What It Is

Michael Walsh:

“The GOP is not, in any meaningful sense, a conservative, first-principles, Constitutionalist party—-and unless it is subsumed by the Tea Party, it never will be. Rather, it’s content to be the lesser half of the Permanent Bipartisan Fusion Party as long as it can collect some of the pork scraps from underneath the table of the Permanent Bipartisan Fusion Government. No wonder they keep losing—they like it.”

    Well, the Republican Party obviously won’t be subsumed by the TEA Party or anything resembling a Constitutionalist party if it keeps nominating democrat-lite candidates like Schilling.

    Listen as Schilling spends several minutes of this interview doing everything he can to duck, dodge, and deflect (maybe his slogan should be D3 instead of B3;) the question of whether he’s a “TEA Party Republican”.

    Then listen to how Eric Reyes handles the same subject:

    First off, Reyes’s response sounds like it was plucked from a climactic scene of a movie, “Am I a member of that group? Of COURSE I am, and what I want to know is, why aren’t you? Etc. etc.”

    Second, how is this even a QUESTION for the voters of our district? Do we want a principled Constitutionalist who became a Republican because he believed that’s what the party stood for, or do we want an establishment Republican that you’d think was a democrat if it wasn’t for the (R) after his name?

    LV I listened to the Reyes interview with Taylor previously then listened again now. I had never managed to get through Schilling’s interview until now.

    These are the facts according to a recent Pew Research Survey: Tea Party GOPers make up 49% of the primary electorate and 37% of GOPers and GOP leaners. In other words, the GOP NEEDS the Tea Party to be a viable political party.

    It was really lame of Schilling to go on an extended rant/whine about how the “liberal” media was distorting what the TEA Party stood for—shocking news, I’m sure.

    Schilling also sounded shrill and agitated—not good for a supposed veteran campaigner.

    I thought it was hilarious he backed the Vitter Amendment which went down in flames at the hands of the Democrats. Poor Bobby! Always a day late and a dollar short!

    I know I’m biased because I’ll never forgive Schilling for lying about who is running my blog, but Reyes sounded calm and clear as opposed to the frantic rantings about liberal media by Schilling.
