Have you seen this story?
The new spiritual leaders of the Republican Party have come out swinging against Mitt Romney for his controversial remarks on a donor conference call about why Barack Obama won reelection.
These Republican “leaders” are reacting to this story:
Business Insider provides transcripts for the clips:
[Bill Clinton reportedly said to Romney] “It’s a proven political strategy, which is give a bunch of money to a group and, guess what, they’ll vote for you. What I would do if I were a Democrat running four years from now — I’d say dental care ought to be included in Obamacare.”
Now, here’s why I ask whether or not it is time for you to leave the Republican Party:
If we are to hold to “conservative” ideals, then we need to be honest with what we are facing. Romney was doing nothing more than telling his supporters what Bill Clinton told him about that issue. So, when Jindal and Rubio and others attack Romney for being honest about this challenge, they are actually signalling that they want to move the Republican Party toward pandering to the electorate, too. At that point — the point where Republicans try to get elected with handouts — then they have essentially become Democrats.
So why would you stay with the Party? Do you REALLY think you can take over the Democrat Party from within as a conservative? If not, then LOGIC dictates that you MUST leave the Republican Party because — if it is going to join the Democrats — you can’t change that Party from within, either. Face it: the Party leaders are signalling that they are going to play the same game as the Democrats in the future, and there is no way for a Republican to out-pander a Democrat.
So what future does a “conservative” have in EITHER of these parties? It’s too bad the Libertarians do not see the problem with their philosophy: we’d all make natural allies if they did.
