The Romney, Huckabee, Gingrich, and Palin Conspiracy


Ever since the 2008 election of Obama, I have heard the names of Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich, and Sarah Palin thrown around as the front runners for the GOP Nomination in 2012.  What do all of these people have in common?  They are all losers in previous presidential bids.  What else do they all have in common?  They are all the people the media want you to believe the front runners are.  All but one of these nominees represent the old guard Republican elite that the tea party have rejected.  So why are they consistently put forth?  I believe that the hope of the media is to frame the GOP primary before it happens.  Say it long enough and maybe it will come true.   This is not a new tactic.  Parents do it all the time.  Instead of asking the kid if they want to go to bed, you ask them if they want to go to bed now or in 5 minutes.   The question is framed such that the child never had a choice of going to bed, just when the timing.  It allows the child to have a sense of choice, but only the choice the parents give them.  In the same way, the media looks at the American people like children.   Instead of asking, who do people want to be the nominee, they ask the people which name from a bunch of people that they know will lose do they want to be the nominee.  This way the media gets to choose the GOP loser.  My hope is that the election of 2010 and the awakening of the conservative movement will negate this media tactic.   My hope is that not a single one of these candidates gets the nomination, and I don’t know anyone else that would vote in the GOP primary that is excited about these 4 candidates, with the possible exception of Palin.   I would rather Palin continue in her role as a promoter of conservatism than run in the primary.     If I were to put a few names up for nomination, I would put Bobby Jindal, Chris Christie, Rick Perry, and Michael Savage for President and see how that poll comes out.

We can only hope he runs.

I have only heard Jim speak a few times and don't know much about him. What do you all like about him?

jrchaard said...

He is principled and a budget hawk.

I think you will enjoy this article. I think that Rand Paul is teaching DeMint how to be a conservative.

This is the kind of competition I like, seeing who can be the bigger small government person. Paul also had a great appearance on Letterman.

Lets just hope DeMint, and other CINOs, find a way to work with Paul.
