You Fight the Battle You’re In, Not the Battle You WISH You Were In.

Just a short comment on LC Jackboot’s excellent post about the upcoming battle and, among other things, Sarah Palin.

This isn’t about our “preferred” or “ideal” candidate, we haven’t picked on yet, it’s just a short observation on battlefield reality.

One of the issues that come up time and again among good conservatives is that we must avoid fielding a candidate who is “too divisive” as such a candidate will be savaged by the Obamedia, thus putting us at a disadvantage.

We understand the fear, but the argument doesn’t make any sense, particularly not now that the Obamedia have fully and openly, without even the slightest attempt at pretense, vested themselves in the re-election of their Jugeared Messiah.

It doesn’t matter who we field, he or she will be subjected to a massive pile-on by OPFOR. We should all have learned that from ’08, when we fielded the most milque-toast, nadless, indecisive, “loved by the media” candidate of the primaries.

If finding a candidate who will not be viciously and endlessly smeared, slandered, libeled and savaged by the Obamedia in ’12 is the criterion we decide to go by, then we might as well cede the battleground and go home to memorize the Internationale.

It’s as pointless as a WWII admiral making convoy plans based on the requirement that, however they’re planned, said plan must guarantee that the Germans won’t use their U-boats.

The DemCong aren’t going to not use their most potent weapon, no matter who we nominate. We could nominate Alan Grayson and they’d still pile on him because he was running against their Master, Ogabe.

Don’t waste time on finding a candidate that is “acceptable” to the Obamedia, there isn’t such a candidate to be found, spend your time instead thinking about finding a candidate who won’t be put on the defensive by their inevitable onslaught, and think also about ways to counter their efforts. Spending a bit of time wondering about how to use their own methods against them would also be a good idea. Just ask Patton.

The Obamedia, although they most certainly still have the upper hand in the infowars, are on the defensive now and, keep in mind as you recoil from divisive candidates, their brazen lies are beginning to backfire more and more. The louder and more shrill they get, the more it is turning off the average Mr. and Mrs. America, as their Tucson Fuckup proved.

Who knows. Maybe fielding somebody who will drive them truly apoplectic is the single best weapon we have?

Thatisall.

The candidate we field must be the one that drives them totally around the twist! THEN, we prove the lies, and win.

Someone unapologetically Conservative (vetting hard for someone who doesn’t have any child-buggering in his past would also be nice) who’s able to take each MSM onslaught by furrowing his brow, cocking his head slightly to the side and responding with:

“But… that’s just stupid”

They’d have to clean Matthews brains off the camera lenses.

We should all have learned that from ’08, when we fielded the most milque-toast, nadless, indecisive, “loved by the media” candidate of the primaries. Exactly. We “took the enemy’s advice” about whom to nominate, whether consciously or otherwise. He ran the worst campaign of the century, with the possible exception of Bob Dole in 1996. That’s what we get from… Read more »

Oh BULLSHIT DJ! Obama didnt “convince” anyone that he was the one. What they played on was the whole “its a historical moment” bullshit. How many times have we heard that excuse from the 52’rs?

Contrary to your perception of how the Left feels, there aren’t that many Liberals who are all that excited about Obama at the moment.

You mean that the Lying Leftist think that Obama’s not Marxist enough for them?

In 2008 it was Obama the two year long Left-wing media “cult of personality” campaign that convinced those middle voters that he was the one.

By the way, there is no such thing as “the middle” in politics. To be in the middle would require one to have no opinion on any subject at all.

Elections tend to be decided by the “middle”, aka “undecideds” or “independents”. They are the 10-20% or so who pay little attention to current events, yet vote anyway. They will slavishly parrot whatever ignorant political opinions are promulgated by their favorite celebrities. When the Blood Libel Media (BLM) savages Sarah Palin and the Tea Party, these are the voters they… Read more »

The thing is, you want to make this a one-sided whine. “It’s not faaaaaiiiiiiiiirrrrrrr that people attack Saraaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!” Get a grip.
