Phyllis Schlafly, like His Imperial Highness, is massively unimpressed with the Choice of Three RINOs™ that we seem to have to pick from in ‘08.

“Seem to”, because those are the only ones that the MSM want to talk about, which should tell you all you need to know about how “conservative” (don’t make us laugh) they really are.

“We’re told by the media that we have a choice of one of three, (Sen. John) McCain or (former New York mayor Rudy) Giuliani or (former Massachusetts governor Mitt) Romney. Each one of them is capable of raising $100 million. I’m not happy of being told that at all. I don’t think that any of the three are acceptable.”

Preach it, sister!

She disagreed with McCain’s choice to co-sponsor legislation with Sen. Ted Kennedy that would give illegal immigrants a path to citizenship.

As do a majority of Americans, but you won’t find the MSM touting THOSE polls. And let’s not even get started on his act of high treason with McCain/Feingold.

“Mitt Romney’s very handsome, very attractive, a wonderful speaker with a wonderful resume,” but he didn’t focus on conservative issues, she said.

Most likely because he didn’t acknowledge their existence until he started mulling a Presidential bid.

As for Giuliani, Schlafly said his standing at the top of polls won’t last. “The polls also say that people don’t know that he’s pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage and anti-gun,” she said. “I think those polls will change when people find out.”

Pro-abortion: Nails the coveted conservative Planned Parenthood demographic.

Pro-gay marriage: That corners the conservative Andrew Sullivan demographic.

Anti-gun: And that takes care of the enormous conservative Brady Campaign demographic.

How Phyllis can even suggest that he might not be all that conservative is beyond us.

So we’re done for, aren’t we?

Well, not quite.

Not at all, actually.

Of course, neither one of their candidacies are ever spoken of in the famously fair and unbiased MSM.

Which is one of the best arguments in their favor, if you ask us.

    My Dear emperor,

    although I share your lack of 100% enthuiasm for Romney or Guiliani, IMHO either of them is better than Hillary or Obama, and like it or not, thats the choice that were most likely to get. A Demo, a Rino, or nothing.

    Hunter might make a decent VP pick, but he CANT WIN PREZ.nomination. Neither can Tancredo. Its simply the facts. And neither Tom nor Duncan could beat Hillary/obama.

    So its vote like the Immortal Reagan once said, for the one “that gives me most, but not all of what I want”

    I know what you’re saying, my friend, and I held my nose last year with that in mind. I might even hold my nose in ‘08 again.

    But we both know how little that “holding your nose” helped last year, don’t we?

    Fact of the matter is that, regardless of what you and I choose to do in ‘08, if the Republicans don’t come up with a candidate that is at the very least acceptable to the base (the ones most likely to actually go out and vote, as opposed to the feted “moderates” that are more likely to stay at home watching “Oprah” instead), no amount of holding our noses is going to make a good gottdamm of difference.

    Forget about convincing me of the horrors of a Hildebeest Presidency, I already agree with you. That’s not the problem.

    The problem is that if the three current main contenders are the best we can do for ‘08, then the same thing that happened in ‘06 is going to happen again. A LOT of Republicans are going to stay at home.

    Pandering to the left isn’t going to help them either, because those voters are going to vote Hildebeest no matter how much GuiliCainRomneyani sucks their dicks.

    Trust me. The GOP will have to come up with a candidate capable of energizing the mainstream Republican voter or we’re going to be very, very sorry in ‘08.

    Hoghead:

    You are correct, Guliani or Romney would both be better than OsamaObama or the shrill one. Arguably, McLame would be, as well.

    BUT: It’s Primary season. General Elections are one thing, but NOW is the time to start putting forward OUR candidate. Who votes in Primaries? Nutjobs like me. I want to nominate someone who is a real Conservative. Fuck electable - that really helped te Donks in ‘04, didn’t it? Why should we try to emulate their “successes”?

    ==========================

    Majesty, while I really like Tom, and Duncan would be a good choice, how about a “Draft Cheney” movement? Either one of them, I’m not picky.

    Hell, the daughter that Lurch and Company attempted to use against him would be a better choice than anything on the Doink side.

    ==========================

    Another little, wee, tiny thing to think about as you consider the upcoming election:

    Historically, when Republicans run as unabashed, unashamed, Give ‘em Hell Conservatives, they win. Running as a squishy (which our three “frontrunners” would have to improve to become) generally gets your ass habded to you. Doesn’t always work, but definitely the way to bet the River Card.

    See “Ronald Wilson Reagan, the Successful Election Strategies of” for a prime example.

    MY liege, although I agree with you in concept, we confirmed CONSERVATIVES are 25-33% of the voting populace, AT BEST. In order to prevail, we NEED moderates support. Hunter/Tancredo/paul et al wont do it. Hold your nose or say hello to Hillary !!! In 2000 and 2004 the best alternative was BUSH, yet hes hardly governed as a CONSERVATIVE.

    You heard it here first. Newt in ‘08.

