Oh for a coherent conservative American politician

Thank you Iain Murray for your post at The Corner. Now if we can just find one coherent conservative American politician to deliver the same message to President Obama, and more importantly to the whole country, perhaps, just perhaps we can be back on track towards a more positive future.

Steele owes me an apology, not Rush.

Michael Steele does not owe Rush Limbaugh an apology, even though he was foolish and indiscreet in his comments. Mr. Steele does however owe me an apology for pretending to represent me and then demonstrating that he doesn’t get it at all.

As the leader, apparently administrative leader only, of the RNC, Mr. Steele’s casual dismissal of Rush is an overt display of what is wrong with our party, and why it has become difficult to support the RNC. What Mr. Steele and other Republicans don’t understand is that Rush Limbaugh says the things that many conservatives are thinking and only wish we could voice so well. We don’t listen to Rush to learn what to think, although we often are enlightened. We listen to Rush because he thinks and speaks like we do.

When the RNC decides they want Republicans to win again they and their candidates will sound much more like Mr. Limbaugh, and indeed like the average American, than they can apparently realize now. Until they understand that I’m afraid we will continue to feel abandoned.

Thanks Mark Steyn at The Corner for getting it.

We need at least one more for a movement…

At least there is one elected Republican who understands that conservatism is the key, not only to a better America, but also to winning elections. Now if we can just find at least one more to join Congressman Tom Price we could consider it a movement.

Thank you National Review Online’s The Corner for linking this.

I’m disappointed in you Rush.

I can’t believe what I read from Rush Limbaugh this morning; Rush actually advocates caving in to liberal socialism, which is the Democrat party, and compromising on the obscene “stimulus” bill.

I’m disappointed in you Rush.

Up till now you have always called a commie a commie; taught millions of Americans to never compromise their principles and that moderates were simply people without conviction. And you have been right.

I can only hope you are once again simply pointing out the absurd with absurdity. President Obama will never go for your plan because it would concede the country to conservatism forever. As you point out, while for various reasons the majority in the country did vote for President Obama, a far larger majority oppose the liberal tax and spend approach to government when it is exposed plainly for them. If the Dems were to take your bait they would be acknowledging that while they can win elections they cannot win the the arena of ideas and ideals.

Come back to the right Rush, let us know we haven’t lost you to moderation.
