Conservatives are right in asking, "Which GOP presidential candidate could survive, let alone have victory over, the Obama machine?" But maybe the strategy for victory lies in a unique plural solution.
Last week, I concluded my recommendation of the book "Seven Miracles That Saved America" by noting: "I also believe we need an eighth miracle to save America -- a providential and pivotal moment that spares our country from falling off into four more years of the Obama transformational abyss."
Here is what I believe that eighth miracle would look like. It's not a single person, but a group of people, a formidable team -- brought together by an unparalleled idea and unbridled patriots -- that ensures the ousting of our incumbent president and the restoration of our country.
As a six-time undefeated world karate champion, I, like any long-term titleholder, will tell you that I obtained such a status by (among other things) mastering my opponents' strategies, not approaching every competition the same way, and by leveraging my foes' weaknesses and strengths against my own.
In a column a few months back, I introduced a martial arts practice that does just that; the art of jujitsu is to use an opponent's weight and strength to your advantage. I believe that this is what the GOP candidates and anti-Obama citizens must do in the 2012 presidential election.
This presidential race is unlike any before it. It is unique on many fronts, not only by the size and formidableness of the Goliath in the White House but also by the unique wisdom, experience and skill set of each potential GOP presidential nominee.
How many times have you heard from others, "There are strong elements I like in all of those running for the GOP nomination"? (During one debate, even the candidates themselves were splicing one another together as possible vice presidential nominees.) You may not want to see all of them sitting in the Oval Office, but wouldn't you want to see most help the country by serving in some position in the next president's administration?
