No Ace. No Sleeve.

An ace up your sleeve. We keep believing the GOP has one. We keep thinking the GOP is as smart as its base. It is not.

It is monocultural to the point of being ingrown, intellectually incestuous as the media pundits require them to be, and fecklessly driven to populism over substance. It doesn’t matter how many people you put under the GOP “Big Tent” if the anchoring pegs have been carelessly eased out of the ground. The first big gust of resistance imperils the entire assembly. -- Bill Kristol, GOP, and Big Tents | Primordial Slack

Your Say

And apparently the only people not allowed in the tent are the Conservatives!

Democrats run their operations like a crime family. If you're ruthless enough and are willing to break legs and 'take the fall' when directed, there'll a place for you.

Republicans run their operations like a family business. No matter how hard or innovative you work, you'll never move up to the front offices if there's a relative of the original owners still breathing.

I've made it clear to my Congressman if Boehner remains as Speaker I will not support the GOP any longer. And, I will not give any money to any Congressman or woman that votes to retain him as Speaker. If you reward or ignore repeated failure you have nobody to blame but your self.

Boehner has made it his full-time job to thwart or remove TEA Party members. Boehner and the drunkard running the RNC need to be left on an ice flow.

Conservatives say they believe in limited government, less spending and more freedom yet for some reason, they always vote for republicans.
