    Looks like republicans may have had enough from the tea party. Could the republicans be ready to cave and increase taxes on the wealthy? Might we actually get a true conservative proposal involving less spending all around, and some increased revenue from the rich and spoiled? Have the republicans actually learned a lesson from this past election?
    Republicans may have had enough but real conservatives have not. (R) big R Republicans are not conservatives or Constitutionalists.

    No its not about anyone learning any lessons...both parties do whatever it takes to win, right now traditional republicans gave the teaparty a go, if the teaparty caught on with mainstream american boehner and everyone else would be right with them..but they failed and the leadership knows its either get away from the teaparty extremism or keep on losing.
    The teaparty only got as far as it did because of the SUPER RICH pouring hundreds of millions into teaparty DONT RAISE TAXES ON THE RICH candidates just take more from the middleclass...it all went up in smoke...the superrich lost over a billion dollars collectively...time for the teaparty to get lost

    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    I don't think there's much appetite in the GOP for corporatism.

    You didn't get the memo, did you? Limbaugh runs the GOP. Whatever he says, no matter how odious, has to be genuflected to by GOP politicians. Remember the "slut" episode.

    You just don't get it. The Real GOP is run by the tea party and subliterates like Palin.

    Bring on the cliffy....we need to show the left its over, there are no seats left, the music has stopped and they can't just continue to print and spend.
    Subliteracy and xenophobia, with a dollop of debt fetishism, is the GOP conscience. Perfect.

    If that was true, then y'all would have heard from him by now. The (R) GOP establishment Republicans which run the GOP...not the tea party are no better than the Democrats and just as far left. They both want the same things...unfettered spending and big government.

    He's the boss of the GOP. Get used to it. Anybody in the GOP who bucks him will be denounced by Limbaugh and his gang of subliterates and they'll lose the next primary.

    I hope this fairy tale keeps you warm at night. Meantime, the GOP can only become more and more extreme, more and more freakish, with subliterate weirdos like Palin in the lead.

    The rightwing noise machine doesn't have an off switch.
