Is 'Not Obama' Enough?

Yes, those are the principles that I helped form the Tea Party in my town. After the successful 2010 election that took the House, many devolved into things that had little to do with the constitution or fiscal responsibility and more to do Controlling others behavior. Abortion is awful, SSM is just not normal, and I would like people to behave but the Left is focused on what we eat and the Right on how we act when none of these problems can be addressed if we do not win elections and have an economy where people can put food on the table and gas in their tanks. If you really read the constitution, it's intent is freedom even if that freedom allows people to do really destructive things not to restrict in accordance with which ever group is in power. We need to maintain our principles but we also need to win in order to support those ideas.

Nobody listens. With Tea Party loosing most rational supporters with their pushing unqualified candidates and far far right positions, me being among them. I do not recognize their version of conservatives. Republican's need to understand that the economy is the biggest problem not SSM, abortion, weed, global warming, etc. or other diversions created by the Democrats, for working class and other middle class to focus on other than the real problems. Focus on solutions to this basic need in this country - real jobs, Real healthcare, real energy policy. I do not support any of the diversions but it is time to go to work and solve the true problems.

This author worked very hard to defeat Romney. It is conservatism according to Steve. Steve got what he wanted-Romney was defeated, Obama was elected. Now he wants to rid the RNC of all who disagree with his narrow view and if he secedes, we will lose again. Just who's side is he on?

My Response to Mitt Romney

It is obvious that this writer did not hear the question or the answer given in context. Romney was ask if Bill Clinton's womanizing should be a factor in the 2016 race. His response was that Hillary be judged on her own past not her husbands as she was not responsible for his girl chasing activities. This writer was so happy Romney lost as many other conservatives so now he should have no complaints About Obama or his heir Hillary. Are you going to help the Dems win again?
I see that you seem to think that no one who isn't "Tea Party" is a RINO or not conservative like Romney who you had no use for- so you and many others brought us Obama. You have a right to your opinion but leading the charge against the Repub Estabishment is not going to win and keep the dems in charge just like 2012. How is that working for you. I was a Tea Party organizer in 2010 and after the successful election, I was no longer welcome as the other organizer, a Catholic. I am a Mormon. Sorry Michelle, they wouldn't like you either. My group assisted in keeping McCaskill in office with that idiot they supported. I believe the Tea Party can be effective but they need to understand that unless we WIN we will get 2012 over and over.
I fear Neil is correct but it's not only the receiver of benefits that do not care, it is the many more who voted for Obama from the middle and upper middleclass that receive no benefits, actually voted against their own interest. Why, I do not understand stand but many are friends and relatives of mine and when ask they merely say what a great man Obama is so I have no answer as to why people care less about being lied to, manipulated by government press, up seems to be down.
I completely am against abortion except for medical and few other exceptions but can we really stop people from being too stupid to get pregnant, do not want children, etc. Perhaps we need to just let them have at it - natural selection in biology may become that after time these people will merely "deselect" themselves from the gene pool. May sound harsh but Ginsberg stated that the purpose of abortion was to eliminate the "unacceptable" portions of society. I thought it was awful when she said it but maybe she was correct - maybe we cannot save those people who have no regard for human life even their own children. Committing geocide on your own kind does not insure much of a future for the pro choice population. Pro life will win.
Broad generalizations about the public schools are not helpful. Yes, there are many schools that are not up to standards or outright awful but that does not mean all of them or even the majority. I am subsitute teaching in my area and the schools I have worked are all excellent with good kids, devoted teachers, lots of help for kids that struggle for whatever reason. So the concept that since some schools are bad and the average test scores and grad rates are brought down due to them is just not the right approach. The poor schools need to be identified and corrected and the schools that are performing need to be left alone. I would love to see how the schools rate if you left out the problem schools in the averaging.

Media Bias and the 47 Percent

Romney is fighting a two front war. Obama and his media plus his Right flank. No matter how perfectly awful the economy is or dangerous situation in foreign policy which much of it lies at the feet of Obama - according to the right he just isn't perfect enough for them. Hello, there are just two men in the Contest - it will be President Romney or President Obama. I do not require a perfect man for President but a competent one. This isn't a Prom King election. Pick a side. Romney/Ryan 2012
