Sorry, Jonah. You may have missed it, but the party just ran a Progressive Democrat for President and dragged the party to the electoral depths in the process.
He was enabled in this process by a party leadership and apparatus determined to choke off conservative opposition. The Speaker of the House threatened conservative members with, in essence, desertion by the national party for daring to commit the sin of representing their constituents.
Republican leadership is a weak-kneed, vacillating mass of moderation and 'compromise', deliberately out of touch with the populist wave that catapulted it into national influence.
Rockefeller Republicans have not been purged from the Republican Party. In essence, they ARE the Republican Party.
RINORomney and all his little RINOs were and have been attacking any and all Conservatives in the party since the MIDDLE of McCain’s run in ‘08!
Purgeing Conservatives is an ineffective strategy, you see.
THAT’s why the (spit)GOP loses.
Again, and again, you see.
Ask for $$$$$—then, please PLEASE just go awwaaaay.
In ‘12, Conservatives did.
Happy now, RINOs???
I’m lucky to have one of those congressman I agree with more than I disagree. (by a wide margin).
I’ve got plenty of complaints about the GOP-e but only one for some conservatives. My only complaint with conservatives is the attitude that 1 vote we disagree with makes a congressman a traitor to conservatism. Michele Bachmann voted in favor of ethanol subsidies as a freshman but that hardly puts her in the same category as a Fred Upton or John Boehner.
My rule of thumb is that if I agree with any politician 100% of the time, one of us is lying.
I've read some really dumb lines since the election, and the one above has got to be in the top 5.
Using Romney as an example, Romney's problem, we're being told here, wasn't that he was a pro-gay, squishi life, big government, gun grabbing, Benghazi overlooking, conflict avoiding liberal. This says his problem was that he couldn't persuade the rest of the nation.
Horse hockey....he couldn't persuade conservatives.
And what was he trying to persuade the nation of....that a Massachusetts liberal is far better than a Kenyan liberal???
