Time for Introspection,
but Not Surrender

Creators Syndicate, by David Limbaugh

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/9/2012 12:04:48 PM

Has the nation gone irreversibly blue? Did intraparty disunity sabotage Mitt Romney's presidential quest? Or is there some other explanation for the nation's re-election of a president with the worst record in decades? I received an email from a brilliant conservative friend who wonders whether Republicans can ever win another election and thus whether the nation is forever lost. I ran into a college student at church the Sunday before the election, and despite his strong conservatism and high intelligence, he admitted confusion about the candidates' respective positions after the presidential debates. My first reaction after the

We have learned that new media, Rush - Fox News - Lucianne.com - Hot Air etc etc - as well as the wealth of popular, conservative books published under Obama's tragic reign - all this has no measurable effect upon an electorate dumbed-down beyond reach. In any appraisal moving forward, that should be lesson #1, despairing as it may be.

Since 1946, and fer shure, since 1960, the Public Schools of America, and practically all non-technical courses in most Colleges have thoroughly espoused the usual lines of Democrat-Socialist instruction, i.e., America is evil, America should feed all the world, give everything to everybody, profits are bad (except for MOC), ad infinitim, ad nauseum.

And as the Great One says, You Don’t Vote Against Santa Claus.

BUT, the Great One, and Fox News, and a very few others, have not only showed us what really went on in the Benghazi Affair, but unfortunately beat that theme to death.
No one on our side seems to realize that the Takers and Morons (forgive me, legitimate Medical Morons) not only couldn’t care less about Benghazi, but have not acquired nor want to acquire any idea as to what or where same is; as long as that check(s) arrives and the EBT Card(s) are recharged every month or ten days; forever and ever and ever, these will continue to vote for more of the same.
The Santa Complex rides on.
Even in Congress.

I see no way out until the Usual Suspects are unable to find any food in Wal-Mart nor in Publix, etc., and then decide to invade the Pantries belonging to the Makers and to You and to the Great One and, lastly, to the MOC and to SCOTUS and to Big Sis— at that point the fur will fly.
The United Socialist State of America will go under Martial Law and then under a Dictatorship, very possibly during Lord 0’s Third or Fourth Terms.....
Perhaps Comrade Putin will come to our rescue.

It really doesn't matter how the electorate votes when the Democrats have voter fraud perfected. I don't buy the numbers.

Mr. Limbaugh, the Party is already irrevocably splintered. We've held our nose for the last time. Mr. Romney may very well have turned out to be the greatest President who ever lived, but he was unfortunately not a great candidate. The combination of republican "leadership", a next man on the torem poll succession program, a take no prisoners in your approach to winning the Primary, but not the General election makes surrender seem like a reasonable approach. Sometimes the house has to be torn down to be rebuilt. That clearly is the case if the GOP is to recapture the conservative support again.

Day 3 without Limbaugh telling me the way things ought to be. It's refreshing.
Dave, how about you and Rush go try to run something besides your mouths.

I don't how much more Romney could have done as a candidate. He was clearly favored by a majority according almost all of the polls. I don't blame him.

I blame the corrupt media. They are the enemy, foreign and domestic.

I'm only allowed to give a limited amount of money to any particular candidate. But if I were an entertainer, I could pretty much run hours-long commercials disguised as amusement. If I were a teacher, I could lecture my students, intimidate them, brainwash them and humiliate them for hours and hours and hours until they succumb. Put that together with a corrupt media and you've made toast.

Until these things change, we're never going to win. Young people eventually become old people, learn hard lessons and become conservative, but the supply of young people to vote democrat is endless.

WAKE UP Republicans! You can't even make a decent bumpersticker. THIS is how you're losing.

It's the sexy, stupid.

Not time for surrender. Not time to contemplate our navels, either. It's time for fundamental political reorganization and restructuring. Time to stop listening to the know-it-all "experts" who have led us to this point.

So tell us, David - and others - what precisely must we do? Listen to the party Elites and be happy? It's clear the Elites do not want to listen to us - and they run the party. No, David. It's time to recognize our "irreconcilable differences" and dissolve the marriage. Its time for the conservative message to be unfiltered by the political know-it-all's. It may be a losing proposition in the short run, but it's our only hope in the long run. A house divided cannot stand. That includes the Republican party.

The Republican Party, and the USA, both died on November 6, 2012. It was a last stand for both, and we lost.

There are at least 11,000,000 illegals in this country (possibly double that) that will get citizenship before the 2014 congressional and gubinitorial elections. They will all vote Demon-RAT as ''thanks'' for that wonderful gift. That will automatically turn all red states blue.

Game over. Surrender complete. One party (lie-beral socialist Demon-RATS) with no checks or balances for whatever time this country has left.

They get their ''Socialist Paradise'' on the rotting corpse of the former USA. The rest of us get Hell on Earth and sad memories of the greatness this country once stood for.

And when that ''Socialist Paradise'' implodes under it's own weight, the only question is what language our new overseers will speak -- Spanish, Chinese or Arabic...

David Brat, the long-shot challenger to Congressman Eric Cantor (R-VA) in Virginia´s 7th Congressional District, is demanding an investigation into the new executive director of the Virginia Republican party, Shaun Kenney, after it was revealed Kenney´s consulting firm is now on Cantor´s payroll. "If Eric Cantor´s campaign or any of his affiliates has hired Shaun Kenney’s consulting firm, any pretense of fairness in the upcoming Seventh District Congressional Race is diminished," Brat wrote in a letter to Pat Mullins, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia (RPVA).

The White House has announced that John Podesta, President Obama’s current Counselor, will lead his delegation to the Holy See for the Mass of canonization of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II on April 27, 2014. Podesta will head the delegation which will also include Rep.

National security should serve policy objectives. It should not be a victim of political correctness. Politics should be kept especially far away from the practice of intelligence. Today´s decision by the NYPD to close the unit that was mapping Muslim communities in New York is very likely a product of political pressure. It is a decision that will make the city targeted in the largest terrorist attack in modern history less safe. I have gone on record in the past—on Al Jazeera, of all places—to explain why the program was a good idea and crucial to preventing terrorist plots in the future. In

Bloomberg Plans a $50 Million

Michael R. Bloomberg, making his first major political investment since leaving office, plans to spend $50 million this year building a nationwide grass-roots network to motivate voters who feel strongly about curbing gun violence, an organization he hopes can eventually outmuscle the National Rifle Association. Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, said gun control advocates need to learn from the N.R.A. and punish those politicians who fail to support their agenda — even Democrats whose positions otherwise align with his own. “They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’ ” he said of the N.R.A.

A Denver, Colorado mother has been shot dead in front of her children by her ´hallucinating´ while she was on a 13 minute call to 911, police said. Kristine Kirk, 44, called for help around 9:30p.m. Monday, telling dispatchers that her husband Richard Kirk, 47, was ´talking about the end of the world´ and ´scarring´ their three children. A source told FOX31 investigators are looking at whether he had eaten a marijuana cookie. Mrs Kirk said in the 911 call that there was a gun in the house but it was in a safe, according to a probable cause statement. ´She then said

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
