Is A Republican Civil War Needed?And Are Conservatives Taking Back Our Country?

The media narrative every time Republicans lose is not that Republicans lose, but that conservatives lose. Without fail, every election cycle, made worse by John McCain being the 2008 nominee, is that conservatives cannot win. In 2008, the narrative was that conservatives cannot even make it out of the GOP primary.
As often happens, the media narrative when repeated enough starts being treated as fact, particularly among Republican establishment types who crave acceptance in the media. Their thinking is pretty grade school: “Reporter says conservatives can’t win. Therefore I will not be conservative. They will look at me and say ‘winner.’”
Sadly, this attitude has infected the great bulk of the Republican establishment. The only way to change this is for conservatives to win. But this year, unlike most other years, there is a very real problem. The Republican Establishment is out to beat conservatives to make sure once and for all that the media narrative is established fact.
Look at the pattern, led by Rob Jesmer, the Executive Director of the NRSC, who has rallied Senate Republicans to oppose conservatives nationwide:
In Pennsylvania, the GOP went with Arlen Specter over Pat Toomey.
In Florida, it is Crist over Rubio.
In Connecticut, the GOP has stayed neutral as to the moderates in the race, but made clear the conservative is a loser.
In California, it is Fiorina over DeVore.
Across the board, the GOP Establishment is staying neutral between moderates and endorsing moderates over conservatives. In some cases, it is endorsing liberals over conservatives.
The goal is an intentionally orchestrated campaign to defeat conservatives in the GOP primaries and thereby have the establishment take full credit for what we all know is going to be a good year for the GOP in 2010.
However, conservatives have a real opportunity to fight back. From Florida to California to Pennsylvania and more, if conservatives win the primaries the Republican Establishment will be marginalized and totally unable to take credit for the victories. In what will be a good year for Republicans next year, those conservatives will most likely win the general election too. The media and establishment narrative will be crushed.
So yes, there is a very necessary brewing Republican civil war. This should be a banner election year for conservatives. Sadly, it is the GOP Establishment trying to prevent that from happening.
We must fight back. We know conservatives are the base of the party. We know independents are moving our way. We know conservatives can win. We know from Maine to Florida to California to Alaska a pro-entrepreneurial “leave me the hell alone” message can sell. And yet?
The Republican Establishment in charge now is the same Establishment that was there in 2006. It never got replaced. For example, Mitch McConnell has led us from 55 Senate seats to 40 and his record as NRSC Chairman was equally craptacular. Now this man is both trying to beat conservatives in Republican primaries and oppose Obamacare with cute little messaging amendments. These people are only winners because we let them. Not any more.
Conservatives can win if we fight back. Who is with me?


  1. Chris, I support your effort to get more Tea Party Conservatives to run against Democrats. New polls show that more people support the Tea Partiers then the GOP candidates. I think it would be great to repeat what you did in the NY-23 where people that think the way you think got rid of a moderate Republican and put in a Rush Limbaugh/Glenn Beck Tea Party candidate.

    That worked out great.

  2. Bruce A Moderate Republican is a Democrat and Moderates stand for NOTHING!

    Conservative and Independants are the KEY to Republicans chance for Victories in 2010! If the Republicans continue to Spend and APPEASE Democrats ,Republican Party is in Trouble!

    Winning back SEATS in 2010 Election should be a cake walk.with this current Administration and there Agendas,however,not taking Tea Baggers and Town Hall meetings Seriously will bring on the SAME results as 2008! Citizens are Tired of Politicans who do not CARE what they the Citizens think. Some Politicans beleive BIG Brother Type Government is needed to take care of Citizens and if Republican Party does NOT act STRONGLY they once again could be DOOMED and a Third Party a VERY Serious Possibility!

    Grass Root Citizens are FED up with WHAT is and has been going on and I dont believe they are going to take it ANYMORE. If nothing else this Administration did WAKE up VOTERS and that may be there Legecey!

