Whether it's Jim Jeffords, Lincoln Chafee, Arlen Specter, or Chris Christie, Northeastern Republicans are crap.
I'm old enough to remember when a RINO was someone like Charlie Crist, Arlen Specter, or Lincoln Chafee and not Tom Cotton …
Just had to share this truth from Robert...I agree the Republican Party isn't the GOP anymore. Robert Shepherd shared Occupy Democrats's photo. Head in the sand? Some Republicans woke up. (I was one) Yes, I am a lifelong Republican, but now vote all Democrat. Have I shifted liberal? Hey even Sarah Palin blasted the male chauvinists and rape-excusers. They have driven out Olympia Snowe and Jim Jeffords and Richard Lugar and Jim Leach and the late Arlen Specter. And just look at all the former Republicans who now went for Obama, Colin Powell and Larry Pressler and Charlie Crist of Florida, Ron Reagan, Lincoln Chafee and Chuck Hagel, Ray Lahood and Robert Gates. Then there's Ed Rendell and the evangelical Frank Schaeffer. Bob Dole said not even REAGAN himself would make it into today's Republican Party. Jon Huntsman said Republicans had better change or they'll be extinct. Republican governor Bobby Jindal said he wishes the Republicans would quit being the party of stupid. Personally, I wish they would pass ...
John Mccain was a mistake, Mitt Romney was a mistake, Bob Dole was a mistake, Arlen Specter was a mistake, Jim Jeffords was a mistake, Lincoln Chafee was a mistake, Kelly Ayotte was a mistake, Bob Corker was a mistake, Charlie Crist was a mistake, Lisa Murkowski was a mistake, Olympia Snowe was a mistake, Susan Collins was a mistake, Kay Bailey Hutchison was a mistake, Roy Blunt was a mistake, Jerry Moran was a mistake, Saxby Chambliss was a mistake, Elizabeth Dole was a mistake, Lamar Alexander was a mistake, Lindsey Graham was a mistake, Mitch Mcconnell was a mistake, Orrin Hatch was a mistake. I could go on...and on...and on.
As recently as 2004-06, it was difficult to primary Arlen Specter and Lincoln Chafee (both won).
Remember Dwight Eisenhower, Nelson Rockefeller, Jacob Javits, Mark Hatfield, Olympia Snowe, Lincoln Chafee, Norm Coleman, Gordon Smith, Ted Stevens, Pete Domenici, Arlen Specter and Richard Lugar? They were the respected stalwarts of the GOP whether or not we agreed with them on any given issue. What happened to their legacy? How did the Republican Party morph into the cacophony of the voices of Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum, Michelle Bachmann, Darrel Issa. Peter King, Jan Brewer, Jim DeMint, Eric Cantor, Todd Akin, Joe Arpaio, Grover Norquist and Rush Limbaugh? Most savvy pundits agree that even Ronald Regan, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, George Romney and the first President Bush would not be welcomed candidates by current party criteria. The American public would be better served by a healthy two-party government working together for them. Barring an unforeseen calamity, President Obama is likely to be re-elected. Despite the demonizing rhetoric to the contrary, he is a moderate centrist in many ways simil ...
