Boehner and McConnell Must Lead on Ebola

Erick Erickson, Red State

This should be a no brainer. In an election year when the GOP will not even offer the hint of an agenda because they are playing it safe, this is a safe play. They should show leadership on this issue where Barack Obama is failing to lead.

Tom T. Florida, Red State

Thirty-five days until the Nov. election and the GOP has long since gone to ground. If we didn’t know better, we’d swear Boehner, McConnell and Co. had members locked in a basement in the Capitol, the federal witness protection program has nothing on the GOP when it comes to the art of disappearing.

GOP Refuses to Nationalize the Election

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

Starting today, each conservative must commit themselves to driving home where Democrats stand on amnesty for illegal aliens, national security, and Obama’s lies and corruption. This is the golden hour; we can change history and save our country if we act together today.

Alexander Bolton, The Hill

Are You Going To Let The US Chamber Buy The GOP?

As Richard Viguerie says in TAKEOVER, if we conservatives act like just another pressure group – like the US Chamber of Commerce – we are going to lose, because we can never outbid Big Business for the services of the GOP elite.

The attack ads in MS run by “All Citizens for Mississippi” were funded by Senate R's, including Sens. Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, Rob Portman, Bob Corker, and Roy Blunt. Senate Repub. leaders are willing to risk losing a majority so they can get their own re-elected. 

Why We Must (Gently) Disagree With Rich and Ramesh

Now is the time for limited government constitutional conservatives to contest every primary and every election for precinct committeeman. Now is not the time to engage in wishful thinking about a “new synthesis” that will only act to keep Big Government Republicans like Mitch McConnell, Thad Cochran and Lamar Alexander in power to continue the policies we conservatives oppose.
