Yes, indeed - as illustrated by the fact the only Republicans that can currently be pointed to for showing any guts on issue are John McCain and Lindsey Graham.
Take a world wide disaster and I can arguably say afterwords conservatives will survive. Liberals cannot and will not stand up and become sane logical leaders.
All we need now is a comet, pole reversal or a really big solar flare, millions will die, maybe even a billion.
And THEN will true leadership appear, NOT in this current mess of things, NOT while Satan has his day at play, that day of play isn’t over yet, but it will be soon.

The enthusiasm that got people out in 2010, I'm seeing at every Mitt Romney rally. Romney's drawing crowds of 20,000, 25,000, 30,000, 15,000. The enthusiasm that we all saw in 2010 is there. The same issues that existed in 2010 exist today. There hasn't been anything that's gotten better.
