After the election of 2012 showed, Conservatives are not the power they thought they were. In fact, had no conservatives interfered with the Republican side of the race, the outcome could have been a Republican victory. Romney lost because he had to pretend he was a conservative to gain the nomination. His prime role after acquiring the nomination, was keeping the radical wing of his party from defecting.

If there was not a conservative litmus test to which the Republican Party had to pass, Obama would have had to run on his record on the economy with no help from Santorum, no help from Rick Perry, no help from Grover Norquist, no help from Michelle Bachmann, no help from Karl Rove, no help from Sheldon Adelson, no help from Todd Akins, no help from Mourdoch, no help from Rush Limbaugh, no help from Fox News….. and no help Rep. Issa.

It could have been a much tighter race if the conservative element THAT REALLY PISSES 60 PERCENT OF AMERICA OFF TO THE MAX, was not there….

Republicans are waking up. No hated conservative will be chairing a committee in the House this session. They will be chaired by those who voted for the Debt Ceiling Compromise two summers ago.

After spending a billion dollars, these PACS were able to get fewer Republicans to the polls than John McCain……“Freedomworks, Americans for Prosperity, Club for Growth, Heritage Action for America, Madison Project, Concerned Women of America, Susan B. Anthony, Gun Owners of America, etc. etc. etc, all who tap the spigot of wealthy sociopaths like the Koch Brothers, have nothing to show for all the rich people’s money they wasted….

They try to take credit for the Republican House, but very little of their money was spent there. Gerrymandering is responsible for returning the Republican House. Even then, strong conservatives in conservative districts still faced tough fights against Democratic challengers. Michelle Bachmann once the darling of Delaware’s trop-conservative David Anderson, after being behind, won by just hundreds of votes…..

Grover Norquist is facing the unthinkable. Republicans are calling him absolutely crazy like Hitler.

Republicans everywhere are waking up that walking into the public arena still covered in manure, makes others support the other party….

They are dusting off the moderate Republicans immigration reform, to go after Hispanic votes. Just a few short months earlier, they lambasted not deporting little Mexican boys as girls, as a sign of unprincipled conservative weakness. RINO your were called if you had compassion for children.

Paul Ryan, after lambasting Obama for removing $756 billion from Medicare even though he did the same in his Republican budget, has now offered up a new budget: missing $756 billion from Medicare……

Who appears to be moving forward? Moderates. People who put people first, and ideology second. They don’t believe in wasting money, but they are far from regular Tea Party stock who feel that any government program that does not directly give themselves a handout, is a waste of money.

Chris Christie: vilified for meeting with Obama after Hurricane Sandy, has a spread of approval ratings almost as wide as his girth.

John Boehner, despite the public face, is working with the President to isolate those radical Republican communists who want to destroy America’s government, and is quietly organizing a plan to put America back on the road to prosperity.

Eric Cantor after the election, is uncharacteristically amenabile.

Bobby Jindle who is moderate, is held in high regard.

Not one person has heard from Rick Santorum. (Is he too in Betty Ford?) Or is he “really” hiking the Appalachian Trail?

Fox News and Murdoch are pummeled at everything they say… Even Ann Coulter is saying we have to pass Obama’s tax increases. As well as William Kristol.

The big Republican donors all recognize that raising taxes is far cheaper to their bottom lines, than having the market retract over an artificial debt ceiling crises that again, never has to be….

FedEx Chairman and CEO Fred Smith, top executives from Northrop Grumman, Pratt & Whitney, TASC and RTI International Metals, David Langstaff, CEO of TASC, David Hess, head of Pratt & Whitney, Joe Echeverria, CEO of Deloitte, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson, Goldman Sachs Chief Executive Lloyd Blankfein, have all recently come out in favor of raising the top marginal rates!

Against this backdrop the Senate lost conservative Jim DeMint R-SC who felt the Heritage Foundation was not Conservative enough, so he gave up his Senate seat.

As wew watch Conservatives are turning into dust. As we watch we see an ineffective, uncompromising, and inept group of bitter old codgers, none of who have accomplished any good in their endeavors…. playing “nearer my God to Thee” as conservatism takes its long overdue dive to the ocean floor…..

If the Republicans can become the moderate party that “doesn’t waste money”…. they may have a shot… If they do anything conservative… They will lose much, much, much, much, much worse… the next time around…

America absolutely hates everything they stand for… $1 billion in advertising for nothing,…. says so.
