Why can Jeff Flake not simply shut his mouth and move on? Seriously. He has only himself to blame for the problems he has created. The divisiveness in politics he describes, considering he used the Senate Conservatives Fund to get elected and then flipped, is clearly of his own making.
Ben Domenech from The Federalist explains in his article JEFF FLAKE AUTHENTICATES THE PARTY OF TRUMP (please, take the time to read the entire artcle):
“Flake is also one of the rare politicians whose brand changed dramatically. In the 2000s, he was a Jim DeMint ally who took a strong libertarian stand on several issues, and criticized the George W. Bush administration from that perspective. In the Senate, his brand shifted significantly – and not just because of the Gang of Eight.”
What is so absolutely frustrating is how does Jeff Flake not take ownership of his choices? Seriously. How does he not see himself as the biggest part of his problem.
Remember When….? Well I most certainly do, Jeff.

Oh, and then there is Flake’s scorecard to consider (scroll through all pages to see exactly what he voted for and against).
While I am at it, here are the top 25 Progressive Republicans in the House and Senate according to Conservative Review.
Yeah. Jeff Flake, the number 8 most Progressive Republican in Congress, is doing the right thing by ending his campaign, therefore Buh-bye and I mean it in the most Conservative-Libertarian-Christian way.
