All the chief architects of the Never Trump movement are either has-beens or never-weres. I was dimly aware of a few of these Machiavels — probably owing to my legendary long-term memory — but most of them I had never heard of before and probably never will again. As for problem number two, none of the Never Trumpers could come up with up a compelling reason to vote for Joe Biden as an alternative to the president when Joe finally emerges from his basement to challenge the president. Donald, his tweets aside, brought us to a robust economy. He is doing it again…

One is a fellow called Stuart Stevens, who claims to have been “the chief strategist” on Mitt Romney’s long-ago presidential bid. But Mr. Romney lost. Another is Tim Miller, identified by The Washington Post as “a Republican operative who worked on Jeb Bush’s 2016 presidential campaign.” Possibly he did. And then there is Mike Murphy, a seasoned Republican “strategist.” What does that mean?

Also, numbered among the Never Trump leaders is William Kristol, referred to by The Post as “a conservative commentator.” I remember him from headier days. Finally, let me introduce you to Sarah Longwell, the founder of Republican Voters Against Trump. The Post describes her as a “longtime conservative and self-described ‘Never Trumper.’” Well, I have been a conservative for over half a century, and I have never heard of her. But there you have the truncated biographies of some of the titans who are running the Never Trump organizations that are going to turn Donald Trump out of office this year. I have my doubts.