  3. BWAAAAAHAHAHA ... Bruce, NY-23 is a small price to pay to make the GOP listen up, straighten up, and face the facts. Time they started backing true conservatives, not RINO's. It's a lesson that you Hypocrats should learn from. Obummer, Pelosi and Reid are SO far to the left that it freaks people out, and thus the pendulum swings back to conservatives. But you Hypocrats will keep your head in the sand, ignoring/poo-pooing the polls, until it is too late. And we'll be laughing our asses off at you dipshits.

  4. Hey, John, I'm all behind the Tea Party challenging the GOP candidates.

    Keep up the good work.

  5. They need to promote their FISCAL conservatism and let the social issues be dictated by their district. If the social issues are the province of the state under the 10th amendment, then the candidate should reflect the opinion of their state or district on those issues. However, the one thing they should be promoting is fiscal conservatism without fail.

    Here is an example of what I've heard over and over again. "To be honest, my issues with the GOP are not their fiscal conservatism.. I agee with less government and lower taxes However, I don't have a problem with paying higher taxes if the situation calls for it, but you better convince me. :-) If i remember my high school American History correctly, isn't that the GOP used to be about? What they've morphed in to with the their social policies/values is what scares the hell out of me."

    We should not force on a district a candidate who disagrees with the populace on the social issues. Issues which should not be addressed in the federal government but at the state level anyway.

  6. We conservatives are taking back the country and we will put it back on course. I'm glad I have a front row seat for the Democratic Parties implosion. It looks like the Hindu's were right about you liberals as it looks like karma is coming your way. There will be a mashing of teeth when the liberals world comes crashing down to reality and "cosmic justice" rights their wrongs. Is that hippy enough for ya?

  7. Chris, you just have the scenario screwed up.

    Scenario 1: There are Tea Party Candidates, Republican candidates and Democratic party candidates. The Tea party and GOP split the conservative vote. Democrat wins.

    Scenario 2: Tea Party candidate goes against Democratic candidate. Independents break for Democrats because the Tea Party is way too far right for independents. Democrat wins.

    Either way. Go for it!

  8. Bruce, the ONLY reason NY-23 was lost was because the Republican party backed their RINO to the hilt until the last minute. By the time Scuzzy dropped out, most absentee ballots were already in and many people didn't know that the Republican party had thrown in behind Hoffman.

    So we'll see if the Republican party got the message. If not, they and the Hypocrats can split the idiot vote and Conservatives will win. As for Independents going for Democrats... have you got your head so far up your ass that you don't read the polls?! NOBODY likes the Hypocrats. Obummer, Reid and Pelosi have seen to that with their ultra-radical views; those would be the same views that you and a huge minority of people in this country hold.

  9. And it is up to the GOP if they want us back. The Tea Party is also Democrat. If the GOP gets conservative then they will get all the spoiles. It is actually a smart move to gain Democrats into the Republican party through a third party. When the Tea Party bails a race and gives it to the Republican the Democrats will be loosing it.

  10. I'm not familiar with this poll, it might be totally skewed on the conservative side. I prefer Rasmussen, as their numbers have been and are right on with how VOTERS feel, but I thought this was hilarious nonetheless. Make sure you read the last paragraph, where 44% want Bush back! BWAAAAAHAHAHAHA

    Obama's December Standing
    For the second month in a row we find Barack Obama's national approval rating at 49%, with 47% of voters disapproving of him. He has the support of 83% of Democrats, 46% of independents, and 11% of Republicans. None of those numbers have really changed from our November poll.

    Support for Obama on health care has hit another new low with just 39% of voters now expressing approval of his health care plans and 52% opposed. 90% of respondents who said they were opposed to Obama's plan said it was because it involved the government too much in health care with just 6% saying their opposition was because it didn't create enough government involvement. This would seem to refute other recent polling that suggested a large amount of opposition to Obama on health care was coming from the left.

    Obama gets better marks on Afghanistan with 47% of voters saying they support his approach there to 37% who are opposed. Not surprisingly he gets more support from Republicans on this issue than health care (30% compared to 5%) and less from Democrats (63% compared to 69%). His Afghanistan stance isn't doing anything to help his overall standing with GOP voters though- even among those who say they agree with him on this issue his approval rating is only 13%.

