Rush Limbaugh gets it – this is an election and people debate – a debate is where people argue and prove their points. It gets heated and there is arguing. Like it or not it is what it is. Candidates get attacked. That is what happens in debates.
Since the GOP presidential race began, most of the vetting has been aimed at Trump. Daily, actually 24/7, Trump has been blasted from every angle the media, GOP and all their candidates could think of. During this “destroy the Trump campaign” frenzy, many of the other candidates have escaped the vetting process.
It is always interesting to watch the establishment blast away their torpedoes at Trump and kid glove the other string of candidates. To hear the vile name calling, the lies and the gotcha’s, along with the false sound bites aimed at Trump is normal now. Trump supporters are immune to it. However, what is interesting is that when the actual words and behavior of any other candidates are noted – their supporters all call foul, unfair and start vile name calling at the messenger.
They pull Saul Alinsky and have no idea they are doing it. This is what happens when lopsided establishment vetting begins and remains. When they get around to vetting the others – the supporters flip out.
Meanwhile, as a Trump supporter, I have become immune to the torpedoes and have learned to shout – incoming – brace yourselves.
Well, now it seems to be their turn. Let’s see how the others fair after their candidates get their turn in the fire. Here’s where the rubber meets the road. Somehow I don’t see them getting immune any time soon. They seem to be far too sensitive for any real vetting process.
