Tony Blankley was a guest on PJTV’s Front Page program for April 16th, 2010. Tony is a long-time Republican party regular and a frequest guest on political talk shows like The McLaughlin Group.
What was striking to me is that he said that the Republicans have blown it so bad in the last few years, that if they are given another chance in the next election, then it may very well be their last chance. Tony Blankley says that even he will be willing to try a third party if Republicans have a significant win and manage to blow it. Again. The last time Republicans had any significant majorities, they blew it big time. As a result they had their asses handed to them in the subsequent election of 2006. They blew it again and had their asses handed to them even more forcefully in 2008 with the election of Obama. In 2010, the voters are likely to give them another chance as big chunks of the electorate express buyer’s remorse. If they are given this chance and blow it this time, it may very well be the third strike that calls them out.
