Yes, I do subscribe to several different conservative news and commentary sites. I do have a strong stomach. This article from GOPUSA, Republicans lose faith in party leadership, sheds light on how things look from their side of the fence. It’s definitely not greener if we judge by the numbers. It also highlights how the trade debate is exposing the corporate lackey’s to their friends on the right.
A new Pew Research Center poll shows that America is unhappy with the GOP led Congress. In fact, Americans are disgusted as Republican congressional leaders only registered a 22% overall approval rating.
What is especially significant is that the poll shows this anger is bi-partisan. Only 41% of Republicans approve of the performance of the GOP congressional leadership. This is much lower than the 60% approval rating GOP leaders received in 2011 and the 78% approval rating they received from Republicans in 1995, months after the party took control of Congress for the first time in 40 years.
Looks like many conservatives share progressive views on American jobs…
This trade promotion authority would force Congress to accept the upcoming Trans-Pacific Partnership between the United States and 11 other nations without any amendments. It would require Congress to schedule an up or down vote on the trade pact, creating “fast track” legislation. Many conservatives are leery of any trade deal that gives the President more power and might lead to the further dissolution of American manufacturing jobs. Both Boehner and McConnell are supportive of this agreement, which critics label as another gift to big business at the expense of middle class America.
And fourth amendment privacy…
After passing a trade deal, McConnell will turn to renewing the Patriot Act, despite major NSA abuses and a significant invasion of the privacy of ordinary Americans. It is another issue that pits GOP leadership against the majority of Republicans.
And for someone to govern of, by, and for the people and not the corporations Even if Mitt Romney thinks corporations are people…
Clearly, congressional Republicans are not advancing a conservative agenda or stopping President Obama. This betrayal of conservatism is reflected in the Pew poll. The stage is now set for the 2016 presidential race where true conservative candidates will be facing establishment backed candidates like former Florida Governor Jeb Bush.
If an establishment Republican is nominated, millions of conservatives will be disgusted and will bid farewell to the GOP. This will insure that the Republican Party, which has lost the popular vote in 5 out of the last 6 presidential elections, will lose again.
Are you listening Blaine Luetkemeyer? His campaign donors look like Blaine is an establishment vote for sure. What do you think? These are the top four groups in dollars contributed.
