It should come as no surprise to readers of this website that having arrived late in the election season with a chance for Republicans to win the White House, and perhaps strengthen in Congress, with taking the Senate an at least plausible proposition, the turn-coats, the RINOs, the opportunists and the skunks will now come out of the woodwork to sabotage as many Republicans as possible. Every media venue is beginning to drag them out from behind the curtains, and while a mighty wind struck New Jersey on Monday, an blowhard nearly equal to Hurricane Sandy both in breadth and volume sought on Wednesday to capitalize on the storm’s aftermath, inviting the man from the city that blows hard seemingly in perpetuity to join him on the Jersey shore. Quite a couple this pair of wind generators made, missing no photo-op to look very gubernatorial and presidential, respectively. Much like Barack Obama claims it’s wrong to politicize Libya (while politicizing Libya,) Governor Christie took full advantage of the opportunity to improve his own position with New Jersey voters, and yes, maybe even voters nationally, with an eye toward 2016.
Naturally, for that to work out, Romney would need to lose next week, and by playing Oliver Hardy to Obama’s Stanley Laurel, Christie did his best to position himself in all respects. Of course, this is merely the presidential scene. Other saboteurs were widely afoot. Tucker Carlson did his level best to undercut Richard Mourdock in Indiana, suggesting that the Senate candidate cannot win, a fact that the long-time Dick Lugar protoge apparently finds satisfying, so it’s what I suggested long ago: He’s wealthy enough not to be worried about Obama-care. To quote one-term Texas Governor Maw Richards, “he can’t hepp it, he was born with a silver foot in his mouth.” Naturally, after his blatant sabotage on FoxNews today, I’d suggest that rather than his foot, it had been Carlson’s head, though stuck in a different orifice.
I hope my fellow conservatives are working hard to get out the vote for our Senate candidates, because whatever happens at the top of the ticket, we simply must take the Senate. I’m not saying Mitt Romney will lose, as he in fact looks fairly strong at the moment, but let’s be honest about how things will go even if he wins but Harry Reid maintains control of the Senate. With Boehner in the House, conservative concerns are certain to get rolled at every turn if we don’t re-take the Senate.
I expect that in the days to come, we will begin to see a parade of RINOs stepping out to deal dirt to conservative candidates. The establishment wing of the party doesn’t take defeat easily, and while we conservatives are always expected to rally to their candidates, they never seem to return the favor, instead undercutting conservatives. Some have speculated the Christie’s actions are part of a ploy to somehow sabotage Obama, but that’s not it at all. That’s far too complicated a ploy for the simple optics that Christie is gaining from this maneuver. He’s simply an opportunist, and since his is a deep blue state, this is a way of staying in favor with the people of New Jersey, in part to position himself for his re-election and in part in case he makes a bid for the White House in 2016 in the wake of a Romney loss his actions today were intended to assist. Quite simply, this kills two birds with one stone, and I knew when he erupted yesterday about not giving “a damn” for the politics, that just like Obama, a political move on his part was imminent. If it hadn’t been all about political “optics,” he wouldn’t have spent all his time on photo-ops. Whatever other “October Surprises” might be in the offing, this one was entirely of Christie’s making.
As this post goes to press, almost as if by way of confirming my thesis, both New York’s Mayor Nanny Doomberg and retired General and affirmative action beneficiary Colin Bowell have shockingly endorsed Barack Obama. I expect my readers to take it easy after that news as the mainstream media attempts to portray this as a surprise. Meanwhile, back on the East Coast, now that one of the mighty windbags has departed the scene, things aren’t going so well as thousands upon thousands of residents find themselves without shelter or food, and more than three million are still without power. They’re fighting over fuel at the now sparse gas stations. They’re siphoning it out of cars for use in generators, showing the utter lack of preparedness of so many governments in the region. Once again, the coward-in-chief is off in Las Vegas. I guess when the real hard work needs to be done, Obama can be counted on to arrive in the city he told people they ought not go.
I expect the parade of RINO back-stabbers to continue through the weekend. It’s what they do.
