There are people who actively think about their actions and consciously decide that a liberal Republican president is worse for the country than a liberal Democrat president. Do I agree with that? Not necessarily. But yelling at them for not toeing the party line makes somebody
sound like a baby.
If Republicans win elections with liberal candidates, the party sees that as the strategy that wins.
What is more important to politicians, to win elections for themselves or to do the right thing for the country? If it were doing the right thing for the country, we wouldn't be anywhere near the situation in which we find ourselves.
I haven't seen anyone bring up Congressman Paul here on TFF for the last month, you excluded. Why? He's not even running for president. He's not on the ballot anywhere, not even in his congressional district. Why does it drive you so nuts? Why?
Problem is, with an Obama victory there won't be a next time. If Obama wins in Nov. it's over.
If Obama wins in 2008, it's over.
If Kerry wins in 2004, it's over.
If Gore wins in 2000, it's over.
If Clinton wins in 1996, it's over.
If Clinton wins in 1992, it's over.
If Dukakis wins in 1988, it's over.
The Republicans have been saying this forever. Right or wrong, the boy has cried wolf a few too many times to be taken seriously.
