GOP de­serves bet­ter than Trump

These are great days to not be a Repub­li­can. They are also de­ci­sive days for the fu­ture of the na­tion. Con­trary to the treat­ment they get from the main­stream me­dia, the ru­ral and poor white vot­ers who sup­port Don­ald Trump are to­tally jus­ti­fied in their anger about the state of our na­tion. The tragedy is that they are clearly choos­ing the wrong man for their re­demp­tion.

The GOP must now find a can­di­date who both ap­peals to their bloc and in­volves the most mod­er­ate el­e­ments of the party. The only thing the Repub­li­cans need in or­der to de­feat Hil­lary Clin­ton is for their can­di­date to in­spire re­spect in the vot­ers. Sadly for Mrs. Clin­ton, her time was in 2008. The Demo­cratic Party made a ter­ri­ble mis­take in choos­ing Barack Obama (who was not ready) then.

It is em­bar­rass­ing to see peo­ple with ex­cel­lent con­ser­va­tive cre­den­tials — such as House Speaker Paul Ryan, Sen. Marco Ru­bio and Mike Huck­abee — sup­port­ing Mr. Trump. The party of Lin­coln and Rea­gan de­serves some­one bet­ter.
