We like to think that the GOP and conservatives are one, but there is a lot of ground between some of the Republican hypocrites calling the shots and the conservative voters they rely on. Eric Cantor just found out what happens when you step over the line.
You can trust Obama to do what he says if he thinks he can get away with it. Don’t confuse trust with honesty or integrity, though. They are not the same. In most cases being trustworthy is good. There are exceptions.
Is it easier to destroy conservative career politicians than ruin the lives of liberal Democrats? We like to complain about media bias and railroading, but the press is not always as forgiving of the left as we like to think. In Illinois we delight in watching Democrats fall down hard.
The worst thing about Republicans is that they don’t act like Democrats. Sticking together has never been their strong point, but John Boehner’s doublespeak is undermining America’s conservative party after each new attack from the left. It doesn’t sound like a strategy anymore.
Conservatives need to be careful how we pick our shots. We can thank the Supreme Court for striking a unifying blow with last week’s same-sex marriage decision, but will we end up shaking our heads after taking up a losing battle we shouldn’t have wasted our time with?
