Conservatives lambast Romney, vow to take over Republican Party
« on: November 08, 2012, 01:35:13 pm »
Conservative leaders on Wednesday lashed out at Mitt Romney, saying his attempts to paint himself as a centrist and hide his principles cost him the presidency.

They vowed to wage a war to put the Tea Party in charge of the Republican Party by the time it nominates its next presidential candidate.

“The battle to take over the Republican Party begins today and the failed Republican leadership should resign,” said Richard Viguerie, a top activist and chairman of ConservativeHQ.com.

He said the lesson on Romney’s loss to President Obama on Tuesday is that the GOP must “never again” nominate a “a big government established conservative for president.”

Jenny Beth Martin of Tea Party Patriots said Romney failed to make the kind of strong case for conservatism that would have won the election.

She described Romney as a “weak, moderate candidate hand-picked by the country club elite Republican establishment.”

“They didn’t see a clear distinction so they went with what they know,” she said of voters.

Well we all knew this was going to happen.   Keep going to the right into irrelevancy!

Yeah because it was centrists like Todd Akin, Richard Mourdock, George Allen, Joe Walsh and Allen West who lost...

I guess they'll truly never learn from their mistakes. Oh well.

RIght and up until they are less Republican party and more the fascist party, please, become irrelevant and let someone like the Libertarians or the Green party to come in to take over. Would be nice to see a fresh face on the party block.

But you can never get rid of democrats, they've been around since there were political parties!

Though the tea party motivation has dropped and mostly dropped off, so we'll probably see Republicans move towards the center.
The material needs a defender more than the spiritual. If there is a higher power, it can defend itself from the material. Thus denotes 'higher power'.

Santorum, Bachman, and Perry ran in the primaries. People - actual Republicans - vote in primaries. If "actual Republicans" wanted an actual  conservative, they had options. The fact is, Romney came out of primary season the winner.

By all means, Republicans, jump off the deep end. It'll make things so much easier for the left.

I disagree. Libertarians are a danger to their country, Fascists are a threat to all the countries around them.

The libertarians are worse.

How are libertarians worse?

I disagree with libertarians on most issues, but I disagree with conservatives on every issue.

Libertarians are in favor of ending the war on drugs, leaving marriage equality and abortion up to the states, scaling back the military, ending America's interventionist foreign policy, and protecting civil liberties and privacy rights.

I don't see conservatives supporting any of those things.

You make a convincing argument. I take it back; neo-cons are the worst.

The libertarians are worse.

It's all very well to be able to marry, but if you're unemployed and starving it won't help you much, will it?

leaving marriage equality and abortion up to the states,

Ie, banning them...

I would feel bad for most of the Republicans if the party chose to revolve around the Tea Party axis.

Good luck there Tea Party.  Your support is from Faux Noise which is the media arm of the very party you're attempting to take over.  You don't have the money to take it over.

This was utterly predictable.
That said, I've stopped trying to anticipate what people around here want a while ago, I've found it makes things smoother.

Many Libertarians don't simply believe same-sex marriage and abortion rights should be left up to the states, they also actively support those measures.

Not enough according to them.
I'd be more sympathetic if people here didn't act like they knew what they were saying when they were saying something very much wrong.
