Noonan advice to GOP after loss
´Tea party style of rage is
not one that wins over converts ´

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 11/11/2012 2:42:17 PM

Last week’s presidential election left many Republicans looking for answers, having not only lost the White House, but by only by a small margin. And now that the dust has settled, it has given some the opportunity to figure out where things stand with the party, including Wall Street Journal columnist and former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan. In an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday, Noonan was asked if the Republican Party could find a way to appeal to Hispanic voters.

Comments:
How many Republicans does she really have contact with? Does she even know a conservative?

This stupid twit doesn´t know the difference between rage and desperation. I guess from her Beltway tower she sees only the stupidity of the simpletons in fly-over country. After all, who but the mindless simpletons who make up the Angry Mob would reject the more coherent view of the Republican establishment apparatchiks who know all, see all, and the proceed to lose all.

The fate of our nation depends now on the midterm elections and a turn around in the senate. If we are to make any real headway in avoiding the complete financial collapse and the accompanying civil unrest (war?) that will follow. I fear for my son´s future because of the cowardice of so many of the last three generations to make any real sacrifice. And I´m not sure that they will be any more ready in the next 24 months.

God Save America.

Sound fiscal principles sound pretty good to people with sound fiscal principles just as sound moral principles sound good to those who live by them. Whenever those principles are lived fully, they work. However, it enrages those devoid of principles and it their envy and rage that rings in Peggy´s ears.

It´s too bad that the hispanic voters don´t understand that by voting democrat, they are voting for the very policies that caused them, their parents, or grandparents to want to leave their home countries and come to America in the first place. The democrats are slowly destroying the opportunities that make the US a place worth immigrating to.

The republicans/conservatives have always been looked upon as being old fuddy duddy´s, square, not with it ... You get my point.

This is what needs to change, but without changing our message of self reliance, working hard, patriotism, etc.

In other words, we need to show that it´s cool to be conservative. I´m not sure how this can be done. I will leave that up to branding and marketing experts. Maybe the Republican Party should hire a marketing company.

They won´t be happy until the GOP elects a left wing Democrat as our Nominee. The cries that Mitt Romney was not moderate enough are actually kind of pathetic, and would be humorous if we were talking about something less important.

Peggy, shut the heck up. Just shut up. I do not care what you think, you ridiculous twit who slobbered over Obama four years ago. People like YOU have contributed to where this country is today. So you go on and go to your little cocktail parties and sigh about how ignorant all us peons in flyover country are, and bravely soldier on for the cause of mediocrity. And in 25 years, you look at where the country is then, and you look in the mirror, and you take pride in what you see, because YOU helped build it. (And by build, I mean destroy.) I can´t write more about what I think of you lest I be banned by our gracious hostess, you ridiculous twit. I repeat myself, but some things deserve emphasis.

What a twit. I´m not going to add my vote to people who vote 70% Hispanic and 93% Black. I´m going to ask 93% of the white population to vote Conservative and follow the voting traits of the racial party. Vote for your own. That seems to be what they are preaching in the Democrat Party.

Noonan speaks for the establishment Republicans in the Beltway and leadership committees across the country. They cannot stand the people who make up the Tea Party and they cannot stand conservatives. If maintaining their station in life means adopting the ideas and principles of the Democrats then they are happy to do it.

Listen to what they are saying. They are pushing to make changes only to get votes. In effect they are becoming exactly like the Democrats and using minorities to gain and stay in power.

Before determining what it is going to do or needs to do, the Republican party needs to determine who and what it is first. Unfortunately, the division in the Republican party is too deep and wide to bridge and bring back together just as the division in the US appears to be as well.

Tea Party rage? Noonan hasn´t seen anything yet. Evidence is massively piling up the Romney lost due to voter fraud. What is the Republican establishment doing? Nothing.

What is the Tea Party doing? Calling urgently for election fraud volunteers in WI, OH, PA, VA & FL. I would add CO to the list.

God Bless Allen West! He is the only Republican fighting this, but then the GOP tried to redistrict him out of his seat.

Sure, purge any principle that might ever irritate anyone. Erase every value and idea.

And then hope to be seen as nice people who should be voted into office.

I don´t see a future for either the GOP or the Tea Party. That is harsh, their doom is not my desire, only my expectation.

But they will not survive or thrive after a self inflicted lobotomy and castration.

The Republican party collected fewer votes in ´12 then in ´08, nominate a New England semi-RINO in ´16 and watch that number fall more. The Tea Party is the future of the Republicans or a third party. The Republican "establishment" is the problem, or is it us "fly-over" people who refuse to go along to get along?

