    The candidates are the public profile for the Party and once selected are essentially heir apparent for the Party. The RNC knows this well, which is why they had tried 3 years ago to dramatically alter their image and informational infrastructure, in hopes that it would reverberate throughout the entire Party and their future candidates.

    They are, in effect, the Party.

    Greetings, Fiddytree.

    Sorry, but I don't understand your post. Why would the RNC be affected?

    An event as described here is a pre-nomination affair, and not a party event. Candidates go where the votes are; there's nothing to talk about.

    It's all connected even though the particulars are not. The national committee has a vested interest in promoting a platform that resonates, finding candidates that fit that profile, and being able to control the public image of its party and its candidates, wherever they are. It's a pr issue even though the event is private.

    I disagree. They simply point to this group as one constituent in their big tent.

    It seems to me it is you who are pretending to know far more than you really do about these issues. You hope that if you throw in enough overheated, emotional assertions, you can hide how poorly you understand the subject. But like most of the people who share your views, you really don't want to understand it.

    Right, because the freedom of some and their pursuit of happiness should be subject to mob rule.
    Your heart-rending verbiage means absolutely nothing. I could just as easily hold out the crying towel for the poor, beleaguered women in this country who are cruelly being denied the freedom to marry their daughters. No one has a constitutional right to the "pursuit of happiness"--that is a phrase from the Declaration of Independence. In any case, Jefferson used the word "happiness" in the sense of "good fortune," not as a synonym for joy. And the real advocates of mob rule are the statist bullies who share their president's contempt for the Constitution and taste for lawlessness.

    Are you saying that the GOP isn't sponsoring it? That is correct. However, have you seen the list of speakers and invited speakers (those who have not yet confirmed)? It's Republican, Jack.
