A Nuclear Option for Tampa

I guess I’ve pouted enough. Since my candidates have been ridden out, I don’t much care who “wins” along the GOP primary trail. Seems the best thing would be if 2 or 3 or even all four of the retreads carry on right to the convention. Who knows what will happen there? Redemption can happen any where, any time.

For now, put me among the undecideds but don’t lump me in with the clueless. It isn’t that hard to figure out. The insiders stabbed the outsiders in the back, again. That is the only type of gratitude the morally vacant understand. The establishment treats the outsider, tea party crowd like the natives in Iraq treated their American liberators: “Thanks a lot; now take a hike.”

The establishment GOP is not about to let any of the unwashed challenge their, umm, status and position. Cocktails at 7, black tie, invitation only and please do not ask Mr. Will to sign any autographs. The RINO sum-beaches would rather lose with a club member than win with one of “them.”

Clearing the decks is what the RINO GOP does for its next in line. They think they are on a smooth glide-path (again) for one of theirs to go up against the socialist, a narcissist with billions of dollars to insure his continued rule over a country he dislikes. With four more years, it would be more to his liking. Pray, patriots.

Standing in Barry’s way are three white-bread quackers, all of whom have shown a love of doing big things with big government. Oh yeah, there’s one 76 year old old bat-guana crazy crank in the mix. Think of him as a three time loser. For me, he is now one of my useful idiots, sucking up votes and air time right up to August in Tampa.

Despite their best efforts, there is trouble in RINOland. While several serious outsiders have been killed off, the grassroots of the GOP base is more than restless. In the rush to end the primary season early, there’s been a lot of really dirty pool. The grassroots isn’t happy about that and now, a former Speaker of the House has his back up over cramdown 2012. He’s talking tough and he talks tough like nobody else. The base is rallying to Newt Gingrich because he is talking like an outsider who doesn’t give two hoots in hades what the establishment thinks. Does Newt really mean it? That is what we need to find out. We need a lengthy primary season so the voters can watch to see if indeed Newt Gingrich comes through the fire a more perfect conservative.

Take it to Tampa. . . that’s how I’m thinking. The RINO RNC, the MSM and sadly even much of the conservative blogosphere helped chase out the outsider candidates. They all had their reasons. So let the mostly hollow GOP debates continue and let these remaining club members continue to split the primary votes. I hope none of them get to the required 1,144 delegates. I hope by the time the convention is done, RINO blood is all over the floor. I hope the Bushies are shocked. I hope Speaker Boehner cries his eyes out and I want to see a shot of Leader McConnell looking like a deer caught in the hunter’s spotlight. I want to see constitutional delegates in a chain marching through the aisles, flipping the bird to the insiders.

A nuclear convention. . . even a low born outsider can dream.

  1. I like that, TG, “undecided doesn’t mean clueless.”

    American Thinker had a good analysis, talking about the “roar” the Establishment GOP is ignoring, and the MSM is trying to silence.

  2. Let us not choose our president in haste, lest we be left to repent at leisure. If there are overwhelming qualities present in one, time and struggle will validate them. There are more paths to the presidency than a rowboat in December, right? Personally, I don’t believe a brokered convention will be necessary, but maybe that is just my optimism, fooling with my inner cynic. Would not it be lovely if the electorate had any clue about elections, precincts, delegates or even modern history?

  3. As a die-hard Perry fan I too want RINO blood all over the floor… starting with Boehner’s and McConnell’s.
    Boehner is a liar. “Oh if we can’t repeal ocare we’ll defund it”. Sure. In October the CR he sent over had 23 BILLION DOLLARS in it for the implementation of ocare… this is AFTER the Supremes agreed to hear it and the p***y is still throwing $$$ at it. I want Boehner primaried more than I want to wake up tomorrow.
    and McConnell is not only a p***y but a fool as well.
    “rather lose with a club member than win with one of ‘them'”… beautifully put. How very sad for so very maany of us that it is true.
    Any takers on a bet that they are already lining up someone to toss in if there is a brokered convention? Jeb Bush? That stellar constituionist Mitch Daniels? Mr. Global Warming Chriss Christie?
    I’ll bet they are. They’ve teamed up today with the evangelicals to throw $$$ at Santorum to keep him in the fray longer. IMO they are right up there with little barry… absolutely nothing is beneath them.

