"I had barely left the stage at CPAC when Republicans did the exact thing I told them not to do." #1. Republicans and Conservatives at not the same thing. We have less in common everyday. #2. The Tea Party does a better job of articulating conservative values. #3. Karl Rove, Newt Gingrich et al. are a major handicap to what remains of the Republican party. #4. I for one, and I think many others here, don't really care anymore what you have to say Ann. #5. We will prevail, even if we have to start a new party . One that we can trust.
