GOP Primary Turnout Best Since 1926 . . . as America Moves to the Right

Conservatives head to the polls in droves... 
and 'Cuda puts on a dazzling display of raw political might

Asked about whether the GOP should move towards
centrist-RINO candidates and positions following the Democrats' substantial 2008 election gains, Governor Bobby Jindal spelled-it-out in an interview with Rush Limbaugh:

People need to look at the history of Ronald Reagan when he lost his first attempt at the Presidency (in 1976). He didn’t go back and say, "Let’s water down the conservatism. Let’s dilute what we’re saying." He made it even stronger. He made it even sharper. There’s a lesson there for potential candidates

We need to be principled in our conservatism. We need to be unabashed, unafraid. We won’t always be popular with editorial writers and a lot of the members of the national media, and that’s okay. At the end of the day, it’s more important that we stick to our principles.
Regardless of what inside-the-Beltway triangulators might try to tell you, Americans respect a principled conservative more than they do some squirelly chameleon... whether they agree with their views 100% or not. This was on display in Tuesday's primaries, where Palin's true-conservative allies continued to hand RINO opponents their hats... and coupled to the fact that  Republican enthusiasm outstripped Democrats' in a way that hasn't been seen in 84 years.

As Obammunist apple-polishers in the MSM frantically spin the GOP as being in a state of "civil war" between RINOs, TEA Partiers, and Libertarians... Carl Rove sees it quite differently: rather than destructive disarray, what we are experiencing in America today is a very positive churning of a newly-energized American Right as we assemble a winning team heading into November. 

Careers will be both made and terminated... but the resurgence of the TEA/Palin/Reaganite wing is all but undeniable now... and Sarah Palin's surely got the touch:

Reagan conservatism is on the rise. We are fighting fire with fire, letting these Commies know, that we aren't taking any of their crap anymore. We aren't taking any of their destructive policies anymore. We are determined to stop Obama from "tranforming" America.

Teresa, there are ZERO degrees of separation between us on that... RIGHT-on!!!

They awoke a sleeping giant, now it's going to eat them alive

Excellent post, RR. This great news sure made my day!

This certainly is "recovery summer", but not in the way the lying, libturd dims have been trying to spin it!
Love the video's and 'toon too!

The times, they are a-changin'---

Conservative Pup said...

Great post, James! So optimistic, and all true! I love it, and have you linked.

They have indeed awakened a sleeping giant, or 'grizzly', if you will. There are grizzlies in this country, whom you don't mess with, and that's us. Then there are the sheep, who just mill around clueless, and that's those people we all know in our everyday lives that we would like to take and just shake some sense into them. Then there are the serpents, who can seem fierce, but slither away when confronted. We know who they are.

Reaganite Republican said...

Ha, ha, right on

And some of those sheep gonna get sheared now

Adrienne said...

RR - Recent happenings keep the hope alive. That would be "real" hope, not that crappola O-what's-his-name peddles.

Thanks for the link. You are, no doubt - the nicest guy in the blogosphere!

P.S. I don't think it's wacky-tabacky, either. MO has a serious drinking problem and BO's doctor is filling him full of uppers.

Reaganite Republican said...

Whoah- that makes sense, he does look tweaked, lol

Good Ole Boy said...

Don't get two jubilant Kirk and McCain are still in the race for Senate seats and in the case of Kirk he might jump to the Democrats once elected, he is more liberal than some of them.

Matt said...

The more of this I see, the more I can hear that death rattle that you've been talking about. This is starting to look like destiny.

LD Jackson said...

I sure hope you are right. If you are and the GOP can gain control of enough seats in Congress to at least slow down the liberals and their spending frenzy, they must remember they will be held accountable. What they campaigned on, that they must do. If they do not, they can not pass Go and they must be sent packing. Anything less and we will surely be in trouble.

John Carey said...

I think the Dems are going to get "hammered and sickled" this November and I love it. Great post RR!

Reaganite Republican said...

Well, things can change quick in politics, and yeah Good Ole... we are stuck with a couple RINOs still -esp. you in Illinois, unfortunately.

But in the clip above, "The Architect" seems to think it's too one-way, large, and growing to go back Obama's way by November... it's just ten weeks now. And it's ALL going our way... more so by the day, look at Meg Whitman pulling away from Gov Moonbat and Carly tied with Boxer now.... even out there, yep.

And Good Ole... as for the McCains of the world, note how far he's been pulled to the right by Hayworth... Sarah on TV said this week McCain "saw the light" on immigration- IMO she's right, a lot of these RINOs are going to change their tune to survive... it's up to us to hold them to their new promises.

Reaganite Republican said...

Thanks Matt and John, almost every poll shifting our way, Rubio up 10 POINTS on Orange Charlie now... I feel it!

And LDJ, you got it right there... we do need this one, and bad- but I will add that the country might find an even constructive path with the GOP fully in charge of both houses.

But if we DON'T gain control, I think the Dems won't have the votes for more havoc, and the GOP will just stop them procudurally, etc. So IMO the worst is over no matter what, but a big GOP win could get us de-funding of ObamaCare, investigations of the WH... that's what I'm talkin' about!

Shazam!

Reaganite Republican said...

That's what I say, brother- this is getting fun again, ain't it

Steve Dennis said...

One of the reasons Republicans lost in 2008 was because they ran a centrist RINO as their candidate, to stay on that path would have been foolish and I think we are seeing that the party has realized this. It is time to move back towards the right where the party should have been all along.
It's great to know that so many Republicans showed up at the polls, they seem energized and ready to go!

Lee Thomas said...

There is nothing wrong with the Conservative message.

The problem is we hold ourselves to higher standards then do the POlitically correct Democrats who scream insane blather when they hear a conservative say this.

The left wants to wallow in the cesspool with nanny pelosi in gay rights, abortion, anti-war, anti-business, anti-america, anti-

Well you get my point. They are FOR destroying religion, Destroying family values. Destroying work ethic and they are against everything else.

They trot out racism at every turn and try to paint the right as racists when their own closets are bursting at the seems with racism.

And we as conservatives want to water down our message and concede the Democrats are right...???

I don't FF'ing think so!!!

Reaganite Republican said...

Yep Lee, different ballgame now...

The embodiment of this can be seen in Palin's running circles around the RNC's boy Mitt... he seems non existent while she fights off the MSM, Left, and Obama single-handedly and helps real conservatives get elected.

I think her book outsold his like 50-1 too, lol
