I’ll fully admit why he lost. He’s not a Conservative. Like Bush, he’s done a ton of crap that wasn’t Conservative. After 8 years of RINO in the White House, not even the firebrand of Sarah Palin could get him through the door.
It did get Palin’s name on the minds of Conservatives though. Should the Obama Administration prove to be as useless as all Democrats have been over the past 8 years, she has a name which in 2012 could get her over the top on her own merit.
The media showed us all its cards. They went after Palin on every single thing that could possibly have hurt her efforts and it slid off like eggs on Teflon. What does Palin have to do for the next 4 years? Be a successful governor in her state. That’s it.
Now we’ve got stories in the news of mystery staffers for McCain BLAMING Palin for his loss. Are they serious? The only reason Obama didn’t get ALL the electoral votes for the entire nation can be summed up in 2 words, Sarah Palin.
Unfortunately, there are a big steaming group of cowards at the reigns of the Republican party who are AFRAID to be Conservative. They think we need to be MORE moderate, we need to ACT like Liberals. Fiscal Conservatism is dead, Bush killed it, McCain killed it, all the elected Senators and Senatourettes who gave Bush a blank checkbook backed by MY ASS – KILLED IT.
We need to purge the party of these wishy washy little cowards, vote them out, tear them down, and get real Conservatives back at the helm. We did it 15 years ago, why the hell can’t we do it again? This time – hopefully the attention span of America won’t be so short.
Seriously, we have a devout Socialist as President Elect, and the best we could offer to challenge him was Socialist Lite with a slight dusting of Conservatism from the great white north.
I’d say Palin 2012, but honestly, I don’t believe the Right is capable of recovering from this fuckup in a mere 4 years, as it only took them until Clinton left office to forget HOW THEY GOT THERE. They’d need to grow some balls – and the only elected Conservative with any philosophical fortitude is back at work in Alaska.
