On establishment Republican calls to conservatives to tone down their rhetoric…
It really frosts me, the idea… that conservatives, speaking openly and honestly about conservatism is somehow gonna cause independents to run away, and to where? A party populated by the meanest, most extreme bunch of people in American politics today. We’re told the independents want bipartisanship. We’re told the independents want people to get along. And so here comes a conservative who’s not combative, he’s just being honest…(“The independents don’t like that, you’re gonna send them right back to the Democrats…”) There’s no meaner political group of people in America today than today’s Democrats. There’s no more combative group of people in American politics today than America’s Democrats. There’s no more extreme group of people in American politics today than the Democrat party. Where is it written that these independents are gonna flock to that? They’re not flocking to that. They’re flocking away from it.
