What I Told The Heritage Foundation

By Richard A. Viguerie, Author & CHQ Chairman

Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint is the de facto leader of the conservative movement because he understands that, while the establishment media and big-government Republicans have done a good job of blaming conservatives for Republican losses, the reality is voters consistently reject big-government, content-free Republicans. The GOP only wins when it draws a clear contrast with the secular liberal big government worldview of the Democrats.

Time for New Leadership

Erick Erickson, Red State

30 years ago, Mitch McConnell ran for the Senate because his opponent kept claiming to be for spending cuts while raising spending. His opponent kept claiming to be a conservative, while letting big government grow. McConnell needs to be reminded of his own words.

House Conservatives Finally Focusing On True Opponent

In my new book TAKEOVER I make the case that conservatives been fighting the Democrats, when the greatest impediments to the conservative governance of America are not Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid; they are John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy and Reince Priebus. Now it looks like 40 to 50 members of the House Republican Conference agree with me.

Tea Party Tested: In One Month, Establishment on Defense

Kyle Trygstad, Roll Call

A seven-week gauntlet of Repub. Senate primaries kicking off in May will decide the fate of the tea party’s success this year. If a Repub. incumbent senator loses a primary this year, it will more than likely occur in a span of nominating contests premiering in one month.

How’s This for a Bold Contrast?

McConnell Is No Conservative

Brent Bozell, The Hill

Mitch McConnell's empty threats against people who actually helped him for so many years sound silly and desperate. He has proven that he can’t lead, he should step aside for someone else.
