Famed Columnist George Will Leaves Republican Party

June 25, 2016

How can thinking men and women, those serious minded people who do ponder policy, remain in the Republican Party?  Well some of the most cerebral are leaving.

Conservative columnist George Will says he is leaving the Republican Party because of Donald Trump.  Will, who resides in Maryland, said he changed his affiliation this month from Republican to unaffiliated.

A report from PJ Media quoted Will as saying: “This is not my party.”

Will has been an outspoken critic of Donald Trump, correctly noting in a column in April that the presumptive GOP presidential nominee is imperiling Republican chances of maintaining its majority in the Senate.

At least half a dozen Republican senators seeking reelection and Senate aspirants can hope to win if the person at the top of the Republican ticket loses their state by, say, only four points, but not if he loses by 10″.

    I allow all sorts of comments. But I am not going to allow comments which are not in any way related to the post or comments that are promoting crazy. You prove my need to act in such a fashion.

    You might like reading it, but you sure as hell are afraid to put anything by say, MIses on this blog.You continue your Marxist way of shutting down any opposing view.
    Besides that, anyone who supports Hillary is not intelligent or informed.

    As a liberal Democrat who enjoys intelligent writing and esp. from ‘the other side’ I would love to just meet Will. I read him faithfully when he wrote for many years at Newsweek and love his powerful use of language. One special memory was meeting and talking with Robert Novak following his speech at UW-Madison. We were worlds apart politically but both found common ground with media and newspapers. A joyful encounter with a true conservative.

    If I were a Republican, which I’m not, I’d be glad to see this self-important, pompous ass hit the road.
