Analysis of what went wrong for Republicans in 2008 Part 3

The other day I heard the audio of Nebraska Republican Senator Chuck Hagel attacking Rush Limbaugh while Hagel was speaking at John Hopkins University. Chuck Hagel pimped himself out to Obama to follow him around the country, so Obama could use him as a prop to fool people into thinking that Obama could be bipartisan and reach across the aisle. Thank goodness that Chuck is retiring from the U.S Senate when his term is up in 2009. For those of you who don't know Chuck Hagel, Hagel was one of three Republican Senators who supported the legislation proposed by Democrats to require a troop withdrawal to begin within 120 day. On immigration, Senator Hagel supported the infamous amnesty bill and a "guest worker program" for illegal aliens. Chuck Hagel is a John McCain style Republican, and he represents the problem with the image of the Republican Party. I remember a week before the Presidential Election, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina was campaigning with John McCain. Lindsey Graham is the same so called Republican that called conservatives "nativists and racists" for not supporting the illegal amnesty bill that himself, Chuck Hagel and John McCain supported. Also this is the same Lindsey Graham that was sucking up to the racist Hispanic group "La Raza". Listen to what Graham had to say about McCain and Kennedy while addressing La Raza.

During that same time, Another so called Republican Arnold Schwartznegger also helped to campaign for McCain. As a Governor, Arnold also supported the amnesty bill and is a global warming hoax alarmist. John McCain's best friends are Connecticut Senator Joseph Lieberman and Lindsey Graham. I have good news also about Graham. He's also retiring at the end of his term. On top of that Senator Trent Lott of Mississippi is also retiring. Maybe these "new age" fake conservatives see the political tea leaves on the wall. These example just illustrate how bad the problem was among Republicans in the Senate. We as conservatives went lock and step behind McCain. How we voted in the Presidential Election was exactly how the Democrats voted in 2004 Presidential Election. Democrats didn't really like John Kerry, they "tolerated" John Kerry. They originally supported Howard Dean, but his mental break down rant made him a non viable candidate. John Kerry became "The anyone but Bush vote". In this election for the conservatives that did vote, John McCain became the "anyone but Barack Obama" vote. Speaking of John Kerry, him and John McCain are also good friends. At one time John Kerry asked McCain to switch parties and become a Democrat. So when it was all said and done, Conservatives didn't have a candidate to rally around for President. We had a "hold your nose" and vote for candidate. With McCain there was no way to build a powerful grass root front to rally around him. The rest is history. That is why if it weren't for Governor Palin, McCain would have lost by much more then just four percentage points in the popular vote. The cure for Republicans is as simple as simple can get. They need to rediscover and totally embrace conservatism to it's core. Then and only then will they regain congress and kick the "turkey elect" out of the White House. That's all there is too it.