    I have never volunteered to work for a candidate. Ever. That being said, when Newt announces he’s in this September, I’m there. Not only is he a true conservative, but he has the balls to tell people what they don’t want to hear. And, unlike our current President, he won’t run for office to “get along” or “bring a new tone.”

    Finally, Time magazine and the rest of the MSM can and will do all they can to demonize him with personal attacks (funny how the Clinton’s book deals or Al Gore’s movie money are non-issues, but I digress). The truth is that the new media will get his message out. So, keep the faith my fellow LCs. Newt is going to be President two years from now.

    Hog said:

    We could also say it this way:

    Moderates need OUR support in order to win. The difference is when there is a conservative nominee, both moderates and and conservatives benefit because the conservative wins. When we have a moderate nominee the only beneficiaries are liberals because the moderate always loses (as I highlighted in the post above).

    I’ll echo the same thoughts here. This primary season. Vote for a conservative. Conservatives WIN when they run as CONSERVATIVES. Period.

    Hunter, Tancredo, or Huckabee. And don’t worry about the Shrildebeast, I don’t think she can win. She’s to easy to hate and I don’t think her handlers will be able to control her. She has a phenomenal temper and can see her having a full fledged meltdown on the trail, maybe even in a debate. Obama I don’t think is a threat either. He’s unabashedly liberal and despite what the MSM pours down our throats, most Americans are NOT leftists. “Moderates” will vote for a conservative before they will vote for a lib.

    Hunter might make a decent VP pick, but he CANT WIN PREZ.nomination. Neither can Tancredo. Its simply the facts. And neither Tom nor Duncan could beat Hillary/obama.

    I completely disagree with your view here, Hog. That’s the kind of thing you say when the lines are drawn, after the primaries. The battles of the coming year are not the time to concede anything. This is where the future is decided, in the primaries.

    Remember Howard Dean. The Frontrunner. The Hard-Charging Kid, who came from under the shadow of Kerry and Gephardt and Edwards to become the presumptive nominee and favorite to beat George W. Bush.

    Except it didn’t happen. Dean-O went from Zero to Hero to Nero. Where you want to plug in Hunter and Tancredo and Guiliani and The Boy of Destiny John Quisling McCain is up to you, but the point is the future rarely plays out how it’s supposed to in politics. So this year, until Thanksgiving, at least, is the time to support the nominee closest to your heart.

    For me, it’s Duncan Hunter. I’d be happy with Tancredo. I could swallow- barely- Giuliani, because we can’t very well indict Democrats for electing traitors if we’re not willing to accept a strong security candidate with few questionable views on the periphery. I would be exteremely displeased with a Romney, and I would flat-out not vote for John McCain.

    I kinda like Tancredo. I have been on the side of a flat-tax or national slaes tax for a long time.

    If you think about it a national sales tax would probably bring in more money than the current system even at 2 or 3 percent. Especially when you consider then even the illegal immigrants and tourists from other countries would actually be contributing to the cause as well.

    Well, the legal immigrants that work here legally would be paying taxes as well. Since they currently DON’T pay taxes at all.

    (Come to think of it, that puppet thing is a good T-shirt idea by itself.)

    Brothers and sisters it is time to look at this election with a sober eye.
    There is not one candidate that I can agree with 100%. (Except Newt, and he’s not running…yet). That said, we have to choose, and saying none of the above is not going promote anything but further socialism. (My apoligies to the Emperor)
    It will be alot better to work within a Rudy/ Mitt/ please not McCain administration, than ANY democrat.
    If the dims control congress and send a bill to a prez Rudy/ Mitt/ please not McCain, they are much more likely to listen to a phone call or e-mail from us than any democrat would.
    And what kind of judges can we expect Hillary or Obama to appoint? Any rino prez would be better.
    But the most important thing to consider is who is going to kill more of our enemies? Again, any of the republicans are far and away better than the dims.
    In the end, it is alot better to have GWB than Gore or Kerry, so it is about a choice and sometime not a very good one, but thats what will happen…same as it ever was….same as it ever was…same as it ever was…

    Beartrapper, while I agree with you for the GENERAL ELECTION, now is not the time to limit ourselves. For the primary, FORCE THE CHOICE AS FAR RIGHT AS WE CAN! Don’t allow a squishy (or the MSM and their friends) to call the shots!

    Hell, I didn’t even agree with Renauldus Magnus all the time. He allowed the Doink congress to roll him entirely too damn often. But, when he really wanted something, he went to the owners (us!) directly, and got most of what he wanted.

    Now is not the time to accept a 51% of what we want candidate. Now is the time to get behind someone who is at least in the high 90’s, and PUSH. HARD!

    Yes, a time may come when we have to accept Mitt Romney (just as an example, not an endorsement). Looking at him, he’s at about 60% (just me talking’), and there is no one running on the Doink side that tops 5%. At that point, I have no problem with taking what I can get, and living to fight again on another day.

