The Dems do, and so do the Republicans. I don't like it, and frankly I would prefer people vote their conscience, but that ain't happening, so the conservatives, if they act like conservatives once in power will clean a lot of it up.

    We always end up cleaning up someone else's mess.

    It's what we do.


    Tim-
    Well that's probably proof that the Republocrats don't deserve to be in office anymore. The "party" didn't used to move as one politically and it's horrible to even endorse that sort of group think in a democratic, free Republic. Group think is not good for our form of government. We need intelligence, not ventriloquists.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    He was all for doing just that when he was sure he was going to be the winner and on the receiving end. Now, instead he took off for a meeting with Obama and Biden after he lost.

    Yes.

    Exactly.

    It's called "team spirit", "good sportsmanship", "honor", "integrity", and "being a real man".

    And it's EXACTLY what he would demand of her and her supporters if he'd won the primary. But, since he's always been a RINO, "hypocrite" is his middle name.

    Not even the Republican party feels that way. Besides since when do "campions of individual rights and liberties" say someone has no choice but to follow the Party against their wishes.

    Sorry, but you're wrong.

    A person joins a party because a presumed shared set of beliefs, the party (ie the people) chose candidates on the presumption that the candidate shares enough similar beliefs to be a useful member of the team, and as a member of the team, they are expected to follow certain basic codes. One of those codes is to keep supporting the team when the fans voted for the other guy as MVP.

    Did the Red Queen endorse McCain just because her attempts to play the race card in the 2008 primaries were trumped by Obama's natural joker in the Race Game? No. Hillary went out and helped, and the Messiah carefully put her out in plain sight as Secretary of State where he could keep an eye on her.

    Refusing to support your rival in the primary in a childish fit of pique knowing that such churlishness might easily allow the opposing team to win the game is dispicable and cowardly.

    I'm all for crazy loons if they'll:

    Cut spending.
    Cut taxes.
    Protect the unborn.
    Close the damn borders and send the invaders home.

    One might also say its childish to give insulting nicknames and deny the respect the President and Sec of State deserve simply by being "voted MVP" as you put it.

    Yes.

    That's why the GOP is finding it's hand picked candidates getting pushed out the door and American candidates are replacing them on the ballots.

    When the indivdual chooses to join a group, he assumes responsibilities and duties as a member of that group. Ain't one damn thing in libertarianism that relieves the individual of the responsibility to fulfill formal and implied obligations. If Castle wanted to abandon the Republicans in Delaware, there were two times when it was appropriate to do so, when his choice would not harm people he allowed to rely on his behavior. When he filed his candidacy for the Senate primary, and when the November election was over.

    Castle was the little child who ran home crying when the short-stop got the ball to first base before he did. The GOP should be glad that wimpy ass lost. The Americans certainly are.

    One might, but if that's what you got for ammunition, you're probably not going to get anywhere in any sort of debate. When the Messiah and the Red Queen do something I can respect them for, like resigning, I'll give them the respect they deserve, just like I do right now.

    Besides, who was the last Secretary of State the earned any respect? Kissinger?

    I wonder if you'll be so sure "its what the Americans want" when she loses. Anyway, again the Republican Party isn't supporting O'Donnell that much either. So Castle is actually more in line with his Party than O'Donnell is, in a way. And why is that? Because the Republican party doesn't think she can win and don't like her positions precisely because they are too divisive. So if you expect Republicans to do whats best for the party as a whole than O'Donnell should change her platform so her money holders can hope their investment will pay off come election day.
