I love being right but, who doesn't? For the past few month's I've been telling just about everyone I know that the Republican's and conservatives are not voting for Romney but, they are voting against President Obama. Some thought it was double talk. While others wondered what the difference is. Well as it turned out, Rush Limbaugh, radio host, political commentator, attention seeking clown, and de facto head of the Republican Party confirmed my suspicions. Earlier this week in a rare moment of honesty, Limbaugh expressed the frustration of the party on his syndicated radio program by saying that Mitt Romney needs to realize that this election is not about him, but it is about getting Obama out of the White House. Limbaugh went on to say that they wouldn't care if Elmer Fudd ran against Obama as long as he won the election.
The GOP, which was never thrilled with Romney to begin with, has apparently grown tired of Romney's "flip flopping". His latest, is the fact that he once said that he would do away with Obama Care in totality. Now he says that he will keep part of the program in place. Republican's and Conservatives alike are watching their party implode at the hands of Mitt Romney, and there is really nothing they can do about it.
If I were a Republican, or a Conservative, I would feel anger, betrayal, and I would be deeply disappointed. It is a sad state of affairs when the political party that you chose to be affiliated with takes one of the most sacred rights that you have being part of a democracy for granted. Your right to vote for a candidate who accurately represents your values. Limbaugh's statement made one thing clear. The party is willing to sacrifice the well being of its constituents in order to satisfy their long standing vendetta against Barack Obama. The truth is, given the fact that the President's approval ratings are up, and both Mitt Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan, are both habitual liar's, the GOP needs to give serious thought to whom they will nominate in 2016.