The Tea Party begrudgingly got "some" credit for the historical GOP sweep in 2010. Two years later, it´s all that´s wrong with the Republicans and if only the Tea Party were shut up, the GOP would ride a cascade of success. The biggest concern the Tea Party had of Mitt Romney was his apparent waffling principles. But we were willing to overlook that in the hopes that he would defeat a Degenerate who has no principles except for looking out for Number Won. Now they are condemning us for losing the election? The Tea Party is the only remnant left in America that has a clear set of principles! How long do we listen to the rank and file GOP? When, just when is it time to form our own party? If we, as an independent party, stand for principles I think we would be amazed at the dichotomy of supporters we would have. Look - the same thing is happening in churches across the USA. When they water down their doctrine and allow the newcoming "experts" to dictate how things should be; when they try to be all things to all people - they reap the whirlwind -- they no longer stand for anything and prostitute themselves out to every stray and corrupt breeze that comes along. The Tea Party does not need to shrink and shrivel away, nor does it need to adapt itself to make it more palatable to others. We saw in 2010 what it can do. Stay the course, Tea Party!

Rage of the tea party? Where and when? Listening to old Peggy is like listening to Obama.....stuttering, uhing, uming until what she´s trying to say makes no sense. Go away, Peggy and Bill, etc. You have no idea what people like us are like. No idea at all. Dems and Republicans on the coasts and in DC are exactly the same. No thank you to any of them.

Noonan, Parker, Rove - begone.

We´ve lived life on the edge of a 51-49 majority and now we´re on the losing end.

There is no reason we should be relying on vote margins in the thousands or even hundreds but your ´Dem Lite´ approach has taken us there.

With all the ignorant citizens in this nation, they can be be forgiven for mistaking someone imitating a Democrat for the genuine article. But that doesn´t earn their vote.

Peggy Noonan is ultimately one of the elite establishment types. I´m just a Jewish woman, American who loves her country and also knows a few tea party types. Having attending three tea party meetings in my lifetime, I must say that they were the nicest most civilized concerned citizen I´ve ever met. There is more rage on the board of the average synagogue, because of differences of opinion than I saw at a tea party.

Who´s going to invite this old has-been to a cocktail party now? She spent the last 3 months or so shaking her head at how President Wonderbum had tossed away all his advantages and what a disappointment he´d turned out to be. That was when she thought the Republicans were winning. Now that she´s seen where the booze and the cozy treats are, she wants back at the Democrat table again, but why should they bother with her anymore? She abandoned Obama when she thought he was a loser; there are plenty of LOYAL journalists who can take her vacated place under the table licking up the crumbs.

Just as Noonan and the rest of the establishment RINO GOP created the false narrative--to cover for their repeated political failures--that Sarah Palin cost the republicans the White House last election, they are now going to try--to once again rewrite history--and blame this RINO disaster on the Tea Party. That´s funny considering the geniuses running Romney´s campaign wouldn´t even let anyone mention the name Tea Party let alone embrace them. That worked out great didn´t it Peggy?

A brilliant post 21. I´ll add that if a third party forms and starts to take off, quite a few of the old guard republicans will run out front and try to convince us they have been with us all along. Personal power is more important to them than pretty much anything.

It´s really getting tiresome to have all these supposed GOP talking heads suggesting that conservatives in this country need to flush their principles down the sewer to be co-mingled with the Progressive/Socialists simply to win elections. If that´s the price, it´s too high and I for one would rather stand for what is right and be forever out of power than sell out to the immoralists and progressive secuularists. The truth, moral character, integrity, and family values have absolutely no meaning to those people. They may be in charge, but they will forever be wrong.

Is this thread a good place to post that aside from Lucianne, I have nowhere to go for information that, once there, doesn´t sadden me or madden me. Noonan became famous by dismissing Reagan as an aged actor in an empty suit - how many remember that? (Her gratitude for a speech writing job - heh.)
Her empty-minded blather is blown up by the MSM because it always denigrates conservatism.

I am sick of reading our own blogs that are in the same reality-denying universe as the MSM, just coming at us from a different side. When I looked at RCP on the day before the election it was clear Romney wasn´t going to win (and I earlier predicted Romney would win Illinois in an optimistic burst of naivete.) Why then, were so many right-leaning blogs predicitng a Romney landslide? How are we well-served by such nonsense?

Jessie Jackson´s son gets a beer distributorship in Chicago after his father protests the company. Glen Beck is selling $100+ jeans and telling us it is part of some revolution. How do such people get so many followers that overlook the self-serving behavior?

Apparently the Jeremiah Wright style of rage, however, has won a lot of converts, one of whom was Ms Noonan in 2008. If there is any Tea Party Rage, it is because of the current policies that are leading to the decline of the US, not to progress as liberals like to pretend.

Moderates don´t win elections among either Dems or Reps. Perhaps the only exception was Clinton in ´96 but that was because (1) we ran a horrible candidate and (2) the economy was booming. Reps who win are conservatives and Dems who win are liberals.

As Truman said, when urged to move to the center: "Give people a choice between a republican and a republican, and they´ll pick the republican every time." We run as center-left, we love to the true lefties.

The tea party was not involved Noonan. They were not on the stage during Romney´s nomination process...not one. Romney should have included the tea party, Ron Paul, Palin, Coeburn, DeMint, Franklin Graham...by the way Peg I have talked to loads of people..no one.. not one believes Romney lost. Noonan & Krystol are what´s wrong with the party..not the tea party. Does she remember the 2010 & Walker elections??? She needs to get out DC more often.

