What utterly BLOWS my mind is how anyone with basic reasoning skills can come to the conclusion that CONSERVATISM was the reason Romney lost….Can someone….ANYONE please tell me what was the CONSERVATIVE message that Romney articulated and how THAT so called conservative message caused Romney to lose?
CONSERVATISM wasn’t even on the table in the 2012 elections… CONSERVATISM wasn’t proposed as a governing philosophy in 2008 or 2012….CONSERVATISM wasn’t articulated, communicated or defended in any freaking way during the 2008 or 2012 elections….yet CONSERVATISM is to blame for Obama’s election and subsequent reelection?
How can anyone with the most basic capacity to reason even approach CONSERVATISM as being at fault without breaking into uncontrollable fits of laughter is beyond me!
This country is doomed…and as much as I’d like to point to the Democrats as the sole cause of her demise….I can’t….I put MORE of the blame on the enablers in the Republican Party who are supposed to oppose the excesses of the Democrat Socialists….and all we get from our Party and it’s leadership is duplicitous enabling, lecherous capitulation and in some instances treasonous collaboration with those who wish to do this nation ill.
I’ve kept my mouth shut during this election because I went over the top in 2008 in my opposition to and criticism of John McCain. I made a vow of “Do no harm” and I stuck by it since Romney won the nomination… but that’s it…I’ve had it…
If Mitt Romney had gone after Barrack Obama with half the relish and a quarter of the reckless abandon that he did against Perry, Santorum, Gingrich, Bachman, and Cain, he’d be president now….but he didn’t.
Here we are….after two general elections in a row…where the establishment has gotten it’s way….running two moderates back to back….running the campaigns they insist we must run to win over moderates and independents….That’s two elections back to back with candidates willing to attack their base with relish while refusing to take on the obvious falsehoods and idiotic ideology of the Democrats….and what do we have to show for it?
We have Barrack Obama reelected…we have trillion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see. We have Obamacare enshrined permanently in law despite a 60% opposition from the voting public
Yet CONSERVATIVES and CONSERVATIVISM is to blame for this?
And NOW these feckless geniuses are looking for every excuse to cave on every issue from Amnesty to Taxes to Environmental Regulation.
I Hate it every time I see it….but all I can do to express my frustrated amazement is put up the acronym I hate so much…..
