Skip to comments.DeLAY: Primary fights leave GOP battle tested for November
Posted on 05/30/2014 5:35:09 AM PDT by cotton1706
The Republicans, as the national news media are only so happy to tell us, are having some pretty fierce internal primary battles this year. And thats a good thing.
The media narrative is that the GOP establishment is at war with the tea party, but I dont see it that way at all. Yes, there have been some fights and a few nasty campaigns, and there clearly are some who think or hope that its going to split the party in November. My view is that this is the one of the most exciting primary seasons Ive seen in some 30-odd years in politics, and that its the sign of a party that is on the move and growing.
I have in fact never seen the Republican Party as a whole so excited, so energized, so motivated as it is right now. People are coming out and participating. That has a lot to do with the fact that the American people have seen the consequences of government by the left and by the Obama administration, and they dont like it. Im seeing all kinds of people who were never involved in politics before stepping up, not just tea party activists, but people who are signing up with the tea party, with the Republican Party and with conservative causes dedicated to reversing this countrys political drift to the left.
I see pastors becoming active in ways they never did before, getting their congregations involved and making sure people are registered to vote. These primary battles are a sign of political strength, not weakness; thats why youre seeing far fewer such battles on the Democratic side. The lack of energizing primary contests is actually taking a toll on them.

Great find, thanks!
DeLay is one of the few Congressmen who has been University educated as a Scientist.
The Libs finally ran Tom out of official DC, but Tom is still an excellent thinker in the Republican Party, even though Tom is in conflict with the current Doormat Republican Leadership in Congress.
As a House Member, Tom’s District was in the Houston, TEXAS metro.
“GOP is Battle tested”
Tested for what battles exactly? They certainly are not marshalling their forces to advance any conservative causes. It should be called the White Flag Party.
Yep...but you are seeing change...real change...just hope that once the country clubbers in DC see the writing on the wall they flee and let some real statesman take over.
We need fighters, not statesmen. You simply can’t compromise with Democrats. They are political bullies; the only way you deal with bullies is to take the battle to the them. You have to take “territory” away from them.
There are fighters in the Tea Party but almost none in the pathetically weak GOP. You just cannot win any victories when you’re always playing defense like the GOP does.
Pelosi: east coast mob
Reid: Vegas mob
Baraq: Chicago mob
Boehner: country club auto supplier salesman
No wonder it’s “no contest”
