Regarding the GOP, I thought ‘R’ was for retreat.
” Consider the results:”
I did, Newt. We lost because we ran RINOS. Nothing more, nothing less.
When someone to the left of Bill Clinton can register republican in 1993 and 19 years later be its republican nominee for President, while still campaigning against the partys platform for being pro-life, for homosexual Scout leaders and a gay military, and his only political accomplishments being that he gave the nation gay marriage and Romney Care, then something is wrong within the republican system.
It would have become real nasty though that was what I was wanting for the 2 ideologies to completely collide. These other games that are being played by outside personalities is just noise. The two parties had to fight, head to head. We just didn't get that this time. After Newt's crushing win, in South Carolina, all deals and pay offs came out to stop him. The Republicans have got the moderate wing in power until they let/or we take it from them the Tea Party come in at the table to be in leadership, they will never modernize. They have to listen to Newt or someone like him with the experience. The R's are losing. The C's win.
Instead of looking at the Romney campaign in isolation Republican activists and analysts should be looking at the culture, structure and system of the GOP and its consultants, people who are paid for campaign advice without long term institutional responsibilities.
Republicans need a thorough systematic lessons-learned approach because the problem is systemic rather than personality-based.
Ditch all of the national GOPe consultants. And Romney's own inner circle of advisers (fehrnstrom!) was even worse than the national pantywaists.
It’s glaringly obvious that the RNC is flatly opposed to conservative thought and will not support a conservative candidate for president. Unless or until the RINO-loving, ‘Rockefeller Republicans’ are swept out of power in the GOP, the party is doomed to electoral failure. Unfortunately, I don’t see that happening any time soon. That is why I intend to switch my voter registration from Republican to independent. I know when I’m not wanted. Although the Republican party’s stand on ‘social issues’ remains valid the GOP no longer reflects my political values or those of most other political conservatives. If the party continues it’s drift to the left I expect it to become irrelevant within another 20 years.
If this is typical of the discourse we have to look foward to for the next four years, brace yourselves for President Biden.
REPUBLICANS Not the RNC selected a liberal to run for President..
NOT THE RNC...
Useing the RNC is just a strawman.. its most republicans that chose the liberal to run..
and by the way REJECTED literally ALL conservative candidates..
IF you are a conservative and still a member of the republican party...
YOU’RE PART OF THE PROBLEM....
The bad apples(RINOS) have spoiled the whole barrel..
If you hang around you are now or will become a bad apple as well..
The democrats have perfected voter fraud to such a beautiful extent VOTING is a loosers game..
You have to give it to them.. it was brilliant..
NEW TACTICS ARE NEEDED.. “voting is not IT”...
Saul Alinsky tactics WORKED.. better than expected..
THIS MUST be admitted and faced.. or you have just become Syisphus.
forever rolling a ball uphill..
** Clue; Many republicans have been rolling a ball uphill for decades..
I never know what to expect from Newt, but this one is spot on correct.
LOL sore loser Newt. He needs to get over it and stop bashing Republicans to try and build himself up, it is not working.
Newt is right. I don’t know about his prescriptions, but his analysis brings to light problems that many people ignore or aren’t aware of.
Get back to me when the “R” word is “republican” instead of “Republican”. I doubt most of them could give you a proper definition of a republic without Google.
How could the GOP have won? So much hatred. If Michelle or Herman (or any of the other seven) had written this article the haters of them would fly in here here like flies fly to horsepoop. This forum supported Newt, so shut up you insects!
