OK. I enjoyed the Glenn Beck speech at CPAC as much as any I've listened to in a long time - maybe since Rush Limbaugh's speech there last year. But that's the problem. I'm waiting for a real leader to emerge who push these ideas forward. Someone who understands that the political establishment is ripping us off for their own gain. But the only leaders stepping up are radio and TV personalities.
I get it when the Tea Party folks say they are not about personalities and that a single leader will not emerge from that. The problem is that someone will step in and fill the leadership void created by their movement.
Do we want to see another John McCain as the lesser of two evils option for President of the United States? The array of candidates that seems to be lining up is the same group we picked from last time. Each has enough warts on key issues like immigration, health care, spending, life, or national security to be disqualified from consideration.
I mean, seriously has anyone actually looked at Mitt Romney's record as governor of Massachusetts? On social issues he's to the left of most Democrats.
Beck is right. The Republicans blew it and do not deserve another shot at leading. Not until the big spenders and phonies that destroyed our economy last time are all gone. Otherwise, you're just voting for a wolf in sheep's clothing instead of a wolf.
