It looks like someone wants to start the blame game on another thread. Yeah. It’s OUR fault Obama won. We conservatives are responsible. It’s our fault that we didn’t get all fired up for the weak, moderate nominee, Mitt Romney.
Granted. President Obama is going to be far worse. In what sort of Bizzaro World does the traitorous, anti-military Senator Kerry get put in charge of the military? Answer: Obama’s World.
Nevertheless, we need to stop bashing our fellow conservatives who didn’t vote for Romney. It’s the same situation as with McCain. The Republicans nominated a terrible candidate. To this day, I can’t really tell you what Romney stood for except complete surrender on social issues. You can’t blame voters when the party nominates a weak moderate like Romney.
Voters need someone to vote FOR not just someone to vote against. Some Republican diehards will vote no matter who the nominee is (so long as he has an R by his name), but fear of Obama will only take us so far. We have to offer something distinctly different than, “I’m not as bad as that other guy!”
“It looks like someone wants to start the blame game on another thread. Yeah. Its OUR fault Obama won. We conservatives are responsible. Its our fault that we didnt get all fired up for the weak, moderate nominee, Mitt Romney.”
That’s as far as we go with agreement.
Our opinions severely diverge after that.
Look at yourself in the mirror every morning for the next four years and say to yourself "I'm glad Obama was reelected because I stuck to my principles and that's more important than saving the country from a monster. America will go down in flames but my conscience is clear"
That's what's really important, right?
