    Progressive Conservatives are more reasonable and are open to more Liberal ideas as well. Under Mulroney he wanted free trade, which is what he got but he also passed major environmental legislation as well. They are open to cooperation and when they see the need for something that would considered Liberal like environmental legislation they will listen.

    It shouldn't be, they should be able to come to a reasonable conclusion that is best for the country not staying firmly on their sides getting nothing done.

Might as well as start getting them use to the back of the Bus. Where we should make sure they are always sitting at.....from now on!
    Haha! I feel the same way with the swing states.

    Its a repetition of what others think with no commentary, opinions, or direction for the purpose of this thread. Also a drive by since the op has yet to follow up.

    Anything wrong with Moderates? They would be more apt to agree and work on solutions.

    Santorum and Paul are nearly opposite: a Religious Right statist vs. a raw libertarian.
    Perry is a social conservative, but no crusader, and perefers to talk about low taxes in Texas.
    Ryan is a fiscal conservative primarily interested in budget issues.
    Palin is a clown.

    Perry
    Santorum

    As we can see, and not surprisingly, CPAC plans to play to the right of right and then pander to the extreme right from there. It's what lost the GOP their last election. It's same old, same old with the same message. It's going to have the same appeal as it has in the past, even less so, as more people, dazed and disillusioned, leave GOP as I did, as many of us did.

    CPAC meanders like an old drunk to the same bar, to drink with the same people and suffer the same ills as in the past, while it blames its failures on everybody else.

    Christie, at this point, doesn't fit in the list of losers above. If Christie really has big balls, he'll avoid the getting the stench of CPAC all over himself.

    If the GOP is going to live, it's going to have to change. In fact, if the GOP is going to live, it's going to have to get the hell away from a lot of the speakers in the CPAC list above. Does Christie want to be mobbed up with that group? We will see.


    Well Breitbart won't be there, making a fool of himself and his party.

    They dont have the Conservative lean though, progressive Conservatives still have that in other words they are still Conservatives while moderates are not.
