Something to Consider

With Republicans Like These, Who Needs Democrats?

Do we really want to throw serious Conservative candidates under the bus in favor of “star power?” Since the Republicans dumped Conservative Tom McClintock because moderate Arnold Schwarzenegger was a “sure win” in the 2003 recall election, California’s Governator has moved so far Left that Grey Davis might as well have been left in charge. Sure, the man’s got an “R” after his name, but letters don’t make policies — people do. Now weak-willed Republicans propose to make the same mistake on a larger scale.

This is a real interesting posting covering a few fundamental differences between the array of GOP presidential hopefuls.  Go.  Read.



  1. Simple question for the open-tent crowd: How do you expect to convince people that the GOP is about more than money when tax cuts are the only standard we hold our candidates to?

  2. Ya got a point there. This is going to take a some serious work to find the right candidate.

  3. And actually, Rudy doesn’t even have that; he & McCain are the only Republicans who still haven’t signed Grover Norquist’s no-tax-increase pledge.

  4. Agreed. I have respect for both men, but I sure don’t truth them. And I sure don’t want them handed the keys to the country.