    Don’t give up on Newt just yet. I know what he is doing, and I think it will work. Sit back, relax, continue to push AGENDA items, CONSERVATIVE ideas, and let the pubic get tired of the clown show. By September, 75% of the country will be so damn tired of listening to the current crop of asshats, they will be GLAD to have some fresh blood.

    I’m all for Newt. I’d throw the switch (or push that damn beeping electronic button) for him so hard it would break the machine.

    Rudy sounded good at first…but the more I hear him talk, the less confidence I have in him. I mean the only impression of him that most uninformed voters are going on with him was how he reacted to 9/11, which I will admit was amazing and admirable. I have the utmost respect for Rudy in how he pulled New York out of the rubble, but I don’t have confidence in his ability to do the same for the entire country.

    Mitt, is looking more and more like a Pretty Boy Kerry. I am not even taking into consideration his Mormon connections. To me that makes no difference what so ever. The problem comes from his flip flops on gun control and other issues. I also get the impression he is soft on illegals, and to be honest I feel he will be the same way on the Long War.

    As for McCain…..

    Not a chance in hell will I be induced to vote for that piece of shit. I will be at the range on voting day if he’s the nominee.

    G*ddammit, we need a strong conservative for the prime Republican candidate…either Ron Paul, Tom Tancredo, Newt, or Duncan Hunter. Look at ‘06; we need a solid conservative to energize the base; Americans are generally right-leaning. Ron Paul is a strong libertarian, but his belief that there is some conspiracy behind 9/11 and his links with guys like Alex Jones worry me. Newt is a real conservative, but he’s got tons of baggage. Tom Tancredo might not be good President material, but he could make a good veep. Duncan Hunter is my top choice for president so far. When primaries come around, make sure to get out there and vote…
    As for the Donks, I really don’t think the Hildabeast is electable-Obama is way more charismatic.

    Misha, I think it’d be very interesting to know just how we disciples of the Rottweiler Empire feel about the various GOP presidential candidates, including those already declared along with probable future candidates (like Newt). Of course, I say this without any appreciation whatsoever for the complexities involved, but is it possible to put up a Rottie Poll listing the candidates and letting us vote on them? Another possibility would be to subscribe to this ongoing poll over at GOP Bloggers. While our votes will be included among all participating blogs, you can also view The Rottweiler’s results separately.

    John Podhoretz says it better than I:

    But more than any other candidate in the race, Rudy Giuliani is a liberal-slayer. When he rejects liberal orthodoxy, which he does often, he doesn’t just oppose it. He goes to war with it - total, unconditional war.

    He spent his political career chewing up liberal orthodoxy and spitting it out - and I think that somehow, in some way, voters in Oklahoma and Kansas get that about him even without knowing the specifics.

    His success in turning New York around wasn’t merely a matter of changing policies. He had to sustain those policies when they came under deliberate, systematic and unrelenting assault by the city’s liberal elite.

    In case after case, he refused to accept the veto of liberal public opinion. He drove porn shops out of residential neighborhoods, even though his administration had to fight more than 30 lawsuits on the matter. He crusaded against bilingual education, a disastrous policy that had gone unquestioned in this city for decades.

    And most important, he stood up for the police department against any and all attacks - which were incessant and incredibly unjust. The race baiters and their shills at the Not-So-Great Grey Lady talked as though the NYPD was engaging in genocide when the opposite was the case - many thousand of people are alive today who would have died if the NYPD hadn’t taken on its newly aggressive posture under Giuliani.

    Did Giuliani go too far in defending the police against charges that officers were trigger-happy and brutal? Sure he did, and some of his more aggressive efforts in this regard will also become campaign fodder over the course of the next year or more. But his defensiveness was nothing compared to the shameful and shameless effort to delegitimize his crime-fighting approach by slandering the NYPD as a bunch of goons and killers

    He basically took the view that these 38,000 people were an army fighting an enemy, and that they were liberating the people of New York City from a reign of lawlessness.

    And this, more than anything else, ties into the national sentiment about Rudy as the Hero of 9/11. He didn’t just represent New York to the nation and the world. He had, in fact, changed New York in a way that made this city’s response to 9/11 so astounding.

    In September 2001, as his mayoralty was winding down, New York had achieved civic equilibrium. This was a city at peace with itself, no matter what Al Sharpton might have said. The New York of 1991 would not have responded with the calm dignity and sense of common purpose that the New York of 2001 did.

    The New York of 1991 was a city governed by the liberal elite. The New York of 2001 had been changed utterly by an anti-liberal mayor.

    We’re going to hear a lot about how rude, abrasive, arrogant, high-handed, combative, isolated, difficult and aggressive Rudy Giuliani was as mayor. And yet he was the key factor in turning New York into the safe, clean, pleasant, polite, neighborly and genuinely nice place it was when we were attacked on 9/11.

    His record is clear: He fought the left mercilessly, and he not only won politically, he won as far as history’s proper judgment of his tenure in New York.

    Is it any wonder conservative Republicans are so eager to think the very best of him?
