Some Say it's Over
What does that mean for the GOP in November and beyond?
Not much good, if you're a Conservative, or if you wnat to despair over many, many ways in which the GOP has abandoned virtually every position that made the GOP, well, the GOP. Not the Gipper's GOP, for sure.
Here's Graham's fair warning:
So it is over. Finished. In November, we'll be sending out our most liberal, least trustworthy candidate vs. to take on Hillary Clinton—perhaps not more liberal than Barack Obama, but certainly far less trustworthy.He's reaching for Bushmills. I don't feel quite that same pull, but I can understand the motivation.
And the worst part for the Right is that McCain will have won the nomination while ignoring, insulting and, as of this weekend, shamelessly lying about conservatives and conservatism.
You think he supported amnesty six months ago? You think he was squishy on tax cuts and judicial nominees before? Wait until he has the power to anger every conservative in America, and feel good about it.
Every day, he dreams of a world filled with happy Democrats and insulted Republicans. And he is, thanks to Florida, the presidential nominee of the Republican party.
"We're not going to achieve that [a litany of what Washington needs] by sending the same people back to Washington, just to sit in different chairs."From Romney's concession speech. Can I have an amen?
