Schmidt and the GOP Just Don't Get It

McCain’s closest advisor in his presidential campaign was a man by the name of Steve Schmidt. Schmidt spoke before the Log Cabin Republicans , a group of homosexual men and women who claim to stand for Conservative values…but that’s another post.

Schmidt criticized the GOP for using the Bible as a “rationale for gay marriage opposition”. He is urging the Republican party to shift even further to the left by supporting civil unions and gay marriage.

Here are several things from the article that didn’t make sense:

Schmidt predicted gay marriage will create a bigger and bigger divide between the GOP and the electorate in the years ahead. He said that as young voters age, they may adopt conservative views on the economy and national security -- but they will not abandon liberal, social beliefs.

I believe Republicans should re-examine the extent that we are being defined by positions on issues that I don't believe are among our core values," he said,”

They may not be your core values Schmidt. But they are the core values of those voters who have most loyally supported the Republican Party. It is because the GOP is abandoning these core values that it is losing its base support. It’s one of the reasons the GOP lost the Presidential election.

The rapid growth of the Hispanic-American population for instance could soon cost Republicans the entire southwest if we don't recover our previous share of the vote," he said.”

The rapid growth is the result of lax border protection and the refusal of the government to crack down on illegals. You should be urging enforcement of our immigration laws and doing something to STOP the rapid growth of illegals in this country.

Take a look at the tea parties, Schmidt. I guarantee you most of these people were either Republican or Independent. And they are sick and tired of the Republican party giving them the cold shoulder.

If we wanted to support abortion, homosexual marriage and illegal immigration, we would have voted for Obama.

You just don’t get it. Neither, obviously, do most of the chief pundits within your dying party.

If you don’t want to lose your voter base, you need to quit listening to the opposition and go back toward the right economically and socially.

Otherwise, why not just step across the aisle right now and stay there.

Bravo, Ms. Green, so very well-said. No wonder McCain lost the election. And, it may be for the best, for the Republican Party, or what is left of it, that he did lose. But we as social & fiscal conservatives (in that order) must get the party back to its genuine roots as you well-stated, or it will continue to rot. May the Lord bless you, Ms. Green.

David, I actually came very close to not voting at all in the Presidential election as a matter of protest against the GOP. But then Obama scared me into voting...and my fears are being realized.

Well, Ms. Green, I must say I am glad you voted, but I am nearly certain that many went throgh with your first inclination for that very reason, & I must admit, it is understandable. As always, may the Lord bless you.

Ms. Green

I too came very close to not voting for a president. In fact I had already decided that I would not vote until he picked Palin for his running mate.

Schmidt, McCain and the pundits are interested in saving a party, in a dying nation. Conservatives are interested in saving the nation. Until they look beyond their party, they will be unable to see anything except their petty little political domains.

The only good thing about McCain loosing this election was that McCain lost this election
