RedState´s Erick Erickson Chides
Conservatives for becoming
´professional victims,outrage pimps´

Mediaite, by Meenal Vamburkar

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 1/22/2013 1:03:44 PM

Congratulating President Obama on his second inauguration, RedState’s Erick Erickson penned a piece on Tuesday that aimed criticism toward his fellow conservatives. His message: enough with the perpetual outrage. The president’s policies are destructive to the economy, Erickson asserted, but “I do not think the President means to do this maliciously. I do not think he is treasonous. I do not hate him. I am not outraged by it.” The outrage can instead be directed toward Republicans: While Obama is doing what he set out to do,

Comments:
Meet the new Joe Scarborough, Colin Powell..take your pick. Erickson is receiving huzzahs from liberals all over twitter for this "reasonable"piece.

Not one click to Red State ever again.

Not outraged, huh?

Ok. I wont be outraged when you finally lose your freedom.

Nope. Not one bit. In fact I will be silent. Because that´s the way you wanted it. You and your ilk worked SO HARD to silence me...It WORKED!

So when the REAL tyrants show up for their piece of flesh from you, I won´t say a word. Not of outrage, not of protest. Because you wanted it.

He has shown signs of this type of vitriol against Repubs. for a long time. No more RedState for me, either. Erik has turned into another jerk who needs publicity. With friends like him, you don´t need enemies!!!

Think a moment before you get all offended! Stop and think about it. The Republicans actually fight for nothing. They surrender and run at the slightest provocation. Instead of whining and crying, why aren´t conservatives (so-called) in Congress on the attack?

No too long ago the Republicans had BOTH houses of Congress and the White House, and they did nothing to build prosperity and freedom.

The man is telling the truth. Our so-called conservative leaders are horrible.

I have no problem with what he wrote. I agree with 90%. We aren´t putting forward ideas.

We need to focus on convincing voters that our policies will allow people to make the most of their lives and not be dependent on the rising and falling fortunes of Washington, D.C.

How can you disagree with that.

Many comments are mute testament to the adage; "Those the Gods would destroy, they first drive mad." Indeed. Erickson is a conservative, not
a ´republican´. Embarassing that many still don´t know the difference.

I didn´t read the article, but from the opening paragraph, I disagree with the part about it not being malicious and treasonous. If his skin was white, he would have been exposed by now, but instead he is protected by his groupies formerly known as the msm - and aided by chumps like this.

I do agree the Republicans should take plenty of the blame because they all want to play the game instead of really doing the hard work they were sent to do.

Like many such things, it´s what Erickson doesn´t say.

Reagan was our model of a "happy warrior", but he also expressed his share of outrage. We need to present our ideas for change, but we must also express outrage over the circumstances that demand it. We must remind the electorate that it is broke, and it is time to fix it.

The link is below to the entire article. Much of what he says is true, but to begin with the assertion that “I do not think the President means to do this maliciously. I do not think he is treasonous" damages his credibility. How can you not be outraged at what 0bama is doing to this country?? Granted, we should be angry at the Republicans, but there is something inherently wrong with someone who isn´t outraged at 0bama and what he is doing to destroy us.

I grow weary at the common defense of Democrats being that they just want whats best for people. This is a load of malarkey. If Democrats wanted the best for everyone, not only would they not be Democrats, but they would work in the private sector. The logic goes like this: We Conservatives are not allowed to complain about Obama care because Democrats just want everyone insured. Who cares if it destroys the country, right?

In one sense, Erickson is right. GOP candidates have to start offering conservatism as a positive alternative, and one that can appeal to people who aren´t already dyed-in-the-wool conservatives. Can´t argue with that.

Problem is, right now the GOP is basically an opposition party, and the focus of GOP members in the house needs to be on stopping Obama´s agenda from going through. The only way to do that is to go negative. That´s just the way it is.

“I do not think the President means to do this maliciously." Oh, yes he does. He does everything maliciously, with malice aforethought!!

"I do not think he is treasonous." Oh, yes he is - treasonous and traitorous. In another era he would have been impeached.

"I do not hate him." Oh, but I do, viscerally. His policies are not only destructive but HE is a clear and present danger himself.

"I am not outraged by it.” Oh, but Erik, you should be outraged like many of us on L.com are. What´s happened to you?

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

Sharyl Attkisson hasn’t landed yet, but there’s every reason to suppose she’s not going to finish her career in local news in Duluth. For starters, Atkinson is an accomplished reporter. But she’s also taken one of the surefire moves to help ensure her relevance – not to mention potential TV and book contracts – by criticizing the very media establishment in which she spent her career. It’s an increasingly well-traveled path: Over the course of the past two decades, a handful of journalists have left mainstream media jobs while decrying what they saw as an inherent bias in their own industry.

As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

5 Reasons Why Republicans

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft
