Jeff Lord smacks a neo-con around the block with history.
...No conservative in his right mind goes onto a notoriously
liberal television show of a notoriously liberal network, sits next
to John Podesta and promptly turns on his own team. Which is
exactly what you did when you went on Meet the Press and
slammed Rush Limbaugh....Your previous attacks on South Carolina's Senator Jim DeMint and
Governor Sarah Palin are typical of how moderate Republicans play
...this is the kind of nonsense that was preached all the
way back in 1950 by New York Governor Tom Dewey in his Princeton
lectures. Dewey, as you recall, lectured Republicans about the
"vociferous few" and the "impractical theorists" -- meaning the
Reaganesque-Rush Limbaugh-style conservatives of the day -- in the
GOP who were intent on driving out all the GOP moderates and
liberals and into the arms of Democrats. Concluded Dewey: "The
results would be neatly arranged, too. The Republicans would lose
every election and the Democrats would win." Dewey said all of
this, of course, following his own two defeats against FDR and
Truman. In both of which elections he ran as the Great Moderate
Hope -- and got clobbered.
...When you note in your Time piece that "we still design
campaigns to prevail in the America of 25 years ago" you are
incorrect. Every single campaign beginning with the Bush 41
re-election campaign of 1992 - 20 years ago - has run head-long
from Ronald Reagan and conservatism. And the results are,
accordingly, dismal. Say again, dismal....
And a warning to the rest of the (R) Quislings (or Benedict Arnolds, if you prefer that):
...saying, in essence, that
Republicans should campaign for the dissolution of marriage and get
on with supporting the legalization of polygamy, polyamory, bigamy
etc. (the inevitable legal consequences of gay marriage, as Justice
Scalia has noted) is only the modern version of Dewey or Ford
saying conservatives of the day were too extreme and out of
Once again, we wish to thank the Farrow-Moderates for handing Tammy Baldwin the Senate seat. /sarcasm

"...No conservative in his right mind goes onto a notoriously liberal television show of a notoriously liberal network, sits next to John Podesta and promptly turns on his own team."
So that means in the future, as a "true conservative", you will only support or vote for "your own team". Romney doesn't count.
