Somebody Call the Waaahmbulance for the Republican Whiner


Rep. Bob Inglis (R-esentful) requests the honour of your presence at his RINO pity party:

Outgoing Rep. Bob Inglis (R-S.C.) said Thursday that a “credible conservative” movement that doesn’t focus on “hatred” of President Obama is needed.

Inglis was defeated in a landslide by Trey Gowdy in the June primary runoff. Gowdy, a staunch conservative and Tea Party favorite, went on to win the 4th District seat in November.

Inglis lamented on CNN that the current wave of populist conservatism is unlike that of Ronald Reagan.

“We’ll get through and we’ll get back to optimistic conservatism,” he said. “We just got to get through this unfortunate period.”

Ah, the heady days of credible and optimistic conservatism, before actual conservatives had to ruin it all by kicking RINOs out of office. Inglis’s whining about the Tea Party actually started way back in June. Tea Party “hatred” of President Obama was so intense that they accidentally took out their rage on a white Republican. Go figure.

Republicans regained control of the House in a massive November victory and Inglis calls it an “unfortunate period”? For him maybe.

Don’t go away mad, Bob, just go away.
