Okay Justin, as Managing Director, even though you gave me that designation, I am making the executive decision that the website will absolutely continue. We are just getting started.

Now that the McCain speech is done, I have to say there are two realities that we quickly need to grapple with. First, we are in the wilderness folks. Conservatives have been routed. Elections have consequences and a flood of liberal leglistlation is going to quickly deluge upon us. We need to organize quickly to fight off the attempts to nationalize our health care system and raise taxes. We need to rally against the attempts to eliminate the right to vote about whether to unionize. We need to rise up to prevent the Defense of Marriage Act from being repealed. We need to fight to prevent the Freedom of Choice Act from being passed. We need to work to prevent an immigration plan that will reward law breakers and punish the law abiding. We need to make sure the strength of our military is not undercut by the Democrats. There is so much to fight against. But we also need to generate ideas and create a strong theme from which to forge forward with for the future. We need a leader to help us with this fight.

Second, we need to realize that Sarah Palin is not the person to lead this fight right now. She may be in the future. I was an early advocate for her but she is seriously damaged political goods right now. That is the downside to running and losing as VP. Second, it is likely that it will not be possible to reintroduce her to the public within the next year or two. Unfortunately, she is seen negatively by too many right now. I am probably going to get bashed on for saying this, but the quicker we realize it, the better.

The good news is for conservatives that the party does not move to the left. The moderate candidate lost and lost big. That isn't the blueprint for victory.

Obama won by running on tax cuts and going after terrorists, conservative ideas. When he fails to live up to his promises, the window opens for a conservative. I don't know if that conservative is going to be Mitt Romney or Bobby Jindal, but it is going to be one of the them or both together.



Timotheus-

I must disagree with both of your assumptions. Yes, Barack Obama is a far left liberal, but he did not win the Presidential Election by running like one. He won because the last month of the election he ran as someone who said that he wanted to lower taxes for most people. Conservates were not routed yesterday and neither was conservatism.

Obama won by running a general election campaign where he tried to act like he was a conserative. You can add this to dissatisfaction from both conservates & liberals to Bush's liberal big government agenda & spending plus those who were still upset about the war in Iraq.

Obama DID NOT run a General Election campaign as a liberal. He hid from his liberal philosophy. He tried to pretend like he really didn't want to "spread the wealth" whenever he was "on script."

Second, point, I disagree with your assessment of Governor Palin. She did not make any major mistakes - unlike Joe Biden's (yes he will now be VP ugggh) several ghaffes.

Palin got thrust into the campaign & may have been misused by the campaign. But she is a scrapper & a fighter.

I am not as depressed as you when it comes to our prospects. The Democrats did not get a fillibuster-proof Senate & we have a very talented & competent bench of top prospects for 2012 with Mitt Romney, Bobby Jindal & Sarah Palin all at the top of the list.
