When Donald Trump proposed mandatory deportation of illegal aliens, pundits and politicians on both sides of the political aisle were appalled. But on this issue it looks like Trump has the public on his side.
The fire from the right was almost as fierce as that from the left. "It's not conservative and it's not realistic and it does not embrace American values," said Jeb Bush.
Sen. Lindsey Graham called it "absolute gibberish."
Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer called the idea "crackpot" and "morally obscene."
But the prize for overheated rhetoric goes to Hillary Clinton, who said Trump wants to "literally pull people out of their homes and their workplaces, round them up, put them, I don't know, in buses, boxcars, in order to take them across our border."
So what do these folks say about the fact that the majority of Americans back Trump on this?
The latest IBD/TIPP Poll asked 913 adults coast to coast if they "support or oppose mandatory deportation of illegal immigrants in the U.S." Not surprisingly, 87% of Trump supporters back the proposal.
And the RINO/Establishment Republicans are totally cowed by Obama's threats to "shut down the government" if Republicans don't give him exactly what he wants, when he wants it. Yet in election after election, Republicans gain seats. What FOOLS and COWARDS the Republican leaders are!
No, their not cowards, they are in on it.
Just an update on the road-map to block Sen Cruz, assuring victory for JEB in the Republican primary.
"We’ve run the numbers within the splitter road map hundreds of ways, the structure just simply doesn’t support Ted Cruz. You can do all the math yourself, we’ve explained how to do it, check for yourself. Go district by district, use polling data (sans (without)Trump) and add, it’s math; and a pathway for Cruz is simply not there.
In addition after we posted the information for the Cruz supporters the Ted Cruz campaign contacted us and said they did have a viable plan ♦
Brian Phillips from the “Cruz for President” campaign said he would provide the “pathway to victory” outline – he never did. Nor did he respond to our follow-up inquiry; and remember they sought us out we did not contact them. It’s been more than a week."
The question remains: Where is Sen Cruz's road-map to victory in the Republican primary? If Sen Cruz can't, or won't, provide a viable road-map in the face of the ones presented at The Conservative Tree House web site, he should give serious consideration to ending his campaign and support Trump, as the only possible way to prevent JEB and his RNC henchmen from a sure Republican primary victory.
