They have no loyalty to the other conservatives that live in other parts of this nation, or who are working for some other conservative than the one they themselves have chosen to support. If their own chosen conservative loses, they want to pick up their marbles and go home, or throw in with the big-wigs! They do not support the convention system with its grass-roots-based orderly pattern of decision-making which mirrors our democratic-republican form of government.
These guys are into top-down control of the little people nearly as much as the socialists are!
I have a little group of young grassrooters I supervise, and they were feeling a little down at how the coronation of Romney was beginning in earnest, so I posted this to them on Friday morning - and they are feeling much better, and have a skip in their step once again.
If you have need of a little encouragement while you keep working for Newt, I hope this helps atleast a litte.
"TRUE COLORS TIME"
If you listened closely to Sarah tonight on Levins program, she was pretty much endorsing Romney. I suspect she will hold her cards, wont jump into the fray until the convention, where she will get maximum exposure for her particular agenda. And then she will play the good citizen role and support Romney. Ive been worried about her since she showed up so ungraciously during the summer to rain on the parade of some of the more conservative candidates
The same applies to her as everyone else... Not fighting, not helping Newt right now, is the same as voting for Obama.
I want you to think about something... if all these people, who call themselves conservative, who want to be thought of as conservative, all joined together from Limbaugh to Sarah to Bachmann, and all the others and in one voice said, No, we wont, and worked their hearts out for Newt, starting this moment right now - instead of CYAing it; there would be no doubt who the next President would be. It would be Newt. It will still be Newt. But look what they are doing, look at the maneuvering, the shifting, the caving. In the space of a week the conservative world political and otherwise has become a cluster of Bart Stupak clones.
Even Santorum, what did he do? Faced with possible/probable defeat, he caved, he ran home. He didnt like the amount of debt he was accumulating. He couldnt see the math allowing him victory. So. He. Quit.
How does Mark Levin any of them ever complain about or criticize Boehner again? Or McConnell, or the Republican establishment? They are just as weak and spineless, just as compromised now.
True Colors Time.
America flickers, a lighthouse about to be engulfed by darkness. People are folding caving collapsing all around us, and we are being chided for not being realists
Realists on the banks of the Delaware would have tried to convince those First Patriots it was too cold, too dark, too much ice; the pragmatic thing was to wait for another day when conditions were better, the risks not so great
Exactly who is behaving like George Washington right now? And who are the cowards?
Four years from now, they will look back and call these times carefree, like the play of children. It will never be easier than it is right now. Next time, it will be harder. Where will the repurposed courage come from then?
It is always going to require biting down hard while terror circuits through you facing annihilation; not facing impossible mathematical odds, facing annihilation.
Who will there be then to face down the kind of raw fear that cakes the back of the throat and jellies out muscles and nerves? Who? And where will they be found?
They have Newt now... experienced, battle hard, for the most part fearless, doesnt know how to quit. There is no one else now; there never was. There will be no one else the next time, if there is a next time; because next time, not even a Newt will be sufficient.
The fainting conservatives see the GOP establishment, its power, everywhere and deep, arrayed around them, able to twist events and turn people to their will the same way that American soldier saw the British fleet in Boston Harbor - as if all of London was afloat before his eyes.
Yet they carried on. A rag tag bunch, one step ahead of annihilation. It should be a song in your hearts by now.
They carried on and today I am writing to you about them. And their True Colors Time. I know everyone around us is fainting, finding excuses for fainting, trying to make their fainting seem purposed - or holy - pragmatic. But, they are still just fainting.
NEWT GINGRICH... The Last Conservative Standing. He Deserves Your Very Best.
They were naturally resistant to the cold, and their night vision was vastly improved over that of others, and as for ice, they could slide right along, ever upright.
They'd marched barefoot into Valley Forge ~ and they could have marched back up the way just as barefoot.
Their brothers, cousins, fathers and sons had fought bravely in the Flying Geese to protect Washington and his Army as they retreated from New York.
They never surrendered.
Nice vanity there.
I don’t agree with your prediction of how this thing plays out, nor was there a thing “ungracious” about the 2008 VP candidate weighing in and testing the water at any time or in any way, nor do you have the knowledge of what anybody else is doing in their own plan to stop the advance of progressivism whether implemented by Obama or Romney, to say what they are or aren’t doing is the same as voting for Obama.
However, your vanity post holds the key to understanding what Levin, Rush, Hannity, Beck, Bolling, Cavuto and Kudlow et al- all these allegedly free-market conservative talking heads who have gone for Romney and abandoned the field prematurely - they all have something in common that the founders of the country had - military experience - the founders having it in the French and Indian War and later during the Revolutionary war - and the alleged conservative talkers lacking any of it.
