Judge Jeanine Pirro proffered the question “Did Obama lie his way into the White House?” The succinct answer is: “Of course he did.” And only the most dishonest and/or the most uninformed people would argue otherwise. The weight of documented proof is as demonstrable as traffic jams on the Belt Parkway in New York.
And while there were those who actually believed his lies, there were also no small few who voted for him fully cognizant that he was lying; but for them the allure of a minority in the White House far outweighed the fact that a boorish, dishonest, Neo-Leninist was not what America needed.
I do not need to adduce the evidence of same; it is readily available. What I do want to address once again is the state of the Republican Party because, as I see it, Democrats can always be trusted to be what they are. It is the Republican establishment that we are no longer to trust.
Karl Rove and Reince Priebus are committed to turning the Republican Party into Democrat Little. They do not believe in true conservatism; they believe in left-leaning moderates who, by giving lip-service to true conservatism, through stealth and subterfuge are attempting to transmogrify the Party into one barely distinguishable from the Democrat Party.
And the fact that Chris Christie did as well as he did in the presidential polling taken at CPAC this past week validates my point. I know there will be those who will rush to say that it was only CPAC, and it doesn’t really count; blah-blah-blah.
I agree tangentially with what Newt Gingrich opined in his speech at CPAC: “But, I also came here with a warning. If our movement is primarily anti-Obama we will, in fact, reduce the number of victories we should win this fall. If we spend the next three years being anti-Hillary, we will virtually guarantee her election.”
But not for the reasons you might expect.
The movement of We the People (not to be confused with the Rove/GOP/RNC movement) must not be focused on Obama to the extent that we are willing to accept any Republican the Rove establishment promotes as being worthy of our support. We must focus on not repeating the mistakes of 2008 and 2012. We must replicate what we did in 2010 that brought We the People of America historic victories.
Our movement is a movement of the people whose views of a smaller, less intrusive government, and the Constitutional right of individual States to self-determine within the construct of the Constitution, are best defined by Tea Party groups and candidates.
I agree with Newt pursuant to our focus on Hillary. Hillary is the boogie-man – or boogie-woman, if you will -- that the political novices are going apoplectic about. She is the boogie-woman who has the ill-informed already giving voice to page one, paragraph one of the “How To Elect The Wrong Person Handbook” which is used to convince the easily convinced that if they do not vote for the Republican loser the Democrat loser will win.
For the nation and for true conservatives there is much on the line in the 2014 and 2016 elections. But that doesn’t mean we “get stupid” and allow ourselves to be convinced to compound what has taken place over the past six years in both sides of Congress.
I am a hardcore, intractable Christian Conservative. I am sick of people like the massively untrustworthy John Boehner (et al.) who pontificate pursuant to Ronald Reagan. They are nothing like Ronald Reagan, and in truth they never were.
They parrot on about President Reagan, because they believe doing same is an expedient means to an end, i.e., either getting elected or reelected.
And they will continue to do so as long as voters buy their duplicitous dishonesty.
John Bolton is right that Obama is the biggest security risk to America, but it is the willful desire of We the People to be misled that is the true long-term threat to America.
I view the Republican establishment in the same context the Apostle Peter referenced “False Teachers” in 2 Peter 2:18,19: “For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh…19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption…”
