The Republican Party and The RINO's Plan To Destory It

Republican Battle for Party Chief Pits Leaders, Base for COMPLETE ARTICLE

Republican leaders’ efforts to select a new national party chairman are stirring concerns among a vital constituency: Republican voters.

Rank-and-file Republicans are telling their leaders they want more ethnic, gender and age diversity in a party that is dominated by white males. They also want party leaders to cooperate with President Barack Obama, according to surveys.

Wild Thing's comment..........

This article ABOVE is a very long article, it is one page at the website but small print so it would be way to long to post here and I think we all need to read it if you have the time. According to this article, the “base” wants the party to be even more liberal. It says the base wants leaders who will cooperate with Obama. Sounds like more of those “reach across the aisle” types. No thanks. This article above is obviously intended to push rather than report. I am glad John sent it to me because we need to see the propaganda and some truth thown in too is being written and how these lefties in our party are working to destroy us.....the conservatives.

I have to say that is it a known fact that there have been people on the LEFT that have registered in the Republican Party for one purpose only and that is to destroy it. To bring it down and make it as liberal as possible.

Two years ago when the election began for President I was shocked at how a few, only a few, of the so called conservative bloggers were putting down good conservative people in our party, people that have worked hard back when Reagan ran for President. I was in a group of bloggers that I am no longer a part of and the whole reason I no longer participate is because I will not be associating with groups of any kind that want to mock and bash conservatives that have been heroes to we conservatives and what has set the RNC apart from the DNC.

One of the reasons I am a dittohead a Rush listener is because he has been consistent and never wavered in his being politically conservative. He thinks like I do on so many things.

I am going to post Rush's take on here about this article. Rush spent most of his third hour discussing it on Friday, and I want to show you a few things he said about the article above. I will post the link but I am not sure if it will work if a person is not a member of his Rush 24/7 it might not show up.


Liberals Plan to Separate Elected Republicans from Their Voters

I think what's coming is going to be a concerted effort by the Obama administration to separate our elected officials from us on the Republican side. Colin Powell is working on that. Colin Powell is already out there saying Republicans should ignore Limbaugh, meaning conservatives, plus me. McCain, New York Times story today, "The Maverick is Back." And what does that mean? It means he's back criticizing the Republican Party, and they're celebrating it. So I think what's going to happen, Obama had a meeting with congressional leaders today, and it's a wild guess, but my assumption is that there's going to be an attempt made to separate elected Republicans in the House and Senate from their voters.

The effort's going to be, "Don't listen to what your voter says. It's not the way this is going to get done. We're not going to get things done up here unless we work together my way." That's what Obama is going to say.

Now, I will say this. John Boehner came out of that meeting today with the president, and he said some pretty good things. He said, "We've gotta remember here that we're not spending our money. This is not ours to spend, this is our kids'." Right now, just the cost -- forget the deficits that have already built up to a trillion to two trillion dollars, annual deficits -- just the cost of this stimulus, as it stands now, is about $6,700 per family if they came and collected it from us. At some point, we are going to pay that, somehow, some way, by hook or by crook, with increase in fees, increase in taxes, we're going to pay this, and it's not going to stop at $6,700 a family. And Boehner is pointing out that Republicans, Mitch McConnell, Jeff Sessions, there's some people up there that are willing to oppose this and stand up to it. And there's some who aren't. But it's going to require a strong backbone and the guys that oppose are going to have to know they're supported for doing so. I'm talking about elected officials.

Republican Party is made up of a bunch of elites, moderate Rockefeller types. And the dirty little secret is that they resent being in the same party with a bunch of people who are pro-life. Plus these guys, these Rockefeller liberal Republican guys, wives are always nagging 'em about abortion, to get the Republican Party to get rid of it 'cause.

A Bloomberg story out just this afternoon by Heidi Przybyla: "Republican Battle for Party Chairman Pits Leaders Against Base."

Now, wait. It's not what you think. "Republican leaders' efforts to select a new national party chairman are stirring concerns among a vital constituency: Republican voters." Tell me if you believe this. "Rank-and-file..." This is what it says here. "Rank-and-file Republicans are telling their leaders they want more ethnic, gender and age diversity in a party that is dominated by white males. They also want party leaders to cooperate with President Barack Obama, according to surveys." Now, let me continue. "After losing the White House and 28 seats in Congress last year, some party leaders still aren't hearing the message from voters who are urging them to claw their way back to power by promoting minorities and striking a less partisan tone, said Rich Bond, a former Republican National Committee chairman. 'We need...'"

