Pharisees and Sadducees of the GOP

What a load of malarkey. The GOP runs the most left-wing candidate it has in decades and Alexander claims he is the most conservative Republican since Reagan. What a joke. Obama-lite was NEVER going to have any coattails. When will these people learn that the GOP base is sick and tired of the GOP establishment? the fact that this man was a supporter of McCain was enough to disqualify him in the eyes of most people.

Well Alexander is an idiot so...

I will say Romney was a far preferable candidate to McCain, who pointedly blew off conservatives while kissing up to Dems in '08 (& what did that get him?). Furthermore, Romney's primary battle with Gingrich IMO made him a better candidate. Would a Pres. Romney be going wide-open implementing Obamacare & Dodd-Frank? Would he be trying to enact gun bans by decree as a knee-jerk reaction?

Not that he was necessarily the best possible choice, but I'm still curious who stabbed Herman Cain in the back?

Since Romney gave the world Romneycare and pushed through an assault weapon ban when he was governor, we can be sure he supported socialized medicine and gun bans.

You know you just proved one of Rachel's points, right?
"They hold any minor indiscretion in a political candidate's past against him or her, even if that candidate has since become more conservative over the years."

In my 20s, I used drugs, partied relentlessly, felt like "the man" was evil and I cared little for what government did. If you had asked me about politics, I would have told you that the govt really had our best insterests at heart.

I evolved.
I discovered that drugs were, in fact, bad for me.
I realized that I had responsibilties and people relying on me so I could no longer party to excess.
I now speak out against governmental intrusion at every turn.

It sickens me how arrogant and self-righteous the "true conservatives" are in how you don't allow for people to grow, you don't allow for anyone (other than yourselves, I bet) to have ever changed their mind. Which means, you don't allow people to be what we are...creatures who learn, apply that knowledge and improve.

You may want to read the Bible a little bit and learn about the Pharisees and Saducees.....because, brother, you may be one of them.

Chicago, these are grown men! You think they are going to mold into actual conservatives once they get into power?

Chicago: Pushing through socialized medicine and gun bans are NOT "minor indiscretions". Here we had a grown man in a position of responsibility that behaved in an unconscionable and tyrannical manner. We are not talking about some kid smoking pot.

Every Republican knows another Republican who agrees with them on 99% of the issues, yet will attack them relentlessly over the 1% of issues they disagree upon. Instead of uniting against the left, these busybodies waste countless hours criticizing other Republicans. They will frequently do it under the ruse of being the “true conservatives,” claiming that anyone who does not agree with them is not conservative enough. Yet the 1% of issues they disagree with others on are often arbitrarily decided and not legitimate issues. Mitt Romney was criticized for being too moderate of a Republican presidential candidate, yet he ran...
