It is going to be here before you know it. I am talking about the election of course. From time to time I will be commenting on this upcoming event and its importance.
election of Barak Obama can be laid at the feet of the Republican
Party. Obama was a part of what you could call a “perfect storm.” First,
he was black. This was a big deal to the media. Second, he was
essentially unknown. Third, he was unvetted. The Republicans left that
to Hillary Clinton and she failed big time. Finally, and this is the
most important thing, the Republicans nominated a candidate who could
not win. This final thought will be the theme of this column.
there are several individuals seeking the nomination to run against
Obama. In my view, all are qualified to be President, especially when
compared to what we have now. The problem becomes one of being electable
to the masses. I saw a poll recently that showed any generic Republican
would beat Obama 55% to 37%. While that is encouraging, it is also a
temptation to sit back and let the election happen. That is how
Republicans lose elections.
Republicans need to nominate a candidate who can win in the general
election. Those among you who are ultra conservative and say that unless
my candidate is conservative enough I will just sit this election out.
To those who say my candidate has to be more liberal and reflect my more
liberal views or I will just stay home, you are essentially
guaranteeing the re-election of this complete failure who is destroying
doesn’t take a mental giant to figure out that we are headed in the
wrong direction and that unless the ship of state is righted, we are in
serious trouble. Obama, along with Reid, Pelosi, Schumer, Frank, and all
the other hard core Democrats have to be sent home for the good of this
country. To me that means ABO, anybody but Obama.
the next presidential term, new Supreme Court Judges will probably need
to be named. If for no other reason, we need to get rid of this bunch
in Washington. Our very Constitution is at stake. Unless the Supreme
Court throws out Obamacare, business will continue to be slow to hire
and expand. Unless a new approach to regulation is enacted, business
will stay on the sidelines or possibly even move to a more friendly
climate for their success. The change Obama sought is here and it is
here’s the deal. Pick a candidate and work for that candidate, but, and
this is a big but, if your candidate is unsuccessful, work to elect the
nominee of the Republican Party. I sincerely believe the very future of
America depends on getting rid of Barak Obama. He needs to be sent back
to Chicago to continue his work as a community organizer, whatever that
those who are influential in the choosing of the next Republican
nominee, please remember the importance of this election. It is not just
business as usual. Let’s pick someone who can win a national election.
Someone who can appeal to the so-called independents. Remember the 40,
40, 20 rule. 40% will vote for Republicans, 40% will vote for Democrats,
and a majority of the 20% will decide who our next President will be.
I believe. If the American electorate re-elects Barak Obama, we deserve
the results of that election and it is not going to be pretty. In fact
it may the ugliest chapter in our history. Sometimes it is good to be
seventy years old.
am grateful to those who would put themselves out there as candidates.
To those among you whose candidate is not selected to be the nominee,
please work as hard for the final candidate of the party to make sure
this mess is fixed. It has been said before but this time it is truer
than ever. This is the most important election in our history. Let’s
make this happen.
