A Little Taste of Reality
Yesterday, today and tomorrow’s worst kept secret is the talk of a “brokered” Republican Convention. Basically that means that no one in the current field has been able to ‘lie’ themselves into the leadership slot. That’s because the Conservative wing of the Republican Party will no longer fall for the Establishment rhetoric that has brought us to where we are today. Bipartisanship, consensus and compromise aren’t selling well in the Heartland or anywhere else it is being touted. Sorry Mittens, this is your Achilles Heal. More window dressing for the First Loser.
Santorum, Gingrich and Paul should learn that getting ‘high centered’ on issues like abortion, health care, school lunches and contraception are NOT, NOT, NOT what Conservatives of all stripes are focused on.
NO, while Medicare (and the bastardization of it) has created more than a $600 billion hole in our annual non-Budget, it is expected to balloon to $1trillion by 2025. Medicare among other out of control spending issues will be one of the jobs of the next administration, not the only job. Time to move on folks. Every minute we are perched on this ‘abortion albatross’ is a minute we’re not talking about what this ‘jug-eared’ Community-organizer-in-chief and his cadre of Communist/Marxist/Socialists have done and are planning to do to our Republic.
Taxing and Regulating our economy to death, jeopardizing our defenses by gutting our military might, plundering our children’s future on pie-in-the-sky alternative energy, forcing the private sector into unionization and the accompanying unsustainable pension and benefit plans, demonizing our energy superiority with out of this world regulation and catering to despots, dictators and tyrants is just a taste of what we should be debating. Not what little Jimmy had for lunch at school today.
You want a taste of what a brokered convention will look like, you might get the postings of the 3 candidates speeches (Mr. Tinfoil Hat was busy somewhere else) and the one of Sarah Palin at CPAC. Now I don’t want to go out on a limb here, but if anyone thinks Jeb Bush, Chris Christie or Mitch Daniels will bring this convention to their feet like Sarah, well I want to know what they’re smoking.
