Mitt Romney’s loss creates GOP leadership vacuum
The face of the GOP for much of the last year, the failed presidential candidate has been a virtual ghost since his defeat Nov. 6. He has quietly weathered the fallout of the campaign from the seclusion of his Southern California home, emerging only momentarily for a private lunch at the White House with President Barack Obama on Thursday.

Mitt Romney’s loss creates GOP leadership vacuum
That’s right, blame it on Mitt Romney, it’s NOT his fault that he was the weakest offering the GOP could have ran, he was just glad to be there. He gave it the best shot he was capable of and he lost. Sorta reminds you of 2008 and the GOP offering then when John McCain couldn’t get the job done.
Seems to me that *some* pointed out then that the GOP was faltering badly!
If you run weak candidates you get a poor showing. I am NOT a Political Science major and even I know that. I have to wonder just what it is the current GOP leadership does know about running a winning campaign.
The GOP has been leaderless for a LONG time. You doubt that? Think back a bit, before Reince Priebus, do you remember Michael Steele? Sadly, yes, I do, and I remember him as an incredibly weak individual that had NO leadership ability whatsoever.
I hear friends and fellow bloggers saying ‘The GOP needs to get their act together and get the show on the road.’
*The SHOW* should have been on the road 6 or 8 years ago. The GOP has been rapidly proving that they are the most useless entity in American politics.
As far back as 6 years ago I was trying hard to point out the problems of the GOP and its utter lack of REAL leadership. I advocated that maybe it was time for the birth of a NEW political party, a Conservative Party, but when I tried to bring that up I was told that I had NO idea what I was talking about and that a 3rd party would ruin America and kill the GOP.
Killing the GOP is a not a bad idea, America IS ruined and a 3rd party had nothing to do with it.
For 2 elections now the GOP, in its weakened state of disillusionment has been soundly defeated by the Democrats in the race for the White House. For 2 elections the GOP has been unable to run a candidate that could defeat the most unqualified person to ever sit in the Oval Office.
To this very day there are MANY in America that claim the GOP has merely gone off track and that it really CAN be repaired. To these people I say; YOU are the reason Barack Hussein Obama won the White House for 2 terms.
YOU, those that were too blind to see what was happening with the GOP and RINOs that were pushed upon us by their pathetic leadership!
YOU bear the responsibility for the state of this nation as much as any Democrat in Congress or the House you *staunch* Republicans!
I am near a point of not giving a damn, of just standing MY ground on my piece of land right here in Texas and saying to hell with the naysayers, the apathetic asshats and the do-nothing talkers that infest the United States.
“If I had to tell you somebody who is the leader of the party right now, I couldn’t,” said Amy Kremer, chairman of the Tea Party Express, which is among the conservative factions vying for increased influence. “There’s a void right now.”
Amy doesn’t know who the leaders are? Well Amy, you can thank your TEA Party for that little faux pas.
In its inception The TEA Party was a grand idea; limited government, uphold the U.S. Constitution, fiscal responsibility and free markets, all wonderful ideas and a great platform, except for one thing; the TEA Party didn’t want anyone telling them about leadership or how to get things done.
Basically the TEA Party had the idea of ‘let’s just show up, wave some signs and get our message across to whoever will listen’.
Sounds a lot like a plan that the Ron Paul organization would come up with doesn’t it? Well, here in MY part of Texas that is exactly what the TEA Party became, a Ron Paul love fest, and decent people walked away in great numbers when the Libertarians took over.
Once upon a time you could LEAD people and get things accomplished but the TEA Party changed that, their *we don’t have leaders, we’re all free thinkers, we’re ALL leaders* bullshit has done more to HURT the Conservative cause than help.
You’ve heard the expression *Too many Chiefs and not enough Indians*?
Until the GOP, RNC and TEA Party realize that being a politically correct Caspar Milquetoast doesn’t make you a good leader, the GOP, RNC and the TEA Party will remain as exactly what they are; rudderless ships that never get anywhere.
If Conservatives want to reshape this nation and take it back to Conservative values, they are going to have to get LOUD and PROUD, ruffle feathers, speak the truth, speak it boldly and NEVER back away from the fight!
I have a dear friend here in Rowlett, her name is Ann and she is as much a PATRIOT as anyone I know. Ann sent me this video and I just wanted to say THANK YOU!
If we can get men and women like this fired up we can retake the White House, restore Conservatism to the United States and take America back to the greatness we once enjoyed.
