Flood the GOP!!


#21

I have nothing directly against Jeb Bush except his squandering of a chance to clean up the horrible state of the CP$ and Foster Care sytems in the state of Florida. As the govenor, he was in the correct position to force a revamp of probably the most horribly broken system in the US.

The other aspect is what I would call Bush fatigue. Are people ready to put another Bush and/or Clinton back into the White House?


#22

The only thing I’ve heard about Jeb is that he favors the same amnesty policys as GWB.
However unlike GWB he doesnt want any drilling of oil on the Florida coast.


#23

It’s time to update this thread, moderators. Mike Duncan is, for example, no longer the RNC Chairman.


#24

I agree. I left this party because of the out of touchness of the party, can it get me back?


#25

I left the Republican party because the Republican went to the left of me.


#26

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Also, the corruption in the party has a worse stench then President Chicago Way’s!


#27

Steele needs to be terminated from his role in the GOP. We need a new face and someone who is more optimistic about our party. He is giving the GOP a worse name these days.


#28

I just watched a very good clip today on Fox regarding the amount of cash both the RNC and DNC spend on wining & dining the rich to get contributions. The DNC has raised more money thus far. I know many folks want Michael Steele gone, and if the majority of Republicans want him out than so be it. However, I will give Steele credit for NJ and Mass. Republican victories (<?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags” /><st1:place w:st=“on”><st1:State w:st=“on”>Virginia</st1:State></st1:place> was going to happen regardless), and he has stepped up the recruitment of younger people through the internet and canvassing (my kids and some of their friends know who Michael Steele is – They didn’t know who the prior chairman was). He also has taken a minimal effort to fight perception of the Republican Party. I just watched a Democratic strategist on Fox (named Susan) state the Republican Party is the party of Wall Street, but the facts are:

  • Obama took almost a million dollars from Goldman Sachs.
  • The Democrats have received 4.5 million from Wall Street while the Republicans only received 1.5 million. (Bill O’Reilly)
  • While Obama is saying Republican Party leaders are having hushed meetings with Wall Streets Execs, Obama had four closed door meetings with the head of Goldman Sachs prior to his new reform push.

Perception is key here, because the crats are trying to paint Republicans as “party of no” fat cats and the Tea Party movement as a misguided and manipulated angry group that should be thanking Obama (along with the dual marketing message the Tea Partiers are racists).

This all leads to elections, with May bringing two in <st1:State w:st=“on”>Hawaii</st1:State> and <st1:place w:st=“on”><st1:State w:st=“on”>Pennsylvania</st1:State></st1:place> (Bob Murtha). If we lose these, then people may want to consider the following:

  • If Republicans to not make significant gains in the house and senate, we will be subject to permanent long binding legislation that will alter the freedoms we enjoy.

  • If the Tea Party and the Republican Party do not maintain a loose affiliation and belief system, it will hurt us in the November elections. (Some on both sides of the aisle speak of a third party)

  • If you castigate and boot out the RNC chairman now, the Democrats will capitalize and defame the party, and it will hurt us in the November elections (and I wager every crat strategist will be on TV asking why would the GOP would push out a man who helped deliver Ted Kennedy’s seat – you can imagine the reasons they conjure up).

  • Even with the Democrats on the defensive, this is an uphill battle. The left in this country have majority control of TV, the internet and special interest groups.

Newt Gingrich endorses Dede Scozzafava in NY-23 House race
By Mark Weiner / The Post-Standard
October 16, 2009, 2:01PM

Newt Gingrich, the leader of the “Republican Revolution,” was House Speaker from 1995 to 1999. Washington – In a major coup for her campaign, Republican Dede Scozzafava today will pick up the endorsement of Newt Gingrich, one of the nation’s leading conservative figures and the architect of the “Republican Revolution” in the mid-1990s.

I liked Newt up until this. I believe he’s just trying to keep the party united, but he’s got to know where to draw the line.

On to the topic at hand, I’ll write again. Though I’m sure they will file it with all the others I’ve sent.

Poor Dede, my spell check wants to change her name to Scarface:rofl:


#31

I have nothing personally against Jeb Bush but I do not think he would be a good candidate for president.


#32

Its funny how the OP called for Santorum and Newt back in 2007, and now nobody wants any part of them now that they are running.

Looks like there were some Fred Thompson supporters here in 2007 too, he would have been the best, though I was proud to support the underfunded Huckabee. Fred and Rudy paid the price for expecting things would come to them and thinking they wouldn’t have to campaign.


#33

Why ? I think he did good things with Florida. ok, I recognize, he is moderate, but I think he would be a good POTUS (but no better then his brother).

Rand Paul POTUS 2016!


#36

Don’t spam threads, if you have so little interest in your own link that you have nothing to say regarding the content of your own link then what makes you think anyone else would want to see it?


#37

I thought we had moderators to handle this type of thing. Does this mean…no way…congratulations. You were promoted!

I hate to state the obvious, but *Rand Paul POTUS 2016 *is a comment made relating to the video.

In all seriousness, though, he and I have been on the same forum as members and moderators for over ten years. We are still there, but he has also gone on to another one and I have gone to this one. Every now and then I will post on the one he is on and he will post here.

But for someone to show up occasionally and when they do, to be talked down to and lashed out at in this manner, it is similar to the welcome threads in which people make one post and are chased off. It shouldn’t be a wonder why some people don’t stick around this forum.


#38

Good video.


#39

In that this was a resurrected thread anyway, and the initial subject matter is passé, the Rand Paul insert has no interruption . But as long as the thread itself is here, I think we can restructure the question.
Flood the GOP-initially calls and Emails. Now with conservative, Tea Party criteria. My thought friends is lets start grass roots. Find the conservative base, in your hometown,flood your liberal newspapers with letters to the editor and flood the forums, with clear concise ideates, stand up and shout down the liberal socialist who confronts you. Br active in your communities. It must start now, not when I get the chance. If one does not have the commitment, one loses. that simple.

We have better. We have the best. We have Trump.

Either Trump or Hillary will be the next president. If Trump is not nominated, then Hillary will be the next president. That’s our choice and it’s our only choice.

Santorum had no chance whatsoever and his ego made him run anyway. Newt is smart enough to stand on the sidelines.

We have the RONALD REAGAN of the 21st Century. His name is Donald Trump.
