“Is that comment aimed at Rove? Or at FReepers who dont like what Rove is doing?
I cant tell. Seriously.”
It is not merely a black and white issue. Plenty of blame to be spread, for the current lack of unity.
So what’s the answer?
Run only hand-picked blue-bloods?
John Adams said: In politics the middle way is none at all.
I don t know about you, but I am impatient with those Republicans who after the last election rushed into print saying, We must broaden the base of our partywhen what they meant was to fuzz up and blur even more the differences between ourselves and our opponents.
It was a feeling that there was not a sufficient difference now between the parties that kept a majority of the voters away from the polls. When have we ever advocated a closed-door policy? Who has ever been barred from participating?
Our people look for a cause to believe in. Is it a third party we need, or is it a new and revitalized second party, raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people?
Let us show that we stand for fiscal integrity and sound money and above all for an end to deficit spending, with ultimate retirement of the national debt.- Ronald Reagan CPAC 1975

I thought it was Bush’s fault

Oh, spare us the sanctimony. Rove and the GOP-E are the ones looking the Tea Party gift horse in the mouth and bashing that brand of conservatism every chance they get. Plenty of GOP-E candidates failed in 2012, something the RINOs fail to acknowledge. And the golden boy of the GOP-E, Mitt Romney, fell flat even though most conservatives came around and supported him.
