In Novemeber 2010, Will Conservatives Say: So Now What?
So now what. Is that the strategy of Republicans poised to take a bigger stake in government and possibly the presidency in 2012. It was clear that a pendulum swung in the direction of the liberals starting in 2006. Now that they are firmly in control and have been ramming their naked agenda down the nation’s throat, the pendulum is swinging fast and hard in the direction of the right. So now what. At this point, the pendulum’s momentum is being driven by the extreme distaste of liberal policy, what will keep it to the right. At this point, I have no idea. I know what I would do, but I have no idea what the Republicans will do. Aside from opposition to Obama, I have not heard a clearly articulated vision for a conservative America in 2010 and 2012. In 1994, the vision was clearly articulated through the Contract with America. Unfortunately, the Republicans just became happy to oppose Clinton and keep power, and the conservative message and movement faltered and failed, culminating in the two terms of Bush and the loss of Congress. So come November 2010, will you be asking now what? Can groups like the Tea party people try to create a platform that stands for action through tax cuts and eliminating red tape.
