Lady on Oreilly and future of Republican party

Some lady was guest hosting oreilly tonight (no clue who she is). The topic came up of whether the republicans should move to the center. She was as condescending as can be in her response. It was like her version of Colbert's "The Word" so this was the really meaningful and well thought out argument.


She said that Republicans should not, in any way, move to the center. They need to "bring women and latinos into the party but without pandering to them." She went further, stating moderate republicans do not win but very conservative ones do. Examples like Scott Brown and McMahon (conneticut) prove this model. She finished with stating that President obama did not become more moderate to win votes, instead he maintained his "liberal" views; therefore why should the republicans move to the center if Obama refuses to.


Ok...she is an idiot. So you are telling me that the only reason republicans lose is because they are too moderate? That makes no sense. Yes, voters want a severely conservative candidate but because they dont get one they instead vote for the liberal. got it. This just speaks more and more to the huge disconnect they have with the reality based community. They only listen to arguments and information that supports their world view, everything else is ignored or considered a lie. Therefore, they see no problems with their worldview and make absurd conclusions to validate it.

Just like the republican guy I know who said Santorum would win moderate and independent voters.

1. They are thrashing around in blind denial.

How are they going to attract anyone to the party without pandering? Pay them outright?

They have a hateful mean condecsending racist sexist platform. Who is that going to attract? Besides the usual run of the mill teabagger types that is.

3. I love it....I want this mentality to continue....

I hope that Reince Peenus continues to be the head of the RNC.

The more they believe the reason they lost was because they weren't conservative enough the better for us because, of course, we believe in facts. We know that isn't true.

But I want them to think that. In fact I hope they nominate more like Akin and Walsh and West and Mourdock. It assures us more wins at the ballot box.

7. When Ideology makes you that blind

It has become Idiotology.

I wonder how much of it is living in the Fox News/Hate Radio bubble.

8. Already they're saying

"Conservatism didn't lose! RMoney wasn't conservative enough!"

I, for one, won't attempt to disengage them from their "winning strategy." I hope they continue going all-in, continue kicking out "moderates," screeching further for candidates that fit EVERY checkpoint in their absurd agenda, until the only ones left are wearing pointed sheets over their heads.

I do expect, though, that Billy and Franklin Graham Crackers will add mormons back into their "cult" list. Haven't checked to see whether they also took the Moonies out of that list--recall, please, that moonies 1) supported repigs, and 2) held a coronation of Moon in DC a couple years ago, where they declared him "True Father" ie, the second coming of Baby Jaybus.

9. Romney was losing big time before the first debate

Then, Romney went from ultra-conservative radical in the primaries to Moderate Mitt from Massachusetts in the debate and suddenly started zooming up in the polls.

It was only when Obama put him in his place in the next two debates did the air go out of his balloon. If Obama had called him out on his lies & flip-flops in the first debate and it was a draw, Obama would have romped to a landslide victory by 10 points or more and picked up 400 or more electoral votes.

10. probably laura ingraham...and she did the same thing

last night...had a young republican woman on as a 'guest', who also spoke about bringing repubs back toward the middle..mentioned akin and crew...and ingraham put her down, talked over her and treated her like schitt...totally uncalled for, in my opinion.
