So It Begins – GOP Civil War (VIDEO)

Author: November 9, 2012 7:04 pm

With the loss against the President, the GOP has been doing a lot of laying of blame. Now, one of the men who sought the GOP nomination to run against Obama has done the unthinkable.

Within 24 hours of the Romney defeat, Herman Cain was calling for the Tea Party to leave the Republican Party, as you can hear on “Focal Point” here:

I never thought that I would say this, and this is the first time publicly that I’ve said it: We need a third party to save this country. Not Ron Paul and the Ron Paulites. No. We need a legitimate third party to challenge the current system that we have, because I don’t believe that the Republican Party … has the ability to rebrand itself.

On the other side, you have Steve Schmidt, a Republican strategist who worked on the McCain campaign in 2008, who has called for the mainstream Republican party to repudiate the extremists, such as Rush Limbaugh:

When we asked some leaders within the Tea Party for their statements, they cited Reagan Rule #12:

Thou shall not start a third-party, thou shall take over the republican party

At 7:18 of this piece on Limbaugh, he states just this:

Limbaugh has already stated that should Obama win, the GOP is dead and a new, third-party would rise in its place. It appears for once, Rush is in fact right.

The next few years will be very telling for the Republican party. Shall the Tea Party split off, perhaps to merge with the Reform, Libertarian and Constitution parties to become a force on their own, the Liberty Party? Will they focus all efforts into taking over the Republican party? Will the GOP leadership reject them and force the Tea Party out? Difficult to say. But the seeds are planted, the first shots of the civil war begun.

  • So you’re saying it’s Obama’s fault that the stock market dropped because greedy US companies sitting on trillions in cash lack a the ethics and patriotism to get off their asses to follow regulations and pay taxes?

    Wrong. It’s those companies responsibility to DO THE RIGHT THING FOR AMERICA. And the world, if this is affecting the world market. Stop being greedy and selfish psychos. You’re like spoiled children holding your breath till your blue in the face. The people will suffer, but you’ll suffer more in the long run. SO GROW UP.

    Btw, has it occurred to you that some of those millions of republicans voters who “didn’t come out” might just be sane enough to have come out for Obama? Some of us regular people know for a fact that some of them did.

    So, GOP, it’s time to take a good hard look at yourself, get rid of your extreme right wing policies. Get rid of your tendencies toward racism and misogyny and your Calvinistic, elitist attitudes (the poor are bad the rich are good–NOT) AKA the Tea Party and, maybe just maybe, you’ll have a chance to bring your party back from the abyss of your self created insanity.

    That’s a long dark fall and you really don’t want to go there. So wake The Fk up, and put the People. That’s your job.

  • Not going to happen. Same talk after each political disaster as the Repubs move farther right to the edge of loony.

  • “Shall the Tea Party split off, perhaps to merge with the Reform, Libertarian and Constitution parties” ?

    Don’t forget the Dominionists! They will want a piece of this action.
