There is More than One GOP Candidate Who Can Beat Obama
We have been told throughout this process by the media, by the conservative media, by anybody that is considered to be part of the establishment, that Perry, Bachmann, Cain, Newt, Mitt, Santorum, can’t win. We have been told over and over and over again, if Perry, Bachmann, Cain, Newt, Mitt, Santorum get the nomination, then Obama automatically wins. We have been hearing and reading this for months. Members of both party establishments say it, that the only Republican who has a prayer of beating Obama is Romney. My friends, I am here to tell you I simply don’t subscribe. It has become conventional wisdom. And you know me and conventional wisdom. When conventional wisdom forms, I go the other way. Conventional wisdom is groupthink. In other words, the Democrats, the Drive-Bys, Republican “insiders” will not admit that anybody can beat Obama.
Do you believe this to be true? Do you believe that there is only one candidate who can beat Obama? I submit to you that, if that’s what everybody thought, Mitt would be in the 70 percents. He’d certainly be above 30. But he can’t get above 30 in a Republican primary poll, outside of New Hampshire. However, in poll after poll, anecdotal story after anecdotal story, and with news now that Obama’s approval numbers are lower than Carter’s, Obama’s approval numbers are lower than Lyndon Johnson’s before LBJ stepped down. We can clearly see that Obama is in trouble.
