    No one Republican can trust backstabbing opportunistic and knee-jerk reaction Christie. He's the ultimate loose cannon on the deck.
    Why, because he worked with the President in the aftermath of Sandy and put the interests of his state above partisan politics?

    I would have taken him over Romney, Republicans shot themselves in the foot with that nomination

    We're discussing 1828. No conservatives by then. QED

    Tell me: do you think every single Federalist in the nation had embraced the Democracy by 1828? You don't think there were any stalwarts hiding out in the rural hinterlands of Vermont, say? Or the forests of Maine?

    You may call that analysis, but I call it sloppy.

    Pedantry is the accusation leveled at the erudite by the unschooled. There were, no doubt, hidden "stalwarts" (to use your term), just as there are "stalwarts" today who claim the income tax is unconstitutional. In neither case, then or now, were/are they of any political consequence.

    The Era of Good Feelings was a unique period, but when we embrace models we do the disservice of ignoring complexities regarding the changing viewpoints of political viewpoints. If there were no conservatives in 1828, we have to come to terms with the John Quincy Adams and the Whig Party somehow.

    So you think that you had to have opposed elective democracy in its entirety in order to count as a 'conservative' in 1828? Praytell, when do you think this changed? Surely no conservative completely opposes the ballot today. Even those lunatics who want to turn back over to the state legislatures elections to the Senate do not oppose electing the state legislators themselves.

    I have plenty of tools. I should be employing them right now instead of being on this forum. Perhaps you served as a good reminder to go back to researching conservative nuclear strategists of the Cold War.
