Steering the Titanic toward an iceberg… breaking up The Beatles.
These were both better ideas than what conservative radio star and former Congressman Joe Walsh is trying to do.
Walsh has announced that he’s getting ready to throw his hat in the ring — not as a Democrat, but to challenge President Donald Trump for the 2020 Republican presidential nomination.
In an interview with CNN, Walsh said that he was “strongly, strongly considering” challenging Trump in the GOP primaries, and that he’d make a formal decision in the next week or so.

But Walsh isn’t just “considering” anything. You can bet that he’s in the race — lock, stock, and barrel.
Walsh has said before that he wanted to run for president in 2020.
And Walsh has recently been setting up his announcement by offering blistering criticisms of Trump.
Walsh has called Trump a “con-man” and said he’s sorry he voted for Trump in 2016.
Many conservative voters know Walsh well. He’s a former Illinois Congressman whose Joe Walsh Show is syndicated on radio stations across America.

So Walsh has an audience — but that won’t save him from what is most certainly a foolish mission.
It’s long been speculated that Trump may face a primary challenge. But logic always dictated that the challenge would come from more moderate elements of the Republican Party.
That’s not Walsh.
Walsh is more of a far-right conservative — and there’s no evidence that far-right voters are unhappy with Trump.
Basically, Walsh is trying to make a pitch to Trump’s most loyal base.

Good luck with that.
So Walsh shouldn’t be too surprised if his political stunt backfires, and Trump supporters begin abandoning his radio show in droves.
Walsh is taking one heck of a risk — with virtually no upside, and no chance of success.
