Brown: getting past stupid

Saturday, January 23rd, 2010

I suspect that the Talk Show Mafia and pundits are correct…Brown isn’t a conservative.  Not in the “can’t win” way they insist in Tancredo, Santorium, Hayworth and others that couldn’t keep or gain their seats.

See, none of these understood one fundamental fact:  when you become the senator, congressman, governor, president, you represent ALL the people, not just your base.  If a candidate tells Independents and Democrats that they will push for an agenda and principles that these groups do NOT share or agree with, why on earth should they vote for the candidate?

Brown made his positions on key issues well known, issues SHARED by most.  They weren’t Liberal issues, they were issues that affected most of the people in MA and issues MOST cared about.  And to show just how past stupid this man is, he deliberately gave all sides the impression that he was willing to listen and learn for the good of MA and America by giving due to BOTH parties leaders.  His 200k miles truck told the voter that he KNEW how to stretch a dollar.  His kidding with his daughters endeared him to fathers (and grown kids) around the nation; he was just like them. 

And when he stared right at the camera and said that there are some things that there is no negotiating…like the economy and the war on terror…millions of MA voters felt justified in crossing party lines.

More importantly, millions in other states, all across the nation forgot about how the party of Republicans had so disappointed their “base. ”  This was like seeing a new smart phone…and thinking of changing back to an old carrier that really wasn’t that bad.

The only thing the party of Republicans–and those who support them–has to do is be there when the Malkins, Becks, Ingrahams, and their minions are trying to close the door and give all those Independents and cross over Democrats a conservative litmus test.  Tell them to step aside, the ONLY viable party that can stop the Dems as Brown stopped Obamacare wants to get off stupid, thank you.

Stuck on Stupid

There’s a really good reason that the “tea party” people make most pundits nervous.  They aren’t “conservatives”, although they most certainly lean right on the issue of health care.  They aren’t really “liberal” either, but most I gather wanted a “Black man” to occupy the top seat.

Glenn Beck, Dennis Miller, and president wannabes pretend to be one of them and all would love to think that the group is big enough to form a third party that can take on both the Dems and the GOP.

Hate to break it to ya all but the tea party that so scares and excites both the Left and the Right are Independents…the REAL majority that cannot get together long enough to form a party or be controlled.

Right now, this group is angry as all get out at the Left.  They have good, solid reasons for their anger.  The Left has had one year to take care of the things they care about…the economy, the courts, and terror.  Three things GWB and company EXCELLED in.

The only other VIABLE party, the party of REPUBLICANS are looking mighty good right now.

And what do the so called base do?  REMIND these voters what a terrible job Bush and the GOP did when they were in power!

Is this stupid or what?

I mean really, has NONE of them ever sold anything?  You don’t push YOUR product by constantly reminding the customer of how unhappy you are with the company (party) you belong to.  It says more about YOUR integrity and YOUR intelligence in remaining than it ever says about the party you are supposed to represent.

If you really want to show that you stand for principles…make sure that principles include loyalty…and if you can’t give that to a party, then PLEASE go create/join one that you can.

Leave the party of Republicans to Republicans, so that in 2010, those tea party and other Independents can freely join them when they put America first.
