One of the things the Great Man was criticized for was his alleged lack of keeping the GOP and conservatives in “order”, or keeping them “in line”. Obviously that canard was just another lie detractors liked to use in order to denigrate the Great Man.
Evidently, considering the mess the far right is making of the GOP and their ongoing demands for a “purge”, it is more than obvious the Great Man kept all those nasty little factions in control. (Or at least he kept them in control until the great immigration war of 2006, which was controlled by the very liberal, pro-Planned Parenthood, pro-abortion, pro eugenics John Tanton, who founded FAIR, Numbers USA, etc.)
When one steps back and takes a cold, hard look at a rudderless GOP, being blackmailed, harassed, molested, and assaulted by legions of far right conservatives who are not now, nor have ever been Republicans, one can only look at the Great Man’s legacy with a renewed sense of respect.
Somehow he managed to keep the jerks in check. It is also quite obvious, of the far right had been more decent to the Great Man, his poll numbers would be much better. Unfortunately, the far right is vacuous acidic cannibalistic blob, devouring itself and anything decent that comes along. It is also increasingly obvious they are intent on destroying anyone who professes to be a Christian and lives by the Teachings of Christ, and not just talk the talk but walk the walk.
Instead, we are forced to listen to the manure that comes out of the perverse mouth of the likes of Glenn Beck who can do nothing but denigrate the Great Man, calling him corrupt. It might do well to have a little history lesson. The same individuals who today come to bury the GOP did the same thing when Ronald Reagan was POTUS.
On Monday, the Great Man said the following:
“…”I don’t see how you can be president without relying on the Almighty. Now, when I was 21, I wouldn’t have told you that, but at age 63, I can tell you that one of the most amazing surprises of the presidency was the fact that people’s prayers affected me. I can’t prove it to you. But I can tell you some days were great, some days not so great. But every day was joyous.” That, he attributed, to the prayers of others….”
