Discussing the 2012 elections, Horowitz tells Newsmax that Republicans “need point out the damage the Democratic Party is doing. They sabotaged the war in Iraq. They sabotaged our foreign policy in the Middle East, so now we have a real war situation. We have Iran on the brink of nuclear weapons, thanks to the Democrats.”
Asked whether he agrees with conservative pundits who predict the Republicans will win the White House next year, Horowitz responds: “I think it could be a landslide in our favor, and I think we can lose, so I wouldn’t be so confident.
“A lot depends on the candidate. All of our candidates have vulnerabilities that worry me, and the Democrats are character assassins. That’s what they do. They don’t have ideas or plans to fix things. What they have is the weapons of slander and vilification and the politics of personal destruction, which is what is going on now with Herman Cain.”
As for the tea party’s role next year, Horowitz declares: “The tea party is the most important development in the history of modern conservatism, and of this country. If it is out there it will be a hugely important force for stiffening the Republican spine, which is the big problem that Republicans have.”
Horowitz also says Obama is “easily” the most radical president in American history.
“Obama comes from the left that I came out of, except the worst part of it,” he says.
“These are the people on the left who didn’t leave when they saw all their lies exposed. The left said socialism is the answer and still says that. They said America was wrong in Vietnam. They were wrong. They killed a lot of people. Some of us woke up but most stayed, and that’s who they are.
“Obama presents himself, at least in the first campaign, as a centrist, a uniter, and so forth. Those were all bald-faced lies. Based on his whole career you would have known that.
“The left doesn’t really have a positive agenda. It’s an anti-American agenda. Bankrupting the country for a leftist is a good thing because America is the ogre.”
Horowitz adds that his organization’s upcoming Restoration Weekend is “a kind of rejuvenation. We have a stellar cast — Glenn Beck, Herman Cain, Dick Morris, Ann Coulter, and others.
“It’s to fire up the troops and give them some hope in these dark times that we live in.”
