I suport the Club for Growth. Specter was a traitor and just not very swift in general. We are a better party without so many “nice old men”.
Club for growth wears on most rinos.Fixed
Yeah...NO one likes low taxes or limited power in government...
Amerika, what were you thinking?
The only Republicans complaining are the RINOs. But their whining is a good thing, as it makes them easier to find and target for electoral abortion.
Regardless what anyone thinks about the Club for Growth - they are a pro-fiscal conservative group (something that the RINOs claim to be) so precisely what is the problem?
Either RINOs aren't really "fiscal conservatives" (like they also aren't "social conservatives")-- or they are liberal, in which case, they belong to the DemocRAT Party.
End of subject - good bye!
Specter is scum. I used to contribute to Club for Growth until Steve Moore started writing pro-illegal immigration editorials in the WSJ.
No, Mr. LaTourette, it is the ineptitude of your type that has hurt the GOP brand. For goodness sakes, if we can't even agree that smart economic policies and limited government are worthy causes, then conservatives and moderates will never agree on anything. What the CFG champions is hardly controversial if you are an American that believes in the free market system that made this country great. But now people like that are extremists, apparently.
Proud member. Good riddance to bad repubs. If we had ANYTHING to do with Specter becoming the (har har,) junior dem on all his committees, well that is just icing.
Economic issues are never what the GOP loses on. It's really secondary issues like stem-cell research, Terri Schiavo, teaching creationism, and being painted as poor stewards of the environment that sink the GOP.
Yes, there are a few loons that get elected to the local school board then try and teach the book of Genesis in high school science class. That should not be what defines the GOP and those nuts should be repudiated.
Isn’t laTourette a syndrome?
The Congressman obviously fails to understand why the Dems' numbers increased, and it has nothing to do with the CFG. Why would conservatives want to support tax-and-spend Republicans?
Between Bush and McLame agreeing with the 'Rats who needs enemies. The big tent RINOs doom the GOP and the economy. They deserve to be fired. Socialism fails every time it's tried. If you don't believe in the free market and small govenment then you are a Democrat. End of discussion.
More like how the GOP lost the will to fight and rolled over to line their pockets like Democrats do.
Thing is, the CFG does not even address social issues like abortion, guns, marriage, etc., which are supposedly the issues on which Republicans are “out of touch with voters” on.
Technically, a “moderate” could be liberal to his heart’s content on social issues and still win the CFG’s endorsement.
My point is that if a Republican can’t be principled on issues like spending and the growth of government, then what could he possibly be principled about? There’s nothing left.
“Economic issues are never what the GOP loses on.”
WoW... Ever hear the phrase, “It’s the economy, stupid?”
