I like both. Those who don't like both, should leave
This is complete nonsense. When Bush won in 2004, the gays over at DU were throwing a fit because they were getting blamed for the loss. They were screaming, "What, were supposed to get back in the closet?"
We lost because we (a) didn't get out the vote, (b) were short on time, (c) had a "1%" candidate in a time of economic turmoil who spoke in terms (i.e. bailout bankruptcy) that the average voter did not understand, and (d) had a media that let Obama off the hook on Benghazi and Sandy response
There were calls from many including Republicans to rid the party of Lott and all paleocons. IT NEVER, NEVER, NEVER STOPS.
To the headline: ok ok no dismemberment let’s just eviscerate them.
Obama will go a long ways in the next 4 years to expanding the left-——but it might be too late.
There may be nothing left to expand for.
I think these articles are all crap. Without an honest press, it doesn’t matter what the Republican party says or does. We have a state run media, and “the state” won.
When the Republican Party was formed in the 1850s, the goal of the Partys founders was to abolish slavery and restrict the role of government in economic and social life.
Since the Democratic Party is now about giving away Free Stuff, we should be about promoting the liberty and the responsible use of that liberty.
We must return to being a party about goals and not just getting particular people elected to office.
Rockefeller Republican George Romney and the Goldwater, et al. modern conservative movement..
July 8, 1964
GOP Warned To Beware Of Extremist May Destroy Republicans: Romney Reject infiltrators and purveyors of hate, said the Michigan governor . . . .
Move the little rectangle slightly up and to the left to see story.
THEY NEVER, NEVER, NEVER STOP!
IIRC most Rockefeller Republicans never supported Goldwater against LBJ.. and often echoed LBJs lies about Goldwater.
To hell with national politics. Conservatives need to figure out a way to organize enough to oppose a sidewalk tax at the local village council meeting. Until you conservatives learn how to organize, you will lose every national presidential election. Liberals are miles ahead of you in organizing.
Gee, how do I know that? Because I spent nearly 20 years in local politics, and I couldn’t beg enough of you conservatives to get off your fat asses to attend a village council meeting.
How many of you conservatives have a constitutional sheriff in your county who supports the 2nd Amendment?
You cheer for Sheriff Arpaio in Arizona, but you won’t go find and support your own Arpaio at home.
Geez, people, organize enough to oppose a sidewalk tax in your own bloody community.
