This is not a blog entry that I have looked forward to writing. Not because of the Republican defeat at the hands of Marxism, but because of the feathers in the GOP that are about to be ruffled.
Attention Country Club Republicans:
As of Nov. 4th 2008, your ideas of moving the GOP to the center are irrelevant. Your service in Party Leadership Positions is no longer needed. You can stay in the party, but sit down and shut up unless what you're about to say could be mistaken for a Reagan quote. You had your time in the sun and it has damn near destroyed everything the true conservatives worked to build.
The GOP lost it's way a number of years ago. I think when George H.W. Bush broke his “no new taxes” pledge to the American people it was the beginning. Newt Gingrich and his Contract with American held the wolves at pay for a time, but power corrupted the GOP and we became a party of barrow and spend.
To Begin Anew:
To RNC Chairman Frank Duncan – Mr. Duncan we will need your resignation by Jan 1, 2009. Please inform Deputy Chair Frank Donatelli and Co-Chair Jo Ann Davidson they will need to find new jobs as well. Victory '08 Chair Carly Fiorina please have your desk cleaned out by Thursday afternoon.
While we're at it, Mississippi Republican Party Chairman Jim Herring, you have served the state to the best of our ability for a number of years. I love you and respect you as a fine man and leader, but the time is drawing near for you to turn over the reigns of the party as well.
National Country Club Republicans:
Sen. John McCain your service to our nation has never been questioned, you are an American Hero, war veteran and senior Senator. You have served with dignity and honor. In many ways you have been true to your conservative roots in others you have damaged our party by signification measures. Your time in the sun is setting.
Gov. Mike Huckabee we well know your place in the '08 election process. Most every true conservative saw through your empty suit. A former Baptist preacher my ass. You sir are a fraud and did as much to harm the Republicans as anyone in the past election cycle. From your lowlife smear tactics against Gov. Mitt Romney to your gleeful pandering to an aging McCain in hopes for a position in his administration, your actions have been truly shameful. Your day in the sun is over.
Gov. Charlie Crist we loath you most of all. Your calculated decision to throw support behind McCain and assure his win in the GOP primary in Florida was the final nail in the coffin of the party this election cycle. Pandering for a position in the McCain administration you promised the world and delivered absolutely nothing. McCain was handed the nomination largely because of wins in New Hampshire and Florida, two states in which he was soundly defeated in the general election. Mr. Crist your day in the sun has faded.
Friends, we are taking this party back, so the Country Club Republicans can either get on the bus or get out of the way.
