Reminder – The 2016 Trump Conservative Critics Were 2009 Obama Fan Boys…

By now almost everyone has acknowledged that Donald Trump ripped the masks from most of the modern professional punditry who espoused to be conservative yet showed their hidden ideological colors as elite globalists.

Most notably evidenced in June ’15 as millions of Fox News viewers saw the entire line-up of professional pundits proclaim: borders shouldn’t matter; border walls won’t work; illegal alien amnesty was the only viable solution to decades of unenforced immigration law; ObamaCare is not really all that bad, and the federal government doesn’t really need a budget.

Heck, to think, this was only in week #1 of Donald Trump’s campaign.

Since June ’15, on almost every issue those same pundits have now openly aligned themselves with GOPe agenda items like global trade, tax policy, big government spending, and advocacy to including advancement of Speaker Paul ‘Omnibus’ Ryan.

However, as sharp reader DrudgeAddict smartly pointed out last year, these voices were the exact group who gathered together in an exclusive meeting with President Obama in 2009 to sing his praises after the ’08 election. Including :

  • George Will
  • Michael Barone
  • David Brooks
  • Charles Krauthammer
  • Bill Kristol
  • Lawrence Kudlow
  • Rich Lowry
  • Peggy Noonan

All in attendance for a dinner meeting with president Obama before he took office.   The post-meeting/dinner report in The New Yorker Magazine holds the following quotes told by the glowing participants of their time with President Obama:

Richard Lowry:“the only presidential candidate from either party about whom there is a palpable excitement”.

Charles Krauthammer: “Obama would be a president with the political intelligence of a Bill Clinton harnessed to the steely self-discipline of a Vladimir Putin”, who would “bestride the political stage as largely as did Reagan.”

Bill Kristol:“I look forward to Obama’s inauguration with a surprising degree of hope and good cheer.”

Larry Kudlow: “[Obama] loves to deal with both sides of the issue.” “He revels in the back and forth. And he wants to keep the dialogue going with conservatives.”

Indeed, it sounds like a joyful political love-fest amid the smitten beltway punditry in 2009.

So is it really a surprise to read or hear their current, and collective, opinion of the horribly unwashed pro-America vulgarian Trump?

Let’s review. Starting with the pundit who coined the term “vulgarian”, George Will:

George Will 2015: Donald Trump Supporters Need To Come Into The Republican Party On Our Terms, Not Theirs” (link with video)

Rich Lowry 2015:Look Trump attacks everyone but she’s become a much bigger target. And I think part of what’s going on here is that last debate. Let’s be honest, Carly cut his balls off with the precision of a surgeon. (link with video)

Charles Krauthammer 2015: …”[…] And the pity is this: this is the strongest field of Republican candidates in 35 years. You could pick a dozen of them at random and have the strongest cabinet America has had in our lifetime, and instead, all of our time is spent discussing this rodeo clown.” (link)

Bill Kristol 2015: […] “I doubt I’d support Donald. I doubt I’d support the Democrat. I think I’d support getting someone good on the ballot as a third party candidate.” (link)

( Via Instapundit ) AUGUST 2015 […] GOP establishment is trying so hard to discredit Trump that they don’t seem to realize that they are angering a large portion of their own constituency, which is hungering for leadership and a willingness to openly defy P.C. norms. To paraphrase Hamlet, me thinks they dost protest too much, and it is beginning to backfire on them and cause them to take openly hypocritical positions.

Indeed, they are now taking the position that deporting illegal immigrants is wrong. Oh, how the establishment loves to talk tough on immigration when it suits its purposes of ginning up conservatives on election day. But when a candidate comes along who actually wants to do something about the issue–and isn’t afraid to defy political correctness to do so–the GOP establishment suddenly cries foul, and brands him a fool, dictator, or police state zealot. The necessary implication is that the GOP establishment is all hat, no cattle on immigration.

No wonder increasing numbers of those who self-identify as Republican now openly abhor the party, and it totters on the brink of implosion. (link)

    It amazes me how many people know the GOP is a bunch of pukes but still think they are conservative pukes. If Trump does 1/10th of what he is trying to do he will be the most conservative president in history.

      I don’t think so. These backstabbing GOPe don the ‘conservative’ cloak every election cycle and once elected\reelected they go back to DC and vote for the socialists dems agenda cause that is what their masters who have bought their vote and soul tell them to do.
      My eyes began to open during W’s first term when the republicans had both chambers and the WH and still nothing was done or even attempted to be done to keep their campaign promises, except for a BRIEF tax reduction. This election cycle with cites like CTH and Gateway and now that I have finally began to look at Alex Jones I will never go back to live on the globalist plantation and settle for those sweet little lies. These people hate America, it’s citizens, the constitution, small businesses and want the middle class to die.
      Yes Trump will be even more conservative than Reagan. He is a common sense conservative and lives it unlike the bought and paid for traitors who only give lip service to conservative issues.

