Is that they are, as often as not, merely yesterday's liberals. So not quite two decades ago, Conservatives then were shocked at the defenses being made on behalf of Bill Clinton. The defenders of Clinton, once the truth was known, were reduced to telling us that it didn't matter. So what if he lied? It was for sex So what if he committed perjury in the high court? It was for sex. So what if he had an affair? So what if he played the media, falsely accused his opponents, manipulated the American public? Everyone does it anyway. Plus, he gave us the greatest economy in the history of the universe. What does it matter? Do values, ethics, and character even matter? No!
So what are Trump's defenders doing? Conservatives defending Trump? Why, sounding just like those who were defending Clinton all those years ago. Who cares about Trump's background? His recent past support of liberalism and Democrats? His voting record? His character and values? Who cares period! It doesn't matter. He's taking on the press. He's a rebel. He speaks his mind. He's got tons of money and is successful. That, children, is all that matters. Do values, ethics, and character even matter? No!
The problem with Conservatives is that they are, as often as not, merely yesterday's liberals.
