Wow... this makes no sense to me.
Anyone else see the irony of harshly attacking a fellow Republican for... harshly attacking fellow Republicans?
Seriously, though: I strongly believe in Reagan's 11th Commandment - but you have to draw a line in the sand SOMEWHERE, where you say "once you cross this line, as far as I am concerned, you are no longer a Republican worthy of the 11th Commandment." Where is that line? Well, it varies for all. For Bob, it was supporting the largest tax grab in Oregon's history. I can respect that. That's a well defined line.
If you have no line, then what is to stop democratics from just saying "oh yeah, we're Republicans now" and demanding party support?
Draw your line - and defend it!
Jack, it is time for you to realize: the era of playing nice is over. We are in the greatest crisis most of us (all of us born after 1945) have ever experienced in our lifetimes. Playing nice will destroy America. We need to fight hard and win without any more "compromise" pushing America further to the left towards the precipice of outright socialism.
