"But at least there is hope that the Republican Party can get back on track." And this hope is based on what exactly? And if we say hope does not require evidence then why none for the Democrats. I like your columns Ms. Parker but as an independent I am not on board the Republican bandwagon here on Townhall. They have had plenty of opportunity to be a conservative voice and they have refused to do so.

Don't 'Vote for the Candidate'

Where is the evidence that a republican Senate will block liberal Judges? I don't see it. I have been hearing this line for 40 years. The Republicans could not keep the sequester. Townhall has a lot of Republican columnists. They should talk more to the Republican candidates. Not with them on this one.
A big part of your argument here is ad hominem. I would also note that if the "hard libertarians" were never GOP supporters then why would they somehow become supporters in order to support a less than ideal candidate? As both a value's conservative and a hard libertarian I no longer see Republican's as conservative. -They couldn't even keep the sequester- I am not susceptible to the idea that things would be better if Republican's are in power. The Republicans brought down a party. Perhaps it is time for them to come down.
While I tend to agree with your argument about two party systems it is the case that the two parties can change. Obviously the Republican party is the example of that. I believe that the conservative argument is not being made. Neither is it being explicated by the Republicans nor is it winning the day. And most Republicans are simply not conservative so none of the benefits being espoused will actually occur. Regarding the Senate as a bulwark against judges I suggest taking a look at the nominees for Supreme Court justice who have already been confirmed by Republican Senates. That is purely a talking point. With only a few exceptions they cave. Sadly, I agree with point 4). I just think the Republicans need to become conservative as the needed point of consensus. Otherwise we will simply have Republican masters instead of Democratic masters.
I am with you Mr. Sorrentino. I am often a fan of Ms. Coulter's directness, but she has more faith in the Republican party than I do. For myself I am a cultural conservative and a libertarian, and a registered independent. I don't see the point of voting for Republicans just because they are not Democrats. You said it better I am not in favor of big government neo-cons because they have an R next to their name. In the end of course the problem is the electorate. We keep buying the idea that the other guy's welfare is a problem but we earned what we are getting. Great article, but sad.
Terrific compilation. Might there be some sources for these quotes available?

As a minor note, the remarks by columnists and commentators about the Presidents interest in Golf are irrelevant. Is the point that the President should never engage in recreation? It reminds me of all the complaints people would make about Bush going to Camp David. And younger folks like Ms. Hughes might not remember but Eisenhower played a lot of golf. Is the point that the President should work 18 hours a day seven days a week for 4 or 8 years? Personally I would rather the President, almost any of them, do a lot less. And the argument is basically an ad hominem.

You are suggesting that because they could use the money it is okay to basically ask for money. I am with Mr. Jacoby on this one. And as an aside if you are paying for the wedding you buy what you can afford. If you have to cut the list then you cut the list.
