There’s something you should know: we don’t want you. Oh, when the time comes, we’ll blog for you, campaign for you, make calls for you, put signs in our yards; we’ll even look and sound enthusiastic doing so. And with luck, we might just get you elected. Every single one of you will do a better job as president than the current President has done. And that’s no small matter. But you need to know that to us, you’re just a placeholder. Acceptable, but not who we really want.
As a placeholder president, we expect you to do a few things: appoint conservative judges to the Supreme Court; begin the repeal of ObamaCare; start to get the economy back on track; lower fuel costs by allowing drilling and pipelines. If you can get those things going, we’ll be happy.
But in a few years, there will be a new crop of candidates — actual conservatives! — whom we like much better. Allen West. Marco Rubio. Paul Ryan. Eric Cantor, Chris Christie. Nikki Haley. Susana Martinez. And many more. They’re paying their dues now, and by 2016 they’ll be ready to run for high office — your office. And we will support them like crazy. They will be our Obama, the real hope and change of the Republican party and of the country.
So, Mitt-Newt-Rick, enjoy your run. Enjoy your term in office, and do what you can to begin mending the damage that has been done over the past four years. But don’t get too comfortable in the White House. Because I think you’re going to be a one-termer, just like your predecessor. Why? Because the really good guys are coming up right behind you. We deserve them. We need them. America needs them.
