Ringer hits the mark again - GOP gave us Romney instead of PaulSubmitted by kevinkervick on Mon, 07/02/2012 - 11:34
"A lot of folks are puzzled over the fact that Obama has improved in the polls during the worst month any president has had since the darkest days of Jimmy Carter — White House leaks, the Fast and Furious cover-up (highlighted by Eric Holder’s flipping the bird to Congress), attacking the Catholic Church, increasing foreign involvement using deadly drones, unemployment still on the rise, Democratic Party defections, foreign enemies urinating on his leg … and much more.
How in the world can this be? Why is BHO surging in the polls when everything is going wrong for him? Duh! Hellooo. The answer is obvious: Mitt Romney! What people are telling pollsters, loud and clear, is that Republicans have once again done the unthinkable in nominating a taller version of John McMush.
When you run presidential candidates like Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Bush I and II, Bob Dole, John McMush, and Mitt Romney, of course you’re going to end up with pseudo-conservative Supreme Court judges (if your man wins) who vote with their progressive colleagues on important issues.
And if Obama is reelected, all he needs to do is add a couple more far-left radicals to team up with existing radicals like Sonia Sotomayor and Elana Kagan (Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s days are numbered), and progressives will have bought themselves probably twenty-five more years to help Americans forget they ever had a Constitution that protected their God-given rights.
So, what does this all mean for the upcoming elections? With the polls showing, at least for now, Obama in the lead, a lot of sane Republicans are coming to the realization that they have a genuine emergency on their hands — a well-deserved emergency, I might add. I say well-deserved because they did everything possible to set up a rerun of their 2008 disaster.
For starters, establishment Republicans ridiculed and ignored Ron Paul, the only candidate in the field who was serious about cutting the budget and courageous enough to tell the American people the truth. They also helped MittMan assassinate a number of his challengers who, for all their flaws, would have probably beaten Barack Obama.
Finally, and most unforgiveable, they had neither the motivation nor the good sense to urge some of their best people — e.g., Mitch Daniels, Bobby Jindal, Paul Ryan, and Jim DeMint — to throw their hats in the ring.
The bottom line is that Republicans got what they asked for — McMush II. And if he loses to Bolshevik Barry in November, they will have gotten what they asked for. On the other hand, if Romney pulls out a victory, they still will end up getting what they deserve. Six months of President Romney, and the party of Lincoln will be on life support. I’d appreciate it if you would quote me on that.
Now hear this: The fanatical left is not America’s biggest problem. They are the clearly defined enemy — an enemy that hates America, hates the Constitution, hates Judeo-Christian values — indeed, an enemy that hates the very essence of Western civilization.
But these despicable and, for the most part, ignorant people would be pushovers for strong-willed, highly principled individuals willing to confront them head on with the facts and do whatever it takes to put an end to their down-with-America policies.
Unfortunately, instead of strong-willed, highly principled individuals, the Republicans offer voters RINO caricatures such as Orrin Hatch, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, and Eric Cantor. This, not wild-eyed progressives, is what is at the heart of America’s collapse.
