Did anyone listen to On-Point this morning?

He had a few Republicans on. The first one was wacky, richard Viguerie, swears that when republicans are more conservative, like Reagan, they win. David Frum tried to get him to understand that Reagan was 30 years, that the world has changed and that the only reason they won seats in 2010 was because older whites were a majority of the voters. No matter what he said, the guy wouldn't agree.

Then Brent Rozell came on, and said the same things. Reagan, Reagan, Reagan, showed that young people can be conservative. Again, Frum said, "these are the old white people who support Reoubs now!" One repub said they have to "seem" less threatening to Latinos, while actually not changing policy.

It. Made me very happy to hear that leaders in the Republican Party think they need to get even more conservative in their platforms and policies! The Democratic Party has a gray future with these kind of "thinkers" running the party!

And if you go to this link, and listen to the Heritage Video, you will be seriously scared by the latter day aryan giving Repubs their marching orders.

1. I listened to it. It's nice to see that they're not learning at all. Let's prep for a good 2014...

...and not sit back and be complacent like 2010

6. This is why a 2 party system doesn't work, though...

As the Democrats keep pulling in what the Republicans lost, Dems will become even more conservative.

A parliamentary system that could accommodate a third party in between R and D, or to the left of D would prevent us from being left behind by the rest of the modern world in so many areas.

3. Yes we should help them express those points of view.......

Especially Let them express why siding with rapists is a good thing from their viewpoint

Also that other opinion that the GOP will like all to know about. The Republican belief that this is only a white man's country and all Latinos need to go home.

4. Listened and found it fascinating.

Primarily because they are all over the place and seem to agree on absolutely nothing.

The Tea Party leader was completely out of touch.

5. The bottom line is that anyone with a brain knows this isn't true. Viguerie and the Tea

Party leaders are making a killing out of selling the RW rubes on their bullshit. They have to keep it up to keep the money rolling in. There is a whole industry of RW snake oil based on this niche market. Just think of all the gold, guns and "survival" stocks these guys have sold (think Glenn Beck). If they moderate, they'll lose sales.
