    Sen. Flake says GOP is 'toast' if it follows Trump, Moore

    The Senator was caught unawares on an open mike expressing his fears for the GOP, last Friday night at a political event.

    He is right.

    PHOENIX (AP) — Republican U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake was caught on an open microphone saying that the GOP is "toast" if it follows President Donald Trump and Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. Flake was talking to the mayor of the Phoenix suburb of Mesa offstage Friday after speaking at a town hall session for aerospace company workers. He apparently didn't know the microphone attached to his lapel was still on when he said , "(If we) become the party of Roy Moore and Donald Trump, we are toast."

    Nope, you are a flake if you don't believe Flake, MM.

    ‘Giles didn't mention those comments in a statement to the TV station. "As a lifelong conservative Republican, I am troubled when candidates like Roy Moore send the wrong message about my party's ethics and policies," he said.’ Ibid

    Moore isn’t sending the ‘wrong message’ about what Republicans stand for.

    If being a ‘conservative Republican’ consists of opposing the privacy rights of women and the equal protection rights of gay Americans, then Moore is the perfect representative of the GOP.

    Flakey knows flakes, that's for sure. As far as the driving them off the cliff nonsense, I have heard that all before, and from the usual suspects (of which flake is a prime member), they were wrong about the election and they are wrong now. They believe their own BS and that way they don't have to fix the problems in their own Party. The Dem Party has been corrupted to its core by the clintonistas. We need to clear their influence out ASAP or we are going to be the ones dropping off the cliff.

    I guess that means you're not going to vote for them, they will be sad when they hear the news. It might even cost him the 2016 election.

    The GOP needs to be lead off a cliff. That way their interconnections with the Centrists/Liberals can be permanently severed and a new, truly Conservative party can emerge in their place.
