Rush Confirms One Of My Fears
Posted by bmac on January 15, 2008
Well, at least I know I’m not crazy.This is a great transcript from Rush Limbaughs radio show, in which he addresses the fact that Republicans are deliberately moving center-left, in an attempt to “redefine the party.” You gotta read the whole thing, because Rush is brilliant, but here’s one little piece, and the quotes are from Newt Gingrich.
don’t know this. It’s just a wild guess, but based on this comment, “The Reagan era is over. The George W. Bush era is over. We’re at a point in time we’re about to start redefining, as a number of people have started talking…” Yes, they are. Every one of these Republicans is starting to talk about redefining the party, and this has been going on since the early days of this, not just now. If you recall, all during last year, I told you this was my big concern: that Reaganism and conservatism were going to be redefined so as to fit the mold of whoever these guys on our primary roster are.
There you go. We are on a very slippery slope to a one party system. Rush really hits the nail on the head with this:
Is their objective, for whatever reason — sour grapes, they don’t think they can win as Republicans because they’re really not Republicans. Is this the objective here, to redefine (or maybe ruin) the Republican Party? Even so, the coalition of Democrats, independents, moderates, the Jell-Os, that is not a coalition. They don’t have a coalition. McCain doesn’t have one. Huckabee doesn’t have one. They want to transform the party into a center-left party like these so-called conservative parties in Europe, and to do that, they’ve gotta say, “The Reagan era is over,”
Scary stuff. You know, I’ve sat and watched the last four years, as Republicans have remained silent as Bush was getting blamed for Katrina, remained silent as Harry Reid said the war is lost, remained silent as Chavez called Bush the devil. I thought maybe they were just letting the Dems dig their own hole. I’m not so sure anymore. The Dems have provided so much political fodder for Republicans to capitalize on, that the fact they failed to do so is…..well it seems intentional.
If Thompson can’t pull this nomination out of his ass, we’re in deep trouble folks. A Democrat or a RINO in the White House is gonna be disastrous for this country, and could very well be the final nail in the coffin for the Republican party as we know it.
On the plus side, maybe we can start a Conservative Party.
We’re gonna need it.
