Time for Colin Powell to exit "party left" Part 2

History has proven that moderate Republicans simply can't beat liberal Democrats in Presidential Elections. Gerald Ford lost to Jimmy Carter. Bob Dole lost to Bill Clinton and John McCain lost to Barack Obama. The moderate wings of the GOP had to blame Palin in order to keep alive the "myth" that the GOP has to move to the center in order to be viable. This is where their argument collapse upon itself like a house of cards. If the country truly became a "center" balanced nation, why did Obama beat McCain? Obama isn't a centrist. He's as left as left can get. Here's the second argument. If Palin was the "weak point" of the McCain ticket due to her being "polarizing" according to Colin Powell, how did George Bush win two terms with Dick Cheney? Dick Cheney was actually way more conservative then George Bush. The left loathed Dick Cheney. The media had vodoo dolls of Cheney. Cheney was portrayed as the puppeteer of Bush, yet Bush won two terms with him on the ticket. This goes to show why it is absurd to even believe for one minute that the country has changed in five years from center-right to the center during the time Bush was re-elected in 2004 until Obama was elected in 2009. Powell's is so caught up in his ego, he can't even see what is right in front of his face. Americans don't want "bigger government". They also don't want to "pay more in taxes". Powell is out of touch with not only the GOP, he's out of touch with the nation in general. That is why most people believe the GOP "doesn't have a message". The party should be listening to people like Rush Limbaugh, Jim DeMint, Tom Tancredo, Duncan Hunter, Mark Levin, Tom Mc Clintock, Mark Sanford, Bobby Jindal, Mitt Romney and yes Sarah Palin. These people shared the views of what made the GOP a majority party on the congressional and presidential level. Colin Powell has proven that he can run his mouth and not have a clue about what the American people want from their elected officials. I agree with Limbaugh. It is time for Powell to follow the Arlen Specter's lead and change his voter's registration card from Republican to Democrat.

I can't stand moderate Republicans I think they're worse than Liberal Republicans. Moderates seem to be what I would call wishy-washy losers who go along to get along. Unfortunately by getting along with Liberals that usually means doing things the Liberal way or the highway.

I hate the term moderate that term implies that having strong convictions makes you an extremist. Well if that is the case than the term extremist applies to Liberals too!

The only moderation I want is how much food I consume not moderate positions on issues of great moral importance!

The Pennsylvania Republican Party seems hell bent on running a moderate to try and take on Specter next year in the general Chilerkle, and I can really care less if that Republican loses to Specter. Moderates do have their place within the party, but they have a proven track record of failure. I seriously need to find the time to do this story Chilerkle, because it goes to the heart of what I've been saying for awhile now. The lastest Gallup poll shows that for the first time in our country more then 51% of people OPPOSE abortion. Moderate Republicans want to try and swift the party's platform off of the social issues, yet Americans as a majority share the conservative's stance on abortion. It goes to show that if moderate republicans think for one second they can win without conservatives, they are in for a rude awakening. I hate the " go along to get along" mentality of moderate republicans too Chilerkle. We never see liberal democrats embrace that weak mindset. I actually respect liberal Democrats for at least having the will to fight for what they believe, even though I drastically disagree with what they represent.

I see what you're saying Chilerkle. Maybe a new name should be created to describe them. What should they be called though? We could call them "non conservative" republicans. That actually could work. It has a nice clean ring to it, and it perfectly describe them for what they are. Non conservative republicans are about obtaining power then running on and defending morality. That will never change. Arlene Specter was the perfect example of that Chilerkle. I know he won't be the last either.