        The 3 most derelict (non-conservative) actions by GWB

        1.) The failure to immediately, and permanently, secure our borders after 911….To have allowed it to even be a possibility, that a future invasion by a perilous mass of undocumented aliens could occur, speaks for itself, The globalist proponent, that is the Bush Dynasty, needs no more testimonial.

        2.) The inability to engage the war on Saddam in a responsibly timely manner….What did Bush think, that a succeeding radical leftist presidential wouldn’t skewer his investment of public treasure, and in retrospect, the becoming ever more indefensible loss of our brave military warriors. Procrastination for no end….great, loyal coalition?…when the going got tough, did it hold up…better to have gone alone and immediately…A politically weak president.

        3.) While having made an attempt (unsuccessful) to stop the housing mortgage crisis by reversing the existing insidious banking legislation, Bush failed to competently herald the pending catastrophe that would greatly contribute to an Obama presidency and the breathtakingly onerous legislation ie: The Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer protection Act….The money flow went on steroids.

        Trump has done our country a monumental service by eliminating the Bush -in-Waiting…Open Borders and Common Core would be the final nails.

    Well, well, well. Billy Kristol, our quintessential conservative Republican role model caught with his mouth open! This whole slimy group, Kristol, Will, Kudlow et al are betraying the Republican Party. It’s disgusting. If HRC is elected, they will be in the front row of whiners, wringing hands for the fate of the Republic. After those fawning words they uttered about BO in 2009, the whole sorry lot need to re-examine their collective ability to foresee who makes a good President.

    If Donald Trump loses, their actions and words helped bring about his defeat. This is the brain trust that brought us Bob Dole, John McCain, and Mitt Romney as Republican candidates. Thanks fellas!

    As a small gesture, am cancelling my subscription to “The Weekly Standard” as a protest against Billy Kristol’s betrayal of the Republican Party.

      I think we should shun all of these faux conservatives and pledge breakers. If they show up on a t v or radio program, switch channels and let the program sponsors know why you will no longer be watching these faux conservatives and if they keep showing up on the programs we will no longer watch\listen to the programs.
      Maybe by the next election cycle most will no longer be on the air or in print.

  8. At the party convention, Trump needs to put up a giant white board with true conservative points, and then another board that shows the terms open borders, runaway trade deficits, and globalist entanglements, each with a giant red ‘x’ through them.

    He really needs to shut these guys up, once and for all, and do it while the camera is on.

    Jews are less than 2% of the population and 70% of Jews vote Democrat. If that remaining 30% vote Republican, that means a maximum of .6% of the u.s. population or roughly 1.2% of Republicans are Jews. Given that all Jews who are Republicans not neo-cons, I think Bill Kristol overestimates his ability to swing the election.

    Granted, I have no way of estimating the non-jew neocons who may walk, but if you’re concerned about people like Krystol, Krauthammer, Brooks, Rubin, Charen, Etc., don’t be. Their numbers are insignificant.

    Not a single one of these people is conservative, because conservatives believe in individual responsibility.

    And not one of these people has admitted their culpability in the bait-and-switch scheme they’ve been perpetrating on the electorate for the last 30 years, promising “conservative programs” while delivering the left-wing agenda.

    Well, let me try to succinctly summarize the feelings of the majority of Trump supporters.

    We’ll take a wall on the border, a stop to Muslim immigration, reduced taxes to get the economy moving, and a repeal/replacement of Obamacare over a faux GOPe opposition to the progressive agenda.

    To paraphrase an old song, “If that ain’t conservative, you can kiss our a-ahem.”

    The “true conservatives” of the #NeverTrump movement need to get on board the Trump train, or just sit down, shut up, and quit trying to divide the American conservative vote, unless they truly want Hillary as POTUS.

    If they want Hillary as POTUS, they were never conservative to begin with, because no true conservative would ever prefer Hillary, the criminal, over Trump, the successful American businessman, despite his shortcomings, of which we are well aware.

    Trump has exposed most of the GOP “conservatives” as complete phonies. Especially Cruz — The Great Conservative standard bearer. His failure to honor his pledge to support the nominee and therefore tacit support for Hillary clearly indicates he is fine with having a liberal dominated Supreme Court for the next 25 years. Same with many other GOP conservative phonies both in office and in the media. They are total frauds. These turds think they have a future but the GOP base voters will turn on them. I know I’m done with these phonies.
