I’ll be the very first person to admit that if you want to be a bigot you have every right in the world to be a bigot. Unlike many of the Conservatives that comment at B4V I understand that being a bigot carries certain consequences in the meat world. While I’m sure there are some American companies that will tolerate a bigot in their workforce, the vast majority, out of concern for profit and reputation in that order, will not. See Paula Deen’s meteoric descent into obscurity at the very hint of racial bigotry and you get where I’m coming from.

DB, I’ll excuse you putting words in my mouth but I neither support Oprah Winfrey’s words nor do I feel any need to defend him. Are there Conservative individual citizens of the United States of America who dislike President Obama simply because he is half black? Of course there are. Are there Liberals who dislike black people? Of course there are. My point is that all of black culture isn’t bad anymore than all of Muslim or Jewish or Catholic culture is bad. Sure I’ve made some hay and more than a few shekels pointing out the flaws and foibles of the modern Catholic Church but I am both honest enough and intelligent enough to realize that all Catholics are not evil because of the actions of a few.

Another thing Mr. Schmidt is I understand the reason for your frustration that is moving toward anger. Two things you mustn’t ever discuss in the comments here in the full sunlight of Reason are religion and what an aging American population is doing to the country politically. This is where I see Conservatives burying their heads in the sand. Sure there are millions and I do not exaggerate that number at all, of young 15 to 25 year old future and present voters for Conservative values that will likely never vote for a Liberal candidate if you, pardon the pun, put a gun to their head. Unfortunately for their Conservative parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles who outnumber them 15 to 1 these true in the spirit Christian Conservative kids and young adults don’t live in states where their votes really carry the power they should in the numbers that are needed. Schmidt you are going to be swamped by a Latino, black and young white Liberal adult tsunami in the next two decades and there is very little that can be done about it.

Voter ID? Fine we can do that. Immigration reform? That will tip the playing field my way if the GOP in Congress blocks it or if by some miracle it gets passed. Gay marriage? Done deal. You’ve lost this battle by being untrue to your libertarian ideals and still living in the 19th Century world of being ashamed to recognize the rights inherent to all people. Straight Christian people own the word marriage? You have got to be kidding me. And this is how more often than not Conservatives expose themselves as being less than intelligent on issues that are important to moderates and independents. Nobody cared about Sandra Fluke until Limbaugh called her a name. Nobody thought Todd Akin was going to lose to Senator Claire McCaskill until he uttered the phrase “legitimate rape.” And sure VP Biden is a master gaffer but his gaffes don’t do half as much harm to the Democrats especially now because he doesn’t have to run for another office ever again unless he chooses to take on Hillary in 2015.

In Hindsight
How are you going to hold the House in 2016? MarkNoonan, who knows better than to predict a presidential election ever again after being suckered by Romney’s internal polls which even the pollsters knew were fabricated to keep the party from panicking, right now as I am writing this does not have a potential candidate that supports his values, ideology or political-social beliefs. And here’s a news flash: there isn’t one on the horizon. At best Conservatives will have to throw in for Jeb Bush if he’s willing to run. Rand Paul? Ted Cruz? Really? I say again really? The only hope for the GOP is to beg John Huntsman to come back and run or Mike Pence or even Kelly Ayotte. Anyone more to the right than these people will trigger another feeding frenzy election that ends up in a Chicago 1968 convention battle between the Establishment and the TEA Party. I can only hope that after 2014’s maintaining of the status quo in the House and Senate the TEA Party will feel buoyed enough to scramble out on its own and run Sarah Palin for President in 2016 against Hillary and Christie. Now that would be a race I’d love to cover.
