With the 2022 mid-term elections just around the proverbial corner, interest, speculation and urgency continue to grow even during the 2024 presidential election, particularly due to the expected take-down of Congressional Democrats next year. , courtesy of total disaster known as Joe Biden.
Will the confused occupant of the White House seek re-election, as some in his party believe, or will he withdraw, while others in his party will pray to God that he will? And what about the Republicans?
Former President Donald Trump appears to be anything but a block to execute – to a large extent, I think, to vindicate the claim that the “fraudulent” 2020 election was “stolen” from him. A kind of “I told you so”.
Beyond that, I sometimes wonder why he would do it. Because he would go through another four years of Trump’s Imbalance Syndrome – this time even more hysterical – rather than go out golfing at Mar-a-Lago and do whatever else he wanted to do in his later years. Power? Sure. They all want power.
I voted for Trump in both 2016 and 2020 and will vote for him in 2024 if he is the Republican candidate. That said, as I always say now, I am not going to rebut the 2020 election in the article. If you are predisposed to do this, by all means, knock yourself out in the comments section. Everything good.
Assuming Trump does run, and then? As for other potential Republican presidential aspirants, I mean. Surely folks like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, and Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton would have the political sense to “stay out” and look forward to future elections if aspirations remain.
But what about other hopes who could not have the political sense to avoid this? Those who, for whatever reason, are unable to imagine the bombing they would do if they dared to challenge Trump, whether at the hands of Donald himself or the legions of MAGA loyalists?
Glad you asked. Let me throw out a name for you. Or two.
Like RedState reported last week the former governor of New Jersey. Chris Christie, once touted as a rising star in the Republican Party – pre-Trump, pre-demise of the Bush-Romney wing of the party – told anyone who listens that it’s time for the party to overtake Trump and Trumpism and focus on the future. , not about the past. Needless to say, Christie knows the very guy who can become the savior of the Republican Party:
Christie has trotted past all the microphones and cameras she can find lately, selling her new book, “Republican Rescue: Saving the Party from Truth Deniers, Conspiracy Theorists, and Joe Biden’s Dangerous Politics,” which comes out this week. Check out some excerpts from the book’s promo:
Enough of infighting, denial of truth, claims of savage conspiracies, looking back and refusing to focus on Biden’s dangerous agenda. Here’s Chris Christie’s urgent guide to regaining Republican glory and winning the election again …
Chris Christie has always been known for saying what he thought. Now that the depressing 2020 election is finally behind us, he shares his bold insights into how a battered Republican party can soar into the future and start winning big elections again.
In Republican Rescue, Christie reveals exactly how absurd self-inflicted grievances and wounds sabotaged Donald Trump’s many successes and allowed Democrats to take over the White House, House and Senate in two years.
Christie analyzes the final year of the Trump administration – which has resulted in nothing but conspiracy theories and infighting – and outlines an honest and hopeful view, explaining how Republicans can capture the future and save America from harmful democratic excesses. of today.
You think that is bad, you should read some of the bullshit I cut out.
Like reported from The Guardian on Saturday, Christie wrote extensively about the 2020 presidential election and its aftermath, including this incendiary little tidbit – with a not-too-good blow to Trump:
“[Republicans] need to give up conspiracy theories and truth deniers, those who know best and those who are just plain crazy. “
I’m not an electoral adviser, but calling a substantial percentage, if not the majority, of the Republican Party “just plain crazy” ranks right up there with Hillary’s “basket of deplorables,” which came as no surprise to that hacker, but coming from a guy who envisions himself as the future of the Republican Party? Yes No.
Christie also wrote, as transcribed by The Guardian:
“We need to provide our supporters with facts that will help silence all these fantasies, so that everyone can focus with clear minds on the issues that really matter. We need to stop wasting our time, energy and credibility on claims that will never convince anyone or bring in new converts. “
OK, here’s where it gets interesting. He is crazy. And whatever else you choose to call it.
Matt Lewis, a former conservative columnist for The Daily Caller who now writes for the Daily Beast, believes Christie could be a formidable candidate against Trump in 2024, but also that the primary but also that … Don’t drink right away – a Chis Christie / Liz Cheney ticket in 2024 could do away with Trump altogether.
Chris Christie and Liz Cheney may hold keys to derail Trump’s re-election hopes: Conservative columnist https://t.co/awKGiw84PN
– Raw Story (@RawStory) November 14, 2021
on a Saturday column titled “Could Chris Christie and Liz Cheney Take Down Trump?” Lewis argued that Christie and Cheney “could pose a more formidable challenge” than the candidates Trump faced in 2016.
What if Donald Trump were to fight a grudge match against Liz Cheney and Chris Christie on the way to a second term? This scenario is probably more likely than you think, one with significant consequences.
Both Cheney and Christie are tough boxers, and both are in the news flirting with a presidential run. In a sense, they are already racing against him.
Last week, Cheney traveled to Manchester, New Hampshire and delivered a “standing ovation” speech which was interpreted by CNN as “testing the waters” for a presidential bid.
During the speech, he took on conservative ground by criticizing Joe Biden and Trump, claiming that the latter is at war “with the rule of law and the Constitution”.
Lewis admitted that if the election were held today, Trump would likely win the election – a safe bet, given a recent morning consultation survey found that 82% of Republican voters view Trump favorably, 47% would support him in the primary, and no other potential candidates received more than 13%.
That said, the poll also found that 59% of all voters say Trump shouldn’t run for office in 2024.
I believed, from the moment Donald and Melania Trump stepped down the escalators of Trump Tower on June 16, 2015, to announce the most unlikely presidential race in modern history at the time when the only person capable of beating Donald Trump is it was Donald Trump. In some ways, I still do.
And, as we’ve seen since then, with the help of a puppet media farmer. Time will tell.
