At least one well-known conservative has begun speaking out-loud the notion that an Obama re-election might not be the very worst thing that could happen, either to the nation or to Republicans—even to REAL Republicans–that is, conservatives, members of the Party base whose mistrust of Obama is nearly equaled by their mistrust of Mitt Romney and the 2008 ‘Ghost of Romney past’, John McCain.
The best-selling author of “Looking out for Number One” and “Restoring the American Dream”, Robert Ringer has been a Libertarian/conservative for decades. And given 5 decades of Libertarian leanings, his support of Ron Paul should surprise no one.
But just prior to the Iowa Caucus, Ringer decided that should Ron Paul run the independent, third party campaign many so fear him capable of “and it resulted in Obama’s re-election, [Ringer] would be fine with that if it keeps Romney from taking the reins of power and feeding us small doses of socialism day in and day out.” (1)
He argues that as Obama’s 2008 election gave rise to the Tea Party movement, a repeat performance in 2012 could only re-invigorate that early, contagious Tea Party spirit which Ringer has found wanting over the past year. “Early on, I said that I preferred Obama over McCain because his Marxist agenda would finally wake up millions of apathetic Americans,” Ringer recalls of his 2008 position. (1)
“Unfortunately, the Tea Party has not kept the heat on either Obama or Congress. But if Obama is re-elected, maybe Tea Partiers will be jolted into rising up in earnest — 365 days a year — and will get serious about taking back America,” he continues. (1)
Well there is little question that Romney is hardly more than a younger version of John McCain, although perhaps more dangerous in his leftist leanings. And a White House ensconced Willard would indeed take great pleasure in cramming his hyper-arrogant, Northeastern liberal “I know what’s best for the little people” sentiments down the throats of those who VERY reluctantly voted for him in order to prevent ‘The One’ from further destruction of the nation.
But the re-election of Barack Hussein Obama would not be an opportunity of re-invigoration for the right, but rather an unmitigated disaster, a national tragedy and disgrace. In fact, both Obama AND his Massachusetts, Republican Party counterpart must be defeated in 2012. For although Romney would indeed feed the American people socialism in “small doses,” Obama has spent 4 years shoving it to us in large ones.
Besides, an additional 4 years of opportunity for Obama would NOT result in an uprising of prevention, but a further display of wanton cowardice on the part of 90% of Republican office holders.
Rather than being too clever by half in hoping an Obama victory might somehow lead to a future promised land of “taking the nation back,” it is mandatory that the American public remove from viable White House contention both Obama and Romney, the greater and the lesser threats to our nation. And it must be done before the 2012 election can once again be handed to one or the other of these treacherous, liberty hating reprobates by the American media.
