No one has the right to whine about changing the Republican convention rules. Okay, they have every right to whine. The Trumpists can complain all they like, but they have no right to demand the rules be changed. Unlike Obamacare or the TPP, the convention rules have never been hidden. They are accessible to anyone and everyone who enters this arena should darn well know them – chapter and verse. If they don’t – shame on them. So to start whining about the rules now is a bit disingenuous and juvenile. But that’s par for the course in this campaign.
These present convention rules have been in place since before Trump was a Republican. Yes, it’s true. In 2001 Trump was registered as a democrat. Then in 2009 he registered as a Republican. What else happened in 2009? That’s right – it’s the year Trump said that Obama “has the mark of a strong leader” and said Obama’s comments on the economy “have led me to believe that he understands how the economy works on a comprehensive level. I think that he’s really doing a nice job in terms of representation of this country. And he represents such a large part of the country. I think he’s doing a really good job.”
For Trump to say such things shows the mark of man with good judgment and an awareness of the world around him, considering 2009 was also the year of the Obama “Apology Tour,” where The One traveled the world telling every nation who would listen how terrible America was and is. What a great representative of our country. Way to go Donald.
