Problems in the Kansas GOP

From the Wichita Eagle Groups including the Kansas Republican Assembly, which warns against straying from core conservative principles, and Kansans for a Traditional Republican Majority, which on its Web site states its fears that "the politics of hatred and alienation" is driving moderate Republicans from the party, are staking out their own positions.

Hey, TC - friendly suggestion.

Why not use the blockquote tag. It's < blockquote > < /blockquote >

Interesting stuff. This of course is all healthy for the Party to have these kinds of internal discussions. Hopefully they will not turn to the other party in order to back-stab anyone.

I also wish these people in the "Traditional Republican Majority" well. I think they might feel alot better if they would just choose to avoid using "the politics of hatred and alienation". Then they might be able to sit down and work out some of these issues with their fellow Republicans. Sort of like the old advice the doctor gave a guy who came in and said "it hurts when I do this"...

"It's not that moderates are electing Democrats," he said. "Conservatives have put up unelectable candidates, and voters have responded."

Hmmm... Sounds familiar...

No, it's that moderates are electing Democrats. See Blackout for more info...

Just wondering, Does TC think the "Traditional Republican Majority" is "group A" or "group B"? Of course I realize this is not about "conservative" vs. "moderate". ;-)

So you would put Chris Craddock and Ken Cuccinelli in group A, right?

Rtwng-

I do not believe Chris to be a devisive man.

I talk to him often, and have a good relationship.

He is honest in what he says, and have never found him to lie.

He is group A.

TC, interesting that you do not comment on Sen. Cuccinelli. I will say that while I don't know Chris that well, I do know Ken Cuccinelli very well. Well enough to know he fits in group A as you've defined it above and in many other ways.
