“…“To those people who are pursuing purity, you’ll become a club not a party,” Graham told POLITICO in the Capitol Wednesday. “Those people who are trying to embrace conservatism in a thoughtful way that fits the region and the state and the district are going to do well. Conservativism is an asset. Blind ideology is not.”…”
First things first. Is it possible some of the “war” between moderate and conservative Republicans be a mirror of the friendly battle between South Carolina Senators Lindsey Graham and Jim DeMint. There appears to be a major difference of opinion between the two men, with DeMint becoming something of a far right activist, and Lindsey taking a stand that is a proven winner, standing on Reagan’s political principles.
The Pink Flamingo is highlighting what is apparently an attack of “hate” leveled against Lindsey Graham because he dared to behave like an adult. I am highlighting the coordinated attack against Lindsey to prove just how abjectly deranged and full of abject hate the far far far far far right has become. The fact is the far far far far far right’s attack on Lindsey is now so obvious, even liberals are picking up on it. It doesn’t matter how much they lie about what he is actually doing. They simply lie. (Take Cap/Trade)Read More
My grandfather Froehlich was a cattleman all of his life. He had the largest independent dairy in south Florida, milking several hundred cows on a 24 hour basis. Having spent all of his life around cows, he had a tendency to equate and philosophize about life via cows. He also had a rather cynical view of humanity, likening them to cows.
He would have a very dismal view of today’s “conservative base”, considering them nothing but cattle.
What happens when people who are NOT Republican acquire enough power to manipulate themselves into the position where they can call the shots?
Okay, they are smart. They are a heck of a lot smarter than “we are”. If we had half their cunning, duplicitous brains, we would know how to manipulate them and not the other way around.
Republicans who allow it are just downright pathetic. That’s what is going on in the GOP today. A minority group of conservatives have terrorized our more spineless Republican officials into thinking THEY ARE THE BASE, when nothing could be farther from the truth.
Why should people who have no relationship with a political party be the ones who call the shots?
They are abusive bullies who have come up with a formula to terrorize our elected officials. When good men like Lindsey stand up to them, well – you can see the results. They lie, denigrate, abuse, and manipulate.
Golly, they are good conservatives!
The far right now thinks Newt Gingrich is not good enough for them. They’ve also turned on Mike Huckabee, but then they never did like Huck. This whole mess is because the NY GOP is absolutely incompetent.Read More
