Skip to comments.GOP Primary Turnout Best Since 1926... as America Moves to the Right

Conservatives head to the polls in droves... and 'Cuda puts on a dazzling display of RAW POLITICAL MIGHT:
Asked about whether the GOP should move towards centrist-RINO candidates and positions following the Democrats' substantial 2008 election gains, Governor Bobby Jindal spelled-it-out in an interview with Rush Limbaugh:
"People need to look at the history of Ronald Reagan when he lost his first attempt at the Presidency (in 1976). He didnt go back and say, "Lets water down the conservatism. Lets dilute what were saying." He made it even stronger. He made it even sharper. Theres a lesson there for potential candidates
We need to be principled in our conservatism. We need to be unabashed, unafraid. We wont always be popular with editorial writers and a lot of the members of the national media, and thats okay. At the end of the day, its more important that we stick to our principles."
Regardless of what inside-the-Beltway triangulators might try to tell you, Americans respect a principled conservative more than they do some squirelly chameleon... whether they agree with their views 100% or not.
This was on display in Tuesday's primaries, where Palin's true-conservative allies continued to hand RINO opponents their hats... and coupled to the fact that Republican enthusiasm outstripped Democrats' in a way that hasn't been seen in 84 years.
As Obammunist apple-polishers in the MSM frantically spin the GOP as being in a state of "civil war" between RINOs, TEA Partiers, and Libertarians... Carl Rove sees it quite differently: rather than destructive disarray, what we are experiencing in America today is a very positive churning of a newly-energized American Right as we assemble a winning team heading into November [here]
Careers will be both made and terminated... but the resurgence of the TEA/Palin/Reaganite wing is all but undeniable now... and Sarah Palin's surely got the touch.
Meanwhile -even while on permanent holiday- the Obamas are looking like death-warmed-over... I wonder why, LOL
Party's over, eh comrades?

“He made it even stronger. He made it even sharper. Theres a lesson there for potential candidates”
...Jindal gets it. Will others?
I dunno, but I think the message on Tuesday is that there’s a growing market for principled conservatism in this country.
We’ll always have to tolerate Scott Browns in Blue States, what can you do... beats the hell out of another fricking Kennedy
Exactly why we need to eliminate the folly of "open" primaries. If you want to vote in the Republican primary you had better be a Republican. We have to stop the commielibs from crossing over and voting up the squrilly chameleons
In the time of gee, I dunno, the greatest conservative of the 20th century. :)
