We must vote for conservatives in down ticket races. We've got to be there for them.
Even for those disenchanted with our selection at the top of the ticket, it is WRONG to forego voting in some kind of temper tantrum. There are other conservatives running for other offices, and retaining the House and capturing the Senate is a priority, rinos notwithstanding. And let's not forget state, local, and judicial races, not to mention issues on the ballot.
I promise I’ll vote for every conservative on my ballot.
I suppose we could expell them from the party ~ actually we need to do that as soon as possible. First, clean the big donor's pockets, then expell their nancy boys!
LOL - the 2006 and 2008 elections were NOT lost because social issues Republicans didn’t go to the polls. The 2012 election will not be won entirely on social issues, either.
The GOP are a bunch of numbnuts afraid of their own shadow that they not even cast. All they can bring up is the economy, economy, economy....
You mean to tell me that that is the only problem America has — the economy?
Sheesh what a mess.
To heck with it...just let Obama & democrats win and see how bad it will get. May be then moderates will wake up. With 2 or 3 more justices appointed to SCOTUS by Obama could start a revolution?
No leaders Chris Cristie seems to be leading the scare them campaigne and anti Eastwood campaigne just fine while patting himself on the shoulder.
The GOP doesn’t care. They only care money.
The GOP is trying to jettison social issues as fast as they can. Just like they are trying to get rid of the TEA party.
When I was waiting in the long line during that Wednesday of the Chick-Fil-A “buycott,” I stood back and intently listened to folks, who were all animated and very vocal with each other despite being strangers. People were fired-up, talking about liberal indoctrination in schools, the country in total moral decline, the Tea Parties, Huckabee and Palin’s websites/facebook pages, etc.
I didn’t hear anyone mention Romney, nor the economy. All that energy to be tapped, but it’s going to waste. The GOP is too embarrassed by social conservatism and traditional values, it seems. Quite a change from 20-25 years ago. The assumption is apparently that the anti-Obama sentiment is automatically going to transfer into an avid pro-Romney groundswell, but I wouldn’t bet the farm on it. From what I see, it’s just creating a more angry, more alienated anti-politician attitude, and folks who increasingly believe they have no voice.
Anyone watching and listening to the Democratic National Convention would have thought that social conservatives run Washington and that we are a vote or two away from stopping this vision of the liberal progress the country would make under President Obama.
the left controls most of the media.
i’m watching the media talk about how women will be forced to do home abortions and segregation will return.
Romney and the GOP-E, turn their back on the Tea Party.
this results in nothing except:
1) NO change in how the liberals portray the GOP. NONE!
2) it makes Romney more bland, and seemsing to stand for NOTHING.
3) lowers the enthusiam and turnout of the conservative base!
...stupid stupid strategy.
Bill Kristol wrote the same thing today! Kristol says Romney better speak up soon. So far, he draws no contrast that moves the needle to his favor. He says Romney is back to his pre Ryan pattern.
Translation: “boring” everyone senseless, while the country dies.
Now, there's a response which should resonate with all conservatives!
