GOP Establishment Invites Its Own
Extinction by Declaring War on Tea Party
and Seeking Compromise with Democrats

RUSH: Eric Cantor is out saying the Republicans have to change. The Republican Party has to change. The Republican Party has to show that we want to help people. The Republican Party has to reach across the aisle. Karl Rove and his PAC. What is it, American Crossroads? Is that the name of his PAC? There was a New York Times story a couple of days ago that basically said they are gonna end up choosing Republican primary candidates so that they´re not "Tea Partied." The Republican establishment has had it with nominees like Sharron Angle,

Comments:
The Go Along to Get Along Gang in the Republican Party is trying hard to push out the Social Conservatives from the party. The 2012 Republican Primary was the most intense effort I have ever seen by them in their effort to purge Social Conservatism. They got their candidate of choice for the General Preisdential Election and LOST and then wondered why.

Rove has one thing in mind. That is to get Jeb Bush in the WH. That`s his end game.

Good luck with that, Karl.

bwaaahahahahaha

There is a large segment of the Republican party that only votes for them because of the social issues. If the Republican party becomes liberal, there will be no reason to vote for them, since many of these are low income or seniors dependent on social programs. If the social issues become moot, why would these voters not vote for the party that claims to preserve their social programs? Or become discouraged and not vote at all?

New York "Republicans" compromised plenty with Democrats over the past 30 years - and look at the result. The Republican Party is a virtual non-entity in the State of New York. Selling out Republican constituents for 30 pieces of silver whenever provided the opportunity has decimated the GOP in New York.

After the latest insult by nominally "Republican" Dean Skelos in agreeing to turn 80% of the gun owners in the state into felons at the swipe of Andrew Cuomo´s pen, the state GOP will have to be burned down to the ground in order to rebuild it.

If the national GOP follows the same path, it will suffer (and the nation will suffer) the same fate.

Bring it on, GAGAG

Grass roots support (both $$ and time) will dry up as true conservative candidates siphon off the resources.

No need to funnel it thru the RNC, we will give directly to those who we know will listen to us.

Having a third party made up of tea party types would be good for this country.

the democratic party is too liberal for traditional dems, and tradional dems (reagan democrats) wont go near the republican party after what the bushes, dole, mccain, romney etc did to the party (who can blame them)

a new party based upon integrity and truth would be able to pick up a lot of conservative dems.

the independents can vote for the repugs as they will not be as severely left as the democratic party is today

in a nutshell, the dimms have the most to lose by a third party

I don´t agree with the establishment people, but the truth is that social issues should NOT be part of the TEA parties in the first place. the TEA parties could win all the time if they would focus only on economics, fiscal responsibility, freedom , limited government and the Constitution. Forget the subjects that we have already lost for nearly 40 years. You can fight for them AFTER you win. The establishment needs to work with the TEA parties and the TEA parties need to put the social issues on hold. That is the ONLY way we will EVER get control again.

I find myself turning Rush off more and more.

notice that he did not say anthing about Rove directly?

Rush and Rove remind of the two old guys in trading place betting on Eddie Murphy. I dont think they care anymore. it is all about the money for these two.

cant remember Rush ever DOING anything other than talking.

I received an email today from the Senate Conservatives Fund on this war perpetrated by Rove and American Crossroads. They said they will band together with other conservative groups as much as possible for 2014 to elect conservative/Tea Party types and get rid of the dead wood incumbents. Then it hit me. McConnell is scared to death of having a Tea Party challenge in 2014. He has been kissing up to the Tea Parties in Kentucky (reportedly) because he has heard they will try to primary him. I think he was primaried in his last election six years ago. I am betting Rove has McConnell in mind when saying they will fight for the incumbent over the Tea Party candidate.
I agree with Rush, Rove is a fool for starting a war with Tea Party members. He threw 300 million away in 2012, the Tea Party can get it done for much less in 2014.

It´s been fun unregistering for all of these Republican email lists, and even more fun when I suggested to the gentleman on the phone that I wouldn´t be reactivating my Republican Party membership this year.

Irrelevancy is just around the corner.

Reagan won by talking about the issues.
The republican party needs to decide what it stands for and then get the message out.
Smaller government.
Lower taxes.
Strong military.
Close down the border.
Liberty.
Individual Freedom.

