Sounds like the typical stuff we've been hearing for a while now. The left has problems and they blame the right like they're the ones with the problem.

I've hardly seen anyone on the Trump team with regrets. On the contrary, a lot of fence sitters are starting to say Trump wasn't such a bad choice after all.


So Max Boot, with his conservative cred, (en.wikipedia.org...) is part of the left?


He is a Globalist RINO... has been for years. Here is an article from 2016 where he is jumping on the Hillary train.

Neocons, Warmongers, and Globalists Abandon GOP for Hillary




In case Americans needed more evidence that party labels are largely meaningless to the bipartisan ruling establishment, influential members of the establishment wing of the GOP — neocons, warmongers, globalists, and so on — are abandoning the Republican Party and in many cases jumping on board the Democrat Hillary Clinton campaign. From Bush-era war hawks who misled Americans into war to pseudo-conservative operatives of the globalist-minded Council on Foreign Relations, Republicans In Name Only (RINOs) are showing their true colors and allegiances. Blasting Donald Trump, more than a few of the globalist RINOs and neocon warmongers are now proudly on the Hillary Train.

Another senior neocon globalist on the Hillary Train is Max Boot, a left-wing Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) operative who claims to have been a “lifelong Republican” despite his love for Big Government. “[Hillary Clinton] would be vastly preferable to Trump,” Boot was quoted as saying, adding that he hopes the GOP will split.

There are very few more conservative than I am, and I have no idea who Max Boot is. That should give an idea of what his true conservative cred is.

Opinion pieces like the one you linked to in the Washington Compost are so far-out outlandish, they actually drive people away from Democrats, to Republicans. Pelosi, Waters, and the pro-illegal immigrant crowd, have the same effect.

I'm not necessarily an avid talk radio listener, but I know who those people are. I know quite a few on the blogosphere too. I know most of the tame columnists employed by big media so they can appear to be non-partisan on the Op-Ed pages.

Still never heard of Max Boot.

And Max attended UC Berkeley and Yale.

That explains a lot.

Probably a leftist masquerading as a conservative for some time now. A Confused man, obviously!

Also of note, the Republicans who are not running for re-election are chiefly these RINOs? Maybe that's the division in the party he speaks of but this sub-class of Republicans may as well call themselves Democrats.

Exactly! I was just commenting about the Republicans who may as well call themselves Democrats when you posted this.

Most of us cant stand most of the GOP either so Im happy to see Max leave. He’s obviously part of the problem.

Good riddance.

Just HOW is this coming from the Left. It is coming from a GOP lifer.

Someday I see the following conversation in a schoolroom:
    Teacher: "Class, today we are going to study the political turmoil of the early 21st century. I assume you have all read your assignment, so who has question?"

    Student: "Miss Jones, why did they call themselves 'Democrat' and 'Republican' when some people in both parties acted so much alike?"

    Teacher: "That is a good question, Timmy! We aren't sure yet! Scientists are still studying that era to understand if it was mass insanity or an evolutionary wrong turn."

Party affiliation has no relationship to whether or not a person is credible.

This guy, sure, he represents what we call the RINO's. Those who are globalist warmonger / neocons.

Neocon Pundit Max Boot's Post-Election Demand: 'Start a War Now!'

The foreign-born Boot, who was not himself inspired to join the military of his adopted country, nevertheless sees the election result as a clear mandate for...you guessed it: more and larger US wars overseas.

Second, according to Boot, once military spending is fully ramped up, Obama must set out to provoke a war with nuclear-armed Russia -- because, hey, why not go in big?

Recommends Boot: "Impose tougher sanctions on Russia, freezing Russian companies entirely out of dollar-denominated transactions, while sending arms and trainers to Kiev."

Then, Obama must commit to keeping troops in Afghanistan forever. No drawdown!

Fourth, "Increase the tempo of airstrikes against ISIS, and send a lot more troops to Iraq and Syria..."

On Iran, Boot waxes nostalgic, advising that Obama end talks and return to the US's "post-1979 role of containing Iranian power and siding with the likes of Israel..." Oh yes, that anti-Israel US foreign policy of late simply must go!

Max Boot is reasonable, however. He does not expect Obama to fulfill his demands all in a day. But he would like a little bit of reassurance:

"A good sign of such a commitment would be launching airstrikes on Iran’s proxy, Bashar al-Assad," he writes.

Another front in the war? Oh...is that all?



Is Max Boot the World’s Most Obnoxious Neocon? (2014/11/10)

So.... who in the Conservative Ranks Support this guy?

Oh.... about nobody but a few swamp elites.

Please tell him "Thank You" for us since we have had him pegged since at least 2014.

Same here. Never heard of Max Boot, let alone him being a real heavy-weight conservative with any following.

That is why I join Will and other principled conservatives, both current and former Republicans, in rooting for a Democratic takeover of both houses in November. Like postwar Germany and Japan, the Republican Party must be destroyed before it can be rebuilt.


Lol.

The Democrat Part is in total dismay, has the potential to implode and you want us to believe this tripe.

No thanks.

MAGA ... Clean the swamp ... in progress.

I got to totally agree with your post. The Democrats took a crap when Hillary ran for president, they bet on her and did not work hard enough to support the congressmen who were running. I think there may be some problem with some of the thinking of congressmen, something is making them all messed up, they have lost their wisdom.

Should have been required reading before the creation of this thread.

If one is going to become excited with the opinion of someone not in one’s circle, in addition to attempting to [ahem]...enlighten us all...[ahem], perhaps a quick background check of sorts is warranted.

Otherwise it reeks of desperation, laziness and carelessness, as we see here with this OP.

Meanwhile I *am* an avid talk show listener. The talk shows I listen to can make fun of RINOs and NeverTrumpers. I've never heard of this guy. I looked him up on Wiki, I never heard of any of his books.

So, there is that.

Both parties have some serious work to do to get their houses in order. It is like the human brain, it can't function properly unless both sides are balanced and in working order. Only then will it be a healthy brain as a whole and not divided against itself. Most people have a backwards way of looking at politics where both sides have this lust for control and are trying to swing it one way or the other because they perceive the line to be too far to the other side. This is a fallacy and that middle line is B.S. And when you think this way it comes much more of a numbers game in terms of manipulating minds with fear and emotion instead of reaching them with evidence and reason. Neither side is actually trying to solve for X. In fact, the way they are operating ensures that they don't even want to solve for X because that would undermine how they have been operating and they'd lose numbers and thus power. The incentive to actually solve problems is no longer there.

What we need to be mindful of at this moment whilst we fix the respective parties are the psychopath opportunists that are springing up left and right as they do when there is disorder like this before a dramatic reshuffling, i.e. Trump, the neo-Nazis, the Fabian Socialists, etc. They are all their own brand of bad news. None of them actually have any answers to anything whatsoever. If we let these extremist nut bars into power very bad things are going to happen and we'll have to learn this lesson the hard way instead of just simply engaging your brain, realizing that someone who disagrees with your viewpoint isn't your enemy, and reasoning it through.

In summation, all I am saying is stop trying to fight stupid with stupid because the end result will always be the same: stupid.

Max Boot is trying to do his own #WalkAway campaign.... Washington Post actually commented on it.

This guy Max Boot, sounds a lot like one of my boss's, but I have never heard of him like almost all the rest of these guys. My boss claims to be a conservative, and he is a never Trumper. He actually lost a lot of money on election night. I even had a bet with him that Trump would win. He is against Trump no matter what he does. He gets way to worked up in debates and comes off as nonsensical.

Looks more like a rebuttal (weak) to the current #walkaway craze.

Very awkward, but it will add to the (R) vote in November.
