    ‘Maverick’ wanders into the wrong herd

    From CNN
    ‘Maverick’ wanders into the wrong herd – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

    I just wish he'd join the left already and let the Republican Party be the party of the right. I'm tired of RINO's pretending to be Republicans when they aren't. Please take Christie with ya - I think he could give Hilda a run for her money in the '16 primary.

    More like a slow walk. Runs are hard on the ankles.

    Not sure why a humorous mishap documented on a blog is being used to call for Mccain's exit, or the reasoning behind the continued dislike for Christie from the right in general and tea party types specifically. The movement has become a giant and largely politically illiterate burden on the GOP.

    Why do you want the Republican Party to be only right wing?

    I'd rather the divide in the Republican party be neocons' v libertarians than have liberals pretending they are Republicans.

    By the way I consider myself more a neocon then a libertarian every day.

    That must be why you're so adamantly against Obama's continuance of policies set in place by neocons.

    So do you agree with this:

    Today's neo-conservatives unite around three common themes:

    1. A belief deriving from religious conviction that the human condition is defined as a choice between good and evil and that the true measure of political character is to be found in the willingness by the former (themselves) to confront the latter.
    2. An assertion that the fundamental determinant of the relationship between states rests on military power and the willingness to use it.
    3. A primary focus on the Middle East and global Islam as the principal theater for American overseas interests. In putting these themes into practice, neo-conservatives:

    1. Analyze international issues in black-and-white, absolute moral categories. They are fortified by a conviction that they alone hold the moral high ground and argue that disagreement is tantamount to defeatism.
    2. Focus on the "unipolar" power of the United States, seeing the use of military force as the first, not the last, option of foreign policy. They repudiate the "lessons of Vietnam," which they interpret as undermining American will toward the use of force, and embrace the "lessons of Munich," interpreted as establishing the virtues of preemptive military action.
    3. Disdain conventional diplomatic agencies such as the State Department and conventional country-specific, realist, and pragmatic, analysis. They are hostile toward nonmilitary multilateral institutions and instinctively antagonistic toward international treaties and agreements. "Global unilateralism" is their watchword. They are fortified by international criticism, believing that it confirms American virtue.

    I agree with your preference. There is no room in today's Republican party for moderates or even reasonable conservatives.

    called GOP conservatives "wacko birds"

    What I've gotten from this thread is if a Republican doesn't act bats**t insane, they must be a liberal Democrat.
