Watching FOX. Foley Issue is starting to tear Republican party apart.
Edited on Sun Oct-08-06 09:39 AM by Quixote1818
I am listening to FOX news and they have three different Conservatives on. The guy from the family research counsel is saying the Republican party has too big a tent and he is threatening the Republicans about being too open to gay people. He said "The Republican party cant be the party of family values and the party of Mark foley" and if they continue to be tollerant of guys like Foley, they will stay home.

Some of the nut-case base is saying come with us or we will leave. Unfortunately Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell and James Dobson have not signed on to the civil war. They obviously are more concerned with their power rather than their sick values.

2. Well, a divided party is a troubled party.
Maybe the Republicans are finally paying the price for the hypocrisy of claiming to stand for "family values" when they really don't?

4. I wonder if they can see....
the fact, that their religious leaders are not out speaking for their values? Took them long enough to see that the Republican party was exactly what they claim to denounce. I sorta feel bad for them. Must be terrible to be that betrayed and used.
