re: #4 Wendell Zurkowitz ((slave to the waffle light))
“When people started advancing every sort of unfounded theory about Obama being a Muslim or a Kenyan or gay or whatever, the GOP did nothing to discourage them or distance themselves for fear of alienating their base.”
Remember when Boehner was directly asked about addressing claims made by Congressional Republicans which questioned Obama’s citizenship and claimed that it wasn’t his job to tell House Republicans what to believe? Cowardice to the max. And now he has the nerve to criticize the GOP as being Trump’s Party. His cowardice is partly responsible for the situation in which the GOP currently finds itself.
