The call to get teachers back into schools has been more insidious than earlier Republican calls to re-open the economy even though it meant loss of life, especially because teachers are in fact working and teaching, often harder and longer hours than ever.
George Will has said he’ll vote for Joe Biden in November. The well-known conservative columnist also believes the presumptive Democratic nominee will win.
This will be the first time Will has ever voted for a Democratic presidential candidate, as his pro-Republican credentials will show. He’s the latest high-profile conservative to opt for Biden.
“I’m a big believer in parties, in party strength and party tickets. Not this year,” Will said on Monday.
In our @AspenInstitute conversation this afternoon, @GeorgeWill (never a fan of President Trump) told me he'll vote for @JoeBiden in November–the first time he's voted for a Democrat for any office. (His first presidential vote: Barry Goldwater.) https://t.co/rQ3xZVobrv
According to Fox News, the list of conservative Republicans who now say they will be voting for Democrats in this year’s midterm elections is getting longer, but they are clueless as to why this is happening.
In an article called “Divorcing Trump: Why some conservatives are now pushing Democrats (!)“ Howard Kurtz explores this puzzling phenomenon in depth as he attempts to come up with explanations.
Well, it’s actually not puzzling to most Americans, but it is certainly something that is not understood by the viewers of Fox News.
Kurtz does a good job of listing the very prominent (former) conservative Republicans who have become so disgusted by Donald Trump and his cult-like followers that they have now proclaimed their support of Democratic candidates.
The list includes:
All of these people are not only very prominent but also very visible in the media, denouncing Trump and his policies.
What’s interesting about the Fox News analysis is that it completely misses the point as to why these people are now rooting for Democrats to win. They understand something that Fox hopes people won’t recognize: that Donald Trump and his followers are
a threat to democracy
“Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets. We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”
"Trump exposes the GOP as America’s institution of bigotry, dishonesty, ignorance, warmongering and cruelty against the vulnerable and powerless."
The Koch brothers are executing a well-planned assault on the Pope by portraying him as a Pagan and his followers as un-American
Bruce Bartlett says policies don't matter for the GOP, only attitude. "And Trump has exactly the right 'chip on your shoulder' attitude"
Seems like every time you turn around these days there's another crazy Republican uncle doing and saying the kind of things crazy Republican uncles do.
Most of what passes for newspapers these days are embarrassingly partisan rags and feature, above all else, totally irresponsible right-wing opinion detritus hardly worth a second glance. U.S. dailies are little more than Republican propaganda sheets.
George Will attacks college campuses for rape prevention efforts, mocking them as political correctness gone too far.
There is no place better for conservatives to wrap themselves up in self-denial and make up stuff than Fox News Sunday. Discussions around climate change are no exception.
Proving that all he can see in Obama is his skin color, George Will had decided that the only reason Americans aren't firing Obama is because he's black.
