Wisconsin primary could be an axle-breaking speed bump on Trump’s road to nomination, by Pat Buchanan. Ted Cruz, now the last hope to derail Trump of a desperate Beltway elite that lately loathed him, has taken the lead in polls in Wisconsin.
Millions in attack ads are being dumped on the Donald’s head by super PACs of GOP candidates, past and present. Gov. Scott Walker has endorsed Cruz. Conservative talk radio is piling on Trump.
Trump’s abortion gaffe:
Then there was Trump’s suggestion, instantly withdrawn, that if abortion is outlawed, then women who undergo abortions may face some punishment.
This gaffe told us nothing we did not know. New to elective politics, Trump is less familiar with the ideological and issues terrain than those who live there. But the outrage of the elites is all fakery.
Democrats do not care a hoot about the right to life of unborn babies …. And the Republican Establishment is grabbing any stick to beat Trump, not because he threatens the rights of women, but because he threatens them.
The role of political correctness:
The Establishment’s problem is that Trump refuses to take the saddle. Again and again, he has defied the dictates of Political Correctness that they designed to stifle debate and demonize dissent.
