A tale of two pols and two medias

Hey Guess what Char­lie Crist decided he now believes as of yes­ter­day:

For­mer Florida Gov. Char­lie Crist, who through­out his long polit­i­cal career has been staunchly pro-​gun rights, said Wednes­day that after the Con­necti­cut school slay­ings, he now backs controls

That quite a switch but the expla­na­tion is sim­ple:

Crist recently became a Demo­c­rat and is con­sid­er­ing a chal­lenge to Gov. Rick Scott, who long has favored gun rights. Scott has refused to com­ment on gun mea­sures after the Con­necti­cut shoot­ings, say­ing it is too early to debate.

Javier Man­jar­res is not amused

Is there a phonier polit­i­cal oppor­tunist in the coun­try than Char­lie Crist?

A reminder the NRSC endorsed Char­lie Crist 15 months before the sen­ate pri­mary after which he left the party and even­tu­ally joined the Democ­rats, but until that moment the GOP Estab­lish­ment sure loved Char­lie and that love had more than a polit­i­cal cost:

Dur­ing a sin­gle three-​month span of that year, Repub­li­cans con­tributed $4.3 mil­lion to the doomed cam­paign of Char­lie Crist.

How’s that workin’ out for ya?

and that money was not only lost it terms of what was done, but in terms of what could have been done: Jim­mie Bise:

Divide $500,000 into $4.3 mil­lion. That’s how long I could run a hypo­thet­i­cal con­ser­v­a­tive news site with the money dun­der­headed con­ser­v­a­tives gave Char­lie Crist in just three months.

On the other hand let me remind of a poll that the GOP Estab­lish­ment didn’t have any use for, a fel­low named Rick San­to­rum. I remem­ber (and videoed) him say­ing this in New Hamp­shire:

Amer­ica is a melt­ing pot, not a salad bowl. Amer­ica is a set of val­ues by which we hold together. That’s what holds us together, but there is a dif­fer­ent point of view. Some have sug­gested that no Amer­ica shouldn’t be and is wrong to be, one thing. It needs to be many things. It needs to be what any every­body wants to do. Out of one many. If that’s the case then is any­body sur­prised that we have trou­ble get­ting any­thing done for the one, the coun­try?

Lisa Graas yes­ter­day reminded of these words before the DeMoins Reg­is­ter say­ing this:

But as Rick San­to­rum told the edi­to­r­ial board of the Des Moines Reg­is­ter back dur­ing the pri­mary, most politi­cians think of the issues as “lit­tle silos” and if one of the “silos” is not pop­u­lar, the politi­cian can just kick that silo down and take a new posi­tion. He sees “the big pic­ture” of where our rights come from, and the very lim­ited role of our gov­ern­ment in defend­ing only those rights.

I come back to Santorum’s answer on Gay Mar­riage in Con­cord NH against a Hos­tile Col­lege Crowd, he didn’t duck, he didn’t flip he explained and edu­cated:

The GOP Estab­lish­ment didn’t like Rick San­to­rum, they didn’t like his will­ing­ness to talk on key issues, he didn’t duck, dodge or hide. That scared them. Mitt Rom­ney didn’t scare them or the con­sul­tants they invested in. The GOP estab­lished sure liked Mitt Romney…

.….right up until the day he lost.

Per­haps con­ser­v­a­tives should con­sider a dif­fer­ent set of invest­ments, rather than enrich­ing con­sul­tants by spend­ing on pols who are so change­able we should invest in sell­ing our ideas to the peo­ple they would ben­e­fit:

the only hope to go to the people.

Go to the Lati­nos and Black Amer­i­cans, explain WHY con­ser­v­a­tive eco­nom­ics work for them. Explain why an open bor­der hurts THEM and theirs and explain why the enti­tle­ment soci­ety makes them peons and slaves to the state as sure as if they were in the plan­ta­tions of South Amer­ica or the old South.

Go to women explain WHY not only con­ser­v­a­tive eco­nom­ics works for them but WHY con­ser­vatism in social issues ben­e­fits them, their chil­dren and themselves.

Let Amer­i­cans know that WHY a strong Amer­ica makes them safer than a weak one, make the case and do it every sin­gle day.

