This has gotten ridiculous, and downright ugly. 

Ronald Reagan would never approve of the crap being dished out by the establishment Republicans, using the media and dirty tricks against conservatives.

Cannibals in GOP Establishment Employ Tactics of the Left

We have witnessed something very disturbing this week. The Republican establishment which fought Ronald Reagan in the 1970s and which continues to fight the grassroots Tea Party movement today has adopted the tactics of the left in using the media and the politics of personal destruction to attack an opponent.

We will look back on this week and realize that something changed. I have given numerous interviews wherein I espoused the benefits of thorough vetting during aggressive contested primary elections, but this week’s tactics aren’t what I meant. Those who claim allegiance to Ronald Reagan’s 11th Commandment should stop and think about where we are today. Ronald Reagan and Barry Goldwater, the fathers of the modern conservative movement, would be ashamed of us in this primary.

Let me make clear that I have no problem with the routine rough and tumble of a heated campaign. As I said at the first Tea Party convention two years ago, I am in favor of contested primaries and healthy, pointed debate. They help focus candidates and the electorate. I have fought in tough and heated contested primaries myself. But what we have seen in Florida this week is beyond the pale. It was unprecedented in GOP primaries. I’ve seen it before – heck, I lived it before – but not in a GOP primary race.

  1. OT: The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations said it would send Santorum a copy of the Quran, Islam’s holy text.

    “The Quran is the best refutation of Mr. Santorum’s inaccurate and offensive remarks,” said Ibrahim Hooper, a CAIR spokesman.

    The group cited Quran verses and sayings of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad that supported equality. For example, Prophet Muhammad is reported to have said, “All people are equal as the teeth of a comb.”


  2. The indispensable Kitman TV has “Generation Zero” available to watch online. What I find interesting is the claim that Mitt Romney’s business acumen is antidote to the looming financial collapse yet no-where do I read about this so-called conservative’s talent used to address this issue. The movie, however, does voice the opinion of dozens of conservatives – including John Bolton, Victor Davis Hansen, AND Newt Gingrich.
    Admittedly, I lean towards Gingrich for the GOP primaries, I notice that of all the candidates, Newt is the only one expressing his love of this country in every venue – particularly where the venue presents an opportunity to teach across generations.
    Many conservative voters simply cannot overlook Gingrich’s past personal indiscretions in his marriages. One of those indiscretions I find most appealing in Newt. An affair he cannot and has not tried to conceal – his passionate affection & total reverence for this nation & it’s foundations.
