  1. A anti Trump article in a newspaper which hates conservatives in which a conservative criticises another conservative for being too much of a democrat. Bizarre concern trolling from the NYT. It would make sense for Bush to label Trump as a right wing racist but then he would be less conservative than Trump and therefore weak.

  3. Well no, Trumps not really a conservative, but on the other hand, he could actually save conservatism while Bush will drive a stake in it.

    • Actually conserving your country, your culture, your history and heritage is conservative,
      if the word is to have any meaning at all.

      Turning America into Mexico-North is not.
      ¡Yeb! thinks that breaking into our country is “an act of love” by the invaders.

      • By conservative he aligned with the principles and positions of the Republican party. By that measure Bush is more conservative.

    • I mean official conservatism; something that Sean Hannity would recognize as conservative: Tax cuts over everything, Anti Abortion over everything…that sort of thing.

        If that’s “conservative” then it deserves to fail and die.

        The conservative – anti abortion, anti gay marriage, cut taxes on the rich, Israel, Israel, Israel!!!!, no evolution, no stem cell research, etc – world view is just an embarrassment to anyone who is intelligent without being a liberal wimpy clown.

        So Glenn Beck has decided Trump is not a conservative. Who cares! Beck is a dumb guy, with a dumb following.

      • “If that’s “conservative” then it deserves to fail and die.”

        Well good news for you then. It is. Republicans have lost the popular vote in 5 of the last 6 presidential elections. I think demographics are having more of an influence than public policy debates on taxes or national security. Every election the demographics get more difficult for Republicans and no amount of tax cuts or deregulation is going to fix that. We’re importing more and more people who think that’s ridiculous. So although that conservatism isn’t dead yet, it’s getting ready for the old age home.

      • What’s wrong with supporting Israel?

        It’s a matter of degree and worldview. Radical Christian zionist “conservatives” think “Isrul” of today is part of some old timey religious wacko view of the “End of Days”. They are kooks.

        Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish majority state is not up for debate but there is an element of powerful pro-Israel groups that are unrealistic, blindly ethnocentric and irrational. Whether Jewish, Christian or secular.

        I find them irritating, anti-American and counterproductive.

        What have Israel’s enemies ever done for the world that we would want to support them instead?

        It’s not either or. Obviously most of those “enemies” are not worthy of any support.

        BUT, certain Jews, Christian wingnuts and secular opportunists label anybody they don’t agree with as “an enemy of Israel”. It becomes a catchall insult like “racist”, or “soft on terror” or whatever.

        There are any number of positions on issues that are legitimate and criticisms of Israel that are legitimate that get labeled “anti semitic”, “enemy of Israel” etc so as to stigmatize them and shut down debate.

        Israel, abortion, black crime, gay garbage, illegal immigration etc are issues that bring out people who think they have no obligation to analyze facts and evidence and arguments and to be realistic.

        It’s just good and evil to them. They just care about self image and being part of the most righteous group versus the Evil Ones.

      • There is nothing to criticize about Israel except that they are too soft on the Palestinians. Any other country would have dealt with them much more harshly. If ISIS were running Israel, they would have beheaded all of the Palestinians, every one of them.

        Well, as you know Karl Rove and the Bush family and the RNC and Chamber of Commerce have been pushing “the browning of America” for decades.

        So called conservatives, including radio airheads like Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity are a big part of the problem. They seem to think their little niche in the media market is the same thing as America at large.

        No intelligent person should be “conservative”…or liberal. They should face reality and problems and not create nerdy litmus tests of who rightfully belongs in their little clubhouse.

  4. Bush I & II have specialized in pandering to their conservative base and then selling them out once in office. I doubt that Jeb would be any different. Both Bush administrations were disasters for the country and the GOP. No reason to believe that another one would be any different.

  5. “Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley apologized “like a disgusting, little, weak, pathetic baby” for his remark that “all lives matter,” Donald Trump said in an excerpt of a new interview aired Friday on Fox News.

    ….

    O’Malley, in fact was “politically incorrect” with his apology, Trump remarked.

    “How can you apologize when you say black lives matter — which is true — white lives matter, which is true — all lives [matter] — which is true. And then they get angry because you said white and all…we don’t want you to mention that. What’s he need to apologize for?” Trump asked.

    Glory!

  7. More proof that what permits a GOP candidate to win in primaries is what structurally then shuts them out of the general election, and vice versa.

  8. If you define “conservative” as meaning in favor of smaller government, low taxes, and all the stuff that falls within the category of “borders-language-culture,” then Trump is much more a genuine conservative than Bush is.

  12. Trump has more popularity in Mobile, Alabama, than in his hometown of NYC. Value transference parasites, trust fundy kids and NAMs don’t care much for his rhetoric.

    • Just look at the backdrop of this picture with the audience:

      A lot of oversized, southern elders and beta chumps, and NOT a peep of decent looking individuals, especially women.
