If Romney Wins...

Conservatives' work is never done:
CALLER:  Too many Republicans apologize for wanting conservative fiscal policy, and we gotta stop apologizing for that, and I think we're there now.
RUSH:  Well, that's yet to be seen, but we're on the right road in that regard.  Look, I don't want to go there now.  I'm gonna do that after the election, but there are challenges....  
...if Romney wins, there will be a competition in the Republican Party for people who want to take credit for it.  Basically you're going to have two factions.  One faction will be the Republican establishment, which will say their strategy of moderation, cooperation, reaching across the aisle, not scaring the independents, Romney's first debate performance, that's what did it.  
The other faction will be the Tea Party and conservatives who will say, "If you guys don't wake up and realize that what won this election for you is this far-left agenda of the Democrat Party scaring this country to the point that people didn't want any more of it, if you don't realize what that means, you're gonna have to go back to the 2010 midterms. If you want to understand why Romney won this election, go back to the 2010 midterms.  Everything Obama stands for was rejected and there wasn't a Republican on the ballot then." 
CALLER:  That's right.  I agree. 
RUSH:  But that's for down the road.  That may not even materialize.  But if it does, that will be the... you know, even in the best families, there are arguments and there are disagreements, and it'll be the case here in due course.  But if Romney wins, there will still be a lot of work to do. 


  1. When Romney wins is when the real work begins/.

    1. I'm tempted to just say ditto, but my verbosity prevents it.

      Romney winning affords true conservatives the opportunity to have an actual seat at the table, and have an opportunity to impact the dialogue and decision-making. Should Obama win, that will not be the case. I have no illusions that it will be easy to influence the type of change necessary. It will be hard, and the real Tea Party work will have to start even before inauguration day. But eschewing Romney now, and contributing to an Obama win will guarantee that there will be no seat at the table.

  2. As someone who started following politics as a naive 12 year old, wondering why oh why the republicans weren't more concerned with Clinton handing commie China weapon tech, to the jaded realist that I've become, I now know the bottom line:

    The banks own this country lock, stock and barrel and Romney's campaign donations prove that he's their boy. Mark my words-the collectivism will continue as the strategic people in the federal government have soldout to these interests. These people want a communist America with them as the haves and the rest of us as the have nots. Their private islands have been purchsed, their Strangelove bunkers are well-stocked, and they want to reduce the population. In their minds, the people pose absolutely no threat.
