Bernie Quigley Sees "A New Jacksonian Libertarian Era" Under Palin From 2016

For the second time this month the conservative pundit Bernie Quigley, writing at the respected "The Hill" site looks into the future and sees it is a Palin one. You can read the entire post

Quigley looks at the current political scene on the eve of the Republican convention's coronation of Mitt Romney and then to the possible future resulting from it. He advises that the most likely result will be the re-election of President Obama and the subsequent end of the Beltway domination of the GOP.

"Three scenarios arise in November. One, and likely, Obama wins. Sixty-seven percent of the people like him. Why would you vote for someone you don't like?

Two: Obama wins, the Eastern conservatives crash and burn and the Westerners, led by Sarah Palin (with Bobby Jindal, Rick Perry and Ted “Cat Scratch Fever” Nugent), obliterate them in 2016 and a new Jacksonian, libertarian era opens."

I have consistently promoted the same desiderata, as is obvious by the title of this blog and for those so inclined there are a history of posts supporting the concept and the benefits of such a future as Mr. Quigley posits.

As I have stated previously, for such thoughts to be made public on the eve of the nomination of the next GOP standard bearer is a unique situation. It surely reflects, in the minds of conservatives, that this election is simply a hiatus as we move to implementing the wishes of the great mass of Republicans in 2016.

Here is Mr. Quigley's previous statement on the matter which is, I believe, prescient and accurate and reflects the thinking of conservative activists who will take over the party after November  6th.

Writing at the respected site The Hill, commentator Bernie Quigley analyses the current state of the GOP and doesn't appreciate what he see-but sees great hope for its future. A future led by Sarah Palin.

Quigley absolutely blasts both Chris Christie, who he seems as the spearhead not for the GOP's current election campaign, but as the "carny barker" for the East Coast establishment and who should not have been chosen as the Tampa keynote speaker-that honor should have gone to Palin he suggests strongly.

Qugiley sees the real battle as not between the Dem's and GOP but internally for the Republicans with the tide of history going out for the Beltway bosses and coming in for the conservative element with Palin as a sort of charioted Boadicea, or a female Neptune armed with the trident of conservative economic values.

Quigley states what i have made the purpose of this site, that Palin will be leading the 2016 primary pack if Romney loses and if Romney wins, who Quigley sees as reverting to type, she will lead the challenge against him in 2016.

Here's the key quote:

If Obama wins this year, Palin will lead (against Christie/Bush) in the Republican primary in 2016. If Romney wins and yields to the tradition (which he will because his life is stuck in 1972) Palin will bring a challenge.
