Bad Advice and Rebuking the Tea Party (a.k.a GOP Voters)
Remember Mitch Daniels the "Great"? Pundits are back telling us how he would have been a savior; not telling how exactly; just that he would have been just what the doctor ordered because we'll never know the truth on just how great or how not great, Mitch would have been.
George Will- "On Feb. 11, 2011, the person who should have been the Republican nominee laconically warned conservatives about a prerequisite for persuading people to make painful adjustments to a rickety entitlement state. Said Indiana's Gov. Mitch Daniels
"A more affirmative, 'better angels' approach to voters is really less an aesthetic than a practical one. With apologies for the banality, I submit that, as we ask Americans to join us on such a boldly different course, it would help if they liked us, just a bit."
Romney was a diligent warrior. Next time, Republicans need a more likable one."
Bill Kristol says it is time to Tax the Rich
Peggy Noonan- “It can move forward things in a good way. I think the tea party is going to
have to look at itself,” Noonan added. “It’s been so helpful to the Republican
Party in the past. It saved it by not going third party in 2010, helping the
Republicans sweep the House. But the tea party style of rage is not one that
wins over converts and makes people lean towards them and say, ‘I want to listen
to you.’ I think a friendly persuasion has to begin now from the Republican
Party to people of the United States.”
The hits just keep on coming as the GOP talkers try to do everything they can to steer the entire party away from conservativism and toward extinction. The "angry old white man party" has become a completely acceptable description according to all major media networks and publications and many GOP talkers. The GOP has expressed distaste with the voters that it actually has left.
Meanwhile John Boehner sits comfortably in the Speaker's Chair as he tells his caucus to fall in line.
