That is what it has now come down to. Will they (and others of a similar persuasion) hold to this commandment - or not?
Time to choose...
What say you?
I’d say people should be limited to one vanity per day.
In their view, only moderates should not be criticized. Conservatives are fair game. This is how it’s always been. They will not “restrain” (Jeb Bush’s words) themselves until all conservative oppostion is removed or coopted.
No. Next question.
If you feel that way, why did you post here? No one forced you to, but thanks for the attempt to digress.
Don’t you have some beans to count?
You asked in your comment #2, and I answered. Harden up.
I’d tell you the same thing I told you on your other thread a few minutes ago. What’s the matter? Didn’t you get enough people there to agree with you?
I don't think today's GOP gives a rat's @$$ about the Reagan Doctorine. They simply want the booze, the girls, the power, the decadence. Scroo America, the Founders, and Americans in general.
Why do you include Huck as a part of this list?
Harden up. Nice ad hominem there.
But your answer did nothing to faciltate the discussion, and there was no need for you to answer the way that you did. And I doubt that I would have had to ask that question for you to come on here and say what you said, given your title “1rudeboy.”
You are a troll. Your statements reflect that, and you are helping the RINOs here at FR in the process, but thanks for outing yoursaelf. Everyone here will know what you are about from now on, and I will repeatedly remind people here of that on my threads and on others threads.
Given what he had to say on his show last night.
No, Reagan Did Not Author the Republicans 11th Commandment
By KITTY BENNETT
As the voting in Iowa draws closer, Republican candidates have sharpened their attacks on each other, drawing a rebuke of sorts from Fox News moderator Bret Baier last night at their debate.
Ronald Reagan famously espoused the 11th commandment, thou shalt not speak ill of another Republican, he said. Yet to varying degrees during this campaign, youve all broken that one way or another, broken that vow.
Neatly sidestepping the question of his own attacks on other candidates, Gov. Rick Perry of Texas responded by questioning the origins of the commandment: Yeah. Theres an matter of fact, I think that was the Republican chairman, not Ronald Reagan, that actually said that.
And he is right.
It was during Ronald Reagans first campaign, for California governor in 1965, that the State Republican Party chairman Gaylord B. Parkinson issued his 11th Commandment, which said, Thou shalt not speak ill of any Republican. And, Mr. Parkinson warned, Henceforth, if any Republican has a grievance against another, that grievance is not to be bared publicly.
Now quit yer damn bickering
What purpose does it serve for you (or anyone else) to go on a thread and make comments like you are making here?
It serves no purpose other than to cause people to divert away from taking it to the ones in the GOP who are hammering Tea Partiers, and that is what we need to focus on, not yours and 1rudeboy’s digressions and red herrings.
Stay on target... The RINOs in the GOP. Focus on them, or go back to your bean counting.
Needed to go to all too
The purpose it serves is that it reminds you that you have no special privilege here to tell anyone anything, especially when it says to “shut up.”
You tried it on one thread and got it handed back to you and then you tried a different avenue of disinformation and persuasion - all based on RR. I think you’re the one that needs to shut up and go back to bean counting, sir.
Thanks, your ad hom earlier was pretty weak.
No one asked you to come on this thread, RINO-protector, for that is why you are resorting to posts like this. We know the history of what Reagan said. It has been coined as his phrase, “Reagan’s 11th commandment.”
Point is, is that Reagan said that he adhered to it in his goverenor’s race, and kept to it afterwards.
Now, do the same. No attacking fellow Republicans (what you are doing on this thread).
No attacking feelow Repubs. NOW. GOT IT? Now that you know what you have been instructed to do, you will go and do it. Have a good one.
Simple logic applies here, the people that are doing the criticizing: McCain, Rubio, McConnell, Graham, King, Ayotte, et. al. are not real Republicans. That is the issue, they are party infiltrators.
I happened to see Huck Friday night on FNC. Normally I don’t watch. He was nauseating in his scolding of Ted Cruz or anyone else who dares deviate from his way or the highway.
He accused them all of being like the biblical Pharisees. He said they were legalists and it’s they who are hurting the Republican party.
He said liberals aren’t hurting the Republican party. He practically denied there are any liberals there.
All this, while assuring everyone that he, too, hates obamacare.
As far as I’m concerned he has totally alligned himself with the enemy within (Establishment Statism).
And I can’t say I’m surprised, either.
I’m simply uber DISGUSTED.
What poster here at FR did I tell to shut up? No one.
You conflate telling elected GOPers that they need to shut up, with telling posters here to shut up, so you lied.
I told elected GOPers that they need to keep things in private, and shut up when it comes to airing things out in the open for people in the LMSM to feed on.
And I didn’t start the attacks on you, you started them on me.
Your ad hom preceded mine. Mine was justified. Yours wasn’t, as I did not attack you personally first. You said: “I’d say people should be limited to one vanity per day” before I said anything to you. There was no need for you to indulge in that talk in the first place, and thus, you need to go back to bean counting.
So I’m guessing I’ll see another new thread here within the span of 30 minutes implying the same thing - don’t air our internal grievances with RINOs in front of the children.
Sorry, it doesn’t wash - and you did imply we should keep our mouths and grievances to ourselves.
I think that Tea Partiers have found a very effective strategy here, thanks to some here who have come out of the woodwork:
The McCain’s, Graham’s, Ayotte’s, PeterKing’s, JebBush’s, Corker’s, etc, will NOT like being told to remember what Reagan talked about and “thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.”
Based on this thread amd others, we now have a way to silence their public bashing of Tea Partiers, elected Tea Party people, true conservatives, etc.
Reagan had to abandon it because he kept losing.
Secondly, it's about personal attacks and not about disagreeing with policy.
Tea Partiers now know what to say to Huckabee, McCain, Jeb Bush, Ayotte, Corker, peter King, etc: “Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.” A winning strategy against RINOs/CINOs here at FR and elsewhere.
My work on this thread is done...
The question is will I hold to Reagan’s 11th commandment when talking about Bush, Ayotte, McCain, Graham, et al. The answer is NO!
easy answer..... NO
This commandment has allowed RINO’s to infiltrate too deeply, and command too high. We need to drop this and admonish, point out Republicans who are not conservative, not adhering to the Constitution.
Will they? They break it every day!
They can all go to ....
tea party conservatives should call them “liberal republicans” to their face!
Enough pussy footing around.
Look at politicians as Liberal / Conservative instead of Republican / Democrat. All of a sudden, the “sides of the argument” become clear.
McCain, Graham, McConnell, Boeher, Ayotte, Collins etc...are all liberals. Liberal republicans
How many Conservative Democrats are there? I mean honest to goodness conservatives in the Democrat party. Are there any? Anywhere?
The political war is not being fought between Republicans and Democrats. It’s being fought between Conservatives and Liberals.
