The Palin supporters are to blame for this mess?
There seems to be a theme going around that before Palin declared she wasn't running, her supporters "drove away" the good conservative candidates. And if Palin had announced sooner, or if her supporters were more open-minded then we would have much better candidates now. Riiiight. Those people really don't know the first thing about the conservative movement do they? Palin supporters never looked to her as the One. True. Leader. We all, Palin included, want to get the country back on track. We want a conservative who will have the guts to undo Obama's failures, someone who will honor the constitution, reduce debt, increase freedom, shrink the size of government, etc. Palin could do that, so could any number of people. Palin could only be president for four or eight years, and that's only one office. We need a long term solution. It was always about conservatism from the ground up. Sure, our first choice was Palin, but we all have second and third choices, too. We would love a Rubio, or West, or Thompson, or anyone with conservative bonafides. But the pundits won again and only elite establishment candidates are left. It's not our fault. It's THEIR fault.
