There ain’t but one kind of Conservative that I will VOTE for... A REAGAN CONSERVATIVE!
“Common Sense”, in the sense that if you don’t win elections, you’re just making noise and making no sense.
Gotta keep whipping them.
So does that mean all the other Conservatives are stupid?
Compassionate Conservative = Liberal Republican.
Well one can used whatever moniker they want or like.... but the one who coined common sense conservatives recently, used it as meaning fiscal constraint and 10th admendment empowerment and interchanged it with the meaning of Reagan conservative.......If your guy, Duncan Hunter wants to used just conservative then fine....its no big deal.
I have been thinking the same thing. Since I have been hearing that all the time for a while, I figured it must be the new buzz slogan BS.
Conservatives have common sense, so this is a foolish.
Limp wristed, spineless RINO republicans are perpetually looking for a way to placate the NY TIMES! HARD CORE conservative should be the most popular title.
I hate the phrase “common sense” as it is used in modern political discourse. Assumes you are right without bothering to prove anything. Palin uses it alot. I cringe when I hear it.
When I hear the phrase I start listening very carefully because usually it is a cover for some kind of demagoguery.
I don’t think that “Common Sense Conservative” means the same thing as “Compassionate Conservative”.
So if you mean “new” as in “replacement for”, maybe so, but if you mean “new” as in “equivalent to”, not so much.
For what it’s worth, I seem to remember Sarah explaining what the difference was between a plain old conservative, and a “common sense” conservative, in her book. Maybe someone who has memorised it could enlighten us further.
Your post makes a lot of common sense.
Actually, this is needed.
So many conservatives said they were "revolutionaries" -- Reagan Revolution, Gingrich Revolution -- back in the Eighties and Nineties that it scared people.
"Common sense reform" is more accurate and doesn't give voters who aren't ideologically committed the heebie-jeebies in that way.
And I am so pissed that I didn't make "the list."
