Is the GOP Fed Up?
Michael Moore ought to be a national punchline, and the Democrats ought to be still paying for having him in Carter's box at the convention. Rosie O'Donnell's talking 9/11 conspiracy theories, and the networks are falling all over themselves to sign her up long-term. Nancy Pelosi's refusing to meet with President Bush after practically snuggling Bashir Assad. The Daily Kos moonbat crap has infected the culture at large, and the Democrats' ambition vastly outweighs their sense of decenc
I think he's right. The general mood amongst Democrats is that America, Republicans, and apparently Mormons are evil. These are attitudes that fly directly in the face of what built this great country, and Republicans are tired of it.
I've long wondered why Republicans don't stand up and be fight for some respect--or at least decency. Mitt Romney was asked by Mike Wallace when he and his wife first had sex! This is ridiculous, and if I were in his shoes I would say "That's none of your damn business, Mike," and the interview would be over then and there. Instead, he laughed it off.
The GOP base is a bit like the Dem base in 2003; we want a fighter. “Michael Moore, go **** yourself” isn't exactly the inspiring rhetoric we'd like to leave in the history books, but I think it accurately represents the attitudes of the GOP base right now. I mean, really, Al Sharpton is bellowing that Mormons [or Republicans] don’t believe in God? Sharpton’s demagoguery got somebody burned to death! Why is this man taken seriously?
We go into Kosovo to save Muslims, and nobody remembers. We go into Afghanistan and free a people from the Taliban’s barbarism, and nobody gives America credit. We go into Iraq to topple a dictator, and the world thinks we’re worse than he was. We’re the first one on the scene when a tsunami levels the other half of the world and everybody still thinks we’re the bad guys. There might have been a time when the Republican base was willing to hear out someone’s thoughtful criticism of American policy, but right now, they’re sick of itThis is spot on. The vast majority of Republicans are fed up with the bile we are being fed by the media and by people like Rosie and Michael Moore. That's why when we see someone like Mitt Romney take on Al Sharpton, or Fred Thompson take on Michael Moore, it warms our hearts. We want to see a candidate who will demand some respect and decency from a party that seems to have lost both.
