More Thoughts on the GOP

I started this blog on the 14th of March, but it seemed almost too over the top for me to get a real grasp on how to come to a conclusion, so I kept it as a draft, but I think it's time to get it posted.

Sarah Palin / Mitt Romney ticket . . .Wouldn't that pretty much satisfy the entire GOP? The moderates, the Tea Party, and those that will simply vote against Obama . . .

I've been watching all this for some time and with the Palins endorsing Gingrich, she sounds like Santorum, and Todd was rumored to be a secessionist, which should cover Paul's anti-government; the GOP might be considering a Romney/Palin or Palin/Romney ticket to rally the Tea Partiers, Evangelicals and the moderates. I've compared her to the same thing for her party that Obama was for his. Introduce him in the convention in a losing year for the democrat, 2004, then run him in 2008. Since the GOP doesn't seem too original, they might just be trying the same thing. They clearly planned to lose in 2008. I mean, running the guy that lost to GW in 2000 . . . The Teavangelicals would accept a Mormon on the ticket with Sarah P. and the moderates have no other choice but Romney if they vote republican. It's the perfect way to put the GOP constituents in the bondage the party needs to get the political power in the few rich hands that can bring big business and big government together! And if the GOP doesn't succeed by gaining the White House, the big business lobbyists can simply buy the favors, as always.
Getting down to the brass tacks of the situation, I truly believe politics is choreographed and this tortoise/hare GOP primary confirms it for me. It's one of two things. Either the GOP doesn't want to win 2012 or they want a brokered convention in which Sarah P. will once again be thrust to the national forefront, now with some experience under her belt. She does much better with a sudden rise to position, and that will leave much less time for folks to tire of her folksy colloquialisms. Considering what the GOP has introduced this year, it does appear that the pieces of the puzzle may be coming into place around Sarah. First there was Michele Bachmann, a woman, that did well for a time, albeit a short time, she still led in polls early on, but the party did rally around a woman for the top of the ticket. Huntsman made some sense, but of course, that doesn't really get you anywhere in American politics. Then there was Perry, who makes Sarah P. look qualified for membership in Mensa. Gingrich is cutting back, losing funding, and gaining no ground, so even if he hangs on to the convention, he's not going to have the delegates for the nomination. I don't think Rick Santorum can really sweep the party, in that there are far too many non Catholics in the Republican Party that really don't want to live by the Pope's rules or to "elect" an American Pope rather than a President. I think his abortion stand and "satan" talk would draw the charismatics and Baptists, though. He's already introduced too, too much religious extremism into the campaign for average Christianity, where as Sarah P. seems to maintain her beliefs in a more convenient perspective. Ron Paul simply isn't going to be the candidate, but since she's a best selling author, the "rogue" image really now belongs to Sarah, anyway. Who does that leave? Mitt Romney who has invested immensely in the bid for the White House, but just can't seem to grasp the brass ring for a big lead. Mitt and Sarah would make the perfect ticket, either way. The GOP already knows, even as a VP candidate, many of the constituents who voted McCain / Palin stated they voted for Sarah. I'm not sure the party can get her to play second fiddle again, but I don't think they will have any trouble putting her at the top of the ticket, and convincing Romney to run as the VP and wait for Sarah to quit mid-term. WIN/WIN. I do think Sarah would be an interesting debate opponent for Obama and I think she just might rattle his perfect oration. Sarah P. and Biden were more or less on a level playing field of trying to say the right thing at the right time in the right manner, but Obama is very scripted and smooth. And Sarah . . . well, the rebuttals should be interesting. I can just see him trying to get the teleprompter loaded with a response for some off the wall comment from her and he's predictable enough that she can write the few crib notes it would take, on her hand, to make the entire evening worth watching! Regardless of the election results in November, the direction of America won't change.
