Skip to comments.A Self Resurrecting type of American Hope

Like many of my Tea Party/ conservative/ liberterian friends, I am, slowly learning what surviving Obama is going to look like. I'm trying to recall when I last felt so badly as on the date of Nov. 6th, 2012 (may it live in infamy!). It was a deep sense of loss. Hmmm, probably such as when I found that the local Humane Society had 'done away' with my little dog Juanita Florinda, a glossy blondish cocker spaniel. I had waited a day too late to return for her. Boy did I grieve. I was grateful no one saw a tears. For many weeks after, there was no logic or bottom to my sorrow. Then months later, I got another dog, Melissa Patrica was her name. A black lab mix with a rhinestone collar. I was happy a secure for a while. I bring up the pets gone by, to compare with opportunities that appear so very promising, low hanging fruits of reward hanging low, gently swaying in the breeze, only to be snuffed out in the next scence of this unwritten play.
People laugh dismissively at the notion of seccession, but it would not surprise me at all, if within say, 15 years, we actuallly did develop into a new nation, one loosly based on the english model, with a figurehead president and a prime minister, who does most of the actual work. We probably already have that now with Obama golfing, going on vacays, talk shows, and clumsily hugging taiwan polititians in full poblic view. Lady Valerie Jarrett is likely our real decision maker. We will know the truth one day. Oh to be a fly on those walls! What an hysterical dramady tv show that would make.
I like Mssr.s John Boehner, and R. Priebus. I respect their professionalism. I do not think these two men will call out the injustice of that 1981 rle which PREVENTS REPUBLICANS FROM CONTESTING FRAUDULENT ELECTION RESULTS!! How in the HELL could someone agree to that? The Dems never would. We conservatives need leaders who are willing and able to remove foolish old impediments such as that. And no more sending GOP candidiates in front of extreme lib moderators! What was that about?
Sorry to hear about the dawg. You were intending to adopt it but didn’t get back quite soon enough, so it went to doggy heaven?
In the case of Mr. Romney, the “lib moderators” meant little. He showed that when he wanted to, he could mop the floor with Barack Obama. There is only so much smoke that can be generated to obscure an obvious issue before it is in vain. Listening too closely to focus groups, Mitt stopped pouring on the power too soon, however, and suffered for it through less avidity in his base than he needed to counter the way Democrats beat the bushes for any bum.
Also I hate to admit it our pollsters were wrong....Rove...Morris.. Barone had me believing we had this won.
Also I was incredulous when the MSM said that we ran an inferior convention. Ryan,Rubio,Clint, all focused on jobs. The dims had abortionpaloooza with Fluke and a drunken Jennifer Granholm. The jobs numbers of last summer were pathetic. The assault on the Church. I thought this was a layup.
it was only a few days before the election when I saw ex treasury chairman Paulson speak. A brilliant man. In the q and a someone asked him about the election. He said it was very difficult to beat an incumbent with a billion dollars. At the same time I have two nieces in college when I asked them they said “Uncle Bobby hate to tell you but everyone thinks the Republicans are the rape party”. My stomach sank and in my heart When she said that I knew it was over. Akin and Murdock statements had been played over and over on college radio, you tube videos and on Facebook...spread like a virus under our radar. What those guys said did incacuable damage to an entire generation of young people and the pro-life movement. After Obama won a couple of black guys down the corner...I live in a rough section if Chicago...were good naturedly jeering me. Finally I told them to stop....then one pulled me aside and said...” give me a twenty and I’ll get you squared away. Free food stamps..programs...all types of ways to get free money. Don’t fight it man get on board”
Lastly I agree. Obamas just a figurehead. Moochele, Jarrett, and their lieutenant Sebilius run the show.
It was an unfair fight, but who waits for things to be fair before fighting? At least Republicans should know better.
Passively polled, the R’s should have easily carried it all. However something called “voter avidity” factored in, and the GOP should have not just anticipated how the Dems would beat the bushes for any bum, they should have loudly warned the sensible half of America about that and urged them by all means to get off their duffs and vote if they don’t want Democrat bush-beating to drown their voices out.
You’re right. It was never fair. Ohio had been bought off then poisoned with a permanent campaign before we even nominated Romney. I had talked to an old not astute Asian boss of mine in Florida...same thing...”Romneys just a rich old white guy” . That ground had already been poisoned before Romney ran his first commercial. The media wasn’t just passively dim...they were all in. Heck I can freepmail you the numbers ..,.half the unions around the country have Bane capital handling their retirement funds ....they trust Bain with their lives on one hand and bite it with another.
“How in HELL could someone agree to that?”
Possibly because if they hadn’t every single pricintct in every single election would be sued twenty times over by Dems for somehow being racist.

This is why it is important to maintain control of the house and it parliamentary rules and get the 17th amendment repealed so senators actually represent the states as originally designed. That way the president being elected by the unwashed masses is not that big a deal. Unlike now where we have a want to be dictator in power being facilitated by the senate elected by basically the same demographic.
This should be the focus.
One of the weirdest rino tricks in years, is trying to blame the disaster called Mitt Romney on a couple of senate candidates.
The 2012 election result was predicted going back to 2007, it was predictable because of Mitt Romney, not because of whoever primary winners for senate seats would be.
The overwhelming of the primary process by Mitt Romney, who couldn’t beat two minor, unfunded figures in 2008, and who had only won a single election in his 20 years of campaigning, and who proved disastrous in that office and left with 34% approval, meant doom for the chances to win the presidency against Carter’s second term.
It’s no “rino trick” . What Akin and Murdock said was so misogynistic, factually wrong and just so damn self inflicted they’ll go down in history.
Akin especially should be pissed on. He had a chance to be a patriot and step down for the good of conservatism and the pro-life movement to save the seat. Instead he and his grasping wife put themselves over the good of the country that when we have boys in Afghanistan putting their lives on the line. What a couple of freaks.
There is nothing wrong with noting bad senate candidates, it happens every election, but history was made by running the most disastrous politically, and ideologically unqualified, PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE in modern republican history, probably forever considering that Romney was to the left of almost all democrat presidents on so many issues, even to the left of Obama on homosexual issues for instance.
A man whose entire political history was the same story of trying to force a square, inappropriate man, into a round political hole, Mitt Romney has never belonged in republican politics, or politics at all, yet through brute force and 20 years of record campaign spending, he became the most radically left-wing, anti-conservative, candidate in GOP history.
You have been here during the entire 7 years of his push to become the nominee, and you know how perfectly correct the conservatives here were about what would happen if the pro-abortion, Reagan hating Governor of Massachusetts, the “white Obama”, father of Obamacare and gay marriage attained the nomination.
It happened, his effect was turn the 1980 election into the 2008 election, except without the excitement of Palin, Romney lost the election that republicans could not lose, because he was Mitt Romney, the failed, one term governor of Massachusetts who’s mentor was William Weld.
The ticket did not even carry their home states.
The ticket was weak, weak, weak, so weak that it couldn’t win an election that was impossible to lose.
