If NeverTrumpers Can't Succeed in Their Plan A of Running a Primary Challenge to Trump That Can Beat Him (Which They Can't), Then Their Plan B is to Wound Him Enough That His Democrat Socialist Opponent Wins the Presidency

Remember, they cannot achieve Plan A. So when they speak of "Plan B," they're lying as usual - what they call "Plan B" is really their Plan A. What they call "Plan A" is a fiction for the rubes who would flee their project if they admitted the goal from the outset was simply to put a socialist into the White House.

But they're True Conservatives, you know.

As usual, these True Conservatives are so full of integrity and Eternal Conservative Principles is that their go-to move is just to fucking lie to other conservatives about their actual goals.

The "Never Trump" movement’s preferred strategy is to recruit a formidable Republican who might block the president’s renomination, or at least mount an aggressive challenge that presses him all the way to the convention in Charlotte set for late summer next year. Efforts are underway to woo Gov. Larry Hogan of Maryland and other top Republicans uneasy with Trump.

Short of that, key renegade Republicans are preparing to settle for Plan B: mortally wound him.


"The example of Pat Buchanan is certainly in the minds of many of us of a certain age; impossible to win, eminently possible to wound," Rick Wilson, a Republican consultant and leading Trump foe, told the Washington Examiner.

...


"For a number of people I've spoken to, putting a torpedo into Trump's operation would suffice for them -- if they could mortally wound him in a primary," said a Republican insider involved in the effort.

Outright defeating a sitting president in a primary is nearly impossible, and Trump's intraparty opponents are realistic about their prospects.

They may be realistic about their prospects, but they're still lying about those prospects, pretending "Plan A" is a possibility when it's not. Their goal is the same goal they had in 2016 and 2018 -- Elect Democrats, elect as many Democrats as possible to "teach a lesson" to the party which has deposed them from the power to which they believe themselves entitled.

But their "We're True Conservatives conservatively conserving conservatism" sales pitch kinda-sorta sounds fake if they run for the third cycle on a platform of Electing As Many Democrats As Possible, so they pretend they're totally invested in finding a Republican -- a True Conservative, in fact! -- who can not only defeat Trump in a primary but then reunite the party in just a few short months so that he can then defeat the Democrat.

And boy, someone at Hot Air -- I can't imagine who!!! -- sure is promoting the hell out of this plan to elect a Democrat president.

Just because someone (can't imagine who!) failed to elect a Democrat as president in 2016 doesn't mean he can't succeed in 2020!

True Conservative, y'all!
