This ad produced and paid for a by a conservative Republican group is a taste of what these lying, spineless Republican Senators are in store for the next time they have to face the voters.

    1. Looks to me like the advisors are pretty much Republicans who are sick of Trump.

      What’s wrong with that?

      With only a 40% approval rating, there are bound to be honest conservatives who see through the phony president we currently have.

      How do you justify calling it a false flag? Alex Jones inspired maybe?

        1. So switching sides if you believe your side is wrong is not commendable?

          Loyalty to party or principles?

          Sounds like what the GOP is struggling with. Do what’s right or fear the wrath of the twitter chief.

          All this is now part of our political system. Opposition is “the enemy”.

          And guess whose driving that?

          1. You can’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

            As a Libertarian, I have serious disagreements with many things Trump has done, but he has also done a lot of very good things.

            And Hillary would have done none of the good things and a lot more very bad things.

            Every one of the Democrats running this year are worse than Hillary.

            So, yay Trump. At least until Gary Johnson has a shot at winning,.

          Switching from Republican to Democrat, but still calling oneself a Republican is definitely not commendable. As Dr. Tabor’s Spectator article explains, the Lincoln Project has no business calling itself either Republican or conservative.

          1. You equate being conservative and supporting Trump. That is not necessarily so. Critics of groups like the Lincoln Project are just peeved that party loyalty is superseded by love of country and principle.

            Unlike what Trump has stipulated, the opposition and critics are not the enemy. They are simply Americans who believe differently.

            It is going to be a vicious campaign. Truth will be a very rare commodity.

            “equate being conservative and supporting Trump”

            The reason that fallacy permeates the alt-right talking points is that it a simply way for the “cult” to rationalize their betrayal of the Country and support for an ignorant grifter as President.

            Only in your mind. In my mind I equate false self-identification with lying.

            False self-identification WOULD be lying. However, such is not the case here. george Conway IS a life-long Republican and the people comprising his group are also.

            Believe it or not, not every Republican is an America-hating ignoramus. Yeah, really. It’s true.

            A meaningless technicality, as Jeffry Lord explains in the Spectator link above.

            Their being Republicans their entire adult lives is a “meaningless technicality?” According to some lying liar writing for a fake news website? And that gives you and Tabor license to call him a fraud and a liar? Uh, no. It should not. As a matter of FACT, there is far more reason to accuse Trump and his followers of lying when they self-identify as a “Republican.” YOU and your ilk left those “RINOS” like Conway. They did not leave you.

      1. Doc doesn’t like Trump. He just hates America because 90% Americans openly laugh at Libertarians. Since he’s miserable and cannot have his way then if no one else should either and that’s okay with him.

        My mother’s description of Doc’s ilk was “misery loves company.”

    Bring it on. Most people will assume, as I did at first, the ad was produced by crybaby Democrats who, inexplicably, just want to remind everyone what a big, fat failure their impeachment project turned out to be.

    1. You’re right… the majority of people will assume that. Of course, those are Democrats. The Republicans who can smell a loser like McSally will know better.

      Generally I do not believe anything you have to say because you have proven to be dishonest, childish, extremely gullible and prone to violent rhetoric. But, in this case, I will take your word that they are “Never-Trumpers” which is another way to say that they looked reality in the face three or four years ago. At least, unlike some of the other “useful idiots” on Team Trump you seem to accept the fact that they are Republicans. Good for you.

      1. LOL . . . You need not insult me, little fella — for I am not a GOPster. In fact, Mr Trump is the only major party presidential candidate that I have ever voted for. I do not agree with everything he has done and on the issues of Afghanistan and Iraq, his policy has been nearly as bad as his two most recent predecessors’.

        Of course, everlasting war is also the policy of the Never-Trumpers and the fact that Mr Trump is trying to bring peace to the ME, is one of the primary reasons they hate him so much. Make no mistake, those creatures are far more in tune with your ideology than with mine.

  2. IMHO…

    Martha McSally is too far to the right in the Republican party. She knew she’d get invited to be a guest on far-right talk shows to boost her campaign making that comment…and sure enough she was (Yeah! Free advertising and media attention just like then candidate got back in 2016).

    Honestly, she should’ve simply ignored the question and kept walking.

      “Honestly, she should’ve simply ignored the question and kept walking.”

      Absolutely. But that is from the point of view of supporting normal civility and the dignity of her high office.

      From the point of view of hanging on to power in today’s GOP she probably did the “right” thing and that is the problem not just for the GOP but for the country. Call it the Trump effect but it goes back before him. Remember, for example, the AstroTurf Tea Party movement and their behavior at Town Halls and such.
