Rush Limbaugh and Laura Ingraham are not the only ones who believe that the Republican Party will be destroyed if Mitt Romney loses to Obama in November. Bryan Fischer, who can always be counted on for serious, rational and well-considered opinions, thinks so too.
“If Barack Obama wins this election the Republican Party as we know it is finished, it is dead, it is toast — you can stick a fork in it,” he told TPM Friday at the Values Voter Summit in Washington. “And conservatives, grassroots conservatives, are either going to start a third party or they are going to launch a hostile takeover of the Republican Party.”
I’m all for either of those outcomes, though the second one is rather silly — the religious right already controls the GOP. All you have to do is look at the party platform for that.
While he did not predict Romney would lose, he had some advice for conservatives looking to rebuild the party in the wake of an Obama re-election.
“I think if Mitt Romney loses this election that the pro-family leaders in the United States should get together with Rick Perry on Nov. 7 and start planning for 2016,” he said.
Apparently, Fischer didn’t watch Perry’s primary campaign.
