    ... 1. We are not “The Establishment” or “RINO’s”, and you are not “The Base”. We are THE Republican Party founded in 1854. The Tea Party is a MOVEMENT that began inside our party sometime between 2007-2009, and if anyone must be referred to as a “RINO”, it’s the members of this movement, because they seemingly have a strong dislike for most of what occurs within our party. In 1854, the Whigs that were against slavery didn’t solve the problem by calling the others WINO’s, they courageously founded the Republican Party. That is what a Republican does. We don’t run...
  • Jules Witcover: Sen. Ted Cruz could use a history lesson (Yeah, it's what you think it is)

    The Oklahoman ^ | November 4, 2014 | Jules Witcover
    Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, in again throwing previous Republican presidential nominees Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney under the bus of his own White House ambitions, needs to brush up on his political history. The freshman senator took occasion on CNN the other day to dismiss growing talk of a 2016 presidential bid of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush by tossing Bush under the wheels along with that trio of losing party standard-bearers, as a means of advancing his own Oval Office fantasies. After insisting he is “a fan” of the son of the 41st president and brother...

    "...Take note: Instead of working to get out the vote, educate voters, and advance Republican and conservative principles in key states, and fire up the base, the establishment has already thrown in the towel. They are trying to shape a narrative about why their candidates lost instead of making sure their candidates win. Their narrative is that tea partiers are… what were those words you used, David? Oh yes. Tea partiers are naïve, sophomoric, and stupid, and this trifecta of character flaws will cause us to behave like petulant children."
  • Newt Gingrich will not be the Republican nominee — even if it means a brokered convention

    Silver doesn’t quite go so far as to say that it makes a brokered convention or a late-breaking establishment candidate likely, but I’m willing to go that far. There’s just no way the Republican establishment lets Gingrich become their nominee. As Andrew Sullivan pointed out today, you’re already seeing the anti-Gingrich mobilization among conservative thought leaders: Here’s George Will, Charles Krauthammer, David Brooks, Ross Douthat, Tom Coburn and Ann Coulter, just for starters. There’s this Politico story about all the Washington Republicans who hate Gingrich. Now, I think it’s more likely that this mobilization leads to a Romney win then...
  • Palin: “there’s room for more”

    Palin: “there’s room for more” (audio) September 2, 2011 By O.Kay Henderson 4 Comments As former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin walked in the front door of The Machine Shed restaurant in Urbandale, Iowa, this evening, a reporter asked Palin what she thought about the current field of GOP presidential candidates. “Happy with the field of candidates. I always think that there’s room for more, though, because spirited debate and more competition will allow an even better discourse and a more rigorous discourse that the public deserves,” Palin said.

    UPI ^ | 2009-03-28
    WASHINGTON, March 28 (UPI) -- U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., in an interview published Saturday, said President Barack Obama needs to learn how to be effectively bipartisan. In a session with editors and reporters at The Washington Times, McCain said the Obama administration has reached out to him only once since the inauguration. On that occasion, a lawyer discussed the possible closing of the Guantanamo Bay detention center. Obama defeated McCain 53 percent to 46 percent in the November presidential election, with most swing states going into the Democratic column. "There are things that, statements that then-candidate Obama made during...
