Lou Dobbs – Ryan, McConnell, Priebus, Obama Cozy – Alienate Real Leader, Donald Trump
Lou Dobbs has a few thoughts on some of the games being played by members of the GOP establishment, Speaker Paul Ryan in particular. While noting that he really finds Ryan to be a very likable fellow, he describes Ryan as being in both camps and unable to control himself.
He notes some of the situations, sources of irritation and scrutiny for his fellow Republicans that Ryan has felt compelled to inject himself into. He’s also attacked Donald Trump and made a late night appearance in which he “played cute” on the Stephen Colbert program, something Dobbs described as “not a particularly bright move.”
Dobbs pointed out that some might view the television sketch as being just a little silly and beneath the office. Dobbs characterized him as always being lacking a sense of proportion. He cited a transparent attempt to boost the political standing of his close friend and political ally Reince Priebus by inviting him to the House to explain the delegate process.
Ryan declared that Priebus received an “extremely favorable, warm reception by the House,” adding, according to Dobbs, “He is so pleased that someone like Priebus is in charge of the RNC, making sure the rules are followed.”
Dobbs says, “You can only imagine Donald Trump’s delight as he listens to such tripe.” All Ryan accomplished was to leave everyone shaking their heads at his naiveté and, some might say, his boldness. And understanding that Speaker Ryan wasn’t ready in any way for that job he didn’t seek but he now holds.”
“Meanwhile, his counterpart in the Senate,” Dobbs points out, “Mitch McConnell, trying meekly to walk back his anti-Trump remarks, saying he spoke, as he put it, inartfully when he said he was increasingly optimistic that there will be a second ballot at the convention.” Dobbs notes that they actually talk that way in the Senate. He says that McConnell has apparently decided his comments were a little too much.
Lou Dobbs voices his view that, “With all of these so-called leaders lacking in obvious tact, constraint, intellect, vision, gravitas, depth and character, it is no wonder that Donald Trump unsettles them so profoundly. And if the GOP loses seats in the House or the Senate, it will clearly be the fault of their fatuous leaders. And it appears the only way many of those threatened seats will survive in fact, will be on the strong coattails of a true leader, who has yet to be welcomed by the weak.”
