Fisking Myself My "Mitt Romney/GOP You've got four years" post

3 months ago to the day I wrote the post that is going to fol­low. I sus­pected it would not endear me to what I believed would be the newly elected Mitt Rom­ney but it had to be said so I wrote it ready to go in the morning.

As I’ve men­tioned it was com­ing I thought my read­er­ship should see it, but I’m also going to include com­men­tary in ital­ics after each, pretty much Fisk­ing Myself to update it for the real­ity of today.

You’re now com­mand­ing offi­cer. You’ve got 4 hours to break through that beach­head. lf you don’t make it, I’ll fire you.

Pat­ton 1970

As Amer­ica wakes up to the elec­tion of Mitt Rom­ney as pres­i­dent of United States I’m writ­ing this in August specif­i­cally to answer those peo­ple who for months are wor­ried about Mitt Rom­ney as president.

Amer­ica has a lot of wor­ries ahead of her now, but that one worry is now no longer in play

I totally under­stand your wor­ries. He was gov­er­nor of Mass­a­chu­setts for 4 years, there is a rea­son why I didn’t sup­port him in the primaries,

Per­haps that’s why the Amer­i­can peo­ple didn’t sup­port him in the gen­eral elec­tion.

how­ever he is infi­nitely bet­ter than Obama

As the Amer­i­can peo­ple will soon discover

thus I sup­ported him all out

The only sign in front of my house was to oppose Ques­tion 2 (my one win­ning vote of the night)

and he has now been elected president.

feel free to insert any taunt you want here.

This doesn’t change any of the wor­ries that we’ve shared and now our real task begins.

Now we have dif­fer­ent wor­ries and a dif­fer­ent task.

The thing I fear the most about Mitt is that he will form a team with Estab­lish­ment GOP and lib­er­als in the House.

Instead it will be gov­ern­ment by grid­lock, while sev­eral fresh­men lost (Ann Marie Buerkle was a par­tic­u­lar heart­break in NY-​24) the GOP retains the house and because redis­trict­ing took place after 2010 has the lines drawn to help keep it

The Estab­lish­ment gets it’s spend­ing, lib­er­als get a piece of the action and Rom­ney is hailed as “Bipartisan”.

Instead you have a more con­ser­v­a­tive GOP base that will drive house races. 

And social con­ser­vatism goes out the win­dow, here comes the next batch of David Souters.

Here comes the next batch of Elena Kagens it won’t be pretty but at least we won’t be doing it to ourselves

This can be stopped. If there is one thing we can be sure of is that Mitt Rom­ney is vul­ner­a­ble to polit­i­cal pressure,

If the democ­rats had run the “flip flop” cam­paign instead of the “evil con­ser­v­a­tive” cam­paign the pop­u­lar vote num­bers would have been bigger.

it is up to us of the right to hold him to his promises

Well one prob­lem solved.

and to hold the GOP, par­tic­u­larly in the house to the cause of fis­cal respon­si­bil­ity and social conservatism.

That task remains.

The GOP needs to know that the Tea Party didn’t elect them because we love the let­ter “R” but because we believe in some­thing and expect it to be done.

The tea party remains the only real effec­tive power in the GOP

If the GOP doesn’t, if they decide they don’t need fis­cal or social con­ser­v­a­tives then they should pay.

and if the GOP doesn’t want our votes we will hap­pily with­hold them

It could be that my fears are unfounded, it could be that now that he has reached the pin­na­cle of elected office he will feel secure enough to let the real con­ser­v­a­tive that lives inside out to gov­ern. I would be delighted for this to be the case.

Alas that great mys­tery shall never be answered.

Basi­cally GOP you’re on probation,

Estab­lish­ment GOP your pro­ba­tion is revoked. No more “mod­er­ate” candidates

mem­bers of con­gress you’ll have till 2014, Mr. Pres­i­dent Rom­ney I’ll give you till 2015,

mem­bers of con­gress you are the last line of defense

you either come through or it’s time for an actual 3rd party and remem­ber we tea party peo­ple ARE the peo­ple who do the heavy lifting.

funny how the “mod­er­ate” wing gets the nom­i­nee and it’s the con­ser­v­a­tives who are expected to work to get them elected

You’ve got one shot, don’t blow it.

Look on the bright side Gov Rom­ney none of the next four years will be your fault, it will be ours.

3 months ago to the day I wrote the post that is going to follow. I suspected it would not endear me to what I believed would be the newly elected Mitt Romney but it had to be said so I wrote it ready to go in the morning.

As I’ve mentioned it was coming I thought my readership should see it, but I’m also going to include commentary in italics after each, pretty much Fisking Myself to update it for the reality of today.

You’re now commanding officer. You’ve got 4 hours to break through that beachhead. lf you don’t make it, I’ll fire you.

America has a lot of worries ahead of her now, but that one worry is now no longer in play

I totally understand your worries. He was governor of Massachusetts for 4 years, there is a reason why I didn’t support him in the primaries,

Perhaps that’s why the American people didn’t support him in the general election.

however he is infinitely better than Obama

As the American people will soon discover

thus I supported him all out

The only sign in front of my house was to oppose Question 2 (my one winning vote of the night)

and he has now been elected president.

feel free to insert any taunt you want here.

This doesn’t change any of the worries that we’ve shared and now our real task begins.

Now we have different worries and a different task.

The thing I fear the most about Mitt is that he will form a team with Establishment GOP and liberals in the House.

Instead it will be government by gridlock, while several freshmen lost (Ann Marie Buerkle was a particular heartbreak in NY-24) the GOP retains the house and because redistricting took place after 2010 has the lines drawn to help keep it

The Establishment gets it’s spending, liberals get a piece of the action and Romney is hailed as “Bipartisan”.

Instead you have a more conservative GOP base that will drive house races.  

And social conservatism goes out the window, here comes the next batch of David Souters.

Here comes the next batch of Elena Kagens it won’t be pretty but at least we won’t be doing it to ourselves

This can be stopped. If there is one thing we can be sure of is that Mitt Romney is vulnerable to political pressure,

If the democrats had run the “flip flop” campaign instead of the “evil conservative” campaign the popular vote numbers would have been bigger.

it is up to us of the right to hold him to his promises

Well one problem solved.

and to hold the GOP, particularly in the house to the cause of fiscal responsibility and social conservatism.

That task remains.

The GOP needs to know that the Tea Party didn’t elect them because we love the letter “R” but because we believe in something and expect it to be done.

The tea party remains the only real effective power in the GOP

If the GOP doesn’t, if they decide they don’t need fiscal or social conservatives then they should pay.

and if the GOP doesn’t want our votes we will happily withhold them

It could be that my fears are unfounded, it could be that now that he has reached the pinnacle of elected office he will feel secure enough to let the real conservative that lives inside out to govern. I would be delighted for this to be the case.

Alas that great mystery shall never be answered.

Basically GOP you’re on probation,

Establishment GOP your probation is revoked.  No more “moderate” candidates

members of congress you’ll have till 2014, Mr. President Romney I’ll give you till 2015,

members of congress you are the last line of defense

you either come through or it’s time for an actual 3rd party and remember we tea party people ARE the people who do the heavy lifting.

funny how the “moderate” wing gets the nominee and it’s the conservatives who are expected to work to get them elected

You’ve got one shot, don’t blow it.

Look on the bright side Gov Romney none of the next four years will be your fault, it will be ours.
