I Never Thought I Would See The Day That Conservatives Would Support This B Over A

As I have been almost all the years I have been an adult [at least 40 years] a conservative Republican, it is very disheartening to see what is happening to the conservative movement during the nomination, the election of, and the presidency of the current president.  Certainly I am not talking about all conservatives and I am not sure if it is even a majority of conservatives...but it is definitely a good portion of conservatives that I am more and more distancing myself from.

Here is a clear example that has me, and I am pretty sure there are others, who are very disheartened with a good portion of the conservative movement today.  I will give a list of descriptions of two men who I will label man A and man B.  And then after you read the two descriptions, I will ask a [rhetorical] question.

Man A:

* was a United States Marine

* oversaw the prosecutions of Manuel Noriega, the Pan Am Flight Lockerbie bombing case, and oversaw the prosecution of the Gambino crime boss, John Gotti

* served in the 2nd Battalion, 4th Maines/ 3rd Marine Division in Vietnam in 1968

* a former acting U.S. Deputy Atty. General and FBI director

* Bronze Star Medal winner, Received the Purple Heart, and 2 Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medals; received the Thayer award for his military service and Baker award for intelligence and national security contributions

* and a lifelong Republican

Man B:

* has said in the past that it was president George W Bush who should have been impeached and not president Bill Clinton

* uses insulting name calling to anyone who he disagrees with or thinks that poses a threat to him, including a Gold Star Mom and a physically disabled man

* has repeated [Retweeted] numerous nutty conspiracy theories, such as Senator Ted Cruz Dad, Rafael, was involved in the assassination of president John F Kennedy

* has been caught on tape using vulgar language denigrating women

* has had charges from numerous women of being abusive towards them and has had a charge from a porn star of being unfaithful to his current wife - at a time around when one of his children were being born

* has said there were some very good people among those marching thru the Charlotte streets shouting "Jews will not replace us"

* has certainly not been a lifelong Republican or a conservative

Now here is my question: Did you ever think you would see the day that a good portion of conservatives would support Man B and attack Man A?

For those who don't know:
Man A = Robert Mueller
