Editor’s Note – Try as we might to believe in the Republican Party and have faith that THIS time they’ll get it right, a story such as this comes out.

I just don’t get it, or, maybe the problem is that I do.  Is it possible that in pursuit of the almighty dollar, Republicans, living up to their ‘capitalist’ branding, forego any adherence to principle and integrity?

There’s lots of talk about the tenacity of our Democrat opponents.  In some cases, outright admiration for the way Pelosi, Reid and Co. are willing to fight for what they believe to be right.  Never mind that our Progressive friends are far from it, they BELIEVE they’re right and they’re willing to fight and sacrifice for that believe.

Did we witness that type of conviction from the Republicans in the lame duck session?  To paraphrase John Boehner; ” Hell no, we didn’t!” 

One thing is certain, if the Republican Party thinks the Democrats paid a heavy price in November, they haven’t seen anything yet!  Proceed with your habits of old and let America down and you just might witness the complete annihilation of your Grand Old Party in 2012. 

 

Good Grief… Leading RNC Candidate’s Law Firm Supports Obamacare – Says It’s Constitutional

This will go over well with the conservative base…

If you thought the fact that RNC Chair candidate, Maria Cino, was an Obamacare lobbyist was outrageous wait until you hear the latest…

The leading candidate in the race – Reince Priebus‘s law firm supports Obamacare and says its constitutional!

Yes, you read that correctly.

Reince Priebus’s law firm supports Obamacare and says its constitutional.

Unbelievable.

The far left Think Progress website reported this today:

On January 14, 168 standing members of the Republican National Committee (RNC) will hold an election to select the next national chairman of the party. Current RNC Chairman Michael Steele is running for a second term against a number of challengers, including Saul Anuzis, Ann Wagner, Maria Cino, Gentry Collins, and Reince Priebus.

Priebus, the current state chairman of the Wisconsin GOP, is positioning himself as the true conservative alternative to Steele…

Despite his heated anti-Obama attacks, Priebus makes a living at a law firm far more comfortable with the policies of President Obama. Priebus works as a partner at the Milwaukee law firm Michael Best & Friedrich LLP. Over the summer, the firm created a series of presentations to explain health reform to its clients and to pitch the firm’s services for employers looking to comply with new health reform regulations. In one presentation, John Barlament, a colleague to Priebus at the firm, said that a health reform repeal is not only unlikely, but that the lawsuits brought by Republican Party allies to declare the law unconstitutional probably have no merit. Referring to the controversy over the individual mandate, Barlament explained that the commerce clause of the constitution “gives Congress authority to act on his legislation.”

It will be interesting to hear what GOP Leader John Boehner, GOP Whip Eric Cantor and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell have to say about this.

Is this really the person who needs to be leading the RNC for the next two years?
