As the GOP Primary rages on, there is currently a lot of rhetoric flying around. As two (three or four?) potential candidates battle for the nomination and for conservative votes, a lot of heated comments are being exchanged. Anyone who remembers the 2008 primary knows that this did not hurt our current President at all, as he tangled with Hillary Clinton. In fact, it was quickly forgotten as the liberals fell in line to support the nominee.
Looking at today’s race, the same battle is occurring again between Romney and Santorum (Gingrich, Paul too?).
Each nominee’s camp is claiming that only THEY can defeat Barack Obama, providing a laundry list of reasons to support their claim. It is concerning that so many people are getting caught up (at times, I too) in the fight for their candidate to get the nomination, that they may be losing sight of what got us to this point in the first place. Take a moment and realize that whether “Obama-lite” Romney or “life-time politician” Santorum wins the nomination, this election is not going to be about the GOP candidate; it will be about one man’s desecration and attempted destruction of a nation.
November 2012 will be about Barack Obama.
In an ABC News poll, Two-thirds (67%) of Americans want the Supreme Court to strike down the individual mandate in “Obama-Care”. In addition, the almighty “independents” that supposedly govern elections oppose the law 51% – 43% as well. Since we’ve been told repeatedly that Independents are the only real objective in a national election, this should be enough proof to solidify a GOP win. If that is not enough, not even two weeks ago, another poll, this time from the WaPo, showed that Obama’s disapproval rating hit a new high of 50%. These are only two recent surveys that have thrown the mainstream media and the White House into panic. The idea that these sentiments overwhelmingly exist in the country but somehow translate into an Obama victory is not logical. A majority cannot adamantly oppose a President’s key achievement and support him at the same time. As much as he tries to avoid it, Obama cannot escape the fact that he will be judged by his actions in November.
If you do not trust polls and are still not convinced that the GOP attacks on each other will be almost irrelevant, consider this…
In 2010, GOP candidates won in a landslide against almost every Democratic challenger, resulting in a re-taking of the House and almost the Senate. In a special election in 2011, New York District 9 elected its first GOP Rep. since 1920. These protest votes against Barack Obama were unpredicted and under-reported by the media in an attempt to conceal the strong message that voters sent to D.C.
Nothing has changed since then, except that our nation’s situation has grown even more precarious. We are two years away from nationalized health care being fully implemented, the constitution is being trampled on every day, and governmental organizations are becoming the channels in which to bypass Congress. Without a doubt, America realizes it.
The idea that 2010’s sentiment has dissipated is absurd. Americans across this country who indiscriminately protested against Obama through their votes in 2010 now have the object of their anger on the ballot this year. What should be obvious is that this groundswell of anti-Democrat voters is being and will continue to be unrecognized by most media channels until several days before the November elections; at which point, it will be labeled a “surprise” and an “unprecedented” movement. We must realize this cover-up of the majority’s opinions is an attempt to suppress any and every damaging vote possible.
Just remember that in several months the GOP primary will have ended and there will be a nominee. The most difficult part for some will be realigning their focus and attempting to defend the nominee that they had been trying to destroy for months. Fortunately, many out there, just like the late-Andrew Breitbart, are keeping their sights on the real enemy and the most important vote in our country’s history. They understand that 2012 is not a year to support third-party candidates or sit-out the election in protest and that the furious battle in the GOP will end with a large group being majorly disappointed. In November, only one of these four men will remain standing and ready to appear on the ballot against the President, and most of the efforts put forth in the primary will no longer matter.
This is why we must stay focused on the real mission of exposing and defeating Barack Obama.
