I don’t want to make things personal, but since I am the Phantom of the Media it is my mission to criticize the media and lay open their foolishness for the whole world to see.
That being said, if you have spent any time at all on Yahoo, you have probably come across Matt Bai articles, which are really just editorials. Reading a Matt Bai article is almost like getting an estrogen shot, as it’s clearly the impetus behind the cloying, maudlin, emasculated diatribes.
Dealing with a leftist is really as simple as that hypothetical example I just gave. That is one reason why people like Trump, because he outs the fools for their foolishness.
Grown men should not be talking about bullying, sensitivity, and hurt feelings. A man who cannot control his emotions is like a castle with no walls, useless, and good for nothing but taking up space.
Democrats do nothing but cry persecution and make appeals to emotion. They have nothing substantial to say, and have long ago given up making rational, fact based, arguments for their policies. To someone who cares about facts and logic, the emotional rhetoric is just noise. Just like how rap and hip-hop are just noise to someone who prefers classical music, opera, and any sort of music with a regular structure that requires an above room temperature IQ to create.
Any grown man who seriously votes for the Democrats ought to be ashamed of himself in the same way that a grown man who still wears diapers should be. Being developmentally stunted, either emotionally/mentally or physically is a point of shame, not a point of pride.
That being said, I would like to go through Matt Bai’s article about the 2015 Republican debate, where he accuses Trump of being a bully.

Here we go…
You see, the primetime debate brought into sharp relief the actual schism that divides the Republican candidates heading into the fall. It isn’t conservative versus moderate. It isn’t simply insiders versus outsiders, or the party establishment versus the Tea Party types.
It’s about governing Republicans versus ideological provocateurs. It’s politicians who believe in wielding and reforming government as a vehicle for change on one hand, and those who see a career in public service as a mark of ineptitude, if not an outright vice, on the other.
So what? Better to have someone in charge who thinks government does too much than too little. Why? Because the government already does way too much, and it’s an enormous drain on the economy. Being independently wealthy is more of a bragging point than living off the tax payer, or should we also esteem the generational welfare moms? Matt Bai would probably say yes to the latter.
The 10 leading candidates to this point break down roughly into equal groups, although a few of them (namely Scott Walker and Rand Paul) are hard to categorize. On the governing side you have Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, John Kasich and Chris Christie.
Those would be the cucks who are really just liberals. These cuckservatives will maintain all of the existing leftist policies, and give into the Democrats when they want something.
The provocateurs include Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson and Ted Cruz, but the loudest, crassest voice in the pack clearly belongs to Donald Trump.
These would be the candidates who might be actual conservatives or right wing, and who are most likely to actually fix the problems. Out of them, Trump is the one who CAN actually do something because he has no sponsors, and his personal success has demonstrated his competence in the area of managing finances, wealth generation, organization, and negotiation.
It took only a few minutes for Trump to start denigrating everybody who chooses to serve in government rather than do something truly ennobling, like build casinos and high-rises for millionaires.
This sarcasm would be witty, were it not for the fact that generating wealth requires greater intelligence than redistributing it.
“Our leaders are stupid,” Trump said in regard to immigration, after refusing to rule out an independent run and laughing off his record of misogyny. “Our politicians are stupid.” (Mexico’s leaders, he added, are considerably smarter and “more cunning.”)
Which is true, and no one on the right cares about being called misogynist. A real man does not apologize for irrelevant things. He shows strength and leadership, not cloying, maudlin, simpering, begging for acceptance and apologizing for what he is. That sort of behavior is not respectable.
I mean, not entirely. Bush talked about the power of education reform, and Kasich had a nice riff about lifting up the poor through more efficient programs, and Christie pushed his plan to modernize Social Security. Each of them sounded downright Clintonian at times — as in Bill, not Hillary.
Which is why they’re cuckservatives. How about we privatize education? Let’s just take the government completely out of education. We can get rid of property taxes and minimum wage in the process. If it creates an international issue we can cut off all unskilled immigration and put tariffs on foreign goods.
But where Clinton coupled his calls for policy reform with a spirited defense of government generally, the best potential nominees in the Republican Party just stood there while Trump dismissed everyone who serves in government as a moron.
So what? Most of them are morons.
When Kasich, who served with distinction for 18 years in Congress before winning two terms as governor of Ohio, was asked to respond specifically to Trump’s “idiot” comment, he responded with compliments.
Because if they go against him for being right they will only look like greater morons and subversives.
But let me break it to you, guys: You’re not getting Trump’s supporters. They don’t like what you stand for. They don’t like government, period.
This is the first intelligent thing Matt has said, and the only bit of intelligence in this entire article.
You’d think at least one governing Republican would have the courage to jump in and say: You know what, Trump? Governing matters. Politics matters. It helps to know something about policymaking before you go running down everyone who devotes years of their lives to it.
It’s true that most people who get themselves elected to something or who lead government agencies will never own a tower with their names on it. But that doesn’t make them stupid; it makes them committed.
Committed to what, exactly?
And, just by the way, while you were pretending to fire people on TV, a bunch of us were agonizing over hard decisions that affected millions of families devastated by a real recession. We may be stupid, but we’re not callous, and we’re not amateurs.
They weren’t agonizing over anything. They were living off of tax payer money. Most of these guys are just renters, with no personal stake in the survival or successful continuation of the country.
Again, generating wealth requires more skill and intelligence than redistributing. When I was a little kid my parents experimented with giving me an allowance. You want to know how much of that money I have today? NONE, because as soon as I got it I immediately went to the candy store and spent it all, then I ate the candy in the same day. That’s how most of the politicians/renters are, and they are grown men who supposedly have “experience.” The politicians are handed all this money from the tax payers, and given permission to do pretty much whatever they want with it. They didn’t earn any of it, or create any of the wealth it represents, and we have seen the skill by which they have handled it in both the Federal deficit and the moribund state of the economy.
Seems to me a moment like that might have done a lot to lift one of these guys out of the middling pack. It might have resonated with all those other conservative voters — the ones who nominated George W. Bush and John McCain and Mitt Romney, because in the end they aspired to something more than a doomed revolt.
Those guys are all cuckservatives, and the “revolt” is not doomed unless the game is rigged.
What voters want, too, is a nominee who won’t let himself get pushed around when his closely held values are under attack. On that score, you can give this round to the bully.
“Bully” = Real Man, in this case. Maybe a lot of us are tired of the constant sensitivity training, lack of responsibility, and general cuckoldry that has been going on for years?