Noonan and Diane Sawyer are like 2 peas in a pod. You can tell by listening to either for 10 seconds that they know... they just know that their fecal material has no odor whatsoever.

The wimpy Republicans are not about to start winning future elections by becoming the Democrat Lite Party, neither are they going to win future elections by going along with liberal Democrat amnesty programs for illegal aliens that are bound to generate millions of new liberal Democrat voters in a few years. The highly partisan liberal Democrats would not be proposing those "path to citizenship" amnesty programs if they thought that more then a very small percentage of legalized aliens would ever vote for conservative Republicans.

All evidence to the contrary. 2010 went extremely well and Romney wasn´t a tea party candidate.

2014 will give the tea party their first opportunity to campaign against D senators in red states who have so far been held unaccountable for their votes on Obamacare and the government stimulus. Party on.

The photograph occupied one of the most prominent spots in the White House this winter, drawing double takes: President Barack Obama, papers in hand, sitting on an Oval Office couch flanked by his three top West Wing advisers on national security.The notable part: All three were women.For a president long dogged by criticism that his White House is a boys club, the image placed at the entrance off the West Wing driveway subtly attempted to reshape the notion.

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn´t have “any damn facts.” “You´re telling me what people have told you? You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.

Thousands of preschoolers getting

Even preschoolers are getting suspended from U.S. public schools -- and they´re disproportionately black, a trend that continues up through the later grades.Data to be released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm finds that black children represent about 18 percent of children enrolled in preschool programs in schools, but almost half of the students suspended more than once. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at least one preschool child.Advocates have long said that get-tough suspension and arrest policies in schools have contributed to a "school-to-prison" pipeline that snags minority students, but much of the

What if economic growth is no

For decades, rapid economic growth has been the norm for developed countries. An educated workforce, a large population boom, major technological advances, and abundant fossil fuels were the key components of growth, generating substantial and broadly distributed increases in standards of living in many countries. We have grown so used to such growth that we inevitably view it as a panacea for a host of economic ills, whether it´s a deep recession or income inequality. We now understand, however, that the postwar growth paradigm is not environmentally sustainable. We also know that the shared prosperity it once delivered is itself

Bill Elwell doesn´t want any more customers, but they just keep coming."Is McDonald´s closed today?" he likes to grunt to those lined up outside his tiny burger stand in an industrial pocket of the San Fernando Valley. "Why is everyone here? Go down the street!" Elwell is 87 and cranky, and folks can´t seem to get enough of him. It´s been 49 years since Elwell took to the grill of his 10-by-20-foot burger stand on Oxnard Street where Van Nuys meets Sherman Oaks. He once flipped a burger from grill to floor to shush a customer complaining about too much mayonnaise. And

President Barack Obama says he´s hearing from business owners across the country who are voluntarily paying their workers more than the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour. In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama says those actions show that change comes to Washington, not from it.Congressional Republicans are resisting Obama´s pleas to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour. Obama recorded the address in Washington before leaving Friday for a weekend in Florida.In the Republican address, Ohio Sen.

The Obama administration is dropping some new hints about how it has moved money around to fund Obamacare without Congress — but not nearly enough to put the controversy to rest.Forced to reveal more details under a provision tucked in this year’s bipartisan budget deal, the Department of Health and Human Services declared Friday how it used Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’s authority to move about $1.6 billion in departmental funds around last year — the Cabinet secretary’s version of looking for change under the couch cushions and hitting the jackpot. But HHS didn’t say exactly how it spent the money, and

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

London - A remarkable piece of high-tech data detective work has provided what looks to be the missing clue to the tragic fate of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, an expert said Monday.

Former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news this week publicizing a new book about women’s rights. But, as is often the case with Carter, he drew more interest for comments he made about Israel and its supporters. When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor. I think the problem was that– that in dealing

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

Some of our most famous athletes, like LeBron James, and artists, like the singer Janelle Monae, came from struggling families like mine, as do many business leaders -- like Howard Schultz. He’s the head of a company called Starbucks, which many of you may have heard of. When Mr. Schultz was a boy his father lost his job, leaving their family destitute. But Mr. Schultz worked hard.

First Lady Michelle Obama’s kids finally hit the wall on their whirlwind visit to China, showing signs they’ve nearly reached their limit tagging along with mom as she visits site after site on what’s billed as a “person-to-person” tour. Accompanied by Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, the first lady on Monday toured Xi’an, an ancient city in the ancestral province of Chinese President Xi Jinping. They inspected the city’s 600-year-old wall, a day after touring the Great Wall near Beijing. Photos show Sasha looking like she’d rather be back home with her pals than hitting the

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act. While the country remains divided over whether he acted like a traitor or a statesman, all would have to agree

Hunter Walker, Business Insider’s politics editor, published the announcement on Monday, after teasing the news on Twitter by announcing that “something wonderful is about to happen.” The folks at Business Insider are clearly aware of the built-in entertainment value of hiring the scandalized politician, who is best known for sending an explicit photo of himself to an online mistress on Twitter -- and initially denying the photo was his.
