George Soros said he thinks President Barack Obama is trying to divide the Republican Party and split off the Tea Party “extremists” — something that if successful, would restore the balance of the two-party system.
“I think Obama is trying to split the Republican Party between the Tea Party and the establishment,” the billionaire investor and self-described “bleeding heart liberal” told a group of reporters at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Jan. 24....
Umnnhh....yah...where have we heard that sorta rhetoric before?
[Karl Rove's American Crossroads, t]he people who brought us No Child Left Behind, Medicare Part D, TARP, the GM bailout, Harriet Miers, etc., etc., etc. are really hacked off that people have been rejecting them. In 2012, about the only successful Republican candidates were the ones who directly rejected the legacy of these people.
Yah, there's a two-party system in place. The Party of Government and the Party of Freedom.
Take your choice.
The Tea Partiers are foolish to believe they can work within the Republican Party, and the Republican Party are foolish to believe they can "keep in check" the Tea Partiers, especially on social issues. So the split within the Republican Party is NOT Obama's doing, but among those who differ regarding what is "true" conservatism.
So long as Dad29 and his ilk continue to support the Republican Party come election time (i.e. the "lesser of two evils" approach), they can scream bloody murder all they want "RINOS" and the "establishment". Become part of the solution, not part of the problem.
Furthermore, there is no two-party system in place called the Party of Government or the Party of Freedom. Democrats and Republicans each embrace those principles, but one's interpretation of those principles will vary.
