Politico: Miscalculation by Insiders

  Everyone is writing stories on the supposed intrigued surrounding the presumed nomination of Donald Trump as the GOP Presidential candidate.  Around no one is the chatter greater than around Speaker Paul Ryan, who is now the guardian of the flame for the establishment GOP.
       The rapid clinching of the nomination by Mr. Trump in the last three weeks was a surprise for party officials who had thought it would all come down to a contested convention.
       Among the political class there was little belief the great unwashed could select someone as coarse and inexperienced as Donald Trump.
       The miscalculation was that voters would embrace Ted Cruz on the notion its better to lose with Cruz than risk down ballot races. Voters tired of Washington's ways didn't agree. In fact both Trump and Cruz were running anti-DC campaigns.
       It's only been a couple days since the upheaval, but it does look like a Mexican standoff between the standard bearer and those content to reboot for 2020.

Don't be too hard on the GOP establishment. We know the founder of Firefox had to resign from his own company because he donated to the traditional marriage cause a decade ago. And the same thing will happen to Trump supporters, at least at first. They will be rounded up and eliminated in the coming totalitarian regime, at least until the Trump supporters begin to win the revolution.

The party at all cost type people are the ones that actually produced the Donald. Their refusal to listen to the general population and hang onto their ideology and refusal to govern created the scenario we have now.

When will they learn they can't dig Reagan up and run him again and this is a different era and people have different ideas. The GOP is far from a nimble party and I am a local GOP. But people have to think for themselves and there was not only one candidate who could and that ended up Trump.

Whinners are not going to support Trump.. The Bush family,HW and W are not going to support Trump.. These two alone set this country back decades with their involvment in their corruption . How can we ever forget the failed Contra, and Desert Storm along with a failed assassanation attempt of Regan.. W we can remember Iraq and Afghanastan and of course 911 and all of their victims.
Romeny will all of his hidden millions and his corruption in Massachusets and of course the blueprints for Obama care.
Ryan of course is an American hero who was going to be our knight in shining armour. He showed his true colors yesterday in thinking of only his run..
McCain the American Hero who got caught and wa s held. Has done nothing for this country let alone his party for years.
It all boils down to what can you do for me.. If you cant and in Trumps case you wont cave in to the money then they will disown you..
The career politicans and insiders have ruled this country for so long they know no other way..
Personally I am afraid something will happen to Donald.. Heart attack, suicide airplane crash are the most common ways our elite have things done but in hard cases like Trump and Jack and Robert Kennedy outright murder is the way of the rich and famous elite who rule this country and its politicans.

7:43 You did not include foreign countries in your conspiracy theories, Russia, Mexico, the Drug Cartel, all the illegals, the Muslims, the Black Panthers Arm of the Black Lives Matter crowd. Even the founder of Facebook and Gates have an ax to grind because Trump is not employing enough of the special visa workers, they want more more more to destroy the middle class.

Late to the party as usual.
