Jonah Goldberg: GOP Establishment abandoned Cuccinelli

There were many factors that led to Ken Cuccinelli’s defeat in the Virginia election. His allies in the state party decided to have a convention and not a primary, thus depriving Cuccinelli of legitimacy in the eyes of many Republicans. He did not clarify his social stances and allowed Terry McAuliffe to paint him as a Rick Santorum clone. The false flag candidacy of Sarvis siphoned Libertarian leaning votes from Cuccinelli. All these factors contributed to the defeat, but there was a big one that might have proved fatal.

The RNC all but abandoned Cuccinelli and sent him no monetary support. Granted the polls had him down at one point by 17%, but that gap started to close in the final week. Despite the poll movement, the RNC did not send any money nor resources to help push Cuccinelli over the top. This was an act of pure treachery and its obvious, the GOP Establishment abandoned Cuccinelli when he could have used the help.

In the recent government shutdown fight I found myself in polite (on my part at least!) disagreement with the elements of the right inclined to denounce the “Republican establishment.” No need to rehash all that again. But, I will say that in the wake of the Cuccinelli defeat, I think the critics of the establishment have the better side of the argument.

If the folks running the party want the tea partiers to support their preferred candidates — when they’re the nominee, at least — it should work the other way around as well. It now appears that Cuccinelli, a flawed candidate running against an even more flawed human being, could have pulled this thing out if he’d had more help at the end. In fairness, the Republican Governor’s Association did help Cuccinelli, but it came too early. The RNC treated him like a write-off. I can understand that temptation when Cuccinelli looked like a sure loser. But I don’t understand why, when ObamaCare became a big issue, the RNC couldn’t have done more. I’m sure it’s hard to ramp up at the last second. But so what? Things are going to be hard in lots of ways for as far as the eye can see. Hard can’t be an excuse anymore.

Ken Cuccinelli would not be my first choice if I had to choose a Republican candidate. If it comes down to him or a Marxist, then I would get drunk and and vote for Cuccinelli. Life is not fair and you don’t always get the choices you want in life. The Republican Establishment abandonment of Ken Cuccinelli is just another example of the dysfunction in today’s Republican Party. Sadly I see nothing changing and this mentality of losing is frankly really idiotic.

This thread is an open to discuss the elections in Virginia, New Jersey and New York City. If polls hold, The Democrats are set to pick up the Governorship in New jersey with the corrupt Terry McAuliffe. In the New York Mayoral Race, Marxist Democrat Bill de Blasio is set to win. Across the Hudson River in New Jersey, the Corpulent Guido is poised for a big re-election win.

An interesting note, take a look at the colors in the Bill de Blasio poster. He has the Old colors of the Soviet Flag. Coincidence, I think not!

Rand Paul attacks Democrats on their eugenics end game

I have often wonder why politicians on the Right don’t go after Progressives on their support of eugenics? It is a weak link in the Left’s political machine and would be perfect low hanging fruit to attack. In a campaign rally in Virginia, Rand Paul goes after the ultimate aim of Progressives via Obamacare. The end game is eugenics, where those deem superior live, those deemed inferior die.

LYNCHBURG, Va. — Tea party hero Rand Paul warned scientific advancements could lead to eugenics during a Monday visit at Liberty University, looking to boost the political fortunes of fellow Republican Ken Cuccinelli’s bid for governor.

During a visit to the Christian school founded by Jerry Falwell, Paul looked to energize conservative supporters by warning that genetic tests could identify those who are predisposed to be short, overweight or less intelligent so that they could be eliminated. With one week remaining before Election Day, Cuccinelli is hoping the joint appearance with the U.S. senator from Kentucky will encourage the far-right flank of his party to abandon third-party libertarian spoiler Robert Sarvis.

“In your lifetime, much of your potential – or lack thereof – can be known simply by swabbing the inside of your cheek,” Paul said to a packed sporting arena on Liberty’s campus. “Are we prepared to select out the imperfect among us?”

Some states ran eugenics programs that sterilized those considered defective in the 1900s, though all were abandoned by the 1970s after scientists discredited the idea.

One of Obama’s former Czars, Cass Sunstein supported Eugenics. It is ingrained in Leftist ideology the concept of a superior people. The Nazi’s Master Race and Soviet New Man were both manifestations of the ultimate aim of the Left.

Rand Paul grasps the weak links of the Left. Eugenics is an open sore the Right should pick on to damage the Progressive movement.
