    If i understand the OP correctly, the GOP needs to grow a pair and have people like Boehner and McConnel in leadership positions and run candidates like McCain and Romney to save itself.:wink:

    NO! You're misunderstanding... McCain and McConnell are part of the problem too.

    No that's not what I'm saying. What I'm saying is the republicans are making the same mistake democrats made. Democrats assumed the country was more liberal than it was, and allowed fringe liberal groups like the ACLU to start calling the shots. They payed a price politically. By allowing fringe groups like the John Birch Society, and the NRA, to call the shots in the Republican Party history tells us they will also pay the price politically because the country isn't nearly as conservative as they think.

    The thing is those fringe groups are the Republican base and there is no way they can separate from each other.

    I'm not so sure. I know a lot of republicans who care more about the fiscal health of the nation than about social issues. I think this is evident by the selection of Mitt Romney as their candidate rather than Ron Paul, Michelle Bachman, or one of the others. I believe the republican base is center right. Their problem is republican Senators and Congressmen don't want to be in a primary.

    If the GOP base were center right, we wouldn't be seeing these hard tacks to the right during primaries.

    Is Obama center lefts? Becasue he said acted like he was in the primaries - he lied. We need to Right the ship (our country) which means a more "Right" candidate then just center Right, RINO.

    A RINO is not getting elected to be our next POTUS. We need a true conservative.

    Obama is center left.

    The next fiscally conservative pub that gets elected will be the first since Eisenhower.

    I don't care if we get a less than conservative POTUS as long as Obama-scam is ended for good. Reagan spend money, but he spent money in a way that jump started our economy and gave long lasting prosperity for millions of Americans in the process... save the air-traffic controllers.

    By the time pubs are in position to eliminate OCare, its tennets will be so popular they won't dare repeal it.

    The more we know about it the less popular it's becoming.

    If you think people are willingly going to vote for preexisting conditions again, you're delusional.

    Reagan spent a lot more money than Obama has so far, adjusted for population and inflation. Are you saying that you want Obama to spend more?

    There was a lot more government hiring under Reagan than under Obama so far, are you saying that you want more government hiring?

    Wrong! 1 trillion is far, far less that 7 trillion and counting.
