However, Boortz admitted he did not think the Republican Party would succeed in saving the republic because it could not resist the temptation to run on social issues in the upcoming midterms.
Let me tell you what I think is going to happen – I don’t think the Republicans are going to take the Senate next year. They’ll keep the House, but they’re not going to get the Senate and I’ll tell you why – because they simply cannot resist the urge, the impulse to get into this social conservatism. The Republicans can’t run on fiscal responsibility. The Republicans, they can’t get out there and say, ‘Look, we are trillions of dollars in debt.’ They can’t stick to that. They can’t say, ‘We need private sector options to ObamaCare that can give people choices in the private marketplace.’ They can’t do that. They can’t stick to fiscal conservatism. They can’t stick to the small government message. The Republicans have this drive, this maniacal, this obsessive drive to get into social conservatism.
Boortz pointed to the race for the seat currently occupied by outgoing Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA). He noted that it could be a loss for the GOP should they nominate Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) in a contest that might have Michelle Nunn, daughter of former longtime Sen. Sam Nunn (D-GA), as the Democratic opponent.
They don’t call it the Stupid Party for nothing. This is why I keep saying that liberty-minded conservatives, Tea Partiers, and others of like mind do everything they can to help the candidates we prefer come out of the box so strongly that they prempt the natural GOP urge toward political suicide.
