Conservs that are working as hard as the Dems to get Trump out of office this November….but to what end?
Remember the old saying….”Beware of Greeks Bearing gifts”……
I wrote a warning to the Dems about embracing the “Never Trumpers”…….Please read my thoughts first…….https://lobotero.com/2020/08/05/the-lincoln-project-after-the-fall/
Now the American Conservative (who would have thought that I of all people would be using a conservative site as a tool?)
TAC is warning that the Neocons that are part of the “Never Trump” movement should not be trusted…..
Never-Trumper Republicans have been worming their way into the Biden campaign, offering to flesh out his “coalition” ahead of the election and pushing their way into the foreign policy discussions, particularly on China. Given their shared history with the liberal interventionists already in the campaign, don’t for a second think that there aren’t hungry neoconservatives among them trying to get a seat at the table.
“Some hawkish Democrats may see the neocons as convenient allies in preserving an outdated interventionist mindset,” offers Matt Duss, who is Sen. Bernie Sanders’ longtime foreign policy advisor and maintains close ties with the Democratic campaign to replace President Trump. “And of course neocons are desperate for any opportunity to salvage their own relevance.”
To those who oppose Trump and support his Democratic opponent, The Lincoln Project’s frontal assault on the president, along with the mainstream headline-grabbing Republican Voters Against Trump PAC, are manna from heaven. But to those of us who were called “unpatriotic conservatives” for failing to goose step with the neoconservatives dominating Washington before the Iraq War—many of whom are soaring around this never-never land right now—this may be a warning from below.
Duss was responding to a Daily Beast report last week which quoted unnamed “individuals who work for conservative think tanks in Washington” who have acknowledged “informally speaking with members of the Biden team in recent weeks.” The focus appears to be on the failing China trade deal and Trump’s supposed weak posture. Reportedly, they are “so frustrated with the U.S-China trade deal and the administration’s efforts to hold Beijing accountable that they are willing to offer counsel to the Democratic nominee.”
Dems have been warned….but are they listening….or is their haste to replace Trump making them more stupid than normal?
My thought it is the later.
This movement, in my opinion, is true conservs that do not see a future in the GOP….they need to work to rid themselves of all those that enabled Trump or their work will be for naught.
