Sarah Palin Blasts Moderate Republicans At Newsmax Event
I thought this was interesting - Sarah Palin spoke at an event organized by the conservative magazine Newsmax, where she had made a wide variety of comments (all short of her official announcement to run for president in 2012).
There was one particular statement Palin made that I found interesting because it is a topic that I write about frequently - the GOP's marginalization of moderate Republicans and willingness to ignore over half the electorate.
Palin discussed the importance of keeping the tea party movement in the GOP but criticized establishment Republicans who she said weren’t listening to the party’s grass roots by supporting moderate candidates over conservatives. If the party recaptures Congress, she said, Republicans must govern differently than in the Bush years and show more fidelity to small-government principles on spending.
Considering there are more registered Democrats then there are Republicans, and considering not all Americans support a conservative platform - remember a small percentage of people support the right-wing tea party - Palin is essentially pushing for the GOP to try and get elected so they can ignore moderate Republicans as well as liberals.
I don't know about you but I do not want to live in a country with legislators like Sharron Angle and Christine O'Donnell writing the laws determining what I can and cannot do...
