"Turncoats" is admittedly a harsh term but when was the last time you saw an entire faction of House or Senate Democrats publicly express their disagreement with fellow Democrats for a stand they took, like supporting Occupy Wall Street? Or a piece of legislation they proposed, like ObamaCare? When was the last time you heard any Democrat verbally and very publicly abuse their fellow blue coats calling them suicidal or whacko birds? Ever hear Harry Reid criticize Nancy Pelosi or Al Franken hurl invectives at Steny Hoyer? When will Republicans learn that you don't air your dirty laundry and you never speak ill of a fellow Republican -- even if it benefits you personally, politically, or financially.
I never believed that there was as stark a division within the Republican Party, but due to recent events, I have been proven wrong on that count. And, I am appalled that -- conceding that the defund ObamaCare strategy was driven by House and Senate members who were supported by and identified with the Tea Party -- the rest of the Party responded by visibly and very vocally dressing down accomplished Republicans with distinguished legal careers like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee.
Ted Cruz clerked for Chief Justice Rehnquist, specialized in Supreme Court litigation which involved arguing numerous times before the Court, and was Solicitor General in Texas. Mike Lee clerked for Justice Alito, specialized in Supreme Court litigation and was an assistant U.S. Attorney. Their experience and CVs are extensive. Yet, John "Dr. Strangelove" McCain, who petulantly refused to believe the Syrian rebels were mostly jihadis because he had been there at one point in time and knows the rebels -- is calling them whacko birds?

You wont because the Democrats have more than political ideology uniting them; the Democrats have religion faith binding them together.
Democrats have Marxism as their unifying faith. All else is secondary to furthering the expansion of Marxism and bringing the United States under the sway of International Socialism.
The Republicans for the most part are all individual and the only common goal they have is getting the majority of caucus reelected. But individually their primary goal is to get themselves reelected.
What Republicans fail to realize and Democrats have known for Decades is that nothing succeeds like success. The Democrats always have that united front for the public all disagreements are kept behind closed doors. It is always easier to succeed if you remain united against your enemy. And people like winners and would rather be associated with winners so if you have a record of winning it is easier to attract people to your side.
The Democrats also take the long view. If the fail to achieve a goal today they will try again in a few years. If they fail again they will try again later.
The Republicans never do that. If they fail today they say oh well on to something different and forget about it we lost. Take for example when Reagan tried to abolish the Dept. of Education. No one ever seriously tried to kill that Department of Evil ever again.
Seriously there is the Evil Party and the Stupid Party. I must like loosing because I am am a card carrying member of the Stupid Party.
John McCain calling anyone a whacko bird is a kettle and pot job.
You air it because we deserve the truth so we know what weeds to pull and what boils to lance.
Hiding the warts doesn’t make them go away. WE do.
I must like loosing because I am am a card carrying member of the Stupid Party.
This article is a keeper on why and how we really ought to be winners despite the few loud voices of dissent within the party mostly from the RINO class. It is also a primer on how loyalty can overcome the really stupid idea of a third party.
Since the leadership and elites of the Republican Party are corrupt globalists, its a good thing the Republican Party doesn’t exercise the same iron control that the National Socialist Party does.
I think a lot of folks not in S Carolina should send $$ to Grahamnesty opponent....Soros and Rove will be financing Grahamnesty
