There is a battle festering within the Republican Party which Cheney's remark alludes to between the Country Club Republicans and the Country Republicans of which Tea Party Repubs are a part. The Country Clubbers the likes of Cheney, McCain, Boehner and many others feel threatened by the Country Republicans, in particulat the Tea Party Republicans who threaten to upset their apple cart. Remember, Democrats alone did not guide the nation in the predicament we not find ourselves. They had help and plenty of it from Republicans who view themselves no different than the Dems; a ruling elite for who the rules of life do not apply. The perks and privileges of office soon becomes their entitlement which they will never surrender.

Because GOP voters have a BAD ATTITUDE toward the base. And there are too many of them, and they don't believe they are the rinos. There is safety in numbers, people.

Bringing me back to the same problem--too many LIBERAL VOTERS!!!!!!!!!!!!

The country clubbers got Romney nominated over Santorum, Bachmann, etc. So far, they are still in control.

How are Santorum and Bachmann what we need again? Did you watch the debates? No one talked ending social security. No one talked ending medicare. No talked about ending agriculture subsidies or more free trade. We need LESS government, and these folks are not selling.

Here is what I am doing--every single day, if I have a time to chat with friends or neighbors, I pleasantly carry a conversation about the election, the economy, etc. I find out if I am talking to a liberal, and then I PLEASANTLY ask them questions they can't answer. Makes them think. I do it all with a smile. Works every time.

If Romney is a country club Republican, which I doubt, but we'll see, it is essential and important that the conservatives and Tea Party folks, Patriots, Veterans, Christians, Jews, Merchants, Farmers, Ranchers send more conservatives and Christians to congress men and senators to DC with Romney...
I think if Romney had the conservative power behind him, he would rather be a conservative than a McCain Republican... But their will always be McCains, Bohnier Republcians...

I must admit Romney was not my first choice this go around. That said, he's my horse now which I hope to see cross the finish line this November.

So far his campaign has been pleasantly surprising in that he has counter punched his opponent at every turn.

I felt the same way about Reagan two decades ago.

Some men when faced with a Herculean challenge step up to it, others stumble. There will never be another Reagan, but I have to believe the challenges facing us are not insurmountable. Let's hope Romney is up to the task.

No, Romney is a moderate. Look at Massachusetts. He is a moderate. He is also bought and paid for by the country clubbers. But he is the best we could get.

You are correct, I totally agree, but I don't think we had any better choices. The ideal choices were not presented. But yes, they were the best of the lot in my opinion. Certainly better than Romney, but we have to take what we get now.

But they vote, and if everybody did the same thing we could make progress...

Apparently, former Vice President Dick Cheney thinks it was “a mistake” for John McCain to have chosen former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate in 2008:

Former Vice President Dick Cheney said it was a mistake for Republican Sen. John McCain to pick Sarah Palin as his vice presidential nominee.

"The test to get on that small list has to be, 'Is this person capable of being president of the United States?," Cheney said on ABC's "This Week."

"I like Gov. Palin. I've met her. I know her. She - attractive candidate. But based on her background, she'd...
