Flake claims GOP a party of old, angry white men
Jeff Flake, a single term senator, whose polling numbers were so low he opted out of a reelection bid to avoid an embarrassing defeat, is now dangling the possibility of a 2020 challenge to President Trump. An unrelenting critic of President Trump, Flake believes the president‘s behavior is “dangerous for democracy.” Read paragraph three of Psych Central for further insight.
Flake’s aspirations would be humorous if not so pathetic. When he ran in 2012 he was given major boosts by retiring senator Jon Kyl and John McCain, who appeared in numerous televised ads on his behalf. Even with the assists, he barely squeaked into office by a flatlined 3 percentage points.
Not noted for integrity, Flake, an out of touch amnesty proponent, refused to honor his pledge to leave the U.S. House after three 2-year terms, staying on for double that, after wisecracking, “I lied.” He flamboyantly donated $100 to the Democrat in the Alabama senatorial special election, saying if he lived in that state he would “run, not walk to the polls” to cast his ballot for the pro-abortion liberal.
Appearing on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday, Flake feigned concern the GOP under Trump, who ran and won on the issues that resonated with American voters, represents “spasms of a dying party,” while audaciously promoting himself in 2020.
“By and large, we’re appealing to older white men and there are just a limited number of them, and anger and resentment are not a governing philosophy,” Flake opined. “But I do believe if the president is running for reelection, if he continues on the path that he’s on, that that’s going to leave a huge swath of voters looking for something else.”
In Flake’s skewed view, that political savior would be none other than Jeff Flake, known more for his peroxide streaked locks, obsession with beef caking himself and often inappropriate grin, than for exercising good judgment. The fact is that Republicrat Jeff Flake, doing his pal Obama’s out-the-door bidding, promoted Democrat Merrick Garland to fill a crucial U.S. Supreme Court vacancy. Flake escorted him through the senate, arranging meetings with those who would be casting confirmation votes and stated it was “time to confirm” Garland. Fortunately, Donald Trump was elected president and nominated conservative Judge Neil Gorsuch to the high court. But Flake still didn’t get the magnitude of the hearings as he embarrassed himself with this foolish line of questioning. (video).
Flake scored a pathetic 25 percent favorability rating among Republican primary voters in this GBA Strategies poll, with a 56 percent unfavorable rating. Over half — 59% — of Arizona voters disapprove of the job Flake is doing, and only 34 percent approved. If he can’t win in his home state, how well could the delusional Flake, who now refers to himself as a “globalist.” possibly do in a nationwide race?
Conservative Review gives Flake a.bottom dragging “F” Liberty Score. He has also ranked as the “most unpopular senator in the nation,” as reported by AZFamily, Channel 3.
The Beatles must have been imagining Jeff Flake when they penned their lyrics to “He’s a real nowhere man.”
