The Dems will go among the left leaning Republicans and find some candidate to run as a Dem and the idiots of that district will only see a "moderate" running and vote for the fool as the lesser of two evils.
Conservatives of the extreme right will form a third party and screw the rest of the conservative movement by their actions and thus lead to another long run of disastrous Dems in power which of course leads to Obummer being re-elected if George Soros continues to see that he can use the sock puppet for his purposes, otherwise, Obummer is out and Hillary will be in. Mark it down on the calendar folks.
Mitt Romney albeit not as conservative as some would like is never the less one of the few who could take leadership and actually bring the Party together(and BTW could have beaten Obama) except for the far right who would not vote for him unless he was a full fledged Southern Baptist. Romney has been successful at every job that he has undertaken. He is passionate. He is articulate, savvy and has an eye for recruiting those who are the best at their jobs. Mitt Romney could do wonders for the party. He would be able to provide the GOP’s, get out the vote, 72 hour program with great improvements and he would create a top notch center for Republican organization, communications, fundraising and creative strategy. Romney has been bantered around as one to become the leader of the RNC but becoming the political leader of the party does not help him establish the bipartisan image that a Presidential nominee needs to capture the independent vote. If he did as a good a job for the having been the chairman of the party he rebuilds, could help him get the party’s nomination. I feel that a truly smart RNC chairman would involve Mitt Romney and utilize his expertise but unfortunately the current chairman is not going to do any such thing to assist Romney or anyone else. Doing so would keep Romney free to expand his nonpolitical credentials while still allowing for his Midas touch to assist behind the scenes.
Just five percent (5%) view either John McCain, the GOP's unsuccessful 2008 presidential candidate, or new party chairman Michael Steele as the party's leader. (Rasmussen Reports)
There is mention of a few others within Congress but I don’t see any of them stepping up as real leaders. " Pawlenty has been mentioned a few times along with some rather basically unknowns.
Richard Lugar, the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, defended President Barack Obama’s handling of recent terrorism threats, taking issue with former Vice President Dick Cheney’s criticism.
“It’s unfair,” Lugar said in an interview for Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt,” airing this weekend. “I think the president is focused.”
Michael Steele certainly is not a leader, he is only out for Steele and what the position for which he was totally unqualified for will bring him. Some of his recent comment show his lack of leadership and his lack of ability to forge any kind of base”:
Get with the program," he said. "Some of my prior chairmen who are running their mouths right now, how many farm teams did you build as chairman?" 'I've had enough of it. If you don't want me in the job, fire me. But until then, shut up. Get with the program or get out of the way.
Responding directly to a report Thursday in The Washington
GOP Chairman Michael Steele began the week by candidly telling Sean Hannity that, while Republicans will certainly pick up seats in the House in 2010, they won't win enough to close the Democrats' massive 78-seat advantage. That certainly is not the words one wants to hear from leadership. A sports coach would be fired if he made such a statement and Steele should be.
This sums up Steele pretty much:
“I do not see how a chairman can do book tours and give speeches for fees that go to him and not the RNC, which needs more money badly,” said Mr. Nicholson, who was President George W. Bush’s secretary of veterans affairs.“You cannot serve two masters in that job,” Mr. Nicholson said. “I think when elected, you agree to give the RNC and its mission 100 percent of your efforts.”
Gingrich said he's a fan of Steele, who is "pretty close to what we need." Gingrich is certainly not the leadership the Party needs either. Anyone who lines up with Gore and Pelosi certainly is not what is needed in leadership.
“I completely understand why many of you would have questions about this, so I want to take this opportunity to explain my reasons. First of all, I want to be clear: I don't think that we have conclusive proof of global warming. And I don't think we have conclusive proof that humans are at the center of it.”Newt Gingrich
But yet he takes part in advertisement with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for The Alliance for Climate Protection, a group founded by former Vice President Al Gore. The ad was nothing more than support for CRAP AND TAX.
So what happens in 2010. There is no leadership at the moment and waiting until the campaign season commences is too late. The time for leadership to step up is nowand then I would call it a bit late. Leadership should have already been banging on the Democrats showing their underhanded ways in handling the Health Care debacle but no one has really spoken up. No one has made enough noise to get the attention of the media and folks the only way to get their attention is to raise a lot of cain, loud and furious. Who cares if you tick off some idiot in Congress, they need to be ticked off and kicked out. Who cares if you tick off Sharpton or Jesse Jackson, they need to be ticked off and should have been kicked to the curb years ago. Race baiters just never seem to go away. They are just not getting as much attention since the biggest race baiter resides in the White House.
Unless the Party gets off it’s dead butt look for failure in 2010 and 2012 and folks by that time the