#14 - good possibility that email was from Ted Cruz who is on this committee as second in charge of the Senatorial Conservatives.

After the backlash to the NYT´s piece on Rove´s comments, the NYTs scrubbed Rove completely from the article and saying it was only the Atty. Law´s opinion and comments.

Got a call today:

"Hello, this is the Republican Party calling..."

"Well you can hold it right there. I´ll never give another dime to the Republican Party until Rove is gone. All my money is going to the NRA, I´m an endowment member and still shelling out, and the Tea Party. Now, until Rove is gone, along with the current Republican assault on the Tea Party, take me off your damn call list."

Rove and his ilk are only interested in power. The health and welfare of the nation comes in a distant, distant second, if at all. In this regard Rove is as clear and present a danger to the future of this country as Cass Sunstein.

Repeating an earlier post, Republican politics has nothing to do w/principled conservatism and never did. Sad the vincible ignorance of many posts. The GOP is a secular progressive and corporatist party and has been since 1870; which is why they repeatedly choose jackasses such as the Bush Buffoons, Dole, McCain, Romney etc.

The wimpy establishment Republicans also known as as the Democrat lite Party will never win any sort of social welfare bidding war with the liberal Democrats to secure the majority of future votes from ethnic and racial population groups.

The only way they could do that is become more liberal then the liberal Democrats, and if the wimpy Republicans did that, they would loose enough of their conservative base who would form a third political party, causing the wimpy Republicans to be a minority inconsequential political party if they even survived at all.

Just ahead of a possible Hillary run for the presidency, the Clinton Library released a new load of documents from President Bill Clinton’s years in the White House. One of those documents attempts to explain Hillary´s "vast right-wing conspiracy" claim in which the Clinton administration accused Republican staffers of colluding with "extremists" on the Internet to hurt the Clintons. On January 27, 1998, Hillary Clinton appeared on NBC´s Today Show. During her interview with Matt Lauer, she claimed that a "vast right-wing conspiracy" had been trying to destroy her husband "since the day he announced for president." That interview drew

When British photojournalist Charles Ommanney traveled through six states to photograph American gun owners, he found something he did not expect: they don´t fit the stereotypes. According to PolicyMic.com, Ommanney was sent to photograph American gun owners for the German magazine Stern. In so doing, he discovered "people who are often far from the stereotypical vision of the American ´gun-nut.´" He found a teenager named Elizabeth, who posed with a Walther handgun "in front of a floral wallpaper backdrop." He found entire families--mother, father, daughter, son--who posed with their firearms of choice. Ommanney also found one woman with a pump shotgun for home

As the nation awaits Hillary Clinton´s decision of whether or not she will run for president in 2016, a cache of 7,500 pages of newly released documents from Bill Clinton´s years in the White House show some familiar political themes. One revelation is that Bill Clinton worried that a massive new healthcare scheme would cause Americans to lose their insurance. In 1993, the President allowed his wife, first lady Hillary Clinton, to become the face of an Obamacare-like takeover of the nation´s healthcare system. The plan was sarcastically dubbed Hillarycare. But as these internal documents show, in what is now a

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

WASHINGTON AND NEW YORK - In September 2001, as the U.S. reeled from the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Vladimir Putin supported Washington´s imminent invasion of Afghanistan in ways that would have been inconceivable during the Cold War. He agreed that U.S. planes carrying humanitarian aid could fly through Russian air space. He said the U.S. military could use airbases in former Soviet republics in Central Asia. And he ordered his generals to brief their U.S. counterparts on their own ill-fated 1980s occupation of Afghanistan. During Putin´s visit to President George W. Bush´s Texas ranch two

A new photo of a mysterious flying object over Kansas has been revealed. It appears to be the same aircraft as one that was snapped soaring over Texas last month. The exact identify of the aircraft remains a mystery, but rumours abound that it could be a secret jet. ´The photo is grainy because it was taken with a hand-held maxed-out 400mm telephoto lens through a cloud layer and then it was severely cropped to bring it up even close,´ says Jeff Templin, who took the photo on 16 April. ´There is no way to know the altitude and no way to judge its

Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

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

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
