She will represent the “money for nothing” voters and all indications are that the GOP will force an even more Left Wing candidate next time than this time so they will be stuck trying to out Lefty the owners of the Left Wing pulpit…Again.
Most people are not thinking now about the expanded authority the Establishment GOP grabbed at the convention this year, it won’t inspire any lively threads or be a topic that anyone cares about until the 2016 Primary structure is released and Conservatives realize that the deck is even more stacked against them than last year.
Proportional dispersing of early State delegates will end so the early Blue States and open primary states will give an enormous jump start to the Liberal GOP candidate that the Party throws its support behind early.
This will be followed by all the predictions of the “Inevitability” of this Liberal and of course the “Most Electable” mantra due to him being “Attractive to Moderates” will be recycled as if this ridiculous strategy was not proved a fairy tale with both McCain and Romney.
The early lead and habit that Conservatives have to fall for the same tired scam every 4 years will then cause bandwagon jumping from both Primary voters and financial contributors to the chosen Liberal’s campaign chest.
This advantage in money combined with the early delegate lead gleaned from States that never vote GOP in the General Election anyway will leave any Conservative Candidates hopelessly underfunded and demeaned by the National Party going into the States that do care enough about Primary integrity to have closed Primaries and also are possible GOP States in the General.
If any Conservative Candidate happens to posses the skills and force of personality to be a threat after all this the greatly reduced number of debates will be kicking in about then, leaving them little opportunity to shine. Then the likes of Coulter, Steyn, Will and the rest of the fake conservatives will begin condemning the threat and go “All In” redefining the chosen Liberal as a “Conservative” until the actual Conservative threat is neutralized.
Then the calls for “Unity” behind the “Candidate the people chose” will begin with straight faces from the architects of the Primary.
I will write all this several times between now and when it is too late to do anything about it, both here, on my blog and to all the relevant Party leaders as well as to several major papers editorial page (non will publish though). My letters will be ignored by the GOP because they will receive very little from Conservatives regarding this scam, no reason to fear a few “fringers” that have figured out the strategy while most are still buying it every 4 years.
Then I will take no satisfaction in saying “I told you so, ready to dump this Party yet?”, because the answer from Conservatives will still be “No way! We would be irrelevant for too long if we tried that!”
That is the same answer I have gotten since Clinton defeated Dole in 1996, I wonder how powerful a new Party would be now if Conservatives had left the GOP then?
