Specifically, Republican moderates beat themselves. Had they supported the candidate in the General, we wouldn't have Obamacare today. But no, they lost in the primaries so they actively went after the GOP nominees in the General. Real mature. The true extremists in the Republican Party are those in its left wing. The rest of us are the majority and we're tired of the moderates and liberals on our side, torpedoing conservative candidates. This is why the RINO candidates like McConnell are in our sights.

The most popular guy in the GOP is Senator Cruz. Not exactly a mainstream Republican. History proves that moderate GOPers are professional losers, whether in or out of office. Moderates are always whining that we need a bigger tent then proceed to exclude the base from entering so they can allow in social Leftists. Yeah, those gays and feminists are really going to garner you future Republican victories GW. :rollseyes:

You're right, that strategy worked so well for Presidents Dole, McCain, and Romney.

"Win first then fight". This has to be one of the most sophomoric comments making the rounds these days. The great one, Mark Levin reminds his listeners all the time that you CAN'T win if you don't fight first. It's axiomatic. The only path to victory is through the TEA Party. Shying away from conservative values of liberty and the civil society has proven to be a loser for the GOP. We've listened to the moderates for long enough. They need to sit down and shut up and let the TEA Party (AKA the hard working American public) do what needs to be done. Fight first and win.

The Air Force performance is nice but as a "flash-mob" it's super lame. Like they've never seen how flash-mobs are done.
Absolutely correct. In fact, Pelosi and Reid were responsible for the sudden and drastic rise in gas and diesel prices that put hundreds of thousands of middle income airline, hospitality, and trucking employees out of a job back in 07-08. This precipitated the housing crisis when these same, once well paid middle income people, could no longer afford their mortgages. I lost my business when the gas price hikes hit. Like other small business owners who relied on customers spending their discretionary income on things like vacations, entertainment, and restaurant purchasing; that quickly dried up. A thriving business with lots of customers tanked when our customers had to spend $100/week instead of $30/week on gas. It's an untold story. And by the way, the current price of gas is still about twice that as we had under GW. One more reason the economy has not come back.
BradK: "The problem with separation of church and state is what religion should the state enforce? I grantee you if a locality started engraving Koran phrases into the side of schools and courts that Christian groups would sue them." The difference is that this is a Protestant Christian country by custom and heritage. The Framers never had a problem with prayer or public displays of the Christian faith in any context. They had a problem with establishing a state church and that was it. Actually, they had zero problem with the states (plural) establishing this own sanctioned religions. Look it up. Secondly, Islam is a Satanic inspired religion - as is atheism. I would fight any effort to promote that kind of evil. OTOH, Jews and Christians worship the one true God. What's the problem with that? Keep in mind He will not be mocked - by BradK or any other secular humanists. Claims about this country becoming a "theocracy" are laughable. We weren't a theocracy in 1790 when Bibles were used as textbooks in school so I doubt there will be any risk of a theocracy if a Christian teacher encourages help and prayer for the sick and needy.
Actually, "pandering" would be to say "I'm personally for gay marriage but against it as a matter of law". The fact that Liz is forthright in her beliefs despite the fact that she has a lesbian for a sister tells me that she has quality values.
It can't be "repealed". But it can be defunded. Unfortunately, the sniveling little weasel in the Speaker's office is an unAmerican traitor (used in the dictionary sense). BOehner is working WITH Obama and his totalitarian buddies to destroy this republic - make no mistake about it. He makes Neville Chamberlain look like a war hawk by comparison. That's why it should be called BOehnerCare from here on out.
Conservatism is intrinsically "compassionate". We don't have to claim to be, we already are naturally. You're confusing something we call "words" (which usually mean nothing to a Leftist), with actions. Advocating free market, private health choice is naturally compasionate. Single payer or bastardized third-party health systems such as the abortion known as "Obamacare" are hateful and discrimatory to the poor and those who aren't cronies of the ruling class.

@sfair, if you are black, then you might want to think about how poorly you are representing your community. So far, the only thing we have heard out of you is ignorance and hate. Of course, this is also the mindset of Obama, so like you, he is about the worst person on the planet to be representing blacks.
