How do you tell a Never Trumper who is still hiding in the closet. Out of the closet it is often what they say. When they are still keeping their head down it will be in what they don’t say. Powerline has one such person who is actually playing both sides of the fence. When I read one of his posts and Trump is mentioned I just wait and eventually there is a backhanded slap at the man. You are familiar with the concept of damning with faint praise. I don’t even need a drum roll. I am getting to the point where I don’t read his stuff when Trump comes up.
I thought I was safe because he was writing about the energy debacle taking place in what used to be the free world. Here it was a clear case of Trump-phobia. Notice this section,
“Meanwhile, here in the U.S., we had energy independence–not just independence, but dominance–only a few years ago. It took a concerted effort by the Biden administration to screw it up.”Now, let me ask you, who was president just a few years ago? What country did not have energy dominance before that un-named person because president? Would it have hurt to mention the name in giving credit where credit was due?
I am beginning to wonder if Never-Trumpers are like Communists. They don’t seem to be able to change.
