HOW SHORT-SIGHTED LEADERSHIP HAS SABOTAGED CONSERVATIVE POP CULTURE
The Blaze ^ | November 20, 201 | Richard Mgrdechian

Congratulations to the GOP for losing the easiest election of our lifetimes. Over the past four years, Obama has been exposed as a liar, a fraud, a charlatan and a scam. We’ve seen his policies of racism, divisiveness and class warfare tear at the fabric of our society on a daily basis. We’ve seen the national debt go up by $5 trillion during his watch. We’ve seen the value of the dollar go down dramatically over that same time. We’ve seen ambassadors killed overseas while he sits around and laughs it up with daytime talk show hosts. On top of it all, we’ve seen an endless amount of buyer’s remorse from people who voted for him the first time around and swore they would never do it again. Yet, even with all of this – and an economy in complete shambles – we still lost. The obvious question would have to be how is that possible? Well forget voter fraud, the Electoral College, how much we spent or anything else; at the end of the day the answer is clear and simple – we lost because, no matter how many times they talk about it, Republicans once again missed the boat on popular culture.

CONSERVATIVE POP CULTURE

I'd say that's an oxymoron.

Weird headline although, yes, it's unimaginable that the GOP would lose a contest that was easily winnable.

Theft of an election has caused Americans to falsely believe that conservatism is dead.

The headline assumes that “popular culture” is created by political parties or something

THAT is not conservative by definition

I am of the opinion that the GOPe prefer minority status.

They don’t have to work as hard.
They can appear to be the opposition sometimes - and still go out after hours for drinks with their Dem buddies.
They can go along, get along.
They still get committee assignments.
They still get their turn at the money trough.

The GOPe is the lib-dems’ “away” jersey. Tails side of the same coin.

It wasn’t an election, it was a round up; community organizers herded voters to the polls like unthinking cattle, no doubt several times in many cases.

It would seem that the GOP SHORT-SIGHTED LEADERSHIP are really Dumbocrats who have infiltrated the GOP. Why else would they do everything in their power to destroy a Conservative party.

I agree with you. They’re like whatever team used to play the Harlem Globetrotters. The so-called “open and competitive” republic is all a front for true one-party system rule.

Your right,Obama is a liar,fraud,charlatan and scam,during the entire campaign,including 2008,I never heard our candidate even allude to any of that.
I heard he was a nice guy,he would make a good President,a good family man,a liar,fraud,charlatan make a good family man? A good president? How about he is in over his head?I agree that your message of love of country and conveying that through popular culture is needed,lets face facts,liberals have a monopoly there at this point,Hollywood,music and television are cess pools of left wing drivel and propaganda,not to mention the entire educational system.Our entire system is being controlled by BIG money socialists,communists and Marxists.
We have a long hard slog folks,I fear this is done,that doesn’t mean we don’t engage,those men who landed on the beaches of Normandy surely knew what the odds were as sell as those in the landings on all those islands throughout the pacific,but they faced it with super human courage.
This fight need that same super human courage,how?
We have to fight this fight with our wives and children along side us not thousands of miles away and don’t think for a second they won’t be targets of union thugs and leftist thugs in the media.
If you think the cowardly Republican representatives are going to risk their comfortable,lucrative careers and benefits for flag waving yahoos,forget it,as I pointed out earlier,where did you hear our candidate in the past 2 elections call Obama what he is and always has been,a liar ,fraud,charlatan,scam?
If you ask me,That is why we lost,the super human courage in this environment of leftist dominance to tell the truth about the opponent,with all the evidence available not to expose the liar,fraud,charlatan,scam was doomed from the start.
I don’t care what anyone thinks about Glenn Beck but the way you take on this fight is the way he is taking it on,he left his very successful gig at Fox and put his money where his mouth is,he started his own network with his Own money,he is developing an entire network with his own money from subscribers that are hearing that message about what that liar,fraud,charlatan,scam is doing on that network,he had had more success exposing Obama than all the networks combined, just one example,Van Jones,self described communist,appointed by Obama as Green jobs czar,forced to be fired on a Sunday night because of Beck’s expose on him and the entire network of like minded Marxist revolutinaries surrounding Obama. That is how you fight this battle,like Beck is doing it,in the popular culture,with your own money,network on tv,books movies and yes bands like yours,not with feckless cowards like Boner and the rest,they are traitors as well as Obama.
