Where’s The Tea Party? Try South Carolina.
If I were psychic I couldn’t have made a better call. I make no metaphysical claims… quite the contrary. Ever since the 2010 elections, the Republicrats and the Lame Stream lap dogs of the Obama regime have been at great pains to convince us, convince you, that we were an aberration, a momentary phenomenon, a freak of nature. We would soon be absorbed into the Republican establishment, which would once again rule all of us rubes with wisdom… nay, true sagacity.
We talked at great length about Mitt Romney and the central and overriding fact that he is a big government Republican in the establishment mold. Worse yet, he’s moderate to liberal on most issues that really matter to fully 60% of the citizens of this country that consider themselves to be conservative.
That’s the one thing that Mitt Romney is not. No matter what the repeated battery from his PACs… those unaccountable political garbage grinders behind which Mr. Milquetoast can hide, while devastating anyone who is perceived as a threat to his vanilla Republicrat candidacy. Ask Herman Cain.
Romney’s all-too-cute destruction of Herman Cain’s candidacy with a (most likely) ‘paid’ bimbo eruption, during which not a single one of the supposed victims could articulate anything remotely connecting Herman to any impropriety, other than one very vague generalization of making one ‘lady’ uncomfortable. The one direct charge of an extended extramarital affair by another turned out to be just so much more opportunism by a bought-and-paid-for bimbo. Nonetheless, it had the desired effect, as Herman withdrew from the 2012 presidential race rather than have his family dragged through the filth generated by the Romney PAC. This may prove to be the lynch pin to end Romney’s presidential pretentions.
Newt Gingrich is a flawed human, as are we all. He’s made some serious mistakes in attacking Bain Capital, giving the impression of anti-capitalism which the Romnites and the leftist press have been quick to take advantage of. Fact: Bain Capital did raid several companies, resulting in their bankruptcy. But Newt Gingrich is no anti-capitalist. He led the Reagan ‘revolution’, bringing fiscal sanity to the lefty mess left by ‘Jimma Cata’. None other than Nancy Reagan herself was generous in her praise of Newt’s efforts and his unwavering support for the Reagan Conservative Revolution. Putting the lie to another of the Romney PACs whole-cloth prevarications.
Florida is being touted by the leftist press and the Romney team (et al) as the end of the campaign. That’s it, it’s in the bag. That presumptive thing fostered by the ever shifty RNC establishment again. Um… gee whiz, it’s those pesky Tea Party guys again. Romney was supposed to be nine points ahead in Florida as of yesterday. I’m not so sure. There have been many Tea Party types who, disgusted with the savaging of Herman Cain, have been waiting out on the sidelines and are beginning to stir in huge numbers with Herman Cain’s surprise endorsement of Newt Gingrich.
Herman Cain stood a darn good chance of capturing the Republican nomination, which is why he had to be destroyed. I’ll tell you what must be giving not only Romney but MaoBama himself hives… the thought of a Gingrich candidacy in which he drafts Herman Cain as his running mate. Talk about a living nightmare for the communist regime of our wannabe Mahdi President Barack Hussein Obama and the febrile establishment Repubics (thanks, Mark Levin).
The South Carolina Tea Party Patriots fired the first shot. It won’t be the last.
