"We have to be honest, and there's a lot of blame to go around, but I have to mention George Bush, and I have to mention Ted Stevens, and I'm afraid I even have to mention John McCain,"
"McCain, who is proponent of campaign finance reform that weakened party organizations and basically put George Soros in the driver's seat," DeMint said. "His proposal for amnesty for illegals. His support of global warming, cap-and-trade programs that will put another burden on our economy. And of course, his embrace of the bailout right before the election was probably the nail in our coffin this last election. And he has been an opponent of drilling in ANWR, at a time when energy is so important. It really didn't fit the label, but he was our package."
You won't mind if I send him letter of support so he'll continue to
I'm very much in favor of this approach, in fact I'm so much in favor of it that I'm dedicating an entire article to it in the hopes that my scorn will encourage them, lash them on - as it were. You do understand that is lash in the religious-based values sense not the ... well you know closeted Republican ... well, you know.
described how the party had strayed from its own "brand," which, according to DeMint, should represent freedom, religious-based values and limited government.
"Americans do prefer a traditional conservative government," he said. "They just did not believe Republicans were going to give it to them."
I strongly endorse this line of thinking for that Party, it will be particularly easy to point at all their successes. Every time the Democrats have to come in and clean up after their party they start all over again about how good their ideas are and how they were done wrong and it's just not their fault, and, and, oh hell.
"One of our principles is that power corrupts, and you need to disperse it," DeMint said. "And if our own party allows ourselves to be destroyed by this idea, and are not willing to stand up, then we have to change everyone at the top."
Isn't it wonderful to have a quote like this in hand? For six years these guys had full run of the Federal Government and the results are in hand. Their problem isn't their execution, it is the basic philosophy that screws them. A Katrina isn't a dispersable problem, it has to be a federal problem, no single entity outside Uncle Sammy can deal with it and these dipshits were fundamentally incapable, because they define the capability as the problem.
These people are fish in a barrel and if you ain't loaded up with a big bore don't waste my time. There's an entire comments form down there for you to deconstruct their bullshit and I'll take any ideas I can get. I've got a County Party to hold together and rebuild and a 64/32 R/D vote split to address in Oregon. And there are people all over this country that need to be doing the same thing because "Wow, we won!" isn't going to get anything done. Take names and kick ass will, post-partisan my ass, ask them about that.
They aren't talking about working together, they want to ram their theocratic vision down your throat. Look at DeMint's bugaboos, George Soros for god's sake and etc. How short is your memory that you forget their gloating about out-raising Democrats by multiples? You thought maybe you'd heard the expression "free market" over the past dozen years? Well then, get ready for a real assault on your ears. God and Christian are going to be nouns you'll wish were never invented by the time they get done with them.
They're going to make great big fat targets of themselves because they can't help it. They don't want to fix what's wrong with that Party, they want to win elections however they can and building demons is one thing they're good at. That and creating failure and if they can do that for Obama they won't count the cost to the nation. I'll tell you again, "Country First" is the name of a plutocratic bank not their sentiment. Don't insult your Republican friends and neighbors, deconstruct the myth, show them, ignorance is curable. But bring good solid hits with you because 30 damn years of propaganda do have an effect.
