Perils of a Conservative Blogger

Most active Republicans recognize that our party cobbles together at least four constituencies.   These include the strong military--the social conservatives--the free market libertarian supporters of industry and finance--the libertarians for less government.

  Each of these groups has true believers who get testy with candidates or conservative bloggers who seem wobbly.  This post is about the perils of  a conservative blogger when your readers are ideologues to the death.

Starting with the strong military group–suppose on the blog one wanted to go along with Ron Paul and suggest we get out of other countries’ business, cut the bloated military budget and bring home the troops?  Crackpot!

And the social conservative–suppose one wanted to raise the question of why conservatives who hate government messing in lives have no problem with
meddling in peoples’ bedrooms?  Immoralist!  

The business people–suppose one  wanted Republicans to call Democrats’ bluff, raise some taxes on the very rich, and pull the rug from under the Dems’ excuses.  RINO!

Finally, small government folks.-- what if one was interested in Newt’s ideas that government can do some things, if government works smart?  RINO!

What fun it is to laugh and sing a blogging song tonight.  Jingle Bells.  Jingle Bells.

Has Blogger finally seen the light that the GOP has been hijacked by ideologues and that pragmatic policy has been torn asunder?

It is easier being a Democrat, Blogger. If you are for abortion you're in. If you think you have a right to others property, you're in. No experience... no problem.

If Romney gets the nomination, I'm voting for Obama. If Gingrich gets the nomination, I'm voting for Gingrich. End of story.

MikeD- There should be a way where you can vote 1/2 a vote for the Republican and 1/2 vote for the Democrat.

Sark, he can by voting for Romney.

OBAMA vs Romney

Sarkazein said...

Reagan supported the Brady Bill and signed the Mulford Act. I guess he and Obama are one in the same when it comes to the 2nd.

Mike D. said...

Good one, Wolf.

Sark,

Are you trying to win a romantic getaway with Mitt or something?

Sarkazein said...

Jealous are ya?

MikeD- Maybe Obama has room for one more on AF 1 to Hawaii this month... you'd better talk to Larry Sinclair for pointers first.

Mike D. said...

I don't get it, Sark. That just sounded like partisan mumbo jumbo political non-speak to me.

Hey, I think I hear a 'coyote' eating your baby! :-P
