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

Rushlimbaugh.com, by Rush Limbaugh

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 2/5/2013 5:25:07 PM

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.

#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:

"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.

Chris Christie: Republicans don´t get anywhere

Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., turned down the opportunity to bash the mainstream media on Friday, when interviewed by Fox News host Megyn Kelly. Kelly pointed out, during a part of the interview aired on Friday, that there was an unprecedented volume of negative media coverage surrounding the bridge controversy in New Jersey. "Has this changed your view of the mainstream media?" she asked. "No, I´ve always had the same view," Christie said, pointing out that anyone can be the "flavor of the month" in the media. "But I´ve always said to my folks in the party, we don´t get anywhere complaining about it either,"

Republican pundit Charles Krauthammer said that when Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie embraced President Barack Obama after Hurricane Sandy a week before the 2012 presidential election, he was essentially giving Obama a lap dance. “I think many Republicans are extremely upset with what was described in the press as giving Obama a bear hug,” Krauthammer said on Sunday in a debate with Obama strategist David Plouffe, according to Politico. “I saw it slightly differently, I thought it was more of like a lap dance. Not a phrase I would use on television, since the image is too disturbing.” Krauthammer did use

In a way it´s the oddest bit of ObamaCare propaganda we´ve seen so far. "This Is What an #ACASurge Looks Like" was the title of a Saturday post on the White House Blog by senior communications adviser Tara McGuinness. "The line started forming at 5 a.m. in front of an enrollment center in Miami," McGuinness boasts. "The final deadline to get covered in 2014 is in just two days, and Americans are literally lining up at grassroots events across the country to make sure they´re covered. This is what momentum looks like." To McGuinness´s credit, she does mean "literally" literally. The post

Suddenly ObamaCare is a roaring success, happy days are here again and liberals are euphoric, or claim to be. There are more than a few reasons to doubt this new fairy tale, not least the behavior of Senate Democrats running for re-election this year. In the Rose Garden Tuesday, President Obama reported that 7.1 million people had signed up so far, confirming a Monday night White House news leak. "That doesn´t mean all our health-care problems have been solved forever," he conceded with customary modesty. The government appears to have tapped heretofore-unknown reserves of bureaucratic efficiency by releasing numbers timed to

Health Care: The administration is crowing that 7 million people filled out applications for ObamaCare plans — the original enrollment target that once seemed impossible to hit. Don´t pop the champagne bottles just yet. Given the news about surging enrollment and rising poll numbers, maybe Nancy Pelosi was right that Democrats will all benefit in the fall from ObamaCare. Except that once you strip out the hyperbole, little remains to celebrate. • Seven million enrollees? That figure fails to discount those who haven´t paid their premiums. Among the eight states releasing this number, about one in five "enrollees," on average, haven´t paid.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep.

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal.
