I think we’re starting from a weaker point now than in 1992. W has done a lot to decimate the party and McNasty accelerated that decimation. We do have Palin on the horizon for ‘12, which is a good thing, and there are some other good governors around, but the Republican “brand”, as they say, as been run into the ground by W (and I’m not talking about Iraq which was the one good thing he did, but all that socialist spending) and there’s nobody in congress that I can see who is going to rise up like Newt and proclaim a Contract that the average American can get behind.

Not to mention that the “average American” is a lot more Hispanic than in 1992.

Things have changed. This is not 1992 all over again. Things are bleaker for conservatives and true Republicans now.

McNasty accelerated that decimation.

Ain't that the truth? Probably our best hope is for Osama's constituencies to spend so much energy fighting each other for a dwindling tax pie that big government is neutered somewhat.

“In the 1992 national elections, the Coalition distributed 40 million voter guides. Forty-one percent of the congressional candidates who received a 100% rating from the Coalition’s voter guide won.”

(That’s the Christian Coalition and Pat Robertson)
