Bill Whittle: Why don’t Republicans commit to their own story?

posted at 10:18 am on November 25, 2012 by

I’m a few days late on this video, but as brilliant as Bill Whittle normally is, he’s even more so in this speech given at David Horowitz’ Restoration Weekend a week ago. If we can’t commit to our own message and defend it in the media, why would we expect voters to support it?

Recently in the Green Room:

The liberal media has a strangle-hold on our culture. Many of us would vote for Bill Whittle in a heartbeat, but he would be eviscerated. The conservative-living, liberal media-watching populus will be duped again. It’s a daunting problem that won’t be solved simply by having the right candidate.

I do love listening to Whittle… and Prager. If one of them had his own show on CBS I’d feel a lot better.

There ya go. That’s why Whittle won’t run. And in hindsight, I’m convinced that Sarah Palin didn’t run for much the same reasons.

Are you kidding me? Good grief, liberals make up at least 20% of the Republican Party.

Looking at the Senate, I believe your percentage is low (and slow). I think it moght be time to change parties. I wonder what would happen if all the Conservatives, who are no longer embraced by the GOP, switched to Democrats and started diluting the Dem’s Socialist philosophy. Just a thought…

I might be using a drawl today, or… moght = might.

Compare Whittle to Graham/Corker and others that appear on the MSM just so they can disavow their conservative principles.

We can’t just rely on one leader to evangelize conservatism when there are dozens that will disavow it. We must have strong conservative surrogates.

Bill Whittle for President!!!

Principals have no principles, alas…it’s late, very late.

I think it depends on where it happens. At the grass-root levels maybe, most Democrats don’t like socialism, but the loud and powerful ones seem hell-bent on eventually achieving it

I imagine it would be as difficult as getting across a conservative message on American College Campuses.

On what planet does this happen?

Whittle should’ve been Romney’s speechwriter–and whoever’s going after it in 2016 should hire him now.
