Thanks National Review, For
Having Joe Scarborough Explain
What´s Wrong With Conservatives

Breitbart´s Big Journalism, by Larry O´Connor

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/27/2013 4:41:14 PM

This weekend National Review Institute hosted a Summit in Washington DC titled "The Future of Conservatism." The fact that National Review felt the need to call on Joe Scarborough to sum up the "Trouble with Conservatism" is Exhibit A for what is wrong with these navel-gazing enterprises. "I think the debate has been stifled. It has been stifled because we have created this conservative groupthink over 30 years that has become more and more narrow. A conservative groupthink that would allow all of our primary presidential candidates being asked if they would

Comments:
What on earth is wrong with National Review?? He is the last person who should ever give the GOP advice. If so, we are doomed for failure forever. Good. Grief. No wonder we are in such trouble.

I have no problem hearing Scarborough´s views. As conservatives consider what to do, moving forward, all views should be heard. Though I probably would disagree with them, I have no problem hearing from David Frum, Kathleen Parker or David Brooks, either.

I have no problem with Joe Scarborough expressing his views - I have a problem with RINO enablers giving him cover to pose as a conservative. This is deceit.

The people at the National Review have a vested interest in making sure the money continues to flow to the Republican Establishment of which they serve.

Anyone not threatening the cash cow and willing to
attack anyone who points out the farce the party has become is the hero of the day.

We attended NRI summit this weekend in DC and felt that William Bennett gave the best advice in telling Republicans to take the offense in fighting Obama´s agenda, that defense was not enough. He told the story of a football coach who advised his players that the only time they should be looking down is if they were peeing into their shoes. If Mr. Bennett were a little younger and so inclined, we should nominate him in 2016.

The night owl with Mark Steyn, Jonah Goldbert and Rob Long was another highlight of the weekend and included toasts to Andrew Breitbart and William F. Buckley.

There were times when I scratched my head and wondered why a woman pundit was discussing a 47 year old woman´s concerns about birth control and abortion, or why illegals were being discussed as a focus of voters´ rights.

The Flag I Used to Love

There is a flag I used to love,
Its name is called Old Glory,
It used to stand for liberty,
But now’s a different story.

Today it stands for federal pow’r,
For force, oppression, pain,
It used to cause my heart to sing,
But now’s the source of shame.

Today it’s freedom’s enemy,
A symbol of oppression,
It used to stand for liberty,
But now the tyrant’s aggression.

The "big tent" has inflicted us with all sorts of communicable diseases that have weekened the message and creed of conservatism.

Joe´s explanation would lead us to the quickening of death of our few remaining values.

Let´s give NRO a break.

Maybe they brought Morning Schmoe from MSNBC around to show an example of "Conservatives Gone Bad."

Kinda like what happens when you toss a rotten apple in a basket of fresh fruit.

I listen to the moderate Republicans and the left wing Democrats so I can know how to refute them. It is hard to do and many times I can´t stand it and have to turn the channel.[stomach turns] I also can´t stand the extreme right wing Republicans who don´t know what they are talking about, but just blab an oft repeated phrase.
I remember how Reagan was called a ´right wing extremist´ by the MSM and the Republican hierachy. He also was called a "liberal" by actual right wingers. [he used to be a Democrat they said and that stained him for life with them, Idiots] Why is the world so full of idiots who can´t think for themselves, and who don´t care about ´truth´?

I remember driving from Mobile to Charlotte with a stop in Pensacola over Thanksgiving 2000 to attend a rally for George Bush put together by Rep. Scarborough. He was GREAT! Don´t know what happened to him, as he had the crowd in the palm of his hand.

I can´t stomach him now.

He´s been dining out on his I´m -a -conservative -but schtick for a while. Considering the parade of leftists he hosts weekly, all spouting identical points of view, its absolutely ridiculous for him to accuse the conservative circular firing squad of groupthink. I´m not sure he even knows what it means or that he´s a particularly bright fellow.

personally, i dont expect much from folks who live their entire lives in the NY/DC bubble.

the same people who thought Reagan a buffoon are the same people who look down upon Palin and the Tea Party.

arrogance is no a virtue.

keep voting for whomever the republican party nominates. i am sure it will turn out better the next time.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Father Ray Kelly, the singing Irish priest who shot to fame with his wedding ceremony cover of “Hallelujah,” will perform in New York, on Tuesday May 13, to support the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform. On April 7 a short video of the 60-year-old priest, from Oldcastle, County Meath, singing at a recent wedding ceremony went live. In just 11 days the touching video has racked up close to 30 million hits on YouTube and his fame now reaches to every corner of the earth.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
