Mark Levin on Lessons Learned
in Presidential Election: ‘We
Ought to Nominate a Conservative’

Cybercast News Service, by Penny Starr

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/15/2012 9:58:25 AM

Speaking at an event at the conservative Heritage Foundation on Wednesday, Mark Levin said conservatism is the key to winning the presidential race. “Well, first of all, the lesson we’ve learned is from time to time we ought to nominate a conservative,” said Levin, author, radio host and president of Landmark Legal Foundation. Levin was interviewed by Ed Meese, who named Levin chief of staff when he was serving as attorney general during the Reagan administration. “What lessons should we draw from (the election) as conservatives and what reasons do we

Comments:
When will the Republicans finally figure that out? The question is will the establishment RINO´s ever allow that to happen. The Tea Partiers are now considered "insurgents" and extremists because they support all the right things. It´s very discouraging.

Michelle (who barely won her house seat!) and Rick? Yeah, Akin and Mourdock on a 50-state scale. Gingrich? Donald Trump? That 9-9-9 whatshisname? Yep, the darlings of conservatives would have done better than Romney.

The GOP hates Conservatives more than they hate the Left. The elites would rather run a losing Party than to be followers in a winning Party.

NO ONE as a GOP candidate could have won this election. I believe Romney won if the votes had been fairly counted. This election was in the bag before the ballots were cast. The people voted for Romney but the machines voted for Obama.

If we can´t win the elections anymore it is time for atlas to shrug. It won´t be easier, but it would be the most effective way. When we stop pulling the wagon it will stop.

I have been saying this for years. They always run the most liberal rat they can find so why don´t we run the most conservative of our lot.

Romney is a fine man and would have made a great leader. However, I´m not going along with a moderate next time. I´m not kidding this time.

Ditto #2. No one, not one of the Republicans who ran in the primaries, stood a chance against THIS administration.
By all means, let´s eat our own once again, shall we?
Before the election was even over, Democrats were gleeful in their predictions that the Republican Party would be at each other´s throats on 11/7. (Kinda makes one wonder what made them so sure Obama would win.) All the same, in this case they were right. Sad.

#2
Neat trick bringing up sideshow issues the media hounded day in and day out.
On the national stage, Newt would have eviscerated Obama in debate #1 2 AND 3 and choke Obama with Benghazi and place his corrupt administration around his neck....and then he would have made sure the voting apparatus wasn´t sabotaged....and then he would have....
it goes on forever. Mitt waited around to be annointed and was shocked as he!! when he wasn´t.

This reminds me of the professional football or basketball drafts. Do you choose based on the position where you have a need or do you choose the best overall player available.

We didn´t have very good conservatives available in this draft. Next time we´ll have a whole lot of good conservatives available (write it down now: Kasich will be on the ticket in 2016).

The republicans like mccain,boehner and mcconnel have more in common with democrats like pelosi than conservatives. Considering who is "running" the country now, I fear it will become a moot point in the next 12-18 months. There may not be much left to govern. In the long run, we may be happy that we lost and removed ourselves from economic ground zero.

What the Republicans need is a presidential candidate with the courage to declare BEFORE Election Day that unless the decent hard-working, taxpaying citizens of America vote Republican, Obama will win the election because of the trillions of dollars of ´gifts´ he´s made to low-income voters, the unions, etc., etc., during his first term.

Instead, Republicans had a candidate this year who waited until AFTER the election to opine, ´´Obama won the election with ´gifts´ to low-income voters,´´ etc.

It would probably help if Republicans, whether in office or the media, stopped using the euphemism ´´spending´´ when accusing Democrats of ´´taxing and spending,´´ when what they are really doing morning, noon, and night is taxing and BRIBING.

As usual Levin is on the right track. Priebus was totally inept. But the main problem is that an immoral, totally fraudlent, anti-American (probably muslim), cocaine user and seller, gay, poorly educated, forced to surrender his law license, totally unvetted by the RNC even though 900 mil was spent in mostly silly ads, greedily spending over 500 mil in lush vacations and parties was NEVER exposed to an ignorant electorate which would have probably reacted and either stayed home or voted Republican.