    Perhaps the greatest measure of Obama's declining support is that just 50% of voters now say they prefer having him as President to George W. Bush, with 44% saying they'd rather have his predecessor. Given the horrendous approval ratings Bush showed during his final term that's somewhat of a surprise and an indication that voters are increasingly placing the blame on Obama for the country's difficulties instead of giving him space because of the tough situation he inherited. The closeness in the Obama/Bush numbers also has implications for the 2010 elections. Using the Bush card may not be particularly effective for Democrats anymore, which is good news generally for Republicans and especially ones like Rob Portman who are running for office and have close ties to the former President.

  11. I can't believe that 44% of American voters want Bush back. And only 47% of Americans approve of Obama. I do have to say Obama makes Bush look better every day.

  12. There were about 25% of people already in favor of impeaching Obama, but I didn't post that part. But can you believe it, 25% already?! It would be interesting to see what Bush was at when he left office, I know his approval was at like 22%, but I don't know if the call to impeach him would be anywhere near 25%. I bet Brucetard has that number readily available ... well, at least he will make one up lickety-split, just like every other number he ever posted! Whaddya say Epic Failk, got a % of people calling for impeachment of Bush at the end of his term?

  13. John, as I remember, the number was closing in on 50% that were in favor of impeaching Bush, which is higher than the number that were in favor of impeaching Clinton, even after he was impeached in the House.

    Funny, John, you say that but you don't provide the link, like you always ask for from me.

  14. Bruce - You really are retarded, aren't you? The link is right there, in the article about three comments back, at the very top, VERY PROMINENT, you fucking MORON. And yet ... and yet ... and YET ... in the very comment that YOU make, you have NO link! Wow, you are a DUMBASS to RULE THEM ALL!! BWAAAAAAHAHAHAHA

    FUCK YOU BRUCE. I ALWAYS provide links, and if I don't all you have to do is ASK. You NEVER provide links, even when ASKED.


    BWAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA ... you're right Bruce, that IS Funny!!

  15. Wow, just LOOK at these DIRTY FUCKING HYPOCRATS!! Even the HuffPo is getting in on the act of calling these liars libertard Hypocrats out!!

    "New Dems" In Congress Paid $100K Each To Weaken Financial Reform

    If money is the mother milk of politics, then big bucks from the banks and financial industry are souring financial reform legislation being debated in the House of Representatives this week. A new analysis by Consumer Watchdog shows just how rotten the Capitol Hill dairy is.

    Thirty-four members of the U.S. House of Representatives that offered floor amendments to weaken consumer protections in the House financial reform package received $3.8 million in campaign contributions from the financial sector in 2009, an average of $111,000 each. "New Democrats," who delayed consideration of the bill last night until their demands on amendments were met, raised $6.5 million from firms in the financial sector.

    The financial sector gave a total of $28 million to all members of the House of Representatives this year.

    What's at stake is weakening the Consumer Financial Protection Agency, the top priority for financial industry lobbyists. U.S. Chamber of Commerce executive David Hirschmann said, "We'll spend whatever it takes," upon the launch of a multi-million dollar financial industry campaign against the consumer protection agency in September.

    Another top priority is for the banking industry to prohibit states from enacting strong consumer protection laws against financial abuses when federal rules do not provide consumers with enough protection. According to news reports Wednesday night, the amendment forced unspecified changes to the financial reform bill, presumably allowing some additional preemption of state authority. The New Democrat coalition held up consideration of the financial reform bill until changes were made. The list of proposed amendments that would have weakened the Consumer Financial Protection Agency can be found here.

    Sponsors of the original amendment to override state consumer protections received $1.4 million in campaign contributions from companies in the financial sector in 2009, and $11.4 million over the course of their careers. Primary sponsor, Illinois Representative Melissa Bean, has received $393,000 from the financial sector, 50% of all the money she raised in 2009. The other sponsors were Reps. Adler (D-NJ), Castle (R-DE), Crowley (D-NY), Herseth Sandlin (D-SD), Lance (R-NJ) and Royce (R-CA). Adler, Bean and Crowley are members of the New Democrat coalition.

