Coming into 2011, things looked pretty good for conservatives.
Barack Obama’s socialist policies were clearly not working and a huge majority of the voting public believed that the nation was headed in the wrong direction.
Conservatives had a golden opportunity to win the presidency and perhaps both the House and Senate in 2012.
Heady days, indeed, as Obama’s performance was so poor that a real conservative could prosper, which meant there was no need to compromise by nominating moderates or RINOs!
Now after a year of non-stop debates and humiliating mudslinging, conservatives are being told that it may be necessary to accept a candidate whose conservative credentials are dubious at best, non-existent at worse.
We are told that in order to rid the nation of Barack Obama, conservatives must settle for a “Second Choice” nominee, one with a history of weak-kneed flip flopping on issues like abortion, gay marriage, immigration, socialist health care, and fiscal constraint.
In other words, to interrupt the Marxist take-over of America, conservatives must nominate a man or woman whom is “Obama-light,” with respect to some of the major issues of the day.
How can this be happening to we the people?
What happened to ‘right-thinking’ warriors like John Bolton, Tom Tancredo, and other owners of unassailable conservative pedigree?
Why has Rick Santorum failed to round up any appreciable support? What happened to the Michele Bachmann surge that seemed so promising last spring?
Frankly, conservatives have a right—nay, make that a duty—to be upset.
Over the past few years, we have been forced to accept the likes of George H. Bush, George W. Bush, and John McCain, all whom claim to be conservative but whom think and act like liberals too damn often!
Compromise—it sucks and should be outlawed!
