Happy New Year.
While America was celebrating the holidays, the Wall Street Journal ran a page one story the day after Christmas headlined as follows:
GOP, Business Recast Message Republican Leaders, Allies Aim to Diminish Clout of Most-Conservative Activists
The story said this right up front:
Meanwhile, major donors and advocacy groups, such as the Chamber of Commerce and American Crossroads, are preparing an aggressive effort to groom and support more centrist Republican candidates for Congress in 2014s midterm elections.
Karl Rove (i.e., architect of the American Crossroads SuperPAC), the Chamber of Commerce, and the Washington GOP Establishment have declared war on the Reaganite conservative base of the Republican Party.
Welcome to the 2014 election.
An election which, by all accounts, both historically and in terms of the specifics of President Obamas sinking ratings, should be a winner a big winner for the GOP.
Unless there is a deliberate, willful attempt to sabotage the GOP from within. Using the GOP Establishment as a launching pad to ensure that Reagan-style conservatives the base of the Republican Party are defeated by Establishment, statist Republicans. Republicans who will in turn so anger the GOP base that the base simply refuses to turn out in November. Thus handing President Obama and the statist forces of Big Government a victory they should never have had and in fact would be unable to earn on their own.
The GOP Establishment wins under the ruse of being honest, they promise, cross-their-hearts-and-hope-to-die conservative. And then they do the inevitable the usual GOP version of the Socialist Deal. Being realistic seeking (Margaret Thatchers hated word) consensus...
......This is the latest round in the GOP civil war that has been ongoing for decades.

They are more comfortable fighting thier own than fighting the rats who are thier partners in crime
The traditional businesses I see tend to advertise each other in a mutual trust synergy. The big Franchises like McDonalds could care less other than their chosen pet PR charities.
I think it is time the TParty organized just lie the traditional business to business vouching instead of this corporate faceless franchise narcissistic crap invasing neighborhoods.
They never learn. Rats raise funds for terrorists, terrorists bomb on 911...
I trust the GOP-E completely! Don't You!?/sarc
Fixed for accuracy.
No...no, I don't.
Well, in most places the Republican primary voters are so uninformed that they do trust the GOP-E; that is our problem. Look at the KY, SC, and TX people, GOP-E in 2014! Everywhere, really
Austin is the home of Socialists AND Communists in Texas. Nearly everywhere else in Texas they can’t leave the house due to the bounty on them.
Where does Rove live? IN AUSTIN.
But I DO trust the gop wing of the uniparty! Just like I trust the ‘rat wing of the uniparty....
I trust them to lie, obfuscate, steal, destroy the middle class, bankrupt the treasury, run sham elections, rape the Constitution, grab our guns, and stab conservatives in the back at every opportunity.
Freepers need to back the Tea Party and ask the McCain/Rove/Graham moderates to stop eating their own...
Thanks, and Happy New Year!
Really? Then explain Ted Cruz. He beat a mega-RiNO, the most powerful politician in Texas, the lieutenant governor, David Dewhurst. Dewhurst had $2000 suits, a slew of high-dollar donors, and the love of the lobbyists. Cruz won. Easily.
Not enough people (and gun-owning ones) understand what the Pew Sociology Survey found out when they politically profiled the U.S. population in the 90's (with three-four-year updates since then) and found that so-called "moderate"/business-oriented Republicans were very weak on 2A.
Back then, when liberals were hoping to break through on the issue and start confiscation, Pew shone a light on these weak "RiNO's" for them, and specifically mentioned, prominently, these people as a source of prospective backstabbing support in a Newsweek article about the survey and its findings.
I think a survey of constitutional and social issues would find these people weak across the board. They have wallets and bank balances in lieu of consciences, IMNSHO.
Anent which, it isn't a coincidence, is it? that Obama and his orcs wrote strong financial penalties into Obamacare for "failure to support Dear Leader" by signing up. Guess who that was aimed at?
The obvious calculation was, "they'll support Obamacare when the price of standing aloof is raised beyond their financial pain threshold". Cynical as hell, and 100% barrel-proof Democrat reasoning.
Very interesting post. I’ll have to think on that one for a spell. Thanks for taking the time to type it.
Those powerful, moderate and independent voters? They don't exist. They are a fabrication of the Left, designed to get the Republicans to compromise on their beliefs so their voters stay home and the Dems win by default.
Think of the Democrats as the rich valley-girl socialites, and the Republicans being those poodles or Chihuahuas all dolled up inside their designer purses.
Not to mention that many of these “moderate” Republicans are beneficiaries of Obamacare in some way. Consider the massive (and rapidly growing) industries devoted to managing the financial and technology aspects of health care: payment processors, insurance companies, claims administrators and adjudicators, actuarial firms, strategy consulting firms, EMR software makers, technology integration firms, analytics consulting firms, etc.
The leadership and mid-management of these firms are the classic McCain supporter who would be more than happy to snort a few lines with Obama (or other Sinclairian duties) if it would shower revenues upon their firms...
Well, that’s RiNO’s for you. Bottom line first, other considerations down on Line 23.
