The Republican Party has more in common with the old Soviet Communists that they would care to admit. Rather than leave it up to voters to decide who the candidate will be, they rig the system in favor of their anointed one is. In 1988, they choose Papa Bush. In 1996, it was Bob Dole’s turn. In 2000 they railroaded McCain in favor of George W. Bush. In 2008, they made it up to McCain by favoring him. Now in 2012, they have chosen Mitt Romney. Karl Rove is behind Romney’s campaign and has assembled Bush’s old contributors. The game is fixed in favor of Romney.
By all accounts this should have been Mitt Romney’s turn to win the Republican nomination and the presidency. In a survey last week he was the only Republican who topped Barack Obama in national polls. Now, after bin Laden, one has to wonder.
What still makes Romney strong?
First there is the money. Insiders have told me that Karl Rove has been advising the campaign and some insist that he is the mastermind behind this new formidable fundraising juggernaut for Romney.
My former boss, George Herbert Walker Bush is among those, although he is savvy enough to know that endorsements can hurt as well as help a candidate.
When Papa Bush endorsed someone, that means the game is over. This explains the lies and smear campaign doen by the RNC against Donald Trump. This explains Rove and others attacking Palin and Bachmann. The truth is the GOP is not Conservative it is Center left. Just like the Old Soviet Politburo, they get their way.
America needs a Conservative choice!
