Posted on 01/02/2012 5:07:19 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
Some are sanguine about the Mitt Romney's chances of wrapping up the nomination if he wins Iowa and New Hampshirebut Joe Scarborough's prediction in such case was sanguinary.
On Morning Joe today, Scarborough predicted "there will be blood" among conservatives if they see Romney cruising to the nomination.

Everything depends on entitlement reform. To have even an outside chance of that, we need to hold the House and elect a conservative majority in the Senate. Since 60 Senate seats would seem to be out of reach,a dem filibuster of substantive reform is likely. That leaves four possibilities: paralysis and inaction (very likely); peeling off enough moderate dems in the Senate to break a flibuster (unlikely); a backbench dem revolt against their rule-or-ruin leadership (extremely unlikely); or passage of entitlement reform through reconciliation (difficult, but probably the best option at this point).
I think any of the Republican presidential candidates would sign the needed reforms if they reached his desk. But they will never reach his desk unless we get a working majority in the Senate and develop a legislative strategy to break or outflank a filibuster. I want a nominee who helps elect downballot Republicans in battleground states, and who has the discipline and organizational skills to navigate what will be an extremely difficult, long-odds legislative struggle.
You're on the right track but it wasn't the TEA Party folks who didn't unite behind her...
Aaahhhh, Mika...good little Soviet girl.
No. We’re conservatives, not OWS.
We’ll be disappointed, and maybe withhold our votes or vote third party, but their won’t be “blood.”

That only goes so far in a political movement, and right now the TEA Party is starting to fail because it did not coalesce around a single candidate. Just look who is in the GOP field and who is not. 'nuff said!
That’ll really teach ‘em a lesson, won’t it?
Yep, preserving the status quo is all they really care aboutwhich is why empty suits like McCain and Romney get the nom, because they can be depended on as malleable tools.
Neither the Democrat or Republican plantations want a real game-changer in office who’d upset the usual collusion of venality and parasitism that keeps the political establishment churning.
Thanks for setting section9 straight - your post was exactly what I was going to say - until I saw that you had already said it.
It’s not about Palin or the Republicans or anything or anyone else - it’s about us, and if we “punish” a party or whatever then it is us, NOT the party, who really suffers.
Ditto. By far the best response in the thread.
Nothing simpler than that.
Its pretty easy to see that is what is building up with all of this anti polygamy, anti Mormon stuff on the F.R which was most likely for the very purpose of getting the Religion worshipers to go on the war path.
I don,t know but would guess 90 percent of it either exaggerated or outright lies.
DING DONG...we have a winner here!
In other words, a DEMOCRAT of some stature needs to stand up to the union bosses, race hustlers, and socialists who currently exercise a policy veto in the democratic party and say, "No more."
Such things can happen, and in surprising ways. Nixon went to China. LBJ, an otherwise very bad president, broke the southern democrat filibuster on civil rights and ended Jim Crow. One looks at the recent record of the democratic party with despair, but then someone like Ron Wyden takes a remarkable stand on health care and ... can we do anything with the opening?
I believe we have reached the point where a electorial solution is no longer possible.
The Dhimmocrat/MSM wing is just too strong to permit the necessary questions even to get ASKED in any meaningful way.
The RINO/$$ wing is too strong to allow the conservatives to organinze—they will throw up too many ‘Ross Perots’ with their 3rd party runs (how they will win THIS time, too in November).
2010—we bought 14.5 MILLION guns.
2011—we bought 16 MILLION.
I think we all know how this mess will end.
Lock and load, boys and girls—it’s going to get interesting.
That's a sign that he does not attract the Republican base.
His shenanigans in Virginia prove that he does not care to allow the Republican base to even vote.
This guy has NOWHERE TO GO in politics.
To many of them have things in thier closets, strings to illegal activities and have to fall in line or else
You are correct, but it is We the People who will not tell these marginal, never going to win candidates to get out of the race. We also have 20% who are insane like Paul. The GOP elite and stupid voters are dooming our country. The only person people should back is the candidate who can turn our country around. If that is not done and I don't think it will happen with this election, all other issues are irrelevant.
