Of course Conservatives were not fooled by Romney, he has an entire life as a committed, extreme Liberal.
Obama got much of the vote that he did because no democrat voters saw anything different or unique in Romney to convince them that the Nation would improve under his leadership.
Conservatives ***win ***votes, Liberal Republicans just try to say everything the focus groups tell them to say and assume the Conservatives will support them like hostages with no choice.
You cannot beat an incumbent by claiming you can “do better” while your entire resume shows that you agree with the man you are trying to oust on most everything but some minor points of nuance.
The Establishment GOP will never;
- Admit that they are wrong and that Conservatives told them they were wrong over and over again for YEARS
- Ever just quit the fantasy and register as democrats with all the politicians that they respect.
- Hesitate in any way before gearing up the same damn strategy with an even further left candidate the next time.
They also will just change the names on all the opinion articles and reprint them. “Most electable” and “Able to win Independents” and “Won’t scare off voters by being too Pro-Life” will once again be the chants that all the usual suspects regurgitate along with the standard “If you don’t support our Liberal, you are supporting their Liberal” guilt trip that they are sure will work just like in Kindergarten when they learned it.
Establishment GOPers are CERTAIN that they are right and that their plan will work if they just keep trying it enough times. They are just as certain that they have nothing to lose because a Conservative could NEVER win anyway regardless of the evidence that shows a clear Conservative message wins big almost every time it is tried.
