...just wait and see what the democrats (and anyone with "reform" or "socialist" in their party's name) have in store for him.
There are a number of us who don't care for him simply because of his flip-flopping (just one example).
But, I can tell you first-hand from behind enemy lines, those people simply HATE him with a passion!
I mentioned before that, for the most part, the candidates in this race have been, by and large, congenial towards one another and have taken this race seriously, and not like an anointment, as Pete did.
With the exception of one candidate (cough, cough Pete Hoekstra), I would have no problem in supporting any another candidate for this race.
Full disclosure: Yes, I did support and voted for Clark Durant.
But, it's one thing to call someone out on their hypocrisy. It's another to expect us to flat-out capitulate on our principles because of the "it's the best choice that we've got"-argument.
It's THAT line of thinking that got us to where we are at today.
When everything finally collapses, just how do you intend to explain to your kids/grandchildren, "Well, the candidate I supported wasn't nearly as bad as the other person who wanted the job."
That answer will definitely bring them a lot of solace.
If this post were written by anyone else, I would've have discounted it right away as the blue-bloods trying to save their sorry skins this November.
But based on what you have written in the past and the people I have asked about where you stand, I believe that you are sincere about what you have written and are trying to do the right thing (no pun intended).
Based upon his own record, Pete Hoekstra has already lost this race because he has alienated the very same people he trying to get to support him.
Nothing will change that.
However, if there is any good to come from this race, it's that after it is over, the party elites will finally realize the need to have a "Come to Jesus" meeting with the Tea Party and other Conservative Groups that consist of the base they are trying to organize and see what WE want in a candidate in '14.
No more smoke filled back room decisions on whose turn it is to run.
The elites want our support?
Then the elites had better come to the realization that they need us more than we need them!
