I don’t know why anyone would care what Marc Racicot thinks about anything, but just in case anyone takes his endorsement of Joe Biden seriously, here’s why you should not.
Racicot, in case anyone out there can’t place the name, was governor of Montana from 1993 through 2000. He was a Republican back when being a Republican meant virtually nothing other than that you weren’t a Democrat. In case you don’t remember, globalist George HW Bush was a Republican. In case you don’t remember, sacrificial lamb Bob Dole was a Republican. Sexual predator Bill Clinton was a Democrat, and he ate both of them for lunch.
Then, after Racicot left office, he went to Washington to serve globalist George W. Bush as the chair of the Republican Party and then to enrich himself as a lobbyist and DC lawyer.
Racicot, in other words, is a standard-issue Swamp Creature who dutifully served the powers that be, and was mortally wounded by the rise to power of anti-establishmentarian Donald Trump in 2016.
Back in 2016, Racicot wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post titled “Americans can choose better than Trump” in which he declared the possibility of Trump becoming president a test for the nation. He went even further by deeming Trump an existential threat to our nation’s survival.
“Throughout history our republic has faced other extraordinary threats to our freedom, our existence as a nation and our system of self-government,” Racicot wrote. There was no doubt in his op-ed that he considered Trump to be as great a threat as the Civil War or anything else. Thus, Racicot told us he could not support Trump in his race against the corrupt liar Hillary Clinton.
Is anyone therefore surprised that in 2020, Racicot has declared he will vote for the corrupt liar Joe Biden? Can we just get over the fact that Racicot used to have an R after his name and admit that he is and always has been a Democrat who used the Republican Party for his personal advancement?
Racicot told a Montana radio audience that he will vote for Biden despite having policy differences with him because he is a better person than Trump!
“… at the end, the content of a man’s character or a woman’s character to serve in that capacity [as president] is more important than any other issue that I have to consider as a matter of conscience.”
In other words, Racicot thinks Biden has an honorable character! That glaring error in judgment by Racicot makes everything else he says laughable.
