Cornyn is grumbling about divisions. It seems after the Bush Administration governing as Democrat-lite and the treatment of the Tea Party, we all must still unite behind demonstrated betrayal and defeat and help Republicans take back the Senate because Harry Reid! They can’t do anything conservative otherwise, or so the same tired spin goes.
His problem is that we are all very certain of what they will do and it has nothing to do with conservatism. It’s why they aren’t receiving money and support. The lies are the same, along with the very new tactic of trying to browbeat and shame conservatives into submission where trickery will no longer serve, but their actions never change. They will stop nothing and reverse nothing, as they have spent the past four years demonstrating.
But we must not be divided and show unity, except that unity is a funny thing with the Establishment. They will very well undermine conservative candidates in the general election and try to get their status quo incumbents through the primaries even if they are weak, but all stops must be pulled to defeat the Democrats after the primaries are over when theirs are at stake. How dare we conservatives return the favor? It’s like we believe they’re not worth the effort given even their recent history, and we would be right.
They’ve demonstrated who they really are, so one can only assume Cornyn’s remarks were to the casual voter crowd. We’re not all on the same page and we’re not having a family discussion. They want us as vote serfs and care nothing for our point of view. Uniting behind the Establishment would be no more productive to the cause of conservative governance, holding Obama to account, stopping amnesty, or ending Obamacare than uniting behind the Democrats would. When that changes, we can all discuss unity again.
