Posted on 05/03/2009 3:11:42 AM PDT by calcowgirl

From the description:

The NCNA will bring together citizens from across the country to begin a dialogue with the American people through a series of forums, town halls, and an online effort that will engage people in a discussion to meet our common challenges and build a stronger country through common-sense ideas. The NCNA will be a dynamic, forward-looking organization that will amplify the common-sense and wisdom of our fellow citizens through a grassroots dialogue with Republican leaders.

These morons are just trying to take advantage of the tea party movement. They are well aware that for every patriotic American who civilly protested on April fifteenth, there are many times that number who were in complete agreement with them that for various reasons couldn’t attend a rally. In my humble opinion, it is because we have jobs and other resposibilities. They are now trying to co-opt this new born revolution. Like all new borns, it will grow and thrive if provided enough nourishment.

Someone need to email them the YouTube clip of Congressman Barrett’s boo out at the Greenville SC Tea Party. Make sure to let the RINO list know that there’s a message on the video for them.

You're looking at politicians that have been in office 20, 30, and 40 years.

And now (after destroying the party) they expect you to believe they want to listen?

McCain? Dreier? McCarthy? pffft!

Cantor, Romney, and Jeb Bush had the first “town hall” in Arlington, officially launching the group.

CSPAN covered it yesterday.

"The NCNA will be a dynamic, forward-looking organization that will amplify the common-sense and wisdom of our fellow citizens through a grassroots dialogue with Republican leaders."

Great. Another imbecilic "listening tour" by the same hard of hearing Bozos who've drifted so far away from our core values as to be virtually indistinguishable from the Dems. Now they're advocating further drift, cloaked as GOP "progressives" (Obama-lite). Here's my message to the GOP: Stop the NCNA bread and circus. Lead, follow, or get out of the way.

It's really a strange "listening" tour.

The first 17 minutes were Cantor, Bush, then Romney talking. Then they went to "questions" and each of them (C,B&R) are answering what they think should be done. Mitt was touting how he solved the healthcare problem. Jeb is big on education. All I hear them saying is how government is going to solve everyone's problems.

I'm now up to the 35 minute mark.

One somewhat amusing thing at the beginning -- Mitt made a comment about free pizza... and then said no, that it wasn't a democratic event. But all of their publicity is touting this thing as a bipartisan policy discussion. These guys have absolutely zero vision or consistency.

So the Republican party is going to go beyond the rino stage and become the pollster party.

We don't need polls.

We don't need town halls.

We don't need the Tower of Babble.

We need a strong leader with very strong convictions that we have a great country and a Constitution that must be followed.

When the right leader surfaces, we will support him.

Not one of the names on that list is a true leader of people.

The GOP insiders can start by dumping their 3.1 billion dollar budget plan over the side.

Their budget is Porkulus Lite.

Beyond that, at least we know who to watch out for and not vote for.

We already have a large, well funded group working hard to do away with the American Republic and the Constitution and bring us a “New America”; it’s the US Government led by Pelosi, Reid and Obama.

We don’t need a group of Republicans trying to outdo them.
That’s what made it possible for the socialists and America haters to gain power in the first place.

What we need is a for the Repuublican party to work hard to restore the Constitutional Republic and return the country to some semblance of sanity.

I’d say it’s pretty obvious who not to vote for. The problem seems to be finding who we can support. As surprising as it may seem to some on the left, I think we realize that not all canditates can agree with us on all issues, just as we all don’t agree on all issues. That being said, IMHO, fiscal conservancy and national defense are two areas where we cannot bend.

That is the trouble.

Here in Pennsylvania and around the country, RINO’s stop at nothing to maintain power in the primaries. They will run third candidates to split opposition votes when an outsider challenges an insider.

The parties are closed here with members only in primaries and indies can’t vote in primaries of either one.

Independent candidates have a higher threshhold of signatures to get on the ballot.

Arlen had no option but to go Democrat under that system.

It seems to me that the conservative wing of the GOP needs to focus on their message by abandoning the GOP which is attempting to find a larger “tent.”

The current circular firing squad is not very productive.

I will not accept their validity until they enthusiastically embrace being the party of “no” and quickly move on to being the party of “HELL NO” or maybe the party of “over my dead body”.

I am so sick and tired of them being the party of “we will spend your money slower than the dims” or “we will bring this nation to the isms slower than the dims”.

I’m always leery of “common-sense ideas”.
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Perhaps you have noticed that left wing garbage is often trotted out with a “common sense” label as in “common sense” gun laws. I am all for actual common sense.

Common sense tells us that housing prices cannot rise faster than incomes for an indefinite period. Common sense tells us that those who want to take away your only means of self defense do not have your interests at heart. Common sense tells us that as Alan Keyes said recently, “A bankrupt government cannot bail out a bankrupt banking system.” Common sense tells us that Obama is a left wing puppet who is in office for one reason, to destroy what remains of this great country. Common sense makes a sensible person shudder with revulsion at the image of Rahmbo.

Well said! In medical terms the political body of America has 100% malignant inoperable systemic cancer. Nothing short of aggressive doses of chemo specifically engineered for targeting the immediate removal of ALL cancerous cells will do.
