      •  If they are concerned about fracking, (0+ / 0-)

        they might want to work on convincing establishment Dems to be concerned as well...

          •  Hmmm. (0+ / 0-)

            Did you read the original comment to which I responded?

            Even my Republican Relatives are starting to get the message the fracking is the worst possible means to extract natural gas.  I was amazed during my recent trip to Colorado to hear them criticizing fracking and it destruction of our water resources.

            You know, because Obama et al support fracking....

            •  Of course I read it , (0+ / 0-)

              that's why I asked ,

              They are republicans ?
              It seems odd that republicans should be asked to talk with
              establishment defenders of the Democratic Party.
              I still don't get it .

              Why have republicans talk to establishment defenders of the Democratic Party ?

              They are not supporters / contributors / voters for ...
              I would think they would have zero pull with Dems .

              It might be more fruitful for the "Republican Relatives" to talk with their leader on the republican side .

              •  Well, first, it was snark, and second, (0+ / 0-)

                if Republicans are truly concerned, they would probably feel moved to discuss it with anyone who needs convincing. And third, some have a lot more in common with establishment Dems than we do, so they might be comfortable and effective than we are...
