GOP Needs To Unify
April 8, 2010
People have asked me, since as long as I have been on the radio, “Bob, what is it like to have all those people calling you and asking you your opinion on who to vote for and what to do about virtually everything under the sun?”
I tell them the truth, which is simply this. It is an awesome responsibility if I take myself so seriously that I really think I am all that important. All I can do is try to be as informed as I can be so that whatever opinion I give is not just how I feel emotionally about anything, but how I think that person would handle whatever advice I might give him or her.
My point is that most people are so in awe of somebody because he or she in on the radio or television that they assume, therefore, he or she must know something far more than the caller knows.
The truth is, your opinion, no matter who you are, is as valid as mine. Do I get impatient with certain callers? You bet I do! And if you have listened to even a very few Bob Grant Shows, you very well know that I don’t suffer through listening to fools gladly.
We have one of the most important elections in American history coming up in November. It may very well be our last chance to undo the socialist garrote Barack Obama has put around our neck. There are some anti-socialists (anybody who is against Obama) who are absolutely giddy over the prospects of the Republicans taking back the House of Representatives and even the United States Senate.
I would like to be able to say “straight ahead!” But I can see the seeds of disunity and internecine warfare amongst the GOP. Already there is a threat on the part of Charlie Crist, governor of Florida, to run as an independent if he is defeated by Marco Rubio in the Republican primary.
That is heavy handed blackmail. What Charlie is saying is, “If you deprive me of the Republican nomination, I will scuttle your chances by splitting the vote. So what if that gives the victory to the Democrats!̶l;
In another words, party unity at general election time doesn’t mean a thing. If their actions split the vote and elect the jackass, then so be it. Politics is dirty and that is what made Ronald Reagan so special. He was clean and he invoked the Eleventh Commandment: “Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.”
I am afraid those of you who are anticipating a Republican takeover of Congress come November are going to be disappointed — all because too many Republicans put their own selfish interests ahead of the nation’s.
If you Republicans don’t unify to defeat Barack Obama and his Democrat socialist stooges, you will have only yourselves to blame!
