Same old "leaders" - just a new name.
If they can't get in through the front door, they are going to try and get in through the back door. If we're smart, We'll keep a watchful eye on anything that involves a Rove and a Bush and a Malek and a Coleman.
From the WSJ:
At least half a dozen leaders of the Republican Party have joined forces to create a new political group with the goal of organizing grass-roots support and raising funds ahead of the 2010 midterm elections, according to people familiar with the effort.
The organizational details of the group, expected to be called the American Action Network, are still being worked out, but it is expected to contain both a 501(c)3 and a 501(c)4 component. In simpler terms, a 501(c)3 can advocate on policy matters while a 501(c)4 is an election arm.
Republican leaders expected to be affiliated with the group include former Minnesota Sen. Norm Coleman, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, former Bush adviser Karl Rove, Republican strategist Ed Gillespie, and Republican donor Fred Malek.
A House leadership aide told Washington Wire today that Rob Collins, a political operative and senior aide to House Minority Whip Eric Cantor of Virginia, is leaving Capitol Hill to be the executive director of the 501(c)4.
The comeback of Norm Coleman and Karl Rove and Bush's is certainly an indication that Americans indeed have very short memories. All of these "losers" coming back and being active in the spotlight of American politics is a clear indicator that they indeed have the power to rebound, and will shadow their illegal and immoral activities into the future of our national elections and policy.
What really stands out in this announcement? These miserable Republican right-wing miscreants formed a new political group and did not invite Mrs. Palin, the real-Amerikan, gun-totin’, lyin', illiterate sweetheart of the Republican Party and the Tea Baggers. Insult or injury? Maybe they just couldn't afford her "fee".
The Project for the New American Century is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to a few fundamental propositions: that American leadership is good both for America and for the world; and that such leadership requires military strength, diplomatic energy and commitment to moral principle.
The Project for the New American Century intends, through issue briefs, research papers, advocacy journalism, conferences, and seminars, to explain what American world leadership entails. It will also strive to rally support for a vigorous and principled policy of American international involvement and to stimulate useful public debate on foreign and defense policy and America's role in the world.

Those who forget the past are doomed to relive it, and if we forget what the founders of PNAC did to our country by ignoring this new group of fascist aggressors, we will be doomed to relive what PNAC wrought upon our country!
