The battle for the heart and soul of the Republican Party has begun. On one side is the Tea Party. On the other side stand Karl Rove and his establishment team, posing as tacticians while quietly undermining conservatism.

Yesterday, the New York Times reported that the “biggest donors in the Republican Party” have joined forces with Karl Rove and Steven J. Law, president of American Crossroads, to create the Conservative Victory Project. The Times reports that this new group will dedicate itself to “recruit seasoned candidates and protect Senate incumbents from challenges by far-right conservatives and Tea Party enthusiasts who Republican leaders worry could complicate the party’s effort to win control of the Senate.” The group points to candidates like Christine O’Donnell in Delaware and Richard Mourdock in Indiana as examples of Tea Party primary picks going sideways in major Senatorial battles.

But it is American Crossroads and its ilk that have run the GOP into the ground. Spending millions of dollars on useless 30,000-ft. advertising campaigns during the last election cycle, training candidates to soften conservatism in order to appeal to “moderates,” blowing up the federal budget under George W. Bush as a bipartisan tactic – all of those strategies led the party to a disastrous defeat in 2012. The Tea Party, which may nominate losers from time to time, also brought the Republicans their historic 2010 Congressional victory. If Tea Party candidates lose, it’s because they weren’t good candidates; if GOP establishment candidates lose, it’s because they weren’t good conservatives. The choice for actual conservatives should be easy.

    Because Rove is NOT a Conservative and we will never go away. We will fight the RINO's of the Nation until the end.

    More reason for me to dislike Rove, aside from his IRRITATING mispronunciation of state names. So he wants to change the Republican Party, does he? They need to get a clue and kick out the RINOs and stop apologizing for freedom or they're going to keep losing. But I'm guessing that's the point. Either way, the socialcommiegressives win.

    Rove represents the old guard of the republican and it was the Roves in their midst that cost The Reublican party the last election. Time the Old Goats where sent off to the dairy farm and used for producing cheese. They are most certainly usless at coming up with anything new by way of effective policies that the We The People crowd want to see.

    The Tea Party is the the New Broom that will modernise and make the Repblican party into a young vibrant, fit and electable force. That is capable of creating the politics that Americans want and desperately need, to get their country back and running efficiently and effectively.

    The 'tea party' is not a real party but a social and political ism. It was and is a ground roots organization without elected leaders that draws it power from the mass of dedicated believers willing to vote their conviction. The people have and always will have power of government if they choose and commit to making a change. No government can survive if the people decide it is time to change it. The Constitution supports this position. It is part of our very fiber. So if Rove wants a fight he can bring it on.

    Rove GOP Republicans because...
    This is going to be fascinating to watch. Big Money vs. The RWNJ Minions they organized to help them win elections. Welp, guess what: Dr. Frankenstein is being attacked by the monster he created.

    As the establishment GOP squelched all the hard righties and wackadoodles in the presidential nomination process - they will use their billions to do the same at the state and district level. Will they always succeed? Nope. But I suspect their batting average will be well above .500.

    In any case - get out the popcorn. This is going to be fun to watch....

    The same morons who think that investing in education is wasteful, I guess. Or who want our schools to teach our kids that the universe was created 6,000 years ago.

    Yep. Those morons.

    It's not the Tea Party that needs to come back to the GOP it's the other way around. Too long have we followed these RINO's and been lead to slaughter. Too long have we listened to the lie that they were conservative and seen their vaginas. Too long have we waited for the GOP to prove themselves worthy of our votes, Now is the time for them to come back to us. If the Republican Party wants our votes ,then they need to return to the conservative calues we hold dear. Ferret out the RINO's and be what you say. We will no longer believe the lies of the extablishment. We want no more of the backdoor deals that rob us of our freedoms . Give us back our liberty.
