It's not often that anyone asks you to stomach a posting on GOPUSA, but you might find some heart in the posting of
An Open Letter to All Conservatives
This letter sounds scared. And heading towards anger.
Education, Affirmative Action, Medicare, Immigration, Gay Marriage, Spending. The president is under attack from his base, traditional conservatives and evangelical Christians who are up-in-arms. A couple weeks ago in a front page story in the Washington Times, conservative groups were voicing their displeasure, promising a lot of griping at this week's C-PAC conference, a bastion of conservative activists, pundits, and conservative legislators. They are threatening to pull their financial support for the president's re-election. The fight has been joined.
We have a question. Are conservatives suffering from short-term memory loss? Did we learn nothing from the aftermath of the Reagan Revolution, when we failed to close the deal, the Contract for America, Impeachment? Does the word "overreaching" ring any bells? Conservatives all across this great land, please, pay attention. You're on the precipice of blowing it all over again.
Their argument is full of the regular bilge, but the tone is different. It's almost... beseeching.