That is a bet­ter invest­ment than any dol­lar to any superpac

This is what new media does, as Stacy McCain put it

For the $4 mil­lion that the per­matanned RINO Char­lie Crist col­lected dur­ing that sin­gle three-​month span of 2009, you could fund eight spiffy lit­tle New Media oper­a­tions for a year (or four such oper­a­tions for two years). And FEC con­tri­bu­tion lim­its do not apply to peo­ple mak­ing “invest­ments” in news oper­a­tions, so that the rich Repub­li­cans would not be restricted in their gen­eros­ity toward New Media, as they are toward polit­i­cal candidates.

Why is a Media Mat­ters & Think Progress or even a Brett Kim­ber­lin funded? How does the left man­age to push this agenda from the web to the MSM and why do they suc­ceed? because as Stacy McCain put it

Soros has fig­ured this out. Rich Repub­li­cans have not.

Guys it’s time to fig­ure it out.




Update: NRSC not NRCC corrected

Hey Guess what Charlie Crist decided he now believes as of yesterday:

Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who throughout his long political career has been staunchly pro-gun rights, said Wednesday that after the Connecticut school slayings, he now backs controls

That quite a switch but the explanation is simple:

Crist recently became a Democrat and is considering a challenge to Gov. Rick Scott, who long has favored gun rights. Scott has refused to comment on gun measures after the Connecticut shootings, saying it is too early to debate.

Javier Manjarres is not amused

Is there a phonier political opportunist in the country than Charlie Crist?

A reminder the NRSC endorsed Charlie Crist 15 months before the senate primary after which he left the party and eventually joined the Democrats, but until that moment the GOP Establishment sure loved Charlie and that love had more than a political cost:

During a single three-month span of that year, Republicans contributed $4.3 million to the doomed campaign of Charlie Crist.

How’s that workin’ out for ya?

and that money was not only lost it terms of what was done, but in terms of what could have been done: Jimmie Bise:

Divide $500,000 into $4.3 million. That’s how long I could run a hypothetical conservative news site with the money dunderheaded conservatives gave Charlie Crist in just three months.

On the other hand let me remind of a poll that the GOP Establishment didn’t have any use for, a fellow named Rick Santorum. I remember (and videoed) him saying this in New Hampshire:

America is a melting pot, not a salad bowl. America is a set of values by which we hold together. That’s what holds us together, but there is a different point of view. Some have suggested that no America shouldn’t be and is wrong to be, one thing. It needs to be many things. It needs to be what any everybody wants to do. Out of one many. If that’s the case then is anybody surprised that we have trouble getting anything done for the one, the country?

Lisa Graas yesterday reminded of these words before the DeMoins Register saying this:

But as Rick Santorum told the editorial board of the Des Moines Register back during the primary, most politicians think of the issues as “little silos” and if one of the “silos” is not popular, the politician can just kick that silo down and take a new position. He sees “the big picture” of where our rights come from, and the very limited role of our government in defending only those rights.

I come back to Santorum’s answer on Gay Marriage in Concord NH against a Hostile College Crowd, he didn’t duck, he didn’t flip he explained and educated:

The GOP Establishment didn’t like Rick Santorum, they didn’t like his willingness to talk on key issues, he didn’t duck, dodge or hide. That scared them. Mitt Romney didn’t scare them or the consultants they invested in. The GOP established sure liked Mitt Romney…

…..right up until the day he lost.

Perhaps conservatives should consider a different set of investments, rather than enriching consultants by spending on pols who are so changeable we should invest in selling our ideas to the people they would benefit:

the only hope to go to the people.

Go to the Latinos and Black Americans, explain WHY conservative economics work for them. Explain why an open border hurts THEM and theirs and explain why the entitlement society makes them peons and slaves to the state as sure as if they were in the plantations of South America or the old South.

Go to women explain WHY not only conservative economics works for them but WHY conservatism in social issues benefits them, their children and themselves.

Let Americans know that WHY a strong America makes them safer than a weak one, make the case and do it every single day.

That is a better investment than any dollar to any superpac

This is what new media does, as Stacy McCain put it

For the $4 million that the permatanned RINO Charlie Crist collected during that single three-month span of 2009, you could fund eight spiffy little New Media operations for a year (or four such operations for two years). And FEC contribution limits do not apply to people making “investments” in news operations, so that the rich Republicans would not be restricted in their generosity toward New Media, as they are toward political candidates.

Why is a Media Matters & Think Progress or even a Brett Kimberlin funded? How does the left manage to push this agenda from the web to the MSM and why do they succeed? because as Stacy McCain put it

Soros has figured this out. Rich Republicans have not.

Guys it’s time to figure it out.
