The Spot-On Quote Of The Day…

29 October 2011 @ 12:50

…is awarded to Stacy McCain for this succinct indictment of the GOP Establishment:

The central-planning model of politics — which dominated the GOP when Karl Rove was at the White House and Ken Mehlman ran the RNC — is deeply implicated in the Republican “brand damage” problem that led to landslide victories for Democrats in 2006-08. It was only with the rise of the Tea Party in 2009-10 that the conservative movement recaptured the momentum it lost during the Bush/Rove/Mehlman era.

And now, with Herman Cain riding high in the polls, conservatives are presented with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to repudiate the GOP insiders’ attempt to resuscitate their central-planning model of party control, which would result inevitably in the nomination of the Establishment favorite Mitt Romney.

Spot-on.

Now these same insiders are trying to climb atop the TEA Party / Grassroots pile and assume control over us.  Well, hey, that’s politics, but they are also doing something that can only be described as insidious: trying to advance the narrative that any candidate that enjoys the support of many in the TEA Party Movement is ‘unelectable’, ‘too extreme’, ‘not up to the job’, etc. [please see my post: The Evidence Is In: GOP Establishment Is At War With With Us].  The Republicans Who Matter are willing to do whatever it takes to stomp us down, even if it means Barack Hussein Obama gets re-elected.  They want their White House Passes back and they’re positively drooling over the prospect of being the stars at Beltway cocktail parties again.

We have an obligation to get the word out as to what the Republican Establishment is up to, because, as Stacy writes:

…And that’s what it’s about to me — whether the conservative movement and the Republican Party are going to be controlled by Establishment insiders and influential pundits, or whether the rank-and-file grassroots can choose their own leaders without the guidance of self-appointed elites. What is at stake, really, is the “consent of the governed.”

It is.

    Spot on! I am so sick of hearing the media, Right of Left, tell me who is ELECTABLE! Whoever WE-THE-PEOPLE vote for is electable and right now, it looks like Cain has the best opportunity. He is creative, personable, a NON-politician, and has presented truly viable plans. I’m not quite ready to commit 100% yet, but … certainly leaning his way.

        Same here. The more they want Romney, the more I’m starting to like Cain. I just hope we can pull this off.

    The more I see & hear of Mittens, the more I think he is a rino!
    We have to get a good nominee. I like The Herminator, I hope he’s it.

    That said, I’d vote for Mr. Ed if he was up against the usurper! No way in hell should
    anyone vote for him….and if they stay home, that’s just as bad. They have to go out and vote for the (R), no matter what.
