With friends like Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) what GOP President needs enemies?
After 8 years of horrible Obama/Democrat policies and no internecine battles on the leftist side of the aisle, you’d think the GOP could get through one year of the Trump era without shooting itself in the foot. But they can’t. The GOP just isn’t programmed to win. They’re programmed to force a stalemate with the left so that the country shifts slowly to the left, but never moves back to the right.
If the GOP were programmed to win, Obamacare would be history, our taxes would be lower, regulations would be cut, life would be valued, and our rights would remain secure. Sadly, even with a big majority in the House, a slim majority in the Senate, a GOP president, domination of state legislatures and Governor’s mansions… the GOP still can’t get out of its own way.
Case in point? Bob Corker from Tennessee.
Corker has always been a moderate Republican, but his recent attacks on the President have exposed the truth about GOP moderates – they’re vicious.
It’s why conservative legislation never moves forward. These moderates smile and praise conservative values, and then they ruthlessly kill conservative legislation while claiming it’s all for the “greater good.”
It’s not just Corker – look at McCain, Murkowski, Collins, Graham, and every other GOP moderate who seems to take sick pleasure in voting against conservative legislation while voting to support leftist ideas and programs.
Now, Corker (and many other GOP moderates) are calling it quits, and they’ve turned their nasty attention to the President himself.
Corker has long been at odds with President Trump but his most recent comments are completely unhinged. Here’s what he said:
I think we’ll be fine. I do worry that these — Sometimes I feel like he’s on a reality show of some kind, you know, when he’s talking about these big foreign policy issues. And, you know, he doesn’t realize that, you know, that we could be heading towards World War III with the kinds of comments that he’s making.
Trump, who has fought back against Corker in recent days, had a more subdued response to the Senator’s latest criticism.
When asked if Corker was right, and that he (Trump) was putting us on a “path to World War III,” the President pulled “an Obama” and blamed his predecessor.
We were on the wrong path before. All you have to do is take a look. If you look over the last 25 years through numerous administrations, we were on a path to a very big problem, a problem like this world has never seen. We’re on the right path right now, believe me.
Oddly enough, when the President made this comment he was sitting next to the most important foreign policy mind of the last century – Dr. Henry Kissinger.
Kissinger did not seem to agree with Corker about the President’s leadership saying, “It’s always a great honor to be in this office, and I’m here at a moment when the opportunity to build a constructive, peaceful world order is very great.
And the President is leaving on a trip to Asia, which I think will make a big contribution to progress and peace and prosperity.”
Let’s hope Kissinger is right, and Corker is wrong.