    Bean represents the worst of the financial industry's Democratic representatives. She's also led a separate drive to preempt state insurance regulations. When half your money comes from one industry, it's sure you're going to represent that industry more than your constituents.

    Bean and her fellow representatives may be calling themselves "New Democrats," but there's nothing new about taking money to help a wealthy interest group. That type of corruption is older than Congress. Consumer Watchdog's analysis shows "Banking Democrats" would be a far more appropriate label for this crowd.

  16. Oh my: GOP within one on generic ballot

    They’re already ahead of the Democrats on Gallup’s generic ballot of registered voters, but as James Earl Jones famously said, this is CNN. From a sample of more than 1,000 adults:

    According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey released Thursday, 40 percent of people questioned say the U.S. would be better off if Democrats ran Congress while 39 percent feel things would be better if Republicans took charge on Capitol Hill. The 1-point margin is a statistical tie.

    Support for Democrats is down from a 10-point advantage in August and a 25-point margin in January.

    Remember, the generic ballot among registered voters on election day 1994 was dead even at 46. No wonder the Dems want to boost the debt ceiling by a few trillion now so that they won’t have to do it next year: The ice could conceivably be so thin politically for them by then that any jolt will send them crashing through.

  17. Hoping for war for conservatives.

    Running under the Tea Party brand may be better in congressional races than being a Republican.

    In a three-way Generic Ballot test, the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds Democrats attracting 36% of the vote. The Tea Party candidate picks up 23%, and Republicans finish third at 18%. Another 22% are undecided.

  18. I don't know anyone that is happy with Obama or the democrats any more. I find it hard to believe that 47% of people still like him. Most of the people I know that voted for him wish they had Bush back. My son told me about this web and he is right it is a great blog. Just don't let these Democrats get to you. I did notice how few Democrats voicing their opinions. Even they find it hard to keep backing the Democratic party.

  19. Bruce; Democrats get 36% of Voters Polled and that is GOOD why? The Votes Dem/Libs REALLY need and they are Abandoning them in a Hurry are the Independants WHO have seen the ERRORS of their Ways! Polls, Data, Figures, Facts as we have seen RECENTLY can be FUDGED and Minipulated to SUIT ones NEEDS!

  20. Al, because 36 is more than 18, idiot. I hope Republicans and the Tea Party duke it out for conservative votes. Once people get a load of the conservatives running for office, they will see the light and come back to the Democratic party.

    They may not be happy with everything President Obama is doing, but Tea baggers are insane and apparently Republicans aren't conservative enough for the Tea Baggers.

  21. Al, you should watch this video. Even Stephen Colbert understands how idiotic the Tea Party is and its platform of Conservative purity.

  22. Bruce All I was trying to say was that 36% aint more than Republicans 18%,Tea Baggers 23% and part of the 22% Undicided but APPARENENTLY with your Head up Your ASS you could not ADD up the NUMBERS on your OWN which DOES seem to RUN DEEP with Libs and that Includes your Politicans and Scientist which on OCCASSION are hard to APART!
    Bruce if you think Majority of Tea Baggers and Independants are coming back to Libs what ever YOUR smoking PASS it AROUND!

  23. BWAAAAHAHAHA... Bruce, you're quoting a Rasmussen poll so I guess we can put to bed your bullshit claim that they are biased? Thanks Bruce, that was classy of you to use their poll and admit how full of shit you are.

    Al, Bruce thinks there's going to be four tickets on the ballot. He's a total f**king moron. I laugh and laugh and laugh at him, and am constantly reminded of the saying "figures lie and liars figure". Bruce is just practicing the Hypocrat ostrich move. Putting his big dumb fat-faced head in the sand and ignoring the coming ass-kicking that the Democrats will experience. His comments right now will make it all that more hilarious and sweet when the DimocRATS are swept from power.

    Bruce, were you able to find my link dipshit?! Or do I have to post it again for your feeble mind to comprehend?



Please keep it clean and nice. Thank you for taking the time to post you thought. It means a lot to me that you do this.
