The Hillary Clinton health scare story is revealing yet again the Republican Party’s core weakness: Republicans either can’t fight or won’t fight.
Republicans have become a party that waits for deliverance. Instead of working hard, instigating change, and bringing the battle to the enemy, Republicans wait. They wait for the Supreme Court to strike down a law they don’t like; they wait for prosecutors to hand down an indictment on someone they don’t like.
Ask yourselves, how did those waits turn out? And now they wait for Hillary Clinton to either drop out or die? Is this anything Republicans should be proud of? The party of the Death Wish?
Republicans have become the party that waits for someone else to do the dirty work, to lead the charge, so they may later swoop in and claim victory. In so doing, Republicans reveal their core character flaw yet again. They don’t have the guts to fight.
Every time I hear some commentator allege that Hillary has a “serious” illness or won’t be up to the rigors of the Oval Office, I hear another dog whistle. It is the sound of surrender. And Democrats hear it. They hear Republican weakness. Republican timidity.
If this is the mark of Republican character, it should be no surprise that progressives have rolled over traditional values, free market values, and basic Constitutional rights. We’ve only had empty words, but no real resistance.
Republicans have become the Party of the Weak.
