FlashReport Publisher and OC’s own Jon Fleischman has penned this marvelously and unintentionally funny column in Breitbart where he calls on conservatives to rally around US Senator Eduardo Rafael Cruz (R-Texas) in an effort to stop Trump. What makes it a wonderful read is Fleischman’s admission they fell hard for the movie star appeal of failed California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s reign. Johnny Flash wants conservatives to abandon Marco Rubio for Cruz.
“As a California conservative, I lived through the painful governorship of Arnold Schwarzenegger, who campaigned as a populist conservative, then governed as a tax-raising climate change activist. He left a state GOP in shambles in his wake,” writes Fleischman who fails to recognize Democratic Governor Jerry Brown righted the ship by proving conservative policies are essentially bad for California (and everywhere else). In the column, Fleischman compares Republican frontrunner Donald Trump to Arnold, unfavorably, and urges Rubio supporters to rally behind Cruz while failing to acknowledge Cruz isn’t well-liked among Republicans.
From the column:
The primary we all wanted — the one where a debate of ideas would take place, policies would be discussed, and informed decisions would be made — that never came to be, as “reality TV” has consumed the entire process. I don’t have to tell you about the dangers of a Donald Trump — if I do, then you are not the intended audience of this column. Every primary or caucus that takes place going forward, with Cruz and Rubio battling it out, gives Trump a huge advantage, and more delegates than he would otherwise win.
The alternative to consolidating behind a Cruz candidacy is the overwhelming likelihood that Donald Trump will be crowned the Republican nominee in July, with everything that comes with that.
So Fleischman wants California conservatives and Republicans to embrace a guy that is pretty much a serial liar. And someone not well liked by mainstream Republicans. Cruz has zero endorsements from his fellow Republican Senators.
