Leadership… What Leadership?
This has been sticking in my craw for a long time, but it came to the forefront yesterday evening when I was listening to Mark Levin speaking to Michele Bachmann on his syndicated radio program. Michele Bachmann has been targeted not only by the Demarxists, but by her own party. Folks, this is just sick stuff.
Her opponent in this race is a typical lefty, spouting ‘moderate’ themes only to turn hard left once in office. The difference here is that Michele’s opponent, Jim Graves, has very deep pockets with an estimated worth of somewhere around 140 million dollars. He has pumped enormous amounts of his own money into his campaign effort. Michele has no such resources, other than the money contributed by her supporters. She’s no stranger to competition, having won her last four congressional election races.
She’s also no stranger to the Tea Party Patriots, having launched a very large Patriot gathering on the eve of the DeMarxists suborning the law and the Constitution, to pass the economy-breaking MaoBama care without a single Republican vote, behind closed and locked doors. This lady is as solid a Constitutional conservative as they come. So why hasn’t the RNC and its chairman, Reince Priebus, come to her support? Why, in the critical state of Minnesota, in a key district, doesn’t the Republican Party march en masse to support one of their own? As of the latest report I heard, not one dime had been forthcoming from the Republican National Party.
Mark Levin posited that we need look no farther than the Republican leadership. Most conservatives, by now, have come to the conclusion that our Republican leadership is about as useful as sun-baked rock, and about that smart as well. Mark stopped short of accusing John Boehner of being behind it. I have no such compunction. John Boehner is no conservative… not even close.
I think our leadership stinks in toto. They started from day one with their lousy deal-making and accommodation to the DeMarxists in the ‘spirit of bipartisanship’. They signed on to lousy deal after deal, some of which are now beginning to loom large on the horizon. These turkeys have completely forgotten or ignored the fact that it was the Tea Party Patriots that not only won the election for them… we stopped them from getting their clocks cleaned. It’s time for a total leadership change.
Michele Bachmann is not the only strong Constitutional conservative to be torpedoed by this bunch of self-seeking and self-aggrandizing establishment Republicans. The Republican establishment’s time has come and gone.
As Tea Party Patriots we have a few bigger fish to fry first. Most of you have felt the shift in momentum of this race. I believe the momentum has always been with us, and that the results of all of the local and state organizing is just now making itself felt. We’re on the verge of a huge victory. We can’t let up now. Mark Levin also asked his listeners to support Michele Bachmann if they could… even a couple of bucks can help.
