The Worst/Best Thing That Could HappenPosted: 29 February 2012
Mitt wins Arizona and Michigan….really Santorum lost Michigan…if he would have said with the blue collar argument that he has made in the past we would have won, in my opinion…I would bet that women were the deal killer for Rick…….
I was listening to a couple of pundits discuss the primaries in Michigan and Arizona….they were predicting the winner and by how much and they were talking about the consequences of the outcomes and I got to thinking about that also……..what if Romney won the nomination or if Santorum wins what would be the direction of the party going forward.
This is just stuff that has been running around my head as I contemplate the 2012 election…..let’s say mitt wins the nomination and after a hard fought campaign he loses to Obama in November…how will that effect the GOP? My thought is that if the so-called moderate of the party could not win then the possibility that the party will take an even harder turn to the right trying to find that balancing point that could lead them to the White House…..IMO, this would be the worst thing that could happen to the party for the next generation.
Now the best thing that could happen to the GOP. Santorum wins a difficult fight for the nomination and after a dirty campaign from both sides he is defeated by Obama…….How would this effect the party? I think that with a loss using a far right candidate the party would then come to their senses and start trying to find and work on a winning strategy by pulling it self back to the conservative ideals that has worked in the past to elect Repubs to the White House……it would give them the incentive to start governing and cease all the divisive issues and work on plans that will give the country a fighting chance…..
I think that no matter who wins the nomination of the GOP it will change the party…….it could be for the better…..or it could be for the worse…….I realize that it will take more than one election for the system to change into a better system….but we have to start somewhere…….
