There is absolutely no debating we have seen a tea-party influenced shift of the GOP to the far right over the past few years. With numerous long serving, ranking, and highly respected GOP congressman forced out in the midterms and the primaries leading up to this election.
And Romeny insiders have recently leaked that Chris Christie, the NJ governor whose recent praise of Obama and his response to hurricane Sandy has certainly hurt Romeny’s momentum, had been Romeny’s first choice. But he went with the Ayn Rand embracing, tea-party golden boy Paul Ryan to appease the far right.
But if Romeny looses? Will the GOP stand up to it’s loud minority? Admit that they have been led down a path that does not jive with the majority of thier party?
Will the core of the gop, that represents the core of the americans that have long supported them say enough? Get back to the important business of america? Recognize they represent, at best, half of america- and that they must do what has made our nation great fro so long- compromise. Trade horses. Work together in the interest of all americans?
Or will they shift farther to the right? Continue to put americas interests behind that oftheir own thirst for power? Can they really sleep at night if they are willing to spend another 4 years blocking progress in the hope that the worse things get the better their chances are?
