MARY MATALIN, after she married James CarEvil I lost respect for her, and don’t trust her.
There is no civil war. The grassroots exposed and eliminated the traitor that had infiltrated our ranks. That RINO from NY-23 was a backstabbing double agent.
There will be nothing civil about it as long as the RNC continues to try to eviscerate or water down the conservative heart and soul of the Grand Old Party.
Tuesday was just part 1 in NY23. Owens, like every other member of the House, is up for re-election in 2010. In 2010 there will be a GOP primary. Hopefully, Hoffman or some other conservative wins that and it’ll be bye, bye DeDe in 2009...bye, bye Owens in 2010.
IT proved that a conservative political newbie, from outside of the district, will pull twice as many votes as a liberal political insider.
And this noob didn’t even have good answers for local issue questions. From the accounts on the ground there, that is what hosed him, not any endorsement.
Palin and NY23 both prove that the message is very powerful, even if the messengers aren’t quite ready for prime time.
“The civil war is just wishful thinking by Dims and MSMers, so they can deny what’s coming in 2010.”
Well, kinda. The MSM just wanted to juice up the story to get better ratings and higher circulation. As you might seen in the TV ratings, it didn’t work.
I understand that these guys want to refute the idea that there is a civil war in the Republican Party that benefits the Democrats. But most of them go too far in insisting that there’s no real problem. There is a serious problem. The leadership is broken, and has been broken for decades, although Reagan brought them partway back for a time.
These guys are on the cocktail circuit, so they don’t want to distress the big givers of cocktails. But the fact remains that there is a serious problem. Not the conservatives who are revolting, but a leadership that is effete, rudderless, corrupt, and decadent.
If they don’t straighten out—and I’m not sure if they even understand what he problem is—then the Republican Party is finished, and will be replaced by something better.
Civil war? No. Suicide at the top of the party through decadence and senescence? Possibly.
I was heartened when Scozzafava dropped out of the race. I was appalled when she turned her back to the Republican Party and threw her support to a Democrat Marxist. It demonstrates the lack of integrity and character typical of the Marxist party, and lack of loyalty to the Party that sponsored and paid for her campaign. Personally, I want nothing to do with such low class people. She is typical of the Democrat party. What kind of morons would support someone so clearly devoid of character in the first place?
Democrat civil war if they stand with Joe Liberman.
Call Lincoln of AR, Landreau of LA, Nelson of NE, Pryor Of AR, Dorgan and Conrad of ND, Tester and Baucus of MT and Bennet of Co. They are running scared.
This Republican doesn’t want anything except for the leaders in Washington to stick to the platform.
I am putting them on notice that if they run a candidate that isn’t conservative that I will not vote for that candidate just because they are Republican. I will vote third party or Democratic if the candidates are conservative.
The most dangerous candidate - more dangerous than a lefty Democrat is a Rhino Republican.
.....The RINOS are infiltrators just like Iran was/is in Iraq.
There is no Republican civil war just like the "civil war" the press was having orgasms about was in truth an infiltration.
The RINOs are not Republicans, they are RATS in disguise. They must be thrown out.
Carville/Matalin keep politics out of the home. I saw an "alternative press" article about them a few years ago, they granted total access to a guy who followed them around and mapped out their deal. They run a decent home, and they keep their politics at the office (which includes media, of course).
Politically, you're right not to trust Matalin. She's very Bushy, ran 41's 1992 campaign, and in 2000 at the GOP Nat'l Convention she was Bush 43's advance woman when he went to the Log Cabins and politicked them very heavily over a closed dinner while simultaneously the Christian Coalition got Karl Rove as the Bush campaign's stand-in. Which should have told everybody in politics something right there.
At that dinner, Matalin went on the record with gay media who were present (the only media who were there, AFAICT) as saying that she, and by implication Gov. Bush, was in favor of "gay marriage" </oxymoron> as being "fair", and opposition to same as being "so unfair". Fact. Look it up on 365gay.com, which is where the account of the dinner ran. I kept a copy on media.
This handholding between Gov. Bush and the lavender Left went on until the GOP base held Pres. Bush's feet to the fire over DOMA. Then the Republican Unity Coalition (a grown-up version of GLSEN and PFLAG) broke up and the phones finally went dead between Gay RNC Central and the White House.
Keep in mind that Bush appointed gays to responsible positions as a political signal, and a lot of top GOP people were and still are gay -- incl. Ken Mehlman, recent RNC chairman. Oliver Stone either outed or smeared Karl Rove as gay in his movie "W.", and of course House Speaker (and Illinois Republican -- I mention them because they were the supine, spineless bunch who let Barack Obama waltz unmolested into the U.S. Senate) Denny Hastert never touched the ephebophile Pubbie Representative Mark Foley until the Gay 'Rats outed him in 2006 as their conservative-base-suppression October surprise that year. (Foley's sudden outing was totally a "lavender underground" political move, executed by a gay ex-staffer of Foley's in coordination with various gay and Soros-related [but perhaps I repeat myself] groups.)
