The old guard has got to go, or November, 2012 will be a disaster.
The old guard gave us wonders like John McCain and Bob Dole, almost without asking for a show of hands to see if anyone else was interested in the job. GW Bush was no great prize either.
Between watching McCain flail his arms, Bob Dole fall off the stage and talk about himself in the third person, and cringing every time Bush tried to make use of the English language, I wondered if maybe the GOP was actually run by the Democrats.
What will replace the old guard? We will! Conservancy in its purest forms will replace this watered-down, moderate, mish-mash that allows middle-of-the-road people like Mitt Romney can be nominated.
How can we do this?
Actually, I think we ARE doing this with greater success than we think we are. Maybe the better question should be...
How long will this take?
American politics moves in extremely slow motion in phases that require four years to complete. Make no mistake, the movement has begun. If not in this election, then certainly by 2016 the Tea Party will either have a true conservative in the White House, or we will be an emerging third party and the GOP will be rendered impotent like several other parties in the nation's history.
The old guard should read that last statement very carefully. This is not something new. They can and will be replaced by leaders like Newt Gingrich or Rick Santorum that are willing to do the will of the people before their own.
We are not going away! We are only gaining momentum. Just on this site, for example, in the last two months I have watched our numbers grow. The level of activity on these blogs has sometimes had our service provider's file server computers smoking. We're growing! And, with nearly every new member here, the GOP likely loses one.
Sooner or later, even the stodgy, old goats that currently make the decisions behind the scenes in the GOP must take notice. Already we have had significant and undeniable impact in the Congress with the budget debates. And, even if we do not succeed in electing a Tea Party candidate, then there is the hope for a Tea Party-led Congress that must stand against Barack Obama or Mitt Romney. If that happens, then sobeit!
It appears that the media and the GOP are about to push Mitt romney to the forefront. Romney who brought us such brilliant bits of statesmanship like not caring about the poor man, refusing for reveal is finances, being glad to be able to fire people, and stashing his cash, and who cannot take Obama to task on ObamaCare, will be made to look like a fool by the Teleprompter-in-Chief.
Imagine that, being bested by a man whose best effort is to read what others tell him to read...
Mitt Romney...simply the latest in the long line of GOP failures!
I think Ms.Angle and the Nevada Tea Party are about to learn that unlike a boomerang if you throw away your influence it doesn't come back.
At least Ms. Angle is doing 'something' to advance true conservatism. Like many other conservatives; I'm blogging, tweeting, advancing and donating to true conservatives in all 50 states.
Tell me Iago? What are you doing?
Getting good people to run in local races and then trying to elect them. I'm an active member of my county young republican group, bless them for considering anything under 40 young. I also do volunteer work.
Very good Debra ME TOO I just mailed my early ballot in today in Arizona and talking to anyone who will listen anybody except Obama or Romney
God bless her.
My question is just WHO is putting the money in for Santorum???? Is whoever is backing him with MONEY just doing it to divide the votes so Newt can't win?? Ms. Angle needs to remember WHO backed her in the last election that she did not help herself to win....Politics is dirty!!!!!! Who does Trump think he is anyway?? Who cares who he is putting all his MONEY behind.....Follow the Money.....Pelosi said Newt will never be President!!!! Is the money coming from the dem. party......
There was some good news today!
Roseanne Barr is looking for the nomination from the Green Party.
This is sure to take a few votes away from Obama!
Some of us need to sing her praises on some of the leftist hotbuttons!
You had me until the last line. Deception isn't God's way.
Oh, come on, Vinny!
I have 'some' connections, I can't 'divulge'. I'll see if I can 'reach' them >:-)
How can we have a true conservative in the White House when we don't have a true conservative running? Jeff
People use catchwords like this "true conservative". What exactly is a True conservative? We need someone who governs from the right.
