The GOP Shows It's True Colors
Folks, you’re being setup. I exclude myself, because I’m not fooled by this political MacBeth.
Camp Romney may be bashing Gingrich, but there’s plenty of lipstick to go on their pig as well. We saw what the Rove-Romney machine did to Herman Cain, and we’ve watched how their media marionettes ignored and excluded Jon Huntsman. We witnessed Romney hand-maidens tell the voters of Iowa, that if Ron Paul had won the Iowa Caucus, he was to be ignored and the attention given to the runner-up.
Thus there is a pattern of deceit and subterfuge pursuant to the Republican Party hierarchy. So hellbent and determined is the GOP to have the RINO Romney get the nomination, they are willing to sabotage one of the most popular Congressman in the Republican ranks.
I’m speaking of Col. Allen West, the Congressman from FLorida. The GOP, i.e., the same people who are trying to shove Romney down our throats, in way that is reminiscent of the way they pushed McCain, have redistricted West, who is one certainly one of the most courageous Congressmen we have. Why, would they do that, you ask? Because, they want to make it hard for him to get re-elected, which is a transpicuous acknowledgment that the GOP and the party apparatchiks are not supportive of true conservatism. They are supportive of status-quo left leaning moderates who are able to deceive conservative voters. What the GOP did to Allen West is prima facie evidence of exactly what these people truly stand for.
I have said it before and it bears repeating now. The Republican hierarchy and Karl Rove were blindsided the Tea Party in 2010. They were not prepared for the American people to coalesce in support of true conservatives and reject the good ol’ boys of the party. Remember the venom and vitriol Rove, Charles Krauthammer, and others spewed on Fox News every every evening, belittling and attacking Sarah Palin. Remember Rove’s attacks on Nikki Haley and Christine O’Donnell. Recall their consternation with Sharron Angle as she sought to win Nevada.
The one thing these three women had in common is that they were Tea Party candidates. Rove and the RNC Chief Reince Priebus were furious that Tea Party conservatives in Delaware ousted Mike Castle, who was more liberal than Pennsylvania’s John Murtha. Party apparatchiks in Pennsylvania tried to sabotage Pat Tommey’s early campaign as they openly admitted the reason was because they viewed Toomey as to conservative.
A bit of history. Arlen Specter unsuccessfully tried to recruit Teresa Heinz, (now wife of John Kerry), to run against Rick Santorum in his first congressional bid. Specter with leadership approval unsuccessfully tried to recruit candidates (some Democrats), to oppose Santorum. As president, George W. Bush campaigned against Pat Toomey in support of Arlen Specter. And as a show of appreciation, Specter became a Democrat.
But, I don’t want to venture to far off my point, which is that Romney is not about us, he is about the Washington insiders and the party hierarchy. Romney is not electable over Obama and everyone knows it. It is pure pollyanna to think otherwise.
As I wrote in yesterday’s Daily Rant, Romney is not inevitable – he has in truth not won anything. He spent nearly $20 million to underperform against Gingrich, and Santorum who had left the state early. He actually underperformed in New Hampshire when you take a critical look at the numbers. However, the GOP realizes that many conservatives are so fearful of Obama, that they will take their vomit bags in the voting booth with them and vote for Romney. The GOP doesn’t give a rat’s tail if it is out of loyalty or fear – they care that it is a vote in their column.
The GOP will stop at nothing to assure Romney gets the nomination and you should be asking yourself why that is? You should be thinking that if they will sabotage Allen West, how can we believe them about Romney? I personally, am both amused and nauseated listening to media marionettes and the party apparatchiks proclaim the greatness of Romney. It’s as if they believe there aren’t conservatives who know the truth of Romney. It’s as if some of us aren’t aware of the true purpose for Bush 41, Jeb Bush, and Obama’s unscheduled secret meeting at the White House, after the Alfalfa Club Banquet.
In the final analysis, I’m not saying anyone will ultimately prevail against Obama, but I am saying Romney is the last one we should stick that hope on. Because, Obama “little” is only a little different than Obama.
