Liz Cheney Mocks GOP’ers Advising Party To Moderate: Either ‘Wrongheaded Or Democrats, Or Both’
Mediaite ^ | March 29, 2013 | Noah Rothman

Posted on 03/29/2013 9:41:32 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

In an op-ed in Friday’s Wall Street Journal, Liz Cheney weighs into the internal debate going on within the Republican Party over how to rebound from their losses in 2012. After a series of withering attacks on President Barack Obama’s agenda, Cheney turns to the members of the Republican Party who are urging the GOP to moderate some of their positions on social issues. Cheney mocks those who she says are calling on the party to “move left” and dismisses these voices as either “wrongheaded or Democrats, or both.”

“President Obama is the most radical man ever to occupy the Oval Office,” Cheney writes in her op-ed, Republicans, Get Over the 2012 Loss—and Start Fighting Back.

The president has launched a war on Americans’ Second Amendment rights. He has launched a war on religious freedom. He has launched a war on fossil fuels. He is working to nationalize one-sixth of the economy with job-killing ObamaCare. He wants to collect a greater portion of every American paycheck, not for the purpose of paying down the national debt but to expand his governing machine. He doesn’t believe in creating a bigger pie with more opportunity for all. He believes in greater redistribution of a much smaller pie. If you’re unsure of what this America would look like, Google “Cyprus” or “Greece.”(continued)

Why is it that it appears the women of the GOP are the bravest?

Where are the men who would lead?

I see only a few that are walking the narrow path and staying the course, Ted Cruz, and Jim DeMint are two.

Societal emasculation, I guess.

I'd say they were cowards and traitors more concerned with power and fame, then doing the right thing.

Because we are. I must tell you that even here in this Arizona County, it is the women who are getting things done. I am constantly amazed by how many elected people just vote to get along. That’s not why I ran, that’s not why I invested so much of my own money, that’s not the job of an elected official. So I’ve been rattling the cages, taking names and getting it done. And you know what? People are thrilled. It’s sad to think that people are so used to being lied to, they just take it for granted you’re going to. That’s nonsense. We need to elected the right people to government. They are out there.

So Hildy, where do you fall out on the Gay Agenda/Gay Marriage and Illegal Immigration issues?

While I agree completely with what she says here, I am finding it hard to take her seriously. Is she not for the whole gay rights thing? Is that not moderation and a VERY democrat ideal?

Did she not promote an arch liberal as the GOP nominee?

Liz, I’m sorry. I don’t trust you anymore and you gave us all plenty of reasons to question your sincerity.

I understand that too much tofu might be the cause. That might also explain the softening in other social dysfunctional areas...

The commie libs were getting nowhere in this country until Barry and his Chicago mob took the party off to the extremes. Look at them now. They are kicking America’s @$$.

Liz Cheney is the daughter. Lin (Lyn) Cheney is Dick Cheney’s wife.

Because, men have been emasculated on purpose in the schools and media-—look who they put up for boys to emulate-—the Bieber-types who wear make-up and primp in front of a mirror for hours or jump up and down on chairs. They even had fashion designers designing “purses” for men now.

Men are targeted as “haters” and “intolerant” or “judgemental” if the speak the Truth (act like mature men). They go through “sensitivity” training (thought police) in college-—so they are “conditioned” to act like women. Women are forced to deny their nature—so they act like men.

Look at what happens to the really masculine intelligent men like Dr. Ben Carson-—he spoke the truth and gets uninvited from a commencement-—and look at Allen West and Michael Savage. Any person who speaks loudly—and does not back down from the truth-—gets intensive Alinsky treatment and labeled “haters”. If your white like Savage-—you haven’t a chance.

After conditioning in Prussian type schools-—you are forced to think like the “majority”. They destroy the intellect with brainwashing and kids (men) mostly “feel” and “share” and act like girls and learn to feel revulsion if the word “gun” comes up.

The government does not want men like Abe Lincoln, John Adams, or George Washington. They are corrupting boys by Sex Ed which removes morality from sex—and immature males, are really worthless to a culture.

Because they grow up to be immoral-—Schools put mush in their heads, instead of Wisdom. They have no principles when they grow up-—it is beat out of them by the system set up by Marxists.

It takes a woman again to have a backbone and a pair of testicles to say it how it is. The GOP consists of emasculated males whom do the bidding of the Emperor. Reince Priebus is a balless wonder whom is afraid of his own shadow. “I do not want to insult the established republicans, instead I will insult the conservative and tell them they must moderate so the GOP will survive.” Just go and join the democrats McCain, Priebus, Ryan and etc. get the hell out of the way of true Americans whom have the termity and the tenacity, Enough of moderation time to take a stand and move forward as the USA Constitution so dictates. Become leaders.

Someday history will record that the USA perished because so much birth control hormone was peed into the water table by women that men became docile home-bodies.
