I read this story on the Breitbart website and I was disheartened, to say the least. I'm from Illinois and in this last election, we got our clocks cleaned. I've heard all the versions of why we lost most of our seats here in Illinois, and the White House. Election fraud, it's Romney's fault, he didn't make enough of a case, yada yada yada. I still go back to the one fact nobody can dispute and that is the fact that 3 million Conservatives did not vote. Romney just wasn't perfect enough for them so these co called "conservatives" didn't vote, the Dems won, WE LOST, and now we have 4 more years of Obama!
It should be noted for those that haven't realized this yet, you don't get everything you want when you are not the majority party. Period! Grover Norquist, one of the favorites of the Tea party (which frankly has always boggled my mind considering all of Grover's nefarious radical Muslim connections!), even concedes this fact:
“Well you have to look at where we started and what we could have ended up with,” Norquist answered.
When I read the above story on Breitbart, I cringed. I read it a second time from the perspective of a Democrat and I must say, the "institutional left" really doesn't have to do a thing to win elections with this kind of reporting! If I was a Democrat, I would be smiling from ear to ear and I would hope this kind of "useful" reporting continues!
I suggest Michelle Bachmann, and the "more than 20 House Republicans who were considering unseat Boehner" and that "bailed" and voted Speaker Boehner back in, better watch their backs. These so called Conservatives are not happy with these votes! Further, I read somewhere that Allen West was nominated as Speaker and that truly surprised me. Remember this:
"I think what we have to ask ourselves is 'if you're telling me that I need to vote no against the Boehner plan' then what am I voting for?" Rep. Allen West (R-FL) said on The Laura Ingraham Show.
"I'm going to stand with this Boehner plan and once again, if the folks who one minute they're saying that I'm their 'tea party hero' and what, three or four days later 'I'm a tea party defector.' That kind of schizophrenia, I'm not going to get involved in it."
I send this email below again to remind people who invoke the name of Andrew Breitbart that Andrew Breitbart truly detested Conservatives turning on each other. He knew how it felt and how damaging it is. I'm also again including Andrew's UNITY speech again where he said:
"This is my war cry for 2012. You need to join me in my war against the institutional left."
"This is not your mother's Democratic Party... duh! John Podesta and George Soros? This is not your mother's Democratic Party You know whose party it is? ...I have a thesis about who we're fighting against on the hard left... [In college] I had no idea these [left-wing academics] people were actually serious about the malarkey they were teaching. The post-structuralist, politically correct garbage."
"They try to portray you in the worst possible light... and when I travel around the United States meeting people in the Tea Party who care -- black, white, gay, straight -- anyone that's willing to stand next to me to fight the progressive left, I will be in that bunker, and if you're not in that bunker 'cause you're not satisfied with this candidate, more than shame on you. You're on the other side!"
You can watch the entire speech here:
There a great expression of immense wisdom: If you don't like what you're getting, change what you're doing!
It's time Conservatives stick together and do what Andrew asked, let's all get in that bunker and beat the institutional left! We need to learn to do what the left does really well, stick together and support each other. They NEVER turn on each other, NEVER! As we charge on the battlefield of 2013, let's point the arrows at the Democrats, not at each other. If you truly feel you can no longer support the Republican Party then please, please, please, leave the Republican party and form your own party, and I wish you well. Tearing up this party only leads to victory for the Democrats!
If you like the expression by Andrew, "Truth isn't mean, it's truth", then I suggest you read the email below. Here's some real truth about Andrew Breitbart and it is clear, he "hated" backstabbing among Conservatives.
