Prepare To Be Disappointed
For those of you have been long time readers here at the "View", I know many of you might not consider yourselves Tea Party people, but I think you can agree with what they stand for: fiscal sanity, smaller government, and a return to Constitutional values. Although the Tea Party was largely responsible for propelling a majority of the freshman class of Republicans into the Congress in 2010, thereby turning over power to the GOP, we are repeatedly told that this means nothing and that they have to get in line with the "Republican Establishment" and follow the rules (i.e., roll over and play dead for the Democrats).
I have never seen a more disgusting bunch of wimps in my life as those who portray themselves as the "Grand Old Party". I think GOP stands for the "Great Onion Party" (guaranteed to make you cry), or perhaps the "Girlie Officials Party". At a time when we need someone to stand up to Obama and the Deviouscrats, we get this bunch of turkeys. No, that would be demeaning to turkeys. How about, this load of "stuff"? ... unprincipled jerks who are more worried about their image than they are about the fate of the nation. God have mercy on their souls!
Therefore, it is with great sadness that I regret to inform you that this election cycle will produce nothing like the Tea Party values that the election of 2010 promised to give birth to. Indeed, I predict that President Barack Hussein Obama will be re-elected to a second term.
I make my prognostication on the following basis. First, it is clear that the "Republican Establishment" will not allow anyone other than Mitt Romney to take the nomination. Whenever confronted by the possibility that a true (or even a vaguely true) conservative started surging in the polls as the "anti-Romney", then the evil GOP forces of darkness went into operation. Karl Rove has blasted every potential GOP candidate with the exception of Romney. Bill O'Reilly and most of the other (supposedly conservative) FOX pundits went into the tank immediately for Romney and "pooh-poohed" the others as being unelectable.
The general wisdom among such talking heads seems to be that in order to get elected as a Republican, you must be half-Democrat in order to appeal to the independents. What a crock! More than 60% of people in this country identify themselves as conservatives, therefore we are forced to choose between a Marxist Democrat and a Liberal Republican? Next they'll be telling us we have to choose between a Communist Democrat and a Marxist Republican. Where does it end?
You might as well plan then on having Mitt Romney as the GOP candidate. You don't have any choice in the matter. It's already been decided by people in "high places". George H.W. Bush has given his nod to Romney, as has Karl Rove, Bill O'Reilly, Bret Baier, Brit Hume, and Ann Coulter.
Even the Left-wing media wants him to be the Republican candidate, and that should be a signal that something is wrong here. Why would the libs want Romney? Because he is nothing more than Obama-lite. If Romney should win, they can live with him. And the Left knows that Romney won't generate any excitement among his conservative base, so they are hoping that Tea Party people will get disgusted and stay home on election day. And, they reason, if you liked Romneycare, then why not try Obamacare? What's the difference? It's just bigger and better.
And with Romney as the candidate, there is a statistically higher than average chance that a Ron Paul and/or a Donald Trump will jump into the race. GREAT! That should be FUN. Why don't we just split the Republican vote two or even three ways! That will simply hand the election to Obama and here we go... 4 more years.
Why don't you just shoot me now and get it over with?
