Nothing pleases Obama more than conservatives administering purity tests. He’s counting on it.
I’d settle for mediocre.
Purity tests? You mean like being different from the democrats in ways beyond having a “R” next to their name?
What is a moderate anyway? So if I settle for "reasonable" restrictions on the 2nd Amendment, being "pro-choice", and settling for "amnesty" for "undocumented workers," I too won't get called a mean-old right-wing heathen and get invites to the cool cocktail parties?
Sorry bub, but there are timeless principles worth dying for. If that makes me purer than Ivory Soap, so be it.
If it wasn’t so sad, it’d be funny. Next election, the “true” conservatives will tear each other apart over their preferred candidates, some milquetoast will get the nomination and lose in the general, and the “true” conservatives will try to find someone else to blame rather than themselves. I’ve been watching it for years.
