What the Republicans cannot afford to do again.


Even though the economy has been recovering, it has not recovered as fast as it could.
-Regime leader Obama-

It seems every speech that Obama gives is a blame fest, blaming everyone else for his troubles. The troubles never seem to come from him, in his eyes. Troubles like the economy, which has never started to recover, if you listen to the media the way they would have reported it, if Obama had been a republican.
Since he can’t seem to take the blame for what is going on, and he can’t stop the people from blaming him, he leaves and goes on another posh vacation while the rest of us are struggling under his policies. How many has he taken so far?

Not only has Obama spent more than any other president from Washington to George W. Bush, inclusive, he has taken more vacations. The national debt under Bush, though high, was only half what it is now.

It seems every time that things start going wrong for Barry, he takes another vacation. I know that makes me KNOW without a doubt that he has no concern for the welfare of the people that he is there in Washington D.C., to serve.

Today, he is saying that every effort must be made to bring the economy back. Back from what Obama? The mess that you put it in? I have said this before, and I will probably say it again because we cannot forget this. He is changing now, only to get re elected so he can continue his destructive policies. Obama, is who he is. An American freedom hating person who was raised by an American hating father, tutored by William Ayers, domestic terrorist and groomed by his reverend Jeremiah Wright, of his church for 20 years. His agenda for this nation is not good, and it was bred into him.

But the agenda of some so called republicans isn’t good either. What the republican party needs this time is a good candidate, and there are several out there. But the good ones are being targeted by the left and others.

It didn’t take long for the rhetoric to come out against Rick Perry of Texas, after his announcement. Almost as virulent as the rhetoric was against Sarah Palin. The reason? Because they scared the left. But there are members of the so called right that are working for the same goals too. Carl Rove for one.

From an article, found at Yahoo news.com, written by Matt Latimer of the Daily Beast, he said:

Perry’s war with the Bushies
By Matt Latimer | The Daily Beast – 8 hrs ago

Just because Karl Rove is behind a plot doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t work. That we’re still talking about the former Bush aide at all is a testament to his singular tenacity.

How has he done it? The man helped elect the Pelosi Congress—it was Rove who in 2006 was in charge of holding on to GOP majorities in the House and Senate. He helped elect Barack Obama—insisting that John McCain was the only “electable” Republican in 2008 and bad-mouthing most of the others running. His indispensable support of his boss’ overspending and government bailouts even helped create the Tea Party, which has bedeviled Rove and other GOP establishment figures ever since.

And yet billionaire donors to the Republican Party seem oblivious to the record, handing Rove big, fat checks to fund his activities further. Perhaps this is because he is charming and witty, has a statistic for every occasion, never stops calling people until he gets what he wants, says all the right things about battling “them liberals,” and wallpapers himself across The Wall Street Journal’s editorial pages and Fox News Channel, where his words are rarely challenged. To his everlasting credit, Rove has truly lived up to his Bush-conferred nickname, “Turdblossom.” He can make any mess he’s involved in still smell sweet.

His brazen and transparent attacks on a leader of his own party, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, may be the greatest test yet of Rove’s remarkable resilience. Some, in fact, are starting to question if we have at last reached “the moment.” Years from now, will we look back at the 2012 primary season as the time when Rove put on his Fonzie jacket, flashed a thumbs-up sign, and then—finally—jumped the shark?

Yes, at long last, the 2012 race is actually starting to get interesting.

For years, Rove has made it a hobby of sorts to deflate conservatives more popular with the base than he is. Like any good bully, he has tended to focus on easy targets, such as Sarah Palin and Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell, piling on them as if he were hoping for a time slot next to Al Sharpton on MSNBC. So far he has (mostly) gotten away with this.

Now he and his henchmen are undertaking their most serious gamble. Rick Perry managed to shine in Texas without Rove’s permission, and now threatens to become the current Republican frontrunner without Rove’s blessing. This, Rove has decreed, must be stopped, even if his party is destroyed in the process.

The origins of the Rove grudge against Perry really matter only to a handful of people. Suffice it to say it stems from some decade-old feud over power and money. And Rove has lassoed the entire Bush family in on it. The former presidents Bush have made it a great point not to comment on the actions of their successors—Clinton and Obama, respectively. They think there is a nobility to staying out of the fray and not making things more difficult for the next commander in chief. Yet the Bushes have shown no compunction about doing just that to a fellow Republican and fellow Texan (though Perry is the only one of them actually born in the state).

While in the White House, Bush 2 and his aides regularly scoffed at Perry for reasons that were never fully clear, making fun of his syntax and intellectual prowess without any sense of irony. In 2010 the Bush family, along with Rove and Karen Hughes, undertook an unprecedented effort to kick him out of the governor’s chair, handing a crowbar to Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, whom they judged more “electable.” Perry walloped her in the GOP primary, then went on to win a historic third term in the general election by a double-digit margin. So much for electability.

But Rove is nothing if not persistent. Now he and his operatives seem to have something close to a war room against Perry, scrutinizing his every statement in an attempt to cut his young candidacy short. After Rove called Perry “unpresidential,” former Bush press secretary Tony “Ralph Malph” Fratto joined in—calling Perry, you guessed it, “unpresidential.” This was followed in quick succession by similar sentiments from a former Rove aide, Pete “Potsie” Wehner. Meanwhile, two “unnamed” Bush aides (wonder who they could be?) issued the following warning to The New York Times: “If you’re really trying to be the nominee and want to go the distance, you just don’t want the former president of the United States and his people working against you.” (Then again, that’s what the Bushes told Kay Bailey Hutchison.)

Whatever the rationale, this is truly a bizarre thing for the Bushies to do. Openly attacking a legitimate Republican contender used to be considered bad form, especially in the noblesse oblige world of Greenwich and Kennebunkport from which the Bushes actually hail. And it may finally sever the already tenuous link between the Bush era and the conservative base of the GOP.

We cannot, as Conservatives, allow our candidate to be picked for us, like McCain was in the last election. That would be a good way for Obama to get re-elected. The Republicans cannot afford to do that again.

I mean, we don’t go into elections to lose do we? We did last time. This time, American’s can’t afford that kind of action. But watch Obama, he is going to be running on his record, the way he says it would be, if it wasn’t for the Obstructionists called the Republicans.

May God bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country.
God, Bless America. Bless Americans. And Bless us to start using more common sense.

    I’m not quite sure what all the fuss is about Karl Rove and the “Bushies” “attacking” Rick Perry. Republicans aren’t a monolith which marches lockstep to the same beat. There are differences between Republicans and divisions within the Party, just as there are among Democrats and within the Democratic Party. I mean, how is this “war” between Perry and the “Bushies” any different from the fierce rivalry between Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama during the Democratic primaries during the ’08 election cycle? No, we conservatives shouldn’t let our candidate be picked for us but neither should we help, in any way, the liberals to create a crisis out of normal power politics.
    <reply from Robert: The only thing I see wrong with all this, is that it is how we got McCain. We got divisions among our ranks, which the democrats took advantage of, and we let them. The democrats on the other hand have to machine in place to have this happen again. But, if it was the other way around, we don’t have the machine in place to stop it. That is why this one is important. The republicans have to watch what is going on so we don’t let someone who shouldn’t get the nomination for the GOP get it. Rick Perry would be good. Herman Kane would be good. I do think Michelle Bachmann would be good. I do not think Romney would be. And the democrats would love him getting it I think.
