When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Glad Boehner had the good sense not to attend.  Not surprised at all at Cantor's presence.  If Cantor wins his primary, I surely hope his primary opponent runs against him as a third party candidate.  That may be the only way to get rid of these entrenched incumbents who are consistently in the left wing of the GOP.

Yeah.  Elect a Democrat. 

It's thinking like that that is destroying the GOP.  If I can't have my guy, I'd rather have a Democrat.

just remember that the left wing of the GOP is still much further to the right than the right wing of the democrat party.

Actually, it is brilliant politics when applied to certain RINOS.  The democrat could be defeated in only two years with a fresh and more Conservative face.   Conservatives would have a chance to actually elect a Conservative when the lobbyist gorged RINO lost.

True.  However, if the seat could be won by a Conservative, it makes no sense to keep electing a RINO.  A Conservative could win Cantor's seat and that is why he needs to GO.

And in the meantime, that democrat provides provides the democrats with one more seat towards taking back control of the House; we shouldn't have to be reminded of what happened the last time the democrat party controlled Congress, should we?  Put a democrat-controlled Congress together with an out-of-control president willing to exercise quasi-autocratic power via executive order, and the amount of additional damage done in those two years would be astronomical.

That is not, IMHO, a particularly good political strategy.  It smacks of "we have to burn the village down in order to save it."

It is my understanding that Cuccinelli won the district in the Governor's race.  He won this district overwhelmingly in his run as Attorney General.  That  is all I need to know.

When the RINO goes too far in a Conservative district, yes, you have to burn him to save the seat for Conservatism.  Burn, baby Burn!

Martyrdom will be cold comfort when the democrats retake control of the Congress this November.  And we'll have ideas like that to thank.

Bad move, IMHO.  Split the GOP/Conservative vote and the seat goes to a Democrat.    **nononono*

No conservative or republican will win by splitting the vote.  Period.

That is what the GOP is doing. If they can't have one of their own, they will settle for a democrat. Anything but a conservative!

And conversely if the seat cannot be won by a conservative, better a moderate Republican than a democrat.

It should be determined where the conservatives have little to no chance, and no resources wasted trying to do the impossible.

And the Tea Party should weed out their whacko birds before the election, not during the general.

No matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God.  We must love each other, show affection for each other, and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry, and violence.  We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans.

Racism is evil.  And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans

It's stupid politics.  If it's a Conservative district, your fellow voters wouldn't go along with you anyway.

Let's defeat a moderate Republican and elect Alan Grayson.

Baloney.  And you know it.  Republicans will vote for Republicans.

On the other hand, far-right conservative Republicans may not vote for a Republican.    I.E., Mitt Romney, 2012.

I don't appreciate your smarmy remarks to my opinions. You spend too much time twisting people's posts, so that you can lord something over them. The GOP is, for the most part, a club. They put up McCain, knowing he would probably lose. He was losing until Sarah came along, then he left the campaign to vote for TARP. That is when he tanked again and lost to Obama. I never said a word about republicans not voting for republicans. That's bs you invented to throw some trash.

I don't appreciate you asserting that Republicans would rather elect a Democrat. THAT IS BULLSHIT!!!

If you're not a Republican, admit it.  That way, we can discount whatever you have to say about the way the Republican Party functions. 

Nobody "put up" McCain.  He was elected with Republican votes.  These insane conspiracy theories that some on here propagate make Alex Jones look good.

Absolutely.  Sane conservatives accept that not everybody agrees with conservatives, and no amount of message massage is going to fix that.  Sad for conservatives that the majority of voters, who are not conservative, still vote, so any politicians wanting to get elected or re-elected must garner 51% of the vote.  So all the disaffected conservatives can take their ball and go 3rd party but don't expect the GOP to shed a tear.  They'll be too busy pandering to the moderate voters to make up for the missing "conservatives."
