I'm so sick of this media obsession with the so-called "moderate" Republicans. Did anything McCain or Giuliani said last night sound "moderate"? I could care less that Giuliani and Schwarzenegger are pro-choice. Neither of them will ever be President. And if Giuliani ever does make it to the Senate he will replace someone who was already pro-choice (and we know a conservative Republican will never be elected in NYC). All of these "moderates" are supporting GWB who IS a strong social conservative. What else matters?

I assume that Reuters also savaged the Demonrats for hiding the "Wild Eye For The Kerry Guy" liberals during the DNC convention in Boston? < /sarcasm >

K.B. Forbes, who was spokesman for former Republican presidential candidate Steve Forbes (news - web sites) in 2000, said some conservatives were also upset that the convention speakers' lineup was dominated by what he called "a bunch of RINOs -- Republicans in Name Only."

This argument is old and outdated, we have Michael Reagan and others speaking at the convention. Monday night's speeches/speakers wasn't even carried by the alphabet networks.

"Conservatives Take Back Seat at Republican Convention"

Yeah, so what? We had to take the back seat since we already occupied the front seat, the middle row, the balcony, the foyer, the street outside, and the parking lot.

I'm watching Rudy Giuliani on C-SPAN now, at an Iowa Delegation breakfast. He and others are finally able to recount the 9-11 events again. The media and Dems sure has hushed that up the past 2 years, it's as if it never happened in their world. But how many times have we seen old clips of the Pearl Harbor attack? That is a part of our history, as 9-11 is. It shouldn't be buried and glossed-over.

The 'Rats have Michael Moore & Jimmy Carter on display, and we have Giuliani and Schwarzenegger. I can live with that.

The party is trying to target the same voters Kerry is. And is doing a much more effective job of it cause unlike the Democrats in Boston, whatever differences we may have on domestic policy, on 9/11, the WOT and Iraq we stand four square behind our Commander In Chief. And it shows in the messages the speakers are relaying. The Democrats had to nominate a candidate and support initiatives they hate to their core. I tell you, principle and passion trumps lack of core convictions and political expediency every time.

The U.S. Republican Party is presenting a moderate image at its national convention but conservatives who dominate the party say they are happy to stay in the background, confident that President Bush (news - web sites) will take care of their interests if he wins the election.

"If someone agrees with me 80% of the time, I call him a friend. " -- Ronald Reagan.

That is not to say that all conservatives are equally happy with Bush. Some are bothered at the growth of government spending and the federal budget deficit and others oppose Bush's proposal to allow some illegal immigrants to obtain legal work visas.

K.B. Forbes, who was spokesman for former Republican presidential candidate Steve Forbes (news - web sites) in 2000, said some conservatives were also upset that the convention speakers' lineup was dominated by what he called "a bunch of RINOs – Republicans in Name Only."

That could be a considerable block of voters that justifiably decides not to be associated with the destruction of America.

Did Reuters report the incredible policy gulf between the Howard Dean wing and the appearance (AND platform) put on by Kerry & co.?