This is Rich Bond who used to run the party. "'We need a great deal more tolerance for the other guy's point of view,' Bond said. 'Not everybody comes from the same constituency as a majority-white homogenous district in the South where all people care about is keeping their guns and taxes.'" Rich Bond, yeah, he ran the party back during Bush 1. He was President 41. I met him in Houston. Now, look, I asked you, if you believe this. This is not the first... Well, I asked you if you believe that rank-and-file Republicans -- those of you in this audience are rank-and-file Republicans -- if you are telling Republican leaders that you want more cooperation with Obama, that you want "more ethnic, gender, and age diversity in the party leadership," do you believe this?

I'll tell you why I believe it. I do believe that somebody can go take a poll of a sample of Republican voters and get this result. What I really believe. know it's Bloomberg, I know it's the media, but Rich Bond, a former Republican National Committee chairman, "We need a great deal more tolerance for the other guy's point of view," meaning liberals. We need to be more tolerant of them. He's saying we need to be less tolerant of our own voters.

Now, Rich Bond sounds exactly like Howard Dean when he says this.

Now, I believe that Rich Bond said it, and I believe he thinks it, and I think a lot of the other elite, country club, blue-blood... You know, the old stereotype of the rich Republican fat cat smoking a cigar? Those people are largely Democrats now. But the Republicans still have their elite, and Rich Bond is typified it. I know this from personal experience 'cause I encountered it. I've told you the story. Big, big dinner party, powerful, powerful people from New York, it was out in the Hamptons. And after dinner out on the deck of this stylish seaside mansion (a very powerful, a name you would know) fundraiser and donor for the Republican Party, came up and tapped me on the back and said, "What are you going to do about all these religious people in our party?"

"What am I going to do?"

"Yeah, they're killing us! This abortion, it's killing us."

This is back in the nineties. This is the early nineties, and they laughed. "I'm just kidding you. I'm just kidding you. You're the guy that can talk to them and you're going to have to get them off of this abortion business or our party is going to die," and you'd have to say the party is dead and these guys are running it, are they not?

I have read a little bit more of this Bloomberg story, and it gets worse.

Rich Bond, a former Republican National Committee chairman, said, "We need a great deal more tolerance for the other guy's point of view," meaning Democrats and liberals, "Not everybody comes from the same constituency as a majority-white homogenous district in the South where all people care about is keeping their guns and taxes." You know, I said it sounds like Howard Dean. It sounds like Obama and his bitter clinger comment it. It actually sounds more like Barack Obama. So the Republican Party, which swept to landslide elections with Republican voters from the south would just as soon now be rid of you, and the reason why is because they have no Republicans in the House from the northeast.

read this further. "The hard line taken by the leaders has already cost the party." They're saying there has been a conservative hard line taken by the party. I would like to see it, 'cause it is nonexistent. There has not been a conservative hard line taken by the party. Anyway, "The hard line taken by the leaders has already cost the party, which has become increasingly rural and Southern. With the defeat last year of Representative Chris Shays in Connecticut, Republicans no longer hold any House seats in socially moderate New England. The party also lost three House seats in New York, one in New Jersey--" Yeah, you know who they're losing 'em to? Conservative Democrats! They're losing these seats to Democrats who are more conservative than these Republicans. Nothing against Chris Shays, but it was about time. He was nothing but a RINO, Republican in name only. I tell you what, what we're learning here -- and we don't even need to learn it, we know it -- with these guys, it's party first. Ideology is second, third, fourth, fifth, maybe not even that high.

This party, whoever's running this party is so out of it. And Colin Powell says, "You gotta stop listening to Rush Limbaugh." Trust me, General Powell, they have years ago, and now they're just being honest about it. "We don't like these supporters we have in the south, we don't like them, they're too white, too homogenous, all they care about is guns and taxes." (phew) If they succeed in this, if they alienate 25 or 30 million voters -- one thing I don't believe in this survey is I do believe that a certain segment of Republican voters wants to work with Obama, again, from the religious influence here. But that represents a cave-in, at least to most conservatives. But regardless, we'll take it for what it is at face value, 'cause it is what it is. It just finally illustrates I have been right about this all along in talking about this party and where it's headed and what they're thinking at the leadership level of it. Don't ask me what we do about it yet, folks. They're imploding, they're doing it on their own. They're driving you out of it. All you can do is at the grassroots take it over. That's had to have been done a number of times, by the way. It's what Reagan had to do.

