In fact, they were calling Obama Reagan!
From Talking Points Memo:
The Reviews Are In: Conservatives Say The DNC Was 'Disaster' For The GOPThe liberal site followed with Tweets from Hillary's latest supporters.
I mean, I get that never Trumpers will not vote for him. But do they are cheering on a woman who takes money from foreign governments, emails state secrets to her buddies, used a charity to launder foreign money for her campaign, stole furniture from the White House -- readers get the picture.
While I get that it is OK to praise Hillary when you believe she did well, that only works if you have not called Trump a clown, a Nazi, and someone you will never, ever vote for because that is the context that readers put such comments in.
The tweets praising the socialist party included those from Jonah Goldberg ("Why this convention is better: It's about loving America. GOP convention was about loving Trump. If you didn't love Trump, it offered nada.") and John Podhoretz ("Take about five paragraphs out of that Obama speech and it could have been a Reagan speech. Trust me. I know.") and Charlie Sykes ("Snark aside: GOP needs to understand what is happening to them tonight").
Now most Never Trumpers are just not going to vote for him. I respect that.
What I dislike are these phonies who really want Hillary to win so they can sneak back in and take over the Republican Party again. You know, the party that under their "leadership" was destroyed in 2008.
And Obama as Reagan? Really?
I have a theory as to what is fueling some of this outrageous behavior. You cannot argue that he is a fascist, untrustworthy, liar or crook because Hillary is all that and more. You also cannot argue that he is more dangerous because she almost blew up the world with her reset button, bombing Libya, and taking bribes from the House of Saud.
So that means it is personal, not business.
At any rate, they have made their beds, let them lie in it with the liars. They are no longer part of the Republican Party. Fine. Now will they kindly stop their concern trolling?
The national party failed and Trump took it over. The new CEO cleaned house. Those who don't like it have parted. They want to see him fail, which is different from not voting for him. They are doing psy ops for Hillary now, trying to demoralize Trump's supporters.
It will work about as well as the "Against Trump" edition of the National Review did in stopping him in the primaries.
Meanwhile at the New York Post, a little bit of backbone on Page One.
