Pat Robertson: GOP Base Is Becoming Too Extreme

Mediaite, with video if you can stand it.

Those people in the Republican primary have got to lay off of this stuff. They’re forcing their leaders, the front runners, into positions that will mean they lose the general election. Now whether this did it to Cain, I don’t know, but nevertheless, you know, you appeal to the narrow base and they’ll applaud the daylights out of what you’re saying, and then you hit the general election and they say “no way” and then the Democrat, whoever it is, is going to just play these statements to the hilt. They’ve got to stop this! It’s just so counterproductive!

Well. If they want to lose, this is the game for losers.

It's not that they're too extreme. I'm sure the old fool believes all that shit, but in a rare moment of lucidity he realizes they will lose because of it.

Note to Pat: They're all lying anyway. If there were enough of your sheeple to vote 'em in, they'd just shit on 'em like they've always done and work for Big Biz like they're paid to do.

It ain't that Pat disagrees with the extreme positions that the GOP candidates are taking. It's that he thinks the candidates need to be hiding their real positions from the general public.

Hint to Pat: If your positions are so extreme that they must be hidden from the general public in order to win elections, perhaps you ought to do a bit of soul-searching about those positions?

Oh wait, that'd require actual self-reflection. From a conservative. My bad!

That's how they got away with their bullshit for so long. Nobody knew just how nuts they really were. Now it's out there for all to see at the Goat Rodeo.
