    Taking back the GOP to the party of my parents. Here’s hoping.

    Because anyone not as far right as the spectrum allows is automatically a Democrat? The Republican “big tent” can’t allow any moderates?

    The Tea Party darling lost the governor’s race here in Virginia. People are wising up. It is not the message that is being rejected; it’s the application.

    We can agree a patient needs surgery. A statesman will use a scalpel and will skillfully remove a planned amount of diseased tissue. A tea party candidate will run in with a machete and a blindfold.

    Again, a disconnect between the message and the method. Not unlike almost every politician.

    The Republican party can go two ways from here: the TP wing can recognize that it has to moderate in order to accomplish anything, and the party will once again hold together reasonably, but allowing for at least some ideological impurity. OR the TP will insist on tossing out anyone that is not just like them in every respect. The latter approach will either split the Republican party into two, or will winnow out moderate Republicans, and its ideological and adamantine need for purity of ideals will doom the party to insignificance. I hope for the former, but there are a lot of people who are more interested in acting like spoiled babies than finding common ground and building from that.

    It seems most people can’t seem to understand reality. Christie is part of the Republican subdivision of the Socialist Party. He has nothing to do with the Tea Party. Never did. Never will. Unless in the future he is extremely desperate for votes. In New Jersey, you could round up all the Tea Party people and be lucky if you find a thousand of them. To top it off, Christie, like Romney, is in a state full of kook socialists who were fed up with the previous kook socialist. Now Christie, like Romney, has to bend over backwards to deal with the socialist losers. What works in New Jersey and Massachusetts doesn’t work in Flyover Country where real Americans live.

    I don’t think we’ll get the 2012 spectacle of 27 or so podium discussions with Gingrich, Bachmann, Perry and Cain again. Pity. But one GOP primary TV event with Chris Christie vs. some real stupid TEA-party guy could make up for all of that…

    “What works in New Jersey and Massachusetts doesn’t work in Flyover Country where real Americans live.”

    So you’re saying that just because some people NJ or MA don’t agree with you, they’re not “real” Americans?

    The Buckley Rule: Support the most Right leaning viable candidate that can win. In NJ, it’s a Christie.

    They were called Dixiecrats.. you know the party of George Wallace

    @Gresch

    Correct. It’s also correct that said Dixiecrats joined the Republican Party after the Democrats passed the civil rights legislation back in the 1960s.
