Choose Your Steed Carefully

Perhaps I am reading more into this than is justified, but I have always put great stock in what the Left says and how they employ Saul Alinski tactics when things get a little to hot for them in an adversarial campaign. All the Demoncats are doing is waiting in line, looking for the slightest weakness in any of the surviving candidates, and picking them off one by one as they pop up with some sensitive social issue or another. Any moral or ethical indiscretion will do just as well.
Alinski always said that to be successful in "community organizing" one must be patient and wait for the enemy to make the first move. Never outline your own plans, simply attack and degrade what the other guy proposes, while you attack his character without mercy.

The feeding frenzy is about to begin in earnest as Rick Santorum is marginalized by the MSM and the Republican elite. He will fall quickly by the wayside following the FL primary and the next vulnerable target will be Newt Gingrich.

As has happened so often in the past, we are permitting ourselves (Conservatives and moderates alike) to be led around by the nose as we search desperately for the strongest opponent for Obama. As this smear fest plays itself out, I will remain uncommitted. I have made my choices in the past, and have been rebuffed by the powerful elite at every turn.

All I can say to you now is to make your choice of steed, and stick with him or her. There may come a time yet when your support will be validated. 2012 may not be the year, and the Presidential race may not be the most important one to focus on right now. We must maintain a House majority and work hard for one in the Senate as well. The most fashionable and presentable presidential candidate in the saddle will not win our country back. Our choices are being limited and our focus is being distracted from the more valuable prize here. The retention of our freedoms and the dissolution of the 60's Marxist coalition must be accomplished at any cost in the coming years.

John McCain's brother Mittens won't let the moderates down. He'll do anything to win the primaries so he can pull a McCain and "sorta of run" in the General.

I think all of this is good. I would rather see them go through the ringer now, then have surprises surface against Obama.

We will still see some surprises I am afraid; in the form of the inevitable "October surprise". To be sure, I agree that this walk down the muddy path is beneficial now Trestin.

Yes Odie, the die has been cast and the players are set to take the stage. Those behind the scenes have written this play and I am afraid we will see a rerun of 2008 with Mittens as the new lead. His makeup is constantly being changed to fit the role.
