McCain blames Palin, Palin is out in the cold, Conservatives blame anyone but themselves.
The knives are out!
When an election defeat comes as this one does – Conservatives have to blame someone – anyone, but, of course, not themselves.
Well that is what they are saying at this moment in time. They even preach that if we were all Reaganites all would be well – I do snigger at that one. Reagan – the man who grew government to huge proportions – but also gave the neocons their place in society. Blugh!
They spin Reagan as if her was some kind of god! Look at his record – read it, see what he actually did – very little in the grand scheme of things. He was the US’ Thatcher – so I say no more.
Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council told CNN that conservatives need to take back control of the GOP if the party is to return to its winning ways.
“Moderates never beat conservatives. We’ve seen that in past elections,” he said.
What happened on Tuesday, then? Was it a mirage? Didn’t the so called left of left winger win? Even though we really know that Obama is a moderate – the neocons cannot admit that they lost to a moderate, a neocon has been in power for 8 years, and destroyed the US economy – and Tony Perkins goes on about moderates – I do wish they knew how stupid they sound.
Of course the neocons will turn their gaze toward, not Palin, but McCain – he will be the one who really lost them the election. What these neocons seem to forget – as McCain aptly put it “They didn’t allow you (the electorate) to choose”. The electorate chose Barack Obama – and not out of fear, but out of hope. A very Christian thing to do – but we do know that neocons are not Christians – God knows what they are but I for one do not.
“There was clearly no mandate to shift the country to the left on social issues,” Perkins said. “What Tuesday was, was a fact that people wanted change, and it’s a rejection of a moderate view.”
I know, how about this? Tony Perkins should run for elected office? He should be the one to become leader of the GOP – I am sure the American people would thank him for it.