You wouldn't believe the unsung heroes from 1976 on that were working the grassroots, people like Paul Weyrich and Phyllis Schlafly, you would not believe all the work that was going on without any fanfare, to take over the grassroots so that local elections and primary elections and congressional and Senate races were won by conservative candidates.

I know that. I'll hold my end up, but the Drive-Bys are going to be presenting an entirely different picture. It's going to be an epic battle, as Saddam Hussein said. Saddam Hussein Obama said, "This is going to be the mother of all battles." Have we heard anything about George Obama and the hut? It's amazing.


.......Thank you John for sending this article to me.

Think about how our once MIGHTY GOP failed US:
In 2001, W was in the Oval Office, and the GOP controlled the majority with VP Cheney breaking all ties in the US Senate... And the elephants rolled over on US to be kinder and gentler to the liberals and the hyenas wound up biting them!
Elephants are dead and RINOS have replaced them. Watch Glenn Beck at 5 p.m. on FOX and it's all there!

Nothing wrong with more gender and ethnicity in the party leadership. I'd like to see Michael Steel, JC Watts, and Bobby Jindal in party leadership. I'd also like to see Sarah Palin and our own Wild Thing in party leadership. We need some older Conservatives of the caliber of Ronald Reagan in leadership too. That's the kind of diversity I'm talking about.

Posted by: BobF at January 24, 2009 09:57 AM

The Republican Party should be renamed the Compromise Party. It's leadership has been weak and has caved into the welfare state mentality that government should run our daily lives.

Limbaugh is right that there is a need for a grassroots movement to rebuild the GOP. We need a lot more Sarah Palins to take the leadership role and no more Trent Lott types.

I saw a graph recently that showed there are now more people in America working for government than in manufacturing.

Dear GOP:

I don't vote for/support "Democrat Lite".

Posted by: Rick at January 24, 2009 11:38 AM

Who and where are all these Republicans that want to support obama ? The leaders of the Republican Party are sheep and are clueless and we are leaderless.

They want to follow and be spoon fed by the democrats their daily bowl of gruel. They want the principles of Reagan, to be dead, because Reagan scared the hell out of them, he lead the way. Reagan led and wouldn't back down. These meely mouthed whusses couldn't get out of their own way let alone lead someone to the mens room for a pee.

Even Newt has signed onto this 'hope obama succeeds' crap. I don't, I don't like anything he stands for, he is a communist and wants to control every aspect of our lives. To hell with that.

Darth, yes and the elephants better roll back over to the right direction.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 24, 2009 05:56 PM

BobF., I agree, there is nothing wrong with more gender and ethnicity in the party.

I just pray they stop thinknig of giving up on what the party has stood for, and that is what they want, that will make us no different then the dems.

They have got to stop giving us rino's no matter what their gender and ethnicity.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 24, 2009 06:01 PM

Tom, oh yes, that is just what it has become, the "Compromise Party" , and it has got to stop or where do we go and people like Sarah etc.

Wow that is interesting about the graph you saw.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 24, 2009 06:04 PM

Rick I agree, this will have been the last time I vote if they don't stop handing us rino's.

I don't mind working hard to get conservatives elected but we need them to stand up and want it too.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 24, 2009 06:06 PM

Mark, DITTO all you said and well said about Reagan too.

I emailed Rush and told him I liked his Last Man standing thing, but he needed to know there were a lot of Last Men Standing, ( my husband and the men and women at my blog). I know he realizes that but there are many of us that are not jumping on the band wagon of Obama.

Yes Newt sure has been a disappointment. He has not realized he has lost his credibility by what he has said and done.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 24, 2009 06:10 PM

Despite the last two elections and misusing the power that they had for the previous six years, Republicans haven't learned a thing. Abandoning conservative values, caving to Democrats, and acting like Democrats-Lite is a sure way to Party suicide. I'm afraid things have to get much worse, and they will, with Der Feurer Obama and Fourth Reich Field Marshal's Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid before enough real Americans wake up and take their country back if it already isn't too late.

The Republicans have always had the Taft wing of the party that does not believe in the United Stares. It formed after the Civil War when there were job opotunaties for the Carpet baggers to act as business agents looting what was left of the South.

Some people say they are the country club or big business wing of the Republican party but whatever they are we can not win if we allow them to direct the party. The party in Connecticut has done that and been reduced to one liberal Governor acting as tax collector for a rapidly failing state.

All future party primaries should be closed to people who have not been registered as Republicans for at least 60 days.
