooks writes:
"Trump has abandoned the Judeo-Christian aspirations that have always represented America’s highest moral ideals: toward love, charity, humility, goodness, faith, temperance and gentleness."
Oh really? The American electorate is stupid enough to believe that the Clintons and their money sucking foundation embody "love, charity, humility, goodness, faith, temperance and gentleness"? Well, maybe love, as exemplified by Bill's incessant travel aboard the "Lolita Express." (We have yet to learn with whom Hillary has been sexually intimate in recent years - if anyone at all. Maybe if Donald discloses his tax returns, Hillary will tell us with whom she has been sleeping?)
"He left the ground open for Barack Obama to remind us that our founders wanted active engaged citizens, not a government run by a solipsistic and self-appointed savior who wants everything his way."
Whoa! Obama is not "a solipsistic and self-appointed savior who wants everything his way"? Obama went ahead with his unsigned nuclear deal with Iran despite overwhelming public disapproval. Same for Obamacare, although not by the same margins.
Brooks goes on to say:
"I almost don’t blame Trump. He is a morally untethered, spiritually vacuous man who appears haunted by multiple personality disorders. It is the 'sane' and 'reasonable' Republicans who deserve the shame — the ones who stood silently by, or worse, while Donald Trump gave away their party’s sacred inheritance."
Blame the Republicans for nominating Trump, and not blame the Democrats for nominating Hillary, the less dangerous of the two, but who is still a self-serving venomous reptile? Spare me.
