What Does the GOP Really Want In 2012?

With the field of electable Republican presidents shrinking by the minute and the first primary elections only weeks away, conservatives may be wondering what the Republican Party establishment really wants to accomplish in 2012.

I won’t keep you waiting. The Republican leadership would like nothing better than to have another four years of Dictator BHO.

Of course, they will never admit it. And I don’t doubt that they’d like as many party loyals elected to 2012 state and federal offices, good suits who will do Boehner’s bidding, and stay bought. It’s just that, well, there’s nothing like the Obaminator to rally the party troopers and inspire order.

The Tea Parties have greatly annoyed the Republican establishment with their small government advocacy, their insistence on bringing up the Constitution at inconvenient times, and their pervasive lack of faith in federal solutions, federal justice and federal monetary policy. They are, at the heart of it, just not good Republicans. What’s worse, they revel in their independence.

Republicans know that in this GLOBAL economic slump, there is very little a president can do to turn things around in the short term. They know their clueless "cut taxes" narrative doesn't hold up to the facts. So why not stand outside screaming nonsense instead of actually trying to step up to the plate with serious ideas?

We are in the process of watching Obama march to victory in Nov. 2012. The Republicans are all so busy tearing into one another, and all Obama has to do is do nothing. The GOP is doing it all to themselves. The only electable one in the bunch is Mitt Romney, it would appear. The rest have too much baggage.

there is no more traditional GOP they sold out to least common denominator to get Bush elected and are stuck with that now
Newt may have a chance but he's too smart to appeal to the new working class Nascar Wal-Mart Republicans that vote that way thinking they are not poor or low class

Yes, Gingrich is smart, but his marital problems would be a distraction and do him in.
