Out of the Ashes

While tonight is certainly a depressing night for the Republican Party, one thing it clearly was not was a defeat for conservatism. That's because the McCain campaign never gave conservatism a chance. His opponent, the most liberal candidate ever, consistently talked about middle class tax cuts and catching Osama Bin Laden. That's because even liberals know that you better talk a conservative game, at least in part,if you want to get elected.

There's no doubt that this was a terrible defeat, but it could have been worse. The Republicans retained enough seats to filibuster, and filibuster they must for the next two years. If we as conservatives do the right thing, we can turn this temporary defeat into long term victory.

As for now it's time for us to go, and pay the price for spending like drunken sailors just like Democrats do. Not to mention getting involved in numerous scandals, just like Democrats do. Thanks Messrs Foley, Craig, and Stevens. While I continuously rail at the double standard in the dinosaur media, there's no doubt that the public holds Republicans to a higher standard than Democrats. That's as it should be, because we are a cut above.

The first order of business is for us to get back to our conservative roots, and tell the moderates that they have cost us enough elections for one century. The 2010 race for congress begins tomorrow. We need a grass roots conservative movement to find good candidates to run in the primary and general election. We need a leader to step up like Nixon did between the 1964 Goldwater defeat and the 1966 Congressional elections, when Republican gains were made heading into the 1968 Presidential election. We need an inside leader,a John Cornyn for example, and an outside leader. I nominate Newt Gingrich for the latter.

Second, they're coming for our First Amendment rights folks. Up - chuck Schumer today compared talk radio to pornography, saying that if you regulate pornography you should be able to regulate talk radio. If they can't get the Fairness Doctrine passed in its original form, they will try to accomplish the same goal through local regulation of radio stations. We must not let them win.

Third, let the pain of this loss really sink in until you feel it in your bones. It should sting severely, because the future of our country is at stake. We are driven more by our desire to avoid pain than we are by our desire to experience pleasure. Let's learn from our mistakes for once.

Fourth, in the words of the late, great Jim "Jimmy V" Valvano " don't give up, don't ever give up." The survival of our country is at stake.

Clueless. Welcome to reality. Palin is vapid cow who has much understanding of the American electorate as your boy Dubya.

As for 1st Amendment worries, where have you been? Your boy dubya has rolled back more civil liberties in 8 years then all Presidents combined have in the last 230 years.

Your lack of understanding and being able to objectively comment on what just took place clearly indicates your bias. It isn't liberal policies silly---it's a rejection of fear, lies, war and world disrespect in favore of something tis country has not seen for a while. HOPE.

Yo Philly! Welcome to the blog. I'm glad you visited because you don't have a clue. It's now time to learn something.

As for last night, I salute the new President and wish him godspeed. I know, I know I offended you with the "God" reference. Sorry, it's that silly First Amendment again.

Your ignorance and bias are astounding.I wonder what you would have said had Senator McCain won. Probably something to the effect of, let's kill the war mongering Nazi murderer. That's the difference between Right and Left Comrade. It's called "CLASS".

Speaking of the First Amendment, the President has done nothing to diminish your civil liberties and you know it. What he has done is keep this country safe for the last seven years. I lost a cousin on 9/11, but what do you care about American life. Not much I'm sure.

As for your comments about Sarah Palin, it's pretty obvious that she is your sexual fantasy. Here's a bit of advice Comrade, take a cold shower and then take your significant other out for a nice dinner. You can send the bill to Obama. I "hope" you get lucky. It'll relieve the tension.

Yes, losers are funny. Could that be why you laughed at your own joke?

philly said...

The D said...

"losers always are funny hahahahahahha"

1. In this statement, you openly punch yourself in the face.

2. I called you on it and served you your rear end.

3. You ate it with glee. Your not reading even that correctly is testament to your lack of credibility.

You're a funny one. Tie your shoelaces and maybe you'll stop tripping over yourself. ;)

"i guess i can figure out what the "d" is for."

Did you just take a shot at calling me a name?

"that kid mark"

"silly kid"

"what prat."

"that worry wart sean hannity."

"john mccain was just a lousy pilot trying to win his daddy's approval."

I'm so glad to see that you're rising above the petty name-calling and divisive tactics you claim to hate so much. If you represent America's future, man, it sure is bright!

philly said...

philly:

The word you are looking for to describe your writings is "drivel", not dribble. Dribble is what that stuff on your chin is doing.

philly said...

he he another classmate from the high school of dunces. this really is fun. obama!

The D said...

"obama!!! don't whine so much, at least somebody is reading your dribble...."

Last time I checked, this wasn't MY dribble:

"that kid mark"

"silly kid"

"what prat."

"that worry wart sean hannity."

"john mccain was just a lousy pilot trying to win his daddy's approval."


"this is fun working little d up to a froth :)"

1. I'm just fine.
2. If you get your kicks out of getting me mad, you, sir, need a life.
3. Read this: OBAMA, self proclaimed uniter, not a divider. Live up to your hero's message.
