George Will, is he showing signs of Dementia or just a bitter old has-been conservative who’d rather see Hillary win the presidency than Trump

I keep bouncing back and forth between these two alternatives. 
I realize that Will is not a Trump fan.  But, for him to rather see Hillary Clinton become president over Donald Trump cause into question his mental faculties. 

In his latest column, the grumpy Mr. Will wrote:   

Donald Trump’s damage to the Republican Party, although already extensive, has barely begun. Republican quislings will multiply, slinking into support of the most anti-conservative presidential aspirant in their party’s history. These collaborationists will render themselves ineligible to participate in the party’s reconstruction.
Will is an intelligent guy, or at least he used to be.  Doesn’t he realize that the GOP has thoroughly damaged itself way before Trump ever came onto the scene?  Doesn’t Will know that that the GOP with its penchant for political correctness and non-combative attitude towards Barack Oabama and the Democrat Party sowed the seeds for a Trump phenomenon?  Or is George Will  living in a perpetual state of denial?   

Later he writes:

Were he to be nominated, conservatives would have two tasks. One would be to help him lose 50 states — condign punishment for his comprehensive disdain for conservative essentials, including the manners and grace that should lubricate the nation’s civic life. Second, conservatives can try to save from the anti-Trump undertow as many senators, representatives, governors and state legislators as possible.

I don’t know what the deal is with George Will.  But, it’s a pretty pathetic thing to see.  He used to be a giant of conservative thought.  Unfortunately, those days are long over. 


  1. To think I used to value his opinion. I HAVE LOST ALL RESPECT FOR GEORGE WILL along with a whole bunch of other conservative pundits.

  2. He's not the only conservative pundit to go off the deep end. Erickson, Glenn Beck, Mark Levin have always lost their minds.

  3. Trump may not bring the "manners and grace" Will espouses, but Trump brings truth, and right now that's more important. Cruz has been caught 3x (that I can recall) trying to cheat voters out of the truth during the primaries. Trump doesn't cheat to win; instead, he speaks. He says what needs to be said and what needs to be done. And his message is resonating with the people of our country.

    Hillary won't strengthen our military, our economy, our national security, or our sovereignty. She certainly won't help the middle class, Christians, our vets, or Israel. She won't reduce tax burdens for the middle class or the size and scope of our federal government. She won't repeal Obamacare or stop trade deals that push us toward globalism.

    Trump will do all those things. And he is the only GOP candidate who can win, who has the respect, enthusiasm, and support of the American people, and who brings in independents and Democrats.

    The holdouts on the right need to unite behind Trump and against the liberals and socialists who are the real threats to our country and our freedom.

    1. I think the biggest reason we have holdouts against Trump is because of political correctness. That's how much they're corrupted by PC. They can't even realize it.

  4. If Trump does nothing else he has revealed the traitors among us. There needs to be a massive purge of want to be democrats out of the republican party.

  5. Trump has rendered so many conservatives moot, Erick Ericksonm, Glenn Beck, Goerge Will, Mark Levinabd Dana Loesh, Jonah Goldberg and others. It's not because Trump is redefing conservatism. He'd not. It'd because he's a can do guy taking over a no can do party. It's really very simple to understand