    • I would want the three outsiders that the GOP doesn’t want to fight for a conservative and none of the above you listed is imo that guy, I absolutely would love a Rubio consensus or my favorite guy of all Lt Col Allen West….LOL…..that was would twist the head of all the elites because nobody but nobody tells the truth like that man!

      • Not one of them would be MY choice…those are the names I hear being bandied about on talk radio. Also remember that as Perry was about to toss his hat in the ring “someone” sent the RINO Supreme Jeb Bush up to NJ to “talk” to Christie.
        Rubio has very young children and if I were him and had watched what the LSM did to Palin’s family I would think twice about risking that with my own kids.
        I am also a fan of Allen West. He had me when I heard him talking about little barry and he said “I really can’t stand the guy”. Heh.

  4. A comment was made on the site which we here refer to as “banned-a-monium” re if there were to be a brokered convention and the nominee came out of nowhere said nominee would not have time to put adequate staff et all in place in order to wage a viable campaign… unless said support were to be surepticiously put in place in advance of Tampa. Oh no…there I go again with my little tinfoil hat.
    anyone who, like me, was completely taken by surprise re Rick Perry and Fox News’ total blackout of him go here:

    I am angry beyond all measure.

    • I had noticed the blackout too, it didn’t make sense, now it does. We rarely look at FOX now, stopped two weeks before the 08 election as it became clear that the folks there were going to make it be okay for Obama.

      They are definitely moving left, not center. And they’ll continue to lose credibility as viewers recognize how many “contributors” they have on who are of the Left.

      Watched a few minutes this morning and caught that person Kohn. Without knowing who she was (now I know), I realized she was definitely left. Everything she said was negative towards our side, it will be hard for the few decent and genuine people left at FOX to put up with her. The ratings will slide downward as people see more of this on FOX.

      I don’t even mind that a person has opposing views, I mind that they cover it up, and therefore are outright dishonest. Passing agenda and opinion off as fair and balanced news – once again a media outlet is being taken over by the left.

  5. I kept watching FOX till Beck left and after that only sporadically.
    There’s an article up tonight over on biggov about how the “establishment” is currently casting about for yet another potential candidate. They have obviously figured out that there’s at least an even chance that their boy isn’t going to be anointed by the end of next week. Heh. The chatter is about RINO Daniels, RINO Christie and Paul Ryan.
    I think it would be all sorts of fun, if we actually were to wind up with a brokered convention, for somebody to toss out (wait for it…) Scott Walker’s name! Then we could all watch Trumpka develop an instant aneurism and we wouldn’t be subjected to looking at his angry pig-like face ever again. Tee Hee.
    My prayers are still for a Perry miracle.

  6. The problem is that we don’t have a small government conservative who is ready to be President in 2013. Perry was our best shot, with a track record as governor but he just wasn’t the right person at the right time.

    I don’t see how a brokered convention helps because I don’t know who we could put up with sufficient governing experience. Not to mention that too many delegates will be left vulnerable to get bought off by the GOP “establishment” to swing the race.

    If Newt can avoid self destructing and manage to win, at least he will know whose support gave him a win. Romney will owe nothing to us.

    Either way, we need keep a longer-term perspective. The left certainly does.

    • CT, I’m not so much for a brokered convention as I am a long and brutal campaign that takes more than one vote in Tampa. Through that process, I would hope Newt might be truly reborn if he is not already. If Santorum or even Mitt rise to the circumstances (doubtful), I can live with that.

      A lengthy primary has the added advantage (Vassar noted this first) of limiting the damage from Obama and the media to the GOP nominee.

  7. Awesome, TG. Now that all the good ones are out, these guys here are just tearing each other up. However, i do fear a convention getting brokered. That situation will be settled in smoke-filled backrooms, negotiated by the RINO Establishment people. They excel at that. It is somewhat funny to hear them yelping to get Mitch Daniels back in, or Chris Christie, or Jeb Bush, or even Jindal (who doesn’t really belong on that list, but I suspect they think they can control him).

    Funny how they are not yapping for Palin to get in.
