I read the New York Post this morning and, reluctantly, the weekly Peggy Noonan column. Noonan is a centrist RINO who thinks she represents mainstream American conservative thinking because she wrote speeches for Ronald Reagan over thirty years ago. You can read her article titled “Obama Can Lose” here:
The traitorous Noonan—who supported, shrilled and voted for Obama in 2008—writes that even if the economy turns around, inflation calms and mid east unrest subsides, Obama will lose in 2012. According this shrill, the only way Obama will win is if the GOP fails to “nominate, recruit and support candidates who can speak to the entire country, who have serious experience and accomplishments, who are grounded and credible, then they will win centrist support.” She also claims that “Republicans voting in recent presidential primaries have tended to pick the candidates who are viewed as the moderate in the race — Bob Dole in 1996, George W. Bush in 2000, John McCain in 2008.”
What the hell does that mean? It means centrism has failed twice since Dole and McCain lost and Bush only narrowly and controversially beat Gore in 2000. Reading this I am offended by a political commentator like Noonan, who is treated like a guru by many in the media, is simply SO OUT OF TOUCH with no clear understanding of what is going on around in the country.
Think the majority of this country still wants centrism? One would only have to point to the freak out that occurred across the country when the so called “centrist yearning” public adamantly rejected the fake budget deal that passed last week.
The fact of the matter is, the majority of the country is tired of compromisers, appeasers, middle of the roaders and centrists. Which brings me to Mitt Romney.
