Posted on 12/27/2008 9:57:48 AM PST by St. Louis Conservative
A battle for the soul of the Republican Party has spilled over into the contest for national committee chairman, as conservative members are prodding candidates to shift their way.
Now that the presidential campaign is over and the congressional leadership elections are settled, conservative activists are turning to the race for chairman as their next chance to shape the party.
Already, one candidate has come under fire for his association with a centrist organization, while a group of prominent RNC members is set to put others through an exhaustive test of their personal conservatism.
"It's important that the chairman be in line with the principles of the Republican Party as expressed in its platform, and that means the person is a conservative," said Indiana National Committeeman Jim Bopp, a prominent Republican lawyer. "It's important that the chairman wants to unite all strands of conservatism, because that's where we went wrong. We went wrong by not being faithful to our conservative principles."
Bopp, along with nearly half the voting members of the committee, has established the Conservative Steering Committee, which will meet with candidates Jan. 6 and hold a straw poll to determine whether each candidate is conservative enough to serve as chairman. The group is semi-exclusive, with some RNC members invited to join while others have had to ask to be let in.

This Duncan and his ilk should be tarred and feathered for the unbelievably horrible job they have done.
They ought to be made to face the consequences of their actions, instead they will continue to line their pockets and hang out at the country clubs collecting their congressional pensions.
Blackwell and Katon Dawson stand out as the best candidates.
I agree 100%. I want a Conservative Partisan Patriot... and nothing less.
Therefore, the presidency of Ronald REAGAN was a DIVINE BLESSING, and a DIVINE INTERVENTION sent by GOD To straighten us out.
The fun part is; this is where I came in...
I wouldn’t want to be as old mentally as you are, ever.
“Anyone who would call themselves a conservative and still support the most liberal Governor in the history of the republic, and his takeover of the Republican Party, is already sick. I’m simply diagnosing the disease.”
No, you and your constant disgusting crusade against Romney is sick. Live with it.
What a novel idea!
Hence your problem.
“Hence your problem.”
No problemo. You ARE the problem.
I am not a supporter. I am only interested in being fair.
There was alot of effort for the legislature to vote for allowing traditional marriage to be put on the ballot. The legislature voted twice on this issue under Romney’s pressure and the signatures gathered. This is fact and happened. If you choose to deny it, it only marks you further as a person with an agenda, not one interested in the truth.
“Darling, if there is any reason why the IL GOP is in the state that it is currently in, I think we need look no further than you. Proof positive some people will truly elect any unaccomplished nincompoop or absolute fraud to a party position or office of trust. But you do have a nice day now. ;-)”
Sweetheart, I can’t stand my state’s politics, but of course, honey, you wouldn’t know how I feel about my state’s politics as you don’t know me at all other than on these threads when I choose to interact with you, which many other Freepers won’t even bother to do anymore because they know better than to waste their time. But indeed, I will have a nice day, and in fact have been for hours now. Only sour notes are when I am interacting with you, so I think I will stop now and go eat something yummy to get the bad taste I momentarily am having, out of my mouth. Sweet dreams, honey bunch. :-)
Oh, why 'tis that ? Are you just gritting your teeth your Socialist Governor doesn't have an "R" after his name ? Maybe you can write your beloved idol and ask him to ride in on his stallion (or that stationwagon he tied his dog to like Clark Wilhelm Griswold) and save Illinois from those horrible Conservative Republicans !
"but of course, honey, you wouldnt know how I feel about my states politics as you dont know me at all other than on these threads when I choose to interact with you"
Oh, and what a treat and singular delight that is !
"which many other Freepers wont even bother to do anymore because they know better than to waste their time."
Ah, yes. The "Magic Undies" Contingent. I don't think my heart can stand the strain of their collective shunnery...
"But indeed, I will have a nice day, and in fact have been for hours now."
Now that it's dark, of course, and you're free to roam the landscape of DuPage County looking for those unsuspecting victims... But then, it's back to the coffin come sunup. :-)
"Only sour notes are when I am interacting with you, so I think I will stop now and go eat something yummy to get the bad taste I momentarily am having, out of my mouth."
Ah, the bitter taste of Conservatism ! I'll leave you to your Slick Willard Socialist Strychnine Brownies... The only tasty treat for a discerning RINO vampire such as yourself. ;-)
"Sweet dreams, honey bunch. :-)"
Goodness gracious, as eloquent as ever ! Oh, c’mon, honey, can’t we all be treated to an evening-long soliloquy of “I know you are, but what am I ?” followed by a dessert of “Yo mama !” ? Must you cut right to the cherry first without bothering with the whipped cream ? You Slick Willardbots are so uncultured and uncouth !

You need new material, Flagloony.
“You need new material, Flagloony.”
You’re gonna pay for that.
