‘Suicide Conservatives’
New York Times, by Charles M. Blow

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 2/9/2013 12:17:00 AM

There used to be a political truism: Democrats fall in love, while Republicans fall in line. That’s no longer true. Not in this moment. Democrats have learned to fall in love and fall in line. Republicans are just falling apart. Last week, the opening salvos were launched in a very public and very nasty civil war between establishment Republicans and Tea Party supporters when it was reported that Karl Rove was backing a new group, the Conservative Victory Project, to counter the Tea Party’s selection of loopy congressional candidates who lose in general elections. The Tea Party was having none

Comments:
I just love it when a liberal black and still on the dRATS plantation tells me, a conservative Hispanic GOP member that we need moderates [RINOs]. And, without naming the RINO, he says a "senior" GOP calls US "‘Suicide Conservatives’. He defines US as "we would rather lose elections than win seats with moderates."

It´s truly time for the Tea Party to put those old RINOs out to pasture in 2014 and 2016.

I think he´s right.

There are things we are going to have to compromise on, and quite frankly, I would rather compromise on social issues than on fiscal ones.

Immigration is something where we as conservatives ARE NOT going to get everything we want. We have 12 million people that we CANNOT realisitcally deport on force compliance on because "WE" have been part of the problem by electing leaders who would not nip this problem in the bud. This situation is what it is, now we can either make it work FOR us, or make it work against us.

The borders MUST be secure before the end of this process, the process time must be clearly defined and it must be followed through, but waiting to address this problem in a way where we can work it to benefit conservatives is not an option we can take if we want to win...and I think we need decide whether or not we want to win.

That said, we have to support our candidates 100% especially the new ones. I can get behind Rubio, Jindal...and that woman senator from New Hampshire...Kelly Ayotte...I like her.

McCain, Rove and their ilk, are done for me. They won´t go easy...but they will go if we decide they are done. We can afford to get rid of them, and we should.

Liberals are in lockstep, aren´t they? The true battles of political principle are among conservatives. It is because we have principles but sometimes I do wish we could be more cooperative.

Look the hardcore left wing Bush hating, oli hating, SUV hating, gun hating, rich hating wing of the Democrat party took over the party. Now it´s time for the hardcore Bush loving, oil loving, SUV loving, rich and poor loving gun loving Constitution loving wing of the Republican Party take it over.

Blow overlooks the fact that everyone in the conservative spectrum still has a common enemy to unite against at some point. The liberals are in lock step because they as afraid of the Obama machine as anyone.

One of the number one rights the founders gave us was the ability to openly question the government. Try that in an open forum on Obama and see how many death threats you get.

On the other hand you have tons of liberals rooting for the cop killer in LA.

"Loopy"? "Loopy"? You have Biden, Pelosi and Obama - poster people for Loopyness - not to mention media cheerleaders from Loopyland like Maddow and Mathews, and you call Tea Party candidates "loopy"? The tragedy is how many in the GOP agree with the loopy NYT (the City Hall of Loopyville) about this.

Blow only knows what he is used to and familiar with in and around the democrat hierarchy (loopy people). He attempts to project his feelings onto republicans.

Blow completely ignores Ted Cruz. Senator Cruz beat Rove´s boy, Dewhurst, in our primary despite Dewhurst throwing every trick and accusation in the book at Ted Cruz. The TEA Party candidate beat down the establishment candidate, in a major way.

Senator Ted Cruz is an excellent addition to our US Senate. Too bad Chuck Blow is too clueless to understand what happened in Texas.

Tea party type people have principles by which we live. Compromising and making concessions on those principles destroys what we stand for and destroys what made this country great. The Bible speaks of a singleness of heart - as in opposition to the ´´forked tongue´´ mentality. If we are to have any stability in our nation, we must take a stand. We are, as it is written, wrestling against spiritual wickedness in high places. Maintaining our foundations is essential to the nation´s very existence. We must abandon the shifting sands of political compromise and choose to stand on the solid rock.

I will not forget how we came to have Senator Menendez.

His opponent was Tom Kean, Jr.

Mark Levin decided Kean wasn´t pure enough and ranted and raved against Kean non stop.

Kean showed up late to a Newark fundraiser where VP Cheney was the featured host.

This was a high crime and misdemeanor that sent Levin off on his talibanish act.

So we have Menendez. The senate turned over to the dems and we are now allowing a loudmouth to enhance his ratings at the expense of America.

It is a shame that "moderate" republicans (if you have any historical knowledge, you realize these are just left-wing liberals putting their feet on the path the present day dems have been walking since the 60´s)have no common sense. If you look at the liberal policies these moderates are willing to compromise on, embrace actually, you realize that in a very short period of time, they become HUGE fiscal liabilities. But let´s not make that argument.
As of November, 2012, I came to realize that right now, there is NO political party that represents my views. And compromise on social and economic issues has led us to, and over, the fiscal cliff.

We have a two party system. Only a complete idiot would throw his vote away on a third party candidate, although I am too well acquainted with souls who voted for Ross Perot.

I don´t believe campaign machine superiority matters. It doesn´t take a genius to find out when election day is, who is running, and where you vote.

People who sit on their hands - in some cases, because one candidate is not of their particular religious persuasion- are a disgrace and an abomination. Two party systems make it simple: figure out which one of two candidates comes closest to your views and vote for him. I am embarrassed for us.

#12 -- and a lot of Establishment RINO Republicans bashed Sharron Angle, who DID have a real chance of beating Dingy Harry.

If you´ll remember, the GOP Governor candidate handily beat Dingy Harry´s offspring. And the kid knew Daddy Dingy was in trouble so much that he only campaigned using his first name!

This game goes both ways. There are a lot of "establishment" candidates that ran for Senate last time that should have won, but they didn´t. And I´m betting they got a lot of tea party voters.

But hey, if we´re looking to the New York Times for advice, well, it´s kinda like a sheep asking a wolf what he´d like for lunch.

Two contrasting and interesting posts.
#13. ´No political party represents my (conservative) views´ and
#14.´We have a two party system´.
Since its creation, the GOP has always been secular, progressive and corporatist at its core, having nothing to do w/principled conservatism. Never; despite pious platitudes floated every election year. This reality should be as self evident as 2+2=4. The reason nothing changes in DC, except the weather, is that there is no core difference between parties. None. The debate is over which can deliver big government more efficiently. Sadly many fervently believe otherwise and remain in thrall to their delusions and fantasies.

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

GM to seek court protection

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

Peshawar , Pakistan — The Pakistani Taliban said Wednesday that they were ending a six-week-old ceasefire but would continue peace talks with the Pakistani government.

Court Deportations Drop
43 Percent in Last Five Years

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

Sonoma, Calif. – A woman is facing a possible fine after federal officials say they found a knife inside an enchilada in her bag during security screening at a Northern California airport. Transportation Security Administration spokesman Nico Melendez says the 8 and a-half inch long blade was found Monday at the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport. The passenger, who has not been identified, said she made the enchilada over the weekend, and didn´t know how the knife got into the bag.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
