Watching all the GOP Presidential candidates debates sans Trump underscores the importance of Christie’s contribution! He knows the truth about how dangerous the aspirant ex-President is.

Now as one who was Trump’s complicit messenger, his avatar, who broke with Trump after Trump failed to admit defeat and attend Biden’s inauguration, Christie attacks on Trump are probably futile.

Now Christie’s voice, along with Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, demonstrates the criminal cowardice of GOP leadership in failing to speak truth to their voters in an effort to win back power at the sacrifice of our democracy!

Anyone reading the evidence already knows Trump is guilty of trying a coup to stay in office, perhaps for life according to Cheney!

Read about her book revolutions here.

To me we are missing the main point of her special relationship position as it relates to Trump!!! We learn that her father Richard Cheney, George W. Bush’s Vice President, has strongly endorsed his daughter’s position on Trump! He and George W. Bush see Trump as a looming dictator who could invoke the 22nd Amendment and attempt as Liz Cheney says make himself President for life.

Those who understand the dire consequences of a Trump 2024 win must include Dick Cheney and Bush and have yet to show the courage of publicly coming out strongly, even as Goldwater did with Nixon, to be willing to lose the election to save democracy?

Also read the latest Atlantic Magazine’s comprehensive analysis of the growing Trump fascist juggernaut, as also well-articulated by Robert Kagan, Robert Reich and others.

Atlantic article here.

As Trump’s legal problems escalate, Robert Kagan whose brilliant November 30th Washington Post column you can read here sees Trump gaining more power after his nomination!

Kagan wrote another 12/7/23 piece for the Washington Post entitled “The Trump dictatorship: How to stop it” opining on how Trump’s pending dictatorship might be derailed by outcries from other traditional Republican leaders.

For example,

Does McConnell really want to go down in history as the silent midwife to a dictatorship in America? Can Romney not see that it is his destiny to lead the way at this critical moment in America’s history. Did Paul Ryan sell his soul for a Fox board seat? All these people went into public service for a reason. Wasn’t it to rise to an occasion such as this? Former Wyoming congresswoman Liz Cheney shouldn’t have to fight this alone. For people such as Condoleezza Rice and James Baker and Henry Paulson Jr., what was the point of acquiring all this experience and respectability, if not to use it at this moment of national peril? Why are Sens. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) and John Cornyn (R-Tex.) defending Trump when they must know he is a threat to American democracy and the Constitution?

Then he adds who for me is the main actor to get involved big time “where is former president George W. Bush, who is well known to be appalled by Trump? A word from him would go a long way to emboldening others. What a service he could perform for his country.”

Read his entire piece here.

To me Bush could and should be the leading voice in a powerful coalition of like GOP leaders.

This effort to me would be the main way to stopping Trump. Primary examples of present GOP cowardice by former people serving in Trump’s term as President including those to whom Trump has promised retribution if reelected such as Bill Barr and Mitch McConnel, but to me the prime example of Republicans who should be the game changing attackers of Trump would be George W Bush!! He would attract others including his brother, and James Baker and Condoleezza Rice if they would have the guts to emulate Barry Goldwater and his GOP colleagues in telling Nixon to resign!

The lack of courage the GOP Senators showed in failing to convict Trump after his two earlier impeachments and his attempted coup on January 6 following his claims of election fraud by then firmly proven to be false, now also indicts these GOP traditional leaders of unpatriotic, immoral and politically dangerous behavior!

The sitting Republican Senators who failed to stand up deserve telling, powerful approbation and that can only be properly administered by their own who need to step up now as Goldwater and his fellow senators did.

The fact the present GOP leadership can’t govern, constantly seeks media attention to attack our government institutions and cares nothing for confronting the complexities of real issues, makes the party’s overall fallen reputation frighteningly tragic.

Christie the reformed Trump avatar is by far not enough as this evil egomaniac elevates his rhetoric to make clear if elected his fascist plans, yet not getting a screaming a protest from the likes of former President Bush or Bush’s father’s key associate James Baker whose courage could derail Trump’s political express train!

This is an all hands-on deck time for democracy and all these above named GOP veterans must know that.

Remember when JFK, then only a Senator wrote his 1954 book Profiles in Courage and got comments counseling him to show less personal profile.

C’mon, George W, your time has come to rally your mates to bring this dangerous man down and allow a reasonable GOP candidate perhaps Nikki Haley to run!
