Guest Post by Mike LaRoche
Fresh off of the Republican Party establishment’s disastrous showing in last month’s presidential election, and with the federal government seemingly heading toward an alleged “fiscal cliff” amidst a bitter budget battle, “conservative” columnist and Team Romney head cheerleader Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post unloads on her favorite targets: Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) and the Tea Party.
First off they are a year and a half late. The GOP’s offer of more revenue was first made in the summer of 2011. Republicans offered revenue again in the supercommittee. And if the no-to-everything crowd is going to primary people they should include Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), and dozens of other solid conservatives who have supported this approach for more than a year. When primarying incumbent conservatives, full disclosure would require that those doing the primarying acknowledge their other brilliant challengers included Richard Mourdock, Sharron Angle, Christine O’Donnell, Todd Akin and Ken Buck — losers all.
Losers just like your RINO hero Mitt Romney, right Ms. Rubin?
Also, “revenues?” Just call them what they are: higher taxes.
