As yet another Republican primary debate blows by the airwaves and as yet another round of anti-Romney rhetoric ushers forth from the usual cadre of bloggers and big-mouthed talk show hosts, us political peons out here in the hinterland can only take our heads in our hands in response to the self-destructive hubris of the conservative anti-Establishment.
Listening to Rush Limbaugh, who has spent the last few weeks using his 3-hour radio talk show to niggle and nag at all things Romney while at the same time popping out simpering paeans to Santorum, I’ve come to the no brainer conclusion that whether classified as the dreaded Republican Establishment or proffered as the populist Tea Party contingent, when it comes to political savvy and sophistication, they’re all a bunch of pompous jackasses. And it seems Ann Coulter agrees.
In 2008, Romney was enthusiastically supported not only by Limbaugh and Levin, but also by Sean Hannity, Rick Santorum, Herman Cain, Laura Ingraham, Michael Savage and many others who now seem to view Romney as a closet liberal.
This year, every Republican candidate for president opposes abortion, promises to repeal Obamacare, opposes raising taxes, and on and on. Only one candidate is strong on illegal immigration, which is second only to repealing Obamacare as the most important issue facing the nation. That’s the alleged liberal, Mitt Romney.
But instead of popping Champagne corks over our final triumph over Rockefeller Republicanism, some conservatives are still fighting old wars….It’s as if scoring points in intra-Republican squabbles is more important than beating Obama.
We’re being asked to hand Obama another four years in the White House in order to “send a message.” To whom? And what message? That we’re morons? Message received! Ann Coulter
