I was happy to hear Rush today for a bit because, as I predicted, we would start getting the true analysis of what went wrong for us. Then, I read Michelle Malkin’s answer to all the pity e-mails she’s been getting regarding last night’s results.
She was right. We simply stand for what we believe in and scream from the rooftops our opposition to basically everything Obama will stand for. Simple enough, right?
Well there’s one part that I wish she would have embellished on (perhaps Ann Coulter’s column released tonight will touch on it as I heard her on talk radio this morning). We realize we can truly never trust the media ever again.
We learn to recognize the warning signs like the NY Times who referred to McCain many times as a “maverick” before the primary. Then, we call them out on it.
We learn our lessons and never forget them. One major lesson Americans keep forgetting is that we are asking for major Democratic wins in possible landslide victories (like the one last night) when we run a mild Republican as opposed to a true conservative.
Barry Goldwater lost in a huge defeat. Bob Dole lost in a defeat. And McCain was rejected by America as well. In fact, McCain would have done much worse had it not been for Sarah Palin.
Bush did three great things for our country. First, he gave us tax cuts. Secondly, he did not cave into Democrat whining when putting forth his national security or domestic policies which kept us safe. Then, we got a couple of great Supreme Court Justices out of it. But, he also did some very horrible things as well. These include massive spending, support of amnesty, and support of the bailout.
These things were also supported by John McCain. In addition, he threw in McCain-Feingold to boot.
I thank GW Bush for keeping me safe.
I thank John McCain for serving us in Vietnam and for Sarah Palin.
But, as conservatives, I am ready for both of them to be gone.
Next time, the media will not be selecting our candidate for us. It is time many of us come together and work to make Sarah Palin our front-runner for 2012, a real conservative as her running mate, and a strict selection of strong conservatives to run for Congress.
You cannot sell out conservative ideals, Christians, and fiscal conservatives without losing an election in a landslide and carrying an “R” at the end of your name.
Finally, you thank God we didn’t have McCain who would have worked hard to appease the insane left in Congress, leading us to further failure and giving us two terms of Hillary landslides once the country felt the disaster. The only thing is, Republicans would have been blamed.
This way; at least, the country feels disasters under liberals in both the Executive and Legislative branches. Then we pounce back with Palin in 2012.
Until then, we support eachother and pull through it.
