All the Bush's, Karl Rove, All the Conservative punditry from David Brooks, to Bill Kristol, all the leadership of the GOP Party machine. Any GOP politician who has served more then 3 terms, the current, and former, GOP office holders. Heads of all the state GOP parties. The people who make up the RNC, etc etc etc

I see the GOP Establishment is starting on phase 1 of this plan

GOP Empire's Plan to Crush Tea Party Rebels

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2792217/posts

Step 1 of this plan. Claim not to be the Establishment.

IDEAS trump names, every time.

The ideas that the “Republican Establishment” has adopted has led to a rudderless ship, Bipartisan Cave-In journey into the bottomless VALLEY OF DEBT, and America’s current financial death spiral.

It is really very simple: “Will the effect of the words and actions of a politician increase or decrease the Total National Federal Debt within one year?”

If the answer to the above question is to decrease the TNFD, then that politician is a Conservative.

Thus, a Conservative IS the Middle-of-the-Road political position in America.

To clarify, the dictionary definition of “conserve” is as follows: “1. To protect from loss or depletion, preserve.”

A Republican is a “Big Tent” member in search of voters to put themselves or their candidates in public office. Their Political Party has lost touch with the Silent Majority, who are now the Vocal Tea Party.

To clarify, just ask yourself the following question: “What is this politician trying to conserve?”

Good question.

Simple answer - Anyone in the Party who has now, or has ever had decision making authority, or input, into what candidates get funding.

You’re right.

I’d say, GOP = any Conservative who thinks that old methods and ideas can meet the new challenges to Conservatism.

Michael Steele: No longer RNC chairman, but general RINO who plays the race card on a weekly basis.

Mitt Romney: Architect of Obamacare. ‘Nuff said.

John McCain: Claims to be conservative, but always sides with liberals on all major issues out of a desire to look bi-partisan.

Lindsey Graham: Ditto.

The Bush Family: Claim to be Reagan Conservatives, but privately they have always had it in for Reagan. They are the epitome of Northeastern elitist liberal Republicanism. George W. Bush signed into law the largest expansion in the size and scope of the Federal Government since Medicare (since eclipsed by Obamacare). He also frequently caved to liberals on issues of reform of Fannie and Freddie, permanent tax cuts, spending reductions, etc.

Ed Rollins - vicious hack who hates conservatives, especially if the conservative is named Sarah Palin. He latched on to Michelle Bachmann, made her appear anti-Palin, and then became a plague on Bachmann’s campaign.

The RINO establishment is not unlike the Borg of the 1990s Star Trek TV series. Many of the politicians and pundits mentioned here were actually conservative in their earlier career, but once they come to Washington or become mainstream analysts, the tendency to "get along" increases as they become further embedded into the political, social, and cultural arenas.

Those that don't play the game are eventually forced from office (e.g. James Watt, Reagan's Interior Secretary), are removed from mainstream commentary (Glenn Beck, Pat Buchanan) or are marginalized as "kooks" (Michelle Bachmann, Ron Paul).

Anyone who uses the terms (or some similar paraphrase)

“Wooing independents is what wins elections”
“Compassionate Conservatism”

I’m sure there are more but that’s a good start.

I believe that you are making my point: “Thus, a Conservative IS the Middle-of-the-Road political position in America.” when you describe how very isolated people are within the Beltway: “ - - - the tendency to “get along” increases as they become further embedded into the political, social, and cultural arenas. - - - “
