Maybe not - but we can certainly blame the "base" for sitting out the 2006 election and allowing the dems to seize control of Congress and putting Nazi Lugosi 2nd in line for the White House.
"It appears that the Republicans have lost their advantage on the philosophical issue of the size of government. Among the people who voted in this past election, 59% favor a smaller government with fewer services, and only 28% favor a larger government with many services. Among those who voted for a Republican for Congress, they favor smaller government by a 5-to-1 margin. However, the plurality of voters who voted Democratic also supports smaller government. In the past, these voters wouldnt consider the Democratic Party an option."
Kind of looks to me like it was the squishy middle that elected Democrats, not conservatives nearly all of whom voted R.
There was NEVER any reason to turn on the President and the GOP. National survival dictates supporting them.
Suicidally minded nitwits are not political geniuses.
Continuation of the Iraq war to victory is all the reason any right-minded patriot needed to vote GOP. Those who do not understand this can never help conservativism and never will.
And the "base" did not turn on the party but the unrelenting criticism AMPLIFIED by the Treason Media turned off the moderates and Independents. We do not live in an era where criticism of the Party or its leadership can be left at that because the Treason Media will not allow it. Rather it is then used to cut the throats of Republicans.
I don't see how Republicans EVER get elected ANYWHERE given the Treason Media control of the public mind including conservatives. Foley is a perfect example of a NOTHING being created and turned into something huge. Nothing wrong was done (except by the RATS), no crimes were broken, no promises unfulfilled. It was a total nothing in fact but exploded into a huge story by the hammering of the Treason Media.
Meanwhile HUGE stories which would help the GOP and President are suppressed, distorted into their opposite or ignored through minimal coveraga.
Actually I don't think the base refused to vote GOP but the defection of moderate democrats and Independents because they were affected by the criticism of the GOP and disillusioned as to its ability to get the job done.
The squishy middle and the hopelessly muddled put the Party of Treason in power again.
Clearly it was not the conservatives who refused to vote for Allen or Santorum or Talent or Burns. These were among the strongest conservative voices in the Senate and future leaders. Conservatives were happy with them.
There you go--proving my point.
The Dems knew more about it than the Reps did and held it for release until after Foley could not be replaced on the ballot.
In not a single instance was it shown that Foley made an improper advance to a minor.
All the salacious stuff which the Reps didn't have was to adults, themselves homosexuals and folks perfectly capable of pushing the delete button if they didn't wish to continue the communications.
With what Hastert knew there was nothing that could be done. There simply was no other way to deal with this --a facially innocent email to a former page whose parents wanted no further investigation--without headlines accusing the Republicans of homophobia.
You were had.
That ought to be enough - if you don't think so then you have no right to complain about what the democrats do (which will be to destroy our nation).
Anyone who had a hand in allowing the dems to take control and do that is to blame - using the excuse that the GOP is not far enough right is not a valid reason to hand the fate of the country over to the treasonous democrats.
Which would you rather have - someone in power who agrees with 60% of what you believe in or someone in power who agrees with 5% of what you believe in?
