As I was saying on another thread that the GOP will only back RINOs. The GOP is falling apart and/or pulling a Newt. They want Romney, but he will be crushed. Please America, time to put the boots on. We are going to have to fight like it’s for all the marbles. That means donating…even if it’s a buck. Donate money, time, anything, because I think we have a very good chance with a third party or tea party platform. It’s time to put these RINO bastards out to pasture, or better yet, let them go with Skippy to the big outhouse.
The Anguish of the RINOs.

There is a sound heard all across America today. No, it is not the cicadas, which in some parts of the country are rising from their 13-year slumber. It is the sound of establishment Republicans crying.
Mitch Daniels isn’t running for President.
In a midnight email, Daniels told supporters of his decision. His reasons were personal. His wife and his four daughters did not want him to and it is hard to undertake running for President with anything less than full family support.
The establishment spinmeisters have gone into warp speed to try and spin this and pressure another establishment candidate to run. The Daily Caller’s headline read, “In the wake of Daniels’ announcement, will GOP turn to dream candidates?” Of course their idea of dream candidates included Paul Ryan (not running), Chris Christie (thankfully not running) and Jeb Bush (please never another Bush anywhere near the White House).
Politico featured a similar story with a similar cast (Substitute Rick Perry for Jeb Bush, and Perry has said he isn’t running).
On Meet the Press, or as Rush Limbaugh likes to call it, Meet the Depressed, GOP consultant Mike Murphy parroted the establishment lines. First, the race would come down to the three establishment candidates, Romney, Huntsman and Pawlenty and there would be one candidate there for “entertainment value,” possibly Herman Cain.
There is fear and loathing in the establishment. Fear because they know they do not have a good candidate. Romney manages to raise a lot of money but everyone knows that if he is the nominee, the Obama team is going to beat him to death with Romneycare. Huntsman is a joke. He is the poster child for being a RINO. He once wrote fan boy letters to Obama telling him what a great leader he is. Team Obama will beat him to death with his own quotes about the greatness of Obama. Pawlenty seems like a nice guy, but he has the political firepower of a dead armadillo.
The establishment loathing of the Tea Party could not be more obvious. While the GOP cannot seem to get out any type of messaging to oppose the Obama regime, they are doing a good job of trying to message against anyone with Tea Party support. Charles Krauthammer used the term “entertainment value” on Herman Cain’s candidacy. He also used a similar term referring to Donald Trump’s candidacy, as Trump started surging in the polls. Expect a similar treatment for Michele Bachmann, if and when she starts to surge in the polls.
The GOP establishment does not get it and is doing its best to relegate the GOP to history right next to the Whig party it replaced. There is a huge disconnect between the establishment and the rank and file GOP as well as conservative Americans. Earth to GOP: This is your base.
The GOP base loved it when we heard Donald Trump rip the Chinese or for that matter Obama. The rank and file love Herman Cain and Michele Bachmann when they do the same thing. The base wants the GOP to go after the other side. The base is ready for a fight. The base wants to get into a fight. The base wants to win this fight.
Meanwhile, the establishment Republicans, Romney, Gingrich, Huntsman and Pawlenty stagger around like freshly castrated cattle, wondering what has happened to an important part of their anatomy.
The GOP needs to understand, this election is a cross roads for it. If the GOP establishment pushes another legacy candidate like Romney or another RINO like Huntsman or Pawlenty, the conservative base will bolt from the GOP. Unless the GOP buys a clue and returns to its conservative roots and nominates a real conservative fighter for President, by 2016, there will be a third party in this country…
