The Very Poor? Sir, I care not for the Very Poor, for they have safety nets sufficient unto their kind – and if they break, do we not fix them?
Behold our works and take pride! Are the vomitoria not brimming, that the Very Poor can in their turn sup on the bounty of our Great Nation?
-Mitt Romney, 2012
Well, Mr./Mrs. Conservative American, Romney seems destined to win the Republican Primary process. Many of us are unhappy with this result, and there is much wailing and gnashing of teeth on all quarters.
Let’s take a breath and calm down – what has Romney won? What have the other candidates lost? Nothing other than the right to lose to Barack Obama in an election that will make history.
What to do now?
Well, is anything actually any different? At the outset of the primary process it was apparent that whoever was selected from the process would require a very strong house and senate to keep him in line.
If that means cheerleading a neo-Reagan to victory, great. If that means working to attain a Veto-proof Congress that stands against the “progressive” onslaught of a second Obama term, so be it.
That Veto-proof Congress needs to be the Next Big Thing in Tea-Party-ite circles. But it must not be the only Next Thing.
The Republican party is in a shambles, torn by divisions between the Theocrats, the Big Govt soft-socialists, and the still-actualizing Tea Party Conservative Revivalist movement.
