In the End, Facts Won’t Matter

Facts Won’t Matter

In the end, the facts won’t matter. The discussion of who is more vulnerable, who has the most or least baggage in the general election, whose history will hurt him more or less, whether Bain or the Fannie Mae situation will provide more fodder to the Democrats’ political machine won’t matter, even though we like to pretend they will.

The Democrats are already engaged in a scorched-earth slaughter-fest, and the media acts as their advocate and champion; nuances of this or that that we Republicans spend time debating will have no place in the lead-up to the November election. In fact, it’s rather charming to imagine that anyone will care about blind trusts or the differences between consulting and lobbying and who paid what in capital gains taxes and who cheated on his wife.

The media and the Democrats, if you’ll pardon the redundancy, will be creating their own versions of reality, their own sets of “facts” that will have no connection to the truth, and the fraud and slander will be rampant, and loud, and pervasive. Look, if facts mattered, would Obama have won the nomination in 2008, much less the election? With a resume of inconceivable brevity, his only record in the Senate as being the most progressive member, his only real accomplishment in the Illinois Senate being the vetoing of a provision to provide medical care for babies whose attempted abortions failed, his connections with Reverend Wright and the terrorist Bill Ayers and Saul Alinsky.

Barack Obama is a man whose only claim to fame was having “written” two memoirs before the age of 40. Facts played no role at all. Not to Democrat voters when they picked him over the actually qualified Hillary, and not when the nation’s voters elected him over the actually qualified John McCain. So facts don’t matter. Not in the public’s mind, and not when the media is a propaganda arm of the Democratic Party.

So all this chatter about Newt and Mitt and who is vulnerable and so on -a waste of time, a waste of breath, a waste of keystrokes. Because the Democrats will make up whatever they want, and will lie and distort and do the usual full control of the discourse so that there is not a person alive whose actual record, history, life overall can withstand the smarm from the Left.

What will make a difference? Seizing the discourse back. And this can be done two ways, and only the candidate who excels at these will kick this guy out of our White House. First, the Republican nominee must never kowtow to the slings and arrows of the Democrats, and must instead turn the tables at every opportunity.

Only the candidate who speaks the truth fearlessly and clearly about the current President and the damage he has done will be able to beat him. The lies coming out of the Press Machine are stunning in their falsity: only the nominee who relentlessly and with simplicity and passion reminds the America people of the actual damage that Barack Obama has done to each of us and the nation generally will spur the people to vote to get rid of him on November 6. The nominee must also eloquently and passionately remind us of the greatness of this nation, and revive in us the wellspring of inspiration and excitement that had always been a part of the United States since its founding, and even before.

The candidate who can make us believe in ourselves again, who can incite our imaginations and our feeling that yes, there CAN be a New Morning in America, will win the general election in November. Only the person who enables us to envision ourselves the way we want to be will unseat the whiny and destructive child acting as our President. The real question isn’t whose actual background can withstand competition with a Democrat, but who can actually stand up and seize the discourse and unite American to get us back on the track that we need to be on.

Only a candidate who can clearly articulate our concerns and our hopes and dreams and visions can beat this Liar-in Chief, and ONLY a candidate who will eloquently take on the disastrous actions and policies of this POTUS will be able to beat him. The facts won’t matter. The passion for America will.

    Facts matter. Otherwise Gingrich, Perry, or Cain would still be ahead.

    Jim Hoft: So TRUE!

    You have “Republicans” who will vote for the guy whose healthcare and MANDATE plan was the blueprint for Obamacare. But they are okay with that because he is the liberal “Republican” like John McShame was.

    As long as it isn’t Gingrich because Romneycare is supposedly pure.

    I will stand on principal and cast my vote for the person who DID NOT SIGN THE ROMNEYCARE BILL!

    The Establishment Republicans are not fighting the real enemy in this country – Barack Hussein Obama – because he is black and are letting him get away with murder, theft, destruction of America, and what honor the Founders left us.

    They can all go to hell! I’ve had it with the GOP because they are the real problem.

    In the end, we will all be dead. That fact does not release us from our responsibility to ourselves and our families, right now.

    God gave us this beautiful Earth, and these marvelous bodies, and he delegated both to us during our lives. He also gave us a lot of instructions and made us a lot of promises about the wonderful results we could achieve, if we live according to His laws, and treat one another right.

    Our ancestors thought it over, and based on those teachings and human experience and their own reasoning, gave us a mechanism for organizing ourselves and regulating our relationships amongst ourselves.

    We have had such sensational results that we think of our country and our people as “blessed.”

    And yet, all along the way, there have been nights when people went to bed wondering if they would have a country the next morning. Our national anthem recounts one such episode. We know what we have is precious, we worry about losing it, and our patriotic songs are filled with prayers for wisdom, self control, and guidance.

    This is my watch. I’ll do my bit as best I can.

    Facts always matter. The problem is the number of fools who ignore the facts to support their ideology. Doesn’t mean the facts aren’t important.

    Jim, did they give you general anesthesia for your knee surgery? Didn’t they tell you shouldn’t drive or blog after surgery?

    Facts always matter and one of the facts is that money generally dominates. This means that our weakest candidate, Romney, will win enough primaries to get the nomination. Unfortunately, he can’t outspend Obama or hold the base.

    How Orwellian.
