Will Republicans Support Yet Another Bush for President?

Uh, Byron, the fight is already on! The Republican party is so full of RINO's it's no longer the party many of us supported and believed in. And, we are abandoning it in droves. Now that the Republican leadership can no longer distinguish itself from Democrats, it is time for a party for real conservatives. Boehner's latest move in removing conservatives in the House from committees is the final straw!

The recent election was a undisguised referendum on socialism, and socialism won - again - when pitted against the Romney Republicans. Evidently the "real conservatives" sat this election out, or are too few in number to swing an election even when confronted with an enemy as polarizing as BO.

One must conclude that 'real conservatives" alone cannot win an election, and that the RINO's can pick a milk-toast loser every time. So the question becomes, with whom can the "real conservatives" form a coalition so as to produce a winning number of votes?

A mixture of "real" conservatism for the old folks and libertarianism for the young folks seems the only rational approach. RINO's have had their chances; time for a new, principled approach.

I fear real conservatives may be too few to overcome fraud and the propaganda messages from the Demonrat machine (aka the State Media and Hollyweird).

Yes, I have stopped giving them any money. My only question now is which alternative to support.

Same here, I quit giving to the GOP in 2004. I'll never support a Mitt McDole, ever again (Dole being the last).
In January 2008, at a John McCain rally in Columbia, S.C., I asked a number of local politicos to look back to the brutal 2000 Republican primary in their state, the one between McCain and George W. Bush. They had all supported Bush back then, and I asked whether, given the inconclusive wars, runaway federal spending and economic catastrophe of the next eight years, they felt they made the right choice.

The answer was yes. They explained that they had strongly supported Ronald Reagan, and then they supported George H.W. Bush because they had supported Reagan, and then supported George...