The more I look back on my lifetime, the more I see the Republicans were NEVER conservative. They were just less liberal than the Democrats. Even when we got Republican victories, we rarely got the civil liberties or our money returned. Usually they just took more, differently.
Now they have lost to the most corrupt and inept Communist in the history of the nation. Even with the massive voter fraud, it should have been a slam dunk. It wasn´t.
Its past time to unload that dead weight and see if we cant get a coalition of conservatives and libertarians together, and really sell our ideas. What can it hurt? All we do is lose now anyway.

#23 is correct. Since WH Taft, the party rank and file have remained true to conservative principles; while the GOP elites have been in the pocket of ´big business´ whose interests have absolutely nothing to do w/these principles. The GOP is a carcass who has had many funerals but badly needs a burial.

#25, a vociferous demurral. The likes of Disraeli, von Bismarck, TR, Lady Thacher, Ronald Reagan, among others; were instinctive politicians anchored in core principle which translated into their politicial genius. Willard Romney, a trendy lefty squish w/o any core principles will never, ever be confused with any of them. He stood for anything, everything and nothing; all in the same sentence and the voters grasped this in their bones. This was a very winnable election against arguably the worst POTUS in our history. But doofus Romney, the worst possible choice, was the nominee w/decisive defeat predictible.

I wish that one of the "true" conservatives on this thread who so joyously trashes Mitt Romney could explain how any one of his primary opponents could have done a better job?

And anyone who thinks that one of the other GOP hopefuls could have beaten Obama is living in a fantasy world. An old, snarly white guy with [bleep]loads of personal baggage like Gingrich? Good Grief, just take an honest look at the coalition of idiots, moochers, libertines and clueless wonders who gave Obama his majority, and you have to conclude that Mitt did the best anyone could to bring people over.

Romney would have been a fine president, a principled leader for the world we live in today. It is unfortunate that some on our side don´t realize that. But that´s OK with them - they´ll continue to live in an alternative comic book universe in which some imaginary conservative superhero swoops in to save the day.

Obama plans six fundraisers

President Obama will host at least six fundraisers for Senate Democrats ahead of the 2014 midterm elections, a Democratic aide said Monday. The president´s commitment comes after he huddled last week in the Oval Office with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chairman Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) and DSCC Executive Director Guy Cecil. According to Politico, which first reported the fundraisers, the fundraising appearances will include trips to New York and the Washington suburbs in the "coming weeks."

According to the Pentagon documents, McRaven sent his email on “Friday, May 13, 2011 5:09 PM.” The documents do not detail what documents, if any, were destroyed in response to the McRaven directive.

Each passing day is more incriminating for President Obama´s Obamacare, as the news is like a relentless prosecutor amassing evidence against a serial killer. Yet the more evidence that rolls in condemning the president´s "signature achievement" -- wouldn´t you love to have that albatross hung around your epitaph? -- the more entrenched Obama becomes, making clear that his heart is not with the American people or their needs but stubbornly fixated on self. His singular goal is not to provide "affordable health care" but to slay those who are trying to take his "baby" away from him, with the deranged obsession

The Seattle Children’s Hospital is suing Washington state’s insurance commissioner over a “failure to ensure adequate network coverage” in the insurance exchanges established as part of the Affordable Care Act. “We’re seeing denials in care, disruptions in care. We’re seeing a great deal of confusion and, at times, anger and frustration on the part of these families who bought insurance thinking that their children would be covered,” a doctor with the hospital said. “And, in fact, it’s a false promise.” A recent CBS News report detailed the experience of one mother whose child recently came down with an ear infection.

In 2012, President Obama established a program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

The militants belonged to a group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, which is fighting the Shiite-dominated army of the Iraqi government, mostly in Anbar Province. But they are also linked to bomb attacks elsewhere and other fighting that has thrown Iraq deeper into sectarian violence.
