I was one of those miffed by Palin’s early endorsement of Trump over Ted Cruz.
OK, the situation is what it is, lets move on. I cast my ballot for Donald to stop Hillary Clinton, and now as the president elect I want him to succeed. That doesn’t mean however that I am to become detached from my conservative philosophy in order to promote him. I can do both.
This time around I look not only at Donald Trump, but also at his VP-elect, Mike Pence. My beef is that “the deal” was not simply an open appeal to Carrier (and by default, United Technologies Corporation Building & Industrial Systems which owns Carrier) that his administration promises to lower all corporate taxes and deeply slash the EPA which is killing jobs. My gripe is that it singles out Carrier for special back room deals over that of its competition. That is cronyism. This is nothing to cheer about.
