This aggravated me enough to make me want to share it on Zilla’s site. It will be interesting to see what you — her faithful readers — think.
I hate having to disagree with Cupp, because she, well she has those legs. But I am afraid that she has this one all wrong.
When Obama won the election everyone was saying that the Republican Party was toast — they were right. Liberals had taken control of White House, the Senate and House of Representatives. The RINO’S had lost the faith of the middle right masses that make up bulk of the electorate. Bush and Rove had moved to party too far left.
The Republican Party was finished — then came the Teaparty. The “sleeping giant” woke up. They (we) had a choice to make. We could start a new party, or try to revive the dead Republican Party. The Teaparty folks were talked into sticking with the GOP because they were convinced that this would be the only way to beat Obama.
The Teaparty vote was then split in the presidential primaries, and conservatives ended up with the candidate with the smallest block of supporters – Romney. The tiny group of GOP RINO’s had weaseled their way back in control despite the will of the masses.
This will not happen again. If Romney loses a new party will form, and the GOP will wither on the vine.
Mediaite – With Mitt Romney’s campaign under fire in the press on Monday for alleged infighting and with polls consistently showing the Republican presidential challenger trailing President Barack Obama, hand-wringing about the state of the 2012 race among conservatives has grown to a deafening pitch. During MSNBC’s The Cycle on Monday, S.E. Cupp took the opportunity to tell conservatives to take a breath. Even if Romney loses, Cupp said, the Republican party will survive.
“I have a message for my conservative colleagues who seem to be engaging in this circular firing squad: Calm down. Let’s chill out a little bit,” Cupp continued. “This is not the end of the party as we know it. We will not be shutting down the party if Romney does not win.” – Keep Reading
Everything rides on this election.
Why would conservatives vote for lukewarm Carl Rove type RINO’s if they are just going to get beat anyway? They won’t and the conservative vote will be split for years to come – liberals will have won.
America as we know it will be a thing of the past.
