Word on the political street from GOP consultants and the left is that Rush Limbaugh and the Tea Party cost Romney the election. We conservatives are advised to “moderate our tone” and back away from our “extremist ideas.”
So let me make sure I understand. Obama and company were allowed to go for the jugular, using false narratives (lies) to win votes. They said Romney hates dogs, blacks, women, and the poor. Heck, they even threw in the absurd accusation that Romney was responsible for the death of a working man’s wife. Check and mate. Game over. Obama won. Did anyone suggest Team Obama “moderate their tone”?
But when Rush Limbaugh exposed and the Tea Party rejected Obama’s socialistic agenda, Team Obama, which includes the mainstream media, called us racists. When we expressed our biblical belief that marriage should remain defined as between one man and one woman, we were called extremists. And when did it become extreme to believe it immoral to deny medical assistance to babies who survive abortions?
And for the record, once and for all, conservatives do not care what consenting adults do in their bedrooms. All we ask is that we not be forced to fund it or be mandated to say that it is OK and normal.
Unfortunately, since Romney lost, GOP consultants have joined the chorus of folks on the left calling for conservatives to back away from our core beliefs and go along to get along with Obama. They claim that this is what younger non-whites and female voters want.
I say, “Hogwash!” Many younger, non-white, and female voters are clueless about Obama’s destruction of America, the virtues of conservatism, and why liberalism sucks!
