Skip to comments.Beware of conservatives who see benefit in Obama's re-election
Posted on 01/05/2012 9:16:42 AM PST by Oldpuppymax
At least one well-known conservative has begun speaking out-loud the notion that an Obama re-election might not be the very worst thing that could happen, either to the nation or to Republicanseven to REAL Republicansthat is, conservatives, members of the Party base whose mistrust of Obama is nearly equaled by their mistrust of Mitt Romney and the 2008 Ghost of Romney past, John McCain.
The best-selling author of Looking out for Number One and Restoring the American Dream, Robert Ringer has been a Libertarian/conservative for decades.
And given 5 decades of Libertarian leanings, his support of Ron Paul should surprise no one.
But just prior to the Iowa Caucus, Ringer decided that should Ron Paul run the independent, third party campaign many so fear him capable of and it resulted in Obamas re-election, [Ringer] would be fine with that if it keeps Romney from taking the reins of power and feeding us small doses of socialism day in and day out. (1)
He argues that as Obamas 2008 election gave rise to the Tea Party movement, a repeat performance in 2012 could only re-invigorate that early, contagious Tea Party spirit which Ringer has found wanting over the past year.
Early on, I said that I preferred Obama over McCain because his Marxist agenda would finally wake up millions of apathetic Americans, Ringer recalls of his 2008 position. (1)
Unfortunately, the Tea Party has not kept the heat on either Obama or Congress. But if Obama is re-elected, maybe Tea Partiers will be jolted into rising up in earnest 365 days a year and will get serious about taking back America, he continues. (1)
Well there is little question that Romney is hardly more than a younger version of John McCain...

Insanity. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
The elite just don’t get the TEA movement at all do they?
TEA party members work and take care of business - until there are primaries or elections.
What does he think happened in 2010...???
In only 3 years the TEAs have had a huge influence on elections; local, County, State and National...without crony corporate or special interest funding. No lawless protests, no favored MSM coverage.. just well-earned tears, sweat and patriotism.
I would say beware of the GOP establishment who see a benefit in electing RINOs.
A bit like tossing your kid in to the deep end of the pool hoping he learns to swim. I’ve had enough “tough love” the past four years, Obama must go!
I see a pattern! If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and walks like a duck . . . !
Just ask the Germans how the elections of 1937 went, or the Russians about the elections of 1921.
What do you means they were never held? Their Constitutions called for elections!
Exactly the mindset which brought our nation B.H.O.!!
That is the real answer. We cannot survive another Obama term. By 2016, there won't be a country left to save.
Way too early to be talking like this. We have to start with the premise that our first and most important goal is removing Obama. All internal fighting, all personal agendas have to take a back seat!
Shortsighted. Unwaivering adherence to dogma will result in disaster. 50% of something is better than 100% of nothing. If my choice is between Bam Bam & Slick Willard, I’d hold my nose & vote for Slick Willard. I won’t cut off my nose to spite my face.
Four more years of obama = two more marxist SC Justices = America’s total destruction. That is all that matters.
He has already done extensive damage to our country. Obama has to be stopped now.
Don't bet on a walk in 2016 for a Republican President. That mistake has been played out before. And what good candidates coming up in '16 are you referring to?
Ginsburg - 78 years old Scalia - 75 years old Kennedy - 75 years old Breyer - 73 Thomas - 63 Alito - 61 Sotomayor - 57 Roberts - 56 Kagan - 51
“And what good candidates coming up in ‘16 are you referring to? “
Jindal, Portman, McDonnell, Rubio and Martinez and who knows who else we will have ready. We will have an ebrassment of riches then.
The country is already bankrupt the debt exceeds our GDP the future of trajectory of the debt under the Obama plan is unsustainable and Obama and the Dems have just begun their redistribution campaign, there are still 20 million or more illegals that are entitled to some free stuff. The end result will be a massive debt that will ultimately be paid by the middle class driving the middleclass down to the same level as the poor in effect creating the equality that the Liberals want.
The most important thing that can happen for Conservatives is that the candidate must articulately and highlight the dramatic differences between fiscal conservatism and the progressive marxism that has been the halmark of BO.
Then after they are adequately warned of the consequences of continuing down this path of unsustainable unfunded liabilities and wealth transfer to the unproductive members of this society, if America chooses the path of Communism than it gets what it elects and all we can do then is protect our own.
Well there are plenty of them right here on FR. Hopefully they get the zot. If this becomes a pro_o board I am outta here.
