Skip to comments.We Lost...Who To Blame And Why
Posted on 11/08/2012 7:53:08 PM PST by Absolutely Nobama
We the People got our teeth kicked down our throat.
I know that sounds harsh, but let's face it fellow Republicans, we're members of a party that failed to defeat a racist, dog-eating, homosexual agenda pushing piece of human garbage who isn't qualified to be a cashier at 7-11, let alone be President of the United States. We, the party of strong economies and national defense, failed as a party to dislodge an economically illiterate man who hates the US military with a passion. In short, this election was an absolute train wreck that may very well destroy the Republic.
Why did this happen, and more importantly, who do we blame ?
The Republican party, like a kid who can't sit still, refuses to learn. Moderate Republicanism and RINOs suck. They're about as exciting as lukewarm bath water. They stand for absolutely nothing. And yet, time and time again, ever since Reagan, they're all the Republican party offers on the presidential stage. Bob Dole ran a tepid, lackluster campaign in 1996 that ended in defeat, as did John McCain in 2008, and Mitt Romney in 2012. Yes Bush I and II won, but let's face the cold hard reality about them. Bush I shed his Reaganite skin like a rattlesnake the moment Ronaldus Magnus went back to his ranch and proceeded to lose to accused rapist Bill Caligula. Bush II won and was magnificent on the War on Terror, but was Herbert Hoover on domestic policy.
To this day, I still have no idea what any of the above folks ran on. (Except for the 2004 election, when it was rather clear it was either Bush or pray to Mecca.) Bush I ? He was Reagan's Veep. Bob Dole ? No idea. Bush II's first run ? I dunno, I voted for Pat Buchanan because it wasn't Conservative, whatever it was. John McCain ? Well, it was his turn. Romney ? He wasn't the guy who bowed to the inbred king of Saudi Arabia. They never gave me a real reason to support them, other than party loyalty. That's a horrid reason to vote for anyone. What's worse, they never gave libertarians, paleocons, Reagan Democrats, or independents a reason to vote for them, either. And hence, they lost (except for Bush II) and in some cases, in a rather embarrassing fashion.
Ladies and gentlemen, the reality of the situation is this: We the People need to take back the Republican party before we do anything else. We need to take over our local Republican parties and send the RINOs packing. Is it easier said than done ? Yep, but what choice do we have ? A third party won't save the day. Working with the communists in the Democrat party is unthinkable for a variety of obvious reasons. We need to stand up and say, "Dont Tread On Me."
My God given rights are not up to debate. I will not compromise.
+1, good post!
Mighty generous with other people’s money, aren’t you ?
If taxes go up on the so-called rich, what little job creation is left will ground to a screeching halt.
It’s this kind of attitude that did us in. No doubt about it.
Was was the old saying, those who don't work, don't eat?
Not anymore FRiends. We work, they eat no matter what.
God bless, FRiend! You definitely get it.
The Tea Party represents me. The GOP no longer does. It has proven to the be the backstabbing enemy of the Tea Party. So very telling, how the GOP convention even outlawed the very words “tea party” from being spoken.
I wish there were a big building somewhere which housed the entirity of the GOP-E/RINOs, because I would love to set it afire and watch it burn to the ground.
As the only big state that is reliably Republican, Texas should be the kingmaker.
“Romney had tons of money and absolutely blew it. You cant buy an election with no ideas.”
Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. Better than what I wrote.
You don’t win on a platform of “I suck less.”
The only reason we still have the House is the Tea Party, whether Boehner likes it or not.
And, not for nothing, why is he still the Speaker ?
I am really glad of one you RINOs decided to show yourself in a post.
I have a message for you. 2010 wasn’t about your politics or your money. 2010 belongs to the Tea Party and you know it.
Obama outspent the Republican Party almost 2 to 1. Now, I will admit that we have no idea where a lot of that cash came from; but, it happened and they raised more than you and outspent you.
We had GHW Bush and he gave us Clinton. We had GW Bush and he gave us Obama. I just bet you will run Jeb Bush and only God knows what that will bring. But, Jeb is a contingency plan and that brings me to my message.
You Rinos try to move the Republican Party to the left and all the money in the treasury will not save you as a Party.
We have all watched your version of Compassionate Conservatism or whatever goofy crap you can come up with to explain your power base and lack of Leadership.
Don’t go there. Because, if you do, this is one Conservative....and yes, I am a Conservative, that will leave this Party and work openly against you and your leftist twins the Democrats.
I have worn the Republican moniker for a lot of years and I have worked countless hours to get Republican Candidates into Office. I have Raised a few dollars and made a lot of calls.
But, some of the hardest working individuals I have ever met were Tea Party folks that came in and helped us vote in Conservative Republicans. God Bless them.
Good to know. You had me worried.
Great idea! That’s why Free Republic is valuable.
Great idea! It needs to be repeated. Put that idea on a lot of different threads so it gets noticed. Repetition puts it into people’s minds.
We can still win the 2014 midterms. Just as he failed before, Obama will fail again. If we can take the Senate with a large enough majority, we can override vetoes.
It can be done. Despite Romney’s Sit-Down-When-He-Pees campaign, it was fairly close. Two more years of this garbage economy will send them running back to our side, just like in 2010.
We just have to be prepared, and that starts with kicking RINO tail, starting right now.
I thought we covered that in 2008.
I was wrong.
“Despite Romney’s sit down when you pee campaign”.....best description of the campaign I have seen. Lol!
An explanation is in order.
My parents were old school, leftist Democrat secular Jews. They hated Buchanan with a passion, so it was an obvious choice for me as a rebellious, obnoxious kid who was incapable for using his head for more than a hat rack. I was touched in the head to say the least. I couldn’t be any more ashamed of this if I tried. But I can’t be holier than thou and not admit my own mistakes. That would be intellectually dishonest.
Don’t worry: I still love my parents. You only get two per lifetime.
1. They ran the wrong guy—should have run Newt.
2. Christie should have been nice but not giving a photo opt for Obama to make Sandy a political commercial.
3. Don’t pick on fictional characters —Dan Quail vs Murphy Brown. Mitt Romney vs. Big Bird.
4. Don’t be nice—their are no nice guys in the fox holes of Bataan! Its like war out there! Your for us or agin’ us!
5. Why not run a war hero? A Hollywood movie star? A talk show host? A comedian? —not a technocrat—cold fish.
6. Drop the suit and tie—and the $1,000 suites . Go with common clothes!
7. No more Moderates! Stick to your beliefs! Next time TRY the TEA PARTY! and not for VP picks. Lets go with a Conservative for a change!
