The “right’s” punditry doesn’t preach optimism just because they believe it will turn a certain direction. They do it to encourage enough people to still turn out and vote because their are down the ticket races at stake. People had no hope and it was a massacre in 2008. Least they keep the house by raising hopes about Romney’s chances. Sure, it’s unethical but I don’t look to the Washington corridor to represent integrity.
The truth needs to be out there for anything to be done to fix the problem. Maybe the problem is a complete paradigm shift that the veterans on our side cannot comprehend? I seriously wonder if we’ll ever have another pro-life president, for example. I don’t know. I feel as though conservatives, real conservatives, are being bred out of existence.
