If Voters Want Everyone to Work Together, Why Do We Have Two Parties?
RINO’s need to realize that it they aren’t with us, they are with liberals.
Check it out:
Brent Bozell of the Media Research Center sent Eric Cantor a letter this past spring. Bozell was very alarmed over what he had learned Eric Cantor intended to do. So he sent him a letter warning him that he might not want to go through with this and it could be disastrous.
Here’s how the letter begins. “Dear Majority Leader Cantor: Conservative leaders were stunned to learn that you will be headlining a conference in Florida this weekend that is, purely and simply, a direct attack on Tea Party conservatives. Worse still, this event is sponsored in part by ultra-liberal financier/activist George Soros and organized labor — both of which have openly, repeatedly — and often viciously — waged war on conservatives and Republicans for years.”
You don’t think people that live in Virginia 7 knew things like this? Cantor showing up at an anti-Tea Party rally? Bad enough that, but that it was sponsored by George Soros? I still think Chris Christie’s political fortunes were sealed with that arm-in-arm embrace photo with Barack Obama after Hurricane Sandy, and I think a picture of Eric Cantor being embraced by Obama walking into some room in the White House to talk about immigration didn’t help, either.
Optics matter. The people that vote for Eric Cantor want him to stop, in a political sense. They want him to defeat Barack Obama. Otherwise they would vote Democrat. They’re voting Republican because they oppose Obama. They’re not voting for Cantor to work with Obama. Otherwise they’d just elect all Democrats everywhere. This is the stupidest, silliest notion the Republicans have bought into. It’s a toss-up between the only people that matter in elections are moderates, independents, that’s a big trick they’ve fallen for, and this idea that their own voters are electing them to cross the aisle and compromise and work with and help the Democrats. And whatever you do, don’t be confrontational.
