If the media had done THEIR job and covered the story, it wouldn’t have mattered. This is just a “day late, dollah short” piece from ABCDISNEYLGBT News trying to divide and conquer conservatives on the issue of Benghazi.
Direct your outrage at those who “knew in advance and did nothing”. Direct your outrage at those who lied to the public repeatedly. Direct your outrage at those who tried to focus the blame on an obscure and first amendment protected youtube video.
Mitt Romney is a nobody today. The President and his staff still hold office. The former Sec. of State is seeking the presidency.
But split hairs over whether a tv ad would’ve swayed the public.
Don’t count on the media for anything. Don’t suffer from tunnel vision, outrage can be spread around, there are plenty of targets. Expect conservatives to both walk AND chew gum.
I hope ABC succeeds in dividing conservatives away from Rinos, and that desperate himhope comes from someone who has preached time and again that there must be unity within the Republican Party or we will perish. Clearly, the time has come for Civil War in the Republican Party to determine who will control the party. If the Rinos prevail and retain power over the direction of the party, there is no option now but to split away and incur the unavoidable short-term and intermediate losses necessarily incurred in the startup of the new movement. If the Republican Party does not serve as a vehicle for conservatism, there is no point in losing the election at the primary level because we will certainly lose it at the general election level-even if we score a nominal victory.
If conservatives cannot use the Republican Party as a vehicle for saving the Republic, the Republican Party is no longer of any use but the salvation of the Republic remains a worthy goal. In fact, it is indispensable goal. Conservatism is at an existential threshold. Either we take over the Republican Party or we break away and compete with it. If we stay subsumed and co-opted within the Republican Party we will simply die a lingering death and we may not even survive as a party to watch the demise of the Republic.
The conscience of a conservative cries out for an aggressive unrelenting, unremitting 24/7 campaign against the Democrats from the end of the last cycle to the beginning of the next. We cannot, as you suggest, rely on the media because it is perfectly clear they will not abide a Democrat defeat. This particular television ad is an example of a Republican effort to get around the media to the electorate. This ad, or rather the failure to run this and, must be exploited as a metaphor of the Rinos failure aggressively to fight our corner.
We are at about seven months since the last election, seven months that John Boehner and most of the Republicans have frittered away. Karl Rove has not squandered his time, he is setting up a money machine with which to dominate the Republican Party and stifle conservatism. We are in a civil war to win control of the Republican Party and we are in a war to the death with Democrats. We cannot lose on either front if we are to save the Republic.
This is a momentous and perilous course. I am not unaware that break away movements and third-party startups are historically doomed in America with, of course, the great exception of the Whigs and Republicans just before the Civil War. Such a schism normally should be avoided at all costs. But after McCain and Romney, after both Bushes, I see no other way ahead.
